9 Congressional Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control

d

(Breitbart) Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.

And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill–put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)–Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

RELATED: Republican Urges Gun Control, Can’t Explain How It Would Help

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill:

  1. Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
  2. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ)
  3. Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA)
  4. Rep, Ed Royce (R-CA)
  5. Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ)
  6. Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN)
  7. Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA)
  8. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)
  9. Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA)

The push to ban bump stocks is especially rich in light of the fact that using the devices probably made the Vegas attacker less effective than he would have been without them.

After all, bump stocks are made for novelty rather than precision. For this reason, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class special forces soldier Tony Cowden suggests the Vegas attacker could have been deadlier if he had shot slower with a rifle not outfitted with a bump stock…

    It’s time for the voters who sent these RINOS to Washington sponsor a control measure to eject them from office. I have a feeling that these retards have just signed their own ticket out of office. The further we go the more it becomes apparent that we have people in the Republican ranks that are of the same stripe as the Socialist Democrats and it’s past the time to kick them out once and for all.

    • Michael Davidson

      Vote them out for Sure Open Season on Rinos

      • Debbie Bowman

        Know what you mean

    • oneproudsoldier

      None of them have EVER shot gun or a rifle or pistol. And when it comes to them or their families, if someone besides to shoot on them. It’s crazy. This guy had help. There were 2 people shooting, and had to get all those weapons up there to. FBI, CIA, the Left??!! The Left I believe more. There agenda goes all the way up to the president and to the Republicans. And they have 9. That’s a crime in it’s self.

      • Debbie Bowman

        Big. Over up with our crooked government

  • Larry Baker

    If any significant attempt at gun control is passed it will be in the terms of General Mattis “Game ON”. We will march on Washington and throw these idiots out of our house.

    • Debbie Bowman

      Yes sir!!

  • Gasman

    I’m a gun owner and dont believe anyone needs a bump stock. I’v seen them used and after the first $60 of ammo goes in seconds its not much fun anymore. I was in a gun store the other day and the owner and employees all agree that no one needs a bump stock.

    • Papa Bear

      No one needs a Ferrari either but are you going to want to make those illegal too?

      I agree with your assessment on bump stocks BUT if one has the funds to waste on ammo then why not???

      Everyone is all too willing to regulate and confiscate from those who DIDN’T DO ANYTHING!!!

      I am a combat veteran and in my three years of combat I have only used full auto fire three times and that was to keep the enemy’s heads down while we maneuvered to their flank, I prefer well aimed shots which are much more effective and you can only do that in “semi-auto” mode !!!

      • Gasman

        Papa Bear, I appreciate your military sacrifice and agree giving this up could lead to a slippery slope. I feel we can give this up, but absolutely nothing more. But the again, it might be subject to legislation with wording that starts with bump stock and ends with “anything that ejects a projectile”. Keep it all or lose it all.

        • Papa Bear

          WHY and again I ask WHY give ANYTHING up??? Don’t you realize that once you give something up you can NEVER get it back????? Why are you so eager to speak for others (like myself) who don’t want to give ANYTHING we have up. I have always believed it is better to HAVE something and not use or need it than to need something and NOT have it!!!

          Here is a little something to muse over — The best personal defense aid is equitable or superior to whatever may be used against me, you, or us!!!!!. One might want to ask or consider the reasons why so many settlers fled Europe or their other homelands? The 2nd amendment was ratified to ensure the public would be equipped to fight against an army (British generally at that time) and to ensure the greedy whims of the monarchy would have no power in the new world.

          The purpose of the 2nd amendment was to ensure the wealthy didn’t tyrannize and take advantage of the poor to the point of war or revolution in which you-know-who loses and remains or becomes enslaved. It’s only a matter of time before history repeats itself in this young nation as it did so many times “across the pond”, and the framers knew this.

          Since the Bill of Rights was written Crony Capitalist monopolies have been growing. They didn’t acquire their wealth through philanthropy; they are definitely out to get us and that’s not paranoia, it’s just a simple fact of life. Now, lobby groups generally promote interests of the 1% whom basically own the government in a progressively increasing and obvious way.

          When government officials rely on corporations for their career’s stability, and that when these corporations decide they’re capable and ready to enslave the masses [including those government officials], will you/me/we have the personal defense aids necessary to defend our freedom in this modern technological age, or will you/me/we be stuck with rusty armor?”

          We go back to the simple question of “What part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand”. Any law restricting ownership of any firearm written since 1791 is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

          Every Communist must grasp the truth, ‘Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.’ — Mao Tse-tung, 1938, inadvertently endorsing the Second Amendment.

          The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. – Adolph Hitler, April 11 1942

          The right to buy weapons is the right to be free. — A.E. Van Vogt, “The Weapon Shops Of Isher”, ASF December 1942

          Rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon — so long as there is no answer to it — gives claws to the weak. — George Orwell, “You and the Atom Bomb”, 1945

          I suggest you adjust your thought process on this as you nor ANYONE else has the right to dictate policy to me or anyone else

    • mart

      Do you know anyone who needs 5 houses, 10 cars, children, vacations? This is America, it is about freedom of choice, no fan of bump stock so I don’t buy them, see how that works.

    • Michael Davidson

      This is just a Start. Next you’ll see Magazine Bans then all semi autos after that. Hello

    • art frewin

      this all could have been done with a semi and no bump stock. so what is your answer? single shots? perhaps no guns?? that is where this is headed. now i do not want to make your decisions for you. i will leave that to you. i do not want anyone including the government to make my decisions for me. what is so hard to understand about that? making autos highly regulated was illegal to begin with. legalize all autos without government restrictions. do you want to reduce crime??? legalize all drugs! we only make problems for ourselves and solve nothing, nothing at all.

  • Buzz Waldron

    Passing any gun control starts us on DOWN The Slippery Slope… vote these 9 Republicans out in favor of Conservatives !!!

    • Papa Bear

      Buzz our 2nd Amendment rights have been usurped for decades. And the reason is APATHY!!! People refuse to stand up for their rights believing the government and ALLOWING this to happen. Apathy gives tacit approval that what government does is acceptable!!!

      Folks the government is taking our freedom and liberty from us. I want to know what part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” isn’t clear.

      There comes a time when one needs to stand for the Constitution or die by legislation one usurpetive bill/statute at a time. I fully intend not to go quietly into the night and disappear

      • Charles Edwards

        And Papa Bear, they are NOT “2nd Amendment rights.” Read the words carefully. “…shall not be infringed,” doesn’t create nor convey any rights to anyone. Those words handcuff government. The source of our rights is our Creator – so says the Declaration of Independence. This may seem to some a trivial point, but it is vital to defend. Because, if rights come from a document, or government (rather than our Creator), those rights can be removed or altered at whim. Our form of government acknowledges inalienable rights, which are NOT subject to anybody’s whim – not even a vote of the majority. A result of this reasoning is that, were the 2nd amendment somehow gone tomorrow, it would not alter our God-given right to keep and bear arms one bit.

        • Papa Bear

          You are indeed correct these are inherent rights that god has given to us. The framers new the mindset of people in power and authored the Bill of Rights to curb government interference into our lives. Little did they know the mind (or vacuum) of a lieberal nor did they consider the apathy of the American people. I fully agree with you that should the second amendment be nullified it would not change anything except make me a criminal or domestic terrorist which I am reasonably sure I am already.

          • Patriot47

            The only fault in your argument that the framers didn’t forsee gubmint over-reach is the Constitution itself which is the agreement by the people to limit gubmint’s shenanigans. Reading the whole document, it is clear its whole purpose is to fence gubmint IN. The framers understood power and its corruption perfectly.

        • Maddawg

          While some idiots will argue the case, what animal in the wild kingdom is not allowed to defend itself with anything that it has, or possibly can use to defend itself or able to use whatever tools nature & time have provided to itself ? Does a wild cat, of any sort, not use its teeth and claws to both defend and provide for itself? Does not deer and other similar species use their horns and antlers to defend and even provide for themselves? Even other primates uses tools it finds or creates for offensive or defensive purposes.. Name any species, and you’ll find something that the species uses to provide for itself or to defend itself.. So, what makes man the exception that it should not use tools it designed, or evolved, to either provide for or defend itself ? Because some politician or part of their voter base feels like it should be so ? No, they expect you and I to roll over and take it…Screw them!

    • mart

      You are absolutely correct, give those lying, hippocrits an inch and it is over. Why don’t we leave our guns alone and ban morons, idiots and politicians, I have owned guns for over 50 years and so far all my family and friends are doing just fine.Must be my white privilege.

    • Michael Davidson

      Agreed, I will support as many conservatives as possible

      • Lester E. Martin Jr.

        I think they ( THE POLITICIANS ) should stop enacting more gun control and enact more criminal control ! ! ” WE THE PEOPLE ” have the ” GOD GIVEN RIGHT'” to defend ourselves and our loved ones and ” NO” politician should “EVER “have the right to tell us ( “U.S. ” ) otherwise !! If “THE POLITICIANS ”
        keep up the ” B.S. ” that they are throwing around in WASHINGTON, then they should ” ALL BE REPLACED ” then maybe something will get done ! ! ! When new politicians get elected, they go to WASHINGTON with the idea that they will change the way things are done, instead they soon fall victim of the ” GOOD OL’ BOYS CLUB ” and their ideas go down the drain ! ! I never got to serve in the military due to health problems never the less I still love this country, respect the flag, the National Anthem and obey the laws ! If anyone can”t accept this country for what it is, then get the H%&L out. Go to another country disrespect what their heritage stands for and see how long they stay alive ! ! ! !

    9 Congressional Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control

    Pres. Trump should set thees good people down and have a good talk on what He wants on gun control, OR MAKE THEIR LIFE HE## IN OFFICE .

  • minefinder624

    When you’re firing into a packed crowd you’re only aiming at the crowd- not individuals. Just getting lots of bullets into the general area is the purpose. The bump stock allows this to happen. As Buzz correctly observes, however, the slope gets slippery when this that or the next thing starts to be included in the banning. A delicate procedure (banning) to say the very least. Some sort of legislation regarding banning procedures should be enacted (assuming it already does not exist) such that the 2A is protected.

    • Born in the South and proud

      Legislation is not needed. The ATF is the proper place for this to be handled. Of course then the congressional and senate idiots would miss their 5 minutes in the sun trying to look like they have the interest of they people in mind. I call a big B.S.

  • Walter Bazner

    According to the article, the proposed bill is NOT just about bump stocks, it says Curbelo’s bill explicitly bans certain accessories etc. That is very broad, telescopes, certain sights could be included & on and on. What would be considered an accessory ??

    • Papa Bear

      I’ll tell you what the “target accessory is in one word US!!!! Without US a firearm is just another paperweight!!!

    • Dave

      Think back to Feinstein’s original assault weapon ban…
      – it is a military weapon of war (or looks like one)
      – it has an adjustable stock
      – it has a grip and/or thumb hole
      – it uses interchangeable box magazines
      – it uses magazines holding more than 10 rounds
      – it has a carry handle
      – it has a bayonet lug
      – it has a flash hider

  • Mac mcintire

    These rhinos along with most of senate have to go. Never have a seen a more inept bunch led by rings in name only. Closet democrats

  • Maggietish

    Surprise that the Republicans are once again betraying the American people. I keep saying that the Republicans and Democrats are exactly the same there is no difference between them. They jump on and get excited about anything that’s anti-American and anything that takes away our rights. We the people have to vote all of those who are were elected to serve, and have forctoo long ignored that, out of office immediately. Wake up America have you had more than enough. These people whether they be Republicans or Democrats all retire as multimillionaires all on the backs of the American taxpayers who are struggling to survive through the abysmal and failed policies that they’ve inflicting on us over the last 20 years. Term limits are a must if we are to survive at all.

    • Conservative Christian

      There is no difference between Republican and Democrats both are globalist it’s the conservatives that are the difference just because you’re conservative doesn’t mean you’re Republican and you surely aren’t conservative if you’re Republican. Conservatives are for the Constitution and we the people

  • patrick sain

    Time to kick theses corrupt crooks out no gun control will do theses criminals in Washington are nuts do your dam job in force the laws on the books

  • richard black

    doesnt suprise me….east coast and left coast…RINOS at best !!!

  • anthony j. manzo

    I have ONE question for these and all other Idiots who scream for more gun laws. Stupids laws don’t work. Just in case you haven’t known it there is a law against murder. That if obeyed would prevent all these shootings. So you idiots should see if they choose not to obey the LAW against murder, what kind of an imbecile would believe they would obey ANY and ALL LAWS. I rest my case. More and tougher law enforcement is the answer, BACK THE POLICE.

    • Charles Edwards

      Let’s ask another question of those clamoring for gun laws in the name of safety. Who has been responsible for the worst mass murders in history? Answer – tyrannical governments – AFTER disarming their populations. The examples are numerous and the body counts eclipse these active shooter tragedies by several orders of magnitude! Our founders understood the natural tendency of governments to become corrupt, and overbearing. They did their best to implement checks and balances to stymie selfish ambition and fallen human nature. But, they also ensured our God-given right to defend ourselves (even against the government if necessary) was secured by the 2nd amendment. No compromise – give no ground on this issue!

  • Michael Machnica

    “Novelty item” is a superb way to explain those things. As mentioned below, when a hand-held firearm is fired that rapidly, it becomes uncontrollable for accuracy. Along with all the additional problems such as overheating that quickly arise.

  • icemancold

    This so called Bump Stock Ban is a backdoor bill that will ultimately end up snowballing into a ban of all semi automatic firearms.

  • Chili Bean

    It’s not gun control that’s needed it’s Liberal Judges, Prosecutors, and Governors that completely fail in their solemn oath by not upholding current laws. Like if: you can kill people; no continual appeals you die too! If you commit a crime with a gun you get the max. If you are caught committing a crime in the possession of a gun you get the max. If you are in possession of an illegal gun you go to jail. I can’t think of any gun control law that would have as much impact as prosecuting current laws.

  • John Doe

    I guarantee not one of these A** Holes have even operates a Slide Fire or bump fire to see that after the first round, all other rounds are wayyyy off target. Especially at 400 yards. The Ranger is right when he says the shooter could have been more accurate WITHOUT the bump fire. But the politicians are F*** Heads that sit on the Tw***, And make laws that have no meaning.

  • Highlighting the vulnerability of the Second Amendment.

    Could it be that the Second Amendment’s partially to blame for what took place in Las Vegas?

    Had the constitutional framers not replaced the Biblical responsibility to bear arms in defense of ourselves, our families, and others (per Psalm 149:6-9 and 1 Timothy 5:8) for the Enlightenment right to do so (per the Second Amendment), Paddock and other murders would be less likely to attempt such shootings knowing that every Christian would probably be armed and ready to take them out at the first sign of their intentions.

    Furthermore, an optional right is much more liable for control and limitation than is a non-optional responsibility.

    Case in point: The Amendment WITH the wording “shall not be infringed” is the MOST infringed, licensed, and limited Amendment of the entire twenty seven. Furthermore, a future generation of our posterity is likely to see the Second Amendment whittled away entirely or repealed altogether. This is inherent nature and danger of optional Enlightenment rights versus non-optional Biblical responsibilities, such as the following:

    “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword [or today’s equivalent in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye Yah.” (Psalm 149:6-9)

    “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house [including spiritual and physical protection], he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)

    Under the Second Amendment, it’s your optional right to protect your family. According to 1 Timothy 5:8, you’re worse than infidel if you fail to do so. Which do think is more potent? What do you think the pre-Second Amendment Americans looked to for their authority to bear arms?

    For more, listen to “The Second Amendment: A Knife in a Gunfight,” delivered at the Springfield, Missouri Firearms and Freedom Symposium, at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.com/#FeaturedMessages.

    At this same location, you will also find a radio interview Larry Pratt (Executive Director of Gun Owners of America) conducted with me on this same subject. I think you’ll find Mr. Pratt’s remarks especially
    interesting.

    this is really pissing me off. it seems there are a few repubs that are really incognito. vote them out. i really have no use for an auto, but that does not mean i should not be able to own one without the government restricting me. these laws were started to battle the mafia during prohibition. well the criminals did not get rid of their autos, but the honest citizens were denied the opportunity to have them and be on equal footing. they can ban one thing after another until they control all those weapons. legalize all auto’s, the ban on auto’s is a restriction on my unalienable right to protect my self with state of the art arms, not something the government feels is right for us.

    i certainly hope that those representatives that are not for the people should be removed, but it seems for some reason people in certain states vote them in. i certainly hope that we can put the fear of god in them and let all those running for office know we do not want restrictions on our weapons. we do not want a state or a national registration. we do not want our mags restricted. i hope that this next election will make that perfectly clear. those states that these aholes are in should have a lot of calls from their citizens letting them know that this is unacceptable. start calling and let them know. my state was not involved, but if it were, they would get a piece of my mind.

    Well, we know who they are now. I’ll bet NONE of them can explain what a bump stock is or how it works.

    Frankly, IF I wanted to mass kill people I would definitely have NOT used a bump stock on any of my weapons NOR WOULD I HAVE SMUGGLED 13, 17, 23 OR HOWEVER MANY WEAPONS there were into that room or THOSE roomS. This is where the lone shooter narrative and the other BS crumbles before logic.

      It sounds like you might have been in the military around the same time I was!! I was in the Army about a year when it went from the A1, to the A2, and I agree 3 to 5 round auto fire is perfect. It saves ammo it keeps the weapon from floating up, and you can blue barrel or burn a M16 barrel up!! But yes in my 8 years married to a M16, 3-4-5 rounds did the trick much better.

  • Ruckweiler

    To the voters for these clowns, the ball is in your court.

  • Sim Dunn

    What is the purpose of having the right to own/possess a gun, if the “RIGHT”
    to use that gun does come with the right of ownership???

    Legal Ownership and possession of a gun automatically confers the right to use
    that gun for the purpose it was created, in defense the law, of life, property,
    and our Freedoms.

    Most people understand the defense of Life and property, but few seem to understand the defense of Freedom using a gun.

    Kidnapping is a serious crime, the subject is restrained or confined
    and their freedom is taken from them, most would understand using a gun
    for defense against this type of crime.

    But what about some person, or group of persons, doing the same thing to all of society,
    setting up a tyrannical government without our Constitutional Freedoms
    and confined to labor camps for all who opposed this government???

    It’s been demonstrated that a frog dropped in hot water will attempt to
    jump out, but if the frog is placed in cold water and the temperature
    slowly raised, the frog will stay there until it’s cooked.

    People are the same way, any out right attack on our freedoms would result in a
    war, but if the freedoms were slowly eroded away, people would be
    unconcerned until their “Goose was cooked”.

    This is why the word “Vigilance” was used so many times by the founding Fathers of our Constitution.

    Vigilance:
    the state of being constantly attentive and responsive to signs of opportunity, activity, or danger

    To paraphrase G.Washington who said:……”Governments who take guns do so because they have evil intentions”.

    Second Amendment:
    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free
    State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
    infringed.”

    in·fringe·ment
    1. the action of breaking the terms of a law, agreement, etc.; violation: “copyright infringement”
    2. the action of limiting or undermining something:

    There’s been hundreds of interpretations of the Second Amendment, but all have perverted the plain meaning of words.

    “How strangly will the tools of a tyrant pervert the plain meaning of words”.
    Samuel Adams 1723-1802 Letter to John Pitts Jan 21, 1776.

    Banning “bump stock”, a 30 round clip, an automatic, government
    approval of ownership (Back Ground Check) paying a “fee” to exercise the
    Second amendment,

    A little here, a little there, undermining the Second Amendment until the goose is cooked.

    Now here the big question, how many people believe we have a Legal
    right to use those guns against people perverting the plain meaning of
    words to justify their infringement on the Second Amendment???

    If you were on a jury, would you vote guilty for someone who shot/killed
    Hillary Clinton, a woman who said she would use the government and law
    enforcement to make Christians give up their Religious beliefs???

    And how many others are there like Hillary still operating in Government????

    Of all the reasons for owning a gun, of all the reasons for including the Second Amendment in the Bill of Right,

    “Political Assassinations” of would be tyrants was the number one reason.

    Guns,and ammo, make the “PEOPLE” the most powerful force in America,

    and it’s the only way a government “OF THE PEOPLE” and “FOR THE PEOPLE”, can continues to be “BY THE PEOPLE”.

    All the Hitlers, Stalin, Mao Tze Tung, are not dead, we see people just like them and with the same intentions, everyday on TV,

    But vigilance is obviously not observed by most.

    I predict it will die in committee…The very last thing the Rinos need to further erode their hold on power with 2018 around the corner and primaries looming is to sleep with the dems on gun control when they’ve done nothing to brag at home about with their stubby little thumbs in the air. Talking about bills they sponsored and “tried to get done for the American people” is how they pander. It’s always someone else’s fault why they failed to actually do anything positive. This falls under the heading of split district pandering. No strong red congressmen in the group. They’re all from purple districts…

    If we are going to Outlaw Bump Stocks to keep people from easily converting a Semi-Automatic to Full-Automatic, we must also Outlaw Belt Loops and Rubber Bands. They can both be used to take a Semi-Automatic to Full-Automatic. Maybe we should just pass a Law making it Illegal to convert a Semi-Automatic to a Full-Automatic by any means. Then people would not be doing it because it is Illegal. I am sure it the Las Vegas Shooter had know he was facing a 5 years sentence for using a Bump Stock he would have not used it.

    • Charles Edwards

      Not to be too picky, but none of the items you list converts anything to full-automatic. They cause a semi-automatic rifle to simulate the behavior of a full-automatic. One could grab a motor out of a kid’s toy, add a cam, install in front of the trigger, add a push-button and battery for power, and again, you’d have a way of cycling the trigger – far more efficiently I might add than a bump stock.

  • HardingDies

    Peter King has ALWAYS been a RINO!

  • Jon Blake

    They;re all must be up for re-election. Its a foolish move nonetheless.

  • jesse

    First of all, there’s plenty of experts who are skeptical as to whether bump-fire stocks were even used by the shooter(s) in Vegas; secondly, all these knee-jerk, leftist RINOs need to be fired ASAP!

    • Debbie Bowman

      Yeahhhhhh

    I’m a gun owner and an Army vet. Owned guns all my life. I like them. I own ARs, shotguns and handguns. I don’t want to lose the right to own the kind of guns I like. This comment isn’t about the ban, its about a stupid statement. The article says bump stocks don’t turn semi automatic weapons into full auto. They don’t make a weapon select fire that’s true. I guess in lawyer mumbo jumbo they don’t make a weapon full auto either. When they increase the rate of fire to hundreds of rounds per minute there’s no practical difference. If I put a sock on a Louisville Slugger and then smack you in the head with an out of the park homerun swing, technically I haven’t hit you with a bat, I smacked you with a sock. If your head can still think after that you probably won’t appreciate the difference. Like I said, not a comment on the ban but on a questionable statement.

  • Conservative Christian

    Be careful because it seems like a lot of people who comment on here actually don’t know Who is a Rino, besides the McCains, and Grahams Etc… I have had so called Conservatives or Republicans, which honestly I think they never paid attention to politics until Obama got into office call our Top Conservatives!!! Rinos. Please educate yourself and go to the Liberty CR Grading Report and learn who the top 25 worst Rinos are, and also the top 25 Best Conservatives. Just because you don’t like a Senator or House Rep doesn’t mean their Rinos.

  • George Blumel

    Over 90% of incumbents in congress are reelected. The only way to get rid of RINOs like that group is to term limit congress as most governors, many state legislatures and the president have limited terms. http://www.termlimits.org

  • Harry Pearson

    Here’s a good start at a list of people we need to get out of Congress at the next possible point…their next election!! Let’s keep the list growing and pretty soon, we’ll have implemented Term Limits…without Congress!

  • organic granny

    Bump stocks aren’t even relevant anymore. As usual, ignorant politicians jump on the bandwagon before the horses are even out of their stalls.

    MSM is not reporting the whole story. Go to Newsmax.com and watch/read the daily show updates this week. The Schnitt Show is a good start. The experts now identify the guns used on the crowd as belt-driven ammo feed, not gimmicky bump stocks.

    Major lying and coverup are involved, and people need to demand the truth.

  • Joan Rensmeyer

    are there any real Republicans left ?

  • barbarakelly

    OH, YOU RHINO’S , YOUR DAY IS COMING. YOU CAN’T SEE THE REAL PICTURE LIKE THE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE CAN. IT’S THESE GUNS THAT ARE PROTECTING US RIGHT NOW FROM ALL THE HIDDEN ISIS MUSLIMS THAT ARE IN OUR COUNTRY —-AND THAT IS NO THANKS TO BIMBO OBAMA. TO THE DUMB DEMS WHO ALLOWED THE PEOPLE INTO OUR COUNTRY —JUST LIKE THE TROJAN HORSE —- WELL THAT DAY WILL COME AND HAUNT YOU , BY THEN IT WILL BE TO LATE TO CLOSE THE GATES. WHY DO YOU THINK WE WANT THAT WALL UP. —–YOU DUMB DEMS.!!!!

  • Togo360

    RINOS…smh

  • Michael Brown

    I don’t have a problem with the bump stock regulations. Neither does the NRA. So I’m fine with this.

  • Julie Adams

    I’m so sick of ignorant lawmakers making decisions for the country when they have no idea what they’re talking about.

  • Willie the 6’snake in the barn

    Never heard of any of them except Peter King.What is so idiotic about ALL of this is that you can NEVER legislate some one NOT killing another. The corrupted, criminal heart of someone bent on destroying a life will NEVER obey a law. 18Thousand PLUS shot in Chicago on Omammys watch, 39 HUNDRED PLUS killed in Chicago on Omammys watch. BTW RHAM EMANUEL, Omammys BUDDY runs Chicago.
    Look at Chicago, Philly, L.A., New Orleans, Atlanta, Miami, St. Louis, Baltimore, etc etc.They have some of the strictest gun controls and the MOST MURDERS. Oh I think they are all,if not MOSTLY DEMOCRAT RUN CITIES

  • Old lady in Texas

    Kick everyone of these jerks out of congress!!!!!!! They have NO love for our country so why do the idiots in their states keep sending them back??? I hope and pray, the next time they run, they have GOOD COMPETITION who WILL WIN!

  • Louie Rey

    I think the only sensible gun law is this one. I’m not a gun enthusiast so I’m not that well versed in these things but thanks to the Vegas massacre I’ve learned what a bump stock is. And I have to admit, it should not be a routine procedure to make a semi-automatic weapon into a functionally automatic weapon. Automatic weapons belong on a battlefield not on the Vegas Strip or anywhere else on the streets of this country.

  • David Ciambrone

    I think they should pass a law that states that ALL states honor concealed handgun licenses from all other states like driver’s licenses. The HONEST citizens who posses these licenses are NOT the ones causing crimes. The nits and criminals are and new and tighter gun laws will not stop a crook.

  • Dan Topp

    It’s an asinine thing to do to a nice rifle,but the law will be twisted around and added to till the grabbers are satisfied.

  • Steven David Cessna

    total waste of tax dollars

  • Bonnie Treitler

    well we know what so called rhinos need to be voted out. we have a God give right to protect ourselves from these thugs who don’t want to work but want what other people have. they ought to hang those who commit murder instead of giving them 10 years of appeals. if their found guilty fry them or hang them. maybe if they where tougher laws putting these useless, murdering, bunch of thugs. if criminals do not buy guns at the nearest gun shop. when they want one they find them on the street.

  • John

    As long as murder is against the law and people are willing to break that law, what new statute could you possibly put on the books would these people obey , what would stop them.
    I’m not a gun owner but I believe in the 2nd Amendment and support any sane, legal, non criminal citizens right to own them. I have no issue with the rich and famous have private armed security,just when those same people complain about us little people owning them.
