If there is one thing that we know about the Democratic Party, it is that they are prone to hysteria.
In fact, it appears to be an innate feature of the group, who often come parading to the podium just moments after any tragic event in American history, hoping to mold the sorrow to fit their agenda.
They are the party of “never letting a good crisis go to waste“, and this is true still in the wake of the Robb Elementary School massacre in Uvalde, Texas.
Democrats are preparing a large gun control package to be considered in House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
The package, dubbed, “Protecting Our Kids,” includes eight bills designed to erode citizens’ Second Amendment rights.
The eight bills are extremely wide-ranging.
Reportedly included in the massive gun control package are provisions to ban high-capacity magazines, increase the purchase age of semi-automatics from 18 to 21, ban bump stocks for civilian use while requiring existing bump stocks to be registered with the government, change the definition of “ghost guns” so they fall under background checks at point of sale, increase penalties for gun trafficking, and mandate how Americans store firearms in their homes.
According to Punchbowl News, the bill’s names and sponsors are:
- The Raise the Age Act (H.R. 3015, Rep. Anthony Brown of Maryland)
- Prevent Gun Trafficking Act (H.R. 2280, Rep. Robin Kelly of Illinois)
- The Untraceable Firearms Act (H.R. 3088, Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island)
- Ethan’s Law (H.R. 748, Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut)
- The Safe Guns, Safe Kids Act (H.R. 6370, Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan)
- The Kimberly Vaughan Firearm Safe Storage Act (H.R. 130, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas)
- Closing the Bump Stock Loophole Act (H.R. 5427, Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada)
- The Keep Americans Safe Act (H.R. 2510, Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida)
President Joe Biden has made plenty of strong statements over the course of the last week in regard to the right to bear arms, including a suggestion that the Second Amendment was “never absolute”; a claim that has many conservatives growing nervous.
