When you see a RINO ALERT from WeLoveTrump, it’s time to print out this article, email it to your friends and family, and be ready to vote these RINOs out at the next election!
President Trump needs strong, real Republicans in Congress.
In the latest RINO attack, eight Republicans sided with Democrats to mandate universal background checks on gun sales.
If you’re following along in your head, you immediately understand this would criminalize private, non-government sanctioned gun sales.
And it would lead to a national registry.
And that would lead to…….well, let’s have Congressman Jim Jordan explain to us what happens next:
Here's more on the story, from U.S. News:
THE DEMOCRATIC-LED House on Wednesday passed a bill mandating universal background checks in a historic vote on the most significant piece of gun control legislation in years.
The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, sponsored by Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., passed largely along party lines, 240-190. The bill now faces a steep uphill battle as it heads to the GOP-controlled Senate.
Eight Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the bill. Along with King, four other Republicans are co-sponsors, including Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Fred Upton of Michigan, Brian Mast of Florida and Chris Smith of New Jersey. Meanwhile, two Democrats defected to oppose the bill.
The bill would require universal background checks for all firearm sales, including private transactions. Current federal law only mandates background checks for purchases from licensed gun dealers.
"Gun violence is a true national emergency," said Thompson, who noted that he's an avid hunter. "If this bill did anything to erode gun rights … I wouldn't support it and have my name on it."
The gun-control measure has been met by opposition from most Republicans and the National Rifle Association. President Donald Trump has already indicated that he'd veto the legislation if it made it to his desk.
But a Republican amendment was adopted to the chagrin of Democratic leadership, which would require U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be notified when a person in the country illegally attempts to buy a firearm. In a surprising move, 26 Democrats joined Republicans to adopt it.
Most Republicans have said that expanded background checks wouldn't have prevented a 2018 mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, noting that the shooter cleared a background check.
The NRA argued that the bill "criminalizes the private transfer of firearms and targets law-abiding gun owners for persecution," including those who loan guns to family or friends.
But the measure includes exemptions to permit transfers that are loans or gifts between family members in addition to allowing temporary transfers for guns used for hunting or on shooting ranges.
Now that they serve in the majority, Democrats have been trying to flex their muscle on a number of campaign promises from the 2018 midterms, which include pledges to address gun control amid a series of mass shootings.
While the bill faces a big hurdle in the Senate, the legislation is symbolic for the Democratic Party, which a few years ago would shy away from taking up gun control. It's been more than two decades since a vote on a standalone gun-control measure in the House.
"No one's political survival here is more important than the survival of the American people, especially our children," Pelosi said prior to the vote.
And here are the EIGHT RINO REPUBLICANS....mark them down, vote them out!
From our friends over at Breitbart:
Eight Republican Reps. joined Democrats on Wednesday in the vote to criminalize private gun sales.
Five of those eight sponsors and/or co-sponsors of the bill, and the three remaining Republicans simply joined the vote to criminalize a neighbor who sells a gun to a lifelong neighbor without government permission.
The Hill listed the eight Republicans:
- Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
- Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
- Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL)
- Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.)
- Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ)
- Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL)
- Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL)
- Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX)
The gun control supported by eight Republicans would not have prevented a single mass shooting that occurred to-date in the 21st century. Moreover, although the legislation was pushed to honor Gabby Giffords for surviving eight years since being attacked, the gun control would not have prevented the attack on Giffords. This is because Giffords’ attacker acquired his gun via a background check.
But the gun control would criminalize a friend who sells a gun without government permission to someone he has known since childhood.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) opposed the Democrats’ gun control by explaining that it is insidious; that it will lead to more and controls, including a firearm registry. On January 13, 2019, Breitbart News reported that universal background checks are unenforceable without a gun registry.
