Senate Democrats Gear up to Push More Gun Control
Senate Democrats are gearing up for another push to restrict 2nd Amendment rights.
On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on S. 1290 and S. 2483. Both are wholly politicized tools intended to allow embattled Senators to argue that Republicans are waging a “war on women.”
S. 2483, introduced by anti-gun zealot Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), would allow a judge to take away your guns in an “ex parte” proceeding in which you got no right to notice and no opportunity to attend or be heard. [Take into consideration that a domestic partner can already take out a restraining order.]
But, although Blumenthal is a lawyer, the constitutional concept of “due process” is unimportant to him.
If you could afford the thousands of dollars to afford a lawyer, you could petition a court within a reasonable time to get your illegally seized guns back -- maybe possibly. But let us tell you a little secret: Judges are loathe to return guns under those circumstances -- ever.
So you lose your guns and the Constitution goes “boom.”
Both the Blumenthal bill and Klobuchar's S. 1290 would expand current law to allow your date to go after your Second Amendment rights. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) would also impose a lifetime gun ban if you were convicted of the “misdemeanor crime of stalking” -- and then allows the states to define “stalking” ANYWAY THEY WANT.
Look, if the stalking constitutes a serious threat, it should be a felony -- which, incidentally, would automatically strip the stalker of his gun rights under federal law. On the one hand, Democrats are saying that the “stalking” is NOT important enough to be a felony, but on the other hand, they are saying that it is important enough to impose a lifetime gun ban.
ACTION: Contact your Senators. Tell them that these sham hearings show how much Senate Democrats hate the Second Amendment. Urge them to pass concealed carry reciprocity as the means for making people safer.
