Two sand surfers with AR-15s gunned down 14 Americans in California last week. As expected, the Democrats jumped loudly on their gun control nonsense. Immediately following the shooting, top donkey jockey Dianne Feinstein submitted an amendment to the Obamacare Repeal Bill (not that those two are fahkin' related, but whatevs!) that would allow the Attorney General to prohibit the sale or transfer of firearms to suspected or known terrorists. Republicans in the Senate rejected that amendment. Their reasons: due process.
I'm not sure I am on board with allowing due process to even "suspected" terrorists, but the language in the amendment (YES I READ IT - YOU CAN TOO RIGHT HERE) gives the AG complete discretion, including "reasonable belief" and "appropriately suspected" to deny the sale of firearms.
So, the party that pushes mass deportation and Muslim databases is suddenly worried about due process. You are killin' me guys! Try some gawdam consistency please! Stick with your deportation and databases and DON'T LET TERRORISTS BUY GUNS!
|And then there's THIS bitch!|
“Last night, the Senate voted down a law to block suspected terrorists from buying guns. We have thousands of people on a no-fly list. They get put on there based on credible information and suspicion that they should not be put on a plane inside our country or coming into our country,” Clinton said at a campaign event in Sioux Falls, Iowa. “I got to tell you -- if you’re too dangerous to fly in America, you are too dangerous to buy a gun in America.”That's funny, huh? The party that denounces profiling, that is opening our doors to thousands of Syrian refugees, that releases terrorists from Gitmo and that gives amnesty to undocumented immigrants with violent criminal records is now all of a sudden concerned about dangerous people in America. So when it comes to gun laws, it's okay to profile based on suspicion?
Hey Democrats, howzabout if you're too dangerous to fly in America and too dangerous to buy a gun in America, then we ship your fahkin' ass OUT of America?
As usual, NONE of this is about what's best for the country. Both parties care so much about winning their political pissing contests that they are contradicting their normal behavior.
