U.S. Senate Democrat Leader Pushes Gun Control In Response To ... Bombs

posted on September 21, 2016

Apparently following the Obama administration strategy of “never letting a crisis go to waste,” U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., on Monday capitalized on Saturday’s New York City-area terrorist bombings to call for more gun control. 

“We should close the loophole that allows potential FBI terror suspects to legally purchase weapons,” Reid tweeted on social media, following it up by claiming, on the Senate floor, that his scheme “would prevent the next attack.” 

But Reid’s claims are absurd. First of all, the bombings had nothing to do with firearms. Second, the suspect was not named on any “terror watch lists,” anyway. And third, the gun-ban scheme Reid is pushing would gut the Fifth Amendment due process protections at the foundation of American jurisprudence in order to rob the Second Amendment rights of countless innocent Americans—all while doing nothing to stop terrorists, who as we all know couldn’t care less about American laws.
