House Committee Might Return Early to Pursue Gun Control

When was the last time Congressmen rushed back to work to do anything?

Democratic aides said members of the Democratic-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee might return to Washington a week early to start pushing gun control legislation after the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

The committee would be moving on several bills that would be introduced to the full House when it reconvenes on September 9.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler wants to consider measures, including a “red flag” bill to provide an incentive to states to adopt laws to deny guns to people deemed a threat to themselves or others, the aides said.

A similar measure is being pursued by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, a Republican, and Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat on the panel.

President Trump has been back and forth on stronger gun control measures, at times calling for red flag provisions and better background checks, and at others distancing himself from such legislation.

A majority of Americans support universal background checks.

  1. No new law’s or background check’s enforce laws we have plus 2nd Amendment Right’s The Constitution Law of the Land. That’s why Trump was elected?

  2. Democrats say Guns are dangerous: I don’t know…..I sat in front of my gun all day and was never in any danger. I even tried to provoke it by calling it names and telling it I was going to send it to a gun buy back program….Still it did nothing. No danger at all….Interesting!

  3. the only way a firearm is dangerous is when they are in the hands of a democrat for the most part:
    In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

    In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States who later died from the wound.

    In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

    In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.

    In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

    In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

    In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

    In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

    In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen, TX.

    In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

    In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

    In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

    In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

    In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

    In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

    As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

    In 2019 a registered Democrat named Connor Betts, the 24-year-old shooter, shot and killed his 22 year old sister and nine people, wounding 27 others.

    Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
    Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.

  4. There are a few Democrats retaining their sanity. Hopefully they remember “the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”.
