Congressman Antonio Delgado met with members of Schoharie SCOPE:
It’s nice Delgado did that, however, his voting record shows open hostility to 2A. He has run Facebook ads saying he won’t take NRA money (as if they offered any), and he has sent out fundraising e-mails based upon his gun control stance. If he genuinely wants to discuss guns this needs to stop.
Both the AG’s office and local media have been silent on this, but a Virgina ABC television station has the story, “State attorney generals urge Congress to close ammunition sale loophole:”
“Attorney General Mark R. Herring and a group of 21 other attorneys general sent a letter on Monday to Congressional leaders urging their support of legislation that extends existing background check requirements on firearm sales to also include ammunition sales. Herring and the other attorney generals argued the background checks would decrease gun violence by stopping individuals who are prohibited from purchasing a gun from also obtaining ammunition … To purchase ammunition under the new law, individuals would either have to be licensed to own a firearm or undergo a background check … Joining Attorney General in sending the letter are the attorneys general of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.”
Here is Herring’s press release.
Bill in question is H.R.1705/S.1924.
Schumer chimes in on Beto’s proposal for gun confiscation:
“… Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday told reporters that he doesn’t “know of any other Democrat who agrees” with Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s proposal to confiscate assault-style weapons. “I don’t know of any other Democrat who agrees with Beto O’Rourke, but it’s no excuse not to go forward,” Schumer told reporters on a conference call Wednesday, according to the Times Union of Albany, N.Y. …”
Sure he does, Dianne Feinstein said the same thing back in ’95 on national television:
“One of the lines that many progressives and TV talking heads are reiterating is that no one really wants to take away Americans’ guns. Senator Dianne Feinstein apparently missed that directive. She admitted as far back as 1995 that she does, indeed, wish to take everyone’s guns away from them. In a 1995 broadcast of CBS’ 60 Minutes, Feinstein admitted she would love to have instituted an “outright ban” on all guns. Feinstein was the driving force to the failed (and now lapsed) 1994 “assault weapons” ban, and it was upon her success at getting the law passed that she made her admission. “If I could’ve gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them — Mr. and Mrs. America turn ’em all in — I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.” …”
Gun confiscation is out in the open and a mainstream proposition in the Democrat party.
This Saturday at 2:00pm Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney will hold a press conference immediately following his so-called “Gun Violence Prevention Town Hall” at the Middletown High School auditorium, 30 Gardner Ext Ave., Middletown.
I expect this will be a dog-and-pony show in support of H.R.8.
