Rep. Ritchie Torres fails to grasp that the public does not support gun control.
The race for Manhattan District Attorney is going to be a huge free-for-all in the June Democrat primary. There isn’t going to be a good 2A pick, but stuff like this can help in weeding out the worst of the lot:
Do not sit out the primary. Make the best pick possible at election time.
This isn’t leadership either. It’s just lame. The antis are failing around, desperate to pass anything, to maintain an illusion of relevance.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“President Joe Biden said he plans to take aggressive action to implement new gun-control measures through both executive orders and by proposing legislation on Thursday. When asked whether he plans to unilaterally enact new restrictions on homemade firearms, provide funding for state and local gun-control efforts, or propose legislation making gun manufacturers liable for criminal misuse of their products, Biden said he does. “All the above,” he said. “It’s a matter of timing.” …”
That’s not leadership.
A real leader defines his agenda with plans to move forward and implement it.
President Houseplant clearly doesn’t have much faith either in the agenda and/or his ability to get it done (which is a good thing.)
The House passed H.R.8 – Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021 227-203 with 8 Republicans voting Yes and 1 Democrat voting No.
One of those Yes votes was from Long Island Rep. Andrew Garbarino (R-2).
