“U.S. Senate Republicans accused five Democratic colleagues of threatening the Supreme Court with political retribution in an extraordinary clash over what is set to be the court’s first case on gun rights in a decade. In a letter to the court that used language normally reserved for the political arena, the 53 Republicans said the Democrats were threatening to add additional justices to the court if it doesn’t drop the gun-rights case as moot. “The implication is as plain as day: Dismiss this case, or we’ll pack the court,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his 52 Republican colleagues said in the letter Thursday …”
Good for them.
Most of the time the only response Republicans give to Democrat attacks is silence. Far too often they backtrack in a pathetic attempt to curry favor with a hostile media.
“… He said it was important to hear people’s frustrations and their suggestions on how to address gun violence on both a local and national level …”
Then why has he never held a meeting on pro-2A legislation?
In your Aug. 15 article, “U.S. Rep. Anthony Brindisi on impeachment, gun control, re-election plans,” the Congressman is quoted as saying, “I don’t think anyone wants to restrict a law-abiding gun owner’s right to have access to a firearm.”
If he really believes this then I would like him to prove it by adding his name as co-sponsor to H.R.38 the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2019.
After going through all the criminal records checks the state requires to obtain a pistol license proving license holders are “law-abiding gun owners” there is no legitimate reason their ability to carry firearms should be restricted based entirely upon artificial political boundaries.
I’m not expecting Brindisi to do this.
