One of the big news headlines from the past week was a sit-in by some Democrats in the House chambers. Apparently, they were upset with the progress of gun control legislation and decided force their will onto members of the House. In the end, this little stunt did not work and the adult children of the Democratic Party just packed their bags and left. If there ever happened to be an example of why people should be upset with Washington, this is a classic case. Of all things a sit-in? So let me get this straight, if a lawmaker or lawmakers do not get their way, they can just pout and sit in place? I’m sorry you grown children, that is not how our system works. Sometimes you do not always get your way!
I often wonder about some members of the Democratic party. Some of them seem to be totally obsessed with passing tougher gun control measures. It is their number one priority in office. Forget about any other issue that seems to be more important. In their own little narrow-minded world, having stricter gun control laws will eliminate all terrorism in this country. Talk about being delusional and short-sighted!
I find it interesting that many of these so-called brave Democrats talk about the need for people in this country to be safe by introducing new gun control laws. Yet many complain when legislation is introduced to stop people from entering this country illegally; yes the drug dealers and terrorists. They complain that it is not the American way to close our borders to people who might potentially put people at risk. Somehow, they are being very hypocritical and inconsistent in their stances on public safety.
Events like the Orlando night club shooting is not the result of having loose gun control laws. It is the result of a breakdown of agencies such as the FBI to investigate individuals who are suspicious and potential lone-wolf terrorists. It is time that we worry more about eliminating this political correctness crap rather than taking away the rights of gun owners across this land. The real issue here for public safety is tracking those bad guys. I am sure those bad guys will follow tighter gun laws won’t they!
Those individuals who staged this sit-in need to wake up and start looking at this issue from a bigger angle. Those who want to waste time and tax payer money by bringing up the same old tired argument about gun control need to be removed from office. It is time to stop pouting and time to start working together with your friends across the aisle on real solutions. Has anyone in the Democratic party ever heard of the word compromise?
