Establishment GOPers Dan Crenshaw and Lindsey Graham joined with Democrats in a push to disarm their own voter base in the wake of antifa-supporting leftist Connor Betts’ mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw


These disgusting mass shootings have been following a pattern ever since Columbine. Sick and lonely men have decided this is how they will vent their frustration.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw


The solutions aren’t obvious, even if we pretend they are. But we must try. Let’s start with the TAPS Act. Maybe also implement state “red flag” laws, or gun violence restraining orders. Stop them before they can hurt someone.

Senator Lindsey Graham similarly exploited the shooting to push for gun control:

El Paso shooting is sick and senseless.

Time to do more than pray. Time to enact common-sense legislation in Congress to empower states to deal with those who present a danger to themselves and others — while respecting robust due process.


Lindsey Graham


May not have mattered here, but Red Flag laws have proven to be effective in states that have them. (2/2)

From Buzzfeed, “Lindsey Graham Is Writing A Bill To Take Guns Away From People Deemed Dangerous”:

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham told BuzzFeed News he will start crafting legislation next week to expand police powers to preemptively seize firearms from people believed to be a danger to themselves or others.

Graham is angling to get bipartisan support for his bill, and has been in discussions with Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal. Neither would outline specifics Thursday beyond saying it will be an original piece of legislation. Graham said work on hammering out the contents of the bill will begin next week.

Why do Republican sell-outs always push for their own law-abiding supporters to be disarmed after some unhinged criminal commits a crime?

Congress should enact Red Flag laws/ Extreme Risk Protection Orders in EVERY state and increase resources dedicated to mental health support.

“Red-flag” laws mean panels of unelected leftist bureaucrats and cops deciding on who is allowed to own a gun.

We’ve already seen how that has worked out in Maryland.

Our government’s complete and total refusal to address any of our society’s actual problems (and insistence on only making them worse) is what’s “radicalizing” people.

The problem is our hostile, corrupt, decadent ruling class, not the small amount of free speech and gun rights we still have left.
