Ten RINOs Joining With Democrats in Pushing Red Flag Laws
After lengthy discussions over the weekend with several Republican (In Name Only) senators, he tweeted: "We have a deal," adding:
Today a bipartisan group of 20 Senators (10 D and 10 R) is announcing a breakthrough agreement on gun violence – the first in 30 years – that will save lives.
Murphy was no doubt referring to the dreadful infringement of Second Amendment rights that was passed in 1994, called the Clinton Gun Ban, which banned the manufacture, sale, or purchase of "semi-automatic" firearms. Ten years later, after discovering that the ban had absolutely no impact whatsoever on gun violence, the law was allowed to expire.
Murphy was also touting the "bipartisan" nature of the "breakthrough" agreement, suggesting that Democrats and Republicans had finally repaired their animosity over the issue of gun rights and had come together to infringe further on gun owners' rights.
However, four of the five Republicans who joined with the Democrats have no fear of electoral retribution from their voters: they are retiring from the Senate this year. Further, none of the other six are up for reelection. So they can safely display their animosity towards the Second Amendment with impunity.
Another RINO, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, joined the 10 in celebrating the victory: "I appreciate their hard work on this important issue. The principles they announced today show the value of dialogue and cooperation." He added:
"I continue to hope their discussions yield a bipartisan product that makes significant headway on key issues like mental health and school safety, respects the Second Amendment, earns broad support in the Senate, and makes a difference in our country."
