These are GOPers leading the “bi-partisan compromise” on “common sense” gun control
Here they are, the leaders of the “compromise” movement. Which, when it involves Chuck Schumer, is not a compromise movement at all. It is a choreographed surrender.
*** Senator John McCain (R-AZ): 602-952-2410;
*** Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK): 405-231-4941;
*** Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA): 804-747-4073;
*** Congressman Scott Rigell (R-VA): 757-687-8290;
Time to call them / write them / Tweet them / post on their Facebook pages letting them know that any compromise that takes away the right to possess STANDARD, common-use magazines (30 being the standard for the AR-15 platform, and that platform being the most popular rifle platform) or that backs a universal background check that ties increased mental health accounting by the government to a national gun registry through the 4473 form, which is the only means by which a universal background check can be enforced, will be treated as the sacrificing of our unalienable second amendment rights on the altar of “bi-partisanship,” and meet with driven opposition.
Not only that, but inasmuch as such a sacrificing of our natural right gives the Democrat gun-grabbers the cover to adopt the preconditions to build a registry, and sets the stage for confiscation somewhere down the road (once they are able to stack the courts, say), it is an abrogation of our legislators’ oaths to uphold the Constitution — and a signal that they are more than willing to sell out their base for some favorable notice by the liberal media and the opportunity to “prove” that they, too, “care about the children” and “care about gun violence.”
As I noted on NRA radio some time back, “gun violence” that results in a dead attacker and a saved family or family member is good good violence. So it makes no sense to take on gun violence; it makes sense to take on criminality and protect first responders, we, the people.
By allowing the left to control the language, we’ve allowed them to set the terms of the debate, and cowardly compromising appeasers like John McCain or Eric Cantor or Scott Rigell — political animals of the worst sort — will always choose cheap grace and a show of bipartisanship over principle if they believe it politically expedient. Which is why they watch polls, and why the progressive media is constantly weighing them and then churning them out.
We must rid themselves of such legislative cancers. Give them a piece of your minds.
