Thanks to the backing of 14 Republicans who chose to compromise their values in order to defend the Second Amendment to the Constitution, the ostensibly bipartisan gun safety bill received the necessary number of votes on Thursday to go to a final vote.
Right before Congress adjourns for a two-week recess, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer is now advocating for a final vote to be held on Friday.
After the mass shooting on May 24 at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, which left 19 children and two teachers dead, a bipartisan group of senators discussed the gun measure.
At around 12:20 pm on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act’s rolling vote count was 62-28.
Under the dreadful Democratic Party leadership, the House of Representatives has already passed a few gun control measures that, believe it or not, actually go farther than the provisions included in the Senate plan.
If the Senate adopts the proposal, the House must also approve it before it can be sent to President Joe Biden.
Laws are in place to make sure that society can run in a civilized way. Men and women’s hearts, however, cannot be altered by it. Additionally, it cannot fix broken brains or lessen the suffering that many children who conduct school shootings have had as a result of abuse.
That needs an entirely different form of assistance from members of society. Just a tool, the gun. By placing limitations on weapons, you are really denying law-abiding people their right to self-defense and allowing the illegal market to continue to spiral out of hand.
Bad folks can still purchase weapons. Good guys won’t take them any longer.
Although it is likely that this law will pass, we may still hold out hope and believe that a miracle will occur and members of Congress will become more understanding and refuse to allow this legislation to impose further limitations on gun ownership. There are already enough of those, and none of them have been successful in preventing these shootings.
