Closing Thought–05Apr21

After a weekend of shootings then calls for better laws that could help calm the situation down have gotten louder.

Biden has issued the call to action…..

Democrats and outside groups are praising the $5 billion for community violence prevention programs tucked into the president’s massive infrastructure package, which was unveiled Wednesday and is likely to get the next big legislative push on Capitol Hill.

But they say more must be done.

House Democrats this week urged Biden to take executive action to subject concealed assault-style weapons to more federal regulation. And others raised pressure on Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to promptly schedule votes on two bills the lower chamber passed last month to expand background checks.

“The extraordinary investment proposed by the Biden-Harris administration would save countless lives in communities that are most affected by gun violence,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “To meaningfully reduce gun violence, we have to both close the loopholes in our gun laws and invest in proven solutions. Congress should move quickly on both tracks to deliver the results the public deserves.”

Personally I think we need more…..but this is a start that most likely fizzle in the Senate if it makes it that far.

Something needs doing…..but it is probably way too late for any actual reform.

Here is a closing thought within the closing thought…..part of the insurrection of 06 January were the militia known as the Oath Keepers….you know them they are the ones that carry AR-15s and body armor….if they are convicted of a felon they will no longer be able to own a firearm…..what will they do when they cannot wear the penis on their chest?

  1. ‘Community Violence Prevention’ at $5 billion? Just stop owning guns being legal, and that solves most of the problem overnight.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I am working on a piece about the whole states rights thing……it is archaic and needs to be put in a museum…..there should be only one set of laws…not 50 entities making them in contradiction. chuq
