All Three Of The Senators On The Democratic Side
of the Aisle Here today voted against it and filibustered. It blocked it blocked real legislation targeting violent crime why because the objective instead is to target law-abiding citizens Last Friday the biden administration published proposed regulations to significantly expand the regulation of firearms in this country that proposed regulation and this hearing both focus on so-called ghost guns. It’s a name that is intended to scare people. It’s designed to make people think that certain firearms are more dangerous than others that certain firearms are beyond the reach of current law that’s nonsense it’s simply not the case the so-called ghost guns that we’re talking about are nothing but homemade firearms there’s nothing special about them. There’s nothing weird about them, but advocates of aggressive gun control rely on ignorance to scare people Homemade firearms aren’t any more dangerous than.
And For All Relevant Purposes, Homemade Firearms
are treated like any other firearm under the law. If a person commits a crime with a homemade gun, they will be prosecuted just the same as anyone else. If a felon makes a homemade gun, he’s a felon in possession of a firearm and will be prosecuted. If a person knowingly sells a homemade firearm to a criminal that person has committed a crime and will be prosecuted. Chairman Blumenthal observed that quote we have no reliable metric as to any connection between crime and homemade firearms that’s another way of saying there are zero data no evidence whatsoever that this is contributing to crime At all this is a made-up problem and yet here we are having a congressional hearing pretending that so-called ghost guns are a major issue.
They Arent And I Look Forward To The
next hearing of this. Civil war replica cannons and how dangerous those are as well if we want to have a hearing on gun violence. There are real topics to discuss gun violence and violent crime is a real problem This country. It’s not the made-up problem of ghost guns, but in 2020 gun violence soared to rates not seen in 20 years with over nineteen thousand people killed by homicides and unintentional death not including suicides time. Magazine reported that gun violence surged in the city of Chicago in 2020 with shooting incidents increasing by over 50 percent in homicides by 55 percent when compared to 2019.
The 2020 murder rates increased by 37. 3 percent and by 37. 5 percent in Philadelphia. Compared to 2019 rates these cities of course all have things in common they’re all run entirely by democrats.
They All Have Strict Gun Control Measures
that criminals don’t follow. citizens are disarmed, the criminals are not and the deaths follows accordingly and they’re also all epicenters of the Democrats radical push to defund the police. This committee has confirmed one senior official at the Department of Justice, who’s advocating defunding the police and this committee’s preparing to move forward on a second senior official at the Department of Justice who’s advocating defunding the police. If Democrats want to stop gun violence. Let’s have a hearing on how the move to defund the police is causing more homicides.
Lets Have A Hearing On How Gun
control proposals are making people more vulnerable to violent crime and how they failed the big city Democrat cities that actually would be a hearing focused on crime and stopping it and not instead a made-up topic of ghost guns. We already know that homemade guns are not a problem in terms of actually being. in violent crime when the Department of Justice surveyed criminals to ask how they obtain firearms using crimes not a single one appears to have said that he made his own weapon hear that again. The Department of Justice asked violent criminals where’d you get their guns. Zero said it was a so-called ghost gun.
43 Percent Of Criminals Got Their Firearms For
underground markets. Six percent stole them and 25 percent of them obtained them from an individual, so why are we talking about this made-up issue it’s simple democrats. Don’t want to address the consistent proven empirical failure of gun control laws. They don’t work and they make crime worse, but they also want to scapegoat law-abiding citizens. The hobbyists who make home homemade guns who are not committing crimes they want to scapegoat them, but the real issue is in something chairman Blumenthal made several references to.
These Guns As Untraceable And That Term
was meant to be ominous that’s what this is all about. The Democrats on this committee want to trace every firearm in America. They want a registry of every firearm in America. They want a government list of what guns they are there are who owns them how many they own them and inevitably When you see countries enact registries of firearms. The next step is confiscation and numerous Democrats on this committee have advocated for confiscating firearms at home heidi and i own firearms.
- ghost gun 43 percent criminals
- problem ghost guns 2020 gun
- homemade firearms special weird advocates
- scare people homemade firearms aren
- ghost guns major issue aren
There Is No Government List Of The
firearms we own and i’m very glad. There’s no government list of the firearms we own. We have an amendment in the bill of rights. The second amendment that protects the right to keep and bear arms. This hearing is not about some real threat that’s producing violent crime There is.
Zero Data To Back Up That
this made up phantom of ghost guns poses a real threat. Chairman Blumenthal wants to target violent crime. I would encourage him to join Senator Grassley and Me in the Grassley Cruz legislation that I introduced nine years ago targeting violent criminals going after them improving the background check system improving the database prosecuting felons and fugitives who lie trying to illegally buy a firearm and I would note that when Grassley Cruz was voted on on the Senate floor in 2013. In the Democratic Senate, it got 52 votes on the Senate floor. It got nine Democrats who voted in favor of it.
The Most Bipartisan Support Of Any Of The
comprehensive legislation and the reason Grassley Cruz didn’t pass is Senate Democrats including all three of the senators on the Democratic side of the aisle here today voted against it and filibustered. It blocked it blocked real legislation targeting violent crime why because the objective instead is to target law-abiding citizens that does nothing to stop crime, but it does a great deal to undermine our constitutional rights. I will note finally that as chairman Blumenthal observed there’s a rules committee markup on legislation s-1 legislation. Many of us are referring to as the corrupt politicians act.
Im Going To Spend The Rest Of The
day in that rules Committee markup introducing and pressing a number of amendments. So unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to be here as ranking member Senator Lee has very graciously agreed to to participate in the hearing in my stead. While I’m in the rules Committee hearing thank you.
