Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) broke her tape measure the other day while measuring the drapes in the Speaker of the House’s office. Just kidding! She has an illegal alien employee for menial tasks like that.
You would have to be living under a rock, however, to not notice the power-mad gleam in her eyes. Pelosi really, really wants to be House Speaker again. She’s even drawn up her to-do list for that eventuality. It only has three things on it: Slaughter gun rights, cancel tax cuts, impeach Trump.
We’ll just focus on her anti-gun agenda here, though. Here’s what Pelosi plans to do to gun rights if she gets the Speaker’s gavel back in her greedy clutches in January:
Ban “Assault” Weapons
This has been the dream not only of Pelosi, but of the wider Democrat Party for many years. They’ve been especially desperate to reinstate it, ever since President Bush allowed Bill Clinton’s unconstitutional ban to expire in 2004. No facts or reason can dissuade Democrats from this desire. The AR-15 is the most popular deer hunting rifle in several states – but it’s still an “assault” weapon that people should not own.
Expand Gun Confiscations
“Gun Violence Restraining Orders” are a cute little code that liberals like to use for “Taking People’s Guns Away Even If They’ve Never Been Convicted of a Crime.” Several states have these ineffective, pointless laws in place. But Pelosi wants a federal law nationwide, so if you give a stern look to an incompetent DMV employee, the police could show up at your doorstep with a restraining order to disarm you.
Universal Background Checks
Pelosi is always pushing this draconian pipe dream as well. With “universal” background checks, you wouldn’t be allowed to sell a firearm to your nephew or your neighbor without first playing “Big-Brother-May-I” with the federal government. A firearm is simply a tool and selling one should be no different between private individuals than selling your lawn mower to someone.
But Pelosi knows that the feds are always getting caught not destroying background check records as they’re legally supposed to, so this is another way for the government to track who has firearms. You know, in case someone files a Gun Violence Restraining Order against you.
Killing National Concealed Carry Reciprocity
National concealed carry reciprocity has been a dream of patriotic Americans for years. The idea that you can go to prison and have your life turned upside down just because you crossed an invisible line on the ground – with an unloaded gun in the trunk of your car – is offensive to most sane adults. We have an actual chance of moving this bill through the House and Senate and having President Trump sign it into law, striking a major blow for gun rights. But if Pelosi gets her mitts on the Speaker’s gavel, the bill will be dead in the water.
Phony “Armor Piercing” Ammo Restrictions
Will this lie never die? “Armor piercing” is the term the military uses for high-speed projectiles that can puncture armored vehicles. Gun grabbers stole the term and claimed that it means rounds that can pierce police body armor. Bullets that can penetrate police body armor have been banned under federal law since the 1980s. That ban was always and only intended for machine pistol bullets, which was primarily what gang members were using. The term “armor piercing” was never intended under the law to include rifle ammo. Period. Pelosi’s use of this phony term is really code for banning RIFLE ammunition.
Pelosi Will Kill the Hearing Protection Act
Everyone who watches movies know that silencers turn handguns, shotguns and combat rifles into whisper-quiet murder machines that make a teeny-tiny fart sound when you pull the trigger. Anyone who has ever used a silencer knows that this is a total fabrication by Hollywood. Silencers simply reduce the noise of a gunshot – there’s nothing quiet about them.
The Hearing Protection Act in the House would remove silencers from the federal restrictions of the 1934 National Firearms Act. The bill is intended to loosen silencer laws to protect people’s hearing. Pelosi has already demanded that the bill be killed, and she will nuke it if she becomes Speaker.
If you want to keep Nancy Pelosi’s visions of gun-grabbing totalitarianism from coming to fruition, there’s one way to do it. Sacrifice 30 minutes of your day on November 6th to get out and vote.
