Mitch McConnell: Red Flag Laws and Background Checks Will Be Front and Center

UPDATE: Banning assault weapons is also on the table.

I see no reason why either wouldn’t pass the Democratic House.

Blompf has expressed support for signing both and moving on background checks through executive order if necessary. If Mitch McConnell brings this up for a vote in the Senate and there are enough Republicans who support red flag laws, then I don’t see how this will be stopped.

Politico:

“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that strengthening background checks and red flag laws will “lead the discussion” on addressing gun violence in the wake of two mass shootings that left at least 31 people dead.

McConnell’s remarks on a Kentucky news radio show follow a conversation he had Thursday morning with President Donald Trump, who has called for revisiting stricter background checks for gun buyers as well as red flag laws, which allows authorities to limit a person’s access to guns if they pose an imminent threat to others. …”

Blompf could possibly demand a poison pill on immigration in exchange for his support which the Democrats would never agree to. I don’t see that happening though.

I think he will succeed in pushing this through Congress like the criminal justice reform bill for the Koch Brothers. The media are calling it his Nixon-to-China moment which means that they believe it will be politically harmful for him. Why else would he jump on this hand grenade?

  1. Whites should be demanding proof of mass gun confiscation of inner city blacks before any gun control bills get passed.

    If we militarized behind this a. the liberals couldn’t say anything because no one can deny the black homicide rates in these areas, by use of guns particularly and b. it would constipate Trump since his remaining base would finally turn on him.

    The ‘racism!’ charge would implode since it would only convince more whites to disaffect from any pols who try to deny that blacks are menacing each other and whites. Basically, it would force center-right (and who knows who else) whites to face the reality. None of them really wants to subject themselves to black ghettoes.

    • Confiscation of illegal firearms could be done. It would take Martial Law and the Military would have to be employed. It will never happen for the aforementioned reasons. Neither will mass confiscation of legal firearms. However, thanks to atomization, it will proceed slowly. Boil that frog…

  2. Red Flag laws : That’s going to result in more people buying their guns and ammo on the black market — in order to have guns without anyone knowing they have guns so no one can can drag them to a mental “health” professional and into a courtroom. No one can take your gun away if they don’t know you have a gun if it’s not registered. More people will buy their guns on the black market.

    The black market in weaponry : No politician ever mentions the huge underground black market in guns in the United States. One would think the ones who are so concerned about gun violence would try to put an end to the underground black market in guns, but no one even mentions the underground black market in weaponry. It’s where the criminals get their guns. Criminals don’t buy their guns at hunting stores/gun stores, they can’t pass the background checks so they buy their guns on the black market.

    We have a lot of politicians who want to put an end to gun violence yet not one politician in America on any level of government even acknowledges that there is an underground black market in weapons in the United States. We’re going to put an end to gun violence — We’re going to put an end to gun violence by totally ignoring the huge underground black market trade in guns, yeah sure, whatever.

    The USA has really turned into a clown world, so much so that the USA won’t be around to much longer. And considering how far down the USA has devolved into a clown world country it’s a good thing the USA is not going to last too much longer. Good riddance to it.

    I’m a Yankee, but I wish the Southerners well and I hope they get their own country they can call their own.

    • People should start now working on ways to avoid the unconstitutional violations of privacy coming down the road. Encrypting phones, emails, etc. Being careful about making sure phone batteries are taken out or muffling phone microphones when speaking about certain issues…

  3. Distant but ever encroaching echoes of UK’s Tranny Police State.

    While British Eurofighters harass Sukhois above Scandinavia.

    And British Navy Vessels steal Iranian Oil Shipments to Syria.

    GAY PRIDE!!

    WHITE GENOCIDE!!

    Close your mouth and enjoy the imported cuisine and libertine……..

    Or you’ll get ass-raped in prison.

  4. McConnell and his lackeys didn’t do anything on the wall for 2 1/2 years, but they sure have come alive fast to pass gun control.

  5. This is a gab post by Blair Cottrell about what to expect from red flag laws. Blair is a white dissident from Australia.

    FYI in Australia we have no right to firearms, need licenses, gun safes bolted to the floor and wall, ammo stored in seperate compartments, regular check-ups by state agencies etc and “red flag laws” have always been a thing here.

    A colleague of mine had his firearms confiscated by the state after attending a rally against immigration policy. He took the state to court and after several months won his case and was able to recover his firearms, only to have the state then cancel his firearms license on a separate technicality, related to his “unsuitable character”.

    Another colleague who was a regular attendee at political rallies has had his property raided by police at least three times in the past eighteen months, police claim to be “searching for illegal firearms”. They never find any and have no reason to believe they will, officers carrying out the raids have verbally apologised to him after each search, informing him that they’re just following orders.

    Another man I know was gun pointed inside his own home by police after getting involved in a brief fist-fight with Antifa, after trying to attend the Milo event in Melbourne’s North. His wife and children watched their father cuffed at gun point inside his own house, before being taken to the police station to be questioned, then charged with “affray” –But the charge was later dropped.

    This is what “red-flag laws” will get you in America. Regardless of the noble excuses the state and its pawns will make, this is how these laws are actually used in practice.

    • Most American gun owners aren’t going to fall for the ruse. I was disappointed you Australians didn’t see it coming.

  6. How could Mitch McConnell not be /ourguy/ though? He is married to a based Chinese woman and he triggers the racist libs who object to that!

  7. Mitch McConnell is a primary example of the scalawag politicians that plague Dixie and that need to be removed from office and replaced by Southern Nationalists and Populists.

  8. Trump is stupid enough as a New Yorker to think supporting gun control won’t kill him. Or that he’ll get the suburban bitch vote. Or like McConnell, he just doesn’t care, because his job is to do whatever the fuck the Jews tell him to do no matter what.

  9. The 2nd Amendment says: “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

    (We will not argue ‘commas’ as they are irrelevant to the intent.)

    It says “Shall not be infringed.”
    Not chip away it all they want… This is not a fluid ‘right’ granted by government. It admits that God gave us immutable rights to protect ourselves. The jews were Christ’s enemies!
    . Christ commanded his followers, “Sell your cloak and buy a sword.” Period!

    Try this:
    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through…all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    “For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
    — Marcus Tullius Cicero

    I wish you well.

  10. Every conservative state who believes in the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment to be protections from an overbearing, overreaching federal government should immediately call conventions to take up a vote for secession from this out of control federal monster that is becoming more and more under the control of Leftist radicals who will soon have complete power. Make no delay. We are talking about our survival. This is not a trivial matter.

  11. Red Flag Laws. Here’s what will happen:

    It’s a Sunday night and your family has all gone to bed. You let the dogs back in and lock the deadbolt like you do every night. All the lights are off now except a couple of night lights scattered throughout the house, leaving that dim glow throughout your home. It’s bedtime, work and school are going to come early in the morning. You crawl in bed, kiss your wife and drift off to sleep being thankful for the air conditioning that allows you to pull that heavy quilt up over your shoulder, despite the fact it’s still 85 degrees outside. A few hours pass. It is 2:00 am Monday morning and your wife taps your leg and says, “baby I heard something outside”. As you sit up in bed you hear the dog growling in the living room and you know something isn’t right. You grab that trusty ole 870 and head into the living room. Your wife grabs her 9mm and heads down the hall to the kids rooms just like you have rehearsed. “Good boy” you say as you enter the living room, trying to calm both the dog and your wife just as splinters fly across the room and the front door flys open. “Oh shit!” As you shoulder your weapon and send a load of 00 Buck across your living room and see the perpetrator fall in a heap. Before the “thank God” can even run across your brain, you see a second man coming in the door and you fire again. This time you hear the pop of your wife’s 9mm as she has joined in the fight. It has to be those damn meth heads from down in town! Just then you are consumed by a wall of bullets as you see multiple muzzle flashes from just outside the door and you realize something isn’t right. You turn to yell at your wife to “get down” just in time to see her take a load of buckshot to the face and her brain matter splatter the wall behind her. You feel the burning as 5.56 bullets Riddle your body. One clips your spine as you’re scrambling away and paralyzes your lower body. The last thing you see before you bleed out is a SWAT guy from your local PD holding your teenage daughter on the floor with a knee in her back as she screams and cry’s because she just watched her parents being murdered.

    Why did this happen? You’re no criminal. You’re a Conservative and an honest family man. Your wife is a school teacher and your daughters are on honor roll. Why did this happen?

    Well two days ago, you and your wife went down to welcome the new neighbors to the community. Your wife made them some of her “world famous” cookies and you invited them to church on Sunday. Later that afternoon, you got a friend request on Facebook from your new neighbor, which you gladly accepted. They seemed a little odd, but in the few minutes you talked they were pleasant enough. The next day while you and your family sat in church, your new neighbor scrolled through your Facebook profile. He saw that “Trump 2020” post and got infuriated. See, he’s a staunch liberal and he hates your kind. The next thing he sees are the hunting pictures you took last fall when your daughter bagged her first buck. Now he’s seething with fury because he is wholeheartedly against the “slaughter of innocent animals”. Next he sees your post from the last range day with your buddy and sees those scary black assault weapons on the table and that does it! He has to do something about the racist domestic terrorist living next door. He picks up the phone, calls the local Sheriffs Office and reports you as a threat under the new Red Flag law. The SO follows their SOP’s and conducts a no knock warrant because you have now been denied due process and you are considered guilty until proven innocent.

    Now you, your lovely wife and two deputies have been killed for nothing. Your daughter will have absolute hell for the rest of her life. She will never be that successful person you dreamed for her to be because of the mental tragedy caused from seeing her parents murdered. The local news paper will report that you were killed after firing on and killing two deputies and that “over a thousand rounds of ammo and 22 guns were confiscated from your residence”. Those two deputies were just following orders. They left behind families as well and had served their community for over a decade. They didn’t know you were a stand-up guy with a great family. They weren’t allowed time to investigate things under due process. They were told you had threatened your neighbor and were out in the street waving an AR15 around. This is the reality of Red Flag gun laws. Innocent people will lose their lives. Red Flag laws will be used for petty and vengeful reasons without merit. They must be Stopped !
