In the wake of multiple mass shootings across the United States, the Democrat Party has been beating the drum of more gun control. At the same time, Democrats are dismissing common sense reforms that would prevent mass shootings, solely due to these reforms not entailing more gun restrictions.
Some of the gun control measures that are most commonly endorsed by Democrats include more red flag laws, age restrictions, and even gun buybacks.
Of course, when law-abiding folks are disarmed, this only serves to incentivize evil individuals who are intent on doing harm. In the disturbing manifesto of the Buffalo shooter, he admitted to targeting New York because of the state’s heavy gun control laws.
Nevertheless, as the debate over guns rages on in America, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise is warning that what Democrats want is ultimately unconstitutional.
A Message For Every Single American
While speaking with Fox News Sunday, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) laid out the facts about firearms and the Second Amendment.
The House Minority Whip explained that whenever a mass shooting transpires, Democrats immediately jump to calling for gun control, rather than truly looking into underlying causes of the incident.
Scalise also specifically addressed the inherently unconstitutional nature of red flag laws. He explained that under current laws of this nature, due process is eliminated.
This therefore creates a scenario where people can have their firearms seized by law enforcement without the appropriate legal proceedings.
The House Minority Whip also reminded that under the United States Constitution, due process is a right that every single American is entitled to.
Before Scalise’s interview with Fox News Sunday wrapped up, he even laid out solutions to prevent a repeat of what happened in Uvalde, Texas last month.
The GOP congressman called for encouraging kids to speak up when something doesn’t seem right. He also cited the importance of ensuring that schools have the necessary security measures in place.
Finally, Scalise noted how surging crime rates across America are causing more people to purchase firearms for their own safety.
The Dangerous Underbelly of Gun Control
As Democrats call for red flag laws and other gun control regulations, they’re also advocating for defunding the police.
At the same time, the left-wing remains supportive of policies like bail reform that give criminals easy access to the general public, even after being apprehended by law enforcement.
The end result of a disarmed population, defunded police force, and lax crime laws is a nightmare for law-abiding Americans.
