Our Stable Genius has said that he was serious about bucking the Gundamentalists and Ammosexuals in the New Confederacy and pushing Congress to create a new background-check system for gun purchases:
“Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform.”
Prznint Stupid proclaimed that he was going to listen to both Republicans and Democrats and get something done in the wake of the tragedies in Dayton and El Paso! And it sounded oddly like he meant it!
Then yesterday, Prznint Sundowner called Wayne LaPierre and told him that background checks are off the table. And let’s put some Quatloos on nothing happening on the red flags or mental health deals reportedly in the works.
The slaughter will continue as long as Wayne LaPierre has an Gmail account and a list. (LaPierre, as all good grifters do, has already burned through all the NRA’s cash to pay for his lavish and deadly lifestyle.)
The only way any gun control will ever become law if Dems can sweep the elections and abolish the filibuster in the Senate.
THROW THE BUMS OUT.
