The whole country has been swept into a media hysteria vortex where most people are hyper fixated on the coronavirus pandemic. In a world where toilet paper has become more sacred than gold, and hoarding of all sorts has become a norm, this hasn’t stopped the United States House of Representatives from writing a bill that will ban assault weapons.
Dem’s Unconstitutional Legislation
A reigning Georgia Democrat, Representative Hank Johnson, is on the House Judiciary Committee and introduced H.R. 5717 on January 30. This progressive bill would ban the purchasing and possession of assault weapons. Former presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren brought forth a Senate version of the bill S.3254.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has unveiled a sweeping gun control plan that includes:
• Banning assault weapons
• Limiting the number of guns someone can purchase
• Raising the federal minimum age for gun purchases to 21https://t.co/a3wPc64SkG

“The Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act will save lives and make our country safer – without infringing on any law-abiding individual’s right to own firearms,” Representative Johnson said during a news release. “This comprehensive bill is a compilation of the best ideas to create a workable set of laws that will strengthen life-saving background checks, protect communities with bolstered enforcement, improve mental health services, and fuel research to make guns safer.”
The Media’s Pandemic Fixation
The mainstream media’s constant fixation on the coronavirus has completely buried this news. Not that the media wouldn’t ignore important real news if there were not a world-wide pandemic going on, but still, it is reprehensible.
The bill has yet to pass the Democrat-controlled House, but it looks promising that it will. However, the bill would have to pass the Republican-controlled Senate, and the president would have to sign it for it to become law.
Gun sales have skyrocketed since the virus fears have spread. Many U.S. citizens have turned to their Second Amendment rights in concern for their safety but also that this constitutional right might one day soon be stripped away.
Just like toilet paper, the supply for firearms, weapons, and ammunition has not been able to keep up with demand.
“Buyers appear to be focused on home defense, with handguns topping their shopping lists, followed by shotguns and rifles,” Jeff Knox, the director of The Firearms Coalition, noted. “Some more knowledgeable gun buyers are focusing more on rifles – primarily AR-platform – with an attitude of ‘just in case.'”

Dems Want to Strip 2nd Amendment
Democrats wanting to take Second Amendment rights away from the American people is nothing new, and it is not the only sinister thing they have been doing during the pandemic.
Senate Democrats have taken to filibustering the $2.2 trillion CARES Act last month to try and undermine the president and harm the economy. During this national emergency, Speaker Pelosi stunted for taxpayer dollars to go towards illegal immigrant sanctuary cities, a federal ban on voter-ID cards, and several other ludicrous agendas.
“In the United States, as of this morning, there were 471 deaths reported due to coronavirus,” a disgusted Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said March 23. “As of right now, it’s 573. That means today, 102 Americans died while the Democrats were blocking consideration of this bill.”
The Democrats sure have been busy during the pandemic. But unfortunately, it has not been to help the American people. Instead, to try and pass horrendous legislation and undermine the Trump Administration.
