LAWMAKERS STUNNED AT WHERE THEY FOUND DEMOCRAT BILL TO STRIP CITIZENS OF GUN RIGHTS
The maxim “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” is meant to instill in those who hear it that the answer to failure isn’t despondency, it’s hard work.
Apparently New Mexico Democrat lawmakers took that to heart as they took a gun control bill that already failed, re-branded it, and put it back out for consideration as if their peers were that stupid.
The initial bill, HB 50, mandated universal background checks on gun purchases throughout the state, Breitbart reported. When that bill failed, which, of course it did, Democrats simply refiled substantially the same legislation under a different number, HB 548, in hopes of getting that one through the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, according to Bearing Arms.
The newly numbered bill didn’t make it either.
“A New Mexico state bill to expand background checks to most private gun transactions has been voted down by a legislative panel, ending chances for approval this year,” The Associated Press reported.
“The House Judiciary Committee on Monday failed to endorse the Democrat-sponsored initiative designed to extend background checks to gun sales arranged over the internet or on the sidelines of guns shows that don’t involve a licensed dealer,” AP continued.
No, Democrats, your fellow lawmakers are not that dumb.
Neither are American people, for that matter. Besides Bearing Arms, Breitbart and the NRA-ILA ran stories warning responsible Americans that Democrats were being, well, Democrats.
They’ll just have to settle for looking for other ways to undercut our freedoms for now.
