Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal might be, other than socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, of course, one of the farthest-left Senators in America, an avowed radical that’s particularly far to the left on the issue of gun rights.
And so it’s no surprise that he, appearing Tuesday on “MSNBC Reports”, said that he intends on making the November midterms all about gun control, as if that’s a good idea.
Beginning his monologue about the necessity of tyranny, Blumenthal began by insisting that Democrats will actually be able to push their radical agenda through the legislature this time, saying:
“This time, it really does feel different because of those shouts, ‘Do something.’ I’ve heard them for the last three days, four days that I’ve been in Connecticut, as I watched Memorial Day ceremonies in parades.
“There is something about how America has reacted and how shaken my colleagues have been. We’ve never before had five Democrats and five Republicans, as we do right, now talking seriously about substantive and meaningful efforts and proposals that will make America safer and save lives.”
Yes, because what Americans really want after seeing their nation burned down during the 2020, George Floyd-inspired “Summer of Love” is to be disarmed so that next time they can’t defend themselves or their property from hordes of rioters. Sounds very popular.
In any case, Blumenthal continued his demands for gun control, demanding that the government pass red flag laws that would give it the ability to take guns from people it deems to be dangerous. Speaking on that, he said:
“The main proposals, from my standpoint, involve red flag laws. I’ve written a law with Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a Republican, and I have a statute that we have proposed, which would separate people from guns if they say they’re going to kill themselves, or somebody else if they’re dangerous. An extension of background checks would also be very meaningful.”
Yes, because the government that toyed with calling parents protesting wokeness in schools “domestic terrorists” should certainly be determining who’s a reliable enough citizen to maintain gun ownership. That certainly wouldn’t be used to crack down on dissidents!
Ending his call for tyranny, Blumenthal finally got to the part about how he wants to make November’s elections all about gun control, saying:
“I am very clear-eyed about the history here. I am far from optimistic in any pollyannaish way. Let me be blunt. It’s put up or shut up time for Republicans because they have a job. It is United States Senator, and if you failed to do your job, and vote uncommon sense solutions, then they ought to be out of a job. Ultimately, gun violence protection is going to be on the ballot this November.”
A few leftists might want radical gun control of the sort Blumenthal likes. Average Americans, however, want to remain armed like their ancestors, particularly given the immense damage caused by leftist mobs and the crime wave that has roiled the country. If Blumenthal makes things all about gun control, the red wave just got ten feet taller.
