There’s a push on Capitol Hill to promote gun control measures that some Republican lawmakers think will help them in 2020. It won’t. In fact, passing any gun control measures will harm the GOP’s and the President’s chances of election victory.
Polls show gun control is popular to some extent. But this is less indicative of support for policies and more of a result of terrible messaging and improper education on how these gun control measures would actually work. Universal background checks would have stopped exactly ZERO mass shootings in recent years. Most Americans do not realize the implications of the Democrats’ universal background check implications and how it will make many law abiding citizens suddenly criminals while not doing a thing to stop mass shootings.
Senator Ted Cruz reminded his colleagues of the reality of gun control as it pertains to next year’s election.
As Senator Ted Cruz noted last week, “If Republicans abandon the Second Amendment and demoralize millions of Americans who care deeply about Second Amendment rights, that could go a long way to electing a President Elizabeth Warren.”
Republicans on Capitol Hill and in the White House MUST stand true to the Constitution and its 2nd Amendment. Even the slightest display of weakness will be disastrous for America as well as their 2020 election hopes. They need to stop listening to polls showing ignorant people supporting gun control and take to the streets and airwaves to educate people about why gun control doesn’t work.
There are ways to solve or mitigate the mass shooting problem without gun control. We need to focus on criminals and the mentally ill, not laws that will punish millions of law-abiding citizens.
