“More than 100 Americans die every day from gun violence,” Durbin tweeted. “This #GVSurvivorsWeek, we recognize survivors of gun violence & remember all those we have lost. We have a lot of work to do to make this country a safer place. I will do all I can to reduce deadly shootings & save lives.”
A few days earlier, Durbin tweeted that he had met with gun control proponents and assured them “reducing gun violence will be a top priority of the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
If Democrats were truly interested in reducing gun violence, they could start by targeting the gangs and criminals they coddle, not law-abiding gun owners, gun shops, and gun manufacturers, who will bear the brunt of the gun-grabbing Biden administration’s anti-Second Amendment position.
Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley responded to Durbin’s gun control vow by telling the Washington Free Beacon, “Unduly abridging or regulating those rights, especially if it’s through a strictly partisan process, is wrong. I hope, if Senator Durbin chooses to focus on this issue, it will be with a bipartisan, consensus-building approach.”
It won’t be.
