In a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday, radical Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) declared to Republicans that “you will not stop us” from passing major gun control legislation.
“Time after time, you have chosen your right to kill over our right to live,” he ranted, referring to Republicans. “You will not stop us from advancing the Protecting Our Kids Act today. You will not stop us from passing it in the House next week. And you will not stop us there. If the filibuster obstructs us, we will abolish it. If the Supreme Court objects, we will expand it. And we will not rest until we have taken weapons of war out of circulation out of our communities.”
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) said during his opening statement that Democrats merely want to score political points for their base: “The Democrats cobbled together a package of measures. This is not a real attempt, in my judgment, to find solutions. Everyone here knows the reality that Democrats are in control of the House. Anything that you and Speaker Pelosi want to pass, you can pass, and frankly you’ve already passed numerous bills related to firearms this Congress.
“But because those bills are radical attempts to legislate away Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens the Senate has not taken up the legislation. Just like it won’t take up this bill,” Jordan continued.
“What we are doing here is just designed to appeal to Democratic primary voters. The bill won’t make your school safer. It will hamper the rights of law-abiding citizens, and it will do nothing to stop mass shootings. We need to get serious about understanding why this keeps happening,” he correctly added.
