Speaking just before the House was scheduled to vote on gun control legislation H.R. 8, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed ludicrously Thursday that Democrat-sponsored universal background check legislation is “overwhelmingly” supported by the American people.
“There is nobody in Congress whose political survival is more important than the survival of our children,” Pelosi declared laughably. Her pro-crime, open-borders party doesn’t give a damn about the survival of our children. If they did, they would come down hard on the real causes of gun violence in this country: gangs and criminal organizations — not to mention combatting human trafficking, which former President Trump was successfully prosecuting until the new administration shut down Trump’s operation.
“We think this should be bipartisan to Congress, as it is in the country,” Pelosi stated. “Overwhelmingly, there is broad support for background checks legislation, so we hope with the big strong bipartisan vote we have today to send it over the Senate, the drumbeat across America, that the change will come.”
She added, “This legislation… will save lives.” No it won’t. The Democrat gun confiscation agenda will put countless more lives, including those of the children she claims to prioritize, at risk of gun violence because all it will accomplish will be to disarm law-abiding gun owners, leaving more unable to defend themselves from the criminal elements Democrats protect.
