Rep Carolyn Maloney Introduces Five New Gun Control Bills


The fact that DemocRATS are in control of the House has led to the promotion of a gun control wish list. Rep Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) introduced five new gun control bills on Wednesday, saying that this was a “good opportunity” that would only require 10 Republican votes to pass.

We’re particularly positioned well to pass these bills that have been around a long time, and that the American people … overwhelmingly support. So we have a very good opportunity.

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) today joined with gun safety advocates to introduce a gun safety legislative package. This comes ahead of the three-year anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL and is part of Congresswoman Maloney’s pledge to honor all those lost to gun violence with action.

Congresswoman Maloney’s package includes five bills: The Gun Trafficking and Crime Prevention Act, The Gun Show Loophole Closing Act, The NICS Review Act, The Firearm Risk Protection Act, and The Handgun Trigger Safety Act.

“As the third anniversary of the Parkland shooting approaches this Sunday, we are called to honor all victims of gun violence with action,” said Congresswoman Maloney. “There is no honor in failing to take action on gun safety. There is no honor in buckling to the will of the NRA and refusing to act to save lives. Thoughts and prayers are not enough – in fact, they are meaningless when not backed up by doing the work to effect real change. And so today, I am introducing a comprehensive gun safety package of five bills that would deliver on our promise to honor with action.”

According to NICS, the month of January saw 4.317 million background checks initiated, likely due to Joe Biden’s plans to destroy the 2nd Amendment. Last year’s total was a record 39.7 million record checks.

Take note of some things about Rep Carolyn Maloney and her legislation: 1) They are backed by emotional arguments that literally have nothing to do with “gun safety.” 2) The NRA promotes actual “gun safety” with classes. 3) There is no gun show loophole- if you buy a gun at a gun show, the seller still has to do background checks. 4) One bill “encourages” creating the smart gun, which will never be used by criminals, so its effectiveness is zero.

Not one of the bills introduced by Rep Carolyn Maloney would have stopped the Parkland shooting. Why? Because Nikolas Cruz passed all the backgrounds. Because the Broward County Sheriff’s Office failed to follow up on incidents involving him. They all knew he had mental issues. Because the system in place with the Broward county school district didn’t punish violators, but pushed the liberal narrative of the kid-who-needs-a-break.
