Texas Republican LT Gov Goes Rogue And Proposes Obama Attempted Gun Control

The Lt Gov. Dan Patrick said on Friday that he’s “willing to take an arrow” and defy the NRA and will press Texas to close a loophole in gun-purchaser background checks.

Patrick said that it’s “common sense” to tighten background-check laws. Patrick said that he wants to protect transfers among family members and to exempt friends. Patrick said, “That gap of stranger to stranger we have to close, in my view,” Patrick, a staunchly conservative Republican and avid gun-rights advocate, said in an interview with The Dallas Morning News.

“When I talk to gun owners, NRA members and voters, people don’t understand why we allow strangers to sell guns to total strangers when they have no idea if the person they’re selling the gun to could be a felon, could be someone who’s getting a gun to go commit a crime or could be a potential mass shooter or someone who has serious mental issues.”

“Look, I’m a solid NRA guy,” he said, “but not expanding the background check to eliminate the stranger to stranger sale makes no sense to me and … most folks.”

Soon after Patrick’s proposal, the NRA responded saying that these tactics were attempted and failed by the Obama Administration. Criminalizing private firearm transfers would require a massive, governmental gun registration scheme. The NRA response said:

“With due respect, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s “proposals” would resurrect the same broken, Bloomberg-funded failures that were attempted under the Obama administration. Like most political gambits, Lt. Gov. Patrick’s “solution” precedes his possession of the facts, including this critical concession by the Obama administration: Criminalizing private firearm transfers would require a massive, governmental gun registration scheme. Instead of trampling the freedom of law-abiding Americans, the government should focus upon actual solutions: fixing our broken mental health system, prosecuting known criminals and enforcing the existing gun laws that require follow-up whenever a prohibited person tries to buy a firearm. In the meantime, the NRA remains at the forefront of legitimate efforts to combat crime in our country. We encourage Lt. Gov. Patrick to join us in support of the same.”

According to Patrick who claims to be a Trump supporter, “one day, [Democrats] could have the White House again, and they could have Congress, and they will pass draconian laws that dramatically impact our 2nd Amendment rights,” he said. “And if Republicans do some common sense things, that helps us stave off that day.”

Mr. Patrick that is not the case the Democrats never stop. They push and push and push; they are never happy. We have to take a stand against gun control, and now is the time.

Does this Lt Gov really think criminals are going to follow the rules… Black Market guns will be available forever and no law on paper is going to stop it.. What would be a strong deterrent is to selling guns to persons other than through a gun shop, (Family and Friends are exempt) would be to make the transaction a Capital Offense. Quit pussy footing around and start putting the REAL Gun Running Black-Marketers on Death Row. after an execution or two watch and see how quick the sales slack off. Also, use the same action for anyone committing a felony using a gun. Reduce appeals to only One and get on with putting these POS Criminals in the ground…… The only thing a predatory criminal fears is serious injury or death so be the bad ass that he/she is scared of…..

Here’s a cut and paste for ya buckwheat…..I am the “Average White Deplorable” American! I am between 16 and 80 years old. I live in small towns and rural areas North,
South, East and West, from border to border and coast to coast. I may or may not be in a Militia Group. My neighbors and I know each other well and
are very well armed. We will stay low
key until the need arises to defend our Country, our way of life, our
communities, our families and whatever else is ours, to the death if
necessary. If threatened, we are ready
to rise up and crush anarchist and criminal activity with extreme
measures. There will be no Maranda
warnings, plea-bargains or prisoners, just swift and sure retribution. A motto during the American Revolution was
“Don’t Tread On Me”. No truer
words were ever spoken. For you punkass ANTIFA, BLM, muslim terrorists,
gangbangers, and other thugs of today who think you “Rule” and have no
respect for this country or it’s citizens, plus have no clue as to what America is all about, beware! The time is coming that what you sow will
come back to you and be “in your face” tenfold. Keep up your lawless ways and one day soon
you will have the misfortune to meet me, the true “Average White
American” face to face. You won’t
be dealing with the “Politically Correct” Government, but just the common
citizens who are the true rulers of the land.
Then, when the shooting is over, we will truly “Piss” on your unmarked
graves! If ya got this far, heed what ya read punk…

And what community does this guy primarily work in? Why Leftist Austin Texas. Why not just enforce, with teeth, the law on those who transfer ownership of guns without going through a licensed gun dealer per BATF Federal Gun laws already on the books? Oh right, they don’t want to because, since they are not enforced we can look good in political circles by passing more gun laws that won’t be enforced. This is because CRIMINALS DO NOT FOLLOW LAWS.

This is just another attempt by the Leftist Liberal’s to make it look like something is being done when that something is just an expensive nothing burger. Liberal see, liberal do. Even apes are more intelligent. All laws quickly become meaningless if not enforced with meaningful punishments. Don’t believe me? If all people always obey the law Highway Patrol wouldn’t need to patrol to catch speeders and people on DUIs.

From reading your other posts you seem to have some anger management issues. I suppose that is why your contemporaries want Red Flag laws to protect themselves from the likes of you who often wishes others to die for their comments. I don’t subscribe to Red Flag laws but may make an exception for people like you even though we have gun laws already on the books that should take care of you, providing they are enforced.
