Vote outside their office. Grants of political candidates of special interest groups are killing people and destroying our democracy. It is corrupt and as deadly as cancer.

Arguments that these gun reform changes violate the rights of the Second Amendment are spread by fake and anti-security opportunists, the biggest culprit being the coldest, worst, most dangerous president in US history, Donald Trump. Fortunately, his cartoonish presence has begun to fade, but it is not soon enough to prevent further deaths of innocent people, especially children, due to the fake worship of guns. Trump has publicly acknowledged that he supports background checks and does not think the public needs to have weapons of mass destruction. However, his appetite for power prevented him from repeating these positions because the NRA and gunman supporters were not angry with him. . The only positive thing that can come out of the recent, horrific genocide in Buffalo, NY and Uvalade, Texas is that every senator owned by Trump, Cruz, Governor Abbott and the NRA will be removed from public office. The media, the free press, is limited to covering the dangerous narrative of Trump’s “big lies” and support for freely holding guns.

This statement is proof of how much Trump lies to retain power. He doesn’t care about any of the things he claims to care about Gun control, abortion, immigration, national security, etc., all mean nothing to Trump except how his position affects his political relevance and his access to power. In the past, Trump has been a Democrat, living the Clinton life, advocating for abortion, and hypocritically advocating for immigration legislation that would have given Melania and her parents citizenship. Rural Americans and white supremacists who think Trump cares about their needs or ideals are foolish and using him for political gain.

These senators refused to vote to pass two bills that would extend background checks, HR 8 and HR 1446. These bills have been passed in the House but not yet in the Senate. This is the Republican Party, a party controlled by gun lobbyists who refuse to support changes to existing gun laws, such as:

  • Universal background check
  • Prohibition of weapons of war
  • Raise the age for buying a gun from 18 to 21
  • Implement waiting period for gun purchase and possession

Chief Justice Warren Berger (appointed by Richard Nixon in 1969) made the following statement in the Second Amendment:

The interpretation of the Second Amendment song lobby is one of the biggest parts of the deception, I repeat the word deception on the American people by the special interest groups I have seen in my lifetime. The real purpose of the Second Amendment was to ensure that state forces – militias – were maintained for the defense of the state. The language of the Second Amendment refutes any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen an inalienable right to the weapon of his choice.

Republicans must look back in time to see how the fateful conservatives disrupted the Constitution. MAGA Republicans are unconstitutional, power-hungry interpreters, And anyone who believes their description is stupid or corrupt.

NRA President Wayne Lapierre, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Greg Abbott, and all those crazy gun-fetish women at the convention argued for more guns as a solution to mass shootings that seemed sociopathic or ignorant. In the shooting at Uvalade, there were 19 policemen armed with guns who were standing in the hall when the gunman used his AR-15 on the children. Another weak, defensive argument is blaming mental health issues. That is the shortcoming of that argument. Can they explain why other countries around the world have mentally ill people but not a mass epidemic? If the premise is that mental health is at an all-time high in this country, why not limit access to guns instead of increasing access? Governor Abbott has presented weak arguments for resisting the increased gun protection law. She cherry-picks examples of shooting where background checks won’t help, such as situations where kids steal their parents’ guns. Gun violence and mass shootings are a complex problem, and it is short-sighted to decide how to solve them with the attitude of having “one” solution instead of multiple approaches.

Mental health problems are a legitimate problem. However, Republicans are most concerned about the case while defending their position on the broader, more dangerous gun rights. Texas ranks 50th in the United States in terms of access to mental health services. Beto O’Rourke should easily defeat Greg Abbott as governor in 2022. Texas needs a person with spirit, heart and sense of principle to save the state from destruction.
