Dems introduce “Disarm Hate Act” they would use to take guns away from ALL Trump supporters
By J. D. Heyes
It’s not an election year and many Americans right now are gearing up to enjoy the summer, so it’s safe to say that most people are not paying attention to what Congress is doing.
And that’s the way they like it, especially authoritarian Democrats who never take a day off in trying to find new and inventive ways to strip political opponents of their rights.
As such, a pair of Dems introduced a measure in the House and Senate last week designed for one purpose: Take guns away from as many supporters of POTUS Donald Trump as they possibly can, and disguise the takeaway as ‘enhancing public safety.’
As reported by Guns America Digest, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) introduced the “Disarm Hate Act,” which would permanently revoke the Second Amendment rights of any American convicted of a misdemeanor offense deemed to be a “hate crime.”
The website noted further:
Sponsors believe the bill closes the “Hate Crimes Loophole” by banning the sale and possession of firearms for anyone convicted of committing a crime on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
“Over and over again we have seen what happens when a convicted white supremacist, white nationalist, or neo-Nazi is able to purchase a gun,” Cicilline, vice-chairman of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, said in a statement.
“This bill closes the Hate Crimes Loophole and makes it much harder for someone to give voice to their hatred in a volley of gunfire. It’s just common sense. If you’ve been convicted of a hate crime, you don’t get to buy a gun. Full stop,” he added.
Although convicted felons are currently prohibited from purchasing or possessing a gun under Federal law, very few states bar individuals convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime from buying a gun. A misdemeanor hate crime, which can include menacing or assault, is often a precursor for more severe attacks.
