House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) convened House members after the Memorial Day break to consider eight gun bills.

They are looking to advance bills as early as Thursday.

Sing a different tune

When the subject of mental health comes up, it is quickly brushed aside by Democrats, who tend to favor taking guns away from law-abiding Americans.

But during the summer of 2020, when it was fashionable for Democrats to “defund the police,” they were singing the praises of, wait for it, counselors and social workers. Wouldn’t they come under “mental health”?

A bill was introduced in July 2020 by Democrats, including several “Squad” members, called “The Counseling Not Criminalization Act”. The bill would “prohibit the use of federal funds to maintain police in schools.”

The bill would have provided a $2.5 billion grant to “hire the counselors, social workers, nurses, school psychologists and other staff they need to support students and create safe schools without police.” “.

Maybe the Squad and Ted Cruz can have a talk now.

DC Clownshow On Guns will continue

As the debate over gun laws continues, the political antics going on on both sides of the aisle will continue. President Joe Biden continues to make totally false statements regarding guns.

When addressing the media on the White House South Lawn on Monday, Biden spread dangerous misinformation, saying, “The Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute. You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed. »

Constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley, during a “TNZT News Live” appearance this weekend, remarked that “he (Biden) is undermining his own case by repeating what is ironically misinformation.”

The companion to Biden’s gun comment was that a 9mm handgun is a “high-caliber weapon” in which a bullet “blows the lung out of the body.”

In another political stunt, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is “open” to voting on bills that experts say will most likely fail the Senate, so Republicans will be seen voting against gun laws.

Democrats might not encounter as much opposition as they might think. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Thursday he sent GOP Sen. John Cornyn to “negotiate” with Democrats on gun control.

On Thursday afternoon, a group of five Democratic senators and three Republican senators, including Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) met in the basement of the Capitol to discuss extensive background checks. and “red flag” legislation.

It certainly didn’t take long.
