Illinois’ infamous back-bench US Senator Tammy Duckworth doesn’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to gun control. All she has is fear, emotions and virtue signaling to her radical base. That and preening for a promotion into the Biden Administration or a successors possible cabinet. She’s probably hoping people don’t remember how poorly she did with Veterans Affairs during the Obama administration. (Likely why Biden didn’t tap her to even a role as Dog Catcher in Chief.)
So she was out in recent days telling the world how it’s all the fault of those evil Republicans that we don’t have more laws attempting to recreate past tyrannies instead of embracing the ideals voiced by our Founding Fathers.
It’s clear that instead of helping people to understand the truth so we will all be better, smarter citizens, she prefers to manipulate people.
Let’s face it, gun control is racist, classist and sexist. But Tammy doesn’t care about the little people. She’s got her armed guards protecting her day in and day out. The rest of us? Not so much.
Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) told CBS News in an interview on Tuesday that she believed Republican lawmakers were continuing to put the well-being of the National Rifle Association (NRA) over Americans and their families.
Duckworth said, “We can right now today pass universal background checks. We could pass a ban on assault weapon ban. We could pass a ban on high-capacity magazines. Those last two things are the common denominators involved in mass shootings in this country.”
How about passing a law against murder, you halfwit.
She added, “We need to remind the voters which legislators are the ones that are kowtowing to the gun lobby and to the NRA, and who is actually working to protect them and their children in their schools. And, frankly, we need to take that message back to the American people, and the people need to vote.”
Oh, bless your heart Tammy. Rest assured, outside of the urban centers awash in gang violence, plenty of Americans have gotten the message. Millions have become gun owners since the riots of 2020. You can
quack talk all day long, Sweetheart, but Americans aren’t stupid. They’re voting with their wallets to buy guns. Americans know that when danger lurks, that rabbit’s foot won’t save no “bunny.”
