For John, BLUF: The Democrats in Congress are serious about gun control, just not for everybody. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The American Thinker, by Daniel John Sobieski, 21 September 2019.
Here is the lede plus one:
If Democrats were serious about using red flag laws to keep guns out of the hands of people who might use them to senselessly murder others and therefore are danger to society, and not just as a gun-control tool to disarm law-abiding citizens, then why did they kill an attempt to use compiled lists of known gang members, which many police departments and law enforcement agencies possess? Why did they kill a measure to red flag gang members? And if Beto O’Rourke is going to come and take our guns, particularly our AR-15s, is he going to start on the south side of Chicago?Read the whole thing to see the excuses. But, gangs are killing a lot of people with guns, just not always four per event.
