Honorable Members of Congress:
After the latest terrorist aggression in Orlando, gun control advocates wasted little time to cynically exploit tragedy in pursuing their pre-ordained agenda to restrict or eliminate Americans’ rights under the Second Amendment.
President Barack Obama immediately renewed his calls for banning semi-automatic firearms, which are functionally identical to many common hunting rifles, knowing full well that bans on such firearms – indeed, some of the world’s most stringent gun laws – recently failed to stop two mass killings in Paris (November 13, 2015, 137 dead, 368 injured and January 7, 2015, 19 dead, 22 injured) and Brussels (35 dead, over 300 injured). Given the terrorists procured guns illegally, they did the only logical thing by using not the semi-automatic firearms used in Orlando and San Bernardino, but rather fully automatic machine guns.
Meanwhile, Senator Chris Murphy first filibustered for and then caused to be introduced S. Amdt. 4750 to H.R. 2758 for “universal background checks,” knowing full well that Orlando killer Omar Mateen underwent two such background checks on June 4 and 5.
