Earlier today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Quiterville) blamed Democrats for lack of gun control. If it weren’t for the video, I would never have fathomed such a huge delusional statement — I mean this is a reach, even for him.
The President can rail all he wants.
Rail? Is he referring to when President Obama said,”All in all, this was a pretty shameful day for Washington,” after the Senate rejected the bipartisan proposal to expand background checks? You know, the law that would have maybe stopped some movie theaters, elementary schools or churches from being shot up?
Maybe it was the recent tongue lashing President Obama gave after another school massacre occurred:
And each time this happens I’m going to bring this up. Each time this happens I am going to say that we can actually do something about it, but we’re going to have to change our laws. And this is not something I can do by myself. I’ve got to have a Congress and I’ve got to have state legislatures and governors who are willing to work with me on this.
Is this the railing he’s talking about?
Boehner also goes on to insinuate that he is in favor of finding a solution to keep people with serious mental illnesses from purchasing guns:
Let’s talk about what can we do to make sure that people with serious mental illness don’t have access to weapons…Let’s quit fighting over this and let’s start thinking about what is doable and what would have an impact.
Well, as proud as I am that Boehner finally voiced an opinion on the matter of gun control, I am not sold. Why?
Well….there’s this: In 1999, Boehner was all for speedy background checks when he voted “yes” on decreasing the waiting period for a gun from three days to one day.
How would an instant background check be thorough enough to ensure guns don’t fall into the wrong hands? Unfortunately, we know the answer to this since there is no federal waiting period and only two states require one.
After the Sandy Hook Massacre, a bill was introduced to expand gun laws. National polls showed 92 percent of gun owners — and 86 percent of Republicans — were in favor of universal background checks. Even after that poll, Boehner still would not give his take on this bill, and simply said he will review it and leave it to the Senate to decide. As you all know, the Senate failed to protect us because the GOP blocked the bill.
Yeah…..even after 20 little kids were murdered. But Boehner cares….haha.
Maybe his obnoxious spray-tan prevented him from seeing who’s really to blame–his fellow Republicans.
