Ultra Liberals Attack Moderate Democrats for “Caving” on Gun Control
According to The Daily Caller, ultra liberal groups and commentators are attacking moderate Democrats for not supporting an all out assault weapons ban.
Gun control advocates are upset that Harry Reid refused to include a provision in the upcoming Democratic gun control bill to be brought up in the Senate in a few weeks.
The bill is likely to focus on “universal background checks” (aka de facto registration).
“Harry Reid’s decision to strip the assault weapon ban from the Senate bill on guns was both shameful and disappointing,” said the progressive women’s rights group UltraViolet. “When 40 percent of mass shooters start their rampages seeking our their wives, girlfriends, or exes, women cannot afford to wait one minute longer for bold action on gun safety reform. Our 400,00 members will not forget that today, Harry Reid was not on their side.”
Speaking on Piers Morgan’s show liberal film maker Michael Moore said, “If a man with an assault weapon goes into the school where Harry Reid’s grandchildren go to school tomorrow and kills his grandchildren, would he stand in front of that microphone at five o’clock and say…’ We can’t get it passed, we just don’t have the votes.’ Would he do that, really? I don’t think so.”
Morgan said on Twitter that he wants to “shame” Democratic lawmakers who refuse to support stricter gun control.
Dianne Feinstein, who is pushing for an all out ban on many semi auto guns, says she feels betrayed by Reid.
In my opinion the Democrats are more than welcome to keep fighting among themselves for as long as they wish.
