Schumer: Trump Really Should Work On Gun Control Despite Dems’ Impeachment Push

The quote of the day is presented by Guns.com

Chuck Schumer doesn’t think a little thing like impeachment should stand in the way of President Trump working with Democrats to hand them one of their most coveted legislative achievements.

“Amidst the impeachment inquiry the gears of government can still move,” Schumer said. “Anyone who suggests otherwise is advancing a false narrative.”

“In fact, the best example of governing for this president … would be to pass the universal background bill, which has been sitting on the door step of the Senate for well over 200 days.”

The New York Democrat chided Trump for meeting last week with NRA chief Wayne LaPierre, during which LaPierre reportedly told Trump to “stop the games” on gun legislation.

“How dare he and why would Trump take that from Wayne LaPierre,” Schumer said. “President Trump must do whatever it takes to resist the clouded comfort he craves from the likes of Wayne LaPierre and the NRA.”

    I’m not sure if Schumer is naturally retarded or if he was dropped on his head repeatedly as a child.

    The DemoKKKommie legislative agenda is over in this Congress. You can’t un-ring the impeachment bell. Right now Trump has zero reasons to compromise with them on anything.

      The stereotypes of corruption here in NY if anything are understated and the arrogance that comes with power is worse when there is no accountability. What is truly terrifying when normal Americans get to know our state is Shumer is one of our cleaner politicians for the Democrat Machine. Think of it this way, he is able to serve at the federal level without getting arrested. Many of our local reps would have issues there.

Most of this has been already proven by the democrats star witness and trumps biggest mistake Giovanni, infect they got another witness to the call that didn’t admit they were present to the call, the head of the state department that said he didn’t now much or something like that, but turned out was involved in the call and Giovanni ratted him out on national TV Sunday.

        What part of the “shall not be infringed” .. as contained in the 2nd. Amendment, can’t any a dummycrat not yet understand ?. It’s just to rich to digest of what keeps on coming from (chuck-da-shmuck-schumer) this other lying old turd, or, from any of them parasites and Congress-clowns who’ve intentionally betrayed their “sworn oath of duty”, and simply cannot wait to dictate on US .. the common US American people. As a matter of fact, ALL those in the nest of them filthy, cowardly rabid rats inside the democrats’ party, their supporters, the rinos, and those never-trumper-scumbag-cowards who hide in the “Deep State” .. these should realize, by now, that our POTUS Mr. Trump will not be taken down as easily as they thought. This, despite of their manufacturing the most absurd, evil and malicious of accusations. Truth said, when it all comes down as to who’s really a traitor, and who’s really betrayed their sworn oath of duty .. all evidence points to the democrats, them deceivers and loud-mouths liars and deceivers who for near 3 years now have – only – been engaged in a coup, trying to remove POTUS Trump from office, with nothing but lies, lies, and more lies. The irony here is, that, the US American public has become aware that, all along, it’s been but them “righteous” dems, the hypocrites and cheats who are totally guilty of the very crimes that they’ve been trying to pin on POTUS Trump. And, all of what the dems want, is the power to control the citizenry, destroy our Constitution and fundamentally transform our Nation. Be it by hook or crook.

        3. avatar Miner49er says:

          Just reported by The Hill:

          “Just 4 percent of African Americans surveyed said that Trump’s actions have been good for African Americans in general, while 81 percent said he’s made things worse. Sixty-nine percent of Hispanic respondents said Trump’s actions have been bad for Hispanics generally, while only 19 percent think they’ve been good.

          Both African Americans and Latinos also overwhelmingly said Trump’s actions have been bad for each other, as well as Muslims and women.

          Among white Americans respondents, roughly a third said Trump’s actions have been good for black Americans, women and Hispanics, while about a quarter said they have been good for Muslims.”

        Seriously, I have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that there are anti-gun Jewish people. It’s not that I expect any particular ethnicity to be homogeneous in their values.

          They don’t want non Jews to have guns, and they want to control the media and the state, so they control what guns there are, but don’t have to get their hands dirty. It’s a strategy to make sure no one can ever final solution them again while simultaneously avoiding the thing (guns) that disgusts them.

    6. avatar The Crimson Pirate says:

      Sometimes I think the dems are actually trying to make sure Trump gets reelected.

      If they had STFU after the election and let him do what he wanted we all might not vote for him again. But with their continuous insane attacks, blocking him at every turn, and trying to convince people that all sorts of normal presidential actions he has taken are somehow criminal, how can we not support him. If for no other reason than the other side is insane.

      Hey Chuckie girl, we need democrat control before gun control. It is the democrats that are killing everybody.

      Schumer wants our pro Second Amendment President to work on anti Second Amendment legislation with the party that has done everything in its power to destroy him since his election.
      President Trump would probably still work with the Democrats if they would propose legislation that would actually help Americans-like the USMCA, or infrastructure or perhaps securing our Southern border, but they’re too busy trying to impeach him to bother with those things.

    Agreed, it is now less likely that Trump will do anything about gun laws. Not impossible, but yes it is less likely.

    Just don’t get too comfy. The instant Trump sees a personal advantage in changing a previously strongly held position, he will flip and flop like a crack addled monkey. There is no moral or ethical code in the man, it is all about himself and screw everyone else.

    There is also the possibility that impeachment will distract the House from new gun control efforts and it will never reach Trump anyway. It has long been a failing that neither the House nor the Senate is very good at handling more than one big thing at a time.

      Well, it’s a bit more subtle than that, but yeah. So, declaring themselves implacable foes, going after his legal and govt cover, after declaring they want to jail — or worse — his kids, is our D-party friends working to really get gun control.

      It’s like they’d rather have the issue than progress, as long as they have the right peole to blame.

          * Albany is a company-town, where the business is imprerial administration. No peeling them away with a different industry, although we could make theirs less profitable.

          * Buffalo is on the patronage train harder than most of the rest of UpState. BUT, what happens when there’s less patronage to give?

          As HQ and financial business chooses eleswhere, there’s less DownState surplus to dish out to the rest of us. Most interesting, while they’re going extra crazy now that the assembly’s flipped, UpState’s getting a dose of how bad it really is.

    At this point Trump has no reason to work with the Democrats in either the Senate or the House. It appears that Rep. Adam Schiff (D, California) has fabricated his charges for Impeachment against Trump and now Nancy Pelosi (D, California) has reportedly changed rules in the House to exclude Republicans from the House Impeachment process.* This is a sort of open warfare by the Democrats against Trump and will consume hours of Congressional time and millions of American Taxpayer dollars to accomplish nothing. Senator Chuck Schumer (D, New York) knows this full well.
    For his part, President Trump needs to heed Wayne La Pierre’s warning [and no one is more surprised than I that LaPierre may have spoken so strongly to POTUS Trump last week] and stop alienating American Gun Owners, keep his oft repeated Campaign Pledge to “protect our Second Amendment” and stonewall the Democrats on everything else they want. The Impeachment move against Trump is one of the “false narratives” Schumer alludes to.
    We, POTG, already know UBC’s will not stop future mass-killings and passing that bill in Congress is another “false narrative”. Both Impeachment and UBC’s are manufactured by the Democrats and neither will succeed.

      Well,Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about a blowjob in December 1998 and yet he was still able to work with the Republicans in Congress and have a budget surplus in both ‘99 iand 2000. Of course, George W. Bush managed to wipe out the budget surplus and put the US in a recession by the end of his terms, but that’s another story.

      The fact is, Clinton had no problem working with the Republicans to achieve a vibrant economy in the last two years of his term after impeachment.

      But you may be right, childlike, immature Trump may have a problem running a government in a professional manner.

      1. avatar Anymouse says:

        Wow, you really have no connection with reality.
        1) The “surplus” only existed if you ignored the deficits in social security and Medicaid/Medicare.
        2) The Republican-led House under Gingrich was responsible for limiting spending in the budget, not Clinton.
        3) Clinton was lucky enough to benefit from the dotcom boom. Something he didn’t create. The bubble peaked in Marrch 2000. Bush was in office when if cratered. He inherited a declining market of global extent, and there was nothing he could do to prevent it. People realized companies weren’t worth billions for never showing a profit and no projection to show a profit, just because they had .com in their names.

        1. avatar Miner49er says:

          “The “surplus” only existed if you ignored the deficits in social security and Medicaid/Medicare.”

          Total BS, pesky fax prove you wrong.

          Yes, the.com boom was good for the economy, but that wasn’t the only factor.

          “The Clinton years showed the effects of a large tax increase that Clinton pushed through in his first year, and that Republicans incorrectly claim is the “largest tax increase in history.” It fell almost exclusively on upper-income taxpayers. Clinton’s fiscal 1994 budget also contained some spending restraints. An equally if not more powerful influence was the booming economy and huge gains in the stock markets, the so-called dot-com bubble, which brought in hundreds of millions in unanticipated tax revenue from taxes on capital gains and rising salaries.
          Clinton’s large budget surpluses also owe much to the Social Security tax on payrolls. Social Security taxes now bring in more than the cost of current benefits, and the “Social Security surplus” makes the total deficit or surplus figures look better than they would if Social Security wasn’t counted. But even if we remove Social Security from the equation, there was a surplus of $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999 and $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000. So any way you count it, the federal budget was balanced and the deficit was erased, if only for a while.”

        2. avatar That One Guy says:

          Miner, a federal surplus (where revenue exceeded spending) would result in a decrease of the national debt. Feel free to find any fiscal year in which the national debt was decreased.

          Per my facts, the last surplus was with President Calvin Coolidge. I’m sure we all remember him like it was yesterday.

          The worst offenders are FDR with social security, LBJ with Medicare and welfare, and Obama with ACA. These socialist programs are In large part what is going to lead to the eventual collapse of the dollar.

        Clinton didn’t, have a choice. Those budgets passed with veto-proof majorities thanks to the person actually responsible for the balanced budget. Hint: it wasn’t Clinton.

          B. Clinton’s success was had by embracing the worst element of Republican fiscal incompetence. Deregulating the banking industry. Not that Bush gets off free on this one, the housing crash of 2007-2008, that brought down $4Trillion worth of the global economy, was predicted and ignored during both Clinton’s and Bush’s terms.

How dare he take on the communist in China and stop their stealing from the U.S. economy. How dare he…

          Enuf, if Trump keeps appointing judges who actually rule on the text of the law and keeps working on that wall, it’s enough.

        Well-deserved and long overdo? In what way? And self-inflicted? All he did was ask a favor from the Ukrainian president. Considering the United States has some form of leverage over pretty much every liberal democracy in the world, one could claim that his asking favor from any such foreign leader is then some kind of shakedown. It is silliness.

      It’s not like the Democrats and their base will support, praise, or vote for any Republicans turncoats who pass gun control. Hopefully the Republicrats keep that in mind. Taking photos with the demanding moms and Dems won’t get them their support, and they will lose ours as well.

  13. avatar enuf says:

    Trump will not be removed from office. Possibly he will be impeached in the House, but conviction in the Senate is all but impossible. A second term continues to be the likely outcome.

    Of course he deserves to be removed, he has been pissing on this country since the moment he announced his candidacy. But there is no possibility of all the Republican Senators who despise Trump forcing him out. We have not had that sort of principled and patriotic mindset in the Senate since Republicans told Nixon to resign or by impeached and convicted.

    These days it is no longer about love of country, not for either party. Both parties exist today for their own vanity and glory, their own yearning for power. Hard core Party Members, not unlike the Party Members of the former Soviet Union, are now citizens of their Party not their country.

    Does not matter what side you are on, when your support of a President is blind and delusional, you may as well be taking a knee and declaring your fealty to a King, or to a dictator. Liberal or conservative becomes entirely besides the point, blind allegiance is equal to capitulation, surrendering American’ism for Party’ism.

    1. avatar Baldwin says:

  16. avatar Rubiconcrossed says:

    Studies show that if Trump and the Republicans would have passed a Universal Background Check and a Federal Red Flag law it would have gained them votes in the next election, not lost them votes, especially with independent voters who most often are the ones that determine who wins an election. Failing to do anything only gives the Democrats a big election advantage in 2020 by pulling in the independent voters who are overwhelmingly in favor of such laws because neither law would have banned any guns.

    Please note I am not supporting either law but merely reporting the reality of the current political climate in the country.

    1. avatar pwrserge says:

      Yeah… anybody who supports those laws needs to have their voter registration rescinded. In any case, there shouldn’t even be an election in 2020 if Demokkkommies are allowed to put a candidate on the ballot. At this point, they are an open communist insurgency, not a legitimate political party.

    2. avatar Kyle in Upstate NY says:

      I don’t buy that at all. Passing either of those likely would lose him the next election, which is what the Dems want. Kill two birds with one stone. Get Trump to pass legislation that they want that also severely hurts his reelection chances.

    3. avatar Ing says:

      Studies show that 90% of studies are meaningless.

      Even if Trump could have secured a second term by catering to mushbrained “moderates,” it would’ve been a net loss for him and the entire Republican party.

      Everybody wants to attract the moderates/independents, but any party that tries to mold them into its base will fail. These voters are fickle. They won’t stick with you, and I know this because I’m one of them (not moderate, but independent).

      The only thing that leads me to caucus with Republicans is their support (minimal as it is) for the Second Amendment. I can forgive them for a lot of things as long as they support that fundamental right.

      If they throw my civil rights under the bus, I’m gone. I’ll gleefully burn the whole thing down. And I’m certain there are a LOT more out there like me.

      Except that reality would show us that he would actually lost them votes, especially among his base, if he passed any ineffective and unenforceable “universal” background checks and federal red flag laws, and he would lose the next election. Failing to do so only gives him a big advantage in 2020, as the KKKleptoKKKrats are already driving away Independent voters with their increasingly hard shift to the left and literally years of demonstrable lies. Lies just not about the President and his base, but his appointees and even the 2016 election in general, that are still coming out through repeated retractions in the lamestream “news” media. Don’t get me started on their bigoted identitarian politics, either.

      You’re not reporting anything even remotely related to reality. Only what the lamestream “news” media has deemed acceptable for you to believe, which is why you should automatically believe the opposite.

          But I can tell you, living in West Virginia has given me a unique window onto the true cost of unrestrained capitalism. Watching the multinational coal companies ravage the countryside and kill my family, friends, and neighbors, all for the love of the dollar is very sad.

          And with Trump in the other billionaires at the helm, we’ll continue to see working men and women forced to work in dangerous conditions for substandard wages, all to preserve the profits of the wealthy.

          You were actually just grouped with the poorly-educated. As in, indoctrinated far beyond your intelligence. I also rightly and sincerely doubt you ever actually “taught” anybody anything, either.

          Oh, and before you speak as if you even have any grasp of basic economics whatsoever at all, West Virginia is not in any shade of the word any kind of representation of “unrestrained” anything, either. Nobody’s killing your friends, family, neighbors, or countryside except the EPA when it “accidentally” spills millions of gallons of arsenic-tainted waste into major water ways. Or when KKKleptoKKKrat-run city governments fail to refrain from using lead pipes to deliver water.

          And ahd it been Shillary and her uber-rich Wall Street handlers at the helm, we would have seen working men and women out of the job and on the public dole, all to destroy the energy industry before any alternatives have even a fleeting hope of actually replacing coal or other fossil fuels. Even though nuclear’s ultimately going to be the way to go, regardless — but you know-nothings always shut down real solutions like that immediately.

        “In the media’s efforts to tie President Donald Trump with its latest conspiracy theory, CNN skipped an entire section of the released and unredacted transcript of a phone call to charge Trump with requesting a favor he never asked for.”

        ‘I would like you to do us a favor, though, because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… the server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you and your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you said yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.’

        https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Unclassified09.2019.pdf

        “The transcript that CNN read on air, however, connects the word “favor” in this section with Trump 540 words later asking the Ukrainian leader to look into former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s questionable business dealings with a Ukrainian energy company. Hunter sat on the board of the company for $50,000 a month while, as Joe Biden bragged in 2018 on camera, his dad put pressure on the Ukrainian government to end a corruption probe into the company.”

      Many folks on this forum are constantly talking of the coming Civil War, speaking gleefully of how they are prepared to kill LE owes and American troops to support their twisted idea of Amerika.

      Here’s what a true patriot (and former Fox News contributor), who served his country with honor, has to say about trumps’ call for civil war:

      “On Sunday, Trump tweeted a quote from evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress. “If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal,” the tweet read, attributed to Jeffress.
      Speaking with host Anderson Cooper on CNN on Monday, LtCol Peters said the president is inciting violence and undermining the Constitution.
      Cooper asked Peters what his reaction to the tweet was, to which the retired officer replied, “One word: sedition.”
      “Trump is inciting violence against the legitimate government of the United States and the constitutional order,” he continued. “And, Anderson, that is a grave crime. You can argue about the meaning of treason, what constitutes it, what doesn’t—sedition is very clear cut.”
      “Also I have to say there’s not going to be a civil war,” Peters added. “Knock that off. I’ve been hearing people on the extreme right saying it for years.” The retired officer also noted “the irony of a draft-dodger talking up war.”

        And many folks on this forum like you, who voted for one Patrick Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, speak gleefully of how they’re prepared to watch LEOs kill Americans — not the other way around — and how American troops would join in the “fun” in your twisted idea of AmeriKKKa.

        Here’s what an actual patriot who served his country with honor, has to say about Trump’s comment on civil war — and he wasn’t actually calling for it, either explicitly or implicitly:

        What’s missing here is the actual incitement to violence or the undermining of the Constitution. If one were to actually look up the definition of the word sedition, then look up what it really means in the Constitution, and how it’s actually defined in law, there’d be none to be found. Only those wanting to make hyperbole out of one lone man’s wild prediction would jump to such conclusions.

And if they don’t pass it again, another government shutdown looms until January when they all come back! They just work so hard! Nice Christmas present to the government employees. I really hope these idiots get what is coming to them! Funny how the media only picks what it wants to report on, not big stuff, but little stupid stuff like this!

    Hey Upchuckie Scummer,

    You can take your anti second amendment “gun control” schemes and shove them very deeply up your collective backsides. Also, in order to take just one more “assault weapon” off the streets, take one of those and shove it up there too. Then, to verify it is a working model, be sure it is loaded and then pull the trigger multiple times.

    President Trump, do not agree to ANYTHING these lowlife scumbags propose. We are not, and don’t ever want to be, one of their subservient subject lemmings.
