If you can’t dazzle people with brilliance, then baffle them with bull… merde. Pennsylvania Democrat Senator Bob Casey has done exactly this with his re-introduction of the “Disarm Hate Act.” His bill, should it pass, would strip gun rights from those committed of a misdemeanor hate crime. In other words, refuse to bake a cake, lose your gun rights.
Tiara Parker of Philadelphia joined the microphone-chasing Pennsylvania Senator to promote his latest brainstorm. Shamefully, Casey used this woman simply because the Philly resident had visited the Pulse nightclub on the fateful night a radical Islamic terrorist attacked the venue. As if being shot in a terror attack somehow makes someone an expert in public policy. Tragically, Tiara’s cousin died at the hands of the Muslim terrorist that night.
Today she’s promoting Casey’s “Disarm Hate Act” proposal alongside the Keystone State’s senior senator. Strangely, neither blames the Muslim terrorism for the deaths and damaged lives. Instead, they blame the firearm he used and “an individual (with) hate”.
Casey claims hate crimes are way up in America, citing dubious data from the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC loves to spread innuendo and has become so bad that the FBI now refuses to recognize them as a legitimate resource on hate crimes. If the FBI doesn’t trust SPLC, why would a sitting Senator?
Let’s face it: Americans don’t support gun control. Support for gun gun bans is at or near all-time lows. If Americans loved gun control as much as harpy hoplophobes suggest, then Hillary would have won last November. And her Democrat party wouldn’t hold the fewest seats at the state and federal level since 1920. But radical Democrat politicians won’t let eight years’ worth of election drubbings deter them from promoting more failed gun control laws.
The bottom line: Casey’s bill will go nowhere in Congress. However, some strongly anti-gun state legislatures may take up a version of the bill. Watch out for something similar in your home state.
