Well... Well... Well...

Wow.... there's a segment of the Dem House caucus that reaaaalllyy hates the idea of a universal background check being.... universal in that it would apply to citizens, non citizens, and non citizens here illegally.
That's um.... an interesting take.

Though much of their ire could be because there /were/ enough members of said caucus to vote with the other party to add that provision to HR8.

Though I suppose it is consistent given how /infrequent/ people who fail a background check due to felonious convictions are actually /prosecuted/ for the crime of lying on said check.

A Senator gets cornered by "Think of the Children!" tactics.

A bit of irony,   Feinstein's the one hit with the "think of the children!" unthinking sloganeering and demands to go with legislation she thinks would be ineffective.

It's presented so her attempts to explain things aren't as simple are shouted down by people thinking she's uncaring.

And as a bonus it's all edited down to make her look uncaring and out of touch.
(I mean...  yes but...)

Nearly a Hundred Co-sponsors to the House Assault Weapons Ban?

Okay then.
Pelosi who is trying to make a UBC bill seem all Appleball and Basepie is probably having a "You said the loud part quiet and the quiet part loud" at this.
