U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- An official with the gun prohibition lobbying group “March for Our Lives” has acknowledged his group expects action on gun control for having worked to elect an anti-gun Congressional majority and president.
Quoted by Politico, Max Markham, identified as the March for Our Lives policy director, reportedly stated;
“We didn’t work so hard in 2018 and in 2020 to elect a progressive Congress and White House to see nothing.”
As noted by Politico reporter Nicholas Wu, “Democrats control all of Washington, and their frustrated base wants to get something done by any means necessary, filibuster be damned.”
What would be the reaction from the establishment media if an official with a gun rights organization said the same thing in the event of a Republican election victory?
Remarks by two House Democrats during a press event in front of the Capitol as they called upon the Senate to end the filibuster while pushing for D.C. statehood essentially confirmed Markham’s observations.
Rep.Cori Bush (D-MO), according to Fox News, asserted Democrats were elected to Congress “with a mandate to transform this society” and that Republicans are blocking legislation including “common-sense gun control,” whatever that might be.
Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) insisted Americans don’t care about Senate rules, but what they do care about is “ending gun violence” and other policies, Fox News reported.
The Politico story centered on anti-gun Democrat Senator Chris Murphy, who has crusaded for restrictive gun control in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting more than eight years ago. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was also quoted for observing at a gun control rally at the National Mall that “We will have (gun control) legislation because of Murphy’s persistence.”
