Senator Pat Toomey Sides With NRA on Ill-Advised Gun Control Proposals

PA Senator Pat Toomey

 

After an Islamic terrorist slaughtered 49 people in a Florida nightclub, Barack Hussein Obama and his usual gang of left-wing liberal politicians reacted in the usual way: they again called for tighter restrictions on weapons.

But this time, Republican Senator Pat Toomey from Pennsylvania stood firmly with the National Rifle Association to defeat the latest Democrat attempts at gun control, according to a report on www.witf.org. Ohio Senator Rob Portman and Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson also did the right thing and opposed the dingbat Democrats.

Toomey, Portman and Johnson supported a NRA-preferred measure to deny a gun sale to a known or suspected terrorist, but only if prosecutors could convince a judge within three days that the would-be buyer was involved in terrorism. Currently, people have almost no ability to challenge their inclusion on the terror watch list.

Yet even as president Obama guts the Constitution with lists like this, he wants to flood our shores with unscreened “refugees” from Muslim countries in a bid to impose Sharia law in America.

The three Republicans also helped to defeat a Democratic-sponsored bill to close the gun show “loophole” and expand background checks, according to the www.witf.org bulletin.
