Congress Will Vote on Gun Control

Democrats have been pushing hard for a vote on gun control legislation following the Islamic terror attack at an Orlando night club.

Speaker of the House [score]Paul Ryan[/score] announced that the Democrats will finally get their vote after the July 4 recess.

According to Roll Call: 

The House will vote on a counter-terrorism package that will include a provision to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns, Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., told Republicans on a conference call Thursday, according to a source on the call. The House, when it returns next week from its July 4 recess, will also vote on a mental health bill , sponsored by Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, Ryan told his House colleagues.

Republicans believe terrorism and mental illness have been leading causes of most mass shootings. Ryan’s decision comes a week after Democrats disrupted House activities in a nearly 26-hour sit-in demanding action on gun control. It’s unclear whether Ryan’s proposal would include the broad “no fly, no buy” proposal Democrats have supported or a more limited version endorsed by the National Rifle Association.

Speaker Ryan is bargaining away the Second Amendment. The is just more evidence that the Democrats can get as loud and childish as they want, and the Republicans will blink every time- even when they have a dual majority. Pathetic.
