In the current political arena in America, Republicans tend to run on a platform that includes protecting the Second Amendment rights of Americans. For many Americans, that (sometimes implied) pledge to protect Second Amendment rights is one of, if not the, most important policy positions causing them to vote Republican instead of giving the voting finger to both major parties.
But it looks like quite a few Republicans in Congress don’t care about their promises to you and voted to strip you of your Second Amendment rights. You read that right. Fifty-seven sitting Republican members of Congress voted to strip Americans of gun rights. Aidan Johnston gives us the list of the 39 Republican members of the House who betrayed gun owners:
Amodei (R-NV), Bice (R-OK), Brady (R-TX), Calvert (R-CA), Carl (R-AL), Carter (R-TX), Cole (R-OK), Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Fleischmann (R-TN), Garcia (R-CA), Gimenez (R-FL), Gonzales, Tony (R-TX), Gonzalez (R-OH), Granger (R-TX), Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Hinson (R-IA), Joyce (R-OH), Katko (R-NY), Kim (R-CA), Kinzinger (R-IL), Malliotakis (R-NY), McCaul (R-TX), Meijer (R-MI), Miller-Meeks (R-IA), Newhouse (R-WA), Reed (R-NY), Reschenthaler (R-PA), Rogers (R-KY), Rutherford (R-FL), Salazar (R-FL), Sessions (R-TX), Simpson (R-ID), Steel (R-CA), Turner (R-OH), Upton (R-MI), Valadao (R-CA), Womack (R-AR), and Young (R-AK).
Johnston also gives us a list of the 18 sitting Republican Senators who voted to strip you of your gun rights:
These are people who took the faith and trust of American voters who trusted them to uphold the Constitution and to protect our Constitutional rights from people like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer. They took our trust, and they betrayed it.
These people don’t deserve to get reelected. In fact, these people should all be impeached for violation of their oath of office. You should do everything that you legally, morally, and ethically can to make sure that these people never get elected to public office again.
