Rand Paul Says Gun Control Bill Was Kept ‘Secret’ And Senators Not Allowed Time To Read It

“There doesn’t appear to be a willingness or time provided to read, understand, debate or amend this bill.”

As the Senate passed a gun control bill this week with fifteen Republicans siding with Democrats, Senator Rand Paul noted that no one had time to even read the legislation because it was “assembled in secret.”

“Unfortunately, this legislation was assembled as many are — in secret, absent well-placed leaks to journalists,” Paul tweeted, adding “There doesn’t appear to be a willingness or time provided to read, understand, debate or amend this bill.”

The Senator further vowed to try to introduce amendments to the bill to “correct the constitutional deficiencies.”

The Senate voted 64-34 Tuesday night to advance the bill. 

How can any elected official sincerely decide on legislation without reading it or debating it?

In a further interview Paul noted “They didn’t even give us the actual bill to vote on it. They gave us a blank piece of paper and said, ‘Vote on this and trust us as to what the legislation will be when it comes forward and trust that there’ll be an actual amendment process.'”

Paul further stated that he takes issue with the so called ‘red flag laws’, whereby law enforcement are sanctioned to remove firearms from a person who they believe may be a danger to themselves or others.

There are no federal level red flag laws in the current legislation moving into the House, but it does propose $750 million in kickback grants to states that implement their own.

“These are called ex-parte hearings where a judge hears an accusation. In some states, the accusation is actually from an anonymous source. So under no condition would I think that your second amendment rights should be taken away with an accusation by an anonymous person,” Paul urged.

The Senator added, “I could be persuaded to vote for some aspects of this bill, but you’d have to have an amendment process to try to cure the constitutional deficiencies.”

He continued, “I don’t think you can take guns away without letting someone have a lawyer and without letting someone actually be accused of a crime in court in public. You have to be notified of what you’re being accused of. You can’t just have your gun rights taken away without even having a lawyer present.”

    After failing to convince even 40 percent of her own constituents to vote for her, Liz Cheney suggested Wednesday that she might try running for President.

    Cheney made the comments on the TODAY show, stating “That’s a decision I’m going to make in the coming months… It is something I’m thinking about.”

    Cheney also declared “I will do whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.”

    As host Savannah Guthrie noted, Cheney will lead an organisation that will mount a “unified effort” to prevent Trump from running for President.

    “In coming weeks, Liz will be launching an organization to educate the American people about the ongoing threat to our Republic, and to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president,” Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler told Politico.

    Surely this will all just help Trump.

    In her speech earlier this week as it became clear she had lost in a landslide, Cheney actually compared herself to Abraham Lincoln:

    Experts Say FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid Will Help Trump

    Could be a “remember the Alamo” moment.

    Experts are increasingly of the belief that the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago will actually serve to help Donald Trump’s chances of becoming president again in the long run.

    Federal agents searched Trump’s Florida home last week, ostensibly to recover classified documents, although the incident is widely being seen as yet another underhanded effort to prevent Trump from running for office again.

    Describing the raid as an “assault on a political opponent,” Trump claimed yesterday that the FBI “stole” three of his passports as well as ransacking his wife Melania’s wardrobe.

    Experts are increasingly coming around to the view that the raid will in fact bolster Trump’s re-election chances.

    “Unless Donald Trump is convicted of one or more felonies before November 2024, he is now, on paper, a much stronger contender than he was before the Mar-a-Lago raid,” said former hedge fund manager and political commentator Charles Ortel.

    “Whether you like Donald Trump or loathe him… you must understand that running the Federal Bureau of Investigation like a Stasi or Gestapo is so far beyond acceptable that it is worse than laughable,” he added.

    Ortel thinks the Mar-a-Lago raid is a “remember the Alamo” moment and that it will “pull levers at the polls” for Trump at the next election.

    “After the looming anti-Democrat deluge, there will be an accounting against all who have trampled the Constitution. This project will continue through and after November 2024,” said Ortel.

    Political analyst Sam Hussein broadly agreed with Ortel’s view that the raid will backfire.

    “This keeps the focus on Trump. It adds yet another dimension to the myriad of ways liberals have obsessed over ‘getting him’ or seeming to at apparently any cost. But he feeds off the notoriety,” Hussein told Sputnik.

    As we highlighted yesterday, GOP Pennsylvania Representative Scott Perry warned that everyday Americans should now plan for “tyranny” to enter their homes in the form of federal agents if they refuse to play nice with the authorities.

    In addition to the Trump raid, Americans are angered by the Biden administration’s funding of tens of thousands of new IRS agents, who we now learn are being trained to use “deadly force” against citizens.
