Pelosi Challenged, Gets Brutal Dose of Reality that Gun Supporters Are Going to Love

Barely two months into their tenure as the majority in the House of Representatives, Democrats are already pushing their anti-Second Amendment agenda with a number of strict gun control bills that would impose limitations and restrictions on the fundamental right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

Chief among those gun control bills are HR 8, a universal background checks bill that would essentially outlaw private sales and transfers of firearms, and HR 1112, which would expand the length of time allowed for the background check system to make a determination on a potential purchaser to 10 business days.

Prior to the House voting on HR 8 — it was approved Wednesday — a number of pro-gun Republican lawmakers held a rally outside the Capitol in defense of the Second Amendment.

One of the speakers was Mark Keith Robinson, a gun owner from North Carolina, and he delivered a fiery speech in which he vowed to fight the Democrats — led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — who are incessantly trying to chip away at his cherished right of gun ownership.

Robinson began by recalling how in April 2018 he had addressed the City Council of his hometown of Greensboro about a similar piece of legislation that would expand background checks and infringe upon gun rights of law-abiding citizens.

“They were doing much the same as what some of the members of this Congress are trying to do now. They are trying to infringe on my constitutional right to own a firearm,” Robinson said. “And I’m here today to say the same thing that I said to that City Council — I do not intend to let it pass without me speaking up.

“I am absolutely tired, as most law-abiding gun owners are, of having our rights doled out to us and taken away from us in small parcels. It is high time that our rights are as protected as the criminals’ rights.”

Robinson asked, “Why is it that the criminals don’t have to go to the sheriff and ask for permission to defend themselves in court for the crimes they’ve committed, but I have to go to the sheriff or the FBI to ask for the right to defend myself from criminals?

“It’s absolutely egregious. Our Constitution gives us an absolute right to defend ourselves with firearms, and it should be uninfringed.”

Robinson said he was standing against HR 8 and HR 1112 “because (the Democrats) are doing exactly what gun owners in this country have been saying for years — taking our rights away from us one small parcel at a time, and it needs to stop.”

He turned and expressed his gratitude to the politicians who were standing behind him in the fight to protect the Second Amendment, and encouraged them to continue fighting, prior to issuing a stern warning to those who are attempting to infringe upon his rights.

“To the politicians who support these laws, from those who are the hardcore socialists who plan on trying to dismantle our Constitution to simply the lazy, ineffective politicians that are holding our rights as political hostage for expedience to advance their own careers, I say this,” Robinson said. “Gun owners in this country, law-abiding citizens in this country, we’re no longer going to be silent. We are no longer asleep. We are wide awake. We are wide aware.

“And we are going to do everything we can to make sure that if you’re trying to take our constitutional rights. We are going to get you out of these halls and replace you with people that will” protect those rights.

Following Robinson’s fiery and on-point speech in defense of gun rights, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise — who was the target of a politically motivated mass shooting — spoke of the prevalence of firearms that are used by good people to defend themselves and others, and noted how Democrats had blocked him from testifying at a House committee hearing on gun violence because he refused to tout the gun control agenda.

While expanded background checks might not sound like a big deal to some people, the importance of opposing such measures was pointed out by Robinson in that Democrats are constantly working to chip away at Americans’ gun rights and must be confronted and stopped at each turn.

Thank God there are people like Robinson who are willing to speak out against those who would attempt to undermine our fundamental right to keep and bear arms for our own defense, as that right is essentially the one thing that upholds and supports all of the other rights and freedoms and liberties that we hold dear.

      MR ROBINSON TOLD THE TRUTH.AND WHEN THE GUNS ARE TAKEN AWAY,LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO GERMANY.WE NEED OUR DEFENCE AGAINST ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.

        ESPECIALLY the DOMESTIC ENEMIES and those are the politicians and Un-American idiots who support the unconstitutional laws that have been, and are being, passed.

        Where are the cowards in the Black Robes who sit on the SCOTUS and refuse to rule that the Second Amendment means EXACTLY what it states, “….the RIGHT of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”.

        They can read the intent of the Writers of the Constitution as well as I can and no one needs a law degree to understand plain English and the Founder’s intent in putting the “RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS” into the Constitution. Our Founders put it there to protect American Citizens from an over-controlling government, much like we have today.

        Awaken, you fools who support “gun control” and be aware of how many citizens were murdered by their own governments in the last century. ONLY FOOLS will repeat the mistakes that history teaches us!

          CHALLENGE TO AMERICANS

          As you read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights:

          (1) Look at the enumerated powers of the federal government;
          (2) Look at the express limitations on federal power as set forth in the Second, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments;
          (3) Ask yourself, where does the federal government get any power at all to regulate firearms?
          (4) Ask yourself, why don’t the high school and college textbooks devote any time to the history, philosophical basis and practical meaning of the Second Amendment?

      The experts have always agreed that gun control is the single best
      way to take freedom away from the people. It worked in Nazi
      Germany, and gun control works today in Cuba, Libya and the
      Soviet Union. Today, a bunch of do-gooders, politicians and their
      friends in the media are trying to make gun control work in
      America. These people feel that if you aren’t allowed to own a gun,
      our nation will be a ‘better’ place. And they’re very close to making
      it happen.’ °

        If you can’t own a gun, you are no longer a citizen, you are now a subject. In 1963 I swore an oath to defend my Country from all enemies foreign and domestic, little did I expect it to be my own Government. I have never been relived of that oath.

    Bravo Mr. Robinson and all the Republicans for bringing this to the attention of some gun owners who would have not known otherwise. Nancy Pelosi and the Democraps trying to push these bills through fast and unknown by many American gun owners. Get these idiots out of office before we hav no rights left at all.

    If this bill does by some slim chance pass and we have to give up our guns, who is going to take the guns away from criminals and gang members? It will not be any demorats because they will be hiding so far inside a cave we will have to pipe air in to them!

      Better yet, who are the idiots who will willingly go door-to-door attempting to confiscate guns from otherwise law abiding citizens. After a few hundred of those idiots are shot, they may form the opinion that Americans ARE NOT willing to give their guns up without an all-out war.

      Of course, the politicians who enact that insidious law will be hiding, but sooner or later they will have to surface and face a rope and the gallows. Guillotines are too messy.

    Bless his heart for his intelligence and courage to speak up and tell it as it is! We live in a violent world where there are predators. Every living thing has some means to protect itself. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the Democrats spent more time and energy setting a good example and teaching good morals. Nicer people make a better society.

    Ronald, the dems wont have to hide from criminals. They will instead hire them to control the people who no longer have guns. That’s what they did in Venezuela.

      Any Patriot who willingly gives up their guns deserves to be shot.

      Every Citizen who has ever served in the Armed Forces or in Law Enforcement has sworn an oath to “protect and defend” the Constitution; not the government nor elected officials. The Second Amendment IS part of the Constitution and DESERVES to be protected, even unto death. History has shown us that giving up your guns means death to millions, so why not have the fortitude to honor the Oath?

      Try to take the guns and there WILL BE a Civil War to make the last Civil War look tame.

      He can veto it, but when he does, it goes right back to them and they can overrule it. Don’t think they won’t try.

    The communist a.k.a. Democrat party I have been incrementally attacking the second amendment for the last eight years, and it should be playing anything to see this is nothing but a Nazi/communist attack on the people to enslave them. I hope the American people have learned a lesson from Hisg and Stan tough if we have to rise up and put them down for Tierney of which this amendment was written

    Let’s not forget than Japan was going to attack the Homeland, but decided against it because we were armed. There’s more at stake than just self defense, being armed discourages our enemies from attacking us and prevents our government from enslaving us. The Founding Fathers knew this and tried to protect the people from all of it.

    This is what the democrats wants and we the people have to stand up and be strong and I agree with all of you. The fore father’s put the 2nd amendment in the constitution so we could protect ourselves and now we have these democrats wanting to disarm us like these countries, Australia they took all these peoples guns, the crooks and murders still have there guns. I know that I see a war in the making and trust me it’s going to be bad. I am not giving up on easy, no way. I think we the people need to clean up these United government, just stand with you Mr President because he’s on our side. The sad thing is he is only be able to stay in there 6 more years and just look at the situation, probably be democrat in office if us republicans don’t keep it a Republican house. The government is so dirty with all these democrats in there. I just wish we could do away with democrats completely, I really feel sorry for the people of the future, like 10 or 15 years, because the U.S. is going down the tube so to speak. We have to be together people so the war comes be ready, don’t have your head up your ass with blinders on.

    Nancy Pelosi is a piece of dog shit . I like how her home has a big wall all around it and I’m sure there’s Armed Guards inside the compound . I like how she has protection and security but the rest of us peasants shouldn’t be allowed to have the same . There goes that phrase again – Double Standards ! We will never surrender Or Comply with your Communist laws and rules . Look how fucked up California , New York , New Jersey , Illinois , and Maryland are from the liberal scum bags fantasies .

    Thank you for stepping up and addressing the issue for Gun Control and law abiding citizens and the rights to bear arms. It is about time we are getting representation for right to protect ourselves and our homes. Please let us know what we can do to not let the HR8 and HR112 be passed.

    What is wrong with the Democrats? Supposedly they are pro American, pro America, take an oath to protect and defend the country against all enemies foreign and domestic then as soon as they get elected they try to dismantle the 2A. Their oath is a lie, their defense of Americans is a lie. They appear to hate America and our Constitution and way of life.

    Wake up America. Democrats are not your friends if you value your freedom and our Constitution. They want to take it all away.

    We need more strong minded men and women like Mr Robinson to take on Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats. Too many of them have been parasites on the tax payers and have become obsessed with power; It’s time for Nancy, in office for 32-year and all the others in office over 12 years to step down. These people care nothing about the people’s living struggles and maintaining a forwarding lifestyle. They are self-absorbed and a constant worry with taking away one beneficial law or the other. They are employees of the people; they are not our dictators. It’s time to put them out of office.
