Repealing the SAFE Act on its own will do nothing to address this mass violence, including incidents like the shooting that left Rep. Steve Scalise, the House’s third highest-ranking Republican, critically wounded by a gunman at a practice for a charity baseball game in June.
The U.S. must prioritize a set of sensible and permanent solutions to curb this violence, including requiring universal background checks for all firearm purchases, implementing longer waiting periods and banning sales of firearms to those on no-fly lists.
Federal lawmakers must also prioritize more funding for mental health issues.
|Ever the tone-deaf ninnies, they insist on promoting the same unconstitutional "safety measures" over and over again.
The commerce clause delegates the authority to regulate commercial sales. There is no constitutional authority to regulate private sales.
The longer federal waiting period survived only until instantaneous checks came online, at which point the waiting period became an unconstitutional burden because it was no longer the least-intrusive means.
No fly lists are not constructed pursuant to due process of law, hence they cannot be used to strip people of their fundamental rights.
It ain't rocket science: YOU. CAN'T. DO. THAT.
