Schumer has egg on his face after he tried to exploit the horrific school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
Just hours after the shooting the Senate Majority Leader changed the voting schedule to include far-left gun control bills passed by the House hoping to get Republicans to cave.
The bill would have expanded criminal background checks, lengthen waiting periods for firearm purchasers, and gives the FBI additional time to investigate gun owners.
However, by the morning of May 25, Schumer had a math problem on two fronts. First Senator Joe Manchin said that he would not vote to dissolve the filibuster to pass any House gun control bills.
“The filibuster is the only thing that prevents us from total insanity. Total insanity,” he said.
Second, other Democrat congressmen besides Manchin didn’t like the House bills either and started to speak with Republican Senators to try and get a bill together.
Lastly, Schumer shut the votes down because it would have messed up the holiday weekend forcing Senators to have to work during the holiday (give me a break).
Once again: Schumer is the worst Majority Leader in modern history.
He moved to put votes on the schedule last night to get retweets.. then realized holding those votes would cut into his members Memorial Day plans so now has to cancel and look foolish. https://t.co/3kwg9u6kF0
Even if the Senate passes a bill radicals in the House are threatening to kill the bill demanding that Senate Democrats end the filibuster.
All the anger is empty if you continue to support the filibuster, the electoral college and all the corrupt antidemocratic elements of the system that ensure nothing is done to stop these massacres. https://t.co/jaHlTCg8Rg
Want to know a dirty little secret about the Democrats? As they propose gun control and rail against the gun lobby they were doing robocalls in support of a Democrat Congressman Enrique Roberto Cuellar who is being primaried by an AOC-supported candidate. Cuellar has an “A” rating from the NRA.
Democratic leadership did robocalls to help the only Democrat with an ‘A’ rating from the NRA on the same day 19 kids were gunned down right outside his district.
