Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski said at a Senate hearing Wednesday that she wanted to avoid getting “involved in constitutional arguments.” The only problem is that the hearing in question dealt with President Obama’s recent executive actions on guns, which many believe infringes on Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
“I look forward to…listening to the attorney general and listening to this wonderful panel that you’ve invited to participate today,” Mikulski, a Democrat and ardent supporter of gun control, said in her opening remarks ahead of a Senate Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Subcommittee hearing, which heard testimony from Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
“So let’s solve the problem,” Mikuski urged. “Let’s not get involved in constitutional arguments, and let’s help our American people be safe and secure in their home, their neighborhood, their school and their house of worship.”
Earlier this month, Obama announced that his administration will force more gun sellers — even low-volume sellers — to obtain licenses and to conduct background checks. The initiative, which was developed in part by Lynch, expands the category of gun sellers considered to be “in the business” of selling firearms.
Republicans and gun rights advocates criticized the executive action, alleging that it infringes on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
And as Republican senators at Wednesday’s hearing showed, they were unwilling to heed Mikuski’s request to avoid the constitutionality of Obama’s action.
Enough everyone of them needs to be booted out. You don’t want to adhere to he Constitution? Then get the hell out
Seems all left wingers consider the Constitution to be a roadblock rather than shield.
Progressive liberals annoyed again by the antique paper they swore to uphold and defend against all enemies foreign and presidential. Geeze we can get this to the SCOTUS they will shred that nasty obstacle to the Prezs’ favor like with AHCA. Everyone knows that the elderly, vets and anyone that has a rough time and gets counseling should have their rights stripped. I see the prez and his minions lined up like the rockets…https://youtu.be/5bLX06yR3wY
democrats all want “sieg heil”
Apparently, the left knows they cannot accomplish what they want if they use the “C” word.
This woman is basically elected by the riffraff of Baltimore who think burning down their neighborhood will garner support for their causes. The mayor and DA for Baltimore all think alike if they really think at all.
