Biden & Obama start gun control talk hours after Texas shooting

Published in Blog on May 24, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

The sickening mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday by an 18-year-old male is already being used as a political weapon by power-hungry politicians that want to take away the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

Everyone can agree this heartbreaking tragedy was pure evil. The shooter first shot his grandmother at home before heading to a nearby school, where 19 children and two adults were shot and killed. The gunman also shot two officers that are expected to survive and was ultimately killed by police.

The issue we can’t all agree on, however, is using this perpetrators' individual actions as a way to push an agenda that takes away millions of Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Just hours after the incident, Biden spoke about the shooting, but more specifically, the Democrat party’s talking points on gun control. 

“As a nation, we have to ask when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby. When in God’s name are we going to do what we all know in our gut needs to be done,” asked Biden. “And don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage.”

However, the specifics of the shooting remain unknown, which means there’s no way Biden can know how this incident could have been prevented. 

“It’s long past time for action, any kind of action. And it’s another tragedy — a quieter but no less tragic one — for families to wait another day,” Obama said.

But there’s many other problems at the root of the issue that are not being talked about. No one wants to point out how much Big Pharma makes off Americans, who use the most antidepressants in the entire world. Mental instabilities in the U.S. have become quite evident, but why? Lockdowns and government mandates have also left our nation without social normalcy for years. 

There is a huge desire to change the nation’s gun laws by those in power because they know firearms are the main obstacle that stand in the way against more government power.

This is why a Convention of States is so urgent in these times. Solutions are needed to prevent shootings from happening, but we must address the root causes instead of infringing on the right to keep and bear arms.

What can we expect in the coming weeks? A major push for gun control by the White House and both chambers of Congress. There’s only so much time before Democrats know the House and Senate could flip back to Republicans, which means time is ticking to successfully pass gun control legislation. 

In history, nation’s that slowly restrict gun rights eventually ban them altogether and end up with an ever-growing federal government. It’s time we reign in on the government’s power so they can’t encroach on this right that keeps liberty and independence at the core of our nation.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
