The first of many new guns laws has made its way through the U.S. House, meaning it will now serve as a test run for even bigger and badder legislation that seeks to erase that pesky Second Amendment.
The new bill would drastically expand federal background checks around gun sales, which would do absolutely nothing to stop bad guys, but lay the groundwork for tracking citizens that like freedoms and hate tyranny.
Here's how one lawmaker, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) responded to the bill:
This was his full statement:
"I want to remind my colleagues of a simple fact that is far too often swept under the rug by the Left: Americans have a right to obtain firearms for lawful purposes. Let me be clear to everyone in this chamber, you will not take this right away from us. I know it's easy to be sucked into the D.C. bubble, but outside of here, in real America, when we say ‘Come and Take It,' we d*mn well mean it.
If you think this bastardization of the Constitution will be met with silence you know nothing of the America I know. You want my guns, I know it, we all know it. Well, Mr. Speaker, you can come and take them."
