Democrat Lawmaker Says If Democrats Win 2 More Seats, They’re Ditching The Filibuster

( Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) declared on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the filibuster for passing gun laws will be eliminated if the Democrats gain two more Senate seats in the November elections.

Jones claimed polling shows the American people favor, generally speaking, gun control measures like banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, raising the legal buying age for semi-automatic rifles to 21, and instituting widespread background checks.  He then alleged that one dominant political party in this country, notably the Republican Party, prevents Congress from saving lives.

The Mondaire Jones interview showed he lacked a basic understanding of how gun laws work and what the Second Amendment entails. And sadly, his use of grammar was atrocious for someone in political office.

The video showed Jones wants Congress to go much further in order to eliminate gun violence in the country. Jones suggested the Senate must be rid of the filibuster in order to pass more gun legislation.  He believes they can get rid of the filibuster by picking up just a handful more Democratic seats. He claimed Democrats could offer constituents more gun control legislation if they cast their vote for them in November.  Jones then shamed fellow Democrat Senators Sinema and Manchin because they were unwilling to end the filibuster. He concluded by saying that Democrats must be transparent about strategy.

Trust us; those paying attention already know how ‘transparent’ you are.

The Democrats are openly telling you they want to take your firearms and seize complete control of the Government.

If Democrats truly cared about criminals who use guns, they would have encouraged the enforcement of laws already on the books instead of trying to weaken them.

According to reports, Rep. Jones, who previously backed defunding the police, has since changed course. Jones is now engaged in a difficult electoral fight in the forthcoming primary in the Empire State after being forced to transfer congressional districts to compete for Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s (D-NY) seat.
