Ted Cruz has been working diligently, in spite of his loss in the primaries a year ago and the harsh ride he had following the nomination procedure. He has demonstrated that he can be above it all and concentrate on the job needing to be done, which has dependably been, in his eyes, the American individuals. His devotion to the nation and his capacity to turn out splendid contentions is praiseworthy, paying little heed to the past debilitation he had with the procedure.
One of the head bits of legislation that Cruz has been forcefully seeking after is gun legislation, especially that which is intended to contain and control the savagery that has tormented this country throughout a previous couple of years. The legislation was focused on by both Cruz and his long-term relationships in the Senate, Charles Grassley of Iowa and was the centerpiece of a battle that was occurring in the course of the most recent couple of months.
For reasons unknown, the shooting that occurred in the Texas church this previous week was one of the sorts of circumstances that this specific legislation was focusing on and now Ted Cruz has expressed that it would have particularly attempted to prevent the shooter from getting a weapon. What happened to the legislation? Cruz says that the Democrats have been slowing down that legislation and has said the blood from that massacre is staring them in the face!
On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News @ Night,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized Democrats for filibustering the Grassley-Cruz legislation in 2013 that “would have resulted in this shooter being in federal prison instead of murdering those innocents in that Texas church.”
Cruz said, “[T]his should have been stopped beforehand. Under federal law, it was illegal for this individual to purchase a firearm. He had a conviction for a crime that’s punishable by more than a year in prison, and he had a conviction for multiple domestic violence crimes. Both of those, it’s already ineligible. But, several things happened: Number one, the air force — the Obama administration didn’t report those convictions to the [NICS] database. That’s an endemic problem. It’s a problem with the federal government. It’s a problem with the states. And so, when he went in to buy the guns, they ran the background check, and they didn’t find it because it wasn’t in the database. But I’ll tell you we could have prevented this. In 2013, in the wake of Sandy Hook, I joined with Chuck Grassley, we introduced legislation that was called the Grassley-Cruz legislation. And it was aggressive legislation targeting felons and violent criminals to stop them from getting guns.”
He continued, “There were a couple elements of that legislation that were critical: One, it mandated that federal agencies, including the Air Force, report to the [NICS] because that was a problem back then. But, two, and this is an even more critical piece, if it had been reported to the background database, when he went into Academy to buy this — these weapons, he lied on the forms. That is a felony to lie on those forms. The Obama administration didn’t prosecute those cases. In 2010, 48,000 felons and fugitives lied and illegally tried to purchase guns. They prosecuted only 44 of them.”
Cruz concluded, “Democrats filibustered the legislation that would have resulted in this shooter being in federal prison instead of murdering those innocents in that Texas church.”
At the point when the Democrats have been held up to similar models of prosecution that fall on the Republicans on a yearly premise, it is plain to see that they don’t hold up well under their own principles.
Truth be told, it could be said with some sureness that on the grounds that the Democrats are not used to being addressed on their methods and loyalties by the press, they are flummoxed at whatever point they need to reply to genuine charges of inadequacy or unfitness for the position in view of a savage fanatic demeanor that puts their party before the general population. Cruz is completely ideal for his evaluation and the Democrats need to deliver their languid way to deal with legislating.
