The political Left would have the public believe that the Republican Party is a big group of trigger-happy gun nuts when, in fact, most Republicans are simply looking to protect Americans’ Constitutional freedoms and liberties.
However, it might surprise the Lefties to learn that many of their arch-enemies in the GOP are staunchly anti-gun. Today, we’ll suss out the party’s ideological traitors who are doing their part to support the Democrats’ gun control agenda.
Senator Mark Kirk—The Illinois senator is number one with a bullet (pun very much intended) because he’s been called “the most endangered Republican in the country.” A consistent anti-gun candidate, Senator Kirk voted for the Obama administration’s gun control nominee for Surgeon General.
Kirk also abandoned the NRA and was even presented with an award by an Illinois-based anti-gun group. It isn’t the first time that Kirk has sided with the Dems either. In the past, he has supported continued funding for Planned Parenthood and called for the closure of the so-called gun show loophole.
George W. Bush—It might come as a shocker, but Dubya wasn’t a fan of firearms. On the contrary, he publicly stated that he supported extending the assault weapons ban during his presidency. Additionally, he endeavored to raise the legal gun age from 18 to 21 and wanted trigger locks to be a requirement for all gun owners.
Senator Anitere Flores—Back in April, Senator Flores refused to support legislation that would have decriminalized accidental exposure of a concealed firearm, rendering it a non-arrestable offense and limiting the punishment to a $25 fine.
