This Republican Rips Democrats a New One For UNHINGED Gun Control Agenda
(AmericanProsperity.com) – The recent string of mass shootings has Americans on edge. As a result, Democrats are taking the opportunity to push for gun control as part of their progressive agenda. While their legislation has garnished some support, US Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ) offers some harsh criticism for his colleagues backing the measure.
The Democrats latest gun control bill mirrors the ineffective policies of blue cities that have the highest levels of gun violence in America.

Rep. Biggs asserted Democrats simply don’t like the Second Amendment but won’t admit it. The Republican asserted the Left remains focused on banning firearms instead of societal issues, which he believes are more to blame than guns themselves. Biggs declared the issues stem from decades of blue city policies, adding that the Left ignores the reality that many Democratic-run cities have high crime rates while also touting strict gun control measures.
The Representative insisted that a majority of Americans believe schools would be safer if they allowed teachers and staff to arm themselves. Biggs also pointed out that Democratic policies do nothing to take guns away from criminals; they just hinder law-abiding Americans who want to defend themselves. Biggs called attention to the US Constitution which clearly states the Second Amendment “shall not be infringed,” adding the Democrats’ bills do just that.
The US House recently passed a legislation package that would limit magazines to holding only 15 rounds and raise the minimum age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21. If the measure passes the Senate vote, it will also create new laws on the safe storage of firearms, require universal background checks for the purchase of ghosts, place a ban on bump stocks, and add additional penalties for people trafficking guns and making straw purchases.
