Al Hoffman Jr., a longtime Republican donor based in Florida is vowing to withhold cash until new gun laws are passed.
Hoffman issued his demands in an email to a short list of Republican leaders, including Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Jeb Bush.
The New York Times reports him as saying, “I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons. Enough is enough!”
And, also stating in an interview, “For how many years now have we been doing this — having these experiences of terrorism, mass killings — and how many years has it been that nothing’s been done? It’s the end of the road for me.”
Here’s what I say, KEEP YOUR MONEY!
Understand this: In 1994, under Democrat control, a federal assault weapons ban was enacted. Sure, that lapsed back in 2004 with Republicans in power. But simply banning something and saying it’s illegal won’t do anything about stopping it.
We have laws that say it’s illegal to drink and drive. Does that stop people from doing it? NOPE!
We have laws that say it’s illegal to do drugs. Does that stop people from doing them? NOPE! As a matter of fact, California and other states are putting in safe places for people to go and take their illegal drugs with some supervision. You know, in case someone passes out or something.
We have laws that say it’s illegal to enter into this country without proper permission. Does that stop millions of people from entering the country illegally? NOPE! As a matter of fact, those on the left, and some on the right work very hard to promote it.
But… and this is a BIG but… none of that matters! They don’t care and don’t want to talk about it because, you know, GUNS ARE BAD MKAY?!
They argue for stricter gun laws. Many of them call for the complete banning of guns.
Yes, the same people calling for the banning of guns are the same people who just years ago were praising Atwood’s The Handmaids Tale.
Yes, these are the same people who now protest the Netflix drama because it’s about oppressing women under total government control.
Yes, the same people who want the government to come and take all the guns saying only police should have guns.
Yes, the same people who protest the police saying they have too much power and go around killing people, because, after all, you know, GUNS ARE BAD MKAY?!
Talking in circles is the sign of an ignorant argument.
The fact remains: Criminals are always gonna criminal. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT LAWS!
