It will take the passing of quite some time before many Americans can erase the image of the Senate’s new Democratic Minority Leader Charles “Chuck” Schumer being overly emotional when describing President Donald Trump’s ban on unvetted Muslims from seven terrorist-havens in the Middle East.
What most Americans believe is a common-sense policy caused the career politician to choke back tears in his favorite place — in front of TV cameras and microphones. Schumer — a battle-hardened partisan — appeared to have a difficult time talking about Trump’s temporary ban on Muslim refugee resettlement. Schumer labeled Trump’s executive order “mean-spirited and un-American,” which sounded like a political symphony to the Trump-hating propaganda meisters covering the Schumer performance.
“This political hack really gets my goat! He’s been a member of both houses of Congress for many, many years and I’ve never seen Schumer holding tears back after thousands of Americans were killed fighting the enemy — Islamic terrorists. He never shed a single tear for the victims of the Benghazi attack. He’s a disgrace as an American not to mention a shady Senator,” says Schumer’s fellow New Yorker, Henry McGrath, a retired NYPD cop.
Schumer has also been quoted as saying, “Tears are running down the cheeks of the Statue of Liberty tonight as a grand tradition of America, welcoming immigrants, that has existed since America was founded has been stomped on.”
“Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is the chief obstructionist of domestic policies and appointments of President Donald Trump,” well-known police adviser and former NRA publications editor John M. Snyder noted this week.
“Schumer opposes the civil right to keep and bear arms as well as the civil right to life itself,” Snyder added.
President Trump himself has called Schumer the “clown of clowns,” while top talk show host — and former Justice Department chief of staff — Mark Levin called him a hypocrite since Schumer is a staunch “gun-grabber” who wishes to disarm American citizens while he packs a concealed handgun and is usually surrounded by armed protection officers.
“Hopefully,” Snyder said, “there are enough patriots in the Senate Democratic Caucus to overcome Schumer’s attempts to thwart the will of voters as expressed last November in the victory they gave Trump for his America first positions.”
“Schumer plots to prevent Senate confirmation of Supreme Court nominees who support the right to life and the right to keep and bear arms. He worked to derail the appointment of gun rights and life rights supporter Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as Attorney General,” said the top spokesperson for gun rights.
Snyder said, “Sen. Schumer is a leading opponent of the right to life and of the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of life. He promotes abortion and even partial birth abortion. He promotes bans on the acquisition and use of firearms and certain types of firearms by law-abiding citizens. Citizens want them for the defense of life as well as for other legitimate purposes.”
“Schumer, the ‘clown of clowns,’ is a leading spokesman in the United States today for what St. John Paul termed the ‘culture of death.'”
Snyder pointed out that, “Clown Schumer attacks President Trump as a hard right guy. But the Senate Minority Leader himself is a ring leader of the loony left. Voters have dumped these nut cakes. Senators should approve Trump’s pick for Attorney General. They should reject Schumer’s plan to hold up approval of Supreme Court nominees.
“They also should enact legislation in support of the right to life and of the right to keep and bear arms. Among the latter is the proposed Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, H.R. 38, by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) with 140 cosponsors. H.R. 38 “would require states to recognize the validity of every other state’s gun carry licenses, but it would require concealed carriers to follow the specific laws of whatever state in which they are carrying,” reported the Washington Free Beacon.
The bill “ads language designed to ensure that those in Constitutional Carry states, where no permit is required to concealed carry, are protected by the legislation,” continued the Beacon.
The bill also would allow concealed carry in the National Park System, the National Wildlife Refuge System, and on lands under the authority of the Bureau of Land Management, Army Corps of Engineers, and Bureau of Reclamation.
H.R. 38 has been referred to the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives.
“We need national reciprocity for concealed gun carry,” said Snyder.
“A positive state CCW or concealed carry policy enables a qualified individual to carry a particular concealed firearm within his or her state of jurisdiction if legally permitted to do so,” Snyder noted.
“With national reciprocity, a state-issued CCW permit would be honored throughout the country, similar to the way in which state-issued driving permits now are honored throughout the country,” he added.
“In a survey of United States police chiefs and sheriffs conducted last year by the National Association of Chiefs of Police, over 86 percent said they supported nationwide recognition of state issued concealed weapons permits,” Snyder.
“With President Trump now in office and with Republicans in charge of both houses of Congress, proponents of the individual Second Amendment civil right to keep and bear arms can and should advance the American freedom agenda,” Snyder said.
“In addition to fostering national reciprocity for concealed firearm carry,” he added, “Washington should slash the law enforcement funding of cities and states following policies contrary to the spirit of the Second Amendment, and repeal federal laws interfering with Second Amendment liberties.”
A practicing Catholic, Snyder has been named “the dean of Washington gun lobbyists” by the Washington Post and New York Times, “a champion of the right of self-defense” by the Washington Times, the “gun dean” by Human Events, and “the senior rights activist in Washington” by Shotgun News. The Trace designated him a power broker.
He has been an NRA magazine editor and official of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Second Amendment Foundation. He directs Telum Associates, LL.C, and serves on boards of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, Council for America, and American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens.
