Their understanding of “compromise”

…is nearly as comprehensive as that of “due process.”

Susan Collins Unveils a Gun-Control Compromise
After the Senate voted down four gun-control bills inspired by the Orlando massacre, the Maine Republican Susan Collins unveiled compromise legislation Tuesday that addresses a bipartisan concern: individuals suspected of terrorist ties being able to purchase guns.
[…]
The New Hampshire Republican Kelly Ayotte emphasized that the legislation protects Americans’ due-process rights, a major concern among Republicans who voted against a Democratic bill restricting sales on Monday.

Collins is the NRA B+ rated fool whose closest approach to being pro-RKBA is that there are only some infringements she’s OK with. Ayotte, you may recall, is one of the turncoats who voted for cloture on the Manchin-Toomey-Gottlieb abomination, allowing it to go to a vote; but then she threw a hissy fit because they wouldn’t let her amend it further to expand mental health prohibitions.

The compromise (PDF) is that both statist parties get the unethical, unworkable, rights-violating additions to the prohibited persons list, and the Republicans can pretend it includes “due process.” The only folks giving anything up are the people they screw over.

“Due process” is not being allowed to beg for reconsideration after you’ve lost a human/civil right by bureaucratic decree by being placed on a secret list that has never resulted in the capture of a terrorist. For pretty much any reason, or none.

To learn what due process actually is, one would have to refer to the Bill of Rights, with which these oathbreakers regard as a to-do list of things to be trashed.

“…nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;”

They have to go through the “process” first,to establish the alleged necessity. An ex post facto “hearing” in which you may not be allowed to challenge or even see supposed evidence against you does not count.

This all sounds terribly familiar.

  1. Call your senators please; 202-224-3121
    They all have contact forms on their web pages as well.

    No gun control. No secret lists. No Collins-Ayotte amendment.

    Accourding to GOA; ‘There is no statutory limit to the number of people who could be placed on lists based on “credible” secret evidence. ‘

    1. Here’s mine. 1) They go away, and never come back. Repeal all current restrictions. 2) They can have the two piece of junk guns in my safe, the ones that don’t work properly. I keep the others. Everyone else keeps everything (though they’re free to sweeten the pot by offering their junk guns.)

      I’m DONE with their “compromises.”

  2. Those who support and advocate this so called gun control compromise can not also believe in this;

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,…”

    because they must think they (Women or men) and not God can give or take away our rights… by introducing such legislation.

  3. I sat my wife down this monday and told her “I am a Patriot.” That after seeing that the Senate had voted down the bills trying to take even more of our gun rights. She looked at me kind of funny, not understanding what exactly what I was getting at. I explained in just a few words that if push came to shove, and America became involved in another civil war over freedom, I fully intend to take up arms and fight with other patriots to try and take back the country. She knew that there was no arguing or anything further to be said. I hope it is just an exercise in thought, but things don’t look good from where I watch. May cooler heads prevail.

    1. It’s an honor to be among men. May I never have to follow you into battle, but if it’s war they want, follow I will. G-d be with you.
