If you stepped back from the trees far enough, you can see the forest. If you step far enough away from the far-Left, you will see their plan to take our guns and set criminals free. And do you know how those leftist liberals plan to pay for their ‘steal our guns and free the incarcerated’ plan?
No, that isn’t a joke.
As one story shared, although the House Dems aren’t planning on getting back to Washington for a few more weeks, they haven’t stopped planning. During the pandemic, various blue states and Democratic leadership have pushed to declare gun stores as “non-essential” businesses.
Of course, it is no secret that the Dems have been gun legislation happy from day one. From restrictions to bans to infringing on our 2nd Amendment rights, the liberal and far-Left have been aiming for our rights and threatening our ability to protect and defend ourselves. Now, they also want to set more of those people who are incarcerated free. How about that for irony?
As our story reported, “Republican Congressman Jim Jordan is warning his leftist colleagues want to use taxpayer money to pay states to let criminals out of prison, including felons.” And you thought we were kidding!
What the Congressman is speaking about here, is the recent move by state officials to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort that would have a two-fold benefit, many states have been releasing inmates from correction facilities based on several factors. In many cases, those with little time remaining on their sentences, older inmates (in particular those with preexisting medical conditions), and non-violent offenders have been candidates for release.
This would benefit the fight against spreading the virus, helping to stem the spread and keep the most vulnerable out of harm’s way. Although this wasn’t an ideal situation or solution, sometimes extreme situations demand extreme measures. Then the Dems, as our story reported, took it one step – or ten – too far.
That is where the Congressman comes in because now the Dems are pushing for the release of more inmates. In response to this dangerous move Congressman Jordan tweeded, “House Democrats are now considering #coronavirus legislation that PAYS states to let criminals out of prison.”
The initial plan, while less than ideal and posing some risk, was at least a reasonable idea. What the Congressman is concerned about is the frightening potential being suggested now. Citing the use of taxpayer money as “grants”, or story shared this unsettling document:
‘A grantee shall use amounts provided as a grant under this section for programs that provide for the following: “(1) Adopting and operating a cite-and-release process for individuals who are suspected of committing misdemeanor and felony offenses and who do not pose a risk of serious, imminent injury to a reasonably identifiable person,” the legislation states.’
In case you were wondering – the answer is yes. The worst-case scenario may have already happened as a result of releasing prisoners to help combat the pandemic. In this sad case, as the story continued, “a newly released Florida man is back in jail after he reportedly murdered a man just a day after he was let out of prison.”
The move to release inmates to fight the spread of the coronavirus – it’s a risky one. Unfortunately, it may have also proven to already be a deadly one as well. So what do the Dems want to do next? Of course, release even more inmates.
Does that mean expanding the guidelines for who is eligible? And regardless of how they choose to do it, doesn’t releasing more prisoners inherently increase the risk to all of us exponentially? This may not even be a matter of probability, but just good math.
The hardcore liberals, those leftist anti-gunner Dems aren’t only fighting the coronavirus, they are also continuing to wage war on our rights and even our safety. The good news is that one day we will get past this pandemic, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The bad news is, they will still be here – with no end in sight.
