In just a week after the Orlando shooting, Congress is already rushing to vote on not one but FOUR gun control proposals today, including the supposed “no-fly no-buy” loophole, even though the suspected Pulse nightclub killer Omar Mateen was a DHS contractor with two firearm licenses, therefore such a loophole would not have done anything at all to prevent the Orlando shooting itself.
Meanwhile, there are some 400 House bills stuck in the Senate (via The Hill):
Of the 518 bills or joint resolutions passed by the House since January 2015, only 122 have passed the Senate, according to Congress’s Legislative Information System, which tracks the status of legislation.
That leaves just shy of 400 House bills stuck in the Senate chamber. The total doesn’t include resolutions only taken up by the lower chamber, or concurrent resolutions, which aren’t sent to President Obama’s desk
Many of the proposals are currently stalled at the committee level. For example, legislation to ban bonuses for IRS employees until the department develops a “comprehensive customer service strategy” is currently awaiting action in the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Others, like the House legislation to crack down on the acceptance of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, were blocked by Senate Democrats.
Just to let you know what bs today’s vote is…
