Sen. Marco Rubio Introduces Bill to Take Gun Rights from Trump Supporters

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, speaks in Nashua, New Hampshire, USA, on April 18, 2015.

Senator Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that will be used to take away the Second Amendment rights of Trump supporters.

Rubio, a Florida Republican, is sponsoring the Terror Intelligence Improvement Act, a bill that failed before. The bill would summarily end the Second Amendment rights of anyone who has been “investigated” for “terrorism.”

Of course, that means al the fake investigations our corrupt FBI and other policing agencies launch to harass conservatives. And you can bet that this bill will never, ever be applied to anyone left of center.

According to the National Justice:

If passed, the law will grant the FBI and DNI the authority to draw up lists of US citizens arbitrarily labeled “domestic terrorists” and flag them during background checks. Those placed on the new watch list could be registered based solely on suspicion, even if an investigation fails to find evidence of criminal or “terrorist” wrongdoing. Federal courts that have examined the FBI’s various “terrorist watch lists” uncovered that the Bureau regularly places law-abiding citizens on them because they don’t like who they are or their political views.

The bill also essentially convicts someone without a trial as the bill takes away the constitutional rights of suspects and then forces them to file for redress after their rights are already taken. You are guilty until proven innocent with this bill and forced to spend thousands to prove your innocence.

One would think a law meant to take away an American’s rights would have a seriously high threshold. Unfortunately, the threshold for having your rights taken from you is low.

“Under Rubio’s legislation, being ‘investigated’ for ‘domestic terrorism’ — a vaguely interpreted offense mainly defined by partisan journalists and NGOs — which potentially millions of non-leftist Americans could be subjected to today, would nullify your ability to purchase a firearm,” the site explained.

It might figure that it is Rubio who is sponsoring this.
