Around here we have become used to one thing down through the years. Anytime measures are presented that would save lives and help Americans as a whole Mitch McConnell will oppose them. It does not matter what the issue, legislation or idea. It simply does not matter to McConnell what happens or who dies, he is determined to make America a selfish land of violence, greed and death. Now today his march continues.
With the rash of gun violence over the years that have cost lives over and over, even the lives of children in our schools Americans are now asking our leaders to do something about it. We do not want one gun to be taken from responsible, law-abiding gun owners but one thing we insist on. We simply must keep guns out of the hands of criminals, the mentally disturbed, and people who are not responsible enough to keep criminals and the mentally disturbed from getting their hands on them.
And despite the carnage, the murder of innocence and the fact that some folks simply cannot secure their guns properly we can depend on one thing. Mitch McConnell opposing anything that helps America as a whole using propaganda and lies to do what he does best and the only thing he cares about in his wicked little mind. Raise money. Now he is at it again.
In an email to supporters of his campaign Mitch McConnell proves once again he is not only a bold-faced liar, but that he simply does not care about his country as long as the money rolls in and he keeps his power to destroy America for most Americans. His propaganda and distortions are amazing:
"You and I are literally surrounded. The gun-grabbers in the Senate are about to launch an all-out-assault on the Second Amendment. On your rights. On your freedom," the email opens.
It goes on to warn that "our freedom is under direct assault ... from those who want to shred our Constitution."
McConnell's campaign manager, Jesse Benton, highlights three of the new measures in the push for gun control: what he characterizes as "the Feinstein Gun Ban," Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-Calif.) legislation to ban certain types of weapons, which Benton says "will criminalize firearms by how they look"; a "thinly-veiled national gun registration scheme hidden under the guise of 'background checks"; and a ban on large ammunition magazines.
"It is almost hard to believe the sheer breadth and brazenness of this attempt to gut our Constitution," Benton writes.
Indeed, Mitch McConnell will oppose even background checks to buy a gun, banning military-style assault weapons and large magazines. All common-sense measures many Americans thought were already in place and many Americans support.
Which begs the question of the Senator for Communist China. Where was all this concern for our Constitution when he was helping gut it with the Patriot Act? Where was all this concern with our rights when he was gutting them with the FISA law allowing Americans to be wiretapped without a warrant? Indeed, where was this concern when he was fighting to allow folks like himself to buy our elections which culminated in the ungodly Citizens United ruling?
While tens of millions of Americans were saddened and inspired into action by the deaths of innocent children all over this great land the one thing that inspires and motivates this greedy, heartless man?:

Mitch McConnell represents all that is wrong with this country. Greed that expects all the money to be redistributed to himself and his ilk. An uncaring ignorance that would sit idly by as thousands die from a solvable problem. Arrogance, that thinks he should make money off everything, even the suffering of others.
Here at Hillbilly Report we are determined to defeat him in his reelection bid but even if we can't we have one simple message for him. Go to Hell where you belong.
