Gun control negotiations are breaking down as both sides seek compromise. We should pray for wisdom for our leaders in this time.

From Reuters. The lead Republican negotiator in U.S. Senate efforts to craft a bipartisan gun safety bill walked out of the talks on Thursday, while the lead Democrat remained optimistic that lawmakers could vote on legislation before leaving for a two-week July 4 recess.

“It’s fish or cut bait,” Senator John Cornyn said after hours of negotiations that included his fellow Republican Senator Thom Tillis and Democratic Senators Chris Murphy and Kyrsten Sinema….

However, Tillis and Murphy later said the talks were close to reaching agreement and added that legislative text for a bill could emerge in coming days….

“To land a deal like this is difficult. It comes with a lot of emotions. It comes with political risk to both sides. But we’re close enough that we should be able to get there,” said Murphy, the lead Democratic negotiator….

Disagreements remained over two main provisions: how to provide incentives to states to create ‘red flag’ laws, in which guns can be temporarily taken away from people who are deemed dangerous; and the ‘boyfriend loophole,’ which allows authorities to block abusive spouses from buying firearms but does not cover “intimate partners” who are not married.

Cornyn, whose home state of Texas does not have a red flag law and is seen as unlikely to enact one, wants the funding for that provision to cover other efforts for people with mental illness, such as “crisis intervention programs….”

I think we need to listen to a former service man who stated that in the armed forces you are required to go through a 3 month psychology course before you were even allowed to train on gun like a AR15 with out live rounds. I don’t remember how much more time it was of training before a live round was used.
He also stated this gun is a weapon of war not intended for civilian purchase or use. So I agree with him get the evaluation of psychology and the training required by our own armed forces or you don’t get this weapon.
I heard one of the Texas political members say we use them to shot hogs with! LOL no wonder we buy them and we look as stupid as the ones who want to take the guns away from us. I support gun reform in a way that it needs to reform raising the age was not any answer to any question. This goes back to one thing how many empty guns have killed people? Answer none it was empty.
People kill people guns don’t. You load a gun and lay it down it will do nothing but lay there. It won’t go on a shot out or kill anything with out help from a person to pick it up.
God Blesss every person with common sense and I ask in the name of Jesus to keep us safe from evil.

What stands between us and tyranny is our 2nd Amendment! An armed people can’t be taken over! This administration supports murder in the womb and after birth! They support children being allowed to transition from one sex to another as young as 3! They support transvestites in our schools to pervert our children! They support children being exposed to pornographic books in school libraries K-12! They support children as young as 6-7 saying they want to have sex with adults! If they cared about school shooters, they would give big money to schools for the same security as is at the White House and Congress! Don’t be deceived, they want your guns so they would have ultimate power over the citizenry! Our founders saw these nuts trying to steal a country and that is why they put in the 2nd Amendment! To protect us all from a Tyrannical government! FATHER GOD please deliver us from this evil government in JESUS NAME! Amen!

Heavenly Father, we know that all things are possible for you… even with our sinfulness. First, we ask for courage and determination for the negotiators trusting You to act. We know that You give wisdom (Prov. 2:6) and that if “anyone” asks for wisdom that you will give it (James 1:5). We ask for any who has put their trust in You to ask humbly for wisdom. Grant it we pray in Jesus’ name. Grant favor in all the negotiators’ for what You have spoken through the servant You choose. Lord, we need a miracle that there be a solution without surrendering our Constitutional rights … and You are a Got miracles! Thank You for Your faithfulness. We praise and glorify You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Dangerous…for all law abiding legal gun owners. Criminals do not follow gun laws, the FBI, DOJ, Home Land Security, Biden Administration DOES NOT abide by a law.

    Biden wants to put in place an executive order to make abortion legal…he wants to usurp the possible decision of over turning Roe vs Wade. Aren’t babies children? He will allow babies/CHILDREN to be brutally ripped from the womb, body parts sold for wealth but is claiming that GUN grabbing will save children???? This isn’t a gun issue. Its a mental health issue and they refuse to discuss it.

    Also, the media, McCaughey, Biden are not discussing the 48 lock downs Uvalde school district experienced in a year. Why? Anyone know why the lockdowns occured? DRUG CARTEL have taken over the town!!!! Ya think the DRUG Cartel is going to hand in their AR’s and other guns?

    Biden pushing gun control when he left behind billions of dollars worth of guns, tanks, explosives etc to the terrorist Taliban.

    This is nothing more then a Nazi take over. A holocaust in the making

I think it needs a lot of prayer. A house divided can not stand. The devil is having his way with us because we are giving gins to children and expecting them to act like adults. This is not your father’s world. Video games glorify guns and make kids think that they are powerful with these war machines. Upping the age to purchase one is not taking away your rights. We need to stop drinking the civil war koolaid. We say save the life but once it’s here we have no restrictions on the lawless! We are still killing our youth!!
