John Kennedy is the junior Senator from Louisiana. He was a Democrat until 2007, when he switched to the Republican Party. Prior to winning the senate seat in the 2016, election, Kennedy served as the Treasurer of Louisiana since 2000.
Earlier this week, Kennedy spoke to NOLA.com (The Times-Picayune) where he blasted politicians trying to destroy the Second Amendment as he defended his bill that would improve the national background check system. In his discourse, Kennedy said that what we need is idiot control, not gun control. He was addressing the inability of many bureaucrats to do their jobs or do what is right.
(Roll Call) – Sen. John Kennedy on Tuesday took a stand against bureaucratic incompetence in the name of the Second Amendment.
“I don’t think we need more gun control; I think we need more idiot control,” the Louisiana Republican told NOLA.com, blasting a new bipartisan gun control bill that appears to be aimed at preventing more of those so-called idiots from purchasing firearms.
The bill, by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, would dock federal agencies that fail to upload relevant disqualifying records into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, and would grant more money to states that comply.
The legislation already has 17 Democratic co-sponsors, 17 Republican co-sponsors, and an independent co-sponsor, Sen. Angus King of Maine, and is expected to pass the chamber easily when it is put to a vote…
If we did have idiot control, the Democratic Party would not exist and many Republicans in Congress would not be in their prestigious positions, living off of US taxpayers. Obama would not have ever been president and Hillary would be a forgotten First Lady, but alas, you can’t legislate against idiocy or stupidity, so we’ll continue to have to fight for all of our rights that idiots are trying to strip away from us.
