In this special episode of the Conservative Conscience, we are joined by a special patriot, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), to discuss the latest GOP betrayal. This time it’s guns. We can’t have nice things because even the few issues where there is official consensus to do the right thing, Republicans will contaminate the good parts, add in bad provisions, and sabotage our messaging so that Democrats get what they want. Then they will use outside allies to lie about what they did and deceive members on the details of the policy and process.
We delve into the subterfuge used by GOP leadership to manipulate a popular right-to-carry bill as a means of passing more gun control. The establishment gun lobbies have ensured that good legislation never passes and continue to support bad legislation, despite their reputation as defenders of the Second Amendment. This episode is a must listen for those who are looking to understand the games behind the scenes in Congress. Whereas the Democrat Party harnesses it’s base to promote its agenda, the GOP does everything it can to make an end-run around its base.
