A Democratic Party-associated dark cash group promotes Congress’ new gun control legislation, The Bipartisan Safer Community Act.
Build Back Together, a non-profit group that supported President Joe Biden’s nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, announced Thursday that it is funding a six-figure ad campaign to promote the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act in key midterm swing states, The Hill reported.
The group is apparently targeting Wisconsin and Nevada, with an advertisement campaign to celebrate the Bill Biden signed into Law. (RELATED: 14 House Republicans Join With Every Democrat To Send Gun Control Bill To Biden’s Desk)
“Gun violence is tearing our country apart. For the first time in decades, Congress has done something about it,” stated the 30-second ad, titled “Bottom Line.”
“This new law addresses loopholes, strengthens background checks for those under 21, and provides funding for mental health and crisis intervention programs,” the ad continues. Although some doubted that it was possible, President Biden made it happen. Joe Biden is aware that we must take more actions to protect our communities. This is about saving lives. That’s the bottom line.”
Fifteen Republican senators, including Texas Sen. John Cornyn and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, joined all 50 Democrats in passing the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.
Some conservatives criticized the legislation as a way for the U.S. government to “disarm law-abiding citizens.”
Cornyn, who received boos and jeers at the Texas Republican State Convention after supporting the gun control legislation, told reporters Tuesday that Republicans are done supporting gun control legislation. Biden stated that he is “determined” not to allow “weapons-of-war” or “high capacity magazines” after the Highland Park massacre.
“It seemed to me to be yesterday the president talked about everything that they wanted but they didn’t get in the bill,” said Cornyn, according to The Hill. The Senate and Congress don’t support the kind of things that he called for. In other words, they can’t get done.”
