The Second Amendment took a hit yesterday as corrupt GOP members of the Senate voted to confirm a radical leftist to the position of Attorney General.
Merrick Garland was confirmed to the office of Attorney General under president Joe Biden by a margin of 70-30 in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday.
20 Republican senators voted to confirm Garland – who has a history of opposing gun rights and downplaying Black Lives Matter and Antifa violence – including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and Lindsey Graham (SC).
The full list of Republicans who voted to confirm Garland can be read below:
- Roy Blunt (MT)

In February, Minority Leader McConnell announced his intent to support the confirmation of Garland, setting the tone for Senate Republicans’ stance on the issue:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-TN) stated Tuesday afternoon that he fully intends to support the nomination of President Joe Biden’s Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland, despite Garland’s unconstitutional views on the Second Amendment, supportive views of anti-white bigots, and politically biased classification of “domestic terrorism.”
According to Politico, McConnell simply responded “I do” when asked if he planned to throw his support behind the confirmation of Garland in the Senate.
Garland, failed Supreme Court nominee under the Obama administration, has a lengthy track record of supporting anti-Second Amendment legislation, as reported in some detail by National File.
Biden’s Attorney General has also claimed that Antifa attacks on federal courthouses do not meet his standard his definition of – “domestic terrorism” – which he liberally applies to election integrity protesters – because they “happened at night.”
Most recently, Garland promised to use his authority as the highest ranking law enforcement officer in the country to “ensure respectful treatment” of the pro-Biden corporate media.
The Senate on Wednesday confirmed Merrick Garland as Joe Biden’s Attorney General in a 70-30 vote.
Among some of the Republicans who voted to confirm Garland include Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn and Lindsey Graham.
Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley are two noted Republican Senators who voted against Garland’s confirmation.
Garland’s rise to the country’s top law enforcement officer is part of Barack Obama’s revenge.
Obama nominated Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in 2016, but Senate Republicans refused to hold a hearing.
Merrick Garland is an anti-constitutional hack who refused to call illegally crossing the border a crime during his senate confirmation hearing last month.
“Do you believe that illegal entry at America’s borders should remain a crime?” Hawley asked.
“I haven’t thought about that question… uhhh… uhhhhhhh… I just haven’t thought about that question,” Garland reluctantly replied. “I think the uh, the uh, president has, uh, made clear that we are a country of uh with borders and uh a concern about national security. Um, I don’t know of proposal to uh decriminalize, but um, still make it unlawful to uh, enter.”
Garland continued to assert that he does not know the answer to the question and hasn’t thought about it.
