New York Republican lawmaker who backed ‘assault weapons’ ban cancels reelection campaign

Rep. Chris Jacobs (R-NY), a virtually unheard-of Republican lawmaker, recently made headlines in the wake of the Uvalde, Texas mass shooting by breaking from the GOP and proclaiming his support for a ban on what the Democrats call “assault weapons.”

The great news for Republicans in New York and across the country, according to The Hill, is that the RINO lawmaker has decided not to seek a second term in the House. 

Notably, Jacobs was actually endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) in his run for office in 2020. But the lawmaker clearly joined the “just do something” choir in the wake of the mass shooting in Texas, even at the expense of trampling on the Second Amendment rights of tens of millions of U.S. gun owners.

“Today I am announcing that I will not run for the 23rd Congressional District. I will finish out my time … [as] a member of Congress to the end of the year,” Jacobs said on Friday.

Jacobs also expressed support for a number of additional asinine proposals that Democrats somehow believe will have an effect on gun deaths, including a ban on high capacity magazines, and raising the age of buying guns to 21, federally.

His sudden about-face on the Second Amendment rights afforded to all Americans received enough backlash from his own party that he was clearly told he would no longer have the party’s support.

Many liberals on social media applauded the Republican lawmaker for taking the bold stand, while others suggested he formally leave the GOP and sign up as an independent or even a Democrat, as his career on the right is virtually finished at this point.

Luckily, law-abiding citizens no longer have to worry about this joker’s vote in the House, which would have almost certainly aligned with the Democratic Party.
