Pallone’s Republican Challenger Slaps at ‘Do-Nothing’ Congress

TRENTON – On the steps of the Statehouse this afternoon, U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12) called on House Republican leadership to post a bill banning those on no-fly and terror watch lists from being able to purchase guns.
Republicans control the U.S. House of Representatives.
“If they posted it, it would pass,” said Pallone. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump supports a no-fly list gun sales ban. But Republican leaders won’t post it because they know it would pass, the congressman added.
Running against the Democratic incumbent, Republican challenger Brent Sonnek-Schmelz (pictured below) slapped at Pallone and the body as a whole.
“We need to get guns out of the hands of terrorists and criminals, while protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners,” he said. “The do-nothing Congress that Frank Pallone has been a part of for twenty-eight years should start getting serious about the threat of radical Islamic terrorism and protect the American people instead of pointing fingers at each other and getting nothing done.”
