Ted Lieu, Schiff unveil bill for national ban of rodent glue traps

With a national debt topping $34 trillion, an increase of $24 trillion in the past 15 years alone, and upwards of 10 million illegal immigrants invading our wide-open southern border in the past three years, you can count on Democrats to be focused on problem-solving.

Enter U.S. Reps. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) The dynamic duo temporarily put aside their focus on looking out for criminals to focus on another victim of society: rodents.

Lieu introduced the Glue Trap Prohibition Act, a bill to place a national ban on the possession and use of glue traps to catch rodents, his office noted in a release. Schiff is an original cosponsor of this bill.

Turns out, according to the Democrat, these traps kill rats.

“Glue traps – boards coated with adhesive used to catch and kill pests – are among the cruelest ways to eliminate rodents. In their attempts to escape the glue, animals may tear off their skin, and some may even gnaw off their own limbs. Animals that do not escape die of blood loss, suffocation, or dehydration. Glue traps also pose a public health risk. The CDC urges Americans not to use glue traps, as ensnared rodents can spread disease,” the statement said.

Lieu spoke out against the suffering of trapped rats: “Glue traps are ruthless, inhumane, and can be dangerous to the health of humans and their pets. There are numerous other ways to trap small animals that don’t prolong their suffering. As a proud member of the Animal Protection Caucus, I’m pleased to introduce this bill to stop the needless suffering of these animals.”

If only he would show the same concern for the suffering of the American people due to the policies he and his party push.

In the end, it’s almost as if the entitled D.C. political class is spoofing the public… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
