Gun control legislation is one of the hot topics being pushed by the Democratic Party. If it were up to them, we’d be having to surrender any and all firearms that we have. It doesn’t matter whether they’re handguns or “assault-style” rifles.
Luckily, our right to bear arms is protected by the 2nd Amendment.
The only problem is that Democrats feel as though they can push for gun control without taking away our constitutional rights. They’re pushing for stricter background checks, a ban on assault rifles, a ban on magazines of 10 or more rounds, a ban on ghost guns, and much more.
Gun control only makes it harder for law-abiding citizens to own guns.
It’s crazy, but criminals don’t follow gun laws. Why? Because they’re criminals. They’re not going to abide by gun laws only to break other laws. Mass murder is a crime, too, yet the criminals are committing those without paying attention to the law.
The problem is that there’s only a handful of people who actually want to fight for the gun control legislation. They believe that it’s magically going to end mass shootings around the country. They’re delusional. And, we all know that the real reason for the push to limit gun ownership is so that Americans don’t have the ability to protect themselves against a tyrannical government.
Plenty of polls have shown that Americans aren’t in support of the new and stronger gun control laws.
And why should we?
Law-abiding citizens want guns for a number of reasons – only one of which is to be able to defend themselves against the government. Guns are also used as sport, for hunting, for hobby, and for self-defense.
A poll from Washington Post showed that in 2018, 65 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 29 were in favor of “red flag” laws as well as magazine capacity limits. Now, three years later, only 45 percent are in favor.
Why? What’s changed?
Well, there are a lot of things going on that demonstrate why people need to own guns. The world is a scarier place than it was three years ago – and much of that has to do with the Biden administration’s ability to offer protection and safety.
BLM and Antifa protests demonstrate that anyone can be a victim. The liberal cities don’t want to hold any of the rioters accountable. It doesn’t matter if they’re stopping innocent people or breaking into law-abiding businesses. And since the government isn’t going to protect the innocent, the innocent want to own guns so that they can take matters into their own hands.
There’s also something to be said about the massive number of immigrants entering the country illegally. As the Biden administration focuses on letting them in without checking their backgrounds, sanctuary cities let them commit crimes without deporting them. Crime rates are surging in such cities – and Americans want to know that they can defend their families and their homes.
It’s hard to understand why the liberals are pushing such things, even as they demand to be protected by such weapons. After all, aren’t they supposed to be mirroring the wants of the American people? It’s why they were voted in by the people…
Not long after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, Nancy Pelosi asked the National Guard to include a machine gun as part of the detail.
When Biden goes anywhere, he’s protected by security detail toting AR-15s and similar firearms.
It’s clear that liberal politicians are not against the presence of such guns. They believe that they’re an important part of offering protection. However, with the gun control legislation being written the way it is, they only want the government to have such weaponry.
We’ll see how far this goes. If any liberal politician thinks that Americans will hand over guns because of a “mandatory buyback,” they’re sadly mistaken.
