“No one is trying to take your guns.”
How many times have we heard this leftist narrative when the subject of gun control comes up? I’ve heard it literally thousands of times. They’ve simply spouted that they want “common sense” measures in place to prevent mass shootings. Of course, when you bring up gun-control cities like Chicago and DC they come up with some excuse as to why it doesn’t work there. One thing always remains the same: “I respect the 2nd Amendment.”
Senator Kamala Harris spoke this very sentence a few weeks ago right before saying “they are killing our babies,” ironically just days after tweeting that Republicans were “immoral” for wanting to ban abortions after 20 weeks, when abortions require a procedure that requires live vivisection of babies who feel pain.
Well, the narrative is over. They don’t respect the 2nd Amendment. They want to repeal it. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote yesterday that the 2nd Amendment is outdated and should be repealed. Make no mistake, while they may not all admit it, this is how leftists all feel.
In addition to Steven’s statement, just in the last few weeks:
- The Illinois legislature passed a bill to confiscate guns from 18-20 year olds
- The GA legislature had a bill introduced to confiscate guns
- A NC sheriff’s candidate suggested that he was fine confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens by killing them
Some on the left are admonishing these moves and statements, but that is only because they want to maintain the illusion that they don’t share these views. Don’t be fooled, they very much do.
Yes, the left is actually suggesting that people who don’t conform to their ideas on gun control be killed, which is WHY we have a 2nd Amendment in the first place.
What to do
I want to give President Trump the benefit of the doubt when he sought to seek some sort of compromise, but if the Left has proven anything over the last year or so, it is that no compromise will ever mollify them. Therefore, the compromises we’ve already made with the National Firearms Act and other gun control measures are not only enough, but too much. It’s time to start taking back ground, as Missouri Senate candidate Austin Petersen boldly proclaimed to me in a recent interview. We can’t be afraid to say that YES, we SHOULD be able to have weapons of war. That’s what the 2nd Amendment is FOR, to put government in check. We need to stop “gunsplaining” as the Left is now calling it about the difference between automatic and semi-automatic and the difference between ARs and M4s. We should be able to have whatever we damn well please. I don’t have a problem in this day in age with having criminal background checks. Those can be done in a few minutes.
Beyond that, let’s quit playing political defense on this issue and start playing political offense. Otherwise, the Left has made it clear they’ll have us playing violent defense. They’re coming for us, folks. I thought MAYBE we’d have a couple more years, but they’re coming for us NOW. They WANT the totalitarian regime they claim the Trump Administration to be, but they want it under a Barack Obama or a Hilary Clinton or a Kamala Harris. When you have Sheriff’s candidates suggesting they kill citizens to confiscate guns, yeah, it’s time to stop compromising. They aren’t marching for their lives; they’re marching to take ours if we don’t give up our freedom.
