Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “The ‘Illusion of Safety’ has always been a problem in…” ~ American Army Officer in Syria.
When Democrats (Marxists) seize power, kiss your guns au revoir. In Illinois, Democrats have now seized political power, and they’re wasting no time. Americans who wants to purchase a gun in IL would now be required to turn-over all social-media records for “examination.”
When examiners don’t like something (always unspecified), they can arbitrarily veto that sale, and all future sales. Your rights are taken away, forever, absent any kind of due process.
Other people, even family members, won’t be able to legally touch, even for an instant, any gun belonging to you, without first going through a licensed dealer and a NICS check. So, you can no longer take your family shooting, nor attend any training session where you “touch” other guns.
Normal-capacity magazines and undefined “assault weapons” will soon all be forcibly confiscated by the government, without compensation. Just like in NJ, resistors will become instant felons. No “grandfathering,” and no exception for retired LEOs
A year from now, when violent crime goes up in IL (as it always does when restrictive gun laws are passed), Democrats, instead of admitting they’re wrong, will predictably say, “We didn’t go far enough,” and a whole new round of onerous, arbitrary, ill-defined restrictions will be forced upon Illinois residents.
Currently, in NYC, it is all but impossible for a citizen to legally own any kind of gun, and gun ordinances (administered by a bloated and corrupt bureaucracy) are so voluminous and poorly-written that for even legal gun-owners to avoid violations is impossible.
Of course, that’s the way Democrats want it.
Any citizen they decide they don’t like is surely committing some “violation,” and through “selective enforcement,” Democrats can then vehemently punish critics, while overlooking identical “violations” on the part of their obedient lackeys.
That is exactly what is currently going on in NYC, with IL only a year or so behind. The rest of our Republic when Democrats rule (and they mean to rule) will quickly follow suit.
CA, NJ, MA, CT, MD, and now IL are a few examples of all-inclusive gun-bans, in various stages of completion. Within a few years, all will be officially “gun-free” and any hold out gun owners will be criminals
That is the goal of Democrats, and always has been. Yet, Democrat politicians, and their bodyguards, specifically exempt themselves from all these new laws.
So, only they and their lackeys (soon to be known as “commissars”) will have guns.
Their critics won’t, nor will their political opponents, nor will “ordinary” citizens.
Sounds alot like Venezuela!
