American’s Gun Rights Under Attack from All Sides, Get Ready to Keep Yours By Force

Opinion

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been, had it never shone.” ~ John Steinbeck

In Iowa, Sleepy Joe just stated that he wants to “ban magazines that hold multiple bullets.” Since, in all of world history, no magazine has ever been manufactured that holds only one cartridge, Joe conspicuously wants a federal prohibition of all guns with, or capable of accepting magazines. Sleepy Joe is so predictable.

“Beto,” is advocating a “non-voluntary ‘buy-back’” (AKA: forced confiscation) of all currently legally-owned guns that he doesn’t like.

Listen carefully to Kamala! She said, “If elected president and you don't surrender your guns, I will sign an executive order, and police will show up at your door!”

The dreaded, NKVD-style “knock-on-the-door-at-midnight” is coming to a place near you! At least Kamala is brutally candid, unlike most of her mealy-mouthed commissars.

Buttigieg “supports a new federal ban on assault-style weapons, as well as a voluntary buyback program for existing assault-style weapons.” We all know from past experience that the “voluntary” part is a lie (see Beto, above).

Booker, when elected, will establish a “federal registry” of all guns, plus a separate federal registry of all individual gun owners. We’re all going on a “List!” American citizens who want to continue to own guns will have to “apply,” and then re-apply every few years. Naturally, Democrat's protective gaurds need not apply.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors (all liberal Democrats) just declared our NRA to be a “Domestic Terrorist Organization.” Simultaneously of course, ANTIFA enjoys their blessing. Individual NRA members are now “terrorists.”

Walmart’s CEO, also a liberal Democrat and who dubiously claims to be a gun-owner himself (they all do), has sanctimoniously declared his stores will no longer sell to us peons “ammunition for short-barreled rifles.” Like Sleepy Joe, he is sublimely ignorant of relevant facts pertaining to firearms, which is not surprising.

Democrats War on Guns
Democrats War on Guns

The dogma from Democrat/socialists is clear, and becoming clearer by the day: When we’re in power, we will come to your home and forcibly confiscate your guns, EVERY ONE OF THEM!

We, of course, will retain ours.

Past pseudo-pious declarations that “We are not coming after your guns” are/were sleazy lies, as we see.

Doubt that at your peril.

“The type of training (rifle/pistol in the Czech Republic) that we went through is currently impossible on my side of the world (France). And I realize how much those in former colonies of the USSR hunger for individual freedom, while how naively citizens of Western Civilization are carelessly surrendering theirs. When you have been brutally enslaved for sixty years by Communist tyrants, the word ‘freedom’ has special meaning.” ~ From a friend in Western Europe

While our government officials are removing rights from the people, they are removing people from rights. Being a law abiding citizen will not prevent accusation of potential law violations. The accusations alone will lead to confiscation of firearms and denial of rights to arms. This is happening now even without new “Red Flag” laws. As we gather to make a stand, our number of legally armed is being diminished. Degrading more citizens into the prohibited person underclass is an effective tactic of our enemies. This reduces the resistance to force required to disarm the population. A force that will require… Read more »

What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death: 65% of those deaths are by suicide, which would never be prevented by gun laws;15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty… Read more »

What gun enthusiasts don’t seem to understand is the 2nd Amendment doesn’t give people the right to shoot guns. It says people can keep and wear (bear) weapons. Arms doesn’t necessarily mean firearms. And, owning a gun doesn’t guarantee protection. If an intruder breaks into your home, where’s your gun? No intruder will allow you time to go get it and load it. If you happen to have a gun within arms length at the time you still don’t have a right to fire away. Is the intruder armed with a gun? If not, you’ve got issues. Is there anyone… Read more »

If an intruder manages to make it from my front gate to my front door, I would be very impressed. If the intruder has a gun and foolishly decides to use it, then I will decline to save his life.

The bigger question is why hasn’t any Republican brought this up? I do not like having to vote for the lesser of 2 evils but this is what we face in 2020.
