NRA-ILA: The Third Time Isn’t Always a Charm

Biden NRA-ILA Third Time Not Charm

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The Democratic National Convention (DNC) took place this week, and, as expected, the nomination of former vice president Joe Biden (D) as the party’s nominee to challenge President Donald Trump (R) became official. After nearly half-a-century in the federal government, and more than three decades since he first campaigned to be president, his third run to be the Democrat candidate for president finally paid off. In 1988, during his first run, he would have been one of the youngest Democrat candidates to have sought the office. Now, in 2020, he is the oldest, from either major party, to be the nominee.

Persistence often does pay off.

The convention, which spanned four nights, was held virtually, as will be the Republican National Convention (RNC) this week. And while there were a number of subjects discussed, the main message seemed to be less praise of Biden, and more condemnation of President Trump.

Two subjects seemed to get little, if any, attention, especially from Joe Biden, his running mate, Kamala Harris (D), and most of the key speakers.

First, it seemed odd that, with the turmoil taking place in so many of our nation’s major cities, there wasn’t any condemnation of the widespread lawlessness and violence taking place, nor mention of a plan to quell it. Of course, the concern over violence in our country has driven the recent surge in the purchase of firearms for personal protection. Which brings us to the other topic barely mentioned.

Guns.

Harris, during her acceptance speech for nomination as vice presidential candidate, made a brief reference to Biden’s work on the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. In his coordinated remarks, Biden made an equally brief reference. But other than that, there really wasn’t much talk about guns.

Even billionaire Michael Bloomberg (D/R/I/?), whose short run for nomination cost him an estimated $1 billion, didn’t bring up guns during the small amount of time he was on the stage Thursday night. Considering he is personally bankrolling America’s largest anti-gun organization and has made eviscerating the Second Amendment one of his primary goals for decades, one can only presume he was told to not bring up the subject.

Perhaps the Democrats have determined they already have the anti-gun vote locked up, which is likely. Every one of the more than two-dozen candidates who, at one time during the campaign for 2020 sought to be where Biden is today, tried to prove they would do more to target America’s law-abiding gun owners. And while the Biden-Harris ticket didn’t speak about their goals to eliminate the Second Amendment, there is ample evidence to show what they intend.

The national Democratic Party platform spells out its opposition to the right to keep and bear arms.

Kamala Harris, before she gave up on her bid to be president this time around, tried to make sure people understood how anti-gun she is.

And Biden has included his roadmap to diminishing the rights of gun owners on his campaign website.

Biden wants to ban and confiscate popular semi-automatic firearms, like the AR-15, as well as standard capacity magazines. He wants to destroy the American firearms industry with frivolous lawsuits brought by anti-gun organizations. He wants to impose arbitrary limitations on your rights protected under the Second Amendment, allowing you to buy only one firearm a month. He wants to criminalize the private transfer of firearms. He wants the federal government to promote firearms licensing schemes at the state level. He wants to impose one-size-fits-all mandatory storage laws and promote fictional firearms he has convinced himself exist outside of Hollywood.

And that’s just some of what he wants to push. His screed against guns is nearly 3,500 words long. No wonder he didn’t delve into the subject during his acceptance speech; he would have been talking until midnight!

So, while the talk of guns was light during the DNC, we already know the threats we all face should the Biden-Harris ticket prevail.

This week the RNC has their turn. While the DNC tried to hide its disdain for the Second Amendment during the actual convention, we anticipate the RNC will present a stark contrast, as many speakers will likely be proud to proclaim their support. Because never has the contrast been starker for gun owners in a race for the American presidency. President Trump is an unabashed supporter of the right to keep and arms, and Biden wants to destroy the Second Amendment.

“President Trump is an unabashed supporter of the right to keep and arms.”

Too bad this statement is not the truth.

Except Trump isn’t “an unabashed supporter of the right to keep and bear arms”. He enacted more arms control than the previous two administrations combined.

@Oldvet…So are you still sucking off the orange infringer?

Tell me, is it cognitive dissonance that makes you support a gun control advocate or are you just another butter/Fudd who doesn’t give a shit about infringement as long as it’s a Republican doing it?

Trump unconstitutionally banned a firearm accessory, he signed gun control into law with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, he stated his support for the first assault weapons ban and said he would be open to another, he supports raising the age to purchase to 21, he supports banning silencers, he supports banning 3D printed guns, he supports the TAPS Act, and he supports red flag laws. All of this is easily verifiable with a simple search.

No, I pay attention to what politicians actually DO instead of only what they say. The fact that he has enacted and advocated for gun control and you still support him shows that you are either not paying attention or you choose to support infringement.

Although Trump did ban Bumpstocks, have you been listening in on his rallys? He DID hear all the folks that wrote him and filled out surveys saying what they really wanted him to hear…. DON’T touch our guns.and from here on out he won’t even try…..He may be an aggravating personality, but he is not stoopid.

I don’t think so, Oldvet, since I am in simpatico with Stag. In particular this statement of his:

No, I pay attention to what politicians actually DO instead of only what they say. The fact that he has enacted and advocated for gun control and you still support him shows that you are either not paying attention or you choose to support infringement.”

@Roy…I would suggest you haven’t been paying attention since the backlash Trump got after the bump stock thing . He has been supporting the 2A since . I think he got his eyes opened towards latreen as well . He specifically made a point to stand behind protecting the 2A in his state of the union address .

So, lets recap: I am the one that was not, have not, and am not paying attention. That is some serious comedy material right there. Well, what would the world be without clowns.

What has he infringed since the back lash he got from the bump stock . I’ll give you something else to think about . If the dems take the senate aoc will be running the show , because shumer is up for reelection. He will be so afraid of aoc getting him primaried he will jump to her want’s . On top of that if biden should win there will be no stopping the radical’s who are even left of sanders , and no way to fight them except physically .

Let me give you some more to think about . shumer is afraid of aoc but no matter what he does she primaries him any way because she wants his job . Thats short sighted on her part . If biden wins harris becomes POTUS . RGB retires or dies. steven breyer retires neither matters because harris ignores SCOTUS as andrew jackson did . (Forcing Native Americans off of their land and thus the trail of tears) . Research it . harris controls Military , FBI ,CIA ,IRS, DHS,and is already in bed with antifa . Thus she controls power… Read more »

Even IF your comment were true – and it absolutely is not! – Trump is orders of magnitude better than the socialist/Democrat alternative!
