The Duplicity of Gun Controllers Is in Full Array

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- There’s an interesting phenomenon occurring with those demanding gun control lately. They’ve abandoned pretenses of “common sense.” Now, it’s not gun control. It’s gun rights elimination.

President Joe Biden leads the gun control charade parade. The president chides gun owners for not supporting his gun control agenda while at the same time expanding his gun ban wish list.

President Biden spoke to the American public from The White House on June 2 to explain his desire to push for expanded gun control.

“The issue we face is one of conscience and common sense,” President Biden said following the tragic murders by a madman in Uvalde, Texas. “For so many of you at home, I want to be very clear: This is not about taking away anyone’s guns.  It’s about… not about vilifying… gun owners. In fact, we believe we should be treating responsible gun owners as an example of how every gun owner should behave. I respect the culture and the tradition and the concerns of lawful gun owners.”

The Real Joe

That statement, however, stands in stark contrast to what President Biden told a private group of Beverly Hills, Calif., Democratic donors just days later. He told a story of his Senate days pushing gun control measures and gun owners confronting him on his radical agenda.

“They’d say, ‘God darn, Joe, what the hell are you doing taking my gun away?’” President Biden said according to a Breitbart report. “And I said, ‘Let me ask you a question.’ I said, ‘How many — when you go deer hunting, how many deer are wearing Kevlar vests?’”

“‘By the way, if you need 30, 40, 60, up to 100 rounds to fire,’ I said, ‘you’re a danger to yourself, man,’” he continued.

That’s an interesting stand for the president, who admits to owning at least two shotguns and once absurdly told his wife to blindly fire two blasts into the dark if she ever feared someone illegally entering their property. It’s not unexpected though. This is the same president that lectures America on the Bill of Rights as if it were a laundry list of government-approved needs.

President Biden told Americans in a tweet, “No one needs an AR-15. Period.” He’s continuously called for a ban on standard capacity magazines. He tried to convince Americans that no one needs 9 mm handguns, calling those too “weapons of war.”

Hollywood Hypocrisy

Liberal antigun darling Michael Moore has never been shy about disclosing his animus toward lawful firearm ownership. These days, he’s dropped any equivocation and is calling for the Second Amendment to be repealed outright.

“We need to start a movement to repeal the Second Amendment and replace it with something that says it’s not about the right of somebody to own a gun, it’s the right of all of us to be protected from gun violence,” Moore said in his podcast, according to Fox News.

Instead of guns, Moore suggests getting a dog. For concealed carry options, there are always small breeds, one might imagine. It’s also wishful thinking by Moore that criminals will suddenly drop their illegally-obtained firearms. Law-abiding gun owners aren’t the problem, but criminal actors are, since they’re already ignoring laws and harbor no respect for life. Of course, there’s a path for Moore to achieve this. It only takes two-thirds of both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, or two-thirds of the states to agree to a Constitutional convention and that new amendment must be ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures or state conventions.

“I make no apologies for it because I understand the history of this country and I don’t think we should be afraid to say this. Repeal the Second Amendment,” Moore said. “I said it then and I’ll say it now and I’ll keep saying it and I want you to say it with me, repeal the Second Amendment. This sentence in our Constitution, it was written 235 years ago. Repeal the Second Amendment.” So was the First Amendment, but whatever.

At least Moore is honest, if not completely out of step with America. Criminals, assuredly, would love this idea.

Pro-2A Gun Control?

David Hogg, the front-man for March for Our Lives gun control, wrote in a Fox News op-ed a call-to-action for even NRA members to join in his gun-control demonstrations.

“I want to state unequivocally that I am not anti-gun. In fact, the movement I helped to start has been pro-Second Amendment from day one,” Hogg wrote.

That’s in direct contradiction with the demands from March for Our Lives, which include a national licensing and registry scheme, bans on so-called “assault weapons” or semiautomatic Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs), and standard capacity magazines. The March for Our Lives’ website attests that “there is a national mental health crisis,” yet Hogg was quoted telling U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) that, “Mental illness is a bulls–t talking point,” according to a Time report. That was on the same whirlwind Senate splash where he attempted to shame Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), accusing him of snubbing a meeting with Hogg because it would “trigger” the senator. The senator’s chief of staff caught him in the lie, pointing out they had a 2 p.m. meeting scheduled, which was canceled when it was clear Hogg was using the meeting to self-promote.

Hogg attempted an apology, citing a scheduling mistake.

The mistakes here aren’t schedules. They’re a matter of getting caught up in their own duplicity.

When your President is the very example of why the Founding Fathers used the words “Shall Not Be Infringed “, you should know that Our Freedoms are in Jeopardy! The very people the framers were worried about are now trying to strip us of the ability to protect the Freedoms they fought and died for.

At this point it is clear, they do not want a discussion, do not care about statistics, do not care about facts, do not care about the Constitution.

There is only four words left to say to them:

“No amendment is absolute” says Joe. Take the 13th amendment for example…

Tionico

quote:”no one needs 9 mm handguns, calling those too “weapons of war.”” well, it is true, the Nine Parabellum was designed, well, as the latin name says, for war”. John Moses, Herr Luger, and many others have taken that round and made some fine instruments of war that use them. They ARE designed for war. Which is PRECISEL WHY we NEED THEM today, on our own hips as we go about our daily business. Everywhere. After all, we must never forget that “the security of a FREE state” requires that THE PEOPLE of that state are well trained in the keeping… Read more »

Just think if the JEWS had the weapons needed in WWII they might have defended themselves from the Nazis of there days….we need our 300 million guns in America to defend our new Nazis of our time call Biden

Just think, what if hitler had been killed in 1937?

Desert Rat

Some of the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto did take guns off of the Germans they killed and tied up the German army for a long time. Imagine what the hunters in this country could do with their scoped rifles against our domestic enemies most of whom don’t know whether to stand up or sit down to go pee.

These POLITICIANS MUST pass the Constitutional Carry NATIONWIDE. Along WITH Constitutional Carry, Qualified IMMUNITY must be included for an American Citizen that is FORCED to DEFEND themselves or another INNOCENT American(s).

Nothing new here. Demonrats deceive and lie. It’s the standard mode of operation. Anyone who supports killing a defenseless child in the womb is a twisted bleep bleep, to put it lightly, person. Anyone who thinks we don’t need law enforcement is a dumb jackASS and has no perception of what the world is really like and anyone who thinks that we should not have firearms for a safer Merica obviously has no common sense. The only commons sense gun law that should be in existence is that there are no laws against fully auto, magazine size, suppressors, short barreled… Read more »

IT WAS JOHN F KENNEDY BEHIND THE UN DISARMAMENT PROGRAM

https://jbs.org/un-timeline/3-stage-disarmament-program/

3 STAGE “DISARMAMENT” PROGRAM
President John F. Kennedy presents the UN General Assembly with a three-stage “disarmament” program that would abolish “all armies and all weapons except those needed for internal order and a new United Nations Peace Force.” Kennedy’s proposal is published with more detail by the State Department in a publication entitled Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World (State Department Publication 7277).

musicman44mag

Wow, if what you say is true, I totally understand why the government killed him.

Tionico

close… da gummitoffed JFK because he would not play their version of ball with respect to VietNam. Remember, Johnson was a rabid war hwk in that regard. Seems from the evidence I’ve read (which is a huge amount of information) that wiley ol’ LBJ was at least a key part of the plot to “remove” JFK then blame it on a “convenient” lone shooter (strange, when trounds are known to have been fired from at least two, and almost certainly three, different directions at almost the same time. The smoke and mirrors continue to thicken……..

incorrigible

Plus, he betrayed the Cubans at the Bay of Pigs, by canceling their support at the last minute. Sadly, his death only got us someone worse! The same will happen if Biden is removed, by whatever means.

The UN is the drivng force behind US civilian disarmament. See the links below. These Communists will do anything and everything to achieve this goal, including false flag attacks on schools and shopping centers and churches. The US Department of State is heavily involved also.

The treasonous Obama/Holder “Fast and Furious” operation was
fabricated to get American sourced firearms involved in international
(Mexico) strife. This, to enter into the UN small arms treaty, and to surrender American sovereign nation status while disarming American citizens. That’s the conclusion I reached. When Obama covered Holder’s
refusal to answer a congressional subpoena, using “Executive Privilege”,
that act alone made Obama complicit to treason. There actually is a structured protocol for the utilization of Executive privilege (though you wouldn’t know it nowadays). And we got crickets from the corrupted government that usually does not serve American citizens.

FYI, Charlie Smith who made “Are Guns To Blame” passed on 6/9/22

Given the SCOTUS ruling in US v Cruikshank

“6. The right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The Second Amendments means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress, and has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the National Government.”

just exactly what do they think repealing the Second Amendment would accomplish?

I would give my life fortune if every kid in America was required to learn those words verbatim.

Russn8r

Nice, but Cruikshank is dated, since 2A’s now incorporated, right?

Wild Bill

No, the Incorporation doctrine extends the limitation on governmental power (shall not be infringed) to the states. That limitation comes from the Constitution. The limit on government is a man made construct.
The judge in Cruikshank states in no uncertain terms that our Rights are not dependent on the Constitution or any other document written by men.
The truth that our natural Rights come from something far greater than government or even the Constitution is far more powerful than a mere limitation on government.

Tionico

which is WHY they are now franticallyworking on making we Yanks hate guns so we’ll volunterily give them up. Fat chance. They are trying to make “common sense” and “reason” and, of course, fear, into trump cards they can play at will.
What they do not recall is that the real trump card is that the right is given by the God who made us. He gave us breath in our lungs, AND the right to protect ourselves from anything that threatens that.

Wild Bill

Yes, if the marxist democrats can get the population to believe that Rights come from human authors, then human authors can diminish or remove Rights.
But if Rights come from a greater author, then human authors are powerless to diminish or remove our Rights!

Coelacanth

Since the Godless Marxists don’t understand or affirm Natural Rights, there is nothing there to diminish.

Doc

It is too bad that God has been removed publically by those who seek to control us. Of course it was to be expected, as that is where our authority naturally comes from. I truly never thought I would see the day where the public display of sin, and its support would be such a daily occurrence. There is not a t.v.show that has been created in the last couple of years that does not promote same sex marriage, the destruction of the family, and the introduction of multi-gendered individuals (to mention only three). I confess, I had my eyes… Read more »

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;…” There’s a reason for those words. Your beliefs are no more and no less valid than anyone else’s irrespective of their religious fervor or degree of skepticism. Or more crudely: one man’s sin is another man’s pleasure and it’s not up to you to render judgement.

On the other hand I don’t like being lectured to or having newly conceived cultural norms shoved down my throat so other than some news, my favorite TV channel is “Oh”. That’s Oh for OFF.

Wild Bill

Yes, the whole “separation of church and state” fallacy was created by Hugo Black, who was seeking a way to harm the Catholic Church. The phrase came from an off hand comment in only one letter (of all his letters to people and groups) from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Assocciation, and Hugo Black used it as authority in Everson v. Board of Education of Ewing Township to support his attempt to damage the Catholic Church. Separation of church and state is not in the Constitution, any state Constitution or in the American legal tradition, at any level. Separation… Read more »

You must know I was referring to the Supreme Court “officially” incorporating it.

Natural Rights are protected for now, but what about a majority SCOTUS that doesn’t believe in Natural Rights as the recently confirmed justice stated in questioning? Since the Constitution is all about Natural Rights, shouldn’t this (apparent) enemy be impeached before she sits on the bench? Asking for a friend.

Wild Bill

Our elected representatives in the Senate are supposed to screen those out. So our part is to elect the appropriate Senators.
Justices sit for a term of good behavior, so … after Senate confirmation, new Justices have to take their seat and we would have to watch for bad behavior.
If their behavior were bad, the impeachment process is the same as usual … impeachment charges brought by the House, and trial in the Senate. If guilty removal.
