This year has been a challenge for everyone in this country. From the pandemic to the election, emotions been running high and will probably not improve for some time to come. One of the major indications of this is the exponential increase in gun sales since January.
Many people decided with the lockdown that being armed was better than not being able to protect yourself. As the election neared and it looked as though Biden may win, Americans began buying guns at an unprecedented rate.
Next to the 1st Amendment, the 2nd is equally as important if not more at this point in history. With several politicians on the left calling to make “lists” of the folks who supported Trump, it only seems logical to make sure that you are ready when they come knocking at your door. Of course I am in no way condoning the use of violence, but with the rioting we have seen and the lefts inability or unwillingness to put a stop to them, it is best to be prepared.
Both Biden and Harris have said that they want to severely curtail a citizens ability to buy and own weapons. The left has shown us time and again that they will not be happy until they confiscated every weapon we own and abolish the 2nd Amendment. We have to stand up to this assault on our liberties and fight for what is right.
Owning a weapon is a very personal decision to make and no one but the owner should be making it. Not some left wing politician who is trying to score points with their base. As I noted above, people make the decision to arm themselves for a variety of reasons. It could be because they live far enough outside of society that if they called the police in the event of an emergency, they may not make it there in time to stop a crime.
On the other hand, they may live in a high crime area where a weapon for protection is needed in order to not only feel safe, but to be safe. Once again, it is a decision that the potential gun owner should ne making, not a politician.
With owning a firearm comes great responsibility. If you are prior military or law enforcement, I know that I am confident in your ability to own a firearm in a responsible manner. If you are neither, you should be taking classes on how to effectively and responsibly handle a weapon.
A good example of this is this left wing militia group NFAC. I have seen videos of their “training” and they are very lucky that they have not killed anyone. However, I do believe that this will happen in time.
So my point is this-we have to make sure that we put a stop to any attempt by the left to take away our God given right to own a weapon. If you don’t like guns, don’t own one. The left has shown their true colors over the course of the last nine months, so I am 100% behind the late, great Charlton Heston when he said, “From my cold, dead hands.”
