It only took about a month, but here he comes. Slow Joe is coming for our guns. Of course, you have the left saying that it won’t be so bad, he is just going to put some “common sense” measures into gun ownership that haven’t been there before. I’m sorry, but with this topic, the left doesn’t have any common sense.
What the left doesn’t realize, or refuses to understand, is that right now, more guns are on the street than people in the country. If I am law abiding gun owner and I do everything that the government tells me to already, why are you going to make my life more difficult. The Second Amendment says nothing about the number of firearms that a person can own. Since no one accurately tell us what an “assault rifle” is, maybe they should stick with sending out COVID checks. And just for the record, the “AR” in AR-15, does not mean assault rifle. I saw that on a liberal station the other day and I couldn’t help but laugh.
Making guns more difficult to purchase does not make us safer, it just tightens a governmental noose around our neck with the hopes that we will have to jump through so many hoops to buy, let’s say, a shotgun, that we will give up.
Does anyone out there honestly believe that criminals actually go to a sporting goods store, wait in line, show their ID and wait for the governments background check? If you do, you are dumber than I thought. Many states already have laws in place that help guarantee our safety. I won’t divulge the number of weapons that I have, but suffice it to say that my house will be the wrong one to pick to rob on a cold snowy night. I had background checks done in every case and of course passed.
If Slow Joe signs into law that gun manufacturers can be held responsible for gun deaths, don’t we owe it to the automobile industry to do the same? The same logic applies. The car and the gun couldn’t and didn’t act on their own, an actual human being had to be operating both of them to either get in the accident or fire the weapon. My weapons have been stored and to my surprise when they have been left alone, they have never shot anyone. I am perplexed by this.
Stricter gun laws are just more ridiculous. You turn perfectly law abiding citizens into potential criminals. If you really want to do some good, go back to the pat and frisk days where weapons were taken off the streets and out of the hands of criminals. Offer some gun safety programs for new gun owners so we don’t have incidents like those idiots who confronted the terrorists of ANTIFA and BLM and of course the morons in the NFAC who found that it was easier to shoot themselves because they had no idea how to properly use a firearm.
Now, do we have people who should not have to go through gun training (unless they want a refresher)? Yes. Law enforcement, prior military and those who can demonstrate that they know how to safely operate a firearm.
Every new gun owner has the right to own a firearm, but with that right comes the responsibility to make sure they know how to use it.
But as we well know, the left will stop at nothing because they have proven that they do not believe in the constitution. They have already started stripping folks on the right of their first amendment rights, why would they stop there?
