In the recent debate among the Democratic Primary candidates
Beto O”Rourke made clear his intentions concerning gun control, intentions I
believe that reflect the Democrat Party as a whole. He is the one candidate
that has made it abundantly clear that if allowed he will confiscate guns.
Maybe the others haven’t explicitly expressed this opinion, but we can be sure
that behind closed doors they all feel the same way. O’Rourke only mentioned
AR-15s and AK-47s but you can be sure that this would only be the first step in
the long road to disarming the American public.
I don’t believe that gun confiscation will work quite the way
O’Rourke would like it to happen, it will take place in small increments. First
will be national Red Flag Laws, laws that are a violation of the first, second,
fourth, fifth and sixth amendments. These types of laws which unfortunately seem
to be supported by politicians on both sides of the aisle as well as President Trump
will do nothing to deter mass shootings. Even if they were somewhat effective
in stopping this type of crime it still violates our Constitution.
After red flag legislation is passed and I do fear that within the next year we will see some form of these laws taking effect on a national level, the next step will be universal background checks which in turn will lead to national gun registration.
Once there is a national data base for registering guns, confiscation then becomes very easy. Once the guns are out of the hands of the citizens, tyranny begins. One only must look at what has happened over the last century. In Eastern Europe the Soviet Union and their satellite states of Hungary, Bulgaria and East Germany fell to the hands of totalitarianism once their citizens were disarmed. Hitler’s Germany disarmed the Jews which resulted in over six million deaths. More recently and closer to home we have Castro’s Cuba were most of the citizens were disarmed after the revolution and of course there is modern day Venezuela whose citizens lost the chance to defend themselves and are now starving under the socialist government.
Our Second Amendment was written into the Bill of Rights for
a reason and that reason was not to support our right to hunt but to protect us
from tyranny. Rest assured that the politicians that support “gun control” have
one concern and one concern only. They want a population that cannot resist
whatever plans they may have for our future.
Anyone who has been paying attention to the Democrat Party’s 2020 platform and watched the debates must be wondering if we are entering that generation in which we lose our freedom. Listening to the different candidates it is hard to tell which one is the farthest to the left. We are being promised free healthcare, increased social security benefits, thousand dollar a month living stipends, a pristine environment, free higher education, unlimited immigration and security from those people who would perpetrate evil with assault weapons. The only thing we must do as citizens is give up more of our God given rights as well as more of our hard-earned money.
Upon visiting numerous Democrat Presidential primary websites I have come to the conclusion that if anyone of these candidates were to be elected and if their party takes control of both houses of congress, we will be part of that generation that loses the rest of our freedoms. But, if you are to believe the propaganda that they publish on their campaign sites it will be well worth it because we will be living in a perfect world where everything will be given to us and according to Elizabeth Warren gun violence will be reduced by 80%. Who wouldn’t mind giving up their freedom for both financial and physical security, i.e. socialism?
I am hoping the answer to that question is most freedom loving people. We must only look at other countries that have followed this path that the Democrats want us to go down and see where they have ended up. This type of socialist agenda has never worked in the past and will not work now. America is on the verge of bankruptcy as it is without adding trillions of dollars of debt to an already overburdened economy. Unfortunately, because of our public education system many of the current generation believe that this failed system will somehow be the answer to all our country’s ills. This is what happens when the liberals from the sixties are allowed to take over our education system, Karl Marx would be proud.
I believe that these Democrats know exactly what they are doing and where they plan on taking this country. Because of this they know they need to disarm the public. At some point the people will wake up to what is being done to them, just look at the unrest in Venezuela. Therefore most if not all candidates have talked about gun reform/confiscation. It is not about safety for the citizens but about safety for those who wish to rule us. After all it is all about the power.
