The Democrats gun secret is out. It had long been a rumor, or even a conspiracy theory. Now, it’s an open conversation piece. Democrats are after guns. Long a staple of American society, now guns are an item that makes you guilty of murder for simply owning one.
How did the discussion become main stream? Well, It started with Democrats classifying any semi-automatic rifle as a “weapon of war” or an assault rifle. After any shooting, Democrats quickly called any firearm an evil thing. In doing so, they discounted the evil of the person who performed the shooting.
Others candidates came out with gun plans. For example, Cory Booker released a plan for a national gun license. Joe Biden said that he believed the assault weapons ban worked. This continued the gradual progression that we all expected. Democrats were after gun rights of Americans.
Then enter Beto O’Rourke, who stated that if elected he would come take the guns of conservatives. O’Rourke made the statements during multiple Democratic debates and public appearances. Openly calling for gun confiscation was exactly what Republicans expected from the left. Republicans have known this was the end game all along, yet this is the first time it was openly discussed as it was.
The only problem is that Beto O’Rourke dropped out of the Presidential race. So who will step up and take his place? Enter the media! Monday, on The View, Joy Behar said that candidates should not openly call for gun confiscation. She proposed that candidates simply take the guns after being elected.
In her comments, Behar suggested that politicians should lie about their plans for America. She stated that Democrats should simply not tell what their plans were and resort to simply doing them after elected. In the end, Democrats want to remove your ability to defend yourself. This is especially concerning after reports of a mother who defended her family with an AR-15 rifle.
Estimates suggest that 37% of American homes have a firearm in them. Obviously, this is not a count of all gun owners as many gun owners want to remain private. It is difficult to determine how many gun owners there are because of this very fact. According to census data, there were 138.5 million housing units in 2018. If you believe 37% is an accurate #, this would equate to just over 51.2 million gun owners. In other words, this is over 15% of the US population.
Democrats will struggle to attempt a gun confiscation plan. Gun owners will not willingly turn over their firearms. So Democrats would have to take them by force. This is exactly what Democrats have proposed over the past few years. Even though the second amendment guarantees your right to own a weapon, it’s clear the Democrats are coming after your guns.
