Every senator and representative in Congress promised to be the voice of the people. The left, however, has forgotten that. They have their own secret agendas – including gun control that goes beyond what the second amendment would allow.
The left hate guns. They believe that every violent act is because of a gun, not because of the person that pulls the trigger. They feel that somehow if they can increase gun control, violence across the country will drop significantly. It’s a pipe dream.
Criminals don’t pay attention to the law. Murder is illegal, but that doesn’t stop the criminals from committing it. So, just because a gun suddenly becomes illegal doesn’t mean that it will do anything.
Dems throughout Capitol Hill may also want to look at the statistics. Gun ownership is up. There are more new gun owners than ever before. Why? Civil unrest. And Americans can thank Dems and the Dem-run cities for all of that.
It’s not just Americans on the right who are buying the guns, either. It’s Americans who are all across the political spectrum buying guns. They want the means to protect themselves.
Dems aren’t protecting citizens. They’d rather allow Black Lives Matter protesters to tear apart cities and commit violent acts than to shut it all down. It’s their right to protest. Hmmm. Well, shouldn’t every citizen have the right to be protected?
The Dems don’t care about protecting the citizens, though. It’s also why they’re so quick to demand that police departments be defunded.
So, the Dems want to defund the police, allow BLM protests to tear apart the cities, and let citizens go unprotected. Then, they also want to increase gun control so that no one can be protected or have the means to protect themselves.
No. It’s not going to happen. Pete Brownell of Brownells, Inc has said they’ve seen an “unbelievable demand” for guns in the past few months. Walk into any store that sells guns. Inventory is down. Bullets for existing guns are almost obsolete. The gun stores can’t keep it all in stock.
2020 has been a record year for gun sales. Democratic politicians that want to increase gun control aren’t listening to the constituents that they are supposed to be representing.
Listen up. People want to protect themselves. Especially if the Dem-run cities aren’t going to offer protection, people will take care of it on their own. It has nothing to do with guns offering violence.
It’s about taking care of the people who are going to commit violence no matter what the laws surrounding guns are. Those hell-bent on being violent will use baseball bats, Molotov cocktails, and any other weapon they can get their hands on.
Andreyah Garland is a single mom of three who lives in New York. She bought her first gun – a shotgun – in May as a way to protect herself and her family. She’s also applied for a pistol permit. Ammunition, however, she’s struggling to find.
Garland isn’t the only one buying a gun. And everyone seems to be citing the same reasons – the pandemic, social unrest, and a potentially contested election. There’s the fear that the election results will spark even more violence than what’s already being seen around the country.
The election of a Democratic president sparks fears in many as there is always the looming fear of more gun control legislation. While some experts say that gun ownership usually surges during an election year or when there are mass shootings. However, that surge is often those who are politically conservative and who already own several guns.
The newest surge of gun purchases is from first-time gun owners. And they’re not all politically conservative. They’re liberals who are fed up with the politics.
The left may want to take a look around. They may lose a lot of supporters if they want to push gun legislation. If they’re not going to step up and protect people, the people (those on the left and the right) are fully prepared to protect themselves.
