You used to have to catch Democrat candidates on a hidden camera, speaking in “Pig Latin,” to get them to admit their real aspirations toward the Second Amendment. “We can’t talk about the EAL-RAY AN-PLAY to confiscate the UNS-GAY before the election.”
But those days are gone! The Democrats running for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination have moved so far to the left that they are letting their “inner Stalins” out. This is good news and bad news.
It’s good news because everyday Americans can now see just how radical, extremist and anti-freedom the Democrat Party has always been. The bad news is that there will be so many foreign nationals and illegal aliens voting in Texas in 2020 that we could end up with one of these loons in the White House. Forget CoCo Puffs – these guys are “Coo-Coo for Confiscation!”
Here’s what you need to know about the circus freaks who would like to be your next president. These answers were derived from surveys where the gun-grabbers were asked direct questions on gun issues by multiple newspapers:
“Assault” Weapons Ban: Only one of the Democrat candidates running in 2020 opposes an “assault” weapons ban: Long-shot Andrew Yang. Every other candidate has pledged to push a full ban on semi-automatic weapons – not just rifles, but also pistols. Andrew Yang is calling for semi-automatic rifles to be registered (of course) and supports a buyback program, but not a ban.
Universal Background Checks: Every single Democrat running for president wants to require a background check for every gun sale, including private sales between individuals. You wouldn’t be able to sell a gun to your neighbor or your nephew without first playing “Mother-May-I” with Big Brother.
Licensing All Gun Buyers: Under this plan, you would need to purchase a license from the federal government before you can even buy a gun. Hooray! Permission-based rights! Obviously, this would need to be a two-part law because Congress would first have to abolish the law against creating a federal gun registry before they can require pre-purchase licensure.
All these candidates support federal licensure for gun purchases: Booker, Buttigieg, Harris, Hickenlooper, Inslee, Sanders, Swalwell, Pocahontas, Williamson and Yang. Kirsten Gillibrand gave a creepy answer in which she only suggested that she has an “even better idea.” Beto O’Rourke was too confused by the question to give a straight answer. Bennett and Biden said they don’t support federal licensing.
Red Flag Protection Orders: Ugh, this thing again. This is the idea that total strangers or vindictive ex-spouses can declare you “dangerous” and then a SWAT team knocks on your door at 4 a.m. to confiscate your guns. Any guesses how the 2020 Democrats feel about “Red Flag” protection orders? Universal support, across the board.
Prosecuting or Suing Gun Manufacturers: Thanks to a law passed by Congress in 2005, liberals are not allowed to carry out the insane act of suing or prosecuting gun makers every time some gangbanger in Chicago shoots up a playground. All of the 2020 Democrats who answered this survey question say they support suing or prosecuting gun manufacturers for crimes committed by criminals. Candidates Bullock, Castro, De Blasio, Gabbard and O’Rourke did not answer the question.
New Gun Regulations: This ultra-liberal idea would give the Consumer Product Safety Commission regulatory authority over the gun industry. Because you can never have too many regulations! There’s a fifty-fifty split among the 2020 candidates on this issue: Half of them support it and the other half are still thinking about it and will get back to Americans later.
Federal Funds to “Study” Gun Violence: As to whether taxpayer funds should be wasted by having the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “study” gun violence, the 2020 candidates are universally in support.
Executive Order Gun Control, i.e., the “Obama Special:” Will they use their magic Oval Office pen and phone to enact new unconstitutional gun restrictions? Corey Booker is absolutely enthusiastic about this idea. “Starting on day one,” he slobbered.
Bennett, Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Hickenlooper, Klobuchar, Sanders, Warren and Williamson all promise to use Executive orders to kill gun rights. Bullock said “No,” Delaney said, “Maybe” and the rest of the entire crop didn’t give an answer.
I know everybody in the gun community is mad at Trump about bump stocks, but when you see the laundry list of attacks on the Second Amendment that all of his opponents are offering, is there really any other choice for Second Amendment supporters in 2020?
