Make no mistake about it. Joe Biden is trying to cram four years of a presidency into the first 150 days. That’s because he’s been around long enough to know that a) next year nothing of any substance is going to get done because of the midterm elections and b) he is well aware that he’s going to lose the Senate (where it’s currently tied) and the House (where the current margin is only three votes). The latest assault is your guns.
Now, realize that Biden is starting with things that most people would say, “Yeah…I can live with that”. He’s going after “ghost guns”. Those are guns that are basically kits that people can buy, take home, and assemble. They typically don’t have registration numbers, so they are untraceable. He’s also pushing for more “Red Flag Laws” whereby states and municipalities are able to identify folks that probably aren’t sane enough to be carrying a deadly weapon around.
While most people would think these two Executive Orders are “reasonable”, they are missing what Biden said that I think is very very scary. He made the comment that “No amendment (Constitutional Amendment) is absolute.” And that is where he is dead wrong.
Are you telling me that you don’t have the right to a trial by jury of your peers? Are you saying you don’t have the right to worship as you please? Are you saying that you’re open to search and seizure any time the government wants to come in and grab anything, for any reason? These are all issues where Biden is wrong. And the Supreme Court is also backing the Second Amendment. You have the right to bear arms. Period. There’s nothing ambiguous or unclear about that sentence. And when Biden has the audacity to say that no amendment is absolute, he’s wrong.
If you think back to the Founding Fathers, they believed something entirely different from what today’s Democrats believe. They believed that your rights were unalienable. They were given to you, not by man, but by God. That meant that since only God can give you those rights, only God can take those rights away. Today’s Democrats think much differently. They believe that man dishes out rights like a cafeteria lady at lunch time dishes out jello. They believe that if they just scream loud enough, you can get more rights. Rights like healthcare, or housing, or universal income, or open borders, or the right for anyone and everyone to vote regardless if they are a citizen. That flies in the face of the Constitution and is wrong.
And Biden is wrong.
What Biden needs to understand is that mental health is the issue here. It’s not guns. Car accidents kill more people every year in this country than gun deaths. But do you see anyone (yet) wanting to take your car away? Alcohol kills more people than guns. Are they trying to shut down the distilleries and breweries? Yeah, I know…they tired that. It didn’t work out too well, did it?
Democrats love to do things incrementally. Look at the seat belt laws. They started back in the early 1960’s by introducing seat belts as a safety device in cars. No one wore them because they were confining. So, they said, OK…you need to have kids wear them. No one bitched about that because we all want kids to be safe. Then it was everyone wears them, but we won’t ticket you just for not wearing a seat belt. And now? Now they can stop you and ticket you for just that very infraction.
If Democrats want the solution to guns, I have it for them. Here’s the deal. You want to take our guns, take our guns with one caveat. If there is ONE mass shooting or drive by shooting after you do, anywhere in the country, you will NEVER attempt to take our guns from us again, and you must return all of the guns to their rightful owners. See, criminals don’t follow laws. It’s kinda the whole reason they’re criminals. And if you pass a law saying it’s illegal to own a gun, then criminals are going to break that law. It’s currently illegal to shoot someone…in most cases. But does that stop anyone from killing people? Just this week we had two mass shootings in one day, one involving a former NFL player who killed himself and the other a worker who shot up his former place of employment. Did they break any laws? What makes Democrats feel that if they take away your guns, that all of the gun violence is going to stop? It’s not.
Pure and simple. Joe Biden is a bumbling idiot that is trying to pull the country as far to the left as he can as quickly as he can. He knows the clock is ticking. If he doesn’t get it done by November of this year, he won’t get it done at all. It’s just that simple.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
