Regardless of your opinion of the legitimacy of the most recent presidential election, it’s clear that Joe Biden will be the person leading this country for at least the next four years. If you are a person who champions their Second Amendment rights, and believes that all law-abiding Americans should be allowed to own guns for recreation and defense, you’re probably concerned. And if you’re not, you should be.
Mr. Biden, like so many others of his ilk, believes that guns are the root cause of many problems in this country. As a result, he is determined, like many liberals before him, to take away the rights of people just like you. Additionally, he also aims to develop Draconian punishments for those that don’t immediately fall in line with his proposed gun plans.
Ban on So–Called “Assault Weapons“
While no laws have been drafted yet, Biden campaigned on a gun policy that aims to ban “assault weapons”. What are assault weapons, you ask? Well, according to liberals, they are whatever they saw they are.
Don’t believe it? Under Biden’s proposed gun ban, certain types of shotguns, rifles, and pistols could all be made illegal, as would any magazine that holds more than ten bullets. If you currently own any of weapons included in this ban, you would be obligated to turn them over to the feds in exchange off a paltry sum of money if the law passes.
You also have the “privilege” of registering these weapons, which comes with a $200 fee. The gun registry is intended to make America safer, but it most likely will be used to identify so-called gun nuts and build cases against them. If you choose not to hand over your guns or register them, you may be faced with a $10,000 fine and up to ten years in prison.
The Left Just Don’t Get It
That is the liberal way: make unnecessary laws to punish those that don’t tow the imaginary line in the sand. What they don’t understand is that guns are so ingrained in American culture that they are practically one and the same. Gun owners are carrying on a rich tradition of self-reliance and freedom from authority. Guns are the way people make their living, feed their family, and protect loved ones from harm. Now Biden wants to punish you for exercising your rights as an American citizen.
The left also fails to understand that guns aren’t the problem, people are. The majority of gun crime involves handguns, which are mostly excluded from weapons bans. While mass shootings are horrendous, there are numerous cities throughout this nation where gun crime is a daily occurrence. Yet the left doesn’t address the causes or reasons behind the issues because they are too complex.
Instead, they focus on you, the law-abiding gun owner, who they believe they can intimidate and control. They make nonsense pronouncements that can be easily recognized as such by anyone with half a brain. They make claims about the types of weapons that are dangerous with no real knowledge of how these weapons work or why they’re used. Aren’t all weapons assault weapons, to some degree? Can’t a person do harm with a knife or baseball bat or even a vehicle if they were properly motivated?
Of course, they can. But liberals aren’t concerned with the facts. They only want to push through their political agenda.
It’s Time to Get Real, and Get Mad
As a gun-owner, it’s your duty to remain aware and informed. Now is definitely not the time to rest on your laurels and become complacent. There are big changes on the horizon, changes that affect you, your family, and your well-being. You must ready to take on the fight should it arrive at your door.
