The problem with modern liberalism is that the entirety of the modern liberal mindset rests upon a belief in the value of government. Statists like those found in the Democrat Party believe that government knows what is best.
Therefore, it is not at all surprising to discover that despite the fact that the majority of American reject gun control efforts and continuously make their viewpoints known, the left tirelessly crusades to enact unconstitutional reforms that few want.
Democrats are nothing if not relentless and in the fight to strip Americans of their civil rights, they are particularly zealous.
Democrat lawmakers have attempted to further anti-Second Amendment legislation continuously, but have gotten nowhere on a federal level. Now, a liberal senator who is on the short list for Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential pick has called for a renewed effort to hinder law-abiding Americans’ practical access to firearms by calling for magazine and ammunition control.
Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine spoke on Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” After host Chuck Todd asked if he was in favor of an “assault weapons” ban, Kaine replied,
“I have voted for it. But I think there’s a better way to go at the problem and that is limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips.”
“So you think an AR-15 should be sold,” Todd questioned. ”You don’t think there should be any limitations?”
“I have voted for it and I would likely vote for it again,” Kaine replied, “But here’s a practical problem that I think you’re aware of. As soon as you define what an assault weapon is, you can’t sell a weapon and here’s how we describe it, gun manufacturers just make one adjustment or two and say see, this isn’t subject to the limitation. Whereas if you say you can’t sell an ammunition clip or a magazine with more than 10 or 12 rounds–”
“So you believe ammunition is the way to go,” Todd interrupted.
“I really think that’s probably the way to tackle the problem more effectively,” Kaine clarified.
Yes, it is the gun manufacturers that are being sneaky… it’s not at all the tone-deaf liberal lawmakers who insist on mislabeling firearms and their components to fit their narrative…
The truly sneaky party here is the Democrat/media collaboration that furthers deliberately false and misleading talking point surrounding firearms.
The truly dastardly conmen are those who insist that they’re not looking to revoke our Second Amendment rights, but that they’re just trying to make it impossible to exercise said rights in any practical way.
The Second Amendment is a protection of not merely bolt-action hunting rifles, but a protection of ownership of whatever firearms one feels he or she needs to defend himself, his home, his family or his country.
We must be ever-vigilant and understand that the left will stop at nothing to achieve civilian disarmament. Be ready.
