The following paraphrased quote is trite, tired, hackneyed—whatever adjective that means, enough already! But, with the Biden administration’s gun-grabbers, it applies too well. Repeatedly doing something that fails but expecting different results is the definition of insanity.
What is Joe Biden suggesting as solutions to school shootings we haven’t already heard and hasn’t worked? It is insane to see heinous crimes committed, especially against children, and then not discuss rational solutions but politically exploit the tragedy.
CBS reported Biden’s call “for the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines to be reinstated.”
Tried that. Didn’t work.
Biden wants to increase from 18-to 21 the age to purchase semi-automatic rifles, “strengthen” background checks, “safe storage” laws, “red-flag” laws, and repeal liability immunity from gun manufacturers (and car manufacturers, right?).
These issues are more complex than gun-grabbers want Americans to believe. Biden paid lip service to a “serious youth mental health crisis in this country,” after supporting mental illness-inducing school closures and lockdowns.
According to Reuters, rather than simply issuing an executive order, gun-grabbers want Congress to pass anti-gun rights legislation. Observers do not expect a bill in the House to pass the Senate.
Charlie Kirk, at The Daybreak Daily, acknowledging Biden’s “incoherent ramblings,” contends, “The reason why we have the Second Amendment is to defend ourselves against tyranny.”
To bolster his tyranny argument, Kirk points out the government’s behavior under Biden:
“They try to put you on lists and then act on those lists, whether it be Covid surveillance, [or] moms and dads being classified as domestic terrorists.”
Ronald Reagan said, “As government expands, liberty contracts.” Something you used to decide, government now decides for you.
For now, the firearms illiterate Democrats don’t want certain people to own certain guns (leading to an eventual total gun ban and confiscation). Kirk asks, “What’s the criteria? Who decides it? Who’s in charge of it? Do you trust those people? Did the federal government response to Covid give you more trust to the government or less trust to the government?”
Recall the battle that began the American Revolution. The government was coming for the people’s guns. After all, it’s so much easier to govern unarmed people.
