All right, I don’t actually have a gun. I am fortunate enough to live in a town where a certain amount of domestic tranquility prevails. But I’m very, very glad that millions of my fellow law-abiding citizens do have guns.
Liberals have long dreamed of disarming the American people and removing the Second Amendment as an obstacle. It seems they have a plan for doing it.
A few days ago the Deerfield, Illinois, Village Council (“village”? with 18,000 people in it?) banned “assault weapons,” and anyone who still owns one past the deadline is to be fined $200 to $1,000 a day (https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/05/us/deerfield-illinois-assault-weapon-ban-trnd/index.html). The term “assault weapon” is very loosely defined,
A lawsuit has already been filed.
To justify the ban, the council cited several “mass shootings”–by persons who disobeyed many gun laws that were already on the books. As Mr. Robinson challenged the city council in Greensboro, NC, “Do you think the Crips and Bloods [criminal gangs] on the other side of town are gonna give up their guns? They’re still gonna break into my house and shoot me.”
Wonderful, wonderful. The same persons who corrupted and debased our culture now demand the authority to “save” it. No, Democrats. You can’t have that authority. You want to be our jailers.
But this is how they’re going to do it–so it seems, at least. Go from town to town, banning gun ownership on the local level. Stay under the radar, and if there’s resistance in one town, pull back and try again in another. They hope no one will catch on to this until it’s too late.
Private gun ownership is a symbol of freedom: Americans are citizens, not subjects. Sovereignty in the United States of America resides with her people, not her government.
Liberals hate that.
