If there’s one thing that Democrats love in America, it’s big government. Whenever an issue of any magnitude presents itself, the left-wing solution inevitably involves bringing government into the equation. What the Democrat Party fails to realize is that government is the problem, not the solution. Furthermore, leftists have, on multiple occasions, demonstrated their willingness to weaponize the government as a tool to carry out their political agendas.
Far too often, lawful Americans are on the receiving end of Democrats’ poor policies. Americans are seeing this during the 2020 presidential election as various left-wing candidates call for unconstitutional gun grabs; gun grabs have a documented track record of penalizing lawful gun owners, not criminals.
Fox News reports that 2020 Democrat Joe Biden is now calling for gun-owning Americans to either sell their “assault-style” weapons to the government or register their weapons with the government. Of course, history has proven that gun registration is merely a prerequisite to confiscation of guns, but more on that later.
Why Does Biden Want the Government to Penalize Gun Owners?
At the heart of all left-wing gun control proposals is a deeply flawed philosophy. Democrats truly believe that cracking down on Americans’ legal means to have and keep guns will stop criminals with no regard for the law. This logic is misguided and wrong, but it’s at the heart of Biden’s latest proposal.
Yesterday, the former vice president shared the extent of his gun grab plan with the country. Not only does Biden want Americans to either turn over or register their guns with the government, but he’s furthermore calling to disallow high capacity magazines, prohibit online gun sales, penalize gun manufacturers, and encourage “red flag” laws in states across the country.
The True Agenda of Gun Registrations
Gun registration is merely a pre-step to gun confiscation. Democrats know this and 2020 Democrat Beto O’Rourke said it best when he proudly declared, “hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47!” It’s not a coincidence that Biden now wants Americans to “register” the guns which O’Rourke proudly declared that the government will take from lawful Americans.
We’ve reached a point where the left-wing’s claims of “we’re not trying to take your guns” have been proven as irrevocably false. Penalizing lawful gun owners for the actions of rouge criminals does not save lives; it merely emboldens bad people who know that their targets will be defenseless thanks to the almighty government.
