For decades now — but especially the last eight years — liberals, Democrats, and progressives have been telling us that anyone who even thinks about the possibility of government tyranny is a dangerous insurrectionist and a proto-terrorist. No one needs a so-called assault weapon (a.k.a., a “weapon of war on our streets”). No one needs an ammunition magazine that holds more than ten rounds. Everyone should register the firearms they own and clear all gun sales with the government. Ammo purchases, too!
It was all fun and games for the left, who worked tirelessly to disarm law-abiding Americans, dictating what firearms we “need” and don’t need. Fun and games, that is, until they saw the words “President-Elect Donald Trump” scroll across the bottom of their screens early Wednesday morning.
Suddenly Dems and other left-leaning Americans understand the concept of government tyranny. Suddenly, more than a few Democrats grok what the right to keep and bear arms is all about. This epiphany has them wanting honest-to-God protection from “the enemy inside the gates,” and they want it in ballistic form.
I’m not saying that they shouldn’t have it. Rather, I’m saying welcome to our world.
Those who see Donald Trump as a racist, misogynistic fascist now know what it’s like to feel their freedom threatened. They know how we felt every time President Obama took to the bully pulpit to promote gun control and rollbacks of the right to keep and bear arms. But it took the election of Donald Trump, possibly the most hated man to be CINC, for anti-gunners to cherish their gun rights.
Now will America’s left support firearms freedom? For you, no. For them, of course! If the [former] anti-gunners didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any at all.
