“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Democrat Party Chairman Thomas Perez announced in a statement last Friday. “That is non-negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.” So . . .
Democrats are now, officially and completely, the pro-abortion party. And why not? Abortion is, according to the Supreme Court, a constitutionally protected right. So why, then, are Democrats against the clearly constitutionally protected enumerated right to keep and bear arms?
Don’t give me that “We support the Second Amendment, but…we favor common sense gun safety laws.” You can no more support the constitutional right to keep and bear arms and argue for gun control than you can be a little pregnant.
Truth be told, by eliminating the pro-gun as an acceptable position for their candidates, the Democrats are doing The People of the Gun a favor. They’re making supporting Republicans a no-brainer.
Or are they? It’s hard to keep Republicans’ feet to the proverbial fire on defending and extending firearms freedom when they know that they have the pro-gun vote in their pocket.
Still, that’s the way America rolls these days. We shall see whether or not the Republican controlled Congress and White House honor their pledge to enact The Hearing Protection and national reciprocity.
