The Democrats at Tuesday night’s debate (watch live link) fell all over themselves talking about how to take your guns. Yes, they want to take your guns away from you. As in mandatory confiscations. Putting modern sporting rifles into the National Firearms Act registry. Banning normal capacity magazines. Suing gun makers into bankruptcy. On and on.
We heard a lot of stories about dead folks supposedly killed by black rifles. Of course, in reality, more dead folks are killed by blunt force instruments and fists. And there was no mention of prohibited people wielding those guns or others. But why let facts get in the way of a good soundbite. Especially in lieu of commenting on the political corruption of the Biden family.
How bad was it? “If you’re not going door to door, it’s not really mandatory,” said Julian Castro.
Not a single one of the candidates came even close to defending Americans’ right to keep and bear arms. Not even close.
Instead, it was “I’m going to take on the NRA.” As if the National Rifle Association is killing people on the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, or any of these other rat-infested Democrat-run districts in America.
But that’s what passes for a mainstream position in the Democrat party in 2019.
