First billionaire Tom Steyer quit on Saturday after spending over $252 million on his lackluster campaign for the Democrat nomination for President in 2020. Then the failed former mayor of some Midwestern town saddled with violent crime and poor economic prospects called it quits Sunday evening. And now Amy Klobuchar has ended her run for the nomination and announced that she will endorse creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

Candidates usually wait until after decisive election results to end their campaigns. But not this year. Super Tuesday with 14 states on the line is still a day away.
Why it’s almost as if something big happened behind the scenes in recent days to bring cause them all to throw in the towel. Meanwhile, once again President Trump might actually know something.
Pete Buttigieg is OUT. All of his SuperTuesday votes will go to Sleepy Joe Biden. Great timing. This is the REAL beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play – NO NOMINATION, AGAIN!

Will gun owners cry much about these radical candidates ending their hapless campaigns? Not likely. All of the aforementioned Democrats campaigned vigorously on their support of racist, classist, sexist gun control laws.
Billionaire Tom Steyer called for gun bans and firearm owner licensing.
Steyer’s plan calls for instituting universal background checks, enacting “red flag” laws, closing several gun sale “loopholes,” banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and establishing mandatory waiting periods for the delivery of guns following their purchase.
Steyer would push for creating a gun licensing system, national assault weapons registries, and voluntary buyback programs for all firearms — not just assault weapons.
Cook County Illinois has pretty much all of those gun control measures in place. Clearly those gun control schemes have worked well to prevent violent crime in Chicago, no? And They’ve kept the minorities who live there safe, right?
Amy Klobuchar’s campaign offered a similar series of proposals, as reported in Medium. Clearly Klobuchar doesn’t care much for promoting gun ownership for women to combat physical violence and sexual assaults.
Instead, she would rather make gun ownership as difficult as possible, especially for undesirables. Just as her predecessors did with poll taxes to make voting difficult, especially for poor minorities.
Meanwhile, failed former Mayor Pete Buttigieg demanded most of those same gun control initiatives. Obviously, Mayor Pete doesn’t know that armed gays don’t get bashed. Or maybe attacks on the LGBT community take a back seat to the far larger priority of civilian disarmament.
At the same time, none of these candidates’ proposals would stop criminals from victimizing law-abiding members of society. They know that gun control laws only impact the little people, but their platforms suggest that they don’t care as they campaign behind protective details of armed good guys.
So now, the Democrats are left with three men in the race, all significantly older than President Trump. Oh, and a 1/1024th native American who likely won’t even win her own state’s primary.
The establishment Democrats really seem to want Joe Biden to come out on top, but after what appear to be looming Super Tuesday losses, his campaign funding will likely dry up. That will probably cement his effort at becoming a three-time Presidential loser.
At that point, in an effort to deny Comrade Bernie the nomination, look for desperate establishment Dems to turn to rabidly anti-gun (and fantastically wealthy) Mini-Mike Bloomberg, who takes a back seat to no one in his antipathy to Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

Time will tell how well Plan C works out for them.
In the meantime, gun owners shouldn’t be cocky.
