Democrats aren’t even hiding the fact they want to take your guns.
They’re using the horrific shooting in Uvalde, Texas to advance gun control legislation.
And one gun-grabbing Democrat put forward an insane proposal that will have you seeing red.
Democrats can’t come out and say they want to throw out the Second Amendment and confiscate guns – although some honest ones do – they have to systematically chip away at gun rights instead.
Now they’re trying to go after guns with a new tax.
Virginia Congressman Don Beyer wants to put a 1,000% tax on AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles, which is truly insane.
Beyer said, “Congress must act to prevent mass shootings. I’m writing a bill to restrict the flow of weapons of war into American communities – including AR-15s and high capacity magazines – that could bypass the filibuster and pass with just 50 votes in the Senate.”
The “weapons of war” rhetoric is one of the Democrats’ dumbest inventions.
Any firearm is a weapon of war, and military rifles have burst fire and automatic capabilities that retail rifles do not have.
CBS News reported that “because the bill would be a revenue measure, it could be introduced through the reconciliation process, which would only require approval from 50 senators, instead of the 60 votes needed to pass most legislation. Only ‘a simple majority’ would be required to get the bill passed.”
Now Democrats might actually try to ram through this asinine proposal before they lose control of Congress in the Midterms.
As is the case with many proposals that come from the Democrat establishment, because bad people exist, good people must give up more and more of their rights.
Whether it’s the First Amendment or the Second Amendment, leftists want to chip away at your freedoms.
Free speech has become “problematic” because of “hate speech” and “disinformation” – gun rights are allegedly a “legal fiction” and they must be curbed in order to stop statistically rare mass shootings.
Beyer isn’t the only politician calling for radical gun control.
Democratic Socialist Congressman Mondaire Jones said on the House floor, “You will not stop us from advancing the Protecting Our Kids Act today. You will not stop us from passing it in the House next week and you will not stop us. If the filibuster obstructs us, we will abolish it. If the Supreme Court objects, we will expand it. And we will not rest until we have taken weapons of war out of circulation in our communities. Each and every day, we will do whatever it takes to end gun violence, whatever it takes.”
Democrats are laser-focused on rolling back gun rights.
They couldn’t be any clearer.
