We’ve reached the point where the far-left comes up with new things to declare racist virtually every day.
But, of course, so far they’ve merely used calling everything racist as a political weapon to advance their agenda.
That is apparently changing, though, as the far-left recently decided that this state’s gun laws are racist.
States that have been run almost exclusively by Democrats for decades – states like California or Illinois, and cities like Chicago – all feature some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, yet still boast some of the nation’s highest crime rates.
And for years, Democrats’ answers to these simple facts have always been to institute more, even stricter gun laws.
However, all of a sudden, it seems as though the far-left in one state is beginning to come to the opinion that gun laws are racist, so they’re beginning to roll back some gun laws that they believe effect minorities the most.
A couple of weeks ago, a California State Assembly committee quietly passed the Anti-Racism Sentencing Reform Act by a 6-2 vote.
Essentially, the bill significantly softens sentences for people convicted of some firearms offenses, because the far-left politicians who supported the bill claim that laws against using firearms in crimes disproportionately effects minorities.
A “fact sheet” prepared by far-left staffers actually argued that imposing stiffer sentencing laws in crimes in which guns were used increased the incarceration rate, crowds prisons, and serves as “a legal monument to racism.”
“If a gun is used during a violent felony offense – such as a robbery – California’s ‘10-20-Life’ gun enhancement applies,” it said. “A 10-year enhancement is available for any use of a gun, which is increased to 20 years if the gun is discharged, and to 25-to-life if great bodily injury or death occurs.”
AB 1509, as the bill is known, would eliminate the use of California’s ‘10-20-Life’ gun enhancement almost altogether, and when gun enhancements are still used, it would be modified to a one, two, or three year enhancement.
25-year-old, far-left Democrat Assemblyman Alex Lee – who, by the way, was living with his mother when he won his seat last November, and describes himself as “the first Gen Z, youngest Asian American, and first bisexual state legislator in California history” – claimed that he co-sponsored the bill “to correct decades of harm done to communities of color.”
Obviously, the far-left is far more concerned about the well being of criminals than they are law-abiding citizens.
It’s rather ridiculous that they honestly believe letting criminals who use firearms to commit crimes out of jail sooner is some sort of answer to solving so-called “systemic racism.”
At the same time, you can’t help but be amused by the fact that the most adamant anti-gun rights politicians in America are now calling gun laws “racist,” and attempting to make them less strict.
Joe Biden is undoubtedly working to enact gun control during his time in office, but who knows, maybe the far-left will begin to believe gun control is racist before he can make it happen.
At the rate they’re going, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see it happen.
But, of course, as they’ve always done, the far-left will always put criminals ahead of law-abiding Americans.
