The Left Is Convinced Americans Won’t Fight For 2nd Amendment Rights
Once cowed at the thought of provoking Second Amendment supporters,
leftists will soon attempt to ban “assault weapons” (and much more) as
legislation offered by Dianne Feinstein makes its way to the Senate
floor. It seems that D.C. liberals have finally become convinced that
American gun owners are too cowardly, too lazy or too dependent upon the
generosity of Big Brother to fight for their Second Amendment rights.
During the past four years, the gun banning-Left have watched as
American buyers broke sales records in the purchase of semi-automatic
rifles. Opting for these and other powerful, efficient weapons, it is
estimated that some 100 million private citizens are now in possession
of over 300 million firearms. And these numbers continue to grow with
each passing month.
Yet it’s against this backdrop of America’s unprecedented
determination to assert the fundamental permanence of Second Amendment
guarantees that Diane Feinstein, Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama and
others will choose to implement gun bans, demand the federal
registration of firearms, and even legislate outright confiscation.
Maybe Democrats are confident that fallout from Sandy Hook will
provide the floor votes necessary to disarm the American people. But if
the Left is willing to risk picking this fight with millions of
American gun owners, it must also believe something far more
important—that Americans who have spent years arming themselves against
the ultimate expression of tyranny by their own government–the overthrow
of the Second Amendment– will choose to not fight when the time finally comes.
For decades, the Left have watched Americans simply “lie down” before
every imaginable outrage and legislative assault on our liberty. The
Constitution has been prostituted by power-hungry, America-hating
Marxists in Congress, on the federal bench and in the White House.
Elected officials have laughed when asked to provide Constitutional
authority for the passage of massively unpopular pieces of legislation.
Tax dollars are insolently manipulated to purchase votes, grease the
skids of questionable legislation, and add to the wealth of bureaucrats
and elected officials. And through it all, Americans are robbed of more
and more liberty as we do nothing but “vote ‘em in and cuss ‘em out”
every two years.
Liberals have come to depend upon the willingness of Americans to
subordinate their desire for liberty to the wishes and whims of the
political ruling class. The cowardly are rewarded for relenting while
those with the courage to question dictatorial authority and refuse to
submit are accused of domestic terrorism. And all who press their own
beliefs—or worse, those of the nations’ Founders– are met with ridicule
or intimidation in what was at one time a nation of free, thinking
In short, the Left has come to expect cowardice or disinterested
submission from a people trained for decades to accept as given that the
good intentions of their elected betters are sufficient to fulfill the
requirements of constitutional authority. And it’s a safe bet neither
Democrats nor RINO’s will expect anything different from the majority of
Americans this time around as Feinstein and Company legislate last
rites and a funeral for the Second Amendment.
We know what the Left believe. We’ll soon find out if they are right.
They are so dead wrong...it's laughable....real Americans will not let this happen
