Having spent their first month in office dismantling America's fuel industry and energy independence and eviscerating the First Amendment, the Biden Administration is now turning to the Second Amendment. But did you expect anything less from a man who said he would put Beto "Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15" O'Rourke in charge of gun control? No wonder gun sales have gone through the roof since November (and they were already high, due to the riots and looting, another thing gun sellers can thank Democrats for.)

You can read about what Biden is planning to do here, but it's questionable whether it would make it past the Senate filibuster or the Supreme Court. The SCOTUS would also likely end up weighing in on any attempts to get around Congress and undermine the Second Amendment by executive order.

I've been writing about this issue for years now, so I know that anytime you question new gun laws, you're accused of wanting more people to DIE! So here are just a few of the problems with these laws, stripped of the overheated emotional rhetoric:

1. They violate the Second Amendment, and many, many Americans cherish that Amendment.

2. While gun control advocates constantly talk about banning "assault weapons" and "weapons of war," those are vague terms conjured up by people who know nothing about guns. An AR-15 isn't a "weapon of war," it's a hunting rifle with some features that make the unitiatied think it looks like it might be used by soldiers. An "assault weapon" is no more lethal than any other gun (in the wrong hands, isn't any gun an "assault weapon?"), it just has to have any of a list of traits that gun control activists find scary, even though some are purely cosmetic, or safety features (a barrel shield keeps you from burning your fingers on a hot barrel) or convenient (an adjustable stock allows people of different sizes, like a husband and wife, to share the same rifle at a target range without having to buy two of them.)

3. This is the most important, yet least mentioned fact of all: the left is constantly demanding more gun laws despite abundant evidence that the ones we already have either aren't working or aren't being enforced. They demand that authorities devote an incredible amount of time, hours and taxpayer money to tracking, checking and policing law-abiding gun owners who aren't the problem. But how many times have we seen a mass shooting and later learned that under current laws, the culprit already should never have been allowed to buy a weapon - but a form was misplaced, or a judge let them go, or the police never got around to investigating a complaint, etc. etc. etc.

In virtually every case, mass shootings stop when someone else with a gun, whether it's a cop or an armed citizen, arrives on the scene and starts shooting back.

Yet when it comes to gun laws, liberals have the same attitude that they have toward socialism: it's never, ever worked anywhere, ever...but maybe if we just try a little more of it, it will start working.

    I AM AGAINST GUN CONTROL!

    The proposed "Gun control" laws are not control of guns at all. They are designed to control the people from stopping government in its evil ways to control, and they know it.
    No matter what they conjure up, they are ignor'ing the ninth amendment, that the writers of the Constitution, needed to get the "Bill of Rights" passed. When James Madison, many of the other signers of the Constitution, as well as many anti-federalist, would not accept a bill of rights without.
    They knew ALL of the "rights of the people" cannot be listed, therefore, the ninth amendment. IT WAS NOT ADDED AS A FLUKE!!
    I would love to discuss this in a deeper depth, but wanted to show where the beginning of "government control" stemmed from.

    Beijing Biden will do everything in his power to remove guns from law abiding citizens, while providing medical and monetary benefits to illegals and even more of our tax dollars to other countries, especially to places where they have vowed to kill Americans.

    Gun control has never been about safety, nor even guns.....it's about "control".

    Biden is a left wing socialist's who has lost all common sense and will destroy America. Our forefathers must be rolling over in their graves . Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer need to be removed from office to save us.

    The second amendment was not only put in place so that individual citizens of the republic could protect their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but was also established so the elected would fear the people knowing that if tyranny became the status quo in governing, the citizen in a last step extreme measure could hold them accountable and reset the government, what the Democrats are attempting to do now is nothing different then the British did a few years before the Revolution, by using restriction of owning arms by the citizens in order to control over their lives like surfs. They do fear the people and want to govern without contest, why do you think there is now razor wire at the people house now.

    How is it they as a few can dictate what part of the Constitution must go ? We are not a nation of few, but of many. Why are we allowing them to keep doing the things their doing, I mean Biden is killing this Country more and more everyday and Congress is acting as if they have the power to rule with an iron fist. They claim the National Guard is there because of a threat of overthrow of power by the people, then stop trying to control the people and you won't have anything to worry about. Remember, you are but a title and nothing more.

    As always Mike, you've nailed it again. You're comment comparing the 2nd ammendment and socialism was spot on. Thank you!

    Want to see Law-Abiding People become criminals? Pass HR-127. Odds are that the VAST majority of gun owners will not register their guns. For someone who has been in an elected position for 48 years, it sure would seem that Biden would have learned something over those years about the Constitution. Seems he hasn't (IF it is really him pushing this and not just his handlers). It seems "odd" that the MSM keeps using the term "RULE" when they talk about the Leadership of the American People. Dictators "Rule", Presidents "Lead". Biden is being portrayed as a Dictator, and not a President, any time they press uses the term "Rule". I will not be ruled. I have no faith in our Government as it is now.

    Anything you use to hurt someone with is an assault weapon.

  • Cheryl Brinkley

    I will never understand why taking guns from law-abiding citizens will stop the killings. Democrats don't have any common sense when it comes to something like this. They never look at the criminal side and where those people are getting their weapons - certainly not legally. I am a 74 year old woman who has always had guns in the house for both hunting food, target practice, and protection at times. Did I say the Dems have no common sense on this issue? They have no common sense on ANY issue.

    Gun control will not stop crime. The criminals will always have guns. Does Biden actually think the criminals will suddenly start following his laws. No! It will only make the law abiding citizens sitting ducks with no way to defend themselves against the criminals.

  • Ken Schiller

    Biden and the left have lost their mind. I am tired of the left and the friken moron President trying to take our weapons. Do you think the criminals will register their weapons. Hell no, they will never do that. I literally hate the left and democraps. Why do these morons keep screwing law abiding citizens . Government needs to start calling out the blacks, they are killing each other. Not one damn word is said about them. That's 90+ of our problems. My gun has been secure for 60 yrs and never killed anyone like others like me. Get a life whackos. They get my blood boiling.

    All the men I know have legal guns. The family has past down guns. No one has ever shot anyone. And no gun has ever jumped up and shot anyone by itself either. So Beto couldn't sel his ideas, and dropped out. Should fit in great with the others who ended up being elected with no real support!!

    It would be a mistake to depend on the Supreme Court after the stabbing in the back that they delivered to the American people after the election.

  • Larry Newman

    They can't control us if we're armed. Do you want to stop mass shootings and deranged people with firearms? Re-open mental health institutions and state mental hospitals. They were phased out at the end of the 20th century, because of the stigma of having been a resident, even for one day. To have the deranged and mentally ill removed from society also removes democrat voters. They get that.

    Why do the Liberals always circle back on this subject when they should know it is a mute subject. If there is anything that’s makes Republicans stronger, it is repetitive presentation of this and it is so predictable. Sleepy Joe is so shallow minded all he can think of is the same ole agenda. Give it up and move on to more important subjects. There are so many gun owners in America, there is not a chance in hell of changing anything. He may think it’s the NRA but it is every American’s right to own guns. I’m not an NRA member and n Ver will be but have always owned guns. Look at states and countries that have some sort of gun control. The homicide rates are horrible. No type of gun control is working or will work in America. No matter what Beto O’Rourke says or attempts to change. Why waste tax dollars? I guess it’s because that’s what Democrats are good at. Just keep it up and continue to make the Republican Party stronger each day.

    A very foolish move. Americans will not stand for their right to bear arms to be infringed.
