Democrats getting worse on gun control

IJRThere may be 20 different Democrats entering the presidential race, but all the primary candidates are coming together on one issue: restricting the Second Amendment.

Gun control has always been a complicated issue in the United States, with lawmakers on both sides trying to strike the balance between keeping Americans safe and not trampling their right to bear arms and defend themselves from tyrants.

But if recent policies have any indication on Democrats’ intentions, the candidates have stopped their consideration for the rights of gun owners. Here are six ways — big and small — that 2020 Democrats plan to strip gun owners of their access to firearms.

Democrats have never had any consideration for the rights of gun owners; until the Supreme Court forced the issue they preferred to believe the 2nd Amendment was about a militia rather than a right of the people. But until recently, Democrats felt the need to pretend to care; they would create little astroturf "gun rights" groups to give endorsements to their candidates and wait until after the election (and an appropriate crisis appeared) to do their blood dancing and legislating. But it appears that is changing, and many of the current presidential candidates don't even feel the need to pretend.

That may lead them into electoral disaster, but if one of them wins, the disaster will be on us.
