Dear Left, No More Gun Control
Kevin Felts 06.21.17
Even after James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican members of Congress, the answer is no, we are not open to a discussion on more gun control. Nor will we be.
Gun owners gave up some of our rights with the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. What did the left give?
In 1989, President Bush banned the import of various firearms. the ban is still in effect. What did the left give?
We gave on the Federal Assault Weapons Ban. Without much of an outcry from Democrats, the ban expired in 2004. You had your assault weapon ban, and you let it expire. Do not cry about sour grapes more than a decade later.
After the Brady Bill was passed, now we have to go through a background check that is often delayed. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “A right delayed is a right denied.” Ask someone to show an ID to vote and the left flips out. What makes one right more important than another?
Here is the issue at hand: Gun owners have given, and given, and given, until we have nothing more to give. What has the left given? Nothing, that’s what. The left continues to ask gun owners to give up our rights, and we are sick and tired of it.
No more discussion on gun control, period.
Rather than the left being happy with:
- Preventing family violence offenders from owning a firearm.
- Background checks, which are sometimes delayed.
- Barrel length regulations on rifles and shotguns.
- Prison time for straw man purchases.
- Prison time for offenders who use a firearm in a crime.
- States passing various oppressive gun laws.
- Silencers regulated.
- Short barreled rifles regulated.
- Selective fire (full or semi-automatic) heavily regulated.
They keep wanting more and more.
Calling gun owners “racist”, and a “group of angry white men” only compounds the issue.
In all honesty, the anti-gun left are like a bunch of spoiled children. They are never happy, and when they do not get their way, they start name calling. Flail on the floor all you want, it will get you nowhere.
The plan for the next few years: Republicans are going to undo decades of oppressive gun control laws. We realized dealing with the left was a mistake, and we are taking corrective action.
Between 2008 and 2016:
- Democrats lost over 1,000 state seats.
- Lost both houses of Congress.
- Lost the Presidency.
How much more proof do you want that people oppose the liberal left agenda?
While the left tries to figure out what nasty names to call gay gun owners, we will be making sure their right to keep and bear arms are upheld.
