Liberals want us to give up our guns. They want to take away our Second Amendment right to bear arms. They want us to protect our families, homes, and property by declaring gun-free zones, and passing legislation. The problem here is that bans on weapons and declaring gun-free zones doesn’t keep the terrorists and criminals from arming themselves.
Although a Federal ban on assault weapons failed to reduce gun crimes, liberal states like Connecticut and New York have their own ban on semi-automatic weapons. These bans were recently challenged and the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the bans. Seven states and the District of Colombia have imposed bans on assault rifles. Even with bans on specific types of weapons and strict laws restricting the sale of weapons, criminals and terrorists are still arming themselves and killing law-abiding Americans.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
There’s a reason why nearly 100 million Americans own guns. There is a very real and rational concern that the U.S. government will become the tyrannical overlord that we fear, and will try to confiscate our legally owned firearms. And with the recent decision not to hear the gun ban case from New York and Connecticut, our fears are much more realize than ever before.
While the prospects of a Federal semi-automatic weapons ban are slim, that isn’t stopping some liberal States from instituting their own. New York and Connecticut are two States with their own semi-automatic weapons ban, and they had been recently challenged, the case making its way all up to the Supreme Court.
Now, following the horrific massacre in Orlando, the challenge to those bans has failed. It’s hard not to speculate that the timing was coincidental.
