Gun Control Digest: Idiocy For March 5, 2020

With all the gun control constantly in the news and my little ole self being totally unable to cover all of it, I figured I'd try something new. Just put some of the most relevant stuff in one single article every so often to try and keep all of us on the same page in the fight for our right to keep and bear arms.

What's relevant in the world of gun control and idiocy today?

Beto and Biden:

Beto dropped out of the presidential race quite some time ago, but like a plump hemorrhoid, he's just not going away. Democratic presidential front runner Joe “I'm running for Senate” Biden has come out saying he'd name Beto the gun control guy if elected.

As you can imagine this wouldn't be good for us, though there would certainly be some roadblocks to Beto's gun confiscation plans, it doesn't mean they wouldn't try. And if you remember correctly, that's exactly what he said he'd do.

I believe his exact words, while keeping our blog family friendly, were: H.E. double hockey stick “Yes, we're going to take your AR-15s.”

Uh, no Beto … no you're not.

Moving on.

Gun Control Advances in VA:

Despite the Virginia pro-gun efforts taking place in January where 22,000+ patriots peacefully gathered to make their voices heard, while the industry at large was out at SHOT Show, multiple new gun control laws are advancing in the state.

Read my article on it here.

While the gun ban was ultimately shot down, a few bills will be going to the governor's desk for his signature. The bills are as follows:

  • red flag laws
  • stolen or lost weapon reporting
  • give more authority to localities for gun control purposes
  • and others

It's interesting, as I sit here and write this I can't help but let my mind migrate to the third one in that list where he wants to give more authority to local governments, but only for gun control purposes. He refuses to let the Sheriffs not enforce the unconstitutional laws he's about to sign.

Hypocrite.

Gun Control Threats Mean Gun Sales Rise:

This one is actually good news if you're on the right side. It should come as no surprise that an election year will bring more gun sales. After all, there is uncertainty in how the election will go and the anti gun politicians aren't even hiding the fact that they don't want us armed,

They're even nice enough to “buy back our guns.”

Gun sales are up across the entire country, but some states have seen tremendous climbs in adjusted NICS checks.

In Virginia, for example, gun sales have climbed 63% just in that state just in February (over the same month last year), and the numbers were even higher in January while the debacle was freshly happening. The Commonwealth has historically been a very pro gun state and the people are rightfully worried.

Bloomberg Is Out:

More good news for us, is that we no longer have to listen Bloomy's anti gun ads for his presidential bid. He officially dropped out of the race after spending a healthy amount of money.

This is great news because he would have been terrible for the United States.

More Maryland Gun Control Introduced:

I'm not entirely sure how it could get any worse for the Old Line State, but anti-gun politicians are capable of all kinds of idiocy. The NRA reports:

Senate Bill 958 / House Bill 910 prohibits individuals from manufacturing, transferring, or possessing a firearm built with a 3-D printer.  SB 958 also bans the manufacture, transfer and possession of so-called “undetectable firearms” currently banned by both Maryland and federal law.  This legislation will do nothing to enhance public safety and instead​ relies on fear to advance an anti-gun narrative.

That, along with other measures are being introduced.

Maryland already has some of the worst gun laws in the country, and with a city like Baltimore, I'm not entirely sure how they can justify not letting good people protect themselves.

Conclusion:

We live in troubling times and it's only going to get worse for us unless we continue to stand up to the anti-gun politicians. If we ever lose our right to keep and bear arms, we're going to find ourselves up that proverbial, paddle-less creek pretty quick.

Leave your thoughts on anything I've said here in the comments below.

    Every Republican needs to get out and vote. Keep the Democrats out of the White House!

    You pretty much covered it. Politicians over react to the far edges of their parties and the rest of us pay the price. We have to keep our heads and continue to make calm, reasoned arguments on why they are wrong. You did a very good job here. No one has anything to fear from a responsible gun owner. Unless they want to relieve said responsible gun owner of their guns.

      The minute they (whoever they may be) come for the collection of our guns, the trouble is going to start. Have no doubts, Virginians are not going to freely give their guns to a tyrant. Not now, not ever!

    You are wrong about little nanny warbucks – while we don’t have to listen to his lying ads about how great he is(?) any more – he WILL be using the same tactics that wrecked Virginia in any and all places that he can. He DID get a major dressing down in that town hall at GMU on Monday but he has been adamant about spending as much money as it takes to get rid of DJT. And yes his money could well influence several state and federal races here in Texas.

    I find it hard to believe these politicians think they even have the right to subvert the Constitution of the United States. We the People are the only ones that have the right to change it. And Beto DON”T SEND SOMEONE TO DO A JOB YOU CAN’T
