What’s Next For Gun Rights? Nothing Good

The next couple of years are probably going to be rough for the Second Amendment and lovers of freedom at large. Forget about (re) gaining ground for our (already significantly reduced) rights, retaining control of the senate was our only hope at keeping things the way they are now, and now that Georgia has voted for anti-gun senators our 2A rights are about to be obliterated.

I can live with the fact that some of you won't agree with me, and I really, really hope I'm wrong. Let's take a deeper dive into this to try and decipher it.

On the surface, Biden says that he believes in the Second Amendment. But, he doesn't believe that it stands for the things that you and I believe it does, unless your idea of the 2A is restricted to hunting. If you believe in the fundamental right to self-defense, you have a differing opinion than he does.

All you have to do is take a look at his website, which I refuse to link to in this article, to see that this is true. He also believes that the Second Amendment is “limited.” When something is “limited” it's not really a right, it's a privilege.

If you know how to read and interpret things I'd like to congratulate you as being one of the few with a fully functional brain.

What do I mean? Well, the 2A says “shall not be infringed.” Which, ya know, means that you can't take it away.

We've already covered what “well regulated” means for the naysayers and rule pushers, and it was never meant to be about rules. The term “well regulated” back when the 2A was written (if you have the audacity to look something up for yourself) meant that something was functioning properly.

It does not matter if you think Biden wants to take guns away or not, or even if he actually does try, he has made it perfectly clear that his goal is to appease certain groups of people who just happen to hate guns.

And in fact, the gun haters are already calling for those “common sense” gun control laws, wrongly pointing out in surveys that say 90-something percent of people think that red-flag laws are okily-dokily.

Well, not only are they inflating those numbers, and not only are they not okay — red flag laws are unconstitutional.

However that, and other gun control legislation, is now on the table with nobody to stop.

And to be honest, it isn't even Biden, or Harris once everyone realizes that Biden won't be able to physically (or mentally) carry out his first term to full capacity. At the end of the day the president doesn't have that much power.

Instead, we have to worry about the anti-gun politicians in the house and senate.

These are politicians who hate guns and gun owners and I wouldn't at all be surprised if they didn't already have some gun control measures written up.

And if they don't already have them drawn up, it won't be long before they do. It won't matter if it's Biden or Harris because either one of them will sign whatever it is. And now that they own both houses, we can start to kiss our freedoms goodbye.

Things are about to get a lot trickier my friends. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

About Joshua Gillem

Josh is a lifelong practitioner and student of the gun. He grew up shooting/hunting with his dad, and was given his first gun, a 12 gauge shotgun, when just a small boy.

    My fear is that people will eventually reach a breaking point and these clear violations of our constitional rights will lead to war.

    No doubt internal war is coming to our country. Too much division, hatred, lying media and now we are about to lose may of our rights to those Liberals! Whatever made them believe that they are GOD? We can’t allow people like us only not as intelligent to get away with ordering us how to live and what we can or can’t say. The boiling point is closest hand. Republicans have been responsible, respectful and law abiding through this last year or so. No longer, it’s time to kick some ass. 1 BLMr at a time, 1 capital at a time until we get a balance government and nation that can work together and agree to disagree. Until then, my gun goes everywhere I go!!! I take no chances. I have lost empathy and trust towards certain types of people. Trust hast to be earned. They are far from that!

    I think it’s even worse than some fear. Not only have we lost the Senate, once Biden/Harris start packing the Supreme Court, the only check left in place will be us.

      Aren’t the people ALWAYS the ultimate check on power in a self-governed society?

      Isn’t that precisely why the well regulated militia exists? To secure a free state?

    Sounds like old Rick is ready to start murdering people. What a country…

      Sounds like you’re ready to start handing over your natural rights. Give me your address, I’ll come pick up your guns.

    I too have been a gun owner since a youngster. I am I agreement with the impression of what is going to happen to our 2A rights. The question I have, and I’ll start moderately: let’s say the first thing that happens is mandatory buy back for all AK’s. What will you do?

    • Richard D. on January 14, 2021 at 3:46 pm

      I had heard that HR 38 is already on the table, and their last document, “Clean Sweep” will probably put back on the table. Our socialist democrats don’t understand that this country could have another civil war. Every dictator in recent history who gets put into power always removes the firearms from its people. Socialism/Communism has never worked, but these misfits truly believe they can.

  6. Steve on January 14, 2021 at 7:24 am

    Nothing will happen to gun rights. Gun rights are inviolate. Whether or not the government attempts to infringe on those rights, however, is a different matter.

    The right to life is likewise sacrosanct, but that doesn’t mean someone won’t try to kill you.

    The only relevant question is: what are you going to do about it?
