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.
