Democrats, like Joe Biden, have been against Americans and their second amendment right to owning firearms, they say that the Constitution doesn’t protect “assault rifles”, referring to the AR-15. But something they don’t understand is that AR does not stand for “assault rifle”, it stands for ArmaLite rifle, coming from Armalite Inc., the guns original manufacturer in the 1950s.
Every time someone is killed by a gun or there is a mass shooting, both of which are of course terrible tragedies, Democrats are quick to run screaming “gun control!” But what they don’t understand is the gun control regulations they want will actually keep Americans less safe than they say their legislation would be designed to do. Andrew Pollack, who lost his daughter in the Parkland shooting, has something to say about gun legislation and why it won’t keep anyone, especially schools, safe. They say these new gun laws would make it harder for criminals to get weapons, but here’s the thing, putting a law in place doesn’t mean a criminal is going to abide by it. That’s why they’re called criminals, because they break the law. These gun laws would only make the already difficult and long process even more so for good, decent, law-abiding Americans to obtain a weapon to protect themselves. Leyla Pirnie explains how gun laws hurt Americans.
If Joe Biden were elected president two weeks from now, he would enact a gun control policy that would require every AR-15 rifle to be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. That act requires the gun owners to pay a federal tax of $200 for every AR-15 that they own. Andrew Arulanandam from the NRA told Breitbart the low end estimate of how much revenue this “provision” would generate. There are approximately 18 million AR-15s in the US, and with a $200 tax for each one, that is 3.6 billion dollars in taxes for the federal government.
Something to note is that this number doesn’t include other guns that Democrats would consider “assault weapons”, which gives the great potential for even more federal tax revenue. Democrats will stop at nothing to strip Americans of their rights to protect themselves. And if they can’t do that, they’ll tax the hell out of you.
Not only does this gun control agenda mandate an outrageous tax, but it also requires the owners to register the weapons with the federal government as well as submit fingerprints, a photo, and a potential FBI background check. Reading through Joe Biden’s website it only sounds like he’s rolling out the red tape to prevent good Americans from defending their own right to life.
Recently, Anderson Cooper interviewed Joe Biden on CNN, he asked him, “So, to gun owners out there who say, well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for guns?” Biden answered, “Bingo. You’re right, if you have an ‘assault weapon.’ The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period.” Sounds an awful lot like when Beto O’rourke said “hell yes we’ll take your AR-15s.”
Joe Biden and Democrats have been clear: they will do anything to take away American’s right to defend themselves. They don’t care that guns are the best equalizer for every person, like women for example who they say they are all about protecting and helping. If they were for women’s rights, they’d understand that women’s rights are gun rights. They don’t care that despite laws, criminals will always exist. There will always be people who have no desire to follow the law. There will always be crime and the best way for Americans to protect themselves is with a gun. They don’t care about Americans.
