My Take on The Progression of Gun Control
Liberals claim they don’t want to take our guns. They just want to confiscate certain guns. Or certain attachments. Or away from people that “can’t be trusted” with guns. And in some cases, they even make those proposals sound reasonable. And they always make sure to insist that they don’t want to take your guns. But, the progression of gun control over the past few years shows how big of a lie that is. Gun control is unreasonable. And the liberals are coming to take our guns.
The progression of gun control legislation since the NFA Acts shows that very clearly. Maybe they’ll take them from dissidents through the red-flag laws that enable them to punish thought crimes. Or they’ll just ban so-called “assault weapons” and claim that AR-15s aren’t protected by the 2nd Amendment (they are).
And all that time gun owners who don’t want to get politically involved and fight red flag laws, or who don’t own an AR-15 and thus don’t want to take part in that fight, will just stand idly by while the government restricts our rights.
And soon enough there won’t be enough gun owners to effectively resist tyranny and maintain the 2nd Amendment. It’s just like the poem “First They Came for…” by Martin Niemoller. Here’s how it goes:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.By: Martin Niemoller
Replace “socialists” with “machine guns,” “Trade Unionists” with “assault weapons,” “Jews” with “thought criminals,” and “me” with “a typical gun owner.” Then it’s easy to see how this applies to the gun control issue. We have to remain united and fight against unconstitutional gun control laws while we’re strong. If we don’t, then soon enough there will be no one left to fight for us.
Resist the progression of gun control laws. Those unconstitutional laws need to be rolled back, not advanced.
