Dems Don’t Like Your Guns –Their Adopted Platform Says So


You didn’t hear it from DNC speakers last week on stage during  prime-time or any other time for that matter, but the Democrats don’t like your  guns and want to restrict both your access to them and ownership of them as much  as possible. Their adopted platform says it all:

“Firearms. We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an  important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second  Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own  firearms is subject to reasonable regulation. We understand the terrible  consequences of gun violence; it serves as a reminder that life is fragile, and  our time here is limited and precious. We believe in an honest, open national  conversation about firearms. We can focus on effective enforcement of existing  laws, especially strengthening our background check system, and we can work  together to enact commonsense improvements – like reinstating the assault  weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole – so that guns do not fall into  the hands of those irresponsible, law-breaking few.”


“We recognize that individual right to bear arms is an important part  of the American tradition.” They start by using the words “we  recognize” instead of, “the Constitution guarantees.” BIG difference.

Next, they leave out “keep and bear” as found in the Second Amendment and  water it down to only say “bear” which denies a gun owner the basic right of  storing firearms. Liberals prefer guns be locked up in common storage areas only  to be checked out like library books from time to time when we crazies need to  get our fix.

Finally, they use the words “American tradition” which implies that gun  ownership is not a fundamental right and can be changed like other traditions  such as prayer or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance through a generation or two  of educational indoctrination and brainwashing in our public schools.

“We will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use  firearms.” Quick, can you name any legislation ever that restricted  gun ownership and usage that was promoted by and supported by a majority of  Republicans? Jesus said, “By their fruits you shall know them.” Believing this  line from Democrats is akin to believing a criminal when he says, “Do what I say  and you won’t get hurt.” The next sentence in the plank negates the previous one  anyway.

“We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable  regulation.” The Founders chose their words wisely. “The right of  the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” does not say, “the right of the people to keep and bear  arms subject to reasonable regulation.”

Here’s my translation of the first two sentences of the plank: The old  outdated Constitution says that you can have your guns and those crazy Supreme  Court justices recently affirmed your individual right to own a gun, but we  don’t like it and we’re going to do everything within our power to negate those  so-called rights in the name of being reasonable.

“We understand the terrible consequences of gun violence; it serves  as a reminder that life is fragile, and our time here is limited and  precious.” It’s a plain and simple truth: gun violence most often is  halted only by additional gun violence. We live in a fallen world and evil  people do evil things. The two best ways to stop criminals engaged in gun  violence is to shoot them while they are committing the act and to lock them up  for a very long time if they survive or are caught later (Both of which liberals  are against). Not all gun violence produces terrible consequences, just ask any  hunter. Venison anyone?

Violence is violence whether it is committed by a gun, knife, baseball bat,  vehicle, chemical, or explosive. Assuming that one can eliminate violence by  restricting an inanimate object is sheer foolishness. If safety is the issue,  then we should start with automobiles, fires, prescription medications, swimming  pools, ropes, and then deal with guns sometime after five gallon buckets and  plastic bags.

I would be remiss if I didn’t note that life is fragile to liberals except  when it is a baby growing inside of its mother’s womb. I personally think we  should restrict saline solution and forceps violence, but I digress.

“We believe in an honest, open national conversation about  firearms.” INTERPRETATION: Can’t we just hold  hands, light candles, and sing, “We are the World”? Don’t bother us with the  undeniable facts about more guns resulting in less crime and how areas with the  strictest of gun control laws have the highest violent crime rates.

“We can focus on effective enforcement of existing laws, especially  strengthening our background check system, and we can work together to enact  commonsense improvements – like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing  the gun show loophole – so that guns do not fall into the hands of those  irresponsible, law-breaking few.” Ahhh. Finally, here it is: the  crown jewel of the gun control crowd. Tell us again how restricting the  Constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens stops “those irresponsible,  law-breaking few”? Do I have to state the obvious that criminals by definition  do not abide by the law?

One last thought: For the crowd who wants, through “reasonable regulation”, to limit magazine capacity, caliber size, cosmetic features, type of action or  so called “assault weapons” because they were not around during the writing of  the 2nd Amendment, I say bull crap.

Freedom of the press is not limited to antique printing presses or quill pen  and parchment, freedom of speech is not limited to talking in the public square,  and protection of personal effects is not limited to horse carriages and  couriers. If Ben Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, or James Madison  could have foreseen the invention of the M-4, Mark 19, M-203, Barrett .50 cal,  M-240, M-2, Glock 19, and the like, I can assure you that they would not only  have had them in their personal armories but would have considered them  absolutely protected under the 2nd Amendment.

Trusting Democrats to promote gun rights is like entrusting Teddy Kennedy or  Bill Clinton with your teenage daughter.
