“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
The tyranny which the Second Amendment was written to guard against can be seen forming quite clearly in the actions and goals of Democrats today. They’re gunning for guns, an agenda Democrats have worked towards since long before the tragic event in Orlando last week.
Consider it an object lesson in objects: While the left wails about the objects (weapons) used by criminals and terrorists, it refuses to acknowledge how it contributes to the conditions that make such events what some are now calling “the new normal.” But there’s nothing ‘normal’ about what happened in Orlando last week.
Ideologically unable to face the true nature and cause of the real problems behind such events, Democratic solutions are either ineffective or make matters worse.
From USA TODAY (June 22, 2016):
WASHINGTON — Democratic lawmakers ground the U.S. House to a halt Wednesday, staging a sit-in to demand a vote on gun control legislation.
Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, repeatedly banged his gavel to call the House into order at noon, but the Democrats refused to quiet, and so he gaveled the House into recess.
“Our people deserve to know where their representatives stand on this issue, just as they now do with their senators,” said House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md.
“Led by civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis, we will be sitting-in until the House is allowed an opportunity to vote. This is an issue that ought to transcend party — it’s about saving lives and keeping our communities safe.”
Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California went to the floor and called for a moment of silence as some held hands and continued chanting.
They have taken turns talking about gun violence, said they wouldn’t leave until House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., allowed a vote on measures to curb it, and chanted over and over “No bill, no break!”
