We live in a world of reactionary “resistance”, focused around a group of angry millennials who will stop at nothing to disparage the nation’s conservative population.
This isn’t your average age-gap, whippersnappers versus fuddy-duddies sort of argument, either. This is very nearly war.
The left is pushing for a radical overhaul of American freedom, attempting to completely gut and renovate the First and Second Amendments. For the former, they have been steadily attempting to apply an emotional threshold to the freedom of speech in order to silence those who fail to stay up to speed on their pronouns and abbreviations.
Quite simply, the left wants control of the American language – something that we cannot allow to happen.
When it comes to the right to bear arms, however, their goals aren’t all that focused. It’s a very “spray and pray” situation where the left is attempting to disparage gun owners in any way possible, including with pedantic new age restrictions on purchasing firearms.
“In a statement released Friday, U.S. Dianne Feinstein announced she planned to introduce legislation on Capitol Hill to push the minimum purchase age for a rifle to 21. The move comes the same week that a 19-year-old man in Florida used a legally-owned rifle to kill 17 at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
“’Under current law, licensed gun dealers cannot sell a handgun to anyone under 21, but they are allowed to sell assault rifles like the AR-15 to anyone over 18. This policy is dangerous and makes absolutely no sense,’ Feinstein said. ‘If you can’t buy a handgun or a bottle of beer, you shouldn’t be able to buy an AR-15.’
“The proposal would move the threshold age for legal rifle purchases to 21, the bar set for modern pistols and revolvers under the Gun Control Act of 1968. Currently, in the U.S., 18 is seen as the age of adulthood by most factors, including entering the military without a parent’s waiver, registering to vote, buying cigarettes and getting married. Until 1984, it was legal to drink at age 18 in many states, a factor that only changed after legislation was enacted to penalize states who did not voluntarily raise the minimum drinking age to 21 by threatening to carve out federal road funds.”
Of course, Feinstein comes from the liberal LaLa Land where “assault” rifles are the “scary looking” ones, surrounding herself with lawmakers who share her same, misguided point of view.
Appalling ignorance aside, there is little hope that Feinstein and her cabal of Capitol Hill cronies will have much luck, thanks to the strength of the republican party under the guidance of populist President Donald Trump.
Oh, and it’s also fairly tough to ignore one of the greatest deterrents to gun rights in existence: The phrase “shall not be infringed” printed right there at the end of the Second Amendment.
