The democrats of America are working overtime this week in hopes of exploiting the emotions of the nation in their gun-grab agenda.
Thanks to the actions of the mentally disturbed teenager Nikolas Cruz in Parkland, Florida, the left has found themselves in a familiar, but filthy position: Preying on the grieving and mournful in order to push a political narrative that is out of touch and more than a little tyrannical.
Their hope is to shame and guilt otherwise liberty-minded Americans into giving up their right to bear arms, at least in part, after attempting to tie the mental illness attack in Florida to the 2nd Amendment. What they fail to realize is that Nikolas Cruz would not have been thwarted by the inability to purchase guns legally, or at all. His compulsion to kill had only one end in sight, regardless of the tool.
Now, riding this wave of sorrow like a perverse and suffocating tangle of flotsam and jetsam, Ohio democrats are looking to slingshot their own stranglehold on firearms into reality.
“A group of Ohio Democrats is pushing for a statewide ban on many semi-auto firearms in the Buckeye State in the wake of a mass shooting in Florida.
“The proposal, SB 260, backed by state Sens. Mike Skindell and Charleta Tavares, would define an ‘assault weapon’ as a semi-auto firearm with the capacity of accepting 10 or more rounds in the magazine, making it a felony to possess one.
“’Assault weapons were designed to be used by trained members of the military to kill people,’ Tavares said. ‘These weapons, unfortunately, are killing innocent children and adults by people who want to murder, maime [sic] and terrorize large masses of people in public spaces.’”
Again, the concept of the Second Amendment seems to have eluded the left in Ohio, and their idea of reducing the armament of the populace will create a path to tyranny that cannot be allowed to become reality.
