According to Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC), if we expand background checks the United States will turn into Rwanda.
Let’s also discuss Liberty. There is a reason that some want to end private gun ownership, limit ammo purchases, limit magazine capacity……AND there is a reason that our Founding Fathers included the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights.
The 2nd Amendment is (or should be) equal to the 1st Amendment and the 4th Amendment and all of the others. Ask yourselves why it is under attack? Ask yourselves about a National gun registry database and how that might be used and why it is so wanted by progressives.
Read about the Rwandan genocide, the Hutu and Tutsi tribes. Read that all Tutsi tribe members were required to register their address with the Hutu government and that this database was used to locate Tutsi for slaughter at the hands of the Hutu. (Since the government had the names and addresses of nearly all Tutsis living in Rwanda (remember, each Rwandan had an identity card that labeled them Tutsi, Hutu, or Twa) the killers could go door to door, slaughtering the Tutsis.
Do progressives and liberals want to make you register your gun so they can then slaughter you? Maybe. Probably. I bet they’ll use a drone.
To an outsider, American politics must be very confusing.
On one hand the president is painted as an incompetent fool who doesn’t know what he’s doing, and on the other hand he’s somehow responsible for convincing over 80 percent of Americans that they should mark themselves for slaughter.
Similarly, liberals are supposedly responsible for the wussification of America, but apparently we make no bones about plotting mass genocide.
