It never fails. Every time there is an attack on U.S. soil, liberal politicians use it as a chip to restrict gun ownership.
Forgetting the fact that gun violence happens every day in inner cities by gangs and criminals, they use highly publicized events to try to manipulate the American public. They want you to believe that guns are the problem, not the dangerous people who will use whatever they can to harm others.
While they ignore rational thought and refuse to go after the terrorist groups responsible, Democrats push for greater restriction on the Second Amendment.
There may be enough support in Congress to prevent the most recent measures from being passed, there are new enemies to our Constitutional rights: the Supreme Court.
Via Fox News:
The Supreme Court has rejected challenges to assault weapons bans in Connecticut and New York, in the aftermath of the shooting attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, that left 50 people dead.
The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that upheld laws that were passed in response to another mass shooting involving a semi-automatic weapon, the elementary school attack in Newtown, Connecticut.
The Supreme Court has repeatedly turned away challenges to gun restrictions since two landmark decisions that spelled out the right to a handgun to defend one’s own home.
Even though the Orlando shooting happened states away, the Supreme Court used it as an excuse to deny the rights of New Yorkers and Connecticut citizens. The restrictions that are currently in place prevent law-abiding citizens from owning guns that could protect their homes. Apparently the Supreme Court only wants home invaders and criminals to carry weapons.
Allen B West weighs in with some insight:
Yet another reminder of how absolutely critical this presidential election is to the future our Americans’ Second Amendment rights. With Scalia’s replacement still open, and the likelihood of a few other vacancies opening during the next four years, the next president’s appointees will be nothing less than make-or-break for the Second Amendment. And we know that a President Hillary Clinton would be the “break” in that scenario.
Who knows what will happen to our Second Amendment rights should Hillary be elected. We could be looking at an America where no citizen is allowed to own a gun. Millions of Americans will be branded as criminals and none of us will have the power to defend our other rights, like free speech or land ownership.
That’s the kind of America we cannot allow to exist.
