Want to watch a Liberal’s head explode? Ask them to explain what an “assault weapon” is.
Now, this term is actually confusing to most people because anything you attack another person with—and I mean ANYTHING—becomes an “assault weapon.”
It’s a weapon used to assault. Pretty straightforward.
If I come at you with a gun, a machete, a baseball bat, or a rolled-up newspaper, they’ve all crossed the line from being a tool/periodical to being an assault weapon because an assault is being committed.
However, we know what Leftists mean when they say they want to ban assault weapons.
They’re referring to big, black, scary-looking rifles with magazines that hold a large number of rounds. They mean guns that look a lot like the machine guns used by our military, most notably the AR-15 and the AK-47.
However, there’s a very big difference between the guns that were just mentioned and the ones used by the military.
The military kind is capable of fully automatic fire and is used exclusively in combat scenarios. The AR-15 and AK-47 are civilian weapons that are only semi-automatic.
The fact that these weapons have been banned by any government, federal or state, is a shame.
Because such legislation also goes against the very heart of the Second Amendment, which was created to allow for the citizens of the United States to keep their governments in check and not allow them to become tyrannical without a fight.
Tyranny Is Only ONE Vote Away
The scary truth is that that’s a real threat.
The more people begin to embrace socialist/collectivist ideologies, the closer we get to this once outlandish scenario becoming a reality.
Have you seen the way that Joe Biden and the Democrats are steamrolling the democratic process?
They’re running roughshod all over the US Constitution, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they wanted to do away with it altogether.
Which may be why a lot of Democrats want to disarm Americans. They want that transition to be a “peaceful” one—but we know that’s never the case, right?
The Left wants to disarm Americans and I believe it’s because they know that a disarmed society is a compliant society.
That’s why the recent ruling of a federal judge repealing California’s “assault” weapon ban was “unconstitutional” came at a crucial time. If the goal of the Left is to create a socialist state—and all their words and actions point to the fact that this is their goal—we need a deterrent to keep that threat at bay.
So, this ruling is couldn’t be more welcome to Conservatives of the state who know what’s at stake.
However, while the best part is that Americans will now be able to buy ARs and AKs in the Golden State, a close second has to be how much the ruling is sticking in the craw of California’s governor and Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Gavin Newsom.
His top blew when he heard this, so much so, that he went off on an emotional rant while spreading some untruths to the media.
Newsome Blows Gasket, Lies To Reporters
The governor said in a statement, “As the son of a judge, I grew up with deep respect for the judicial process and the importance of a judge’s ability to make impartial fact-based rulings, but the fact that this judge compared the AR-15 – a weapon of war that’s used on the battlefield – to a Swiss Army Knife completely undermines the credibility of this decision and is a slap in the face to the families who’ve lost loved ones to this weapon.”
Ummm, no, Gavin…
AR-15s are not weapons of war NOR are they used on the battlefield…unless you count the woods and fields of our great nation as a battlefield and deer, elk, and moose as the enemies.
There are other rifles that look SIMILAR to the AR-15 that are used by our military, but they have different capabilities, the biggest being the fact that the weapons the military uses (most notably the M4) can be configured as a fully automatic machine gun.
But those facts didn’t stop Newsom, as he closed with another lie, “We’re not backing down from this fight, and we’ll continue pushing for common sense gun laws that will save lives.”
We already HAVE common-sense gun laws…
And the fact that he doesn’t realize that means either he knows nothing about guns or he simply wants to impede gun sales as to not allow Americans to arm themselves against the threats that our world and our government throw at us.
So.. which is it?
I think we can guess which one…
