Remember when Arizona was part of the Wild West?
The story of Wyatt Earp and his time in Tombstone, one of the most famous legends to come out of those times, is such a part of American lore that the mere mention of the famous lawman’s name conjures up images of the Western gunslingers and how their grit helped forge the young United States.
You would think Arizona, given its storied history, would be right behind Texas in their love of guns – but you’d be mistaken. It seems most Arizonans don’t seem to care about their 2nd Amendment rights anymore.
It’s weird, especially when you remember that Arizona’s most famous modern-day lawmaker is so old-school he puts prison inmates in pink jumpsuits and makes them break rocks…
But stranger things have happened.
Take, for example, the trampling of 2nd Amendment rights that’s happening in Virginia as we speak.
The newly-blue government has already passed legislation that will LIMIT the kinds of guns that people are allowed to buy, reducing that quantity to one at a time.
And they have banned “high capacity” magazines, although they haven’t determined what number is actually considered “high,” or even who gets to decide on that number.
The fact that the federal government hasn’t stepped in and showed the Dems in Virginia how the Constitution works yet is baffling…
But give it time…Bill Barr is busy.
Arizona Dems Take Page From Virginia Gun Grabbers
That being said…
Dems have become emboldened by what’s happening in Virginia—so any other state with a strong Democrat presence seems to be taking a page out their book.
Like the Dems in Arizona, who are trying to pass an even more comprehensive gun control than Virginia. The question is – will Arizonans fight it like the patriotic Virginians?
The bill, AZ SB1625, is WAY more intrusive than Virginia’s…
The legislation is proposing not only the simple ownership of “assault weapons,” but the manufacture of said firearms as well – unless the factory is making those guns for the police or military.
The statute to “surrender” said firearms also applies to “high capacity” magazines and certain semiautomatic pistols and shotguns…
Making the new gun legislation in Virginia seem TAME by comparison.
Think about it: while Dems in Virginia are pushing an “assault weapons” ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, the criminalization of private gun sales via universal background checks, gun rationing legislation that mandates no more than one handgun purchase a month, a ban on suppressors, and myriad other gun controls…
At least they’re not asking for lawful Americans to surrender all of their firearms.
Why Disarm Arizonans?
Apparently, Arizona Dems want to go above and beyond what they feel is necessary to keep their power safe.
Yeah… power, not citizens.
Taking guns away from lawful citizens doesn’t make their population safer – it puts them in danger…
The only thing safe would be the Dems’ power.
Plain and simple.
Expect to see more legislation like this in other blue-controlled states…
This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
