The assault against our 2nd Amendment right had increased dramatically during the last administration. With a wink and a nod from the administration, groups such as Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns, Mom’s Demand Action, and The Brady Campaign, used every resource available to attack our God given right to defend ourselves and our loved ones.
Many of these groups receive funds through organizations created by “Silent Partners” to hide their involvement. The “partners” assist these groups with money, organization, data, personnel, and media. They all claim to want to enact “sensible” gun regulations, and close loopholes which allow criminals to acquire guns. But their true motives are revealed when we pay attention to their actions, and listen to what they’re saying. “It’s not always what you say, but how you say it.”
The façade was lifted through numerous interviews. Group members along with congressmen were heard speaking while “off the record” through live mics. When they believed the conversation was private, they spoke honestly of gun confiscation, and the best course of action to achieve their goals. Then when confronted, they obfuscated the issue, and claimed to be “taken out of perspective”.
The liberals understood the public would never accept gun confiscation if it was forced on us. So they resigned themselves to enact legislation, use courts, use regulation agencies, use falsified statistics, anything that would further their cause. They decided on a slow and purposed process that would go unnoticed and allow them to reach their goals. If the federal government couldn’t provide the results, then friendly state representatives could. If that didn’t appease them, the states could be flooded with suits, and bad media… and the media always performed…
The media response immediately after tragedies always exposed their intent. Every media outlet ensured the attacks were never ending, and always against our 2nd amendment right. Their narrative had already been pre-approved, and all that was needed is a few specifics. Even specifics were negotiable, as some media outlets had already been caught manipulating data and tapes. All the media manipulation was to forward the narrative to propagandize the populace into viewing guns as evil and as the problem. The end goal of all these groups is confiscation of all guns.
What these groups fail to understand, or intentionally obfuscate in order to push their agenda, is that the problem has always been the criminals within all aspects of our society. Now I’m not going to go into the socio-economic or intersectional reasons for criminals, but a criminal is going to get a gun regardless of any law.
The ONLY people hurt by these regulations are the law abiding gun enthusiast.
