Destruction

 

Battle lines are drawn. The NRA is the target du-jour of the litany of Democrat Presidential candidates, vying for boldest denouncement of the millions of armed, peaceful, and law-abiding citizens in America. Six million strong, this large sector of the American public is an easy target for these “bold” politicians to threaten fearlessly; after all, they are law-abiding.

Not one of these six million plus members of the NRA has ever committed mass murder, though gun control advocates have waited with bated breath for the first offense. In lieu of a specific scapegoat, leaders with “vision”, under the haze of ambiguity, have chosen to smear the entirety of the NRA membership as killers. With every tragic massacre that stains our troubled Nation, it’s a tactic of old: hang the guilt of the demented on the guiltless.

Joe Biden has sworn to destroy the NRA. As the Democrats present their “fresh, new look”, did the Former Vice-President have a “senior moment” and forget that the NRA is made up of U.S. Citizens? The NRA leadership, he despises so much, are duly elected by those members.

Joe Biden may be better served to pinch himself, rather than passing members of the opposite sex, and wake back to the reality that the 2nd Amendment was set in place to protect the citizens’ Natural Born Right to Self-Defense against a government that seeks their harm, specifically people groups that have fallen out of favor with said government. The 2nd was designed to stop Mr. Biden’s plan of destruction.

There is history. Realizing that much of our history has been largely rewritten, digging deep into history is necessary.. There is some mention, some might recall, of another politician, some years back in another place, who targeted six million people for destruction.

Monday Irony

When lawmakers in Maine, the safest state in the Republic, want to pass laws to replicate the states with the highest crime rates.

When lawmakers in Maine take an oath to uphold the State and Federal Constitution and then spend a whole legislative session and taxpayers’ monies questioning a Natural Born Right, which the Maine State Constitution guarantees emphatically “shall never be questioned!”

A Red Flag on Red Flag

 

A reasonable request is the wrapping that always gleams around the package of anti-gun legislation. A temptation for the modern Pandora to unwrap in a quest to prove a worthy proponent of reasonable acquiescence. In the pattern of the wrapping’s past lies the folly of lifting that fabled lid.

The aftermath of tragedy usually finds “we-must-do-something” politicians careening about with all the precision of a pinball machine directing the Nation to pay little heed that laws were not enforced, but instead, add one more. In the case of Red Flag gun laws, government is endeavoring to do what it has utterly failed to do in the past; solve a problem. Trying to solve one problem usually finds the government inventing a whole list of new ones.

Red Flag laws vary in their form but are all packaged as a way to keep guns away from those who may give evidence, show a tendency, give that icky feeling, or in rare versions been accused of domestic violence. Remember, fifty states have civil commitment procedures already in place. Still, there are a couple of reasons to raise a red flag on Red Flag laws.

Domestic situations are of the most complicated and confusing that law enforcement have to deal with. To take a citizen’s weapons away based upon accusation without conviction encourages revenge attacks so prevalent in these domestic tangled webs. The criteria for a “Red Flag” accusation tends to be too broad in most of these legislation lending credence to the suspicion of a “Trojan” motive.

This is the fundamental reason for opposing these laws, the end game. Anti-gun legislation always has the ultimate goal of gun confiscation. This pattern is forever consistent with government and no reasonable citizen should open the door to that.
