12 Oct 20 Let’s all enjoy page 47 of the 2020 DNC Platform: “Democrats will ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. We will incentivize states to enact licensing requirements for owning firearms and extreme-risk-protection-order laws that allow courts to temporarily remove guns from the possession of those who are a danger to themselves or others. We will pass legislation requiring that guns be safely stored in homes. Democrats believe that gun companies should be held responsible for their products, just like any other business, and will prioritize repealing the law that shields gun manufacturers from civil liability.” Sounds so smooth, but let’s translate the foregoing underhanded Marxist drivel into plain English: They want to ban undefined “assault weapons.” Marxists never get specific. They don’t dare!They will include within their definition all autoloading firearms, leaving us with revolvers, bolt-guns, lever-guns, and pump-guns. Of course, their ecumenical ban will never apply to them. Are you surprised that they always exempt themselves? They want to expand unconstitutional “red flag laws,” so that your guns can all be forcefully confiscated, based on the secret, unsworn testimony of a single person you don’t even know. You can be thus precipitously disenfranchised, without ever being charged with a crime, much less convicted! They want to require states to impose “licensing,” so that a “license” will be required to even purchase a gun. The issuance of such licenses can then be delayed indefinitely, so as to limit the number of guns in private possession. This is currently ongoing in NY, NJ, and other states. Residents of those states, when they don’t already own a gun, have virtually no chance of ever owning one within the next year, or two! “Safe storage” in homes means that guns needed for defense of one’s home are required to be continuously inaccessible, so they cannot possible be used for said defense of the home. As in Canada, violent burglary suspects will be granted immunity from prosecution, so that they can testify that you gained access to your defensive firearm “too fast,” which now becomes a felony. Finally, gun and ammunition manufacturers will all be put out of business via crushing lawsuits.  The entire American arms industry is obviously slated for destruction. When someone misuses a gun, it is automatically assumed to be the manufacturer’s fault, even though all laws were obeyed! Nowhere on page 47 is there any mention of our Second Amendment, nor of any other part of our Constitution. No mention of our individual rights as American Citizens. They only want to talk about what they’re going to do to us! They only want to talk about a host of new laws, rules, and regulations that will never apply to them! They are our masters, and we are their slaves, and they (with a straight face) demand that we vote them intopower! /John
