H/T Bearing Arms.
I am very afraid of a Biden presidency.
The debate over firearms and gun rights isn’t going anywhere for the foreseeable future. While there are more gun owners today and there are reasons to believe that many are going to poke holes in the anti-gun narrative, the truth is that the gun control crowd isn’t going anywhere.
Further, we have an avowed anti-gunner set to officially be crowned as the Democratic nominee, which has set of debate over just who Biden’s running mate will be.
One potential candidate let her real agenda slip in a recent comment.
Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.) joined the Everytown for Gun Safety’s Veepstakes and just might have let slip what her gun control goals would be should she join presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on the ticket as his running mate. Speaking with Shannon Watts, Rep. Bass decried gun control’s slow progress in Congress.
“I mean we’ve passed universal registra… uh, universal background checks out of the House! It’s one of the 400 bills languishing in the Senate.”
Now, there are some who view universal background checks as some kind of de facto gun registration. I’m one of them. Even though it’s not a formal registry, paperwork would exist on every single firearm I buy and sell. After a time, it would serve the same purpose as a gun registry, especially if the government decided to confiscate firearms from people.
However, no one on the left has dared say that.
For most, they simply don’t see it that way. They don’t seem to realize that just because a thing isn’t meant to be used that way doesn’t mean it won’t.
But Bass’s slip suggests that she knows otherwise.
Oh, I’m sure that will be dismissed as a simple slip of the tongue, that she means no such thing. However, that’s kind of hard to swallow. Especially since slips like this usually come because something like that is on your mind in the first place. Bass wants gun registration on a federal level and she couldn’t hide it from us.
I’m sure the “fact-checkers” will make a big deal about how she didn’t say it and how people slip up from time to time and that’s all this is, but these are the same fact-checkers that label parody stories as false. I’m sorry, but I’m less than trusting of what they say when it comes to politics.
Bass screwed up. Anti-gunners aren’t supposed to acknowledge what they really want. They’re only supposed to push the Next Thing. It’s never supposed to be about the end game or even the things they want on down the road–things like gun registration. They’re supposed to keep going on about the Next Thing simply so they can say, “No, we’re not trying to take your guns away or anything we only want this Next Thing.”
Of course, the Next Thing then becomes something else and so on until they’re precisely where they wanted to be and we’re completely disarmed.
What’s more, people like Bass think we can’t see it. They think we’re unable to see what they’re working toward. Instead, they just complain about how we won’t compromise with them.
Well, they’re right. We won’t.
But, in fairness, it’s hard to compromise with people who only want to take from you and won’t offer anything in return.
