Hey, Sen. Dick Durbin. When you try to mansplain a judge's opinion to said judge, maybe you should read it.
Durbin could not believe Barrett thinks felons should own guns! Except, you know, she didn't.
The combination of the Coronavirus pandemic shutdowns and the riots which followed have essentially rendered gun control a moot issue for a generation.
We have previously written about the surge in gun sales, but now we have a clearer picture of the numbers.
With presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s recent announcement of Kamala Harris as his running mate, and the Democratic National Convention in full swing, now seems the perfect time to take a closer look at the recently released 2020 Democratic Party Platform on gun control.
Gun sales are way up, across the country, for obvious reasons. The numbers began to rise with the Coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, and only grew as riots began in multiple cities at the beginning of the summer.
Now imagine being someone who lives in one of these riot torn cities, where your Democrat leaders are trying to defund the police, and learning that it's going to be difficult to arm yourself.
At approximately 5:30 a.m. on March 2, 2020, about 30 members of Black Lives Matter showed up at the door of Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey's home demanding that she take a meeting with them. Needless to say, her husband was not amused.
Ah, yes. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot spewing the Democratic rhetoric on guns to deflect blame on others for the rising shooting and homicide numbers in the city.
Lightfoot claimed Chicago is "being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons."
I'm so old I remember when the media would flop onto the nearest fainting couch at the sight of a protester exercising his or her Second Amendment rights. Remember the wails of horror, fear, and outrage we were treated to when Tea Party activists and, more recently, anti-lockdown protesters were shown lawfully openly carrying perfectly lawful firearms at protests?
Months ago, when the country shut down and you couldn't buy a roll of toilet paper anywhere, people began arming themselves at an increasing rate.
Now that roving mobs of looters and rioters are preying on American cities, gun sales are reaching historic highs.
