Opinion and Commentary By Donna Westfall – July 18, 2023
Sometimes it only takes the blink of an eye for things to change. One day our government seems benevolent; just look at al the social programs they spend money on.
And then all of a sudden, we’re at their beck and call. Freedoms lost. Forget the Constitution and Bill of RIghts. For one thing, when the Democrats in Washington D.C. are going after Trump for every little thing, you know we’re no longer living in a safe environment. For another thing, when the crooked Democrats are being given a pass on all their corruption you know we’re no longer living in a safe environment.
If you think this is bogus, just look at history. Mao in China. Hitler in Germany. Castro in Cuba. Just to name a few. They start out ok and end up killing millions of innocents. Just as an aside, I don’t believe for one second that Biden ever started out ok.
Now, our own elderly Senator Feinstein who should have retired a decade ago, has introduced S. 25 – an assault weapons ban.
What part of the 2nd Amendment do they not understand? Let’s take a look at the language once more:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.“
This in from Christopher Dorr, President, American Firearms Association:
“California Communist Senator Dianne Feinstein has introduced her so-called “Assault Weapons” ban with the full backing of Joe Biden and 43 Senate cosponsors.
Moments after Feinstein introduced S. 25, Biden went public with his support:
‘Today, Senator Feinstein, with whom I worked with to pass the last Assault Weapons Ban in 1994, has once again introduced an Assault Weapons and High-Capacity Magazine Ban in the Senate . . . act quickly and deliver this Assault Weapons Ban to my desk.‘
Feinstein’s bill would:
>>> Make it a felony to buy an AR-15 or any one of over 200 similar rifles, shotguns, and handguns.
>>> Make it a felony to buy any magazine that holds over 10 rounds of ammunition.
Our forefathers fought to ensure that the Second Amendment would pass on to us — ensuring our right to keep and bear arms — and now it’s up to our generation to do the same thing.”
Then he goes on:
“Biden, Feinstein and their cohorts are truly demented, capable of any form of evil.
And with nearly a dozen Republicans remaining in the Senate who voted for gun control last summer, it’s vital gun owners speak loudly, clearly and in a sustained manner to the U.S. Senate.
DO NOT pass this bill!
That’s why we’ve set a goal of gathering more than 500,000 petitions nationwide OPPOSED to S. 25, the Biden / Feinstein Assault Weapons Ban.
By flooding the U.S. Senate petitions and calls, we can push back with one voice and defeat S. 25.
It worked last year when we DEFEATED it in the Senate.“
They fight aggressively to protect the 2nd Amendment.
I’m wondering, where do you go to sign up to be part of our militia?
