Democrats Propose Guns Only for the Rich

Given that Democrats are the Party of Big Money, it comes as no surprise that they are attacking our right to bear arms by attempting to price us out of it:

More than two dozen House Democrats put forward legislation Friday that would slap “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines with a 1,000% excise tax, a change that would raise the price of a $500 weapon to $5,000 in a bid to reduce access to guns across the country.

The power to tax is the power to destroy. It can even be used to destroy the Constitution.

If the bill goes through, police-defunding congresscritter Cori Bush (D-BLM) will have to spend even more than the $490,000 she blew on private security last year. No worries; or rulers have plenty of money — ours.

Fortunately, it won’t become law until Democrats achieve the leverage.

In the meantime:

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is urging the Biden Administration to “issue” new gun controls under the auspices of the gun control package passed by Congress and signed by Biden during the summer of 2022.

Blumenthal wants to be known for something other than stolen valor.

The 2022 gun control package Blumenthal has in mind, the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, was the result of Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) crossing the aisle to work with Democrats to secure gun control.

Cornyn played a central role in rewarding race riots by making George Floyd Day (a.k.a “Juneteenth”) a federal holiday. Working across the aisle with Democrats comes naturally to him.

Blumenthal tweeted: “I’m hoping all new regulations will be issued & made effective soon by the Biden Administration under the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.”

The New York Times reported that the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act contained a provision that allows an expansion of background checks via a reclassification of what constitutes a firearms dealer. This provision would shift the definition of firearms dealer so as to include not only those who make their livelihood selling guns but “anyone who earns a profit from selling firearms” as well.

Bureaurats redefining the term “firearms dealer” is a bigger deal than it might seem. Here’s why:

Expanded background checks lead to a gun registry, as they are not enforceable without such a registry. Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) spoke with Breitbart News about the anticipated executive action and noted that, ironically, the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act (1986) prohibits the creation of gun registry.

Once this little wrinkle has been ironed out, Democrats can establish the registry. After that, they only need to wait for a sufficiently horrific school shooting or social unrest resulting from power outages before door-to-door confiscation can begin.

After that, the last off ramp before Soviet-style despotism is civil war.

  1. […] the big split won’t happen in response gun confiscation. Maybe the Cold Civil War will go hot over […]

  2. […] Democrats aspire to make the situation dramatically worse by disarming law-abiding citizens, leaving the criminals they egg on with leftist rhetoric and allow to run free armed to the teeth. […]
