Democrats are going to try and take your guns in 2019.
Lawmakers just put up one of their heftiest attacks on the Second Amendment since 1994, aiming to ban 205 ‘assault weapons’ by name in 2019.
We’ve talked about this… and now here it is. They are coming to take your guns.
The Democrats introduced the Assault Weapon Ban of 2019 on Wednesday, targeting the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of ‘military-style’ weapons.
Honored to have the support of @Everytown who are leading the charge for sensible gun laws in our country. I'll never stop fighting to keep dangerous weapons of war off our streets. pic.twitter.com/xOYfgZtTaD

Chris Murphy from CT commented on the bill. “This past year, we’ve seen Americans rise up and demand Congress change our gun laws. Banning assault weapons would save lives,” said Murphy.
Guns.com listed the specifics of the bill. ‘The term “assault weapon” would be defined as a semi-automatic with a detachable magazine that included one of a list of cosmetic features that are deemed “military characteristics” such as a threaded barrel, pistol grip or folding stock.’
We have one major argument against gun control to those who try and attack our liberties.
Whiskey Patriots to liberals: Do you trust the government?
Liberals to Whiskey Patriots (99% of the time): Hell no!
Whiskey Patriots to liberals: Then WHY would you want the government to be the only ones with access to these types of weapons?
Liberals: Oh…. Never thought about that… (changes topic by hurling insults***)
Look, the Second Amendment is clear. Our rights SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! Many of us were already upset over Trump’s ban on bump-stocks. Not that we necessarily want one… but that ban seems an awful lot like an infringement. (Not to mention the same effect can be achieved with a bent coat hanger or a belt loop…)
Is the government going to turn on us and attack us one day? Probably not. Hopefully not. Especially knowing what insane technology our military possesses. (And try not to think about all the top-secret stuff the public doesn’t know about…)
But it unfortunately IS a possibility. We are so quick to forget what happened just a few hundred years ago. Or what has happened in other countries that have been disarmed within the last 100 years…
We need to tell our Republican representatives that this is wrong and cannot be signed into law. It’s time to keep ourselves protected. This is a slippery slope, folks.
Molon labe. Come and take them.
