Prominent Democrat politicians in response to calls that the party of slavery is coming for your gun rights, love to say, “Nobody is coming for your guns,” in an attempt to make it seem like the critics are the radicals. The reality? They’re coming for your guns.
The Second Amendment basically says that the federal government may not even have a conversation on gun rights. I don’t give a darn how many courts have taken up the matter, that’s what it says. “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” still means something even in 2021. Democrats love to ignore that or to throw out misinformation about what that clause in the Second Amendment means when they try to implement laws that further erode your right to protect yourself and your loved ones. Yet even a third-grader can tell you that it means that anything that the government does to infringe on a person’s right to carry and own a gun is not allowed.
The Democrats have demonstrated time and time again that they will not adhere to laws that are already on the books if they go against their ideology. Think about how Democrat cities created sanctuaries for illegal aliens including criminal illegal aliens, and the leaders of those Democrat-run cities ordered their people to not work with federal agencies to help capture and deport criminal illegal aliens at the expense of American citizens having to live among them.
On Tuesday, Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill that would ban local governments and government employees from enforcing or aiding any federal government infringements imposed on gun rights.
House Bill 2111 was passed by the Arizona House and Senate in an attempt to ignore any new regulation of gun control by the Biden administration.
“The state of Arizona and its political subdivisions are prohibited from utilizing any financial resources or state personnel to administer, cooperate with or enforce any law, act, order, rule, treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with any law of this state regarding the regulation of firearms,” read the text of the legislation.
This is different from immigration because the Constitution gives the federal government sole authority over immigration and sanctuary cities were violating federal immigration laws. But we have to have our priorities straight here to understand what’s really going on. Any attempt to infringe on gun rights by the Biden administration or anyone else for that matter is a clear violation of Constitutional law. There is a huge difference between local and state Democrats ignoring federal laws on immigration and conservative Republicans trying to protect the Constitutional rights of their citizens from an out-of-control radical federal government, which is what we have right now.
Biden has vowed to push for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines after the Colorado shootings.
Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, a Democrat, has denounced the Arizona bill saying there was a “political motivation” behind it. Personally, I don’t care what was behind it. They’re trying to protect American citizens’ Constitutional rights to protect themselves.
On Thursday, Penzone told KTAR radio, “It’s one of those emotional issues, but as far as the impact on law enforcement, it will create confusion or challenges more than benefits or protecting the Second Amendment.” In other jurisdictions, Democrats felt little to no confusion that sanctuary cities caused. There were no emotional issues when city officials thwarted ICE attempts to capture criminal illegal aliens.
Other critics say that the law will lead to lawsuits and that taxpayers will be stuck paying the bills. Moms Demand Action, a pro-gun-control mob, got over 2,400 signatures opposing the bill and presented them to Ducey’s office hours before he signed it into law. Really? Well, I see their 2,400 signatures and raise them by over 5 million NRA members.

Democratic Arizona state Sen. Lisa Otondo assured gun owners that their rights were safe.
“Nobody is trying to take away your guns, not for the protection of your family, your property, nor your Second Amendment right to own them,” Otondo said. if she is against the bill, then she’s trying to take away your guns.
The bottom line is Democrats are trying to take away your guns. Fighting House Bill 2111 is proof of that.
