The Texas elementary school shooting in Uvalde served as the impetus for the Democrats’ most recent anti-gun effort. It disturbed the conscience that a person could indiscriminately murder little children.
However, the 18-year-old gunman was mad. The local police also failed miserably to enter the classroom where he was hiding.
Despite this, Democrats want to prohibit firearms. They have always had. Because only a well-armed citizenry can oppose tyranny, and tyranny is what socialist Democrats seek to achieve.
The Democrats desire ultimate control over American individuals. Total. Without any resistance.
There are now some Republicans who support the Democratic idea to disarm Americans.
The bipartisan gun legislation passed by Congress near the end of June includes enhanced background checks for potential buyers under the age of 21, provides millions of dollars for states to implement what are known as “red flag” laws that are designed to keep guns out of the hands of people deemed to be dangerous by the courts, and strengthens laws against straw purchasing and trafficking of guns.
However, the July 4th shooting called into question the effectiveness of Illinois’ strict firearm laws, particularly its “red flag” laws since the 21-year-old alleged killer Robert E. Crimo III had a troubled history and still obtained the firearms legally.
Now that Biden has signed the measure into law, we’re stuck with it. And Republicans contributed.
However, one Republican candidate is fighting for our Second Amendment rights.
Arizona congressional candidate Jerone Davison claims he needs an AR-15 to defend himself against “a dozen enraged Democrats in Klan masks.”
‘Democrats like to say that no one needs an AR-15 for self-defense. That no one could all 30 rounds. But with this rifle is the only thing standing between your family and a dozen angry Democrats in Klan hoods – you might just need that semi-automatic, and all 3 rounds,’ Davison asays in the absolutely awesome ad.
The Republican from Arizona tweeted, ‘Make Rifles Great Again.’
Klan members adorned with donkey insignia assault the candidate’s property at this location.
There is no gunshot in the advertisement, but the final shot depicts an unbloodied Klan hood floating in a swimming pool.
Make Rifles Great Again 💪🏿

Republican Missouri Senate candidate Eric Greitens’ video declaring he was going ‘RINO hunting’ was followed on Wednesday by another one depicting him shooting at explosives.

As the nation reels from mass shootings, including the one at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, and the one in Highland Park on Monday, pro-gun messages are taking center stage.
Uvalde prompted Congress to pass the first comprehensive gun control legislation in over 30 years.
The Democrats, however, wanted to take those laws one step further, with Vice President Kamala Harris calling for the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004, to be reimplemented.
In the post-Civil War south, the Democratic Party was historically aligned with the racist Ku Klux Klan. CONTINUE READING…
