John Adams’ observation that “Liberty, once lost, is lost forever” has mostly held true in human history, but not so for the Second Amendment, which, having been ignored, redefined and abused by the political class, has recently been resurrected by the people, thanks in no small part to their association with the NRA.
We have reached what should prove to be an infamous moment. The 2020 Democrat Party presidential ticket will be the first in American history to feature a candidate who openly supports the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens.
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) has renewed his call for the confiscation of American citizens' legally purchased and owned semi-automatic rifles, pistols and shotguns.
With the selection of Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) to join presidential nominee Joe Biden as his pick for vice president, the 2020 Democratic ticket has achieved the dubious “honor” of being the most anti-gun presidential ticket in the history of the United States.
Joe Biden has consistently argued that American citizens don’t have a right to buy and use semi-automatic AR-15 and AR-10 rifles.

The framers of the Constitution “knew what emergencies were, knew the pressures they engender for authoritative action, knew, too, how they afford a ready pretext for usurpation.”
