Deep in a survey of likely voters is the startling fact that most people don’t realize Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee for president, is a gun-control extremist.
When a politician accuses America’s millions of lawful gun owners of having a “death cult mentality,” it’s tempting to not take them seriously. But when that politician is “hell yes we’ll take your AR-15” Beto O’Rourke, a person Joe Biden said he’d appoint to “take care of the gun problem,” it is worth taking his disturbing view of America very seriously.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has suspended his campaign, but Bernie said he will still use this process to attempt to “change America.” One of the fundamental changes Bernie wants is an end to our Second Amendment rights.
Those who don’t know New York state, as opposed to “the city that never sleeps,” might be surprised to learn that U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) old House district (NY 20) is mostly a bucolic mix of rolling hardwood hills and small towns separated by apple orchards, cornfields and horse farms.
The year 2020 will be remembered as one of many ups and downs, both for gun owners and for the country at large.
