Back in March we were told we needed to sacrifice our rights and our businesses to slow the spread of the most deadly and contagious virus we’ve seen in our lifetime.
15 days to slow the spread.
We are now approaching the end of August and, while the experts’ predictions have all been proven wrong, we are no closer to the end of this massive violation of our rights.
Businesses are still being shut down. Many will not open back up. Mayors and governors across the country have used this pandemic to mount an unprecedented attack on the Bill of Rights. We’ve seen Democrat mayors and governors restrict the ability to purchase guns. They’ve also restricted the ability to sell guns.
15 days to slow the spread was just the test. Americans failed that test. However, if you're a tyrant, the test was a success.
We've cooperatively given up our abilities to open up a business, patronize certain businesses, go to church, or even go to a park, lake, or beach. We've been told, in some cities, that we cannot be out after 8 or 9pm. Heck, in some of those cities you wouldn't want to anyway but that ought to be your choice.
Political elites tell you to do one thing while they do another.
They've held massive funerals for George Floyd, not David Dorn, and John Lewis. They've convinced people that riots and protests for certain political issues aren't dangerous but pro-gun or any type of conservative get-together is a danger.
We've gone along with it.
Many of my friends who've had loved ones die during this time were unable to hold a real celebration of life, or funeral, for those they love most.
In Texas, you must wear a mask in order to go to the grocery store or a restaurant.
Just like 15 days to slow the spread was just the first step, so is each little invasion on your right to own a gun.
It will never stop with "just a little better background check" or a "higher tax on ammunition and gun parts" or a "10 round magazine maximum".
The political elite will take it as far as we let them. And we've just shown them our hand.
With Biden and Harris being likely the most anti-gun ticket in history, we are going to have a choice to make this November. They've already told you they want your guns and that nobody should have "assault rifles" or large magazines.
Imagine what they haven't told you.
You had better organize, mobilize, and vote come November as if your rights depend on it. They do. Sure, they say this every 4 years but we've never seen anything like this in our lifetime. This is an all out power grab by people who are terrified of losing their power.
Let's hope we score better on our November test than we have over the last 5-6 months.
