“Now it’s incumbent on pro-gun advocates to block any further advance and remind the American people that gun control belongs in the political scrap heap.”
Compromise on our Second Amendment is not blocking. It is the road to advancing the goals of those whose goal is to disarm law-abiding citizens.
Anti-gun zealots have shown they will stop at nothing to destroy the private of ownership of firearms in America, even if it means exploiting terrified children for political gain (the tactic used by gun grabbers in the aftermath of the horrific attack in Parkland, FL). By exploiting the naivety of the massacre’s youthful victims, and preying on their need to feel safe with anti-gun propaganda, a group of gun control advocates succeeded in making their movement relevant.
Anti-gun groups were also able to trick people into supporting the passage of so-called “red flag” bills and other gun control schemes by utilizing a complicit establishment media to beam the image of terrified and victimized children into America’s homes – an act that was devoid of human decency, and made worse because it was done with full knowledge that none of the schemes will stop another Parkland attack.
The disgusting exploitation of young Americans trying to find their political voice also allowed the anti-gun movement a significance they haven’t enjoyed since the passage of the Clinton Assault Weapons Ban.
