Democrats believe they are on the cusp of victory next year.
Liberals believe the American people are ready to turn on President Donald Trump.
But Democrats committed this giant mistake that just cost them the 2020 election.
The biggest political gift Donald Trump’s received this year is the leftward march of the Democrat Party.
Candidates running for President endorsed decriminalizing the act of illegal immigration, giving free healthcare to illegal immigrants and a government takeover of healthcare that would strip over 150 million Americans of their private health insurance.
But on no issue have the Democrats embraced a more radical agenda than on the Second Amendment.
Multiple mass shootings in Ohio and Texas during the month of August pushed Democrats to champion even more radical positions on banning and confiscating firearms.
Former Texas Congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke led the gun grabbing charge by promising to confiscate the millions of so-called “assault rifles” Americans own.
At a campaign event in Charlottesville, Virginia, O’Rourke was asked what he had to say to Americans that were worried if O’Rourke won the Presidency, he would order government agents to kick down doors and take Americans’ guns away.
O’Rourke didn’t mince words and told gun owners that if he wins the White House, the government is coming for their guns.
“I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do,” O’Rourke declared. “Americans who own AR-15s, AK-47s, will have to sell them to the government. We’re not going to allow them to stay on our streets, to show up in our communities, to be used against us in our synagogues, our churches, our mosques, our Walmarts, our public places.”
“All countries have video games. All countries struggle with mental health. All countries deal with hatred. But only America has more guns than human beings — 390 million firearms in a country of 329 million people — which kill nearly 40,000 people every year,” O’Rourke added. “That’s why, as president, I would institute a mandatory buyback of every assault weapon in America.”
O’Rourke is a fringe candidate struggling for oxygen in the Presidential race.
So it came as no surprise that O’Rourke seized on the gun issue to breathe life into a campaign resting on life support.
But even frontrunner Joe Biden – who is running as a supposed “electable moderate” proposed gun and ammo bans.
During a campaign swing through Cedar Rapids, Iowa the former Vice President claimed that not only did he want to ban so-called “assault weapons” but as President, he would also ban magazines that held multiple bullets.
“The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them,” Biden rambled. “It’s absolute mindless. It’s no violation of the Second Amendment. It’s just a bow to special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA.”
Guns are the third rail of American politics.
If you touch on this by trying to ban guns your political career dies.
Democrats need to win back rural voters in the Midwest where guns are popular.
If Democrats run on storming into homes and ripping guns out of the hands of America’s firearms owners, their chances of winning the White House in 2020 will plummet.
