Everyone knows that the left and the Democrat Party wants to restrict the Second Amendment.
Usually, when they try, Second Amendment supporters stand up and stop them.
But that all could change after a major piece of gun control came down the pipe which could just be days away from becoming law.
With President Donald Trump being in office, our Second Amendment is more secure than it has been in a long time.
Trump promised to defend the Second Amendment on the campaign trail, and since being in office, he has followed through on that.
But there is a new push for gun control in Washington D.C. that may not be able to be stopped.
It comes in response to the proliferation of 3D printed plastic guns.
The guns themselves are not very practical, and are mostly created as an interesting project; but to liberals, it is the most insane thing that anybody has ever thought of creating.
So of course, they want to do anything they can to stop them from being legal to make.
To do that they have filed a bill, sponsored by Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) to ban the publishing of 3D printed gun files online.
It is actually a violation of both the Second, and First Amendments, as it blocks your freedom to publish information, as well as restricts one of your means to procure a firearm.
They attempted to pass it last week with a quick trick move, but it was shut down by pro-gun Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee.
But while Paul and Lee were standing up against it, the main reason this bill has a very high probability of being passed is who is refusing to fight it.
Those people are the gun industry and the National Rifle Association.
Left-wing news outlet Bloomberg has cited the gun industries lack of fighting against the bill as a major reason that it will likely pass.
That is very likely correct, but another reason it will likely pass is that the NRA doesn’t seem to care about fighting on this issue, and may even outright support the ban.
In a statement put out on their website, NRA Executive Director Chris Cox refused to take a direct position, instead claiming that the law is redundant, as a law that the NRA pushed forward has already banned “untraceable” firearms.
While it is unclear if that is actually true, the position they seem to be taking is of support for the gun control measure.
So if the gun industry and the NRA are not willing to stand up against this, it could very easily become law.
Thankfully, there are senators like Rand Paul and Mike Lee who are willing to fight it, and there are also groups like the National Association for Gun Rights who have made their opposition known.
President Trump has been very vague on this issue, not directly taking a side.
So only time will tell what will happen with this measure.
Do you think U.S. citizens should be allowed to 3D print guns?
