The Second Amendment impenetrable verbiage is no mistake, that’s for certain.
The Founding Fathers understood explicitly just how powerful their words would need to be to stand up to future tyrants that they could only imagine. Washington and his cohorts had just defeated what, at the time, was the world’s most advanced and enormous military force, and they did so with muskets and minutemen.
In order for this nation to preserve what they fought to earn, bold and decisive lines would have to be drawn in the figurative sand.
This is why the Second Amendment shall not be infringed – because any weakening of the right to bear arms would make the nation yet again susceptible to tyranny.
Modern day Democrats understand that a full repeal of the inalienable right in nigh impossible, and have chosen to attack the Second Amendment in a different way – by making it an expensive hassle to exercise this right.
Current 2020 frontrunner Liz Warren seems dedicated to this method of infringement as well, as she looks to increase taxes for those hoping to own and maintain their firearms.
Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren wants to use federal excise taxes to reduce gun and ammunition sales.
Her gun control, made public in August on Medium, shows Warren believes the current ten percent excise tax on firearms is too low. She wants to raise that tax to 30 percent while increasing the tax on ammunition to 50 percent.
Because excise taxes are paid directly by the consumer–the taxes are added to the price of the goods–this means a $500 gun would immediately cost $515 and the price for a $20 box of ammo would immediately rise to $30.
Warren has said that these increased taxes would then be used for gun crime prevention programs, but fails to recognize that the increased taxes are also meant to reduce gun ownership and use.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
