Meghan McCain schools ‘The View’ on ugly reality of gun confiscation

The single most obvious disconnect between the Second Amendment and the gun-control lobby centers around just why we have the right to bear arms in the first place.

This inalienable rights, that shall not be infringed, is not for self-defense, target practice, or hunting – although it has certainly allowed for those activities to grow.  No, we were given the Second Amendment by our Founding Fathers so that we could fight back against anyone who would look to disarm us.  In their case, it was the British government.  In the future, however, this could be anyone, foreign or domestic.

The most basic analysis of the Second Amendment is that it exists to protect itself.  Should a government, any government, come to your door to disarm you, that is when the right to bear arms actually kicks in.

The liberal left certainly doesn’t understand this, and that has prompted Meghan McCain to enlighten her cohosts at The View.

McCain said, “The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America. … I was just in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, [and] if you’re talking about going and taking people’s guns away from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.”

Joy Behar responded by saying, “But they lived without them for many years during the ban.” (It appears Behar does not know the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban did not ban possession of AR-15s, AK-47s, and other commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles. Rather, it prevented the sale of such rifles if they had a collapsible stock, a thumbhole stock, a flash hider, etc.)

McCain responded to Behar by saying, “I’m not living without guns.”

The conversation was certainly timely, as a number of 2020 democratic candidates have expressed their desire for mandatory gun “buybacks” and other forms of confiscation.
