Democratic leaders have long held an unconscionable belief that the Second Amendment should be repealed, repelled, or replaced.
The idea runs so deep within the party that now-defunct 2020 candidates had been making the Second Amendment their thing out on the campaign trail. Both Rep. Eric Swalwell and former El Paso political Beto O’Rourke intimated that they would be supportive of mandatory “buybacks” for wha they repeatedly called “weapons of war”; pistol-caliber rifles commonly referred to as “assault rifles” – which is only a slightly less dramatic overstatement of reality.
The idea of mandatory buybacks has always been on the fringes of the leftist doctrine, but has gained favor in recent years after the Democratic party and mainstream media colluded to exploit a string of tragic mass shootings in order to push their gun control agenda.
But just how absurd is the idea that the government is going to send someone to your door to take your guns and give you cash in exchange?
Judging by the reaction of the people of Wisconsin, it’s pretty darn absurd.
On Thursday, Velshi sat down with a panel of eight gun owners in Beaver Dam, Wisc., and asked them about the popular progressive policy.
“Let me ask you about a proposal that’s been floated out there by a presidential candidate or more about gun buybacks,” Velshi said. “Who thinks that’s a good idea?”
That sparked audible laughs and chuckles from the panel.
“I just bought mine for a million bucks, so if they’re willing to pay me that…” one gun owner told Velshi.
The Second Amendment could very well find itself as one of the major issues in the 2020 election, at least once Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell swiftly puts this impeachment nonsense to bed.
