Instead of being repulsed by guns, as the left demanded, we took gun purchases to record highs after Sandy Hook, higher than any time during the gun crazed Obama years.
Newtown, CT – 15 December 2012 was the day after twenty children and six female educators were murdered in the federally-mandated gun free zone of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Four years ago today statist tyrants of the progressive left were giddy over their assumption gun ban legislation would sweep through congress, be signed by a president eager to disarm lawful Americans, and effectively erase the Second Amendment.
Months passed as our nation struggled with the magnitude of this unimaginable yet completely avoidable tragedy.
Instead of gun control, gun ownership proliferated throughout the nation as Americans overwhelmingly rejected our government’s assertion that guns, not evil people, were the problem.
Regardless of their arguments progressives and statists could not convince the American people that disarming was conducive to our safety.
Instead of being repulsed by guns, as the left demanded, we took gun purchases to record highs after Sandy Hook, higher than any time during the gun crazed Obama years, as women gun owners became the fastest growing segment in the firearms industry.
Then came the 2016 Presidential election. With it the regurgitated mantra that Hillary Clinton, the nation’s most anti-gun political dinosaur, would become the undisputed President-elect.
Gun culture braced for another war on our natural human rights to self defense from criminal deadly force.
Progressives again sharpened their legislative pencils on the expectation Hillary would be President, only to be plowed under by the dreadnought of Donald Trump’s America First agenda.
After the election freedom advocates breathed a sigh of relief that, for the second time since Sandy Hook, a civil war over guns and natural human rights was avoided.
Civilian and veteran-owned battle ready load outs of assault rifles, gun belts, plate carriers, DBAL, NODs, IFAKs and maxed out chest rigs were downgraded in ‘threat level’.
Tactical shotguns came out of hiding to relieve AR and AK rifles as home invasions, not a war with the gun-grabbing Clinton administration, became the most likely criminal encounter for armed Americans.
The sociopolitical defeat of Hillary Clinton, and thousands of Marxist and Islamists she would have empowered, meant the threat of civil conflict over our natural human right to possess firearms was, at least for the moment, over.
Now, with Obama’s illegal executive orders and political legacy facing summary execution by President Trump, gun owners have a rare opportunity to reclaim decades of transgressions against our rights, starting with an end to government-mandated kill houses known as “gun free zones”.
Just as the Trump Administration is America’s last opportunity to handicap progressive liberalism, by deporting millions of Democrat-voting illegals and non-citizens who hate America, it is also a chance, perhaps our last, to hold our incoming president to his word over ending the US government’s unconstitutional ban on self defense wherever we, as free Americans in our free country, find ourselves.
