America has seen political realignment several times in history before — but it’s never been quite like this.
To clarify, we’re not subscribed to the idea held by contemporary academics that Republicans and Democrats kindly agreed to just switch platforms when Barry Goldwater ran for president — or after the Civil Rights Act was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Because that isn’t true. What actually happened was that there was a major schism within the Democratic Party based on region, and the GOP simply seized the opportunity to finally break the deep blue South.
What we’re referring to here is that the slow death of the Democratic Party’s gun control obsession is finally coming into fruition.
As we’ve reported numerous times, sales for firearms, ammunition, and supporting gear have spiked harder than they ever have in generations. Considering the number of buyers listing themselves as “new”, it’s clear that this is a bipartisan phenomenon. And it makes sense — people would be foolish not to look into home defense while their police departments are being defunded.
If you can get over the profanity-ridden rant below, you can see just how incredible this moment in time is for the gun rights community. Lifelong Democratic voters — many of whom may have donated to groups like Everytown USA or other anti-2A initiatives — are dropping the pacifist act and getting strapped.
How can you blame them? Rioters and other political agitators have made it clear that they do not care if you’re on their side or not. If you are perceived to hold any sort of societal “privilege” — be it real or imagined — you can easily be a target of their outrage. Fortunately, people seem to care more about their families and property than they do with appearing “woke” enough for their political allies.
So, with forced government lockdowns, police departments being defunded, and violent demonstrators given the green light to thrash about as they wish, 2020 could finally be the year where gun control dies.
And, we’ll be the first to say: “good riddance.”
