Liberal extremists appear unable to keep their powder dry after learning gun ownership is roundly embraced by patriotic Americans from all walks of life. In fact, left-wing activists at The Economist were crestfallen to discover that a growing number of women, African-Americans, and Latinos are buying guns at a break-neck pace. For Democrats who want the population to fear the government, instead of the other way around, rising firearm ownership strikes a blow against “gun control.”
“Of the 7.5m Americans who bought firearms for the first time between January 2019 and April 2021 — as gun-buying surged nationwide — half were female, a fifth black and a fifth Hispanic, according to a recent study by Matthew Miller of Northeastern University and his co-authors. The share of black adults who joined the gun-owning ranks, 5.3 percent, was more than twice that of white adults,” The Economist reportedly states.
The Economist mentioned that people “are more politically active around gun issues than non-owners,” and diversity is “bad for gun-control advocates.” Despite the diversity of Second Amendment advocates, progressives pretending to support people of color launched a smear campaign against firearm manufacturers.
A bush-league gun-grab organization currently calling itself Brady United Against Gun Violence (Brady) recently brought a platform called The Gun Store Transparency Project online. Claiming “the American public will no longer be kept in the dark about businesses that contribute to gun violence in their communities, and whether federal authorities are failing to hold them accountable,” the anti-2A organization ignores credible data and pushes disinformation about inspection reports and how criminals get guns.
“As much as Brady may hate the idea, commerce in firearms is a legitimate, constitutionally protected business in the United States,” the NRA-ILA reportedly states. “There is nothing inherently shady or suspect about it, and members of the firearm industry should not be portrayed as criminals or public menaces for every mistake that winds up on a bureaucratic report.
To say Joe Biden is a blundering, lead-from-behind “surrender-in-chief” would be nothing short of an understatement. After the humiliating and unnecessary botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden recently got taken out to the woodshed by Russian strongman Vladimir Putin. The former KGB operative, who ascended to the Kremlin, appears to have baited Joe Biden into showing his hand with regard to Ukraine. Once Biden confessed he would essentially sit on his hands — just like he and Obama did when Putin rolled tanks across Crimea — the Russian military got the green light. Now more than 100,000 determined Russian troops are positioned at Ukraine’s border, and Putin will unilaterally decide the outcome.
Reports now indicate the weakling occupying the White House is wagging his finger about “sanctions” as weapons are being shipped to bolster Ukrainian forces. Upwards of $200 million in anti-armor missiles, ammunition, and other U.S. equipment are reportedly on their way to Ukraine. Interestingly, the Biden Administration froze a deal brokered by former Pres. Donald J. Trump that allowed Ukraine to purchase more than $100 million in what left-wing media outlets called “lethal aid” at the time.
The fiscal 2022 National Defense Authorization Act reportedly includes $300 million in U.S. military assistance to Ukraine this year and a minimum of $75 million in “lethal aid.” The reversal may be too little, too late as pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine are prepared to disrupt defenses should Putin’s roll tanks in the region, again.
With the White House putting a reported 8,500 troops on heightened alert, polling data overwhelmingly shows Americans want no part of the Eastern Bloc land and political squabble. A Convention of States Action poll conducted in partnership with the Trafalgar Group indicates fewer than 1 in 6 Americans want boots-on-the-ground troops or advisors involved in the Ukraine-Russia dustup. And almost 70 percent do not want taxpayer dollars used to send weapons to Ukraine.
It’s almost ironic that Joe Biden is willing to hand people in other countries firearms while signing executive orders to strip Americans of their 2A rights.
