While Americans are distracted, Democrats have launched a full-blown assault on gun rights


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), the infamous congressman who actually thought that Guam could tip over due to overpopulation, has submitted a beauty for an anti-gun, 2nd Amendment gutting piece of legislation.

The bill is known as H.R. 5717, the “Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020. There is a companion Senate bill, S-3254 that was introduced by Pocahontas Warren by the same name. 

If you don’t remember Johnson, here’s a highlight…a stone-cold genius:


According to the Firearms Policy Coalition, these bills are basically a “Gunpocalypse.” This is Michael Bloomberg’s wet dream. Here are some of the “highlights”:

-Create a nationwide gun registry

-Universal background checks

-Seven day waiting period for gun purchases

-Ban almost all semi-automatic rifles

-Institute a federal magazine ban

-Implement national “Red Flag” gun confiscation

-Tax guns at 30% and ammunition at 50%

-Ban people under 21 from exercising their Second Amendment Rights (keep in mind, Pelosi wants to lower the voting age to 16)

-Ration guns by making it illegal to purchase more than one firearm in a 30-day period

-Force “Safe Storage” requirements on gun owners

-Ban home builds

-Ban suppressors

-Force FFL’s to spend massive amounts of money to comply with new “security requirements

-Expand “Gun Free Zones

Establish a national database of gun owners

That is not even the worst of it. FPB reports that HR5717 would require gun owners to obtain a permit from the government to purchase guns and ammo. In addition, in order to obtain this “permit,” gun owners would be required to submit to a live-fire exercise.


Now the tricky part. How can one participate in a “live-fire” exercise if that’s a requirement to purchase a gun in the first place? This legislation basically makes it impossible to purchase a gun as a first-time buyer.

Think about this. The government is certainly not going to provide guns and ammunition for first-time gun buyers. See where this is going?

The legislation would also repeal the law which excludes product liability for firearm manufacturers when weapons are used in the commission of a crime.

So here we are, in the middle of a national crisis, where politicians are actively releasing criminals OUT of prison, and they are trying to push a law that will make it impossible for people to defend themselves.

The proposed bill only has fifteen sponsors currently, but a few of them are the all-stars of the left-wing moonbat contingent of  Congress- Kennedy, Keating, Lynch, Moulton, Trahan, Clark, Neal, McGovern, and Pressley of MA, DeLauro of CT, Maloney of NY, Norton-Holmes of Washington, DC. Massachusetts seems to be overpopulated with a bunch of anti-gun nutjobs.

The senate bill was just introduced on February 5 and referred to the finance committee. It currently has three co-sponsors: Markey of MA, and Booker and Menendez of NJ. There is currently no text in the companion senate bill.

You really need to hand it to the Democrats. While the American people are concerned about their health and distracted by the coronavirus, the Democrats proposed the most sweeping anti-gun legislation in American history.

It’s like the old adage, and one Law Enforcement Today has been warning about…when politicians, especially liberal ones are holding something in their left hand, in this case the coronavirus, watch out what they have in their right.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of sheep out there who will believe these congressmen when they claim they are trying to keep them “safe.” As we have seen with the coronavirus panic, people are literally losing their shit waiting to see what the “government” is going to do for them. 

As always, you have the gun-grabbing radicals on the Democratic side of the aisle who are more than willing to capitalize on the fear and panic which was pretty much created by them and a complicit media in the first place.

At a time when law enforcement is going to be compromised such as at no other time in our history, people will need to have the ability to defend themselves.

We have already seen where governors in some states, such as California have deemed gun sales as “non-essential” while they are releasing prisoners from jail to protect THEM from coronavirus. Who is going to protect the citizens from the criminals if the police are unable to help them?

Think about this. The police are just as susceptible to getting the coronavirus as anyone. Add to that the fact that first responders are going to be tied up helping people who get sick, there are simply not going to be enough police on the streets to handle the volume of calls, especially in larger cities.

While this law has zero chance of passing at this time, mostly due to the fact that thankfully politicians are tied up with the coronavirus pandemic, it will still be sitting there.

That is why this upcoming November’s election is so important. There is no chance this kind of bill will pass a Republican controlled Senate and a Republican president. It’s not going to happen, at least not now.

But what happens if for some reason the Democrats happen to get control of the Senate? And the White House? Scary times people.

We are in a fight for the soul of America right now. All you need to look at is how the Democrats in the House tried to take advantage of the coronavirus stimulus package to sneak in a laundry list of left wing, progressive programs, from election “reform” to portions of the Green New Deal to giving stimulus funds to Planned Parenthood so they can keep killing babies.

Thankfully people were paying attention. But now is not the time to take our eyes off the ball. The Democrats will keep coming back and chipping away at our liberty. These two gun bills are but just a preliminary attack on our rights.
