The left will not stop until all of your guns are confiscated.
Some of them just come out and say it.
Now far-left filmmaker Michael Moore came up with an insane gun control plan.
In light of recent horrific mass shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde, and Highland Park, Democrats have renewed their calls for more gun control.
And few have been flapping their gums louder than socialist documentary filmmaker Michael Moore.
Building off his Bowling for Columbine gun control argument, Moore has a new radical proposal: a new constitutional amendment.
More drafted a fake 28th Amendment that would repeal the 2nd and usher in the Democrats’ gun control fantasies.
The “amendment” begins, “The inalienable right of a free people to be kept safe from gun violence and the fear thereof must not be infringed and shall be protected by the Congress and the States. This Amendment thus repeals and replaces the Second Amendment.”
Where Democrats see safety, sane people see state control.
The federal government cannot keep people “safe” from gun violence without becoming authoritarian, which is what leftists want.
They believe the state should have as much power as possible, and stubborn gun owners are standing in the way.
Moore continued, “Congress shall create a mandatory system of firearm registration and licensing for the following limited purposes: (a) licensed hunters of game; (b) licensed ranges for the sport of target shooting; and (c) for the few who can demonstrate a special need for personal protection. All who seek a firearm will undergo a strict vetting process with a thorough background check, including the written and confidential approval of family members, spouses and ex-spouses and/or partners and ex-partners, co-workers and neighbors. A mental health check will also be required. There will be a waiting period of one month to complete the full background check.”
Moore fails to understand how insane of an infringement to personality liberty that is.
Even left-wing legal organizations admit that harsh gun control laws negatively affect “marginalized” groups.
The unintended consequence of harsher gun control laws would be more black and brown people in jail, which is what happened after the Congressional Black Caucus pushed for harsher punishments for crack in the 1980s because the drug was ravishing their communities.
Now the CBC and other leftists complain about mass incarceration and disproportionate sentences for crack and powder cocaine.
The following firearms are heretofore banned:
- All automatic and semi-automatic weapons and all devices which can enable a single-shot gun to fire automatically or semi-automatically;
- Any weapon that can hold more than six bullets or rounds at a time or any magazine that holds more than six bullets;
- All guns made of plastic or any homemade equipment and machinery or a 3D printer that can make a gun or weapon that can take a human life.
So Moore wants to take 90% of the guns off the market as well as 3D printers, which have other uses beyond making guns.
This is completely detached from reality.
Moore concluded his amendment by declaring that all banned guns would be rounded up by local law enforcement.
Moore is essentially calling for the destruction of the United States.
The Democrats have completely lost the plot.
