Democrats are spewing the worst gun control hot takes ever.
Each time there is a horrifying mass shooting, they call for laws that would not have stopped the shooter.
And Michael Moore said something about guns that will leave you speechless.
In light of the tragic shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Democrats have renewed their calls for increased gun control.
Some on the left have called for universal background checks or raising the age to own a rifle to 21, two measures that would do nothing to curb statistically rare mass shootings with rifles.
But propaganda documentary filmmaker Michael Moore just blurted out what other liberals don’t want to say; Moore called for the abolition of the Second Amendment.
Moore said during an episode his podcast, “I know that there are Democratic Party leaders that do not want me saying this [because] we’re going to lose the election…I make no apologies for it because I understand the history of this country, and I don’t think we should be afraid to say this. Repeal the Second Amendment. Repeal the Second Amendment…That is it. That is what we need to do. We need to start a movement to repeal the Second Amendment and replace it with something that says it’s not about the right of somebody to own a gun, the right of all of us to be protected from gun violence. We have a right to live.”
In addition to being fundamentally un-American, Moore’s plan is nonsensical.
Moore and other liberals were big proponents of defunding the police, or abolishing the police altogether.
Presumably, the police would have to be the ones disarming over 100 million people, something that would be an absolute nightmare.
Moore says people have a “right to live,” but apparently they do not have a right to self-defense, as evidenced by the persecution of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Leftists don’t want people to be able to defend themselves against murderous left-wing mobs.
Moore added, “Nearly 70% of us do not own a firearm. We don’t own a gun. We are not a nation of gun owners. The 30% who do own a gun, most of them are law-abiding citizens. I don’t know what they think they are going to use that gun for. Those who are hunters, I understand that they like to hunt. Those who like to fire guns on shooting ranges, it’s fun to hit the target, great go for it, but we need to do what other countries do, where you store the gun at the gun club, at the gun range. You don’t want a gun in the house. If you’re afraid of somebody breaking in, get a dog. You don’t need a gun. You have a greater chance of harming yourself or others in your family with that gun in the house.”
This is pure progressive elitism.
People use guns for protection all the time, often without needing to fire a single round because guns are a useful deterrent.
One wonders if Moore’s Second Amendment repeal would apply to armed security forces that defend politicians, celebrities, and banks.
Establishment elites want total control of the population, and that cannot happen unless the public is disarmed.
