Liberals need to approach gun control how conservatives approach abortion.
It’s time to repeal the 2nd amendment, launch a federal buyback program, and criminalize possession of nearly all guns except a very limited few. Any other position from closing gun show loopholes to universal background checks should be the compromise position that is barely acceptable.
The NRA says “the democrats want to take away your guns” and our response is “no, that’s hyperbolic.”
It’s about time we say “ yes we are going to take them because there’s no God damn good reason for anyone to own the type of weaponry being used in these terrorist attacks.” It’s about damn time that we start pushing our candidates to be the candidates that gun manufacturers are afraid of.
The fact is that we can no longer negotiate with a very small percentage of the population obsessed with guns because of their low self-esteem, fear of the outside world, and because they are easily manipulated by gun manufacturers/lobbyists who only care about profits.
This small group of conservatives live in a terrible fantasy world.
A world where immigrants are drug dealers and rapists and somehow can also steal your job. A world where using go fund me to pay for healthcare is better than a public option. A world where the decision to have an abortion is somehow easy. And finally a world where everyone needs a gun because everyone is trying to kill you.
These conservatives live in a world that is very scary but fortunately not real. However their fear is creating that reality because we refuse to push back. For some reason we are adamant about trying to negotiate with this small group of people.
Well I’m done negotiating with cowards and the manufacturers & lobbyists who make money off their insecurity. Repeal the second amendment and get rid of these guns.
