I applaud principled companies in the firearms industry for making a lawful stand against tyranny. The only thing that makes us different from the rest of the world is that our system does not relegate ordinary citizens to second or third class status. Consider one of the influential people at the forefront of the effort to disarm America. By the standards of our Founders, he would be considered a tyrant. He used wealth and influence to negate a term limit law for the mayoral office of NYC that he might have even been involved in establishing-----I am not sure.
If free, law-abiding, competent citizens are debarred the use of assault-style rifles and high capacity magazines then no one should be privy to their use. Criminals have never cared, do not care now and will never care about obeying the law. If they did, they wouldn't be criminals in the first place.
I am all for greater scrutiny of citizens with regards to gun purchases. I am all for requiring background checks on all transfers private or commercial outside of family heirlooms. I do not think anyone legally prescribed certain classes of drugs should be able to own a firearm. In fact I am certain they should not be.
Certain firearms manufacturers are not attacking our men and women in blue. They are fighting to stand in the gap against politicians who think they give people rights when in fact these freedoms are endowed by God and recognized by our foundation for self-governance.
If you are upset with what is happening then make a sensible, lawful and principled stand for the tax payers who provide the infrastructure for you to pursue you passion in the first place. We did build this-----not the government.
In the heat of this debate, don't forget those currently in power seek to divide us. They purpose to divide and conquer. Whether you agree or disagree with me, I think you will agree we all need to a step back and take a deep breath. Look at the news cycle. For the last four years, we have been kept in edge constantly. Make no mistake this is by design from people who do not believe we are exceptional----people who want us no different than other socialist Euro States. We cannot allow ourselves to be their pawns until this passes.
