    If Democrats win control of both the Senate and the presidency, the legislation they will pass and the judges that they will appoint will eventually lead to guns being banned in the United States.

    Gun control advocates will dismiss this as scaremongering, but things are different this time.

    Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Senate Democratic leaders all promise to eliminate the filibuster. That would radically transform the Senate, affect which legislation can be passed and let them pack the courts.

    Any gun owner who votes for Biden is an idiot. Period.

    I saw one such person on twitter yesterday.....a Veteran and gun owner who hated Trump and was voting Biden.

    I have a bad feeling there are tons of these idiots floating around out there.

    In Nazi Germany there probably were Jews that voted for Hitler. Many probably thought they had social status to be above the fray. They found out the truth later, on the way to the rail stations.

    You also have to realize that stupid has no relationship to IQ......and neither have anything to do with common sense. :fred:

    This is the age where feelings and emotions supersede reason and logic. There’s no doubt that idiots like you described are abundant.

    Some pro gun people have so much hate for Trump that they are blinded to what their vote is going to to to the 2A.

    Believe me, I know quite a few people like this......even some buying their first gun, because they are afraid of the current violent environment.

    They just can't see where this is headed.

    If you are a gun owner voting DEMOCRAT at any level, you will not be a gun owner very long. The upside is you will NOT have to worry about an ammo shortage.

    I think we worry about 2A as much as the leftists love killing their babies. It’s true that if the Dems win the Senate, House, and Oval Office, they could conceivably stack more justices on Scotus and then pass whatever draconian legislation they want. I’m not sure they could do an amendment undoing the 2A entirely, but it certainly would be a shell of itself.

    In my mind, that’s all folks. Time to pick an area of the country and consolidate conservatives there and wave adios to the US. That’s why it’s crucial we maintain control of one of those organizations. My heart tells me the libs will get spanked because of the dirty politics and riots of the last 4 years. What worries me is the extension of the mail in ballots in 3 critical swing states. Trump can win without PA, WI, and MI, but probably needs at least 1 of them.

    And the same goes for any gun owner who refuses to vote for the ONLY candidate who can defeat Biden and I won't name names but there are about 5 of them on this forum.

    If they do that, then it's going to get ugly.

    Call me crazy, but undoing the 2A will be the action that destabilizes the country. People just won't stand for it, the violence will be astounding, unlike anything we've seen since the Civil War.

    People are losing their minds over face masks, imagine what's going to happen over guns if they're outlawed. I think you'd see quite a few red-state Governers saying "Hell no, come and take them!" and then taking decisive action to shut down any attempt at confiscation. Like using the National Guard to prevent confiscation, forming local militias, the whole shebang-a-bang!

    Look at what happened in VA, the vast majority of the state declared themselves 2A sanctuaries, lots of sheriff's said no way, and people were threatening to take action on their own.
