36% of Democrats Support Confiscating Guns From Law Abiding Patriots

The Overton window on gun rights in the Democratic Party is moving left, fast.

New polling has revealed that almost 40% of Democrats now support national gun confiscation similar to the plans proposed by Democrats such as Beto O’Rourke.

A Zogby Analytics survey polled earlier this month reveals that 36% of Democrats support confiscating firearms from law-abiding gun owners.

Such a concept would have seemed incomprehensible even for many progressive Democrats several months ago, but long-shot Democratic campaigns for the presidency centered around gun control appear to have helped normalize it in the party. Beto O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell both campaigned openly on the notion of confiscating semiautomatic firearms from lawful gun owners.

Attempts to take Americans’ personal weapons on an arbitrary basis would likely create legal and societal chaos throughout the United States, but a sizable portion of the Democratic Party base doesn’t seem to care. Law enforcement agencies and sheriff’s departments in rural, conservative areas of the country have already come out in staunch opposition to any attempt to enforce gun confiscation.

Perhaps even more shockingly, the Zogby Analytics poll revealed that 39% of Democrats fully support decriminalizing crossing the United States’ borders without authorization. Such a policy position is tantamount to open borders, even if progressives who advocate for it are afraid to admit it.

The poll also revealed significant support for several other surprisingly left-wing policies. Democratic Presidential candidates don’t usually argue for funding healthcare programs for illegal immigrants openly, but it seems apparent that many of their voters actually support such a proposal.

443 likely Democratic primary voters were polled to compile the survey’s data, providing a sample size of significance.

36% is far from a majority, but considering such a policy proposal was all but unheard of just earlier this year, it’s more than possible that national gun confiscation will become a staple policy of the Democratic Party’s policy platform within the next few years.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
