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.

2.5 Million Guns Sold In March, SMASHING Previous US Record For Gun Buys

Americans want their guns.

Published

on

Federal firearms licensees sold more than 2.5 million guns to the American public in March 2020, easily smashing the previously held record for the most gun sales in an individual month by more than a million transactions.

The gun sale data has been gauged by Small Arms Analytics, and the estimation of a total of 2,583,238 sales has been pulled from raw FBI National Instant Criminal Background Checks System data. It’s actually possible that the total figure of guns sales is a bit higher, considering gun sales between private individuals are not subject to the NICS system.

Not only does the figure of 2.5 million gun sales surpass the previous monthly record holder from March 2019, but it does so in a resounding fashion. 1.4 million guns were sold in that month, meaning that March 2020 surpassed the record by approximately 1.1 million sales.

A breakdown of the sales between long guns and handguns was provided by Small Arms Analytics. Handgun sales in particular spiked exponentially, easily surpassing previous quarterly highs in gun sales that preceded major American elections.

An alternate system of quantifying gun purchases utilized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation verified that March was in fact a record-setting month for gun sales.

The surge in gun and ammunition sales in the wake of the nascent Chinese coronavirus epidemic is well documented at this point, with gun and ammunition retailers reporting selling out their entire inventories and still not coming close to meeting demand.

As Americans arm themselves in unprecedented record-setting numbers, some major American municipalities and states have taken it upon themselves to wholly shut down the lawful firearms commerce and manufacturing industries. However, several of them have been stopped cold in their tracks, in light of federal guidelines from the Trump administration that recognizes businesses serving the Second Amendment community as “essential.”

New Jersey and Los Angeles County are among the two biggest governmental entities forced to walk back arbitrary commands that gun stores close in light of the guidelines.

Dubious state of emergency declarations that try to implement backdoor gun control in a hour where more Americans are seeking to lawfully arm themselves than ever before simply aren’t going to work, judging from historical amounts of armaments freedom-loving patriots have secured in the last month alone.
