In his first statement following the shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, former President Obama has come forward with an aggressive plan for Democrats: Do more, and consider passing gun confiscation laws.
His response came in a Tweet, where the former President seems to blame President Donald Trump for the shooting in El Paso, regurgitating the same talking points that CNN has been spewing since the moment the shooting occurred. Not only that, but Obama seems to insinuate the the United States, which elected him, a black man, as President, is white supremacist, stating that the shooter acted to “preserve white supremacy.”
Until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening: https://t.co/reTnmcg3xo

But while his statement isn’t all that surprising. It is the article he posted in response that should really raise some eyebrows.
Obama posted an article from the far-left website Vox, where an author gives some suggestions to “stop gun violence.” The article claims that Democrats should go further than they currently are with their proposals, citing ideas like “universal background checks,” and “assault weapons bans” as not being enough.
Instead, the author says that Democrats should go all-out, citing the gun confiscation plan of former Presidential candidate Eric Swalwell as an example.
The Vox article reads:
“To change the status quo, Democrats should go big. They need to focus on the abundance of guns in the US and develop a suite of policies that directly tackle that issue, from licensing to confiscation to more aggressive bans of certain kinds of firearms (including, perhaps, all semiautomatic weapons or at least some types of handguns).”
While that drivel is unsurprising when coming from the “intellectual elites” at Vox. It is surprising that it is being shared approvingly by a former President, and especially from Obama, who still has a significant role in the Democrat Party.
But it isn’t very surprising that Democrats are wanting to go big on the issue. Instead of taking a hard-line issue in support of the Second Amendment, President Trump continues to waffle on the issue, supporting many of the gun control proposals that leading gun-rights activists have been warning about for years.
In a press conference following the shooting, Trump called for “universal background checks,” and “red flag” gun confiscation orders.
As Big League Politics‘ own Jose Nino explains, his proposals would have done nothing to stop the shooting in El Paso.
But what Trump’s calls for gun control, even what some would call minor gun control, does is give Democrats more ground in what is truly a war for the Second Amendment in the United States.
If President Trump wants to make a real difference in preventing mass shootings. He should considering removing gun free zones, considering that 98% of mass shootings occur in gun free zones, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center.
FLASHBACK: Kamala Harris Called Mandatory Gun “Buyback” Confiscation A “Good Idea”
She followed Beto O’Rourke’s lead.
During her failed campaign for the presidency, California Senator and newly minted Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris appeared to endorse Beto O’Rourke-style gun confiscation. Harris called the notion of mandatory “buyback” gun confiscations a “good idea” in an interview with Bloomberg News, following the lead of another Democratic contender, Beto O’Rourke.
Harris, who endorsed the policy when speaking after a campaign event in New Hampshire, qualified that additional details had to be resolved to enact mandatory buybacks, but made it clear she expressly supports the notion of mandatory confiscation buybacks.
“I think it’s a good idea… We have to work out the details — there are a lot of details — but I do,” responded Harris when asked about her potential support for Beto O’Rourke’s aggressive gun seizure agenda. “We have to take those guns off the streets,” she said of the millions of legally owned semiautomatic firearms in civilian hands.
Harris’ entry into the Democratic ticket possibly signals Joe Biden’s most cogent embrace of the gun confiscation policies long favored by the neoliberal extremist element of the Democratic Party, which go a step further than most liberal gun control policies in actively mandating that law-abiding patriots who own so-called “assault weapons” surrender their guns to the government.
Biden has previously stated that he plans on appointing Beto O’Rourke to “take care of the gun problem” in his administration when he’s office. He appears primed to surround himself with the most draconian anti-gun confiscation enthusiasts as President.
