We can now count Bernie Sanders as a reliable foot soldier for the gun control agenda.
Since announcing his run for the U.S. Presidency, the Vermont Senator has been on Twitter laying out his campaign priorities.
In a recent tweet, Bernie Sanders towed the Democratic Party line on gun control.
Using the same epidemic language that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoked after President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Sanders has made it clear that gun control will be a key plank of his campaign.
I’m running for president because we must end the epidemic of gun violence in this country. We need to take on the NRA, expand background checks, end the gun show loophole and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons.
Ironically, Sanders received a lukewarm endorsement from NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre in the 1990s during one of Sanders’s congressional runs. LaPierre went as far as to say that “Bernie Sanders is a more honorable choice for Vermont sportsmen than Peter Smith.” This was in reference to the Republican incumbent’s decision to come out in favor of an assault weapons ban.
However, things have changed in recent times. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Sanders received a D- rating from the NRA. However, that was not enough for the likes of Hilary Clinton, who blasted him for not being sufficiently anti-gun throughout the 2016 Democratic primaries.
Clinton asserted that “When it really mattered, Senator Sanders voted with the gun lobby and I voted against the gun lobby,” which referenced a bill Sanders voted for that shielded gun manufacturers and sellers from legal liability due to firearm misusage.
Fast forward to 2019, Sanders is now faithfully following the gun control script. And it’s a sign of the times. His home state of Vermont has been taking an anti-gun course over the past few years. In 2018, Republican Governor Phil Scott signed S.55 into law, which includes bump stock ban, universal background checks, and red flag gun confiscation provisions.
As a self-proclaimed socialist, it is no surprise Sanders is now unabashedly supporting gun control. Socialists believe in control of all facets of human life, from business activities down to how people defend themselves.
At the end of the day, people won’t let others confiscate their private property without a fight. For that reason, socialists make sure to restrict firearm ownership as much possible to prevent uprisings.
Bernie Sanders can claim to be a democratic socialist all he wants, but his proposals will lead to anything but a democratic outcome.

Why is Justin Amash Endorsing Social Engineering?
On February 13, 2020, Michigan Congressman Justin Amash endorsed the idea of establishing an Equal Rights Amendment.
Under the ERA, the government would allegedly guarantee equal legal rights for all Americans regardless of their sex.
Amash tweeted, “Equality before the law is fundamental to the Rule of Law and foundational to liberty. The Constitution exists to protect our liberty, so I have long advocated including a federal equal protection clause in the Constitution.”
He added, “Drafting a new nondiscrimination amendment would allow us to enshrine our modern understanding of equal protection as preventing all arbitrary discrimination by government, and it would allow states to consider the proposal without being under a constitutionally dubious deadline.”
Amash’s support for the ERA is indicative of the leftward lurch he taken as evidenced by supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump and voting for legislation that would have funded transgender surgeries for members of the military.
The ERA is one of the biggest pet projects of the cultural Left.
They were able to score major victories by establishing forced integration, the 1965 Immigration Act, and affirmative action throughout the 1960s.
However, they did fail trying to ratify the ERA during the 1970s. But that has not stopped in recent times.
Now the Left has a new ally in Amash, who used to be a solid libertarian conservative.
Ratifying the ERA will only consolidate the managerial state’s hold over the private affairs of Americans and usher in more social radicalism via public administration.
Given Amash’s liberty background, he should think twice before endorsing the ERA.
