Yet Another State Just Passed Sweeping Gun Control, Is Yours Next?
Gun rights are on chopping block in Rhode Island.
Governor Gina Raimondo recently signed a bump stock ban bill as well as a red flag bill into law.
Rhode Island now joins its neighbors Connecticut and Massachusetts in the crusade against bump stocks.
Ever since the Las Vegas shooting, where the shooter Stephen Paddock used multiple AR-15s equipped with bump stocks to kill 58 people, gun controllers nationwide have rallied around bump stock bans.
But the gun control in Rhode Island did not stop there.
The “red flag” confiscation law passed is just the latest iteration of the anti-gunners’ schemes to undermine Second Amendment rights in the United States. These laws give law enforcement the power to temporarily take away guns from those suspected to pose a danger to themselves or others.
But here’s the catch—these gun confiscation laws are done without any respect for due process.
Make no mistake about it, the gun control crowd is foaming at the mouth in the wake of the Parkland and Santa Fe shootings.
They are looking for every opportunity to ram gun control down law-abiding citizens’ throats.
They want to see the complete destruction of the Second Amendment.
President Donald Trump acknowledged this harsh political reality earlier this year at the Conservative Political Action Conference:
“If [Democrats] get in, they will repeal your tax cuts. They will put judges in that you wouldn’t believe. They’ll take away your Second Amendment, which we will never allow to happen. They will take away your Second Amendment. Remember that,” Trump told the audience during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “They will take away those massive tax cuts, and they will take away your Second Amendment.”
Rhode Island’s recently passed gun control measures are only confirming President Trump’s fears.
If the so-called “blue wave” actually comes out in force during the 2018 election season, gun owners can expect more Rhode Island like scenarios.
No matter how one slices it, giving Democrats the keys to power in Congress would be a nightmare for gun owners.
To prevent more gun control from passing, gun owners must remain vigilant throughout 2018 and make their presence felt at the ballot box.
In the land of the free, gun control must be stopped in its tracks on Election Day.
