I’m going to skip explaining how the left’s true intent is to take our guns away. It’s been written on ad nauseam, and proven through so many examples that I’m not sure why the left is still feigning innocence to the plot.
What I want to talk about is how getting rid of all the guns in America will never happen. It’s a fantasy on par with unicorns, flying spaghetti monsters, and those clip filled guns that spew hundreds of bullets in seconds that politicians talk about during rants.
But mostly, you’ll never get rid of all the guns here because in order to do so, you would have to repeal two amendments.
Let me explain.
First: In order to even begin getting rid of all the guns, you first need to take away our right to have them. This of course, means eliminating the Second Amendment, which is the primary goal of the left in the quest for a gun free America. 2A reads…
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
But killing 2A isn’t an easy task. You can’t just get rid of it, but you can repeal it. In order to do that, you first have to create another Amendment to the constitution that makes 2A null and void. To do this, you have to go through the motions laid out in Article V in the constitution which roughly translates to a 2/3rds majority of both the House of Representatives, AND the Senate, voting for an amendment change, and 75% (or 38) of the states must give the nod for the Amendment to be passed.
Right off the bat, you find yourself having some trouble. You need super majorities that are consistently gridlocked on big issues, and you need them in BOTH houses of congress. Already you’re looking at an uphill battle. Furthermore, the states like their guns.
For perspective, here’s a current map of right to carry states.
At this point in time, 75% of all states being okay with repealing the 2A is a pipe dream. Save some Satanic miracle, you won’t see it go in this lifetime.
Second: But let’s say Beelzebub does get his way, and the left manages to get their wildest dream fulfilled with the required help of the right. Let’s pretend the Second Amendment is repealed, and guns are now illegal.
You still have a super massive problem. See, while 2A was in effect, the United States population was not required to register their guns. The government has no idea as to the precise number owned by the citizenry.
So how do we make sure nobody has a gun once they’re made illegal? The authoritarian statist would likely answer “we go door to door, and search the houses top to bottom.”
Well, that would require the destruction of yet another amendment, specifically the Fourth Amendment which reads…
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
This Amendment was created to fight against the government busting in through your doors without a warrant, or any general orders for searches and seizures. So, in order to search every home, you’d have to have kill 4A. So it’s back to the ol’ 2/3rds and 75%, which as we discussed is not an easy thing to accomplish. Also, almost nobody likes the idea of big brother invading their personal space, left or right. 4A is likely never going away.
Truthfully, neither of them are going anywhere. Your gun free America is so far out of reach, you might as well be wishing for the aforementioned unicorn, flying spaghetti monsters, and guns with the clips and the limitless bullets.
Even if you did manage to kill both 2 and 4, and loads of guns were seized, you wouldn’t remotely stop the firearms in circulation from the black market that would grow by leaps and bounds, not to mention the guns the search squads didn’t manage to find. I’m sure I needn’t remind you that we tried to do the same with drugs, and that it didn’t work out so well.
You will never find all of the guns here in America. We will never be gun free. Leftists and gun grabbing activists might as well stop wasting everyone’s time.
