Everyone thought the Democrats’ number one focus was to expose Trump as a huckster and a fraud and get him removed from office via impeachment.
Nancy Pelosi put the kibosh on that, however, and instead she and a few other Democrats have focused on another even more sinister project.
Sadly for Pelosi, recent developments left Nancy Pelosi covered in egg as her biggest pet project just blew up in her face.
Easily one of the grandest plans of the Democrat party is to trim away Americans’ rights to own guns slowly.
They know that if they can put more and more restrictions on the Second Amendment, then one day, Americans will be left defenseless and they won’t be able to resist further tyranny.
Pelosi and her cronies exploit every mass shooting for maximum effect, making sure to use the mainstream media to create grand narratives that pull at the heartstrings of Americans that cause them to forget how guns save lives far more often than they take them.
On Monday, the House Democrats led by Pelosi and supported by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, moved a massive gun-control package from committee to the House Floor. Their goal with these gun laws is to enhance background checks which will make it more difficult to purchase guns.
This comes on the heels of 4-5 years of Democrats successfully succeeding in getting a myriad of restrictive gun laws in place.
Not to mention that after the three most recent shootings (El-Paso, Dayton, Odessa), the Democrats believed the killing fields were rife with opportunity and so they hatched plans to put pressure on Trump to ban assault rifles and pass various other forms of gun control.
Unfortunately for them, and fortunately for liberty, the plans have backfired.
Not only did Trump roundly reject many of their demands — the White House wants to focus on mental health issues contributing to shootings — recent consumer data shows that over the past few weeks, gun sales have surged as Americans concerned with Pelosi’s plans to seize guns have purchased an incredible amount of weapons to stockpile.
The Washington Examiner wrote:
“The overall number of background checks recorded in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System surged 15.5%, said the National Shooting Sports Foundation. That figure includes background checks done for security, concealed carry permits, and gun sales and was the highest August number ever recorded.
“The industry group said that August FBI background checks adjusted for sales surged 15.2% over August 2018. The adjusted August number was second only to August 2016 during the heated presidential election.”
Not only are gun sales some of the highest on record…
Many believe that this is actually a tipping point for a massive buying run.
Consumer analysts believe the new gun control packages may lead to a buying binge much like what occurred in 2016. So while the Democrats want to decrease the number of guns in private hands, their demands to increase gun control have backfired, and now, law-abiding gun owners are on their way to purchasing more firearms than ever before.
