    Democracy and the American way face going by the wayside if we lose this or the next or the next election.

    We can only hope that if Trump loses the republicans hold the senate. If Biden/Harris win & the Dems control both houses the 2A May very well be lost. I’m assuming in that scenario one if the first things President Harris would do would be to pack SCOTUS with 2-3 more dem judges who would uphold whatever insanity they passed.

    Yes I said President Harris because even if Biden lives until 2024 I think he is too senile to do anything more than photo opps- Harris will likely drive the agenda & if you want to get an idea of what that may look like - look at Kalifornia

    Meanwhile, the number of Americans who are now gun owners has skyrocketed since March thanks to economic uncertainty and social unrest.

    Judging by the scarcity of 5.56 NATO and 7.62x39 mm, they're not just buying pistols and shotguns.

    While its very possible if Biden and Harris win we will have a assault on the 2nd Admendment but im hopeful we can retain the senate. If not we'll I keep hope in the fact Obama couldn't pass any gun control laws when he had both the house and the senate during a portion of his presidency.

    @Cop_Out since I am not Leo or military I’ve been dealing with it in our state since Sandy Hook. It’s a nightmare and I’m constantly panic buying. For the sake of everyone else living in a free state I hope this never becomes national policy

    You guys seem to be forgetting what presidential hopeful Harris said. She said if/when she becomes president, she will give congress 100 days to pass her gun control or she's going to do it herself. If it's not through congress, it'll be through executive order, or she'll follow Trump's example and just tell ATF to classify stuff as machine guns. Doesn't matter if Republicans control the senate, if she wins, it's happening.

    So, what's an assault weapon? That could classify everything beyond a shotgun and revolver as a weapon of war.

    Only you can decide to stand or live on your knees. You will have to choose and pick a side.

    Agreed. I just hope enough people are willing to stand. Here in Cali, too many choose to live on their knees and just comply. I guess they already had knee pads from their other hobby...

    Late Charlton Heston once said,

    You are the best and the brightest. You, here in this fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River. You are the cream. But I submit that you and your counterparts across the land are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that and abide it, you are, by your grandfathers' standards, cowards.

    It only takes 10% to succeed, I’m sure there is more than 10% that have had enough and will not bow down to the anti-Christ 2.0!!!
    I’m really surprised at this time more haven’t told the government to fudge off with the Covid crap? All the super restrictive areas are controlled by Dems and their sheep follow right along!

    In light of the Left's failure to abide by the 2016 election, by instituting
    a government wide slow rolling coup against a dually elected President
    I for one would not consider them legitimate, and consequently would
    ignore any laws passed by them.

    Actually an interesting article and thank you for posting the link. The stakes are high in this election. Anyone who says any different has their head in the sand.

    Hmmm, from Civics class many decades ago, from memory, 2/3's of the states would have to approve an amendment to the Constitution, I don't know what it would take to delete part of the Bill of Rights...Constitutional Convention? Any illegal executive order or congressional voted "law" altering the Constitution has a swift day in court.

    I'm old and have lived a full life, I will not freely give up my God given rights.

    Not trying to skip ahead but...4 years from now, who’s going to run for President that doesn’t support socialist democratic party lines, isn’t influenced by self profit gain by using his/her office, and is willing to continue the swamp draining while putting America’s interests well above their own?

    Well, there has been rumors of Don jr running, and he is actually pro 2A. Nikki Haley has confirmed she will be running. I'm not super familiar with her yet, but from a quick search she seems good when it comes to 2A. Here's a quote from her:

    "The right to bear arms was deemed so critical by our Founders that they spelled it out in absolute terms, and it is my belief that any governmental action that undermines that right is in turn undermining the very freedoms that built our great nation."

    There's nothing uncertain about it if Trump loses . Biden and Harris have said they're coming for them and they'll use executive orders to do it .
