With the election less than a week away, I think it is time for a final reminder of the importance of this decision regarding gun freedom. No matter how you personally feel about Donald Trump, there is no other choice if preserving the 2nd Amendment is important to you. There is no third way.
If you vote third party, or simply stay home (kind of the same thing), you are saying that there are other things more important to you than the 2nd Amendment. That’s OK, if that’s how you really feel. But don’t try to convince the rest of us that you’re making the best choice for preserving gun rights…don’t kid yourself, either. And if your grudge against President Trump is because he banned bump stocks and made a couple of comments about gun control (which he never acted on), then explain to me how voting him out of office does anything to improve the position of gun rights in this country. I actually saw a comment on Facebook where someone said they wanted to vote Trump out of office because he “wants his bump stock back.” I hate to tell you, bud…but if you vote Trump out of office, you’ll be looking back at the time he banned bump stocks as “the good old days.”
That’s because if Trump loses, it will be because Joe Biden won (no, Libertarians…Jo Jorgensen isn’t going to win). And under a Biden (and eventually Harris) presidency, you ain’t getting your bump stock back. In fact, if Biden wins, you quite literally stand to lose everything. If the Democrats keep the House, flip the Senate, and manage to put Biden/Harris in the White House, you’ll wish all they were doing was banning bump stocks. Their gun control agenda…which is documented in detail on their website…is so draconian and so comprehensive that if they successfully implemented even half of it, then it is effectively game over for the 2nd Amendment.
Now, some of you are probably thinking, “No, it isn’t game over. I’ll fight to keep my guns.” How brave of you. How serious you are. So serious that you would consider spilling blood over your gun rights, rather than making the strategic choice and voting for the best hope of avoiding that fight. So serious that you would consider lining up sights on your fellow Americans and pulling the trigger before you would consider voting for Trump. All because of bump stocks and a few ill-considered words.
Again, if Biden wins every single gun control measure imaginable is on the table. A Biden administration is guaranteed to make life worse for gun owners than a Trump administration. Then, if the battle for the 2nd Amendment becomes a literal one instead of a figurative one, things become still worse for gun owners…as well as everybody else. In either of these futures, we’ll be looking back at the Trump presidency as the good old days.
