Major gun bans and gun grabs are core to the 2020 Democrat election strategy.
Joe Biden, who is still the leading Democrat Primary Candidate explained in a rambling disjointed way that guns that take magazines need to be banned and allowing people to own century-and-a-half old weapons technology is not a violation of the Constitution.
Joe wants to ban “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them,” and said that doing so is “no violation of #2A.”
He knows NOTHING about firearms or 2A. In June, he claimed to have gotten “the number of clips in a gun banned.”

I disagree with the NRA here, the Joe doesn’t know what he is talking about.
This is Joe “fire two blasts” Biden, the guy who told his wife to defend herself by committing a felony with a double-barrel shotgun.
He knows enough to be dangerous and more than the average ignorant anti-gunner that is going to vote for him.
Then there is Robert Francis “Cultural Appropriation for Votes” O’Rourke who just went all Douche Nukem and said that he will force AR-15 and AK-47 owners to sell their guns to the Federal government.
Robert Francis O’Rourke announces that if he's elected he is going to confiscate your guns:
Reporter: How do you address fears that the government is going to confiscate people's semi-auto firearms?

It would be easy to dismiss Beto as some entitled jackass polling at 1%, but that would be a mistake. He most definitely is an entitled jackass polling at 1%, but the media is still following him around. He was favorably compared to RFK when he ran against Ted Cruz.
He might not ever be President, but he is part of this new class of Democrats, like Stacey Abrams or The Squad, who have undue influence (even despite their loses) because of the new metric is that Social Media star-power is king.
Keep in mind that BuzzFeed, one of the top news sources for the AOC voting demographic, said that gun bans have given Beto’s campaign its purpose.
As the Democrats fall over each other to be more Progressive in hopes of taking the lion’s share of the Democrat’s base, this all-out gun ban and gun grab message isn’t going to go away.
This is a bell that cannot be un-rung.
If we dismiss this because the people talking about gun bans and gun grabs sound like nonsensical idiots or have low polling numbers, we will be the ones to blame for the loss of our rights.
They don’t have to be knowledgeable or cogent to do serious harm to gun rights in this country, they just have to have more of them than there are of us.
We have to stop acting like internet grammar Nazis “haha, you said AR stands for ‘assault rifle’ not ‘Armalite Rifle’ so your argument is invalid” and take every one of their statements for the serious threat to our gun rights that it is.
