It’s a beautiful day. You’ve finally saved up enough money to make some purchases you’ve wanted to make for some time. The sport of three-gun looks intriguing and you’re ready to pick up some firearms to help you give it a try. Sure, you had a revolver you keep close at hand in case of a burglar and maybe even for concealed carry, but that’s not really going to work for three-gun.
As a result, you need to purchase three firearms. A semi-auto rifle, a shotgun (preferably semi-auto), and a semi-auto handgun. There’s a match in your area in a month and you need to start practicing.
Only, you can’t.
See, despite you being a law-abiding citizen with no criminal record wishing to engage in a lawful recreational activity, the law now limits you as to how many firearms you can purchase per month.
That’s what’s likely to happen if Joe Biden wins on November 3.
Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s gun control proposals include supporting legislation to limit Americans to purchasing only one firearm a month.
The proposal is contained on Biden’s campaign website, which says, “Biden supports legislation restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.”
Of course, this is far from the only example of Biden trying to step all over the Second Amendment rights of ordinary Americans, but let’s focus on this one for now.
Let’s understand why the idea of gun rationing even exists. In theory, one of the things it’s supposed to stop is straw buying. There are people who buy a ton of guns for people who can’t purchase their own. They apparently make a fair bit of cash doing this, too. However, those people are surprisingly rare.
Most straw buys are committed when someone asks their girlfriend, wife, or buddy to make the purchase for them. Gun rationing doesn’t actually stop many straw buyers.
But it does stop law-abiding citizens from buying guns when they want to, and that’s a problem. A right delayed is a right denied, and telling me I can’t exercise my Second Amendment rights twice in a given month is most definitely delaying that right.
I can’t help but believe the real reason Biden is pushing gun rationing, though, is that he knows that if he pushes for the kind of gun control he really wants, it’ll spark a buying frenzy as people gear up to resist him. If they can only purchase one a month, that becomes an issue.
Of course, that goes out the window because if he wins in November, the only reason the buying frenzy won’t start then is because it hasn’t died down from when it kicked off in March.
Either way, gun rationing is stupid.
However, let’s also note that the mainstream media isn’t talking about this. Debate moderators aren’t asking about it. The members of the press that follows Biden’s every move fail to ask about it. No one in the media seems to want to discuss gun control with Biden.
In other words, the most radical anti-gun agenda we’ve ever seen in a presidential campaign is being swept under the rug by a complicit media.
