With President-Elect Joe Biden, we know what we’re going to get. He’s been a rabid anti-gunner for decades and he’s not about to change any time soon. He ran in the primary on gun control and while not much was said about guns in the general election thanks to a compliant media, he also didn’t exactly hide his anti-gun beliefs. I mean, they were right there on his website for all the world to see.
One of Biden’s proposals is to tax the ever-loving crap out of us. He’s proposed a $200 tax on every so-called assault weapon and on every magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds.
Considering what many of us have, that’s thousands of dollars in taxes just to keep something we lawfully purchased.
Now, a senator-elect campaigning in Georgia has hit the nail on the head as to what this is really about.
FORSYTH, Georgia — Sen.-elect Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) campaigned Monday afternoon as part of a tour to promote voting for Republicans in the Georgia Senate runoff election and talked with Breitbart News about how she sees Democrats threatening fundamental rights like the Second Amendment.
Lummis, after appearing at Meadows Gun Club alongside Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), and other Republican leaders as part of Club for Growth Action’s statewide “Save America” bus tour, spoke with Breitbart News about Democrat plans to tax guns as a means of penalizing those who own them.
“They will tax guns,” Lummis said. “They will tax every weapon as high as they can every year as a way to punish those of us who are gun owners.”
Lummis described incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) as the country’s “last line of defense” because Republicans retaining the Senate majority hinges on at least one of them winning their runoff race on January 5.
Folks, she ain’t wrong.
For people like Biden, those of us who oppose gun control deserve whatever comes. They want to punish us because we own weapons they personally find “icky.” That includes the magazine they’ve vilified over and over again but have yet to provide any conclusive proof that they benefit criminals as much or more than ordinary, law-abiding citizens.
See, those who own these weapons and magazines are the problem. We refuse to bow down and take what our “betters” care to dish out. We’re not supposed to be citizens, we’re supposed to be subjects.
In their minds, at least.
Yes, Biden wants to punish gun owners. He wants to push people to be the right kind of gun owners. Well, that’s what he’ll settle for. He wants to make gun owners an endangered species. What he really wants is to basically wipe us out.
What he and the people who do his thinking for him know is that they can’t. They can’t just wipe away guns without one hell of a fight, so instead, they want to hamstring us in every way they can manage.
Lummis is right. This isn’t about public safety. Not really. It’s about trying to teach us a lesson.
The problem is that if Biden pushes this, he might just be the one learning a thing or two.
