Americans are grieving. Another mentally disturbed person has walked into a public setting, armed with a firearm, and started indiscriminately killing innocent people. Such events are horrific. This time, the crazed rampage happened at a Texas elementary school.

An 18-year-old resident of Uvalde, Texas, walked unobstructed into Robb Elementary School. Once Salvador Ramos was inside the school, he entered a classroom where he barricaded himself inside.

Ramos proceeded to execute 19 schoolchildren and two teachers. Anytime such things happen, it is a tragedy. But instead of working towards a mutual compromise to harden our schools against such attacks, liberals want to take away guns.

It’s like clockwork. Within minutes of a tragic shooting, Democrats begin targeting the Second Amendment. But do liberal, Second Amendment-repealing Democrats express the viewpoints of most Americans?

National surveys about what to do about gun violence do not agree. The majority of Americans believe that there should be tougher penalties for gun crimes. They do not share the crazy notion that guns are to blame.

Most Americans agree with the Second Amendment. Barely one out of five Americans believes that the Second Amendment should be repealed. Nearly six out of 10 support the Second Amendment.

When Joe Biden said that “no amendment is absolute”, he was targeting the amendment that guarantees Americans have the right to own firearms. He meant what he said. Democrats have had their eye on the Second Amendment for years.

Their lopsided, unrealistic solutions to gun violence are why Congress cannot pass legislation that will help save lives. Democrats will not step away from their radical desire to obliterate a constitutional right that is popular with most Americans.

In 2013, Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and Thorn Tillis (R-North Carolina) introduced a bill to help improve background checks for gun purchases. Democrats derailed the legislation.

But these same liberal lunatics will scream that Congress does nothing in the face of these horrific mass killings. That’s not true. Workable solutions have been proposed, but they don’t want them because they don’t go far enough. They want to repeal the Second Amendment.

Furthermore, Grassley and other senators proposed legislation that would have helped harden our vulnerable schools. If it had passed, schools such as Robb Elementary would have been better able to stop such tragedies from ever happening. Democrats derailed that bill as well.

These two key pieces of legislation would have helped keep guns out of the hands of criminals and helped secure our schools. Democrats put up roadblocks to prevent them from becoming legislation. Why would they do such a thing, and then scream “I’ve had enough?”

It’s clear what their motive is. Anything short of the absolute abolishment of the Second Amendment is not enough for them. They’re misguided and selfish. Most Americans will refuse to have their constitutional rights stricken from them.

Any attempt by Democrats to erase the Second Amendment will fail. Nearly half of the people in the country are legal gun owners. Law-abiding Americans do not want to hand over their guns. They want the government to pass laws that keep bad people from purchasing firearms.

Americans want legislation that will ensure their safety. Americans believe in reasonable gun background checks. This would drastically reduce gun violence. However, Americans do not want to give up their Second Amendment rights, no matter how much Democrats think they do.

  • Gunfree zones are killing our children and even adults in this country. This is something that needs to be addressed. I listened to Dan Bongino tonight and he did not talk about the “elephant” in the room. The “elephant” in the room is gunfree zones. These shooters tend to target gunfree zones because they are not confronted by anyone that is armed. It’s time to put police, law enforcement or even veterans in these gunfree zones.

  • The demoncraps and RINOs keep forgetting that the 2d Amendment is all that has kept this country from being under a dictatorship since the early 1900s. Knowing that American Citizens will not comply with this “law” is all that has stopped it. NY, Mass, NJ, California and other states have passed laws that basically forbid American Citizens from owning most militia type weapons and standard magazines. (Not sure how many are owned by illegals and I’m sure the government doesn’t care.) But notice how few have been turned in!
    I really think that government (state and federal) know this will cause the next civil war.

  • Mental health is the problem, and institutions being shuttered and decommissioned is the problem. I, keep asking the Question, Ya’ll seen enough yet? Ya’ll know what needs to be done, Git r Dun! The Whole Global Cabal, demoncRATs and RINOS, ALL SATAN’S DEMON SPAWN MINIONS DESERVE DIRT NAPS. NCSWIC, WWG1WGA, P.A.N.I.C. Let’s Go Brandon, FJB and the Whole SQUAD. I’m not a BOT. I’m a pissed off American Veteran, Trucker and GreatGrandpa. President Trump’s still my President. Yahweh save our poor souls Amen.

  • I start 2nd Amendment discussions with 4 words…..’shall NOT be infringed’. Gun grabbers must never be allowed to frame the debate. Do not want to hear about laws in other countries. Be interesting to see them after this incrementalism gambit fails. Can’t imagine their response when they hear the chorus say, ‘Mono lane’ followed by ‘Go ahead, make my day’.

  • One would be really be stupid to give up their arms. Give up the guns and the government will protect you. (Lie). Like the government protects, the people of Chicago? It goes further than protecting one’s self. firearms are a hedge against losing one’s freedoms and liberties, which is why our forefathers wrote the 2nd Amendment into the U.S. Constitution. Since we have woke General CRT Milley in charge of the military, don’t expect the military to protect one’s liberties and freedoms on America’s shores. Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe would use the military to suppress the liberties and freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, in the same way Communist China suppresses their citizens rights. history has a habit of repeating itself. Communist China ands Russia each killed in the neighborhood of of 30-35 million of it’s citizens in the name of Communism. The common denominator, the citizens gave up their arms. There are forces working behind the scenes that want an American government patented after Communist China. these are the same forces that elected the Squad and Jayapal, and Bolshevik Sanders to office, card carrying members of the Socialist/ Communist parties. Give up the guns, America will be right up there with Socialist Europe, to include New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. There is no Democracy in any of these countries, only the Democracy they want to give one. Same goes for the Ukraine, Same goes for the Ukraine, no one is running around with handguns. The only way you get a gun in the Ukraine, is if your willing to die to defend the Ukraine, then the Ukraine will give one a gun
