I am asking a very straight forward question here. Why has the progressive democrats over the years been so damn afraid of the 2nd Amendment? Why are they so damn scared of the average American being able to own fire arms? I do know that many progressive democrats own fire arms for use of sport, hunting and personal protection. So why in the dickens are they so afraid of law abiding citizens just like themselves owning fire arms? I know that they enjoy having them and quite frankly thousands and thousands of them are now purchasing them in massive numbers. But yet here we have Biden trying to use his executive pen to stifle it. So what are they so afraid of? I am asking a very simple question. So can anyone here on OPP give a straight answer to this? And by the way AR15's are NOT weapons of war!

It is an established fact that criminals greatest fear is that of an armed VICTIM.

Motive Established.

Mike, I have an opinion, though I can not prove it. But 50 years of observation provides a LOT of circumstantial evidence. I think the democrat party, and leftists in general, are afraid of the limits that an armed population places on their powers to do what they want in our country. Simple as that. If they can disarm the citizenry, they will no longer have to fear the consequences of displeasing us too much. Everything they say and do about the 2ndA is nothing but rationalization. The true goal is to disarm all Americans. Self defense will be illegal. Shooting sports will be forbidden. Even hunting tools will be severely controlled and monitored on a federal level, if they get their way.

For the same reason they fly around in private jets while wishing we were all riding bicycles.
You might also ask why the King had an army but the serfs did not.

All greedy folks have the same MO.

I am a gun owner, my neighbors are not aware of it, I don’t plaster my vehicles with NRA stickers or my front door with a sign spouting “protected by Smith and Wesson.” And I sure as hell don’t dress up in a camouflage costume and sling an assault rifle over my shoulder when I visit Applebee’s or the state Capitol. To do so is not only unnecessary it makes people seriously question the sanity of those who do. Columbine, Sandy Hook, Las Vegas, Parkland and dozens of other mass murders have shown us the danger posed by these weapons in the hands of the unhinged with false perceptions of persecution. As Americans see the “cosplaytriots” prancing around with such weapons and playing “militiaman” they will demand more common sense gun legislation. Most do not want to live in a society where a large number of people are brandishing weapons and we normalize mass murder. If you want to see the people who will be responsible for new restrictions on firearms look at the photos below. It is nuts of this ilk that will have centrist Americans demanding tougher firearm restrictions. If you know folks like this telling them to dial it down will do your cause more good than anything else.

I think you’re on the right track, but lets remember that today’s dementiacrats are pressing the ‘communist agenda and , quite secretly, have been for many years. And now we have anChicom sympathizer in the White House.

I'm glad that you brought up "Parkland". Nicolas Cruz, and the carnage that he created, are a shining example
of your "bleeding heart" liberal policies in education and law enforcement.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was paid off, in Cold hard Cash, for keeping Cruz out of Court.
Had laws on the books been ENFORCED instead of being CIRCUMVENTED, that mass murder would not
have happened.

Where are your "common sense" solutions to the real problems that liberal policies have wrought.

you're kidding right? The FBI, and DHS released a report that right wing extremists were responsible for the majority of domestic terrorism, a report generated by TRUMPS people BTW, and you ask what they are afraid of? BTW, the AR 15 is an assault style weapon, meaning, it IS a weapon of war.

"Weapon of war"??? That's a really impressively stupid comment on all levels. Impressive - even for you.

Even I know AR-15-style semiautomatic weapons are civilian versions of military weapons. AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic, a machine gun. Automatic firearms have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934...

Look it up for yourself...

Knowing something of the ease of data manipulation, I would like to see the data supporting those conclusions. An easy example for the poorly informed, what exactly did this supposed report classify as a "right wing extremist" and what was classified as "domestic terrorism"? Questioning voter validity is now called sedition. Murder and property destruction and attacks on federal buildings is called free speech. Exactly the same thing, when done under the cover of a right wing political rally on Jan. 6, is called an insurrection. So define the terms used in the report please. The idea that this is from the Trump administration is a sure sign of ignorance. Trump did not "clean" his administration of all officials opposing his policies like President Obama did, and President Biden is now doing. I wish he would have. The primary cause of his failure to get reelected was his own party sabotaging his agenda every chance they could.
I do not own an AR weapon, but it is simply a semi-automatic rifle that can, not always does, use a large clip. Calling it an assault weapon, or a weapon of war, is simply ignorance on parade. I do own weapons for my personal defense, and the defense of friends and family and home. Personally, I prefer concealed carry, even though I am licensed for open carry. Some people do, unfortunately, get nervous around weapons, and I prefer not to give them obvious reasons to be nervous. But that is my personal choice. I think torn up "skinny" jeans are stupid and slightly offensive. I think wearing pants around your knees with exposed underwear is ridiculous and hilarious. I think bumper stickers and T-shirts with four letter obscenities are highly offensive and disgusting and not done by a decent person. Nevertheless, I have never and will never attempt to ban any of these, or "cancel" them, or make them illegal. Personal choice. If someone wants to open carry a weapon in a legal manner, that, too, is a personal choice, and none of anyone else's business.

Now, let's talk about the supposed deadliness of personal firearms. Please feel free to look up the data yourself.
Even when you count in EVERY single firearm fatality, including accidental discharges, hunting accidents, and suicides, the death rate is a tiny tiny fraction of one percent.
Do you drink alcohol? Use recreational drugs? Then you contribute to the huge number of people, and children too, that are killed by drug misuse, alcohol misuse, and DUIs. Why aren't you fighting to ban THOSE activities?
Do you drive a vehicle? Do you know how many people are murdered each year by the deliberate use of vehicles? Far far more that using firearms. Let's ban driving, as well.
Do you smoke? Do you allow others to smoke in you presence? The tobacco industry has been lying to us for a hundred years about the hazards of smoking. Do you know how many Americans die each year from smoking related heart disease and cancer? It must be banned NOW! Right? "If even one child is saved....." well, you know that line of thinking.
And not ONE of the above listed massively deadly activities is protected in the Constitution. But personal ownership of firearms, and carrying them, and using them, certainly is.
More people are killed each year riding bicycles than die from non-military firearm use and accidents.
And that is not even taking into account the several MILLION felony assaults by criminals that are STOPPED every year by the use of personal defense firearms.
It is so amazing that the left is all into "critical race theory" when they have not yet mastered simple "critical thinking."
