The last few weeks have seen a back door assault on American’s Second Amendment rights. Municipalities and districts across the country have been shutting down gun stores and manufacturing facilities using stay at home orders designed to combat the Chinese Coronavirus.
Democrats have long had gun confiscation as one of their long-term goals. After all, an unarmed populace is far easier to rule than one that’s able to arm up the second it looks like someone’s ready to kick off the next boogaloo. Just ask Virginia.
Luckily, however, President Trump is on the job, and is ready and willing to defend one of our most important rights from those who would do us harm. To that end, Trump’s DHS has declared gun retailers and manufacturers as essential businesses in this time of Chinese-induced crisis:
The DHS guidelines list as essential:
- Workers supporting the manufacturing of safety equipment and uniforms for law enforcement, public safety personnel, and first responders.
- Workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges.
The Second Amendment Foundation’s Alan Gottlieb commented on the DHS declaration, saying, “Every freedom loving American owes President Trump and his administration a very big thank you for protecting our Second Amendment Rights. This is another Trump promise made and promise kept.”
The DHS declaration comes just days after Governor Phil Murphy (D) laughed in the face of a man who expressed concern that the statewide shutdown in New Jersey had put an end to gun sales, thereby eliminating the ability to get a firearm for self-defense.
The Chinese Coronavirus has resulted in massive numbers of people rushing to their local gun stores/ranges to purchase firearms. The demand is so high that the FBI’s background check system was in danger of being overloaded.
Americans’ right to self protection is never more important than in a time of national crisis. Especially since increasing numbers of local law enforcement officers are falling ill due to the Chinese Coronavirus.
Thank God we have President Trump on hand to ensure Americans are able to continue to protect their families as they see fit.
