Almost everyone knows that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. But did you know that he also wrote a Declaration of Arms?
We already know that violent crime rates have been soaring in major cities across the U.S. since the call to defund police departments and denigrate local law enforcement. That wasn't difficult to call. It's simple math: less law enforcement, more violent crime. Shocker.
This past Wednesday, Joe Biden told cities and states they can use their portions of the $350 billion in direct aid from the COVID-19 rescue plan to improve public safety efforts, including hiring more police officers, as USA Today reported.
The bad news is that Mr. Biden decided to simultaneously enforce more gun control and attack Americans' Second Amendment rights to bear arms.
Fox News reported on Friday, "Nearly the entire Senate Republican caucus signed on to a letter Thursday demanding a withdrawal of a proposed ATF rule that would regulate some pistol-stabilizing braces."
"The way the proposed rule is written makes clear that ATF intends to bring the most common uses of the most widely possessed stabilizing braces within the purview of the NFA," 48 Republican senators wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland and ATF Acting Director Marvin Richardson in the letter, which was originally obtained by The Reload.
"Doing so would turn millions of law-abiding Americans into criminals overnight, and would constitute the largest executive branch-imposed gun registration and confiscation scheme in American history."
Lara Trump was spot on in her commentary on this past week's "Fox & Friends,"when she said: "Our forefathers, our Founding Fathers, put the Second Amendment in there so that we as the people could fight back against a tyrannical government so that we could protect ourselves. They are trying to do away with that. They know full well that it is not the legal gun owners, the tens of millions of us out here in America, that are committing these crimes. These crimes are committed with illegal guns. And if we had more police on the street, if they hadn't demoralized every cop in America, if they hadn't called for defunding the police, we probably would not see the crime skyrocketing like we do right now under Joe Biden."
