U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- This didn’t happen overnight, and it didn’t happen in secret. In 2004 Democrats promised to “protect Americans’ Second Amendment right to own firearms” as part of their party’s platform. In 2008 and 2012 the platform said: “We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms.” In 2016 Democrats erased the Second Amendment from their platform saying they recognized “the rights of responsible gun owners”. Over the past few decades, the Democratic party moved more and more anti-gun.
Hillary Clinton (the defacto 2020 nominee for President and leader of her party) does not think there is a constitutional right to own any gun; and that Heller and McDonald should be overturned.
In essence, the Democrats are doubling down on a losing proposition.
- Their 1st move to the left on guns cost them the South. (The left says it’s about race. In reality, it is about gun rights.)
- The Clinton gun bans cost the Democrats 50+ seats in the Congress.
- Hillary’s anti-gun position cost her the Presidency.
