I see video after video or post after post of people within the 2A poking fun or making comments on politicians lack of knowledge with guns or other things they try to regulate.
Now let me be clear. My issue is not whit us having an opinion and thinking a lack of knowledge should be something that should hold someone back from making moves that effect our abilities to own/use guns. My issue is that this is the default answer on false claims these politicians make.
Take for example that our VP saying she would crack down on AR-15 imports and inferring that this is how they are getting into our communities. Now we all know this is not the case. We know AR-15s are made here. We also can agree that a lack of knowledge on this should hold the VP back from making such a claim. However my point is that she has a lot of advisors and a lot of resources at her disposal as the VP of the USA. There is no way that she cant get the information needed to know this.
Knowing this I think we should stop defaulting to the argument that politicians are morons on the subject of guns. They know these thing. What I’m saying is politicians are not uneducated on this subject, they are simply liars.
I’ll give you another example. Remember a few years back when CNN had that left leaning former military general on for a segment where he was shooting an AR-15 and he called the rifle a “Full Semi-Automatic”? We all clowned him for being a dumbass. I have a hard time believing a former military general would not know the basics of fire arms to such a degree they thought Full Semi-Autonomic is a thing.
What I’m saying is that these people are liar and that they know what they are doing and that is far far worse.
Look at it this way. It’s a 2 pronged attack on the subject that is 2A/Guns. Is it better to fear monger or is it better to fear monger AND spread misinformation about guns and all things 2A is you are a leftist politician? I think the answer is clear.
We need to combat this and the first step is to recognize our 2A rights are not being attacked by ignorant people but cold calculater liars.
Also I know…I’m pointing out that politicians are liars gasp! Revolutionary stuff I know! Lol. This is more me commenting on us not recognizing when we criticize them for making such ridiculous that they do.
