Neither this order nor any restrictions on lawful gun possession will do anything to reduce crime. Yet here’s another Democrat deciding it’s better to dismiss the Constitution’s absolute right for law-abiding citizens to carry firearms rather than reconsidering their soft-on-crime policies, which are the reason for the nation’s crime wave. While the courts will again stop this left-leaning power grab, it’s about time Democrats stop trying these types of unconstitutional actions.
Something has to be done to slow the gun violence epidemic in the US. Even if a government action is eventually deemed unconstitutional by the courts, it’s worth instituting temporary measures and drawing attention to the issue through litigation. Republicans should offer solutions to the gun violence problem rather than just insisting everyone be allowed to carry an unlimited number of guns.
There's a 50% chance that there will be at least 1.40 small firearms per capita in the USA by 2029, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
