Guns: The Left's True Aim, and How to Thwart It
We must not lose focus on the end goal of progressives regarding guns. Make no mistake; regardless of what they say, their ultimate goal is confiscation of all guns in America. And a “universal background check” will get them closer to this nirvana than the banning of a few selected weapons ever could.
To understand progressive methodology, let’s use another similar issue: the gay marriage agenda. Say the current definition of “marriage” as it has been for thousands of years is represented by “A” on a continuum of A to Z, with “Z” being the left’s ultimate goal. Asking for “Z” now would be a major overreach (and “Z” is much farther than just gay marriage), so progressives ask for “N,” which is just enough of a stretch to make people push back only a little.
So to protect a foundation of society, the people of California overwhelmingly vote a law that defines marriage — an appropriate state’s rights issue. The left goes to court and has California’s decision overturned. The people next pass a state constitutional amendment, and again the left gets it overturned, and now it is in the Supreme Court. The left also applies public pressure through the media to brand anyone who doesn’t agree as a homophobe or hater, all the while controlling the educational curriculum so only one side of the argument is taught to our children.
Eventually, progressives will get only “C” this time, which is really all they wanted for now. But note something powerful here. “C” becomes the new “A.” So there is never a way to back it up to the original “A.” Over time, they will win another “C” that becomes “A.”
Before long we find that we are at “H” on the original A-Z scale, but “H” is now considered “A”. And so it continues.
