Baby steps to a boiled frog

EDITOR: It was back In 1995 when a relatively unknown U.S. attorney named Eric Holder first announced a public campaign to begin brainwashing Americans against guns and the left has been hard at it ever since.

Of course all we hear from the left is stuff like “Nobody’s trying to take away your guns or “Why is it the NRA is so against any kind of gun control?”

Over the years, liberals have also been fond of using words like extremist and paranoid as they have been quietly erasing our 2nd Amendment from U.S. history. It reminds me of the old adage about how to boil a frog: If you put a frog in boiling water it just jumps right out, but if you use “baby-steps” and put the frog in cool water first, then just slowly turn up the heat bit by bit, the frog doesn’t even knows it being boiled until it’s too late.

In one recent case of frog boiling, right here in California, legislators are in the process of quietly working on what will be the strictest gun control laws in the nation. Democrat state legislators recently rolled out a list of 10 proposals that will instantly criminalize most of the state’s law abiding gun owners. Plus, just yesterday we found out that our Supreme Court may soon hear a case in which they could rule permits allowing people to carry concealed weapons nationwide are not protected by the Second Amendment. A single ruling that would instantly turn another 8 million American gun owners into criminals, but the Libs won’t stop there.

From registration to confiscation, using the same baby-steps, someday they’ll re-classify your deer rifle as a “sniper weapon” then begin to ask “Why anyone would need a “sniper weapon?”

Think how just recently it’s been made illegal to have a 2-liter soda delivered with your pizza in New York City and how this kind of ideology of the left always trumps common sense. The left still refuses to admit that gun violence is a mental health issue despite statistics showing the majority of gun violence in the U.S. is mostly due to the continuous breakdown of America’s family structures inside our large inner-cities.

Was this administration ever concerned about gun violence when it handed over 2,000 weapons to bloodthirsty Mexican Drug Cartels at the Arizona border? AKA Fast & Furious
