Yeah, Dems are coming for your guns

gun store assault weaponsThe public will witness Democrats push for more gun restrictions in 2019, both on Capitol Hill and in state governments with anti-gun governors.

Democrats on Capitol Hill are expected to push for "gun safety" in January, bolstered by more than 90 Democrats who ran openly on pushing for new gun control laws, NPR reported before Election Day.

"After recent mass shootings," the liberal, taxpayer-funded news organization reported, "GOP congressional leaders have come under criticism for offering their thoughts and prayers, but little legislative action. The next Congress may be very different."

Las Vegas massacre (Oct 2017)The pre-election story described one Democratic candidate, former U.S. Army Ranger Jason Crow, who was challenging GOP Rep. Mike Coffman and NRA ally in Colorado's 6th District.  

Crow, who went on to defeat Coffman 53-43 percent, told NPR he supported a ban on "assault weapons" and claimed popular civilian firearms such as the AR-15 are the same as the "military-style assault weapons" he carried in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Yet many gun owners repeatedly point out that a military-grade M-4, is issued to miltary personnel for combat, is not the same as the civilian version that has become Enemy No. 1 of gun control advocates.  

Lawrence Keane, senior vice president for government and public affairs at the National Shooting Sports Foundation, tells OneNewsNow that there will certainly be "activity" on Capitol Hill but it's doubtful any bill will get signed into law by President Donald Trump.

Keane points to states including Nevada, Washington, Oregon, and New Mexico, and he says liberal California went from bad to worse after on Election Day.

California's governor-elect is Gavin Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor, and Keane predicts the "anti-gun" governor-elect will push for more legislation in a state that is no ally to gun owners.

"Even though California is the model of the gun control community," he says, "they have every conceivable gun control legislation they want, and of course we still have tragedies like the one in Thousand Oaks because legislation can't stop a person who has evil in their heart and is crazy."

Keane urges Second Amendment supporters to pay attention, get engaged politically, and vote.
