In what will be a serious blow to the GOP in the midterm elections, Illinois governor, Bruce Rauner, (a Republican), has proposed a series of gun control measures that are a direct threat to the Second Amendment as it stands.
Rauner has put forward proposals that will enable gun confiscation laws to be introduced and also implement a 72 hour wait period on the purchasing of firearms. What the confiscation order means is that under the direction of a judge, police will be able to seize legally owned weapons from citizens who have not committed any crime based on the idea that the individual “might” be a danger.
Then, the accusers have two weeks to make a case for why the weapons should not be returned. This is tyranny, and it is wrong.
The person whose weapons get confiscated will only know about it when the police come to their door and demand they hand over their firearms.
This shockingly illiberal idea will not stop here. It is a step by step approach to disarming the population while trying to avoid the almost inevitable bloodshed that will ensue. The police and courts will play nice saying ” you have nothing to worry about, you will get them back, trust us!”
It is nothing more than destroying the very Constitution. Without the 2nd Amendment, how long do you think the First Amendment will last?
