The radical Left does not like the U.S. Constitution at all. It gives Americans too much freedom from their big government agenda.
That’s why shameless Democrats just shredded the U.S. Constitution to pieces.
The U.S. Constitution is a line in the sand that the federal and state governments in American cannot cross, whatsoever.
That’s the way the Founding Fathers intended it to be.
Today, however, Democrats are dead set on chipping away at all of the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution until there’s nothing left.
They don’t like that the First Amendment gives all Americans the right to free speech, because the radical Left thinks only their elites and protected classes should be able to say what they want.
Straight white men, for example, shouldn’t be allowed to share their opinions on any political matters in the eyes of the modern Democrat party and their extremist base.
The Second Amendment has also come under immense fire from the Leftists as they view weapons as too dangerous for the American to be able to own.
Simply put, they want to erase any right to own a firearm that Americans have. That’s literally why they vehemently disagree with the Supreme Court’s multiple opinions that have upheld the inherent right for any American to own a firearm.
This is evidenced even more by what Democrats just did in Washington state.
Democrats in the Washington state legislature have passed a new bill that will completely ban the sale, distribution, and importation of most rifles.
Guns that will be illegal include the AR-15, AK-47 and similar AK models, and much much more.
NEW: Washington is set to become the 10th state to ban the sale of AR-15s and other guns it classifies as assault weapons. https://t.co/iwT6RFTx5i

What’s particularly gross about this bill is that the law will allow the state government to purchase these banned weapons for their law enforcement and state agencies.
The bill is making its way to Democrat Governor Jay Inslee’s desk and he is expected to sign it, at which point it will go into effect immediately with no delay.
Washington’s new gun control bill is extremely dangerous for two reasons.
Firstly, there’s no reason that the Democrats in Washington and in other states can’t use the same logic that they’ve used against semi-automatic rifles against the humble handgun.
There’s only difference between an AR-15 and a Glock-19 are the the fact that an AR-15 has a long barrel and can be braced.
AR-15s do not come in one caliber alone. You can get an AR-15 in a 9mm caliber just like a Glock-19 is chambered in.
The humble Glock can also be fired just as fast and can use magazines that are just as long as the AR-15.
The vast majority of gun violence in America is committed with a 9mm handgun. Who’s to say the Democrats won’t next argue that the handgun is too dangerous for its citizens to own too?
The logic behind these bands are simply nonexistent.
Secondly, it’s a blatant violation of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The Founding Fathers could not have been more clear with their wording of “shall not be infringed.”
The Supreme Court has ruled as much, most recently with their June 2022 ruling that shot down the New York law that required citizens to give a reason accepted by the state to be able to get a permit.
This Washington state law could very well end up before the Supreme Court because it is an obvious violation of rights that all Americans are guaranteed.
