"Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," failed presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke promised back in September. "We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore."
It seems that every cycle, Democrats get more and more radical when it comes to wanting to infringe on our Second Amendment rights. Some, like Beto O'Rourke, weren't so shy about it, while others, like Joe Biden, claim to support the Second Amendment while promising to put people like Beto in charge of gun control.
As much as Democrats want to get guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, their campaigning on gun control has proven to have the opposite effect than they hoped for. According to FBI gun records, background checks for weapons purchases for January and February are up 30 percent over the previous year. The Washington Examiner reports that in the previous two months, "there have been 5,505,169 checks. Last year, there were 4,218,980 background checks in January and February." If this trend continues, 2020 will be a record-breaking year for the most background checks (over 30 million) through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
