Alive and Well

The second amendment that is. With the coronavirus and all the recent riots from BLM and antifa, gun sales have been soaring again. People never owning guns are buying them, people who do own guns are buying more and they're flying off the shelves.
Two months ago I went into my LGS and ordered a Sig 226 Legion RX and was told it would be about a week. It's been two months and Sig and I'm sure many other makers are way back logged on their quality guns.

Fenix Ammunition has been hiring new people, and can't come close to keeping up with demand. They're sold out of almost everything...

If Biden (or whatever/whomever they substitute in the end for him after he's declared senile) gets elected in 2020, you can kiss the Second Amendment goodbye! I really believe the Demoturd Progressive Socialist Marxists have the will and the sneaky methods to actually succeed in getting the 2nd abolished or watered-the-hell-down so it is no longer effective for gun rights! The Repubs do not have the will to fight them IMO! Trump, whether you like him or not, is our best last chance to turn things around and IMO, there are enough who will/have deserted him so that his chances are greatly lessened! Trump needs 4 more years to get things to where they need to be to effectively neuter the liberal other side! They have mobilized and our side has pulled back from Trump! I believe the we are most likely effed so enjoy what you have right now because ….this is the pinnacle, the last stand and a lot are not backing Trump as I see it! Good luck!!

I'm thinking "alive" yes, but "and well" maybe not for long. Like OLE442 suggests if "The Donald" doesn't pull a rabbit out of his hat again I'm thinking we should be prepared to see changes. There was a huge spike in purchasing of firearms just before the last Presidential election too for the same reason. There's no denying the left would look to ban "weapons of war" at least. If the Senate falls too and they can run wild God only knows how far things will go???
One things for sure the Trump/Biden debates are going to be entertaining.

Gun control at the federal level isn't as easy as ya might think. Gun-grabbers Obama and Biden along with super anti-gun kook AG Holder had two years with democrat majorities in the Senate and House lead by anti-gun whackos Schumer and Pelosi. Nada. Even after horrific events like Sandy Hook... no federal gun control was passed.

People see the anarchy and violence in the streets. They hear democrats calling to 'defund the police'. Telling the public they're going to defund the police and take away your guns... tough sell... especially since democrats have routinely said you don't need a gun because the police will protect you.

Despite the relentless attacks by the fake news media on Trump, I don't see this environment friendly to open borders, abolish the border patrol, ICE, DHS, defund the police anti-gun democrats.

I don't mean to be confrontational or turn this into a thing. I highly doubt the 2nd amendment is in any danger of being "abolished" so to speak.
Now reinterpreted, that's another thing. The Democrats are virtually all on record as being for restrictions. A lot has changed since Sandy Hook, it won't surprise me a bit if the Trump himself winds up offering some sort of concession gun wise to try and regain traction with the soccer mom, middle of the road crowd. There's no two ways about it, he has to get that vote to win in several key states. It would seem the issue is going to be unavoidable and a real potential trap. We're going to see in the next few months one way or another.

Trump won't campaign on any concessions in regard to gun restrictions. To the contrary, he will continue to attack Biden for embracing gun-grabbing kook "Beto" to be his advisor on guns.

It was at the federal level, even with a republican president and a republican senate, that we saw bump stocks outlawed. With the political climate the way it is now, Im afraid of just what may happen if we get Biden in office. Even worse if we get more democrats in the senate. This is not the America I knew and grew up in.
