Catchy headline, right? Well according to Democrats and anti-gunners (who wanted this crap), that’s exactly what it will do!
Polis also signed the safe storage for firearms bill, which would require starting July 1gun owners to use a gun safe, trigger lock or cable lock when someone who is ineligible to possess a firearm could access the gun or guns.
Said safes or locks would not have to be used when a firearm is carried by a person, if the firearms are kept in a “secure container or in a manner that a reasonable person would believe to be secure” and the juvenile or person not allowed to possess a gun do not have access; or if the firearm is an antique.
Not storing firearms in accordance with the law will be a Class 2 misdemeanor. Licensed gun deals would also have to provide a locking device for the weapon at the point of sale or transfer, and failure to do so would be an unclassified misdemeanor.
The only way for this law to be enforced is if police check up on gun owners to make sure they’re complying. There’s no other way. Another way for it to be enforced is if people rat out those they say are in non-compliance, such as for political reasons. Shannon Watts gave us that example last night:
Now, back to the minority part. As stated, the only way for this to be enforced is for the police to be involved, right? Why on earth would “racial justice” Democrats want these numbers inflated even more? Why would they want police harassing minorities over a “feel good“ law that could put them at risk. From Everytown itself:
Every year, police in America shoot and kill more than 1,000 people, and Black people are victims at a disproportionate rate. Curbing this gun violence requires confronting America’s history of racism, reimagining the role of police, and implementing policies that reduce police gun violence.
Considering that minorities are the largest demographic gain in gun ownership (blacks account for 58.2% of new gun owners), why are Democrats and groups like Everytown cheering on a law that will lead to more police confrontations and possible unwarranted “police violence“? It’s because they don’t practice what the preach. They’re also pushing red flag laws to target these new minority gun owners.
The 4th amendment states:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Keep up the great work, Democrats and gun grabbers. Your faux advocacy efforts are smashing into one another. You can’t be both “we are against police violence“ and “we want the police to enforce our BS laws” at the same time. Further, who will these laws have the greatest impact on? Middle class/upper middle class Caucasians in the suburbs who can afford a lawyer and the fees, or people in inner cities who more than likely live paycheck to paycheck? I mean, it wouldn’t be the first time gun grabbers like Shannon Watts have used newly enacted gun control to target minorities (she deleted this tweet btw, but we kept the receipts):
Luckily, people seem to be waking up a tad for what the true purpose of gun control is:
And “gun extremists“, Shannon? Do you really want to go there again? To close, if you don’t believe us on our claims that gun control is used to target the minority community, take it from a reporter with The Trace (Everytown’s media arm):
