Will The 2020 Presidential Election Be A Gun Rights Referendum?


Gun control is shaping up to be one of the biggest issues in this year’s Presidential campaign and upcoming election. President Trump has stated that he wants to protect gun rights, but the front runners on the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, have both said that they want to increase gun control.

Of course, since Super Tuesday, former Obama Vice President has taken the lead for the Democratic Presidential, and he’s started to pour on the gun control rhetoric, even going so far as to say that he wants to bring on anti-gun zealot Beto “hell, yes, we’ll take your AR-15s” O’Rourke for his gun czar. John Lott writes,

November 2020 will be known as the gun-control election.

Tuesday night, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that Beto O’Rourke “will be the one who leads” his gun-control effort. “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15,” O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman and Democratic presidential candidate himself, famously promised in a debate in September. They are “weapons of war, designed to kill people efficiently on a battlefield,” he warned.

O’Rourke vowed to “buy back every single assault weapon” but said that he would use force if people didn’t voluntarily agree to selling their guns. The former candidate also appears to support all the currently discussed gun-control proposals.

In other words, Beto is a gun control zealot. This guy isn’t looking for real solutions to gun violence based on the evidence evaluated in context. No, he is looking for any way that he can to ban guns. Of course, while maintaining his armed bodyguards. Can’t have his protection without firearms, right?


Of course, Biden was already a gun control nut, and he appears to be intending to push that issue hard this year. Lott continues,

Biden was Barack Obama’s point person in his push for gun control. That wasn’t by accident. In choosing Beto O’Rourke, a person who openly brags about not owning a gun, Biden has made the election debate over whether people should even be able to own guns. Make no mistake about it, your right to defend yourself is as stake in November.

It looks like 2020 is going to be a politically ugly year. Whatever else happens this year, we have to keep a Democrat out of the Oval Office because both of the ones that look like they could get the nomination want to take your guns any way that they can.



  1. The 2nd Amendment was established to specifically give the people the tools to stop and defend their rights against a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT as well as against any invading, domestic or foreign enemies and for personal defense against persons trying to harm them or their families. The socialist demo-rats need to remove any form of items that can be used against them so they can create a socialist dictatorship.

  2. It seems every election is about gun rights. The anti gunners are anti freedom. The anti Second Amendment movement is the ONLY movement, I have ever heard of, that is fighting for LESS rights. This seems unbelievable to me. It’s not about guns, it’s about CONTROL! Americans MUST vote for politicians who will work for MORE freedom ,not less. If a candidate talks about “gun safety” he ,or she, means THEIR gun rights are safe, not YOURS!
    The 2020 election choice should be clear vote the Trump team, or lose your rights! The Democrats are telling YOU!

  3. You think it can’t happen?
    Guess again, and remember, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

  4. If one studies their history of the enslavement of a nation it always one of the top priorities of the take over parties; the taking of the guns, the media, the police,and of course the political parties. What is most evident is naiveness of the supporting
    parties is that these parties believe that they will be a part of the ruling class and gain power and or monetary control; this so down right stupid on the part of the political groups. If only the media would wake up from their brain washed dreams.
