Liberals always seem to be declaring they only want bans or restrictions on certain types of guns. Added to that is their declaration of support for the Second Amendment. However, once in a while, one of those liberals lets their mask drop and makes their true intention known.
Such a person is the editor-at-large Dave Holmes of Esquire magazine who flat out declared in the wake of the school shootings in Texas on Friday that he wants to ban all guns. Here is Holmes saying what most other liberals are careful to keep under wraps in Okay, Now I Actually Do Want To Take Your Guns.
Hey there, NRA:
Listen, I know the moments after a gunman opens fire in a school are hectic for you. You have to get your talking points together, you have to mentally prepare to debate a traumatized yet sensible child, you have to look at yourself in the mirror and practice saying that more guns would have made the situation less deadly. It’s a busy time! And since we are always either in the moments after or the moments before a mass shooting, you’re pretty much always busy, I have noticed!
Anyway, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I now actually do want to take your guns.
All of your guns.
Hey there, Holmes.
Listen, I know the U.S. Constitution means little to you but there is something in it called the Second Amendment.
Of course, he leaves that "little" detail unmentioned and goes on a tirade culminating with this unhinged rant:
So now I’m angry. Now I’m finished trying to reason with you. So now I, a guy who was ambivalent about guns just a few years ago, want to take your guns away. All of them. I want to take them all and melt them down and shape them into a giant sphere and then push it at you so you have to run away from it like Indiana Jones for the rest of your lives. I want Ted Nugent to roam the halls of his gunless house, sighing wearily until he dies. I want to end this thing once and for all, so that all of you who have prioritized the sale of guns over the lives of children have to sit quietly and think about what you’ve done. God help me, I want to take all of your guns out of your hands, by myself, right now.
After that, Holmes attempts to barely claw back to reality but fails.
It won’t happen, of course. So let’s meet in the middle. Let’s meet at…literally anything.
It’s happening. We tried it your way, and it really did not work. The ground is shifting. Get ready.
Sorry, Mr. Holmes, but you already let the cat out of the bag. There is no "middle" for you since you already admitted you want to ban all guns. And if Holmes or anybody else needs a reason for the existence of the Second Amendment just look at the fake elections today in Venezuela in which a cowed populace has no real choice. A big reason for that is because years ago, the ruling Chavistas did just as Holmes said and banned all guns. And now only the government has the guns with which they can control their citizens.
