Leftist Democrats condemn pro-gun “sanctuaries” after years of protecting illegal immigrants: Is this the spark that will trigger America’s breakup?

Empowered by electoral gains during the 2018 midterms, Democrats around the country — but especially blue states where they now have super-majorities — launched an all-out assault on the Second Amendment, just like they said they would during their campaigns.

New gun control laws began springing up in states like Washington, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon, Colorado, and elsewhere. In cases where Democratic legislatures and governors didn’t impose new restrictions, voters themselves did by supporting ballot initiatives aimed at infringing further upon a right that is supposed to be untouchable under the Constitution.

In Washington, for instance, voters approved legislation prohibiting anyone from buying a rifle under the age of 21 (though it’s 18 under federal law), mandating firearms safety courses prior to gun purchases, imposing new storage requirements, adding additional background checks for anyone seeking to buy an “assault” rifle, and new waiting periods.

In the past, citizens and local law enforcement officials meekly accepted each new firearms restriction — each new “infringement” on a constitutional right that specifically states “shall not be infringed.”

But not this time.

‘They took the idea from liberals’

Left-wing Democrats in several states and jurisdictions appear to have overreached regarding their pet issue of gun control, and now a rebellion of sorts against these new infringements has been launched and is growing. And even more ironic: Efforts to set up “gun sanctuaries” are being modeled on Leftist Democrats’ decades-long practice of protecting people in the country illegally with “sanctuary city” policies.

“No one – and I mean no one – is arguing that immigration sanctuary cities aren’t having an effect on federal immigration law. This bill in Texas uses the same approach of withdrawing resources and enforcement support, but it takes on federal gun control,” said Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center. “More conservative states should do the exact same thing.”

As Reuters reported recently:

A rapidly growing number of counties in at least four states are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, refusing to enforce gun-control laws that they consider to be infringements on the U.S. constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Organizers of the pro-gun sanctuaries admit they took the idea from liberals who have created immigration sanctuaries across the United States where local officials defy the Trump administration’s efforts to enforce tougher immigration laws.

The news service noted that resistance to the new laws has been especially prevalent in four states — Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, and Illinois — though they are controlled by Democrats.

‘If they want their own laws, that’s fine’
