When your idiot son gets $millions for being on the board of an oil and gas company and by his own admission knows nothing about oil and gas but your father is Vice-President of the USA ...

So the Republicans investigated Hunter, and ended up implicating one of their own.

Tom's not wrong.  Liberalism is what helped Found America.  So naturally the founding fathers were batshit crazy.

Tom, did you steal that from Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity? They both like to represent that the craziest fringes are representative of all liberals too.

#walkaway is picking up a lot of momentum.

#walkaway is an astroturfing campaign mainly fueled by dyed-in-the-wool conservatives rather than actual disaffected Democrats.

https://arcdigital.media/pro-trump-russian-linked-twitter-accounts-are-posing-as-ex-democrats-in-new-astroturfed-movement-20359c1906d3

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2018/07/02/the-walkaway-meme-is-what-happens-when-everything-is-viral-and-nothing-matters/

https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/17/opinions/russian-bots-2018-midterm-elections-opinion-love/index.html

Admittedly, these articles are from 2018, but I doubt that the movement has suddenly turned genuine in the two years since. People can and do change their political views, but there's no real exodus of former liberals driven from the modern Democratic Party by the radicalism of its leaders.

Who is Georgia and why do we care what she has to say in a 40 minute video? And how are you gauging that this walkaway movement is "picking up a lot of momentum"? It's been kicking around since the 2018 midterms - Apparently had zero impact back then as evidenced by how the midterms turned out. Seems almost irrelevant.

Claiming all Democrats are violent radical card carrying communist socialists who want to take away everyone's guns and 'destroy America' is like...

...claiming all Republicans are card carrying NAZI and KKK members who want to violently bring back slavery and murder all minorities.

I think one needs to be VERY careful before claiming one groups radicals represent all of them. Because every group has radicals they don't agree with, right?

Biden verbatim said he wants to take away guns, so regardless of what individual Democrats believe, the key candidate representing the party wants to take away guns. I'd say that's a pretty alarming sentiment that isn't properly met with "but muh both sides".

Well, police take away guns all the time.  The question is: does he want to take away ALL guns from everyone, some guns from everyone, all guns from some people?

No, he didn't say that, per se...

Facts First: Biden's gun control plan does not include confiscating legally owned weapons and an interpretation of a "viral video" is a mishearing of what was said. The former vice president has said in the past that a Biden administration would come for people's "assault weapons."
Biden's gun control plan outlines a buyback program for "assault weapons and high-capacity magazines," but the program is not a mandatory buyback and would not force people to give their up their guns.
According to Biden's website, the buyback program "will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act."

Here's more detail:
https://joebiden.com/gunsafety/

From the same article:

Quote
But in August 2019, during an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Biden was asked about people who think a Biden administration "means they're going to come for my guns." Biden replied, "Bingo, you're right if you have an assault weapon. The fact of the matter is they should be illegal. Period."

Right, so lets look up what an "assault weapon" is.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_weapon

"Drawing from federal and state law definitions, the term assault weapon refers primarily to semi-automatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns that are able to accept detachable magazines and possess one or more other features."

Ah, so Joe Biden wants to make nearly every gun in the country illegal and he wants to seize them. So let's take another look at:

Quote
Biden's gun control plan does not include confiscating legally owned weapons

Okay, but Joe wants to make them illegal, hence confiscation of illegal weapons. These silly word games where they say "well I won't take your legal firearms" but also "by the way, I want to make all of your legal firearms illegal" are so tiresome. Joe has a long history of anti-gun propaganda. Suddenly changing his website to be full of weasel words during an election doesn't make me feel like he's changed his mind.

I get where you're coming from. But I also wouldn't worry about. Every Dem has been gunning for guns for as long as I've been alive. The NRA is more powerful than any government it seems. You may get hit with a large mag, bump stock, maybe even "assault rifle" ban, but doubtful. The 2nd amendment is even stronger with the new SCOTUS. Biden won't be able to do anything about it.

Assault rifles are already banned in the US. Democrats want to ban "assault weapons" which is their entirely self-created term that means "any gun we don't like". Also, Biden is refusing to say he won't pack the SCOTUS just to get his way. We already have numerous gun bans across Democratic states such as California and New York. It's entirely evident that Democrats want to ban weapons, there's just this pesky 2nd amendment that keeps getting in the way. Saying Biden isn't coming for guns is entirely incorrect, as I previously stated. You've already gone from "well that's wrong" to "well, he wants to, but he can't". Biden is scared to hammer on his anti-gun nature outright because he knows it would make his poll numbers nosedive. Anti-gun sentiment is still a very fringe factor in the US.

Surely you don't have a problem with politicians vying to get the justices they want on SCOTUS to further their agenda?

It's an entirely legal process and he is free to pack the court if he has the political control to do so. In the sense that I would not want him to do it, then yes, I have a problem with it, but he is legally allowed to do it. However, taking away guns is a different matter. Weapon ownership is a human right and no legal process exists to prevent it.

Constitutional amendments are the legal process. Reasonable restrictions on rights often illuminated by the judiciary are a way to constrain rights. So there are ways legal
ways to impose policy positions on gun ownership.

That being said, I seriously doubt your guns will be taken away, but it’s not unreasonable to attribute that position to him. Guns are sadly too ingrained in your culture.
