A tyrannical new anti-gun law passed in California may give a dark preview into the next stage of the Democratic Party’s plans to subjugate the American people.
In San Jose, gun owners will now have to obtain liability insurance and pay the government a fee for enjoying the right to be armed to protect themselves, Fox News reported. The extraordinary imposition is said to be the first law of its kind anywhere in the nation.
Fees and insurance
The new law requires gun owners to pay $25 in annual fees, plus administrative costs, and pay for liability insurance for “any negligent or accidental use of the firearm.”
San Jose expects to rake in $1.3 million from its new gun control racket, which is expected to affect up to 55,000 households.
Mayor Sam Liccardo (D), who pushed for the law after a 2019 mass shooting that he appears to be exploiting to target law-abiding Americans, thanked the city council for helping him restrict the rights of his constituents.
Of course, he wants the authoritarian law to be a “model” for the rest of the country.
The law appears to be the latest and most brazen attempt yet by Democrats to redefine gun ownership as a special “privilege” that one enjoys at the pleasure of corrupt ideologues in the government.
Authoritarian law swiftly challenged
It’s a frightening prospect, especially for those who still remember the “mostly peaceful” riots of 2020 that Democrats allowed to carry on for months, simply because they approved of the politics of those doing the burning and looting. Not to mention, violent crime is still skyrocketing in the cities.
Mayor Liccardo has sought to justify the blatantly unconstitutional law with the flimsy pretext that gun violence costs the city millions of dollars each year.
Effectively, Democrats are using the very gun violence their policies have unleashed to demonize and disenfranchise law-abiding citizens who want to protect themselves from the criminals Democrats have emboldened and obstinately protected. It doesn’t get much more authoritarian than that.
The National Association for Gun Rights has already filed a lawsuit against the city for trying to outlaw the right to self-defense.
“If left intact, the City of San Jose’s Ordinance would strike at the very core of the fundamental constitutional right to keep and bear arms and defend one’s home,” the group says, according to ABC News. “This is just as unthinkable as imposing a ‘free speech tax’ or a ‘church attendance tax.'”
