Next week, Joe Biden will officially accept the Democrats’ presidential nomination. The night before he accepts the Democrats’ presidential nomination, Kamala Harris will accept the nomination to be Biden’s running mate. When Biden accepts the nomination, Biden-Harris will become the first gun confiscation presidential ticket in history.

The only things that Sen. Harris hasn’t faked is her lust to be president and her lust to confiscate guns. She famously said that, if elected, she’ll “give Congress 100 days to get their act together” and pass gun control legislation for her to sign. If they don’t get that bill passed, she’ll use her executive authority to confiscate weapons:

Think about this. It isn’t just Harris that wants to confiscate guns. Biden wants to confiscate guns, too:

The easiest way to prevent Kamala Harris and Joe Biden from confiscating your firearms is to vote for President Trump. Don’t forget that Biden-Harris want to confiscate your firearms while other Democrats are voting to dismantle entire police departments or dramatically cut funding for police departments. While cities turn into open-air shooting galleries, Democrats want to strip you of your right to protect your family. What part of that sounds right with you?

Democrats frequently use the argument that hunters shouldn’t need 100-round clips. Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar are 2 of the Democrats who’ve said that recently. That’s true. Hunters don’t need those high-capacity clips. People protecting their families in Chicago, NYC or Minneapolis might find comfort om those high-capacity clips, though.

Biden told Robert Francis O’Rourke that he’d name O’Rourke as his gun czar. This is why he’d do that:

Democrats are fast turning into the party that confiscates guns and dismantling police departments. They’re homeland security nightmares.

Lori Lightfoot’s war-torn Chicago sustained more bullet holes Tuesday night. Clearly, she isn’t capable of keeping her city safe. That’s her primary affirmative responsibility as Chicago’s mayor. Just before 6:30 pm CDT, shots were reported at “a funeral in the Auburn Gresham community.”

What’s bitterly ironic is the fact that it “began as a solemn ceremony for a victim of gun violence, and ended up becoming a gruesome scene of gun violence unto itself. Chicago Police First Deputy Supt. Eric Carter said a black vehicle was heading west on 79th Street at 6:30 p.m., when people inside began firing at attendees of a funeral. The funeral was taking place at the Rhodes Funeral Services funeral home at 1018 W. 79th St. The attendees of the funeral began firing back at the vehicle, which turned north on Carpenter Street and kept firing at people from the funeral before crashing into a parked car midway down the block.”

Carter said 14 victims were taken to five hospitals in unknown conditions. At least 60 shell casings were located. The Fire Department said at least nine people were transported by ambulances from the scene. The Fire Department said Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and the University of Chicago Medical Center received most of the victims. Victims were also taken, or found their way to, St. Bernard Hospital, OSF Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Evergreen Park, and Stroger Hospital of Cook County.

The good news from Tuesday night is that Lightfoot has agreed to accept President Trump’s help:

President Donald Trump is sending help in the form of federal agents to Mayor Lori Lightfoot to help on the crime front in Chicago. The mayor’s response was somewhat of a forced agreement, as long as it’s not a situation like Portland. The mayor at first pushed back against Trump’s threats to send federal agents to the city. The president said he wanted to send them to fix the city’s gun violence problem.

This weekend, 150 federal agents will be deployed to Chicago. Originally, fearing it would be like Portland, where agents clad in military style uniforms without names or insignia were in the area, the mayor resisted. But her understanding Tuesday is that’s not going to be the case. Instead, Lightfoot said the federal agents will work alongside Chicago Police Department officers which is not unprecedented, and unlike in Portland, the U.S. attorney for the northern district of Illinois, John Lausch, will help.

Apparently, Lightfoot has seen the foolishness of her ways, though I’m betting she won’t act contrite anytime soon. Most important is the fact that President Trump, not the black mayor of Chicago, is trying to fix black-on-black violence. Shouldn’t the MSM admit that if shootings and murders drop in Chicago? I’m not holding my breath on that.
