Despite the clear and concise language of the United States Constitution, there are countless American politicians who have shown a vested interest in laying waste to the Second Amendment.
Knowing that a wholesale repeal of the right to bear arms is highly unlikely, the democratic party and their progressive posses have taken to a piecemeal approach; a soft repeal, if you will. Instead of forcing a legislative action against the very Constitution itself, the left will simply work to make exercising your Second Amendment rights as difficult, unpopular, and frustrating as possible.
This includes a series of unending, redundant public campaigns aimed at pressuring retailers and manufacturers to abandon this inalienable right.
It looks as thought the legendary gunmakers at Colt have bowed to the pressure.
The venerable gun manufacturer Colt is suspending production of the popular and controversial AR-15 and other long rifles for civilian use, as lawmakers continue the fraught gun debate following a series of mass shootings.
The company’s president and chief executive, Dennis Veilleux, said that the consumer market has “experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity,” and that Colt believes there are enough rifles on the market for the foreseeable future.
Colt will instead focus on fulfilling military and law enforcement contracts.
The language used to describe the shift was nothing short of masterfully vague in its legalese.
“Currently, these high-volume contracts are absorbing all of Colt’s manufacturing capacity for rifles,” Veilleux said in a statement. “We believe it is good sense to follow consumer demand and to adjust as market dynamics change.”
Colt follows retailer such as Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods, who have both adjusted their gun sales policies in order to appease the liberal soft repeal ethos.
Furthermore, a number of popular stores such as Walgreen’s have asked their customers to no longer open carry on the property, despite what the local ordinances allow.
