One of the biggest threats to our liberties as Americans isn’t what most people think. Yes, government overreach (which is at monumental levels, now) is a huge problem. Woke corporations trying to manipulate the culture and steal our liberties is another big issue. The ignorance of so many people about why they should care passionately about the Second Amendment whether or not they choose to own and carry a firearm is appalling.
But today we’re going to talk about what may be a bigger threat, in its own way, than any of those challenges by themselves. What is that threat?
Now, if you aren’t familiar with the term, incrementalism is, according to Merriam-Webster, “a policy or advocacy of a policy of political or social change by degrees : GRADUALISM (the policy of approaching a desired end by gradual stages).”
Think of it like drops of water falling, over and over, over time, and hitting the exact same place on a rock. Over time, the rock is worn away by the repetition and small bits of water. In the same way, anti-2A activists have been using incrementalism to, over time, change the conversation about guns in America so that they can, eventually, get their way.
You can see a video from Langley Outdoor Academy talking about the soon-to-be former head of the Giffords gun control group below who confessed that that is their method.
So, the Biden administration is, frankly, in bed with Gabby Giffords’s gun control group. They talk weekly, And they are working consistently and steadily to steal our Second Amendment rights. They are taking every tiny step towards that goal that they can get and, then, pushing for the next.
And that’s why we can’t give them any ground. Because they won’t give us any concessions. They’ll just take any concession that we give them and use it to push their wrongheaded agenda forward.
