No one wants to take your guns, they say. The police will protect you, they say. No one needs that type of gun. We’ll keep you safe, they say. Yeah, they really do say it, so many times in fact I could fill an entire column with nothing but links to columns like this, but that would be boring.

The fact is, the Democrat party does want to take your guns, and this current empty shell masquerading as your president has said it, many times. Too many times to count, in fact, so it’s easiest just to link to his own presidential campaign website where he says he wants to ban your guns. Yes, it’s true, the Democrat Party hates your guns and wants to take them away.

Today, in Afghanistan, the Taliban are reportedly moving house to house taking away privately owned firearms. According to Rueter’s, “Taliban fighters in the Afghan capital, Kabul, started collecting weapons from civilians on Monday because people no longer need them for personal protection, a Taliban official said. “We understand people kept weapons for personal safety. They can now feel safe. We are not here to harm innocent civilians,” the official told Reuters.

That’s right, the Taliban will keep you safe. There’s a new sheriff in town and you don’t need your firearms anymore. Think, “Hello, I’m from the Taliban and I’m here to help.” That’s not very comforting is it?

Nothing good will come of the Taliban disarming the Afghan population, that much I can promise. In fact, nothing good ever comes when a government confiscates private arms. Americans know this and for that reason, we choose not to trust government officials who want to take our guns.

We know why the Taliban wants to take guns from the Afghan people. The real question is, why does the Democrat party want to take your guns?
