One handgun is allowed per person, and there are no military-style weapons for civilians.

Eleven of the thirteen people shot in Buffalo, New York, are black today. Because America is obsessed with guns and unlimited position in the Second Amendment, ten people have lost their lives today. Republican Second Amendment extremists support the assault weapon used by 18-year-old white hegemonic shooters in hate-crime genocide. Lawmakers like the disgusting, hypocritical, immoral Senator Ted Cruz publicly adore the Second Amendment in order to maintain support for the NRA, dark money, and white hegemony. Since Trump became president, the Nazis have been marching boldly, with anti-democratic / fascist parties in the mainstream and mass shootings on the rise. Teenage shooter legally obtained this automatic weapon. The lack of intelligent gun control regulations is to keep the vote, not to save lives. Republicans’ only life-affirming position is their confused view of when life begins. They are not willing to be pro-life about victims of gun violence, asylum seekers, and the sick / poor who need affordable healthcare. False conservatives say the goal of democracy for gun control is to repeal the Second Amendment. Republicans know how innocent their base is, so they use dishonesty to intimidate them into maintaining their support. More deaths will follow until Republicans are massively removed from power.

Most of the white supremacists support the extreme Christian discourse and prefer the weapon of attack. The influence of Christian extremism in our politics is a threat to our democracy and contributes to the orthodoxy that leads to mass shootings. Contemporary Christianity has become as cruel and selfish as the MAGA ideology that it supports. In contrast to Jesus’ peaceful teaching, Maga hated evangelical non-Christians. Not everyone is a Christian. Other religions, atheists and agnostics exist. If God created these diverse people, He must be in favor of diversity. Most of the leaders supported by Christian extremists and white supremacists are racist, anti-Semitic, or anti-social. They are concerned about ineffective fetuses but support the freedom of every American to have a gun of their choice so that they can kill as many innocent people as they want. If the Supreme Court deems it justifiable to exclude a woman’s right to abortion, then let’s start a state-by-state movement to limit gun rights. Doing so can save the lives of people who are fully realized.

Additionally, if the Republican Party chooses to treat women as unequal to men over reproductive rights, it should start a movement to force men to undergo vasectomy to eliminate unwanted pregnancies. Conversely, vasectomy may be against the law. Doesn’t the use of vasectomy interfere with the natural process of fertilization and give men control over their bodies and reproductive rights that are being taken away from women? If conservatives want women to give birth to the child of a rapist or their father’s child and to restrict contraceptive use, then it would be fair to remove the same freedom granted to men in deciding when or when to become a parent. This loss of the Freedom of Men Act would be a cruel form of justice, but if the extremist MAGA Christian Republican majority sitting in the Supreme Court wants to discriminate against women, then men could be the next demographic group to be targeted by other branches of the federal government. Or state courts in the name of equality.

Overriding themes that contribute to gun violence and attacks on women’s emancipation are racism, mischief, and religious extremism. The federal government, particularly Attorney General Merrick Garland and the DOJ, must classify the MAGA extremist movement as a domestic terrorist group. This should not be seen as a radical move. After all, they have violently attacked the Capitol, threatened to assassinate Vice President Mike Pence, try to stop the peaceful transfer of power to a legitimately elected US president, and spread hatred by spreading lies that the 2020 election has been stolen.

Compare this to the Black Lives Matter protest and it is clear which party hates democracy.
