The Overton window on gun rights in the Democratic Party is moving left, fast.
New polling has revealed that almost 40% of Democrats now support national gun confiscation similar to the plans proposed by Democrats such as Beto O’Rourke.
A Zogby Analytics survey polled earlier this month reveals that 36% of Democrats support confiscating firearms from law-abiding gun owners.
Such a concept would have seemed incomprehensible even for many progressive Democrats several months ago, but long-shot Democratic campaigns for the presidency centered around gun control appear to have helped normalize it in the party. Beto O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell both campaigned openly on the notion of confiscating semiautomatic firearms from lawful gun owners.

Law enforcement agencies and sheriff’s departments in rural, conservative areas of the country have already come out in staunch opposition to any attempt to enforce gun confiscation.
