At a gun policy forum in Las Vegas, Nevada, Democratic Presidential candidates are calling on leaders to buy back your guns. The forum was hosted by the left-wing media outlet, MSNBC, along with March for our Lives and Giffords, the advocacy group founded by former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords, who was shot and wounded in 2011. The usual suspects (Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamal Harris, Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke) all gave speeches on how they plan to buy-back guns from the general public. Other candidates in attendance were Pete Buttigieg (Mayor of South Bend Indian), Julian Castro, Sen. Amy Kolbuchar, and Andrew Yang. The speeches given were specifically targeting ownership and sales of the AK-47 and the AR-15, the gun that weighs 10-pounds and fires .50 caliber bullets.
The forum for gun control was held 2 miles from the mass shooting that occurred in 2017. Kamala Harris and Joe Biden said that nothing will change regarding gun control until President Trump is removed from office. O’Rourke argued with Buttigieg over the effectiveness of a buy-back program.
Buttigieg said “In America, it is already the case that, anybody, as far as I know, can have a slingshot. And nobody can have a nuclear weapon . . . . If you think about it, that means we have already decided, as a society, consistent with our Constitution, within the boundaries of the Second Amendment, that there’s a line.” Warren focused on corruption being the reason why nothing has changed involving gun legislation. The $900 million eight-year buy-back program was ultimately proposed by Joe Biden. He had a similar proposal in 1993 and 1994 when he helped enact a ban on sales law. Both laws were only temporary fixes at the time.
Nancy Pelosi hammered the point. The same Pelosi who is in the midst of an impeachment inquiry. “We are not going away until we get legislation signed into law that protects our children.”
It seems that rather effectively compete in the coming 2020 elections, Democrats would rather take guns away. Rather than resolve any real problems, they just want to create more. An AR-15 may not be the hunting weapon of choice for most. But if they take one gun category away, they will take them all. Original Post.
What is your take on what they are trying to do with gun control?
