There’s nothing wrong with seeing some of the awful things people are capable of in this country and knowing there needs to be a change.
There’s a whole lot with blind pushes for gun control by people who are either horrifyingly misinformed or completely unwilling to acknowledge the good that responsibly-armed citizens do in our communities.
Below are five of the more scary anti-gun quotes I’ve found this year.
They range from the generic “no one needs an AR-15” as though that were sufficient excuse to strip Americans’ rights away if true all the way to a very famous politician ranting against the sickness that is the concept of buying semiautomatic firearms.
That last one was said by the president, himself.
And now, without any further ado:
Guns – especially assault weapons equipped with high capacity magazines – don’t belong in our communities.Senator Bob Menendez
[She supports legislation that] would make it a crime to knowingly import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault weapon or large-capacity ammunition feeding device.Senator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stated policy on firearms
No one in America needs an AR-15.Senator Bernie Sanders
Military-style weapons shouldn’t be publicly available for purchase, period. Our militaries are trained extensively to use these weapons, and they’re solely designed to kill large numbers of people, quickly. You can’t just buy a tank or a handheld rocket launcher, because they are designed for one circumstance — to destroy an enemy in combat. They’re not built for hunting.Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
“The idea … we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. It’s just sick. It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single, solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.”President Joe Biden
