You know how we’re not supposed to judge all Muslims by the act of extremists? When it comes to guns, liberals toss that standard right out the door.
In a country with over five million AR-15 owners, you’d think we’d all be dead if the only people who owned it were psychopaths. But according to one liberal Senator, that’s the case.
Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said certain types of firearms like the AR-15 are the kind of guns that should be banned. She added that people trying to purchase the weapon — which is popular among American gun owners — are “buying it do bad things.”
“The fact is, the AR-15, the gun that (Omar) Mateen used, that’s a weapon of war; it’s advertised as being able do technologically advances in killing people that previous weapons have been unable to do and somebody who is buying that kind of a weapon isn’t buying it for target shooting,” she said. “They’re not buying it to go out and hunt deer. You don’t need an AK-47 or an AR-15 to hunt deer. They’re buying it to do bad things and we need to recognize that and address it.”
Yes, some people really are this crazy. Not to be a total bore, but let’s look just how many people are being killed by these scary assault weapons each year.
And by the way, that statistic is deaths for all rifles. It’s even smaller for assault rifles.
So why are liberals going after firearms that literally kill less people than die falling out of bed each year? Because they’re “scary” to the non-gun owner, and therefore the easiest to push for stricter gun control on.
