Washington, DC — In the wake of every “mass shooting” gun-grabbing Democrats are quick to call for a ban on semi-automatic rifles.
Usually before the blood has even dried.
Of course most of these anti-gunners have no idea what they are talking about, they simply spew talking points put out by Bloomberg’s heavily-funded lobbying anti-gun lobbying operation.
Connecticut Democrat Senator Chris Murphy is the most recent example to spout these talking points, looking to ban, confiscate and destroy firearms owned by tens of millions of Americans.
He tweeted this over the weekend, saying:
“Nobody needs an AR-15 to hunt. Nobody needs a semi-automatic rifle to defend their home. But mass shooters NEED these weapons in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible. And so nobody will miss them when they are illegal – except for the killers”.
We, along with countless gun owners beg to differ.
Here are just a few examples of law-abiding gun owners using a semi-automatic rifle for defense.
“AR-15-Wielding Man Protects Neighbor from Thugs, 2 Charged In Stabbing”
“Victim fires AR-15 at suspects in Haiku home invasion robbery”
‘2 men die, 1 hospitalized after homeowner Uses AR-15 in Defense from drive-by suspects”
“Three Teen Burglars Killed By AR-15 Wielding Homeowner’s Son”
’15-Year Old Boy Uses AR-15 to Defend Himself, Sister Against Home Invaders”
“Elkins Park man killed by AR-15 after forcing his way into apartment”
“Store Owner uses AK47 for Self Defense”
Chris Murphy’s statement is targeted to ban all semi-automatic weapons from civilian use.
He is a co-sponsor of the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 (S. 66) which would ban not only AR-15’s but any “assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip”.
Democrats never let a good crisis go to waste.
Before police can begin an investigation of a mass shooting, anti-gun politicians immediately call for a ban of “semi-automatic rifles”.
Gun grabbers were quick to forget the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas where an AR-15 wielding gun owner saved countless lives by shooting at the criminal and chasing him away from the scene.
Politicians like Murphy do not care about our Second Amendment rights.
They only care about controlling gun owners and telling us how to live our lives.
