Ted Cruz took her comment on putting controls on assault rifles out of context. Check it out on Politfacts on NPR. So let’s see, that’s one elderly woman from California and even she does not object to the 2nd amendment–only to assault weapons.
So, here’s the quote : “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up everyone of them (every gun) Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in. I would have done it.”
She didn’t mean assault weapons. Those are automatics or selectable for automatic.
She meant semi-automatics, a significantly large body of firearms owned by millions of Americans.
As for Sanders, if he is “to be feared”–that sounds about right for the crazy rhetoric that comes from you guys who see anybody who has a slightly different worldview as “dangerous” and to be “feared”. I hope your parish doesn’t have any democrats, immigrants, people of color, feminists, gays, etc. because where would you dare sit.
How dare you? There has been no conversation, none on this thread about race or gender or any other group by those who are here defending the constitution. In fact, only one poster has made any suggestion about a particular group - the poor, and he’s anti-2nd wanting to limit their rights.
It was the NRA, for example, that stood up for Otis MacDonald against the city of Chicago, led by progressives, who were fighting to prevent only the law abiding from getting firearms. It is always progressives and democrats trying to limit minority rights on this issue.
Injecting race into this, when you don’t even know me, is cowardly, and evidence that you lack any kind of intellect argument on the topic.
Perhaps you should read the 8th commandment
