2020 Presidential Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders has said that “We must follow New Zealand’s lead”, and ban assault weapons, even though there’s no such thing as an “assault weapon.”
“This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like,” tweeted Sanders, who is a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. “We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States.”
Assault weapons is a loosely-used term. The term itself is actually made up. Initially, left-wing media made up the term a few years ago after Sandy Hook in order to address fears over the infamous AR-15, so much to the tune that people actually think AR stands for “Assault Rifle.” It does not.
The AR stands for “ArmaLite rifle.” Nevertheless, Democrats continue moving forward with their want to ban “assault weapons” as a campaign platform for the 2020 race. In recent years, people have joked that the left “won’t actually come for your guns” when addressing distressed conservatives. We now know this is not true, and they will indeed come for our weapons.
What most of these phony politicians don’t realize is that there are handguns much more potent than the typical “assault weapon” they are referencing. There are knives used in murders everyday. Look at prisons. Guns are banned there. Let’s look at a more touchy subject, and take a peek under the hood of the state of California, or even the city of Chicago in Illinois, where the majority of gun-related statistics for the entire country are coming from one geographical area… A largely-Democrat-controlled area in which guns are typically banned or difficult to obtain. There are more shootings per capita in those locations than anywhere else in the country. You won’t hear Democrats saying that as they call for even tougher bans on weaponry.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the incompetent leader of the country of roughly 5 million who failed to get a response team to the shooting’s location within even 10 minutes, said “We will ban all high-capacity magazines. We will ban all parts with the ability to convert semi-automatic or any other type of firearm into a military-style semi-automatic weapon.” She continued “We will ban parts that cause a firearm to generate semi-automatic, automatic or close to automatic gunfire.”
