Colorado Congressman Ken Buck challenged Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke to enact gun confiscation policies on an AR-15 rifle Buck keeps in his Washington, D.C office, displaying the weapon in a video on his Twitter feed Friday morning.
I have just one message for Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke, if you want to take everyone’s AR-15s, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one?
— Congressman Ken Buck (@RepKenBuck) March 6, 2020
Anti-gun liberals fumed in the responses of Buck’s video, apparently under the false impression that the American-flag decorated AR was loaded. It’s quite obvious the weapon is intended for display and ceremonial purposes at the congressional office.
Buck has clarified that the rifle has been rendered inoperable, allowing him to receive permission from Capital police to take it into his office. Washington D.C has an assault weapons ban. Thus, the liberals that thought Buck was violating rules of gun safety by removing the weapon from the wall were unaware it’s harmless.
Liberals such as O’Rourke have claimed defiance to planned gun confiscation attempts on their part represent some sort of extremism, while ignoring the reality that actively confiscating legally owned guns from law-abiding Americans is as extreme and anti-constitutional as it gets.
Biden, the Democratic frontrunner, has stated he’s going to rely upon the infamously anti-gun rights O’Rourke to “take care of the gun problem for him.”
O’Rourke was one of the few Democrats to run for President with the stated policy desire of actively confiscating semiautomatic rifles from every American in “mandatory buybacks.” For Biden to actively defer to him on gun policy shows he’d be willing to consider policy on the matter from the extreme liberal fringe of the Democratic Party, outpacing even democratic socialist Bernie Sanders in hostility to gun rights.
Smith & Wesson Stepping Up Production to Meet Record Setting Astronomical Demand for New Guns
They’re stepping up production.
One of the biggest gun manufacturers in the United States is pledging to step up gun production as demand for new firearms soars to astronomical proportions. Smith & Wesson is pledging to boost their manufacturing to “maximum capacity” to meet unprecedented demand.
Gun sales in 2020 have crushed the records set in any previous year by a hefty margin, with the combination of the coronavirus and nationwide race riots aided and abetted by the Democratic Party serving to convince millions of Americans who have never owned guns before that they need to arm themselves.
“As we’ve seen before during these surge periods, these results reflect that despite our record numbers in market share growth, consumer demand for our products during the quarter still exceeded our internal manufacturing capacity levels,” said Mark Smith, CEO of the firearms company that was founded in 1852, in a call on Thursday. “We’re continuing to ramp up…. We’re going to go to maximum capacity.”
The company moved almost 600,000 guns from a period between May and July, smashing its records and depleting its existing inventory of newly manufactured guns.
“When we get into these surge environments like this, and as you can see from the [gun background check numbers] we’ve never seen one quite this high, the demand in the industry just outstrips the industry’s ability to supply,” Smith said. “And we’re no different. You can look at the inventory numbers from us and from some of the other firearms, retailers, and manufacturers, and I think we’re just out of inventory.”
Elevating existing manufacturing levels could prove critical to lowering surging prices for firearms, as retailers are unable to match demand. Ammunition continues to sell for record-setting prices, signaling a need for ammunition manufacturers to meet sky-high demand as well.
Smith and Wesson manufacturers a wide variety of popular civilian firearms, including AR-15 style rifles, a multitude of pistols and revolvers, and .22 rimfire rifles.
