Flailing Candidate Pushes Dems Further Left, Wants To Ban Mags

Published

On October 21, 2019, Montana Governor Steve Bullock called for extensive gun control on Twitter.

He declared, “I am a hunter and a gun owner. No hunter needs a 30-round magazine, a bump stock, or an assault weapon. A large majority of Americans – Republican and Democrat – agree.”

 

Then Bullock tweeted about his encounter with Trump from a year ago where he asked him about what he’s doing to stop gun violence.

He stated that “More than a year ago, I asked Donald Trump what he’s doing to end the gun violence epidemic in our country. His answer wasn’t good enough then — and his leadership isn’t good enough now.”

Such comments naturally provoked a strong response from pro-gun commentators.

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms conceded that “Hunters don’t need 30-round mags.”

However, Knighton pointed out how “the Second Amendment is an insurance policy on liberty” and that “It’s a tool meant to make sure that the American people have the weapons necessary to defend their nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

On the point of the so-called gun violence “epidemic”, Knighton demonstrates that “violent crime is down and has been trending down since the 1990s.”

Additionally, Knighton highlights how “At the same time, so-called ‘assault weapons’ became the most popular firearms in the country as well as the time when more people were carrying firearms concealed.”

Bullock’s hand-wringing about gun control has not gone well for him during his 2020 presidential run, with him at a measly 0.3 percent according to a recent RealClearPolitics poll.
