The American anti-gun left is only too happy to give the New Zealand shooter exactly what he said he wanted.
…U.S. leaders on the left like California Sen. Dianne Feinstein called on Americans to follow New Zealand’s example and enact bans on military-style guns.
“In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate,” Feinstein said Thursday on Twitter. “The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.”
“The U.S. hasn’t taken similar action because we have a real Constitution that protects real rights, and because the majority of the American people would not tolerate it,” said Brandon Combs, president of the Firearms Policy Coalition, based in Sacramento. “What New Zealand is doing would, in America, lead to civil disobedience and armed resistance, if not outright armed conflict. This isn’t even a close call.”
The accused New Zealand gunman is an anti-immigrant Australian man who authorities say fired upon Muslims in mosques during Friday prayers. He carried five guns, two modified semiautomatic rifles, two shotguns and a lever-action gun. In a rambling manifesto, he said he chose his weapons in part to spark a destabilizing debate over stricter gun control in the United States.
– John Woolfolk in New Zealand banned military style guns after massacre. What about U.S.?
Sandy Hook happened 6 years ago and we can’t even get the Senate to hold a vote on universal background checks w/ #HR8.
Christchurch happened, and within days New Zealand acted to get weapons of war out of the consumer market.
