GOP Lawmaker Calls For Assault Rifle Ban

Democrats motto is- Never let a crisis go to waste… The truth is- Democrats are using Stoneman Douglas High School shooting for political propaganda. It is clear that they see this tragedy as an “opportunity” to promote their political ideology. They will keep using any reason to take control of Our Right to bear arms and will not stop until they do.

Only a minutes after the gruesome shooting that shook the nation, the Democrats used a GOP lawmaker to send disgusting attack on our second amendment and the Republican party!

Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fla.), who faces a competitive reelection race this fall, wrote in an op-ed Friday that the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to bear arms should not apply to all guns.

“The Second Amendment is unimpeachable,” Mast wrote in The New York Times. “It guarantees the right of citizens to defend themselves. I accept, however, that it does not guarantee that every civilian can bear any and all arms.”

Mast, a retired staff sergeant in the Army, recalled his deployment in Afghanistan and the weapon he carried during that time, an M4 Carbine.

“My rifle was very similar to the AR-15-style semiautomatic weapon used to kill students, teachers and a coach I knew at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where I once lived,” wrote Mast, who holds a seat that is “leaning Republican” according to the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.

“I cannot support the primary weapon I used to defend our people being used to kill children I swore to defend,” he added.

President Trump opposes an assault weapon ban, as do most Republicans in the House.

Trump also announced Tuesday that he had directed the Justice Department to propose regulations banning bump stocks, devices that can be used to modify semi-automatic rifles to make them shoot more rapidly.

So what do you think about this?

Yeah we knew they were going to do this. But I think they better cool down. Our guns were not involved. This never would have happened if our lawmen had done their job. Now either we have a bunch of lazy arsed lawmen, FBI and everyone else that knew about this kid, or this is another tactic to try and take our guns. And really when the people in our Government can get away with the crap that they do and absolutely nothing gets done to them, kinda makes me think it was another one of them.
