Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders called for making existing gun laws “stronger” and “more enforceable” in the wake of last week’s bloody shooting at a Lafayette, LA, multiplex screening of the movie Trainwreck.
In an interview on NBC’s Meet The Press, Sanders told moderator Chuck Todd that “guns used to kill people exclusively, not for hunting, should not be sold in the United States of America.”
This statement is ludicrous, every weapon produced can be used to subdue, injure and kill another human being. Gun manufacturers do not make guns that are only intended for hunting.
Sanders is stating directly that he wants to ban all firearms designed for self-defense, and in his way of thinking he regards the Second Amendment as a privilege that allows hunting alone.
