Bernie Sanders Calls For Totalitarian Gun Confiscation

Bernie Sanders is a Traitor to the Republic!  Don’t get #BurnedByBernie He is a socialist and no matter how hard you try to hide the past, Socialism has failed over and over and over again.  The only level playing field is through Capitalism, where EVERYONE has a chance to prosper by hard work and perseverance.  We do not want a nation of citizens expecting the government to take care of them by stealing the wealth of those who worked hard to earn it.  #WakeUpAmerica #StopRaisingLazyAmericans #BuildPride #PutYourHandsToWork #IdleHandsAreTheWorkOfTheDevil

Bernie Sanders Calls For Totalitarian Gun Confiscation

Posted on January 23, 2016 by Benjamin Knight in Politics, Social Issues // 83 Comments

Sanders will ban guns that are “primarily designed to kill people.” 

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont (a pro-gun state, for the record) said on an episode of NBC’s “Meet The Press” that “we need to make sure that certain types of guns used to kill people, exclusively, not for hunting, they should not be sold in the United States of America.”

“Coming from a rural state, I think I can communicate with folks coming from urban states where guns mean different things than they do in Vermont where it’s used for hunting,” he said.

Calling for a ban on all firearms “used to kill people” and “not for hunting” implies a ban on all guns, period.

More recently, Sanders appeared on the same show on 1/17 and touted his vote to “ban assault weapons” in 1988.  He claimed to have rethought certain aspects of that legislation but never rescinded his viewpoint on banning firearms.

The Vermont senator, like other anti-gun activists, failed to mention that Americanspurchased 170 million new guns since 1991 and the crime rate has since dropped 51%.  He also never mentioned that “gun control” failed in cities like Chicago wheresomeone is murdered every three hours.

Liberals haven’t been happy with Sanders’ pro-gun voting record, the Democratic presidential candidate’s shift to the far-left on this issue is likely an attempt to placate to anti-gunners as the 2016 election quickly approaches.
