It’s not just Hillary Clinton whose against your Second Amendment rights.
She may have thought she was playing it safe by nominating a VP that none of us have heard of before, but we’re not incapable of looking into his stances. During his acceptance speech, Mike Pence joked that he balances out Trump’s personality. That’s true – and in the case of Hillary’s VP – he does little to balance out her liberalism.
Here’s just one crazy idea he has: holding firearms dealers for misuse of firearms.
On September 8, 2015–just two weeks after Vester Lee Flanagan used a legally purchased firearm to kill news reporter Alison Parker on-air–Kaine put forward a bill to hold licensed gun dealers liable for the misuse of firearms. The bill was designed to “raise the bar” and require more “accountability” on the part of gun sellers. The Roanoke Times reported that Kaine’s bill “would make gun sellers criminally liable for a bad sale if they didn’t take reasonable, affirmative steps to determine the customer met federal criteria.”
What a brilliant idea. Next let’s hold fast-food restaurants liable for the obesity epidemic, and auto-manufacturers liable for car accidents.
This is why you should always be wary of so-called “common sense gun control” measures. Liberals like Kaine don’t support making gun manufacturers liable for gun violence because they think its the right thing to do – they support it because they know it’ll cripple the firearms industry.
Here’s another one of Kaine’s bright ideas:
During the June 26 airing of Meet the Press, Kaine told Chuck Todd that he voted for an “assault weapons” ban before and “would likely vote for it again.” But he stressed that he believes “limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips” is the first step to take.
A study published by the University of Pennsylvania for the U.S. Department of Justice back in 2004 looked at what happened when we did have an assault weapons ban in place (thanks to a different Clinton), and what did they find? To quote, “we cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence.
To paraphrase Al Gore, on the issue of gun control, the science is settled.
