The ‘We Don’t Want To Take Your Guns’ Lie Revealed—Again

posted on September 13, 2016

While gun-control advocates like to say they don’t want to take away anyone’s guns, they often prove that to be just another lie by … proposing to take away someone’s guns.

Such is the case with the editorial board of The Seattle Times, which over the weekend published a doozy of an op-ed titled “Time To Ban One Of America’s Favorite Weapons.” Yes, you guessed it: The editorial board is calling for a full ban on ownership of AR-15 rifles, which the editors, in their ignorance, called “assault weapons.”

The proclamation came in support of state Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s proposal this week to ban common semi-automatic rifles and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammo. The editorial board did get one thing right, though: “Such a law clearly would limit a constitutional right and should be carefully crafted,” the editors wrote, seemingly not caring a bit that they are advocating for more freedom lost.
