White House: “We Shouldn’t Have ‘Assault Weapons’”

posted on June 24, 2016

The Obama administration wants to ban your guns. “It’s our view that we shouldn’t have ‘assault weapons’ available,” said White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett, speaking before San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club on Wednesday. “They’re really dangerous.”

What’s really dangerous, actually, is Jarrett’s incredible lack of knowledge about President Barack Obama’s pet issue. On a conference call with anti-gun advocates earlier in the week, Jarrett disingenuously tried to get us to believe that she has had real people come up to her and say, “I enjoy going to the firing range and using the assault weapons, but the pleasure derived from that compared to the horrendous damage that it can do … the damage warrants banning assault weapons.” 

Said no gun owner, ever. Actual gun owners know that the AR-15 rifles Jarrett and Obama want to ban are not really “assault weapons,” but common semi-automatic rifles. The real danger here is this administration’s relentless agenda to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
