Democrats are not fans of the Second Amendment.
They work every day to restrict our right to bear arms.
And a top Democrat just said something so anti-gun she will lose an election.
A Top Democrat Gunning For The Governor’s Mansion
Stacey Abrams is running for governor in Georgia.
She is doing better than expected in the polls.
And she is endorsed by former President Obama.
On virtually every issue, she’s on the opposite side of President Trump.
So it isn’t surprising that she supports radical gun control.
But just how far she actually wants to go has even some Democrats concerned.
She is calling for a ban on an entire class of firearms.
On the view, Meghan McCain asked her if she supports a ban on AR-15s.
Abrams directly responded making her position clear, saying:
“I do not believe like weapons of mass destruction like the AR-15 belong in civilian hands.
I think it should be prohibited from civilian use.”
She then claims to have shot an AR-15, citing the power and destruction that comes from the rifle.
“I have shot an AR-15, and I think you probably have too, and while it’s an amazing amount of power, it also is an amazing amount of destruction, and there is very little that can be done to protect vulnerable communities when the AR-15 is present.”
She’s using a common argument that many who are anti-gun use.
They try to claim they are pro-Second Amendment and cite gun ownership as a way to excuse their radical views.
There’s Only One Problem For This Anti-Gun Democrat
If Abrams was making this argument in a state like California, it would be fine for her election.
Voters there support gun control and agree with her.
But she’s in Georgia.
Georgia is a very pro-gun state.
There is even a city that requires gun ownership from citizens.
Gun ownership is a way of life for the citizens of Georgia.
And they are very unlikely to elect somebody who wants to take that right away.
In contrast, her opponent, Brian Kemp is pro-Second Amendment.
He is a Republican who touts his endorsement from President Trump.
The race between the two of them is neck-and-neck.
And anti-gun statements from Abrams are only going to help Kemp.
Many voters are likely to go to the polls to protect their rights from somebody set on taking them away.
Democrats Facing Problems Everywhere, Not Just Georgia
Abrams is not the only Democrat facing backlash for anti-gun views.
Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri may lose because of her anti-gun views.
She usually avoids talking about her views on guns considering how pro-gun Missouri is.
But in an undercover video captured by Project Veritas, McCaskill admits she wants to ban a number of guns.
After that video dropped, her poll numbers began falling.
Now her opponent Josh Hawley is favored to win.
It turns out that supporting gun control in a state that supports President Trump isn’t a good idea.
Do you think Abrams will lose because of her anti-gun views?
