Poor Elizabeth Warren. First she falsely claims Indian ancestry to get an affirmative action job at Harvard and gets caught. Then she offered her own hokey live-stream video in which she made a fool of herself while drinking a beer. Pretty folksy, huh?
Now, out on the campaign trail, she’s telling supporters that what she really wants is a bump stock ban.
We hate to break it to Princess Lieawatha, but the ATF already effectively banned bump stocks about five months ago.
So an Elizabeth Warren bump stock ban won’t do anything to “get the gun situation under control.” Not even 1/1024th of the way.
The UK Daily Mail puts her ignorance front and center:
Elizabeth Warren told a New Hampshire campaign crowd on Monday that the federal government should ban ‘bump stocks…”
Speaking in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, the Massachusetts Democratic senator listed three specific objectives when a voter asked what she would do as president to ‘get the gun situation under control.’
‘Universal background checks,’ she said. ‘[Get] assault weapons off our streets. Get rid of bump stocks and the ability to fire weapons in a short period of time. There are a lot of things we could be doing.’
A federal ban on bump stocks went into effect March 26. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives broadened the definition of ‘machinegun’ to include them, because they ‘allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger.’
So Warren’s campaigning on banning something that’s already effectively illegal.
Perhaps Fauxcahontas should introduce legislation to ban murder while she’s at it.
