As we’ve pointed out time and again, (see here, here and here) far-left pseudo indigenous person Elizabeth Warren has a problem with poor people owning firearms and having the ability to defend themselves. She’s patronizingly against Second Amendment rights for anyone below a certain income level and wants to tax guns and ammunition out of their reach.
Not that she’d admit that, of course. Instead, she hides her underclass disarmament policies behind a fig leaf of dealing with a non-existent public health issue.
“You mentioned the gun issue and we got to talk about it on the debate stage Friday night,” [WMUR’s Adam] Sexton said. “You proposed a pretty significant tax increase on ammunition. So many of your plans are about lifting up people of lower incomes and disadvantaged communities, but that tax is probably going to fall disproportionately on their shoulders. Why target them with something like that that’s going to make it harder for them to access Second Amendment rights, and, perhaps, alienate some fo the voters you need to win back from President Trump to win in 2020?”
According to Warren, America has a “gun violence problem.”
“That means it’s about mass shootings. It’s also about shootings that occur on sidewalks and playgrounds. It disproportionately hits communities of color, but never raises a headline,” she explained. “It’s about suicides and lethality of suicides and, it’s about domestic violence and the much-increased odds that a woman will be killed if she’s in a place with an abuser and there’s also a gun in the home. So I approach this as a public health issue.”
