The Leftist candidate in the Georgia gubernatorial election has attempted to defend her plan to confiscate guns from law-abiding Americans. The Daily Wire reports:
CNN’s Jake Tapper grilled far-left Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Sunday over her support for confiscating guns from law-abiding Americans and for her support for banning semi-automatic rifles.
Abrams, who said last month that she wants to ban semi-automatic rifles if she is elected governor, appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” where she once again said that semi-automatic rifles must be banned in the state.
“When you were a state lawmaker in 2016, you co-sponsored a bill that would have allowed Georgia state authorities to take away so-called assault weapons from current gun owners,” Tapper began. “Most similar bans would grandfather in existing weapons of that sort, semiautomatic rifles that are called assault weapons. So, is that your current position, that law-abiding gun owners in Georgia should have to give up those weapons, if authorities deem it necessary?”
“In the state of Georgia, you introduce legislation to start conversations,” Abrams said as she tried to dodge answering the question. “I am happy to work with the legislature to figure out how we make an assault weapons ban work.”
This gun grabbing attempt will spectacularly fail, most likely in the election on Tuesday, but also in the state legislature if Abrams manages to squeeze a victory.
