Bernie Sanders: ‘Gun Control Job of Federal, NOT State Governments’
During Sunday’s airing of Face the Nation, host John Dickerson asked presidential candidate Bernie Sanders “Do you believe that in the end the gun control issue is not really one for the president but it’s something for the states to decide?”
Sanders’ response went like this:
No. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe that at all. And way back when, in 1988 when I first ran for Congress, I may have lost a statewide election by three points because I thought it was a bad idea for us to be selling military-style “assault weapons” in this country.
Look, when we have these horrific mass killings. When people walk into a church and start shooting people [or] walk into a school, this is an issue that we’ve got to deal with. And I support what President Obama is trying to do in dealing with this gun show loophole. We have to try to strengthen the instant background checks. Our goal as a nation…is to make sure that guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them. People who have criminal backgrounds, who are mentally ill. The federal government does have a very important role. (Emphasis added)
Read between the buzz terms.
Mental illness? What does that even mean in modern society anymore? Some feel “climate change delusion” is a mental illness. That’s a slippery slope the might never end.
The federal government does have “a very important role”… to chip away at the 2nd Amendment, apparently.
