Anti-Gun Boxer: My Armed Security Saved Me From Bernie Voters
Senator praises her private security while eradicating your gun rights
Anti-gun Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said she was “fortunate” she had armed security to save her from Bernie Sanders supporters.
Boxer was at the Nev. State Democratic Party’s 2016 State Convention when Bernie voters disrupted the event on Saturday.
“It was a scary situation,” Boxer told CNN on Wednesday. “I was there… It was frightening.”
“I had — I was on the stage and people were six feet away from me and if I didn’t have a lot of security, I don’t know what would have happened.”
In other words, she’s bragging about her private security as she eradicates the Second Amendment rights of millions of Americans who can’t afford that luxury.
Boxer is the very definition of hypocrisy, but this isn’t the first time she made such a stupid statement.
For example, it was only a day after the San Bernardino Massacre that Boxer claimed gun control “works.”
“The fact is, sensible gun laws work, and we’ve proven it in California,” she said after two radicalized Muslims killed 14 people despite the state’s strict gun laws.
Her claim runs contrary to a Justice Dept. study revealing that, over the past several decades, serious violent crimes have decreased as gun ownership increased.
And there’s been a significant decline in gun-related violent crimes since the mid-1990s when numerous states began passing concealed carry laws.
In comparison, Chicago, Ill., banned all handguns in 1982 with few exceptions, resulting in a 40% increase in murders as killers took advantage of defenseless victims.
Boxer won’t let reality derail her agenda, however.
She also wanted to ban magazines holding more than 10 rounds, which make up the majority of all pistol magazines, as well as ban so-called “assault rifles” which are little more than semi-automatic rifles.
But nearly five times as many murders are committed with knives than so-called “assault rifles,” according to the FBI.
FBI crime statistics revealed that out of 11,961 murders performed within the U.S. in 2014, 660 were committed unarmed, 1,567 were committed with knives and only 248 murders were known to have been committed using rifles of any type, including single-shot long arms and “assault rifles” routinely demonized by gun control groups.
And, although the FBI did list 2,052 murders under “unknown firearm type,” but given the percentages of the known firearm categories, it is unlikely that more than four percent of the “unknown firearms” were in fact rifles, and less than that were semi-automatics.
