Joking or not, the attitude of gun confiscation is raising concern about the power of law enforcement in this country. And are newly enacted gun confiscation laws violating due process and civil liberties?
R. Daryl Fisher's recent comments about gun confiscation are disturbing. In a video captured March 7, Fisher was speaking to the members of the local Moms Demand Action meeting when he said this:
"What about people that already have weapons? Well, I will tell you now, don't buy into the scare tactics. Don't believe the scare tactics. Because you've heard people say, 'You'll have to pry my gun from my cold, dead hands.' Okay."
Now, since that video was released, Fisher has come forward saying he shouldn't have joked.
Fisher supports tougher gun control. As we reported at TruthInMedia.com, Fisher, like many politicians, wants to raise the minimum age to purchase a firearm, ban "high capacity" magazines and anything that increases a firearms rate of fire.
He also wants to outlaw military style weapons and require firearm qualifications before people can carry guns.
Fisher said it would be unconstitutional to take guns from people before a ban was in place, and that "Responsible gun owners have nothing to worry about." And yet, the "joke" of killing gun owners for refusing to allow their guns to be confiscated, resonated with the audience. You hear it in their cheers.
