Bernie Sanders Calls for Banning “Assault Weapons” in the U.S.


While Bernie Sanders was responsible for moving the Democratic Party far to the left during the 2016 primaries, there was one issue where he was not quite as progressive as Hillary Clinton: The subject of gun control.

Sanders, who hails from Vermont, where the Second Amendment is still taken seriously amid their love for so-called democratic socialism, was consistently fighting from behind on the issue of guns, struggling to keep up with Hillary’s “ban ‘em all” philosophy. Well, Sanders has apparently decided that was a weak point in his first candidacy, and he’s out to prove that he can destroy the Second Amendment as well as any other Democrat in the field.

Sanders was enamored with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s announcement that, in the wake of the Christchurch mosque shooting, her country would no longer allow semi-automatic, military-style rifles on the streets.

“Today I am announcing that New Zealand will ban all military-style semi-automatic weapons. We will also ban all assault rifles. We will also ban all high capacity magazines,” she said. “We will ban all parts with the ability to convert semi-automatic or any other type of firearm into a military style semi-automatic weapon.”

That’s a lot of banning.

The announcement was predictable, as was the immediate chorus of approval coming from American Democrats who have been trying to use mass shootings as an excuse to ban AR-15s for years. Less predictable, but just as dismal, was Sanders’ response. Apparently he’s given up on any notion of being the Second Amendment-supporting adult in the room.

“This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like,” he wrote. “We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States.”

Just to say it all again, such a ban would not stop a single mass shooting. It would, however, prevent millions of Americans from exercising their full constitutional freedoms, from protecting their families and homes in the manner they deem fit, and it would succeed in making criminals out of law-abiding citizens.

President Trump said at the State of the Union address this year that America would “never” become a socialist country. That’s easy enough to believe…if the population remains armed and ready for the kind of totalitarian takeover that inevitably accompanies a lurch towards socialism/communism. But if we are disarmed, we are veritably helpless in the face of tyranny. This was the warning our Founding Fathers understood, and this forms the backbone of the Second Amendment’s inclusion in the Constitution. Don’t think for a minute, after all, that the Democrats would stop at “assault weapons.”

When you get right down to it, after all, what gun isn’t a “weapon of war”?

What do you think?

  1. Socialist/Liberal/Demwits like Bernie Sanders always try to grab guns from citizens and abolish the 2nd Amendment in order to disarm citizens and suppress them! Same old Communist/Socialist playbook leading always to gulags, reeducation camps and genocides all in the name of equality!

    • Don’t leave out the Republican sell out “Lindsey Graham”! He is a big supporter of disarm the
      American Public. Just when people think he has become reasonable, he turns against Americans and freedom.

    • He is parroting other Socialist/Liberals, he does not know one gun from another. We need every able bodied voter to sign petitions and vote. Make sure all your gun toting, hunting friends vote, sign them up.

      Jimmiemac told me that Socialism is Communism for slow learners!

      • and they add up to FASCISM in the ALINSKY doctrine practiced by (D) umbasses who claim that ONLY THEIR LIES ARE TO BE CALLED “TRUTH” ….carry on ,,, and BERNIE is THE ASSAULT WEAPON on OUR REPUBLIC!!!

    • THOSE IDIOTIC DEMS HAVE NO COMMON SENSE, ESPECIALLY BURNIE!!!!!! DON’T THOSE ‘JACKASSES’ REALIZE THAT NO MATTER HOW MANY ANTI-GUN LAWS THE U.S. WILL HAVE, THE CRIMINALS, CROOKS, DRUGGIES, CRAZIES AND MURDERERS WILL FIND A WAY TO SECURE AND POSSESS FIREARMS THROUGH THE BLACK MARKETS. AND ALL THE LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS THAT HAVE FIREARMS WE’LL BE FORCED TO GIVE THEM UP… THAT IS AN ASININE SOLUTION FOR GUN SAFETY. THANKS BERNIE, YOU TWIT!!!!!!! (THAT ‘JACKASS DOESN’T THINK……AS DO MOST OF THE DEMS!

      • Because you’re screaming in ALL CAPS… doesn’t make you sound any smarter. Bad information, fear and lack of logic and common sense are a bigger problem for you. We used to have a ban on ‘assault rifles’…. why do you have a problem with common sense gun laws? Relax… NOBODY wants to take all your guns away… But, if you have a rocket launcher, cannon, bazooka, tank… or nuclear warhead, I’m thinking… you shouldn’t. (This is a rhetorical point, in case you didn’t get it. ‘Common Sense gun laws, background checks, etc)

  2. If you vote for Bernie Sanders the Self proclaimed Socialist. Know this: this Socialist wants all of our guns for a singular reason. This is exactly what Adolf Hitler did in 1926 and most Germans turned in their weapons. Well, hope you know enough about history to know what they got. Ask Bernie the Socialist WHY HE; OWNS NOT ONE NOT TWO BUT three estates. Start asking the right questions and you will see where the Democrats want to lead this Country. Just make sure you know it will be under Sharia Law and Bernie and friends will have more money than they can count and you will be on the bottom rung of Society. If they allow you to live.

  3. PASS AND SPREAD TO ALL YOU KNOW!!!

    The DDD(Dumb,Dumber,demonrats) want a socialist USA.
    Obama was influenced by the writings and philosophies Saul Alinsky,
    author of the book, “Rules for Radicals,” and later by Frank Marshall
    Davis, with similar philosophies.
    Barak Obama followed the philosophies of these ‘role models’
    throughout his days as a Community Organizer for ACORN, using tactics
    that appeared to some as ‘shaking down’ businesses in exchange for not
    branding them ‘hate groups.’
    And apparently Obama is still following those radical rules today.
    Recall that Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on his writings and Barack Hussein Obama writes about him in his books.
    How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
    There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state.
    The first is the most important.
    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people
    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor
    people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are
    providing everything for them to live.
    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you
    are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.
    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor.
    This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the
    wealthy with the support of the poor.
    Now, think …Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?

  4. So Bernie Sanders wants to outlaw the Democrat Party? It has been by far the one and only “Assault Weapon” still operating unregulated and without mental background checks in this country. It has launched an unprecedented assault on freedom of speech, the right to freedom of religion, due process, the freedom to move, the American worker, personal property, our economy, national prosperity, national security, and public health with its policies and un-American agenda. About time it is banned.

  5. They banned them once and then brought them back dumbass. Just retire and eat grass from your expensive property socialist pig! Stop harassing decent folk!

  6. The DEMS want ALL your guns. If the citizens are unarmed , The Gov will do as they please.
    [and They Will] be careful of changing Constitution, if you do it will be Socialist GOV .
    and you will hate it. FREE is not FREE
    Question? why do you want to change the Greatest Country Ever on earth ? We are the envy of all other nations on earth, even our enemies.

  7. WELL USED GALLOWS at the FRONT STEPS of the US Capitol Building, and in front of Courthouses across the Nation, Specifically for the use of CORRECTING POOR PERFORMANCE of corrupt politicians, political appointees, Bureaucrats, judges, etc would END the problems this Nation has with wannabe dicktaters.

    PUBLIC HANGINGS, Televised and Broadcast around the World would send a VERY STRONG MESSAGE to ALL PEOPLE.

    including slow learner politicians in your very own neighborhood!

  8. The first thing communists do is to take away all weapons from the private section. This protects the regime from internal strife. Socialists first take all the money away and then take all guns both systems want to leave the private sector without any course of action against the regimes. Both end up the same way people standing in line for everything because of shortages and then they try to fight back but cannot because they are overwelmed by the regimes disregard to their needs and wants. You get what you wanted a system that treats you like dirt. It did not start that way they promiesed you everything and you end up with nothing but dirt. Just take a look at Cuba and Venzuela today because that is what you people will look like if the DemocRATS have their way.

  9. *RAGING RAD-LIB ANARCHISTS* – YOU CAN BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS WHEN YOU > STOP THE *ASSAULTS* COMING FROM THE “DEEP STATE” * “MUSLIMS” > AGAINST “WE THE PEOPLE” OF THE “REAL AMERICA”!!!
    LET US KNOW IF THAT HAPPENS!
    UNTIL THEN WE ARE STAYING WITH THE *CONSTITUTION* > YOU KNOW, THAT THING YOU WERE *SWORN* TO *UPHOLD* WHILE YOU SWORE ON A ‘BIBLE’ > (NOT A QUARAN)!
    ONLY GOD CAN “DELIVER” ALL THOSE *ENSLAVED* TO THE

  10. tell Bernie to wall up the southern border and then we can protect him so no weapons that he fears will come in to the country.

  11. ‘Old’ Bernie Sanders is just as dumb as the rest of the politcos, They will not educate them selves about the issue, that’s too much trouble!!!They do not go after the source of the problem such as the man or woman behind the gun. The DAMN gun doesn’t do the shooting you dummies, it’s the bad guy who does the killing.. If this holds true about the guns being the problem, how about banning knifes, and Automobiles and clubs.

  12. World History and gun Control 56 million people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century after being disarmed by their Government! 1911- Turkey established Gun Control and from 1915 to 1917 1.5 million Armenians were rounded up and exterminated. 1929- Soviet Union established Gun Control and from 1929 to 1953 20 million dissidents were rounded up and exterminated. 1935 – China established Gun Control and from 1948 to 1952 20 million political dissidents were rounded up and exterminated. 1938 – Germany established Gun Control and from 1939 to 1945 13 million Jews and others were rounded up and exterminated. 1956 – Cambodia established Gun Control and from 1975 to 1977 1 million educated people were rounded up and exterminated. 1964 – Guatemala established Gun Control and from 1964 to 1981 100 thousand Mayan Indians were rounded up and exterminated. 1970 – Uganda established Gun Control and from 1971 to 1979 300 thousand Christians were rounded up and exterminated. Do You Still want Gun Control????

  13. I think we should ban Bernie Sanders and all other Socialists. And anti-fa. And anti-semites. And anti-pro-lifers. And liberals. And terrorists and those who support them. And anyone who advocates hatred and anti-Christian values. And drug runners, sex-traffickers, thievers, gangsters, robbers and illegals and criminals. Then, maybe, just maybe we would consider banning the mythical “assault weapons”, but we need our guns to keep those we have banned out of our country, so, probably not.

    • You could have said just “ban democrats.” then your post would have been much shorter and just as correct.

  14. Sorry Comrade Marxist Bernie Sanders.The reason we all have guns is YOU, see it protects our rights that you or any Communists can take from us. You may as well quite cause Patriots and God himself will not allow ANY Communist to take a Presidential, well anything. Piss off worry how to run you’re Utopia of Marxism, not here, not now, not ever.

  15. I gave up a piece of my life and some body parts defending America in the Naval Amphibious Forces. I just heard that this guy Barr in the White House wants more gun control! Other than run his mouth, what has this guy Barr ever done for America. Gun control is the prelude to tyranny! From my cold, dead hands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Bernie if you really wanted to lower crime YOU WOULD CALL FOR BANNING dumbocratic LEGISLATORS AND KEEP THE GUNS. It would make the country 1000% safer!

  17. New Zealand is Not the United States Bernie. I did not engage in any shooting of people, or threatening posture outside of the military. New Zealand has NO RIGHT to determine the fate of the United States. They don’t even have a Right to gun ownership… it is at the privilege of the state and not the right of the PEOPLE. Bernie what part of the Constitution do you approve of? Wait, let me clarify it like this: Does everyone of your state agree to your political ideation and if not, how can you claim you Represent them. Do you understand the word “uninfringed?” I suggest that you look it up and read it out loud so everyone can hear you, which should be easy for you to speak since your rhetoric can be heard over a train whistle. For the know Bernie. Infringe means to: BREAK A LAW, Custom or Privilege. So what does Un-infringe mean.. One could assume that it means that YOU CANNOT Break a Law, Custom, or Privilege. Because it is a RIGHT and no longer a Privilege. I suggest you and your followers go to Venezuela where your philosophy has been tested and you would be welcomed with open arms! Remember this Bernie… You don’t represent ME!

  18. As a Patriotic Deplorable I speak for myself and other Deplorable Patriots that your so called assault weapons do not act as a real full auto AR 15 or an M 4 …According to the CONSTITUTION we LEGAL U.S. Citizens have a right to any weapon we choose to be ready for any threat to ourselves or God forbid our GREAT USA …. FACT !!!! We won’t stand for any socialist to try and take over our Government . This is a free nation for Legal American born citizens not Migrants or illegals looking for handouts while our Veterans and low income citizens do without …AMERICA COMES FIRST and will not be shit on by those that don’t belong inside our borders for any reason .. You’re too old to run for leader : We have the best to run our country and HE WILL STAY THERE ….TRUMP 2020 !!!

  19. Bernie Sanders Calls for Banning “Assault Weapons” in the U.S. I say, let’s ban Bernie Sanders from the U.S.!

  20. While Bernie Sanders is out & about ‘spitten & spudderin’ anti-gun jargon we are possibly missing the poisonous snake they have implanted into the government who is attacking our ‘right to own/carry a gun/weapon’ for any reason. We are NRA Members. We just received a letter from the Leader of the NRA explaining that NY Gov. Cuomo has set aside a $168 billion state budget for he and his state regulators to use to Shut Down the NRA. Their plan is to use strong-arm threats of every Financial Institution, Insurance Carrier, Promoter, Business Owner & Individual that pursues their God given right, under the 2nd Amendment to purchase & own the merchandise of their choice. I am a 67 y/o retired wife, mother grandmother & nurse. I spent my career saving peoples lives but now my concern is saving my families lives since our local & County politicians have decided they can buy more votes by making this a sanctuary city area. Every week we have at least one but more likely 3 to 4 news releases of gun battles & murders, always gang & drug related. A recent incident, reported as “road rage”, ended in a shootout & murder just minutes from my home. If Cuomo is really interested in stopping gun violence, why is he not going after these people? Apparently he thinks that by threatening banks, providers of insurance for the NRA or any one of us, shooting ranges, hunting clubs, merchants that sell weapons/ammunition of any type, those who provide training & permitting for conceal carry permits or those of us that have weapons inside their home for protection or even collectibles. Bloomberg, Soros and Steyer have chipped n with their millions to help in the effort by Cuomo to disarm America and Americans. I have to ask “Why?” What problem do they have with me owning a firearm to protect my home & family? Why do they not want YOU to exercise your RIGHT to buy and keep a firearm in your home so you can protect your family & Home? Should we do nothing & allow Cuomo to use his billions of dollars to disarm America, all while we cannot get a answer as to WHY he & his Liberal Democrat politicians want that to happen? If you are wondering as I am WHY just remember this information our First POTUS George Washington left for us. “A Free People ought not only be armed & disciplined but they should have sufficient arms & ammunition to maintain a status of Independence from any who might attempt to abuse them which would include their OWN Government”.

  21. This Vermont Senator is violating his Senatorial Oath of Office. He swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution when he was sworn in. He has announced openly that he supports socialism, which would destroy the U.S. Constitution. Now he is going after the Second Amendment. Has anyone in one of the well-funded conservative legal organizations like the ACLJ or Rutherford Institute or many others similar considered suing him for this??

  22. A third of all politicians now are “C” traitors. Half of them
    call themselves r, half d.
    The traitors that call themselves r do not like Roe v Wade.
    The traitors that call themselves d do not like guns.
    NO “C” likes the Constitution. It is at odds with the Bi-babble and the “C” dogma.
    Cath0l1cs are in lockstep and are keeping the borders open. Vat1can “C” traitors keep free debit cards to every one of the 60 million illegal al1en Vat1can “C” 1NVADERS that comes to the USA. It is time the USA citizens recognize that the Vat1can oppressors has destroyed every nation it kisses.
    Vote for ANY “C” and you vote against Trump the AMERICAN patriot and someone who will keep the borders open forever.
    This is treason. They cannot faithfully perform duties for the USA.
    Vat1can “C” traitors are joined across both parties and because Rs and Ds fight, they are more powerful than either R or D..
    Vote for ANY “C” and you vote to destroy the USA.

  23. Bernie,
    You can start the Ban on Assault Weapons.
    Just listen to Senator “Hirohito” Hirono from Hawaii and “SHUT UP”. The assaults will automatically mitigate and the world will be more peaceful.

  24. HEY BERNIE – WHEN YOU *VIOLENT RAGING RAD-LIB DEMS* QUIT “ASSAULTING” THE REST OF AMERICA & ALL YOUR VIOLENT *DOMESTIC TERRORIST* ORGS. QUIT “ASSAULTING” AMERICA TOO > LET US KNOW!
    THEN WE WILL TALK ABOUT GIVING UP OUR *ANTI-ASSAULT* GUNS TO ‘PROTECT’ THE “REAL AMERICA” FROM YOUR *SUBVERSIVE TREASONOUS SEDITION* > *OVERTHROW* AMERICA AGENDAS!

    ONLY GOD CAN “DELIVER” ALL OF YOU *ENSLAVED* TO THE NOW !!!

  25. This guy is so tiring. It’s time to ban Bernie. He will never be president. That he is a senator is testimony to the abysmal stupidity of the constituency which voted him in. Let’s just BAN BERNIE and get on with real life!

  26. How can any local, state, or federal government legislate away a constitutional right.

    The fact of the mater is they can’t. The constitution gives full authority of all citizens protected rights. Then you have to ask yourself the question: How can Cities, towns, governments (congress), within the United States, impose restrictions on the firearms people own? They can’t. They have no constitutional authority to do so. The problem is that we the people have been indoctrinated with false hoods about what they can do and what they can’t do.

    We must all read the Constitution and the founding documents and educate ourselves to truth and VOTE these so called do gooders out of office. A constitutional based republic, not a democracy, will endure forever.

    White people are being miss labeled as Supremacist. The Democrats are the real multicultural Supremacist. A Supremacist by definition is a person who believes in or advocates the supremacy of a particular group, especially a radical group. Does this in fact sound like the Democrats especially the congressional Democrats and the Democrats running for Presidency. Sounds like a coup by the democratic party to take over, FREE AMERICA, The United States of America and turn us into a Communist Socialist Country. I rest my case!

  27. hay bernie if your going to ban assault weapons , how about banning the people committing most of the gun violence from owning guns , blacks and latino’s

  28. Let us start the assault weapon ban by sealing the lips of Bernie.
    One of the biggest assault weapon – Bernie’s lips – spewing out hate and divisiveness with constant insult of the President and those that do not concur with the Socialist scam Bernie is propagating.

    BAN BERNIE’S LIPS.
