O'Rourke is already there. He not only calls for confiscation of ARs and AKs but also firearms using “high-velocity, high impact” ammunition and any other firearm that's used on “the battlefield.”
Those afterthoughts should take care of handguns of the calibers 9mm, .38 and .45 calibers.
And rifles firing .30 caliber - not to mention those firing .50 caliber - they are gone too if Democrats get their way.
And don't forget, just in the past couple of weeks word has leaked out that a British soldier used a shotgun to kill four terrorists. Bye bye shotguns.
You'll still have .22 handguns to defend the second amendment. But only until someone remembers that .22 handguns are used by deadly assassins like Sirhan Sirhan.
If you ban semi-automatics that leaves revolvers, bolt and lever action rifles and shotguns.
Yet, in 1934 there was an attempt to ban handguns as rifles were considered best for household protection.
When California wrote it’s first AW rifle ban bill, they also included many lever action rifles in the ban. This was later shelved and the lever action rifles removed from the shelved bill.
Then they released Pat Purdy from a mental institution, allowed him to pass California’s waiting periods, then he shot up the Stockton school, killing himself.
The shelved bill was pulled out and passed before any opposition could be mounted against the bill.
