GUN OWNERS’ CHIEF: 2ND AMENDMENT GOING NOWHERE
After years of gun control advocates insisting they didn’t want to take away anyone’s guns, the March for Our Lives and a string of opinion columns headlined by former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens are making it clear that the movement is aimed at repealing the Second Amendment, and the head of one leading gun rights group welcomes the honesty.
“Obviously the mask is coming off. There is a radical agenda that we are fighting against. The anti-gun left wants to confiscate guns from law-abiding Americans, but they’re not going to succeed,” said Gun Owners of America Executive Director Erich Pratt.
None of this comes as a surprise to Pratt. He says opponents of the Second Amendment have been wanting this for a long time, even pointing to a “60 Minutes” interview with Sen. Dianne Feinstein from decades ago.
“If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. America turn them all in, I would have done it,” Pratt recounted Feinstein as saying.
