Left-Wing Georgia Gov. Candidate Stacey Abrams Admits She Wants to Take Georgia’s Guns Away

Hey, Georgia, do you all want to lose your Second Amendment rights? Well, if you vote Stacey Abrams into office, she is promising that this is exactly what she wants to do to you.

The left-wing Abrams — who was caught burning a flag in the 1990s — recently admitted that her plan would include forcing Georgians to turn in their guns.

Abrams noted that other parts of her plan could include “buybacks” (which are mostly ineffective) and “grandfathering in” older gun owners.

However, she also noted that this “grandfathering” would prevent owners from ever being able to sell their guns or transfer them to anyone else.

So… if that owner dies… then what? Confiscation? Destruction?

According to Breitbart News:

Abrams began by telling host Jake Tapper that “AR-15s are not necessary on our streets.” She then called for more gun control “semiautomatic weapons” in general. She did not mention that semiautomatic handguns like Glock, Kimber, Ruger, Walther, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield Armory, etc., are the go-to choice for concealed carry and self-defense. Rather, she simply called for new controls for firearms with semiautomatic actions.

Tapper reminded the viewing audience that Abrams co-sponsored Georgia HB 731 on January 2016. He pointed out that Abrams’ co-sponsors admitted the bill would “require gun owners of these particular models to turn their guns in.” (Breitbart News reported that HB 731 designated certain commonly owned semiautomatic firearms as contraband and required the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to seize them from their owners.)

Abrams did not try to hide her support for HB 731, rather, she said that was simply the beginning of “a conversation.” She then made clear that as her control push continues it is still unknown if the outcome will be “grandfather in, about whether or not people would turn their guns in, whether there would be buybacks.”

This is far from the first time Abrams supported gun banning and confiscation.

In October, for instance, Abrams claimed that she wanted to ban all AR-15 rifles calling them “weapons of mass destruction.”
