Democrats have long held the view that good guys with guns are not the answer to stopping bad guys with guns. Most Democrats adhere to the philosophy that fewer guns owned by private citizens will reduce violence.
Well, one gun rights group is calling on the Democratic Party to put their money where their mouth is and asking the party to disarm all guards at their party convention later this year.
According to a press release from the CCRKBA:
“Democrats have become known as the party of gun control,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Virtually all recent gun control proposals at the federal and state levels have been launched and championed by Democrats. It’s time for the party to ‘put up or shut up’ about guns. The best way to do that is to forsake armed security during the convention.”
“If a political party believes that guns do not make us safer,” Gottlieb observed, “they should set an example by rejecting any and all forms of armed security at their national convention. A party that does not believe in the right of individual citizens to keep and bear arms should not benefit from the safety provided by others who bear arms.
