The Boston Globe Wants To Take All Of Your Weapons Away
Article from The Liberty Conservative by Clifford Cunningham.
In response to the shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas last week, an opinion piece in The Boston Globe has called for the mass confiscation of millions of legally purchased firearms, arguing it is “far and away the most effective approach” to stop mass shootings.
In a piece aptly titled “Hand over your weapons,” the Globe’s David Scharfenberg criticized congressional Democrats for their gun control proposals–namely universal background checks and a so-called assault weapons ban–declaring the proposals as “not just difficult to enact in the current political climate; their practical effects would also be quite limited.”
“In other words, the proposals aren’t just difficult to enact in the current political climate; their practical effects would also be quite limited,” he continued. “On occasion, though, leading Democrats will make oblique reference to a more sweeping policy change: seizing a huge number of weapons from law-abiding citizens.”
Scharfenberg noted comments made by Hillary Clinton at a campaign event in New Hampshire back in 2015 where she praised a forced gun buyback (ie. confiscation) program enacted in Australia following a mass shooting in Port Arthur, Tasmania that left 35 people dead. Former President Barack Obama made similar comments praising the program earlier that year.
