House Dems Set Sights on Gun Control
Article from The Daily Caller by Nick Givas.
Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina said Democrats are trying to erode the Second Amendment by limiting lawmakers’ ability to carry a firearm for protection on Capitol Hill.
“We have to look at the words of Hawaiian [Democratic] Sen. [Mazie] Hirono this week that Democrats know and are smarter than their voters,” Duncan said on “Fox & Friends” Friday.
“They are trying to create a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. Since 1967 members of Congress have been able to carry firearms onto this Capitol Hill campus,” he continued.
“There hasn’t been a problem in 50 years as you pointed out. And so the curtain has been pulled back on the progressive agenda,” he said. “You look at who is pushing this — [California Democratic Rep.] Jared Huffman. But then you have the words of [Democratic Rep.] Eric Swalwell from California who debated Tucker Carlson on your show about his desire to have the government confiscate guns and do a government buy back program. It’s all about gun control for the [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi Democrats in this Congress.”
