Next months special election in Pennsylvanias 18th district, between Republican state Sen. Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb, will be the first congressional election after last weeks school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The irony here is that Lamb, a former prosecutor, doesnt actually want much more gun control, and hes taken some heat from Democrats because of it. At a recent debate, Lamb said he would not support a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15 reportedly used by the Florida shooter. He echoed a statement he made after the Florida shooting, saying that Congress should shore up existing safeguards rather than drafting new laws. (He did say he supported efforts to close the so-called gun show loophole, which allows private sales of guns to be conducted without a background check.) For his part, Saccone also rejected the idea of an assault weapons ban and lamented that the lefts first response is always to disarm law-abiding citizens whenever theres an incident like this.

Do any of the dems running in 2018 say they support any Ar15 bans?
They know it's a no win position.
Rats like, especially to the public during an election, but once elected, you can bet the farm this Rat will commie right down the line, including ban all weapons, if they could.
“... close the so-called gun show loophole ...”
Which means a background check on private sales,
and creating of a national gun registry.
This my district and the little Lamb wants to fool just enough people to get over the finish line. Trump carried our district by over 20 points.
until he gets elected, then all bets are off
The Florida House refused to allow an “AWB” Bill to proceed.
What kind of bizarro world am I in? Republicans pushing gun control, Dems opposing it?
More irony about the author: Tim Murphy is a senior reporter at Mother Jones. Reach him at email@example.com. Tim Murphy is also the name of our disgraced ex-congress critter who was forced to resign because he got caught with his pants down.
Several UAW members in my area switched and voted for Trump.
Try to take away their ARs and the Dems will lose even more of them
And the RAts know it.
I wish EVERY 2018 Dem Candidate would state they will work to ban ARs.
“Which means a background check on private sales,
and creating of a national gun registry.”
It also means gramps can’t give his grand kid his favorite hunting rifle. It means when a loved one dies you have to go pay someone to transfer it. Gun show Loophole was a fancy name they hung on it. How many guns are sold through this “loophole “? How many of those are actually sold at gun shows?
That’s exactly right!! RATs are scum, period!!!
I did some growing up in this section of the state. In Somerset. Somerset and the whole corner of the state has been totally destroyed directly by liberal politics. From coal to the highway that was 6 miles short of connecting before Wolf closed it down.
But they’ll continue to vote Dem.
The democrat is lying.
Got that, Donald?
Of course he is. He's a democRAT. And his lips are moving.
But it's important to observe what kind of lie he tells. Republicans won't win any friends on the left by supporting gun bans (or gun accessory bans). Even the lying democRAT knows its a losing position.
Completely true. Wish the pubbies would figure it out. Later FReeper, 0300 comes early for an old man.
