OPINION: Bill Barr Needs To Answer For His Role In Ruby Ridge

The Second Amendment community has tried very hard to get members of the Judiciary Committee to persuade attorney general nominee William Barr to renounce his long-standing support for gun control. Opposing his nomination is not a position we relish. But if members of the Senate choose to ignore his record on guns, they should not ignore his role in the Ruby Ridge scandal.

Consider these facts.

Barr was in charge of the Justice Department during Ruby Ridge, and he knew what was going on.

Barr stated, under oath, that his chief gun priority would be the Ruby Ridge-like gun confiscation orders (sugar-coated as “red flag laws”).

Just use their own tactics against them, do research and dig into their lives like they do to any one of us... Then use what you find against him... Since he is a politician, he has skeletons in his closet... More than likely tho he is a pedophile since most politicians are!!!! You will see, if any of these corrupt people go to jail...

Doesn't the constConstit state "right to bear arms". It doesn't state automatic weapons per see. I believe you have a tight to carry a registered hand gun but a semi automstic is evil. Don't you want to kill a deer instead of spraying it with bullets saving the meat for consumption. Automatic weapons should be left to police ICE CIA, active military not to everyday citizens who are not in danger. If I got this law wrong forgive me but yo mudt agree you don't need to pump that many bullets in such a short time.

100% Correct 7:49
3:19 AR 15 rifles are semi-automatic, as are many hunting rifles, they are not automatic, a lot of handguns are semi-automatic also.
For you 4:49, who will protect you at 3 in the morning when some drug using thug breaks into your house and robs or kills you & your family ? When the popo finally gets to the scene who will they defend & protect ? No one .... it will be over, damage done, and irreversible. Think about it.
