Gary Johnson: Making of Instant Criminals

In an interview with Gary Johnson, libertarian candidate for U.S. President, when asked about his thoughts on “banning assault weapons” his response went something like this (I am paraphrasing):

There are basically two issues with banning assault weapons. First, if the U.S. were to ban “assault weapons” he doubted that even half would abide by any such ruling, instantaneously turning millions of Americans into criminals.

Second, “automatic” weapons have been banned in this country for many years.

Obama: Sandy Hook Shooter Used Fully Automatic Weapon

From the Weekly Standard:

Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues: gun control. (Applause.) I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon — by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.

These are the words of the Campaigner in Chief at a fund raising event in San Fransisco, while North Korea threatens a nuclear attack on us. One or more of three things can be concluded from this statement:

1. The President is ignorant
2. The President is a liar
3. The President knows that the weapon Adam Lanza used was a fully automatic rifle and he has kept that knowledge from the people.
