“Weapons of War” Meme Taken Apart
by Harold Hutchison
Supporters of bans on certain firearms are pushing a big lie by targeting “weapons of war,” NRA President James Porter II warns America.
In an op-ed for DailyCaller.com, the NRA President highlights how the gun-grabbers’ rhetoric encompasses far more than so-called “assault weapons” that have been targeted in recent debates. Among firearms that could be targeted under that standard are the M1 Garand, M1903 Springfield, Remington Model 700, Winchester Model 12, and the M1911.
“Most firearms owned by Americans today are directly or indirectly related to ‘weapons of war,’ subject someday, on that basis, to the ban lists of the likes of Bloomberg, Feinstein and Obama,” Porter wrote.
