Whenever someone claims “no one is talking about taking your guns,” point them to this CBS Mornings segment from Thursday. Leaning on Holly Williams from across the pond in London, the network pushed for the British and Australian-style of sweeping gun bans and confiscations. And not only were they eager to do away with AR-style weapons but also “all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns” and “private ownership of all handguns.”
“Many people here in the U.K. feel a special bond with the U.S.,” Williams noted before lamenting, “they`re mystified, they`re confused, because here and in other countries where there`s been a massacre, the government brings in tougher gun control laws and they cannot comprehend why that doesn`t happen in the U.S.”
Williams boasted about how a school shooting in the U.K. in 1996 led to the crackdown on law-abiding gun owners. “It was the deadliest mass shooting in British history. And after a grassroots campaign, the government here banned the private ownership of all handguns,” she recounted.
