Joe Biden has begun naming people he would like on his potential White House team, and there are some real bad apples in the bunch. Remember when Beto O’Rourke told a debate audience, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,”? Shaping O’Rourke’s message at the time was Jennifer O’Malley Dillon.
Later, Joe Biden told an audience that he was going to put O’Rourke in charge of his gun control efforts.
Can you guess who Biden now wants as his deputy chief of staff? Jennifer O’Malley Dillon.
Fox News is reporting today on O’Malley Dillon’s call for “mandatory buybacks” of 15-16 million guns. Watch the video yourself below:
Michael Ruiz reports for Fox News:
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris also said she supports a mandatory buyback of “assault weapons” on the 2020 primary trail, although she estimated her version of such a program would impact only about 2 million weapons.
A spokesman for the Biden-Harris transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Biden’s campaign has called for giving owners of “assault weapons or high-capacity magazines” the option to either sell their weapons to the government or register them with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives under an expansion of the National Firearms Act.
Police groups, Second Amendment advocates and even former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders have criticized the idea of mandatory buybacks – with the latter calling them “unconstitutional.”
Action Line: If you still haven’t done so, I can’t impress upon you how important it is to get your gun and your training now.
