Once again, anti gun politicians are showing they simply have no idea how firearms and the real world works.
In a recent statement, Rep. Jackie Speier (pictured, majestically in front of a nice, fake ocean backdrop), says she will pursue legislation that will make it illegal to sell or buy any gun that can be fired by a 5 year old child.
Uh, what? So I guess that would include any gun capable of firing in single action, 1911 style pistols, Glocks, etc. It’s unsure if she thinks a thumb safety would prevent a child from firing a gun.
You would think the Congresswoman would be OK with double action only guns with long trigger pulls, but no. The event that sparked this idea was a 5 year old girl accidentally killing herself with a .38 caliber revolver. So apparently no current gun would meet Speier’s definition of child proof. Sounds like roundabout gun banning to me.
