Rush Gun Grab
Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday that President Barack Obama and Democrats are “planning a gun grab” in wake of the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 kids and six others dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
“What could a bunch of liberal Democrats worried about guns, talking about using executive orders…? What could it possibly be about? A gun grab,” the conservative commentator said on his radio program, according to a show transcript. “So make no mistake: They are planning a gun grab.”
Limbaugh was discussing Vice President Joe Biden’s public remarks from Wednesday when Biden said that “executive action” can be taken with regard to gun control.
Limbaugh said it’s further proof that liberals want a gun grab, which he said the media has endorsed.
“Biden’s not hiding it. It’s all over the media. And, by the way, the media’s all for it. There are many lessons people can learn about the left. One of the key lessons is they never give anything up. Once they begin a quest, they don’t stop until they’ve got it,” Limbaugh said.
Biden has been meeting with various advocacy groups throughout recent days in order to compile a list of possible solutions to gun violence to give to the president later this month.
