Judge From NRA Kavanaugh Says Assault Weapons Are Common, Can't Be Banned

Dianne Feinstein actually gasped at his "too many people own them to ban them" answer.
Views:

The NRA is getting their money's worth with this nominee.

Dianne Feinstein wasn't having Kavanaugh's arguments against an assault weapons ban.

Kavanaugh argues that Supreme Court precedent determines that unless a weapon is "dangerous and unusual" and not in "common use" it cannot be banned.

"Common use," Kavanaugh argued, means "lots of people own one."

Maybe we should consider the "common" results of the uncommon use of them.

Even Kavanaugh admitted that "all weapons are dangerous."

This is a battle between common sense and money, and as long as Republicans are in charge we know what wins.
