Heritage Foundation’s Amy Swearer handles gun grabbing Democrats like a boss
Swearer focused on the practicality of a ban, pointing out mainly “cosmetic” differences between weapons such as the AR-15 and standard semi-automatic hunting rifles.
Swearer explained that there is no difference in the mechanics or function of an “assault weapon” or a semi-automatic hunting rifle. Swearer also testified against the idea that law-abiding citizens have no need for weapons like AR-15s, recalling how her mother, a gun novice, had difficulty accurately firing a handgun at a shooting range, but was much more effective when she used an AR-15.
“As I read the Second Amendment, it doesn’t say the right to bear arms shall not be infringed unless the gun has scary features,” Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said.
