2020 Democratic Candidate: We Need to Stop Selling AR-15 Ammo

Marianne Williamson, a candidate vying for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, spoke out about how to “combat the epidemic of gun violence in the U.S.” in a recent video published by uPolitics.

Williamson, an author and an activist by trade, proposed the following: enacting universal background checks, closing “the loopholes,” outlawing the AR-15, banning bump stocks (which have already been banned), putting serial numbers on bullets and…

“When we outlaw them [ARs] there will be so many millions on the street, so we need to stop selling the ammunition. We need to stop producing the ammunition for the AR-15,” she explained.

Wonder if she means just standard .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO or all the various AR calibers: .300 AAC Blackout / .300 Whisper, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 Remington SPC, 5.7x28mm, 7.62x39mm, .458 SOCOM, .50 Beowulf, etc.

But let us not forget, AR-pattern firearms also come in common pistol calibers: 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and are also chambered for the ubiquitous .22LR.

Should we stop production on all of those as well?

On a positive note, and unlike some of her competitors, Williamson did seem reluctant to roll out a national registry of gun owners.

“Some people believe we should register guns. But I also understand how people of color, particularly, ‘Go, no, we don’t want that done,’ because they understandably do not wish to see a database somewhere where law enforcement can see who has the guns,” she said.

Depending on which survey you consult, Williamson is polling between 0 – 1 percent.

    Have any of these idiots seen what happens in countries without guns? In Syria I saw a guy trying to fight with a BB gun. Please people don’t let brain dead activists or downright commies put us in that kind of world. We stay safe primarily because no other dictator will risk taking on “We the People” with guns. Disarm America and America becomes just another failed historical blunder fostered by minority activists that do not have a clue.

  • Don August 18, 2019, 8:18 pm

    Ummm Excuse me???
    AR What??? currently the AR platform is accepting Most all Calibers today. Swap out the Upper for a Caliber of Choice and Maybe a Magwell adapter and you still have an AR.
    So little Democrat Girl what are you talking about now with an AR????
    .223?
    5.56×45?
    9mm Luger???
    30-06??? .308??
    What Caliber was that again???
    Oh wait i know I know it’s that one that goes BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go back to School and LEARN about Socialism and Communism again. I think you skipped class that year……

  • Mikey Weinstein August 5, 2019, 12:49 am

    Honestly can’t understand why this woman, this candidate for Democratic Party nomination, is only polling 0-1% support. She is obviously brilliant.

    She’s about to cause gun shops to run out of AR-15 ammo with her big liberal mouth.

  • Ileaformosa August 3, 2019, 9:49 pm

    Who gets to scribe the serial number on every caliber bullet of every AR variant? How many bullets are out there, and how high would an unique number need to be for the next trillion that go into production? Who gets an electron microscope granted to them from the central government with which to read the serial numbers? Who builds and monitors the data base on registering every cartridge sold, its buyer, and any “transfers” that occur after the retail purchase? What is the penalty for transferring a cartridge intended for a Glock 17 to someone with a 9mm AR? Who thinks politicians are in the business of solving problems?

  • vitae August 3, 2019, 9:34 pm

    This is another brightly-lit illustration of the real problem in American politics: Stupid people (who would think this is a viable solution) are allowed to vote.
    Bring back the poll tax.

    It may happen some day. Being a reloader, I have put away a ton of prepped 5.56 cases-very cheap on GB. Like $70/k. Already trimmed, sized, etc. ready to load. A buddy and I split a huge pack of 62 gr tips (green tips). A jug of surplus powder, and a sleeve of primers, and this winter I will fire up the 650 to crank them out. Box them up and stick them away in sealed cans. Much cheaper than buying it.

    I am not old enough to know how prohibition went, but I have read and watched enough to get it. Making anything illegal just makes criminals out of society. The gun violence is a mental issue, banning ammo is like treating a migraine with aspirin. Just does not work

    But I also understand how people of color, particularly, ‘Go, no, we don’t want that done,’ because they understandably do not wish to see a database somewhere where law enforcement can see who has the guns,” she said. How come Cory, Camila, Green, Biden, Elijah, and the rest do not call her “racist”. God help Trump if he said that, it would be impeachment 10,000%

    • ExGob August 2, 2019, 5:08 pm

      Well said, dd, I saw and heard that right off. You’re right, POTUS would never get away with that remark. Does she think that white female democrats would never be racist so she’s safe with her remarks?

  • Geoff August 2, 2019, 11:21 am

    “Stop selling AR15 Ammo”
    AR15s are chambered from .22LR, 5.56/.223, .224 Valkyrie, 300BLK, 6.5, 6.8, 7.62, 450 Bushmaster, 458 SOCOM, 50AE and even 50BMG.
    Oh, heck. Just look at the list here:
    en dot wikipedia dot org/wiki/List_of_AR_platform_calibers#Center_fire_calibers
    That’s a lot of ammo to stop selling used by other rifles.

  • ExGob August 2, 2019, 11:02 am

    Damn! Talk about ignorance! This is a prime example of just how uneducated some potential politicians are. We might as well put a ban on drinking water! Has this gal never heard of loading your own? Besides, there’s already enough ammo available to last us for hundreds of years, even with more and more of us being born every day. This old gal badly needs to get her head out of her ass and find herself a pro-gun friend to educate her.

    Let’s face it folks: Guns and ammo are here to stay, and so is the technology that goes them. Both were invented by humans and there are way yonder more intelligent humans today than there were back then. Guns and ammo might someday be banned by law, but their availability will be ever present, just like our natural instinct to protect ourselves, our loved ones and other innocents.

    BE PREPARED!

    Okay. I never buy “AR-15” ammo anyway. I just buy .223 cal or 5.56 x 45 ammo, which is used by a variety of firearms.

    So dumb.

      No, she is NOT as dumb as a bag of hammers, hammers aren’t as dumb as she is.

  • srsquidizen August 2, 2019, 10:20 am

    She’s just typical of the gun-ignorance displayed by liars who claim they can fix gun violence without putting criminals where they belong. Put a grossly unfair burden on millions of law-abiding gun owners for owning a rifle that is used in a tiny percentage of violent crimes. And of course it would be totally unenforceable against criminals anyway, since bootleg ammo is much easier to produce than bootleg guns and gazillions of those are smuggled across our all-but-wide-open borders, all of them sold to criminals. Yeah, real smart idea lady.

  • MB August 2, 2019, 9:29 am

    Crack is a very dangerous drug, she should stop using it. On second thought, go right ahead and keep using Marianne , you are going to be president, in fact you are already.

    The problem we have is a mental health problem. All the forms that need to be filled out to go to school/college. They should enact a physic evaluation of students to identify and mental issues and recommend treatment. People with mental illness seem to be ignored or slipping through the cracks.
    Secondly reduce the gun free zones in schools and churches. All this does is create soft targets that these bad actor look for.

  • Alan Robinson August 2, 2019, 9:00 am

    We need ‘gang’ control, not gun control.

    • Irish-7 August 2, 2019, 11:22 am

      I concur. With the perpetual support of their lap-dog media, Liberal politicians shift the blame for gun violence from those responsible, drug gangs, to law abiding firearm owners. The statistics show that Modern Sporting Rifles are used in a very small portion of firearm related deaths. However, mass shootings get the most media attention.

      Dude, you nailed it. If her “pie-in-the-sky”, unicorn and rainbows view of the world had been all that effective at curtailing crime and abuse, WHY is it rising so fast in liberal areas where her prospective constituency reside?

      In 1996 and 2000, I supported John Hagelun, the Nobel Prize winning particle physicist who believed that the thoughts we think actually get manifested. If the population is spiritually undisciplined, those weaker minds just listen to the voice of the fear-driven collective and the ignorant bastards just make it all happen.

      While I believe Hagelun was on the right track, my guess is that ARs and AKs would just be collecting dust in the back of a closet, and no longer popular or needed.

      Williamson, on the other hand, is completely clueless about what the hell is happening in politics and the evil driving it, along with the manifestation of the cancerous blight of elitists at Bilderberg and the CFR.

  • Dr Motown August 2, 2019, 7:27 am

    So, only the 2A rights of \”people of color\” matter? Will this mean that Oprah\’s bodyguards won\’t be able to purchase ammunition either?

  • Tracy Kvies August 2, 2019, 6:55 am

    If people were sincere about tackling the problem of firearms used against one another, they need to make themselves aware of the data that is readily available. Each year, the FBI compiles a comprehensive report of all crimes committed in the U.S. including what firearms were used in the commission of homicides (a person killing another; justifiable in some cases). In 2017, the FBI reported a total of 10,982 homicides using a firearm in the U.S. Of these, 7,032 handguns were used, while 403 rifles of all varieties (some of which are labeled AR’s) were used. Knives and blunt instruments account for 1591 and 407 respectively. Those maintaining this campaign against AR’s have nothing to do with reducing deaths, as the statistics point out. They are either in pursuit of a personal agenda or are like Quixote and Sancho fighting windmills.

    • JoeUSooner August 2, 2019, 1:27 pm

      Hmmm… those numbers make no sense. (Using round numbers) If roughly 11,000 firearms-related homicides occurred, and only about 7,400 were committed with pistols and rifles… were the other 3,600 homicides committed with shotguns and derringers?

      Or did you mean 11,000 total homicides? With 7,400 committed with firearms and 2,000 committed with knives and blunt instruments… what accounts for the other 1,600 murders?

      This is confusing…

    Just when you thought you saw the most stupid thing a liberal could say… they take it as a challenge and say something even more stupid. The serial number would be so long it would not fit on the bullet. And the barrel already puts an identify mark on each bullet fired! And only register guns from whites. Do Asians need to register? Then will you stop selling gun powder, firing caps , castings, and projectiles? How about all the illegal guns coming to America? How about illegals can they have a gun and not register it?

      According to the lawmakers of california as well as the ninth circuir court, firing pin that embed the gun’s serial no. on the case AND the bullet does exist. This is mandated on all semi-auto handguns sold in Ca. as of 2019 unless that model has been previously grandfathered.

      So yeah, they do exist
