California Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan is demanding the U.S. Senate “do something” to end gun violence.
In an interview last month with Youtube’s Nuance Bro (see video above), the Democrat who represents the state’s 16th district, explained what action she wants Congress to take on guns.
“Well, there’s a lot of things I could list. I would love to see a ban on semiautomatic weapons, and the ammunition that goes with them but right now we’re working on background checks,” she says with an air of confidence.
Wait, what? Did she really just say ban all semiautos and the ammo that goes with ‘em??? Banning semiauto ammo would mean banning most categories of firearms.
Nuance Bro did what any credible journalist would do in his position and asked for her to clarify her radically inane statement.
“I would like [the U.S.] to mirror California’s gun laws,” she says to sum up her stance.
But you can buy semiautomatic handguns in California, he responds. To which she says, “Well, we’ve banned the bump stock.”
Huh? WTF!!! But wait, it gets better (and by “better,” I mean dumber).
When he politely informs her that the federal government banned bump stocks she scrambles and changes her tune, dropping this beauty of a line in the process, “You can’t get the semiautomatic ammunition here in California.”
I’m almost at a loss for words; her ignorance is astounding! Again, he asks her to explain.
“What semiautomatic ammunition?” says Nuance Bro.
“The large magazines,” she says.
Let’s break this down. Assemblywoman Bauer-Kahan, who is an environmental attorney who taught appellate law at Santa Clara University, does not know the difference between semiautomatic firearms and bump stocks nor the difference between a cartridge and a magazine. Yet, she is actively protesting to strip away the 2A rights of law-abiding citizens nationwide.
For someone who is so passionate about gun control, you would think that she, especially being a law professor and an elected official, would have at least a cursory knowledge of guns, gun parts, and gun regulations, right?
She clearly does not.
GunsAmerica reached out to Bauer-Kahan via Facebook to see if she’d like to talk guns some more. Funny thing though, she never got back to us. Suppose it’s better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you’re a fool than to open your mouth (once again) and remove all doubt.
