Former Obama Advisor Pushes Gun Control

Oct 12, 2017

Dan Pfeiffer, a former advisor to President Obama, called for an Australian-style gun confiscation program. Pfeiffer called on Democrats to stop “insincere pandering” to gun owners. "We are nibbling around the edges instead of proposing bold, meaningful solutions.” Pfeiffer proposed a gun registry, “smart-gun technology,” and a buy back program. "Democratic politicians have been brainwashed by political hacks like me to begin all of their statements about guns by declaring support for the Second Amendment and a deep affinity for the cultures of hunters and sportsmen.” Pfeiffer did not call on Democrats to repeal the Second Amendment. But rather argue that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual’s right to own a gun. "The Second Amendment is in many ways an anachronism, framed before the age of drones and cruise missiles, when a well-armed civilian militia have actually been capable of turning back a foreign invasion. Times change. This is not Red Dawn. You are not Patrick Swayze. Chill out." He concluded saying that Democrats have failed because they have not made “robust, courageous, and honest arguments to the country.”
