Buchanan warns of ‘revolution’ if government attempts to ban and confiscate firearms
On this weekend’s broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” conservative commentator Pat Buchanan, author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” predicted that a revolution will result if President Barack Obama tries to ban and confiscate firearms.
“There are three million ArmaLite rifles — those Bushmaster types out there right now, and people are buying them like hotcakes,” Buchanan said. “Every gun show, the sales are up enormously. Forty-one percent, they were up in December — for last December, which was a record year. … The push is going to come on three things — grandfather in the assault weapons that are here now; to try to outlaw assault weapons, outlaw magazines that carry more than 11 or 12 bullets; and also background checks at gun shows.”
