RFK Jr’s 2nd Amendment Flip-Flop

(TheRedAlertNews.com) – 2024 Democratic presidential nomination hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has sent confusing messages on where he stands on 2nd Amendment rights as he has now declared he would favor an “assault weapons” ban.

In recent months, RFK Jr. stated his support for Americans’ constitutional gun rights.

However, during a NewsNation town hall on Wednesday, he gave a different answer when asked whether he would favor prohibiting what leftists call “assault weapons” if he were president.

The host asked the environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine activist if he would sign an “assault weapons” ban law given the strong support such a measure enjoyed among Democrat voters.

In a marked departure from his previous statements, Kennedy answered affirmatively.

“If we can get a consensus on it if Republicans and Democrats agreed and it passed Congress, I would sign it,” he declared.

His declaration came only minutes after in the same town hall, he had just suggested that firearms and Americans’ gun rights are not a problem, Breitbart News reports.

The nephew of President John Kennedy pointed out that Americans had always possessed guns – they even used to bring them to schools for gun clubs without any mass shootings occurring.

RFK Jr.’s flip-flopping on weapon bans comes after he recently told a New Hampshire town hall he was against the leftist demands for taking away guns.

“Anyone who tells you that we can end the violence to our children that’s going on now by removing people’s guns, in the margin that has been left to us by this very expansive Supreme Court decision [Bruen], is not being truthful with you,” the Democrat presidential hopeful declared.

He had said the same on June 5 in his live conversation with Elon Musk.

“My position on gun control is that I’m not going to take away anybody’s guns. I’m a constitutional maximalist and the issue has been settled by the Supreme Court,” Kennedy stated at the time.

Yet, during the NewsNation town hall, RFK Jr. declared that, as president, he would sign a law banning “assault weapons” – he only made such a step conditional on a bipartisan agreement to that end between congressional Democrats and Republicans.
