Democrat Says People Don’t Hunt with ‘Assault Weapon with Multiple Ammunition’

via NEWS CENTER Maine

Rep. Chellie Pingree of Maine commented on the recent shooting in Lewiston, stating that while Maine has a strong gun tradition, the use of assault rifles in hunting is unnecessary.

Pingree stated, “If you’re going hunting for a deer, you’re not taking a military-style assault weapon with multiple ammunition with it.”

Critics quickly responded on social media that purpose of the Second Amendment isn’t to allow Americans to hunt. Guns are used to fight against tyranny, which includes defending life and liberty against an oppressive government.

Appearing on MSNBC, Pingree stated, “[T]here’s been a long tradition in Maine of Republicans and Democrats saying — as you often hear — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and other people in northern New England say — we’ve got a strong gun tradition in our state, we just can’t go against that.”

“And you never know in political life when the tipping point will hit, but it just felt today like when this was happening in our state and people were looking around, saying, oh my goodness, what are we going to do about this?” she continued.

“Well, the one thing that was out of place in that picture was an assault rifle, a weapon that was designed just to kill people. And, as I said, we have a lot of guns in our state.”

“But if you’re going hunting for a deer, you’re not taking a military-style assault weapon with multiple ammunition with it.”

She emphasized that assault rifles are designed for killing people, not for hunting deer, and that they were out of place in the shooting incident.
