I have said the real reason the GOP is staunchly behind the right to have AR 15 type assault rifles is that they expect and intend to fight urban warfare here over getting and having political power. This came from one of Trump’s inner circle of supporters, Matt Gaetz, and is really from the horse’s mouth. Gaetz is talking urban war here. He’s not talking about shooting racoons, prairie dogs, feral hogs, and other varmints – he’s talking about shooting people. I said earlier, the fight to keep AR 15 assault rifles is all about the use we saw Kyle Rittenhouse use his AR 15 for – urban warfare, to shoot people.
Matt Gaetz: ‘Young adults’ need AR-15 rights or they will be ‘vulnerable’ during ‘midterm violence’
