When Steve Bullock ran for the Democratic nomination for President he made it clear that he would support a ban on some semi-automatic firearms. Here’s what he said, according to an AP article from August, 2018:
“Gov. Steve Bullock’s comments came in response Sunday to a question posed to him on CNN’s State of The Union.
Host Jake Tapper asked Bullock if he would support an “assault weapons ban, a ban on some forms of semiautomatic weapons.”
Bullock answered, ‘You know, I would, Jake.’ “
During Saturday’s debate, Senator Daines said the following:
“I protected the Second Amendment and have been endorsed by the NRA with an A-plus plus rating. He wants more gun control, and the NRA just gave him an ‘F’ rating.”
Bullock’s comment Saturday night on the Second Amendment was vague and non-committal, saying something about how he supports the Second Amendment because he’s a ‘hunter’. That fits with what Bullock’s spokeswoman said in the same AP article referenced above:
“Bullock spokeswoman Ronja Abel says Bullock is a gun owner and a hunter who doesn’t see the need for certain kinds of firearms for hunting or personal safety.”
So I have to ask – does Governor Bullock really believe that our Second Amendment was written with deer hunters in mind?
It’s possible he’ll ‘evolve’ on the issue before November 3, Election Day. After all, it didn’t take him long to ‘evolve’ from repeatedly saying ‘I’m not going to run for Senate’, to eagerly jumping in with both feet after visits and talks with Chuck Shumer and former President Obama.
That brings me to our poll question today:
