Losech said anti-gun advocates are starting to show their true colors and accused them of trying to institute a massive gun grab.
“For the first time we’re finally starting to see anti-gun advocates be honest about where they are on this issue. Whenever they sit here and they talk about the AR-15, we know that that’s a stand in for all semi-automatic firearms,” she said.
“We saw all the repeal the Second Amendment signs. We see this over and over. And we’re always told well we don’t want to take your guns, but yet that’s what you’re writing. You’re writing editorials in nationally distributed publications talking about the repealing the Second Amendment.”
