White House: ‘Unacceptable’ For American Gun Owners To Keep Their AR-15s — Won’t Rule Out Confiscation!
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the quiet part out loud during a press briefing, suggesting it was “unacceptable” not to ban 25 million AR-15 rifles kept in American households.
A reporter asked on Wednesday how the Biden administration can reconcile with the fact that a ban on AR-15 rifles is impossible given there are 25 million in circulation.
“There are 25 million [AR-15s] out there in circulation in the homes of millions of Americans, and therefore you can’t ban them. What’s the president’s response to that?” he asked.
Jean-Pierre snapped back: “That’s unacceptable. That’s our response to that.”
