IT BEGINS: RINO Toys With ‘God-Darn AR-15’ Ban

On the Second Amendment, Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich appears to be evolving in real time. Worse, he may support a ban on “assault weapons,” echoing his comments about limiting the “God-darn AR-15” rifle.

“Would you feel as though your Second Amendment rights would be eroded because you couldn’t buy a God-darn AR-15?” Kasich said to CNN’s Dana Bash, responding to a friend and gun collector. “These are the things that have to be looked at. And action has to happen before – and, look, you’re never going to fix all of this, but commonsense gun laws make sense.”

Kasich also altered his “Second Amendment” page on his website. The old version hailed the governor as “a strong supporter of the right to bear arms” who had “signed every pro-2nd amendment bill that has crossed his desk to defend this basic, constitutional right.”

The new version admits that “Kasich supports the Second Amendment,” but adds, “As a pragmatic conservative Governor Kasich also recognizes the need for common-sense solutions to our nation’s problems.” His new page emphasizes “a dramatic increase in school shootings and mass killings — many with the use of semi-automatic weapons,” and calls for “appropriate action” such as “limiting the ability to sell weapons that have often been used in mass killings.”
