Attorney Colion Noir called out Vice President Kamala Harris for praising Australia’s mandatory gun confiscation that was carried out in the 1990s. The Second Amendment advocate told “The Ingraham Angle” that the situation in Maine this week underscored why legal gun ownership is important for Americans. “Nobody needs a firearm, until you do,” Noir argued, after a suspected mass shooter eluded police after attacking a bar and bowling alley.
COLION NOIR: The irony is Maine is considered the second-safest state in the country. And they also are considered one of the most pro-gun states in the country. The thing is, though, when you live in a very safe environment, sometimes we get lulled into complacency. And when we think that we’re safe because we feel safe, which doesn’t necessarily mean you are safe. And then when you start to realize that, you know, maybe I should have a firearm, it usually happens when it’s too late. And so that’s why you have individuals now saying, well, now there’s a manhunt going on and the police don’t know where he is. And now you’re at home, you don’t have a firearm, and you have no means to protect yourself, and neither can the police because they’re too busy looking for the guy. So that’s the one thing that I’ve always tried to hammer onto people with respect to the Second Amendment. It’s there to give you the ability to protect you and your family and I just wish that people would understand that. But because of the semantics and the games that the left likes to play with respect to the Second Amendment, they fall into this belief system that nobody needs a firearm. Until you do and then at that point, it’s too late.
Vice President Kamala Harris lauded gun control laws in Australia, where citizens do not have a legal right to gun ownership and where a mass gun confiscation took place in the 1990s, during a speech Thursday.
Harris said Australian gun laws proved that mass shootings do not have to be a regular occurrence, during her remarks delivered at a State Department luncheon earlier in the day with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. Her comments came after a shooting in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday left at least 18 dead and more than a dozen injured.
“As we gather details, we must continue to speak truth about the moment we are in,” Harris said. “In our country today, the leading cause of death of American children is gun violence. Gun violence has terrorized and traumatized so many of our communities in the United States.”
Noir and host Laura Ingraham agreed that gun confiscation is the “dream” for the left and Democratic politicians often describe it by using euphemisms like “buybacks.”
