Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline evades questions on gun parts as he wants them banned

Friday morning “Fox and Friends” host Tucker Carlson interviewed Congressman David Cicilline (D-R.I.), an advocate for stricter gun laws, discussing the Democrats’ recent sit-in and then having trouble answering questions about his proposed ban, and more specifically, the functions of the barrel shroud.

Cicilline spouts off the components of a weapon that made it an “assault weapon,” but seemingly cannot discuss the function of what he wants to ban. Carlson pressed the Democrat what a barrel shroud does, but he keeps evading the question.

In fact, when Carlson points out that none of the anti-Second Amendment bills proposed by the Democrats would have prevented the massacre in Orlando,  Cicilline responded that it doesn’t matter.

Check out the full exchange below.

Cicilline took to Twitter:

Barrel shrouds, detachable stocks, forward grips, pistol grips, grenade launchers, and detachable magazines are military-style features. – @davidcicilline

Additonal tweets: They make these weapons deadlier. That’s why 7 of the last 8 high-profile mass shooters used an assault weapon or a high-capacity magazine.

As mass shootings grow more common, it’s critical we get these weapons, which were designed for the battlefield, out of our communities.

When an assault weapon is used in a mass shooting, the number of people killed goes up 63%. Facts don’t lie.

Assault weapons were used in Orlando, in San Bernardino, at Umpqua Community College, in Aurora, and at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Gun violence claims the lives of 33,000 Americans each year, but Congress has done nothing about this ongoing epidemic.

We need to pass No Fly, No Buy and universal background checks when we return next week. Let’s get this done.

No single bill will solve this problem overnight, but a comprehensive approach will dramatically reduce the number of gun deaths each year.

    Marxists and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States into becoming an unarmed population. Unarmed populations have been treated as slaves and chattel since the dawn of history.

    The Second Amendment foes lying about gun control – Firearms are our constitutionally mandated safeguard against tyranny by a powerful federal government.

    Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control.

    No matter what any president, senator, congressman, or hard-left mainstream media hookers tell you concerning the statist utopian fantasy of safety and security through further gun control: They are lying. If their lips are moving, they are lying about gun control. These despots truly hate America..

    These tyrants hate freedom, liberty, personal responsibility, and private property. But the reality is that our citizens’ ownership of firearms serves as a concrete deterrent against despotism. They are demanding to hold the absolute power of life and death over you and your family. Ask the six million Jews, and the other five million murdered martyrs who perished in the Nazi death camps, how being disarmed by a powerful tyranny ended any chances of fighting back. Ask the murdered martyrs of the Warsaw Ghetto about gun control.

    Their single agenda is to control you after you are disarmed. When the people who want to control you hold the absolute power of life and death over your family, you have been enslaved.

    Will we stand our ground, maintaining our constitutionally guaranteed Second Amendment rights, fighting those who would enslave us?

    This is how IGNORANT these OATH BREAKING, TYRANT WANNABE USURPING ARSEWIPES truly are! They know nothing about what they speak.

    Criminals and terrorist do NOT get BG checks!

    What DUE PROCESS is provided BEFORE being placed on some secret government list/s.

    Weapons of War (aka as Weapons of Military Utility) are the EXACT weapons the founders intended for the people to keep and bear and, therefore, protected with the 2nd Amendment.

    So this Repressive wants to enshrine his ignorance in Law. How does he expect to profit from violating his sworn “Oath of Office”? How much money did he raise by taking part in their childish temper tantrum? What a hypocrite.
