Baltimore Mayor Believes NRA Promotes Ownership Of Rocket Launchers
Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout:
Like many other Democrats, Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh has a bizarre understanding of what the National Rifle Association actually does. She seems to think the NRA promotes the ownership of rocket launchers.
The Blaze reports:
Baltimore mayor apparently thinks the NRA supports private ownership of rocket launchers — and she’s fundraising off it
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) apparently believes that the National Rifle Association advocates for the personal use and ownership of rocket launchers, if one of her recent tweets is to be believed.
As a result, social media users mocked Pugh mercilessly over her assertion.
What’s more, however, is that the Pugh campaign has sent out an email using the claim to fundraise.
The Baltimore Police Department’s latest gun buyback program — which is intended to reduce the number of unregistered weapons on the city’s streets — turned up a rocket launcher.
An actual rocket launcher.
Guidelines for the buyback included $25 for high-capacity magazines, $100 for revolvers and bolt-action or pump-action weapons, and $200 for semi-automatic weapons, according to the Baltimore Sun. The city also offered $500 for fully automatic weapons.
The rocket launcher reportedly fetched $500, though it wasn’t fully automatic.
