Parkland demagogue Cameron Kasky falsely claims Second Amendment has no restrictions

On Tuesday, Parkland anti-gun demagogue Cameron Kasky issued a tweet in which he falsely claimed the Second Amend has “no restrictions.”

“The first amendment has restrictions. The second amendment has no restrictions. These weapons are not in the hands of ‘well-regulated’ militias. The changes the people are demanding do not desecrate the second amendment, they just make it a safe addition to our constitution,” he tweeted.

Calling his message “one of the most factually false statements” made by the far-left anti-gun activists so far, Ryan Saavedra countered with just “some” of the regulations that impose restrictions on the Second Amendment:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

National Firearms Act (NFA) – “The importation of certain firearms, including but not limited to, machineguns, silencers, certain weapons made from rifles or shotguns, and destructive devices is also restricted under the National Firearms Act (NFA). 26 U.S.C. § 5844.”

Arms Export Control Act of 1976 (AECA) – “The importation of certain defense articles to include certain firearms, firearms parts, ammunition and certain other military equipment is subject to the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act of 1976 (AECA). 22 U.S.C. § 2778.”

Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) – “The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) generally prohibits the importation of firearms, firearm frames or receivers, firearm barrels and ammunition into the United States. However, the GCA creates several narrow categories of firearms the Attorney General shall authorize for importation.”

These are just three of the laws Saavedra posted, noting that there’s many, many more.

“Kasky’s latest lie is so patently false that it is embarrassing for the anti-gun movement that he supports, as it undermines its legitimacy in the eyes of critics and independent-minded thinkers who are looking for the truth,” he added.

Sadly, we’re now being told by CNN that it’s “bad” to criticize these children when they make false claims like this.

Kasky’s tweet didn’t go over too well:



Fellow Parkland student Kyle Kashuv noted:


One person tried to educate Kasky about the Second Amendment, using a quote from the man who helped write it:


As a result of the lies and demagoguery spread by the Parkland activists and their enablers in the media and the Democrat Party, interest in pro-gun groups has increased significantly, and donations to the NRA have gone up by some 300 percent.
