As you might have seen yesterday on CNN, John Kasich went all in on the idea of banning the ‘g-d darn AR-15’:
If all the sudden you couldn't buy an AR-15, what would you lose? Would you feel your second amendment rights would be eroded? These are the things that have to be looked at and action has to happen. pic.twitter.com/CefKNaMKNE— John Kasich (@JohnKasich) February 18, 2018
Just like a liberal, Kasich goes directly to banning guns. I guess that’s what he is now on this issue. Ugh.
Conservative twitter wasn’t impressed with his comments either, schooling him on the issue:
If all of a sudden I couldn’t listen to John Kasich, what would I lose? Would I feel my First Amendment rights had been violated? Well, yes, actually. Whether we want or like something is a bad test of whether we have a right to it. https://t.co/ubjcGuioZV— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) February 19, 2018

It ain't for self-defense, and it ain't for deer hunting, either. Those benefits are only byproducts. Do you know what the goal of the founders were in ratifying it? https://t.co/Dqjx1h7ILs
My AR-15 is absolutely none of your business. Go away. https://t.co/1IrITEjYLf— Alana Mastrangelo (@ARmastrangelo) February 19, 2018
Competition for the best AR-15 salesman is going to be stiff. https://t.co/nXU63Qu0i5— Mary Katharine Ham (@mkhammer) February 19, 2018
John Kasich is not fulfilling his oath to uphold the US constitution. He can no longer even be considered a progressive republican, he is a full-blown statist that belongs in the Socialist Democratic Party. https://t.co/60ifz6Jfzl— Chris Loesch (@ChrisLoesch) February 19, 2018

To go along with his new liberal stance, John Kasich had the pro-gun section of his website removed yesterday:
A pro-Second Amendment section of John Kasich’s website was removed Sunday, after the Republican governor appeared on CNN and said reasonable gun control measures should be enacted following last week’s deadly Florida school shooting.
JohnKasich.com, his political website that is separate from his governor’s site, had previously contained text and photos illustrating how he opposed former President Barack Obama’s gun control efforts and championing Ohio bills that he said removed burdensome restrictions for gun owners, according to screen shots captured by Ohio public radio journalist Karen Kasler.
That section had been scrubbed from the website by late Sunday afternoon.
Jim Geraghty has the screenshot in his article in case you want to see it:
Kasich back in 2016: “Obama’s efforts to expand the federal government’s interference with Americans’ Right to Keep and Bear Arms are wrong and the governor opposes them.” https://t.co/4Pq2xhiv5n pic.twitter.com/WuQRH48jMc— Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) February 19, 2018
