Correction: The new social media laws that went into effect were passed by Australia, not New Zealand; the headline has been edited to correct the error. Our apologies.

After a gunman killed 49 people in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, it took about a week for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to announce a ban on all assault weapons and “military-style automatic weapons.”

A lot of Americans cheered Ardern’s leadership, but Dana Loesch pointed out the reality of the ban, which included a mandatory buy-back of weapons:

Again, they rammed all that through in a week. And now, a couple of weeks later, New Zealand has new laws cracking down on violent content on social media.

… and this is why law-abiding gun owners in America appreciate the Second Amendment and how it protects the First Amendment.

Guaranteed.

It’s the same approach London Mayor Sadiq Khan took after Muslim terrorists in a rental van with 12-inch ceramic knives strapped to their wrists ran down pedestrians on London Bridge, ditched the vehicle, and then began stabbing patrons at the Borough Market — he called for YouTube to crack down on videos that could encourage gang violence and knife crime.

What’s sad is how so many Americans don’t truly appreciate the Bill of Rights. And that’s why Cory Booker can stuff it when he says he’s going to “take down” the NRA.
