Bernie Sanders is expected to run for President in 2020.
And he took the first step this week.
But he got caught in an embarrassing photograph that exposed the biggest lie of his life.
Sanders was addressing anti-gun students who walked out of school in order to march on the Capitol and demand Congress gut the Second Amendment and disarm American citizens.
But Sanders did not travel alone.
The Vermont Senator attended the rally under the protection of armed guards.
The Daily Caller reports:
“A national school walk-out was held today by students protesting gun violence across the country, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders joined students in DC marching on the U.S. capitol.
So did his armed guards.
In multiple locations, students hit the streets and parking lots in their respective school districts to “walk out’” in solidarity with the Parkland students who are calling for more gun control after their school attacked by a deranged gunman. 17 students died in the attack. The former presidential candidate was part of a group of progressive congressmen addressing the Washington, DC march.
Sanders began a live stream of his speech on his Facebook page, which featured him wading through the crowd of cheering students and shaking hands. As Sanders traveled through the gun-control crowd, at least three heavily armed Capitol police officers could be seen protecting him and clearing a way for the Senator through the students. Multiple times in the live feed, the police can be heard asking the students to step back and move away from Sanders.”
The Democrat race in 2020 will be a race to the bottom on who can stake out the most outrageous ground on banning guns.
A recent poll found nearly half of all Democrats supported banning all firearms.
But Sanders has some work to do there.
He was endorsed by the NRA in a campaign for Congress back in 1990 against a sitting Congressman who supported an assault weapons ban.
Sanders also pledged to oppose legislation that would require a waiting period to purchase a handgun.
Now Sanders marches in lockstep with a Democrat base that hates guns and hates gun owners.
And like all anti-gun leftists, he has no problem traveling under the protection of armed guards.
That’s because he knows the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
Meanwhile, Sanders – and other anti-gun elites – will work endlessly to strip away the rights of everyday Americans to defend themselves.
Sanders appearance at a rally to gut Americans right to protect their families is a stark reminder of his personal hypocrisy.
