Does Sen. John Kerry, a supporter of the so-called “assault weapons” ban, own a “Communist Chinese assault rifle,” as suggested by his remarks in the October issue of Outdoor Life?

If so, the Second Amendment Foundation wants to know where Kerry keeps that rifle, if it is legally registered, and how the senator got it into the United States, SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb said today.

“Senator Kerry’s own words once again trip him up in an apparent hypocrisy,” Gottlieb stated. “Responding to a question from Outdoor Life about whether he is a gun owner, and if so, what’s his favorite gun, Kerry strongly intimates he has an assault rifle, which is illegal to own both in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.”

The Kerry quote appears on Page 82 of the October issue of Outdoor Life. In that comment, the senator states, “My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam. I don’t own one of those now, but one of my reminders of my service is a Communist Chinese assault rifle.”

“Here’s another example of Kerry running on his Vietnam service history,” Gottlieb observed, “which has become a major campaign issue, for the wrong reasons. Now he’s talking as if he’s got an assault rifle stashed somewhere, while he’s been railing against their ownership by other law-abiding American citizens.

“Senator Kerry,” Gottlieb demanded, “where’s the rifle? In which one of your mansions are you hiding that gun? Why should it be okay for you to have a Communist Chinese assault rifle when you think nobody else should have one? And if you don’t have one, why would you intimate to Outdoor Life that you do?

“Senator,” Gottlieb continued, “you told a crowd in St. Louis on Sept. 10 that, ‘As a hunter, I have never ever thought about going hunting with an AK-47 or an Uzi or anything else’. So, then why would a Communist Chinese assault rifle be your favorite gun?

“Whether he is lying about owning the gun, or just being a hypocrite,” Gottlieb concluded, “this remark is just more proof that Senator Kerry is full of crap.”

The Second Amendment Foundation is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 600,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, CT; and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers & an amicus brief & fund for the Emerson case holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.
