Former police officer Dianna Muller, fresh off her explosive testimony to the House Judiciary Committee hearing on assault weapons, said Thursday that gun owners need to “get involved and engaged” because the Second Amendment is at stake, FOX News reports.
“What we’re up against is a very well-organized, well-funded effort to take guns away from American citizens,” the former Tulsa, Okla., officer and founder of gun advocacy group The DC Project told “Fox & Friends.”
“If you are a gun owner and you feel like you’re under attack, you need to call your congressmen and, you know, it sounds cliche, but it’s more important now than ever,” Muller said, adding she has drawn a “line in the sand.”
Muller made a bold proclamation during the congressional hearing regarding a proposed assault weapons ban, vowing that she would not comply.
“Please don’t legislate the 150 million people just like me into being criminals. It has happened. You’ve already done it. I was a bump stock owner, and I had to make a decision: do I become a felon, or do I comply? Should the government pass an assault-weapons ban, “I will not comply.”
Swearer also testified against the idea that law-abiding citizens have no need for weapons like AR-15s, recalling how her mother, a gun novice, had difficulty accurately firing a handgun at a shooting range, but was much more effective when she used an AR-15.
Muller and others at the hearing focused on the practicality of a ban, pointing out what they claimed were mainly “cosmetic” differences between weapons such as the AR-15 and standard semi-automatic hunting rifles. This issue was also raised by Heritage Foundation senior legal policy analyst Amy Swearer when Rep.Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., went down the line of witnesses asking if they believed hunting rifles should be banned if they are semi-automatic.
Swearer said no, stating that there was no difference in the mechanics or function of an “assault weapon” or a semi-automatic hunting rifle. Dayton, Ohio Mayor Nan Whaley, who recalled the recent mass shooting in her city, did not give a definitive answer to Sensenbrenner’s question, nor did Dr. Alejandro Rios Tovar, a trauma surgeon who treated victims of the attack in El Paso, Texas. Charlottesville, Va., Chief of Police RaShall Brackney indicated she was in favor of a ban on “any weapon that could be used to hunt individuals.”
“As I read the Second Amendment, it doesn’t say the right to bear arms shall not be infringed unless the gun has scary features,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said.
