Huckabee calls on gun dealers to commit ‘mass disobedience’ in resistance to background checks

It’s no secret that former Governor of Arkansas and GOP 2016 Clown Car member Mike Huckabee strongly opposes any and all gun control legislation. To illustrate this extreme position, he is now calling for gun dealers to engage in “mass civil disobedience” to defy a potential executive action that would require background checks for those purchasing guns from dealers who sell more than a certain number of firearms each year.

Huckabee, is, of course, no stranger to telling people to break the law. He infamously supported Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in direct defiance of the Supreme Court. Now, this potential action seeks to close legal background check loopholes by seeking to “impose background checks on individuals who buy from dealers who sell a significant number of guns each year.”

Huckabee is a good gun nut, and he says that if this action becomes law, he and his fellow Christian gun hoisters “have to stand up and say, ‘no, we’re not going to do it.’”

Then again, the GOP presidential contenders never did put much stake in common sense on any issue, and this one is no different. Unsurprisingly, it looks like Huckabee will be leading the pack in this latest bout of proposed lawbreaking.
