F*ck Tulsi Gabbard.
She's a lying sack of sh*t.
Every single time I talked to her staff about Gabbard's position on an upcoming bill re gun rights in one form or another, they would say "she hasn't made a decision yet".... sometimes less than 24 hours before the vote... and, guess what, every single time she voted to nullify our rights. EVERY SINGLE TIME.
I will never believe a single word that comes out of her mouth if those words are anything but totalitarian anti-gun talking points. She's a politician.

Here's how the commies (aka "Democrats") describe her "gun control" positions:

Ban assault weapons; require universal background checks
In Congress, Gabbard has co-sponsored bills that would ban assault weapons and require background checks for all gun purchases, including closing what is known as the "gun-show loophole."

Advocate for sensible gun control
Tulsi has a consistent record of advocating for sensible gun control. She has long called for reinstating a federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity clips, requiring comprehensive pre-purchase background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, and making sure that terrorists are not allowed to buy guns. Tulsi is focused on building bipartisan solutions that can actually be passed into law, rather than using the issue as a partisan political football.
Tulsi Gabbard on gun control measures:
H.R. 1565 & H.R. 1217: To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System
H.R. 2380: Gun Show Loophole Closing Act: To require criminal background checks at gun shows.
H.R. 226: Keeping Guns from High Risk Individuals Act
H.R. 1745: Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction: a tax credit for surrendering to authorities certain assault weapons.

From her own campaign literature, proudly proclaiming:
"Tulsi has an F-rating from the NRA, a 0% rating by the Hawaii Rifle Association, and a 100% rating by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence."
