Congressional candidate Tedra Cobb (D-NY-21) says she supports banning “assault rifles” but cannot publicly admit it because gun control support would cost her the election.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Cobb told her supporters, “When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?’ And I said they should be banned.” She went on to say that she could not admit supporting a ban because it would cost her the election.
In the recording Cobb said Moms Demand Action had warned her not to admit her support of an “assault rifle” ban during the campaign.
Cobb said, “I said Moms Demand [Action] says, and Tricia Pleau said, ‘Do not say that you want an assault rifle ban because you will not win.
