A recent news story about Minnesota’s commitment to transitioning to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040 has pro-gun advocates celebrating.
According to the news, utilities will be able to meet the 2040 goal by using a mix of solar, wind, hydropower, nuclear, hydrogen power, and biomass. And, it’s nuclear power that has pro-gun advocates cheering.
“We’re thrilled that Minnesota is recognizing the importance of nuclear power,” said one pro-gun advocate. “After all, nuclear power is the ultimate gun. It has the power to destroy entire cities with a single blast. And, it’s a great reminder that we need to be vigilant when it comes to protecting our right to bear arms.”
The pro-gun advocate went on to explain that if the government can use nuclear power to protect the environment, then they should also be able to use guns to protect Americans.
“The government already has nuclear weapons, so why not have guns, too? We need to be able to protect ourselves and our families from those who would do us harm.”
Clearly, pro-gun advocates are excited about Minnesota’s commitment to carbon-free electricity—not because of the environmental benefits, but because of the potential implications for gun rights.
