John Kasich once called 2A a 'basic, constitutional right.' Here’s what he’s saying now.

What’s going on?

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is siding with progressives in the fight for greater gun control, calling for “commonsense gun laws” in the wake of the Florida school shooting.

How does Kasich define “commonsense” here?

Kasich told CNN’s Dana Bash this week that he supports banning bump stocks, devices that can be fitted onto a semi-automatic weapon to make it function like an automatic one. He has also updated his political website to remove a policy section advocating for Second Amendment protections and call for an expansion of background checks on gun sales.

The site now reads:

“As a pragmatic conservative Governor Kasich also recognizes the need for common-sense solutions to our nation’s problems. In recent years, our country has been devastated by a dramatic increase in school shootings and mass killings – many with the use of semi-automatic weapons.”

Doc’s take:

On today’s show, Doc reminded everyone that the ability to buy a gun is emblematic of our freedom in America to choose how we protect ourselves and our families.
