Dem Candidate Jokes About Prying Guns From Owners’ ‘Cold, Dead Hands’

A Democrat running in North Carolina told a gun control group that he has no problem taking guns out of owners' "cold, dead hands."

Democrat Daryl Fisher, a candidate for Buncombe County Sheriff in North Carolina, joked that he would be fine with prying guns from owners’ “cold, dead hands” at a meeting with Moms Demand Action earlier in March.

“How far do we go?” Fisher asked rhetorically. “Any weapon that’s designed for use by the military, I think we should ban.” He told the gun control group that they shouldn’t be intimidated by right-wing “scare tactics.”

“You’ve heard people say, ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold, dead hands,'” Fisher said. The Democrat then shrugged his shoulders and commented, “Ok!”

The crowd cheered at his suggestion.

“Whenever you pass away, we’ll come get it!” he told the crowd.

“Joking just a little bit there,” Fisher added.

Second-amendment supporters often use the “cold, dead hands” line as a rebuke to perceived government tyranny.
