Elon Musk and gun control: “serves against government tyranny” | Digital Trends Spanish

The massacre in a Texas school reopened the debate in the United States on the possession of weapons, and the technological mogul Elon Musk decided to send a letter to CNBC to address the issue.

In the letter, the owner of Tesla and potential buyer of Twitter referred to the legitimate option that citizens can own weapons, but under stricter measures.

«I firmly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against possible government tyranny. Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns,” Musk said in an email to CNBC.

In any case, Elon Musk asked that the verifications for those weapons possessions be stricter on the part of the authorities.

In addition, it considers it necessary to limit the assault rifle sales to people in “special circumstances,” such as shooting range owners or those who live in a “high-risk location” where there is “gang warfare.”
