Amid the recent events in the state of Texas with the mass shooter that killed 19 children and 2 adults, Elon Musk wanted to chime in on what is happening right now. To those who didn’t know, recent policies in California forced Elon Musk to leave the state and seek a new home in Texas.
Practically a year into the pandemic, he decided to move most of his operations to Texas because he feels more comfortable with their policies. The tech mogul constantly talks about how better life is where he currently lives, but recent events forced him to send an email to media outlets about possible scenarios.

In a letter to the folks at CNBC, Musk wrote: “Regarding recent events, the shooters are obviously doing this to generate the most amount of attention possible. Why is the media doing exactly what the mass murderers want? I strongly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government.
“Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns. I support tight background checks for all gun sales and limiting sales of assault weapons to people in special circumstances, like gun range owners, or people who live in a high risk location, like gang warfare.”
Elon Musk also says he would also support “limiting sales of assault weapons to people in special circumstances” https://t.co/5FepqYyCyw

Musk is turning into a Republican.
The fact that he believes the government needs to be dealt with in violent fashion eventually says a lot about Elon Musk. This is the exact same discourse that some of the most prominent Republicans have talked about for decades. For some reason, they are convinced a time of civil war will come when citizens will have to stand up to their government and fight them.
Contrary to Democrats, who mostly believe bearing arms is okay but not the assault weapons you can purchase at the nearest Walmart you can find. Musk keeps showing his colors since he decided to become more politically active and all liberals are taking notes.
