Elon Musk says gun ownership is 'an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government'

Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has spoken out in support of American citizens' God-given Second Amendment rights.

Musk told CNBC via emails on Wednesday that gun ownership is "an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government."

He said he is in favor of "background checks" for firearm sales and that he only supports restricting assault weapon sales to individuals in special situations.

He explained that a special situation for restricted sales would be when there's a "high risk" that weapons could be used in "gang warfare."

Musk continued by noting that the right to bear arms serves as a critical check against the possibility of tyrannical governments.

"Regarding recent events, the shooters are obviously doing this to generate the most amount of attention possible," Musk wrote, according to the outlet.

"Why is the media doing exactly what the mass murderers want?" Musk asked.

"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," Musk noted.

Musk, who plans to purchase Twitter and transform it into a platform that upholds the principle of free speech, said last week that he plans to vote Republican.

"In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party," Musk tweeted.

"But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.

"Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold …"

A few hours later, left-wing outlet Business Insider reported unsupported claims of sexual misconduct allegations made against Musk.

Musk has denied the veracity of the claims.

"In my 30 year career, including the entire MeToo era, there’s nothing to report, but, as soon as I say I intend to restore free speech to Twitter & vote Republican, suddenly there is …" Musk tweeted.

SpaceX president and COO Gwynne Shotwell noted in an email to employees last week that the allegations against Musk are untrue.

Shotwell revealed that no such allegations have been made at the company.

"Personally, I believe the allegations to be false; not because I work for Elon, but because I have worked closely with him for 20 years and never seen nor heard anything resembling these allegations," Shotwell noted in the email to employees, according to CNBC.
