Democrat Leader: We’re Going to Ban Handguns Next

March 11, 2013

People who defend their tyrannical leaders have to engage in mental aerobics — namely denial and delusions. Every day, dozens of leftists post on our Facebook page claiming “nobody wants to ban your guns”… even though Obama is literally having press conferences about banning guns I own. Either way, this should be proof that yes, a comprehensive gun ban is their goal.

A Democrat leader in the House of Representatives, Rep. Jan Schakowsky from Illinois, is promising that an assault weapons ban is “just the beginning”. Handguns are next, just like they are in Illinois. In other words, the gun control laws that are failing in Chicago are soon going to be the goal for the entire country.

There’s a reason that the political divide in America is so strong and is growing stronger. Some people want tyranny regardless of how many people it kills, how many lives it ruins, and regardless of what studies show. They aren’t motivated by facts — they want the state to grow in power, and it’s only about that. The conversation and admission is below. reports:

“We want everything on the table,” Schakowsky told Mattera. “This is a moment of opportunity. There’s no question about it.”

One poignant exchange was as follows:

Schakowsky: We’re on a roll now, and I think we’ve got to take the–you know, we’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.

Mattera: So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?

Schakowsky: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun… something [Violence]. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.

Get ready, because it’s going to be a rough ride over the next few years. They want to ban assault weapons, and they want to repeat the mistakes of Chicago, the UK, and DC — they want to ban handguns as well. Remember, handgun crime doubled in the UK after the handgun ban. Not just crime — handgun crime specifically. The ban was a complete and total failure.

They’ve lied about the statistics. They’ve ignored the facts. They’ve used sexism to justify disarming women. Don’t make a mistake — your well being was never their goal.

Of course, the original intent of the Second Amendment is clear, but that won’t slow them. Their goal isn’t the law, it isn’t liberty, it isn’t safety — their goal is power. And that’s it.
