Sometimes, I am amazed, and literally appalled, at how many good and decent people fail to keep up with current events that have the potential to adversely affect their lives and those of their families, or those who draw conclusions from the occasional sound bite or headline, never looking beyond the bold print at the underlying - sometimes, extremely adverse - ramifications.
The disgustingly, adoring liberal media, intentionally promotes half truths and outright lies to the ill informed public. This is particularly true when it comes to guns and the second amendment. The liberal media usually turns to their darling liberal legislators (who they think are experts on certain subjects) for sound bites to support their cause.
The following are actual far-fetched, emotional and dramatic claims from Democrats pushing their gun control agenda:
Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY): Has no clue what a “barrel shroud” is, although she wants to regulate it and the term is in her legislation. Best she can do is “it’s a shoulder thing that goes up.”
Former Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington (D-NY) . This is crazy. … But some of these bullets have an incendiary device on the tip of it, … which is a heat seeking device. So you don’t shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do, you could cook it at the same time.”
State Senator Kevin De Leon (D-CA): “This is a ‘ghost gun.’ This right here has the ability with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty, magazine, clip, in half a second”.
Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO): "What's the efficacy of banning these magazine clips? I will tell you, these are ammunition, they're bullets, so the people who have those now, they're going to shoot them" says. According to her, "the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will be shot and there won't be any more available."
Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA): We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.
Sacramento City Council Women Sandy Sheedy (D): There are a lot of people who have been shot by an unloaded gun and whether it's loaded or not, it still presents a threat.
Vice President Joe Biden (D-VP): Offers this pearl of wisdom regarding home security: “… if you want to protect yourself, get a double barreled shotgun,” says Joe. “If there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put [up] that double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.”............Only Crazy Joe would say something as stupid as this!!!
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY): I spent much of my time in office “trying to stop bad things from happening,” instead of doing “good things”? Senator Schumer also says those who are pro-gun control should “admit there is a Second Amendment right to bear arms” and that “no amendment is absolute.”
Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D-NYC): Who doesn’t know the difference between a semi-auto and a fully automatic weapon. Mr. Brain Trust defines an “assault weapon” as anything that can fire a lot of bullets quickly.
Democratic Colorado State Representative Joe Salazar: “It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody.”
What the liberal media is not telling the ill informed people are these actual quotes on gun control:
- “One man with a gun can control 100 without one.” – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin.
- “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” – Mao Tze Tung.
- “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.” - Adolf Hitler.
My advice for All. Dig a little deeper for knowledge America, lest we perish for lack of knowledge and from a corrupt government who would love to disarm the public.
