They want the United States to be a “gun free” zone under the rule of corruptocrats who violate the Constitution, trample the Bill of Rights, and enforce oppressive laws tailored to their agenda.
The irony is lost on these morons.
Senate Democrats gathered Thursday on the steps of the Capitol surrounded by about a dozen armed guards to announce a new push for tougher gun-control laws.
The officers from the U.S. Capitol Police, who carried sidearms, were in addition to the regular detail paroling the Capitol ground due the large number of elected officials attending the event, according to a officer on the scene.
About 27 Democratic senators attended the event.
They announced a set of priorities for combating gun violence, which centered on measures to expand and strengthen background checks for gun purchasers.
They echoed calls by Obama following the mass shooting last week at a community college in Oregon in which he urged Americans to put pressure on lawmakers to take action to stop the scourge of gun violence in the country.
“We are asking, as the president said, to make their voices heard,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, “We expect there will be a groundswell.”
The last groundswell happened in 2013, when Obama threatened to violate the Constitution (again) by going around Congress and making his own laws.
Try it, Chuckie. The results will be less than pleasant.
The Democrats’ priorities for gun control, which also closely mirrored the plan rolled out last week by Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton, included:
*Closing background check “loopholes,” such as stopping criminals from buying firearms at gun shows or online;
Criminals don’t bother with the normal procedures of purchasing firearms. They couldn’t care less about ‘loopholes’ or laws. Good luck with that.
*Improving background checks to include barring domestic abusers and stalkers from buying guns;
Seung-Hui Cho passed a background check before killing 32 people and wounding 17 at Virginia Tech.
Jared Loughner passed a background check before killing 6 people and wounding 13 in Tucson.
James Holmes passed a background check before killing 12 people and injuring 58 in Aurora.
Adam Lanza … well, he murdered his mother before killing 26 other people with guns stolen from her. Lanza’s mother, of course, passed a background check.
Bryce Williams, the deranged ‘Black Lives Matter’ puke who gunned down two white former co-workers in a racially-motivated murder, passed a background check.
*And shutting down the “illegal gun pipeline” by making straw purchasing of guns and gun trafficking a federal crime.
The assholes may want to start with Barky and Holder’s “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation to Mexico that resulted in hundreds of murders on both sides of the border.
“The victims and their families deserve better than a Congress that shrugs its shoulders and waited for the next tragedy,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon Democrat. “They deserve action.”
They deserve common sense; something that is lacking in the brains of leftwingnuts.
When some deranged wackjob walks right past the “gun-free zone” sign prominently displayed outside a school and opens fire on students, it doesn’t stop the gun control idiots from blaming the firearms instead of the nutbag who wielded them.
Screaming for “gun control” plays well with the leftwingnuts, who wet themselves just talking about guns.
Bottom line: Armed criminals deliberately choose soft, unarmed targets. They couldn’t give one shit less about the idea of restrictive gun laws. Every law-abiding American citizen has the right to defend themselves from low life thugs and deranged psychos in spite of the Left’s fatuous politicizing.
