Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- When Republicans won historic landslide victories in 1994, it was due in large part to the fact that a relatively moderate Democrat Party had promoted and passed an “Assault Weapons Ban” (AWB) which cut across the grain of gun owners of all parties and all walks of life.

Fast forward to 2013, gun owners of all walks of life exist in even greater numbers, and the Democrat Party is showing them even greater disrespect.

And now, radicalized Democrats are pushing a new AWB, which contains bans on many semi-automatic handguns, 20 and 30 round ammunition magazines, private gun sales, and transfer of firearms between family members. Bill Clinton is warning Democrats to stop.

Drunk on the power they weld in the Senate and the White House, Democrats have once again underestimated to the passions of the common man and stand at the threshold of sparking a grassroots extravaganza that will sweep them out of power in 2014.

Speaking to Democrat donors from the business world, Clinton said of gun owners: “A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the [politicians] proposing these [gun control measures].” He went to intimate that these worlds are increasingly in conflict, and that the gun control push could be setting Democrats up for a long fall with a hard landing.

Clinton warned that gun owners cannot be “patronized” and that it’s a mistake to “[look] down your nose at them.”

As he spoke, it was clear that Clinton thinks Obama may be overplaying his hand, giving birth to a reinvigorated Tea Party movement that is already diminishing votes for Democrats in 2014. In hopes of stopping this momentum shift, Clinton warned that the tactics Obama used to win in southern states like Florida has to be employed now, as “that’s the only way [Democrats] will ever be able to even up votes in the midterms as [issues like guns] come up.”

The bottom line: Democrats who know history know that this new gun control push is not going to end well at the polls.
