U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- It has been rumored for years that Democrat/Progressive/Socialists want to take our guns. Times change and campaign donors change too. Socialist candidates today tell their big donors that they will support gun confiscation. These rights-restricting politicians also hope the rest of us won’t hear about their campaign promises until after the election. This time we have them telling the truth on video, and in black and white.
91 percent of Democrat Congressmen supported a bill to outlaw most contemporary firearms.
The exceptions in the bill are for the guns owned by police. In short, almost all the Democrat Congressmen want guns for the state, but not for the citizens..and they said it for all to see. There was no Republican support to this bill, so why did the Democrats forward it when they knew it wouldn’t pass?
Several billionaire socialist campaign donors want gun confiscation. These donors wanted to see model legislation proposed before they would dump another tens of millions of dollars into the campaign. These wealthy donors needed a commitment that the Democrats were more serious about passing gun-control than the Republicans had been about supporting the right to bear arms. It was “show me” time.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D) said gun-control would be a priority if the Democrats take control of the House. That was a start, but it wasn’t enough for the wealthy Democrat donors. The Democrat minority in Congress filed gun control bill, HR 5087 in February, and 176 of the 193 Democrat congressmen signed up as co-sponsors. HR 5087 defined most contemporary firearms as assault weapons and banned them. This includes all ARs, AKs, and their variants. The bill also included many semi-automatic handguns.
There, they said it out loud again, ‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all it.’
Democrats usually want to keep their gun-confiscation proposals out of the public spotlight. We have a name for it when you tell say one thing to one group of voters and then contradict yourself with another group. It is called lying, and we’ve seen a bunch of it. In particular, we’ve seen it from Democrats McCaskill, Sinema, Gillum, Spanberger, Heitkamp, and Beto O’Rourke. If your Democrat congressman says he is pro-gun, then he is lying too. I’m sorry you were lied to. I know it hurts because I’ve felt it before.
The question isn’t if Democrat politicians are lying to their moderate voters. The question is if the voters are paying attention. We’ll find out on November 6th.
How do you defeat billionaires trying to buy elections?
You beat Bloomberg, Soros, and Steyer by voting.
It’s that easy.
