21 Democrats Demand They, and all Members of Congress, be Disarmed

21 Democrats Demand They, and all Members of Congress, be Disarmed

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- New Member of Congress, Second Amendment supporter, and Open Carrier, Lauren Boebert, refuses to back down from the Deep State in Washington D.C. She is going to exercise her Second Amendment rights in D.C. and the Capitol.  Now, as a member of the favored few, in Congress, she has rights and privileges most of us do not. She is using her status to fight for the rest of the country, and the Constitution.

Because she is willing to openly exercise her Second Amendment rights, with strong, protected, symbolic speech, Democrat members of the House are working to eliminate those rights. From foxnews.com:

“The Democrats are always up for stripping away our Constitutional rights and feel threatened when we simply want to exercise those rights,” Boebert told Fox News Wednesday. “I carry a firearm to protect myself and want to exercise my right to do so in one of the most dangerous cities in America. They want to take that right away from me. I look forward to helping make sure they can’t.”

Those members of Congress were perfectly willing to allow members of Congress to have the right to keep and bear arms, as long as it was on the “low down”, in the closet, lest the public gets the idea the Second Amendment actually meant something. But now that the principled Representative Boebert refuses to stay in the Second Amendment closet, that is not allowed.

The Orwellian statement of Representative Huffman is a good place to start. From Representative Jared Huffman, (D) California:

“Threats of political violence are on the rise, and it makes all of us less safe if Members of Congress don’t have to comply with gun safety standards. I led my colleagues in a call to modernize the House’s outdated & dangerous rules for everyone’s safety.”

Notice Huffman, in his statement, calls for generic and mild sounding “gun safety standards”.  The statement is about the letter he promoted and signed with 20 other Democrat House Members. The particulars are clear. The letter calls for a complete ban on guns.

There is no error: Huffman equates “gun safety standards” with a complete gun ban.

From the letter to Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, and Kevin McCarthy, Minority Leader, bold added:

Ultimately, the current regulations create needless risk for Members of Congress, their staff, members of the Capitol Police, and visitors to the Capitol grounds. A provision in the Rules package directing the Capitol Police Board to ensure that Member of Congress may not possess firearms on Capitol grounds would ensure clarity surrounding firearms policy and protect all individuals in and around the Capitol. We urge inclusion of this commonsense protection in the 117th Congress.

This is the simplistic, emotional, and fact-free phobia of gun hatred. A former essay on this subject is linked here.  It is, simply, Guns are Bad. It is an irrational fear. It is a mental condition.  It is dangerous, to allow people with this sort of mental illness to be in a position of power in Congress.

It makes you wonder why these Democrats do not call for taking away guns from the Capitol Police.

Democrats who openly state that a total ban on guns is a “gun safety measure” are listed below. Their district information is available with an easy couple of clicks at congress.gov. The link for Nanette Barragan is given as an example, to show what is available.

  • Nanette Barragan, District 44, California (Los Angeles)
  • Donald S. Beyer, Jr., District 8, Virginia (Alexandria, half inside the beltway at D.C.)
  • Salud Carbajal, District 24, California (Los Angeles along coast to North)
  • Andre Carson, District 7 Indiana (Indianapolis)
  • Sean Casten, District 6, Illinois (West Chicago suburbs)
  • David Cicilline, District 1, Rhode Island
  • Veronica Escobar, District 16, Texas (El Paso)
  • Raul Grijalva, Arizona, District 3, (highly gerrymandered, Tucson, Phoenix, Yuma)
  • Jahana Hayes, Connecticut, District 5
  • Jared Huffman, California, District 2, (San Francisco)
  • Pramila Jayapal, Washington State, District 7, (Seattle)
  • Daniel T. Kildee, Michigan, District 5
  • Robin Kelly, District 2, Illinois (Chicago)
  • Grace Meng, District 6, New York, (New York)
  • Eleanor Norton, District of Columbia, non-voting
  • David Price, District 4, North Carolina, (Durham)
  • Mike Quigley, District 5, Illinois, (Chicago)
  • Jan Schakowsky, Distrct 9, Illinois, (Chicago metroplex)
  • Mark Takano, District 41, California, (Riverside)

It is painful for this correspondent to notice Raul Grijalva from Arizona is one of those listed. Raul is a disgrace to the state. He is in a safe district. Perhaps some Arizona citizens will read this and realize their rights will always be in danger while he is in public office. Fortunately, he does not seem to be very energetic.

By the way, how many of you know that governor kelly came from New York?? Yep, it is a definite fact that she is most certainly a NYer and her mindset is valid evidence of this. I have gone off on her a half dozen times about her arrogant rudeness and she still blatantly refuses to respond. She considers all of us her peasants to be ruled over, not seeing herself as our Elected Representative, well I should say, the left’s Elected Representative as I sure the devil didn’t vote for that Loser of a human being!!!!

Our Kansas Constitution, Section 7 states, and I quote: “It is unlawful for any official, agent or employee of the government of the United States, or employee of a corporation providing services to the government of the United States to enforce or attempt to enforce any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States regarding a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately and owned in the state of Kansas and that remains within the borders of Kansas. Violation of this section is a severity level 10 nonperson felony.” Meaning… Read more »

Another good article Dean. Pelosi, et al care about their own security, but not that of you or me. She has armed security with her, takes USAF airplanes anywhere she wants to go. Has not only Capital Police at her beck and call, but the executive protection force. Metal detectors and armed guards at entrances/exits to Congress. We pay for all that security, yet they want average citizens to dial 911 if there is an issue. Standards should be the same. You think some mother out there should dial 911, you should have the same level of security. Take away… Read more »

Same Old Same Old! I have been asking and waiting on The Right and The Left to free up all those Gun Free Zone they call their Offices, and they have done nothing. Now if it is Ok for this young lady to Carry then it should be Ok for all of US to carry right beside her. Simple as that. They ain’t gonna allow Us to do what she is doing, Sick, Sad, same old BS.

So why exactly do these idiots “feel less safe” with guns in Congress? Maybe they should try “feeling less stupid” and see if that helps. Obviously their “feelings” are very important to them as they put way more value and importance on them than actual facts or truth in general. Surely, since feeling are so important to them they’d be willing to give it a shot.

Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert’s constiuents elected her to carry a firearm in the Halls of the Swamp.

Damn, where is AOC and the Squad?

BTW, anyone want to comment to these 21 morons find their campaign websites and do so. Their official sites are only available to constituents.

Grijalva is an embarrassment to Arizona, as is the recent election of Kelly if in fact it was legitimate. Seeing Arizona now colored blue on the political maps likes to break my heart.
For the entire time that the survey was run Arizona was the most gun friendly state in the Union. Bet that won’t hold for the 2001 vote.

This is a great example of how they feel about the rest of us plebeians. If they don’t trust a congress person to safely carry, who would they trust? If they had their way, certainly none of us would be allowed to even see firearms in a museum. After all guns are bad, evil and dangerous.

Drama.

There are numerous important gun control issues on which she could be working. One of those is educating white, suburban women on the many lies about criminals, crime, and firearms upon which gun control is justified.

She chose a low-impact, high-drama issue to put her in the spotlight.

Will, try this: decide what policy you believe in and then critique individual politicians against your standard. It’s invigorating and intellectually rewarding.

Conversely, starting with the politician (and deciding you like them) and then going through extreme, convoluted contortions to defend the politician (who is not in-line with your beliefs on a particular point) is exhausting.

If Boebert comes out next week with a lucid, thorough statement on the activities of the BATFE, I’ll be the first one to praise her.

BTW, my friend, I think you forgot to say “thanks” about that other matter.

I’m not very good at translating illuminati-speak, but I believe Patriot Solutions was inferring that Boebert is attractive. I couldn’t care less what she looks like, but a few leg-humpers on this site keep raising the issue. She is a very average-looking Colorado female.

You and I agree on a whole lot of things. I realize that you don’t like me pointing out Trump’s record regarding the 2nd Amendment and the fact that the BATFE reports to him. However, I’m sure you’ve seen my post listing numerous accomplishments of Trump and how I was grateful of what he did. Here they are again: o  Taxes; o  Reducing unnecessary EPA regulations; o  Extricating the U.S. from unnecessary and costly foreign entanglements; o  Providing better tools to the military in the event they do need to engage in military action; o  Removing insane rules of engagement that unnecessarily put military personnel… Read more »

I keep bringing up the fact that the BATFE reports to Trump because people keep repeating “The BATFE is a rogue agency.”

Stalin spoke about telling big lies and telling them often.

“because the law abiding will without hesitation comply to their master….” Yeah, about that. One day this week I went to our county seat and paid my taxes for the year. I like getting a signed receipt. So I went to the County building which houses the Treasurer’s office along with the County Court and various other offices. They have a sign on the door about no guns allowed. Well, it may have not been “allowed” but my handgun went in and out of the building as I did. Concealed means concealed. Been doing it for decades there and everywhere… Read more »

In truth the only time my retirement credentials have come out of the safe in the last eight years is when the wife and I have travelled to another State. Not so I have an out not available to others but to lend another level of credence to my words while speaking to the on scene authorities if necessary to do so. They are not a magical talisman.

LOL. “Feisty firearms rights activist goes to Washington and fights for . . . the right of government employees to continue to carry guns!”

Talk about tone deaf.

Lauren, the BATFE has upped their game of infringement over the last two and a half years (first at the order of Trump and for the last several months on their own initiative). We wanted you to fight for our rights – not yours. You haven’t said anything about the BATFE despite the fact that you have a voice.

She’s been tweeting non-stop. The tweets are all about ingratiating herself with establishment Republicans. Not one condemning the actions of the BATFE. Why? Because the BATFE reports to Republicans and she doesn’t want to make waves in her own party. She is being a politician. She’s found time to do interviews explaining how she is going to fight for the rights of government employees to continue to carry firearms. She’s no shrinking violet who needs white knights to rush to her defense. She’s a politician and needs constant pressure to do the right thing. There are thousands of Republican politicians… Read more »

It should be noted that Jared Huffman is also the walking waste of space that is attacking Christianity. He is one of the main co-authors of a document calling on Biden/Harris for the stripping of protections guarding 1st amendment protected freedoms, but most notably religion. Especially if you are an “Evil Right wing Christian”.

You can see that info here…
SecularDemocratsofAmerica_Blueprint_BidenHarrisTransition_11-30-20_FINAL.pdf (seculardems.org)

They are coming for the entire Constitution, while claiming to be its protectors. They are not. Huffman is a traitor, and there is no other word more suitable to describe his character other than “Evil”.

With all the people at the Capital walking around with guns on their belts it would take me about 15 seconds to get one plus whatever mags they were carrying. Stupid people are humorous in a stupid kind of way.

I’ve been saying for years that I don’t feel the need to carry a firearm at all times. Because when I really NEED one, the odds are in my favor that someone will shove one right in my face!
