Democrat Admits Senate Gun-Control Plan ‘Just the Beginning’

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) admitted something we all knew last weekend at the March for our Lives rally in Parkland, Florida, when asked about the gun control “framework” that a bipartisan group of 20 Senators have said they support.

It’s just the beginning, she said, and more “significant” gun control is coming.

“We were expecting moderate reform at best, I wasn’t expecting anything of significance,” Wasserman Schultz told MSNBC’s Alex Witt.  “Anything you can do to put an obstacle in the path of someone who would do themselves or someone else harm and save a life, is a step we should take while saying we should push for a lot more. This is only the beginning, it has to be only the beginning, not the end.”

Wasserman Schultz added that “extremists” will now likely target Senate Republicans and “everyone in congress.”

“We absolutely have an opportunity to move forward, and let me just be clear, Alex, for those of us who support much more significant reform, this is just the beginning,” she said. “We have to begin to make some progress, I’m glad that those 10 senators had the courage thus far.”

In Congress, Wasserman Schultz is far from being a back-bench first-termer. When she makes an admission like this – that the Senate plan is just the beginning and more gun control is coming – she is certainly not speaking out of turn. She has been in Congress since 2005 and serves as the Chief Deputy Whip of the Democratic Caucus. She was the first woman to chair the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Subcommittee, and she also serves on the Committee on Oversight and Reform, which according to her website, “has vast jurisdiction over the government and private sector, and plays a key role in overseeing the Biden Administration.”

Wasserman Schultz’s comments prove that if we willingly give the gun banners a slice of bread every time we sit down with them, eventually, they’ll have the whole loaf. She just said the quiet part out loud. There will be no appeasement if we agree to let them infringe on our constitutional rights. All the Senate plan will do is whet their appetite.

It is clear based on the Congresswoman’s comments that their true goals remain “assault weapon” and standard-capacity magazine bans and restricting firearm sales to those over 21. These were their goals before the Senate “framework” agreement was announced. These remain their goals today.

Anyone who thinks that the bipartisan Senate plan will somehow stop the gun banners from trying to achieve their ultimate goal of total civilian disarmament is deluding themselves. They will never stop. There will be no appeasement, regardless of what happens in the Senate.

It’s us or them.

If we hand in our guns to the government either piecemeal or all at once what will protect us from the government?

The Communists – er, I mean the Democrats – are desperate to disarm as many law-abiding citizens as possible as quickly as they can because they already have multiple plans in place to steal the November elections which, if the elections were fair and honest, they know they will lose in an unprecedented slaughter. And they know that when they do that, there is going to be an uprising.

Democrats are seeking total control over the people using everything in the tool box. Rhino republicans are onboard as all swamp species are looking for a place in the new pecking order.
The question is how many Americans are they willing to sacrifice to achieve total control over the people. If you are not sure look to Australia Europe New Zealand China Russia 197 countries are now on the train.

NEVER FORGET: NSSF took “NO POSITION” on this betrayal.

Not surprising given their favorite saying:

“Our ATF partners.” -NSSF

Like every other time Democrats beg for ‘common sense’ gun control, once is NOT enough! They will keep chipping away at the Second Amendment until there is nothing left. That is EXACTLY why we must not cave on ANY of the onerous attacks on law abiding people.

Odd how so many people fail to understand that the ONLY WAY the government can have ANY power over you is IF YOU ALLOW IT!

john

I agree
This is a two sided coin when the government can limit your purchase power the government has effectively gain control over its people. Our government continues to limit the freedoms of many with market manipulation.

This affects everyone differently. examples baby formula medicine for those on fixed incomes the price of fuel interest rates , Ammo & Guns even you ability to by a new car to the food we eat.

Waiting approval ?????

Never forget that democrats were willing to remove all our freedoms with the largest terror event in history.The coronavirus a man made virus enriched through gain of function research that happened here in the USA. It now is fact not fiction in 2016 those under the Obama administration CDC NHI & ECO DR Fauci offshored the virus to China. Not one single criminal act has been brought against any politician from a mayor to the president of the United States. Our own government has been willing to in prison it citizens with tactics that were proven ineffective. Do not be… Read more »

The answer to all federal usurpations against the RKBA is the state level Second Amendment Preservation Act. By making it illegal for any state actors to assist the federals in the enforcement of their illegal legislation, their ability to do so is severely inhibited. It slows it to a halt since they do not have the manpower to enforce and rely on locals to help. State legislators can hobble the federal in this manner quite easily with the SAPA. The biggest obstacle to this law is law enforcement and the legacy press. LEO does not want to endanger their grant… Read more »

Clearly the gun banners haven’t a clue what the four basic gun safety rules are. Here we have ignorance of the fourth rule, “always be certain of your target and what’s behind it.” As they routinely choose to ignore the obvious target – criminals and their violence, honest and legal gun owners are forced to duck and run for cover from their wild shots into good people.

There is more people ending their lives by using illegal drugs that are laced with Fentanyl yet our elected officials are very quiet about stopping the drug cartels from sending this poison into our country with the open southern border they won’t secure.
We have elected officials that need to be sent home and out of the government control machine.
No new laws are needed about guns, enforce the laws on the books.

These Anti-Constitutional SYCOPHANTS, communists and NAZIs MUST be OUSTED from EVERY Public Office POST HASTE! I do not care how THEY label themselves! SOOOooo tired of these Anti-Americans that are trying to DESTROY America and CANCELLING Legal Law Abiding American Citizens RIGHTS that ARE ACKNOWLEDGED by OUR AMERICAN CONSTITUTION!!!!!

Captn John

They are pushing for the 2nd revolution. It will be different from the last. There will be a list and they will be removed from earth one at a time. Not in dc but on their home turf. 100 body guards will not be able to protect them. Not only politicians but those that spew this garbage in organizations and online. They can only hide so long and patriots are patient.

Will not comply. period. Congress can F*** off

hang every tax funded traitor.

Anybody else’s sick of this rigged game & childish non-sense awe the People are being subjected to ? Magna Carta, US Constitution, Bill of Rights were already hammered out. This time is no different same group doing it again just a different time on a twistor-logical timeline.

Highly recommended video to view.

As for Wasserman Schultz’s
Democrats are as confounded and disbelieving as ever by her penchant for making puzzling and stubborn political missteps. Debbie has been rebranded by the Democrats’ disastrous & destructive” to the party. Just another democratic congress women that can not be trusted now or in the past.

Madge Simpson AKA Wasserman Schultz is a Communist. She is one step up the biological chain from a worm.

I don’t think the American Govt is prepared for a second civil war that is coming because of the 2A rights given to us from God to defend us against the tyrants in charge…the days ahead will be very interesting and made turn bloody

The 2nd prohibits any and all from infringing. The feds have zero legal authority over our ownership, possession, carrying, building or purchasing firearms.

Green Mtn. Boy

If anyone hasn’t yet figured it out, the Leftists of either party has but one goal when it comes to the 2 nd. amendment, to negate it to a degree it means nothing, that or it’s repeal.
The founders warned us of such scoundrels.

Wass

The late Associate Justice, John Paul Stevens, is on record: “The Second Amendment was a mistake”. Never forget, this is the inspiration for much, if not all, of anti-gun activism.

It’s AMAZING…… that the fools in Congress today, think they are some how smarter than the Founding Fathers. Most are professional Congress critters, that have NEVER done a hard day’s work in their ƒ Ú ¢ Ꝃ ẹ n lives.
