Washington Post: "Democratic Candidates Vowed To Toughen Restrictions On Gun Owners"

By William Teach

Democrats and their enablers/supporters/defenders in the media constantly tell us that they do not want to restrict lawful gun owner's Rights, they just want to stop shootings and keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Here's a big Kinsley gaffe
After years of hesitation, Democrats rally around calls for gun control
The Democratic presidential candidates have thrust gun control forward as a dominant issue for the national election, signaling a sea change in the politics of a controversial subject that recent Democratic nominees have often avoided.
After years of deadly mass shootings across the country, and with President Obama voicing deep frustration with inaction by Republicans in Congress, the Democratic candidates led by Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed in a debate here Tuesday night to toughen restrictions on gun owners and gun manufacturers.
Right there is the truth of the matter: Democrats want to toughen control on all gun owners, something we've known for years, but never ends up in print. Virtually every piece of legislation Democrats push and every talking point that passes their lips is about restricting the law abiding gun owners, rather than going after the criminals. How has gun control worked in Democratic Party cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Camden, and Chicago, among others?

Bans on "assault weapons", which are simply scary (well, scary to the gun grabbers) looking weapons that tend to fire lower powered bullets and are lighter than non-scary looking weapons with wood stocks primarily affects those who want to purchase legally for recreation, hunting (not that many), and home defense. Guess who gets hurt the most? Women, for whom the lighter weight makes them ideal.
But Brian Walsh, a GOP consultant and former spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said that Clinton will almost certainly tone down her talk on gun control if she makes it to the general election.
“I don’t expect the same rhetoric from Clinton next fall,” Walsh said. “Is she going to go into eastern Ohio and talk to blue-collar Democrats and others in the same exact way on guns? Unlikely.”
Most likely true. Right now Democrats are throwing red meat to their far left base. When the general election time comes, though, their words will surely show up in opposition ads.

It is nice to know exactly what they really want to do, though, wouldn't you say? Crossed at Pirate's Cove. Follow me on Twitter @WilliamTeach.

I'm tired of the "gun control debate". We have laws against all the things that she is trying to propose. There is nothing she can do that will not be ignored. We only follow Constitutional law here in the sunny South.

It seems the author failed to mention that the mass shootings invarably occurred on "gun free" zones; churches, schools, universities, a military base and movie theaters. The Democrats don't get it. I hear that California Governor Jerry Brown just signed a bill which prohibits guns in schools. The Left continues to oppose armed school personnel, armed police officers and keeps crowing for more gun control. They lost the House and Senate after they passed the 1993 "Assault Weapon" ban, but they still don't learn. There seems to be no wide-spread public opinion in favor of more gun laws, but that doesn't matter to them either. The leftist mind is puerile and incapable of perceiving reality. The leftist agenda, which includes gun control (total ban on gun ownership, really) is all important and and dominates leftist thinking. Facts don't matter and logic doesn't matter to an liberal/leftist. Incredible! You can't explain to a liberal that gun control doesn't disarm criminals and that such laws have more affect on the law-abiding . The liberal mentality seems akin to the NAZI one. There must always be a scapegoat. In 1933 Hitler's thugs Burned the Reichstag building and blamed the Jews and Communists. Then all of Society's ills were blamed on the Jews. In the America of 2015 it's gun owners, the NRA and the Republicans. In MEIN KAMPF, Adolf Hitler says, "All effective propaganda must be aimed at the emotions and to a very small degree at the so-called intellect". Also, he says effective propaganda must avoid a many-sided approach and must make repeated use of slogans to put across a point. Of propaganda he says, "The whole art consists in doing this so skillfully that everyone will be convinced that the fact is real, the process necessary, the necessity correct, etc". Must I expound more upon the typical modus operandi of the anti gun movement?

II see leftism destroy this country bit by bit. Our Constitutional rights are going down the toilet of Socialism/Leftism. Nikita Khruschev once said, "We (the Communists) won't have to fire a shot. You will wake up one morning and realize you already have Communism!" Gun control is based on a lie, that by regulating gun owners criminals will be deprived of access to a firearm. What it's really about is a total ban on gun ownership. No leftist will ever tel you that, though.

Liberal politicians propose more gun laws, all designed to remove guns from law abiding people. These proposed laws would not affect mass shootings or the crime rate, by liberal's own admission. The goal is a society without guns, except in the hands of police, politicians, the regulatory agencies (they already have their own armed sections), and the protective forces around politicians.

The aim is to disarm the populace. Politicians act as if there is a danger of an armed uprising which would particularly threaten the current political order. Current government control is usually wrongheaded and wasteful, but it hasn't sparked armed rebellion.

Liberal politicians act as if that rebellion will come. What dreams and plans do they have which are making them afraid for their future, if the peole are armed?

Could it be the liberal slogan, already applied in the socialist countries Russia, China, Cuba, and Venezuela, among others, that the utopian socialist omelette requires breaking a few (million) eggs? But, this is possible only if the eggs to be broken are not armed.

2. We aren’t Registering Diddly Squat with you people.

Never mind that history has shown the sequence to be registration, Confiscation, annihilation..

Never mind that you have already admitted that is just an incremental but necessary step to confiscation.

And never mind that you think you’ve fooled people into believing your Bull cookies about “Gun Safety”

No, the Good lord has granted us the natural right of self defense and you aren’t taking that away under ANY circumstances…

If you doubt our resolve on this point, may I to refer you to the socialist red state of New York and other environs who have steadfastly refused your Stalinist dictates.

No, we don’t need your Permission to defend ourselves – We already have that, thank you very much.

Did you miss the memo from well nigh over 200 years ago from the people about the consent of the governed? [And I’m talking the citizens of the US, not the golden horde of imposters you’ve been willfully bringing in over the border to tip the balance and destroy the nation]

So you can stuff your tyrannical dreams of registration where the sun don’t shine, It’s not happening.

3. And we for dang sure aren’t going to let you confiscate our means of defense from a tyrannical government. But that should be obvious to you by now.

So go ahead and knock yourself out passing all manner of new laws and regulations, or new supreme court case that trample on the very documents you swore to protect.

You people have very capably demonstrated the art of ignoring the rule of law, and if you can do it – SO CAN WE THE PEOPLE!
