Surprise: Dozens Of Congressional Dems Involved In Ant-Gun Sit In Own Firearms

One has to wonder, if these same Democrats involved in the toddler-ocracy were suddenly placed on one of the secretive lists with virtually no way to get off via Due Process, would they turn in their firearms? Would they have a similar fit if they were disarmed? Would they mad if they were being stalked and were denied the purchase of a firearm? And, since they all think that guns are evil and lead to more shootings, will they say whether they have given up their own weapons?

(Heat Street) Congressional Democrats ended their 25-hour sit-in on the House floor this afternoon, failing to force a vote on two pieces of gun legislation. The controversial sit-in included 26 Democratic lawmakers who themselves own guns, Heat Street learned after examining 2013 USA Today data on congressional firearms ownership. The participants also included 12 more Democrats in Congress who either didn’t respond to USA Today’s gun survey or declined to say whether or not they possessed a firearm.

Granted, that was a survey from 2013, and things can certainly have changed for the ownership since then. But, it’s doubtful.

You also have to know that many of the Democrats who refused to answer probably own a firearm. And others who surely lied about not owning a firearm. That’s what Democrats do. Not all, of course, because even some Republicans noted that it was none of anyone’s “damned business”. There were a few that were proud, such as Joe Manchin, who stated in the USA Today article “Why would anybody not own a gun?”

Among those who participated and complained include Keith Ellison, Mike Thompson, and John Carney. You also had whining from Dem Senators, such as Harry Reid, Sheldon Whitehouse, and Tammy Baldwin. All gun owners.

Interestingly, Congress Critters are allowed to carry in their offices, but, the weapons must be unloaded and secured for the corridors. Furthermore, CCs are not subject to the laws of Washington, D.C. They can act as if they are in their home state.

Meanwhile, this is supposedly just the start of the guerrilla actions for the Dems in attempting to violate multiple Amendments in the Bill of Rights. And other things

(Politico) Already rank-and-file Democrats, energized by nationwide publicity and praise they received for occupying the House floor over demands for a gun vote, are saying they’ll likely use the same strategy again.

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), for example, thinks a sit-in demonstration could force Republican leadership’s hands on what she called “economic justice issues,” like the minimum wage. And Rep. Maxine Waters of California said at the end of the protest Thursday that she would be ready to seize the House floor again over the gun matter when lawmakers return from their July 4 recess.

“It’s a new day in Washington; it’s a new way to fight,” said Democratic Caucus Vice Chairman Joe Crowley on the House floor in the wee hours of Thursday morning. The New York lawmaker elaborated in an interview on the House steps a few hours later: “The American people want and expect the House to do something, and they’re not just going to take silence anymore. We’re going to get in the way until we see action.”
