“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” — Rahm Emanuel
Dianne Feinstein’s Assault Weapons ban may not be faring so well in the Senate, but that doesn’t mean Democrats have given up on exploiting the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook to push their extreme anti-gun agenda.
Via the Washington Times.
Senate Democrats said Thursday they will take up gun control immediately after a two-week Easter vacation, and said the bill they’ll bring to the chamber floor will include universal background checks for all firearms sales and a crackdown on gun trafficking and straw purchases.
The background checks are the biggest sticking point – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he will include a strict measure written by Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, rather than wait for a bipartisan compromise to emerge.
…The White House has vowed to rally support for the assault weapons ban, which would limit sales of military-style semiautomatic weapons, and for the magazine ban, which would limit capacity to 10 rounds.
Flanked by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and families of the victims of the December shooting rampage in Connecticut, Vice President Joseph R. Biden said Thursday the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School deserve a vote.
…Currently, all sales by licensed firearms dealers must go through background checks, but transactions between private individuals do not. Lawmakers are looking for a way to extend checks to almost all transactions without also creating a record-keeping system that gun rights supporters fear could turn into a gun registry.
The Democrats can’t acheive their real goal, which is the confiscation of all firearms in the United States, because the American people are against them. So, they’re taking the biggest step they can at the moment: universal background checks that would make it possible for the government to create a national gun registry. Then, they’ll be hoping for another crisis that will give them an excuse to use the new gun registry to confiscate handguns.
Democrats like Jan Schakowsky have even admitted that’s part of the ultimate agenda.
Shame on Democrats for aiding murderers, robbers, rapists and the next Adam Lanza by trying to insure that law abiding Americans are unarmed and unable to defend themselves.
