Knowing What to Ban has Never Been a Requirement for Gun-Grabbers


Most who received this letter don'tknow enough to call “B.S.” (Seen at Firearms Policy Coalition Facebook page.)
U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “It is clear that we must crack down on deadly, military-style assault rifles, which is why I voted to pass Senate Bill 1657, which holds gun dealers accountable by ensuring dangerous criminals and those with a history of mental illness or domestic violence cannot get their hands on a weapon,” Illinois State Representative Fred Crespo claimed in a letter to constituents. “I also support House Bill 1469, which would prohibit the sale and possession of high capacity magazines which turn regular firearms into fully automatic weapons” [emphasis in original].

First, gun dealers in Illinois don’t sell anything without controls mandated by the feds and the state, and “prohibited persons” are called that for a reason. If citizen disarmament edicts really meant such people “cannot get their hands on a weapon,” we’d expect to see results vastly different from reality, not that the political trough-feeders don’t use still unacceptable reductions as an excuse to brag about what a bang-up job they’re doing.

Second, really? Magazines can convert a gun to full-auto? This is one of the guys responsible for crafting “commonsense gun laws”?

At first I had to make sure the letter wasn’t a put-on, because I doubt The Onion could do a better job at parodying gun-grabber cluelessness. Sure enough, gun owners were giving Rep. Crespo a well-deserved shellacking on his Twitter feed, and he actually doubled down on stupid over at his Facebook page.

“A recent statement from my office incorrectly described two gun safety bills. I appreciate this error being pointed out because I would never want to misinform my constituents. I had intended to inform them of my work with Republicans and Democrats to pass House Bill 1467, which bans bump stocks and other modifications used to make semi-automatic weapons operate like fully automatic machine guns, and my support for House Bill 1469, which prohibits the sale and possession of high capacity magazine clips like those used in the murder of Chicago Police Commander Paul Bauer. I’ll continue working to keep weapons of war out of our community, and striving to provide the people I represent with the latest developments from our Capitol.”

Crespo blames his “office.” What a weasel. So much for “the buck stops here…”

He insists he “would never want to misinform my constituents,” adding new corroboration to the truism that for “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day.

He evidently is above the magazine vs. clip controversy, but what the hell—he wants to ban them all, because “weapons of war” should evidently only be in the hands of the “Only Ones” who have proven trustworthy enough to keep and bear them.

Who could disagree with that? Aside from the Founders…?

The shameful level of subject matter ignorance is hardly new.

“This right here has ability with a 30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second,” California State Senator Kevin de Leόn blathered at a press conference to a fawning media that didn‘t know enough to question his claims. “Thirty-magazine clip in half a second.”

Then there's New Mexico gubernatorial candidate Michelle Lujan Grisham, who called for a ban on “high magazine cartridges.” And it gets better (worse).

“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available,” Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette claimed as justification to ban magazines. Her spokesflack, trying to do damage control, doubled down on the ignorance:

“She simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism.”

And who can forget New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, who thought the barrel shroud she wanted to ban was “the shoulder thing that goes up”? Or New York State Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington, who maintained .50 BMG rifles needed to be banned because:

“Some of these bullets have an incendiary device on the tip of it, which is a heat-seeking device, so you don’t shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do, you could cook it at the same time.”

That any of these authoritarian control freaks consider themselves qualified to weigh in on anything having to do with firearms is nothing short of political malpractice. But the true shame, as has been pointed out throughout the years, is owned by a constituency allowing a real-life version of “Idiocracy” to become inevitable.

Perhaps anyone dumb and dependent enough to vote for Fred Crespo and other gun-grabbing frauds is too stupid and irresponsible to own a gun. That's just the kind of voter they’re counting on…

The degree of their utter ignorance is equal to the degree of their utter incompetence to even attempt researching a base level of firearm knowledge for the laws they pen.

I have to blame our education system for such a tragedy to our nation. We have generations of truly ignorant incompetent fools who are clueless of being one click away of a zombie.

And the farmer hauled another load away. Break out the hip boots boys, it's getting deep.

The one thing you must possess in order to have a "common sense" talk about ANYTHING is...common sense! Something the gun grabbing libtards are truly lacking!

That is just plain scary.
How do these people pass through an education system without learning the hard won lessons and reasons for the Constitution and its various Amendments? And then, they claim to bare allegiance to the country!
What don't they understand about the term "We, the People"?

They do not believe in the Constitution because it prevents dictators from imposing their will upon the masses (After disarming them of course). These far left Libertards are nothing more than modern-day communists and their goal is to brainwash everyone into submission. In order to do that they must institute a program of brainwashing from a very early age (hence the liberal agenda in our education system) and suppress freedom of speech. The idea is to create a submissive following that will not question their motives (Just like a cult).

Yes, I do of course understand.

A perfectly good reason to hold onto the 2A at any cost, even if it means rising up and invoking that Amendment, for the very reason that the founding fathers envisaged. Such foresight/forethought!

Blame for these so called Representatives also has to be placed on the people that elected them. Anyone with even half a clue would know that their degree of ignorance is also partnered with sheer stupidity. Yet people keep re-electing these idiots. :stupid:

These progressive politicians do not care if they get the gun stuff right. None of that really matters.
THEY. DO. NOT. CARE.

What matters is that they SEEM to care about babies, children, defenseless protected classes of people, etc., and that the evil people (you and me) who do not care about babies, children and defenseless protected classes of people have to obey the progressive politicians in all things. THAT is what matters. Only control matters, guns are just the current area they want more control.

And they are counting on the fact that those who blindly follow them won’t even notice that the same progressive politicians who want to destroy liberty for the sake of “children” have worked hard to legally slaughter millions of (unborn) children in the name of “women’s rights” or my favorite “women’s health care.”

They are lost people looking for sheeple to follow them.
They are not Lost, they know exactly what they are doing, that's the problem. They have been pushing for open borders and amnesty for illegals so they can vote for their Communist Party Traitors. They learned a long time ago that WE will not vote for their candidates. The DACA people and other foreigners are totally ungrateful for being allowed in OUR country, no thanks to the Traitor Obama. Anyone that has seen the video on youtube of the DACA people shouting down Senile Nancy Pelosi demanding AMNESTY AND Citizenship NOW for the millions that came into our country by hook or by crook knows that to be true. So who does Pelosi champion next? MS13 criminals. Pathetic.

Rouge states like California and Maryland have allowed illegals to vote. Take a wild guess how they voted. Allowing illegals to vote is as legal as printing your own currency. This CANNOT be allowed to continue.

President Lincoln threw people in Washington DC in JAIL when they publicly backed the rebellion in the southern states. In hindsight, the southern states were correct about trying to get out of the disunion, slavery not withstanding. However, conservatives and politicians have allowed this to go on too long, in order to get re-elected. It can only get worse if the Federal government does not step on the heads of those traitors. Enough already. :hmmmm:

Yes! Every time one of these liberals wants to make a point against their opponents, what do they say? "This is not what America is all about". They don't have a clue what America really is all about.
