In today's combined edition of "Nobody wants to take your guns" and

"These people are friggin' idiots", I give you the following:
Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.C.) joined other Democrats to call for the reinstatement of the federal assault weapons ban, arguing that the Second Amendment only applies to muskets.

“This is something as a non-lawyer that I have had trouble with from the very beginning. When the framers of our Constitution considered the Second Amendment, they were talking about muskets,” Coleman said during a news conference outside of the Capitol Building on Tuesday.

There are so many gun laws we need to impose that would protect our communities more and more and more and eliminating assault weapons is definitely at the very top, as well as limiting who can get ammunition and whether or not you can buy it online. It’s something I have supported and I sponsored,” Coleman added.
Not only would I bet she's never heard of the Pennsylvania Rifle, or the Girandoni, or the Puckle gun, or a whole raft of other things, she'd say either that they shouldn't be allowed either, or "They don't count."

But wait!  There's MORE!
PJM asked Grijalva if a federal assault weapons ban should be extended to police departments.

“No, well, that’s kind of like a ‘did you stop beating your wife question.’ I’m not going to bite,” he replied.
(translation: "The cop unions would have fits if I answered that honestly, so I won't.")
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) said she had not talked to law enforcement personnel to see if there are any “occasions or riot situations” where they might need an assault weapon.
(Anyone taking bets that this idiot can't actually DEFINE what she means by 'assault weapon' other than "Evil firearms that scare me"?)
“That has not been an issue. I don’t know. The kind of police violence — police misconduct has not really been an issue of assault weapons. I don’t know if it ought to be extended. The only use of assault weapons is to shoot as many people as possible in the shortest period of time,” she said. “I haven’t really thought of the role of police in that.”
Hey, Officers, guess what?  She doesn't like you, and doesn't like the idea of you having a patrol rifle, just doesn't have the guts to say it outright right now.

The Democrat Party: wanting to disarm EVERYONE(except the ones they need to control everyone else).

So, if the purpose of assault weapons is to shoot as many people as possible, and only police should have assault weapons, she doesn't see any reason why The People should fear the police?

I see a train pulling into the station. People loaded into cattle-cars are directed into the showers.

A policeman armed with an Assault Weapon approaches to announce:
"Leave your clothes, carefully folded, in the dressing room. Put your valuables on top of your clothes. Don't worry, nobody is going to steal from you. Oh, and are you Jewish?"

No Jerry, They won't care that you are Jewish. Only that you are a person who MIGHT resist the communist utopia. Congress wants an unarmed people so that they may invoke an Emperor. A PERMANT "leader". 'Cause all those pesky "right wingers" don ya know. Armed citizens get the crazy idea that they somehow have RIGHTS, and can resist their humane extermination.---Ray
