Sometimes, liberals who enjoy hearing their own voices, let the truth slip out.

Obama claims to be a “constitutional scholar” but his understanding of the 2nd Amendment shows this is another lie. The 2nd Amendment has absolutely nothing to do with hunting and doesn’t only apply to hunters.
President Obama reiterated his determination Monday to see Congress act to reduce gun violence.
“The only way that we’re going to be able to do everything that needs to be done is with the cooperation of Congress,” he said at the start of a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and law enforcement officials from the Major Cities Chiefs Association and the Major County Sheriffs Association.
“That means passing serious laws that restrict the access and availability of assault weapons and magazine clips that aren’t necessary for hunters and sportsmen, those responsible gun owners who are out there. It means that we are serious about universal background checks, it means that we take seriously issues of mental health and school safety,” he said.
I wish someone would ask this idiot what an “assault weapon” is and how any of these restrictions will stop criminals.
Why is the Department of Homeland Defense Looking to Buy 7,000 Weapons with Select-Fire Capabilities for “Personal Defense Use in Close Quarters?”

“Assault weapons” for thee but not for American citizens. This is just another story documenting the upcoming dictatorship America is going to face. Politicians are stealing our money and they are pushing for gun control because once the sheep figure out what’s been going on, there will be an American Spring. It’s much easier to
kill control the unarmed masses with automatic weapons.
For those of you with no law enforcement or military experience, a rifle with “select-fire” capabilities is what those in the DHS are requiring. The weapon can go from being a semiautomatic (1-bullet fired per trigger squeeze) to fully automatic (lots of bullets with 1-trigger squeeze). Why would DHS need these weapons for ICE to conduct close quarter combat?
The United States Department of Homeland Security has stated a rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO (compatible with .223) with a magazine capacity of 30 rounds is “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters…”
Well smack me up-side the head. First, a hat tip to Breitbart’s Awr Hawkins who pointed us to a posted General Services Administration (GSA) business opportunity solicitation posted and updated last summer. Basically, the site posts a request for proposal (RFP) for personal defense weapons for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
This RFP is not for the traditional armed forces. This solicitation is specific to law enforcement who almost exclusively work within and along the borders of the United States. Certainly the threats ICE officers may be subject to are the same exact threats law-abiding residents could be subject to.
Section C of solicitation number HSCEMS-12-R-00011 is pretty specific. Here is a direct link to the Section C PDF(246KB). My emphasis in bold. Notice the term assault weapon or assault rifle is not used anywhere in the document.
The scope of this contract is to provide a total of up to 7,000 5.56x45mm North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) personal defense weapons (PDW) throughout the life of this contract to numerous Department of Homeland Security components. …
In paragraph 3.1 under requirements and testing standards we read…
DHS and its components have a requirement for a 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters and/or when maximum concealment is required.
Isn’t that inconvenient for the gun control politicians? In requirement paragraph 3.9.10, they find a need for a 30-round magazine.
The action shall be capable of accepting all standard NATO STANAG 20 and 30 round M16 magazines (NSN 1005-00-921-5004) and Magpul 30 round PMAG (NSN 1005-01-576-5159). The magazine well shall be designed to allow easy insertion of a magazine.
In paragraph 3.21.2, they again specify the requirement for a 30-round magazine.
The magazine shall have a capacity to hold thirty (30) 5.56x45mm NATO rounds.
[...]If you did not catch the interesting part in one of the quoted sentences above, let me point it out to you. The personal defense weapon should be select-fire capable.
DHS and its components have a requirement for a 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters…
The action shall be select-fire (capable of semi-automatic and automatic fire).
From the Fire Control Section, paragraph 3.10.1.
The fire control selector shall have three positions; safe, semi-automatic, and automatic. The selector shall have positions which are clearly labeled for the mode of fire.

So New York Democrats, along with Gov. Mario Cuomo (D), wanted to confiscate guns, magazines and clips but were to chickenshit to let it out to the public. Gun-grabbing liberals are ashamed to let the public know their real agenda.
Here it is. This is the video where I was asked to keep the Democrat proposals for the NY SAFE Act away from the public. This list was given to me by a colleague and it is not confidential.
This bill was an attack on the 2nd amendment and the Democrats clearly wanted to dismantle the work of the Founding Fathers. None of these amendments were included in the final bill thanks to us fighting back. I will not stand silent while these unpatriotic proposals are pathetically thrown at us a 11 o’clock at night:
1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
2. Confiscation o ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons
When will liberal idiots realize that criminals won’t obey any of their gun-grabbing laws? Liberals don’t care because they’re not attacking criminals. They’re attacking law-abiding citizens and punishing them instead of punishing the criminals.
H/T to The Mental Recession
Democrats want to ban guns simply because they’re scary looking and because they know an unarmed society is easier to enslave.
From Washington Examiner:
A Richmond-area lawmaker brandished an AK-47 on the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates on Thursday in a wild stunt aimed at rallying support for tougher gun laws.
Del. Joe Morrissey, D-Highland Springs, pulled the weapon out shortly after the day’s session got underway, a time when legislators typically welcome school groups and other visitors in the chamber’s gallery.
Morrissey assured his colleagues the gun was not loaded and pointed it toward the ceiling as he pleaded for Republican House Speaker Bill Howell to help push through a subcommittee the assault weapons ban that Morrissey is proposing.
There is no such thing as an assault weapon. It’s a liberal created term used to confuse and scare idiots. The AK-47, sold in America, only shoots one bullet like every other semiautomatic weapon. It looks scary and this scares idiots.
“A lot of people don’t know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law,” Morrissey said. “Even though the law right now says you can’t bring this gun into a high school or elementary or middle school, there is nothing from keeping you from walking in front of [an elementary school with a gun].”
Wonder if this idiot is licensed to carry? Did he go through the FBI background check? I’m going to guess he isn’t and if he isn’t he should be the first idiot tried by the Obama administration.
