Schakowsky (D-IL): Assault Weapons Ban is Just the Beginning

LINK

quote:

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), a member of the Democratic Party’s leadership in the House of Representatives, suggested to Jason Mattera at a Feb. 13 women’s rights rally that plans for an assault weapons ban and private-sales background checks were only the beginning of a broader gun control agenda extending to handguns as well.


quote:

Schakowsky evidently did not recognize Mattera, a conservative video journalist and senior investigative reporter for Talk Radio Network, who infamously confronted Vice President Joe Biden in the Capitol. (Mattera introduced himself to Schakowsky by name but did not indicate that he was filming or that he is conservative.) She spoke to Mattera as if he were a fellow gun control enthusiast--and Mattera played along, eliciting answers about Schakowsky’s enthusiasm for gun control. “We want everything on the table,” Schakowsky told Mattera. “This is a moment of opportunity. There’s no question about it.”
One poignant exchange was as follows:

quote:

Schakowsky: We’re on a roll now, and I think we’ve got to take the--you know, we’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.

Mattera: So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?

Schakowsky: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun... something [Violence]. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.


In another exchange, Schakowsky proposed allowances for states and municipalities to ban guns--though such laws have been repeatedly rejected by the Supreme Court:

quote:

Mattera: We’ll never get a handgun ban with the Second Amendment as stated.

Schakowsky: I don’t know. I don’t know that we can’t. And there may be an allowance, once again, for communities--I have communities in my district that prohibited handguns within their borders. The rights of municipalities and states to view that as a sensible way to keep people safe--I don’t think it’s precluded.



When Mattera asked why legislators were not pressing for a handgun ban, given that most murders are committed with handguns, Schakowsky replied: “Because we’re not going to be able to win that. Not now.” She went on to explain why background checks were a useful interim policy, arguing that they would “address any kind of weapon.”

re: Schakowsky (D-IL): Assault Weapons Ban is Just the Beginning
and this is why most gun owners are against ANY new regulations. Reason given for the need of universal background checks, to save a kid and keep guns from criminals; Side effect of background checks, the Feds now have a list of all gun owners...

If I were the sole witness to her being gunned down, I would turn a blind eye. Same goes for the rest of that group of radical lefties.

Can't we just sell Illinois to Mexico? Or give to China to secure the debt?

Do we need any more proof that women's rights activists really care much more about progressing liberal ideology than actually securing women's rights.

What in the world makes a man and a woman more equal than a gun? This "women's rights" activist is actually trying to take away a woman's right to defend herself.

You forgot the obligatory roll eyes, laugh and smirk, and then quote, 'do you really believe the govt is going to confiscate your guns?'

Followed up with the obnoxious guffaw and the 'look guys, he's a prepper'

And this is why I am against all forms of compromise when it comes to legislation relating to guns.
