They have no moral high ground ~ treat them like the filthy scum they really are.
She left out the gubmint’s authority for imposing this on a free people under the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Under what authority, DiFi??
This woman is a despicable hypocrite. Is she going to give up all her personal security measures? Hardly!
Just an aside, be careful Freepers. There will be trolls making comments on gun control stories. They will pretend to be pro-gun, but their intent is to incite real Freepers to say or do something that could be construed to be a threat. Libs are always looking for ways to accuse conservatives of being violent crazies.
And how would these provisions have stopped the Connecticut school shootings? This is the government registration of firearms that Constitutionalists have long feared.
We’ll have to pass it to find out what’s really in it.
Seems like Lanza made an “illegal transfer” when he murdered his mom and stole her guns.
He’s REALLY in trouble now.
The liberals consider the deaths of these kids as an opportunity.Meanwhile they send their kids to private school with armed guards.
