Convicted Felons for Gun Control
Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat, advocated a ban on all semiautomatic firearms along with a prohibitive gun owner registration fee. Blagojevich also promoted a ban on so-called "pocket rockets," or easily concealable high-caliber handguns. With regard to the latter, many states' concealed carry laws require the firearm to remain exactly that: concealed. Even if it is not illegal to expose or "flash" the weapon, it is generally poor judgment to advertise the fact that you have a weapon. When one deals with liars like the Violence Policy Center and criminals like Blagojevich, however, one should never expect truth, honesty, or common sense to come into play.
Mario Biaggi (NY) said that only police officers should have firearms. He had to surrender two firearms when he was convicted on felony corruption charges.
Bobby Rush (IL) is, like Andrew Cuomo and Client 9, an advocate of malicious and frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers. He also supports closing the so-called gun show loophole. Bobby Rush is also a convicted criminal because of his involvement with the Black Panthers. Rush referred to police officers as "pigs," whose murder his organization incited with language like "Off the pigs."
The bottom line is that the anti-Second Amendment movement is not only represented by, but is usually led by the dregs of society: common criminals who betray positions of trust, or even worse.

The left wants to take guns away from honest, law-abiding citizens and leave them in the hands of violent criminals.
There was a rapist leading an antigun march in Ohio or something. lol.
Imagine a much larger part of the population disarmed because of minor neuroses at some time in each of their lives (including a large number of veterans) and joining the push for gun control. That item in gun control bills in the states and Congress should probably get more scrutiny.
I thought this was gonna be about those NFL has-beens that are shooting their mouths off about gun control.
