Would-be handgun bannerís criminal family ties explain a lot
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 15 March, 2013 | David Codrea

“When interviewed by video journalist Jason Mattera, U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky … left no doubt that she and her ideological allies are working hard to pour a little more oil on that slope, and crank up the incline a few more degrees,” St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner Kurt Hofmann wrote, exposing the fraud of gungrabbers who ridicule warnings of a “slippery slope.”

“We’re on a roll now,” Schakowsky claimed. “We’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.”

When asked if the “assault weapon” ban was just the beginning, Schakowsky replied “Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun... something …Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.”

“I don’t know that we can’t,” Schakowsky replied when the Second Amendment was raised as a hurdle to a handgun ban. “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.”

What should also be a hurdle is the fact that Schakowsky is married to convicted felon Robert Creamer, who “pleaded guilty to defrauding banks out of 2.3 million dollars in a check-kiting scheme along with violations of federal tax laws.” That would make him a person prohibited by law from owning a handgun, an “assault weapon” or any kind of gun at all.

Every liberal socialist gun grabber who is pushing for firearm confiscation is breaking the law and are criminals since any firearm confiscation scheme would violate the constitution of the United States of America.

I will not hesitate to use deadly force to protect my family from these socialist nut cases and bed-wetters!

They will learn a very important lesson about teasing a lion with a stick, (gun grabbing) because they are going to get the $hit kicked out of them!!!

What we’re dealing with are criminals who are perverting the “law” to disarm the rest of us. So of course they don’t trust us, with guns or with anything else. It’s a projection thing.

Because they know from the bottom of their corrupt souls that they can’t be trusted.

Some people try to build themselves up; some people would rather tear everyone else down.

Criminal element can make a lot of money trafficking guns once they are outlawed. Connect the dots...

I think being married to a felon should prohibit someone from holding elected public office. Police officers are prohibited from consorting with known felons; let’s apply the same standards to lawmakers!

The lead gun-banner in CO also has a criminal background.

Shocking, I know! /s

That sort of troop massing is effective against small arms, but hopelessly vulnerable to Molotov cocktails, amonia+bleech/baking soda vapors, gasoline pits, etc.

Which is to say that the tactics being trained are effective only for peacetime operations, not urban war.

Red Jan is at it again. Hope she remembered to pay her monthly dues to the CPUSA.

Or does she pay it quarterly? Mayne I'll give the Commies' Chicago office a call and see how it works.

Yep. And also to a shotgun blast to the upper legs (Thighs) which would blow away the Femoral Arteries and ... well ... kill them ... within a minute. The BP drop is almost instantaneous. Or so I hear :-)

Not that I would do that, just sayin'. As I'm a peaceable person and don't even own a shotgun.

'Body Armor' is good and protects vital organs, but it won't stop you from getting killed.
