As a committee hearing on new gun-control legislation began winding down Thursday, three state senators started chatting amongst themselves.

What they didn't realize was the microphone was still on.

A recording of the exchange which appears to be between Democrats Loretta Weinberg, Sandra Cunningham and Linda Greenstein ended up on YouTube, and gun supporters said today they were upset by the remarks.

What’s a “gun supporter?” Is that like a holster? Maybe a sling?

Seriously, why are journalists allowed to use these terms? Guns are tools. You don’t hear people out there saying, “I use a scissor to cut my lawn. I’m not a lawnmower supporter!”

Why does there have to be a national model? It’s as if they’re not satisfied until their subjugation is pervasive across the several states.

Ms. Weinberg and Greenstein should study their gun control history more closely.

The recording opens with what sounds like a senator or staff member saying, “We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate” — although it is not clear who is speaking or if this is what she is saying.

“They want to keep the guns out of the hands of the bad guys, but they don’t have any regulations to do it,” Weinberg then says, more audibly.

One of the senators, who sounds like Cunningham, responds: “They don’t care about the bad guys. All they want to do is have their little guns and do whatever they want with them.”

“That’s the line they’ve developed,” another, who sounds like Greenstein, says.

Indeed. There's good chance the victim in your pic was named Something-berg or Something-stein.

The death camp reference is spot on and the history comment is, too. I say that because in the correct historical context both Greenstein and Weinberg would have been properly called “Kapos”.

They have studied history. They want to be the ones pulling the triggers.

Sen. Weinberg doesn’t need a trigger to pull when she already has a face that will kill you to look at and then with another look it will make your cadaver run away.

Google her if you dare.
