The left has called for gun confiscation over 75 times – Beto version 2019
Dec. 2, 2019

Posted on 12/02/2019 7:59:56 AM PST by Hustoon71

Destroying the lie from the national socialist left that ‘no one is talking about gun confiscation’.

Joy Behar, Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rouke and Representative Eric ‘nukem’ Swawell (D-CA) epitomise the mendacity of the left in demanding gun confiscation while denying that they are demanding gun confiscation. Like many others of the national socialist left, they want to push for their final solution to the liberty problem while still pretending to be ‘liberal’, using all manner of soft sounding synonyms for the taking of the people’s property.

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) loves to talk on this subject, but according to him, anyone else talking about it is ‘fear mongering’. Just because he and his fellow leftists are demanding gun confiscation, does not mean he and his fellow leftists are demanding gun confiscation.

This of course doesn’t even touch on the obvious aspect of unconstitutional gun confiscation with so-called ‘red flag’ laws. Their existence alone proves the point that the liberty grabber left obsesses over using any means necessary to disarm their political enemies.

Just the major players in the gun confiscation demand genre.

This is our annual accounting of the over 75 instances of the liberty grabber leftists demanding gun confiscation, eviscerating the lie that they aren’t demanding gun confiscation. Everyone should note that the national socialist left is nothing if not creative in creating euphemisms to disguise their obvious ultimate goal. Using nonsensical terms such as ‘mandatory buy back’ in a thinly veiled attempt at pretending it’s not really confiscation.

It’s an accounting from most of the major outlets of the national socialist media as well as the leadership of the authoritarian socialist left [but we repeat ourselves]. There are a vast number of more examples from the minor characters of the movement, such as this one from ‘Alison Aires’, but for the sake of brevity we kept the criteria for inclusion high to make the list manageable. It proves the point none the less.

Why do leftists lie about their obvious ultimate goal of gun confiscation?

If there is one thing we’re learned from extensively researching this ‘genre’, it’s that leftists love to lie about their obvious goal. They will scream ‘do something’ even though this won’t do anything to solve the problem they created in the first place while it is plain as day that these are mere stepping-stones to confiscation.

There are several reasons why they lie about what is patently obvious, but the primary cause destroys their entire argument for liberty control. They of course want to fool people into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won’t lead to gun confiscation, only to go back on that promise and confiscate them anyway, as was the case in the UK. But that isn’t the main reason for parroting an obvious falsehood.

The primary reason the left maintains the ‘no one is coming for your guns’ lie.

There is an exemplary quote that is a succinct reason why the left lies about their obvious end goal of gun confiscation in the video from of the reference article: Must watch: ‘I carry a gun’.

“I carry a gun because there are only two types of creatures on this planet predators and prey. no one watches a cheetah chase down a gazelle and deny that the gazelle has the right to use its horns to protect itself.

But there are people who would deny that same right of self-defense to other human beings. Such people seem to think that the way to stop the cheetah is to cut the horns off the gazelle. That somehow if you make it easier for the predator the predator will simply go away. It doesn't work that way if you make it easier for the predator you get more predators.” [Emphasis added]

That is clearly the objective of the liberty grabber left.

Pointing out this will see the inevitable use of this obvious lie, but the left has no other choice. Employing the ‘no one is talking about gun confiscation’ let’s them red herring their way out of this critical aspect of the debate. That is why we have spent countless hours compiling this list. It set’s the debate of the unalienable human right of self-defence in it’s proper context. Were the liberty grabber leftists to get their way, far more people would die by being rendered defenceless.

Registration IS confiscation.

One final note, it’s already been proven that imposing a requirement of governmental permission to keep an unalienable human right is akin to the actual seizing of firearms. Virtual gun confiscation with registration or licensing demands means that firearms are now under the control of the government. With the only difference from real gun confiscation being where the firearms are stored.

All of these references from almost every major media outlet of the national socialist left as well as it’s leadership, proves that this is their obvious goal and they aren’t just talking about it.

Beto O'Rourke: 'Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47'

It’s not just Beto O’Rourke – the rest of the left has revealed their ultimate goal.

This is very important in that it changes the talk on the 2 Amendment from a common sense chain of steps to the real argument. Which is why the Commies are condemning Beto for bringing it up.

Beto O'Rourke just did Republicans a massive favor on guns

There is nothing more classy than a politician who threatens to nuke the country because it doesn’t want to give up their guns.

The guns they want to seize are those held legally by honest, law-abiding NON-VIOLENT citizens who respect others’ rights and use guns for legitimate purposes.

The guns they don’t plan on seizing are those held illegally by crooked VIOLENT criminals who use guns to rape, steal, and kill.

IF they took guns from criminals, they wouldn’t have a crisis on their hands to take advantage of.

Never let a crisis go to waste...

Also, the lawbreakers shoot back.

There was a time starting in 1962, when they “ONLY wanted to register handguns! Rifles will not be affected!”

1981..Actress Lee Grant, yelling and poking holes in the air with her finger, on Good Morning America...”THE NRA IS A RIFLE ORGANIZATION! THEY SHOULD GIVE UP THEIR HANDGUNS AND THEY CAN KEEP THEIR RIFLES!”

1976, they put their plans for gun control on paper...

Nelson T. ‘Pete’ Shields
Founder of Handgun Control, Inc.

“I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily — given the political realities — going to be very modest.

Of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved.’ And it’s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time.

So then we’ll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal — total control of handguns in the United States — is going to take time.

My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition — except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors — TOTALLY ILLEGAL.”

-Pete Shields, Chairman and founder, Handgun Control Inc., “A Reporter At Large: Handguns,” The New Yorker, July 26, 1976, 57-58

“Yes, I’m for an outright ban [on handguns].”

-Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., 60 Minutes interview

HCI (now the Brady Center), around 1984, made a grab for the rifles, and missed. But now gun owners know that we are always up against a stacked deck. NEVER GIVE AN INCH!

That’s the thing - they don’t care about the criminals, only those who would stop them from taking over.

That is one of their tactics - divide and conquer. Pit one group against another in the false hope that their guns won’t be confiscated.

The past has shown that never works, when they come for one type of gun, they eventually come for all types of guns.

You’re welcome - please pass this along to fellow patriots.

We all need to know what we’re up against, they won’t be satisfied with just a few laws here and there. They want all of our guns, and they will do anything to get them.
