Gun-Grabbin Gabby Giffords Wants to Take Away Your… Muskets?
Left now want to confiscate Black Powder firearms; muzzle loaders--cap and ball and flintlocks!
The following article appeared on
Wizbang on November 19th
Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords
just gave us more proof that the left’s real goal with “gun control” is nothing
short of a total elimination of the Second Amendment and a ban on all guns.
One of the first things that liberals
insist when discussing “common sense gun control” is that they only want to
make America safe, not put an end to the Second Amendment. They piously
proclaim themselves to be stewards of the Constitution and insist that they
don’t want to take your guns away from you.
Gun-Grabber Giffords had a Navy Vessel named after her!
Then there is their other claim,
which the Second Amendment was written in an era where there are only
muzzleloading muskets, so perhaps only muzzleloading guns are covered by the
law of the land.
But they are liars. And Giffords just
Giffords’ gun banning organization
recently issued a report on guns wherein they
insist that muzzleloaders are dangerous guns that need to be banned. In the
report, Giffords calls on Congress to update federal gun laws to put an end to
guns that could be turned into “military guns.”
Among the evil guns the group want
eliminated are shotguns and, you guessed it, antique black powder muzzleloading
guns. Muzzleloaders, Giffords claims, are dangerous because they are excluded
from the National Firearm Act. They then accuse the firearm manufacturing
industry of somehow “exploiting” that exemption… whatever that is supposed to
"Common Sense" Gun Control
“These laws prohibit convicted felons
and other dangerous people from possessing guns, require gun retailers to be
licensed, and require licensed retailers to conduct background checks on
purchasers,” the report says. “There is one blanket exception to these laws,
however: the exception for antique firearms, including muzzleloaders. The gun
industry is determined to exploit this exception.”
Of course, “exploit” is a nice
conspiratorial word to use, there, but it is empty of meaning. There is no
“exploiting” going on. Some small numbers of black powder guns made in the
style of the ancient, single-shot weapons are made for history reenactors and
sportsmen, but no one is “exploiting” anything.
If you don’t know what a muzzleloader
is, they are single-shot guns that take up to nine steps or more to load each
time they are fired. While they can kill just like any other gun, they are
hardly the sort of scary military guns that can be misused by criminals and
mass shooters. They are also not the kind of weapon you’d see being used by
street gangs in drive-by shootings.
Further, these guns have been
completely outmoded for 150 years.
No, what we have here is proof that
these anti-gun liberals don’t want “common sense” anything. They want to ban
all guns, even guns that have been completely obsolete for 150 years.
