Another senator warns of gun confiscation

A ban on assault weapons will lead to “gun confiscation,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, today warned the Senate Judiciary Committee reviewing S. 150, the proposed “Assault Weapons Ban.”

With his opening statement, Grassley said that despite banning “assault weapons,” mass shootings will continue and “criminals will continue to circumvent” the law.

He predicted that after these current measures prove ineffective, “then we will continue to debate whether gun registration is needed and it will lead to gun confiscation.”

The senator reminded the committee that criminals do not comply with existing background check laws and this type of legislation would punish lawful gun owners, rather than preventing crime.

    It is NOT about preventing shootings , it is ALL about disarming the American citizenry , amd NOTHING else .

    • 7papa7

      You are absolutely right. In order for Obama to complete his agenda to become dictator, we the people need to be disarmed so it will be much more difficult to fight back.

      • Uzi Kattan

        Theydon’t care about our safety, they only care about disarming us so they can better control us. The Obamuslim’s terrorist friend Bill Ayers talked about re-education camps (concentration camps) where they want to get rid of 25 million loyal Americans and they can’y do that if we have guns.

        • 7papa7

          You are right. Remember Mr. Marxist started his political career in the living room of his terrorist buddy Bill Ayers. When you look at his friends list anyone can see obama is trouble. Friends like Farrakhan, Flager, Ayers, Wright, Resko and the list goes on and on with criminals and anti American scum.

            “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.” – Adolf Hitler 1933

            “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.” – Adolf Hitler 1935

    • ride2live

      Grassley? Just the other day, he was the only Republican on the Senate committee to vote yes on S. 443: The Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms Act. Look that vaguely written little gem up, and tell me again about Grassley’s “backbone”.

    • leviguy1947

      Just because he trumpets the truth publically does not mean how he will vote or what he whispers to other politicians. He is a career wash politician whose track record says he will make deals that are contrary to his promises. Not a good guy.

    Nice comment Senator, but speaking Truth to Stupidity isn’t going to accomplish anything. Perhaps outlawing armed Congress persons and their bodyguards/security details, as well as the President’s, when one or more of the aforementioned become victims of CRIMINAL related gun-violence, then maybe they’ll get it why the areas of least legislative intervention are also far, far more free of gun crimes.
    It seems that CRIMINALS know that they are in for a tough go of it if they start trying to commit their crimes against an armed victim. Been proven to be true over and over again. It’s trite, but it’s correct to say: When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. (Except for the privileged for whom it seems none of the legislation applies. Which is why I, and most law-abiding citizens, will not even consider registering/surrendering OUR protection until LONG AFTER our Legislators surrender theirs- and their bodyguards/security details.)

    • Black Rain

      Pizzed Off, that would be a great place to start. Let see, gun free zone at state capital building, Gun free zone at the White House. These state that want to restrict gun ownership or reduce ammo clips size should lead by example. Chicago and Washington, DC would be a great place to start. Thanks for the idea.

        I won’t be, but those wh try and confiscitate my weapons or high capasity clip will be, I live by the constitution and I will ignore any infringment on my rights to keep and bear arms,

      • jag57

        Good point. I remember, I was in our County Sheriff’s office, in the mid nineties and there was a guy there at least a couple decades younger than I am; he told me that if he woke up one morning as a felon, due to Nazi gun laws being passed, instead of having a gun in only one hand, he would have one in both hands, since it really wouldn’t make any difference.

    • jag57

      Do you think there are any of these people that don’t know that gun free zones cause massacres?
      For this to be true, they would have had to live in an isolated cave all their lives and not be exposed to history. Not likely, more likely it’s about power and control, since it’s not about guns, it’s about control and agenda, which isn’t compatible with an armed citizenry, but remember the British wanted to disarm our forefathers, and look what happened.

      This goes also for that WENCH from Jacksonville that wants everyone to have ANGER MANAGEMENT training so that the BIG CENTRALIZED GOV/MIL complex can decide who does or does not have a gun. oh wait i am so sorry i typed in caps it must mean something freudian. VOTE ALL THE BASTARDS OUT!

    Of course with this many states will simply say no to the liberals. And then link up with others of the same mind. This could very well result in a civil war. Of course you would have those that provide the food to the northeast on one side (the south, midwest etc) and the non productive states under marxist rule on the other. Guess who wins.

    It is uplifting to see that perhap’s finally some of our Representatives and Senator’s are starting to see the truth behind Gun Control. Now we need to apply even more individual pressure on our elected official’s both in our state houses and the house and senate in Washington. We need them to stand up and say NO to any New Gun laws and start dismantling the existing Infringement’s on our Right’s that have lead us to this ‘Point of no Return’. since 1922 we have been ever so slowly lead down this path to socialism and Control. As he stated Criminal’s do not obey the law. We the People are at the point of total non-compliance with what is being done to our Right’s that Washington and our State legislatures have no Right to INFRINGE.

      Stop and think about it, they are trying to repeal God, since all of our rights are preexisting, and come from God, we are born with them. Our God given rights, including our right to own the firearms of our choice, are enshrined in our Bill of Rights, to our Constitution.

      Glad to be off the left/right reservation/plantation paradigm.
      It’s not about left/right it’s about up or down. The vast majority of the politicians are bought and paid for by operatives of the new world order.
      Unelected bureaucrats in three letter agencies of the fed are writing laws for We THE PEOPLE!
      I digress, point is it’s all just become theatre to keep the people divided while behind the scenes they are laughing at us.

    Guns have your back covered, obama sure don’t look at what he allowed to happen in Benghazi when those brave men ask for protection and were denied.

    With guns, we are citizens, without guns, we are subjects. That’s what obama and the demoncrats want us defenseless so they can cram more than a disastrous bill down our unwilling throats like obama health care bill piece of crap.

    Stick to your guns like glue and never trust the government who tries to control you.

  • GrumpyOldMan

    It isn’t about “gun” control. It’s about control period. What happened to the practice of swearing an oath to the U.S. Constitution when these intellect deficiency people go to Washington? Have none of them ever learned what the word “infringed” means?????

    • Hawkeye3939

      As for swearing an oath to “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC,” it turns out that BHO swore an oath against himself because he’s the biggest domestic enemy of the Constitution. Could also be the biggest foreign enemy, but since the lying jerk won’t show his birth certificate, all we can do is guess.

  • Deplorable Ralphwylie

    Good for Grassley for telling the truth, but Batshit Crazy Dianne Feinstein is the one that needs an education. She has made California one of the most restricted gun law states in the Union and now she wants it to go nationwide.

    People who have fear because of what they are inside hate the thought of guns that kill! Their conscience would terminate all the guns in the world–but its the hate of the perpertrator that kills. What will it be after guns? Knives?, hammers?, ball bats? who knows! Things that need no bullets are cheaper to produce!

Please read the following by Constitutional Scholar Publius Huldah and then write your congressional rep and forward the link to them and ask that they read the commentary before passing any legislation that violates our Constitutional Rights…..that is a crime.
    http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/03/all-federal-gun-laws-are-unconstitutional/

    they only way they will get our guns is by force. The Militia Act of 1903 automatically made ALL males between the age of 18 to45 as a member of an ‘official militia’. That law still stands and prevents the ‘legal repeal’ of the 2nd Amendment. Molon Labe

    Fact: None of the gun control proposed measures would have stopped any of the recent mass shootings. NONE. The only thing the gun grabbers want is to take all guns away from Americans.

  • busyboots

    I wish the Democrat Senator’s brains worked as good as Senator Grassley….

  • jag57

    It’s pretty clear what Senator Grassley is talking about, as I don’t believe there is a snowball’s chance in hell that he believes law abiding citizens are going to register their guns, which would leave only criminals, in and out of government, armed. Since i can’t recall a single incident where there there was gun registration, that wasn’t followed by gun confiscation, which, in a lot of cases, since in the 20th century alone, there was 170 million people exterminated by their government, I can’t think of a single reason why anyone would think it couldn’t happen here. Some may ask why I’m saying this, my answer would be, because at age 76, I can say this isn’t the same world I grew up in. When I was growing up, kids took their rifles to school to refinish the stocks, if the schools had a shop, which mine didn’t. We also carried them in racks in pickup trucks, and we also had pocket knives in our pockets, and I can’t recall anyone being shot or knifed by some drug crazed student. There wasn’t any gun free zones at that time.

    We have allowed our government to go from the most powerful, and wealthiest nation in the history of the world, to the biggest debtor nation in the history of the world. We are becoming a 3rd world nation, and an increasing rate of speed. What is really sad, is that there are many of our citizens that don’t have a clue about this.

  • Wells Sommer

    What gives Madam Feinstien, Schumer, Husein Obama, Leakey Leahey, Reid etc, etc, the authority to tell “We the people” what kind, type, size, etc, “Arms” we can or cannot have when they took an “Oath” to protect and defend? They’re committing TREASON – Tyranny! Our 1st Amendment we have a constitutional right to peaceably assemble but also “to petition the government for a redress of grievances!” Time “we the people” peacefully held court and try them for treason!
