With all the drama in Washington these days, the Democrats seem to have delusions of being over the target of what the American people really want. From their perspective, since they were either returned to Congress or installed there, the other side of the aisle has decided to make an all-out push for their agenda to be set in stone.
Along those lines, Democrat Senator Tammy Duckworth from Illinois where the state flagship city has the nation’s tightest firearms restrictions, and the highest murder rate all at the same time, has said that she will push for an “assault weapons” ban so that her young daughters won’t grow up in danger of being shot by someone wielding one.
I don’t want my daughters to have to grow up in a country that won’t protect them from firearm violence.
People are dying and Congress has a duty to act.
My colleagues and I introduced a ban on assault weapons.
Enough is enough.

The fallacy with this argument is that criminals who yield guns have no respect or use for the law, and all that’s going to happen with a legal ban is the black market in such products is going to explode.
That little factoid is conveniently ignored by the people who just want to do away with weapons and turn Americans into sitting ducks more than we already are.
The American people out on the fruited plain know that, and let Duckworth have it in the comments at Breitbart:

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY… BE SURE TO READ THIS…
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control: From 1929 to
1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control: From 1915 to 1917, 1.5
million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
Germany established gun control in 1938: From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935: From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964: From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970: From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956: From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.
You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
WE ARENT GOING TO BE EXTERMINATED BY OUR CORRUPT GOVERNMENT!!

Assault weapons are involved in .10% of homicides in the United States. Over 80 percent of all homicides are committed by males between the ages of 15 to 29 from one ethnic group. Sounds like Senator Duckworth is barking up the wrong tree.

Logic and common sense have nothing to do with their agenda to enslave the American People. The only thing these tyrants understand is force. And they’re going to provoke a response that they’re too stupid to comprehend. A cornered enemy is the most dangerous. When someone is fighting for their home and family there’s nothing they won’t do to protect those things from a tyrant.
“Come and take it”.
This is nothing but another step towards ultimate goal.
