Chuck Schumer told one giant lie that just doomed the Democrats to defeat

Chuck Schumer is walking on eggshells.

That’s because the top Senate Democrat is in full damage control mode after another top Democrat put the party between a rock and a hard place.

And Chuck Schumer told this giant lie that just doomed the Democrats to defeat.

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke tried to salvage his failing Presidential campaign by turning his candidacy into a single issue crusade to confiscate millions of firearms in America.

To that end O’Rourke thundered that “hell yes” Democrats were going to confiscate Americans’ so-called “assault weapons.”

For years Democrats claimed they only wanted “common sense” gun control and that no one was coming for Americans’ guns.

Schumer knows the Democrats needed to flip Senate seats in pro-gun states like Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, and North Carolina if they have any hope of winning back the Senate so he flailed about trying to put out this fire.

But in doing so, Schumer told one massive whopper: he said he didn’t know a single Democrat who agreed with O’Rourke.

The Daily Caller reports:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that he didn’t know of any Democrats who support the mandatory gun buybacks proposed by Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke.

Justin Murphy, of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle in New York, asked Schumer to comment on the subject — specifically regarding President Donald Trump’s complaints that O’Rourke’s extreme position has forced an impasse with Democrats who might otherwise work with Republicans on gun control.

“Asked about @realDonaldTrump blaming @BetoORourke’s gun removal comments for making it harder to pass gun control, @SenSchumer says: ‘I don’t know of any other Democrat who agrees with Beto O’Rourke, but it’s no excuse not to go forward,’” Murphy tweeted.

That is a lie.

Several top Democrat Presidential contenders like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Corey Booker all support some form of gun confiscation.

    • Maxx says:

      “Vote fraud” which also keeps all the rino’s like McConnell and the GOP Elitists in office. If one carefully studies the last 4 elections when McConnell was running you will see that justa few weeks before the elction he was many points behind. But miraculously he wins by the number he was behind. This is most commonly because the opposing party tells it’s members to “cross-over” and vote for the rino. This is due to the fact that a Rino is better to have in your pocket that one of your own. With a Rino they get a lot more “inside information” to use against the GOP. Paul Ryan decided not to run because he was being openly called out by conservative voter from Wisconsin. He knew his days in Congress were numbered.

  5. Donald Duck says:

    Will it’s people like you that promote hate and murder with your constant fear of gun controll all you do is give support to the very same people such as corparte america that only wishes to controll and oppress you, if you could only hear yourself you’d see how stupid you sound. Ignorance of facts is your agenda not mine.

  6. Bill says:

    It is bad enough when old Chuck stares at us over those stupid looking glasses he wears like he is lecturing a misbehaving child, but when he lies to us it is too much to bear. I wouldn’t trust him any farther than I could throw an ass, the symbol of his party.

  9. Breaker 19 says:

    I live where almost everyone is a gun owner. Not only that but they know how to use them. Most of them have hunted about all their lives.
    I have never heard of someone breaking into a home when the owner is there.
    If you take their guns, and someone wants to rob or kill someone, how far would they have to go? Just to the first house they come to. They would know the people would have no way to defend themselves.
    They are no going to go into a home where the homeowner may be inside with a gun and blow their head off. They are not very smart, but they are not that stupid.
    If you believe turning in your guns will make you and your family safer, turn them in. Put up a sign in your front yard.”this is a no gun zone”. See how long it takes before you are calling 911 for someone with a gun to come and protect you.

  10. Bender says:

    Guessing Fox didn’t tell you looks like your cult leader tried bribing a foreign country (Ukraine) to come up with dirt on his political opponent. That’s not normal. How can you defend dictator like behaviour do you put party before country?

    • Will Triebel says:

      Were you there personally to hear the call? I doubt it. And repeating conjecture from your Dem propagandists proves what, exactly, aside from you being gullible and ignorant?
      I don’t watch Fox news myself, but calling CNN or MSDNC ‘news’ channels is like calling Hitler a freedom-loving Democrat, of which both died long ago.

      • Donald Duck says:

        Will you have absolutely no room to talk your supreme leader has lied over 13000 times and yet your blind to this, and a world wide poll conducted by Fox News has 7 billion people all saying the same thing, in America we now have the proff of the rebirth of Hitler his name is THE ORANGE ORANGUTAN MONSTER.
        Because it’s a Fox Poll we know it’s true.

        • Ken Marx says:

          The president lied over 13,000 times? And you know this how? And I’m so glad little old Fox News had the resources to conduct a poll of 7 billion people, about the entire population of the earth. Wow, you sure know a lot. How’d you get to be so well informed?

    • Steve Scoutaris says:

      It doesn’t matter if that’s true or not. Hillary did the same thing with the dirty dossier. Any politician would do it. There isn’t a politician in existence that wouldn’t look at dirt on their opponent, (no matter where it came from), if given the chance. And to be perfectly honest, there is no law against it.
      Rigging an election is a different matter. That’s called “voter fraud”.

      • Brady says:

        But HR C or any other reject will ever be jailed, for during worse then what the Gen did, because it would show that about 2/3 of the elected have so much dirt in their back ground, that we would have to release most of the convicted to make room.

    • Heidi says:

      Like Hillary and the DNC???? When they get charged and jailed come talk to me about right and wrong. Until then the facts are Hillary and DNC did. This other thing is just fake news because Dems have nothing and love story telling.

    • Gary J Miller says:

      Bender, guess you aren’t intelligent enough to follow a story until it’s conclusion. The Truth of the Accusation you are quoting has been PROVEN to be FALSE, once again showing that you and your lying Party leaders will go to any extent to “Slander” President Trump. Just slither back under your rock and STFU.

      If your talking about Biden He already did that and more how about collusion, blackmailing the Ukraine government by threatening to deny them their billions in aid from us, having an innocent inspector fired and have the investigation into his sons criminal actions stopped and giving the Ukraine’s 6 hour to comply or loose their aid. AND HE ADMITTED IT ON TV. Talk about the ugly American, some reputation, if you dont comply we will bully you.
      And tell me what do you find reprehensible about the President trying to right the wrong that was done to the Ukraines loss of reputation and their people who think less of their police and the government for crumbling in face of loosing their billions in appropriated aid.

  11. Bender says:

    If guns make us safer this should be the safest country in the world. You don’t care if people come into school with an assault rifle but you claim to be pro life. Where do you live that your in constant fear and can’t leave without a gun?

    • Steve Scoutaris says:

      If we had armed security in schools like we have at baseball games and football games and music concerts then people wouldn’t be able to walk in with “assault rifles” and shoot the place up.
      Why is it the democrat politicians and Hollywood celebrities that all live in their gated communities with their armed security are the ones that want to disarm people?

      • Bender says:

        More guns is the answer again? How stupid. If people can’t get assault rifles they can’t shoot the place up. How well did Parkland security guy protect those kids?

        • Steve Scoutaris says:

          If people can’t get “assault rifles” there’s lots of other options. You have heard of handguns haven’t you? You do know that handguns are involved in far more violence than semi-automatic rifles? Look at Chicago for example. Why are people like you focused on one kind of gun that’s involved in a fraction of homicides? You never answered the first question either. You just started name calling.

          • Bender says:

            Yes but can you kill 70 kids in a minute with a hand gun? I don’t live in a gated community or have armed guards. But trained guards that can pass background checks is better than giving every radicalized white Christians an assault rifle to take out perceived enemies.

          • june Burgess says:

            Steve, because if they can take away 1 type of gun this year then next year it will be another and so on until we have no 2nd amendment rights

        • Steve Scoutaris says:

          Bender, why are you focused on semi-automatic rifles and ignore semi-automatic handguns that are statistically involved in far more homicides? Look at the shooting in Chicago for example. Notice how I didn’t start name calling like you did?

        • Gary J Miller says:

          Bender, again you show your ignorance! Read the following and educate yourself.
          What is an Assault Rifle?
          Now, that’s a smart question. An assault rifle is a rifle that:
          has selectable firing modes
          can fire in fully automatic mode
          Select fire means that there is a switch to toggle between firing modes. One firing mode is called “semiautomatic”. Semiautomatic means that when the trigger is pulled, the following happens:

          A bullet is fired
          The spent bullet casing is ejected from the firearm
          The next bullet round is loaded into the firing chamber
          That’s it. One trigger pull = one bullet fired. That’s semiautomatic. That is how most handguns work, how many rifles work and even how some shotguns work. Pull the trigger and one bullet comes out. Just one and only one. A firearm that fires one bullet at a time and loads the next round into the chamber is called a “semiautomatic” firearm. Semiautomatic rifles are NOT assault rifles.

          Now, there is another firing mode that is called “fully automatic”. In the case of full auto firearms, when the trigger is pulled and held down, the firearm will shoot continuously until the trigger is released or until the gun runs out of ammunition. A fully automatic firearm is often referred to as a “machine gun”. Machine guns can be described as assault rifles.

          Third: Machine Guns are NOT Readily Available to the Public
          Once again, just because the news guy said it was a machine gun, it doesn’t mean he is right. Despite what most people have been led to believe, you can’t walk into any gun store and buy a machine gun. Don’t believe me? Try it. In order for a civilian to legally own a machine gun (aka – a REAL assault rifle), they have to obtain expensive permits and other documentation as well as pass federal, state and local screening processes. The vast majority of gun owners and NRA members do NOT own machine guns. The narrative spewed by the mainstream media and the liberal left saying otherwise is completely FALSE.

          • Will Penny says:

            Gary J Miller , thank you for trying to show the liberals , how a fully automatic , to a Single shot firearm operates , now if they get it , that’s the Question , you did your best !!

    • Will Triebel says:

      Bender, if gun laws and gun free zones make us safer, why are most shootings done in the states with the strictest gun laws and gun free zones?
      Fact is, states that allow law abiding citizens to carry, especially concealed, have far lower violent crime rates.

      • Steve Scoutaris says:

        Bender doesn’t like answering tough questions. He prefers to just slither away and start something somewhere else.

        • Donald Duck says:

          Steve no bender loves tough guestions it just sounds to me he doesn’t respond to completly idiotic statements try to say something true or relavent I’m sure you’d get an answer, that is if your capable of cognitive thinking.😎

          • Steve Scoutaris says:

            Actually if you were paying attention you’d see Bender answered all of our questions. You’re late to the game.

      • Bender says:

        Because 20 minutes from downtown Chicago your in Indiana where anyone can get a gun.

        • Steve Scoutaris says:

          Yes Bender you can in fact kill 70 kids with a handgun. These people are not using 70 round clips, and you can swap out a clip just as fast with a pistol. Some pistols carry 18 rounds.
          And Bender, Will had a great question which you dodged. Why is it the gun free zone are where the shooting occur? Schools are gun free zones.

          • Bender says:

            You think the kids should have guns? Raise the age to 60 to have an assault rifle everyone should be mature enough to handle one by then. There can you get behind that you can keep yours then

          • Donald Duck says:

            Steve texas is open carry not one of you so called good guys anywhere in site at wal-mart or did you run the other way like the cowards you are.

            My response along with bender is a sensible educated honest reply to your constant DIATRIBE of nonsense.
            When your party starts the attack you’ll be in bed dead with your little pea shooter under your pillow.
            SLEEP TIGHT DON’T LET THE BED BUGS BITE . ☠👻💀🕵️‍♀️👳‍♂️💤💥

        • Bender says:

          I’m against assault rifles they have no purpose but to kill people. If you can pass background check I don’t care if you conceal and carry. Handguns are fine for protecting your home. If a kid gets a hold of it because it was stored Improperly or if it gets stolen and used in crime however owner should be held responsible. I’m not against guns or hunting. I’m against everyone having a gun. I value children more than the rights of abusers and disturbed people getting guns.

          • Steve Scoutaris says:

            Bender, the purpose of all guns is to kill people – not just semi-automatic rifles.
            Gangs use handguns all day long in Chicago to kill people, and 99.999% of rifles are never used to kill anyone. I don’t own any guns but if someone wants to own a rifle or a handgun I don’t care because it’s their constitutional right to do so.
            And I’m also glad more people are carrying guns around because it makes us all safer. Enough said.

          • Steve Scoutaris says:

            No Bender the kids shouldn’t have guns. Notice how I didn’t call you STUPID for saying something like that. Some of the teachers should be armed and there should be armed security in every school. And Florida just passed a bill allowing teacher to be armed.

          • Walter E Beverly III says:

            Wrong! First of all can you eve define what an assault rifle is? Just for your edification what you are calling and “assault rifle” is not an assault rifle at all. AR-s are used to HUNT PREDATORS such as coyotes, feral pigs (aka wild boar), etc.
            Now see if you can come up with the CORRECT definition of an “assault rifle”.

          • Gary J Miller says:

            Bender, read the information I sent you. You say that you are Not against guns, but you are against “anyone having Assault Rifles” as the information I sent you clearly stated, anyone CANNOT purchase or acquire an Assault Rifle. It has been banned and illegal for over 50 years. There is Extreme Federal, State, and Law Enforcement background checks, and mental stability tests that are required to even apply for a permit to purchase an Assault Rifle. An AR15 is NOT an Assault Rifle, the AR stands for the manufacturer-Armolite. Not Assault Rifle!

          • Jimmie Chesser says:

            There wouldn’t be so many massed shootings if the DEMOCRAPS would Stop missing Americans off all the Damn time that’s my sorry and I am sticking to it

        • Will Triebel says:

          And if it’s the guns coming from Indiana that are the problem, why does Indiana not have a similar high homicide rate?

          • Steve Scoutaris says:

            And 20 minutes over the southern border you can get even more guns.
            Trying to ban guns is a stupid unconstitutional exercise in futility.
            We banned alcohol, how did that work out?
            We banned cannabis, how did that work out?
            Heroin? Cocaine? Are you freaking kidding?

          • Will Triebel says:

            Exactly, Steve. And I think these idiots actually understand that, yet attempt to use ridicule and lies, per Alynsky, to hide their true intentions, to disarm their perceived ‘enemies’, or ‘target race, as Hitler put it, ‘white’ people, conservatives, and especially Christians.
            Kind of a reversed version of the third reich.

      • Donald Duck says:

        Will once again you have no room to talk states with the lowest gun laws such as texas have the highest amount of gun violence fact is too many retardicans running loose on the streets with guns, not one ever used in self defence just to murder non whites true fact.

        • june says:

          you must really be a duck, totally wrong in your “theory” as the facts are, that the more gun controlled democrat cities are the ones with the highest crime rates.

    • Donald Duck says:

      Bender in the south and texas where racism runs rampant

      • Will Triebel says:

        Donald, your ignorance and lack of self awareness is astounding. Your “woke” culture is all about promoting racism rationalized as some ignorant idea of “social justice”. And don’t give me the BS about not being able to be racist unless you are white skinned, as that idea in itself is nothing but racist and ignorant. Racism is the same, no matter what race it comes from.
        BTW, I live in Austin, and I guess we just haven’t attained your idea of “wokeness” yet, since people of different races, primarily, still get along, notwithstanding your bigoted lies.

        • Donald Duck says:

          Will it’s people like you that promote hate and murder with your constant fear of gun controll all you do is give support to the very same people such as corparte america that only wishes to controll and oppress you, if you could only hear yourself you’d see how stupid you sound. Ignorance of facts is your agenda not mine.

          • Will Triebel says:

            You should try listening to yourself, parroting your Nazi propaganda and only left biased “facts”. Actual unbiased facts show the exact opposite, the highest homicide rates are on the leftist west and northeast coasts, and uber-liberal cities like Chicago, where only the gangs and criminals are allowed to have guns. However, I suppose you would have to have the ability to have a thought that’s not spoon-fed to you by your fascist, racist, bigoted Dems to understand actual facts, so your lack of understanding reality is rather apparent.

      • Steve Scoutaris says:

        Democrats are the true racists. They were the plantation owners in the south. Democrats were the KKK members. Democrats claim black people are too stupid to get voter IDs, and democrats think blacks can’t survive without government handouts. Democrats don’t give a damn about all the black people getting killed in their cities. Democrats use blacks and Latinos as pawns.
        The democrat party IS the party of racism in this country. Always has been since the beginning.

        • Donald Duck says:

          Steve seeing how you think you know it all how come the south controlled by retardicans at this very time because you have fully imbraced the racism that excicts there when the dems abandoned the south retardicans raced in another true fact retardicans are all about white supremacy white power white rule your scared sh##less your becoming a minority your eagerly taking up arms to anialate the percieved threat it’s just pathetic you can’t seem to live with out a gun the truth is god never gave you a gun to play with you feel so unmanly you need a gun to feel like a man poor little impident boy’s

          • Will Triebel says:

            Now that is amusing, quacker. Is the land , rather then people, being racist like guns loading themselves and shooting people, or planes taking it upon themselves to crash into buildings? Admit it, the racists moved north, and the great ‘changing of the parties’ that so many of you morons try to claim is nothing but a myth. Democrats have always been the racist party, and still are. The fact that they are losing it over their vote slaves getting decent jobs and leaving the plantation proves it.
            And speaking of a lack of manhood, soy boy, exactly how is it the Republicans’ fault that you are a weak minded, extremely gullible beta male?
            You think it’s funny to run down the south? You would be too much of a coward to last a day down here, those inanimate objects you are so frightened by are everywhere.

        • Will Triebel says:

          Steve, it is the way they treat minorities, women, gays, etc. that dare to disagree with them that shows the fascists’ true colors. Can’t reason with them, though, all they know is deny and project. ‘Always blame the other side for that which you are guilty,’ as Goebbels once stated, is their obfuscation agenda.

  14. Robert Ratto says:

    For those who are informed. At the time of Franklin D. Roosevelt, there was a party called the Progressive Party. That was the communist party. These last 2 election there are a lot of democrats who are proudly standing up and saying they are progressives. If you took the time to study you would see the present day democrats are following the exact same guidelines and programs of the Nazi party. It is all there to see and read.A blind man could see all the lies and deceptions of the left. Yes they do want to disarm you because is the only way they take total control.

    • Will Triebel says:

      Exactly. Get the guns and they believe their armed Pantiefa brownshirts could go on the march, along with their like-minded Muslim partners, to terrorize everyone into submission.

  15. When all the law abiding citizens lose their guns, democrats and crooks will have guns so they can prey on the rest of us. We are surrounded by demo wolves, why in hell would we want to lose our only source of protection. The cops have no obligation to protect us. Other citizens have no obligation to protect us. We must depend on ourselves for our own protection. Of course the dead need no protection…but we are very much alive!

    • Bender says:

      And you think you stand a chance against the US government? Give the troops some credit if they get orders to take your guns I’ll bet on US troops all day long.

      • Will Triebel says:

        Ludicrous, at best. How many lefties and Pantifa brownshirts are in the military? Most who join are, in fact, conservative patriots that sign up to defend their country. It is delusional to think that they would follow orders from some fraudulent Communist leader to fire on their own citizens.

        • Donald Duck says:

          Will that is exactly the problem you think your government cares all the bad crap going on today and in the past was your government you name it every thing is from the biggest corupt mafia in the world.

          • Will Triebel says:

            And did I say anything about the government? Sure as hell none of them fighting for their country. I am referring to those soldiers that signed up to do so, most patriots that would turn on that government rather that murder their own civilians. What is your problem understanding simple facts?

      • Steve Scoutaris says:

        Yeah I find it very difficult to believe our police and military would start shooting their own family and other U.S. citizens over some arbitrary democrat gun confiscation law. They had a mandatory buyback in Australia back in the 90s and only a fraction of the guns were handed over. And that was the end of it. There’s something like 400 million guns in this country. There’s no way the government could pull that off, IMO. There would be rioting and civil war.

      • Will Penny says:

        See Bender , you just said the magic words , let the government take your guns with armed troops , you dumbass , you are a damn fool , read between the lines Bender , better yet just jump off a cliff ledge , the government isn’t taking no guns today and as a matter of fact , are any other day , you communist moron !!

        There really are no Trump followers, and there is no Trump cult.
        The simple fact is that Trump (with all of his flaws) is the lesser of two evils, and Trump is doing a pretty good job following through on his campaign promises.
        The alternative is a clown car of democrats promising FREE this and FREE that, with open borders for icing on top.

How can they continue to feed you media and press lies and left wing propaganda if your armed? You might want to give up your life to protect the republic from openly lunatic madness. I do not own a weapon, used them in the army, but I joined NRA the day the San Francisco declared the NRA a terrorist organization. I want to men and women armed, I do not fear guns as much as I fear our corrupt democratic controlled House of Representative communist. I will stand with you to ensure if you legally own a weapon you keep it unless you harm or threaten, you have the right to protect your family and ensure Communism or the new world order does not take over the republic. Even people who have no guns want you and others to have them.

      • Pamela says:

        Moe, you are absolutely correct, My husband is a legal, registered gun owner and has had the NYS background check for years. What about all the people that own UNREGISTERED GUNS or black market guns. They will never be able to rid of all guns because there are a lot of people with stolen guns which will always be the issue. They will always be out there with their stolen guns killing citizens and robbing people of their personal properties. What the hell are these DEMORATS thinking? We live by the law just like many other legal gun owners. It is our constitutional right and we have always lived by the laws of the land.

    Vasu baby……. Your litany of statistics is totally incorrect in some cases, and marginally so in others. Even if you were spot on with your assertions, the fault lies with those who do not know how to properly and safely handle firearms, and have been derelict in their responsibilities to teach their children and others in the same. Provide proper instruction, and you dramatically reduce instances of accidental incidents. As for suicide or homicide, that is a conscious choice made by those who would be extremely unlikely to be influenced by any form of restraints on their actions outside of incarceration or institutionalization. Put the insane into asylums, and put the criminals in prison, and that issue is also dramatically affected. You are obviously ignorant of several factors, and you make presumptions about them and a number of other subjects about which you postulate. There is no mention of congress or any other entity in the second amendment, and for you to suggest otherwise is a testament to your ignorance on the subject.

  34. Vasu Murti says:

    Gun violence IS a sanctity-of-life issue!

    A gun in one’s home is 22 times more likely to be used to kill or injure in a criminal assault or homicide, an attempted or completed suicide, or unintentional shooting than to kill or injure in self-defense. (Kellermann, et al, 1998 Journal of Trauma, 42:263-67)

    In the U.S., 8 children and teenagers are killed, and more than 47 are injured, by a firearm every day. (CDC, NCHS, December 2006)

    The risk of homicide in the home is three times greater in households with guns. (Kellermann, et al, New England Journal of Medicine, 1993)

    The risk of suicide is five times greater in households with guns. (Kellermann et al, New England Journal of Medicine, 1992)

    A 1990 law banning the sale of “Saturday Night Special” handguns in Maryland was associated with reduced use of these guns by criminals, and a 9% lower rate of firearm homicides in the state between 1990-1998 than would have been expected had there been no law.

    Policies that deny handgun purchases to individuals with prior misdemeanor or felony convictions are associated with a decreased risk of subsequent convictions. Misdemeanants who had allowed to purchase handguns prior to the passage of a California state law prohibiting such purchases had a rate of criminal offending 29% higher than that among misdemeanants who were denied handgun purchases after the law took effect.

    Every day in the U.S., 8 children and teenagers are killed and more than 47 are injured by a firearm.

    In 2005, 595 California children and youth under age 21 were killed with firearms and 1,554 California children and youth under 21 were hospitalized with nonfatal firerarms injuries.

    One-third of U.S. children live in homes with firearms. Almost half of homes with children and firearms keep a gun unlocked.

    68% of the attackers in school shootings obtained the gun(s) from their own home or that of a relative. 61% of the attackers used handguns.

    Many young children, including children as young as three years old, are strong enough to fire a handgun.

    In 2004, guns were used to kill:

    5 people in New Zealand
    37 in Sweden
    56 in Australia
    73 in England and Wales
    184 in Canada

    and 11,344 in the United States. God bless America.

    Gun control advocate Junling Hu writes:

    “A gun is a consumer product, sold for cash and purchased by individuals. While all other consumer products including teddy bears are subject to strict federal laws, guns are given a free pass. There are no safety regulation on guns thanks to the NRA’s lobbying efforts. Unsafe guns lead to accidents and death of adults and children at home. The ones who suffer are the gun owners.

    “A gun is also a lethal weapon. Falling into the wrong hand, it enables a criminal to kill, a gang member to fight, and a teenager to seek revenge. Guns are deadlier than tobacco, alcohol or gambling combined. While all of these are off limits to youngsters, and although a 20-year-old can be arrested for drinking a beer, he can go scot-free for buying a gun.

    “The debate over gun laws is muffled by the slogan, ‘We need less government regulation.’ It is as if government regulation is always wrong. These people ignore the fact that the government regulates every aspect of our life today. From water to air, to drugs and toys, everything touching us is regulated by law. Without the Clean Air Act, we would be breathing dirty air emissions from power plants; we would be drinking unsafe water. Without government regulation, medicines with fatal side effects would not be pulled off shelves and toys with lead poison would still be on the market. Government regulation affects our housing safety, our food quality, our driving safety (through speed limits and safety belt laws). As we live in a civilized society, the government serves as a mediator and enforcer as no individual can do.

    “The freedom of owning a gun has virtually nothing to do with abiding gun laws. Anyone can own an automobile, but they still need to register and get licenses for their cars. Everyone has the freedom of owning a house, but they still have to watch for zoning regulation and fire safety requirements.

    “Sensible gun laws govern manufacturing standard, product safety, and accessible by minors and criminals. Sensible gun laws govern the safety of our street, our school, and most importantly, the safety of our home.

    “Common sense gun laws such as closing gun show loophole, assault weapon ban, and child-lock are fundamentally needed to be sure guns do not fall into wrong hands. Yet all these basic laws are fought against by the NRA lobby. How far can we go in this extremist view of so-called ‘individual freedom’? The consequence of suffering is demonstrated by deadly shooting every day, in every corner of America. Each day, over 80 people die from gun shooting, from accidents at home, to disputes with one’s neighbor, to random shootings on the street. The deadly consequence of ‘gun freedom’ are the death of a young four-year-old–shot while playing with guns, a 15-year-old while in heat of argument, and a 19-year-old walking out of a nightclub.

    “America does not have to be a society soaked in blood, because the bloody consequences were caused by a powerful gun lobby that stripped away our basic protection from the law. Let’s work to enact sensible gun laws. We ask for sensible regulation on guns, as we ask for regulation on food and drugs. The gun issue is no longer a private matter but a public safety issue. It affects all of us. Let’s pass sensible gun laws now.”

    The logic of gun control can best be understood by considering the analogy of the automobile. A car is a potentially lethal weapon. To drive a car, one must be trained, licensed, and have that license periodically renewed. And a car is designed solely as a means of transportation. Guns, on the other hand, are deliberately designed to kill people. It is not unreasonable to demand their regulation.

    Guns are the second deadliest consumer product (after cars) on the market. By the end of the 1990s, firearms will likely supplant automobiles as the leading cause of product-related deaths throughout the United States. In 1990, American guns claimed an estimated 37,000 lives. There are no federal safety standards for the domestic manufacture of guns. There are no voluntary, industry-wide safety standards for the manufacture of guns.

    Every two minutes, somebody somewhere in the United States is shot. Every 14 minutes, somebody dies from a gunshot wound. Each gun injury involving hospitalization costs $33,159. A license to sell a gun costs 83 cents per month.

    A gun rolls off the assembly line in America every 10 seconds. America imports another gun every 11 seconds. There are 246,984 gun dealers in the United States, but only 240 inspectors to keep an eye on them.

    There is a popular myth that handgun ownership makes people safer. In reality, the New England Journal of Medicine reports that a handgun in the home is 43 times more likely to kill the owner, a family member, or a friend than it is to kill an intruder. Over 75 percent of firearm deaths in a typical year involve handguns. The FBI Uniform Crime Statistics Report says that nationally, there were 38,317 firearm deaths in 1992, but fewer than 300 justifiable homicides.

    Another myth is that gun control laws don t make a difference. In reality, strict handgun regulation saves lives. In Washington, DC, a tougher gun law actually reduced homicides by 25 percent through the mid-1980s. Again, the New England Journal of Medicine reports that 47 lives were saved in Washington, DC, in a typical year studied, because of that city’s handgun ban.

    Most other industrialized nations have virtual bans on handgun sales. In 1990, handguns were used in the homicides of 13 people in Sweden, 91 in Switzerland, 87 in Japan, 22 in Great Britain, and 68 in Canada, compared to 10,567 in the United States.

    Is gun control constitutional? The Second Amendment refers to “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Roger Tatarian, professor emeritus of journalism at California State University, Fresno, notes, however, that “things can change over time” with regards to the original intent of the founders.

    The Third Amendment, for example, protects citizens against compulsory quartering of troops in private homes. Technology has also made obsolete the constitutional provision giving Congress the right to declare war. “No president who is warned that a hostile missile is en route…has time nowadays to ask Congress for a declaration of war before responding,” states Tartarian. “He can commit the country to an all-out war simply by pressing a button.”

    Tartarian observes: “The Constitution certainly does not ban private ownership of weapons; that would have been unthinkable for a people still living in an often hostile natural environment and where many depended on hunting for a livelihood. But a tradition of owning arms is one thing and a constitutional guarantee is quite another. They ought not be confused

    According to Tatarian: “The Second Amendment as it now exists evolved from a draft offered by James Madison on June 8, 1789. His intent very clearly was to tie the constitutional right to own arms to service in official militias regulated by state governments.” Madison’s original proposal reads:

    “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; a well armed and well regulated militia being the best security of a free country: but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person.”

    The final version of the amendment which emerged from a House-Senate conference on September 25, 1789, also tied the constitutional right to bear arms to service in a militia, and stated that such militias are to be “well regulated”:

    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

    Handgun control is constitutional. The courts have repeatedly ruled that the Second Amendment does not apply to individuals outside the context of “a well regulated militia.” A handgun control ordinance was upheld by the U.S. Seventh Court of Appeals in 1982, which issued the following statement: “We conclude that the right to keep and bear handguns is not guaranteed by the Second Amendment.”

    The Supreme Court let the decision stand by refusing to hear the appeal of the handgun lobby. The Supreme Court ruled in United States v. Cruikshank that the Second Amendment doesn’t mean anything except “(the right to keep and bear arms) shall not be infringed by Congress.”

    This 1876 ruling established that states and localities are not prevented from enacting their own gun control laws–and they remain free to do so to this day. In 1980, the Supreme Court reconfirmed that “these legislative restrictions on the use of firearms do not trench upon any constitutionally protected liberties.”

    Guns should be regulated like other consumer products. Handguns and assault rifles should be banned, and ammunition should be taxed heavily.

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      This isn’t rocket science and the constitution is not that difficult to understand.

    • ROY S MALLMANN says:

      If you would quit “Cherry-Picking” your data and instead referred to the latest FBI National Crime Statistics, 2017, most of your “facts” go down the toilet. The majority of handgun violence emanates from the largest cities in the U.S., coincidentally, that have been under Democrat Party rule for decades, which pretty much says it all. This is a result of looking the other way as long as the violence is only in the minority high crime areas. As in Chicago, they cannot accept blame for the huge murder rate stating that it is because guns are bought and brought to Chicago from surrounding Republican governed states. This is hog wash because the crime in those “Republican governed states with lax gun laws have crime rates that are pretty much non-existent. The problem is a total lack of law enforcement by prosecutors and judges in Chicago who give out probation or community service in gun crimes. If a criminal is caught with an illegal gun he has to pay a $100.00 fine and give up the gun. The police arrest the gang members and criminals and the judges and prosecutors let them go. Liberals have never met a law that they could not enforce.

      • Steve Scoutaris says:

    “Schumer knows the Democrats needed to flip Senate seats in… states like Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, and North Carolina if they have any hope of winning back the Senate…”

    Instead of demonizing Democrats, if pro-lifers really want to end abortion, it’s going to have to be bipartisan. I told Jim Frey of Berkeley Pro-Life over a decade ago that we (Democrats) never see pro-lifers venture beyond their own base. Rather than reach across the aisle to Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc., and try to bring them on board with protecting unborn children, they just play to the same old Ronald Reagan / Oliver North crowd.

    If pro-lifers really want to end abortion, opposition to abortion must come from across the political spectrum. Pro-lifers are going to have to venture beyond their own base and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals etc. to distinguish abortion from arguably victimless crimes like marijuana; to argue on secular grounds that the unborn are persons (secular arguments are religion-neutral, and thus applicable to everyone, including atheists and agnostics) and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc. to see the killing of the unborn on par with domestic violence, hate crimes against LGBTs, etc.; and make the case to Americans that it’s possible to protect prenatal life without taking to draconian measures violating a new mother’s privacy and civil liberties in this regard.

    Robert Casey, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, said he believed a pro-life liberal Democrat would easily be elected president: conservatives would vote for a pro-lifer, and liberals would vote for a Democrat articulating opposition to abortion as a secular and nonsectarian civil rights issue. In 1994, even archconservative Pat Buchanan had kind words for Robert Casey! If pro-life Democrats had greater visibility in past decades, perhaps Carol Crossed would have been the first female speaker of the House.

    After the 2016 election losses, Nancy Pelosi admits that the Democratic Party’s support of abortion has not been a winning issue. Pelosi spoke to the Washington Post about whether her party should support pro-life candidates or require that candidates support easy access to taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

    Struggling after heavy election losses in 2016, many in the Democratic Party are debating whether to support pro-life candidates, especially in rural areas where voters tend to be pro-life. Some, like Pelosi, appear to be recognizing that the party’s support of abortion-on-demand-up-to-birth is losing them voters.

    Unfortunately, rather than seeing the abortion issue as a real loser for Democrats, especially in red states (crucial with winning the Electoral College!), Pelosi blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on pro-life voters themselves! Clinton supported the unpopular platform of forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions, and she promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth, if elected.

    Pelosi told the Washington Post : “You know what? That’s why Donald Trump is president of the United States—the evangelicals and the Catholics, anti-marriage equality, anti-choice. That’s how he got to be president. Everything was trumped, literally and figuratively by that.”

    Pelosi, who supports abortion but describes herself as a Catholic, said many in her Catholic family are pro-life. She also mentioned U.S. Sen. Bob Casey from Pennsylvania, a Democrat with a mixed record on abortion.

    “You think I’m kicking them out of the Democratic Party?” Pelosi said.

    Jay Ware, a black Democrat in Illinois, said on the Democrats For Life email list as early as 2004 that it should be automatic: just as the Republican Party supports pro-choice candidates like Rudy Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzenegger in blue states like New York and California where pro-lifers can’t win and even has Republican president George W. Bush campaign for them, Jay Ware said the Democratic Party should similarly support pro-life Democrats in red states where pro-choicers can’t win, and have Democratic presidents campaign for pro-life Democrats, etc.

    “The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”

    –Hubert H. Humphrey

    Fifty-nine percent of Democrats favored a ban on partial-birth abortion. (Gallup Poll, November 1, 2000)

    Eighty-nine percent of Americans favored informed consent for women seeking abortions. (Gallup Poll, 2002)

    Sixty-seven percent of Democrats would outlaw some or all abortions. (Gallup Poll, May 5-7, 2003)

    Forty-three percent of Democrats agreed with the statement that abortion”destroys a human life and is manslaughter.” (Zogby Poll, December 2004)

    Seventy percent of high school senior females say they would not consider abortion if they became pregnant while in high school. (Hamilton College/Zogby Poll, January 2008)

    Seventy-seven percent of Americans believe abortion should have stricter limitations. (CBS News Poll, January 2008)

    Twenty-nine percent of Democratic Convention delegates disagreed with the statement, “Abortion should be generally available to those who want it rather than under stricter limits or not permitted.” However, 52 percent of Democratic voters as a whole disagreed. This large discrepancy between party leadership and membership indicates a serious problem that Democrats For Life of America wants to rectify.

    During the 2008 campaign, Reverend Jim Wallis (of Sojourners) advised Barack Obama to support a plank in the Democratic Party Platform that would aim to reduce abortions by focusing on supporting low income women and making adoption easier. (This is the 95-10 Initiative, advanced by pro-life Democrats in Congress.) Reverend Tony Campolo served on the Platform Committee and has issued a strong statement in support of a pro-life position.

    A “conscience clause” which appeared in the 2000 Democratic Platform (but not in 2004) acknowledges that there are pro-life people in our Party and we respect their views. It reads as follows:

    “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our Party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, like abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may hold differing positions on these and other issues.”

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014, “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      What a rock of bull dust! This is another example of DEMONcRATs trying to disarm law abiding Americans as well as no regard for the Constitution. If they want to do this, then pass a Constitutional Amendment which repeals the 2nd Amendment.

      • Laura says:

        Funny, you are like that cranky old man who is a character in Jeff Dunbar’s comedy act – – the one that is always whining and complaining, frowning and sitting around like old French males who smoke and complain “my ass itches!” Let’s see, Walter, a male over 70, who is retired and not in great health and income?!? Drives everyone away with constant bitching?

        • Steve Scoutaris says:

          No Laura, you are the one that is way off base with your party.
          Even HRC mentioned she would like to do what Australia did, and she’ supposed to be a moderate. Apparently you don’t know your own party very well.

          • R.C. says:

            Steve, you don’t know the Democrat party well – – they are just pointing out that with a reduction in guns available, you see a comparable reduction in violent crime. If you look at domestic violence alone, households with guns are much more likely to see high levels of serious violence than those that do not.

            Apparently, Steve, you don’t know the facts and dangers about gun ownership very well. Are you an old fart over 70 also?

          • Steve Scoutaris says:

            R.C. of the democrats really thought grabbing guns would reduce gun violence then they wouldn’t start with AR-15s. They would start with handguns.
            You’d be surprised how many facts I know.

          • Donald Duck says:

            Steve please stop I’m goin wet my pants laughing at your stupidity.

        • Will Triebel says:

          Laura, are you, perhaps. one of AOC’s airheaded Twitter followers? I’ve never heard of any of them expressing a though that wasn’t spoon fed to them by left-wing extremists and conspiracy theorists.
          Though I will give you some credit for being able to watch Dunbar without getting offended and screaming racist over his Jose Jalapeno routine. He is hilarious.

          • Donald Duck says:

            Will you also please stop I’m goin wet my pants laughing at your stupidity.

          • Will Triebel says:

            Hey Duckyboy, shouldn’t you ignorant children be in bed? Your mommy to strung out on the crack pipe to give you any attention? That sucks. Go play some video games or something.

          Since when does someone over 70 lose his/her right of free speech.
          Get lost, we don’t have a found dept.

        • Donald Duck says:

          Laura and their hero is Bubba Jay he drinks all day can only make left turns and just like him they get lost when the emergency break comes loose on their mobile home and rolls two feet.
