CNN anchor Don Lemon went on an anti-gun rampage Monday, stating, “We need to get guns and bullets and automatic weapons off the streets.”
And in a stunning admission of what conservatives have always known about the mainstream media and liberal politicians, an MSNBC anchor tipped his hand Saturday by stating that the objective of gun control advocates is outright confiscation.
Ed Schultz of MSNBC stated on Twitter that the government should confiscate the types of weapons used by mass murderer Adam Lanza in Friday’s school massacre.
The term “confiscation” is very different from the concept of simply passing more gun control laws or banning so-called assault weapons. A program of confiscation means that law enforcement would go door to door demanding that citizens turn over their firearms.
Although Schultz outwardly seemed to limit his support for confiscation to high powered, high capacity weapons, liberals have increasingly made it clear that handguns are in their sights as well.
A priest who conducted a memorial service Sunday in Newtown, Conn. stated from the pulpit that he is no longer willing to live in a society that allows handguns and assault weapons.
And Democrats in Congress have made it clear that they will make drastic new gun control a top priority in the new session that begins in January.
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., stated that her first order of business as soon as the new session of Congress begins is to introduce a bill that would ban all high powered, high capacity firearms.
During his anti-gun rant Monday, Lemon further claimed that mental health is only a secondary issue. He maintained that a mentally ill person would not be able to go on a killing spree if guns were banned.
However, the facts appear to contradict Lemon’s claims. In Norway, for example, guns are banned. Yet a deranged killer went on a rampage in 2011 that left 77 people dead. Knives are also a favorite weapon of crazed murderers who storm schools all over the world, particularly in China.
Gun bans and confiscation are well-known as a precursor to government imposed tyranny and oppression all across the world. Prior to sending 7 million Jews to their deaths in the 1930s and 40s, Adolf Hitler outlawed guns and confiscated them. Prior to the Soviet scourge of Joseph Stalin that sent 27 million Russians to their deaths, Stalin enacted a complete gun ban and confiscated them from those who had them. And when Chairman Mao came to power in the Communist takeover of China, one of the first things he did was ban guns and confiscate them from citizens, leaving them powerless to fight for their lives when the government thugs came to slaughter them.
70 million Chinese citizens were murdered in cold blood by Chairman Mao.
