And then, if and when you do get a chance to speak, they walk out.
A short video from Minnesota (which has been pulled from YouTube since the writing of this article) spotlights shameful behavior by elected Democrats, supposedly interested in conducting a “national conversation on guns.”
At a meeting, two firearms experts came forward to speak, bringing with them two common Ruger 10/22 rifles that had been cleared by security. The purpose of their presentation was to explain how the gun-control laws currently being proposed would outlaw only a gun’s cosmetic features while not affecting the functionality of the firearms in any measurable way in terms of rate of fire and accuracy.
In the video, DFL legislators simply arise and exit without explanation. They avoid learning details from the presentation about the very firearms they seek to legislate out of existence.
These Democrats in the video, and other nationally prominent Democrats including the president, have not demonstrated a desire for a “national conversation.” They have instead demonstrably lied to constituents and bullied gun-rights advocates.
As has often been said, gun control ain’t about guns; it’s about control. And the very idea that our rulers ought to at least pretend to listen to their subjects–and to care about annoying, obtrusive little things like actual facts that contradict their totalitarian edicts–is just downright silly.
Why, it’s almost as if you serfs think you have rights or something.
