Iowa Democrat calls for retroactive gun ban and confiscation
The push to implement new control laws has been growing ever since the Sandy Hook massacre as the gun grabbers finally have a crisis which they feel they can use to do things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. Rahm Emanuel must be smiling from Chicago.
Last week we saw the state of Illinois put forth a bill which would have banned most weapons in the state and yesterday Governor Cuomo announced he would be introducing new sweeping gun control legislation in the state of New York.
And then of course there is the federal effort which appears to be led by Dianne Feinstein. If Dianne Feinstein has her way most handguns would be banned and those who already own them would be subjected to registering and fingerprinting as if we were criminals.
Now we have a state congressman in Iowa who wants to ban semi-automatic weapons in the state and make the ban retroactive complete with a confiscation effort.
Here is what Democrat Iowa State representative Dan Muhlbauer had to say about semi-automatic weapons in a semi-coherent manner:
We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the semi-automatics and all of them,” Muhlbauer told the newspaper during a December 19 audiotaped interview. “We can’t have those running around out here. Those are not hunting weapons.”
We should ban those in Iowa,” he said, adding that such a ban should be applied retroactively.
“We need to get them off the streets — illegally — and even if you have them, I think we need to start taking them,” Muhlbauer told the Daily Times Herald. “We can’t have those out there
With all these shootings going on we have to start making radical changes and radical choices from what we’ve done in the past
We need to get them off the streets illegally? Quite an interesting little slip of the tongue there, don’t you think? He is openly talking about banning semi-automatic weapons and confiscating them from law abiding citizens because he apparently believes the second amendment is about hunting and not about self defense.
Again I have to wonder if these people even understand what a semi-automatic weapon is so here is a simple explanation you pull the trigger and you fire a shot, you pull the trigger again and you fire another shot, etc. In other words, most guns are semi-automatic weapons. This isn’t about gun control at this point, it is about gun confiscation and Dan Muhlbauer isn’t the first person we have heard speaking like this in recent days.
