This One Story Demonstrates Anti-Gun Democrats Are World Class Hypocrites


As Senate Democrats prepared to use the Oregon shooting deaths as a political football to push gun control measures, one story capturing the scene showed their weapons grade-level of hypocrisy.

Because of the increased number of lawmakers attending the session held yesterday on the Capitol steps, security was beefed up with additional U.S. Capitol Police officers, a marked increase to the usual level of security.

Armed police officers. Multiple guns.

If they truly believed in guns being the enemy of safety, wouldn’t they hold session in a gun free building? Perhaps Congress could become a gun free zone.

Via the Washington Times:

Senate Democrats gathered Thursday on the steps of the Capitol surrounded by about a dozen armed guards to announce a new push for tougher gun-control laws.

The officers from the U.S. Capitol Police, who carried sidearms, were in addition to the regular detail patrolling the Capitol ground due the large number of elected officials attending the event, according to a officer on the scene.

About 27 Democratic senators attended the event.

Here is an AP file photo from 2014 which shows the scene as lawmakers enter the chamber:


New York Democrat Chuck Schumer said “We are asking, as the president said, to make their voices heard,” before adding “We expect there will be a groundswell.”

Schumer’s colleagues in New York produced the most stringent gun control measures in the nation known as the SAFE Act, but they didn’t actually want to stop there.

A document produced shortly after the SAFE Act was enacted with no debate, showed confiscation of ‘assault’ rifles was at the top of the list.

Comment: Should Democrats who want to push gun control measures and a gun free society practice what they preach?

    It is okay for the gun grabbers have armed guards?? And I can’t defend myself 24/7? What could I do if a drunken sailor threatens me? Will someone else be there to handle this situation? I not going to any gun free zone either and be nothing there except a target some a criminal.

  2. K Thomas says:

    EVERY life loving, mother loving children protecting Senator and congress man ought to heed the call from the nation to pass a strct law confiscating un licensed guns, and guns that are transported across state likes, without local registration and police permit, to do so.
    WHY are these people brown nosing NRA and Netayahu!

      I don’t think you people understand . How do you get rid of the world’s biggest army? Many other country’s have never tryed to cross our borders do to the fact if one man would say it’s open season prepare to defend our ground! How many of us would fact come a running. We never used to have these shottings before on until the economy started getting really bad. Personally I think they are being done on purpose with help from someone who wants to get these guns. I’m sure of it. Just take a look at the middle east we are at war yet but they want what? Oh no we ain’t stupid I smell something in our wood pale. They never tryed this with any of our wars in the history of this country. Why now?
