I often hear the following question asked these days:
Why are supporters of gun rights so unwilling to compromise?
If the people asking the question took the time to study the history of gun “control” in America the answer would become pretty obvious to them.
All right, most of them.
But the following exchange at the “One Billion Rising” Rally in the nation’s capital on Valentine’s Day between U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL 9th District) and conservative video journalist Jason Mattera should provide some insight as to why the pro-Second Amendment crowd continues to “stick to their guns.”
MATTERA: So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?
SCHAKOWSKY: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun… something. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.
“Rep. Jan Schakowsky: Assault Weapons ban ‘Just the Beginning’”
Sounds to me like a push to ban handguns is in the cards as well.
