We’ve heard it all before. It’s not “gun control”, it’s “gun safety” or “gun sense”. That’s total BS, as it’s just a rebranding of the term to make it sound nice. Heck, Bloomberg’s Moms even admitted to it 2 months after they formed:
What’s in a name? A lot, if your name includes the term “gun control.” So in a nod to the political realities of the moment, a group founded in the days after the Newtown, Conn., school shooting is officially changing its name by dropping the politically loaded term.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is the new name for an organization formerly known as One Million Moms for Gun Control, the group’s founder will announce Wednesday. The change was prompted by confusion with another group, One Million Moms, which advocates for family-friendly entertainment media — and because the group’s old name includes the term “gun control.”
“We’ve gotten a lot of feedback from stakeholders that ‘gun control’ isn’t the best term to use because it can be polarizing,” the group’s founder, Shannon Watts, said in an interview Tuesday. “We don’t want to be polarizing – we want to be a nonpartisan organization. We’re not about overturning the Second Amendment or banning guns, but we also don’t believe that we should arm every citizen.”
Watts, a former public relations executive, said the feedback came from “the legislative community, from other people in advocacy organization and from our own members, from moms who are conservative or NRA members who said to us, this term ‘gun control’ is polarizing, we need to come up with a better name so it makes it seem like we can all sit under the same umbrella.”
So now that we got that out of the way (gun safety/gun sense=gun control), let’s discuss what happened last night (6/11/19) in Deerfield, Illinois at a town hall event with State Senator Julie Morrison.
Morrison is the driving force between many anti-2nd amendment bills that have been introduced in the senate. She despises gun owners and firearms all together. She was the main sponsor for SB107, which is an “assault weapon” ban which would stop further sales and require current owners of so-called “assault weapons” to register them with the state police and pay a fee (pretty much a tax) in order to keep them. If you fail to do so, congratulations! You just became a felon (and lose your 2nd amendment rights all together).
As most 2A supporters will tell you, registration leads to confiscation. The anti-gun activists and politicians say it doesn’t. They say “no one wants your guns”. Well, thanks to Senator Morrison last night, we know that’s not true. Please watch the following exchange:

You heard it. Clear as day. She got mad at a legitimate question she was asked and out of spite, said “screw it! I’ll just take the damn things” (confiscation). What’s even more shocking is that her Moms Demand Action supporters applauded the statement, further cementing that they themselves are not looking for “responsible gun safety laws”, but are looking for firearms to be taken by force (if necessary) from law abiding citizens.
Make no mistake, folks. These politicians are not interested in the legality of such actions or protecting your constitutional right to bear arms. They want your guns and they will gladly turn you into a felon at the stroke of a pen. They will also gladly send people with guns to your home in order to force you to hand over your guns. If you resist, you get arrested or even shot and killed. These legislators and their activist allies are enemies of the constitution and they make that clear. They hide behind fancy terms which deceive the uneducated. This (below) was the reaction of one Moms Demand Action member when Morrison suggested confiscation. She looked back at the 2A crowd and had a glowing smile on her face.
