Chuck Schumer Knows Last Time Democrats Pushed Gun Grabbing They Lost Badly At The Ballot Box

Sure, most people are in favor of keeping guns out of the hands of people with bad intent. We can all agree on that, right? Unless you’re planning to shoot someone or more than one. The devil is always in the details, though, and as soon as you start looking at those details the types of gun control being pushed poll lower and lower, and people realize that it mostly affects the law abiding, are stepping stones toward even more restrictions, and what the unhinged barking moonbat base really wants is bans

The Hill: Democrats Have Lost Elections Because of Gun-Control Push

On Saturday, the Hill published a column on the Democrats’ precarious position of desiring to secure more gun control but knowing that pursuit of new gun laws has cost them elections in the past.

The Hill reported:

While Republicans have been criticized for an unwillingness to take even small steps to restrict access to guns in response to a national plague of mass shootings, it’s not lost on Democrats that the last time they had an extended debate and votes on ambitious gun proposals in 2013, they lost nine seats and their Senate majority in the following election.”

The Hill noted Democrats also believe voter pushback to the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban is part of why they lost the 2000 president election.

And here is something else to consider: ABC News noted the federal “assault weapons” ban was signed on September 8, 1994. Approximately two months later, the “GOP easily [took] control of the U.S. House and Senate, gaining 12 governorships and regaining control in 20 state legislatures,” according to

Hence why The Hill article starts out

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is walking a tightrope on gun control legislation after two more mass shootings that have shaken the country and angered Democrats frustrated over inaction on guns.

While members of his caucus and progressive activists are pushing him to force the GOP to vote on an array of proposals, Schumer also wants to protect Democrats in tough races in purple states from taking tough votes.

I would hazard to guess that those election losses from the 2012 election weren’t just about guns, but, a continuation of the toxicity of Obama on Congressional and state elections for Democrats, but, pushing gun control sure didn’t help. And, voters this time may well see “gun control” as a distraction for the main issue, the economy.

There are lots and lots of Democrats yammering about repealing the 2nd, taking away all guns from private citizens. Voters see this from the extreme left, and will think about what comes next, especially when they see the extreme left trying to take away 1st Amendment rights.

Yeah, that’s a federally elected Representative attempting to take away Freedom of Speech, freedom to petition for redress of grievance, and right of free association from private citizens just for Wrongthink. Which group is next?

    In 1994, Governess Ann Richards was heavily favored to beat newcomer George W Bush in the Texas gubernatorial election. She had a ‘mildly’ progressive agenda, but one which included gun control. The Democrats lost big in 1994, taking the House, the Senate and several gubernatorial seats; Mr Bush soundly defeated Mrs Richards, 2,350,994 (53.48%) to 2,016,928 (45.88%).

    This year, gun-grabber Robert Francis Beta “Beto” “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” O’Rourke thinks he can beat popular incumbent Greg Abbott. I suspect that his strategy just might not work.

      Red flags anyone?!

      “Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them.

      As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two.

      “This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.

      “My dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care. It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing more of these ‘acts of love,’ and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out. The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were. … I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.”

    More AR-15s, Fewer Massacres!

    Gun-pimper Mx Beta O’Dana suspects current Governess Mx Beta Abbott will win the Texas goobernatorial election against Beto O’Rourke. We’ll see. Governess Abbutt’s strategy may be to ‘eliminate’ as many Hispanic voters as he can.

    • Jl says:

      Where have you been? Hispanic voters, many of whom are obviously in Texas, are turning toward the GOP.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        That could change now that the GOP has massacred all those Hispanic kids and falsely blamed it on an immigrant.

        Marjorie “Gazpacho” Greene (Q-Mars) lied that: the Uvalde shooter “was shown with him wearing eyeliner, cross-dressing”

        Slaughtering 19 children and two teachers (‘groomers’ in wingerspeak) is not evil. But being transgender IS. Crazy Republicun Greene is spreading the lie.

    Quite the Statist prick isn’t he? Rep. Jake Auchincloss obviously should be in the Chinese government, as he does not grasp liberty, freedom of speech, association, etc.

    In case you missed it, the perp was Hispanic as well.
