“When interviewed by video journalist Jason Mattera, U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky … left no doubt that she and her ideological allies are working hard to pour a little more oil on that slope, and crank up the incline a few more degrees,” St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner Kurt Hofmann wrote, exposing the fraud of gungrabbers who ridicule warnings of a “slippery slope.”
“We’re on a roll now,” Schakowsky claimed. “We’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.”
When asked if the “assault weapon” ban was just the beginning, Schakowsky replied “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.”
“I don’t know that we can’t,” Schakowsky replied when the Second Amendment was raised as a hurdle to a handgun ban. “And there may be an allowance, once again, for communities. I have communities in my district that prohibited handguns within their borders. The rights of municipalities and states to view that as a sensible way to keep people safe -- I don’t think it’s precluded.”
What should also be a hurdle is the fact that Schakowsky is married to convicted felon Robert Creamer, who “pleaded guilty to defrauding banks out of 2.3 million dollars in a check-kiting scheme along with violations of federal tax laws.” That would make him a person prohibited by law from owning a handgun, an “assault weapon” or any kind of gun at all.
Or he should be, anyway -- prosecutors sought three years and Judge James B. Moran, a “liberal Democrat” Carter appointee and part of the same Chicago political machine that continues to reward Jan and Bob so handsomely, ignored federal sentencing guidelines and opted for five months in prison (during which time he penned the manifesto “How Progressives Can Win”), and 11 months under house arrest (during which time he was allowed to fly to Washington, D.C. four days a week to run his firm). Funny thing about that: Schakowsky served on the board of the Illinois Public Action Fund when hubby was doing his check-kiting, and signed the IRS filings along with him. And curiously, that little period of misunderstanding is absent from his Huffington Post credentials, where he continues to pen articles attacking, among other things “conservative,” the right of the law-abiding to keep and bear arms.
As we’ve seen many times in the past with the criminal records compiled by Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against [Your] Guns, the character of those who presume to call ours into question makes one thing very clear. What we’re dealing with are criminals who are perverting the “law” to disarm the rest of us. So of course they don’t trust us, with guns or with anything else. It’s a projection thing.
Because they know from the bottom of their corrupt souls that they can’t be trusted.
