Our Founding Fathers, particularly James Madison, known as the father of the Bill of Rights for his role in drafting the first ten amendments to the Constitution, would be rolling in their graves if they saw this display.
The Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms,” Madison wrote in The Federalist No. 46, published on January 29, 1788.
Now, Democrats are insisting that the government no longer trust the people with their right to be armed.
At a CNN town-hall meeting in which the questions were scripted, the crowd was stacked with people of one opinion, and the propaganda was thick, Rep. Ted Deutch expressed his desire to ban semi-automatic rifles, repeatedly referring to them as “weapons of war.”
The liberals in the crowd were ecstatic at the idea …
Essentially: Rubio is saying that you have to ban all semi-automatic guns or none at all. And that GOP will not support banning all.
Deutch is saying heck yes, let's ban them all. (And the crowd is on its feet.)

Senator Marco Rubio made the point that a previous assault weapons ban would not have stopped the Florida high school shooting.
“It’s not the loopholes, it’s the problem that once you start looking at how easy it is to get around it, you would literally have to ban every semi-automatic rifle that’s sold in America,” Rubio said.
The reaction of Deutch and the liberal crowd is a video Republicans should run on a loop until the end of time to make sure those law-abiding people, those Second Amendment freedom-loving Americans, vote to never let this happen.

This is pure insanity, fueled by emotion rather than thought or reason.
Democrats in New York have long been trying for an all-out ban on semi-automatic rifles.
During debate of New York’s Second Amendment-infringing Safe Act legislation, former state Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin introduced a wish list for Senate Democrats that included plans to confiscate so-called “assault weapons,” confiscate ten-round clips, and set up a database for every gun in the state.
During the debate (seen below), one Democrat requested that McLaughlin not reveal the wish list as it could “dampen the enthusiasm of compromise.”
Rest assured, they’re not interested in a compromise. They’re coming for your guns, and they’re stepping over the graves of high school students to make it happen.
“This a wake up call,” the NRA recently posted. “They’re coming after us.”
