Right to own firearms

Democrats Move to Strip Political Enemies of the Right to Own Firearms

Obama’s liberal base, led by the influential Center for American Progress (CAP), proposed on Friday a number of measures designed to rollback the Second Amendment, including a proposal to disarm Americans the government has classified as terrorists.

CAP was founded by the head of Obama’s presidential transition team after the 2008 election and the former chief of staff for president Clinton, John Podesta. The think tank receives funding from George Soros and the Democracy Alliance, an organization founded by former Clinton Treasury official Rob Stein. Members include former Rockefeller Family Fund president Anne Bartley, Tides Foundation founder Drummond Pike, and a roster of influential and wealthy liberals.

On Monday, CAP boss Neera Tanden will moderate a discussion between Democrats who have played leading roles in the effort to scale back the Second Amendment, including Rahm Emanuel, the current mayor of handgun-free Chicago and Obama’s former chief of staff.

Emanuel was instrumental during the Clinton administration in getting the first assault weapons ban passed and is currently working on legislation in Chicago to seize firearms. Other Democrats who will take part in the CAP discussion include the notorious gun-grabber Chuck Schumer from New York and California’s Rep. Mike Thompson, who chairs the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.

Back in 2007, Emanuel, then a member of the United States House of Representatives, told the annual Stand Up For a Safe America event sponsored by the Brady Center that Americans on the terrorist no fly list would not be allowed to own a gun.

At the time, according to the Inspector General of the FBI-administered Terrorist Screening Center, there were well over 700,000 names on the no-fly database and the list was growing at an astronomical rate of 20,000 records per month.
