The good old bait and switch tactic. Sell people on one idea and then once they’re hooked, redirect them into supporting another, more extreme idea.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to any of us, but that’s exactly what many Democrats do with respect to gun control. They sell American voters on “common sense” safety measures that “respect the Second Amendment” during election season, but once they’re in power they change their tune and do everything they can to gut one’s Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Proof of this approach is not hard to find. Back when he was campaigning for president, Barack Obama did exactly that.
“When you all go home and you’re talking to your buddies and you say, ah ‘He wants to take my gun away.’ You’ve heard it here, I’m on television so everybody knows it. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away,” said Obama, during a campaign stop in a Lebanon, Virginia in 2008.
Fast forward to February 2013, the first year of his second term in office, and Obama sounds a bit different on the issue.
“We should restore the ban on military-style assault weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines. And that deserves a vote in Congress — because weapons of war have no place on our streets, or in our schools, or threatening our law enforcement officers,” said Obama while visiting the Minneapolis Police Department Special Operations Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
And yet again, we have more proof. The undercover video above, taken by Project Veritas Action, shows a Hillary Clinton Alternate Delegate discussing how the party softens its rhetoric to hide its true gun-banning agenda.
The PVA journalist asks the woman about whether Hillary supports banning all guns, to which she replies, “for sure… You have to take that sort of moderate ‘We just wanna have common sense legislation so our children are safe!’ You say s*** like that, and then people will buy into it.”
Right, sell voters the guff about “reasonable” and “common sense” and “keeping children safe” so they vote Hillary, only so that Hillary can turn around and do her darnedest to push for legislation that would ban many commonly owned and widely popular firearms.
As the woman goes on to say, “I’m totally against them [firearms]. And my husband is against guns. My husband is now a registered democrat.”
Again, this game of bait and switch shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you. But then again you’re not the target. The low information voter is the target. So, the onus is on us to educate those voters, to fight back against Hillary’s lies, to point out that when a Democrat says “common sense” and “reasonable” restrictions, what they really mean is “a ban on firearms.”
