It Begins… Democratic Lawmaker Calls for Confiscation of Guns

Here we go…
An Iowa Democrat called for the government to start confiscating guns.

The Daily Caller reported:

In an interview with the Daily Times Herald in Caroll, Iowa, state Rep. Dan Muhlbauer said governments should start confiscating semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.

Muhlbauer, a Democrat from the western Iowa town of Manilla, is a cattleman and farmer. The newspaper reported that he owns a .410 shotgun, a .22 rifle and a .22 pistol.

“We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the semi-automatics and all of them,” Muhlbauer told the newspaper during a December 19 audiotaped interview. “We can’t have those running around out here. Those are not hunting weapons.”

    There’s a good gun stats power point going around the internet.
    The name is firearmsbestpowerpoint1.pps.

    I can’t find a clean download on the internet, but I’ve seen it in email.
    Some good quotes, like:

    Those who hammer their shotguns into plows will be ruled by those who don’t.
    (Not a precise quote, i think it’s John Adams)

    What’s funny is that they can read something as simple as the commerce clause and extrapolate it to mean virtually anything they want to do money-wise, but when they read the 2nd amendment, they can’t even get the meaning of the word “security”.

    Commerce can mean health insurance, welfare, social security, etc. but “security” means hunting and sports.

    Go figure.

    So he’s a farmer and a cattle man and only owns 3 guns. Two .22s & a shotgun…I’m calling BS. I would bet he has several other high caliber pistols and rifles to take of animals that may attack his cattle on his farm.

    Once Again, Our God Given Second Ammendment Right Has NOTHING to do with Hunting…NOTHING! It is meant to be the Last Defense against a tyrannical government and to keep the government in Fear of the people,who are the Sovereign,in case the government even thinks about getting out of line.

    True. The Second Amendment doesn’t specify what arms are. That’s left up to we the people. In point of fact, however, the federal government has already banned ‘assault weapons’.


    A fully automatic weapon (a machine gun) is one that fires a succession of bullets so long as the trigger is depressed or until the ammunition supply is exhausted. In addition, any weapon that shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot automatically, more than one shot at a time by a single trigger pull, is legally considered to be a machine gun.

    Submachine guns are fully automatic weapons that fire a handgun cartridge and can be operated by one person. Sometimes they are referred to as machine pistols.

    A machine gun can normally fire between 400 and 1,000 rounds (bullets) per minute, or between 7 and 17 rounds per second.

    Federal Firearms Regulations

    It has been unlawful since 1934 (The National Firearms Act) for civilians to own machine guns without special permission from the U.S. Treasury Department. Machine guns are subject to a $200 tax every time their ownership changes from one federally registered owner to another, and each new weapon is subject to a manufacturing tax when it is made, and it must be registered with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in its National Firearms Registry.’

    Full Auto Weapons

    Semi-automatic weapons regardless of appearance and ammo capacity are not assault weapons and are suitable mainly for hunting and home defense. It would be absurd to issue semi-automatic arms to the military, the military requires full auto assault weapons to do their job. On the other hand full auto weapons are covered by the 2nd Amendment, and we the people have been denied those since the mid-30s. If the government manages to outlaw semi-automatic weapons it will not be satisfied but will then want to classify 22 caliber single shot rifles as ‘assault weapons’. We should demand that government restore our right to own full auto weapons.

    What liberals fail to understand, guns aren’t just for ‘hunting’.
    They are also used for defensive purposes and protection.
    Protection we peasants need.
    Protection from fascism & governmental tyranny.
    Our founding fathers were shrewed fellows indeed.

    Lawmaker needs to read our Constitution of the United States. And he has to take an oath to abide by this document. He will be voted out of office. Any office of leadership has he is not a leader of America.

    If he doesn’t like our Constitution then PLEASE LEAVE.

    Dem Congressman: Obama Has The Right To ‘Legitimate Violence’ Against Rebellious Citizens, But Not The Other Way Around

    – Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said only the federal government should have “high-capacity” gun magazines and that the “state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence.”

    The lawmaker told that he not only supports prohibiting the future sale of 10-round gun magazines, but he would like to confiscate high-capacity clips already legally possessed by American citizens. then asked, “But if a bill was brought up and passed to ban high-capacity clips would the military still be allowed to use them?”

    “Of course, the military would be allowed to use them,” Nadler said.

    “So only the government would be allowed to have high-capacity clips?” asked.


    “But let me say, yes,” Nadler added. “One of the definitions of a nation state is that the state has a monopoly on legitimate violence. And the state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence.”

    “If the premise of your question is that people are going to resist a tyrannical government by shooting machine guns at American troops, that’s insane,” he said.

    I am pretty damn sick and tired of these commie traitors. I hope he gets what he deserves.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “Those are not hunting weapons.”

    Totally irrelevant.

    If he doesn’t understand what Second Amendment rights are, then he needs to be removed from office.

    Biden announce this morning, about three hours ago, that Obama has EOs ready to deal with guns. Gun ban is happening now.

    “The president is going to act,” said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. “There are executives orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required.”

    #16 Paul52 you are so right when you say “Someone explain to Dumass Daniel that the 2nd Amendment is NOT about hunting; it’s about the threats of a tyrannical government.” And we are now being threatened by Obama’s tyrannical government.

    You’re 100% wrong. They do understand that guns aren’t just for hunting, the thing is they don’t care, because of their hatred for the Second Amendment.

  • TrickyDick

    And I wonder what this clueless moron had to say about this. Nothing I’m guessing.

    He’s a Democrat lawmaker. It’s the Democrat party. – Flintstone

    No. It’s isn’t.

    It’s a Democratic lawmaker and the Democratic Party.

    Democrat is a noun. Democratic is an adjective.

    Call them leftists and be done with it, but stop consistently getting this wrong.

    It’s Democratic.

  • Candy

    I also noticed they’re plowing the web re: 2nd amendment equals the militia.

    I guess the right to be secure re: person, home, property will be stricken from the fourth as well.

    Even Robert Byrd wouldn’t have gone for this.

    This is what happens when communists take over education, law schools and media.

    If you want to know the constitution, don’t take constitutional law at liberal, elite law schools. They twist it or talk of changing it.

    They’ve tried to separate keep from bear ( re: keep and bear/ bear meaning outside the home, keep meaning inside, to shut off sides of the amendment).

  • Winston Wolfe

    thank you #14, I try and try and try to get people to use the right word but with a “news” media misusing it all the time, it’s pretty impossible.

    You’re wrong, too.

    It’s Democratic. Look it up.

  • Sarge

    .410’s are what people in the midwest used to teach their 9-year-olds to shoot with. There are pistols that can chamber that tiny load.

    Speaking of tiny loads, how does this supposed ‘cattleman’ deal with having to put down a severely injured cow or bull with on .22-cal weapons to hand? Let the animal suffer until the vet can show up?

    Iowans, hang your head in shame for having elected such a ridiculous person to represent you.
