The totality of Congressional Democrats’ unspoken gun control agenda has come into a little clearer focus, now that an exchange between a conservative journalist and an unwitting liberal Illinois House Representative last month has begun making the Internet rounds.
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) evidently presumed she was in sympathetic company at the “One Billion Rising” rally last month, and unknowingly allowed her thoughts on getting guns out of Americans’ hands to – well, to fall into the wrong hands.
Challenged by reporter Jason Mattera that there’s no way for Congress to make and end-run around the 2nd Amendment and to ban handguns outright, Schakowsky said “I don’t know if we can’t.”
She also can’t remember what gun-grabbing group she belongs to, calling the Council Against Handgun Violence “the Council Against Handgun…something. Yeah, I’m a member of that.”
