Now we are getting to the truth, this gun control plan has been in the works for quite sometime, and the far left has been waiting in the wings to pounce. Sadly, they had to use the shooting of innocent children to push for their goal: disarm the law abiding citizen, and destroy the Second Amendment.
There is a hot new video at MRCTV.ORG from 1995, which shows Attorney General Eric Holder, when he was just the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.
In his remarks before the Woman’s National Democratic Club, broadcast by CSPAN 2, Holder said people should be ashamed to own guns, just the way that cigarette smokes now “cower outside of buildings” to smoke.
“What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we’ve changed our attitudes about cigarettes. You know, when I was growing up, people smoked all the time. Both my parents did. But over time, we changed the way that people thought about smoking, so now we have people who cower outside of buildings and kind of smoke in private and don’t want to admit it.” Laughter followed.
Then at the end of the clip, Holder says anti gun ads should run everyday, and that they really need to “brainwash” people to think about guns another way.
This prompted the TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp to blow her top.
“I cannot tell you how offended I am to hear Eric Holder, or anyone, talking about shaming gun owners,” Cupp said during a Thursday broadcast of “Real News” on Blaze TV. “I feel it inside. It makes my blood boil, because it so fundamentally misunderstands the Second Amendment.”
“The idea that he would paint me with the same brush as some criminal that he’s talking about is so offensive, but that is so common because most people who talk about gun control don’t distinguish,” she added.
“They are making law abiding gun owners defend their rights, which are already on the books.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Holder’s “brainwashing” plan is working. Look at how the sales of guns have skyrocketed, not to mention the fact that in the past 18 days, 100,000 people have joined the NRA. In trying to “brainwash”, all the left has done is make gun owners dig in and defend their constitutional rights.
