When anti-Second Amendment Democrat politicians and the activists who support them claim they have no intention to ban all guns, they're lying.
Take for example Bonnie Schaefer, a progressive business woman helping to shape the Democrat platform, which will be officially adopted at the DNC convention in Philadelphia. In a moment of honesty during a meeting this week, Schaefer openly declared that not only should guns for criminals be banned, but for everyone.
"[Focus] Not just keeping the guns out of the hands of mentally ill people and criminals but I really don’t personally think anyone should have a gun,” Schaefer said. "Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand, except the worst possible scenario."
Handguns are used more than a million times annually for self-defense, and those are just the cases that get reported. Severe bodily harm or death are certainly "the worst possible scenarios" often prevented thanks to civilians who carry firearms to protect themselves and their families.
UPDATE: I should add the DNC convention will in fact have armed security.
Meanwhile, Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton won't say if Americans have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
When Donald Trump says Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment, he's absolutely correct. She'll do it through regulation and executive orders.
