Jan Schakowsky (D-umbass, IL) has never been a friend of freedom or the Second Amendment. After all, this is the harpy who suggested in 2013 that the plans for another scary black gun ban and the proposed elimination of the right to lawfully sell your own property to another individual were only the beginning of the leftard assaults on your Second Amendment rights.
The opportunistic sow from Illinois has never been one to allow a crisis to go unexploited, so this week, she decided to use the terror attacks in Paris, France for her own odious purposes – namely, more gun control in the United States.
“No, uh, obviously it is frightening for every western country, but I do want to remind you, before we killed a jihadist named Awlaki, he did a video that said to Americans, ‘join the jihad and get guns, because it’s so easy in the United States of America to get a weapon,’” Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky said on SiriusXM radio this week.
“And that ought to be a chilling reminder because, aside from blowing themselves up, which is uh, of course, not about small weapons,” she continued. “These people used the kinds of weapons that are still available in the United States of America. And I think it ought cause us to have another consideration of sensible gun safety laws.”
Uh… does she even.. uh… know what it takes to legally acquire a machine gun in this country? Well, NRO lists the steps…
Pay a tax of $200, which in 1934 was worth over $3,500
Fill out a lengthy application to register your gun with the federal government
Submit passport photos
Get your chief law enforcement official to sign your application
Wait for the results of your background check to come back
A violation of the national firearms act results in a felony punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison, a $100,000 fine, and forfeiture of the individual’s right to own or possess firearms in the future.
Moreover, because the 1986 Hughes Amendment made it illegal for non-dealers to own automatic weapons that were manufactured after May 19th 1986, the cost of the guns Schakowsky fears is astronomical. You want an AK-47 of the sort used in Paris? You’re looking at spending at least $10,000.
Maybe the opportunistic sow ought to shut her yap before she embarrasses herself any further.
Oh, and we want to also gently remind Schakowsky that the not-so-dearly departed Awlaki wasn’t the one pointing out the alleged “ease” of getting guns in the United States. That was the pig-fucking dick weasel Adam Gadahn. In her froth-flecked zeal to shred Americans’ Second Amendment rights, Schakowsky couldn’t even get her camel humpers right.
And if you want to hear this sow squeal, you can listen here.
