Current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is a controversial figure in American politics right now. To be fair, she’s been controversial to political conservatives for years, but it seems that more and more people who think of themselves as moderates are finding her controversial, too.
Now, I’m not referring to her personal issues that have come up in news programs. I’m sticking purely to her statements as a politician and the positions that she has taken on a variety of issues.
But we’re going to focus on what she has to say about guns here (this is Prepared Gun Owners, after all).
As you may know, Pelosi and company have been pushing hard for gun control on the way to outright gun confiscation. She may say otherwise when it’s politically expedient, but it’s clear to anyone who has been paying attention to that issue.
To make it worse, though, Pelosi and her associates aren’t even being honest about guns. It’s deplorable. Emily Miller writes,
In the effort to get [a Federal assault weapon ban] passed, Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made some grand claims, which they called “facts,” about the previous ban on rifles leading to decreasing crime. But those facts don’t appear to be backed up by evidence.
“Supporters of the bans are calling their assertions ‘facts,’ in an effort to mislead the public,” Lawrence Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) told The Epoch Times. “Many of the Democratic Members of Congress were purposefully misleading in their assertions that the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban reduced crime. This level of willful ignorance would be comical if the effects of what they are trying to do wasn’t so blatantly unconstitutional.”
“The number of murders with rifles actually increased slightly when the ban went into effect,” John R Lott Jr., the president of Crime Research, told The Epoch Times, referring to data from the FBI’s annual release of reports from law enforcement agencies on homicides by weapon type.
You’d think that she’s afraid that the truth might prevent people from supporting gun control.
Either that, or she hopes that more people get killed. After all, that’s what happened when the ban was in place before.
The lies are horrible, and the American people deserve honesty from their representatives, not lies and political games.
This Congress needs to read the Constitution. Second Amendment. These idiots are the main reason we need term limits. I bet everyone of them has armed security with them , where ever they go.
Phil – a big part of the problem is that too many CONgress critters have read the Constitution – and choose to ignore the parts they don’t like, such as the 2nd Amendment. At least two of them admitted on record that they don’t care what that old outdated document says.That alone should be enough for them to be charged (impeached) for malfeasance and failure to uphold their oath of office
Spot on. But their model for all of this goes back to Obama and Holder who were very selective about which laws would be upheld and whose rights were “pre-eminent”. Members of the current administration appear to be absolutely faithful to these nihilist doctrines which, as you point out are a violation of their oaths of office.
We need to clean house and get rid of all of them. They are all liars and as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
Two thumbs up 👍 👍 👌
Sure they do! And live behind 🧱 walled property! And OUR TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR IT! GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AGAIN.
Yeah and the SOB of a FAUX president biden is the leader of these POS who can’t read the Constitution, all as we have in ths FAX presidents admonistration are nothing more then TYREASONOUS TRAITORS who should be brought up on these charges opf TREASOn, they are DESTROYING “WE THE PEOPLES AMERICA”. I served our country in the US ARMY, and unlike these so called POS COMMUNIST DEMOOCRAT RATSR MY oath to the CONSTITUTION AND TO AMERICA has never EXPIRED> USARMY= UNCLE SAM AIN’T RELEASED ME YET.
Mr. Durkin, you are 100% CORRECT!! The vast majority of these LEFTIST, COMMUCRAT MORONS have the benefit of gov’t agency protection details, and some like Komrade Peloski..actually hire what amount to MERCS as their “Personal Private Security” details. So…YES…they are surrounded 24/7/365 by lots of folks with GUNS!!
You are 100%CORRECT sir. The LEFTIST, COMMUCRAT MORONS not only benefit from gov’t ” agency” protection details, but some like Komrade Peloski, actually contract what amount to MERCS, provided by “Private Military/Security Contractors” as protective details as well. So…these BLATANT HYPOCRITES are surrounded 24/7/365 by MANY, MANY professional soldiers in business suits, with HUGE FIREPOWER.
Does not matter as when the FBI is totally compromised and corrupt there is NO one to trust with any legal investigations.
Constitution? DemoSocialists don’t need no steenkin’ Constitution!
Every anti-gunner should be prohibited from owning a firearm or ammo. Start with Congress.
How can a ban on certain rifles deter crimes , most CRIMES are commented with hand guns a rifle is very hard to conceal ….
These people who make these outlandish claims have never fired a gun.
they try to sound like they are yery knowledgable but they can’t even tell you what that little thingy on the front of an AR 15 is for> Everybody knows it’s a bird warning device??
I had always assumed that “THINGY” was an anti detection device. To hide us from ‘big brother’. ..I am really disappointed to have to finally face the truth!!!! Thank You
Yes, I agree…truth should be the over riding issue on Guns…I am an avid gun shooter and owner myself of rifles, shotguns and handguns…truth must be meted out by both political parties though… Democrat and Republican both are guilty of lies in the issue of guns…as well as every other issue in politics
It’s just to disarm to rush in the great reset by 2030, when you will own nothing and be happy!

To all the vet’s out there pay attention vote are just get ready to speak fluent Chinese or Russian my father one of the great generation we both were Navy . This man god rest his soul told me in 1965 son beware communism won’t take over this country from the outside in but it will take over from the inside out .Damn I wish he was wrong Navy pilot’s usually got it rite .God bless America pay attention Americans .
Keep the powder dry, the guns clean and ready. Prepare to water the tree of Liberty, with the blood of the patriots !
Cording to supreme court we are allowed to protect ourselves and we will do so and you will not come in and take our guns away just because you were scared of Americans having their guns you need to go after criminals that you were letting back out on the streets committing crimes and letting them back out and come any more crimes those are the criminals you need to go after not a law biting citizens that are allowed to protect themselves.
BITCH, BITCH, BITCH LIKE FOX NEWS! NOTHING EVER GETS DONE BY ANYONE IN CONGRESS. ALL I HEAR IS YAK, YAK, YAK. IT’S ALL A BIG GAME TO MAKE MONEY AND TO GET THEIR NAMES IN PUBLIC FOR VOTES ON BOTH SIDES. GET OUT AND VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE!
YOU PEOPLE MAY AS WELL WATCH WAREHOUSE 13 OR ANCIENT ALIENS OR RESIDENT ALIEN INSTEAD OF FAKE NEWS. AT LEAST WE KNOW IT’S JUST A MOVIE.
Bottom line.they know the laws they just plain and simple want them gone so they can finish the reset.the un has been pushing it sense the 70’s.
They purposely lie to the sheeple they are going to slaughter
Doesn’t matter what the facts are, they can’t control us if we have weapons to defend ourselves with. That’s the bottom line. That’s why they need weapon control. This is a over throw of our country and no one is doing a damn thing about it. If I was young again like when I was drafted, thing would be different. But iam not and the younger men aren’t men anymore. To busy playing games and crying about what hurts their little feelings. Now imagine telling the government that when they tell you , your going to nam butter cup, suck it up and pray. Did I get the chance to say. no – I can’t. It’s woke and we dont like that. Turn off the internet tho and see how they cry.
ANY time the Fed tries to interfere in our 2nd Amendment rights, take away our self-protection, the actual effect is that intentional deaths, or ‘accidental’ deaths during other felonies, INCREASE!
Conversely, when we go the OTHER way, and REQUIRE citizens to possess guns, as in Kennesaw, Ga, not only did deaths due to assaults decrease, so did OTHER felonies and misdemeanors! WHY? Because felons, thugs, and murderers do NOT like their victims to be ARMED! This makes their predations WAAAAAY too DANGEROUS!
In my employment, ido service in Walmart, Target and CVS. Their stockrooms are predominantly filled with boxes of goods manufactured in China. Brandon’s solar cells and windmills are sourced in other countries influenced by China. The regime in control of the US can’t hand us over to China if we are well armed,and Hunter and “the big guy” won’t get their cut. Disarm the population and the commies will steal OUR American Dream. Stay armed, buy ammo.
By now, even the most Nieve American can see the Left is composed of Liars, Manipulators, Pedophiles, Traitors, Crooks, and Thieves. Something most of us knew for a long time.
They are drunk on power and will lie to keep it ……………..
Anyone with half a brain knows that most crimes are committed with handguns …
The flaming paradox is that horrifying criminal events which motivate people to buy firearms to protect themselves and others simultaneously stimulate the lunatic left to propose laws which will disarm only people who obey the law and will make criminal violence safer for the incarcerated felons they keep releasing and the illegal alien drug peddlers for whom they’ve opened the borders, the ones they armed during Fast and Furious. For six years the Progressives have been persecuting Trump – but not Eric The Gun Pusher Holder who is anti-gun except when he’s the dealer.
Pelosi is the WORST POLITICIANS IN OUR CONGRESS AND HISTORY! She best to resign before she get the FIRING SQUAD! BECAUSE THAT WHAT SHE WORTH! Just as SCHIFF WHO PAST DUE LIFE IN PRISION AND SCHUMER ALSO NEED TO TAKE HIS PLACE IN FRONT OF A FIRING SQUAD! I could go on about these DEMOCRAT WHO HAS CALL FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!
Very true we must elect the wrong people to do the best for the Country, not China . What about term limit, it seems to me that Our positions can’t make it in the real world. Who else can give themself a raise and get all the benefits is only for them. Insider stocks is leagal for them but ileagal for us. They have become Traiders to their Country
I, keep asking the Question. YA’LL SEEN ENOUGH YET? THE WHOLE GLOBAL CABAL, demoncRATs and RINOS, ALL SATAN’S DEMON SPAWN MINIONS DESERVE DIRT NAPS. YA’LL KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, GIT R DUN! NCSWIC,WWG1WGA, P.A.N.I.C. LGB,FJB President Trump’s still my President. Yahweh save our poor souls, Amen. I’m not a BOT nor a Spammer. I’m a American Veteran,Trucker and GreatGrandpa.
Short and sweet….who’s fault is it that this crap has gotten this far? This ShT should of stopped in 2009, when they were around 20% into killing America, when we woke up,, but here we are in 2022and they are a good 88% maybe over 90% into killing America. So tell me really who’s fault is it? If you say Elites, UN, Cabal, Politician’s, you don’t want to look at the whole picture or admit it. Our old folk all the way back to the beginning would roll over in their Graves if they could see us now. So who’s fault is it? Just asking.
Good some one finely wised up to the drunk old bat ! Now everyone needs to band together and get rid of this stupid drunken old bat ! She and a few more has been nothing but trouble ever sence they been up there ! Now let’s get rid of the worst of them !!
Nearly anything can become an assault weapon; hammer, screwdriver, baseball bat, piece of pipe, brick or rock and even a frozen bottle of water. You idiots in congress need to get your heads on straight.
For those who do not understand the meaning of ‘RIGHTS’ , we need to make it clear once and for all:
The 2nd Amendment does not apply to semi-auto rifles, nor does it apply to bolt action rifles, pistols, or revolvers. The 2nd Amendment RESTRICTS GOVERNMENT. The technology of the firearm is irrelevant.The restrictions on government remain the same, regardless of the firearm. The Second Amendment was not written to grant permission for citizens to own and bear firearms. It forbids government interference in the right to keep and bear arms, period. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be Infringed.
This also applies to other ‘Rights’. They are not granted, they stipulate inherent rights that the government may not prohibit.
If people are that STUPID. Then let the followers of this bumbling idiot have their guns taken away.
One TRUE statistic, which the Dems ignore, is that when Kennesaw, Ga, enacted a law REQUIRING citizens to possess arms, robberies and assaults plummeted, not as was ballyhooed, would cause a horrible raise in deaths! Not all people are comfortable with guns in the house, and could get exemptions for this, but the POSSIBILITY of guns in the households was enough to stymie many criminals! Yet, many Dem-led cities with stringent gun laws have seen continual rises in gun-related deaths, as in Chicago, Baltimore, etc! These FACTS the Dems can’t deny, but they try!
nancy once was a gold mine / oil well of political information…. now she is what those industries call a DRY-HOLE !
