The critical thing to remember when negotiating with Democrats and progressives, particularly in this administration, is that they lie. They lie without hesitation, and they lie while insisting that they are not lying. It is astonishing to watch. They will lie about health care and insist that their intent is to not take away your health plan or your doctor, and when you turn around, your doctor and health plan are no longer available. Did they just make a mistake or miscalculate? No, that was their objective all along, but they know that telling the truth would cause a strong push-back, so they lied to get you to acquiesce, and then they dropped the hammer.
This is precisely why the issue of gun control is so critical. The Obama administration, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of the Democrats will insist that they do not want to confiscate guns, they just want “common-sense” rules to alleviate gun violence. They are flat out lying, and the naive Republicans such as Susan Collins who let themselves be duped by these liars will find out soon enough that one “common-sense” rule will lead to another, then another, and soon enough the 2nd Amendment will be history. It is a long and well-practiced Democrat scam, and they just pulled another one on citizens in California that is outrageous and infuriating.
