Communist Senator Threatens Gun Confiscation
Earlier this month, elected officials in Illinois held a town hall meeting over whether or not to enact fines for individuals who keep commonly owned semi-automatic firearms in their homes.
The meeting quickly devolved with Democratic state Sen. Julie Morrison ultimately threatening a full-fledged firearm confiscation.
Initially, a local gun owner, obviously and justifiably unhappy with the idea, challenged the fines proposed by Illinois Senate Bill 107 — noting that its purpose was to “to take away semi-automatic firearms.”
Morrison responded, claiming that the legislation wasn’t about confiscating firearms, rather, it was meant to deter future sales of said firearms.
The man shot back that it was more than a simple sales deterrent, referencing the bill’s fines against those who already own semi-automatic firearms.
“You want me to turn them over to the state police unless I pay a fine for each firearm and register them, then I get to keep them,” he said.
The constituent continued and stumped Morrison in the process: “If I get to keep it — if I pay a fine and register it — then, how dangerous is it in the first place and why do you need to ban it all?”
Talk about a mic drop moment.
Instead of Morrison simply cutting her losses and moving on, she doubled-down in an utterly tyrannical tirade.
“Well, you just maybe changed my mind,” she said. “Maybe we won’t have a fine at all, maybe it’ll just be a confiscation and we won’t have to worry about paying the fine.”
