What we need to keep in mind as multiple anti gun bills are introduced in the House, are planned to be introduced in the Senate, and plans being put in place by the White House is that these plans are not for disarming everyone in the US, only your average citizens.
Lawmakers, the very rich and movie stars can all afford to hire armed protection (or have it provided by the tax payers) to be with them all of the time. The schools their children attend are guarded by armed guards, despite their calls that we need to keep guns out of schools, even if they are in the hands of trained individuals.
Some of these lawmakers even go so far as to use weapons for self defense themselves as they call for you to be disarmed.
Dianne Feinstein is set to introduce a sweeping assault weapons ban in the Senate later this month, but why don’t we take a look at this testimony she gave to Congress in 1995 (less than a year after she helped push through the first assault weapons ban).
Democratic senator Harry Reid actually opposed the extension of the first assault weapons ban (although it would have never passed the completely Republican controlled Congress then either) and has been somewhat quiet on the issue this time around, but as a major player in the Democratic party you have to believe he is involved in the current conversation to control guns.
In this video from 2010 Reid says he carried a gun with him everywhere he went when he worked for the Nevada Gaming Commission.
Of course nowadays they may not still carry their guns as they can easily enjoy the benefits of armed guards.
