Always prepared to offer anti-gun amendments, whether they're relevant to a bill or not.
9. Diana DeGette (D.-Colo.):
A reliable fixture at press conferences on any anti-gun initiative. Wants to hold gun manufacturers liable for the illegal use of firearms.
8. Mike Castle (R.-Del.):
Consistent sponsor of anti-gun legislation. One of only six House Republicans to vote against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that restricted reckless anti-gun lawsuits.
7. Anthony Weiner (D.-N.Y.):
Promotes New York City gun laws (among the most restrictive in the nation) as a model for the rest of the country.
6. Carolyn McCarthy (D.-N.Y.):
Sponsor of unsuccessful legislation to drastically expand the "assault weapon" ban of 1994-2004 to cover even more guns. Gun-control supporters claimed a crime wave would ensue after the ban's demise, but violent crime instead fell to a 30-year low.
5. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.):
A reliable vote for anti-gun legislation, and poised to put anti-gun bills at the top of the agenda if she becomes Speaker.
4. Jim Moran (D.-Va.):
One of only four representatives who voted against requiring that, in the event that a prospective firearm purchaser is rejected by the national background check system, the government must tell the person why.
3. Zoe Lofgren (D.-Calif.):
Always ready to lead the "Million Moms" on the House floor in favor of any anti-gun legislation, no matter how extreme.
2. Henry Waxman (D.-Calif.):
Like the child who can’t understand the meaning of "no," Waxman is the congressman who most frequently turns to the GAO to conduct studies designed to support "gun control" schemes he knows do not have support in Congress.
1. John Conyers (D.-Mich.):
The only current House member who voted for the Gun Control Act of 1968, has been a vocal opponent of 2nd Amendment rights ever since.
Top 10 Anti-Gun Senators
10. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio)
Consistently the only Republican to speak in favor of anti-2nd Amendment legislation on the Senate floor.
9. Jack Reed (D.-R.I.)
The most vocal opponent on the Senate floor of congressional legislation to prevent lawsuits against firearms manufacturers based on the actions of criminals.
8. John Kerry (D.-Mass.)
Accepted a shotgun as a campaign gift from union officials, even though it would have been banned under a bill he cosponsored.
7. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D.-N.Y.)
Though just in her first term as an elected official, she campaigned for gun control while First Lady, advocating gun owner licensing, handgun registration and the retention by the federal government of records on lawful purchasers of firearms.
6. Frank Lautenberg (D.-N.J.)
Despite government studies showing that fewer than 1% of criminals get their guns from gun shows, Lautenberg sponsored legislation to run gun shows out of business.
5. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.)
Sponsor of the much-vaunted assault-weapon ban of 1994-2004. Despite the ban's having been found to have been misdirected and irrelevant to crime, Feinstein said she wished for a stronger law, one that would say, "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn [your firearms] all in." Feinstein carried a handgun for her own protection in California.
4. Barbara Boxer (D.-Calif.)
Sponsor of bills to ban compact handguns, such as those commonly carried for protection, by making the legality of their manufacture in the U.S. contingent upon the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' (BATFE) regulation permitting the same type of firearm to be imported. BATFE uses regulatory authority over firearms importation arbitrarily and, some say, illegally. Boxer hoped the BATFE would do the same with U.S.-made firearms.
3. Ted Kennedy (D.-Mass.)
A generation ago, this liberal lion sponsored legislation to ban and otherwise restrict handguns. He hasn’t let up a bit since.
2. Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.)
Minority whip is top anti-gun activist in his party’s Senate leadership and a reliable activist for anti-gun legislation in his own right.
1. Charles Schumer (D.-N.Y.)
Sponsor of legislation to ban firearms as "assault weapons," to ban hunting, recreational, practice and defensive ammunition as "armor piercing," and to impose a waiting period on handgun sales. The member of Congress who most seeks publicity for himself on gun-control issues.
These people are Anti-Gun, and want to take our freedoms away.
So please remember when its voting time, just like John Kerry(MA).
