“Confiscate, Confiscate, Confiscate”

From ANJRPC. I’m forced to swipe their whole release because they don’t provide links:

NJ SENATORS’ TRUE VIEW OF GUN OWNERS REVEALED BY HOT MICROPHONE FOLLOWING YESTERDAY’S HEARING 

Call the Senate Majority Office Immediately to Express Your Outrage

And Demand That Monday’s Bill Package be Held   

An astute person listening to the official audio recording of yesterday’s Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee hearing noticed that the official recording continued following conclusion of the hearing.  The discussion that was caught, apparently among several senators and staff, is outrageous, and reveals legislators’ true view of gun owners.

A YouTube video with an excerpt of that recording has been posted here.  The following lines can be heard in the recording:

“We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

“They [gun owners] want to keep the guns out of the hands of the bad guys, but they don’t have any regulations to do it.”

They don’t care about the bad guys.  All they want to do is have their little guns and do whatever they want with them.”

“That’s the line they’ve developed.” 

The discussion appears to be among Senator Loretta Weinberg (D37), Senator Sandra Cunningham (D31), Senator Linda Greenstein(D14), and at least one member of Senate Democratic staff.

This discussion can also clearly be heard at the end of the official audio recording, beginning at 1:52:30, currently available here (find Thursday, May 9 from the menu, then click “listen”). It is possible that the official recording will be sanitized following release of this alert, and the official YouTube video could be deleted, so be sure to listen to it promptly.

The discussion reveals absolute contempt for the Second Amendment and those who exercise it, as well as complete ignorance of the fact that gun rights organizations like ANJRPC have long advocated for clear and specific legislation punishing criminals who misuse firearms, instead of misguided legislation (like the bills currently being pushed by Senate Democrats) that demonizes hardware.  Senator Loretta Weinberg is the chief proponent of the anti-gun legislation being moved through the Senate.

In advance of Monday’s full Senate floor vote, please immediately call AND fax the Senate Majority Office, tell them you are outraged by the misguided, disparaging, and clueless comments of those pushing the anti-gun bill package, and demand that Senate Democratic leadership hold the entire package of anti-gun bills currently scheduled for consideration by the full Senate on Monday, May 13.

You know what would help prevent gun owners from always being paranoid that gun control activists and politicians were after their guns? Not actually being after our guns. Just because your paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.

    What part of felon=no gun rights is hard for these imbeciles to understand?

    • Archer says:

      They do understand that. Why do you think they push so hard to make everything a felony?

    • uppity says:

      As soon as you agree that _some people_ or _those people_ should have their rights restricted you set yourself up to eventually become one of _those people_. Anyone who isn’t in jail should have the right to own as many guns of whatever type they desire.

      “Felon=No gun rights” is a losers game and the gun grabbers know it. It’s about time gun owners caught on.

      • MPH says:

        Especially when sneaking into a movie is now a felony (search for “felony movie sneak”).

    • Kristophr says:

      What part of they could care less about felons is hard for you to understand?

      Felons with guns a re a mere road hazard. If the ruling elite is bothered by them, the King will send some of his men out to kill a bunch of them.

      Angry peasants with guns bring down the State. The legislator from NJ knows exactly what she is doing when she says “confiscate, confiscate, confiscate”. Her only error was allow us peasants to overhear her.

  2. Archer says:

    I prefer to think that if they demonstrably ARE out to get you, you’re not being paranoid.

    In the same vein:
    – I wouldn’t claim that Polish Jews in the early 1940s were being “paranoid” if they jumped at every knock on the door.
    – I wouldn’t claim that an escaped slave who fled to the North in the early 1800s was being “paranoid” if he/she got a little nervous at unknown white folks asking about him/her by name.
    – I wouldn’t claim that a Spanish non-Catholic in the early 1500s was being “paranoid” if they refused to openly discuss their beliefs, or lied about them.

    If you’re convinced they’re out to get you when they’re not, THAT’S paranoia. If by all accounts they actually are, you’re not being paranoid.

    I can tell you that this attitude is not just restricted to NJ. Ive seen it in PA.

  4. Beanbott says:

    This needs to be spread around and picked up by Drudge, Fox, Washington Times, etc. Again, we hear their scornful disdain for our cherished freedoms and their true, dark desires spoken aloud when they think no one is listening. They need to own these comments for what they are.

    Christie must be reminded that signing anything cooked up by NJ dems caught openly discussing confiscation will ruin his chances with primary voters in other states. I hope that the Senate vote and the recent NRA convention, among other things, will help him make the right choice.

  5. Rob Crawford says:

    Can someone get the actual audio?

  6. beatbox says:

    I did an noise reduction in Audacity, and after that, to me it sounds like “What they think the bill does is gonna confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

    • P.M. says:

      Hmm… That’s different, beatbox. Worth pinning it down. Anyone else?

    • Andy B. says:

      I don’t know if you’re right or wrong, beatbox, but hat’s off to anyone who seeks the truth rather than just accepting a story because it’s convenient.

      If you and Audacity are right, someone better do something about this before lots of us make fools of all of us.

    • Sebastian says:

      Feel free to publish your enhancement if you think it could clarify things.

    • TS says:

      It is more plausible that this is what she said. We tend to be the only ones who use the “confiscate” word, and it’s turned into a dirty word for them. Even when they mean confiscation, they still won’t say that word. Look at Piers: “I love the Australia Plan– No one is taking away your guns.”

  7. Ed says:

    Confiscation today! Confiscation tomorrow! Confiscation forever!

    Bet the Jersey leftist doesn’t want to sound like that guy…

  8. bman says:

    Catchy headline, but I’ve also cleaned up the file in post and it is very clear that this isn’t what she is saying. While the source is very cluttered, I can clearly make out “I just think that it’s gonna confiscate, confiscate. It’s like they want to keep guns out of the hands of the bad guys, but they don’t have any regulations to do it.”
    “They don’t care about the bad guys, all they want to do is to have their little guns and do whatever they want with them. That’s the line they developed.”
    “Yeah.”

    I think she is mimicking something one of the senators/witnesses possibly said/inferred about confiscation (say around the 1:40-1:44 mark), but who knows. Also, this doesn’t mean that they don’t want confiscation, I just can’t draw that conclusion from this audio that was captured, nor from any of the testimony from the meeting (and I listened to the whole two hours).

  9. The thing about these three women is that they aren’t just some gun banning backbenchers. They are the Senate Majority Leader, the Senate Majority Whip, and the Senate Assistant Majority Leader. In other words, they are the people running things in the NJ Senate.
