“We will make your sign legitimate shortly”

Democratic Austin City Council member and potential next mayor Mike Martinez admitted during a speech that the Obama administration’s long term gun control agenda is focused on banning firearms altogether.
Pointing out a sign held by a protester which read, “stop gun ban!,” Martinez remarked, “someone needs to inform him that there is no gun ban currently, but because of the work we’re doing here today, we will make your sign legitimate shortly, so you hang on to that.” The crowd cheered as Martinez made his vow.
The event, which was was hosted in association with Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo who also gave a speech, took place on Saturday and was sponsored in part by Texas Gun Sense, a group pushing for stricter gun laws which would include universal background checks, limiting magazine capacities of semi-auto assault rifles and preventing guns being put in the hands of armed security guards on school campuses.
The man holding the sign, known as “Texas George,” continually had his free speech impeded by pro-gun control demonstrators who repeatedly blocked his sign, according to reports.
“Police had to step in for crowd control as speakers took the stage and the confrontation heated up,” reports KHOU.com.
Organizer Hilary Rand with Moms Demand Action claimed that Second Amendment advocates were “perpetrating things that are just not true,” adding, “Nobody wants to ban guns here we’re just trying talking about coming up with sensible solutions that can help make us safer, we’re talking about strengthening the laws that we currently have and creating new laws that will help us enforce those laws we currently have, nobody wants to change the constitution.”
However, Martinez’ assertion that a total gun ban would be made “legitimate” confounds this rhetoric and underscores the fact that tighter gun control restrictions and gun registrations are merely stepping stones to a British-style all out ban on firearms.
These rare glimpses into the true guiding force behind the gun control agenda occasionally rear their head during public speeches.
Back in 1995, current Attorney General Eric Holder called for authorities to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
In the same year, current California Senator and gun control pioneer Dianne Feinstein told 60 Minutes, “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up [every gun]… Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in.”
While Democrats are admitting their overarching agenda is to ban firearms, the federal government is simultaneously arming itself to the teeth with the purchase of over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in addition to thousands of fully automatic assault rifles.
The KHOU report below repeats rhetoric from the organizers that the rally was “not about banning guns completely.” Apparently, Mike Martinez didn’t get the memo.
