The microphone remained live following a committee meeting in Trenton, New Jersey, last Thursday and captured comments from three anti-gun Democrats boldly proclaiming their purposes and prejudices:
We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate....
They [gun owners] don’t care about the bad guys. All they want to do is have their little guns and do whatever they want with them.
After reviewing the recording on May 9, the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs said in an e-mail that the voices came from Senator Linda R. Greenstein, who represents the 14th District; Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham of the 31st District, who is the Majority Whip; and Senator Loretta Weinberg from the 37th District, who is the Senate Majority Leader.
Weinberg was elected in 2005 and was selected by New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine as his running mate in 2009 in the election they lost to present Governor Chris Christie. Corzine is best known as the man who committed “the crime of the century” when his investment firm, MF Global, collapsed spectacularly in October 2011, costing his investors $1.6 billion and causing more than 25,000 bankruptcies among his clients.
One does not need to begin the exposure of intentions to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens with this faux pas committed on Thursday. One can start back in 1976 when Pete Shields, the founder of Handgun Control, Inc. — now known as the Brady Campaign — said:

The first problem is to slow down the number of handguns … in this country.
The second problem is to get handguns registered.
The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition … totally illegal.
Or one could begin the gun control conversation with this from Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in 1995 when she revealed in an interview on 60 Minutes:
If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban — picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. American, turn ‘em all in! — I would have done it.
