Well, you can always count on democrats to tell you the truth eventually.
It takes them a while at times, but the truth always slips out.
Take Jerry Nadler for instance.
He was asked Wednesday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing about the true purpose of a democrat-proposed gun control bill, and he answered honestly.
North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop asked if any democrat disputed the fact that the bill was intended to ban weapons that are in “common use” in the country.
“Would anyone on the other side dispute that this bill would ban weapons that are in common use in the United States today?” he asked.
Nadler quickly replied: “That’s the point of the bill.”
When asked for clarification from Bishop, Nadler doubled down:
“Yes. The problem is that they’re in common use.”

Here’s how the exchange went as reported by the Daily Caller:
Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop asked House Democrats if they dispute the fact that the proposed legislation H.R. 1808, titled “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021,” bans firearms in “common use” throughout the country.
“Would anyone on the other side dispute that this bill would ban weapons that are in common use in the United States today?” Bishop asked.
“That’s the point of the bill,” Nadler replied.
I will never give up a single one of my guns, in fact, I'm buying more guns & ammunition. Their goal is a total gun ban & that doesn't work for me!

When pressed further on the issue, Nadler doubled down on his statement.
Here’s more on that exchange from the Blaze:
“To clarify, Mr. Chairman, you’re saying it is the point of the bill to ban weapons that are in common use in the United States today?” Bishop followed up.
“Yes, the problem is they are in common use,” Nadler said.
In District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court established the “common use” test to determine whether particular firearms are protected by the Second Amendment. The question the court uses to evaluate weapons bans is whether the targeted firearms are in “‘common use’ … for lawful purposes like self-defense.'”
Nadler may have just effectively killed the democrat bill:
Bishop: "Is there any Democrat that would dispute that this bill would ban weapons that are in common use?"
Nadler: "That's the point of the bill."
Bishop: "So it is the point of the bill to ban guns that are in common use?"
