(Feel like a slave to the federal government YET? Are you broke? Have you lost your home, job, business? The 1st and 2nd Amendments are the last bastions of freedom for sovereigns. Democrats Carolyn McCarthy and Robert Brady want those too.)
“NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE” – Saul Alinsky
I’ve been keeping on eye on the clock since the Giffords shooting to see how long it would take for some form of gun control legislation (that was probably written by a left wing think tank) to be introduced. What did it take; 26 hours? And all because of a liberal leftwing moonbat with no sense of personal responsibility decided it was a constructive idea to gun down a bunch of people to prove whatever delusional point he was suffering from, (or was he a liberal leftwing moonbat?).
How about we have gun control for registered democrats and any other granola eating moonbat, and just leave everybody else alone. Better yet, let’s move all the kumbaya leftists and democrats to Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Massachusetts and let them fend for themselves. We would only need a few states as more and more Americans open their eyes and ears, do the math, and flee the Democratic party and blue states.
Carolyn McCarthy readies gun control bill
One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.
“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.
Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.
Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.
McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.
McCarthy’s spokesman confirmed the legislation will target the high-capacity ammunition clips the Arizona gunman allegedly used in the shooting, but neither he or the congresswoman offered any further details.
“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass,” McCarthy said. “I don’t want to give the NRA – excuse the pun – the ammunition to come at me either.”
Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.
Another vocal supporter for gun control, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, told POLITICO that he hopes “something good” can come from the Arizona tragedy – perhaps discussion on a new assault weapon ban, sales at gun shows and tracing measures.
And how about Robert Brady’s grand infringement of free speech at it’s best? “A federal crime to use imagery or language intended to threaten or incite violence against a Member of Congress or federal official“, and presidential level protection for the very criminals derailing the country whilst they go about their business turning America into a third world banana republic. Bobby obviously has no clue how many Americans are completely AWAKE AND PRESENT, and how many more are waking up each and every day as they lose everything they have spent their lives working for. Bob also does not understand that the hate speech is coming from his very own political base, the left – NOT conservatives; and yet, we are vocally protesting for their right to speak their minds. Imagine that? Can someone send Judge Napolitano over to Bob’s house to explain the Constitution to him?
Bob; you are a frakkin’ dumbass, a fascist, and you need to find a real job creating something, not controlling something.
Brady Will Offer Bill to Expand Protections for Members
Rep. Robert Brady is trying to put new Members and their spouses at ease by introducing legislation that would make it a federal crime to use imagery or language intended to threaten or incite violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.
“The spouses are in an uproar,” the Pennsylvania Democrat told CNN on Sunday. “They are panicking.”
He said he plans to introduce the legislation on the first day the House reconvenes. It would expand protections now afforded to the president to other civil servants.
And how much is that going to cost the corporate owned moos to protect the very criminals that are destroying our country? Sure does look like the congresscritters realize that America has woken up to their pillaging ways. If you still believe that Congresswoman Giffords was the intended target, you might want to read about the federal judge that was putting a kink in Obama’s wealth redistribution groove when it comes to nationalizing (seizure of 401(k)s) retirement accounts. (Or this: AYFKM?: Ready To Have Your 401(k) Seized To Bailout Union Pensions? or this: The Race Is On For Your 401(k)) What? You did not realize that there is $8 Trillion dollars sitting in retirement accounts ripe for the picking by Obama and the Federal Reserve? Those bankers gotta have their pound of flesh, AND this government needs a fresh transfusion to keep the ponzi scheme going.
Brady specifically criticized former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s online “hit list” of Members whom the Republican wanted defeated in 2010. Giffords was on that list, which used crosshairs on a map to identify districts to target during the midterm elections.
Members “are as out there as much as anybody else, and we are trying to criminalize behavior that puts bull’s-eyes over Members of Congress and their districts,” Brady said. “We’re going to make that a federal crime.
“All we’re doing is trying to protect ourselves and protect our staff members,” he continued. “I’m not going to hide or not go to my events or public events just because of this incident.”
I dragged this out of the vault for all those lefties that still don’t understand the true spirit of the 2nd Amendment, and why every American should be required to own a gun.
I have my own ideas about who the main target was in the Arizona shootings and I’m not alone in my thinking, I see.
It is so easy to visualize a greedy entity salivating over the retirement funds of the American people, and then concocting a scenario whereby they can create a false reason to eliminate a Federal Judge who would be a stone in their path to this theft. At the same time eliminate a moderate vote in the congress that had already voted against Pelosi and her ultra liberal goals.
I hope the people don’t rush to judgement here and heed the cry of the crazies who advocate gun control. After they confiscate all our weapons, their itch to kick our doors in will come next.
Let’s not cut off our noses to spite our faces while there is still a very thourough investigation needed. Who financed this nut case? He wasn’t gainfully employed was he? Funds had to come from somewhere to keep him afloat and provide his armament. From his ostings on the internet, it doesn’t seem he is entirely lucid and perhaps his associates should be investigated, before we jump into any kind of legislation.
P,S. In the meantime why don’t we get back to the regularly schedule duties of congress? Why hold up voting on anything else while all and sundry are bloviating and basking in their 15 minutes of fame? This should not be used as an excuse to hold up the vote on the repeal of Obamacare.
I am just struck by the parallels between the aristocracy in France in the late 1700’s and today; aren’t you?
So true, Diamond.
First Estate – Obama, Michelle, and possibly Soros and his group?
Second Estate – Congress, Scotus, Richer Class
Third Estate – I guess you would include all the rest of us in this, even the rabble.
The Third Estate in France were incensed about paying high taxes and seeing no benefit from them, while the other two estates were living high on the hog, and not caring about the pain of the Third Estate. In 1789 (I believe) there was a very poor harvest and the Third Estate were starving, which meant they were literally hungry not only in body but also in soul and spirit. They were rabid for liberty and equality and they rebelled.
Are we just waiting for our Robspierre?
Our pleas to congress and Obama are being ignored. Their answer is to screw the vise tighter to put us in our place.
Most of us are peace loving intelligent human beings, but there are a lot of Third Estaters who would not hesitate to become physical if a Robspierre would come along and foment a little trouble. (Or an agent prevocateur if one were needed.) This would give a dishonest First Estater a proclaimed reason to subjugate the country completely.
Something to think about, IMO. These are very volatile days, and it might not take much.
As I’ve said before, they will create some event to give them the reason to take guns away! The statements: ” a law targeting the high capacity ammo guns”…., ” no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammo…” Well now they want to do to the citizens of the country what California is already doing. When you’re using a semiautomatic handgun, it doesn’t matter how many rounds the magazine holds, a ten round magazine will kill you just as quick as one that holds 30 rounds. I’ve been saying, buy as much ammo as you can before they restrict it. It is my belief that this shooting spree was a government caused incident to cause a diversion, and create a reason to end the 2nd amendment.
When the bastards come for my guns, I will be happy to give them the ammunition first, and then the can pry them from my cold dead fingers.
Patriots once they take our means to protect ourselves, we will be ground under the boots of our communist masters in DC.
The left wing commie nut case in Arizona had an axe to grind with the congress woman, nothing more nothing less.
I find it repulsive that our President and MSM are making a bigger deal out of this then the Fort Hood shootings,and we all no why. Additionally their going to try and use the actions of a lunatic to side track the repeal of health care and to shove through a communist backed gun care bill.
Just think about life in the US when only Police Officers, the military and criminals have guns.
We be screwed!
Hmm…where have we seen this before? I think it was in 2008 when Bill Gwatney, the only state Democratic Party Chair still backing Clinton, was gunned down in his office by a man with whom he had no relationship who had just lost his job at Target. Makes sense doesn’t it? You live 50 miles away, and lose your department store job so you gun down the state party chair. Whatever.
And yes, it’s also a convenient poster child for the gun confiscators. Gun owners outnumber law enforcement, and everyone knows it, so that should be a fun one.
Though it may seem that the world is being run by sick greedy idiot douchebags, there are other forces at work in this world besides that of evil, and that is an encouraging thought.
Really, truly – I would like to see them try to confiscate guns. We all know there are a few lines in the sand – this is one of them. They haven’t tried it because they know they would not be able to without serious problems (I’m picking my words carefully).
And yes, the forces of good are at work and growing each day. 🙂
