Out On Limb: Matthews's 'Rising Star' Says No Right To Gun Down Classroom Of Kids In Under Minute
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/26/2013 4:18:25 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Chris Matthews featured her as a "rising star," someone who with more seasoning might someday entertain a presidential run. But newly-elected Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane came across as more of a not-ready-for-prime-time-deer-in-the-headlights.

Appearing on today's Hardball, Kane came out with this mind-boggler: "I think the people of Pennsylvania would accept a limit on the amount of clips. You know, I believe and I think a lot of people feel the same way that you don't have a right to go into a classroom and take down a class of children in under a minute." Really going out on a limb there, Kathleen!

‘Rising star’ in Pennsylvania goes out on limb: doesn’t believe people have a right to gun down a classroom of kids in under a minute. Ping to Today show list.

Would appreciate pings to any Pennsylvania lists.

Kathy should realize no one has the right to do it in under five minutes, ten minutes or an hour either, she’s no mental giant.

BUT you do have a right to kill 55 million unborn babies over the last 4 decades.

I’m curious, Attorney General Douchebag, who exactly says that such a right exists?

"I think the people of Pennsylvania would accept a limit on the amount of clips......"

Was this witch talking about the capacity of an individual magazine or about the quantity of magazines one is "allowed" to carry?

A few smarter 'rats are working on the banning of detachable magazines.

Stupid ho. I could kill more kids in less time by running over them with my car, so I assume she thinks I “have no right to have a car”??

I still think voter fraud is the only way this bimbo got elected.

She really is dumb as a box of rocks. Problem is, we’re saddled with this buffoon for 4 years.

Anyway, the good news is, she is so stupid and partisan that she is doing a fine job of marginalizing herself.

Conrado: I had never seen her before and was honestly shocked by how not ready she was for a national show. Matthews’s opening question was how he should address her: “General” or something else. She froze. It went downhill from there.

We should have a law against killing kids! I know, why not a law against killing anybody?

What should we call this bad act? I know, let's call it "murder". She IS a rising star....

LOL

You nailed that one. Her campaign was a joke, her public appearances were pathetic.

Like I said, the only thing that can explain her election is voter fraud.

And Hissy Chrissy is a PA resident, once upon a time a rino pubbie and now full blown RATZ propagandist. (If you get a chance, ask him about his brother Jimbo, who looks real good in an orange jump suite.)

He helped this airhead get elected. My guess is he did EVERYTHING he knew to help the girl out on his show. But, her porch lights were on and no one was home.

She and her ilk can ban all the “clips” they want and none of my standard capacity, 30 round AR “magazines” will be affected. I hope they introduce legislation in those terms so we can laugh about it later. LOL.

Chrissy would prefer that they suffer a longer ordeal. What kind of logic is that? And “rising star?” He has been out there for decades.

Believe it or not, once upon a time, Hissy Chrissy was a half rational and even reasonable guy.

Chrissy and his brother Jim were “good guys” to know in Montgomery County PA republican party circles.

Maybe its the water in DC, or his homo got the better of him, or something. But when he went round the bend, he didn’t half step, he doubled timed.

Unfortunate.

Can we give Philadelphia to NJ at least ?

We’ll lose a lot of history, but if you look around us - You’ll see that these people in the counties that you mentioned aren’t “The cradle of America” kinda folk anymore.

Just move the border inland a bit.

I’ll stop fantasizing now.

Certainly, and we can sweeten the pot. I say we throw in Chester as well ... all for free. Opps, I take that back. That was bad negotiating. The people in NJ are so f'n stupid, that they would pay us for Philadelphia. So for "ONE BILLION DOLLARS" we will give Philadelphia and Chester to NJ.

If we can limit the number of rounds in a firearm magazine, we can limit the number of pages in a Hustler magazine or limit the number of words per day a talking head on television can say. The same specious utilitarian logic that applies to the first case also applies to the other two.

While I think that Hustler is vile filth, and I don’t like some media commentators, I respect the First so much that I cannot start down the slippery slope of that kind of limitation. Either we all have freedom of speech or we do not. But we do, and it is an inalienable right, one that exists outside of and superior to the Constitution itself. So is the right to keep and bear arms.

In the context of free speech, if an edition of Hustler can have 5 pages, it can have 500 pages. Do champions of free speech really want to defend the question of who needs 500 pages of Hustler? No, they would rightly object to the question and the premise behind asking it. What is so hard to understand about a right that “shall not be infringed”?

Until I was 12 I lived in Folsom. After that, until I was 18 I lived in Boothwyn. The Chester I remember, and we have to go back to the 1970's/Early 80's was a hellhole. Now, Chester-Upland School District is one of the worst academically performing school in the commonwealth. Crime in Chester is off the charts. The city and the school district are broke and in debt - typical for a Democratic controlled city.

I get the impression that all of the good people in Chester left long ago or are unable to move because they are cowering in their homes in fear.

Geez, I moved away from Boothwyn (Chichester) when I was 18 to go to college and I only occasionally visited until my parents immigrated to FL. Chichester wasn't anything close to Chester, but still a rough place to grow up.

***”I think the people of Pennsylvania would accept a limit on the amount of clips. ****

Let’s see, these people must think that the first ten shots are all misses and people are only killed with the bottom number in a thirty round magazine.

In the first three shots with a 9 mm in Tucson, Gabby Giffords was wounded, another wounded and Judge Roll killed, then others killed and wounded.

Now, if the shooter had used a seven shot .45ACP instead of the 9 MM, the first two would have been killed and Judge Roll still killed, then at least four more probably killed.

If the shooter had used a .357 Mag revolver, the same three would have been killed, then three others probably killed, then he would have dropped his revolver and pulled out his second hidden revolver and piled up more dead.

Magazine capacity limit is just a way to get their anti-gun foot in the door.

It has always been about handguns. Assault rifles are just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.

Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.

John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.

Charles Whitman, killed 14, wounded 32 others mostly with a bolt action 6mm hunting rifle. Also used a shotgun and an m1 carbine.

Medgar Evers, shot with a 5 shot 1917 bolt action Enfield rifle.

Martin Luther King, shot with a 4 shot Remington 760 pump action Gamemaster rifle.

Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.

George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl revolver.

Howard Johnsons shooter killed nine, wounded thirteen with a 4 shot RUGER .44 mag Deerslayer rifle.

Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.

Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.

Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 revolver.

What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban all of them.

Well, she is “dumb as a box of rocks”. But no, she didn’t get elected by voter fraud. What does that tell you about your neighbors?

I’m beginning to learn, having been away from the state for 20+ years, that I really shouldn’t leave Wayne.

Everywhere I go are dems, fresh from NJ and NY and ready to ruin the countryside, and call the police everytime they see an NRA sticker on a pickup.

Last that I heard was Sunoco was shuttering their oil refineries. They are getting out of the refining business. They were trying to sell the refineries (two of them), but no takers.

I can remember the days when Sun Shipbuilding was shuttered in Chester. I recall stories from my father when he was a kid how they would churn Liberty ships out of Chester in WWII.

In my heart, I try hard to believe you aren’t right. But deep in my heart, I have to admit, in the dark of night, that you may well be right.

And that makes me want to cry.

So, the voter fraud scenario helps keep me sane. Its a lie, I know, but its a good lie, at least for me.
