Paul McCartney Gun Control: Beatle Voices Support For New Regulations
The Latin Times ^ | April 18, 2013 | Charlie Creitz

Posted on 04/19/2013 12:52:20 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Paul McCartney lent his voice to the gun control proponents this week. The former Beatle joined singer Tony Bennett's "Voices Against Violence" campaign which allows Americans supporter tougher new regulations on the gun control issue to text a number to receive contact information for their local legislator.

McCartney, a British citizen, is the latest celebrity to join Bennett's push for harsher gun control regulations. Gloria Estefan, Alec Baldwin, Rosie O'Donnell and Josh Groban are some of the other voices callers will hear in addition to Paul McCartney's plea that nobody has to "Live and Let Die" in his view.

"Tell [your] congressperson that you support common-sense laws that keeps guns out of the hands of the wrong people: Enough is enough, please add your voice to end gun violence," Paul McCartney's recording read.

Bennett himself was the subject of major criticism when he likened the United States to Nazi Germany because of the existence of the right to bear arms in the Constitution...

FUTB and FUPM. When did foreigners gain the right to dictate their beliefs to us? Do I go over there and shout at the Queen and bother the Prime Minister? Go back to your increasingly Muslim has-been island and leave us alone you old windbag!

So Tony Bennethinks thinks we are like Nazi Germany which had strict gun control, because we do not have gun control?

Sounds like Paul did too much “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” when he and John were writing and performing together. People who are not brain damaged know that it’s better to be armed than drugged up when a criminal starts a gunfight.

What McCartney fails to realize is that the 2nd Amendment keeps America strong and free.......strong enough to keep ourselves and our weaker allies from being overrun..........if not for the 2nd Amendment, McCartney would most likely be speaking Russian.

Instead of criticizing gun owners, he should be thanking them......

Interesting Gloria Estefan, part of a family of CUBAN immigrants, would push for this as well. Hey Gloria... how has gun control worked out for the people in YOUR native land???

We may be allies, now, but the last time they came for our guns, we kicked the British out once...and then did it again, for good measure.

Mind your manners in America, y'all don't own it any more.

"Tell [your] congressperson that you support common-sense laws that keeps guns out of the hands of the wrong people"

Funny thing is, no one disagrees with keeping the guns away from criminals and psychos.

Only the current laws being proposed are intended to take the guns away from EVERYONE (not just the 'wrong people')

Hey Paul McCartney: Gun control is so .... ♪"Yesterday"♪

Actually, it was yesterday, even before it was yesterday. Meaning that many years ago the whole concept of gun control was proved to be so flawed, it was ineffective. (Well, ineffective in reducing violent crime - obviously Dims eternally hope for terrible events like Newtown to make "gun control" effective ... at the ballot box.)

Foreigners who come here and inject themselves into our politics, ought to be kicked out. They and their entire extended family ought to be on a three or four-generation long probation, until they prove themselves worthy of the name, American.

Why do I fantasize about laws that have no basis in current law or tradition?... Because, imo, the entire legal system is going to be revamped after the looming domestic upheaval ahead, Father let it not be violent.

There’s more chance of it being fought on icebergs than being non-violent. Think about who we’re up against. The people who had no problem lighting Gov. Sarah Palin’s church on fire with women and children inside. People who have no problem with 50 million dead babies, including that abortion nightmare in Pennsylvania.. People who think the “Tea Baggers” ought to be rounded up and treated like European Jews under Hitler and Stalin. People who think that Pol Pot was onto something and Che Guevarra was a hero.

He’s talking about UK, I assume, because if he’s talking about the US he can go pound sand. We have enough aholes over here trying to grab the guns.

I haven’t listened to his drivel in years, and it has nothing to do with his political views, which are, I’m sure, far left if the company he keeps is any indication.

All true, and most of which proves they are cowards. Remember how they reacted when Republicans swept them out of the House and Senate in '94? They reacted like cockroaches do when someone turns on the lights, scurrying this way and that: Some resigned, declaring it was all over, some changed parties. So I'm counting on a repeat of that when they see the writing on the wall (and a little prayer won't hurt!).

Don't want to see violence because, imo, we won't escape unscathed. We only have a sample size of one to go by, but if the first Civil War is any indication, when Americans take up arms against one another, it results in some of the nastiest, bloodiest, brutal fighting the world has ever seen. I'm scared of a repeat on a much larger scale. Too many young people have been fully brainwashed and converted to the other side and they're likely to make the Khmer Rouge look like amateurs. The baby boomers among them are cowards, but their young are capable of anything. imo
