Crazy Ed: "There's no excuse for any American to have a semi-automatic weapon"
Fox News Channel (no link) | 7/22/12 | Rendell

Posted on 07/22/2012 2:28:13 PM PDT by pabianice

Ed Rendell on Fox remarking on the Colorado shooting. The gunman had an "automatic assault weapon that fired a hundred rounds without reloading" and "he only stopped using it when it jammed" and "it was only the cowardice of Congress that allows these assault weapons to be available to the public."

Crazy Ed: just ranting the vote-losing idiocy that Liberals won't say for themselves before an election.

The American Revolution began when the Crown tried to disarm the Colonists.

It will end when the Colonists demand to be disarmed.

Actually there is no reason for cops to have anything more than a revolver and a pump action shotgun. Anything more than that is just encouraging them to act in an irresponsible way which we have no end of examples thanks to the internet.

Well if he is taking up the anti-gun banner, I would consider it a good sign. The guy is a reverse barometer. He is never right.

And because of liberals, it will be 20 years or more before this killer can be put down like a rabid dog. Why is that, Mr. Rendell? Why do liberals try to hard to keep such savage killers alive?

‘tis better to keep your mouth shut and have people suspect you are ignorant, than to open it and prove they are right’.

Yes, there is a reason for MANY Americans to have so-called “semi-automatic” weapons. Have you never fumbled with a bolt-action, and fumbled or even dropped the next round while inserting it?

Makes all the difference when facing an oncoming bear.

When you have no more ammunition, THEN you stop firing.

My idea is that the USA could greatly reduce traffic accidents by banning automatic cars.

According to liberals, only governments need machine guns because liberal governments love to murder people. Liberals are the most hate-filled, mean-spirited, murdering tyrants.

We NEED semi-automatic weapons to keep the following images from happening here in the USA!

'Reason'? Reason plays no part in this.

The purpose is to control who has guns, and who does not. The first step in a dictatorship is to ensure the ruling elite have the weapons and manpower to control the populace and stop any 'coups'. This is how they do it, all over the world. Because it works.

We are in the midst of it right now. I still say that they will publicly declare a Socialist Dictatorship of the Western Hemisphere on Dec. 21, 2012. The 'end of our world' , as they say.

People who say such things don't even know what a semi-automatic weapon is. They probably don't know the difference between a rifle and a sling shot.

Notice that just like with the Columbine massacre, the left is angry about the firearms and gives the bombs a pass.

And also as with Columbine, of all the firearms used, only a few would have been denied under a ban on so-called “assault weapons”.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, but for what grander purpose? I’ll give you two guesses and first one doesn’t count.

The Clinton assault weapons ban was what gave us the Republican "takeover" of Congress in 1994.

I hope Obama is stupid enough to try it again.

Liberals - tough on guns (inanimate objects that cannot be held responsible for the way they are used), but squishy on criminals (thoughtful human beings who know what’s right and CHOSE to commit evil acts). They truly are evil.

Fast Eddie Rendell...86 grand a month on his catering bill when he was Governor. A fat useless sack of Sh!t Union thug. He raised every tax, fee,and toll he could get his fat fingers on,some twice! I guess he stopped licking his fingers long enough to stomp on the Constitution and save us from ourselves.

I’m not a gun owner because guns make me queasy. But unlike the NY Times, when analyzing possible reasons why the homicide rate is the lowest it’s been in over 50 years, I take increased gun ownership into account

Fast eddie- get the description correct first. It would be an "auto-loading" firearm. "Automatic" of course conveys the "scary" gun for stupid people who don't know-- and vote liberal. Here's fact, fast eddie: ONE concealed carry patron inside the theater, with proper aim and training could have stopped this. And the FACT is there were police outside the event and inside the building and THEY DIDN'T.

Just a small point there on the police. Why no action-- don't they know what to do or do they wait for SWAT?

I'm glad you brought that up.

What is better for home defense?

#4 or 00 buck?

I don't have through the wall concerns so which is better for total stooping power?

You'll be a lot queasier if you ever have to see a loved one raped or killed because you are unable to defend your home.

People don't buy guns because they're fun. Many people enjoy guns, but that's not why you buy one.

You buy one because the alternative is not acceptable.

Queasy is irrelevent.

Vomiting is irrelevent.

Sh***ing your pants is irrelevant.

Wake up.

My husband’ uncle was an avid gun owner. A year after he died his aunt committed suicide with one of the guns. I know that’s a rare occurrence, but when it hits close to home it’s not easy to put in the back of your mind.
