Gun & Ammunition Spike (CNBC!? Ed Rendel, Assault Weapons Ban Must Be Reinstated ALERT! VIDEO)
http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=1095874655&play=1 ^ | 4/17/2009 | Gov. Ed Rendell on CNBC

Posted on 04/17/2009 6:00:06 AM PDT by longtermmemmory

Interview of Gov. Ed Rendel saying civilians only need revolvers and have no use for "assault weapons".

He is also stating there is no slippery slope.

He is also demanding the banning of high capacity clips.

KEYWORDS: amendment; assault; awb; banglist; control; cwii; donttreadonme; goa; gun; molonlabe; nra; second; secondamendment; shallnotbeinfringed
Between the lines Rendell is implying all semi-automatics are "assault weapons".

Rendell is delivered Penn. for Obama so I would expect he is plugged in on the effort to ban guns outright. Folks, he was giddy at the prospect of banning the second amendment.

I could use a revolver, Ed.

How about some revolver stimuli?

The nonchalant arrrogance of Rendell is just shocking. He is speaking as if the AWB is a done deal.

Rendell also said he was reelected in the 20 margin and there is nothing to fear from the NRA or imposing gun control.

Rendel essentially outright was stating there is no reason for civilians to own guns, only the police and military.

He conceeded that if somebody was desperate for some kind of “protection” HE would allow them to own a revolver.

IOW the GOVERNMETN grants fundamental rights! Rendell is slime.

There are millions of mini-14’s, Ar’s, Ak’s, SKS’s, ect in pa. He is once again dreaming. I left Pa in 90’s, was shocked when I got to Alaska where there are no state taxes; never realized how screwed I was back east by my own state govt; people in Pa need to wake up outta their slumber.

You need to break Pennsylvanians away from their unions before Fast Eddie will be defeated. Too many gun owners in PA vote their unions instead of their rights. The most recent election is evidence of that.

Rendel does not care.

His goal is to criminalize anyone who did not vote for him.

This is about power for rendel.

Rendel sees gun control as job security for him.

unions are the point of a sword for the drowning man.

the union members are not thinking period. They are only sold the lie that their union bosses are protecting their jobs.

these days union is just another world for “slave owned by Democrat Party”

Rendell thinks he has it in the bag.

He was very proud of citing his 20 point reelection.

he also was very confident of getting this through congress.

FOLKS LISTEN TO HIS TALKING POINTS.

-there is no slippery slope.

-assault weapons jam easy.

-no reason for a civilian to be able to shoot so far.

The idiot actually stated that 70% of the population supported an assault weapons ban. A Total Lie.

The Dem's are scared, and they should be. Statements like his have consequences.

If they keep this up, even Acorn will not save them in the next election cycle, if this lasts that long.

I knew i was going to be inaccurate on that.

The bottom line is whether you say clip or magazine, the Democrat party as a whole, INCLUDING THE BLUEDOGS, are going to vote for this.

Not to mention that John MccAin and Arlen Specter and olympia snow are going to vote FOR the AWB with or without a democrat majority.

Rendell needs to put his money where his mouth is and give up all of his armed protection.

“Assault weapons are difficult to operate, they jam easily...”

“They put out a ton of fire at one time, they are very powerful...”

“It blew through a police car...”

“These weapons have one purpose: to kill and to maim...”

“You won’t find them in a duck blind, you won’t find them at the Olympics.”

Does this guy have any idea what he is talking about? My AK variant is very easy to operate, it is very very difficult to jam, it will NOT “put out a ton of fire at one time”, it is relatively weak powered compared to most other rifles, it penetrates car doors made of aluminum and plastic the same as any other rifle would, it is designed to shoot (not to kill/maim), and shooting ducks or Olympic targets had nothing to do with my decision to buy it.
