Posted on 07/24/2012 10:25:51 PM PDT by voteNRA
A Minnesota congressman is calling for important changes to federal firearm laws in the wake of the movie theater massacre in Colorado.
Democrat Keith Ellison says the U.S. should not just restrict assault weapons but it should also set limits on some gun clips, ammunition and body armor.
Reasonable gun controls, Ellison said. Its time.
Ellison said Tuesday that you dont need a bulletproof vest and an assault rifle to go hunting. Hes supporting laws to restrict some of the items the Colorado shooter used in his deadly rampage. .....

Pretty much open commenting at the story (alias and made up email is all it takes) - have fun
While we're at it, here is my favorite picture of Mr. Ellison from a demonstration in Washington right around the time he showed up.
Minnesota’s favorite congressman ping
Just like taxes, there is no definition of reasonable where liberals are concerned.
every infringement on the constitution is reasonable to people that want to control you
The second amendment was not intended to protect people’s right to hunt, but their right to defense of life, liberty and property. People can hunt with arrows and knives. We need guns to ward off criminals and tyrants.
I call for a “reasonable” lobotomy and a strait jacket for Rep. Muzzie here..
He didn't have one. He had a vest with pockets.
Maybe we should ban movie theaters. After all, they have been trouble for ages.
We had to pass laws against someone yelling "Fire"! Some one could get trampled.
It was a one off case Ellison.
The only good Ellison is a handcuffed Ellison.
I haven't been following closely, is it confirmed that all he had was a tactical vest and not the armor plates that were first reported?
I support gun control too.
I control what guns I purchase and own.
You control what guns you purchase and own.
The government gets to keep the hell out of our way.
Depends on what you're hunting for.
Amen Secret Agent Man!
Here's another from the incident of Ellison cuffed and getting stuffed in the van
The only “reasonable” gun control would be keeping them out of the hands of sociopaths. I don’t think that would be possible, so I prefer gun rights because good people outnumber the bad.
What I have never understood is how these Pu**y’s get through the day handing kitchen knifes to make a dinner, load their darling baby’s in a car that can go 120 MPH, fill it with gasoline, run right at another car going 70 mph just feet away, then drop the babies off with someone they don’t even know, and guns, scare them.
Hmmphh! Go figure.
We need to ban “gun free” zones. They only leave the good people disarmed.
I’m not surprised this muzzie congress critter wants to disarm Christians and Jews.
It was a simple tactical vest.
This Holmes Guy was a wingnut.
You could ban rocks and the SOB would have still popped.
Not to nitpick, but that is a crime just about anywhere. Under the Criminal Code of Canada, it is illegal to "produce a false alarm of fire", and that applies not just to pulling an alarm but also to shouting "fire". It involves serious jail time.
I saw a report in the National Post that said he was wearing full body armour and a tactical helmet.
