Skip to comments.McCarthy: I will embarrass Obama on gun control
Posted on 12/14/2012 2:47:20 PM PST by ColdOne
In the wake of the deadly Connecticut school shooting, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy said she has warned the White House the gloves are off if President Obama fails to act on the issue.
McCarthy (D-N.Y.), the foremost gun control advocate in Congress, said she spoke with White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew before Election Day and told him she will exert pressure on the White House to push for gun control legislation.
I said, Jack, I know the president is going through an election and Im telling you after the election Im coming out full force, McCarthy told POLITICO Friday. I was just giving the White House a heads up that the gloves are off on my side and I was going to do everything I possibly could. If that meant embarrassing everybody, thats what I would do.
Embarrassing the White House, McCarthy said, meant building a large-scale pu

If you haven’t yet had your obligatory boating accident, this weekend would probably be a good time to have it.
The Left won’t rest until every U. S. Citizen is defenseless in their own home, just waiting until the next home invasion robber has a whim.
When it comes to our rights, the Left are illiterate.
I’m avoiding boats “like the plague”.
Someone needs to remind this twit that bringing loaded firearms into an elementary school is aleady against the law.
She is only going to embarrass herself.
Cold dead hand you commie biotch
I can’t help but wonder if Rep. McCarthy owns a handgun of her own, or has a security person by her that does???
Shooting people also against the law in all jurisdictions I’m aware of.
What good does it do you to hide your guns if you are going to cower when they come for them?
She can stamp her foot and blow her hot foul air all she wants....it’s her constitutional right. To own what I own is my constitutional right. This country is already on the verge of an another outright civil war. Morons like her are the types that will push it over the edge.
Somebody muzzle that rabid bitch.
Let them tryout. Right now there are probably close to 400 million guns in this country, good luck trying prey those away from gun owners.. Also, if even they banned them the amount of gun trafficking that would go one through our pourous borders would be trmendous... They would have to have a WAR on Guns.. They would again look like the stupid progessives when they tried to ban alcohol..
You don’t need gun control, you dumb, feckless idiot.
What you need is criminal control.
If you want kids to be safe in school from psychopaths, then you are going to need to keep kids in school safe from psychopaths.
That will not be achieved by disarming the law abiding, but rather arming them to the teeth.
Schools are going to need to hire essentially Blackwater ops and keep them on grounds at all times fully armed and fully armored.
Furthermore, those ops are going to need to provide extensive security measures.
That’s what it is going to take, and parents will have to pay that cost via tuition if they wish to send their kids to a school that can provide security.
McCarthy, you keep your useless nonsense away from me. People like you have created this problem with your compulsive weakness, and you are only going to make it worse.
If you don’t want more victims, then don’t make people into victims, dummy.
I think it’s time we agreed to meet the statists half way on their gun grab agenda. Let the liberals disarm and we keep ours.
Hey, that’s meeting them half way. I guarantee you that if all Obama voters surrendered their firearms, gun crimes would go down about 98%. Probably more.
No. She IS going to embarrass Obama who will become the Right Flank of the gun-control debate.
The gun-control types are going to frame this issue nationwide with views of teary-eyed moms and tiny body-bags and Obama will become the face of gun-control opposition.
The reality of the debate will not even enter into the discussion. The MSM are not going to listen to anyone from the right. It will be the left negotiating with themselves until the law is passed and they then try and enforce it.
God Help us!
How has gun control worked in countries that have gun control? Not very well.
How come they didn’t outlaw vans after the Oklahoma City bombing?
Why don’t they just outlaw public schools? The gubmint is unable to provide adequate security.
