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.
Find out if the shooter was a ‘rat, and if so, disarm them all.
guess the media will never mention how the lefts social issues have made a society and a generation into all about them and never prepping them for the real world with getting knocked down.
The left produced a culture of nutters who were told that it;s alright to be different and then have hate laws protecting them.
How about telling kids hard work, get up instead of a band aid all the time and ice, how about not going out to eat all the time and teaching kids how to cook and clean up after.
HOw about telling and teaching kids resepect for life and it;s not all about them.
Nah it;s easier to blame guns but ignore that we have laws for guns and what he did was illegal, how about mentioning the lefts social policies and promoting the break up of a family have failed.
22 kids stabbed in China today, is the country going to ban knives?]
course not because the left would say it;s silly
How else you going to haul in a bunch of pre-marked ballots for a close election?
What I see here is the failure of the school and the teachers to protect the children when the responsibility of protecting them was assumed by the State with the laws preventing the teachers and administration from defending them. It is the fault of the school and laws of Connecticut from not having adequate police protection or safeguards to protect the children. Laws don’t protect the children, individuals do. The police only serve to investigate the scene after the crime has been committed.
Just a day or two before this event, a very similar one happened in China. No gun involved, similar number dead.
The only way to get lunatics and violent criminals to quit shooting people is to take guns away from law-abiding citizens!
Clearly the solution is home schooling.
we don;t need more gun control we need parents to do their job and raise decent kids and tell them to fit in and not tell them it;s alright to be different at school and then never never be there to raise them because the said parents can;t be bothered.
PS: Any Republican Congressmen and Senator's that are thinking of jumping on the "gun control" bandwagon, you WILL be primaried in 2014 (only the conservative NRA types vote in the off year Republican primaries). So decide if it's worth your career...
Soviet dissidents learned they wished they had taken one of the bastards down with them (when they came to take us away)
Typical lib hag, trying to profit off dead children.
I saved this quote from another FReeper about hiding guns: Too many want to bury their guns. Our guns will do no good if buried and not used against those who would deny us our basic rights. I dont believe we should bury anything except those who will come for what we have. Posted on Monday, December 29, 2008 9:59:29 PM by rustyboots
I agree with you, but when it comes to the Left, common sense is very uncommon.
But you can bet that her security detail is heavily armed.
That isn’t going to happen, manc.
This society is descending into absolute madness.
We need strong defenses against cowardly criminals.
We need to make all soft targets into hard targets.
Rep McCarthy seems still not to understand that had there been one armed passenger on that LIRR train when her husband was killed and her son maimed, they might not have suffered that fate.
The states are headed in the opposite direction anyway.

Bill Allowing Guns In Schools, Churches Moves Through Legislature(MI)
“Clearly the solution is home schooling.”
For many (especially in the high-cost northeast) that was financially difficult; however, nowadays an increasing number of families have a parent out of work. Maybe that will drive some to try it (though I doubt it).
I would start by Impeaching the Marxist for Sending Automatic GUNS to the Drug Cartels in Mexico and were used to Kill Hundreds of Men Women and Children there as well as our own Agents. Then we can talk about the weapons he is Giving to Jihadists in Syria,which they are using to Capture Chemical weapons there. Democrats spare me your phony sanctimony
You do understand the reason the army doesn’t paint its vehicles blaze orange, right?
“Why dont they just outlaw public schools? The gubmint is unable to provide adequate security.”
Exactly what I was thinking. All these teary eyed and concerned parents... How many of them are going to drop their kids off at exactly the same place on Monday morning as they did today?? Is the anything else more irrational??
For that matter, it's the same method that gave her the vote, which gave her the chance to be in Congress in the first place!
I can’t stand this grave-dancing old hag, or any of her ideological fellow-travelers. I would like to see, JUST ONCE, some reporters giving one of these people Hell for not allowing families time to grieve.
What a scumbag.
I used the public school issue to shut up the anti-gun rights roar; living about 2 hours from the site of the shootings (it was in western CT, through a narrow band of NY from where I am in northern NJ), I’m sure homeschooling isn’t an option for many people there.
It was interesting after 9/11 that the news reported a number of women dropped out of the workforce; if it was true I’d imagine they were re-thinking their priorities. Those that had families wanted to start being mothers again, and those that didn’t probably thought it might be a good idea to start one.
She is nothing but a rubber stamp for Pelosi. She used her insurance money to buy a house in the Hamptons and can almost never be found at home.
The GOP won't spend any money on ousting her just like the dems won't spend a dime to oust Pete King in the neighboring district. It's part of the un-holy deal the two parties made years ago.
And so, if I'm not mistaken, is the murder of innocent children.
