Maybe if you had used one to reduce the criminal population a bit; you would not be so spineless now.
Oh wait, these are leftists, how could I be that silly.
When were these idiots taught to begin questions with “There are some who say”?
Blumenthal is a far-left ideologue and not to be trusted at all.
Everything he suggested as solutions to gun crimes are already in effect, and often ineffective, not enforced, poorly written laws that get overturned by the courts, and are aimed at disarming the potential victims/victims on an equal basis with the criminal.
That is why they always fail.
It has always been about handguns. Assault rifles was just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.
Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.
John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.
Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.
George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl.
Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.
Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.
Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 pistol.
What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban them.
Where handguns are unlawful already.
They can pass all the laws they like. What they can't do is make people obey them.
What Nelson P Shields, founder of Handgun Control Inc said...
Nelson T. ‘Pete’ Shields
Founder of Handgun Control, Inc.
“I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily given the political realities going to be very modest. Of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved.’ And it’s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time.
So then we’ll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal total control of handguns in the United States is going to take time. My estimate is from seven to ten years.
The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors totally illegal.”

“Yes, I’m for an outright ban [on handguns].”

What about shotguns? They shoot many pellets all at once, that’s kinda like a machine gun!!!!
I really don’t give a rat’s patoooti what a lying Sac’oshiite lib has to say about much of anything.
Especially THIS Blumenthal lying SOB.
Oh Soledad, you pretty little idiot.
And he'd better not allow people with guns around to protect them, either, right? In fact, he should even get rid of this own armed guards. What's good for the kids must be good for the president.
The blood of Sandy Hook is on Soledad and all those who seek to criminalize self defense. Shame on them!
if she or anyone she knew was attacked she’d be wishing she was armed.
Don't kid yourselves . . . These people never let up or give up.
Its often been observed that perception is more important than reality. The observation is often correct. It is never MORE CORRECT than for those weve come to call liberals. I prefer statist but liberal has morphed from its classic meaning to the other end of the spectrum so Ill stay with it.
Since these folks operate almost entirely on EMOTION and FEELING, REALITY seldom allows FACTS to intrude upon the delusional worldview they have constructed and the comfort that provides them. It is that illogical, irrational and delusional mindset that prompts many of them to continue to quest after a Utopian society. The thought that such a society can and will never be achieved in a fallen world populated with failed sinners never penetrates whatever remains of their cognitive consciousness. Its a DANGEROUS WORLD and, as the liberals continue to define deviancy down, it becomes more dangerous daily.
There is another, far more sinister, level of the liberal call for gun control.
It was Mencken who offered that The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the URGE TO RULE. He clearly had been a student of the liberal politicians of his day. Were he alive today and able to observe the likes of Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Obama and the rest, hed almost certainly have used far stronger language to frame his sage observation.
To conclude, dozens of studies reveal the FACTS concerning gun control. Those FACTS are that where firearms are widely and READILY available to law-abiding citizens, CRIME GOES DOWN! The liberals who willfully ignore the FACTUAL EVIDENCE and continue to call for gun control (i.e. the DISARMING of DECENT CITIZENS, thereby denying them the ability to exercise their God-given right to self-defense) are those about whom Mencken wrote: Their goal is NOT about preserving life. It is about the hell-bent pursuit of the impossible to achieve Utopian world where all are equal but some (thatd be THEM) are MORE equal than others (thatd be US).
There are many PRO-RTKABA videos on You Tube that your often busy lives dont allow you to find on your own. Search there for Gun Control, watch them and, more importantly SHARE THEM with the folks in your orbit.
Were in a fight. And losing will ultimately cost us much more than our right to our guns.

Democrats are simply not going to be comfortable until we all live under the constant dominance of the Federal Government.
It is like their security blanket- to be completely owned and directed by the government.
They hate freedom as much as we love freedom.
Every time a presstitute asks about gun control the reply should be to ask them to consider media control. Not freedom of the press; but, Media control.
IF these bleeding hearts would simply jail the criminals, the “dangerous guns”, wouldn’t be a “threat” on the street.
