Obama, though, offered specific proposals only in reference to the latter. He called on Congress to pass "common-sense legislation," which he said should include an assault-weapons ban and a ban on high-capacity magazines.
Ok, Mr. Obama. You go first. Issue an executive order removing military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines from the Secret Service agents guarding you.
Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe, Mayor Bloomberg said.
Ok, Doomberg, you go first. Let your armed security detail go.
David Gregory (to Wayne LaPierre, Meet the Press, 12/23/2012
But you would concede that, as good as an idea as you think this is, it may not work. Because there have been cases where armed guards have not prevented this kind of massacre, this kind of carnage. I want you would concede that point, wouldn't you?
Ok, Gregory, you go first. Publicly call for Sidwell Friends school, where you send your own kids, to lay off the 11-person security detail, as they MIGHT not be able to stop the shooting.
It's all about security for me and not for THEE. The real message of the elites is their lives are worth defending. Not ours.
That's my stock answer to any hare-brained leftist proposing one of his or her hare-brained schemes. If it's such a great idea, they should be doing it, too! In fact, they need to set the example.
I will go one further. Since the person ELECTED, not appointed/annointed/ascended to the chair, is no longer in the office of President, once voted out of office, and is therefore considered ineffectual, has no need for Life-long Secret Service protection, as would a king.
Abolish after-Office Secret Service of just plain Americans, who were Presidents at one time in their life.
I agree 100%.
When the local and state cops, the FBI, the ATF and other Federal thugs no longer carry guns, then we can talk about gun control amongst the populace.
‘You first’ has a nice ring to it. Here’s an effort that is right along those lines.
Doomberg’s mayor of NYC. Outside of the five boroughs he’s just another hypocritical loudmouth with no jurisdiction.
seems any time “common sense” is used re: laws, someone is doing and end-run around the Constitution.
For those who are wondering what the heck that is:( sigh... of course it’s in archives)
GREAT campaign. Needs to be worked up and expanded outward ...
