realclearpolitics.com ^ | January 9, 2013

Posted on 01/10/2013 8:39:12 AM PST by Tailgunner Joe

In a speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, former President Bill Clinton outlined the importance mobile technology but also talked about political issues like gun control calling the availability of high-capacity gun magazines "nuts."

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: I grew up in the hunting culture, but this is nuts. Why does anybody need a 30 round clip for a gun? Why does anybody need one of those things that carries 100 bullets? The guy in Colorado had one of those.

“Why does anybody need”

I don’t remember seeing a justification of need in the constitution.

If its so ‘nuts’, ammend the constitution.

Well Bill, we certainly didn’t need a serial rapist or

Get over it.

“The tank, the B-52, the fighter-bomber, the state-controlled police and military are the weapons of dictatorship. The rifle is the weapon of democracy. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military. The hired servants of our rulers. Only the government-and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws.” (Edward Abbey, “The Right to Arms,” Abbey’s Road [New York, 1979])

"Why does anybody need a 30 round clip for a gun?"

Why is a 30 round magazine any more dangerous than three 10 roud magzines each of which can be swapped out for the other in a gun in less than a second?

Well Captain Dipshi*! This is directly from Pravda, and is exactly why it’s not “nuts”!

No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.

So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.

Why does anybody need one of those things that carries 100 bullets?

"Why do you need an semi-automatic rifle?"
"Why do you need a 30 round magazine?"

These kinds of questions are designed to put you on the defensive.
You do not have to defend your choice to own a bolt-action, pump or semi-auto - or full-auto if you want to jump through the NFA hoops.
You don't have to defend whether your handgun holds 6 rounds, or 8 or 16 or 19.
The answer to these questions is, "Because I can."

let me get this right, this man goes to this convention , nothing to do with guns, he speaks about us not needing 30 rounds mags, well last I knew it;s nothing to do with what I have or his business or what I need,

I have a right to have them more so than his homo pals getting maried, more so than killing babies, more so than illegals getting welfare.

We get our rights from the constitution and our creator not from the Govt so these homo, cross dressing, abortion so called rights activists, illegals rights have less claim to their so called rights thsan us who has the 2nd amendment

freedom of rleigion under attack
right to bear arms under attack
states rights under attack
now the debt limit under attack

1st, 2nd, 10th, and 14th amendment under attack and this clown has the backing of a corrupt media which has done more to attack our rights and the constitution than anyone in the last couple of decades.

Well done PA, FL, VA, WI, OH, IO, NM, CO gun owners who voted for this muppet, if guns go away than it should be yours to go and you lot should be given all you voted for.

obama, why stupid people should not vote

The Agenda 21 of the UN, the One World Government and the Obama types cannot, simply cannot take place in America until the citizens are unarmed. An armed group of citizens will not become serfs. They want the citizens of this Republic to become serfs, dependent upon them. They have that number up to 47 or 48%. As soon as they can get it over the 50%, then they will be making huge gains. They must unarm America to take total control. That is the plan. Pal Pot, Hitler, Saddam, Stalin, North Korea, all are perfect examples of taking away the guns of the population. Total control. TOTAL. Then the 100 plus millions dead from those “leaders” shows the results of the unarmed population. Check out the death camps (interment camps) they are building around America. The millions of hollow point bullets the various IRS, NASA, social security are buying up. For WHAT?? To take control. They HAVE to unarm America. Simple as that.

commies always seem to bring up the phrase need, well why do they need to live in their 5,000 sq ft home, why do they need that expensive clothing.
I heard Gretchen Carlson another one who is being anti gun and a dopey woman asking why people need these kind of guns.

Well Gretchen it;s not about need , it’s about my rights, more rights than your homo pals getting married or your elitist pals getting pregnant and having it killed or even your illegal house cleaner getting a job here .

Because citizens armed with single shot hunting rifles can't protect their freedom against a tyrannical, unconstitutional government armed with high powered automatic weapons.

The idea of opposing “superiors” is “absurd” to them.
Their ideology assumes that the elite have nothing but benevolent intent for the masses.

I wonder what kind of magazines Clinton’s detachment of Secret Service troops use in their fully automatic M4 assault rifles?

When these hypocritical bastards get up on the podium and give speeches to disarmed walked through metal detector public sheep, surrounded by armed guards living to put bullets into any one of them that dare rush on the impeached president, and nobody brings this up to his attention?

Where is our protection? It’s in the weapons we have in our hands. That is all we are ever going to get.

Of course a sex predator would want only bolt actions that are only operable by men and not women who need the semi auto feature.

All these idiots do not realize we went from the big ol M1 Garrand without grips and only 8 round clips to M16s in order to accomodate women in combat and other light weights outside the Marine corps... but nooo they supposedly are “big military” features, the handgrip, semi auto and generous magazines.

These features were added for the handicapped in combat who had a lot of gear or was smaller, so that no change were needed in changing mags, bothering with clips or shooting with big calliber.

They started attacking for “features within” the already legal weapon, not the type of weapon, such as the fully auto thing, so that they could have a reasonable excuse for search and seizure if they see anyone with a gun.

Cops will be ordered and they will follow the orders. They will search vehicles from here on out, and it will be a franchizing of the police terror state, and rapes by LE will be on the increase.

The question is, “Who are you to decide what we need?”

This is a fundamental right under our Constitution.

You have no authority or right to challenge what we need.

We have liberty and privacy interests (Remember Griswold v Connectucut-contraceptives and Roe v Wade-abortion?).

It's not about hunting Willie, it's about defense and freedom.

An unarmed country is a prime candidate for revolution, the likes of which Obama and his collective have been planning for years.

The Left knows, as long as the nation is armed, their revolution will be bloody and hard fought at best, and doomed at worst.
