Former House speaker Newt Gingrich talked about gun control this morning on CBS:
Gingrich revealed that he's been urging House Republicans to hold hearings about gun control in Chicago, President Obama's hometown and "the murder capital of the United States."
"Well, I think it's amazing that we're having all this discussion about gun control: The president's hometown, Chicago, is the murder capital of the United States. Over 500 people were killed there last year. Vice President Biden doesn't seem to want to go there. I'm trying to get the House Republicans to hold hearings there. It's illegal to have all the guns that are killing people in Chicago. If gun control works, Chicago ought to be safe," said Gingrich.
I keep asking myself what else Obozo is doing while trying to distract us with his assault on the 2A.
Yeah Chicago, show ‘em all how great gun control works...
"It's illegal to have all the guns that are killing people in Chicago. If gun control works, Chicago ought to be safe," said Gingrich.
If I had my way, Newt Gingrich would be about to take the oath of office for President of the United States.
Bump your every word, Gator113!
Thanks for the ping, (((NGZ)))
Gun Control “logic” bump for later.......
> If I had my way, Newt Gingrich would be about to take the oath of office for President of the United States.
He seems to have a bit more lucidity and conviction than Romney did plus he’s a critical thinker that is no stranger to conflict and confrontation. He appears to be a lot more intelligent than Boner and Pelosi...
Why is it in this gun control “mecca” of Chicago, that the unarmed citizens are dying at a record pace? And, if your going to tell me that it's because criminals can bring guns in from outside Chicago, explain why Milwaukee and Indianapolis...both allow easier access to guns for law-abiding citizens...and both have a much lower per capita rate of violent crime and gun-murder...?
Guns are easier to get in Milwaukee and Indianapolis than they are for the criminals to get in Chicago. So criminals in Milwaukee and Indianapolis have even “better” access to guns than the thugs in Chicago.
So again, where is the logical argument that would justify Chicago's astronomical gun murder rate? There is only one logical reason for Chicago's murder rate—they have a high population of amoral thugs and an unarmed population of law-abiding, easy victims.
Who says it pays to be a lawful citizen... Over 530 former citizens of Chicago might be alive today if they, or someone who loves them, were empowered with the ability to stand toe-to-toe with the thugs.
Anytime onyx (((hug)))! =(
Sad face for what we are up against.
Psssh the misspelling. The gist is there and we all get it!
I’d rather misspell than be sent to “the camp”....or die trying not to be sent.
My dog appears to have more intelligence than either Bohner or Pelosi.
only if it was “the Good Newt” - because there is a good newt, and a bad newt, but the good Newt is amazing at times!
(BTW, off double secret probie status.....)
Kinda fits a lot of ids ....
My name is Dan. There is a good Dan, a bad Dan and a very hardened mature Dan that still looks at life through the eyes of a child, or so my bride says. With me, it’s a package deal.
ANY Newt would be better that that jerk we are now stuck with. I think you know that. ;>)
Well, yes, you make a good point. Although I doubt you are as schizo as Newt is. BTW, I supported Newt in the primaries, and writing a book now about how Karl Rove and the Establishment Lost...Again. In that book, I explore the good Newt V the Bad Newt in depth.
I remember that you supported Newt in the primaries.
For me it worked like this: I wanted Palin to run, she didn’t so I supported Newt, then in the general I supported Romney.
I would have voted for a can of soup over Obama.
Please let me know when your book is out. I will probably not like any Newt bashing, but I would love the parts dedicated to eviscerating Karl Rove and the Establishment. ;>)
There’s no real Newt bashing, but I do mention that in the past there’s been “a bad Newt” and that for almost the entire 2011-12 season, he was the “good Newt” - and then lost it in Florida....as did the entire Republican field. Much more positive about Newt than negative, but very negative towards his consultants, including those establishment types I fought tooth and nail with inside the Super PAC supporting Newt.
Book will be something....out soon.....a 20 year deconstruction of how our establishment has lost every argument, ceded every narrative, discarded the truth, and totally screwed up the party and that party’s message.
I envy your talent.
The meeting should be held on the Southside of Chicago - and without armed security. Let these folks learn how it feels to be an every day American...
