Which part of “INFRINGEMENT” don’t these a$$holes get?
I hope my fellow Pennsylvanians keep this quote around for the 2018 election. I’m guessing he would have never said anything like this last year.
Casey is a public servant. This isn’t up to him to decide. We have a Bill of Rights to protect the people from the government.
The NRA really needs to be more careful about who it gives its seal of approval to.
Well if that great Constitutional scholar Bob Casey says it, it has to be true! /sarcasm
Geez, I didn’t even know he could speak. You never hear from him unless its some left-wing hairbrained idea...or in this case a very dangerous left-wing hairbrained idea. Pound sand, Senator.
“Shall not be infringed”.
Easy enough to understand. Impossible, for someone whose sole goal is more power, to leave alone.
Banning certain types of ammo of magazines is ridiculous. What good is a gun for self defense if you don’t have ammo? A gun with no ammo is no a weapon unless you plan to beat someone with it.
casey running his mouth.....
Keep spinning it any way you want, Bobby.
Vote for this and you’re electoral road kill anyplace outside of Philly.
And neither was the reason for the 2nd amendment.
The ability to form a militia to stand against a Tyrannical Government was the reason.
Which makes Casey's statement a complete non sequitur. QED.
If Casey's wife cheated on him only every other Friday with his best friend, would Casey say that his wife is only cheating a little? No. She is cheating. Period.
Another asshat heard from.
They are still getting away with pretending the 2nd amendment is about hunting.
We need a Constitutional Amendment forbidding any employee of the US Government...elected,appointed or civil service...to own any sort of firearm or to have any kind of personal protection in which firearms are utilized.
After a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips, they’ll simply wait for the next psycho to use a pistol and that’ll be that.
We’ll all be using plastic sporks to cut our broccoli with by the end of the decade.
This statement proves that Gov. Casey doesn't understand the purpose of the Second Amendment. Defense of one's family and hunting for food were universally accepted rights at the time of our founding. The Second Amendment was written to preserve the right of citizens to oppose tyrannical government with the same military arms that soldiers might use to oppress them. The Second Amendment is not a check on crime or hunger; it is a check on government tyranny. Only tyrants fear the private ownership of weapons.
Although the measures would have limited scope, they could include stricter rules on background checks and tougher penalties on gun trafficking, among other measures.****
Tougher penalties on Gun Trafficking????? The DOJ through BATFE is the biggest functional gun trafficker in the US.
Doublespeak by a bunch of psychopathic control freaks.
CONTROL means INFRINGEMENT to achieve CONTROL!
Communist wordplay ain’t makin’ it.
One, the basic right to protect yourself and purchase a gun if you need to protect your family,”
Ummm...how can I protect myself, if by chance, the criminals procure, I don’t know, a weapons with more than 10 rounds?
...or, I know it would neeever happen, if said and aforementioned criminals decide to team up in groups to invade my home, instead of coming at me one at a time, like a bad Kung Fu movie?
Lets pretend that in 1992 there were riots in a major American city...and fore the sake of argument pretend that the Youtube videos of the event do not show rioters neatly bunched up in groups of 10...but rather are swarming the neighborhood like a kicked over anthill. How would I protect myself from this unlikiely scenario.
Now, just for the sake of argument, ponder a situation where our government was broke. And, all of the sudden, our broke government could no longer refill EBT cards. How many days after that occurence would the riots start? And would a flintlock be sufficient for my protection against such an unlikely event?
