Leahy on guns: Treat children better than deer

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday that he supports closing the gun-show loophole and limiting high-capacity ammunition magazines, and said he'll convene the first hearings surrounding the Sandy Hook school shooting.

Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, the chamber's senior Democrat, said his home state of Vermont, which has a strong tradition of gun rights, has a rule limiting hunters using semiautomatic rifles to just six rounds of ammunition during deer-hunting seasons.

"Are we really saying as a nation we're going to be more protective of the deer than we are of our children? I think not," he said.

There was a case recently of a mother protecting her children who shot a home invader 5 times in the face and neck. He turned and ran away. Five shots were not enough to put him down, although they did stop his onslaught.

For defending children, sometimes you need more than a few bullets. Why should a politician tell me how many is too many? What does he know?

Here in extreme southern Michigan we have to use a shotgun because rifles are prohibited for deer hunting here.

I guess all the revolver manufacturers will be re-tooling to make 2 and 4 shot revolvers now that the brilliant jerry (step away from the buffet and slowly put down the fork) no-nadler has made his statement. What an idiot.

What hypocrisy. Obama, Leahy, and their dependants including children have armed body guards.

Yet Americans as individuals cannot even protect themselves
because their right to bear arms has been “regulated?”

The left wants a war. They will have one.Then all the body guards that Obama and Leahy have will not protect them at all, cetainly no longer than a day or two.Obama and Leahy want to test the ability of Americans to defend their own Constitution? So be it.

Leahy and Obama are about to become hunted criminals, criminals who infringe on the constitutional rights of Americans.

The 2nd Amendment isn't about hunting deer, and this guy knows it. It's designed to PROTECT US from....guess what......and out of control government.
This explains exactly why the totalitarian left wants us disarmed. We're getting in the way of their life long agenda.
That's what this "dabate" is all about. They want the U.S. population to surrender.

The left would have a fit if we started aborting deer calves. They'd immediately write laws forbidding it.

Leaky is really good at this reductio ad absurdum stuff.
Is he drooling in public yet? What is he now—about 90?

It’s not about hunting, it’s about a people protecting themselves from tyranny.
