Harry Reid: ‘I’ve Got Lots of Guns’ February 4, 2013 By Matt Cover

(CNSNews.com) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told ABC’s “This Week” “I’ve got lots of guns,” when asked his views on the Second Amendment and efforts by some of his Democratic colleagues to enact stricter gun control measures.

“I've got lots of guns,” Reid told host George Stephanopoulos in an interview Sunday. “I had guns from the time I was a little boy. I don't hunt anymore, but I did.”

Reid said he now keeps his guns “for sentimental reasons.” The top Senate Democrat also noted that his father used a gun to commit suicide and that he had carried a gun as a Capitol policeman.

“I was a police officer. I carried a gun. That's what I did to put myself through law school. My dad killed himself, shot himself with a gun, committed suicide, so I know a lot about guns. And there are things that I think we need to do.”

Reid said that he would allow Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) to bring legislation through the Senate Judiciary Committee on gun control. He also said he’d allow a vote on Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) bill to ban so-called assault weapons or allow it as an amendment to Leahy’s bill.

However, Reid did not say he supported either piece of legislation, saying “I don’t know” when asked if he’d vote for them.

“Oh, I don't know. I frankly – and she [Sen. Feinstein] knows I haven't read her amendment. I didn't vote for the assault weapons [ban] last time because it didn't make sense, but I'll take a look at it,” he said.

Feinstein to Reid: “Turn them in, Harry. As a felon, you're not allowed to have them.”

Didn’t surprise me. Reid is one of the top senators the NRA has a relationship with. Reid is well-hated here on FR but the NRA has him wrapped.

I think it's the other way around.......Reid uses the NRA. Period.

IF...the NRA had any balls they'd cancel Reid's membership.

The purpose of the Second Ammendment isn’t to guarantee our right to sport hunt or have guns for sentimental reasons.

It is to guarante our right to arms to protect ourselves from the excesses of tyrannical crazies like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

Reid’s “lots of guns” must be the ones Obama is “always shooting skeet” with.

You can take that to the bank, the NRA should have nothing to do with him.

Again with the lie that they don’t want to confiscate all guns...

There is no reason for them to say things like this except to cover up the truth.

You don’t see an ACTUAL gun rights supporter saying anything about “shooting skeet all the time” or having “lots of guns”.

IF liberals pass gun control: We push for laws OUTLAWING all private security people from carrying guns. The BILL will be called 'Good for the Goose, Good for the Gander'...

Plush highrises that people like Harry Reid live in will NOT be protected by armed security.

Section 8 people will be moved into all luxury residential buildings at the governments expense. We'll all happily pay a little more to return the kindness our 'leaders' have 'shared' with the rest of us.... Seems elites are racists. Time to spread the joy around a little more equally - oh and remember - NO ARMED SECURITY...

Same for Hollywood princesses and blowhards - NO MORE ARMED SECURITY guards. Hollywood wants to take our guns away? Fine.

We're going to return the favor.

No guns for their body guards - or security teams. They can rely on the same 'gun control' laws the rest of us have to rely on.... Hollywood can live like the people they want to disarm.

NO paid gun carrying security for newspapers or networks either. Or anyone. If we're disarmed, everyone's disarmed. Well, except for criminals - they don't tend to follow the law. The elites will discover that once their protection is taken from them

Well good for him, he will likely be needing them.

Reid said he now keeps his guns “for sentimental reasons.”

Finally, something Reid and I have in common. I get sentimental about the Constitution, about personal freedom, about our God-given rights, and about my family's safety. I keep guns for sentimental reasons too!

I also keep guns to punch holes in targets and for hunting, but I don't get sentimental about either of those activities.
