Posted on 03/21/2013 10:20:58 PM PDT by marktwain
Appearing on MSNBC Thursday, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) claimed that millions of kids are killed by so-called "assault weapons," citing numbers that fall far short of the numbers reported by the FBI, The Blaze reported,
Were talking about millions of kids dying being shot down by assault weapons, we're talking about handguns easier in the inner cities, to get these guns in the inner cities, than to get computers. This is not just a political issue, its a moral issue and so when we condemn the NRA we should not ignore the fact that a lot of people that have taken moral positions have been solid on this big one, he said.
Rangel blamed the NRA and politicians who support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Im ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting, he said, apparently unaware that it is already illegal for average citizens to own automatic weapons without a special permit.

And Nanzi said 500 million Americans were out of work. Their news network believes global warming causes asteroids. Their president thinks there are 57 stars on the flag he won’t salute. Joe Biden.
It’s a Not Sure world inside the beltway.
A falsehood from the mouth of a POS who should be behind bars!
Rangle doesn’t want whitiey to have better guns than his constituents.
He’s so stupid. It is not easier to get a gun then a computer in the inner city. You only need one gun to get hundreds of computers from the unarmed Best Buy or the gun free zone at the local school!!
The only assault weapons that are killing millions are abortionist tools.
An "assault weapon" is any thing that can be used to assault a kid. That would include rocks and sharp sticks.
No, Charlie - it’s the abortions - that you support - that kill millions of kids. Criminals using guns come nowhere close to killing the number of kids that abortionists do.
“And Nanzi said 500 million Americans were out of work. Their news network believes global warming causes asteroids. Their president thinks there are 57 stars on the flag he wont salute. Joe Biden.
Its a Not Sure world inside the beltway.”
That is what you get when you do not believe in truth, and protest against reality.
To some people with an agenda that goes beyond common sense any gun is an assault weapon.
Is this boob half-brother to the boob that warned that Guam was going to tip over? Are all these people stupid?
Charlie..Liar Liar pants on fire. Though those low information voters ..... and the moonbats (sorry) that he is trying to reach will believe in his lies so much they will be calling in on talk radio and posting on the left leaning blogs this non sense. Some of the democrats (and republicans) across America can be lied to so easily. Reminds me to why I don't like either side --Going along on one side and spreading lies for an agenda on the other.
Well, it is possible in some third world African countries where children are used as soldiers, by negro terrorist, better known as freedom fighters by the libs.
These are probably the children of the 170 million unemployed people that Maxine told us about.
Li’l Debbie Wassermann was complaining on another thread that her aides—making from 60K to over a 100K @ year—are having trouble making ends meet due to the ‘sequester.’
They can’t afford a “good meal” at lunch, so yeah, give them even more money.
George Orwell defined ‘political power’ as the ability to make others suffer. But even he didn’t write anything about those having power rubbing the peasants’ noses in it, unless that’s what he meant describing the socialists’ vision of the ideal future: ‘A boot stamping on a human face—forever.’
Our country seems to be in an economic death spiral, the government is buying billions of rounds of ammo, people like Wassermann weep crocodile tears “for the children” while their policies kill countless babies, their president says everything’s fine, and on-and-on.
And we hear these jackasses inventing stuff like this and bitching about their single, politically connected aides not being able to afford eating lunch in a place where they want to be seen.
It’s beyond discouraging.
I need to change my tag line, so I will.
Most of the children are shot by young black men Charlie!.....so what the hell should we ban?
What the Hell does that even mean? Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, thrift stores and many other retailers carry computers. Schools and libraries have computers and anyone could use one of these, they could also order a computer online, by phone or by mail. Is he saying there's no Internet, phone or mail service in urban areas? Inner city residents seem to have thousands of dollars for sneakers, gold jewelry, liquor, illegal drugs, sports accessories, tattoos, cars and dental appliances. Computers have come down in price since the invention of the PC.
I think there is something in the water...
Seems like those who have been there any length of time all get Beltway Fever. The dementia phase is worse with some than others.
Hmmmmmmmm.... $300 for a newest pair of Nikes; or should I just spend it on a half decent computer? Naw, think I’ll invest it in a gun & a cool pair of baggie-britches, and then get several of both for free!
billions of kids are saved by guns. we win.
Watch Charlie like a hawk or he’ll pass a law without a legal vote.
Why wasn't this post #1?
Demoncrats are responsible for the deaths many more children than guns of any/all type, but they keep beating the same drum.
some democrats : Obama, fienstein, Boxer, Ried, Rangel, Pelosi, news reporters etc.
That may actually be close to the truth......in Africa.
“Rangel is aiming at the low information voter.”
At this point any Dem politician (especially black ones, due to the soft bigotry of lowered expectations) can make any outrageous claim and have it ignored by the Dem media. God forbid somebody stops speaking for a drink of water - because that is really important...
At least more people are realizing every day what many of us here have known for years: there is no way for the two sides to co-exist anymore.
He's saying that "his people" prefer buying handguns to buying computers, although that may be erroneous, because you can't play computer games or watch porn if you don't have a beeber of some sort. Surely they have smartphones, at least.
I didnt know this was happening. That changes everything.
Millions of children ??? He doesnt say how often that happens. Every two hundred years millions of them are killed?.
Ban them for Gabby. save the kids.
If they ban assault weapons, how long will it be before they come after scoped rifles?
“Thousands are killed every year by rifles that can kill at over a mile away!”
Then, they will come after large caliber rifles.
“You don’t need a 50 caliber bullet to shoot deer!”
Just like the tax increases that are never enough, their desire to ban everything is never enough.
As I said on the day Heller was decided, if liberals have their way, the only firearm you will be allowed to own is a single shot inside your home. Nothing else, nowhere else.
We must ban freedom for TEH CHILDRENZ sake!!! It’s all for TEH CHILDRENZ.
Every three seconds an American child is mercilessly gun downed by high powered military style assault rifles. Check that, every TWO seconds.
The leading cause of dead children? Rich white men, did you know that? It’s true.
100 children are shot every time someone posts to free republic, this can be proven with “science”. Time to ban free republic! For the keeeeeeedz!!!
It is much harder for the Republicans to get away with lies. They are attacked by the MSM right away.
The left gets a pass.
I believe Charlie Rangel is the person who rammed through the ban on any more of those permits in 1986. It was a highly controversial move, because the tape clearly showed he did not have the votes, he just declared that he did.
He is just a corrupt liar who does not one of the many people he preyed upon to have a gun.
Where does this retard get his information?
Aurora, Colo., theater shooter James Holmes converts to Islam

The man who shot up an Aurora, Colo., movie theater during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last summer has reportedly converted to Islam and prays up to five times a day.
Calypso Louis’ “Million Man Math.”
Years ago, when the Mafia wars were epidemic , law enforcement were trying to figure out how to stop them.
I’ll paraphrase what one agent said but he hit the nail on the head...’Why stop them they are just killing off each other for us’.
“Where does this retard get his information?:”
He just makes stuff up. The MSM does not call him on it because he is “progressive” and he is “black”.
Remember the left does not believe in truth, and they have a problem with reality.
” The leading cause of dead children? Rich white men,”
Rich white men, who never owned a gun.....they are the REAL hotbed!
I know the conventional wisdom is to not attribute malice as a motive when stupidity will serve as well.
However, there comes a point when intentional, repeated ignorance can be attributed to malice, or at least the effects are the same as malice, because the person will not listen to reason, logic, or facts.
