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.

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.
