Posted on 09/17/2013 8:00:14 AM PDT by yoe
ust hours after the deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, gun control advocates tried to reignite the national debate over gun laws that had only just subsided.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and a longtime gun control advocate, denounced the litany of massacres over the past few years and asked rhetorically, When will enough be enough?
[snip] The National Rifle Association had no comment on Monday, and pro-gun groups generally take the stance that days of particularly shocking crimes are not the time to discuss policy. Popular conservative blogger and former CNN commentator Erick Erickson admonished the rush to politicize the shooting, saying seriously people, grow up.

And it gets even better...
So...what I really want to know is this - WHO is the Schmucky Little Puke who originally threaded an AR15 meme into the story, and where did it first develop???
“What is an AR 15 shotgun?”
“WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”
If CNN (etc) said the gunman utilized an BG-23, the usual suspects would demand the immediate outlawing of the BG-23.
At least 3 Democrats would join in introducing such a bill.
Low information voters/people
AR15 makes a better story, its scary sounding, like like the Russian Mob.
Shotgun makes us think of the Beverly Hillbillies. Old Jed hunting Muskrat.
The 12 gauge from hell...
3900 fps from a shotgun? You shoot it, I’ll watch!
Sure, the shooter had an obvious mental health problem. Ban guns, that will fix it.
It's about the crazy people, not the guns.
I’m just grateful he didn’t rent a large dump truck, fill it with sand and then go plowing through (insert targets here).
The biggest threat to our society today is Christian tea-party members buying assault rifles through the gun-show loophole.
The terrible events of yesterday show that we need to crack down on those people.
Ah... the control freaks who can’t quite get their hands around us yet get excited over the sight of blood and certainly did hope for an AR-15 in the mix. It doesn’t really matter who said it. We knew that somebody would. Thieves and liars. I wouldn’t piss on them if they were on fire.
“...It doesnt really matter who said it. We knew that somebody would...”
I suppose you are correct; it would be interesting, though, to be able to piece together who threaded it into to the story, though; this way, if something like this happens again, that particular “reporter” is automatically discredited for spreading false information.
Ahh, our wonderful little resident Bolshevik Limey bastid... Piers Morgan...
Poor misguided little limey... he REALLY has a hard-on for AR15s and Glocks...
We need to get Ted Nugent back on his show to set him straight again.
Good ol’ Piers Morgan...
Still love the exchange he had with Uncle Teddy... Piers’ face was quivering - QUIVERING, I say - with righteous indignation and rage... and Teddy was just laying into him.
Guess he’s not used to be spoken to like that. It was a beautiful thing to see.
I did hear about that. :-) Piers probably won’t agree to another interview with Nugent... not after that beating. :-)
“...not after that beating....”
Never in recent memory have the words “Bitch Slapped” been more appropriate.
Teddy gave him “Da Pimp Hand” ... it is STRONG with Ted... haha!
I love Ted. :-) He’s one of my heros! :-)
Yknow, a lot of this problem is self-inflicted. We as gun owners have a real bad tendency to hide our light under a bushel basket. That is to say that most gun owners dont carry and those that do tend to carry concealed. Which might be OK from a tactical perspective, but in the long run just undercuts our position. Very few gun owners Open Carry the Tools of Liberty. And its not helping us one little bit.
Ask yourself: would the kind of senseless butchery weve seen in CT and DC and CO and other places have occurred if even 10% of the population Open Carried?
No, it probably would not.
And we also have to ask whether we would even be hearing the tired bleatings of the gun grabbers if 10% of the population Open Carried?
No, we probably would not.
So while we complain about the gun grabbers and fight them politically, it continues to be something of a rearguard effort. We could largely eliminate violent crime and get marginalize the gun grabbers in one fell swoop if just say one out of 4 or one out of 5 gunowners would just openly and proudly carry the Tools of Liberty as they went about their day to day business.
