Our liberal lords want to be protected from the peasants... and while they’re at it, they want to take away our 2nd Amendment rights.
HELL, NO! OVER OUR DEAD BODIES!!!
I never will comprehend why those who want to ban firearms can’t comprehend that those who want to kill someone already plan on breaking the law and aren’t going to quibble over a gun law!! All these laws do is disarm those who would protect themselves and their loved ones. Liberalism is not being able to take something to its logical end from a specific premise.
"Only criminals should have guns!"
What, 20,000 gun laws aren’t enough?
Everything this cretin did in Arizona is ALREADY illegal.
At one time I had a lot of hope for Cantor but he’s striking me as being way too soft.
I knew someone was going to bash Cantor. I kinda liked what he had to say. It was a slam at Pelosi and the Democrats. See I want him to read EVERYTHING no matter if he agrees with or doesn’t agree with the legislation. I am a supervisor for twenty Sailors and they will request all kinds of things from liberty, leave, schools, second jobs, etc. They do a request and I read each request even if I don’t agree with what they are asking. It is just the right thing to do. If you think about it, this was a total slam on Pelosi.....you have to see the humor in it. Canton will vote it down but he is doing the right thing by reading it.
No, KIng needs a primary challenge. What a moron!
Yep. The 1000’ gun-free zones works really well for schools.
“Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) announced plans Tuesday to introduce legislation prohibiting people from carrying guns within 1,000 feet of members of Congress.”
My first reaction to that was - will that also apply to gun-toting SEIU thugs at town hall meetings???
You make some excellent points and I hope someone in our new Congress thinks of them as well.
I was shocked and disappointed when I saw today that Pete King proposed this. He’s usually so outspoken about terrorism and radical Islam that I don’t know what he was thinking here.
“Like any manager, expect Cantor to be respectful of his troops in public — especially when discussing their actions with the press.”
Indeed, I hope that’s the case, because I’ve been having a lot of doubts about Cantor lately.
First, it's 1,000 feet for members of Congress. Next it will be 1,000 feet from any elected member of any level of government. When that happens, there will not be anyone who could possibly own (or possess) any gun in any manner that would not be illegal since it would be impossible to be in any area that is not 1,000 feet from some type of elected official, from the federal level down to the local level.
What a great plan to circumvent the 2nd Amendment!
"A spokesman for the National Rifle Association, Andrew Arulanandam, said this week that it would be inappropriate for the group to comment on potential reforms so soon after the tragedy."
It would be "inappropriate" would it???????? Just when would it be appropriate?
The NRA has become gutless and during my long lifetime I supported the organization with vigor. Now it has become politically correct and walks on "political eggshells" and is afraid to offending it's adversaries.
Not the right time my butt...it is exactly the right time for them to speak out loudly and often for we are engaged in a total war with those who wish to disarm us in order to make us slaves to the government. If the NRA does not have the stomach to fight it, then it's time to find (or organize) a movement that will.
Why dont we have a rule that politicians have to stay 1000 feet away from our money?
The loons are only making themselves look stupid and opportunisitc making allegations and pushing new laws before the dead are in the ground. Even some of my liberal friends can see this and they are becoming quite vocal against their own side about this stupidity.
If this prohibition includes the Secret Service as well, I'm all for it.
I hope The Human Tear duct can keep a tight reign on the RINO’s in the House.
SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
End of story.
King is on the Homeland Security Committee. This kind of stupidity might explain why we are all being ritually sexually molested at our airports now.
All the Republicans (and Lieberman) who have been involved in creating extreme “safety” measures and expanding the meaning of terrorism from Islamic terrorists to politically determined “domestic terrorists”, need to be removed from anything to do with fighting terrorism at this point.
They have carelessly betrayed the American people and the constitution with their stupidity - political correctness. King is still advancing that ball of molestating the Bill of Rights in the name of “safety” even after the election.
