...and the rest of the Democrat caucus GASPED. This is the very last thing they want.
You only need to look at Mexico to know that you can NEVER stop those that want weapons and ammo. They WILL get them and they WILL use them, no matter how many laws you create.
Effing idiots, the whole friggin lot of them.
Well if Harry is against it I guess it will go nowhere.
Everything's gonna be backordered, thanks to these morons....
They can shove it up their collective smelly Obamas.
I almost wish they would go ahead and try (that’s try) to ban weapons, ammo, etc.
I’ll not speak of the consequences.
I haven’t heard how many rounds exactly that he did shoot, but at some point he would have reached a maximum utility after which it wouldn’t mater whether he had 6000, or 200, or 600,000 rounds of ammunition. Apparently, he only needed 60 to create the carnage that he did, so any law regarding the possession of ammunition would have to set a really low level to be considered efeective. The goal would have to be one round per person to prevent killing more than one other person. It should also be noted that the shooter would not be constrained by legal limits on ammunition possession because he was a criminal, and criminals are, by definition, not bound by laws.
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (N.Y.) said the new law would make the sale of ammunition safer for criminals and politicians who are sick and tired of the ease with which law-abiding citizens can now anonymously stockpile for protection against mass murder, in a statement released Saturday.
(edited for accuracy)
Holmes may have bought 6,000 rounds, but only took a few hudred to do his deed. None of the past massacres involved thousands of rounds.
The Republicans need to brand the entire Dem party with this. Hang it around their necks at election time.
How much ammop did he actually expend in order to do the damage he did?
These politicians are ****ing morons of the worst sort.
Good thing that the nut chose the hundred 100 rd 'beta mag' that is prone to jam instead of regular 20 or 30 rd magazines or the carnage would have been much worse.
If words are the atoms of the First Amendment, then ammo is the atom of the Second.
Political figures who relentlessly attempt to suppress one part of the Constitution they don’t like cannot be trusted wih the remander.
PS does Lautenberg know what day of the week it is?
Lautenberg is so left wing he makes Obama seem almost
centrist and McCarthy is probably crazier than the shooter
Neither one can do anything except knee jerk react to events. And neither one of them can carry on a coherent conversation when interviewed by even the friendliest of
Wow, libs are so much smarter than we.
All we had to do in Afghanistan was to have their legislature pass a ban on IEDs.
“Reid (D-Nev.) said last week that he does not intend to bring gun control legislation to the floor and President Obama has been reluctant”
You pussies don’t have the balls to do it!
Go ahead, we triple-dog dare you ...
(I’m sick and tired of Dims hesitating to grab that 2nd amend. third rail.)
If we can be forced to purchase insurance, we can most definitely be forced to buy ammo. This legislation would drive this horrendous fact home. I'm seriously going to recommend this to my rep. Someone has to rub this profligate government's face in the ridiculousness of it all.
