It is incompatable with true American values.
So why is this puke in Congress? Did we forget to Americanize a district in New York City or something.
>>should we presume he doesnt know what happened in Nazi Germany back in 1938 too . . . ?
I would assume that he does know and he thinks that its a great idea. Communist politicians like him are scum, and the people who elect them are pathetic herd animals who want to stand around eating free food until its their time to get in line and walk up that chute to the slaughterhouse.
Pay no attention to Nadler. He is getting deluged with anti-gun petitions, e-mails, and phone calls from his commie district.
Not that he doesn’t agree, of course; after all, he thinks Obama is not far left enough. But he is under particular pressure now to talk the talk.
There are reports that every single conversation in his district for the past week has been about how terrible guns are.
Is that like “legitimate Rape”?
Come & take them, Fatso.
Is that the equivalent of “legitimate rape” ??
Oh wait, it was a LIBERAL who made a dumb remark? Never mind, the media isn’t interested.
Yes giving the State sole access to weapons has worked out SO well in history...
Yep, spoken like a true fascist....
So who's to say what violence is legitimate?Crooked Federal Prosecuters who know about the Fast and Furious scandle and are not pursuing the people who instigated the selling of Real assault rifles to drug dealers.
Also are we now supposed to trust Law Enforcement agencies of any stripe that can break into your home under color of the law and not only terrify your family but place their lives at risk.
To hell with that.If these Government entities want to possess these high powered toys,I want the ability to have those same toys to defend myself or others should clear thinking on their part go overboard.
After-all,They work for me the tax payer.I don't work for them.
Nadler commenting on anything high-capacity invites too many jokes.
Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American . . . . The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.

Wow... I think they put that stomach LAP-BAND around his brain...
Only them nice NKVD, GESTAPO, CHEKA, NAZI, GRU, Homeland Security, CIA, FBI types should have effective weaponry.
Certainly not the great unwashed on the front lines who ACTUALLY NEED IT.
Can you believe this a$$clown has actually come out and stated what he really thinks? His statement is completely 180 degrees out of phase with the Founders’ views of the militia being the whole people, and the ability of the people to keep an evil standing army in check.
This is twisting the actual term used by political scientists, as I understand it. The term is "a monopoly on organized violence" which I believe allows violence in self defense that is not planned beforehand, hence not organized.
In the case of the horrible events at Sandy Hook, it took the monopolist government protection personnel at least 7 minutes to respond to calls for help. Those professionals did not have to discharge their weapons because the killing and wounding had already been accomplished to the satisfaction of the murderer.
Had the murderer been only able to bring a baseball bat, he would have just killed maybe half as many children.
It is true that when seconds count, police help is only minutes away. A recent survey of almost 100 mass shooting events showed that when it was terminated by police on average 14 people were murdered and when it was terminated by someone on site, less than 4 people were murdered. Moreover, with a single exception, these mass murders took place in gun-free zones.
Given the left’s reaction to the suggestion that it is prudent to have at least one person at a school who is armed, it is clear that all this gun-control feeding frenzy is far more targeted (to borrow a word) at grabbing guns than to increasing the safety of school children.
The State Ought to Have a Monopoly on Legitimate Violence
Statist Irony Alert
Nadler is in denial of the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment, and why we need it.
The 1st Amendment restricts Congress from passing laws in the proscribed areas of life, but the 2nd Amendment restricts ALL governments, federal, state, and local, from infringing on the people’s right to keep and bear arms.
Neither amendment restricts the people in any way.
(To get picky with what I just wrote, the 1st does say Congress can’t pass laws restricting the people’s right to PEACEABLY assemble, so it is an implied restriction on the people, saying it only applies if the people assemble peaceably. Note the difference between peacefully and peaceably, though.)
Hide your guns. Don’t cooperate. Passive resistance. This is why we have a Second Amendment. Assert your constitutional rights by not cooperating peacefully.
