Harry Reid cites fatherís suicide in gun debate
Politico ^ | 04/09/2013 | By GINGER GIBSON

Posted on 04/09/2013 12:27:10 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid again took the Senate floor to make a very personal plea on Tuesday morning for a vote on gun control legislation.

~snip~

“In Nevada, if you purchase a handgun, you have to wait three days to pick it up,” Reid said. “And it is believed that alone has saved the lives of many people. Sometimes people in a fit of passion will purchase a handgun to do bad things with it, Mr. President, even as my dad did — killed himself. Waiting a few days helps.”

Having a son like ol’ Harry could certainly be very devastating to any man.

Too bad Pedo Harry won’t follow his dad’s steps.

Too bad it’s not “like father, like son.”

he did

for many years Biden enhanced the sob story by saying or implying his wife was killed by a drunk driver

according to the daughter of the truck driver (not drunkl never even tested, no lawsuit ever filed by state attorney general Biden) his grief at the deaths of the woman and child (Biden’s wife pulled out in front of him) was further ruined by Biden’s smarmy self-serving lie

Reid is a loon.

Maybe, but he is still able to conduct the regime's business in the Senate effectively enough. Yet this news item has helped solidify my opinion that Harry is not mentally or emotionally healthy. He's not the only nutty Senator, though.

Knowing I was responsible for siring the likes of Harry Reid would cause me to do the deed, even if I had to bludgeon myself for days with a rusty butter knife.

What Reid inadvertently did was admit that his family has a history of mental problems.

Better if he’d taken out Harry as a warmup act.

If Dingy Harry was your son wouldn’t you commit suicide?

Was your father depressed that you're a mob-connected criminal, Harry?

You don’t need a gun to killyourself!

My dad did it by simply refusing any food or water until he died.

Joe Biden RUINED the truck driver that his wife PULLED OUT ON, thereby causing HER OWN DEATH and that of a child!!

The Driver was RUINED, never able to get a job, even thought it was NOT HIS FAULT, but Because Joe kept BLAMING him instead of SHUTTING up about how careless his wife was, he was ruined and went to the grave at a fairly early age.

Not until Joe was picked for VP did people set the record straight and he has Finally SHUT UP!! I DETEST HIM FOR WHAT HE DID.
