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

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.”

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.

“my dad did — killed himself”

Your father was a coward and psycho who didn’t have the guts to live his life. My dad wasn’t. Live with with it, you Nazi prick.

Be cool. We are bitchin about the treatment the Iron Lady received from the libs. Are we not just a bit better than the sleaze balls?

I hate to see anyone lose a father. Mine died when I was 14. I never had the chance to really know him. I still miss him!

He’s also an idiot (yeah, it goes without saying), because there’s no 3-day waiting period for the state of Nevada. In NV, everywhere but Clark county (Las vegas, primarily), you can go to the store/dealer, fill out the paperwork, and walk right out with your purchase.
