As inevitable as fried Twinkies at Rosie O’Donnell’s breakfast table, democrats are already seeking to capitalize on the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ., by pushing for further constraints to the Second Amendment.
Increasing gun control is just a knee-jerk reaction with these people. It doesn’t matter that Jared Loughner would have been able to legally buy a gun under the new legislation Carolyn McCarthy, D-NY, and others want introduced. It doesn’t matter that he could have purchased the same weapon if Clinton’s “assault weapons” ban was still in place.
Some people may want to say that he couldn’t have fired so many shots if he had been limited to the 10-round magazines that were mandated by the assault weapons ban. That’s a crock. The Virginia Tech shootings showed us how to fire more rounds than what is in your magazine – you reload.
You’ve especially got to love Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley telling people how many cartridges they do or don’t need to defend themselves or their loved ones. How nice it must be to have all the answers to everyone’s problems. How wonderful to be part of the privileged few that breathe that rare air and provide solutions for the common folk at the base of the mountain.
Please don’t fall for any of this crap. Take a few moments to review the differences between what liberals and the media say about firearms and what the facts really are. Perhaps the GOP will show enough spine not to bring any of this drivel to the floor.
