It’s not very often someone in the media calls out a Democrat Senator on their anti-gun lies and/or rhetoric (that is usually more lies). So kudos to Jon Karl and LOL at Sen. Murphy from Connecticut.
Jon Karl: Your proposal would have done nothing in the case of Orlando, it would have done nothing to stop the killing in San Bernardino. And in fact, it was unrelated to the killing in Newtown. So why — why are we focusing on things that have nothing to do with the massacres we’re responding to?
Sen. Chris Murphy: …we can’t get into the trap in which we are forced to defend our proposal simply because it didn’t stop the last tragedy.
Jon Karl: But why can’t you simply pass a provision that says that, “anybody who’s on a terrorist watch list or has been on a terrorist watch list for the last five years, tries to buy a gun, the FBI is automatically notified?” I mean at, at least they can follow the person, track the person. Why can’t Congress at least do that?
Sen. Chris Murphy: …
Okay, so that wasn’t his actual response, but that’s what I heard him say. It was in his eyes.
Question for Senator Guns Are Mean: if you’re proposal isn’t going to work, why go forward?
Yes, I admit that was a purely rhetorical question, which serves as a slow pitched ball coming right down center plate. Except I’m not using a Louisville slugger. I’m driving a Mack Truck.
Of course gun control measures will not work. They’re not meant to work. If you’re a stray leftist reading this website with the sole purpose of trolling, the notion that some of our angels in government would purposefully and intentionally propose legislation they know will fail is news to you. What do you mean, gun control won’t work? WE MUST GET GUNZ OFF TEH STREETZ!
The purpose of gun control isn’t to limit “gun violence.” That’s just what leftists tell n00bs in desperate need for Hooked on Phonics. Gun control serves multiple purposes:
- To virtue-signal to the far left base that the Democrats have super big feeling hearts and are trying to stop the boom-boom sticks from taking over the world with their scary blackness and pistol grips.
- To limit or remove the Constitutionally protected gun rights of law-abiding Americans.
- Reason 2 times eleventy-million bajillion.
Because gun control–the limiting of gun access to law-abiding Americans (semi-automatic or scary black rifle limitations included)–does not, on the whole, make anyone safer. Contrary to pervasive myths, limiting someone’s right to defend oneself creates a crime haven for law-breaking dingleberries, who are free to create mayhem without consequence. See any city or state with strict “gun control.” Like California.
Senator Guns are Mean has admitted his proposal maybe wouldn’t have stopped the tragedy in Orlando. He ADMITS it. What are we to conclude, therefore, his real reason is for pushing legislation? Deduction dictates reasons two and three listed above. Limiting the gun rights of law-abiding Americans. And no, you’re not just paranoid.
Don’t be a senseless, mindless dingleberry. Get the facts on the “gunshow loophole” today. Call 1-800-No-Idiots.
