don’t let the barn door hit your horse’s ass on the way out

Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.

[Chuckie] released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium …
[and] says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won’t help if more of them have recently been sold.

Wellp …
since every friggin’ semi-auto rifle on the shelves has been scarfed up by peasants fearful of their government,
I’d say that “it won’t help if more [all] of them have recently [already] been sold.”

Oh, and who’s gonna cover their payrolls while they “voluntarily” suspend their businesses while the Progressive enlightened and elites dither, fiddle, and whine in their signature orgy of inept legislative centipedalism?

F’n jackass … [/sottovoce]

Sorry, I only had room to mix two metaphors in the headline.
I promise to try harder next time.
(What? Okay, one metaphor, one adage, and one pun. Yeah, now I feel better.)

    Voices on the radio say that wally world is allegedly suspending ammo sales for similar reasons.

    I say they are flat out and backordered.

    Get Schumer [spit] within 50 ft. of a microphone and he’ll ooze right up to it and slime everything within range. I do recall a woman who was present at the ‘Gun Free’[spit] Luby’s Texas massacre testifying about having to leave her gun in the car and was thereby unable to defend herself and her parents from the murderer. The murderer killed both parents in the incident, and in her testimony
    the woman told Schumer right to his face that guns were not only to protect people from such incidents, but to protect citizens from “people like you [Schumer]“. She was so dead on the truth, he did not say a word. For just once, the unctuous bastard’s ooze well was dry.

    I was born and raised in upstate NY and called it home for 40 years. From Rockefeller through Hugh Carey to the Cuomos the clowns in between it’s been something to watch. The Senators are no better with Javits, Bobby Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Schumer etc., they’ve pretty much been represented by big mouthed Pinkos at the federal level. Never mind what people say, watch what they do – many, many have voted with their feet. Somethings are just too big to change and you have to go elsewhere.

    ^ Yeah. Where the hell did that one come from anyway?

    Did I ever tell you about the time when I was smuggling dope out of the country? It was still pretty scary. I learned after the first couple of times that ferns weren’t really all they were cracked-up to be when it came to wiping after you just had the poop scared out of you.

    I made it a point to carry proper tissue after that.

    Someone else contacted Walmart PR this morning, no such thing is happening. Backorders and high prices, that’s all.

    Also, “assault weapons,” according to the Army, are for assaulting positions. You know, grenade launchers and flamethrowers.

    Schumer is asking people to stop selling lawful goods based on a cosmetic legislative description that hasn’t been written yet.

    On a related not, Schumer is a psychotic control freak with delusions of adequacy.

    I thought Shumer’s comments most interesting from a
    psychopathological perspective. That’s the first I’ve heard of
    any of his spewings. I’m definitely adding him to my list
    of ‘suspect psychotics’ re-elected to Congress & other
    branches of gubbmint, by possibly insane voters.
    I just got a book titled “The Liberal Mind”. Subtitle,
    “The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”.

    Prolly should be classified as ‘political science’ today!

    I saw Shumer smugly mocking some guy who didn’t think that an “internal security force, every bit as strong and as well-funded as our military” was a very good idea. He was mocking him.

    He is a complete and dangerous scumbag.
