Ban Unicorns Rapid-Poopin’ Skittles!
That was after Oprah finished her hour-long soft-shoe performance at last week’s Super Bowl Half-time, grabbed her trademark 9-iron to hit the game-winning home run, and announced her next career change to lettuce picker in AZ.
SCHIEFFER: What about — what about the idea that — which some gun rights supporters cite — they say, “Look, all of this is just to make people feel good. It’s just, kind of, feel-good legislation, that, in the end, it’s not going to stop these kinds of incidents?
FEINSTEIN: Well, that’s absolutely not true. What we are trying to do is overall see that weapons — I would like to see them all registered — it’s not in our bill — but see that weapons are in the hands of responsible citizens, that they are used legally, not illegally, that they do not fall into the hands of gangs.
Do you realize we have 150,000-plus gang members in this nation? When they go up against the police, it’s generally an AK-47. You realize that police have had to break into gun stores to get weapons that would be stronger than the adversary they had? Do you realize that one out of every five law enforcement officers that’s killed is killed with an assault weapon? Do you need assault weapons? These are weapons that are made to kill large numbers of people in close combat. And what we have found, that, now, with the AR-15, they have a slide stock which you put in. It’s legal. And it makes the gun act fully automatic.
“Do you need assault weapons?” Well if there are 150,000 gang members with “assauuuult” weapons out there — Hell Yeah!
If “one out of every five law enforcement officers that’s killed is killed with an ‘assauuuult’ weapon” — Hell Yeah!
If police are having “to break into gun stores to get weapons that would be stronger than the adversary they had” — Oh HELL Yeah.
In fact – given that – I would support an “required carry” for all citizens. If I live in Oakland, Detroit, Chicago, DC, or any other of the gang-soaked areas, take that “Free Obobo Fone” money an buy everyone a nice, everyday AK — with one of those magykkal stocks that makes it “act” fully auto. Up-arm the citizenry and that’ll take care of your “gang problem” toot sweet.
Here’s another reason:
SCHIEFFER: Let me change the subject just quickly because you’re also chairman of the Intelligence Committee. We’ve got some bad stuff, apparently, going on in Mali and other places. You know, a couple of months ago, people were saying we’d basically won the war on terror. How much of a threat do you think terrorism is right now?
FEINSTEIN: I think it remains a real threat. I do not believe it has gone away. I believe there’s now — this is just my belief — an effort to establish a beachhead for terrorism, a joining together of terrorist organizations. I think Benghazi was a small symptom of that, in northern Africa, in Mali, in other countries in that area. I compliment the French for taking vigorous action. I believe very strongly what the United States needs to do is put together our allies into an alliance, bring in Russia, bring in China. Because I think it’s to the interest of civilized countries to have an apparatus to be able to take down and rend asunder terrorist groups wherever they appear.
And if you think terrifying terrorists are gonna “appear” in NYC, DC, ChiTown, or Springfield, up-arm the the citizenry. Bet ya Acccchmed and his pals don’t even show! [Hey - it worked with Tojo… or someone...]
New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly:
…in most urban centers throughout America, the problem really is concealable handguns. Only 2 percent of the people that we’ve arrested for guns in the last two years have had assault weapons…
…But the problem is the handgun. Sixty percent of the murders in New York City are caused by handguns. And we simply have too many of them, even though, last year, we had a record low in murders in New York City, and a record low in shootings, it’s still way too many.
So your answer is to disarm the Law-Abiding and leave them as sitting ducks for the Criminals.
