Gun Grabbing Congress Critters Come Out of Woodwork After Giffords Shooting
January 11, 2011
The shooting of Rep. Giffords and others by a mentally deranged man in Arizona has brought anti-Second Amendment ghouls out of the shadows.
Dedicated gun-grabber Sen. Frank Lautenberg, a New Jersey Democrat, is renewing his effort to chisel away at the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. “The only reason to have 33 bullets loaded in a handgun is to kill a lot of people very quickly. These high-capacity clips simply should not be on the market,” Lautenberg said on Monday following the weekend shooting.
MSNBC, outraged over Second Amendment, interviews gun-grabber Carolyn McCarthy.
The poster child for the destruction of the Second Amendment, New York Democrat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, has also crawled out of the shadows. She announced plans to introduce legislation aimed squarely at the right of Americans to own firearms.
California Democrat Dianne Feinstein has joined McCarthy in the renewed effort to rob Americans of their right to own firearms. Feinstein wrote the 1994 assault weapons ban, which outlawed gun clips holding more than 10 bullets. The law expired in 2004.
McCarthy’s enemies of liberty will team up with establishment Republicans in a new effort to trash the Second Amendment. A McCarthy aide said her office was consulting with newly anointed House Speaker John Boehner’s office.
As should be expected, the Brady Campaign exploited the incident to attack the right of Americans to own firearms. Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, said in a statement that “if Congress had not allowed the ‘Assault Weapons Ban’ to expire in 2004, the shooter [Loughner] would only have been able to get off 10 rounds without reloading. Instead, he was able to fire at least 20 rounds from his 30-round clip.”
