For the record, I have never pledged allegiance to “ISIS” and will never pledge allegiance to “ISIS” no matter what some undisclosed law enforcement source says “off the record” or what some Facebook administrative undisclosed source says about my Facebook account.
Just putting that out there.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich proposed the creation of a new version of the controversial House Un-American Activities Committee to root out American citizens who plan to commit terrorist attacks in the U.S.“We originally created the House Un-American Activities Committee to go after Nazis. We passed several laws in 1938 and 1939 to go after Nazis and we made it illegal to help the Nazis. We’re going to presently have to go take the similar steps here,” Gingrich said in a Monday appearance on “Fox and Friends.” […] In 1959, former President Harry Truman infamously called the committee “the most un-American thing in the country today.” TPM
There are currently about 350 million registered firearms in this country. About 10 million of them are AR-15 type weapons. Banning the sale of what they call “assault rifles” will do nothing to stem the tide of gun violence in America and legislators are fully aware of that fact. Of course, if you pay the mob to protect your business from fire damage and notice the next month there are far fewer fires started in your bar, I guess maybe it might look to an uninformed outsider that their fire insurance seems to do the trick while other, more worldly observers roll their eyes and say nothing.
“There are some 350 million guns in America, including as many as 10 million AR-15 rifles like the one used in Orlando. If Democrats want a ban to have any chance of working, they will have to vote for and enforce a nationwide program of confiscation. The ban Democrats are pushing would be meaningless.” WSJ
Yesterday, a congress critter used his special “I was in the military” super-power to suggest these “assault rifles” have no place on American streets. Thanks to the newly formed Veterans Coalition for Common Sense gun-grabbing lobbying group (led by convicted criminal Gen. David Petraeus and “death squad poster boy” Stanley McCrystal), the marriage of vets and gun-grabbing Dems seems to be taking off. He did so by posting a picture of him “making Iraq safe for Democracy” and holding onto an assault rifle while doing it.
I wonder what our Iraq “hero” turned congress-critter thinks about these assault rifles on American streets.
Hard to tell the difference between the streets of Iraq and those of Orlando sometimes, isn’t it?
I guess the congressman doesn’t care about these guys because they dress like he did.
So what is really happening here with this push for this legislation? What is it all about? Guns? Rights? A New House Un-American Activities Committee?
