Democratic Lawmaker Expresses Disdain For Anyone Who Likes Guns, Bibles

1 Shares

Liking firearms and the 2nd Amendment protections which allow you to own them makes you a supporter of mass murder, according to Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.).

Cohen, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said during a recent MSNBC appearance that he was not surprised by the September 16th mass shooting at the Washington Naval Yard. He said the tragic event resulted directly from a lack of action on gun-control legislation following the shootings in Newtown, Conn.

“It’s no Newtown. People are almost inured to it, because they’ve seen what happened in the Senate, and seen the votes can’t be cobbled together,” he said of the impact the most recent shooting had on members of the House.

Cohen went on to insult any of his colleagues who support the 2nd Amendment.

“And in the House, on the Judiciary Committee, which I sit on, that’s Murderers’ Row; that’s Foxx, Gehrig and Ruth. They all like their guns,” he said.

Cohen added, “I think their guns are next there to their Bibles. I’m not sure which they find more important to them.”

With regard to Republicans, he concluded, “I think guns trump Bibles on that side of the aisle.”

    “Democratic Lawmaker Expresses Disdain For Anyone Who Likes Guns, Bibles”
    Since Alex Jones invaded Bohemian Grove and video taped our Demoncrat leadership worshiping demonic totems and satanic goat head symbols it is no surprise these Satanist Lucy scum despise the Bible, reject GOD and want to disarm every citizen.
    When the goal is power and control, then subjection to enslavement…its always best to disarm the intended slaves first.

      And good luck on that one…disarming us. Not without a fight.

      • former_leo

        Good luck with that. They will disarm us because a lot of people talk about fighting it but do nothing at all. The best way to fight them is to vote them out of office. The same idiots keep getting elected because a large number of legal voters don’t vote and a great many illegal voters do.

    That’s one seriously messed up dude! Guns and Bibles have been a part of this countries culture ever since it’s founding and both have served to enhance us as the free individuals we strive to be. Only a truly evil mind could conjure up such hatred for Bibles, guns, and those of us who embrace them.

  • NO PRO HOMO AGENDA

    This ignoramus & all the other gun control zealots, and many 2nd amendment supporters,too seemed to miss the big point about this last one. We don’t need more laws, we desperately NEED TO ENFORCE THOSE ALREADY ON THE BOOKS!! This guy never should have got a gun legally, but he did. It’s not only gun control , but on most issues we don’t need more laws, but to enforce those already in place! As long as they are not enforced correctly, what good does it do to add more?

    Hey, Coney, perhaps if one of your disdainful Bible toting gun owners was there & it was not a gun free zone, he could’ve stopped the guy!!

    • Cashu

      As a great man once said, “The only way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man WITH A GUN.”

      Of course, that logic is just too pure for liberals. If they try to get their noodle around a basic concept like that, they chance having their noodle explode…

      Cashu

      =======================

      • Deerinwater

        There are many ways to stop men , ~ bad or good, it’s pretty much the same with either.

        As for logic and who possess it. ~ what can I say, read your own posting? I really don’t see the market cornered by any political affiliation. ~ And clearly not leadership on the “Right” as they attempt to turn loses into wins ~ with only words and lip service.

        What great man said such a thing? ~ There are all kinds and forms ~ of cute saying ~ two line zingers that some “great man said”. that personifies quaint over simplified logic.

        “When the officers was asked why he carried a 45 , the response was , “They don’t make a 46. ” hahaha!

        • Cashu

          Believe it was Wayne LaPierre a couple years ago, if not mistaken. And don’t try to say the former president of the NRA is not a great man. Anyone who rigorously defends the Bill of Rights is great in any American’s mind… except possibly the communists like Ditsy Diane Feinstein and others of her ilk.

          I don’t expect you to understand what conservative logic is, Deer. As I mentioned, you’d be putting your noodle at risk trying to get around the concept.

          However, officially disarming a military establishment as policy seems to be totally illogical when you consider that, that could be an invitation to a cracked gourd. Cracked or not, they are fully aware that armed people might shoot back, and even the worst raving lunatic will take that possibility into consideration when choosing a venue for violence. After all, they really want to do what they want to do without any chance of real opposition, even if they plan to off themselves at the end of their planned mayhem.

          And you’re wrong about the quote also. When that quote was made, 50 caliber pistols were not unknown. Most folks were intelligent enough to forgo owning one, but my grandfather wasn’t too bright to pass one by. However, I WAS smart enough to decline to test it out. My cousin now owns it, and cherishes the memories of our grandfather…

  • Ivan Pistov

    I never like the idea that is espoused by many, that is, “enforce the laws on the books”. This assumes that all the laws already on the books are acceptable. They are NOT. For example, many of the provisions of the 1934 NFA and the 1968 GCA ar not acceptable, and additions and amendments to the GCA are mostly not acceptable. And every year they are added to, subtly, under the table, and ATF keeps changing the rules and moving the goalposts. So before you wish for this, think hard about it.

    • NO PRO HOMO AGENDA

      I hear ‘ya, but good luck trying to get laws off the books on this issue!!

  • jdn

    Shame is brought to Tennessee , lets see if they can correct this problem . Last I heard the people in that state were pro God and guns . We will see come election time , or maybe they are the next New York or California .

    • Cashu

      Ninety-five percent of Tennessee are very conservative, I would say nearly Libertarian for the most part. The trouble is, we have a few urban areas where the criminal class, the welfare class and the educationally challenged mostly reside. For various reasons, race, dependency on EBT cards, etc., those areas tend to elect extreme socialistic liberals. In a way, they are preyed upon by slick oligarchic liberals who have learned how to exploit their lack of understanding of the benefit of self-reliance, their politician-induced class hatred and the general hopelessness of their situation. Sometimes they are individual manipulators of the hoi polloi, sometimes they are a dynastic family of exploiters, but once in power, they are extremely difficult to challenge because of the dynamics of dependency and ignorance in their constituents.

      Please don’t cast aspersions on our great conservative state because of the few who make headlines like that. We’re just as embarrassed for those fools as you are angered by their stupidity on a national stage.

      As long as democraps know how to enslave the minds of their core constituency, wherever they number a certain percentage, they will flourish, not only in Tennessee, but everywhere in the country. I give you New York, New Jersey, Calyfornya and the socialist republic of Illinois…

        Well,?~ not all of them play with snakes.

        • Cashu

          I suggest you come on down to Tennessee and present your point of view vis-a-vis “Dixiecrats.” I’m certain you’ll be violently dissuaded of that opinion in short order. We don’t appreciate people who call us names behind our back and we’re quick to set someone straight who has the temerity to try to do so to our faces.

          The south is proud to have been backers of democrats when they were for America, especially in light of southern dislike for Lincoln republicans. They were quick to change when it became apparent that democrats were no longer pro-America. Most of us are now well beyond the false promise of republicans.

          And we don’t have any time for socialist parasites down here. We can, in the short term, tolerate folks who need a hand up, but they don’t find much sympathy if they make a long-term habit of it in most of the state outside of the major urban areas.

          Come on down, Deer, with that chip on your shoulder. We’ll treat you right…

  • Dottore

    I wish I could state that I am shocked that such a man as Cohen, in such a responsible position, could or rather, chooses to be so ill informed when it comes to the subject of gun control and more importantly, our Second Amendment rights. Perhaps Mr. Cohen is unaware of the Harvard Study titled “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” which looks at figures for “intentional deaths” throughout continental Europe and juxtaposes them with the U.S. to show that more gun control does not necessarily lead to lower death rates or violent crime.

    Because the findings so clearly demonstrate that more gun laws may in fact increase death rates, the study says that “the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths” is wrong.

    For example, when the study shows numbers for Eastern European gun ownership and corresponding murder rates, it is readily apparent that less guns to do not mean less death. In Russia, where the rate of gun ownership is 4,000 per 100,000 inhabitants, the murder rate was 20.52 per 100,000 in 2002. That same year in Finland, where the rater of gun ownership is exceedingly higher–39,000 per 100,000–the murder rate was almost nil, at 1.98 per 100,000.

    This is by far not the only study which indicates that the myth of more gun control equals less violent crime is just that; a myth. He has only to look at the dismal failures found in Washington DC and Chicago, two of the most dangerous places in the United States, which also happen to have some of the strictest gun control in place. But Mr. Cohen knows all this. He is most likely beholden to some oligarchic ideal which promotes a dichotomy of Union. It must be easy for Mr. Cohen to brush aside the idea of United States citizens, dealing with an over reaching, bloated, corrupt, egotistical federal government, which has failed to protect them (at some of their most basic needs), wanting to protect themselves, given the fact that Mr. Cohen is afforded armed security, 24/7 at our expense.

    Mr. Cohen should especially take heed of the adage put forth by George Santayana :” Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Hitler, Stalin and countless other mad men, all made the confiscation of guns priority 1, before they began their rule of tyranny.

    But perhaps I give Mr. Cohen too much credit? Perhaps he really is just another one of the many idiots who inhabit Capitol Hill.

    • mathis1689

      Rick Santorum Filing for Divorce over DOMA?

      Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum filed for divorce today.

      According to papers signed by an Allegheny County judge, the former Republican presidential candidate cited irreconcilable differences with his wife of 23 years.

      The move comes as a shock to the family and friends of the couple, who have seven children together and always projected an air of marital bliss. But in an interview outside the courthouse with local television station WPAV, Santorum said that he had no choice.

      “Unfortunately the homosexuals have ruined my marriage,” he explained to reporter Bruce Nolan. “Every year more and more of them get married, and every year the relationship with my wife gets worse.

      “Ever since the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, we’ve been sleeping in separate rooms. It’s like I don’t even know who she is anymore. This is what the gays want: to destroy the institution of marriage. We won’t be the last.”

      Blame everyone but yourself! ~

      So much for unconditional love.

      I always said , Rick had such a beautiful family and there was where his time best served and to forget this nonsense of believing he Presidential material.

      Obsession can ruin the best of man.

      I was raised under men like Rick Sanatorium, ~holding to the believe that they were responsible for everything ~ and ruled by decree. ~ When resistance was offered to such rule, they were quick to wash their hands of their own behavior , perceiving they were forced into action.

      I seen this flawed thinking in him when he ran for office, ~ I still see it today.

      Mrs. Sanatorium must be a heck of a woman to have 7 children and live with such a man for 23 years.

      • Merle Dickey

        He even scares Republicans!!

      • Robert Messmer

        His irreconcilable differences sure come up fast and furious since Section 3 of DOMA was only struck down this year. Since the law came into being in 1996 he had been married seven years before Congress defined it as only being between a man and a woman. Since he didn’t need the law to get married I don’t understand why the demise of the law should cause him so much turmoil.

  • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

    Hey, Cohen The Cretin, I’d like to see Foxx, Ruth & Gehrig come back to life & pick up their wooden weapons of choice & knock some sense into you!!!

  • Libertarian Soldier

    First and at the heart of the matter, this was not the failure or the lack of more, oppressive, insane, intrusive, unconstitutional legislation. It was the failure of the powers, much like the failure of the Administration to act on the Tsarnaevs’ designs on terror, even after receiving tips from the guy that’s embarrassing obama and Kerry on the world stage. Don’t get me wrong; I hate it when the Russians are right and they’re more right than we are, more often than our leadership is, lately, ie: Headline the day after the election, in Russia: “obama reelected by an illiterate society”!

    The Tsarnaevs were dealing in bombs (WMDs), not guns. This nut tells the police he’s hearing voices and someone’s sending vibrations to him to keep him from sleeping and they report it to the Navy. Inaction nor histrionics of the gun grabbers would not have helped a bit. The laws on the books, here, were sufficient. The government is too busy spying on its citizens to do any real police work and follow up on terrorists and real terror threats with the laws on the books.

    This guy should have been stopped at any one place in his list of gun and anger issues over 3 states, all of which they failed to prosecute to take this maniac off the streets. More oppressive laws don’t make up for poor enforcement of the laws and protocols already on the books. That’s the real story.

    As for Cohen, a Self described hater of the first and two most important Amendments and a the most important, biggest part of the Bill of Rights, he’s a grandstanding retard who thinks the country’s as stupid and reactionary as he is. There’s nothing they could have done to stop this absent a time machine that made the people that were concerned, that reported this nut case go over the heads of the Navy where it was reported and demand that he be disqualified from Federal sites and cancelled his access.

    While Cohen wants to jump to the conclusion, as ignorant as he is, that these fine Congressional colleagues are murderers or supporters of it, he has labeled himself, all by himself, Anti-Bill of Rights, Anti-Constitution and un-American, not to mention an a*shole!

    • vicki

      There is a simple solution that does not violate the right of The People to keep and bear arms. Let them. They, the intended victims, will neutralize the threat regardless of the mental state of the threat.

      This is the obvious intent of the founders and put to words in the 2nd Amendment.

      • Libertarian Soldier

        Well said!

        If you want to point the finger past the Navy’s inaction, you’d have to point it at the unconstitutional laws (gun free zones) that prohibit citizens from exercising their Constitutional rights to bear arm against this obvious domestic enemy.

  • Laurence Tribe

    Here’s another national leader blaming the weapon, not the deranged wielder who long displayed the symptoms of irrationality. Senator Cohen didn’t get where he is by being a dolt, therefore there must be a reason why people in government want to disarm the populace. I can tell you those folks are predisposed to positions of power and authority and literally fear an armed citizenry – as well they should. You may recall that George Washington said,”A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined..but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from Any who might attempt to abuse them..which would include their very own government.” Our government, with the aid of the Federal Reserve, has made too many people dependent upon government and therefore subject to its will, which makes them less than free men and women, or less politely, slaves.

    • Merle Dickey

      I agree, I think anyone who gets welfare should have to work for it. That is half the problem , we have half the country that could be working on our bridges or highways etc because they are being paid by the government to work .

      • Mystery

        I concur. I happen to be the mother of a 22 yr old autistic epileptic …. whom has had seizures since she was 1yr 20 days old. Since I worked 40+hrs a week, we had to put her into the welfare loophole of her having her own income of $23 a week child support so she could be covered by medicaid. There is no way in hell I could afford ALL of her medications, tests, hospital care, and doctor visits/travel expenses … 3hr drive away.

        Not possible.

        oh and btw… she’s not considered disabled via social security standards but is via welfare dept. …. go figure:|

        Anyway …. I have worked all my life and have contributed my earnings via taxes and I do not feel I am taking advantage of a system set up for those in this situation. So please don’t think I am trying to defend myself because you and everyone post comments about those abusing the system. Why I am commenting is because I do exactly as you have commented as a solution.

        For 8 years I have volunteered my mornings 6 days a week from 6am until 8am and again at 3 pm until 5 pm for an elderly lady with a working transportation contract with the USPS. I sort the incoming mail for 9 zip codes and travel to 5 Post Offices (40 mile round trip route). No matter the weather. I sit at that dock sometimes up to 2 hrs waiting for its arrival when there’s glitches. Once I have things all sorted out, I load up and head out. Then turn around every afternoon to gather up all the outgoing mail on my route.

        Voluntarily ….

        I do this not only to help out a lady who has given to her community all her life, but to say thank you to my fellow taxpaying countrymen.

        Without their help MY DAUGHTER would not have lived these 22 yrs.

        Okay … so there’s one more reason …. I may not be Postmaster General, but I do get to some of the work ole Ben Franklin, himself, did! :D

        No not all those on assistance can do this …. I mean considering they don’t even have a photo ID to show they are the person they claim to be when voting …. but there are many things they can do around their community at least if they aren’t qualified to work on roads or drive a vehicle.

        Just sayin there are positions throughout our country that could be filled for the hundreds ifn not thousands they are receiving every single month.

        Twenty hrs a week may not even begin to cover their benefits but hey at least ifn they are volunteering their time then they can still remain in the system and not be cut off ifn they apply and get prt time work … cause beilve you me thats whats keepin em from doin just that. (Again, just sayin)

      Yes but coming out of the Bible belt and to have such low regard for the Bible. Good thing for him that he doesn’t have to stand for re-election until 2016.

  • jaybird

    He needs to take his @ss off that committee if it bothers him so much.

  • Thom Clappeur

    Hmmmmm. Steve Cohen. Jew? Interesting that when, under various guises, americans are called into gun toting action In COUNTRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST WHICH ARE A PERCEIVED THREAT TO ISRAEL, and asked to spend their lives and die for the causes, then, its okay with Mr Cohen et. al., to carry guns and die for Their cause. Google Jews in the Obama Administration. You’ll see what I mean. Understand that before both democrats and republicans CRASH THE ECONOMY, they will have to castrate anyone they perceive might disagree with total economic reform. Communism, sponsored by jews, and global collectivism by the same, cannot be impeeded. Any of you with bibles or guns are just that. Impediments. Lenin would be proud.

    • Rahbuy Shibboleth

      You sir, need a rebuttal. So jews are the problem? I suppose you believe that we are some type of international personality, that we are jews first in loyalty and only americans or russians or greeks secondarily? You sound like the type who reads and believes in writings like The Protocols of The Wise Men of Zion? And I’ll bet you believe all the kies about moral destruction, nation destruction, staged wars, destruction of Christianity and more prophesied in thatbook written over a hundred years ago. You, sir, are a paranoid nationalist, seeing boogeymen wwherever you go. Please, sir, weigh carefully your destructive allegations before you level them.
      Your naivete can hurt innocent people. Shalom.

        Jews more than ever need to be careful of what they say! If u criticize the Bible and make enemies of the Christians, like that non thinking Jewish guy, Cohen, then who’s going to save his ass when they come for him!! Remember, oh! it was’nt for me,, that they came, it was for my neighbor, and so on! then they came for HIM, and he’d insulted us Christians, so NO ONE SAVED HIM!! U say” yr naivete can hurt innocent people!” I hope u’re referring to that imbecile Cohen!
        Let me explain something to u! What have these guys got in common? Idi Amin, Stalin, Hitler, Lenin.Pol Pot, Castro, Chavez and on and on!! They all wanted GUN CONTRO, and GOT IT!! Because of people like GUN HATING Steve Cohen, they slaughtered 100,000,000 of their subjects!! So u think what he says about gun control and our Christian Bible is OK!! No it’s not, I’m clinging to My GUN and MY BIBLE!! And then when he needs help he can call on the police! Wait an Hour, and become a Statistic!! No one’s running down God’s chosen people, he insulted us Christians, we never said a word about his Torah! and I’ve never owned a gun yet!but I’m getting one! I’m not scared of burglars, I’m scared of the Obama Administration! Why the hell are they trying to disarm us, and build up the DHS,[inland security!!] for whom he just bought 2,700 ARMORED TROOP CARRIERS, and 1.6 BILLION Hollow point bullets ! Beware of this man, as the GOVERNMENT GROWS, OUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS DIMINISH!!

        “I suppose you believe that we are some type of international personality, that we are jews first in loyalty and only americans or russians or greeks secondarily?”
        Yes, exactly! That is exactly what Jewish culture teaches. First a Jew, then a “whatever”. Jewish loyalty to the “Tribe” is foremost.
        But that in of itself is not uncommon or a bad thing. Many cultures teach that same thing….Muslims, Chineses all have this same characteristic. The negative aspect of this philosophy is when this mono-cultural belief extends to the destruction of the host culture where Muslims, Jews or Chineses may live.
        Any educated historian is well aware of the role Jews have had in the destructive events in Europe in the last century. Jews were active and they were the majority of participants in the downfall of the Czarist rule in Russia. They tried to undermine Germany to make it ripe for Bolshevik takeover, and in Spain during the early to mid 1930’s were the driving force in the Spanish Civil War to convert Spain into another Russian communist puppet. Let’s also not forget their role in the mass slaughter of the Poles or Ukrainians under Stalin’s directives.
        So while most readers on this blog might swallow your line, there are a few of us out here that know histor, and can also offer a “rebuttal” of truth.

    • Moshe McCarthy

      You assume a lot, not every Cohen is a Jew!

      • chocopot

        As the old saying goes, “when you assume, you make an ‘ass’ out of ‘u’ and ‘me.’ ” I have known Cohen’s, Levy’s, and Bernstein’s who were not Jews. Obviously, at some point in the family’s past they were, but no more.

        • Moshe McCarthy

          And not every Jew thinks like Cohen does! Though, most probably do & that is just the way it is, most Jews are Libs.
          I’m Half-Jew & Half-Irish & 100% Conservative/Libertarian

            And I am 100% Ashkenazi and 100% Conservative/Libertarian.

    • Robert Messmer

      Have you bothered checking Mr. Cohen’s voting record in regard to fighting in the Middle East? Is there any way to determine that his vote was brought about because of your assumption that he is a (practicing) Jew or is simply a result of his being an idiot….I’m sorry a Democrat? I do wish y’all would get together and determine rather Obama has an Administration that is overrun with Jews or overrun with Muslims–unless you are saying that they are Jewish Muslims??? Communism sponsored by Jews…excuse me but Communism is an atheistic believe that the State is the Supreme Being.

  • DalasKnight

    Cohen is a member of the American socialist party…..what do you expect from the likes of him!!

  • IsThisAmerica

    Must not have liked my comment as I don’t see it here. Hmm guess I won’t bother with this anymore.

  • Alex

    Eye did not see the MSNBC appearance by Rep. Cohen, but NOWHERE in simple Sam Rolley’s brief does Mr Cohen suggest all supporters of the Second Amendment support mass murder.

    Unless Mr Rolley can dig up that actual quote, it looks like another in the disturbingly grave and increasingly frequent examples of BAD journalism to mark the PLD.

    Wake up, Mr Livingston—your pet is becoming a joke—well, more of a joke than it already was…

    If you are too tired or unwilling to edit what is published under your name, for God’s sake hire a REAL editor!

      “And in the House, on the Judiciary Committee, which I sit on, that’s Murderers’ Row; that’s Foxx, Gehrig and Ruth. They all like their guns,” he said.

      Cohen added, “I think their guns are next there to their Bibles. I’m not sure which they find more important to them.” With regard to Republicans, he concluded, “I think guns trump Bibles on that side of the aisle.”
      So, asslicks, did you miss that part of it, or just choose not to believe it? Seems quite clear what he said to me; If you are a republican or gun enthusiast, you’re part of the “mass murderer crowd”. Funny, ALL of the recent mass killings were done by democrats, or people whose families were democrats. NOT ONE OF THEM WERE “REPUBLICANS”!!! But, if you want to keep drinking the kool-aid and blindly following your false prophet, so be it. Just remember, when the SHTF, don’t expect the “mass murderering republican” gun owners to protect you from the cannibalistic democrats that will be eating their “young”.

    Sounds like the pressure is too much for Representative Cohen (D.-Tenn.). Perhaps the good people of Tennessee should purchase him a one way ticket back to his home state. Does anyone know if he is running in 2014?

  • Alex

    Aaron Alexis—a mentally deranged man with a history of violence and runs-in with the police—the kind of guy Wayne LaPierre is proud to call a member of our “Well-Regulated Militia”—HA!!

    Bad news for all of you gun-addicts—-YOUNG people do see the silly Second Amendment as sacrosanct, and the non-stop tally of gunshot victims works only to solidify their understanding.

    The Second Amendment will either be clarified, rewritten, or just taken down to the river and shot in its pathetic head by the more evolved and civil generation to come….

    • hippybiker

      When pigs fly, Alex. I would entertain the theory that you know nothing of recent world history, otherwise you would not have made such an idiotic statement. It is estimated that in the 20th century over 200 million people were killed by their own governments, after first being deprived of the firearms. This is history, not conjecture. And, let us not mention what our own government utilizing the military did to the Red Man in the 19th century. That is right, they disarmed them and tried to wipe them out for their land. Go back to school, little child.

    • FREE DONUTS

      With age comes wisdom & also let one of these young people get raped or robbed & they’ll change their tune pretty quickly, maybe even want a gun….the incessant blaming of the weapon, takes the responsibility away from the perpetrator!

      We are not europe or other nations that do not have a gun culture…USA has one, it is part of our heritage whether you like it or not!

      • rocketride

        “A conservative is a liberal who has gotten mugged.”

        • FREE DONUTS

          That was the quote I was trying to remember & couldn’t. I think it came from William F. Buckley talking about the snooty Lib Upper East siders in NYC & if they got mugged they would become conservatives real fast!

          • rocketride

            That’s all right, I couldn’t recall where it came from.

        • Sassyladyfl

          A conservative is a gun toting freak… And when the table ks arrive you’ll cry like a baby with your ittybitty guns…

    • Sarah417

      I would like you to know Alex, all mass murderers since Columbine have been registered Democrats or their parents were registered Democrats and the murderer in Colorado worked for the Obama administration. I think we should not allow ANY DEMOCRATS to buy or own guns. Just saying.

        Not to mention all of the post-Lincoln Presidential assassins (successful or wannabe) with the possible exception of the loon who shot Reagan.

        (I don’t think the politics of the day in the 1860’s were enough like today’s to be really comfortable calling John Wilkes Booth a left-winger.)

      I Pray that the LORD lets you Dream of the HELL your building for yourself, until you Wake up to the Truth, GOD Is REAL!, our Constitution Is Fine just as it Stands & COMMUNISM is NEVER RIGHT!!

    • vicki

      Alex accidentally speaks the truth by writing:

      YOUNG people do see the silly Second Amendment as sacrosanct, and the non-stop tally of gunshot victims works only to solidify their understanding.

      They do indeed see the 2nd as sacrosanct and they are smart and realize that when seconds count the police are only minutes away. They know that while they wait they better have the right tools for self defense with them.

      • william huffman

        asslicks, you must be one of those liberals that think the war for independence was started by “radicals”. You realize, of course, that without those “radicals”, we would probably be under the rule of nazi germany don’t you? And, without those “radicals”, you wouldn’t be enjoying the liberties over a million patriots have died to protect. I served my country, and took the oath to defend those liberties you hold in contempt. You never served did you? I would gladly serve again if called. Not to defend “those” rights, but to defend “YOUR” rights, whether you agree with them or not. You don’t get to decide which rights are “earned” or “preferred”, you get to have them ALL, you un-greatful spoiled brat!!!!!!

    • rocketride

      “Sacrosanct” means the opposite of what you obviously think it does. I hope this helps.

      sacrosanct adjective

      1. extremely sacred or inviolable: a sacrosanct chamber in the temple.
      2. not to be entered or trespassed upon: She considered her home office sacrosanct.
      3. above or beyond criticism, change, or interference: a manuscript deemed sacrosanct.

      Origin: 1595–1605; < Latin sacrō sānctus made holy by sacred rite. See sacred, saint

      Related forms: sac·ro·sanc·ti·ty, sac·ro·sanct·ness, noun

      Can be confused: 1. religious, sacrilegious, sacrosanct ; 2. sacred, sacrosanct .
      .
      BTW, The kids around here would beg to differ with the brainwashed little specimens of “Homo sovieticus” your neighbors are evidently “raising”.

  • chocopot

    Another left-wing loon with nothing but contempt for this nation, its Constitution, our citizens, and his own constituents. He should be removed from office and tried for treason.

      Nothing wrong with him that a hollowpoint or three wouldn’t fix. His disdain for his constituents being armed comes from his knowing, subconsciously, that he deserves it.
