Quotes of the day

posted at 10:53 pm on July 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

The head of the House Democratic Caucus said Tuesday that Congress should “absolutely” ban the sale of assault weapons in the wake of last week’s fatal shooting rampage in Colorado.

Many Democratic leaders have been wary of making a full-throated push for such a ban since House Democrats were swept from the majority in 1994 – a bruising loss some observers have linked to the Democrats’ gun reforms earlier that year.

But Rep. John Larson (Conn.) said Tuesday that Congress shouldn’t shy away from the issue simply because it’s tough politically.

***

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday that he does not plan any action on gun control despite calls to pass an assault weapons ban and other measures…

“You guys, I am not going to be here with each of you debating gun control,” he said. “I’ve told you my feeling on that.”

Reid, who was thought to be in the running for an NRA endorsement during his last election, disagrees with many liberals in his party on gun regulation.

***

Even Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., — who was one of the biggest cheerleaders for the assault weapons ban when it passed the House in 1994 – suggested there is no political will for new gun laws or re-instating the assault weapons ban. Under the weapons ban, which lapsed in 2004. Under the ban, it would have been illegal for James Holmes to purchase the deadliest of the weapons he used: the AR-15 assault rifle…

House Democrats including Reps. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Carolyn McCarthy of New York, both long-time gun control advocates, point to the shooting in Colorado and other mass shootings as proof that the country’s gun laws are insufficient. Monday Blumenauer took to the floor to accuse the National Rifle Association of political bullying. He pointed to the shooting as a renewed opportunity “to deal with an epidemic of gun violence” in the United States.

“The NRA argues that all we need is for existing gun laws to be enforced while they systematically set about to dismantle which laws we have,” Blumenaue said. “I continue to feel that there’s no reason to permit armor-piercing, cop-killer bullets to be sold like Tic-tac’s, that automatic weapons should be available over the counter with 100-bullet magazines like killer in Colorado had, that facilitate such sprees.”

***

[G]un control advocates tell another story as well. The president has shied away from the gun debate, they said, out of political expedience. The Obama who spoke at that church rally isn’t the same politician who chose soft-touch responses to the mass shootings in Tucson, Ariz., and, most recently, in Aurora, Colo.

“There is no question he’s softened on the issue,” said Ed Rendell, the former Pennsylvania governor who focused on the unwillingness of Democrats to take on the gun lobby in his new book, “A Nation of Wusses.” “But in fairness to the president, you don’t see many other Democrats rushing to the floor saying we need to have legislation.”…

“He has been supportive of national policy until he took office,” said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “I don’t know how much it is the influence of the gun lobby directly, as it is the kind of political calculus. He had an agenda and this was not at the top of his agenda. He needed to create coalitions of support for things like health care and he didn’t want to risk fragmenting that support in any way.”

But as national incidents of gun violence flared with no major responses, groans have grown louder.

***

On his visit to Aurora, Barack Obama spoke a few half-hearted words—he might have wished he could venture more—on the topic. His rival, Mitt Romney, continued simply to pander to the rich coffers of the National Rifle Association. In Washington, you can be assured that hardly anyone will do more, and not simply because members of Congress “don’t have the spine to act,” the verdict of Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, whose husband was murdered and son was wounded in a gun attack on a commuter train 17 years ago. The stark reality is that the half-century battle for gun control has been lost politically—again, and again, now perhaps permanently. And that outcome seems impervious to any new outrage perpetrated in the increasingly grim randomness of America as a recurring, movable shooting gallery…

Aboard Air Force One, on a journey to console the victims and their families in Colorado, Obama’s press secretary said the president’s focus was on enforcing “existing law.” And you can’t expect him to launch a futile demand for tougher gun laws that would never pass the House or Senate. Nor should he pursue a course of faux courage that would represent a heedless disregard for everything else at stake in 2012—and that would sacrifice his chances in swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, thereby shattering the hope for a progressive presidency empowering the forces of reaction to impose their will across the board.

The psychic satisfaction of being pure on gun control is not worth losing the election—and letting Romney further pack a Supreme Court that has already ruled five to four that the Constitution confers an individual right to own firearms despite state and local gun laws. If this happened, things would only get worse.

***

These days, people are trying to use the Aurora killings as a pretext to criticize America’s gun culture or to call for stricter gun control laws. (This doesn’t happen after European or Asian spree killings.) Personally, I’ve supported tighter gun control laws. But it’s not clear that those laws improve public safety. Researchers reviewing the gun control literature for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for example, were unable to show the laws are effective.

And gun control laws are probably even less germane in these cases. Rampage killers tend to be meticulous planners. If they can’t find an easy way to get a new gun, they’ll surely find a way to get one of the 200 million guns that already exist in this country. Or they’ll use a bomb or find another way.

Looking at guns, looking at video games — that’s starting from the wrong perspective. People who commit spree killings are usually suffering from severe mental disorders. The response, and the way to prevent future episodes, has to start with psychiatry, too.

After all, the NRA is responsible for ALL the mass shootings. Does it get the credit for the decreasing rate of violent crime DESPITE obozo’s economy????

Obama’s campaign strategy is inadequate to maintain him in a serious action such as Mitt Romney and the Tea Party will put to him. He has corruption in the coop, hate on the hoof, taqiyya on the tongue and bats in the belfry — that’s his campaign strategy. He can probably maintain himself in the type of fighting Mitt Romney and the Tea Party will give him in Mexifornia and a few states on the North East front. After that it will make no difference how many thousands of dead he has voting for him early and often, and if Americans want America and the Presidency back, Mitt Romney and the Tea Party will give it to them.

Kottke is one of my all time faves. I was at one of his shows back in the ’70s, and he played most of the 6 and 12 String Guitar album, including VMG. About half way through he stopped dead; you could have heard a pin drop in the hall. He said, “Stopping in the middle of a song like this is like waking up in the middle of a wet dream and trying to go back to sleep and into the dream.”

Then he started playing again, right where he left off. The place went nuts. Great show.

In what certainly seems like four score and seven years ago, American voters, deceived by a man of a true nature most foul and his media propaganda ministers, brought forth, upon this Nation, a profoundly warped man, conceived who knows where for certain, who is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created weak and subservient to his every insane will and whim.

Now we are engaged in a great battle, testing whether this nation, or any nation so burdened, and so assaulted, can long endure. We are met here on a great internet battlefield, with compatriots in the Tea Party Freedom Movement rallies, compatriots on the radio waves and Spartan Warriors in the Great State of Arizona, of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of our lives in honor of our forefathers who dedicated their lives that this nation might live vigorous and free.
It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

It is for us, the living, to be dedicated to the restoration of freedom, liberty, rule of law, progress and sanity which our Founders so nobly brought about. It is for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they so long ago gave the full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that our Founding Fathers shall not have labored in vain; that this nation shall have a rebirth of freedom and responsibility; and that this government will once again be of the people, by the people, for the people, and that we will not allow abominations like Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their gang of quislings to cause it, and it’s shinning light, to perish from the Earth.

Oh, don’t get me started on Moore. I’ve often wondered why so many celebs are not content to just have their political positions. No, they must share them with the world. My theory is that 1) the fine arts atmosphere is just liberal and often activist by nature (I used to be in it), 2) At the end of the day, I believe many of the actors are unfulfilled; they feel empty. Many use a “cause” to try and fill that void. It makes them feel as though they really matter. 3) And some are just pompous a$$holes that think they know better than anyone else.

Hypocrites abound. Try telling an A-list actor that he makes too much money, so from now on, he will earn the same fee per movie that his unknown co-stars make.

Sorry. Rant off.

Liberals suffer from an obsession with pretending they are great generals, political scientists, law enforcement geniuses, and greatly admired. And only they should have guns. To shoot(liberals never kill) all those that disagree.

Shortly he will be suing fork manufacturers for making his ass fat.

Hey Joe

I’ve always liked that song.

This thread has become a smorgasbord of tunes! COOL!

thatsafactjack on July 25, 2012 at 2:23 AM

I’m glad you’re good with smorgasbord, because I can never stay with one theme for too long. LOL. I haven’t event looked for one that matches the gun theme.

Grace! That was fantastic! Very astute assessment. Did you see the open letter that John Hurt released today directed at Warner brothers, Sean Penn, and Hollywood in general? He let them have it for that violence that created that monster, Holmes. TOO COOL.

Ummmm, ok. I love the Allman Brothers, and that is a great tune. But I have no recollection what I may have done here in the wee hours to obligate you, or for that matter what I may have done period. #BecauseWhiskey

I haven’t been around all that much either and I don’t even know why.

Are you still on your trip, or have you returned home?

I’ve always wondered why they have no hesitation insulting what has to be at least 50% of their possible viewing/listening/purchasing audience. And why do they think they are authorities on anything other than “entertaining”?

Another one I haven’t heard in a long time. Nice.

I just hope & pray I’m not drowning my sorrow in whiskey & coke on the morning of 11/7/2012

Throw the bums out

No, I’ll be here probably until the first of October. A couple of nights the puppies wanted to be in my lap. It’s hard to type like that.

Cindy Munford on July 25, 2012 at 2:36 AM

A very sad gun song.

Yes, I see my spelling & grammar errors. It’s late, so I just don’t care to correct them. :)

4Grace on July 25, 2012 at 2:39 AM
