Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on December 16, 2012 by Allahpundit

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday she would introduce a bill re-instating the federal ban on assault weapons on the first day of the new Congress in January…

President Obama “is going to have a bill to lead on,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The measure, she said, would aim to take “weapons of war off the streets of our cities.” “It can be done,” she added.

“It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets,” Feinstein said of her proposal.

***

“I think we could be at a tipping point for two reasons, a tipping point where we might actually get something done,” Schumer said on CBS’s “Face the Nation”. “First this was not a single incident, it followed a series of others.”

Schumer noted mass shootings earlier this year in Colorado, where a masked gunman killed 12 in a movie theater, Oregon, where a 22-year-old man killed two with an assault rifle, and Wisconsin, where the estranged husband of a spa employee, killed three people.

“Second, of course, it involved children,” Schumer said of the Newtown killings…

“Reinstate the assault weapons ban, limit the size of clips to maybe no more than 10 bullets per clip, and the third would be to make it harder for mentally unstable people to get guns,” he said.

***

They all say something must be done – the same thing they say after each horrific mass murder. But nothing is ever done. The truth is that Capitol Hill has been paralyzed on gun issues for most of this generation, having last approved major gun laws, including the “Brady bill” and the now-expired assault weapons ban, in 1994. Since then, the needle has moved toward fewer restrictions on guns and ammunition…

But there’s little reason for congressional gun-control advocates to believe that this tragedy will spark a rush to legislate. When Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House from January 2009 to January 2011, they didn’t reauthorize the assault weapons ban or put any other gun laws on the books. Party leaders have been afraid of a potential political backlash against culturally conservative Democrats from swing states, some of whom want to keep the National Rifle Association in their camp – or at least on the sidelines…

[Rep. Carolyn] McCarthy has said she’s willing to embarrass Obama publicly if he doesn’t take up the issue – and that’s what she conveyed to the White House before Friday’s killings.

“I agree this is not the time to talk about [gun control],” she told POLITICO’s Reid Epstein. “It should have been talked about years ago when we started having these mass shootings. It should have been done when Gabby Giffords was shot.”

***

Hollywood has responded to the rampage at a Connecticut elementary school by pulling back on its offerings, and one star says the entertainment industry should take some responsibility for such violence.

Jamie Foxx, one of the industry’s biggest stars, said Saturday as he promoted Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming ultra-violent spaghetti Western-style film about slavery, “Django Unchained,” that actors can’t ignore the fact that movie violence can influence people.

“We cannot turn our back and say that violence in films or anything that we do doesn’t have a sort of influence,” Foxx said in an interview on Saturday. “It does.”

***

In a discussion about America’s mental health system, Crowley and asked Hickenlooper whether the “culture of guns” creates a situation in which gun crimes are inevitable. “There is very little you can do to stop a determined person, do you feel that way,” Crowley asked.

Hickenlooper agreed wholeheartedly, and said we need to have “more people paying attention and trying to detect folks that are unstable” or “on the verge of real trouble.”

He went on to say our violent culture, including the “depiction of assault weapons again and again” in video games and the media contributes to gun crimes. The governor also suggested that the criminals might, in their minds, “become part of the video games” when they carry out these tragic crimes.

***

I live with a son who is mentally ill. I love my son. But he terrifies me…

I am sharing this story because I am Adam Lanza’s mother. I am Dylan Klebold’s and Eric Harris’s mother. I am Jason Holmes’s mother. I am Jared Loughner’s mother. I am Seung-Hui Cho’s mother. And these boys—and their mothers—need help. In the wake of another horrific national tragedy, it’s easy to talk about guns. But it’s time to talk about mental illness

I don’t believe my son belongs in jail. The chaotic environment exacerbates Michael’s sensitivity to sensory stimuli and doesn’t deal with the underlying pathology. But it seems like the United States is using prison as the solution of choice for mentally ill people. According to Human Rights Watch, the number of mentally ill inmates in U.S. prisons quadrupled from 2000 to 2006, and it continues to rise—in fact, the rate of inmate mental illness is five times greater (56 percent) than in the non-incarcerated population.

No one wants to send a 13-year old genius who loves Harry Potter and his snuggle animal collection to jail. But our society, with its stigma on mental illness and its broken healthcare system, does not provide us with other options. Then another tortured soul shoots up a fast food restaurant. A mall. A kindergarten classroom. And we wring our hands and say, “Something must be done.”

***

Brooks said that, while he greatly admires Mayor Bloomberg, he is unsure that a big city mayor is the most effective spokesperson for the cause of gun control.

“One of the problems with this debate; it’s become a values war. It’s perceived as urban versus rural. And, frankly, it’s perceived as an attack on the lifestyle of rural people by urban people. And, I admire Mayor Bloomberg enormously – there’s probably no politician I agree with more – but it’s counterproductive to have him as the spokesperson for the gun law movement. There has to be more respect and more people, frankly, from rural and red America who are participants in this.”

***

“I’m not sure so — and I’m sure I’ll get nailed for this — I wouldn’t want one person in a school armed, ready for this kind of thing,” Bennett said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It has to be someone who is trained, it has to be someone who is responsible,” he said. “But my God, if you can prevent this kind of thing.”

***

“It’s time for the president, I think, to stand up and lead and tell this country what we should do.”

***

I wish to God (the principal) had had an M4 in her office, locked up, so when she heard gunfire she pulls it out … and takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids,” the Republican from Texas said on “Fox News Sunday.”…

“Every mass killing of more than three people in recent history has been in a place where guns were prohibited, except for one,” he said, arguing for looser gun laws so more people can be armed for self-protection. “They know no one will be armed.”

The strikes by the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) which have continued in Pakistan’s tribal areas since 2004 have intensified during the Obama era. In one of the major drone attacks more than 40 civilians and policemen were killed on March 18, 2011 in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan. In the past few months, these unmanned aircraft killed more than 100 people in North Waziristan

Loughner, Cho, Holmes, Kleibold, Harris, Lanza and on and on.

The same thing was said after each went on his rampage and, no, I am not referring to the predictable chorus of Absolute Shalls bewailing the fact that Americans have a right to bear arms. No, I am referring to the fact that, after each one, the people that knew them said, “I feel bad for the victims, but I’m not surprised. The dude was a mental case. Always has been.”


Why Do The Rights Of The Mentally Ill To Live Their “Fiercely, Independent Lifestyle Choices” Trump The Rights of Americans To “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”?

Capp on December 16, 2012 at 8:22 PM

They just won’t give up. Every time there is a tragedy, there they are, seeking to ban guns despite the fact that these attacks have all occurred in “gun-free” zones. Even the Tucson shooting can be considered such since it was a democrat gathering and it was a pretty sure bet none of the libs attending would have been carrying.

Never a mention of people successfully defending themselves, their families or the public with firearms. The Portland story is being completely ignored.

Had someone in bible class this morning make the comment about how the MSM is blamed for things, she is a reporter for the Tucson paper. She made the statement about needed a “conversation on guns” — That would be great if there were an honest conversation, but the MSM is far from holding an honest conversation on guns. To the MSM, “a conversation on guns” means “let’s push through gun control legislation while we can prey on peoples’ emotions”.

then you can tell the story anyway you want … crisis and waste ya know…

conservative tarheel on December 16, 2012 at 8:24 PM

From Ann Althouse:

“Curiously, during the period before deinstitutionalization, the mentally ill seem to have been less likely to be arrested for serious crimes than the general population.”

“Studies in New York and Connecticut from the 1920s through the 1940s showed a much lower arrest rate for the mentally ill. In an era when involuntary commitment was relatively easy, those who were considered a danger to themselves or others would be hospitalized at the first signs of serious mental illness. The connection between insanity and crime was apparent, and the society took a precautionary approach. Mentally ill persons who were not hospitalized were those not considered a danger to others. This changed as deinstitutionalization took effect.”

From “Madness, Deinstitutionalization & Murder,” by Clayton Cramer.

Common sense is like deodorant. Those, who need it most, are the least likely to use it.

I can’t stand Bloomberg.

Anyway, for all the nonsense that there is no link between Aspberger’s and violence, all you need to do is google aspberger’s and “rage” or “explosive behavior”. Or you can read that blog by that mother of the explosive Aspberger’s boy to know the truth.

We need laws that keep these people safe and others safe from them. Conn just refused a law that would have made it possible to get mandatory psychiatric treatment. The ACLU stopped it. Ban the ACLU

Liberals never solve a thing. All they do is posture, to be recognized and get free advertising through a complicit media.

Yeah, right.

How about the slimeball rap industry? After all, “gangsta rap” is all about mayhem. How about the dirtballs in government and their supporters who fete the despicable arab/muslim terrorists who love to murder children? Instead of calling the demented, depraved islamic culture that produces those homicidal maniacs what they are, the leftists love to treat these terrorists as “freedom fighters” and reward them with whole states from which to launch their terror (and they would love to kill every child in the America and the West), and then jump ugly on us sane people for calling them all what they are. Of course, in the islamic world, honor killing of ones daughter is normal – dad and the borthers calmly strangle their sibling to death because the wrong boy looked at her, today, and then what’s left of the sick demented family sits down to a nice dinner … These are the people that American leftists and the Indonesian support and cheer for. And then they wonder why some American kids with more than a few screws loose might emulate that barbaric behavior?

And Jamie Foxx can just go straight to hell. He’s a total POS. I would never watch another thing he’s in. He sucks. He doesn’t deserve to live in a civilized society.

He won’t dare say a word about Hollywood or gangsta rap.

If Preezy had any class…

… he would have asked the audience to hold their applause in lieu of the victim”s families.

But no, we can’t have THAT…

whatever happened with the “second shooter” reports?

equanimous on December 16, 2012 at 8:56 PM

and one star says the entertainment industry should take some responsibility for such violence.

They won’t regulate themselves. But you can bet they’ll go after Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner cartoons.

Kinda wanted to see the football game but the jug eared rat bas/tard took it over and I had to turn it off. Three hundred dead mexicans and 2 law enforcement guys on both sides of the border and not a word from the rat eared ass/hat, 4 dead in benghazi and 30+ injured without support or help and not a word BUT give the marxist community organizer a chance to attach the 2nd Amendment and to takes over a network. We are doomed.

There was applause???

Only in America

Electrongod on December 16, 2012 at 8:59 PM

left/libs are disgusting people. The ‘mental health’ people are squealing that they need more Money…we’ve been cut back…the Gun Control fanatics are launching their pre-written bills, the leftist media is doing what they do best.

Dr. K said it best. Three constitutional amendments are involved. 1st, the business about the lunatics in H.wood, 2nd, the gun thing and the 5th, civil commitment and due process stuff

a serious discussion would be nice to have…but sadly we have a lunatic political class that just ‘wants something done’

Preezy cares so much for the children of this nation…

… he won’t be satisfied until he sattles them with a trillion dollars of debt a piece.

Dear Leader came back out on the stage to acknowledge the muted applause from the audience…

That manipulative coward Obama just gave a speech that was in its essence, ‘do it for the children’. The basest most ugly gun control argument of all. The entire speech was a staircase of emmotion-manipulating references building to a demand for action ‘to keep our children safe’ and to do so on a national scale. And about using every power of his office to bring it about.
The entire thing was groundwork for gun control.

I was live-blogging it here
http://www.grouchyconservativepundits.org/index.php?topic=53542.0

I’m sure his speech is already on whitehouse.gov. Read it with an ear for gun control and you’ll see the manipuations in almost every phrase. A gramscian work of art.

Common sense is like deodorant. Those, who need it most, are the least likely to use it.

If children can survive beyond the laws that Obama helped passed…

He loves them..

Electrongod on December 16, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Oh sure Hollywood regulates itself. Big time. The MPAA could tomorrow declare all realistic assault weapon violence portrayals will garner an R-rating, which would seriously hamper a movie’s financial prospects. They already do it with violence in PG-13. Victims of violence have to be wearing masks or appear non-human, have a cartoonish or supernatural quality.

John the Libertarian on December 16, 2012 at 9:02 PM

I have a feeling in the coming year when Preezy starts to after our guns…

… if he runs into any trouble, he will return to Newtown, and dig up the dead.

I HAVE Asperger’s.
You’re so full of sh*t that it’s coming out of your ears.
my abusive father kept a loaded pistol in his nighstand drawer when I was growing up. I knew it was there.
He died of Crohn’s diesaese when I was in my early 30′s. I was raised around guns and taught gun safety at a young age. I’m still pro-second amendment.
Asperger’s/autism does NOT TURN PEOPLE INTO KILLERS!
Some people are just evil.
