EXCERPT: "One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday. McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.
"My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow," McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.
Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.
Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant."
One wonders what would have happened on that NY train if one person had been carrying a concealed weapon and USED it on that nut before he started walking through the train shooting people like they were sheep.
But it is amazing that McCarthy waited as long as she did before trying to take everyone's guns away, the typical liberal knee-jerk reaction. If Jared had mental problems, and it appears that he did, then WHY did not the Pima Co. Sheriff not annotate this in records that could be researched by the FBI in the records search required by federal law, for all legitimate gun purchases.
Almost laughable, is the hoplophobe's mewl about stockpiled ammunition. Dear morons, he used less than one box of ammo in this attack. Duh.
This is how the Left works my friends. They seize upon one thing, and try to force their view on the entire populace. How many American's carry concealed weapons without a problem? Millions. The VA Tech shooter got his weapons from a legitmate gun dealer, who could not check his medical records (mental), due to privacy concerns advocated by the Left. But not to be outdone, the Left spewed their venom about gun control, gun show loopholes, etc, until they found out that fact and then they tucked their little head back into their little turtle shell, and crawled away. (correction of previous post due to Hardnox's sharp eyes)
Even dumber is Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, naturally a Dummycrat. This clown plans to introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official.
Where was he when the Left was screaming murder Bush? So the middle finger, raised against, say, an IRS agent, might be punishable?
What is the Left's problem with the First and Second Amendment? Can someone please answer that? Here we go with what the Left has been drooling over, a Reichstag moment, committed by one of their own.
The Left ALWAYS ignores their own lawlessness.
