In Wake of Tucson Shooting, Lefturd Congresswoman to Introduce Legislation Banning High Capacity Ammo Clips

Yup, the Lefturds have oh-so predictably blamed the Tea Party and Sarah Palin for the shootings which were pulled off by one of their own fellow communists, begun working on ways to limit the People’s right to meet, criticize, and petition their congresscritters, and now they are busy crafting legislation to target your right to bear arms.  True to their nature, they never let a crisis go to waste—especially when they are the ones responsible for creating the crisis:

Carolyn McCarthy readies gun control bill
By SHIRA TOEPLITZ | Politico

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 targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.

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.

McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.

Hahahaha!  Good luck with that one, Carolyn! The new House Speaker, Boehner, has an “A” rating from the NRA.  I highly doubt he will lift a finger to help you with your gun-grabbing, Lefturd agenda.  That 2010 election cycle has already started paying big dividends for us Conservatives!  Woohoo!

McCarthy’s spokesman confirmed the legislation will target the high-capacity ammunition clips the Arizona gunman allegedly used in the shooting, but neither he or the congresswoman offered any further details.

    WHEN THE “LAW” CANNOT KEEP FIREARMS OUT OF THE HANDS OF MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE….THE TENDENCY IS TO “DENY SANE CITIZENS THEIR RIGHT TO “SELF-PROTECTION”….BECAUSE A FEW VIOLATE THE LAW (FOR WHATEVER REASON)…..AND ALL “HOPE” THAT THIS WILL ENSURE “PROTECTION”…..OF THE PEOPLE.

    Outlaw congress! These haters have created the circumstances that exist today! They have made the USA into a place that I no longer want to live in! They have instilled hatred into every minority group! They have enabled jihadists to stage mumbai style attacks and now they want to leave us as naked prey! Out law congress before they get more Americans killed. Oh, and if you are serving these people in any capacity you are the problem. I can no longer go along with the, we are just doing our best serving the country, bullshit!

    People were already angry and look what they have done over the weekend. They have increased the anger 100 fold. They have declared civil war, we need to frog march these rats into prison and then put them among the general population.

    They are calling for a (national) moment of silence. I will not engage in prayer, moments of silence, candle holding ceremonies, etc, with the devil.

      I couldn’t bring myself to honor that particular moment of silence either. BHO is not even my president, much less my prayer leader!

      In defiance, I put on a CD of Hebrew music and played the most raucus song on it REALLY LOUD. I sure do wish I understood Hebrew better.

        Although I would never shoot a politician, I strongly doubt that I would risk a fingernail to protect one. I am old enough to remember when Americans honored and respected them as faithful servants of the people. Much like the glory of Rome, those days are long gone.

      • tgusa Says:

        Just as I thought, the so called memorial was nothing more than a pagan ritual. There were no men of God there leading the remembrance, they did have Chief running dog there to tell us about his struggle in America though. If he thinks that’s hard he should try being an American in Mexico. I really don’t like these people, they are really really offensive, I’m offended.

    The prisions in the US are full of convicted criminals who have used guns comitting various and violent crimes and I doubt the convicts were concerned with Firearm registration or complying with any rule, law, or ordaniance.

    • tgusa Says:

      They all miss the main point, bolt action, six shooter, large capacity magazine, don’t matter. If this had been a Tea Party event, while no one may have been able to prevent the Congresswomans point blank head shot, the perp would have been gunned down before he could have opened up on anyone else. No other weapons in the area so Tom Dick and Harry had to tackle him, with assistance from aunt Shirley. This is one heckuva way to run a country.

    Obama is racing to the scene, he is calling this a national tragedy, I don’t agree. Was it a national tragedy when Congressman Ryan was murdered by followers of Jim Jones? No. Was it a national tragedy when Reagan was shot? Not according to the media. This is a tragedy but it is in Arizona and primarily it was a predictable result of leftist policies. They embrace the nuts to help their cause, they have to, there are not enough sane ones to make any difference. Leftists/progressives, have sewn the wind with hate and now it is time to reap a hateful and spiteful whirlwind. I will not engage in their pagan ceremonies and neither should any Christians.

      It cuts down on the spam, death threats and DOA attacks, I blame society.


    • It wasn’t me. The automatic SPAM filter sometimes goes haywire or something and blindly triggers on some nebulous keyword in the comments—at least that’s what I think is going on. Just ask TGUSA and Islams Not For Me. They’re two of our most prolific commentators here and still wind up in the “Awaiting Moderation” SPAM queue every couple of days for God-only-knows-what; I’m forever having to pull their comments out of there.

      Sure wish WordPress would give me the ability to edit the trigger words in the automatic SPAM filter. It sure would make my life easier and would keep our readers from freaking out over it so much…
      🙂

      Cheers

        Yup some of my comments wind up in the wrong ‘bin’ I guess wordpress doesnt like my comments much…

    Ah — glad to hear it’s some kind of techie-sweep thing, which I know absolutely nothing about. I don’t even own a cell phone. I am becoming my parents — who still refuse to use a microwave oven even after 20 years of everybody else doing it.

    Think we’ll even be around for 20 more years with these bozo’s in office?
