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.
