CT’s Murphy says Congress ready for AWB

| January 13, 2013

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy predicted to CNN that Congress is ready to pass the so-called Assault Weapon Ban says the Washington Times. He claims that people like West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, who was previously opposed to the ban, are ready to cross over to the fascist gun grabbers’ side. Manchin, who has been squishy on guns since his reelection last November, says otherwise;

… Mr. Manchin on Sunday disagreed with Mr. Murphy’s assessment, saying later on “State of the Union” that a stand-alone ban on assault weapons “will not, in the political reality that we have today, go anywhere … it has to be comprehensive approach.”

Yeah, I don’t know what that means either – it sounds just like the form letter I got from him when I wrote to warn him that he’d have one more irritated constituent if he went anywhere near the Scary-Looking Weapon Ban. When I was in a local gun shop here in Mineral County last week, Manchin was the target of lots of comments. None of them positive.

The NRA predicts that the Weapon Ban won’t happen according to Reuters;

National Rifle Association President David Keene signaled little appetite for compromise as the White House mulls action on gun violence after the December 14 massacre of 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school.


“The likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this Congress,” Keene said.

Meanwhile, Peirs Morgan who has been busy showing his complete ignorance on the subject of gun control this weekend, claims that we don’t need our guns to protect us from a tyrannical government because the Obama Administration would just nuke us anyway says The Daily Caller;

America has over 5000 nuclear warheads. Quite hard to defend against a ‘tyrannical U.S. government’ with that kind of firepower. #GetReal

When he’s not busy making specious arguments, he’s making up his own facts and weapon calibers arguing with Dana Loesch on Twitter, according to Twitchy.

Morgan represents the reasons this ban won’t work…the “other side” doesn’t even understand the issue or even the simplest aspects of the technology involved and they look like absolute clowns to the rest of the country.

  1. Candidly, the absurd nature of the arguments FOR are simply breathtaking.

    I dunno how this will shake out, mind you, but if ANY sort of ban passes ANY sort of legislative process we are in trouble.

    The word is “bellwether”.

    I got a squishy reply from Sen Hagen (Dim-NC) also. She’s been good on 2nd Amend and she’s running in 14 so she’s probably playing both sides while she can. Write her if you live in NC.

  3. DaveO says:

    So Manchin agrees with the Assault Weapons Ban, but he wants “Comprehensive” which is DC for CYA-with-the-voters-who-will-forget-tomorrow.

    Glad Manchin is a man of character.

    SJ…Sen. Shaheen in NH is also up in 2014. Her silence on this issue, when she can normally be counted on to have an opinion on EVERYTHING, is certainly telling.

  5. TacticalTrunkMonkey says:

    I emailed my Congress Critter from Arkansas (Boozman) and got no reply…

  6. ALERT to fellow Georgians Dist#11 Rep Phil Gingrey is being limp wristed about this subject also. Sorry no link.

    Civil disobedience will make the stakes go higher.
    Once the gov starts to collect weapons someone will do a Waco or Ruby Ridge and then it will begin.
    What happens when they ban an item that no one gives up or turns in without coercion?
    Does Obama do a cash for clunkers buy back of the banned items or is it just outright theft under duress.

  8. obsidian says:

    So Obama will nuke gun owners, how does that feel to the liberals who live inside the lethal radius of the strike, radiation and heat plus blast does not make exceptions for liberals and democrats. Nor does fallout distinguish between Canada or Europe who may not want our vaporized cities and guns drifting down on their nations.
    Obama in Morgans own words is a tyrannical, dictator who will atom bomb his own people and country to stop any rebellion.
    These folks will not for any reason close the border with Mexico and that my friends will be the major smuggling route for guns, unable to stop human traffics or drugs these clowns believe they will have better luck with guns?

  9. NHSparky says:

    Oh, don’t use that argument with him, obsidian. Liberals don’t like when their own words or ideas are used against them to show what a bunch of drooling morons they are.
