Joe Morrissey; Get your booger hook off of the bang switch

| January 18, 2013 | 106 Comments

Booger hook on the bang switch

Another fine example of the people who want to limit our choice of what we spend our money on. In the Virginia House of Delegates, Joe Morrissey held up an AK-47-style weapon and explained why he thought we weren’t responsible enough to own that type of weapon…his finger clearly on the trigger.

When his fellow delegates and the media criticized him for his irresponsible behavior, he assured everyone that the weapon wasn’t loaded. But responsible gun owners, not Morrissey, know that all guns are always loaded, or at least that’s how we treat the weapons. From local news;

“Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did it say that someone can carry an AK-47 and walk down the middle of the street with it,” Morrissey said.

The delegate is introducing legislation that would ban the sale, transfer, import or barter of assault rifles and magazines holding 20 or more rounds. Morrissey says his proposal would prohibit gun enthusiasts from buying or selling assault weapons at Gun Shows like one at the Show Place.

I wonder if his proposal would bar him from owning any weapon, because clearly he doesn’t know what he’s doing. By the way, his bill that would have prohibited drivers from smoking in their car failed yesterday.

Thanks to ROS for the picture.

    He is a liar. Ohio is an open carry state (hand and long guns) so is Michigan and many other states.
    Has to be a demorat.

  2. Old Trooper says:

    “Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did it say that someone can carry an AK-47 and walk down the middle of the street with it,” Morrissey said.

    Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that you can perform a deliberate abortion, either. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that you can take my money by threat of imprisonment and give it to someone else. Fuckstick. Also, it does say I can walk down the middle of the street with a WASR-10 (not AK-47, jackwagon) in that little passage “right to keep and BEAR arms shall not be infringed”. Also, I can most definitely walk down the middle of the street carrying an AR-15, because my carry permit allows me to do so, legally, if I so choose.

    Typical dumbass leftist; doesn’t know shit about firearms, but thinks that even though he’s displaying his ignorance for everyone to see, that he somehow has the gravitas to lecture everyone else.

  3. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    I wish these 4ssholes would stick to writing laws that will actually benefit the nation or their state, like balancing the f#cking budgets and controlling spending. Most folks will live better and enjoy life more with the ability to find work because all the funding in the country wouldn’t be tied up in financing government spending.

    We don’t need you to tell us how to live we need you to what we are paying you for and that is controlling spending to what you receive in revenue and dismantling sh1t we don’t need, don’t want, and didn’t ask for…

  4. UpNorth says:

    I wonder when the dems will introduce legislation, somewhere, telling everyone when they can breathe, and how much they can breathe. Wait, I’m sure that’s covered in the Obamacare dictat.
    “We’ve got to do something, says Morrisey. Even though it’s wrong? Of course, just another dem, running around with his panties wadded and his dress pulled up over his face, screaming a variation of “the sky is falling”.

  5. RandomNCO says:

    If the Constitution did say something about walking down the street with an AK-47…I’d wonder what James Madison did with his time machine after he got back.

  6. OWB says:

    The Constitution also does not say that you can drive a car down the middle of the street either, so cars should be banned, right?

  7. Twist says:

    “Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did it say that someone can carry an AK-47 and walk down the middle of the street with it,”

    Nowhere in the Constitution does it say seperation of church and state, but you libs run with that one to extreme measures.

  8. Eagle Keeper says:

    One small quibble with your choice of title, John:

    I doubt that anyone — even THIS wanker — picks his nose with his thumb! ;-)

  9. ron says:

    finger on the trigger—magazine in place—NITWIT!!! stupid should hurt.

  10. Mike says:

    I’d really like to see these fascist politicians removed from office. They have no idea what they’re talking about.

  11. The Dead Man says:

    #5 He signed a non-disclosure statement with Doc Brown to protect him from skynet.

    I’m starting to think that along with basic logic tests for voting, we should require politicians to read at least some of the founding fathers’ papers.

  12. Eagle Keeper says:

    1. Finger on trigger
    2. Mag inserted
    3. Action closed

    Would some Boy Scout please give this stuffed suit a good a$$ whuppin’?

  13. USMCE8Ret says:

    What Morrissey fails to understand is that the Constitution speaks to limitations of what the government CANNOT do, and speaks more to what rights people CAN do. It was written that way for a reason (but I’m preaching to the choir here.)

    I think he missed that class.

  14. NHSparky says:

    Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did it say that someone can carry an AK-47 and walk down the middle of the street with it.

    Actually, nowhere in the Constitution did I say I can’t, fucknuts. As a matter of fact, that whole “shall not be infringed” part of the Second Amendment pretty much says as long as I’m not committing a crime with said weapon, I can carry pretty much any fucking boomstick I fucking want.

  15. Eagle Keeper says:

    USMCE8Ret,

    Him AND all the fine Virginians who voted for his scurvy butt.

  16. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    He misses the mark entirely. What a jerk. He needs a Civics lesson, preferably one that includes a reading of the Constitution for comprehension. I’m now wondering whether this clown isn’t the “Joe” who frequently displays his ignorance here at TAH.

  17. JP says:

    Yesterday another VA delegate gave a great speech on 2A.

  18. PintoNag says:

    Aren’t there laws about taking weapons into state and federal buildings? How did he get past the metal detectors and guards with that rifle??

  19. PintoNag says:

    And that weapon should have been taken away from him, cleared, and then used to butt-stroke that moron.

  20. Hondo says:

    2/17 Air Cav: don’t think so. Joe posts from a town in Colorado. That’s theoretically possible to do from another physical location if you (a) know what you’re doing and (b) have the right setup and support. But I don’t think this clown qualifies for (a). He strikes me as not having the common sense to (as they’d say in parts of Texas) pour piss out of a boot.

    - break –

    VOV: I dont think “these assholes” will be passing laws for the country’s benefit any time soon, amigo. That’s the VA legislature, not the US Congress. (smile)

  21. Green Thumb says:

    It is a mad dash for glory but the inexperienced and uninitiated.

    Pathetic.

  22. rb325th says:

    Obviously the guy would not even know which end of the rifle to point down range… That aside his, idiotic comment that the 2nd Amendment would not allow for a person to walk down the street with an AK-47 is just pathetic bovine fecal matter.. another in the line of the 2nd Amendment is outdated and no one ever expected weapons to evolve….
    The second amendment makes no mention of weapon type, though it can easily be assumed to mean military style, or weapons capable of meeting military requirements to fulfill ones obligation as a member of the militia.

  23. ron says:

    look out, guys—he’s got an assault magazine!

  24. Rock8 says:

    He is a douche bag attorney, on top of being a good politician. Read how he treated his clients, which resulted in his disbarment in 2003.

  25. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @18. Yup, but there is privilege that protects him in relation to his legislative speechifying and duties. Also, regarding the metal detectors, these guys walk around them. Often, so too do their aides. It’s the rabble (that would be us) those metal detectors are in place for.

  26. Joe says:

    You’re helping make the case for the other side. There are millions of Joe Morrisey’s out there – you want them all to run out and buy AR-15′s? Is that your idea of a safe society. Sheesh.

  27. NHSparky says:

    Really? We’re helping make YOUR case, Joe?

    Seems to me that your boy there is helping make OUR case by demonstrating the gun-grabbers haven’t the first fucking clue of gun safety, etc., or even what they’re fucking holding.

    There are millions of Joe Morrisey’s out there, and they’re all idiots when it comes to guns, so pardon me if I don’t consider his opinion on them very credible, thanks all the same.

  28. cannoncocker says:

    I see once again there is a complete lack of understanding here. Joe, I will make this as clear as I can. NOBODY has EVER suggested that we go out of our way to intentionally arm EVERY SINGLE person out there. This is the kind of idiocy that you are made of. We have never said that, nor suggested that, nor insinuated that.

    What we DO WANT, is to be left the hell alone by you and your kind, who would dictate to us what we can and cannot have, even if we have done nothing wrong. If a crime is committed, prosecute. If a crime is not committed, what the hell do you care? Oh yeah, because you like to play dictator and tell other people how to live their lives. Got it.

  29. Eggs says:

    The only people this moron will impress will be other morons, so he has that going for him.

  30. Joe says:

    Yeah, just call me “Il Duce”.

  31. Ex-PH2 says:

    I’ve got news for you, Joey-boy. There is NO SUCH THING as a safe society anywhere on this planet.

    If there were, then things like kidnaping children right off the street in broad daylight wouldn’t happen.

    If there were, then pickpockets and purse snatchers wouldn’t exist.

    If there were, then people wouldn’t be holding up banks.

    If there were, then waiting for the bus or the train at 8AM wouldn’t leave you open to assault by crazy people, or get you thrown onto the subway tracks.

    I keep counting up the levels stupid remarks that you make. You just get dumber and dumber every time you hit the keyboard. You are as thick as a plank and you get thicker with every ignorant comment you make.

  32. NHSparky says:

    Joe, I’ll go one further–the only area I can think of that has ever MANDATED that homeowners own firearms was Kennesaw, GA.

    How’s their crime rate been over the last 30 years, pray tell?

  33. Reaperman says:

    I dunno, it looks pretty loaded from here. How’d he get security to okay that anyway?

  34. Curt says:

    Hey, everybody! Joe’s still a dumbass!

  35. Sparky: I think a couple of other cities/areas have done it too (one in Utah I think), and the crime stats do compare. :)

    Curt: Yep. Then again, I doubt that will change because while ignorance can be cured, you can’t fix stupid. That usually takes an epiphany, and such rarely happens.

  36. Joe says:

    Y’know, if everyone had your weapons training (but not your demeanor), I’d feel a lot safer about the dreamy “armed society”. I guess people like Joe Morrisey (and 300 frickin’ million other Americans) haven’t. And those people can buy semi-automatic weapons. Starting to get it?

  37. NHSparky says:

    Joey, you know where I get my “demeanor”? Because of annoying fucks like you who think you know everything going around and pissing off those of us who do.

    Go unplug your fucking meter already.

  38. O-4E says:

    @Joe

    Then work on mandating that you must have training before buying a weapon. Simple.

    And people like Morrisey and you aren’t buying weapons..’cus they’re “black and scary”

  39. Flagwaver says:

    Personally, I have fired an AK… I am not impressed with it. The thing is as accurate as a politician’s tongue.

    As for that empty suit with his buttplug on the trigger? Personally, I think he should be arrested for criminal negligence. It could have gone off an killed a politician who might have been trying to do their job. He says it is unloaded, but we all know that it is the unloaded weapon that is dangerous.

  40. Ex-PH2 says:

    “Il Duce”? So, you want people who despise to hang you upside down and spit on you, right? Because that’s what happened to Il Duce.

    Every time he hits the keyboard….every time….

    This is getting to be way too predictable. He isn’t nearly as good at pissing people off as Insipid.

  41. Reaperman says:

    Actually looking at that rifle, does it even have enough of those cosmetic features to be banned under anything? Mind that my total gun ownership experience comes from a pellet gun, but the only thing I see that would make it stand out is its magazine. It looks like it was built to fit inside gun laws.

  42. Hondo says:

    Well, Reaperman – it does have that “scary and evil” pistol grip too. Can’t see it well enough in the photo to tell about the flash suppressor or bayonette mount.

  43. Hondo says:

    OK, I missed it. Where did anyone bring up encouraging or requiring people to go out and buy a gun prior to Joey-boy’s inane rant in comment 26 above?

    “Shall not be infringed” does not equate to “mandatory”, Joey-boy. People who wet their pants at the sight of a gun need not worry about being forced to be near one. They can opt out.

    You’re safe.

  44. Hondo says:

    Call you Il Duce, Joey? No. Your official title is “Comrade Joseph, Socialist Hero of Rock Climbing for Greater Glory Socialist Republic of Durango.” We’d never take that away from you.

    But if a guy named Borat comes to town, you might not want to use your title. He might get upset.

  45. cannoncocker says:

    Thinking about it now, my Bushmaster actually has every single banned feature. With the exception of a grenade launcher. So, just for Joe, I’m going to go to a gun show this weekend and buy a grenade launcher for my Bushmaster with that “Gun Show loophole” thingy I keep hearing about.

  46. Hondo says:

    Ex-PH2: I wonder if Ian Anderson knew Joey-boy in late 1971 or early 1972? That would explain at least one thing . . . .

  47. JDC (OUT FRONT) CAV says:

    Too bad it was not loaded, he would have looked more like an @ss if he fired off a round.

  48. Ex-PH2 says:

    Hondo, that IS a good question, ‘specially since Joey-boy doesn’t know the difference between the Fascisti and the Socialists.

  49. JP says:

    Being Liberal means being an idiot. Here they pretty much prove they don’t even know which guns they want to ban.

  50. PintoNag says:

    No JP, they know exactly which ones they want to ban: ALL OF THEM. What they can’t decide, is where to start. With the administration we have now, they’re kind of like a shopoholic in a clothing store where everything is half off.
