New York’s most famous censured Congressman, Charlie Rangel, is absolutely foaming at the mouth over the fate of the assault weapons ban. How dare Democrats like Harry Reid kill it? Doesn’t Reid know that “We’re talking about millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons?”
To put that in perspective: just 1 Million would be more than the total of all U.S. military combat deaths – from 1775 to the present – combined. Still, according to Rangel, “Millions of kids” are being gunned down by assault weapons which are easier for them to get than a basic laptop.
I’m ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting.
But you know it’s really basically the absence of the voices of good people. I cannot believe that politicians are afraid of the NRA, if they thought for one minute that the churches and the synagogue and the priest and the ministers were saying “Hey! Do the right thing and we have your back.”
