CCRKBA Blasts Dem Double Standard: District Voting Rights v. Gun Rights
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
The [CCRKBA] today accused Congressional Democrats of 'world-class hypocrisy' for pulling a voting rights bill for Washington, D.C. residents because Senate Republicans added an amendment that would strengthen their gun rights, as affirmed in the June 2008 Heller ruling by the Supreme Court."

"House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer ... said the bill -- which would give the District an official vote in the House of Representatives -- would not be considered this week because of the Republican amendment. That amendment would repeal a ban on certain firearms in the District, even though last year's high court ruling said outright bans of whole classes of firearms are unconstitutional. ..." ...

"Next up was the so-called '.50-caliber Sniper Rifle,' ..."

"Now, VPC's Tom Diaz, who has made a career demonizing different firearms, is now going after a class of large-caliber handguns developed solely for big game hunting (thus deflating another myth of the anti-gun lobby, that handguns are designed only for shooting people). Like the terms 'assault rifle' 'plastic handguns' and 'sniper rifle,' Diaz has invented a slur term for the huge handguns, dubbing them 'vest busters.' This alludes to the claim that bullets fired from such handguns will penetrate soft body armor worn by police officers." ...

"Economics are a big consideration. Black market guns will likely be cheaper than they were at the gun shop or sporting goods store. And no more serial numbers on guns or any of that silly paperwork to fill out."

"He decided to shoot 'green' bullets."

"Lead, a toxic metal that can lower the IQs of children, is the essential element in most ammunition on the market today." ...

"When they didn't find what they wanted on the first floor, they headed upstairs. At least two of the men had guns, investigators said."

"The men were inside the home for a total of some 20 minutes before taking off in a car."

"Mark Twain is quoted as saying, 'The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.' Given the reaction of congressional leaders to NRA-backed amendments to the D.C. Voting Rights Act, reports of the death of gun voters' influence may be equally premature."

"After the last election, the 'Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence' (aka 'Handgun Control') celebrated by saying:"
"'The election was a major victory for common sense gun laws, and a powerful rebuke of the gun lobby and its 'any gun, anywhere' agenda. …'"
"Far from a congressional 'rebuke of the gun lobby,' however, Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid both shot down the Obama administration trial balloon for re-implementing the 'assault weapon' ban." ...

There's a proposal for socialized health care, taxes that further penalize success, an attack on our freedom of speech (the First Amendment), the elimination of the Second Amendment (the right to keep and bear arms).

"The bill repeals one statute that generally prohibits weapons on the state Capitol Complex."

"Second, it amends a separate statute prohibiting weapons in courthouses so that the ban will apply only to those portions of the Capitol in which the Supreme Court and its offices are located."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today the taxing power, rather than chattel slavery, is the instrument by which the parasitical element of the population subsists. And that element, which includes politicians, panics at the slightest reduction in the state's power to plunder. Once you start liberating taxpayers, even a little tiny bit, nobody knows where it may end. —Joseph Sobran
