Remark demonstrates manifest arrogance of establishment political class moving to legislate away our natural rights
April 12, 2013
On Thursday, as the Senate voted to begin work on dismantling the Second Amendment, Harry Reid took to the floor and demonstrated just how clueless he is about the firearms he wants to criminalize.
“The events of the last few months has been very tragic,” Reid said. “People going to a movie theater to watch a movie and they’re gunned down? And more would have been gunned down but for the fact that the man’s 100-clip magazine jammed.”
Reid is the Senate Majority Leader. You’d think he would have schooled himself at least minimally in the technology he plans to eliminate. Instead, he insisted on looking like a fool.
His comment follows a similar flub by Democrat Rep. Diana DeGette. “I will tell you these are ammunition — bullets — so the people who have those now they are going to shoot them, and so if you ban — if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available,” she said during a Denver Post forum earlier this week.
Reid’s ignorant and absurd comment once again reveals the manifest arrogance of the political careerists in the district of criminals who think they can legislate away our natural rights.
Until they are convinced to leave – or do so tar and feathered on a rail, at least metaphorically – they will continue to trample our liberty and reduce the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to a quaint anachronism.
