Nancy Pelosi: We Need More Gun Control To “Protect And Defend” The Constitution!
As if Nancy Pelosi could get any worse. Now, she’s calling for more gun control to “protect and defend” our Constitution...Yes, you read that correctly. Here is what she said in a recent press release:
..."“In Congress, there can be no more fitting memorial to the lives lost in Aurora, in Newtown, and across the country than a concerted effort to enact common sense gun safety legislation,” she said on the one year anniversary of the Aurora tragedy. We must uphold our oath to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution and all Americans by expanding background checks and keeping dangerous firearms out of the wrong hands,” she continued. “We must restore confidence in the safety of our homes, schools, movie theaters and neighborhoods by taking clear, concrete steps to prevent gun violence.”
WTF?? Is that like saying like saying in order to ‘protect and defend’ our First Amendment rights Congress needs to pass onerous censorship laws that restrict one’s ability to speak openly and freely? I'd rather they focused on criminal and violent nutjob control instead of looking for new ways to make hard working citizens INTO criminals. I also find it funny that mental health reforms have all but disappeared from the debates.....
The missing VILLAGE IDIOT has been found in DC....

Needless to say, being what feels like the only bleeding heart progressive liberal lefty on CM, I agree with her. I think strict background checks are needed. And personally I think any magazines over 10 rounds should be banned, and I think there is no need for people outside of the military to have assault rifles. I know most of you don't agree. This is just my feelings about the subject.
