Sen. Chuck Schumer compares assault weapons to child pornography
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | December 17, 2012 | Charlie Spiering

Sen. Chuck Schumer D-N.Y. asserted on the Senate floor this afternoon that the Second Amendment was “not absolute” comparing restrictions on assault weapons to restrictions on child pornography.

“No amendment can be absolute,” Schumer said. “I believe you can be pro-gun and pro gun safety, just like you can be in favor of free speech but also against child pornography.”

Schumer proposed an assault weapon bans for civilians arguing that it would be an acceptable restriction on the Second Amendment.

“We can come together,” he said. “There can be a way of moving forward in the middle.”

“There can be a way of moving forward in the middle.”

EQUALS

Republicans and those who cherish freedom capitulating.

Democrats NEVER move and never compromise.

Forget assault rifles, the most dangerous thing in Washington on a Sunday morning is to get between that libtard Up-Chuck Schumer and a camera.

What an embarrassment that guy is to the few rational people of New York. Just shut up and go away. You don’t understand our Founders, Up-Chuck.

Then we should compare Chuck Shumer and Diane Feinstein’s fixation on them to porn addiction.

I’d be willing to bet old Chuck knows more than a little about child pornography, but that drooling lackwit doesn’t know the first thing about firearms.

Every time we “come together” with liberals it is an loss for us and they still aren’t satisfiied and we keep doing it until we’ve lost everything, that’s a big part of the reason we’ve arrived at where we are, our “Conservative” and “Republican” leaders have compromised until we have lost our country. I remember in the Sixties Sen.Everett Dirksen (R)Il. saying “Republicans and democrats had the same goals just a different way of arriving at them” I knew that was wrong, I was a Goldwater Conservative Republican And I knew the democrats were socialist, today they don’t even hide it and the media doesn’t care, wasn’t there another obama appointee last week or so that is proudly a communist?

Let’s ask Schmucky Chucky Schumer if he agrees that we can put limits on violent films and games?

After he checks how much money he gets from these industries, they answer will be ———.

He is proof that there is no limit to the insanity of a liberal.

OK, Chuck, you first: Change corrupt, incorrigible, immoral, derelict Hollywood and the gangsta’ culture. Then we can talk. (Oh, by the way, these two groups of people are major DemocRAT supporters.)

So we should ban "assault weapons" because they were never anticipated by the Framers in their day of muzzle-loaders?

By that logic we should similarly restrict free speech since in their day free speech meant a chat over a pint at the pub or literally getting up on your soapbox in the town square. We should control access to email, blogs (professional publishers and news organizations only), and in CA facebook pages will be limited in capacity to 5 friends or less. Sound ridiculous? So do the arguments against the 2nd Amendment.

20 + kids are killed by gun’s and we get weeks of hue and cry that the laws must be changed, and this by the same people that actively support thousands of kids being slaughtered by abortionists.

Could we set up a physical edifice to remind the country of the legal genocide that is happening so that there is a concrete memorial of the on going slaughter of innocents?

The fear is that the second to last sentence in Lincoln’s second inaugural address will be this countries destiny.

” Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.””

It will be in support of the innocent children instead of the innocent slaves.

In 1962 Thomas J Dodd and Emanuel Cellar said they wanted to ONLY register handguns. Long guns would not be affected!

In 1980 Handgun Control Inc said they ONLY wanted to control handguns. Long guns would not be affected.

Now they want to ban handguns and rifles that look “different”.

Chuck - thanks but no thanks.

There are no limits on freedom of speech and there should be no limit on your right to defend yourself!

You have no business depriving me of my 2nd Amendment rights because a dirtbag shot up a school full of children.

And I don’t want MY kids to become some lunatic’s next target because you don’t trust me to be a responsible gun owner.

Great comparison. Blaming gun violence on guns IS like blaming child pornography on cameras. No, my friends, the Senator from the great state of New York has it right for once.
