The one and only.
On Friday night’s Rachel Maddow Show, Illinois representative Luis Gutiérrez told guest host Melissa Harris-Perry that the violence in his Chicago district could be cause for lawmakers to take action not only on semi-automatic weapons, but on handguns. Noting (correctly) that nearly 97 percent of Chicago gun murders in 2011, the most recent year for which statistic are available, were carried out with handguns, Gutiérrez said,”It’s clear that we need to look at handguns also.”
The recent debate on gun control has centered around reimplementing a strengthened version of the 1994 assault-weapons ban and on limiting magazine sizes. It would leave handguns largely untouched.
But, but, but! Handguns are already banned in Chicago!
You can tell that they still don’t know what a semi is.....
You can tell that they still know how to take advantage of deliberate misconstrual, deception, and repetitive propaganda.
Mr. Gutiérrez, we need to get rid of thugs in Chicago and every other major city in America? If that is done, crime will decline substantially. Please figure out how to do that without taking my freedoms, liberties, rights and money. Or one day real Americans are going to do it for free.

Fine. You can look, but you’d better not touch!
YouTube on Gun Control is Genocide:
“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press.” Thomas Jefferson
Since virtually every one of the horrific gun crimes we’ve seen in the media has been perpetrated by a leftwing nutcase, including the ex-cop still on the loose, perhaps it’s time we focused on liberals themselves instead of the particular rock or stick they happened to use, and restrict their access to weapons.
I think he meant “look down the barrel of handguns,” in which case he’d be correct.
actually, it seems pretty clear that Illinois needs to A.) build another couple of prisons and B.) start locking up gang bangers. It’s hard to do that when you can’t even meet your pension requirements though...thanks to all the unions...and all the democrats...and all their various entitlements.
Rats are always welcome to look at my handguns.
" FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) A judge has decided a Fort Hood shooting suspect still can face the death penalty if convicted in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation.
The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, on Wednesday denied Maj. Nidal Hasans request to remove the death penalty as a punishment option.
Osborn was expected to rule later on Hasans request to plead guilty to 13 counts of premeditated murder in the 2009 attack on the Texas Army post. But Army rules prohibit a judge from accepting a guilty plea in a death penalty case.
Hasan also is charged with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He faces execution or life in prison without parole.
Osborn is holding hearings Wednesday through Friday to reconsider defense motions previously rejected by the former judge."
Translation. We need to start taking handguns away from the law abiding white people. Cause we sure and hell ain’t going into the hood and get shot at.
Who were the perps, Luis? Why not do something to specifically control the lawless savages?
Indeed, let’s get the democRat gun agenda all out in the open.
A leftist agenda exposed is a leftist agenda defeated - usually.
Yes, look at those handguns next to a copy of the 2nd Amendment.
