"I will vote for assault weapons ban because maintaining law and order and saving lives is more important than preventing imagined tyranny."
Yeah? How about preventing REAL tyranny?
He’s suffering from mad cow disease.
His brain is a sponge.
What was the opinion of the founders, Harry?
Did they “imagine” tyranny when they set up Constitutional safeguards for the rights of the people AGAINST GOVERNMENT INTRUSION (tyranny)?
Infringe much Harry?
Harry is not an imagined tyrant, himself.
What if America loses its collective mind and votes for (gasp!) Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz one day?
How are we going to stop them from imposing their demonic right-wing agenda on us?
Huh, Harry, huh?! Every think about that!!?
Oops. Sorry. Coffee's running low. I get cranky when the coffee runs low.
Dingy Harry is in over his head. He’s too old for that job.
Reid denies that there is need for concern, but he seems to at least imply that we are doing the right thing to address this “imaginary” problem.
I guess he hasn’t heard of the EPA.
Or maybe tyrants are just ignorant of their own tyranny.
So there will never be another tyrant? Not tomorrow or a thousand years hence? And he can guarantee this? Thought not.
Harry Reid is an evil man. Pure evil. Harry is every bit as evil as Obama, perhaps even worse.
That’s the go to move of a juvenile mind when caught doing something. Mockery.
So, National Rifle Association... still going to grade this guy high?
That's why the right to bear arms is in the constitution...to make sure we are able to defend ourselves HERE IN THE USA.
The Federal Government supports a whole different kind of army.
Pretty much exactly what Hitler said in the 1930's. Right before he built the imagined concentration camps.
Please tell me the apparent tyranny is just a nightmare. I was afraid that the anti-American communist in our White House was real, that the trampling of the First Amendment rights to freedom of religion and free speech was real, that the trampling of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms was real, that the IRS probing private emails without a warrant was a real violation of the Fourth Amendment, and that so much of what I see from the druggie I thought was in our White House was real. Is this all just a nightmare that seems to be lasting eight years, and we'll wake up to find that a decent American like Palin has been the president all along while we dreamed of what would have happened if we made the worst imaginable mistake?
I’m getting real sick of these smarmy SOB’s!
Maybey Harry should read an “imaginary” history book.
They don’t consider total control of our everyday lives to be tyranny. Just common everyday business to them. Freakin’ losers. Just like nanny bloomers they want to tell you when to eat, what to eat, where you can go, how you’ll get there, how big a house you “need”, how much soda is enough and on and on. They don’t consider meddling in every aspect of our lives as a bad thing. They “feel” they’re looking out for our best interest. They aren’t. No amount of discussion will EVER change their though process.
Should not one wear a gas mask designed to absorb loathsome odors whenever one sees Whorehouse Harry’s name?
Should not we be warned if anyone is to print the name of “he who must not be mentioned”?
I hope that I live long enough to have the opportunity to take a bodacious Obama on that slimeball’s grave.
