"The Newtown families and Gabby Giffords are in the gun debate to stay, and over time their voices will be more powerful than the NRA."
So said Newsweek's Eleanor Clift during the predictions segment on PBS's McLaughlin Group Friday...
"The culture of guns is beginning to go through a transformation in this country," she added.
Maybe she should say that with a straight face to the people of Chicago so riddled with the kind of gun violence pending legislation will have absolutely no impact on whatsoever.
But nobody seems to care about that - certainly not media members such as Clift.
Tis far more important to restrict gun ownership of law-abiding citizens.
They are called political props, Eleanor. They come and they go.
Google Cindy Sheehan.
If what they’re proposing will have no direct impact on the problem they claim to be addressing,
then they must be challenged as to what “problem” they really ARE addressing.
You see, Eleanor, if NRA becomes tyrannical, we would rise up and fight it too.
“The culture of guns is beginning to go through a transformation in this country,” she added.
Damn right! Concealed carry laws have been passed all over the place, the people are arming themselves and putting armed personnel in schools. And they are telling their elected representatives to get in line!
Yeah..the liberals have found some more victims to line the pockets of the left wing commie machine. Figures.
The Boston bombings changed all that. Look for the NRA to get even more powerful.
Exploitation of tragedy is unbecoming Eleanor. People know exactly what’s going on.
I don’t even believe that Giffords was shot. She is an actress. She will be as powerful as anyone else who wants to be on the cover of Glamour.
Eventually the Newtown families will tire of the spotlight, and catch on to the fact that they’re being used by the left. As for Gabby, well, a lot of us have had enough of her for a lifetime.
Actually, I was hoping for something a litte more...well, er....final [starts with an “O”]
She is a disgusting shill for hatred.
She'd rather oppress all the innocent than CATCH and STOP a single schizophreniac before he kills.
I suspect Eleanor's real concern here involves her own personal life, and those of her friends. There are, after all, people who still keep crazy aunt Mary chained up at night, 'but she's at home'.
Four percent of the people are going to rise up and be more powerful than the NRA?
Obama is trotting them around like the Twin Tower wives. They are nothing but dupes, making money on the backs of their dead children.
Actually, Cindy has been hammering Obama on the war. The media just put her on Ignore when she turned on the Democrats.
