Skip to comments.Ted Cruz uses pistol grip to rebut call for assault weapon ban
Posted on 01/31/2013 11:29:50 AM PST by neverdem
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz displayed a flair for showmanship this afternoon at the Senates gun violence hearing as he sought to puncture the argument for a proposed ban on assault weapons.
What it bans, I would suggest to you, are scary looking guns, he said.
With a life size photo of a Remington 750, a popular hunting rifle used as Cruz said, by millions of Americans the senator argued that the proposed ban focuses on cosmetic features such as pistol grips that in no way change the lethality of a weapon.
He produced a plastic pistol grip and held it to the photo to demonstrate...

>It depends on what you are “hunting.” <
They’d like to think so...
History has repeatedly proven the stupidity of that - for those that try to push it.
Yeah, they are PDWs in .gov hands, but evil assault weapons in ours.
And ours are only semi-auto.
I would submit that it is exactly the opposite in reality...to wit, that a citizen’s weapon is for “personal defense” rather than any assault. and that the government’s weapon is much more likely to be utilized in an “assault”, as in, an assault on law-abiding citizens who refuse to surrender their firearms.
Great. Now they're redefining PDWs, too.
I'm beginning to feel the sting of that old joke "in the Soviet Union, not even history is safe from the government."
Failure to read the entire article before commenting can lead to embarrassing circumstances...
Ted Cruz is the hammer. You would never see Ol Kay Baby Hutchinson doing this with a firearm picture. Maybe with a biscuit pan and a can of spray Pam and the horror of something sticking in the oven....oh the HORROR...
On a higher note what about the Texas legistator and HB872. Any firearm manufactured in Texas does not have to conform or fall under jurisdiction of the Federal Firearm laws!!! Upto 1.5” (38”MM)bore including supressors. You want a 20mm Vulcan and it is made in Texas and you can afford it....buy it. Now we gotta get Strauss off his a$$.
Not sure how to paste links but here it is
Not nearly as embarrassing as your failure to understand the concept of a rhetorical question.
Anyway, I did read the whole article.
I don’t mean “where the hell is Cornyn” physically... I mean “where the hell is is Cornyn” in LEADERSHIP ON THIS ISSUE!
Cornyn may have *lead off* the discussion... but Cruz LED.
If you still don’t get it may I suggest remedial tenth grade analytical reasoning.
Anyway, I did read the whole article.
I dont mean where the hell is Cornyn physically... I mean where the hell is is Cornyn in LEADERSHIP ON THIS ISSUE!
I happen to agree with your conclusion -- once adequately explained.
But, honestly, thou protesteth too much...
>> But, honestly, thou protesteth too much...
What is *that* supposed to mean?
You're a smart guy. Figure it out.
Well if you guys oust Cornyn in the primary, please make sure you don’t replace him with someone prone to make stupid comments about rape.
Are you OK with Ted Cruz?
And who have we elected that made a stupid comment about rape?
I think you are referring to Clayton Williams who was defeated by Ann Richards...
We would have been better off with Clayton...
Thanks for the ping!
I take it that's a Kalashnikitty sticker?
Leaning up against the Ritz=Carlton bar, clinking glasses with a bank lobbyist while waiting on his flight to a New Hampshire ski resort, and waving at Bob Menendez in the terminal as Bob heads the other way for another teeny-hooker weekend down in the Islands.
Is this what you were referring to? (From the source article.)
Sen. John Cornyn got his turn earlier. He demanded hearings on the Justice Department’s failures to adequately enforce existing gun laws.
I don't think Tick is far off the mark. Okay, Cornyn read a statement .... Cruz made points.
Cornyn could have got up, put up a poster of a bunch of F&F recoveries by Mexican cops and demanded Alien Larva Holder be subpoenaed RIGHT NOW to explain why he's running political scams down in Mexico (and getting people killed) instead of faithfully executing the laws of the United States. Now that would have made points, instead of just a statement.
In fact, I'd like to see Cruz put a half-Nelson on Larval Alien just as Cornyn comes flying off the top rope. That's the kind of double-team effort the GOP needs to whip on these Grabber Clones.
Yep, that's her..Handmaiden of the girlie girls..
