Posted on 06/20/2006 10:54:09 AM PDT by 45Auto
10. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio) Consistently the only Republican to speak in favor of anti-2nd Amendment legislation on the Senate floor.
9. Jack Reed (D.-R.I.) The most vocal opponent on the Senate floor of congressional legislation to prevent lawsuits against firearms manufacturers based on the actions of criminals.
8. John Kerry (D.-Mass.) Accepted a shotgun as a campaign gift from union officials, even though it would have been banned under a bill he cosponsored.
7. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D.-N.Y.) Though just in her first term as an elected official, she campaigned for gun control while First Lady, advocating gun owner licensing, handgun registration and the retention by the federal government of records on lawful purchasers of firearms.
6. Frank Lautenberg (D.-N.J.) Despite government studies showing that fewer than 1% of criminals get their guns from gun shows, Lautenberg sponsored legislation to run gun shows out of business.
5. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.) Sponsor of the much-vaunted assault-weapon ban of 1994-2004. Despite the ban's having been found to have been misdirected and irrelevant to crime, Feinstein said she wished for a stronger law, one that would say, "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn [your firearms] all in." Feinstein carried a handgun for her own protection in California.
4. Barbara Boxer (D.-Calif.) Sponsor of bills to ban compact handguns, such as those commonly carried for protection, by making the legality of their manufacture in the U.S. contingent upon the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' (BATFE) regulation permitting the same type of firearm to be imported. BATFE uses regulatory authority over firearms importation arbitrarily and, some say, illegally. Boxer hoped the BATFE would do the same with U.S.-made firearms.
3. Ted Kennedy (D.-Mass.) A generation ago, this liberal lion sponsored legislation to ban and otherwise restrict handguns. He hasnt let up a bit since.
2. Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.) Minority whip is top anti-gun activist in his partys Senate leadership and a reliable activist for anti-gun legislation in his own right.
1. Charles Schumer (D.-N.Y.) Sponsor of legislation to ban firearms as "assault weapons," to ban hunting, recreational, practice and defensive ammunition as "armor piercing," and to impose a waiting period on handgun sales. The member of Congress who most seeks publicity for himself on gun-control issues.
Ping. Not something we like to see but certainly what we need to know.
They had to put one Republican on the list to make it "fair and balanced".
Ping to you...
UH! There's two.
He's the member of Congress who most seeks publicity for himself, period.
No one else is even in his league.
Schumer, like most urban liberals in the NYC area, just wants to keep "minority thugs" unarmed. They would never think of arming themselves, as they are totally dependent on the police to protect themselves. Urban liberals (and, sad to say, most Manhattanites and Brooklynites of any stripe) don't have the balls to protect themselves.
Two? Not on this list.
New York, Massachusetts, and California--the liberal, smelly, hairy, unwashed armpits of the nation.
I don't know DeWine but I would find it hard to not include Sen. Mickulski ahead of him.
"8. John Kerry (D.-Mass.) Accepted a shotgun as a campaign gift from union officials, even though it would have been banned under a bill he cosponsored. "
During the campaign Kerry claimed to be a true gun aficionado that loved gun sports and hunting, and was part of the "gun culture".
During the campaign it came out he owned a unfired war relic and a shotgun.
Doesn't it seem that a billionaire who in the year before the election owned 6 estates around the country and overseas would own a virtual arsenal?
It seems he would own multiple hunting, skeet shooting, birding shotguns and target pistol sets for at least one or two of his estates, for guests and personal use.
Can you imagine visiting your billionaire hunting Buddie's estate in Montana and finding out he has no sporting guns of any sort (unless the butler brought his one personal all purpose shotgun)?
I'm pretty familiar with all these scumbags.
The scary part is........
Rudy makes her look moderate on gun issues, he is an even bigger opponent of the 2nd amendment.
You know your a liberal on an issue when Hillary Clinton is to your right on something.
And yet so many Freepers like Rudy.
Do you remember when Jon Corzine made a crack comparing Schumer to a monkey who "throws his feces" when he doesn't get attention.
Schumers response was priceless, its the only time I have ever seen him in front of a camera, speechless and just stunned.
This coming from the tiny leftist state of WASHINGTON????? As liberal, smelly, unwashed, and hairy as they come.
We haven't had any left-wing anarchist riots in California that I can recall.
Q: What's the most dangerous spot in Washington DC?
A: The space between Chuck Schumer and a camera.
Q: What is Chuck Schumer's favorite thing to have for breakfast?
A: A press conference.
As a candidate and public servant, Spencer has been proud to run and win with the Conservative Party of New Yorks endorsement. John Spencer has always clearly and unashamedly taken a principled stand for his pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-growth, pro-2nd amendment, and anti-illegal immigration positions. As our candidate for the U.S. Senate, Spencer will provide a clear contrast to Senator Clintons views. If we nominate a Republican who agrees with Senator Clinton on these issues, we are destined to lose.
Its no secret that alot of other dems who want to run for prez are looking to see if he can find weaknesses in her that they can exploit in the dem primary.
