Clinton speaks on guns

Bill:

Nobody wants to repeal the Second Amendment, and nobody wants to keep you out of the deer woods, but wouldn’t it be nice if your children didn’t have to worry about being mowed down by an assault weapon when they turn the corner?

First, it’s not that great of a worry statistically. Second, Bill Clinton of all people should know the political folly of supporting such a notion.

    I realize short term memory loss is an issue with oldsters but you’d think he’d remember getting his ass handed to him in ’94 after they did the first AWB.

  2. Exurbankevin Says:

    Me, I’m more worried about creepy old men hooking up with girls way, way too young for them than I am about assault weapons on every corner, but that’s just me.

  3. Rio Arriba Says:

    Remember that catchy David Byrne song from Talking Heads?– “Same as it ever was!”

    Willie is still the same lying POS he always was.

  4. nk Says:

    I counted only five lies in that sentence, two explicit and three by implication, which passes for honesty, I guess, when it comes to the Clintons.

  5. Weer'd Beard Says:

    Not only does he not want to repeal the 2nd Amendment….but is seems like he can’t be bothered to actually READ it, in light of his “Deer woods” reference.

    Because the 2nd Amendment talks an aweful lot about Bambi and duck hunting.

  6. Huck Says:

    If kids do “worry about being mowed down by an assault weapon when they turn the corner” it’s because the libs have led them to believe that to be a possibility.

    What’d really be nice Slick Willie, would be if suppossedly educated people like yourself would stop telling bald faced lies to the public.

  7. Ken Says:

    I think they figure they’ve got 15 or 20 million soon-to-be-legals say they don’t have to worry about a repeat of 1994.

    What do you think?

    Doesn’t BJ Clinotn like his wifes new position, she can now make good on all the pre-pays.

    Old BJ Clinton was much more comfortable with his mentors take on the second amendment, blacks shouldn’t be allowed to own guns.

    Democrats, raise taxes, fund socialism and ban guns. You connect the dots.

  9. Kristopher Says:

    Clinton knows exactly where this is going to lead. He is just being a good politician’s spouse, and spouting the straight party line.

    He and Hillary would just love to see Obambi crash and burn, as long as they don’t go down with it. AWB mk. 2 could do just that.

    They can say “told ya so” while cleaning up in the aftermath.

  10. Kristopher Says:

    And part of this is that the Dems havn’t figured out that the pure fuddites make up a small minority of shooters these days.

    The majority of us shooters can survive without pretty wood stocked Rem-chester bolt guns … they aren’t the type of weapon the second amendment was crafted to protect ( unless configured as a deliberate sniper rifle ).

  11. SoupOrMan Says:

    Where’s Bill’s sense of equality? He should demand that children all be armed with these assault weapons to deter the other kids from going on shooting sprees.

  12. Robert Says:

    Is he talking about the Davidian kids the FBI shot down?

  13. emdfl Says:

    # 12 wins the prize, heh.

  14. Silence Dogood Says:

    80% of the violent crimes in this country are perpetrated by .33% of the population, care to guess? DING! Gangs. Care to guess just what percentage of this crime was committed with an “Assault Weapon” before during and after the AWB? DING! nearly NOTHING. DOJ, CDC and the FBI all agree, the AWB did nothing. So what is the best thing our lame Government can come up with? DING! Dog and Pony show with a new assault weapons ban, since it worked so well before.

  15. B Smitth Says:

    SD: I don’t believe the AWB (I or II) had (will have) ANYTHING to do with crime (Well,certainly not by gangs unaffiliated with the government, anyway).
    Hell, Clinton said so himself, even as he signed the damn thing: “Although this legislation will not reduce crime, it is an Important First Step…”. Sound familiar?
    He just never said what it was the first step to.

  16. Kristopher Says:

    It was an important first step to a Republican government in 2000.

    It’s too bad the R’s were to stupid to realize this.

  17. Leguleius Says:

    I don’t understand how all you guys can continue to say that major new gun control is only an outside possibility.

    The fact of the matter is that these laws are more about control than they are about guns.

    Right now the Democrats are salivating at the opportunity they have in a bad economy to hoist major socialist style programs including forced redistribution of the worksweat of some Americans to other Americans (and, some non-Americans as it were).

    They will come after the guns, because the guns are a check on their power grab. Strong confiscatory gun control is essential to them because their plans for America will make a large enough portion of the population “fighting mad” that they want to have the claws removed.

    Just watch.

  19. emdfl Says:

    What was that quote?
    Something like:
    “What makes them think they have the only lists?”

  20. Ken Says:

    I think Mike Vanderboegh said, that, quoting it as overheard at a gun show.

  21. Don Gwinn Says:

    My kids don’t worry about assault weapons when they walk home from school. My kids worry about running into packs of violent kids in desperate need of parents, because that’s the danger that has actually confronted them in this town.
