Heller Summed Up

What it’s all about:

At that point, a reporter interjected: “the Mayor (DC Mayor Adrian M. Fenty) says the handgun ban and his initiatives have significantly lowered violent crime in the District. How do you answer that, Mr. Heller?”

The initial answer certainly wasn’t expected – Dick Heller laughed. Ruefully.

Pointing at the Mayor who was making his way across the plaza, surrounded by at least six DC police officers, Heller said, “the Mayor doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

“He doesn’t walk on the street like an average citizen. Look at him; he travels with an army of police officers as bodyguards – to keep him safe. But he says that I don’t have the right to be a force of one to protect myself. Does he look like he thinks the streets are safe?”

There was no follow-up question.

    I wish I hadn’t had to quit watching the interviews at the end of the cspan stream before this quote… anyone have a link to the video?

    I saw the mayor say that and blurted out something like “effing LIAR”

    Violent crime has been up ever since the ban, and he either knows it and is lying, or doesn’t know and is stupid–not incompetent, but stupid.

    Whether he’s a liar or stupid he should’nt be in charge of anything more important than a mop and bucket.
