Jimmy Carter on assault weapons

Failure Jimmy Carter says the only reason to own weapons that look like assault rifles is to kill police and engage in mass murder:

But none of us wants to own an assault weapon, because we have no desire to kill policemen or go to a school or workplace to see how many victims we can accumulate before we are finally shot or take our own lives. Thatís why the White House and Congress must not give up on trying to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, even if it may be politically difficult.

Update: From Les Jones in comments:

An old-fashioned shotgun is all a fella needs to kill his sister-in-law’s cat, as Jimmy found out.

Wow.

Update 2: A cry for help.

    Jimmah who?

  2. DADvocate Says:

    There is nothing in the Constitution that says your right to bear arms depends upon your reason to for owning arms. Given the historical context of the Constitution, fighting the government was probably the intended reason of our forefathers.

    Debunking that filth would be easy but the density of lies would require a long, long post……

    He’s about a informed on firearms as he was on the economy and military.

    Stick to growing peanuts and building houses Jimmy.

  5. the pistolero Says:

    That’s pretty rich coming from someone protected by guards armed with the very rifles he says we shouldn’t be able to own.

  6. harleycowboy Says:

    I guess we’re supposed to defend ourselves with oars.

    Can you legally rabbit hunt with one of those?

  7. retro Says:

    Actually, I always thought they were for the reeducation of wayward and tyranical politicians…

  8. Canthros Says:

    Geez, I’ve been wondering for months now why I bought that AR. Good to know!

    What a tool this guy is.

  9. Mikee Says:

    Any one vote majority allowing passage of gun control legislation is an irrevocable mandate, good for all time forever amen.

    Any one vote majority favoring the human right to self defense is only a temporary condition, to be corrected through any means necessary, as soon as possible.

    If that’s true, then why do the police have them?

    Billy had more class than “Jimmah” will ever have.

  13. harleycowboy Says:

    I recall Jimmy being ask a question and he said he didn’t know the answer. I knew then we were in trouble.

  14. Nylarthotep Says:

    Clueless on guns, foreign policy, economics, and reality overall.

    Maybe someone should tell him what an idiot he is making of himself.

  15. ObiJohn Says:

    Jimmy Carter is an unfailing indicator of the correct side of any issue… just look to see where he stands and take the opposite side.

  16. Nathaniel Says:

    Can he really be so clueless about guns that he can own nine of them yet not understand that weapons branded “assault weapons” are not operationally different from common semi-automatic hunting rifles that I’m sure he owns? It never ceases to amaze me how much black guns terrify people, even those who should know better.

  17. The Armed Partisan Says:

    I saw a bumper sticker the other day with the Obama crest and the words “Welcome Back, Carter!”. Hilarious.

    But I think that Jim boy is probably way off base on this one. Seeing as how the constitution provides provision for the protection of the natural right to keep and bear arms and makes no mention of the legitimate existence of police forces, I would say that the killing of government forces under any guise who seek to violate the constitution is legitimate and constitutionally protected.
