Carolyn McCarthy readies gun control bill

One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday.

McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.

“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.

Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.

Well, that didn’t take long did it?

As predicted, the gun grabbers are getting ready to make a HUGE push and yet another lame and misguided attempt to take away the gun rights of MILLIONS of LEGAL, SANE American gun owners, all because of the actions of one crazed person.

That’s right, a member of the loony left, Jared Loughner, a delusional, mentally unbalanced leftist that lists Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto as his favorite reading material goes totally nuts, kills six people and injures 14 more and immediately the left goes into full moonbat mode and wants to ban ALL guns.

Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.

Again I have to point out, some folks that actually know Jared Loughner have remarked that he was ‘different’ and a ‘loner’ and that he had some really strange ideas about government, currency, God and so forth.

Having different ideas and beliefs isn’t against the law the last time I checked. And quite frankly, I have different ideas and beliefs than do some of my friends and fellow Conservatives. Some may argue that this makes ME mentally unbalanced, as is their right to argue, but it doesn’t necessarily make them any more correct than it would make me to question their sanity simply because they believe something differently than I do.

As this scenario develops, it seems that Loughner was known to be unstable.

The main suspect in the Arizona massacre has links to a fanatical pro-white magazine.

Fox News claimed it had seen a Department of Homeland Security memo which said Jared Lee Loughner, 22, had ties to American Renaissance, which is staunchly anti-immigration, anti-government and anti-Semitic.
Loughner has been described as unstable and has been known to make death threats in the past, according to the local sheriff.

The FBI is investigating whether the man is the same person who posted a rambling Internet manifesto accusing the government of mind control and demanding a new currency.
In a series of YouTube videos, a person identifying himself as Jared Lee Loughner complains about government mind control, treasonous laws, illiterate dreamers and the U.S. currency.

He also gives his own definition of terrorism.

‘If I define terrorist then a terrorist is a person who employs terror or terrorism especially as a political weapon,’ the text in the video - entitled ‘My Final Thoughts - Jared Lee Loughner!’ - reads.

‘I define terrorist. SOURCE

There is much more on Loughner at the link. I must say, it’s a shame when you have to turn to news sources outside of the United States to get detailed information about stories taking place IN the United States.

In less than 2 days it has been discovered that Jared Loughner is a moonbat, an anarchist, a far left libber and Dem supporter that didn’t believe Gabrielle Giffords was far enough to the left for his tastes, is quite possibly a racist, and has had a number of run-ins in which his sanity was called into question.

Yes indeed, that’s all the reason a liberal gun grabber like Carolyn McCarthy would need to justify HER belief that ALL guns, and ALL people that own guns are inherently evil.

McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.

McCarthy’s bill will look to protect ordinary people, she said, but did not offer further details.

“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass,” she said. “I don’t want to give the NRA – excuse the pun – the ammunition to come at me either.” SOURCE

Ms. McCarthy; in true liberal gun grabber fashion, that is exactly what you are doing, giving American gun owners all the ammunition we need to debunk your liberal lunacy. A deranged individual commits a horrendous crime, mass murder, and the bleeding hearts like you spring to action in the name of protecting the ordinary people.

Ms. McCarthy, you are a bleeding heart Liberal MORON.

Every time there is a crime committed with a gun, people like you come out of the woodwork to champion the cause of protecting the ordinary people.

Did it ever occur to you Ms. McCarthy, maybe the ordinary people don’t need you or your gun grabbing that is designed to look like you have our best interest at heart? Did it ever occur to you that perhaps had your husband been armed and trained that he may still be alive? Has that thought ever entered your head Ms. McCarthy?

And now we will see an attack on the First Amendment as well!

Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.

So, I guess it will soon be illegal to tell our elected Congress critters exactly where to go and what they can do once they get there? I wonder why REAL hate speech and the people at Westboro Baptist Church, aren’t on this Dems radar screen?

You bleeding heart Democratic morons need to get this through your thick heads, GUNS don’t kill people, and all the gun control laws in the world would not have stopped this recent action from happening.

Then-Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine issued an executive order making it harder for people who have been committed to mental health treatment centers to buy a gun.

In 2008 President George W. Bush signed a law expanding the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which registered gun dealers use, to include more comprehensive reporting of mental health records. Under the current law, it is illegal for anyone who has been “adjudicated as a mental defective or committed to a mental institution” to purchase a firearm, according to the FBI’s website.

However, Loughner did not fall into either of those categories, according to Josh Horwitz, the executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

“I’ve seen no evidence that he falls into those categories. It’s the same thing as this guy at Virginia Tech,” said Horwitz. “We can do a much better job checking people’s mental health background.”

And here my friends, is where the fly hits the ointment. Gun checks, conducted by the FBI every time a weapon is purchased, do absolutely NO good whatsoever if the person is crazy but has never been committed, and has no OFFICIAL record of mental illness.

Get ready folks, we have a fight coming in Congress. Now we get to see if all of these new folks in Congress are Conservatives or RINOs.

Please don’t misunderstand this post, I am appalled by the recent happenings in Tucson, but the entire American public doesn’t need to suffer an attack on their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights because of the actions of one crazed individual.

    If the moronic hat fits…

    Gird your loins, Citizens. Call and write your Senators and Representatives. Let them know what Loughner did was terribly wrong, and definitely not the way to address grievenances with the government, but it should not be used as a catalyst to saddle us with more draconian laws to control us. A few bad apples do not spoil the whole bunch. I feel bad for Representative Giffords family, but we can’t allow this to become a further deminishing of our rights. Otherwise, we might as well buy a Mao jacket and hat.

    Looney has no chance of getting anything passed on gun control. McCarthy is a wackjob. Warning to the left. Don’t even try to mess with the 2nd Amendment.

  3. deh1030 says:

    The shooting of Gabby Giffords is TERRIBLE and so is the shooting of other decent freedom-loving Americans. I think of the little 9 year old girl and the others killed by this wacko. I wonder why the media has not asked about the parents and what they knew about their son’s activities. The Mother worked for Pima County and her son had 5 “incidents” that were later “reduced”. Could this be why his name was not on a list which might have “questioned or prevented” his ability to purchase guns?

    Now here comes the GOVERNMENT to HELP AND PROTECT us! Several congressmen are talking about “limiting” “negative” and ‘incendiary” speech! People, WAKE UP this is a direct attack on our 1st Amendment. There is also a New York rep who wants to introduce “GUN CONTROL LAWS”; This is a direct violation of the 2nd Amendment! REMEMBER MOST MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE TOTALLY DISREGARDED OUR CONSTITUTION!

    We need to speak out against wackos but we MUST STAND UP for our freedom or this Government will take it away “to defend and protect us”. Remember Ben Franklin’s admonition “those who would give up a little freedom for a little security deserve neither”

  4. GM Roper says:

    I am appalled at the tragic deaths in Arizona, but more appalled that Dem supporters went after Sarah Palin and other conservatives before one word of sorrow or concern was uttered about the victims.

    On my blog I deliberately waited until facts came in before posting on the loony left.

    As far as Ms. McCarthy is concerned, thank God for November 2, 2010.

  5. Robert says:

    I’m done talking about the victims of this crime. Too bad, I feel for the families.

    But since the left has decided hijack this event to attack ME and the rest of us, it’s no longer a “tragic event” it’s a complete “War” and the people that died are just casualties of war. Well done liberals.

    See the crime was horrific, the actions by the media and the politicians after the incident took the time we should be mourning and turned it into a battle. The made the event WORSE

    We can’t say anything to convey our sadness for the victims, because the loons in the media have went on the offensive against AMERICANS… Put away the black funeral clothes and our sadness, it’s time to fight. Really well done Lefty loons.

    So offense is where I stand. I’m taking to task any liberal POS that wants to blame ME (And ALL OF US) for this incident, just like they always do, and get proven wrong…

    Pray for the victims, but take no prisoners in this assault on US from the communist bastards in our midst.

  6. mrchuck says:

    I just saw the booking photo of this crazy shooter.
    He looks like a crazy, who is having his 15 minutes of fame.
    I expect all the gun and constitutional grabbers would appear like mushrooms after a good Texas rain.
    And, YES they did.
    This tragedy does not change in any way my beliefs of following our US Constitution as written and enacted.
    There are thousands and thousands of loonies out there within our population of 300 MILLION.
    The shooter was a drug loving, sloven, no job, white male.
    So, feel the sorrow of this tragedy, but don’t let it for one second re-direct your efforts to get these liberal socialists out of our politics.
    We have a Nation to save in these next 2 years.
    Don’t let the Obama types lead you down a different path.

  7. SpyOnAmerica says:

    There is some complete crap coming out of the left today about this. Freedom Comes with Inherent Risks. But, Freedom Trumps All for it’s Inherent Benefits. It embodies the Spirit of God.

    So, here is my stab at really starting to stir the pot in America. Let’s get Biblical!

    Carolyn McCarthy Sides With Satan And Readies Her Evil Gun Control Bill Against God in the Battle of Armageddon.

  8. TexasFred says:

    Wow… That oughta stir a few pots… :?

  9. Steve Dennis says:

    It didn’t take long at all, did it? And the left is also going to use this to attempt to reinstate the fairness doctrine and justify net neutrality. The “fight” is just beginning!

  10. NativeSon says:

    We find these truths to be self-evident…Since it is ALREADY against the law to shoot people-it only makes sense that if you make it illegal to own a firearm-all crime will stop!
    Yeah right! Ony if you’re a LOONY, UNAMERICAN, LEFTIST MOONBAT!!!

    Fewer laws-more enforcement and punishment for the laws we need!

  11. SpyOnAmerica says:

    I put that on my blog

  12. cary says:

    Here’s the bottom line - if one or two of the loonies in the Old Pueblo had exercised their second amendment rights the shooter would not have gotten off more than three or four shots.

    And, the whole “jurisdiction” question would have been moot.

    The Pinal County sheriff is talking out his butt, asking for stronger gun laws. What, he wants his job to be harder?

  13. BobF says:

    He had stockpiles of ammunition? They consider 90 rounds a stockpile? Fortunately this dirtbag didn’t know how to reload his gun. If he had practiced, he would have been able to reload in microseconds, preventing those around him from subduing him.

    Being in Arizona, I’m surprised there weren’t some law abiding citizens in the crowd with CCW’s to return fire.

  14. cary says:

    In Arizona, a CCW is not required to carry concealed.

    Of course, if you don’t believe in the 2A, you’re not going to carry at all …

  15. TexasFred says:

    Bob, Arizona is, at least for now, GUN OWNERS HEAVEN, open carry, concealed carry, no permit required, all wonderful indeed…

    Here’s the sad part, it was a Democratic Congress member, her followers were all probably Dems too, maybe hard core libbers, and were apparently unarmed even though they didn’t NEED to be…

    Well, all except Jared Loughner that is…

  16. Stormwarning says:

    EXCUSE ME for my contrary point of view, but regardless of where anyone stands on the 2nd Amendment or gun control, Congresswoman McCarthy has a perfect right to her position (she lost herhusband on December 7, 1993 when Colin Ferguson randomly fired at unarmed passengers on the Long Island Rail Road. Her son Kevin was severely wounded). She became a Representative soon afterward. She’s entitled to her position and to refer to her as a wackjob is quite “uninformed.”

  17. TexasFred says:

    Well Storm, we ALL have opinions and stands that we like to take… Mine says she’s a left wing, gun grabbing NUT BAG…

  18. Stormwarning says:

    Fred, of course that it true. But my comment came before you wrote what you’ve just written. I don’t agree with Mrs. McCarthy’s stance. But her position in understandable given her family history. That’s all. Anyone can take the alternate position. Even those who have had relatives killed by a gunman who then justify their pro-gun position. As you know, until five yrs. ago I had never even held a gun, let alone own one (two). And I’ve gotten pretty proficient with it, although I have alot more to do and learn (I have alot of catching up to do).
