Whenever the left demands a “national discussion” on anything the discussion always goes like this: The right gets bashed mercilessly while the left does all the discussing. If anyone calmly tries to use reason and logic they’re shouted down and called names. So why ever bother trying to “discuss” anything with these people if this is what we’re going to get?
During a press conference on gun control yesterday, Rep. Jim Himes D-Conn. blasted Texas Governor Rick Perry for vocally supporting Second Amendment rights for American citizens after the horrific school shooting in Connecticut.
“So the notion that more Americans quote unquote in the words of Governor Perry, ‘packing heat’ will make us safer is not founded in reality, in facts or in history,” Himes said bitterly during a press conference. “It is founded in the fantasy of testosterone laden individuals who have blood on their hands for articulating that idea.”
In response to the shootings, Perry signaled during a Tea Party meeting on Monday that teachers should have the right to carry a handgun – but only if they had a concealed carry license. Perry added that it should be up to school districts whether or not they were willing to have armed teachers in the classroom.
The hysterical, frothing left has no use for facts, statistics or logic. All they do is based on emotion as they shamelessly exploit a horrific incident for cheap political gain. They’re shameless.
If you need to cleanse the palate after that, Michelle Malkin appeared on Hannity Wednesday night to add some adult discussion.
By all means, let’s have a “discussion” about gun violence. We can start by talking about Chicago, America’s gun crime capital.
