This was on point:
IF ‘ASSAULT WEAPONS’ ARE BAD…WHY DOES DHS WANT TO BUY 7,000 OF THEM FOR ‘PERSONAL DEFENSE’?
Daily Caller | Jason Howerton
DC picked up the meme that NY State Senator Greg Ball laid down in a press release:
The Department of Homeland Security is the latest to find Governor Cuomo’s anti-Second Amendment agenda is at odds with reality. A report by Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com cites a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP) on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security and member components such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seeking over 7,000 AR-15’s and matching 30 round clips . .
This federal government rebuke of Cuomo comes just hours after news broke that two students from Rochester lives were evidently saved by an AR-15 as armed intruders entered their home. The very same personal defense weapon Cuomo plans to take out of law abiding gun owners hands protected two of New York’s best and brightest.
The gun nuts seem to think we oppose assault weapons because they don’t kill people fast enough. Odd. Factory slaughter is all they’re good for. Unless the simultaneous killing of game and rending of beef jerky is a good thing (mind the shards of hot bone and lead). As they say, any argumentative port in a storm.
This was Ball’s great ‘take that’ to the liberal world last week. Pardon the legacy media timing of the post, but I’ve spent most of my time occupied with other pursuits:
Lying around on the sofa.
And swallowing pills. You’re wondering how long it takes before a cold turns a reasonable person into a homicidal lunatic? 10 days. After that you’re measuring suitable targets for your rage. Good thing people were used to running away from me on sight.
