What Fresh Hell Is This?

And Now A Word From The Conscience Of The GOP (A.K.A. Joe The Plumber)

In the event you're wondering how, on God's green Earth and by all that's holy and good, our Republican friends can continue to obstruct sensible gun control legislation, I believe I have an answer for you.

And it comes from Joe The Plumber - remember him?

In an open letter to some previous (mass) shooting victims, JTP wrote:
I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But:

As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.
Yea, remember that?

In that letter he went on:
[A]nyone calling for more restrictions on American’s rights need to back off and stop playing into the hands of the folks who merely capitalize on these horrific events for their own political ends.

They don’t care about your family or your dead children at all. They sound like they do, whereas I sound uncaring and like I say, harsh. Don’t be fooled – I care about your family and mine. The future of our very liberty lies in the balance of this fight.
So there it is: hidden behind all of the ersatz sincerity of the many "thoughts and prayers" tweets we've read recently from the GOP, is this one thought - your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights.

That's the root of the root and the bud of the bud of their resistance and that's why you Un-American libtards can't unnerstand! It's their constitutional patriotic duty, dammit! They're protecting us all!

It's just that in this setting, the price of "our very liberty" is simply this: In order to make sure that everyone has easy access to firearms, every now and then (and no one knows where or when), in order to protect our safety and liberty, a few schools/theatres/offices will have to be shot up by someone with easy access to lots and lots of guns and ammo. A few people here and there will have to die a bloody and gruesome death in order to guarantee America's Second Amendment rights.

Thanks be to Joe for pointing this out. They should be celebrating the blood on their hands as the price someone else paid for their freedom.

Your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights.

Thank Gaia, Ohio Government whistle blowers released confidential information on Joe the Plumber because he questioned Obama.
Shame on the Democrats fighting the Witchhunt of a Feminist civil rights hero Helen Jones-Kelley.

Democrats should run on Gun Control in 2018. "with 90% of Americans and 80% of gun owners on our side", we can't lose. Instead of dodging the Gun Control/Safety/Reform issue like Obama and Clinton. They would have a big enough majority (70 Senators) to impeach Trump.

Let us start by passing Federal Assault weapons ban like the NY Safe law and a Gun registration database that only applies to registered Democrats. Since we fully support Gun control/safety/reform, Democrats should have no problem with this.
To balance it out. pass a Voter ID law that applies only to Republicans.
