SNL Seth Meyers, Crazy 2nd Amendment Americaon January 16, 2011 at 7:42 am
Had our Founding Fathers visited today today they would be most concerned about metal beasts on the highways, flying dragons in the skies and who the Hell let the slaves out! [Just a reminder that the Republican Congress struck that part out of their reading of the Constitution as the also struck out the conservative induced 18th Amendment] Only after their astonishment at big fast metal things would come their astonishment that Benedict Arnold could buy a semi-automatic weapon with a 30 round clip at the feed store.
What Mr Meyers fails to say in all this, is that Republicans will not allow any regulation to magazine size or carry laws.
Of course my advice was not taken in this. Which was… Every TV NEWS reporter from now on must ask every Republican in front of them - before any other questions are asked - "What are 30 round magazines for? OTHER than for a nutcake to take out as many people as he can without reloading?" If they cannot come up with one reason other than slippery slopisms, hammer the question home until they do. Civilly of course.
Had we sane civilized gun laws concerning just magazine size in this, instead of 20 down in 31 shots, there would have been 6 down in 10 shots. The math also projects 2 dead rather than 6 dead and perhaps bringing a 9 year old girl back to life. But that is off the table, because civilly speaking Republicans don’t give a rat’s ass.
