The Left is truly all about power and control. Liberty is a thing they have no use, for particularly if allows their political opponents to speak and argue against Leftism. So, you just knew, didn’t you, that they would use the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to try and implement laws aimed at restricting our liberty?
First take a gander at what Democrat Robert Brady is proposing
Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.
Brady told CNN that he wants federal lawmakers and officials to have the same protections against threat currently provided to the president. His call comes one day after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot, along with 19 other people, at a public event in Tucson. A suspect is currently in custody.
“The president is a federal official,” Brady told CNN in a telephone interview. “You can’t do it to him; you should not be able to do it to a congressman, senator or federal judge.”
The key language, of course being “perceived as” threatening or “inciting violence against”. We all well know that pretty much anytime anyone dares to oppose a Liberal bill, or politician, they are accused of inciting violence. Brady, and knee-jerk power mongers like him could use such a bill to punish, or threaten into silence any politicalm opposition.
The second tragedy pimp would be Carolyn McCarthy, an avid enemy of your right to own guns. It sure did not take her long to use events in Arizona to try and erase your right to self-defense.
“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.
Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) said he’s preparing to introduce a similar bill in the Senate.
“The only reason to have 33 bullets loaded in a handgun is to kill a lot of people very quickly,” Lautenberg said in a statement. “These high-capacity clips simply should not be on the market.“
Gun control activists said 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.
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 the ammunition allegedly used by the 22-year-old assailant.
Again, you can darned near see how elated these Democrats are to use this tragedy to further the control over us all.
