Jemma's Assault on Assault Weapons

Some former president's should be reminded just how moronic they really sound. He just continues circling the bowl. Begin with "I'm a Gun Guy" statement.
I have used weapons since I was big enough to carry one, and now own two handguns, four shotguns and three rifles, two with scopes. I use them carefully, for hunting game from our family woods and fields, and occasionally for hunting with my family and friends in other places. We cherish the right to own a gun and some of my hunting companions like to collect rare weapons. One of them is a superb craftsman who makes muzzle-loading rifles, one of which I displayed for four years in my private White House office.
Then add really moronic contention that assault weapons are for killing police.
But none of us wants to own an assault weapon, because we have no desire to kill policemen or go to a school or workplace to see how many victims we can accumulate before we are finally shot or take our own lives. That’s why the White House and Congress must not give up on trying to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, even if it may be politically difficult.
Right, no other reason to want those nasty black things. I got my flintlock and that should be good enough for anyone. Moron.

He goes into his MSM and Brady bunch stats on how "most people want gun control and bans on assault weapons" of course ignoring the rather lively sale of those same rifles at the moment. Nothing like stats to make you forget what is actually happening in the world. But being out of touch is Jemma's MO.

And to no great surprise the evil villain is the NRA.
Heavily influenced and supported by the firearms industry, N.R.A. leaders have misled many gullible people into believing that our weapons are going to be taken away from us, and that homeowners will be deprived of the right to protect ourselves and our families. The N.R.A. would be justified in its efforts if there was a real threat to our constitutional right to bear arms. But that is not the case.

Instead, the N.R.A. is defending criminals’ access to assault weapons and use of ammunition that can penetrate protective clothing worn by police officers on duty. In addition, while the N.R.A. seems to have reluctantly accepted current law restricting sales by licensed gun dealers to convicted felons, it claims that only “law-abiding people” obey such restrictions — and it opposes applying them to private gun dealers or those who sell all kinds of weapons from the back of a van or pickup truck at gun shows.

Nothing outrageous there. Nice to see just because you were a president ensures you get voice to the public no matter how much an idiot you are.
What are the results of this profligate ownership and use of guns designed to kill people?
Wow. What planet is this guy from? Guns were designed originally for killing people. Probably their first actual use. But I suppose Jemma knows better. Or is just senile.
Across our border, Mexican drug cartels are being armed with advanced weaponry imported from the United States — a reality only the N.R.A. seems to dispute.
Didn't we all know that that was going to show up. Shock of Shocks, he continues that foolishness that the liberals keep throwing out there which completely denies reality.

Funny how Jemma perpetually opens his mouth and proves himself an idiot.
