Clinton Throws Helmke a Bone

Bill Clinton mentioned how nice it would be if we could just pass another Assault Weapons Ban:

Nobody wants to repeal the Second Amendment, and nobody wants to keep you out of the deer woods, but wouldn’t it be nice if your children didn’t have to worry about being mowed down by an assault weapon when they turn the corner?

Except statistically that’s not even a worry, compared to say, having to worry about your kid being killed by a drunk behind the wheel.  Yet we do not ban alcohol and cars.  Bill Clinton is still trying to sell people on the notion that the Second Amendment is about duck hunting, and speaks of a new communitarian vision of the 21st century.  There is a party that’s stuck in the 20th century, but it’s not the Republicans, they are mostly stuck on stupid.  Both political parties have work to do if they want to recover the approval of the American People.

    It’d be more likely your kid would die from inhaling noxious fumes than from an “assault weapon” (or any long gun for that matter)

    “Nobody wants to repeal the Second Amendment,”

    Start with a lie…
    “http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2007/04/18/second_amendment/”

    “and nobody wants to keep you out of the deer woods,”

    Add another one…
    “www.peta.org”

    “but wouldn’t it be nice if your children didn’t have to worry about being mowed down by an assault weapon when they turn the corner?”

    And finish with a complete non-sequitur…

    Clinton really didn’t learn a thing from his Impeachment hearings, did he?

  3. anon says:

    There’s a real growing split in this country between what many people believe and what many politicians think they believe.

    Whenever politicians become disconnected from reality, it always ends badly.

    Wtf, it deleted my name. Oh well, anon was me.

  5. Jim W says:

    …the second anon.

  6. John Hardin says:

    Actually, we _did_ ban alcohol at one time. It didn’t work out all that well.

  7. J T Bolt says:

    “Nobody wants to repeal the Second Amendment”

    Actually, nobody CAN repeal the Second Amendment/

  8. Linoge says:

    Not entirely true, J T Bolt.

  9. Sebastian says:

    I have to go with Linoge on that one, even though it’s semantics. You can repeal the Second Amendment, you just can’t repeal the right to keep and bear arms.

    Here’s what I would have said back to slick Willie if I could have:

    “Wouldn’t it have been nice if our wives and daughters didn’t have to worry about being groped, fondled, and sexually harassed by an impeached president and admitted perjurer when they were in your presence?”

  11. Broadsword says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice if children didn’t have to be worried about being mowed down before exiting the womb?

  12. Otto Maddox says:

    I totally understand why these sleazy politicians like Clinton are fearful of the general populace having guns….

  13. Christian says:

    Hey Bill, as long as you’re opposing ‘assault weapons,’ could you define them for us? Or are they like porn, you know them when you see them?

  14. Thomas Casey says:

    Like the saying about French royalty: “They have learned nothing and forgotten nothing”.

    Some people NEVER figure it out.

  15. jrzy says:

    Wouldn’t be nice if bill didn’t defile the Oval office by getting head from some tramp?

  16. Chuck B. says:

    Hey Christian:

    Don’t hold your breath while waiting for ol’ Slick Willie to define what “assault weapons” are. This is the same guy who tried to split hairs over what the definition of “is” is under oath and in front of a grand jury.

  17. Christian says:

    Ha! I’m not holding my breath for any ‘assault gun’ opponent to define what one is.

  18. BangStick says:

    For all those cheering on the the new AWB, I wonder if they even know how many people were convicted of violating the last AWB.

    Just how effective was it, really?

  19. Sebastian says:

    I know there were a few. The question is, how many of them were using the guns to further a criminal enterprise?

  20. Fen says:

    Sure. Clinton et al are the same people who insist sex education does NOT lead to increased sexual activity amoung teens, yet they won’t allow gun safety training in the classrooms… it would save lives, but they’re not really interested in that.

    Apply Fen’s Law: “They Left doesn’t really believe in the things they lecture us about”

    So it’s about something other than Bill Clinton’s “concern” over our daughters. More likely, he’s afraid he’ll be shot next time he sexually assaults one of our kids.

  21. Jason says:

    If I do recall we did a federal assault weapons ban for 10 years 1994 – 2004. With in those 10 years the Assault Weapons ban didn’t stop the North Hollywood bank robbery & Shootout in 1997, nor did it stop the carnage at Columbine High School in 1999.

    “I don’t think it is a secret to anybody in this room, that several members of the last congress who voted for that aren’t here tonight because they voted for it!” Bill Clinton 1994 Congressional Address

    History will repeat itself if the gun grabbers want it to!

  22. Cap'n Dan says:

    Not true, J.T. – The second amendment to the constitution can be eliminated, using the same process by which new amendments are added. See Article V –

    “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”

    I have no desire to see this happen, but the 2nd amendment could be removed if the people, through their elected representatives, make it so.
