Fast Eddie took to the airwaves to call all gun owners who own semi-automatic rifles “nuts.”Â If you own one of these firearms, you also hate police.Â The anchors of CNBC didn’t challenge him on anything at all, they agreed that there’s no reason at not to ban guns.
Ed Rendell says these guns have zero purpose because you wouldn’t use a black rifle in a duck blind.Â (Actually, Governor, if that is your new standard, no American could own anything other than a shotgun.)Â The “fact” that they have no purpose might come as a surprise to all of these people.
Eddie also seems to have missed out on the latest talking points – he’s about three months behind. The argument that NRA is worthless was only the popular meme after the election up until Inauguration Day. After that, the NRA suddenly became so powerful that even Dianne Feinstein is afraid to introduce a gun ban.
UPDATE: From the comments:
So the police have need of weapons whose only purpose is to kill and to maim? Has â€œTo kill and maimâ€ replaced â€œTo protect and serveâ€?
