Maybe It’s the Voices in His Head

Maybe It’s the voices in our favorite Senator from New York’s head that tell him he needs ot take our guns:

Searching for the magic eight words, he turned for consolation and advice to his imaginary friends, Joe and Eileen Bailey. No, I’m not making this up. Sen. Schumer actually says this: “Though they are imaginary, I frequently talk to them. To me, they represent the hard-working and often-ignored families who are not tuned in to special-interest newsletters or editorial pages, but want a little something more from their government and their leaders.”

I can sympathize with Joe and Eileen here, because I want more from our leaders too, like, not being friggin nutcases who talk to voices in their heads. Maybe when Chuck Schumer votes to improve the mental health records in the NICS system, he should make sure he gets himself added too. You never know when Joe and Eileen will start telling him “the blood of the unbelievers cleanses the earth”.

Can You Feel the Love John?

NRA News is calling out Mayor Street over this interesting assertion:

Why so much violence?  According to Mayor Street, it’s Iraq’s fault.  Street told the Philadelphia Daily News, “I believe the fact that we are a country at war has something to do with the attitude of people in the streets.”  He went on to explain that the Iraq war is a “contributing factor” in the increase in gun violence and homicides.

The original article can be found here.   Now this is just getting ridiculous.  How far is John Street willing to go to deflect blame from his poor management of the city to other people?  It’s bad enough when he blames lawful gun owners for the violence in Philadelphia, but blaming the war in Iraq is a new, laughable low.

Get real John.  Thank God for term limits.  That’s all I have to say.
