Rahm Emanuel calls for
nationwide assault-weapons ban

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 2:59:00 PM

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called for a nationwide assault-weapons ban Monday in response to the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Emanuel made his remarks at a Chicago Police Department graduation ceremony Monday morning. “It’s time that we as a city have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a state have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a country have an assault weapons ban,” Emanuel said. “And I would hope the leadership in Congress now will have a vote of conscience. It is time to have that vote.”

Comments:
Rahm never let a crisis go to waste Emanuel lives up to his moniker. The insane leftists are coming out of the woodworks. His hypocrisy is just stunning as he presides over a city where blood runs in the streets every day.

Yeah, it worked so well last time we did it that we should do it again. And we should expand the gun free zones. But the last thing we need to do is figure out what couses these events (mentally ill wack jobs) and do something about them! Band ´em watch crime drop just like it dropped when Chciago banded all guns.

Rahm has some expertise on what constitutes mass death, it seems:

He is just mad the courts ruled the concealed carry weapons ban in his town was unconstitutional. Notice how his only option to the mass murders in his hometown is to send out fliers begging the bad boys and girls to stop. Most of them probably can´t read.
Now that people can legally protect themselves again in Illinois, it will just be a matter of time before the thugs meet up with the wrong end of a gun. Then we will hear nothing but noise about racial attacks.

Mark my words.

Rahm is the idiot that keeps on giving...

So, Rahm ol´ boy...how´re those Chicago ´gun rules´ working out for ya´? Given the Chi-town murder rate is higher than the death rate in Afghanistan - and you´ve already got the toughest gun laws in the country...seems you´d have a bit more sense...

What - this is Rahm here. More sense? What was I thinking?

Why is Emanuel for robbery, rape and murder of Chicago residents? Why won´t he join the NRA in using Project Exile in Chicago which would force harsher sentencing for gun crimes? You know why.

Has anyone (including the "Press") asked Mr. Mayor of Chicago why there are so many shootings and other crimes committed by armed criminals in his fair city? Don´t they have "strong gun control laws" in both Chicago and the rest of Illinois? And, oh by the way, how do the crime stats for Chicago compare with the rest of the state?

Rahm is such a jerk! He should hide away and not whisper a sound...Chicago has as of yesterday...400 MURDERS so far in 2012 due to shootings and hundreds wounded. For a city that bans guns (and the state) this means that LEGAL guns are not the problem, it´s the illigal guns that is causing the problem and what is Rahm doing about it??? This means that even if ALL LEGAL guns were destroyed, it leaves only the illigal guns and all law abiding citizens unprotected! Obviously the Mayor NOR the police can protect them and citizens are barred from doing so. How many articles have we seen coming out of Chicago pointing out all these dead people? 400 killed and hundreds wounded??? Where has the president been on this? How about the media??? Don´t these 400 killed count? Maybe because Rahm is an anti gun jerk liberal Democrat, Chicago is a non-gun city and their inability to do anything is embarrasing to the anti-gun groups. I guess the families of the 400 killed are not political enough to bring this up to the nation. Of course the MENTAL state issue is not being played up much, what will be said when the THREE states that allow mind altering drugs to be used legally and openly begin to have doped up killers taking a toll???

Might as well ban hockey sticks too. They weren´t used in the Newtown killings either.

The nut case broke about 41 laws. Making firearms illegal to own won´t solve the problem. It only means he would have broken 42.

10 sec sound bite pile of BS to be spoon fed to the stupid voter class by the bought and paid for media whores. But just my opinion.

Rahm, what is an assault weapon? If I went to a gun show or shop and said, "I want to buy an assault weapon" I would get laughed out of the building.

I have seen everything from detachable magazines, pistol grips, flash suppressors, bayonet mounts, adjustable/folding stocks, barrel shrouds, magazines larger than 10 rounds all use to describe "assault weapons" but in the end I have yet to figure out why any of those things make any gun any more dangerous or any less useful and/or necessary when using a gun for self defense. Many an everyday gun used to defend the lives of law abiding people have one or more of those characteristics.

All this talk of gun bans is a very bad thing.
The 2nd amendment is there as a last hedge against a tyrannical government.
In the last 30 years (arguably) our government has mutated from one that protects individual rights into one that limits them. They tax us out of prosperity, they rig elections, they violate every single article in the bill of rights routinely. Distrust of these despots is at an all time high for good reason. They have more in common with Soviet Russia than a free America.
If they keep pushing this, the cliff they force the entire nation off will make the fiscal one look like a step off a curb.

Better question for Rahm - why do you and your fellow Dems only care about the murders of white children and white teachers. I´d add the little symbol to indicate I´m being sarcastic but my statement isn´t completely sarcastic. The man has ignored and/or lied about the crime in his own city (he claims crime is down) but when the victims are white ... Just saying.

The definition of an assault weapon to a liberal is that it´s ´scary looking´. These are also the experts that call semi-autos ´automatics´.The media is no better. I saw the shooter´s AR-15 described as having a 30 round ´clip´.

You know where this ban on ´assault weapons´ is going, right? First they´ll get their ban on assault weapons, then they´ll start redefining what constitutes an assault weapon. Eventually anything that shoots a bullet will be considered an assault weapon because, after all, you can assault someone with just a pistol, right? This is what these bastages do.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
