Joe Scarborough Explodes
At Rep. Huelskamp’s Assertion
That Newtown Tragedy Is
Being ‘Politicized’

Things got heated this morning on Morning Joe, when Republican congressman from Kansas, Tim Huelskamp, was asked about his thoughts on gun control following their discussion about the fiscal cliff deal. While Huelskamp’s opposition to an assault weapons ban was a point of contention, it was his assertion that the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. not be used to further a “political agenda” that sent Joe Scarborough over the edge. Stricter legislation about assault weapons won’t solve the problem, the congressman said. “It’s a people problem.” “What has bothered me the most as a representative is how this has

Joe Scarborough needs to visit a mental health professional, as well as turn in his firearms. Morning Joke, indeed.

Obama and the democrats are using it to fund-raise.

But that´s not politicizing the tragedy, right?

It is a rare event when any person in Power, advocates the for 2nd Amendment. It is even more rare, to see an armed terrorist shooting up a police station, NRA meeting, gun shop or gun range.

I guess I´m confused. Was Joe not concerned about guns and his childrens´ safety prior to the shootings last week? I don´t recall him being on an assault weapon ban bandwagon before this. I could be wrong, but I don´t think so.
Kinda like this whole fiscal cliff thing going on right now and very little discussion of it during the election season. Now all of a sudden it´s the biggest threat known to man.
Get over yourself Joe.
Huelskamp for Speaker.

So what happens when placing a ban on assault weapons and related attachments fails to provide clear results in weapon used deaths in our country? Being from NJ, seems to me it´s the same philosophy that if we throw enough money into poor school districts we will improve their education achievement.....so 20 yrs. later we are still awaiting for the positive results!

Let´s cut to the heart of the matter. The government in the hands of statists poses a much more tangible threat to me, my property and my liberty than a nut with a semiautomatic weapon. I fear the tyranny of the mob. The second amendment exists to provide us with some degree of protection if we fail to preserve liberty via the ballot box.

Scarborough has to take a very liberal position on gun control if he wants to keep his job on MSNBC.

I agree that the law should be toughened up to keep the mentally ill from obtaining firearms that they could use to murder a large number of people. But individual people must also take responsibility for safeguarding the firearms that they legally own. It is gross irresponsibility when a person leaves their firearms insecure where a mentally ill person living in their household can take possession of them.

Also it is an overreaction by government to talk up banning and confiscating legally owned firearms from hundreds of millions of law abiding Americans who have not shot anyone, in an overreaching political maneuver because of the homicidal criminal actions of a few mentally ill people.

No, Joe, you´re even worse, you´re exploiting this for ratings and profit.

And to our repeat poster, who is weighing in on every one of these threads about how they are ´´embarrassed.´´ I sympathize with your take on mental health issues, but what specifically are you proposing? limits on magazines? Mandatory psychiatric screening to purchase a gun? A return to the ineffectual ´´assault weapons ban?´´ Which of Connecticut´s many gun laws failed us?

The folks who are politicizing this (from the left) are just dragging out the same tired talking points that have been argued about and discredited (for the most part). They ARE using this to further their own political agenda.

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
