Panetta: People don´t ´need´
assault weapons

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Even if that were true, what the heck does "need" have to do with it? We don´t "need" 150 daily newspapers in the country either, or hundreds of TV channels, or thousands and thousands of books. And while we´re at it, do we really "need" so many protestant religious demoninations? There is no "need" to bear arms - only the right to do so, guaranteed by the Constitution. Reuters: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta joined the gun control debate on Thursday when he told troops at a military base in Italy that only soldiers needed armor-piercing bullets or assault weapons.

Just gotta love these high faluting idiots who do not understand the Constitution of the USA. I may not need one NOW, but I sure will NEED one soon the way these socialists are trying to make me a serf.

Dear Mr. Panetta, How many Americans are you willing to murder at the hand of federal "law" enforcement in order to implement your gun-control plan? How much blood are you willing to spill?

Mr. Panetta,

By what means would you confront an irresponsible tyranny? By what manner do you conclude that our bureaucrats and politicians possess more angelic mercies than those of the Weimar Republic?

I fear that we have completely failed in that so many of our citizenry are willing to surrender their rights for the promise of pottage.

I suppose the GOVERNMENT knows what we "NEED" and what we don´t "NEED" better than WE?

We don´t need 5 bathrooms, don´t need a $75,000 automobile, don´t need 4 vehicles, don´t need to eat steak, don´t need a 5000 square foot home, don´t need a three 55" televisions, home theater, a 50 acre farm, 30 pairs of shoes, a $100 hair cut...

The list goes on and on and these hypocrites don´t have a clue what they are saying, which shows just how stupid they are.
This is AMERICA and if I want to spend my money, the money I EARN, on whatever hobby or interest I have, that’s my business NOT YOURS. And if I want to buy 3000 rounds of ammo or another "assault" (whatever that is) rifle, who the hell are you to tell me I can´t??!!

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

I double checked just to make sure, but it´s like I thought - the word "need" does not appear in the Second Amendment.

There is no such thing as an assault weapon, Mr Panetta. It´s a made-up word to describe a rifle that´s scary looking to you and other dimbulbs.

What we don´t need is your idiotic opinion or a meddlesome government looking into what I need or not need, Thank You very much Sir.

The Second Amendment preserves the American citizenry´s right to arm itself in protection against a government gone bad. Panetta´s ignorant statement is akin to stating that the American colonists didn´t "need" flintlocks. They could protect themselves against burglars with their axes, and hunted game with bows and arrows. Of course, neither would have done them much good against the well trained and flintlock-equipped British soldiers, or their Prussian mercenaries.

No, "assault weapons" are indeed needed by 21st Century American citizens so that we might proetect ourselves against whatever modern military force might seek to enslave us. Fully automatic rifles would be even better, and once we have batted back the assault on semi-autos with effective magazine capacities we should launch our own effort to decriminalize them. LEGAL full-auto retrofits for everyone.

Again, a tyrant cannot launch a kristallnacht against shopkeepers who are ARMED.

Many of the people who own and drive them don´t need big four-wheel drive trucks either. Your neighbor doesn´t need that bass-boat in his drive... in fact, none of the people who have big yachts or boats of any kind or size don´t NEED them. We, as human beings don´t need MOST of what we have. I guess we should all live like Zero´s brother in Africa - just enough to eat, mud hut and all.

NEED has very little to do with modern human existence. Does Zero and the First Mizz NEED to go on expensive vacations?

My 30-30 lever action can act pretty well as an assault weapon; just ask some Native Americans in the late 1800´s.

But, then again, so can a cross-bow.

It is not the business of elected and appointed representatives of the American people to tell them, the American people, what they do or do not need. Mr. Panetta has overstepped himself. He does not remember who he is working for, who pays his salary, and to whom he is ultimately accountable. If this is a representative sample of how Mr. Panetta thinks about his duties and delegated powers, it would be more accurate to say that Americans do not need Mr. Panetta than for him to proclaim that Americans do not need a certain type of firearm or, indeed, anything else. Who is Leon Panetta that he should be telling Americans what they do and do not need?

We also don´t need you or anyone else telling us what we need. We tell you what we need, not the other way around. We elected Emperor Zippy, God help us, and he appointed you. And by the way, is that what you told the defenders in Benghazi when they asked for assistance?

People don´t ´´need´´ Porshe´s or BMW´s, when a Ford Fiesta will get them where they are going just fine. And I guarantee that Porshe´s and BMW´s have killed many more people than my guns ever have (since they haven´t killed anyone).

I don´t ´´need´´ to sit here and express my opinions on any number of matters, but the 1st amendment guarnatees me the RIGHT to do so.

The 2nd amendment doesn´t have the word ´´need´´ in it anywhere. I don´t need a lot of things, but I have my guns for the reasons I have chosen to have my guns -- which is my RIGHT!!!

Former US president joins

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates.

The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
