Rep. John Lewis: ´The British are not
coming. We don´t need all these guns´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:CarrotFarmer87, 12/19/2012 5:21:50 PM

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC, Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis invoked the civil rights movement to rally support for increased gun control legislation. “Well, now is the time to act,” Lewis said. “It’s not a time for a commission, or more studies. It is time for action. It reminded me of another period, 1968, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Robert Kennedy was assassinated. We can go back to 1963, when Medgar Evers was assassinated. We don’t need more weapons of mass destruction. Nothing saddened me more than last Friday.

Comments:
Someone really needs a history lesson. The guns are the reason they aren´t coming, for now...

King George wasn´t the only one with a tyrannical government.
Americans need to be vigilant with the current government.
The first and second amendments are under attack right now, Obamacare is UNconstitutional, no matter what John Roberts has to say.
We have a dysfunctional government.

So is John Lewis in favor of the police, in riot gear, forcibly disarming black gang members with their illegal guns? Is is this just against white people with legally owned guns?

The threat is from within. The Constitution was written to protect us from both foreign and domestic threats.

"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

Lewis (once again) makes a great case for term limits.

The colonies needed the guns to rid themselves of a tyrannical government who was imposing laws and taxes without the consent of the governed.

There´s a lesson there somewhere!

From now on I think I´ll respond to each and every single asinine opinion, comment, proposal, rant, and general utterance from the lunatic left with a short expletive instead of an intelligent and thoughtful dialog.
After all, that´s all it´s worth and they aren´t interested in hearing anything intelligent or engage in a real discussion in the first place.

John Lewis from GA - and I now have a gun to protect myself from all your ´kind´ that are robbing and thieving and killing in my county. The county turned minority, and with that, came all the crime and scum.

What used to be the top 2 highschools in the entire state, now don´t even rate. All because of minority infestation.

Sorry, but I grow more weary and tired of John Lewis´s kind spewing stuff all the time.

Get over it! Comments like these from Lewis make me despise them more.

Lewis meets the two requirements for office that his constituents look for.

1. He is a democrat
2. He´s black

Thats it ........

Intelligence is not required. Which defines at least half the democrat party

Actually, ´´Freedom Isn´t ´Free,´´ Rep. Lewis, but must always be protected & defended! -Remember your oath of office?! This is a country of laws based upon Constitutional principles for securing & maintaining Life and Liberty. The Founders in their Wisdom secured the Bill of Rights for each INDIVIDUAL American. Self defense is basic for each individual´s freedom. ...Look it up!

Since the Civil War ended in 1865, why does Lewis´s dem party, currently led by 0bama, use rhetoric more suited to at least 150 years ago than in the here-and-now twenty-first century?!! ...What´s up with THAT, Rep. Lewis? The dems & 0bama preach, ´´FORWARD,´´ but they seem stuck in history from ages past. Sometimes 0bama gets up to the ´30s and all that union rhetoric, but that is about as recent as he ever gets. mmm mmm mmm

When bad things happen the liberal response is always to tax, ban, or regulate. Their hope is that people will be too heartbroken to notice they´re more poor, less free, and increasingly burdened with a behemoth government that still can´t keep bad things from happening.

On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer unleashed a scathing critique of the Obama administration as more and more of the flaws of ObamaCare are brought to the forefront. Krauthammer explained that as we learn many promises of the laws promotion are being left unfulfilled, it is clear a “vast deception” was at play. “That is another truth emerging,” Krauthammer said. “I think what is happening here is not just a matter of what is affordable. It is a matter of a vast deception. The idea that you can keep your doctor, you keep your plan, was meant to say

Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come. Many more Americans are expected to have their health insurance policies canceled. “This is as bad a political disaster as I have ever seen,” Hume said.

Churchill had applauded the United States for stepping up as a world power in the middle of World War II.

*´barking at the staff´ Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite, but despite a 24-hour butler and other perks that come with the lodging, her entourage has inconvenienced ´pretty much everyone´ and made the hotel staff ´fed up,´ a well-placed hotel staffer has told MailOnline. [Snip] But the Obamas´ stay has already affected staff and guests at the hotel, with the Westin front-desk veteran alleging that Mrs. Obama´s mother Marian Robinson has been ´barking at the staff since she arrived.´ Government security forces from both China and the U.S. started Thursday to screen

In a question and answer session at Stanford Center at Peking University in Beijing, China, First Lady Michelle Obama said that sometimes one needs to do things she´s uncomfortable with. She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent. And one thing that you pointed out that I think it’s important to consider is not letting fear be your guide. Andthat’s oftentimes what holds many young people back from doing fabulous things. Let’s take my husband, for example. He hasdragged me kicking and screaming into things that I wanted parts of. (Laughter.) And a lot of it was

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

Theory: Maybe Black Toddlers Are Suspended

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

Vice President Biden told healthcare workers that "patience and empathy" are required to deal with frustrated ObamaCare enrollees and that the president demonstrated saint-like levels of both during the rollout. Speaking to a conference of community health centers in New York, Biden conceded that enrolling in ObamaCare could be "tedious," and early problems with HealthCare.gov worsened the problem. "We didn´t help you much at the front end here, man," Biden said, adding that he wanted to recommend President Obama "for sainthood" because he maintained his patience through the early technical problems with the website. "The president and I were as frustrated as anyone

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal
