The jerk has his thumb on the trigger. He should not be allowed to own a gun.

srelan: So, he was really just "brandishing" a paperweight.


no, it was an assault paperweight.

IRQ12: LesserEvil: FTFA: "Some of my Republican colleagues came up to me today and said, 'I've heard of assault weapons, I had no idea what they're like,'" Morrissey said. "The clip I had in it was 30 rounds. Imagine a clip in three times this, imagine what you could do in a school."

Why stop there? Imagine what you could do in a baby nursery, or a kitten store!

Just imagine!

Now imagine if it had an m203 attached and the person holding it was in a tank, carried by a C130!


and imagine this was all happening in Times Square on New Year's Eve! You can just imagine the mayhem.

What are we gonna do about the nuclear reactor in Florida? It's like broken or leaking or something.


Maybe we should put some toilet water on it...

Etchy333: Etchy333: This is the Republicanest image I have ever seen!

And he's a Democrat, I should learn to read sometime. Seems like a useful skill, but I hear it's for losers.


Clearly you need to brush up. Reading is for homosexuals.

\There's that f** talk we talked about
\\Please don't ban me

Flashlight: The jerk has his thumb on the trigger. He should not be allowed to own a gun.


These are the people who want to steer the discussion around "gun safety".

"A lot of people don't know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law," Morrissey said on the floor, according to the Examiner, assuring other lawmakers that the gun was not loaded.

/epic facepalm. First of all, the murders committed in the USA with an AK, or a AR, or any other type of "assault" weapon are far and below the numbers killed by handguns and knives. You're just waving that AK around because it looks scary and ZOMG we should ban it, even though the facts don't support doing that. And yes, it would have been funny if he was waving it around like a retard, and it went full auto..spraying a full magazine into the ceiling. Would have been like watching a hamas vid.

more importantly, will this issue FINALLY grab enough traction to distract everyone from the debt ceiling crisis and how we can manage to reduce the debt?

Well, as long as he didn't use it, I don't have a problem with it. What's the big deal with carrying inanimate objects into places?

At what point does holding become brandishing?

Use it to shoot the psycho who thinks it's a good day for killing kids / babies / kittens?
 
2013-01-18 03:28:46 PM  
A subcommittee voted Thursday night to kill a bill Morrissey introduced that would have tightened gun controls in the state, The Roanoke Times reported.

Now he knows how Joan of Arc felt.

/did he mention that he cried?
 
2013-01-18 03:29:14 PM  
That Stock is a result of the first ban that did nothing.
That man has no idea how to brandish properly.
Thumb on the trigger?

No, these are "assault" weapons. ASSAULT!! They cannot be used for anything other than indiscriminate murder!

God dammet Joe..

sit down


He does keep things interesting around here though.

And yes, our lawmakers are allowed to pack in the statehouse. there's a fun story about one of them fiddling around with his hand gun when it discharged. shot a hole through the door and the wall across the way barely missing a couple of aides walking by.

DubtodaIll: Well, as long as he didn't use it, I don't have a problem with it. What's the big deal with carrying inanimate objects into places?


By assuring people the gun was unloaded, he failed one of the first rules of gun ownership.
 
2013-01-18 03:30:44 PM  
Looks like a Vepr, very nice. On my to-buy list right after an AR...

Just a guess, but "treat every gun like it's loaded?"
 
2013-01-18 03:34:27 PM  

Chagrin: Cheese eating surrender monkey: What the shiat is that stock?

It has a thumbhole. That makes it an assault weapon.


Wrong way around sparky, the lack of a true pistol grip made it NOT one under the original mid 90's ban.

I thought it was in Georgia?


Georgia is in Florida, dumbass!

Idiotic, especially after the Gregory flap.

But I guess he made the news.

He should be sharing a jail cell with David Gregory!

Amirite?

Based on that picture he failed all the rules of gun ownership.
 
2013-01-18 03:37:47 PM  
Gun control laws that I don't think people would argue with:
• background checks
• safety certificate in associate with classification of weapon you are purchasing (similar to what is required when getting a hunting license)
 
2013-01-18 03:37:51 PM  
I think the NRA should come full circle on this and lobby a bill banning assault rifles.

Win/win.
 
2013-01-18 03:37:59 PM  

Uranus Is Huge!: At what point does holding become brandishing?


The instant you disagree with the person holding it.
 
2013-01-18 03:38:02 PM  
Ah, political grandstanding, that always works.

"...A subcommittee voted Thursday night to kill a bill Morrissey introduced..." or not.

Doesn't it also go without saying that anybody in the legislature is probably mentally incompetent to be carrying any sort of firearm?

Sounds good to me.

Question though.

How does the current law handle hand me downs?
 
2013-01-18 03:40:11 PM  
Morrissey got the gun from"some people I know who happen to be gun enthusiasts"

LMAO. Yeah, I got this from some people I know...

One of the VA State Legislators happens to frequent my LGS. Guys has more AR's than the store has sold this year.

Proud we are a 12/100 on the Brady Scale. I hear Marsha likes bad boys.

Yep. People die every year from "unloaded" guns.

Straw purchasers. Harsh sentencing of people who knowingly transfer a firearm to a known prohibited person. And if the weapon transferred to the known prohibited person is used in a murder, Felony Murder charge for the straw purchaser.

No, this was dumb but not illegal, and also speech made by elected officials on the floor of legislative bodies typically enjoys much greater protection than speech given by some guy in front of a camera so the "I was just making a point" thing might carry a little water.

You're not so good at reading, are you?


I honestly don't understand the point of the story at all. There's a thread a little lower about a guy that took his AR to JCPenny. Both of these actions are apparently perfectly legal dumb things to do.

And I didn't even have to use my AK, Today was a good day.
FTFM
 
2013-01-18 03:46:28 PM  
BTW, that looks like an AK sold DURING the Clinton ban, as it has a thumb hole stock. Can anyone confirm? That would make this really funny.
 
2013-01-18 03:47:24 PM  
Dumbass.
