Getting rid of “Second Amendment Solutions” without getting rid of assault rifles.

In the aftermath of the attempted assassination of AZ Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords  – even republicans are looking for ways to control firearms.  Dan Burton has suggested  that a plexi-glass dome separate  the public gallery from the Congressional members.  Republican Congressman Peter King wants to make it a federal offense to carry a weapon within 1000 feet of an elected official.

OK- so they have been working overtime making sure that they are protected from firearms.  I guess even the tea party has now decided that “second amendment solutions” are dangerous – particularly now that many of them have been elected to Congress.   Of course for the rest of us to benefit from most of these proposals – we merely have to be elected to Congress…No biggie…

You don’t need me as a wordsmith for this issue – the comics have taken  on this one and do it far better than I can.  From SNL pointing out the vast differences between a Revolutionary War musket that our founding fathers were thinking about when the second amendment was added to the Constitution  to a semi-automatic assault weapons being sold today – to Steven Colbert’s observation that guns have to learn to stay out of the hands of crazy people.. they have covered the bases.

    We’ve got “loads” of guns hanging out back in the shed. I think they’s even a bazooka or two. Don’t laugh. They’s some tough squirrels in these mountains.” Cletis

    Where on earth do you live Cletis? I’m a NY liberal. About 30 minutes from Mid-town Manhattan. The type that conservatives love to hate… We are now getting a ton of coyotes in the area and I did get to take a stunning photo of an eagle in a tree a few days ago. But for the most part – we are fairly citified.
