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 Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy gestures, specifically his referral Russia as a regional earlier this week. Krauthammer blamed it on the inexperienced advisers the president has surrounded himself with in his second term and his own worldview. “This points to the fact that Obama has surrounded himself in this term, in this kind of second-term arrogance, with midgets,” Krauthammer said. “There is nobody in the high command who had the stature of Bob Gates, for example, or even a Hillary Clinton

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

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.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

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
