Panetta: People don´t ´need´
assault weapons

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/17/2013 11:34:44 AM

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!!!

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second-year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four-day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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
