Rahm Emanuel calls for
nationwide assault-weapons ban

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 2:59:00 PM

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called for a nationwide assault-weapons ban Monday in response to the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Emanuel made his remarks at a Chicago Police Department graduation ceremony Monday morning. “It’s time that we as a city have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a state have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a country have an assault weapons ban,” Emanuel said. “And I would hope the leadership in Congress now will have a vote of conscience. It is time to have that vote.”

Comments:
Rahm never let a crisis go to waste Emanuel lives up to his moniker. The insane leftists are coming out of the woodworks. His hypocrisy is just stunning as he presides over a city where blood runs in the streets every day.

Yeah, it worked so well last time we did it that we should do it again. And we should expand the gun free zones. But the last thing we need to do is figure out what couses these events (mentally ill wack jobs) and do something about them! Band ´em watch crime drop just like it dropped when Chciago banded all guns.

Rahm has some expertise on what constitutes mass death, it seems:

He is just mad the courts ruled the concealed carry weapons ban in his town was unconstitutional. Notice how his only option to the mass murders in his hometown is to send out fliers begging the bad boys and girls to stop. Most of them probably can´t read.
Now that people can legally protect themselves again in Illinois, it will just be a matter of time before the thugs meet up with the wrong end of a gun. Then we will hear nothing but noise about racial attacks.

Mark my words.

Rahm is the idiot that keeps on giving...

So, Rahm ol´ boy...how´re those Chicago ´gun rules´ working out for ya´? Given the Chi-town murder rate is higher than the death rate in Afghanistan - and you´ve already got the toughest gun laws in the country...seems you´d have a bit more sense...

What - this is Rahm here. More sense? What was I thinking?

Why is Emanuel for robbery, rape and murder of Chicago residents? Why won´t he join the NRA in using Project Exile in Chicago which would force harsher sentencing for gun crimes? You know why.

Has anyone (including the "Press") asked Mr. Mayor of Chicago why there are so many shootings and other crimes committed by armed criminals in his fair city? Don´t they have "strong gun control laws" in both Chicago and the rest of Illinois? And, oh by the way, how do the crime stats for Chicago compare with the rest of the state?

Rahm is such a jerk! He should hide away and not whisper a sound...Chicago has as of yesterday...400 MURDERS so far in 2012 due to shootings and hundreds wounded. For a city that bans guns (and the state) this means that LEGAL guns are not the problem, it´s the illigal guns that is causing the problem and what is Rahm doing about it??? This means that even if ALL LEGAL guns were destroyed, it leaves only the illigal guns and all law abiding citizens unprotected! Obviously the Mayor NOR the police can protect them and citizens are barred from doing so. How many articles have we seen coming out of Chicago pointing out all these dead people? 400 killed and hundreds wounded??? Where has the president been on this? How about the media??? Don´t these 400 killed count? Maybe because Rahm is an anti gun jerk liberal Democrat, Chicago is a non-gun city and their inability to do anything is embarrasing to the anti-gun groups. I guess the families of the 400 killed are not political enough to bring this up to the nation. Of course the MENTAL state issue is not being played up much, what will be said when the THREE states that allow mind altering drugs to be used legally and openly begin to have doped up killers taking a toll???

Might as well ban hockey sticks too. They weren´t used in the Newtown killings either.

The nut case broke about 41 laws. Making firearms illegal to own won´t solve the problem. It only means he would have broken 42.

10 sec sound bite pile of BS to be spoon fed to the stupid voter class by the bought and paid for media whores. But just my opinion.

Rahm, what is an assault weapon? If I went to a gun show or shop and said, "I want to buy an assault weapon" I would get laughed out of the building.

I have seen everything from detachable magazines, pistol grips, flash suppressors, bayonet mounts, adjustable/folding stocks, barrel shrouds, magazines larger than 10 rounds all use to describe "assault weapons" but in the end I have yet to figure out why any of those things make any gun any more dangerous or any less useful and/or necessary when using a gun for self defense. Many an everyday gun used to defend the lives of law abiding people have one or more of those characteristics.

All this talk of gun bans is a very bad thing.
The 2nd amendment is there as a last hedge against a tyrannical government.
In the last 30 years (arguably) our government has mutated from one that protects individual rights into one that limits them. They tax us out of prosperity, they rig elections, they violate every single article in the bill of rights routinely. Distrust of these despots is at an all time high for good reason. They have more in common with Soviet Russia than a free America.
If they keep pushing this, the cliff they force the entire nation off will make the fiscal one look like a step off a curb.

Better question for Rahm - why do you and your fellow Dems only care about the murders of white children and white teachers. I´d add the little symbol to indicate I´m being sarcastic but my statement isn´t completely sarcastic. The man has ignored and/or lied about the crime in his own city (he claims crime is down) but when the victims are white ... Just saying.

The definition of an assault weapon to a liberal is that it´s ´scary looking´. These are also the experts that call semi-autos ´automatics´.The media is no better. I saw the shooter´s AR-15 described as having a 30 round ´clip´.

You know where this ban on ´assault weapons´ is going, right? First they´ll get their ban on assault weapons, then they´ll start redefining what constitutes an assault weapon. Eventually anything that shoots a bullet will be considered an assault weapon because, after all, you can assault someone with just a pistol, right? This is what these bastages do.

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier.

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Gun control groups working to push further gun control in California worry that state senator Leland Yee´s indictment on arms trafficking "may slow the legislature´s consideration of gun restrictions this year." According to AP California News, on March 27 organizers of more legislation said "the charges filed against...Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, could cloud the future of two of his gun control bills." As Breitbart News reported on March 26, Yee supported an "assault weapons" ban in California and a requirement for background checks for ammunition purchases.

Joining a long line of Democrats distancing themselves from Obamacare, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hinted that he didn´t support the President´s original plans for the healthcare take over and advised the President to take a different approach, though he shied from saying just what that meant.

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
