Rep. Nadler: Two to Four
Self-Defense Shots is Enough

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Kerry Picket

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2013 9:58:19 PM

Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D - NY) applauded his state´s expansion of the current gun control laws on Tuesday telling Breitbart News, "I’m glad New York passed strong legislation. Would I have preferred stronger?—always—without knowing the details of what they did." The passage of the new gun control laws make the New York legislation the strictest in the nation: Bans possession of any high-capacity magazines regardless of when they were made or sold. Only clips able to hold up to seven rounds can be sold in the state. Clips able to hold seven to 10 rounds can be possessed,

Comments:
I am simply running out of superlatives to describe these disgusting jerks. I was very unhappy after November 6. It gets worse every day. I´m sure that idiot would feel the same way if his family was in danger and the police were only allowed four shots. s/o Stunning. Just stunning.

Nadler has so much adipose tissue to protect him it would take a 100 round drum clip to bring someone like him down.

He Neeyou Yawk! I think you´re ready for the Barney Fife Law: you´re only allowed ONE bullet. In cases of self defense, just wait until the perp gets really close and make that one shot count.

The rule of thumb is that the last shot is the one that wins a gun fight. The clips for my Springfield XD-40SW only hold 12. The top drawer next to our bed holds our pistol and 3 loaded clips. Mr Nadler, I´m a good shot at the range when the target is a sheet of paper, if forced to use my weapon to defend my family, I don´t know how steady my hands will be. That is a situation I never want to be in. When I´m forced into that situation, I want to give myself a chance at that last shot.

The gun debate is such a freak show. The dems have no intention of passing anything regarding gun control because they know it hurts them politically. So they use the republicans righteous indignation, outrage and opposition (which they know will prevail) against them at the same time whipping up their leftist base with their "attempt" at passing gun control. Kabuki. And so NOT serious. Jokers. Have they EVER done anything worthwhile? Just askin´...

Nadler must really think very little of his family if he had to defend their lives with just 3 shots...jerk, you keep firing till the target stops moving! Make all the laws you want...I rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6 ...

Detachable magazines is not the problem with these high profile killings. They should instead focus on better background checks. Psychiatrists should be allowed to notify authorities if their patient is not sane enough to own guns. And if they really wanted to lower the murder rate in the U.S., put organized crime out of business by making drugs legal. You can´t do that of course because the entire idea is unpopular. (People actually believe the War on Drugs is working.) So, they dick around with magazine size, as if that will solve anything. Meanwhile, the murder rate will continue to grow as the gangs become more and more powerful by selling contraband.

Georgia Mom Shoots Home Invader, Hiding With Her Children

She shot him FIVE TIMES.
He walked out of the house,
got in his car,
and drove off down the street.
His attorneys are no doubt,
at this very moment,
drooling on their briefs.

The awful reality is that
outside of Hollywoodland,
two to four shots is almost never enough!

I believe this huge, wobbly, Humpty Dumpty like person lost weight a year or two ago. Good for him. I still can´t stand him. He comes home after neighbors call about four shots heard coming from his house. He runs upstairs (he can do that now) and sees blood on the carpet, no perp in sight. Rushes to open the closet to find all but one of his family alive. If only he had loaded the gun with one more bullet.

I read elsewhere that some progressives want the gun laws to remain unchanged. They fear conservatives will gain power again someday & wthey´ll need to protect themselves.

Progressives are a minority... although they act like Kings in power, we out number them greatly.

I´m sure the Secret Service would step up to the plate and start carrying guns that only carried two bullets. Then we can get the caliber of those bullets down to a BB.

Yes, when the President shows some leadership on the issue I´ll begin to entertain the justifications of an idiot.

Jabba the Hut will still have his testosterone to fall back on when his "two to four" shots miss their mark. Women should not expect to fare as well.

Nadler is the perfect representative for the Democrat party: He´s a fat, sweating, pampered tub of lard with an insatiable appetite, and he´s out lecturing law abiding American citizens on what constitutes "enough."

I´m thinking I heard that single women are the largest new contingent of people applying for concealed carry permits.I guess mace and pepper spray aren´t cutting it.

The foolishness of these laws lies in the rarity of high profile shootings.Nobody would call for the grounding of aircraft if one crashed with kids aboard.
Bad things are simply going to happen in random selection in the way the world and nature works.

Liberals just love to pat themselves on the back for doing things that have no practical meaning. What they really want is the headline claiming they care.The left simultaneously cares about obese and starving kids at the same time.How about that for compassion when they never miss a meal themselves.

It´s actually been quite a while since Nadler got gastric bypass and it came with a free lobotomy.

Idiot. 2-4 is clearly "not enough" in many documented cases of police encounters with armed bad guys. Just do some research and see case after case where police fire and hit multiple times, sometimes as many as 17 hits before disabling someone who is able to return fire the entire time.

Several years ago I went through the NRA Personal Protection program. At the firing range the lady next to me was using a Lady Smith 38 caliber 5-shot revolver. The first firing station was six feet from the target, which was basically shaped as a human torso with a head. She missed the entire target with all 5 shots.

In a real life situation, do you think she would agree that 4 - 6 rounds would be enough ?

´Non-Stop´ Review: Liam Neeson
Thriller Hits New Left-Wing Low

**SPOILER ALERT** Most of the suspense and therefore enjoyment of Liam Neeson´s new action thriller "Non Stop" comes from trying to figure out who the villain is and why this person is doing what he or she is doing. If you read the rest of this article, it will spoil the entire movie for you. Period. You have been warned. There is no question that "Non-Stop" is a well-made, involving, not-terribly-dumb action-thriller that delivers plenty of suspense and endears Liam Neeson further into the heart of those of us who love well-made, involving, not-terribly-dumb action-thrillers.

45-state study: Obamacare offers less choice,

A new and comprehensive comparison of health insurance options offered by Obamacare versus private websites finds that President Obama´s program offers less choice and higher prices than promised by the White House and leading Democrats. Adding to the list of broken health care promises, the study from the National Center for Public Policy Research found that there were more and cheaper options available on websites outside the health insurance exchange in 2013 than on healthcare.gov and state Obamacare exchanges. The report, "Obamacare Exchanges: Less Choice, Higher Prices,” looked at options available for a 27-year-old single person and a 57-year-old couple in metropolitan

U.S. Supreme Court declines
German home-school case

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case about a German home-schooling family who is seeking asylum status in the United States. The court rejected the case Monday without comment. Devout Christians Uwe and Hannelore Romeike have been seeking asylum because German law does not permit home-schooling and requires children to attend state-approved schools. The Romeikes and their six children moved to Tennessee in 2008 to avoid hefty fines and possible jail time. The family initially was granted asylum by a U.S. immigration judge. That judgment was overturned by an immigration panel, which said the family was not persecuted and was not eligible

The Environmental Protection Agency on Monday set new limits on the amount of sulfur permitted in gasoline, capping a lobbying battle that pitted the oil and refining industries against automakers and public health groups. The EPA´s "Tier 3" gasoline rule ratchets down sulfur content to 10 parts per million from 30. The agency said it would bring $13 in health benefits for every dollar spent to comply with the standard, amounting to between $6.7 billion and $19 billion in annual health benefits by 2030. Those health benefits include reducing respiratory — such as asthma — and heart ailments linked to soot,

It will be her first visit to the Asian economic powerhouse.

Democrats are walking very gingerly around Attorney General Eric Holder’s call to give felons the right to vote once they are out of prison. Notwithstanding the fact that a large percentage of felons are African-American and more likely to vote for the Democrats, the Democratic incumbents seeking reelection are trying to avoid committing to Holder’s notion for fear they would be perceived as too liberal for the citizenry. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) has plans for legislation giving voting rights to felons immediately after their release. Sen.

The two countries are allies, but their leaders often differ on the details of key issues: Israel´s peace talks with the Palestinians, America´s nuclear talks with Iran, how to approach political turmoil in Egypt, what might be done to limit Syria´s horrible civil war, and a broader issue of whether the Middle

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
