Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) & Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) vs. Common Sense

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) shared the podium with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to disgust (sic) gun control and yup, there’s that word again, “Common Sense” bandied about during their discussion.  Both senators agree that society is on the down spiral, morals-wise, but they think that background checks will ferret out hoodlums and the mentally ill from obtaining guns.  COMMON SENSE, senators?

  • It’s naive and irrational to think that a criminal is going to fill out background check information, wait for it, honestly.  Honestly, it’s the most stupid presumption going here, guys.
  • Likewise, the mentally ill, may have no COMMON SENSE and will lie, beg or borrow any dam weapon they can get their hands on (the recent stabbing at Lone Star College proves this).
  • It’s only honest, law-abiding citizens that, wait for it, obey laws.

With all due respect, senators.


Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) vs. Common Sense

Listen to Sen. Bill Nelson peppering his remarks today with the words “common sense” regarding the gun control bill that will be voted on tomorrow.  C-SPAN covering the floor speeches concerning the up-coming gun control vote.  Nelson prefaced his remarks with an obligatory “I love guns!” story relating his own pro-gun activities like duck hunting.  Yawn.  Then he went on (and on and on) about “common sense” – regarding background checks and restricting magazines to no more than 10 bullets. No more high-capacity magazines. Saying it’s “common sense” to ban Assault Weapons that the Military uses showing his ignorance on “assault weapons” which has been refuted by  weapons experts for the last…..millennium.  Yawn.  “Common sense” this and “common sense” that.  Enough already.  HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in upholding the gun laws already on the books?!  HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in differentiating between GUN CONTROL vs. CRIME PREVENTION.

CRIME PREVENTION only WORKS if you enforce EXISTING GUN LAWS.  Let’s get off the run-away meme GUN CONTROL and replace it with Common Sense, wait for it, CRIME PREVENTION tactics.  Better yet —

SELF-CONTROL not gun control.

What a novel thought.

Stalin would be proud of the leftists employment of semantic engineering to advance their cause.  Saul Alinsky is doing cartwheels over his little-fisted napoleons reframing the real issue – our law enforcement refusing to engage in CRIME PREVENTION.

Good fer you, Bruce Willis!

Nice to see one of my favorite actors, Bruce Willis, get his pat on, coming out publicly with his “..don’t infringe on Second Amendment..” comment.  PuC is a die hard ‘Die Hard’ fan and looks forward to seeing John McClane back in action.  It goes without saying the whole nation is shocked by the Newton, CT school shooting that took the lives of so many young children and school personnel and wish to express condolences to all touched by this tragedy.  And meaning no disrespect, I agree gun control is not the answer.  Willis put it succinctly when he said,

“It’s a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families,” he said. “I’m a father and it’s just a tragedy. But I don’t know how you legislate insanity. I don’t know what you do about it. I don’t even know how you begin to stop that.”

Willis is correct in saying you can’t legislate insanity, but you can surely curb its impact on society by getting rid of the political correctness chimera and accept the fact that there will always be those a little bit different than the rest of us and we should single them out like we did in the olden days.  Back then, we all knew about the ‘crazy aunt in the attic’ or the ‘strange kid’ on the block and we stayed alert for any signs of aberrant behavior to relay to the parents before things got out of hand.  We also had institutions for the psychotic among us.  Then someone stupid decided to close these institutions and open up community mental health centers that gave out band-aid lectures on how to pretend these people were just like the rest of us – only not so much.   Told us we couldn’t discern oddities nor ‘discriminate’ against those who hadthem.  Well, how did that work out for us?

Then, our nation’s Majestic Chumps took to stripping  our souls by forbidding our God’s sovereignty over us, took prayers out of schools and the pledge of allegiance became so passe and out-dated by our High Nannies.  If that wasn’t enough, it was decided by our families should be destroyed to further alienate us from one another.  I could go on, but you get the idea, I’m sure.
