Moron of the Day

Does this guy even know what words are coming out of his mouth?

“It’s nuts for ordinary citizens to go out and buy assault weapons,” Gov. Ed Rendell, D-Pa., told CNBC. “Assault weapons are difficult to operate, they jam easily. If you want a gun to protect your home it’s the last thing you should have.”

Got that- they're difficult to use, they jam easily and are the last thing you should use to defend yourself or family with. So what does he then propose?

“These weapons have one purpose,” added Rendell. “…They’re to kill and to maim, and they shouldn’t be in the hands of anyone else but the police and the military.”

Um, okay. Can Gov. Rendell explain why he wants the police and military to be armed with weapons which are difficult to use, jam easily and are the last thing you'd want to use to defend yourself or others with? What, does he hate the police and the military or something?

Ostensibly, he proposed ban on scary looking firearms is to prevent them from being "easily accessible" to criminals right?

Apparently, the Good Governor has the best interests of criminals at heart...he's just trying to insure that they only have available easy to use, reliable firearms with which to ply their trade.

Very conscientious of hims, I think.
