Thursday Short Cuts

Gun grabbers: “There is a newfound imperative for this body to find a way to come together and take action, to try to do our part to stem this epidemic of gun violence and in particular this epidemic of mass shootings.” —Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) pushing legislation that would do nothing of the sort

“Few places on earth make it easier than the United States for a terrorist to buy assault weapons to mow down scores of people in a matter of minutes. The horrific massacre in Orlando last weekend is only the latest example. And all this is made vastly easier by a gun lobby that has blocked sensible safety measures at every turn, and by members of Congress who seem to pledge greater allegiance to the firearms industry than to their own constituencies. There is a word for their role in this form of terrorism: complicity.” —New York Times editorial board

“There is too much gun crime in the USA, and high-powered weaponry is too easy to get. That’s the fact. So let’s deal with it.” —Bill O'Reilly

“[S]ometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. This is one of those times. We need to say loud and clear: The Second Amendment must be repealed.” —David Cohen in Rolling Stone

And last: “I think I spotted a flaw in this ‘stop terrorists with gun control’ plan. What if the terrorist is willing to break gun laws?” —Frank Fleming
