Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ted Cruz, Joe Biden, Steve Berman, Matt Walsh, and more.

For the record: “Labor Day is indeed an anti-capitalism, anti-economic growth federal ‘holiday’ born out of the ashes of the late 19th century’s societally ruinous labor movement. It is a manifestly stupid socialist ‘holiday’ and conservatives are wholly justified to make fun of it.” —Josh Hammer

Village Idiots: “Can someone cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun?” —Alyssa Milano (“It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-given but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family. The right to self-defense is recognized repeatedly in the Bible, eg Exodus 22:2: ‘If a thief is caught breaking in at night & is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.’ (Note, though, verse 3 says it IS murder if during daylight (ie, not self-defense).” —Sen. Ted Cruz

Alpha Jackass: “After the last three years, the work of a just and righteous God cannot be considered credible evidence of His goodness unless He picks all of Mar-a-lago up by the roots, sails it across half of Florida and heaves it on top of Doral and its every last bedbug.” —producer David Simon

Braying Jackass: “Big shout out to all the civilian ‘good guys with guns’ who saved lives in Odessa. You know who you are. Thanks a million.” —Rep. Eric Swalwell

Demo-gogues: “The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it’s absolutely mindless.” —Joe Biden

Nonstarter: “Buy those weapons of war back. Mandate that. Not voluntarily. Let’s be really clear with our fellow Americans.” —Beto O'Rourke (“This is your daily reminder that Beto O’ Rourke once wrote a poem fantasizing about running children over with his car. And he wants to lecture Americans on violence?” —Charlie Kirk)

Non compos mentis: “Buying an AR-15 shouldn’t be easier than voting.” —David Hogg (“So you should be able to buy one without showing valid ID?” —The Resurgent’s Steve Berman)

And last… “Calling gun confiscation a ‘mandatory buy back’ is like calling armed robbery a ‘compelled donation.’” —Matt Walsh
