Dirtbag Dan Short Whines About Carney’s “Knee-Jerk” Reaction

Filed in National by on February 23, 2018

House Minority Leader Dan Short is the latest Delaware politician to pretend to care about the public while in thrall to the gun lobby. He criticized Gov. Carney’s call for banning assault weapons.

“We had a federal ban on assault weapons between 1994 and 2004. It proved ineffective.”

No it didn’t, shitbag. Look it up.

Short said defining what an assault weapon is remains too difficult to do anything, then proceeds to define assault weapons as “rifles capable of fully automatic fire,” while noting those are already illegal for most Americans to own.

“What the governor apparently means by the provocative term is any semi-automatic rifle resembling a military weapon, like the AR-15 rifle used in the recent Florida tragedy. According to the National Rifle Association, Americans own about five million AR-15s alone. Millions more semi-automatic rifles of other types are also owned by Americans – the vast majority of which will never be employed in any crime. Such rifles are ubiquitous.”

Uh, Danny Boy, “ubiquitous” means “everywhere.” Clearly, 5 million rifles — most owned by people who want to overthrow the government and have six months’ worth of canned goods in their basements — cannot be everywhere.

They are scared, and with good reason.

    Wow. They are scared. They gave that job of replying to Carney to Dan Short. Perhaps the only DEGOPer not on your list for taking the NRA’s blood money.

    Just checked US 2017 population estimates — 5 million AR-15s would be enough to supply every man, woman and child in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming, with another 25 to 30 thousand stashed in the NRA’s gun lockers in case of population growth.
    Maybe our schools (and the nation as a whole) would be safer if we would relocate our well-armed militia into those states, where it could be charged with the protection of our reserves of corn, potatoes, mountain goats, bison and natural gas pipelines.

    And white supremacists. Don’t forget them. They’ll have to defend against each other.

  4. Even in a district like Dan Short’s, the notion of AR-15s and schools is not something looked upon favorably by the masses. Who’s up for a run?

    Western Sussex…Short was Mayor of Seaford, but I doubt he still has campaign legs. It would be great for someone to at least take a look at it.

    If the current group of legislators were around in the 70s, cigarettes with cartoon character mascots would still be ubiquitous.

    ..as would DDT and thalidomide.
