A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.
“It is easier to buy a gun than a book.” — President Barack Obama, who either does his shopping at different gun shops and bookstores than we do, or is telling yet another lie about firearms.
“It will lead to much higher grades for students because who wants to give a student a bad grade if they are afraid they’ll shoot at you?” — University of Texas economics professor Daniel Hamermesh in a ridiculous rant about the state’s new campus carry law that takes effect next year. Of course, his sordid prediction has not come true in other states with such laws.
“This has gone on too long, and it’s time the entire country stood up against the NRA.” — Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, bashing nearly 5 million law-abiding Americans at the first Democratic debate.
“The National (pause for emphasis) Rifle (pause for emphasis) Association.” — Presidential candidate Martin O’Malley at the first Democratic debate, when asked, “Which enemy that you made during your political career are you most proud of?”
“Well, in addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the Iranians; probably the Republicans.” — Hillary Clinton, answering the same question.
“I think the Founding Fathers would agree with me.” — Actress Julianne Moore in People magazine, explaining her new partnership with Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group. Obviously, we respectfully disagree.
“Given the current escalation in the security situation, those with a licensed firearm who know what to do with it must go out. It’s an imperative.” — Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat on one solution to the recent increased terror attacks in Israel.
