A collection of quotes from this week's Tower of 2A Babble:
“Do you think the Founding Fathers would have sat here now and not changed the law to prohibit the use of machine guns with civilians on the streets?”—Former CNN host Piers Morgan, speaking at the Oxford Union earlier this week, we assume talking about semi-auto AR-15 rifles.
“There’s no place in this city for AK-47s. There’s no place in these cities for automatic weapons.”—Jesse Jackson at a Chicago rally, ironically mentioning firearms that are already illegal in the city.
“I’m a big supporter of the Second Amendment.”—Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, after vetoing a pro-Second Amendment bill that had passed the House 88-4 and the Senate 39-7.
"At the end of the day anyone who would amass mass numbers of ammunition, the intent has to be something that is not going to be helpful to our cities and to our communities."—Trenton, N.J., Mayor Eric Jackson, apparently referring to you, me and anybody else who might own a thousand rounds of ammo.
“Obama started this war on police intentionally. Right in line with his community agitating.”—Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, via Twitter, following the murder of two police officers in Mississippi.
“As concealed weapons permits are becoming more prevalent and easier to obtain, campus public safety officials need more authority to regulate them on campus grounds.”—Democrat California State Sen. Lois Wolk, sponsor of legislation that would prohibit those with a Right-to-Carry permit from having their firearm with them on any college campus or other school property in the state.
