“If I have a cold, I can’t buy Sudafed without ID, but I can walk into any gun shop and walk out with enough bullets to arm a small army without showing any kind of ID.” — Democratic New York Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon, discussing her proposal to limit ammunition purchases in the state to a only handful of bullets every 90 days.
“I will have a Democratic successor, and I will campaign very hard to make that happen.” — President Barack Obama, as quoted at Realclearpolitics.com, pledging his support for whichever anti-gun candidate wins the Democratic nomination.
“I have a budget amendment that I’m looking at to take away his executive protection unit. If he’s so afraid of guns, then I’m not going to surround him with armed state policemen.” — Republican Virginia State Sen. Bill Carrico speaking of Gov. Terry McAuliffe, whose attorney general recently rescinded Right-to-Carry reciprocity agreements with 25 states.
“This is what people need to understand. Now is not a good time to lay down your weapons—how will you protect yourself?” — Actor Kurt Russell in an interview with Event magazine.
