A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.
“I can go out on the street today and buy all sorts of things on the black market. … I’m not suggesting this market will go away because of Question 1.” — Rick McCann, executive director of the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers and a proponent of Question 1, admitting the proposed law will only affect the law-abiding.
“There is no evidence that Question 1 would stop criminals from continuing to break the law to acquire a firearm. That’s what criminals do.” — Nevada Lt. Gov. Hutchison, urging a “No” vote on Question 1.
“The fewest Americans in 20 years favor making it illegal to manufacture, sell or possess semi-automatic guns known as assault rifles.” — Lead sentence of a new Gallup Poll report that found Hillary Clinton’s go-to gun control scheme is supported by only 36 percent of Americans.
“Do you know that gun control, early gun control, was really about keeping guns out of the hands of black people? We should be some of the most ardent supporters of the Second Amendment.” — Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, telling the truth about the racist roots of gun control at a recent Heritage Foundation forum.
“You don't have to have a conceal and carry [permit] to have a gun in your home; why wouldn't you want to protect yourself?” — Ashley Mundy, who used her handgun to save herself and her young son from a machete-wielding home intruder.
“With her disrespect for millions of Americans, I see in [Hillary Clinton] what I saw in [Hugo] Chavez 17 years ago—hatred and bad leadership.” — NRA commentator, Olympian and immigrant Gabby Franco in a “Hillary’s Enemies List” feature posted this week on A1F Daily.
