A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.
“It’s easier to get a gun than a Happy Meal in California.” — Bald-faced lie by delusional California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, apparently trying to one-up President Barack Obama’s equally false statement from the week before: “It’s easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
“A ban and complete eradication of assault rifles from the hands of everyday citizens is a reasonable reform.” — New York Daily News writer Shaun King, in an op-ed where he states that more gun control would not have stopped the attacks on police in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
“I feel like that would unnecessarily make my home a target.” — Intern for staunchly anti-gun Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., in an ironic reply when asked if he would place a yard sign in his yard stating, “This home is proudly gun-free!”
“The 5 million men and women of the NRA will fight without apology for your right to protect your life. Because we are on the cusp of losing this great American freedom, and with it, this great nation. The only way we save it is by electing Donald Trump the next president of the United States.” — NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox, addressing delegates at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Watch the speech here.
“This lawsuit is not only baseless, it is an insult to the millions of law-abiding gun owners in Texas and across this country.” — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, reacting to a lawsuit by University of Texas professors who want to block the state’s campus carry law, which takes effect Aug. 1.
