What civilian needs a pistol with a magazine that loads 33 bullets and allows you to kill that many people without even stopping to reload? No one but people with bad intent. Those clips were banned once; the president should call for reimposing the ban. The Republican Party will not go to the wall to defend extended clips. The problem is the Democratic Party, which overreached after the assassinations of the 1960s, talked about banning all handguns, and suffered a lasting political setback. Now Democrats are so spooked that they won’t even move forward on small and obvious things like this. The president should seize the moment and come out strong for a ban.
Here they’ve got a rule about PG language. Here I don’t, but it’s Sunday, so I should at least make an attempt at Christian forbearance, right? All I will ask is why in the fucking hell is an alleged conservative telling Obama (nonironicly) how to improve his SOTU?
Well, hey, two can play that game. Here’s my improvement to Noonan:
“Here are three things he can do in the speech that would be surprising, shrewd, centrist and good policy. He can come out for the manufacture of a “people’s car” that everyone could afford. He could advocate for construction of a national freeway system to drive it on. And he could take a firm stand against smoking.”
And what is it about Noonan women and guns? I dated a Noonan for awhile who was anti-gun. I fired her too.
