Stupid is more like it … When the FBI says a over 300 people are killed each year with rifles of all types, and the AR-15 is lumed in the all rifle category, you know you are just bloaing smoke out your nostrils.
According to FBI data, just 358 people — of all ages — were killed with “rifles” in 2010. In fact, more people were killed by hands and feet (745), knifes (1,704) and shotguns (373) than with rifles that same year. As Fox Nation points out, the total number of gun homicides in 2011 was 8,583, still exponentially lower than Rangel’s estimation of murders involving so-called “assault weapons” alone.
Attempting to show how huge of a mistake it was to drop the ban on so-called “assault weapons” from the Senate’s gun control bill, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) on MSNBC Thursday claimed “millions of kids” are dying at the hands of these weapons and Congress is failing to act.
Rangel blamed the National Rifle Association, politics and money for the gun ban’s failure.
“I’m ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting,” Rangel began. “But you know it’s really basically the absence of the voices of good people. I cannot believe that politicians are afraid of the NRA.”
He went on: “We’re talking about millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons, were talking about handguns easier in the inner cities, to get these guns in the inner cities, than to get computers. This is not just a political issue, it’s a moral issue and so when we condemn the NRA we should not ignore the fact that a lot of people that have taken moral positions have been solid on this big one.”
He couldn’t be talking about Obama-Holder’s Fast and Furious, where 100s have known to have died. No those were Mexican so that doesn’t count.
Of course no one ever said Rep Rangel was too smart, apparently that includes mathematics.
Here he is lying outside his caribean villa … The look of intelligence. To old to serve heh…
