One Trigger-Happy Democrat

   

Del Joe Morrissey

By Mr. Curmudgeon:

Democrat Joe Morissey rose to his feet in the Virginia House of Delegates to protest the tabling by that body’s Militia and Police subcommittee of his Obama-like gun-control measure. To emphasize his point, he hoisted an AK-47, single-handed, over his head, pointing the weapon’s muzzle at the ceiling – like a celebratory Taliban fighter at a traditional Afghan wedding. “… You can take this gun,” said Morrissey, “you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law.”

In response, Republican Delegate Todd Gilbert quickly rose to his feet and made a parliamentary point of order. He demanded that Morissey, obviously unfamiliar with handling weapons, remove his thumb from the rifle’s trigger.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey of 1,134 registered Virginia voters, 58% support a national ban on assault weapons, while 59% favor a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Delegate Gilbert, rightly, could care less. “Those who put the Second Amendment into the fabric of our nation understood that a government that is formed and instituted by free people trust its citizens with the right to defend themselves with arms,” said Gilbert.

Unalienable rights are not subject to a vote, or bans issued by elected representatives in statehouses or Congress – “… the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Just in passing, the Washington Examiner reported, “The AK-47 that Morrissey brought on the floor was borrowed from someone else … He told Capitol Police about his plan in advance. Members of the General Assembly, law enforcement personnel or anyone with a concealed weapon permit is allowed to bring a gun into the Capitol.”

In other words, Morrissey inadvertently backed up his unalienable right to free speech … with his borrowed gun.

    Blessed are those that can give without remembering, and take without forgetting.

    One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
    The florist was pleased and left the shop.

    When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for
    him at his door.

    Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill , the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
    The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you ' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

    Then a US Senator came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill , the barber again replied, 'I can not accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Senator was very happy and left the shop.

    The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there
    were a dozen Senators, The President and Joe Biden lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!

    I find it disappointing when our electorate is so Brain Dead that they cannot recognize a smelly diaper. They have been smelling it for so long, they cannot differentiate between fresh air and POOP. They do not make the effort to raise their nose above the Stench.
