Al Franken supports an assault weapons ban. He had to clarify this, recently, because some Minnesota paper actually made the mistake of implying that he was somehow not strong enough in his support for a ban that violates the rights of law abiding citizens to purchase a rifle he considers big, bad and scary.
“I’ve always supported the Second Amendment rights of Minnesotans to own firearms for collection, protection, and sport,” Franken said in the statement. “But I also think we need to find a balance between those rights and the safety of our children and our communities. I co-sponsored legislation to ban large clips like those used in so many mass shootings.”
Al Franken is a big, fat idiot.
Al Franken doesn’t know the difference between a clip and magazine, even though the difference is easily researched, and those who actually know the difference have clarified it publicly too often to mention.
Al Franken and his fellow gun-banning assmonkeys don’t understand that a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds does not make a mass shooting possible. It’s quite easy to empty a 10-round magazine, drop it, slap a new one in, and continue shooting.
High-speed accidents cause a lot more deaths than the use of high-capacity magazines, but Al Franken does not propose banning sports cars. (BUT WE HAVE SPEED LIMITS, AND NO ONE COMPLAINS ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS BEING VIOLATED!!! Well, we also have laws against murdering your fellow human beings. No one complains about that either.)
And such bans are ineffective. Plenty of these magazines are in circulation already. They’re easy to make, and the ban is easy to circumvent.
But Al Franken soiled his frilly, pink thong at the thought that a media outlet or the leftards who elected him might think he’s not as much of a hoplophobic imbecile as he needs to be, so he reaffirmed his commitment to infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens.
Al Franken obviously doesn’t comprehend the meaning of “criminal,” and he doesn’t respect the intent of the Second Amendment to the Constitution he swore to protect and defend.
