I barely controlled my giggles when I saw this report from my county.
The forum, titled “Preventing Another Newtown: A Conversation on Gun Violence in America,” will feature a panel of experts on gun policy, public safety and mental health issues.
The following guests are slated to attend: Omar Samaha with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, retired ATF Special Agent David Chipman, Josh Horwitz with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, City of Alexandria Police Chief Earl Cook, Jonathan Lowy of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and former counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee Karen Marangi.
Note the conspicuous absence of any actual gun rights organizations, but the plethora of gun grabbing assholes on this so-called “panel of experts.”
And the fact that it’s being hosted by the violent thug Jim Moran… now there’s irony of ironies! Of course, Moran likes to use his fists to pummel his victims, but still…
Jim Moran, who while serving as mayor of Alexandria was involved in numerous assaults, but was allowed to skate.
Jim Moran, whose wife called the police because he got physical with her.
Jim Moran, who choked out an 8 year old child, claiming the youngster was trying to carjack him.
Jim Moran, who got into a physical altercation on the floor of the House of Representatives.
Jim Moran, who upon learning of his crotchfruit’s altercation with his girlfriend that resulted in possible skull fractures, said his son and his battered girlfriend were “good kids” who “look forward to putting this embarrassing situation behind them.”
Embarrassing, eh? What should be embarrassing is that the younger Moran was caught just weeks earlier advising an undercover journalist how to commit election fraud. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the Moran household, apparently.
So what can gun rights advocates expect from this obviously biased forum?
Will Jim Moran hurl wild accusations at opponents like he did with Patrick Murray – a combat veteran with 24 years of active service including tours in Iraq and Kosovo – of never having performed any kind of public service?
Will he yell at opponents of gun control, like he screamed at a veteran during one of his townhalls to “SIT DOWN?”
Or will he just ignore legitimate questions from gun rights advocates, like he did with my buddy CV a few years back?
But mostly, I just wonder if anyone in the very blue county of Arlington sees the irony of having a thug with a history of violence and corruption host a forum on gun violence with the obvious intent of promoting citizen disarmament, based on the “panel of experts” that will be present at this circus.
I’d say we have a good case for carrying for the purposes of self-defense with this goon in the vicinity.
