Massachusetts Senate Race: Ed Markey’s Anti-Gun Malarky

Massachusetts Rep. Ed Markey has launched his campaign for the Democratic Senate primary with a new TV ad. Reflecting the temper of the times, risking the temper of Massachusetts gun owners, Markey’s come out swinging on gun control. huffingtonpost.com reckons Markey was taking a jab at his Democratic rival who “once voted against an assault weapons ban as a member of the Massachusetts State House.” In fact, both men are pro-civilian disarmament all day long. And the fact that the HuffPo doesn’t even mention their Republican rivals speaks volumes about the future of modern sporting rifles (and the rest) in the Bay State. Suffice it to say it’s a 10-round mag of not good. [h/t DM]

    its the dem primaries…the MA senate candidates will probably trip over themselves racing to grab the most guns. i would not even be surprised if somebody got them on hidden camera admitting they want to ban handguns.

        dont forget, Romney was from MA.

        in 2004:
        “Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts,” Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony with legislators, sportsmen’s groups and gun safety advocates. “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”

        most politicians in MA are for it until they are against it.

    Ed Markey wants guns off our streets…and so do I. Whenever I see a gun on the street, I pick it up off the ground, get it out of harm’s way, and take it somewhere safe. No gun should just be left on the street. I mean, come on people, show some humanity here.

    That guy’s as repulsive as repulsive gets. Tell me that pencil-neck doesn’t look like a child molester.

      He reminds me of Bishop from Aliens.

      That massive forehead & shock of white hair are attributes of an elder politician whose views ought to command the public’s respect.

      Right……

    It’s particularly sad to see this in Massachusetts, where the revolution began. That these people have the gall to celebrate “Patriot’s Day” – April 19, Battles of Lexington and Concord – really, really makes me sick. What they are trying to do to the citizens of today is exactly what the British were trying to do to them in 1775. April 19 should be a day of demonstrations and protests by the “Patriots” of today.

      If it comes from Mass-a-chew-sh_t, you can believe it is Kennedy inspired. Nothing good comes from there. Not even maple syrup, it always has the flavor of having been shot through someones nostrils.

    A real masshole if there ever was one.
