Gun Tweet of the Day: Reid Calls Gun Control Bill “Anti-Gun”

courtesy twitter.com

 

Senator Ted Cruz catches Happy Harry Reid referring to his bill now on the Senate floor as “anti-gun legislation.” Slip of the tongue or just letting his mask slip? Hear it for yourself after the jump . . .

    I freaking love my (and RF and Dan’s as well, shortly) Senators. Texas rocks.

      So does Indiana.

        Well the democrap Donnelly is the first since I lived there to want to be one term senator.

    2. avatar Leo338 says:

      Just as long as you stay out of Houston. People are predicting Texas will be blue within 10 years. With idiots like this lady already being elected in that state, it isn’t too far behind Colorado.

      1. avatar Billy Wardlaw says:

        That’s what I keep telling people. All the more reason why we need more Liberty minded folks moving to the Lone Star.

      2. avatar Hank says:

        Not just Houston. Dallas, San Antonio, Austin (which hasn’t been truly red in my lifetime), El Paso, and the Rio Grande Valley all voted Blue. Twice.

      3. OH GOD. Sheila Jackson-Lee gives me nightmares. Everytime they put her on the news, I just cringe at the stupidness that comes out of her mouth.

      Not necessarily:

      There are times when Texas is more image than substance. More hat than cattle.

        As in drivers. I had an aunt in Mineola, and the drive back to California was a real eye opener, every time. Everyone driving at the speed limit in the slow lane. Get to New Mexico, suddenly both lanes occupied, as if by magic, and speeds up to 5 mph over the speed limit. Arizona, speeds up to 10 over, and people actually changing lanes fairly often. And then California, 15 over, and driving in any damned lane they wanted.

        For all the vaunted Texas independence and California lock-step thinking, the roads reversed it. The sheeple on Texas highways were astounding, except in cities where there were more lanes. But rural freeways, fugedaboutit, and they’ve got three different speed limits too.

        1. avatar Nobody says:

          Mineola? That’s an odd coincidence. I was in that area (and Quitman) and noticed that EVERY cop would drive right next to me and look. Out of state plates, and the seat belt fine is $200. That’s what they were looking for.
          Texas is a myth of freedom. Much more hat than cattle.

          How are polite motorists a bad thing?

    4. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      Kansas.

    5. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      Kansas ain’t any slouch.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        I don’t think we’re in Kansas, Toto.

  2. avatar Ed S says:

    Says it twice from his script. That’s no slip!

    1. avatar Billy Wardlaw says:

      Not twice. The first time he says “anti-gun legislation”, he then corrects himself later by saying “anti-gun VIOLENCE legislation”. Inattentive ears would probably assume he said the same thing the first time that he said the second time. Cruz does not strike me as inattentive.

  3. avatar ChrisH says:

    I’ll take honesty over their usual platitudes and lies any day!

  4. avatar APBTFan says:

    Same as Obama catching himself saying the Newtown dirtbag used a semi-auto rifle only to quickly “correct” himself and lie that it was fully automatic.

    They know exactly what they’re doing and they’re intentionally lying but sooner or later they slip as we’ve seen.

  5. avatar Mamba says:

    This had to be planned, some nefarious ulterior motive involved.
    If any truth “accidentally” escaped Reid’s lips his head would explode.

  6. avatar Randy Drescher says:

    1 anti gun, 1 anti gun violence. Isn’t a shotgun a gun? The pres loves shotguns & hunters & says he would not take away someones right to defend themselves. 2 faced lying pricks?….I didn’t think so, Randy

  7. avatar My Name Is Bob says:

    Wow, first honest thing I’ve heard a politician say!

    1. avatar Jay W. says:

      Yes – “Wow” it is! Must’ve felt like he was at home in the Senate and let down his guard and “Shazzam” – out slips the truth!

  8. avatar conard says:

    “Slip of the tongue or just letting his mask slip? Hear it for yourself after the jump . .”

    What mask?

  9. avatar Lance says:

    Got to love Sen Cruz tells is like it is. And some are full of it taxes wont be blue for a long time.

  10. avatar WR2A says:

    Delicious. Thank you, Senator Reid, for this early Christmas present. Oh, I mean, “Holiday Gift”. Sorry. I know you Dems get twitchy when Jesus is referenced.

  11. avatar mp504 says:

    Reid is NOT called “…Happy Harry…” here in NV. More often than not he is called “…STINKY PINKY…”! He DIDNOT walk to school from his home in Searchlight, and the only time he boxed was when he could fight a girl. Even then he got his ass beat!

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      And yet he’s been reelected how many times? I don’t get it.

      1. avatar CarlosT says:

        Pork. It’s good to have a long serving senator in your state.

  12. avatar Mediocrates says:

    Is it just me? Or did he say “anti-gun violence” legislation? I don’t like it when people make up shit.

    1. avatar Colt Magnum says:

      He said “anti-gun” first, then he said “anti-gun violence” second. I don’t trust him, either way.

      1. avatar mediocrates says:

        oh gotcha. I agree with you totally.

  13. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Know thy enemy.

  14. avatar Joke & Dagger says:

    Why do I suspect that the people who will hang the politicians one day will get to Harry Reid quickly?

  15. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    True story – Barney Frank is Harry Reid’s and Nancy Polosi’s love child.

  16. avatar John says:

    Everybodys all “Texas this Texas that yeehaw alamo”. For those of you complaining that it’s a blue state in disguise, come to Alabama. Down here, we’re red as the blod in my veins. We may have shall issue soon.

  17. avatar Eagle1USAF says:

    Probably the ONLY thing I support Ted Cruz on. Other than gun rights, Ted Cruz is a traitor to the US Consitution. Cruz recently granted Israel blanket immunity for warcrimes. For that, Texans and the country needs to ask him why he’s supporting criminals and stealing money from us to give Israel.

    Let’s remember, Cruz is NO Ron Paul.

    1. avatar Rocky L says:

      Sorry Eagle1 the fool who’s stealing our money to support criminals is the POTUS himself. He’s given and continues to give money to Egypt, Libya and the Muslim Brotherhood. (Who, by the way, are and will always be enemies of God and the U.S.). Anyone who stands against Israel and funds her enemies is an enemy of the U.S.

      1. avatar Eagle1USAF says:

        This is where you are gravely uninformed. The US Constitution gives Israel NO rights as a US entity/state. Yet, you and many americans (such as Rev. John Hagee) support them as such. Prime Minister Crook-in-Cheif Ben Nethanyau even stated, “Israel doesn’t need America’s help, we can take care of ourselves!!!”. Yet Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mitch McConnel are all in full favor of Obama’s policies towards Israel. We give Israel MORE money than ANY OTHER COUNTRY. Most US Vets will support me in denouncing any more aid for Israel. Let them eat their own crap that they stir up.

        As an American citizen, you can’t have it both ways. There’s the Constitution and then there’s nothing. As Ben Franklin stated, “A Republic, if you can keep it..”

  18. avatar EthanB says:

    Texan, born and raised. Yes, there is a stigma of Texas being the “wild west” much more so than Arizona is to some degree. Even though, we don’t have things like constitutional or open carry, in comparison it is fairly nice here.

    With respect to actual shooting, I think that a lot of the problems here is that over 95% of the land in Texas is privately owned. It’s not like you can find National Forest or some other wilderness places to practice, which does nothing to “normalize” guns. They end up being confined to shooting ranges and those luck few with rural property.

    More to the point, however, most of the carry laws on the books are based in reconstruction. RF wrote an article citing “Yankee Carpetbaggers,” however, in this case it may not be a bad thing. Like Billy Wardlaw (awesome avatar BTW) said we DO need more liberty minded people moving here. So while I have a geographical dislike of “Yankees” (i.e. which in Texas lingo is a lot more than you think), we need pro-gun, pro-liberty activists to prevent our freedoms from being eroded. So welcome, y’all.
