Unless you’ve been exploring the depths of the Mariana Trench or gazing at the northern lights in Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland, you’re probably aware that many of our most outspoken paragons of virtue and supporters of feminist ideals have been busy groping unconscious entertainers and attending meetings in their skivvies. While various Democrat leaders have been furiously backing and filling, trying to save the jobs of their libertine colleagues, the dam seems about to break.
Just today, none other than San Fran Nan herself along with other Dems called for Michigan’s John Conyers to throw in the towel…or at least wrap one around his waist the next time he gathers his office staff.
Conyers is the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee…or he was until he stepped down on Monday in the face of a growing ethics investigation over payments he allegedly made to shut up some of his female
victims accusers. That means he wasn’t there yesterday when the Judiciary Committee debated and then passed a concealed carry reciprocity bill.
Will Conyers bow to the mounting pressure and quit? The odds seem to be increasingly tilting that way. What will that mean for the never-ending fight to preserve and protect the right to keep and bear arms?
Reader and Michigander, John D. Dingell III, who knows a thing or two about politics in the mitten, writes:
Departure of Conyers from the House will be a mixed blessing for gun owners. Conyer’s replacement will probably be less anti gun, but more energetic. Might even be modestly pro gun. Preachers in Detroit are becoming pro gun and will dominate his replacement election.
Conyers has been addled for 15 years and a captive of his staff during this period of senescence. Conyers despises gun owners, but was lazy before he was addled. Didn’t do much and occupied a critical position on Judiciary. Couldn’t even properly intimidate witnesses, the most important function of a ranking member or chairman.
New ranking member will undoubtedly be more effective against us.
It won’t surprise you to learn that the new Judiciary ranking member — New York’s Jerrold Nadler, whose district covers parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn — is no friend of the RKBA. And so it goes.
