Incendiary Image of the Day: Meaningful Conversation Edition

Reader Elliotte in MD sends the following example of tax dollars in action (click to embiggen it) he found at “This is a picture of state senator Jamie Raskin (D-Montgomery County) playing chess on his laptop during the hearing. The hearing was split into 8 hours of testimony, 4 hours each for the pro and anti sides divided into alternating 1-hour segements. My guess is this occurred during one of the pro-gun hour-long slots.” It’s good to see the senator so actively engaged in the meaningful conversation about guns we’ve needed in this country for so long.

    I love that these clowns keep getting exposed like this but I’m sure this will lead to an eventual restriction that no one is allowed behind them.

      LOL. Seriously. That is probably a very good guess at the sort of rule that would be enacted to prevent this sort of thing from happening.

      I guess some people have made up their minds and wouldn’t be swayed by any testimony no matter what.

    Why would you listen when your mind is already made up?

    Hearings are just set dressing for the masses

    It’s a shame I have to drive through MD to see friends in Philly. My VA CC class warned of the draconian MD gun laws. How I miss TX and AZ. Someday….

  5. avatar Sammy says:

    Their minds are made up. We are just going through the charade of hearing “the voice of the people”. Quite honestly, I’m really thinking of moving to Texas.

    Sorry Dave S your post wasn’t up when I started typing. But it’s like they are past pretending to give a damn about us. They want complete and total control and A2 is the only thing in their way.

    The man obviously has a superior mind. He can listen to testimony, play chess, and do his income taxes, all at the same time.

    He has a JD from Harvard Law School. He doesn’t need to listen to little people, the serfs.

    He’s got his mind made up. Don’t confuse him with facts.
