WHO SAID THIS?
"Screw the Founding Fathers. They’ve been dead for 200 years. People like you . . . who spout this sort of crap are the reason we have gun control in this country."
a. Paul Helmke of the Brady Bunch.
b. Diane Feinstein, US Senator, California.
c. Thomas Dodd, US Senator, Connecticut and author of the Gun Control Act of 1968.
d. Wayne LaPierre, National Rifle Association "Laird of Fairfax."
e. LaPierre's lickspittle, Jacob Rieper, Legislative Director for the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.
If you guessed "e.," you win a kewpie doll. The rest of the quote directed at David Codrea from December, 2008:
"You are the problem, not NRA. Sitting around whining about how things are unconstitutional or quoting bullshit from the Founding Fathers accomplishes nothing. The Constitution is just a piece of paper. If you don’t have the desire and ability to elect people who respect it, your opinions mean nothing. There’s a reason GOA has negligible political influence and others like JPFO have zero. If you think the 2A is an individual right then explain in detail your plan for electing people who agree with you. If you think this Fincher guy has gotten shafted, then explain in detail your plan for electing judges who agree with you."
Mr. Rieper, it seems, is mad at David once again, here and here, this time over the purported ideological chastity of the new US Senator from New York. Poor baby. And we should pay attention to him, why, exactly?
