Sleazy Democrat Congressman [score]Charlie Rangel[/score] (D-NY) is once again accidentally revealing just how slimy he and his fellow Democrats are. In the crush of coverage that the Democrat anti-Bill of Rights sit-in was getting, Rangel took some time to speak with the Daily Caller about banning guns, and what he had to say was quite revealing. While speaking with DC reporter Kerry Picket about the ongoing New York City gun permitting bribery scandal, Rangel let slip just how little he cares about the average American and their rights.
Picket explained to Rangel that unless you were bribing the police it was very hard to get a gun permit in New York. Rangel said that he was glad to hear how hard it was before adding, “We don’t need that many guns… but overall, if it is difficult to get a concealed weapon permit, I’m glad to hear that.”
When Picket pointed out that politicians, celebrities, and the wealthy in New York could easily get guns or protection by people with guns but that the average New Yorker was forced to be defenseless, Rangel said that the average person shouldn’t have access to guns. “Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun. You’re not gonna push me in that direction.”
Picket pressed him on this by noting that Rangel and his fellow Democrats were currently surrounded and protected by dozens of ARMED guards. Rangel just laughed as he finally got to the point – he and his fellow Democrats are just more important than the average American.
“Well that’s a little different,” Rangel chortled. “I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.”
