Have you ever watched a politician give a press conference about a subject that they had no understanding of? I’ve watched many, usually the politician is a Democrat, and he or she is generally trying to wax eloquent about guns, Middle America, or Christianity. Recently, one California State Senator added his name to that august list of ignoramuses.
California State Senator Kevin de Leon stood to argue about the evils of guns hoping to persuade people that we need new laws against guns. Instead, he proved that he had no idea what he is talking about when it comes to guns, and that he is likely trying to outlaw guns because that’s what Democrats do.
Give a listen to this hilariousness:
I totally get it.
He’s a State Senator in California and he’s a Democrat, so he has to be liberal. He has to stand up and be offended at things that aren’t offensive. He has to rail against imaginary problems and pretend to cry when he’s telling his life story. I really do get it.
But can’t he at least do some research into the topic before he gets up to speak about it in public?
Even a gun novice understands the difference between a round, a clip and a magazine. And why is he calling it a “ghost gun?” Could it be that it just sounds bad? Does he mean that the gun is unregistered? If he does – why doesn’t he just call it an “unregistered” gun? You know why. Because it doesn’t sound evil enough. If you were going to go out and try to demonize something or someone, would you call them by their boring old title? No, you’d come up with the meanest sounding thing you could and try and convince everyone to start calling it that.
Politicians do this all the time… they just don’t usually get caught. And if they get caught… it’s usually not this funny.
Anywho, de Leon’s press conference was to get some publicity for a bill he is pushing. His new bill would require everyone who owns a weapon without a serial number to apply for one with the Justice Department. For de Leon, unregistered weapons are a problem because “no one knows they exist until after a crime has been committed.” Sadly, I’m not certain criminals will come forward to register their currently unregistered weapons. He also wants to ban weapons made out of plastic.
Thanks for the laughs Senator de Leon, hopefully all of those criminals who plan to use their unregistered weapons for crimes will come get them registered first. And if you plan any more press conferences, please let us know in advance so that we can show up early to get a good seat at the show!
