Liberal Lawmaker Owns A Gun AND Favors Gun Control. Impossible!

News

Big scoopy scoop over at The Blaze, Glenn Beck’s online home for his continuing total emotional and mental breakdown now cruising through its – let’s see, how old is Glenn Beck? – its 50th year. Seems Missouri state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed got herself arrested during a protest outside the Ferguson Police Department, because people just can’t let go of this Michael Brown shooting thing already, jeez. When the cops searched Nasheed, they found she was carrying a loaded 9mm pistol and extra ammo.


The efficacy of armed protestors yelling at Ferguson cops right now aside, Nasheed does possess a concealed carry permit, so everything was on the up and up, and she was only charged with Failure to Obey a Lawful Order of Police. But the spitting Gaboon vipers on the right smell hypocrisy because Nasheed, who is a Democrat, has sponsored several state bills and amendments the NRA has termed “anti-gun.” Which, okay. Newsflash, guys: the NRA would term forks “anti-gun” simply for not being guns.

The “anti-gun” measures Nasheed has pushed for include one that would have required owners to report within 72 hours any lost or stolen gun. Personally yr Wonkette thinks this is common sense. If your gun is stolen, used in a violent crime and then recovered, it would be in the owner’s best interest to have a record of the theft so the cops don’t think you are the one who used his precious penis enhancer to shoot those 16 Shriners down at the lodge.

The NRA opposed the measure because it would have created a “de facto gun registry.” Yes, it sort of would…after the friggin’ guns are no longer in the owner’s possession, you nimrods. So such a registry really wouldn’t be of much use to the UN shock troops when they occupy Missouri and hunt down all the gun owners, would it?

Nasheed also pushed a bill that would have held parents responsible if they own a gun and their precious snowflake children get hold of it and use it to slaughter their playmates in an orgy of bloodlust. The provisions in the bill included requirements for safely storing firearms in gun safes and charging the owners with a felony if their kids injure or kill anyone with the parent’s gun. The bill also required any parent who owns a gun to notify their kid’s school within a month of his enrollment that they keep a gun in the house. The Blaze, of course, only mentions that last one in its story because it sounds onerous. Tell your moody teenager’s public union-thug-run school that yes, Junior has access to firearms? This is not what our Founding Fathers intended!

Because the mouth-breathers of the right understand nuance about as well as they understand climate science or human reproduction, we feel we must once again point out to them that owning a gun is not incompatible with advocating for laws that would hold gun owners legally responsible for any mayhem someone might commit with that gun. We must also point out that the majority of gun owners know that, which is why they support gun control legislation, like background checks, though the NRA would have us think otherwise. A person can walk and chew gum at the same time. Well, we can. We’re less and less sure of those twits.

How do you do, fellow libs? We come together tonight to cheer and clap and cry and laugh, with our leader, Elizabeth Warren, and her fellow nice people Jay Inslee (the gold standard in climate action), Beto O'Rourke (excellent on being a good ally mostly), Cory Booker (best corny love hippie but also Wall Street, it's weird), Julian Castro (I don't know, people are super into him despite his creepy twinness and his too much pomade), Amy Klobuchar (bad bitch), Bill de Blasio ( ... ), John Delaney (???), and Tim Ryan and Tulsi Gabbard.

We know, the thing we said in our headline is a thing you can say every day, but it's really intense today, maybe because Donald Trump is now filled with fear of the inescapable reality that millions of Americans who have not read the Mueller Report are going to see Robert Mueller testify on live TV on July 17, and Donald Trump will be exposed. Maybe the Big Mac vending machine next to his golden toilet is on the fritz and he hasn't had gotten to eat a Big Mac on the poop chair since last night. Maybe he's just a weak and sad person, a collection of shithole cells God meant to throw in the garbage, but accidentally implanted in Mary Trump's turkey incubator. We imagine that'd lead to a pretty constant state of anxiety and ennui.

Whatever it is, he's totally fucked right now. We were going to write a nice post about Trump's batshit interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo, but we were busy, and by the time we got to it, he had performed so many batshit feats that we're just going to stick them all in this one post.

Let's start with the fight he's trying to wage with US soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who in a now-viral video stated that she has no fuckin' interest in going to the White House to meet that idiot. He got into a quarrel with her on Twitter ... or at least with a Twitter account that didn't belong to her. It's now been replaced, in order that the adult president may shit-tweet at the soccer superstar who hurt his feelings, but Splinter grabbed the original:

The rant continued:

Right. And Megan Rapinoe just said win or lose, she has no interest in meeting your crusty ass, because no decent American would consider that an honor.

Besides, she has already been to the White House to meet a legitimately elected president:

By the by, the owner of the incorrect Megan Rapinoe account saw Trump's whining and told him to grow a dick and set it on fire:

Ya burnt!

But as we said, it was a whole day of batshit from Trump, so let's continue.
