Gun Safety Advocates Force NRA Backed Democrat Out Of Congressional Race

Source: think progress

Illinois State Sen. Toi Hutchinson dropped her bid to fill the Congressional seat of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. on Sunday after her moderate views on gun safety made her a target of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s political action committee, Independence USA.

In what will be the first election since the shooting in Newton, Connecticut, the $2 million ad buy criticized Hutchison and another candidate for receiving an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA).“In the race for Congress, the big issue? Fighting gun violence. Debbie Halvorson and Toi Hutchinson both earned an A from the NRA, they can’t be trusted,” the ad began before endorsing former state Rep. Robin Kelly who supports background checks and banning assault weapons.

Guns have become a central issue in the primary, as Kelly attacked her opponents’ views on gun safety and “pointed out that Hutchinson received a 92 percent rating from the NRA” and does not support a statewide concealed carry ban. She also urged all candidates to “sign on to a five-point pledge to reduce gun violence: banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, closing the gun show loophole, supporting Illinois’ conceal carry ban, and refusing support from ‘organizations that oppose reasonable gun safety legislation.’”

Neither Hutchison nor Halvorson signed on to the document, though the former sought to bolster her credentials on gun safety by releasing a video in which she highlighted her support for “the assault weapons ban and the ban on high capacity magazines favored by Gov. Pat Quinn.”

“I am simply unwilling to risk playing a role going forward that could result in dividing our community at time a when we need unity more than ever,” Hutchinson said Sunday in a statement announcing her resignation.“In the wake of horrendous gun related crimes all across our country, I agree with Robin that we need to stand together to fight gun violence.”

"Folk",

Ignore what the No Integrity Name Stealer posts, she is just a sexually confused emotionally immature child that is looking for attention.

Momma's Black Girlfriend probably used her on pivot point for the Family Daisy Chain, and stunted the normal path of progression to Adulthood that the Non Defective follow.

Mommy and her Womyn always told this Defective that "Guns are attached to Men, and evil!"

Another post from Dumbo's prime source, the think progress blog. Dumbo likes to quote Jefferson out of context. Hey Dumbo, here are some Jefferson quotes for you to use in your anti-gun, anti-fiscal conservative rants:

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.

No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms.

So the thug Bloomberg, another of the 1% who thinks they know what's best for everybody and will bloody well buy it with taxpayers money, is now interfering with elections in other states? How nice. Bullying members of their own party to "shut up and do what we say" as opposed to encouraging free expression. No respect whatsoever for the constitution they swore to uphold.

Funny, you offer no evidence, just ignorant prattle as usual.

Those are well documented Jefferson quotes, just as you are a well documented buffoon.

This is not something Jefferson wrote, but rather comes from a passage he included in his "Legal Commonplace Book." The passage is from Cesare Beccaria's Essay on Crimes and Punishments...

Your inability to see the evidence, isn't lack of it and your lies are a character defect.

Tape Worm,

Lets try and stay on Today's Slewisms.
Please address this latest revelations of yours.....

As long as your asking your Psych to tell us what your "Honey Trap" is (Slewsie Quote), maybe you can ask her to explain why you keep Projecting about;

"Yep, you're broke and are soliciting gay sex.." (Slewsie Quote)

Broke?

Soliciting?

Gay Sex?

Well so what if I am?

(Broke) I pride myself that I can pay Little BOI's?

(Soliciting) Are their Little BOI's that I can play with cash in the places you hang out?

(Gay Sex) Do the Little BOI's that visit me know what sex is?
