The crazies feel they can only prove their manhood with a gun. The NRA backs them 100%

The crazies are the liberals with the "Gun Free Zone" signs. The majority of Virginians don't believe in these fantasies derived from liberal brainwashing. The NRA is millions of Americans who believe in freedom, and they are growing in number every day. Obama's theatrics using children in an attempt to win the hearts of the weak minded is an old game that is being seen for the liberal propaganda that it is.

The article states "Morrissey caused a spectacle on the floor of the House of Delegates Thursday, when he brought out an unloaded AK-47 from beneath his desk."

The Code of Va describes carrying a concealed weapon as " ยง 18.2-308.

A. If any person carries about his person, hidden from common observation,(i) any pistol, revolver, or other weapon designed or intended to propel a missile of any kind by action of an explosion of any combustible material; any weapon of like kind as those enumerated in this subsection, he shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

UNLESS MORRISSEY HOLDS A CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT. THE GUN UNDER HIS DESK WHICH WAS "ABOUT HIS PERSON" WAS CONCEALED.

LOOKS TO BE A HYPOCRITE VIOLATING STATE LAW

Ice Dogg: Do you consider our troops "crazies", they all carry weapons? It is often apparent that the people calling all of us "crazies" either havn't fired a weapon or are really unprepared to fire a weapon. The general population of gun owners aren't crazy, it is the jerk ( a real crazy) that breaks into your home and blows your damn head off or cuts it off with a knife while you wait for the Police to arrive (they can't be everywhere they need to be in a moments notice). You know very well that the law abiding gun owner is by no means a threat to you or any other person. Stop this endless stream of crap directed towards people who have done nothing and will never do anything to you with any type of weapon.

Here are some recent local events for consideration. Not that there's any reason to have protection:

1. Police say three men, carrying firearms and wearing hooded sweatshirts, entered an apartment and assaulted a woman who was alone inside.

2. An armed intruder kicked open the front door of a 51-year-old woman just before midnight last night in Waynesboro.
The victim barricaded herself inside her bathroom, but was shot in both arms when he fired through the door. The home invasion and shooting took place in a first-floor apartment at 306 North Delphine Avenue.

http://www.nbc29.com/story/20257892/home-inva...

3. Albemarle County police are searching for three men responsible for a violent home invasion.

According to police, three men, one of which was wielding a firearm, broke into a home in the 3000 block of Burnley Station Road in Barboursville around 9:00 p.m. Thursday. There were four people inside the house at the time.
Sgt. Darrell Byers with the Albemarle County Police Department said, "Three black males entered their residence wielding a firearm. The subjects came in demanding money and in that process one of the victims was injured."
Two of the victims are an elderly couple who have lived in the neighborhood for years. The couple was too upset to go on camera, but the 81-year-old male victim told us off camera that he was lying in his bed when he was hit in the head with a gun. He was able to wrestle one of the men to ground, but said it was too dark to see who any of the attackers were.
The only description police have is the suspects are three black males. The suspects were seen fleeing on foot.

Must be a lot of people that feel they fit the crazy definition by the remarks. But I am not calling all my citizens crazy. Just the ones who feel the need to murder their neighbor. And the NRA tells them they need to have weapons. The NRA has blood on its hands.

The NRA promotes the responsible use and ownerhip of firearms. To say they have blood on their hands is the same as saying Ford has blood on their hands whenever somebody drunk driving a Ford crashes and kills somebody. Why can't you people realize that a Ford nor a firearm kills anybody. It's the person handling them that kills. The person. Get it yet? Or do you need color pictures?

I thought it was against the law to have a firearm in a state building?

The shown weapon is not an AK-47. It is a semiautomatic copy of a real AK-47 that is capable of fully automatic fire.

If people don't know the difference they shouldn't be reporting on the topic or, for that matter, voting on weapon issues in Richmond.

Should we even bother telling these knaves that everything they want to accomplish could be achieved by doing what Wal-Mart and other dealers do--namely, putting a ten dollar steel trigger lock on each weapon? NO, let's let the idiots forge ahead with their media posturing to impress the largely ignorant public.

Were it not for gun nuts that knew how to use firearms you, Ice Dogg and others would now be speaking German, Japanese or Russian (had we lost the Cold War).

Hmm, maybe not a totally bad idea..........

I believe the other world leader who disarmed citizens and used children in his theatrics was in Germany. The children were known as "Hitler Youth".

WE are missing the difference in the words ON and ABOUT It's foolish to say an item under his desk was ON his person
