Among them was the disgraceful Illinois Senator Dick "Turban" Durbin (video via Breitbart.com), using the 9/11 terrorist attacks to equate to stricter gun control laws.
"I think that what happened in Newtown, Conn., may at least lead some to finally decide to sit down and have this conversation,” Durbin said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I really think we may have a chance because of this terrible tragedy. That’s what happened after 9/11. It can happen after Newtown, Conn., as well.”
Well, I don't remember the politicians getting together to ban airplanes after 9/11. But they sure made a power grab to get control of the screening of air passengers. Look how well the TSA has worked out. Law abiding passengers are treated like criminals just for wanting to fly on airplanes for business or pleasure.
Let me remind you how Turban Durbin sided with the perpetrators of evil, Islamic Terrorists, and, in the process, attacked the men and women of our military who took abuse from those terrorist scum, comparing our military to Nazis and Pol Pot.
When some members of Congress wanted to look into Islamic extremism after the Ft. Hood shooting and other attempted bombings by Muslim extremists, Turban Durbin wasn't interested. Instead he wanted to act as an advocate for the Muslim community, making them out to be victims.
All Turban Durbin, like all the other liberal gun-grabbers, is doing, is trying to take responsibility away from the individual and on an objectm which is a way of avoiding a part of human nature liberals don't want to admit exists....evil.
