Quote of the day—Charlie Rangel

If it is difficult to get a concealed weapon permit, I’m glad to hear that.

I wouldn’t want them to have it. Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun.

[The reporter pointed out the armed U.S. Capitol Police inside the building, just a few feet away from the congressman, Rangel laughed and responded:]

Well that’s a little different. I think we deserve — I think we need to be protected down here.

Charlie Rangel
Congressman (D-N.Y.)
June 21, 2016
Congressman Says His Constituents ‘Shouldn’t Have to Carry a Gun’ — However, Congress ‘Deserves’ and ‘Needs’ to Be Protected by Them
[I’ve seen this referenced several places but I think it was Paul Koning who sent me the first email.

It’s just amazing to me the level of hypocrisy some people are capable of. The hypocritical people I know in real life are like toddlers compared to world class athletes in their prime like Congressman Rangel.—Joe]

  1. All animals are equal, but some are more equal.

    Orwell was a true genius.

    • Nope. he’s pro complex tax law (i.e., full employment for IRS agents) Only his opponent need to fear the IRS.

  2. They believe they will be the people tallying the personal effects, and counting the heads in the boxcars.

    Of course the cat is out of the bag, and the anti-gun agenda is to ban all civilian firearms.

    Why? So they can do to us what they couldn’t if we were otherwise armed.

    Look at their ideology of George Soros? Where did his wealth come from?

  3. He proclaims the need to have you disarmed while in one the most heavily defended locations on the planet. The folks in that sit in stunt are not crybabies. They are tyrants.

  4. Mr. Rangel is cetainly special, just not in the way that he thinks.

  5. What a miserable prick.

    He probably won’t have the decency to stand trial before he descends from this ball of dirt into the pits of Hell where he’s bound for.

  6. I wonder what the likelihood of Capital Police intervention would have been if the reporter had just punched Rangel in the face a few times? Be funny if they continued to laugh and point.

  7. Poor Charlie hasn’t figured out yet that if his number comes up in the “Hundred Heads” campaign, his bodyguards standing around him will just be collateral damage. And the guards probably haven’t caught on to that either. Too bad, sooo sad…

    • As a long time Sci-fi fan I’ve noted that some of the most successful writers seem to have a particular dislike for the party of the left.

      In many of Heinlein’s novels it seems that after a popular revolt one of the pastimes is shooting Democrats. Occasionally he adds the lawyers too. I know it’s terrible of me, but when I see these corrupt and power-hungry bureaucrats and politicians like Rangel, Sharpton, Holder, et al, I have the vision of seeing them lined up against a wall. I’ll certainly go to hell for such thoughts. Pity.

      It also occurs to me that auctioning off one of 7 positions on the firing squads for some of these politicians might either help defray the cost of reconstruction or reduce the national debt. Bring your own rifle and ammo though.

  8. I wonder if he thinks he has more First Amendment rights than the rest of us too?

    Yeah, he probably does…

    “Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun.” Right, and it would be nice if we could outlaw crime. But since we can’t, and since the police have no obligation to protect us, we need to protect ourselves.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if a President could send two bills to Congress — one to eliminate gun-free zones and establish universal reciprocity for gun licenses, and the other to completely eliminate armed protection for Congresscritters — and then just say “Congress, please pick one”. (Yes, I know that’s not how it works… but if Rep. Rangel can fantasize, so can I.)

    • Yes. Because Curley Effect

      We see it all over the world. To the elites, power is more important than the well-being of their constituents. MUCH more important. But when people emigrate, they tend to bring the same self-destructive practices with them.

  9. Come get em Charlie.
    It was fine for me to carry in defense of my country, but is somehow immoral to carry in defense of my family & community.

    • Well, of course. He doesn’t want you to be armed unless you’re under his orders.
