If you were near Alexandria City Virginia on Saturday, you would have seen an extra twinkling object in the sky over City Hall. That twinkle was just the ever-present Fairy of Stupidity spreading his stupid dust over Congressman Jim Moran And the dust is working very well on the Congressman, maybe too well.
As reported in the Free Beacon, Moran was speaking at an anti-gun rally organized by President Obama's Organizing for Action where he drew some whacko gun violence comparisons.
“I think what we’re dealing with here is in many ways a form of domestic terrorism,” Moran told the audience of roughly 120. “Really. I mean directly and indirectly, this is what is really terrorizing our country.”9/11? Domestic Terrorism? Don't you think you are going too far Rep Moran?
“Think about this,” said Moran, who has an F-minus rating from the National Rifle Association. “Think about the reaction we had to 9/11, which in so many ways was entirely appropriate because it was so shocking. But what is happening in our schools and streets and our communities is shocking as well.”
“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,” Gadahn said in the video. “You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?”No you can't--in fact you cannot purchase a fully automatic weapon almost anywhere in the country.
While machine guns are legal to own in the United States, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms heavily regulates them and no new machine guns have been legally manufactured in or imported to the country since 1986.
Moran also warned of people on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s terrorist watch list buying guns.
“In more than 1,000 cases, people who are on that terrorist watch list tried to buy firearms, and in 91 percent of the cases, the FBI was powerless to stop them,” Moran said.HOLY COW! Really? Yes really...but only in Moran's cranium which was disturbed by dust from the Stupid Fairy.
Moran has long history of saying false (and things)
Rep. Moran is not a big fan of the Military either, and has said that serving in the military is not public service.
“What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven’t been in office, haven’t served or performed in any kind of public service. My opponent is typical, frankly.”Moran is a train-wreck and continues to be an embarrassment to the office he holds, but because the district is heavily Democratic (Rated Democratic+15) it would take something of a miracle to oust him.
However, Moran’s opponent at the time was Col. Patrick Murray (US Army-Ret.), who served 24 years in uniform, was deployed to four different combat zones, including Baghdad, as part of the 2007 troop surge under Gen. David Petraeus, and was even shot at by foreign combatants. If that isn’t public service, I don’t know what is.
