Ed Rendell on MSNBC: Boosting Gun Control is the 'Good Thing' About Sandy HookSubmitted by Bob-45 on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 04:45
[My response, posted at NewsBusters: In order to us make ourselves perfectly clear to the "gun control officialdom," I'll use words of no more than two syllables. The Supreme Court has spoken on "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms..." and you have spoken volumes with your contempt for the Constitution and the rule of law and your silence on "kill lists," "domestic spying" and "indefinite detention." We will no longer try to reason with you. If you make ANY attempt to confiscate our weapons, we will come for you and we will come armed."]

ED RENDELL: The good thing about Newtown is, it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side.
