At the risk of sounding racist....

is this "black math"? I mean, first we had the "million-man march" that yielded around 200,000....now this million dead kid story. I'm wondering what Al Sharpton and Jesse are going to exagerate on next...good grief!

...and all the time I thought

...and all the time I thought he was talking about the collateral fallout from continuous wars abroad.

Had Rangel been judging, maybe Miss SC

would have won. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj3iNxZ8Dww

Murders by Type of Weapon Used [FBI Statistics 2011]

"...the percentage of overall deaths that were the result of falling off things like rocks and ladders was 1 percent, or nearly three times the percentage of deaths that were gun-related [all guns]: 26,631 versus 8,583." http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/01/15/Percentag...

Child Mortality in U.S. [Nat'l Center for Health Statistics]
Given the number of children murdered/year by firearms (2,186) it would take almost A THOUSAND YEARS to reach two million ("millions"). But assault rifle murders are a miniscule amount of all murders; it would be more like TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS. How about we focus on the big numbers: congenital anomalies and childhood diseases.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

this is the same idiot that wants to bring back the draft

and require mandatory federal government service for all citizens.

And "millions" of kids? Are freaking kidding? How many more lies are we going to allow these treasonous pukes spout?

I don't wish ill on anyone, but if Charlie died tomorrow I wouldn't feel the least bit of sadness...fracking tyrant.

When Rangel speaks

Apparently the Congressman is one of those "low information....

....voters" I keep hearing about. I guess most of them are come to think of it, because even Pelosi said they had to pass Obamacare to see what was in it. If they are voting on bills they have not even read, that's a "low information voter."

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

Not a political but moral issue eh?

So this government is killing children overseas using "automatic military weapons" for moral reasons?

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

I'd love to see results from IQ tests of congress

I'd put hard earned FRNs on this guy scoring 72-74.

You are being generous.

You are being generous...I'm in.

LOL, yeah

I may have been a little high, I mean, aiming a little high.

and every year this idiot

and every year this idiot introduces a bill to bring back in the draft. So I guess it's ok for those millions of kids to get shot at.

I'm pretty sure it is a couple billion

Every day!

Millions of people have been killed by vehicles

Perhaps Rangel wants to ban them too.

"Things seemed so promising

"Things seemed so promising after Newtown."

I want to gag. Yes, I know in their hearts that the gun grabbers rejoiced over the Newtown massacre, as they hoped it would finally give them the causus belli they sought. But do they have to be so open about it?

Millions of kids being shot by automatic military weapons? Well, maybe if you count Iraq and Afghanistan, after we brought them war and anarchy. Also, like most gun grabbers, he seems unaware that the civilian AR-15s are semi-automatic, while the real military weapons (the ones the government has, including the DHS) are full auto.

What's new? Another ethics violation

Charlie Rangel once again violates the public trust.

This man is as FOS as his Depends

are.You get off MY lawn with those caterpillars nesting on your forehead.

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

That is the funniest thing I have read all day...I am dying here

"You get off MY lawn with those caterpillars nesting on your forehead"


Thanks for the night time laugh!


"We're talking about millions of kids dying being shot down by assault weapons, we're talking about handguns wiz easier in the inner cities to get these guns and to get computers..."

computers? what? Idk what he's talking about.

Computers kill trillions of

Computers kill trillions of inner city kids every year!

Maybe we aren't in debt after all

if these guys are doing the math. We may have been unwittingly running surpluses since 1982.

Damn, that's like one kid

per hair in those eyebrows.

Or are those mustaches gone wrong?

He must be talking about all the childeren being killed in the

Middle East and Africa with the US-NATO empire building illegal wars.
Such incredible hypocrisy. How many nations are in rubble and how many millions dead because of US-NATO aggression?

You beat me to it!

That was the first thing I thought when I saw the title.

that will destroy 900 trillion jobs in New York state alone!

Reinstate the Draft..

Ol' Charlie is confused for sure...he was thinking of all the 18 yr olds he wants to draft for all the future endless, senseless wars. Oh, BTW Charlie...full automatics are only available to the military.
Law abiding citizens can buy semi-automatics...geez...like talking to a wall.

All Rights Reserved, c 1791
RP 2012 and beyond....

Certain states permit their citizens to own fully automatic guns

...you just need to go through a lot of paperwork, pay federal fees, and acquire a special Class 3 Firearms License from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (aka, the ATF).

The procedures to legally purchase and own such a firearm differ from state to state, where some states have laws outlawing citizen ownership entirely.

Before the National Firearms Act of 1934 was passed, law-abiding American citizens didn't have any problems buying fully automatic weapons.
