Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said Tuesday that the gun control debate doesn’t have anything to do with the families of the Newtown, Conn., shooting victims, and that the only reason those families think it does is because President Barack Obama told them it did. […]
“See, I think it’s so unfair of the administration to hurt these families, to make them think this has something to do with them when, in fact, it doesn’t,” Inhofe said.
By “these families,” Inhofe was referring to 11 family members of victims killed during the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary. Inhofe believes, and is willing to argue publicly to reporters, that efforts to prevent gun violence have nothing “to do with them.”
As the Huffington Post report added, when someone suggested the families of Newtown victims actually believe the gun debate pertains to them, Inhofe responded, “Well, that’s because they’ve been told that by the president.”
Right. Because they wouldn’t otherwise come to the conclusion that having FAMILY MEMBERS SHOT means they get to talk at the grown-ups’ table. They wouldn’t otherwise believe they had any right to stand next to a fucking bologna pony like you, who’s been smoking the government hog as a US GODDAMN SENATOR for years and forever, and speak about their experiences.
Of course, those experiences all just amount to have people close to them killed, which is not the same or as valid as, say, taking every inch of Wayne LaPierre’s .357 as deep as they possibly could, for the second amendment. So I can see where you’d get confused.
Let me clear it up for you: Here in the United States of Not Yours, anybody gets to have a say about anything and the way I know that’s true is that a bunch of people apparently said they want you to be a senator. If we were making people qualify for discussions of any kind, that would be the first sign we’d gone off the rails. So people whose children have been shot get to say things about guns, and that’s the deal you make, and can we please get somebody to read the Constitution to this dillhole? Like can we bring Richard Lugar out of retirement to do it? Nothing to DO WITH THEM? I mean are you kidding me?
