Gun Control Bill Dies, Florida Legislature Reacts Accordingly

Ah, Florida Legislature.

No, Gays, you can't do that. No, Women, you can't do that. No, Poors, you can't have that.


And so it goes. 

When news broke that the gun control bill hit the proverbial brick wall and died Wednesday afternoon, your elected officials reacted like Yosemite Sam at a hoedown.

As the Miami Herald points out, when news spread about the bill's demise through the Legislature, the chamber broke into thunderous applause.

One Representative yelled out, "LET LIBERTY RING!"

And then proceeded to make gun sounds. With his mouth.

As this was going on, the Florida Legislature passed House Memorial 545, which basically tells the government to KEEP YER COTTIN PICKIN HANDS OFF MAH GUNZ even if a gun control bill does pass (which, as we have pointed out here on The Pulp over and over and over and over again, will never happen because Murica.)

The vote was an overwhelming 81-36, dividing party lines (of course).

According to Naked Politics, Rep. Neil Combee, (Gun Humpin' Party), who sponsored the bill, quoted a 19th Century edict which is probably the most GOPer thing ever done in the Florida Legislature (aside from making gun noises, of course). Because, of course a GOPer would quote something from two centuries ago:

"Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants."

The quote comes from Italian philosopher Cesare Beccaria, who condemned torture and the death penalty when it came to crime and punishment. But Combee, as all GOPers are wont to do, skimmed over that part of history to shoe-horn his bullshit agenda and somehow make a point about how people like the Newtown victims are now better off because gun control is dead.

So, the debate rages on and efforts for some kind of gun control legislature carries on.

But until then, Florida Legislature gonna Florida Legislature.

As a pistol carrying rifle shooting law-abiding American I must laugh at what your vermin editors write in this publication.  Gun ownership is embedded in the Bill of Rights something you Faggot's often hide behind would somebody pulls your hair or makes a comment about your face job.  You commie punks don't like guns, which must indicate you endured some trauma as your mother is ejected you from her vagina.  The founding fathers of our nation were brilliant man genius is in fact a far cry from the two brain cells your writers possess.  These man knew what it was like to live under a tyrant, King George.  These men knew what it was like to be slaves to die at the hands of a King.  These men knew what it was like to have their property confiscated, their women raped, and forced to work as slaves.  You girlie men think this could never happen in the United States.  Look at Cuba, look at Venezuela, look at North Korea, all totalitarian states in the 21st century.  Obama would love to become King and confiscate your savings and property, and would do so in a heartbeat if the new America was made of girlie man and Faggs, that carry dildos instead of firearms.  Fuck you ass holes.
