Neal Barton's POV

Another gun hypocrite

When I saw this story Monday, I started to get mad and sweat from anger just like I did a month before.

We all know what happened to Congresswoman Gabby Gifford a while back. A deranged man shot her and others. Luckily, she didn't die.

Her husband, Mark Kelly, a former astronaut, has been testifying before Congress and getting on any TV news show he can speaking against so called assault rifles, high capacity magazines and the dangers of semi-auto guns.

I was so mad a month ago and have not watched Chris Wallace on the Fox talking-head Sunday show when Wallace developed a man crush on Kelly commending him on his work, then proceeding to rip Wayne LaPierre's head off right after the fact.

Well, imagine my disgust Monday where I read Captain Kelly went to an Arizona gun shop a few days ago and bought an AR-15 and a high capacity magazine to go along with it, as well as a 1911 semi-automatic pistol.

When finally confronted about it, the former astronaut said, "he was just showing how fast you can be okayed to buy a gun at a gun shop."

He now says he never picked up the AR-15 and never will. But, he was going to turn it in to the Tucson Police Department.

No word on if he is going to keep the 1911. If not, I'll buy it. I don't buy his hypocrisy.

And I hope Chris Wallace hears about this and I wonder will it affect his feelings toward his hero who so defiantly was speaking against guns.

Rules for thee, but not for me.


That's my point of view, what's yours?

Why haven't you complained or done a story about Rand Paul , Eric Cantor , the T-Party and the entire Republican Party trying to eliminate the pension plans of our fighting men and women? I havent seen any story come out of you about 51% of the military budget going to Private corporation contracts. Get rid of the contracts and the soldiers could get a huge pay raise and make solvent all pensions for the military. Charlie don't want the Military to have a Pension either...Real Patriot aren't you

He hasn't done a story on it because Rush Limbaugh hasn't spoken on that issue yet, and therefore he can't parrot him.

I can hear Charlie now at the next city council meeting, Mayor & councill members I am against our police, fire fighters and jailers getting a pension because my minimum wage employer is too sorry to give me a pension and I am not smart nor man enough to become a civil servent. It is just not fair, its like billy got a new bike and I didn't so Billy should have his taken away & I don't care if those civil servents paid 60% of what they receive and the city only pays in 40%.

I would like to know just who these people think they are. We are their bosses. We pay the taxes. We are the ones who get up each and every morning cold or hot and go to work to pay their enormous salaries that they vote for themselves. Tonight I heard that nit wit woman on Fox (Kirsten) I believe her name was and she didn't think women needed a gun for their own protection. Now another nit wit (Ashley Judd) has decided to run for Mitch McConnell's position. Sandra Flouke will be next.

Some sweet mysogny there, Katie.

Katie, do you work for Neal Barton? The answer is yes or you do not work at all because you are on this web site all day long 7 days a week 24 hours a day acording to the times on your post. My bet is that you do not work at all and receive your income on the first of every month when your lone star card is reloaded.

Good try Don, but Katie will never answer. She can't answer anything because Sean Hannity didn't tell her what to say.

What's it to you Don ? Are you now a cyber spy ? While you sit at home living-off the taxpayer with your overblown civil servant pension, you have little room to talk about those who live off welfare. In the eyes of private sector, you are on welfare; golden ticket variety.

And get this, I am going to get an increase in my pension too because most REAL Americans are thankful they have civil servants too protect them and their families. Don't hate those who protect you charlie because they receive a pension, If you want a pension you could become a civil servant too if you are MAN ENOUGH but somehow I doubt that you are.

Virtually all anti-gun advocates are hypocrites. It's very hard for them not to be. They want to ban guns but it's ok for their bodyguards and paid armed security, They just don't see a connection or feel they are special and thus need more protection.

Recently the NYT newspaper outed all CCW carriers in New York. Then they beefed up their security with more armed guards, just in case... That is just they way they think!
