|God these people are idiots.|
While calling Alaska legislative action on guns "unconstitutional" and questions asked by a legislator "blogosphere rumor," Sen. Mark Begich staked out his own pro-gun credentials before a joint session of the Alaska Legislature.
Following his address, Rep. Lora Reinbold, R-Eagle River, questioned Begich about allegations that the federal government had a secret plan to control guns through ammunition purchases.
"Do you know of any excessive purchase of ammunition by the feds as a backdoor way to control the use of certain firearms?" she asked.
Another variation of that notion was recently repeated by former Gov. Sarah Palin, who suggested that there was stockpiling of bullets by the federal government in anticipation of civil unrest.
"That doesn't exist," Begich told Reinbold, and said it was part of the "blogosphere rumor mill."
"There's no stockpiling," he said.
But was THAT explanation good enough to convince Rep. Reinhold, that she was mistaken, and to stop getting her information from Right Wing blogs and morons like Sarah Palin. Apparently not quite.
After Begich's address to the Legislature, Reinbold approached Begich to further discuss the topic.
She later declined, through her staff, to to talk to a reporter about the origin of her questions.
Yeah well WE know the origin of her questions, don't we?
They are from the morons over in the Right Wing blogosphere and their symbolic queen Sarah Palin. who posted this on her Facebook page back in February:
If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.
Leave it to our crazy ass ex-half term Governor to take a half bakes conspiray theory and run with it.
And as if our poor beleaguered sole Democratic Senator had not yet had enough of dealing with simple minded conservative morons he also had to deal with this:
Begich also responded to a question by Reinbold about House Joint Resolution 7, which calls upon President Obama to rescind 23 executive orders he's issued on gun regulation by denouncing a different bill, House Bill 69, sponsored by Speaker Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, on the dais behind him.
Chenault's bill, co-sponsored by Reinbold, would allow the arrest by Alaska law enforcement officers of federal officials attempting to enforce some national gun control laws Alaska.
The bill was passed easily in the House of Representatives despite constitutionality concerns from the Legislature's own legal advisers, and without getting an opinion from the state's attorney general about its constitutionality or enforceability.
"You've got to make your statement, and that's OK," Begich said, but even if it becomes law it wouldn't mean anything.
"It's irrelevant, frankly, because it is not constitutional," he said.
You know there have been times that I have been a little lukewarm about Mark, but I have to tell you the man deserves the support of ALL rational thinking Alaskans who would like to have at least SOMEBODY representing them who is not an addle brained, oil drenched, 2nd Amendment masturbating, moron.
(Okay, okay I know Murkowski is not nearly as batshit crazy as the rest of the Republicans up here, but let's face it if she were REALLY smart she would jump parties. Oh God, wouldn't THAT be great?)
