Corrupt Charlie Rangel Lying for the Socialist Cause? "Millions of kids' being shot down by assault rifles"

Not only is New York Representative Charlie Rangel a corrupt, tax-dodging racist … he is blind and stupid when he starts on gun control …

Rangel: ‘Millions of kids’ being shot down by assault rifles

New York Rep. Charlie Rangel appeared on MSNBC this morning to opine about the assault weapons ban getting dropped from the Senate gun-control bill.He made a few claims about politics as usual and the power money can have in this type of a case, but his most noteworthy comment was about his knowledge on crime statistics.

“I’m ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting,” the Democrat told MSNBC’s Chris Jansing.

We’re talking about millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons,” he continued. “Were talking about handguns easier in the inner cities, to get these guns in the inner cities, than to get computers. This is not just a political issue, it’s a moral issue…”

The FBI’s 2011 data says only 323 people were killed by rifles, compared to 728 people who were killed by hands, fists, feet etc. Handguns are much more likely to be used in a homicide with 6,220 killed nationwide in 2011.

One, millions of kids are not dying – and being shot down by assault rifles. In fact, you do not find fully automatic military weapons on the streets in any significant number. Most crimes are committed with handguns, rifles being unwieldy and almost impossible to conceal. The FBI’s numbers prove Rangel to be a hysterical, hyperbolic political ideologue.

Two, what Rangel is afraid to say is that the majority of gun-related crime is committed in the inner cities, governed by democrats and having strict gun control laws, by minority gangs, criminals and those who accept the culture of respect being more important than life.

Rangel refutes common sense NRA advertisement …

The real insult to the American people is to allow the Second Amendment to Constitution of the United States to be subverted for political purposes – to disarm law-abiding Americans and create a large pool of victims for criminals and crazies. And, in the inner cities, continue to jeopardize more people who will be unable to fight back against minority criminals.

Bottom line …

The Blacks would rather talk about gun control than the complete abdication of morality and sense of community by Black community activists who openly condone women with multiple children with multiple irresponsible fathers – a situation which preserves poverty.

  • Where is Rangel saying anything about the Black-on-Black crime decimating the Black community?
  • Where is Rangel demanding an audit of public funds that the democrats have diverted from their intended purpose?
  • Where is Rangel when it comes from designating minority gangs as domestic terrorists?

Time for Rangel to STFU or become part of the solution.
