Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says he’s all-in on Obama’s gun control agenda
WASHINGTON – Mike Rawlings, mayor of Dallas and gun owner, is endorsing the president’s demand for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. He’s especially keen on universal background checks for gun buyers.
“We already say we can’t own Stinger rockets. So the question is where does the line go? And The line being at semi-automatics is the right place,” Rawlings said Friday over breakfast two blocks from the White House. “The proposals that the president has put on the table are solid and I support them. … We’re going to have to throw everything against the wall.”
Common sense suggests when it comes to preventing massacres such as the one in Newtown, Conn., last month, this is no time to be an “ideologue,” Rawlings said.
He embraces the holistic approach outlined by President Barack Obama earlier this week: attention to mental health and education, to violence in movies and video games, and also to weapons themselves.
“There’s no question that guns play a part of that,” Rawlings said.
When Mike Rawlings ran for Dallas Mayor I am thinking he ran as an Independent, but according to the Dallas County Elections page his party is listed as NON.
I live in Dallas County, but THANK GOD I don’t live in Dallas, Texas. If I did I would move, but I live in Rowlett, one of the most Conservative cities in Dallas County.
Dallas itself, the city, is over-run with Dems and Libbers, and that is a fact! Now it would appear that the Dallas Mayor has fallen in with that Dem/Libber group, and in doing so has made it an absolute necessity for ALL Dems in Dallas proper to vote for him if he wants to be re-elected.
Now it appears that Rawlings is nothing more than an Obama sycophant and wants to dictate to Dallas residents exactly what kind of gun they can or can’t have, with AR-15 type rifle, commonly called *assault weapons* by those that don’t know anything about guns, wars or assault, being high on HIS list of guns to take away.
I am certain that we’ll hear the cries and lamentations of the Dallas Dems and Libbers as they try to convince us to give up our scary looking weapons because, after all, we have a police department to keep us safe and surely there is no way a civilian could have ANY use for an *assault weapon*.
I’ll tell you exactly why we need to be able to own the rifles of our choice, the so-called *assault weapon*; to defend against the MORONS that tell us we can’t!
I will NOT submit to a tyrannical government or citizenry that is so stupid as to believe that WE are all safe simply because we have a police force.
Here is something that the Dem/Libbers just don’t get; the police rarely stop a crime from being committed. I am as PRO-Police as anyone out there but that is just a fact of life. Cops on patrol initiate traffic stops and respond to 9-1-1 calls of a crime in progress.
The average response time on ANY given 9-1-1 call is somewhere OVER 6 minutes.
If I have an armed intruder break into MY home in the middle of the night I just don’t have that 6 minutes to sit calmly and wait, hoping that the Police get there soon, because, you see, the guy that broke in is getting all kinds of pissed off at me for telling him that the police are on the way and they are going to take care of him … once they get here. IF they get here in time.
I have a right to respond to this armed intruder with ANY amount of force as I feel the need to use to make said intruder stop whatever it is he is doing, to cease and desist, stop, give up, and if MY actions cause him great physical injury or death, oh well, The Castle Doctrine is the Law of the Land here in Texas.
Unless some MORON like Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings can get that overturned too.
