To Each According To Their Needs

Ann Coulter

Having given up on trying to persuade Americans that taking guns away from law-abiding citizens will reduce the murder rate, Democrats have turned to their usual prohibitionary argument: “Why does anyone need (an assault weapon, a 30-round magazine, a semiautomatic, etc., etc.)?”

Phony conservative Joe Manchin, who won his U.S. Senate seat in West Virginia with an ad showing him shooting a gun, said, “I don’t know anyone (who) needs 30 rounds in a clip.”

CNN’s Don Lemon, who does not fit the usual profile of the avid hunter and outdoorsman, demanded, “Who needs an assault rifle to go hunting?”

Fantasist Dan Rather said, “There is no need to have these high-powered assault weapons.”

And prissy Brit Piers Morgan thought he’d hit on a real showstopper with, “I don’t know why anyone needs an assault rifle.” Of course, where he comes from, policemen carry wooden sticks.

Since when do Americans have to give the government an explanation for why they “need” something? If that’s the test, I can think of a whole list of things I don’t know why anyone needs.

I don’t know why anyone needs to burn an American flag at a protest. The point could be made just as well verbally.

I don’t know why anyone needs to read about the private lives of celebrities. Why can’t we shut down the gossip rags?

I don’t know why anyone needs to vote. One vote has never made a difference in any federal election.

I don’t know why anyone needs to bicycle in a city.

I don’t know why anyone needs to have anal sex at a bathhouse. I won’t stop them, but I don’t know why anyone needs to do that.

    I wondered that too….but then how else would Barry have met Mooch?

    Grayscape. Thank you! I can’t tell you how relieved I am to hear that. I was so torn at some of her statements last election. She helped shape my conservative views and I just couldn’t believe some of the stuff coming out of her mouth.

    I will start buying her books again.

    I’ve always loved you Ann! Just don’t break my conservative heart again!

    I don’t know why anybody who has always lived in a country governed by a president should have to give that up for a country run by tyrants.

    I’ll keep my guns until I’m dead, thank you.

    Until all conservative columnists stop calling semi-automatic weapons “assault rifles” we’re not helping ourselves. Every time a ‘tard says “assault rifles” when there’s a discussion about things like AR-15s, the ‘tard needs to be corrected immediately, if not sooner, and belittled for their lack of knowledge of firearms. Never let them control the dialog. Pound them into the dirt and never give them a chance to get back up.

    In a sense, it feels like “too little, too late,” coming from her.

    Same thoughts with me about Coulter. Over at PJMedia, it’s Roger L Smith, who said Romney was “inevitable” before things began, “it’s over!” after 2% of the Primary votes, and derided critics of Romney’s statist record as having a “mental disorder.” [To date, posts bringing this to light over there get censored]

    I don’t see why everyone doesn’t need 30 round magazines.

    What are they going to do when the inevitable rioting starts? No one can say it hasn’t happened in our recent past, or that it can’t happen again.

    And no one can say that the government protected innocent people from mass violent attacks during the LA riots. Government didn’t protect or serve, because it’s beyond their capability to do so.

    Even if she does fuck up her politics ever once in a while, you can’t jettison Ann Coulter. Look at this rebuttal to the “Why do you need an AR 15″ gambit. As far as I know it is by far the best rebuttal ever; and it allows conservatives to go on the offensive against liberals

    There’s a reason leftists, especially women leftists, start pooling spittle at the corners of their mouths at the mere mention of her name

    @Mr.Gates — The LA riots are a perfect example of how the police can do nothing in a riot environment. They were ORDERED to stay out of the fight because they knew they’d get killed. It may not be popular, but the chief did the right thing. Had the police gone into that maelstrom there would have been a lot of dead officers and too few of them to help restore some type of order when the riot eventually burned itself out.

    The true heroes of those riots were the Asian shop owners that had rifles, shotguns, and pistols. They protected their own shops and those around them by keeping the rioting blacks away. This kept the riot from growing too large and it burned out quick enough for the police to restore what order they could.
