John Fonda Kerry, Gun Grabber

I found this little bit over at the Geek's place. It's John Fonda Kerry's Senate speech during the "Assault Weapons" Ban debate. This last bit is what hits hard.

For those who want to wield those weapons, we have a place for them. It is the U.S. military. And we welcome them.

The absurdity of that statement makes my head hurt. Fuck you, Mr. Fonda-Kerry. The only reason to disarm a populace is to subjugate them, something that I'm sure you're just salivating over. You don't even take into consideration the many people who cannot join the military for one reason or another, but who have a Constitutionally protected right to own firearms!

Of course, history has seen speeches like John Fonda Kerry's before.

"Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA -- ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the state."

-- Heinrich Himmler, WWII

Every mass genocide, every country held under a dictator's thumb, every brutal thug's rise to power occured only after the people were disarmed. It seems that John Fonda Kerry would like to prepare America to be subjects instead of citizens.
