“Sen. Chuck Schumer Says the NRA Is an Extreme ‘Fringe Group’”

The kind of “extreme fringe group” that led the fight to defeat gun control measures that disarmed blacks.

But then, I guess when you’re a Democrat and a progressive, disarming minorities and assuming control over subjects — that is, state slavery — is an historic norm. Making anything that protects liberty and equality of opportunity appear “fringe” to you.

Not to mention a nuisance. If only these fringey people would get out of the way and let the left do what it knows is best, we’d finally have Utopia. And who doesn’t want that?

Extremists, that’s who.

  1. the politburo put out their marching orders.

  2. I’d like to thank Mother Jones for convincing me to join The Second Amendment Foundation ($15 1yr); Gun Owners of America ($20 1yr); CCRKBA ($15 1yr); national gun rights org ($35 1yr); and JPFO.org ($25 1yr). This to go along with my NRA membership. Took about a half-hour to join them all.

  3. what’s an extreme fringe is m’chelle’s bangs I think

    somebody really should pull her aside and put her a little honesty

  4. NG did bangs about a year and a half ago and she said what do you think I said I liked it better the other way cause the other way made you look pretty

    she said yeah that was kinda the vibe I got from P (her husband what she married)

    I said yeah you were pickin up what he was layin down

    and poof the bangs were gone the next day

    and that is the story of how you handle bangs

  5. Thank you for joining the NRA. We appreciate your interest in protecting and preserving our Second Amendment rights and promoting safe, responsible gun ownership.

    Your credit card will be billed for $35.00* for a 1 Year Membership in the National Rifle Association with “American Rifleman” as your magazine choice.

  6. a beautiful love story hf

  7. Yeah, well, screw Schumer and the hammer and sickle that’s enslaving the new Democrat party. He is OWNED by the ghosts of Vladimirs Kruschev and Lenin.

    An aside, I”m feeling just a bit guilty for gloating over the look of pained inevitability on the face of Bill Belicheat. No, really!

  8. If over 4 million is an extreme fringe group, then what does it take to be mainstream?

    And what does that make outfits like the ACLU with their laughable litte half a million?

  9. Heh. He looks goofy in the that hoodie.

  10. Damn. We’ll suffer two weeks of unrelenting Harbaugh, with thunder and Lewis punctuating.

  11. I am boycotting the fucking Super Bowl this year.

    And probably ESPN for that matter. Their normal jock sniffing is bad enough, their slobbering over Ray Lewis has been disgusting.

  12. did the ravens win? i don’t watch.

  13. Congress is an extreme fringe group. The White house is an extreme fringe group. The press is an extreme fringe group.

  14. I think when the Boy Scouts became an extreme fringe group, it became apparent anyone that didn‘t take it up the ass was to be considered extreme…

  15. Baltimore and San Francisco in the Super Bowl. And Organizing for Action keeping Obama’s trains of Republic destruction running right on schedule. There’s a tie-in between the two, if someone could flesh it out, I’d be grateful.

  16. I’m still holding a grudge about the Colts moving to Indianapolis.

    The Ravens? It’s all kinds of wrong.

  17. I hated the Ravens when they were the Browns, they have done nothing to improve my opinion of them since.

  18. Extreme fringe 4-star General ousted for insisting men think. Questions are beyond the out-of-bounds, and therefore beyond usefulness.

  19. Had John Fox let Peyton Manning throw to a tight end on third down while Baltimore was playing to stop the run, the Broncos would have been able to run the clock out with the ball instead of allowing a Hail Mary to succeed because of mistimed jump by a safety who wanted an interception instead of not allowing the ball to get behind him with 12 seconds left.

    Even if the receiver makes that catch in front of him, he gets tackled and with no time outs the Ravens couldn’t have made it down the field and gotten set in time to run another play.

    I’m still grieving.

  20. it is a black thing like “assault” say ravens

  21. do peeps still watch nfl. propaganda for the zeitgest

  22. anybody associated with the bushes is to be ignored

  23. funny how rooney “one” the super bowl in 2009 and became ambassador to ireland. bs

  24. sdferr, remember when Obama said he’d make a good chief of staff? I’ll bet Obama thinks he’d make a good general, too.

  25. Why does John Fox still have a job anyways?

  26. Why does John Fox still have a job anyways?

    Because he took the Bronco’s to the second round playoff game two years running, further than they’ve gone in many years?

  27. I’m probably being unreasonable, but having Manning take a knee so you can take your chances on a coin toss and overtime is to me too suggestive of playing to not lose instead of playing to win.

    You’ll have to understand, I’m a life long Vikings fan, so I know all about coaches (GaahREEEENNNNNNNNNNAaaaaaahhhhhh) who don’t mind losing, as long as they don’t get beat.

  28. the politburo put out their marching orders.

    They have, but Chucky didn’t need them, he only needed to have his leash taken off. He made his living attacking the 2nd all his time in the House. He’s in his glory now and salivating that this time he will crush that old amendment for good.

  29. The big leaders are just into it for the power but the ones who are in the next few tiers may just want to ban guns for everyone so they themselves don’t do something terrible. They must control everyone because they can’t control themselves.

  30. The chances of getting killed in one of these mass shootings is about the same, maybe a bit less, as getting killed by lightning.


    54 people a year on average die from lightning strikes. I don’t see anyone hyperventilating over that.

  31. I have two favorite pro football teams: the Seattle Seahawks and whoever is playing the 49ers. Go Ravens!

    Oh, and fuck Chuck Schumer.

  32. Obama says FU to us right back.

    Obama’s ATF Nominee on DOJ’s Fast and Furious Design Team

  33. I’m not fond of that argument, PurpleAv. I didn’t like it when the lefties tried to use it to minimize the importance of 9/11, either.

    The difference lies in intent. Lightning has no intent. Neither do traffic accidents. Terrorists do.

  34. And Chuck Schumer is a sociopath, an empty cereal box in the marketplace of ideas. I mean, based on his appearances and my ability to gin up a comment thereon.

    “The Second Amendment is not absolute. It does not guarantee the mythical individual right to bear arms we will hear argued for today.”

    “There is no Constitutional question here. The NRA has convinced a lot of people that the right to bear arms is an absolute right. It is not, any more than the right to have an automobile is an absolute right.”

    – Rep. Charles Schumer, (D) New York, 1995

    Chuck Schumer’s inevitably rights-abusive trajectory in the office of Eternal Senator is something normal people not Chuck Schumer figured out a long time ago so as to predict various Chuck Schumers and hopefully unemploy the sons of bitches out of said office, a point so far lost on the clowns who’ve left this Chuck Schumer in office.

    I’m not sure what that makes them but Chuck himself looks a lot sociopathic to me.

  35. “It is not, any more than the right to have an automobile is an absolute right.”

    That would be head slappingly stupid if the dumbest poster on DU or Daily Kos said it.

  36. manhattan trash, they do not understand about automobiles

  37. So, articles of impeachement are being drawn up for Schumer even as we speak, right?

    I kill myself sometimes.

  38. “There is no Constitutional question here. The NRA has convinced a lot of people that the right to bear arms is an absolute right. It is not, any more than the right to have an automobile is an absolute right.”

    Sounds familiar.

    “A lot of these people … all they’ve got is their hunting and their fishing,” he told the Democratic financiers. “Or they’re living in a place where they don’t have much police presence. Or they’ve been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it all.”

  39. Two things, absolute is a weasel word, as no right is absolute. And owning an automobile isn’t a right, it’s a privilege.

  40. perhaps driving one is a privilege

    owning one is a right

  41. I’ll concede the difference.

  42. “Fringe” means “not in the echo chamber”.

    BTW, isn’t labeling them as “fringe” a way to “Other” people? I thought that was doubleplusungood. Or is there a special exception for Certain People to Other whomever they want?

  43. I should add that both those statements are the left projecting their own big lie technique on their enemies.

  44. Surrey with the fringe on top ‘ill git ya where ya a gettin

  45. OT: Well, no wonder everything’s FUBAR

    In the past, political struggles were largely fought over how to divide up the spoils generated by the basic productive economy; labor, investors and management all shared a belief in the ethos of economic growth, manufacturing and resource extraction.

    In contrast, today’s new hegemons hail almost entirely from outside the material economy, and many come from outside the realm of the market system entirely. . . . To understand the possible implications of the new power arrangement, it is critical to understand the nature of the new clerisy. Unlike traditional capitalist power groups, including private-sector organized labor, the clerisy’s power derives not primarily through economic influence per se but through its growing power to inform opinion and regulate everything from how people live to what industries will be allowed to grow, or die.

  46. Chuck should “shut up” because by his reckoning the 1st Amendment isn’t absolute either.

  47. If over 4 million is an extreme fringe group, then what does it take to be mainstream?

    And what does that make outfits like the ACLU with their laughable litte half a million?

    I’m not sure — let’s ask CAIR!

  48. Chuck “knows” he is in the special class to whom all rights are permanently assigned, as long as you toe the Party line and kiss the ass above you, until the day comes that you are unpersoned for the good of the Party[‘s Leader].

    That link is some good stuff.

  50. “Neo says January 21, 2013 at 9:39 am
    Chuck should “shut up” because by his reckoning the 1st Amendment isn’t absolute either.”

    Neither is the establishment of the bicameral congress or the union of states.

  52. It’s a good thing Denver got rid of Tim “Awkward Throwing Motion” Tebow and replaced him with the God of Football/Democrats are inducing me to join organizations, which I am loathe to do, ever.

    Srsly, I don’t even like to register as a Republican, and wouldn’t if it weren’t for the fact that we don’t have open primaries in FL/Peyton will always be 0-4 against the Gators.
