Hey, remember that time Pat Toomey tried to ban guns just because 28 people died at Sandy Hook?

By MFP  December 28th, 2013

Last April, Pat Toomey and Joe Manchin tried to exploit the Sandy Hook tragedy to pressure Congress into passing a stealth, gun confiscation bill.

In the end, Manchin-Toomey was derailed by Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee– who warned that Manchin-Toomey could lead to a federal gun registry, and ultimately, gun confiscation…

As we enter 2014, let us take a moment to mock Pat Toomey– that two-faced, fascist, anti-American filth– for his Goebbels-esque fear-mongering.

A year has passed since Sandy Hook. No new federal anti-gun legislation has passed. And yet…

- Everyone is still alive.
- Children are still more likely to be struck by lightning than massacred at school.

The failure of Manchin-Toomey once again demonstrates the divinely-inspired wisdom of the Founders– intentionally fashioning a deliberate, legislative process– shielded, as much as possible, from the irrational passions of the people.
