Rep. John Lewis: ‘British Are Not Coming; We Don’t Need All These Guns’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC, Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis invoked the civil rights movement to rally support for increased gun control legislation.

“Well, now is the time to act,” Lewis said. “It’s not a time for a commission, or more studies. It is time for action. It reminded me of another period, 1968, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Robert Kennedy was assassinated. We can go back to 1963, when Medgar Evers was assassinated. We don’t need more weapons of mass destruction. Nothing saddened me more than last Friday. I cried, I cried when I saw what was happening in Connecticut.”

… Lewis lobbied President Barack Obama and his congressional colleagues to act before children are “slaughtered.”

“Well, the White House must lead,” Lewis said. “The president must lead. Members of the House must lead. Members of the United States Senate must lead. We must be a headlight on this issue and not a taillight. When you see these little children, these little babies, being slaughtered, we have to…

    Game on. Molon Labe.
    He’s right, the enemy is not coming, the enemy is already here in Washington, District of Criminals.
    The Constitution will take precedent over any tyrannical attempt to remove the 2nd Amendment rights of law abiding citizens. PERIOD.
    It is not about hunting you knuckle dragger, it is about protection from a tyrannical government (you) that is hell bent on authoritarian globalism, control and shredding our Constitution.
    How dare these morons defend the rights of the evil mass killers to kill our children and not allow us to defend them in these mass shooting “gun safe zones”.
    GUN SAFE ZONES ARE SAFE ONLY FOR THE EVIL BASTARDS THAT SHOOT OUR KIDS!!!
    Criminals do not obey laws you moron!

And, other than the possibility of him being shot at by the police, I wonder if he has an inkling of guns, gun ownership, and guns as implements, as well as weapons.

    Why don’t you, instead of trying to weave Dr. King into the picture, ask survivor of the Watts riots or the survivors of the Huff riots in Cleveland wheather on not we need more guns ?

    This idiot congressman does not understand the constitution and the reason for the 2A. It wasn’t for us to resist the British, it was for us to resist a tyrannical government. This government is racing as fast as possible into totalitanarianism. Gun control is a major step along that road.

    A little history for idiot congress critters. The reason Yamamoto did not invade the continental US during WWII was not out of fear of the US Army, but out of fear of the american population. He told the japanese emporer and prime minister that there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.

    YOU are the British Mr. Lewis…or do you need a remedial education in American revolutionary era history? The shot heard around the world wasn’t fired because the soldiers marching upon Concord, Mass. were British, it was because they were headed there to seize their ammunition magazine. I suppose you have heard of the Boston Tea Party, which is easy to teach because it was a single high profile incident, but are completely oblivious to “The Powder Alarm” which refers to the British embargo on firearms and ammunition shipping and their attempts to seize colonists supplies of these items? Taxation was the fuse that started the revolution, attempts to disarm the colonists was the flame that lit it.

    Mass school bombing in 1927 puts Sandy Hook in context

    By Scott Bomboy | National Constitution Center – Mon, Dec 17, 2012

    The Sandy Hook tragedy in Connecticut has horrified Americans and in some cases, opened up wounds from a similar disaster in 1927 that have yet to heal.

    Bath_School_Disaster

    Aftermath of the Bath disaster. Source: Wikimedia Commons.

    On Friday, a deranged gunman killed himself and 26 other people at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. The dead included 20 students, and the act sparked mass mourning and outrage worldwide.

    The debate over the Sandy Hook tragedy has also led to discussions about gun control, mental illness, and the media’s role in covering such a horrific story.

    In particular, the debate over assault weapons and the Second Amendment will be brought to the forefront in 2013. President Barack Obama pretty much said so at a public memorial event on Sunday night.

    But what if such a terrible even happened in a different time? How would people have reacted, and would there be such a public outrage or intense debate about constitutional issues?

    On May 18, 1927, a part-time caretaker at a school in Bath, Michigan, killed 45 people, including 38 children, when he blew up a school and then killed himself, along with two first responders at the scene. Another 58 people were wounded.

    The 38 children were in grades three through six.

    The Bath School Bombing faded quickly from history. What media there was in 1927 left the town after about a week, since aviator Charles Lindbergh had started on his flight to Europe.

    However, there are parallels between the Sandy Hook and Bath disasters that are worth discussing.

    The killer in the Bath School Bombing, Andrew Kehoe, spent months placing explosives inside the school. He used his job as a handyman to wire together two types of explosives, in an elaborate plan to bring down the building while it was occupied with students and teachers.

    Kehoe also rigged his car with explosives and shrapnel, as well as his house.

    Once Kehoe blew up his own house, he used a detonator to blow up part of the school. School Superintendent Emory Huyck performed heroically, rescuing children and adults from the disaster scene. After about 30 minutes, Kehoe drove up to Huyck and motioned him over to his truck.

    Kehoe then blew up the truck, killing himself, Hucyk, and several others, including a child who survived the first blast.

    Investigators later found more than 500 pounds of unexploded dynamite under the school. Kehoe had intended to kill hundreds of people, mostly students, but his wiring was faulty.

    Kehoe had financial problems and was upset about having to pay taxes. He had killed his own wife before blowing up his house.

    But the parallels to Sandy Hook are not in the method and motivation behind Kehoe’s madness. They come from the stories of heroism and compassion.

    Bath was a small town, so all pitched in to clear the rubble, find the victims, and offer assistance. Help streamed in from the neighboring town of Lansing.

    Michigan’s governor arrived that afternoon and helped to cart away the rubble. During the rescue efforts, the Michigan State Police had to disarm the huge cache of explosives that never went off.

    In the days that followed, contemporary accounts said more than 50,000 people descended on Bath, either to offer help or to see the disaster scene.

    “Relief workers could not get in or out of the village unless accompanied by motorcycle policemen and even then they made slow time,” said one newspaper account.

    In the end, the state set up a relief fund for the school, which received numerous public and private donations. One politician wrote a personal check for $75,000.

    And the population of Bath, once the outsiders left, went back to farming and grieved. Unlike today, there were no 24-hour TV news cameras remaining on the scene or talk shows debating the merits of the Second Amendment.

    But the wounds from the Bath School Bombing followed the survivors for generations. In recent years, people who were in the building were opening up about their experiences, as they reached their 90s.

    In 2009, National Public Radio spoke with two survivors and the daughter of a third.

    “You wouldn’t think a church member could do such a thing, would you?” said a 97-year-old man, Willis Cressman. “He was the caretaker of the school. In fact, I saw him that morning. He was working on a door, and he smiled at us as we walked in.”

What about the 51 Under 18 Black Youths that wer killed in Chicago last weekend , any tears over them. Has himself or Rep Sheila Jackson Lee or even President Obama Or Attorney General Holder gone to Chicago adn try to find out that there has been 500 murders in Chicago this year. Where is the press on all those Black Youths that are being killed , young children, innocent bystanders palying in fron of their house being killed by drivebys . These aren’t White Gangs these are all black Gangs , with Chicago having the Strictest Gun Laws , how did these Black Youths and gangs get their Guns anyway.

You cannot legally hold the office when you do not meet the requirements; and for those who say that he received the necessary votes, you are wrong! – when we have a voting system where fraud is rampant and individuals who are dependent on government entitlements are allowed to vote, then votes mean nothing, and besides, you cannot vote someone into a position that by law and the Constitution does not meet the requirements. We have been without a President for four years and possibly the next four. Everyone who knows and says that he is a fraud counteracts that by calling this scumbag a President.

    While it’s true that the British aren’t coming, resisting foreign tyranny is only part of what the 2nd Amendment is about. It’s also about resisting domestic tyranny, in the event our own government decides to go rogue and run roughshod over the rights of Americans. It is then declared official by me, and other intelligent Americans, that Representative John Lewis is ignorant of the topic and, thus, has no idea what he’s talking about.

And if these anti gun nut jobs had there way it could very well happen. These so called do gooders can not see the forrest through the trees.

    How can you take a man seriously when he thinks a rifle or a pistol is a WMD? If he has so little knowledge of arms, he does not belong in Congress. The man is ignorant like a sack of doorknobs!

  • moberndorf

    How do moronic fools like this get elected to anything, much less Congress. And remeber folks, when this idiot retires, we will pay him $174,000 a year, plus office expenses, for the rest of his worthless life. Join the Secession Movement!

    Coming from a Liberal that already recieves that protect from the Goverment. Democrat Liberals will not allow our children to be protected by Armed Guards.But they want the same protection themselfs.I say protect our children first! the heck with Politicians .

  • Mike11C

    We don’t “need” guns? That’s a load of manure! What do you think would happen to our freedom if guns were banned? The fact that Americans are armed is why we still have what we do If we allow them to take away our Second Amendment, or even further regulate it, the First Amendment will soon follow. I have no intention of allowing anyone to disarm me. If I don’t “need” guns, then those fat-cat politicians don’t “need” a fat pension, a big house, a nice luxury car, and a $1000 suit. Shall we continue to talk about what we don’t “need”?

  • Jimbo

    It is not the British we need to fear. remember Hitler took away the German’s , Argentina took away guns China took away guns. check Mike Savage about ALL the countries that took away guns first then interned and did away with the dissidents. Don’t let history repeat itself

    if folks like Sen. John Lewis want to belive that making more silly laws that restrict the leagle right of citizens to own and bare arms is the way to prevent horrible things like the acts of an obviously mentally defective person from happening again , well , i guess Sam Elliot put it best when he said that folks like that are a Special kind of Stupid . would it not make more sense to make laws that punish the real WRONG DOER’s , the ones who failed in maintaning proper CONTROLE of their fire arms in the first place . didn’t we read some where that MOM knew this man was unbalanced for some time , and rather that risk possible embarasement if friennd’s or other family member’s knew about his problem’s she foolishly and in my opinion NEGLIGENTLY chose to ignore and even hide it , why are there no punishment’s being meated out or even suggested against the mother and anyone else found culpable in not getting thismguy some mental health assistance . well thats my 2 cent’s worth of opinion on this matter thank you for reading this.

    What a disgusting outcry from someone who swore an oath to protect and defend our rights. He should step down or be removed from office. Represenatives like him are exactly why the 2nd Amendment was put in place. The tyrants are out to destroy our Constitution and the only thing standing in their way is our right to arms. Something far worse than the British are coming; the socialist organized criminal organization currently controled by liberal radicals.

  • Dave Garry

    Liberals, until you demand that drones are banned and Obama stops bombing and killing kids every day you have no moral authority to go on about children getting slaughtered.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    “Well, the White House must lead,” Lewis said. “The president must lead.
    Members of the House must lead. Members of the United States Senate
    must lead. We must be a headlight on this issue and not a taillight.
    When you see these little children, these little babies, being
    slaughtered, we have to…”

    GOOD IDEA.

    YOU lead by example.

    YOU give up your guns and body guards, armed or not.

    The PEOPLE do not walk around with body guards 24/7, and neither should you feel you need them.

    IF you were HONEST and IF Integrity were a part of your Character, you would not NEED them.

    IF you were not trying to gain CONTROL over others, you would have no fear.

    REMOVE ALL Secret Service protections and institute a 1000′ “Gun Free Zone” around yourselves, with a 48 hour notice to allow Intelligent People that carry to protect themselves from the criminal element that you coddle from inadvertently violating your ‘GFZ’.

    That way everybody will be safe from harm.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    Hey John?

    How about a complete ban, confiscation and destruction of corrupt politicians?

    They have killed more Honest, Law Abiding People than all the ‘school shooters’.

    I’ll kick in $100 for a “buy back” program.

    The whole idea of the right to arm ourselves ISN’T because a FOREIGN country might come and enslave us. It is in fact given to us so OUR country doesn’t enslave us! DUH! This moron knows nothing of history, the events of the Building of the Constitution, the writings of the original sponsors/designers of the Second Amendment, or it seems,…. not even the fact that “THE ENGLISH” were our Government AND countrymen. And this guy made it to the House of Representatives. OH, but Wait, anyone with a loud voice, soothing grammar, money from agenda laden supporters can even make it to the White House, can’t they?

    A socialist government is more dangerous than the British

    LIFE IS HARD, IT’S EVEN HARDER IF YOU ARE STUPID, JOHN LEWIS IS A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID!

  • URKiddinMee

    We aren’t concerned about the British, John. We are concerned about the hordes of illegal aliens who kill 2.7 of our citizens per DAY plus all those predators from YOUR “hood” who are turned loose back on the streets after committing murders and mayhem. Keep ‘em locked up and the world would be a LITTLE safer.

    I’ll consider reducing MY armament right AFTER you disband the Capitol Police Force, eliminate the metal detectors at the entrances to Congress and fire your personal bodyguards. How’s THAT sound, hypocrite?

  • Florida

    Constitutional attorney Stewart Rhodes will explain it for you.

    …”The whole point of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military capacity of the American people – to preserve the ability of the people, who are the militia, to provide for their own security as individuals, as neighborhoods, towns, counties, and states, during any emergency, man-made or natural; to preserve the military capacity of the American people to resist tyranny and violations of their rights by oath breakers within government; and to preserve the military capacity of the people to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, including those oath breaking domestic enemies within government. It is not about hunting, and at its core, the Second Amendment is not really even about self-defense against private criminals. It is about self-defense against public criminals – against tyrants, usurpers, and foreign invaders.

    . Thus, any attempt to ban their possession, sale, purchase, or transfer, is an attempt to disarm the American people.”

  • opsman

    For starters listening to this guy is a chore in itself. No the British are not coming, something far more dangerous is, The politicians from Washington DC, that’s who’s coming, they are coming after our Constitution the very thing that makes The United States of America what it is. HEY Congress! Want to lead and get passionate about something, how about tackling all the wasteful spending you guys do with OUR money! How about a balanced budget and fix Social Security instead of robbing it like it’s your slush fund. And above all, STOP passing laws that do not apply to you!

  • jackel

    Just looking at that idiot makes me want one !Is he the nut that said Guam would tip if more Marines were sent ?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516711224 Vic Bailey

      No, that was Hank Johnson while comming down off a high! Lewis’s right hand man! Semper Fi.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516711224 Vic Bailey

    You are right Lewis, The British are not comming, BUT the Socialist Bastards like you are comming and you will NOT WIN! You WILL NOT GET MY GUNS and YOU WON’T DESTROY MY CONSTITUTION, NOR BURN MY FLAG you had better pack because we don’t need any Socialist and Communist in our NEW GOVERNMENT! Hank Johnson and you had better not go to Guam, it might turn over! You have to be the most arrogant ass I have ever heard speak. When the people WIN, you know what happens to TRAITORS? There are about 5 million of you and there about 80 million of us, Want to make a little wager who wins? (and we are getting pissed at how you are running our country in the ground)!! Semper Fi.

  • Liam Campbell

    Sir, you did not cry. You and the puppet in the white house were hoping an event like this would occur that could be used in your blasphemous attempt to rid the United States of the one document and the one amendment which prevents the perversion of socialism from sprouting like a noxious weed in this, the true Promised Land.

  • EBlake

    There already here! and just waiting in the wings for us to be disarmed.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    No, Redcoats aren’t coming, but John Lewis and those who would trample our Constitution and liberties are already here.

    When we first rebelled against British rule we were still a British colony. This ignoramus needs a history lesson.

    “The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.”
    Judge Alex Kozinski

  • chuck146

    THE BRITISH ARE ALREADY HERE, PIERS MORGAN AND ANY OF THE OTHERS OF HIS KIND ARE SPEAKING ANTI GUN CRAP. THIS LEWIS IS ANOTHER OBAMA FOLLOWER, WHAT COULD ONE EXPECT FROM THEM?

  • lupine

    Hey, that”s nerve! He presumes to tell the American people what they need and what they don’t need. Someone should ask him if we need the Bill of Rights. Anyone who presumes to tell me what I need had better be a salesman and not a politician. A politician who does so is a wannabe despot.

  • muypro

    Its NOT the British we are concerned with ,rather , Communistic leaning Democrats!

  • barto

    If this idiot would read the reasoning behind the writers purpose for the 2nd. amendment he would see that it was for the citizenry to be armed to protect themselves from tyranny, sort of like what appears to be happening now with our Government becoming more powerful and limiting the power of WE the people. NO dumb-dumb Lewis I’m not afraid that the British are coming but rather our own too powerful Government that keeps leaning toward more taxation and control without proper representation which is eerily similiar to Socialism and Communism.

  • miker

    No the british are not coming but you can bet our goverment is look what happend to germany in 1933
