United States Senator Mark Warner (D-VA)—a longtime political chameleon and cunning electoral opportunist—has found an opportunity to again change “colors” in light of the demonic Newtown school shootings.
In a plea to fellow lawmakers, Warner seeks legislative action to put “appropriate restrictions” on firearms and find a “reasonable approach to restrict access” to certain weapons.
The slimy Senator, who currently (i.e. temporarily) holds an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) should be compelled to take the following multiple-choice quiz prior to seeking reelection or another political office:
I previously supported absolute 2nd Amendment rights because:
- “Hunting” used to be important.
- I could not have anticipated that someone would shoot young children.
- I knew that it was possible for someone to shoot young children, but since it had not happened yet, I could safely hold a “pro-gun” position for political purposes. (I live in Virginia, a semi-rural, semi-conservative state.)
- I never really believed in the necessity of the 2nd Amendment, but that position was helpful to me in getting elected.
Now, I believe that 2nd Amendment rights should be restricted because:
- Young children were murdered by an evil person using a gun.
- The president said so, and I follow his lead.
- I want to appear compassionate.
- Banning access to certain types of guns will make us a safer nation.
- I was waiting for this opportunity to switch my position on firearms; I know that a NRA-endorsed, “pro-gun” Democrat would not be a viable primary candidate for President of the United States.
- I finally realized that guns, not people, are the problem.
- The United States Constitution is fungible.
While Mark Warner cites acceding to questions raised by his daughters as an excuse for changing his mind on the U.S. Constitution, his Virginia constituents are looking for a better, more substantive answer as to why the mendacious Democrat would willingly subvert the 2nd Amendment and his sworn Oath of Office.
