McCain: Knife restrictions, mental evaluations next?

What would McCain consider as next step in “curbing violence?”

As John McCain aims to restrict Second Amendment rights in the wake of the Newtown shooting tragedy, the Obama regime is buying up billions of rounds of bullets, to guard against law abiding citizens being able to possess firearms that function.

Yet the most recent attack that seriously wounded at least 14 people — two remain in critical condition — was carried out by a knife wielding perpetrator.

The brutal stabbing occurred on the Lone Star Community College campus in Cypress, Texas. Many of the victims were stabbed in the face and neck. The assailant used a razor type knife and told authorities he had fantasized since childhood about stabbing people to death.

Will this vicious act signal the implementation of registration and restriction of knives? Will department stores be required to perform cursory mental health evaluations before knives could be purchased? Some reports indicated the slasher used a box-cutter or “exacto” knife. Could the burden for checking purchasers fall on the orange-aproned Home Depot clerks? Who will monitor on-line purchases of cutlery sets?

This past weekend in Goodyear, Arizona, a 64-year-old man — a constituent of Sen. John McCain’s — savagely attacked and fatally stabbed his wife and grown son in their home. In the heavily publicized Jodi Arias murder trial taking place in McCain’s home state –just 7 miles from his palatial high-rise condo, one of the weapons she used to kill Travis Alexander was — you guessed it: A knife.

In a joint appearance with Chuck Schumer on Face the Nation, McCain — echoing Obama’s press secretary Jay Carney — told Bob Schieffer that he didn’t understand why some Republicans want to filibuster the gun control bill being pushed by Harry Reid, Schumer, and Obama. The loopy, Democrat colluder, McCain believes Harry Reid’s pledge to Republicans that they can offer amendments. Reid also has a bridge to sell.

The Democrats Rapid Response Team makes use of McCain in a video to bolster Obama’s restrictive measures:

    Excuse me, SRAZ, but JEFF FLAKE was one of the 16 Republicans who voted to move forward with gun control legislation in the Senate.

    This is the third time you have focused on McCain with little or no mention of Flake. Once or twice could be coincidence but not three times!

    Why are you shielding Jeff Flake in your articles?

    Yes, you’ve gone after Flake in the past. Yes, you have an archive on Flake. That was “yesterday”, before Flake became a U. S. Senator. In the most recent articles, you’ve focused on McCain almost to the exclusion of Flake.

    What seems to be the problem, SRAZ?

  2. Scott says:

    You got to give Democrats credit for being wise enough to use McCain in their video. He campaigned for Obama and continues to act on Obama’s behalf.

  3. eubykdisop says:

    Here’s a video for you, Scott!

    Watch as JEFF “The Snake” FLAKE schmoozes it up with MARK KELLY at the at the Senate gun control/ban hearing:

    • Vince says:

      Thanks for this video, euby! Flake clearly shows his alignment with Gabby Gifford on “border issues.” We all regret the shooting that left her disabled, but let’s not forget that in congress, she was a liberal Democrat who was a pet of Nancy Pelosi’s. Flake also forged congressional deals benefiting illegal aliens with Luis Gutierrez, who represents Obama’s Chicagoland.

      In defense of SRAZ, this site has been relentless in its exposure of the guy they identify as Jeff the Flake or Jeff McFlake. Had I not read the revealing posts about his leftward slant, I would have voted for him for in his run for the Senate. I didn’t….thanks in large measure to Seeing Red AZ.

      The fact that Flake won by the slimmest of margins, shows the high levels of distrust with which Republicans view him.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Hi, Vince! :-)

        You’re most welcome!

        Oh yeah, no question that SRAZ was on Flake during the campaign and has been on him all along. Now that he’s a U. S. Senator, it’s time to remain on his case right along with his fellow Senator, John McCain! We don’t want JEFF “The Snake” FLAKE to hide comfortably in the shadow of McCain! ;-)

    Gun control legislation in any form is a means to the ultimate goal of gun confiscation – period. There is no other reason than that. And once done, just watch the blood shed by the government against it’s citizens. If the death of children are so tragic then why abortion? Why isn’t the Dr. Gosnell baby slaughtering trial being reported 24 – 7? Why it doesn’t fit the narrative.

  5. eubykdisop says:

    Concerned about McAmnesty? Try Flakeamnesty!

    Watch JEFF FLAKE defend his STRIVE Act amnesty to Lou Dobbs and fellow Republican Congressman Brian Bilbray:

    • eubykdisop says:

      As you watch the above video remember that the head of the AZ GOP, Robert Graham, just appointed Chad Heywood as Executive Director of the Arizona Republican Party and that Heywood was Director of Outreach for Congressman JEFF FLAKE.

      Graham also appointed Gretchen Conger Martinez as Chief of Staff of the Arizona Republican Party after Martinez served as Director of Government Relations for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry which opposed SB 1070 and five anti-illegal immigration bills in the Arizona State Legislature. Martinez also attended high school in Santiago, Chile.

      The question is not whether or not Robert Graham is going to sell us out on immigration but rather when he is going to do it! Graham’s rationale will go something like this:

      “I think this legislation is a good compromise which treats immigrants and their families in a humane manner while protecting the interests of America and Arizona.”

      In fact, you can feel free to use that statement verbatim, Robert!

  6. eubykdisop says:

    Arizona Republican Sen. JEFF FLAKE said it’s “inevitable” that a future GOP presidential candidate will support homosexual “marriage” and that he or she will have Republican support. He also reminds us that he voted to repeal “Dont Ask Don’t Tell”.

  7. eubykdisop says:

    “Giffords thanks GOP Sens. McCain, Flake for gun measure vote”

    “By Daniel Strauss – 04/11/13″

    “Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) thanked Arizona Sens. John McCain (R) and Jeff Flake (R) for voting to allow the Senate to debate gun control legislation on Thursday.”

    “Gabrielle Giffords”

    “Proud of my senators @SenJohnMcCain & @JeffFlake for voting yes to continued debate on reducing gun violence.Tucson deserves a vote.Thanks.”

    http://thehill.com/blogs/twitter-room/other-news/293309-giffords-thanks-mccain-and-flake-for-vote-on-gun-legislation

    Note that Giffords thanked BOTH McCain AND JEFF FLAKE!

    Wes Harris is allegedly the man spearheading a recall effort for our 2 senators. Contact info? Comments? Anybody know anything about this man?

    • Tea Partier says:

      Doc:

      Wes Harris heads up a tea party and has several burrs in his saddle as well as bees in his bonnet and a few bugs up his butt. Having said that, if he is not going to muck this up as he has so many other things, it’s worth looking into. I simply don’t trust him to get it right, and summer in Arizona is not the time to be undertaking petition drives. Volunteer drives don’t work as they used to. It takes money and paid circulators. People are used to getting paid for this work.

      In 2001, there was a strong force working on a recall of John McCain. They had a small office on North Central and I collected several pages with no trouble at all. Then along came September 11th and everyone’s attention was diverted. John McCain was probably the only American who breathed a sigh of relief that horrible day.

  9. Delilah says:

    wwharris@msn.com Ok Wes can be a pain, but that is his email address. Lets all take a petition and get it filled on both our lying Senators.

    • Doc says:

      For the record; I got this info from AZ Republican HQ THIS MORNING After th’ socialist vote…

  10. eubykdisop says:

    Here are a few comments regarding the legality of such a recall:

    “The following states have “open” recall laws—that is the power of recall is not limited to certain enumerated offices.”

    “Arizona (“Every public officer in the State of Arizona, holding an elective office, either by election or appointment, is subject to recall.”) (Ariz. Const. Art. 8 Part. 1 § 1).”

    “The state of the law on this question is unsettled. The arguments in favor of the validity of the application of state recall laws are plain and evident. Moreover, all state laws are presumptively constitutional until ruled to the contrary.”

    There would be legal action to stop the recall. Surviving that, and gathering the necessary signatures, it would likely end up with SCOTUS. We’re talking BIG legal costs here, millions! Better have some deep pockets OR a committed pro bono defense team!

    “New York resident has gun license wrongly revoked, concerns raised about law”

    “April 11, 2013″

    “Lewis, who does not have a criminal record, caught the eye of state officials because it was believed that because of a prescription for psychotropic drugs that he was a danger to others, his attorney claims.”

    “A provision in the recently passed NY SAFE Act calls for individuals with serious mental illness who may be dangerous to potentially have access to firearms restricted.”

    “Tresmond said in media reports that Lewis did have a temporary, short-term issue and required medication, but nothing recent. He suggested in a radio interview that his client’s private medical history was accessed by the government, violating his rights by using a loophole under HIPAA laws.”

    “This court has determined that the information received from the New York State Police, which served as the basis for suspension of the Licensee’s firearms license, was in error” reads the court order from Judge Boller. “…it is HEREBY ordered, the suspension of the firearms license herein is hereby terminated, and any firearms of the licensee being held by any police agency are to be returned.”

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/11/flaws-revealed-in-ny-safe-act-after-state-resident-has-gun-license-wrongly/?test=latestnews

    Here we have law enforcement spending it’s time going through medical records. Because police officers are not medical professionals, they jumped to conclusions, based upon a prescription, and got it all wrong!

    Will any of your prescribed medications, past or present. or any of your medical history result in confiscation of your guns? How is your “gun health”? Isn’t it convenient for “Big Brother” that there is a “loophole” in HIPAA laws! Wonder how that happened, LOL!

    “Boehner: I Don’t Need GOP to Pass Gun Law…”

    “by Ben Shapiro 11 Apr 2013″

    “On Thursday, in the midst of ongoing national debate over prospective gun control and comprehensive immigration legislation, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he didn’t need the approval of a majority of his own party to move forward with legislation. Referring to the so-called Hastert Rule, named after former House Speaker Denny Hastert (R-IL), which dictated that House leadership not bring up any bill for a vote without the support of a majority of the majority party, Boehner said, “Listen: It was never a rule to begin with.”

    JAKE SEZ:

    In order to defend against the assult knife problems, why don’t we ban all sharping devices. A dull knife is a safe knife.

    • Maggie says:

      Good idea! Better yet, why don’t we just ban John McCain and Jeff Flake. We can still vote…at least for now.

    • eubykdisop says:

      There’s no reason why you can’t get along with just a spoon, especially if we legislate that all meat must be ground before being sold to consumers.
