    Dem Rep: Women should serve in combat, but shouldn’t use assault weapons

    My only other post on the forum referenced an article that you would have sworn came from The Onion. Strangley, this one fits the bill too.

    Dem Rep: Women should serve in combat, but shouldn?t use assault weapons | Video | TheBlaze.com


    BLUF: "On the very same day that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women serving in active combat zones, a Democratic congresswoman from New York argued that assault weapons are actually difficult for women to handle and should therefore be banned."

    Anti arguments are so confusing. Women can't use ARs in the civilian world because they are too unwiedly, but they can use them in the military in combat MOSs. Wierd.

    Women have the right to now be in combat, but can't use military rifles to defend themselves/ fight the enemy? What do they expect them to do, use strong language?

    We saw that story of how that lady smothered a guy to death. Guess they are bringing their own weapons.

    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    No. It's truly mind-boggling.

    You get BS from a BS'er. It's quite common in Washington.

    What next? Disarm the military too. I can't put words to how I feel right now because I would be banned from the site.

    This is the common problem with all politicians AND media. They spout things "that they were told", and people take them as facts. Then they distance themselves from it because they didn't check it before the diarrhea of the mouth kicked in.

    This is why it is important, on anything that you believe in, that you politely, but firmly, correct them with references to facts. If you hear someone at work spouting this kind of crap, please, please, very politely correct them. Take them shooting. Explain to them that they are just misinformed.

    I swear, Carolyn McCarthy has established a new low in intelligence, and frankly for her, I just didn't think that was possible.
