Senator Ted Cruz was the Texas Solicitor General prior to his new career in the Senate. For those that don't know, he defeated the establishment Republican in the Texas primary to replace Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, and then won the general election in November. Here's his exchange and reasoning when dealing with Gun Ban Dianne and her dithering response.

I think Ted is going to be, if not the most effective, the most entertaining senator we have seen in a while. Makes me proud to be a Texan!

He just said what I've been saying all along,and instead of answering his question she goes on to babble about everything except what he asked her

Another benefit of his election (to me, anyway) is that he's pulling our Senior Senator, John Cornyn, to the right.

"Imploding bullets"?

Wasn't long ago another anti ranted about "exploding bullets".

To my knowledge, both types are unavailable to the general public. The latter due to restricted sale of HE rounds, and the former due to not existing in reality.

I think I'd much rather be hit by an imploding bullet than an exploding bullet. An imploding bullet might actually close the wound up...:image035:

If I were there I would just blow up, I don't know how people like Cruz can sit there and listen to the diatribe of nonsense from the idiots on the anti side without going off.

I think it's worth noting that Sen. Durbin at the end says "None of these rights (meaning the rights granted by the Constitution) are absolute." Cause see, I thought they kinda were.

Did you catch the part where she basically likened gun owners to child pornographers?

Well apparently anyone who owns an AR is akin to a domestic terrorist and/or mass murderer, so why not throw child pornographer onto the list too?

Almost makes me wish I was a Texan.

I am LOVING how NOTHING is bothering Cruz, and how he is getting teamed up on and doesn't lose his cool.

Does no one see it as funny that she says the Supreme Court interpret the law? Didn't the Supreme Court rule that "weapons commonly used by the military at the time" are protected against 2A infringement? If this is the case, go ahead and ban my semi-autos. I'll go pick up my m14 with it's "commonly used" 30 round magazine. HA! I win this loophole battle!

She's perturbed that she's being lectured (as she calls it), when in reality her hypocrisy (IMO) is simply being called out. She is (a) presuming constitutionality of the infringements to the uninfringeable 2A, and she (b) cannot explain the justification for why the 2A's infringeable in a manner in which the 1A and 4A are not.

Hm. Obfuscation, anyone?

Sad that others were jumping to defend her by disclaiming a need to discuss "books." :rolleyes:

I guess we need to congratulate the Republican members of the committee for not bursting out in laughter when she said she wasn't an extremist.
