Ted Kennedy and his friends in Handgun Control Incorporated think that the NRA's all wet, that American gun owners go off the deep end, and that America stands on a bridge over troubled waters because of private ownership of firearms. Ted and his friends Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Charles Schumer (D-NY), and HCI want the United States to get in the swim (and it's a shame that Mary Jo Kopechne couldn't swim) and ban the private ownership of firearms. Are they getting in over their heads, or will they make a big splash? Let's take a look at Ted Kennedy's own record on firearm possession.
- United States Senator (D-MA)
- Rich Playboy
- Elitist Hypocrite: Gun Laws are for Everybody but Him
Like many affluent playboys who inherit their parents' money and never have to work for a living, Ted Kennedy believes that certain laws apply only to the "peasants," not to the wealthy elite. Although Ted Kennedy supports gun control, his bodyguard was once detained for carrying a machine pistol into the Capitol. A machine pistol is something like a TEC-9, but it's fully automatic, i.e. a machine gun. (Actually, it was an Uzi.) This was, of course, in Washington DC, where private citizens cannot own handguns of any kind. The bodyguard also had a handgun. The bodyguard did not get into trouble, probably because of the rich Massachusetts senator's power and influence. Kennedy's fellow traveler Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has a permit to carry a concealed handgun. She also thinks gun laws are for "the little people," not affluent liberal Senators.
Handgun Control Inc. and its allies like to talk about the number of people who have been "killed by firearms" (as if these inanimate objects were capable of deciding to kill someone.) But we'll use the same language when we say,
Remember: fewer people have been killed by your responsibly-used firearms than by Ted Kennedy's cars!
Senator Ted Kennedy:
"I'm Handgun Control International"
Handgun Control International symbolizes domestic and international efforts (e.g. United Nations) to restrict firearm ownership by law-abiding American citizens. It is not affiliated with Handgun Control Inc., although their agendas are very similar.
