What a complete idiot. Don't expect the media to show this guy and the resident lefties are going to make excuses for him.

Only Republican conservative politicians can be racist or sexist.... so this must be a shop... the pixels tell me so.

that thing does have a point though. Lately, it seems like only white males need ammo... since they do all the shootings...:whiste:

I didn't hear anywhere in that where he said only white males should be able to buy ammo without being investigated. I guess if you really stretched what he said, you could balance that conclusion, but that's not what he said.

He did pretty much say that.

Nope, he said white males 50+ are the ones buying large quantities of ammo. He never mentioned minorities at all, Unless a women in her twenties is a minority to you.
He said that people who don't fit the "profile" of a bulk ammo buyer (anyone who is not a white, 50+ male) should be investigated.

He was using women as an example because it is slightly less blatantly offensive than saying that we should profile blacks and hispanics.

Especially since everyone "knows" women don't buy weapons :p

It sounds like he's taking a pro profiling stance. Which is about as Republican of a position as can exist. So I don't know why Republicans seem to have a problem with this guy.

He's a democrat, that's the problem.
I do find it funny that when a Democrat takes a position that is very common amongst Republicans, all of a sudden he's a horrible person for taking said position. Whereas most liberals are going to have a serious problem with this man's position here.

This law does nothing because everybody knows black people steal ammo rather than pay for it.
/racism.

I didn't know there was a profile for typical bulk ammo buyers. I'm guessing a lot of them are Glenn Beck fans.

That is a scary thought. If there was ever a group that didn't need to be allowed to buy ammo in bulk it's the mentally unstable. And seeing as that's the first requirement to being a Glenn Beck fan.

...without getting investigated by the police.

You can't make this shit up D:

well, you just did. All he mentioned is that in cases that reject an established profile--based on patterns from years of collected data--they provide an interesting point for investigation.

Yes, in light of what the data shows, a ~20 year old single mother (who could be white, black or yellow. maybe purple?) buying large quantities of ammo on a weekly basis doesn't jibe with established patterns.

that's all he said.

He didn't say it. The OP is lying.

Thank you.

The nice thing about old white guys buying up ammo is that they mostly just store it in their basements, anticipating the end of civilization as they know it, which will never come.

Which is not to say that I agree with deLeon or with what really is a Repub POV. Hoarding ammo is not the mark of a truly rational mind, nor should it be viewed as such.

I don't think it's fair to say they are hoarding it.

A lot of people actually do shoot guns regularly, you know...because they enjoy it. That requires a steady supply of ammo.

I understand that. OTOH, Spidey probably has a few 100K rounds, just in case...

Just sayin', ya know?
