Rick Santorum Uses His Sick Daughter To Score Political Points With Gun Lovers

In what might be one of the most cynical, most politically calculated moves ever, Rick Santorum today announced that his three-year-old daughter Bella is now a lifetime member of the NRA.

From CNN.com (http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/04/13/santorum-daughter-bella-now-lifetime-nra-member/) :

“(My wife) Karen and I are life members of the NRA, and we wanted to announce today that…now Bella is a life member of the NRA, too,” Santorum said. “I hope it is a long life.”

Bella Santorum has a rare genetic disorder called Trisomy 18. Her odds of ever being old enough to shoot a gun are slim, but still, I doubt there’s anyone out there who doesn’t wish her anything but a long and happy life. Until today, I have seen no one try to turn Bella into political fodder and unfortunately, the person who did that was her own father.

Santorum dropped out of the presidential race earlier in the week. Today’s move will benefit nothing but a potential congressional run in 2014 or a presidential run in 2016.

Jeezarse would hav been in the NRA.

.......Jim Shea April 15, 2012 The NRA is a victim of its own self.

The organization has been so successful at wooing and intimidating state and federal politicians that it's running out of gun deregulations to sling at them.

Just look at some of the personal protections citizens in many place now have thanks to the NRA's fire power:

Being able to take your gun with you to college.

Being able to bring your piece into a bar (which can give new meaning to such terms as "buying a round" and "getting loaded.")

And as we have seen in the Trayvon Martin "stand your ground" case, being able to shoot someone if they make you nervous.

Oh, did I mention they have also made it possible to bring your gun to church? Surely, Jesus would have packed.

So, what's left?

I suppose the NRA could push legislators to allow prison inmates to carry guns. I mean, is there a more dangerous place than a prison? Tell me guns wouldn't solve the shank problem.

No, if you eliminate from consideration grade schools and high schools — although gun-toting kids would certainly impact bullying — there is only one major frontier yet to arm: the friendly skies.

I don't think there is any question that allowing airline passengers to bring weapons aboard planes would make members of the flying public feel safer … particularly from stressed-out pilots and flight attendants.

Including guns among the carry-on luggage would also eliminate the need for airport passenger screening, full body scans and pat downs. This would be especially appreciated by toddlers and octogenarians........

Vatican 'Cardinal Rambo' defends passion for guns

VATICAN CITY - A top Vatican cardinal with a passion for shooting defended his rich collection of rifles and handguns in comments on Thursday to Italian newspapers that have already dubbed him "Cardinal Rambo."

"This passion for weapons is long-standing. I used to go to shooting ranges. Unfortunately since I've been at the Vatican I had to stop," Domenico Calcagno, head of the Administration of Vatican Patrimony, told Il Fatto Quotidiano.

"It's innocent. What I like above all is repairing weapons," he said.

The 68-year-old cardinal owns at least 13 weapons including the famous 357 Magnum made by Smith & Wesson and a Hatsan shotgun, according to the website Savonanews from Savona in northwest Italy where Calcagno used to be the bishop.

The website said Calcagno was also a keen hunter and had several rifles.

Calcagno said he kept the weapons in a locked armoury at his home in Savona but that did not stop press reports from making ironic digs at the unusual hobby for a cardinal of the Catholic Church, which advocates non-violence.

The NRA, and the Republicans of today, are equally NUTS, and equally full of greed, and have no conscience about the damages they do to our society!

Their Pro Life BS is a joke!
