Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer Stands By Second Amendment

TWG:  I’m not a fan of Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, but at least he’s taking a stand for our Second Amendment and pointing out the dangers of video games in creating these mass murdering monsters that slaughter innocent school children.  I still dislike  Schweitzer, but I’ll thank him for this.


As Dems Cave, Gov Stands by 2nd Amendment

Aaron Flint posted on December 18, 2012 11:46

In the wake of the horrific school violence in Newtown, Connecticut, the few prominent Democratic politicians who back the 2nd Amendment, like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. John Warner (D-VA), appear to be backtracking from their prior defense of gun rights.

Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer of Montana, a rumored 2014 US Senate or 2016 presidential candidate; however, is standing firm in his support of gun rights.

“I don’t want to sound like a terrorist here, but you give me 20 gallons of propane- I can do a lot of damage in a very short period of time,” said Schweitzer during Tuesday morning’s Voices of Montana statewide radio talk show. “If there are evil people they can use guns, or as we’ve seen in Russia, they can also use things like propane.  You can use natural gas.  Five gallons of gasoline and imagine what can happen.”

Schweitzer added that he continues to oppose efforts by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to reinstate an assault weapons ban, and aimed his ire in the direction of video game manufacturers:

SCHWEITZER: “They plan to bring that legislation back, but that actually wouldn’t change anything thing that happened back there in Connecticut in terms of what gun was used and what types of guns could be used.”

“This is evil and it has everything to do with mental illness and look I’m gonna pick on somebody right now.  You wanna pick on somebody?  How about those video game manufacturers, where an entire generation are glued to a screen for 6 or 8 hours a day while they are poking buttons and blowing other people up and shooting them in the face.”

    I agree w/Gov. Brian… I want to ask readers a question. How many of those responsible for 31 separate school shootings since Columbine practiced and ‘warmed up’ to the actual killing fields by ‘shoot em’ up video games’ like Nintendo? 

    I’ll bet most of these sick gunmen were lunatics at these types of video game controls. I heard something on the news saying that this quiet CT shooter was a video-game monster. You get my drift.

    There are 300 million guns in this country. No way can we reel em’ all back in. No way can we increase our background data checks WELL ENOUGH to positively alert someone that a wanna-be gun owner is a bit ‘different,’ etc… When guns are outlawed, then only outlaws will have the guns.

    I think that the culture of killing and violence portrayed by Hollywood film screenwriters and producers needs to change – and flat out.  I think that video warfare games need to be outlawed. Today, people don’t know if they are watching a ‘make believe movie’ or if they are witnessing raw, true documentary footage.

    The culture of film and movie violence plus Nintendo war games is the most logical place I know of to start making changes in society after this latest tragedy. Our second amendment isn’t going away. Performing better and more detailed background checks is a must. But it is a ‘violence culture thing’ which we are facing which hardens young minds who have practiced for thousands of hours on these video game killing fields.
