Sen. Reid on This Week: I Haven’t Even Read Feinstein’s Legislation Yet
In an interview aired this morning on ABC News’ This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was asked to define his position on gun legislation.
Stephanopoulos asked him pointedly: “Many, including the National Rifle Association President David Keene, are wondering where you stand, right now, on the issue of gun legislation?”
Reid began his answer by telling Stephanpoulos, “I had guns from the time that I was a little boy…I have lots of guns, I keep them for sentimental reasons. I was a police officer, right over here is my badge. I was a police officer, I carried a gun, and that’s what I did to put myself through law school.”
To be fair, when a Democrat begins an answer in this manner, it’s hard to tell whether he’s sitting you up for the fall or whether he might, in fact, be getting ready to do the unthinkable and defend the Second Amendment–and if the rest of Reid’s answer is any indication, we are closer to the latter than the former.
