How Long Until That Pol Says Something Stupid?

"As a hunter and gun owner, I believe that we should protect the Second Amendment right of law-abiding individuals to own firearms. As a dad and grandfather, I also believe that we have a responsibility to make our schools, streets and communities safe. We can do both if Congress steps up. Many of the president's executive actions will help reduce gun violence, but the policies that would have the greatest impact require congressional action."

There's just not a shred of evidence to support the notion that Congressional action will make anyone safer, and the assumption that we should assume government is a source of safety, when historically it is the largest source of risk, is too ignorant for adequate description.

It has become a surprise to me if I read something from a politician that even approaches profundity.  This one was standard fare pol speak.
