Here is his direct quote (emphasis mine) from his appearance on Letterman the other day. Video and more after the jump:
“Here’s what you do with guns…you federalize all gun crimes, number one. You take it out of the local jurisdiction and state and you federalize it, right? So therefore if you’re caught in a gun crime holding up a 7-11, you get a mandatory 10 years if you’re convicted in a federal pen, on top of whatever Slurpee you stole…The second thing you do is, if you buy a gun, you have to register the gun — just like you have to register your car, alright. Now, people say ‘Oh, slippery slope, they’re gonna come–. Hey, this makes it easier for the government to take a thug who has a gun that’s not registered and put him in jail for 10 years.”
Hey Bill, here is a gut-check for ya… Letterman’s response to your plan to register guns is “I couldnt agree more”. How does that make you feel?
He also states in the video that the Newtown carnage was caused by the AR15, but then in the next breath says that he wants one to protect his own family with. BUT its not justifiable in big cities. WHOA? Seriously?
