Senator Robert Casey’s Closet Secret

Senator Robert P. Casey, (R-PA), is not only an ignorant arse, he is dishonest, disingenuous, unworthy and unfit to represent the people of Pennsylvania. Adding insult to injury, he is a closet supporter of Diane Feinstein’s bill S. 150, which is intended to limit and deprive Americans of their Second Amendment rights.

I have included following my rant, his full correspondence to Eric Nagle, who holds elected office on a local level in PA. He wrote Casey urging him to not support legislation that would trample the Second Amendment, not in his official capacity, but rather as a concerned PA resident.

In my response to Mr. Nagle, I said “Casey’s letter and comments were bull crap. They were a complete and utter display of his profound ignorance.”

In my January 22, 2013, Daily Rant entitled “Weapons of Choice” (http://mychal-massie.com/premium/weapons-of-choice/) I, in unambiguous detail, reveal the true culprit in the increasing spate of shootings, which I am certain will ultimately include those that Casey references at Sandy Hook. The problem is that taking on major drug companies means that politicians like Casey and his Congressional cohorts who comprise Congress would be taking graft out of their own pockets. I openly defy Casey to call me a liar. I dare Casey to say he doesn’t benefit massively from Big Pharmas that produce the drugs accompanied with potential side affects that include, but are not limited to, extreme agitation, hallucinations, thoughts/tendencies toward violence, homicidal ideation, thoughts of suicide, etc.

That being said, tens of millions of people own and enjoy high cap, semis with detachable clips and they’ve never committed a violent act. Casey’s closet support for the Erebusic rewriting of the Second Amendment by bypassing the Constitutional parameters for doing same is a condemnable.

Casey is looking for a way to support Feinstein’s bill without fear of political consequence. He is a typical politician eagerly looking for a way to promote himself at our expense.

We do not need invasive measures into our medical records. We need strict measures on psychotropic medications that are being dispensed like candy — due to the well known, horrific side affects associated with same.

The people of Pennsylvania need to clearly and emphatically make it known to Casey and every politician in their Commonwealth that any attempt to change or restrict their Second Amendment rights will be met with public resistance and the end of their political career.

And that is a message that every person who believes in the Constitution regardless of the state or Commonwealth in which they reside must make clear. It’s time for us to say NO.

HERE BEGIN SENATOR CASEY’S LETTER TO MR. NAGLE:
Subject: Response from Senator Casey
From: “Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr.” <senator@casey.senate.gov>
To: **********
CC:

Dear Hon. Nagle:

Thank you for taking the time to contact me about recent proposals related to guns. I appreciate hearing from you about this issue.

As you know, on December 14, 2012, an individual in Newtown, Connecticut forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire on teachers and staff in the building. In total, the perpetrator murdered 20 students between the ages of six and seven years old, as well as six adults, many of whom heroically sought to stop the shooter and save the lives of children. Like many Americans, I was deeply affected by the scope and brutality of this act. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

The motives that led to this senseless massacre will likely never fully be comprehended. However, I believe that all public officials have a responsibility to work to prevent such an event from occurring again. This incident reflects a complex problem that requires a comprehensive strategy, including funding for law enforcement officers and the mental health care system. Too many individuals with mental illness are not receiving the services they need and tragically, sometimes a small number of these individuals turn violent. I have supported access to affordable and accessible mental health services for all Americans and I will continue to review proposed solutions to improve our mental health system. As lawmakers consider an appropriate response to this challenging issue, we should consider all of the factors that could prevent such heinous acts.

As you may know, I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Pennsylvania has a fine hunting and sporting tradition, and I will defend the right to bear arms as it is enshrined in our Constitution. I will continue to back the right to bear arms for purposes of self-defense, recreation, sporting and collection. However, I also believe that the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School highlights very serious dangers posed to public safety by the misuse of certain weapons and technology originally developed for warfare. According to reports, the shooter was able to kill many children and adults very quickly because he possessed a military-style semiautomatic weapon. He also allegedly used magazines containing up to 30 rounds of ammunition and carried hundreds of rounds more. After much reflection and careful study of the issue, I have decided to support a federal assault weapons ban as well as legislation restricting high capacity magazines. In light of what occurred at Sandy Hook, these are two measures that will lessen the chances that this will happen again. Before supporting such a law, I would first and foremost ensure that it did not unduly abridge the right to bear arms as established by the Second Amendment.

Our Nation has already begun a critical dialogue as we examine what steps must be taken to prevent this type of tragedy in the future. On January 17, 2012, President Obama unveiled a package of proposals to reduce gun violence, which included strengthening the system of background checks, reinstating the assault weapon and high-capacity magazines ban, improving school safety and expanding access to mental health services. I look forward to reviewing these proposals in detail and to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to address this complex issue.

On January 24, 2013, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California introduced S. 150, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013. This legislation would explicitly permit the possession of affected firearms that were owned prior to the bill’s enactment; firearms that are manually operated; firearms used by military, law enforcement and retired law enforcement; and antique weapons. Further, this legislation lists 2,258 hunting and sporting rifles and shotguns that are entirely exempt from the ban.

FAMSU160This legislation would ban the sale, transfer, manufacturing and importation of all semiautomatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one of seven specified military features. S. 150 would further ban semiautomatic pistols that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one of certain listed military features, as well as ammunition magazines that can accept more than 10 rounds. The Assault Weapons Ban would also regulate the transfer and storage of permitted, grandfathered weapons and allow local law enforcement to use certain federal funds for voluntary gun buyback programs. The Assault Weapons Ban was referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, of which I am not a member. Please be assured that should this legislation come before the full Senate for consideration, I will have your views in mind.

Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about this or any other matter of importance to you.

For more information on this or other issues, I encourage you to visit my website, http://casey.senate.gov. I hope you will find this online office a comprehensive resource to stay up-to-date on my work in Washington, request assistance from my office or share with me your thoughts on the issues that matter most to you and to Pennsylvania.

Sincerely,
Bob Casey
United States Senator

    We, too, received the same response from Casey. Our response, in part, to him:

    AR-pattern rifles are simply semi-automatic arms which operate in the same manner as other civilian arms but happen to look like military M-16’s. S.150 is simply a predictable list of proposals that those in your party and on the anti-gun left have circulated for years. Almost without exception, none of the provisions in S. 150 would have prevented the Newtown shooting and “at least one of certain listed military features” does not make a simple semi-automatic arm an “assault weapon”.

    We regard your support of the proposed bans as breaches of the Second Amendment and the Pennsylvania Constitution.

    Further, the Second Amendment is not about hunting or even self-defense and, if you think that “military, law enforcement and retired law enforcement” should be able to own weapons that otherwise law-abiding citizens should not, you completely misunderstand history and the purpose of the Bill of Rights.

    We do hope that you will reconsider your support [....]

      gma: very well said…they don’t want to stop the crimes…they want to take away our second amendment rights be redefining them as you accurately point out…

    You are so right Mr. Massie. It is the money of big pharma that they will not compromise. Our Constitution, common sense, God, constituents? pffffttt! Casey and his ilk do not live in the real world and regardless of the label he has draped himself in he is a lock-step politician. Never let a good crisis go to waste! Legislate! And I remember reading that one of the reasons we were able to win our revolutionary war was that we had weapons on a par with England. Interesting.

      deborah: their systematic dismantling of our constitution should be an indictable offense…

  3. Adele Macy Fletcher February 13, 2013 at 6:21 pm #

    Yes, my husband & I, from PA, got the same form letter from Mr. Casey. Sealed our vote. Mr. Casey is a Democrat- not a Republican as you indicated.

    • Mychal Massie February 13, 2013 at 4:50 pm #

      adele macy fletcher: not that there’s a difference between the two parties but yes casey is a democrat…some how my error slipped through the crack…

  4. JoAnn Dolberg February 13, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    It used to be that we could tell the difference between "good" and "evil;" not so much anymore. "One bad apple……."

    • Mychal Massie February 13, 2013 at 4:53 pm #

      joann dolberg: actually we still can tell the difference between good and evil…casey and those like him are evil and we’re not…

    Before any of these psych’ drugs were “ok’d” by the FDA to be put on the market, the producers of these drugs already knew they had ghastly side effects. How did they manage to get them marketed, anyway? The quiet trick of manipulating the clinical trials that Big Pharma (BP) provides to the FDA. The drug companies, not the FDA, do all the testing on their own drugs. If we read that a drug was “independently tested by outside laboratories” look for the signature on the check that paid those labs. It will be a BP check. There is a fine art to these clinical trials: they can be shaped and molded like a wax nose. In other words, they can be made to sing love songs to the bank accounts of BP.

    Follow the money trail, and the answers will appear.

    • Mychal Massie February 13, 2013 at 4:59 pm #

      annie hamer: the money trail leads to casey, those in elected office, and those in positions to influence what gets approved…take for instance ritalin…how long have its damaging effects on children been known…and yet they continue to dispense same like candy…only now it’s delivered in a cocktail with other psychotropic drugs…

    Casey doesn't even realize what he is doing, and we have about 300 more of them interfering with our lives that are in his same boat.Obama is expecting mass riots and civil unrest already. I think he is prodding us to do same.

    • Mychal Massie February 13, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

      jeanne ballard: casey knows damn well what he is doing…he’s lining his pockets and micturating on the constitution…

  7. Marshall Smith February 13, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

    When will these idiots learn that you can't license liberty and constitutional rights!

    • Mychal Massie February 13, 2013 at 5:03 pm #

      marshall smith: wrong question…the right question to ask is when will we the citizenry stand up enmasse and say NO…
