Marion Barry Robbed, Continues to Blame Guns

Marion BarryFamed D.C. mayor disgraced cum anti-gun activist Marion Barry was robbed at gunpoint by two teens he was helping by paying to carry groceries when they returned and robbed him. Even though they made off with his wallet, for some bizarre reason, Barry refuses to blame the perpetrators, instead focusing on the use of handguns while commiting the crime:

“I hold no animosities. I don’t even want you prosecuted, really. I love you,” he said.

Barry vowed not to move from his home in the council district he represents. But he said he will push for tougher gun control laws. Last session he offered a bill mandating a 10-year sentence for those caught with a gun. So far, a hearing has not been scheduled, but Barry hopes to see action on it this year.

“Violence is everywhere in our city and our nation,” Barry said. “These guns have got to go.”

Let me just say that if Barry had his own handgun nearby, he more than likely would never have been robbed in the first place (hello deterrent!). These kids probably picked him as a victim simply because they were aware of his anti-gun views (and the anti-handgun laws which have arguably led to D.C. being the most dangerous city in America).

  1. “These guns have got to go.”

    … and they will. Right into the hands of those who want to rob you at gunpoint, into the hands of those who are glad knowing that no “civilized” do-gooder would be packing… Into the hands of criminals.

  2. Would he have felt better if they robbed him at knife-point? What would his response be then? Or if they just walked up to him and threatened to beat him with their fists if he didn’t give them the wallet?

    Yeah, the crime wouldn’t have been so bad if they used something besides a gun…

  3. He says, “I don’t even want you prosecuted, really. I love you” then he says, “But he said he will push for tougher gun control laws. Last session he offered a bill mandating a 10-year sentence for those caught with a gun”

    Ummm….so he doesn’t want you prosecuted, but he wants you locked up for a much longer time? WTF?? Yeah, he “loves” them alright.

    He’s still rockin’ the crack pipe.

  4. “I hold no animosities. I don’t even want you prosecuted, really. I love you,”

    but next time if he has his way for just having that gun they will throw them into jail for a minimum of ten years. Sounds like love to me? Sounds like he doesn’t want them prosecuted? What a hypocrit.

  5. What ever happened to those self-defense classes that I recall from the 80’s that taught us the first rule to not being a victim was to not act like a victim? Why would anyone allow himself or herself to be deliberately and knowingly disarmed by the state? You are essentially allowing the state to broadcast to ever evildoer that you are a potential victim because of imposed gun-control laws. This is stupidity at its best. [SOAPBOX ALERT!] And then the law enforcement clowns go on TV when a citizen tries to fend off would-be attackers and says, “This should really be left to the professionals. We don’t condone private individuals defending themselves. If you’re attacked, you should dial 9-1-1 and wait for an officer to respond.” Well, Mr. Policeman, I got news for you. I ALWAYS have the right to protect myself, whether you’re on the job or not. I pay you to do it in my stead, not the other way around. I always have the right to protect myself and enforce the laws if you can’t–or won’t!

  6. The Supreme Court has ruled that when one calls the police, the police do not have to respond to your call, so protecting one’s self is rule number one because you cant depend on the police to come to your rescue. It’s a shame we pay taxes for protection but the police aren’t liable to protect YOU!

  7. Not only does he love them, at a press conference yesterday he said, “I was really kind of hurt, there’s sort of an unwritten code in Washington among the underworld, the hustlers, and these other guys that I’m their friend.” So…there’s an unwritten code that you don’t rob Marion Barry. How do the rest of us get this special status? Oh yeah, by having the right to carry a gun in self-defense. I can’t beleive he said this out loud!!! But then again, he’s said worse… http://www.skeptictank.org/barry.htm
    My favorite is the one about Lincoln freeing the slaves. I count at least 5 inaccuracies in it.

  8. I wonder if the mayor would have taken the same stance if the robbers were of a different racial persuasion……………….

  9. Racial persuasion? I didn’t know someone had to be convinced of their skin color.

  10. Who is going to be controlled if guns are banned? Is it not lower socioeconomic classes that become most vunerable? The criminals and wealthy that can afford to comply with the “special circumstances” clause that is certainly going to be included in any gun ban laws will be armed. The rest of us will now have to what will be considered contraband if we are going to protect ourselves.

    Most crimes are commited against average citizens. We are the ones the anti-gun fanatics are targeting, not the rich who have the special priveleges. What the hell is going on here?

    If I were living in an unsafe neighborhood where the gun toting gansters are in charge as opposed to the cops who won’t show up anyway in a neighborhood like that, I would be armed to the hilt as the Second Amendment allows. In my opinion, that is going to be the only way the citizens are going to take back their back yards.

    The Constitution applies to all of us, rich or poor.

  11. LOL on racial persuasion.

    Julian, my expreience indicates that you are absolutely correct with:

    Is it not lower socioeconomic classes that become most vunerable?

  12. “These kids probably picked him as a victim simply because they were aware of his anti-gun views”

    Ha ha. Right. The fact that he is an idiot and feeble were probably non-factors. They just knew he wasn’t packing! Ha ha ha.

  13. Well… considering his record with obeying laws I would not put it past ole’ Marion “Bitch Set Me Up” Barry to set the whole thing up to pushan agenda.

  14. Marion Barry Theme Song:

    No No No No, I don’t smoke it no more
    I’m tired of waking up on the floor
    No thank you please it only makes me sneeze
    Then it makes it hard to find the door….
