11. He's not relying upon the actual language published in Parade Magazine and attributed to Burger.

 

He's only relying upon a secondary interpretation by Dailykos.

Dailykos says that Burger said those words, but check out Parade Magazine for Jan 14, 1990
http://www.guncite.com/burger.html

In contrast to what is being attributed to Burger by Dailykos, Burger actually said, among other things,
"Americans also have a right to defend their homes, and we need not challenge that. Nor does anyone seriously question that the Constitution protects the right of hunters to own and keep sporting guns for hunting game any more than anyone would challenge the right to own and keep fishing rods and other equipment for fishing -- or to own automobiles."

During all the gun debates since 1990, if Burger had actually said what is being attributed to him, wouldn't others (other than Dailykos) have pointed that out by now?

What I find, repeatedly, is shallow thinking and dishonesty by those who want to further restrict the private ownership of firearms. An act of falsely attributing an anti-gun quote to Burger by Dailykos or by anyone else is as dishonest as calling firearm owners "gun nuts."
