Commissioner’s Scandalous Speech led to Rejection by MEPs

Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska ( European Commission ) claimed 100.000 deaths in ten years by legally-held firearms and said law abiding citizens should not own semi-automatic firearms at all.

Snippets of Commissioner’s speech:

  • I think that first we have to limit the access to automatic and semi-automatic firearms.
  • Such assault weapons are not necessary for sport shooting.
  • Hunters in some member states are not concerned at all by our proposal.
  • We have evidence from the last year that during the last decade 100.000 people in Europe were killed by such weapons. Homicide … they were… murdered by using weapons which were at home.
  • Our proposal does not endager sport shooters, really not.
  • Kalashnikovs are military arms. Even when they are semi-automatic or non-automatic at all I am convinced such firearms should not be authorized for sports.
  • To many people were killed, so be more open-minded on this topic.

MEP Richard Sulik: Withdraw the directive!

 

Snippets of MEP Richard Sulik’s speech

  • The European Commission is trying to restrict people’s personal freedoms.
  • No terrorist is going to get a weapon at a normal dealer.
  • I thank the rapporteur for her hard work to remove the nonsense from the proposal.
  • Ms Bieńkowska suprised me yesterday, when she said, that we don’t need so many weapons. Surely citizen’s freedom should be more important than the Commission’s opinion.
  • The ladies and gentlemen sitting in the Commission seem to be acting like gods.
  • I would be happiest if the whole directive were to be withdrawn.
