Taking A Stand - All Of Them

Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Fl) has demonstrated abilities above and beyond those of ordinary pols by getting in front of a camera and simultaneously taking every position I've heard so far on the Florida school shooting. Here's the money quote however:
But something — some freedoms are going to have to be given up to make sure that unstable people don’t have access to those weapons.
 Which brings to mind this one:
“Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.”
 This seems to be a misquote of something B. Franklin said. The misquote is better than the original.
 But click the link and see how many different positions Rooney takes in only one interview. The good news for him at least is that he got some nice face time on MSNBC. I suppose it will help him stay in office.
