PA Gov Double-Speak

Our wonderfully naive governor is apparently an expert at Orwellian double-speak. He's been in the news as of late showing his 'support' of the Law Enforcement community by pushing to make their civilian firearms illegal.

In a clever bit of double-speak.
CNBC: Assault Weapons 'Nuts' for Ordinary Citizens: Governor
"Assault weapons are difficult to operate, they jam easily. If you want a gun to protect your home it’s the last thing you should have." . . .
"These weapons have one purpose," added Rendell. "...They’re to kill and to maim, and they shouldn’t be in the hands of anyone else but the police and the military."
Now I'm a bit confused, maybe our governor can explain how this makes sense. 'Assault weapons' are poor choices for home defense weapons, but they should be used by the police and military?

Gov. Rendell, I thought you said you supported the police!

Now you want them to use weapons that are difficult to operate and jam easily?

And you say that these weapon's only purpose is to kill and maim but the police and military should have them, so are you saying that our police aim to kill and maim people?

This guy makes me ashamed to be called Pennsylvanian... when's his term up?
