GOV Cuomo puts foot in mouth over guns

Cuomo said "I want to do with guns what we just did with COVID-19." What is that? Killing 10,000 senior citizens in nursing homes and getting away with it? Sexually harassing about ten women and getting away with it? How is he getting away with these things anyway? Leftist corruption, that's how.

What does the emergency declaration do? It frees up money for police in his "defund the police" state. It puts emphasis on law enforcement. Ironic, eh? Now he can go after those magic guns democrats think commit crimes all by themselves. Moron.

Quotes on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Quotes on the Right to Bear Arms CLICK HERE
That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United states who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms...
-- Samuel Adams, in "Phila. Independent Gazetteer", August 20, 1789

"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."
-- Mohandas Gandhi, An Autobiography, pg 446

Every Communist must grasp the truth, 'Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.'
-- Mao Tse-tung, 1938, inadvertently endorsing the Second Amendment.

.. a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular individual citizen...
-- Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App.181)

I don't like the idea that the police department seems bent on keeping a pool of unarmed victims available for the predations of the criminal class.
-- David Mohler, 1989, on being denied a carry permit in NYC

The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose.
-- James Earl Jones
Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.
-- Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 US 436 p. 491

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.
-- Noah Webster
(Those) who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right (are) courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like.
-- Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School

"Both oligarch and tyrant mistrust the people, and therefore deprive them of arms."

Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.
-- L. Neil Smith

58 Shot in Chicago, The City that Never Learns. City run like an episode of "The Wire."

58 people in Chicago got shot over the weekend. 44 if you ask CNN. Why they're downplaying it is another story altogether. This isn't a record. That stands at 72 over the weekend of August 8, 2018, but Chicago never learns. Watching the mayor on TV this morning, I had a flashback to "The Wire." She was talking metrics. Bullshit stats on crime. Can't scapegoat the #NRA on this one. Can't blame a gun maker. The blame falls squarely on city leadership. Liberal democrat leadership. When is the last time they had a conservative in the mayor's office? It was William Hale "Big Bill" Thompson, who left office in 1931. Wait! Now I know why I channeled "The Wire" when I saw the mayor. Chicago really is just like Baltimore (and Detroit, Atlanta, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco). Democrats have run those cities into the ground, yet after all the wailing and gnashing of teeth over murders, urban blight, drugs, homelessness, etc., they just elect another, then another. It's Einstein's definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result). Nothing changes. Well, except for corruption and liberal privilege. That just keeps getting worse, along with the problems in the city. Why did they sweep the whole Jussie Smollet racist hoax under the rug? Why did people protest gun violence two years ago but do it in the Miracle Mile instead of where the crime is happening? Did protesting white shoppers have an effect on black crime? No. Did Rahm Emmanuel or Charles Daly or Harold Washington or any of those liberals even make a dent in the issues? No. I've seen "The Wire." Maybe Mayor Lightfoot should also.

Gun Nerds Listen Here!!! Rules to Live By...

Look, I'm a gun owner. I shoot. In fact. I shoot a lot. I own guns. In fact, I own lots of guns. Liberals would think I was a nut. Liberals would be wrong. I'm not. Some people spend thousands of dollars on things they like; shoes, clothes, fishing gear, hats, figurines, baseball cards, antiques, Pez dispensers, video games, booze, model trains, and on and on. No one bats an eye at a woman with 50 pairs of shoes she'll never wear, but find disgust with a man who has 15 guns and shoots them all. This isn't even counting the shotguns. However, there is one thing I still don't get, and that's gun nerds. They seem to be gamers that take their tricked-out AR-style rifle from their virtual video game world into reality. I see these guys at the range. They scare me. Oh, and annoy me. Some dress like wanna-be military contractors complete with keffiyeh around their necks and everything from the 5.11 tactical catalog. The others are just gadget goons. Mostly overweight. Usually around 22-25 years old. They trick out their weapons with every sort of sight and grip and accessory imaginable... then go shoot on the 10-meter range. Yep, it's sad. The maximum effective range for a 5.56 caliber M16A2 is 550 meters, and these nitwits shoot at targets close enough to throw the gun and hit. They're not alone. At a range near Naples (which I won't mention so I don't piss off a bunch of people with guns) there is a group of Mexicans who shoot at these same 10 meter targets basically without even aiming. It's like a bad Eastwood movie. One day they'll just point their guns at the sky and pull the trigger and shout Ayeee!!! in which case I'll hit the deck and then never go back there because someones going to get shot. I think they do it for the whole testosterone-laden nature of just slinging some lead and making some noise, but these guys need to listen-up too. I want the gun nerds and everyone else to hear me. These are basic rules for gun ownership. It goes far beyond the "I bought it for protection" bullshit and gives the post video-gamer a little perspective. T

The Constitution and the #NRA: The View from my Foxhole

I hear a lot of people talking about the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. Here's a bit of clarification: In the premable of the Bill of Rights, it says "The Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added." It is clear to me that the 2nd Amendment is meant to allow citizens to "keep and bear arms" to protect ourselves from the government. The founders were clearly taking steps to prevent the government from abusing its power. Politicians clearly hate this. Any time someone says the Constitution is out-dated, or not specific, I call bullshit. Sure, we can talk about a citizen's right to high-capacity magazines or weapons of war (I don't think people need), but the basic right to keep and bear arms should be maintained, as the amendment says "shall not be infringed." The laws regarding felons and mental patients already exist. Enforce them. It's tricky business because of a thing called the 4th Amendment (Rights against unlawful search and seizure). It's illegal to just bust in someone's house because they're a felon or mental patient to see if they're armed. Background check laws already exist. Enforce them. The Gun-Show loophole is gone. Enforce it. Automatic weapons are already illegal unless you are a licensed federal dealer. Bump stocks should be too. Provide mandatory gun training just like a driver's license, hunting license, or scuba certificate. NRA has been advocating all these things for years.

The Congress Gun

It's called the "Congress Gun." Makes a loud noise but nothing really happens. The stink makes you think it works but somehow maybe just missed you. When the smoke clears, your wallet is missing and somehow you bought another Congress gun. No matter how much you try, you can never get the gun fixed.
