Turned on the T.V. this morning and I discovered something new. The dream of the left has never been about infringing on our Second Amendment rights after all. Why, the thought that this would be the case is simply preposterous. Anyone who believes that they wish to disarm every single person in America who might otherwise make the personal decision to purchase and brandish a firearm must be a member of some kooky fringe element.
Indeed, the new more palatable language meant to pass more smoothly with us who insist on keeping the deal implicit with our Constitution, (which is not a living document by the way, but very explicit in what its words, which thankfully have been written down, actually mean,) has changed from gun control to gun safety. It’s as if anyone insistent on bitterly clinging to their Constitutional Rights are some sort of gun toting child hunters just looking for elementary schools to shoot up in some sort of recreation of the children’s version of the wild, wild, west. It’s a shame that every school in the nation is designated as a, “gun free zone,” otherwise those lunatics that decide to run amok might put a second’s worth of thought as to where they would like to target.
I know it hasn’t yet dawned on anyone from the left, but why do you guys think these freaks pick on schools in the first place, and not for instance, the local gun shop? In a school, they know that they will be able to spend a good 15 minutes to a half hour with absolutely zero resistance. Adam Lanza shot himself as soon as he saw the first person with the capability to oppose him. How many of the children would have been saved had that person been a teacher in the first or second class room that he visited? Would he have even chosen a school in the first place had the mere possibility existed that private citizens working in that school were allowed to arm themselves?
Governor Andrew Cuomo gives us a bit of the gun safety gospel that we can expect to be hearing more of. We don’t need 10 bullets to kill a dear he’ll tell us, and he’s all in favor of gun ownership for hunting or other sportsman’s activities. Home defense, or personal defense are of course not mentioned. Defense of the citizenry against politically connected elites who would use their power and influence to strip the inalienable rights that we are all born with away, well that goes unmentioned too.
For Andrew Cuomo, and anyone else who agrees with his not all that clever straw man argument, as to how many rounds of ammunition I need, or since it is my right as an American citizen, simply want. That number would be what ever is north of the amount carried by anyone who may or may not break into my house, confront me in one of those, “gun free zones,” when they run amok, or help me sleep at night with the knowledge that I won’t die from a lack of shooting back.
All of this however brings us to another point. How dumb does the political left believe us to be? When I see the talking heads on MSNBC, NBC, CNN, CBS, CNBC, ABC, or anywhere else ask the question of who’s talking about taking your guns away, I keep looking around for the old person with the tip of their thumb stuck between their two first digits with that goofy expression that’s supposed to make me believe that yes indeed, my nose is no longer attached to my face. They’ve been trying to disarm us since the days of Woodrow Wilson. The right to keep and bear arms has been severely infringed upon, and the Supreme Court has even been forced to overturn several of those infringements within the last year or two. The Left has been undaunted in this dream of theirs, even while they are trying to convince us that it has never been their goal.
The message seems to be, the liberals who run things now have given up their century long dream of disarming private citizens, (cough cough,) and are now only using the current spate of emotional outpouring with the latest tragedy to promote safety, so that we may hunt in peace. Not content of course with the progress of usurping our freedoms by making our founding documents living things rather than the constraints on power that they actually are, many on the left have dropped the pretense entirely and started advocating openly for the removal of our Constitution as our national law. Nothing bad to see here however, move along, move along. Many of my liberal friends do not understand why I have such a problem with Barack Obama and his minions, not having paid the slightest attention to what he’s been up to for the past 4 years. They’ll probably begin to get it when when they’re forced into one of the reeducation camps for further explanation of why they should be thrilled with the food pellet they’ve been given to eat and a bottle of brown water to wash it down with. In Siberia, when news broke of Stalin’s passing, even those who had been personally imprisoned by Stalin cried, and all he did was to starve a quarter of the Soviet Union’s population to death, in order to prevent them from rising up against him. He started his reign of terror with the benign registration of all private gun ownership.
One last video with this one:
