THE NEW YORK ‘SLIMES’ PUSHES FOR STRICTER GUN LAWS…

slimes

The New York Slimes, that provider of even less useful information than is ‘The National Enquirer’, now appears to be actively encouraging voters in those states where gun control on the ballot to vote for stronger regulations and all under the guise that more gun control equals less crime and therefore a safer populace.   Meanwhile, gun-controlled Chicago is nearing 600 homicides for 2016 alone.  According to ‘The Slimes’, “analysis” from George Soros-funded Center for American Progress shows that “gun fatalities in states with weaker laws are three times as high as in those states with tougher restrictions.” Based on this, the paper calls for voters in “California, Maine, Nevada, and Washington” to support gun control measures that will be on the ballot next month.

But something that ‘The Slimes’ fails to mention, because it would likely damage their argument, is that California is already one of the most gun-controlled states in the union.  It has comprehensive background checks — which eliminate a “gun show loophole” or “online loophole” — a waiting period on gun purchases, firearm registration, and gun confiscation laws, yet it also had the May 23, 2014, Santa Barbara attack, the December 2, 2015, San Bernardino firearm-based terror attack, the June 1, 2016, murder-suicide on the gun-free UCLA campus, and the October 8, 2016, high-profile shooting deaths of two police officers in Palm Springs.  So once again we have an argument being advanced by this rag of a newspaper that’s completely devoid of any logic or truth.

And it’s another very blue state, Washington, that also has comprehensive background checks — the very checks which Hitlery, Gabby Giffords, and ‘Nanny Mike’ Bloomberg-funded gun control groups pursue as being key to American safety.  Yet our nation’s most recent mass shooting took place in Burlington, Washington, on September 23. Five innocent lives were taken in Cascades Mall. On July 30, three innocents were shot and killed at a house party just north of Seattle, and in late February, the AP reported a gunman killed four people then himself in Belfair, Washington.  It’s as if these people don’t even bother to do the slightest amount of fact-checking regarding what’s really going on in places where strict gun laws exist, before opening their big, fat pie-holes.  Oh, that’s right, they don’t!

Ironically, much of the momentum for gun control continues to come from the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary.  Even now, new laws are being pushed under the guise of preventing such an attack, and ‘The Slimes’ says a total of eight states have passed “universal background checks” — the same thing as comprehensive background checks — as a way to keep a Sandy Hook-like attack from occurring.  But if the examples of California and Washington state teach us anything, it is that comprehensive background checks offer no hindrance whatsoever to determined attackers.  All that they offer is very much a false sense of security.  Because as has been said before, repeatedly, criminals don’t volunteer for background checks, only law abiding citizens must.

In fact, I think it’s worth remembering that Connecticut was ranked 5th in the nation for most stringent gun controls when the attack on Sandy Hook occurred.  The Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence lauded Connecticut for 5th “toughest” laws in 2011, and in 2012, Adam Lanza, the shooter involved, circumvented every one of those laws by stealing his guns and carrying out a heinous crime in a ‘gun-free’ zone.  Nevertheless, ‘The Slimes’ contends that more gun control will ultimately make us all safer.  Now I suppose if you’re some mentally challenged Democrat, stricter guns and ‘gun-free zones’ make a lot of sense.  But it’s best to keep in mind that if something makes sense to a Democrat then it’s highly likely that there’s going to be some pretty dire consequences for the rest of us.

Meanwhile, as mentioned earlier, homicides in gun-controlled Chicago so far this year are approaching 600 following another weekend of firearm-related death and mayhem. The Chicago Tribune reports that “at least 35” people were shot and wounded and another five were shot and killed between 6 pm Friday, October 7, and the morning of October 10. “Four people were shot within six blocks of each other over one hour Sunday night.”   The weekend’s violence brings the total number of homicides in the city to 578 year-to-date.  The Tribune also reported there have been a total of 3,368 shooting victims between January 1 and October 11, 2016 — that figure includes fatal and non-fatal shootings.  There were 2,988 shooting victims for the whole of 2015.

Violence in gun-controlled Chicago set a record in August 2016 with 472 people shot and 90 people killed, and that was according to ABC News.  It was the deadliest August in two decades and it came on the heels of the deadliest July since 2006.  ABC News also reported “nearly 12” people, on average, were shot every day in Chicago between January 1 and September 1.  And yet the call for even stricter gun laws has persisted despite the fact that it has been consistently shown that stricter gun laws do absolutely NOTHING to reduce gun violence.  When you make it increasingly difficult for law-abiding citizens to possess a firearm, allowing them to defend themselves, all you are really doing is to make those citizens little more than sitting ducks.  It’s a policy that makes zero sense.

It’s in the long term that should the American people ever be forced to give up their weapons, while at the same time the state is not, that’s when the American people become defenseless and the state really gets to work.  And once the state has its boot on your neck it will crush the life out of you.  Those who hold all of the power know full well that the biggest obstacle to their sinister plans is a well-armed free American public.  If I was a cynical person I would guess that Democrats need to load about 80 million Americans onto trains for their final solution of bringing in 100 million foreigners that will be slaves to the Democrat Party for the next 100 years, if not longer.  There is no other way to load that many people onto trains for the final solution but to take all the guns away first.

But in the short term, gun control has little to do with the level of violence that’s occurring because it’s 100% a demographic problem. Just look at the population make up of Chicago and that should tell you why there is so much violence.  Use a global map that shows global rates for violent crimes, you will notice a direct correlation, the darker the population gets, the higher the crime rates go.  It’s a cultural problem not a race problem. Take for example Nigerian Americans who excel in the US.  They are West African, which is where most African-Americans come from, and routinely outperform most other ethnic groups.  Most of the problems can be traced back to failed social programs, mass media and constantly being told no matter what you do, the man will hold you down.

This is the environment that has been created by the Democrats and that has continually allowed them to harvest what can only be described as being election gold for decades.  If black Americans were to ever actually assert themselves, Democrat power in this country would be brought to an end.  And it’s obvious that those in the Democrat Party realize this because of their efforts to open the floodgates to illegal immigration.  These are the folks who are essentially their electoral failsafe should the lightbulb ever go off in the heads of enough blacks and they suddenly realize how it is that the Democrats have been playing them for fools for over 50 years, if not longer.  Now I’m not saying that that’s ever going to happen, but the Democrat Party must be of the opinion that it might.

SHEILA JACKSON LEE SPEWS MORE ANTI-GUN DRIVEL…

US-POLITICS-IMMIGRATION-DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS

Sheila Jackson Lee, otherwise known as she who is perhaps the dumbest bitch on the entire planet, recently declared that American’s should not be permitted own automatic weapons.   Now when it comes to just how ignorant the esteemed Ms. Jackson Lee is, you certainly don’t need to take my word for it.  You really need to do nothing more than to simply wait for her to open her big mouth.  For example, it was during a speech this past Wednesday on the floor of the U.S. House that this genius said that we must also close gun loopholes and expand background checks and then tried to link automatic weapons to gun related crimes.  No keep in mind here this is the very same individual who thought America planted a flag on Mars.

As was recently reported in the ‘Free Beacon’, Jackson Lee attempted to use the fear-based “automatic weapons” phrase to make her point about reducing the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans.  Jackson Lee began in her little 5-minute diatribe by saying, “Simple legislation that could be passed. I think it is crucial in America that we do so, because the violence has many roots–housing, health care, poverty, but certainly it has the tool, and that is guns.”  And then she went on to say, “That is automatic weapons like AK-47s and others more sophisticated. America has a right to the Second Amendment, but the people of America have a right to safety and the prevention of gun violence in their community.”

It was pointed out by the Free Beacon, “that people frequently misuse the phrase “automatic weapons” when they are actually referring to “semi-automatic weapons.” Many handguns and sporting rifles are semi-automatic. The AK-47 is manufactured in both automatic and semi-automatic models. In a semi-automatic weapon you must pull the trigger each time you want to fire. An automatic weapon will fire as long as you hold the trigger, until you run out of ammunition. Rarely are fully automatic weapons used in crimes. In fact, their ownership is already highly restricted and registered nationally.”  And as we all know those who are most often prone to misuse the nomenclature of “automatic weapons” are Democrats.

In offering a critique of Jackson Lee’s comments, Charlie Hoffmann of the Free Beacon wrote: “Automatic weapons are not commonly used in gun crimes in America, however. Since 1986, the sale of newly manufactured automatic weapons to civilians have been banned. If an individual wants to purchase an automatic weapon, they have to go through a strict vetting process while also registering that weapon with the federal government. As a result, automatic weapons are also very expensive to personally own.”  Jackson Lee’s attempts to associate automatic weapons with gun violence are disingenuous, at best, and likely would have a difficult time passing even the most cavalier of fact-checks.  But that doesn’t prevent her from making them.

I would suggest that perhaps Ms. Jackson Lee spend just a bit more of her very valuable time trying to familiarize herself with the 1968 Gun Control Act which actually defines a semi-automatic weapon as being “any repeating rifle which utilizes a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge to extract the fired cartridge case and chamber the next round, and which requires a separate pull of the trigger to fire each cartridge.”  The key part there is the “separate pull of the trigger”, or in language simple enough that even Jackson Lee should be able to understand it, one pull equals one shot.  The law speaks clearly about what it means by the term semi-automatic. When it comes to the term “automatic,” a little inference is required.

And then there’s the 1934 National Firearms Act which defines a machine gun as being “any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.”  Note that part about more than one shot fired by “a single function of the trigger.”  Or in simpler language, again for the benefit of Jackson Lee, one pull equals many shots.  That’s the legal difference between a semi-automatic and a fully automatic weapon, a concept that Jackson Lee either fails to understand or one she very purposely misstates for purely political purposes.  Which is usually the case with Democrats.  When the fact don’t support their plans, they simply ignore them.

Jackson Lee is so dumb that she actually makes Nancy Pelosi appear smart.  A Democrat who represents Texas’ 18th congressional district, Jackson Lee once suggested during an address to her congressional colleagues that the Constitution and the American system of governance has lasted about 400 years.  She said at the time, “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”

Now ordinarily I wouldn’t give a rat’s ass about anything that Jackson Lee has to say on any subject?  But I’m always concerned about the Democrats continuous quest for never ending control and power that has created the problem of gun violence in America. They want voters who only support Democrats and who willingly allow them to fundamentally change our country to serve their purpose.  Instead of doing the right thing, the Democrats want only to take away the Second Amendment to our Constitution.  Think about it, if the Democrats really gave a damn, and really cared about gun violence and gun crimes they would join with Republicans in demanding that the thousands of gun laws already on the books be enforced.

And what’s really disgraceful is the fact that our liberal state-controlled media goes out of its way to perpetuate the Democrat propaganda by repeating ad nauseam the data concocted by Democrats but that has absolutely no basis in any actual fact. They go out of their way to paint the most dire picture imaginable, while ignoring completely how things got to be so bad.  Take for instance the city of Chicago, the city that has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, and yet has the nation’s highest murder rate.  This November the American people must overwhelmingly vote all these damn Democrats out of office.  They are determined to take away our Second Amendment, but even more importantly they are not serving the people!

IT ALWAYS COMES DOWN TO STRICTER GUN LAWS…

Gun Control 20

Chicago has always been considered by many gun control enthusiasts as being the stereotypical example of what the Wild West must have been like in those rough and tumble days before the law finally made its way west of the ‘Mighty Mississippi’.  But it’s these days that it most often is held up by those on the left as being the prime example for supporting what has become their never ending call for stricter gun laws.  Using Chicago makes no sense, because Chicago already has very strict gun laws.

Yet despite already having some of the strictest gun laws in the entire country, it has become so bad there that already this year there has been a total of 144 homicides, and with the city experiencing what is an 84 percent increase over this same time last year.  So the call for even stricter gun laws just wouldn’t seem to make much sense. But then I’m not a power hungry Democrat eager to use the senseless acts of criminals as a way to strip from law abiding Americans their right to own a gun.

And it’s according to DNAInfo.com that the first three months of 2016 have seen more shootings than the first three months of any year in over a decade.  With over 800 already having been shot so far this year, that’s over 80 percent higher than the 419 that March ended up with in 2015.  So I can’t help but wonder how it is that anyone can look at these statistics and still make the claim that stricter gun laws are the solution to what appears to be an increasing problem.  That’s nothing but nuts!

Mayor Rahm ‘Dead Fish’ Emanuel said recently, “We have a level of shootings and level of gun violence on the South and the West side that is unacceptable.”  Well gee, Rahm, no shit!  I guess it was as he set out looking for a new cop that he made this stupid comment.  But who in their right mind would step into such a situation?  Any intelligent person has got to recognize that what’s needed is NOT stricter guns laws, but just the opposite.  And that would be what a massive amount of evidence shows.

And it’s according to, of all things, The New York Times that the Chicago police may somehow actually have a role in the increased violence being experienced by the city, because, or so say the Times, they’ve pulled back from random stops policy they had put in place in years past. Many say these random stops helped reduce the crime rate due to the large number of guns confiscated by the policy. But since the CPD has pulled way back on such stops, these guns are not being removed from the streets.

As the Times wrote this month:  Since January, officers have recorded 20,908 instances in which they stopped, patted down and questioned people for suspicious behavior, compared with 157,346 in the same period last year. Gun seizures are also down: 1,316 guns have been taken off the streets this year compared with 1,413 at this time last year.  But who can blame the cops when city officials are the first ones to throw cops under the bus for altercations that may result from the policy?

But the truth is, Chicago is far from being the only large U.S. city seeing a rise in the murder rate.  A recent report in The Washington Post found the number of homicides in the country’s 50 largest cities is up 17 percent, the greatest increase in 25 years. The rates are higher over 2015, which itself was a hike over 2014.  And who is it, do you suppose, who is in charge of most, is not all of these major metropolitan areas?  Why it just happens to be members of the same party screaming for more gun laws!

Let’s face it, it’s the very same people who riot, loot, injure and burn down cities when one black dude gets killed by a cop are the very same brain dead morons who are murdering each other in record numbers. And yet they wonder why nobody gives a crap.  Black lives matter, or so it would seem, except to other blacks with a gun who are shooting other blacks in record numbers.  Yet notice how all the solutions to this problem center around one thing, the confiscating of guns from law abiding citizens.

And let’s just go ahead and dispel those misconceptions that anyone might still possess about the “Wild West”.  A study was done about that some years back, and found that the per capita death rate by guns (in the Wild West in its heyday) was LESS than that of New York City at the time of the study.  And does that not make sense?  As Robert Heinlein said “an armed society is a polite society.”  Would you REALLY walk up to a dusty cowboy sipping a whisky and with a Colt strapped to his hip and talk smack?

Chicago has some of the toughest, if not the toughest, gun laws in the entire country. And you have ask, how’s that working out for them?  “Oh, but that’s because guns come in from all those places that have weak gun laws.”  It’s not because of other’s gun laws, weapons are coming into Chicago because there’s a market for illegal guns, it’s called a Black Market (and no, not a racist term). Black markets happen because criminals have this peculiar habit of not following laws or getting background checks.

THOSE LIKE WILLIAM BRATTON ARE A MENACE TO PUBLIC SAFETY…

Bratton

When it comes to more recent New York City politics it’s pretty obvious that the nut doesn’t fall very far from the tree.  But since he has served in both Boston and Los Angeles, Mr. Bratton’s rather leftward slant regarding gun rights, besides coming as no surprise, likely made him the ideal choice as, current communist mayor of ‘The Big Apple’, Bill de Blasio’s police commissioner.  This is his second shot at being the city’s top cop, the first time around Bratton was forced to resign while under investigation for accepting unauthorized trips from corporations as well as individuals.  Which I guess, was seen as being a resume enhancer.

Anyway, it was on Communist News Network (CNN) earlier this week that New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton was discussing terrorism and Donald Trump, and after watching a clip host Don Lemon played featuring Trump saying that Americans are under threat from foreign terrorists coming in to this country, Bratton responded by saying that it’s Americans and guns that are actually the biggest problem we face.  This has become the typical mantra of many on the left as they work to increase their efforts to rip from the hands of law abiding Americans that which is something constitutionally guaranteed to them.

Frankly, it’s this kind of idiotic drivel, that Americans are somehow more of a threat to the country than are these Muslim terrorists, that is so offensive and on many fronts.  But is especially grotesque when hearing it from the top cop in the city that is now home to a somber memorial at Ground Zero. Terrorism, both domestic and foreign-born, has nothing to do with the availability of guns. The notion that the Second Amendment enables terror of any kind is demonstrably false — because that is what he is saying: not that we face a threat from criminals who use guns, but we face a threat from Americans “who have access to firearms.”

It’s all the gun’s fault, you see. It’s the EASY access.  It’s not the threat from Islamic terrorists.  A threat that is on the rise, is brutal, leaves many casualties in its wake, is frequent, and has consequences well beyond just the tragic deaths and injuries.  And too many of our leaders, mostly Democrats, seem not to be all that concerned.  And you would think that a police commissioner should know these things.  That a New York City police commissioner, especially, should live and breathe them.  What a despicable, politically correct, factually bereft rant from a committed leftist gun-control fanatic. How typical. How utterly predictable.  How dangerous.

But Chief, if guns are illegal in Chicago, what the Hell is going on there?  How many gun related deaths have already occurred there in this still very young year?  Hold on a minute, I’ll tell you:  As of yesterday (30 Mar) 128 were shot and killed, 673 were shot and wounded.  Now I would argue that if guns were legal in ‘The Windy City, both numbers would not only be lower, but would likely be significantly lower.  But then, Bill, you don’t want to hear that.  But look, this latest example is but one more reason, on what apparently is a very long list of many, why Bratton is hated by the NYPD rank and file, and basically anyone with an ounce of sense who knows him.

Bratton’s idiotic premise that “Americans with guns pose a bigger threat than terrorism” is so patently false and for any number of reasons.  Not the least of which are: 1) It is physically impossible to eliminate the 300 million guns in America; only the LEGAL ones can regulated, but it’s the ILLEGAL ones which do the most damage. 2) Firearms accidents, etc., like far more pervasive automobile accidents, are relatively constant year-by-year, whereas terrorism has demonstrated at least the potential to grow exponentially, as it has recently in Europe. 3) And then, as we saw in San Bernardino, Americans WITHOUT Guns are really nothing more than soft targets for these murdering Muslims.  Imagine if just one of those victims had actually had a gun.  How much lower would the body count have been?

And what’s scary is the fact that this imbecile is responsible for keeping New Yorkers safe.  New Yorkers should be afraid, VERY afraid!  The biggest threat to our Constitution and our way of life are people like this guy who think our ‘rights’ are the problem.  My guess is this nut believes that Mike Brown was “shot with his hands in the air”.  It’s the dumbing down of America.  It should frighten every single American that complete morons like this boob are able to get into such positions, being responsible for things that are so far beyond the capabilities or their intelligence.  We insist upon granting to these losers on the left far too much control over our lives.

OBAMA’S PLAN REMAINS THE COMPLETE DISARMING OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE…

324

Much the same way that he told us, over 30 times, that we would all be able to keep our doctors if we so chose, Barry is now busy telling anyone stupid enough to believe him how it is that he really has no intention of trying to take guns away from law-abiding citizens.  And that the ONLY purpose behind his recent announcement of executive actions the supposed purpose of which is to make it more difficult for criminals to buy weapons is simply to make ALL Americans SAFER.  And if you’re stupid enough to believe any of that then I have some prime ocean front property in Arizona that I can let you have real cheap!

And so it was then during last night’s idiotic little town hall meeting/program “Guns in America” broadcast on the Communist News Network (CNN) that Barry said he would be happy to meet with the National Rifle Association (NRA), but that the conversation would have to be based on “facts and truth and what we’re actually proposing, not some, you know, imaginary fiction in which Obama is trying to take away your guns.”  But it was by making such a stipulation that Barry essentially disqualified himself from taking part.  Because, as well know, anything Barry says on the topic of guns is neither true nor factual.

It was during this obviously staged event on CNN that Barry put forth the patently dishonest claim that the ONLY reason gun sales spike every time he makes a gun control proposal is not because he intends to go on a gun grab, but because the NRA has convinced its members that that is what he is in fact doing.  That is profitable for gun manufacturers, Barry said, and “It’s a good advertising mechanism, but not necessary.”  But if his intent is not to carry out what he describes as being some sort of gun grab, then why is it that he so obviously chooses not to enforce thousands of laws already on the books?

And according to Barry, “Part of the reason this ends up being such a difficult issue is people occupy different realities.” Barry used the example of rural areas where hunting and sport shooting are common and inner city areas where gun violence is rampant.  He said, “There’s the reality that there are neighborhoods around this country where it’s easier for 12- and 13-year-olds to purchase a gun, and cheaper, than to buy a book.”   Just who is it that Barry thinks is selling guns to 12 and 13 year olds?  Now while there may be Democrats out there who are stupid enough to believe such drivel, not many others will.

And then it was Barry, in a New York Times editorial published just before the event, who called on voters to not support candidates who are against new gun-control measures and said he’ll follow suit.  Barry wrote, “I will not campaign for, vote for or support any candidate, even in my own party, who does not support common- sense gun reform.”   And he went on to say, “And if the 90 percent of Americans who do support common-sense gun reforms join me, we will elect the leadership we deserve.”  No, what we deserve are leaders who abide by the Constitution instead those spending their time trying to circumvent it!

Barry goes out his way to the claim that the NRA has worked to whip up fear among its members that every mass shooting means the government will come for guns. And he cited their absence at his town hall, claiming he’s willing to debate NRA leaders.  On Tuesday, in announcing his actions, Barry said he recognizes the Second Amendment rights of gun owners. He said, “It’s there written on the paper. It guarantees a right to bear arms.”   And he said, “But I also believe that we can find ways to reduce gun violence consistent with the Second Amendment.”  He claimed the gun lobby has been “holding Congress hostage.”

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi, leader of House Democrats, recently came rushing to Barry’s defense saying he moved to expand background checks because Congress has failed to move on legislation to tighten a law that allows some gun sellers to do business without putting buyers through a criminal background check.  It was during a news conference that Pelosi said, “How many more years does Congress have to refuse to act?” But I seem to recall that Democrats did nothing to enact new gun control laws back when they held substantial majorities in both the House and Senate.  Instead, their focus was Obamacare!

And while I’m quite sure that Barry would like to have us all believe that a majority of the American people actually do side with him in his endeavor, it’s just the opposite that seems to be true.  You see, it’s a majority of Americans who actually oppose his continuing use of executive powers to enact everything from new immigration policies to his more recent effort to enact his new gun control initiatives.  And Americans don’t believe that Barry’s controversial move will reduce, in any way, the number of mass killings that have rocked the nation in recent months.  So says a new Rasmussen Reports.

And it’s according to the Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely U.S. voters that 58 percent of Americans say the government should only do what the president and Congress come to agreement on in gun control matters.  Only 34 percent of those surveyed believe the commander-in-chief should take action alone if Congress does not approve the initiatives he has proposed.  Rasmussen also found only 21 percent believe Barry’s executive order, which extends federal government oversight of gun sales, will reduce the number of mass shootings. Another 59 percent disagree, and 20 percent said they are not sure.

Those polled were quizzed on the need for additional gun control — and the results were sharply divided. Some 45 percent believe the United States needs stricter gun control laws, but 50 percent disagree.  However, most have long believed the government needs to do a better job enforcing the gun laws already on the books. The new poll also found 79 percent of voters believe it is more important for Congress and the president to work together to achieve what’s best for the country rather than to stand for what they believe in.   But they tend to blame Congress more than the president for preventing that from happening.

Look, the bottom line here is that anyone who is foolish enough to actually believe that Barry, and the Democrat Party as a whole, has anything in mind other than the complete disarming of the American people, is beyond naïve.  And not only that, but it’s these very same people who seem to have absolutely no problem, for whatever reason, in acting as willing accomplices, only too happy to help the Democrat Party remove what is truly that last of defense against absolute tyranny.  And it is in that way that they truly do represent that which can only be described as being a very clear and present danger to the rest of us.

ELIZABETH WARREN AND THE NRA…

warren 01

It was recently that Elizabeth Warren, aka Pocahontas and proud Democrat, the senator from that bastion of leftwing lunacy known as Massachusetts, had some pretty strong words for the National Rifle Association (NRA).  And I will leave it to the reader to decide whether her words came in spite of, or perhaps because of, the success the organization has had when it comes to defending our Second Amendment Rights.  Either way, one can very plainly see that she is far from being a big supporter of the group.  But then, that’s hardly to be unexpected.

It was apparently during a recent conference call organized by White House Senior Advisor, and Muslim insider, Valerie Jarrett that Warren said, “The NRA can be defeated and the NRA will be defeated.” She then went on to say, “The president has shown that change is possible but it is our job in Congress to show that there are many of us who are willing to fight and that’s how you get sensible gun reforms. We will get it.”  I guess that would depend on what one’s definition of ‘sensible’ is.  And I’m pretty sure that my definition doesn’t match up well with old Liz’s.  Just sayin’.

The ever-diabolical Ms. Jarrett teamed up with the liberal champion, Warren, and other Democrat members of Congress to promote Barry “Almighty’s” most recent executive actions the purpose of which is to further erode that which our Constitution guarantees to every single American citizen by way of the Second Amendment.  And it was during that same call that old Liz argued that Congress has had “all the time in the world” to help implement gun control, but, even Democrats did nothing during their time in the majority.  Only because they saw Obamacare as being more important.

And ‘Crazy Liz’ went on to rant, “If the Republican Party would rather work for the NRA than for the American people and if they won’t do their jobs to keep our children safe then somebody else has to step up.”  She recalled that some Democrats had “particular problems” with previous gun reform measures in the wake of Sandy Hook, but suggested that Democrats would be far bolder in the future.  She added that Barry’s executive actions on gun control were not only “smart” but “reasonable” and would make a “life or death” difference for children.

Liz said that she was “proud” that Massachusetts has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, but admitted that those laws weren’t enough to prevent criminals from getting guns from gun shows and from other states with weaker gun laws.  Liz said, “This is not about politics, this transcends politics, this is about doing what is right for our kids.” And she added, “The president has opened that door and I hope the American people will walk through it.”  But she so very wrong, because it’s all about politics and has virtually nothing whatsoever about public safety.

Meanwhile, and most likely much to old Liz’s disappointment I’m quite sure, it would seem that Barry’s goal of bringing about tighter gun restrictions might actually come to face that which I think can safely be considered to be a pretty tough hurdle to get beyond.  And that would be, much to the chagrin, none other than the American public.  You see, The Wall Street Journal has recently reported that public support for the National Rifle Association has actually increased, and pretty significantly, over the course of the past several decades.

You see, thirty years ago it was 27 percent of Americans who said that they supported the NRA.  However, fast forward those three decades and that number had jumped to 38 percent as of this past December.  Also something that’s rather noteworthy is that the number of American who opposing the group has fallen.  And it is that support which has lawmakers in Congress, where Republicans still hold majorities in both houses, at least for another year, unlikely to do take any action that could be seen as somehow restricting gun ownership.  Right now it’s a risk not worthy of taking.

In fact, registered voters in a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll in December said they were more worried about government going too far restricting gun rights than not going far enough. It was the other way around in 1995.  Not surprising NRA support is strongest among Republicans, where 59 percent back the gun lobbying group, compared to only 11 percent among. But among independents, 41 percent have a favorable view as compared to only 19 percent who view it unfavorably. More people have a favorable view of the NRA than of either political party or.

So there you have it.  Another case where we have a Democrat, in this case Ms. Warren, dealing in what’s really nothing more than political rhetoric versus the NRA working hard to expose what the Democrats are really up to while at the same time working to ensure that every American citizen is able to hold on to their constitutional right allowing them to keep both themselves and their families safe from harm.  And at a time when Barry is releasing criminals from prison and allowing terrorists to freely enter this country, now is not the time to disarm Americans.

OBAMA HITS THE DECK RUNNING, DETERMINED TO TAKE YOUR GUN…

Gun Control 20

Well as you all know Barry “Almighty” recently returned from his most recent of many taxpayer funded family vacations “fired up” and ready to hit the deck running in this the final year of his reign.  He met today with his far-left compatriot, Loretta Lynch, to prepare for what we are told will be, tomorrow, an unleashing of a whole new round of executive actions.  This would be in spite of the fact that a newly released Gallup Poll shows that, much like Barry’s deep concern over ‘climate change’, “guns/gun control” ranked near the bottom of Americans’ most pressing concerns in 2015.

In fact, it was according to this new poll that guns/gun control ranked 19th out of 23 top problems facing the country during the last year.  According to Gallup it was only one percent of respondents who mentioned guns/gun control as a concern for most of the months in 2015. Having said that, mentions did spike to 7 percent in October and December following mass shootings that occurred in those months.  Concern most likely driven by the fact that many in our state-controlled media chose to talk about little else.  However, the overall average for the entire year came to roughly 2 percent.

And what should come as virtually no surprise at all is the fact that Americans were most likely to mention some aspect of the federal government in 2015 when it came to being asked to name the country’s top problem. It was 16 percent of those responding to this poll that listed Government/ Congress/Politicians, and 13 percent chose the “Economy in general.”  And it was 8 percent who said unemployment is the nation’s top problem.  And, for the first time since 2007, immigration was among the top four most frequently cited problems, being mentioned by 8 percent of those who took part in the poll.

And it was in rounding out the top 10 that we had various other problems each averaging 5%, including ethical/moral decline, race relations/racism, terrorism, the federal budget deficit/debt and education.  Gallup noted that 2015 marks only the second time since 2001 that no single issue averaged 20% or more for the year. However, 34% of Americans named at least one of several specific economic issues — including the economy, unemployment, the budget deficit, inflation and others.  That in and of itself may demonstrate pretty clearly just how mucked up Barry has now gotten things.

And as I have said before Barry’s plan of attack here in going after the guns of law abiding Americans seems to be one in which, much like his same approach to our immigration laws, he allows gun laws already on the books to simply go unenforced, in the hope of actually encouraging those types of shootings that he can then exploit in his effort to create far more restrictive gun laws.  But that premise makes no sense when one considers the fact that Chicago, home of some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, had 442 gun homicides with nearly 3000 people being shot in 2015.

And just because this may be his final year in office, I think we would be rather foolish to assume that, as long as we have a squishy Republican majority in Congress, Barry will not be trying everything that he thinks he can get away with.  Besides gun control other issues on Barry’s ‘To Do List’ that he will surely be working hard to take action on include ‘climate change’ and open borders.  I pray our country will be able to come back after what has occurred during what will have been eight years of this man. We simply cannot afford to elect Hitlery as president, or any other Democrat for that matter.
