Our all important vote can reject public officials who act like herding elephants in their unending, meaningless calls for gun control laws the second after a tragic incident occurs involving a firearm. They do not state facts or good reason. They do not make much sense. They engage in fear mongering. They exploit the victims. They tell more tales than Pinocchio could ever dream of.
Each time, they demonstrably fail to mention the very real and extant Second Amendment rule that is aimed at protecting our right to keep and bear arms. Instead the gun control herd assert the disingenuous claim that more firearm restrictions will prevent violent crime, when studies after study shows that gun control laws do not reduce violent crime rates.
So why create inane laws that serve no purpose except restrict innocent persons and their rights to keep and carry arms? Because bad politicians enjoy ingratiating themselves into our daily lives, workplace, families, health care, education, social lives, religion, and values. According to them, the less individual choices we have, the more they can control our money, our property, and our minds.
The more reliant the People are on the State, the more reason for the State to collect more taxes, provide security, and act as our guardian, protector; our “big brother” who knows better than us.
Just say NO to those who operate in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution by calling them out, voting them off, and informing the public of the truth. Here are just a few such officials, among many, who continue to show a complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution, and the Second Amendment in particular: New York State Senator Michael Gianaris, D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray, and Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.
Either they are too stupid to get the big picture that gun rights are needed to protect our liberty, or they are purposefully deceiving us in an effort to weaken individual freedom, in order to make us more dependent on the State, or both.
Gianaris, who is considered a “top” Senate Democrat represents city dwelling, downstate Queens County, but ramifications of his suggested policies will force all New Yorkers to adhere to outrageous gun control laws including “gun country” upstate New York.
Gianaris would like to limit handgun purchases to one per innocent person, per month; impose a 10-day waiting period for all buyers; and force gun dealers to report all firearm and ammunition sales to the state Division of Criminal Justice Services.
Collecting names of innocent people so that law enforcement can unfairly target them, later, is unconstitutional, and only harms innocent people who are protected by the Second Amendment. Gianaris is no better than Mayor Bloomberg, and is undeserving of holding office. This November, Gianaris has a pro Second Amendment opponent, Republican Aurelio Arcabascio, who says:
Agreed and ditto.
Vowing to preserve Washing D.C.’s strict gun laws, Mayor Vincent Gray insists that “when guns are available, people will get them, and use them for potentially tragic purposes”. Sure, so let’s target innocent gun owners, yea right! Gray who is already wrapped up in a campaign finance scandal, his own constituency is calling for his resignation. The Washington Post reports:
“Fifty-four percent overall say Gray should resign, while 37 percent say he should not and 9 percent have no opinion. Only three in 10 approve of the job he is doing as mayor. Forty-four percent say the city would be better off if he left office.”
Apparently Gray has issues with the First Amendment too. A private company in the District that trains gun owners how to be responsible, places a large billboard advertisement to attract costumers that says “Hey D.C. it’s time for your first shot,” and Gray goes ballistic. Intervening in private, legal business acts in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution and shows Gray’s true colors: he is an anti-Constitution, pro big government, power-hungry individual. Maybe Gray ought to start looking for a new job.
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is part mad, part unreal, and part stupid. A pro-gun bill that is moving in the state legislature has been converted by Quinn, if he has his way, to become a gun control law that reaches absurd proportions.
Making a claim that his bill would keep Illinoisans “safe” he calls on gun manufactures to ban possession or sale of nearly every semiautomatic rifle, pistol and shotgun made, including Glock pistols. He does not support concealed carry. He would like innocent gun owners to register every semi-automatic firearm and every magazine we own that exceeds a 10 round capacity, and further charge any price for such registration. Who exactly does Quinn expect to keep safe? Criminals
Remember folks, the Constitution is meant to protect the People from a government that is too big, has too many laws, too much regulation, too much law enforcement, and is too burdensome. If we really care about the Second Amendment then we must call them out, vote them out, and drown them out with our defense, which is h-e-l-l-o?-? The Second Amendment to the Constitution says “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”
There are no caveats, no exceptions, no fear, only the freedom to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our property from evil criminals; and also to protect our Constitution from evil forces that seek control, love power, and hate freedom.
