WILL GOOD STAND DOWN OR PREVAIL?
by Nicholas Purpura, ©2012, blogging at TPath
(Dec. 31, 2012) — “Good & Evil” exist, it has been with us since the beginning. All the legislation in the world will not deter violence committed by sick demented evil individuals. Adam Lanza suffered from mental illness, so where does the blame really belong? The legislatures that reduced funding for mental institutions releasing these nuts into the general public? Yes, to some extent. But mental illness is only partly to blame.
New York’s Mayor Giuliani tried to rid the cities of homeless lunatics and in stepped the ACLU to protect their rights, to hell with the public’s safety. Even if a few wackos were committed, the liberal left-wing psychiatrists, psychologists or progressive judges released them right back into the public arena.
It has been established Lanza was a nut case, but what about the second tragedy that took place in New York by a confirmed psychopath who shot and killed brave firefighters, who were trying to save lives and property? The killer, William Spengler, was a convicted felon who served 17 years in prison for killing his grandmother with a hammer more than three decades ago. So I ask, why was this degenerate released from prison? I’m sure the parole board thought they had a good reason. Whether it was the cost to keep him committed or the usual psycho-babble about “everyone needing a second chance,” as long as these decisions are made by incompetents, atrocities will continue.
Gun laws are unambiguous, for those educated in the public school system, that means completely clear in meaning, unable to be misunderstood. Both of these individuals referenced above, were restricted by law from buying even a B-B gun.
Who should we blame…….. liberal judges, progressive legislators, or maybe the reprobates in the media who refuse to report anything which controverts their ideology? I personally blame all these America hating, progressives-communists who would deprive Americans of the ability to defend themselves, their families, and yes, God forbid, their country, form an ever growing leviathan government or raids by Islamic terrorist groups.
Gun Control is Not the Answer
I’m sick of the blame game that firearms are the cause. The true blame lies with the left-wing mental midgets in our legislatures, the media and academia. For decades we have been told firearms are the cause and that more gun legislation is the answer. However, the indisputable truth remains, the more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens, the less crime. The statistics in every state and country bear out this statement.
Gun control will never stop the wanton killings, what it does assure, is that the criminal is given a free hand. Also history has shown gun control gives the government power over the people without fear of substantial resistance. Gun control is nothing but “people control”.
It is indisputable that the Second Amendment is positive law and therefore the Constitution would have to be amended before any legislation curtailing our rights to own firearms would be legal and constitutional. It has been all-out war against firearms since the setback in Heller v. Washington, DC, that supported the right to firearms ownership. Though a step in the right direction, that court ruling failed to go far enough.
What we have heard little of is the Nordyke v. King case where our rights were protected in a ruling by none other than the Ninth Circuit Court. That court, without much doubt, is most liberal court in the nation. It handed down a unanimous decision that upheld the Second Amendment. One would wonder if the these sitting Justices, as liberal as they were known to be, had the Obama Administration in mind when they cited their decision. The words of Justice Ronald M. Gould are worth repeating. He held:
“The right to bear arms is a bulwark against external invasion. We should not be overconfident that oceans on our east and west coasts alone can preserve security. We recently saw in the case of the terrorist attack on Mumbai that terrorist may enter a country covertly by ocean routes, landing in small craft and then assembling to wreak havoc. That we have a lawfully armed populace adds a measure of security for all of us and makes less likely that a band of terrorists could make headway in an attack on any community before more professional forces arrived. Second, the right to bear arms is a protection against the possibility that even our own government could degenerate into tyranny, and though this may seem unlikely, this possibility should be guarded against with individual diligence.”
The behavior of the Democratic politicians begs the question why 90% are hell bent on taking away our Second Amendment rights? Especially when it is the most important one that assures our freedom? It behooves every reader to review the “45 Declared Goals of the Communist Party” that were read into the Congressional record on January 10, 1963. Then ask yourself, have they met their goals? As the head of the American Communist Party has stated, “We no longer need our party, we own the Democratic Party.”
Idiotism on Parade
Following the Newtown, Conn. tragedy a parade of political stooges have demonstrated they have no understanding of the oath to the Constitution they swore to uphold. These reprobates are given twenty-four hour security at the taxpayers’ expense, but they could not care less about the “general welfare” of the citizens.
Politicians rarely follow the law, but for some reason they believe other criminals will. As a result, they and their families are protected and they have no problem leaving you and your family in the cross hairs.
Let’s review the wisdom of a few of the political intelligentsia:
At the top of the list New York Democratic Governor Andrew “Spooky” Cuomo who in an interview stated he intended to present the legislature a package that, are you ready, “could have confiscation as an option”. Paraphrasing, he also floated mandatory sale of personal firearms to the state, which in itself is confiscation. It may also include “permitting” – keep your gun but pay the state for the privilege. It’s a great way to suck out more money from the taxpayer and prevent those unable to pay from exercising their right to defend themselves.
Cuomo, if you will recall, while the head of HUD under the Clinton Administration, is the same liberal moron that blackmailed the banks into giving loans to individuals who had no ability to repay.
Despite what Obama has been saying, and the GOP has allowed him to say, that was the policy that created the housing bubble and the ultimate collapse.
And then there is Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), I’ll just quote this idiot, and let you draw your own conclusion. “One of the definitions of a nation state is that the state has a monopoly on legitimate violence. And the state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence.” This guy seems to have a monopoly on stupidity, but the question which begs to be asked here is, who’s dumber the elected officials in New York, or the voters who elect them?
Let’s not forget New Jersey’s three stooges; Governor Chris “Blunderbuss” Christie,” a progressive Republican (every political party has their share of fools) who doesn’t know diddle squat about the Constitution, the Second Amendment, or firearms. This overstuffed bundle of buffet delights doesn’t believe an armed guard in your child’s school, here in New Jersey, would avert a mass shooting. But those armed people guarding his rather generously sized posterior and the school where his children attend, well, that appears to be a different story. You see he is governor and very important. Your children? Not so much.
We in New Jersey are also blessed to have two of the most un-American Democrat wacko Senators. First, Senator Lautenberg (D), who needs to be propped up, have baby oatmeal wiped from his chin, and then told which way to vote on issues that will ensure the continued destruction of our Constitution. They will point him and his walker in the direction of removing your rights. Count on it.
Then there is everyone’s favorite Communist, Senator Menendez (D), who would have every illegal become a citizen. In fact he hires them regardless whether they are here legal or not. One has to wonder if this moron has ever looked at the statistics which list the number of violent crimes committed by his beloved illegals.
Where East Coast Meets West Coast
The Queen of stupidity, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D) Calif., has vowed to re-introduce the assault weapons ban at the start of the 2013 session. Sen. Dianne would limit gun sales, large magazines and or ammo drums. Her bill would ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively, clips of more than ten rounds. This self-hating liberal said, “The purpose of this bill is to get, weapons of war, off the streets”.
The fact is, following the 1993 ban from 1994 to 2004, the number of mass shootings actually rose. So much for the ban. It may shock this liberal to know statistics attest that most homicides are committed with hand-guns not so-called assault weapons.
Another one of her brainstorms, is to introduce a mandatory weapons buy-back program similar to the one introduced in Australia in 1996 that took 650,000 weapons, not off the streets, but out of the hands and homes of the law abiding citizens.
Her program would pay $500.00 per weapon. So let’s see, we have no less than 200-million firearms in the hands of the law abiding public. If only half of them, 100 million, turned them in it would cost the taxpayers $50 billion and would do nothing to prevent the next mass killer from doing his dirty work.
“Politically Correct”, suicidal, feel good legislation, based on emotion will result in more innocent deaths, but Feinstein and her liberal ilk won’t be phased or deterred from those policies.
Space doesn’t allow me to deservingly castrate the irrational behavior of the delusional Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who believes the banning of firearms and large sodas is the answer to a peaceful Utopian society.
It has been reported that Bloomberg is thinking of purchasing The New York Times. What a perfect match, a liberal newspaper working together with a Marxist government to destroy any remaining remnants of the Constitution. This “useful idiot” might want to see how much the First Amendment would mean if he is successful in helping them attain full control. Or he might consider asking a few journalists in Russia or Venezuela how their freedom of the press is going. That is, if he can find one not in jail or occupying a six foot hole.
I would remind Bloomy of another socialist regime and what it was capable of when leaders, not the people, are allowed to make law.
Here is an example: Herr Hitler and Herr Goebbels speeches upheld the firing of a Jewish movie director. In 1935 this procedure was formally entered into the criminal code: The Reich Supreme Court as the highest German tribunal must consider it its duty to effect an interpretation of the law which takes into account the change of ideology and of legal concepts which the new state has brought about. The court need not show consideration for jurisdiction of the past brought about by other ideologies and other legal concepts.
Loss of our Second Amendment, reminds us, or at least it should, of Poland and the Warsaw Ghetto and how Jewish heroes, with only handful of firearms held the Nazis at bay.
In light of the murderous history of the left, not only as relates to the Jewish people, but to all humans living under the thumb of totalitarianism, how could any sane being, Democrat or Conservative, want to disarm the American people?
This current administration may well be the most racist, anti-Semitic and decisive in the history of our Republic. Who in their right mind would hand over security of their family and their religious freedom to this cadre of Communists and criminals?
“Gun Legislation” allows death, and guns save lives. No matter where in the world a lunatic is hellbent on killing, only a brave, decent citizen with a firearm, stands between them and carnage. Firearms save lives and statistics prove, in the hands of good people, according to Justice Department data, they protect or save lives more than 2.5 million times each year.
Democrats like to say they are for women’s rights yet they would take away a woman’s right to protect herself. Irrefutable fact, approximately 200,000 women have defended themselves with firearms from sexual assault or abuse.
Are you aware that the one-world scoundrels at the UN, as well as the Russian and Chinese governments are urging the Obama Administration, to disarm their citizens?
If you are a liberal and know and understand what this disarming of America would do to our freedoms and still intend to stand by and let it happen, it is clear why Michael Savage defines liberalism as a mental disorder.
