They knew and they did it anyway

Xenia’s boyfriend, John, pointed out to me the MP3s of debate on the recent New York gun bans. I mentioned the .50 caliber ban in my QOTD the other day.

From reading the bill one would assume they were totally ignorant of guns. But as I listened to the debate I found they carefully and accurately informed the sponser and others that rifled shotguns would be covered by this poorly written bill. The sponsor said it wouldn’t. When pushed on this the sponsor changed the subject. When asked “How many crimes were committed with .50 caliber rifles?” And again she repeatedly changed the subject. The truth does not matter to these bigots.

Listen for yourself.

  1. “The truth does not matter to these bigots.”
    When shown the facts, they do not change their position, indicating that their infringements are willful.

    It’s a mistake to assume that gun restrictions are motivated by issues of crime or safety. Their premises are founded on falsehoods, the results of their legislative actions are entirely negative, the Constitution prohibits them, and they keep doing it. The question is; who’s going to stop them, how, and when?

    That one is easy: aggression.
