Quote of the day—Archer

They are not for “gun safety”, else they’d recognize that the NRA has the only truly comprehensive, child-friendly gun safety education program around. They are not against “gun violence”, else they’d be marching in places like Chicago and Baltimore, where the “gun death” rate is orders of magnitude higher than the rest of the nation. They are not against criminals getting guns, else they’d be demanding the Fed.gov prosecute every current straw purchase and NICS denial to the fullest extent of the law. They are not against guns being carried in public (open or concealed), else they’d advocate disarming police and federal agents in the course of their duties as well as average citizens.

None of these describe their real position. If they were honest, they’d just come out and say it: “We’re not against guns, we’re just against you having guns.” That’s a much more accurate description of where they’re coming from.

  1. Yep. Politicians prefer unarmed peasants. That is always what gun control is about.

  2. simple fact.

    and, the fact is, if they disarm us, they will still have guns. the elites, the privileged, the “oh, so very important” whose lives matter ever so much more than ours.

    proof of the latter assertion? look to new york city, w/ the sullivan laws. that law does nothing to inhibit the rich, the elite and the privileged from having guns. their minions may pack them, but, they’ve got ’em. count on it.

  3. That’s right; don’t listen to their asssertions. Look at their actions, which tell a different story.

    Where the left controls the local government, where they get their way, things go to hell, and then, rather than admit their mistakes and set out to change, to learn from those who have a better quality of life, they call for more of the same idiocy as got them into trouble in the first place.

    We call it “failure” but their actions tell us that the left sees high crime, corruption and a stagnant or crumbling economy as success. They want as much of that rot as they can get.
