Quote of the Day

The right of the people with good moral character to keep & bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Yeah, that’s not what it says.

Comment to Judge strikes down recent NYC rules restricting gun licensing as unconstitutional

Even that modification is not really acceptable to NYC politicians. It is just the weasel words they use to try and sneak it past the courts. In reality almost everyone will be denied their specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms.

I think the politicians need to spend some time in prison to understand how far off base they are.

  1. A well-controlled populace being necessary to keep corrupt politicians in office, the right of well-connected allies to keep and bear arms shall be sold to the highest bidder.

    • Very short painful lifetime. Then the history books need to be scrubbed.
      There once was a group of politicians that used their power to disarm the people. They were evil and liked watching people suffer under their power.
      They were made the most severe examples of. Then their corpses were disposed of where they could never be remembered.
      This writing is the only testament they ever lived.
      Thus always the tyrant!

      Ya, just my little fantasy.

  2. And the judge just can’t quite bring himself to say; “It says shall not be infringed you idiots! What part doesn’t your little commie rat brain understand?”

  3. It is a truism that Power Corrupts and Absolutely Power Corrupts Absolutely.

    An strong argument could be made, however, that this is backwards, it is more the case that power attracts the corruptible.

    Either way, even assuming that the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms is properly restricted to those of good moral character, there is a larger deficiency in New York’s scheme: New York has not established any effective mechanism to ensure that those that would make those judgements are themselves of good moral character, either as hired or remain so throughout their employment. Frankly, if the state of New York could find the angels needed to operate this law, they should have employed those angels in the legislature, instead.

    If the state of New York contends that it is not necessary for an agent of the state to be of good moral character in order to accomplish their public policy purposes (and considering the body of evidence regarding New York politicians, this is more likely), the state of New York has not provided the necessary safeguards to ensure that the administration of this law by the most venial, corrupt villain would result in only the proper outcomes and no improper outcomes. The legislature has a very poor track record of making their public policy devil-proof. If they had this capacity, we could save a lot a lot on the costs of the public bureaucracy by sentencing hardened criminals to a period of years of hard paper-pushing.

  4. “The right of the People with good moral character, ability to make a large-enough ‘donation’ to the local politicians and police force, and enough friends high enough in the city government, to keep and bear such Arms as the City and State deem minimally acceptable, shall not be infringed, except to the extent necessary to keep the coffers full. Everyone else can piss right off.”

    There. Fixed it.

  5. The right of the people with good moral character, as determined by corrupt government officials, to keep & bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    • This is it exactly! Being considered of “good moral character” is about as objective, impartial and reasonable as allowing evil people to count all the votes.

  6. In NYC almost everyone is denied their specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms.
