The Left doesn’t like that Americans other than they can own guns. The noisiest of these Lefties have armed bodyguards, armored limos, and kids, homes & money behind armed guards.
But no one expects less than full-frontal hypocrisy from them anyway, so let’s leave that aside.
Though Lefty actors tell us guns are bad, onscreen they make millions showing us that guns solve problems created by violent bad guys.
What’s the problem? FBI statistics show us exactly the same thing: More Guns Less Crime.
Worst crime: Gun control cities.
Lowest rates of violent crime? Shall-Issue States. 24% lower. Shall Issue saves lives.
Americans have, own and are Constitutionally allowed to bear guns to protect ourselves and our posterity. But Hollywoodiots tell us practicing what they preach onscreen (the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, the source of ALL their income and lifestyle, and proven by national crime data) is dumb, stupid, redneck, anti-european and cannot be tolerated.
(Quick: What do you call a european who loves freedom & liberty? An “American;” he already moved here.)
See – they make $20M-$30M for 100 days of photography pretending to be someone else and so, as people not living in the real world, have moral standing to tell the adults in the community how to behave. Right.
Since no one died and put Hollywoodiots in charge of the natural right of any being to defend itself, their pre-adolescent babble really doesn’t matter to adults. I’m supposed to care what Julia Roberts thinks about protecting my family? Why? Or what Stallone, whose entire career – every single penny he spends to tell me I shouldn’t be allowed to exercise MY rights – is based on beating up or shooting bad guys, thinks are MY rights? Laughable. (Stallone’s opener right after Newton, while he was embarrassing himself with his anti-gun rants? “Bullet to the Head.” Seriously?)
Here’s the deal, and it really isn’t complex. The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land (Article 6). ALL Law in America is based on that document. The Left doesn’t like this, they want to tell us what to do, how to do, when to do. (Perhaps this is why they support islam – a complete totalitarian ideology.) And the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment tells the government we HAVE the right to keep and bear arms, and that the government CANNOT infringe ON that right. (No, the government didn’t grant it to us; we already had it and the States that CREATED the Feds did NOT grant to the Feds any rights – AT ALL – over our guns.)
But, of course, none of this tell-everyone-how-to-behave applies to the Left. Of course not. Heaven forbid! (Or …Obama? Streisand? Moore? Pelosi? …forbid, I guess.)
If the Left really believed in the Rule of Law (laugher), and if they really believed we shouldn’t be allowed to have guns, they’d just use their money and mouths to propose a repeal of the 2nd Amendment. Simple. One sentence: “The second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.”
That’s it. All they’d need. They are convinced that most people support this, that only a fringe of nutters actually owns guns or cares about their right to self-defense from a stronger, more violent, perhaps knife-wielding attacker – or multiple attackers. They pretend to be pro-woman, but want to prohibit the woman the only thing making men and women even on the street: a gun.
Yes, they’d rather your wife or daughter were battered, broken, raped and bleeding to death in a gutter listening to approaching sirens that will arrive too late to save her, than to have shot the rapist.
And since the Leftidiots have convinced themselves what they – alone – want somehow is “mainstream,” then all they need do is submit the Amendment, and, viola! Utopia! Nirvana!
And… crime rates will rise, murder will increase, rapes will increase, violent death will increase. But – the Left will get what they want: No guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens.
So they should submit an Amendment to Congress.
DiFi, she who would NEVER have been heard of absent a gun, should submit a repealing Amendment to Congress. All she would then need would be to get 67 Senators to vote for it, 291 Representatives to vote for it, and the elected legislators of 37 States to support it.
Since they tell us banning guns is “mainstream” there shouldn’t be any problem, right? Bloomberg has his billions. Dropout Gates has his billions. Go for it. Spread the word. Buy all the airtime you want, all the supplicant media supports.
So – the question of the day is: “Why don’t they do so?”
Simple: They KNOW that it would never have a chance of passage. Not in the Senate. Not in the House. Not in the States. They KNOW it is gun ownership that is mainstream in America, not gun banning. They are content with passing unconstitutional laws and having
idiots Democrats tell us those laws override the Constitution, regardless of Heller, McDonald, and Peruta.
They just don’t LIKE it; they can’t STAND the idea that those of us who work, raise kids, pay the bills, buy their fantasies … get to make our OWN choices; demand to be able to defend ourselves rather than await the State – too late – to help us instead.
Liberty is SUCH a drag for these people. Which is why, of course, they vote Democrat, THE anti-Liberty Party.
But… but… but… europeans don’t have guns! Yeah, and every time they get into a shooting war, which they regularly do, having been unable to live in peace for millennia unless sandwiched between other powers (USSR, NATO), Americans with guns have to come over and save them from themselves. (If you believe that our troops would have beaten Hitler’s had our guys not been raised hunting and shooting, you probably believe movies are real.)
If folks carried in Paris, would Hebdo have happened? Nope.
If folks carried in Sweden, would the near-constant rapes by muslims happen? Nope.
If teachers carried in Newtown, would that massacre have happened? Nope.
WHY did those massacres happen? Because the government prohibited the natural right of people to defend themselves.
…Because the Left put THEIR egos over facts – and the lives of free people. And the people LOST. THEIR. LIVES.
It isn’t that I mind Leftidiots making idiots out of themselves, preaching what they don’t practice, and fantasizing against all history and evidence that gun control reduces crimes. They ARE idiots, proving so again every time they open their mouths, so what would one expect? (Detroit? Obvious economic success story that requires repeating nationally, ask Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, Lurch…)
It’s that people actually pay attention to them.
If they don’t like the Second Amendment, the answer is simple: Put up or shut up.
