NYT admission that democrats are anti-second amendment thugs

The NYT OpEd page carries an article by Lois Becket which all but admits that democrats manufactured the term assault weapon because they hate armed citizens, and it now being admitted because this author thinks they should ban handguns:

OVER the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned. That idea was one

Progtard narrative misleading yet again

Let me start by saying that the death of a child is a terrible thing, but I just can’t stand the progtard’s deceptive use of tragedy to rob us of our freedoms, especially when statistics tell a different story than the one they want you to hear. From this stupid article:

About 500 American children and teenagers die in hospitals every year after sustaining gunshot wounds — a rate that climbed by nearly 60

About time they reversed that stupid Clinton era law preventing military personel from being armed

Bill Clinton, whom told us he loathed the military, and whose administration treated the military like they were valet parking monkeys, pushed for and got a law that disarmed everyone on U.S. military facilities. Considering how the left looked down on the military at that time, I can see how these morons were scared of troops with weapons, and thought themselves pretty clever disarming them all. The media did a great job of keeping this … Read more

Why the LSM is not talking much about the NAVY yard shooting any more..

I think the first, and most obvious reason, is that the LSM can not use this incident to push for more gun control, without some serious problems for the government gun grabbers, from those of us that are not going to just swallow their bullshit without checking the facts. From the article:

In Washington, D.C. on Monday, Aaron Alexis gunned down twelve people. As if designed to preempt the scripted reactions of those who

Law abiding citizens are going to be punished, and it will not prevent another massacre

The idiot fucking leftards that run the state of CT have yet again managed to fuck over those of us that are law abiding, while doing nothing of any significance. And of course, they did it in secret, because they knew that if people found out how these fuckers where again shitting all over the 2nd amendment, they would not have been able to pull it off. From the article:

HARTFORD — After nearly

Obama Moves On Guns

Obama is announcing his new gun policies right now. I’ll post as I get updates. There are apparently 23 executive orders. I’ve looked over them quickly and I don’t really see anything terribly objectionable. Most of it is strengthening exiting law and the background check system. Here they are, with my commentary. None would have prevented Sandy Hook. But if you’re looking to reduce gun violence overall, they do address that.

1. “Issue a presidential

NRA In Earth Orbit

Last week, while I was away, the NRA had a press conference about the Connecticut shootings. Actually, it wasn’t a press conference since they took no questions. It was more of a statement.

A statement from the NRA in the wake of Sandy Hook required a degree of tact. I realize that the Left expected the NRA to come out, do a mea culpa and call for a gun ban … you know, the same … Read more

Selective enforcement of the law: a sign of tyrannical government at work

TMZ has and exclusive in which they claim that NBC, when they had their request to show an ammunition clip that is banned in D.C., denied or unlcearly sanctioned by the D.C.P.D, went to the ATF, which then somehow gave them permission to show it anyway. I am smelling a rat and think that there are tons of things wrong with this story.

First and foremost, I hear from several other people that the ATF … Read more

You can not legislate away evil or crazy.

Everybody is trying to make sense of this tragedy. Too many are so desperate for a reason other than we are dealing with someone that was mentally deranged, just like they want to pretend that evil doesn’t exist, because otherwise we have to admit that our supposed security is just ephemeral, that they are looking for anything to avoid having to grasp that we are never perfectly safe. Even the perp’s own father is Read more

Mathematical Malpractice Watch: Gun Deaths

Before we start, I don’t want to debate, right now, whether more or less gun control would have prevented today’s tragedy (although you can probably guess which way I lean). No, I want to illustrate how statistics get distorted to make gun control seem like a good idea.

(For the moment, I’ll ignore the suggestion that guns kill people all by themselves. I also have no idea if Dakin supports gun control or not. I … Read more
