Safer Streets 2011: Conservatives now reaching for gun control?

Comments

    Well done John! But will the liberal / politicans get it? My guess is no but we can hope and pray that some will listen!

    Please don't think that Peter King represents any trend of conservatives. He's from Long Island. NRA rated F. He does not represent the conservative position on gun control.

    Peter King (R) New York is a long time RINO. He is certainly neither a Republican nor a Conservative.

    The American public has learned several valuable lessons over the last few years.

    9/11 taught us that if you let an armed hijacker into the cockpit everybody on board and a lot of people on the ground are going to die. Look at the few attempts since then.

    VT taught us that hiding under a desk when an armed lunatic is calmly walking around shooting people just gets more people shot. The lunatic in Arizona was taken by potential victims down with two full magazines still available.

    Waco taught us that when an appointed buearacrat and an elected official want to pump up their importance/power they have no reservations about mobilizing their "select militia" to burn 80 or so men, women and children to death and the media will back them up. Fear the "Authorities" and "Only Ones" or you may get killed for DOA (Disrespect Of Authority).

    No one has a stronger interest in protecting you than you yourself. And they won't be there when you really need them.

    p.s. A better idea for the coward King would be a full set of bomb disposal armor. After all, the people he would have enforce his safety bubble would need to be carrying scary GUNS.

    If you carefully study US history you will discover that politicians and bureaucrats of all parties and persuasions most assuredly want to limit our ability to defend ourselves, or think for ourselves. They want those they plunder and murder to be helpless cattle, not thinking human beings.

    This false "left-right" and "liberal - conservative" nonsense is just diversion.

    Do you own your life and body? Do you think everyone does or should? Do you want to own other people? Those are the relevant questions. Remember that ownership equals control. If you don't control it, you don't own it.

    John -

    Love your stuff, but Charles Nichols is right . . . Peter King is no conservative. He pushed various gun-control schemes in the last Congress as well. He's from New York for cripes sake!

    At the risk of being irreligious, to misquote Jesus: "Will anything good ever come out of New York?"

    Nah!!!!!

    Great article, John. Your comment about the left being against liberty in America is on the mark. I could never fathom how these same people who were screaming "Power to the people" during the 1960's could be FOR gun control. These same people who say a woman has a right to an abortion, because it's her body, decry her use of guns to protect that same body.

    Thanks, Guys, every single one of you is correct. Part of understanding our present position is in reading those who hate this country, from Marx to Alinsky to daily anti-freedom editorials. They all have the same smell on their breath. Each has their own hang-ups, and they become the aggressor.

    I think America -- being as fair-minded as we are - is beginning to discern who is hostile to them and who is defending America and their interests. As long as we can articulate clearly the proper defense of our way of life, we ought to prevail. The key is in pointing to our observance of due process in contrast to the haters' abuses of due process, for a start.

    Second, we need to remember that Fair does not mean equal. Pundits who seem to divide criticism into equal parts of balme to both side does not know what fairness is. Sometimes, real fairness is that we win and they lose. Uh.. let's see.. I think the right word is Survival.

    We won't survive if we think the the idea of Fairness means giving ground to those hostile to America.

    Maries Parente reminds us that the moment we sit down to negotiate what we already have, we lose.

    In fact, there are no two sides to our sovereign liberty. Real Fairness means refusing to recognize that there ever could be two sides to our second amendment.
