Dems Shoot Themselves in the Foot Again On Guns

Kurt Schlichter | May 13, 2013
Despite suffering the most humiliating rejection of his presidency, President Obama and the liberal establishment are determined to revive their failed gun control scheme. That’s a good thing. The Republicans should remember Napoleon’s warning that you should never interrupt an enemy when he is making a mistake. This mistake will cost the Democrats dearly in 2014.

We need to understand that the motivation behind the gun grabbing campaign has always been more than just naked political calculation. Certainly, liberals think it will help motivate their base and maybe shore up the squishy suburban mom demographic for 2014, but this is really a campaign fueled by emotion.

That emotion is hate.

This isn’t about dead children. If saving kids was their real motivation, liberals would have long ago allowed the police to end the daily slaughter in Democrat-owned war zones like Chicago, Detroit and Washington, D.C. No, this campaign is driven by elitist hatred for regular Americans who refuse to bend to their will, who defiantly live life on their own terms, and who stubbornly resist accepting the moral supremacy of the urban liberals who would rule them.

They want to show us who is boss, to put us in our place, to take away the proud symbols of – and the tools that protect – our independence for one reason and one reason only. They want to show that they can. They want to demonstrate that what rights we have come not from our maker but from them, to be granted or withdrawn as they please.

They want us disarmed, demoralized and defeated. They are furious that we refuse to allow it, but anger is a poor foundation for building strategy.

Their anger clouds their thinking – they simply do not understand their opponents and seem to feel that considering their opponents’ motivations, even if only to come up with a way to defeat them, are somehow beneath their dignity. Sun Tzu knew what happens when a general does not understand his enemy. He loses.

Look at the mainstream media’s reporting on the gun bill. Has there been, anywhere in the mainstream media, a comprehensive analysis of the substantive problems those opposing Toomey-Manchin had with the bill? Of course not – instead, the media regurgitates the clichéd 90% support figure for “background checks” as if 90% of the American people had sat down and parsed the legislative language of this particular bill.

People had real, specific concerns about this bill that the media utterly ignored. People were concerned that they could suddenly face felony charges for doing things they had always done, like lending a life-long buddy a hunting rifle or borrowing a pistol while target shooting. They saw that the alleged prohibition on a federal gun registry was not supported by the language of the bill. People were rightly suspicious at how this was another of those obnoxious “deals” rushed to the floor for a vote without the kind of committee analysis and development that we were taught in civics class is how a bill is supposed to become a law.

Moreover, people were angered by the bald-faced lies they were fed. It’s not reassuring to be told that “Nobody wants to take your guns” when key Democrats like Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Diane Feinstein and Mayor Michael Bloomberg manifestly do. Sometimes they seem to forget that YouTube tubed the era of the memory hole.

Nor do gun freedom advocates appreciate the cynical and intellectually bankrupt tactic of shutting down reasoned debate by dragging out the relatives of murder victims to scream at politicians. It didn’t help that not only did the bill fail to do anything that might have prevented Sandy Hook, but that opposition to it was portrayed as tantamount to condoning child murder.

People tend to get angry when libeled.

And those people made their concerns known, spurring their elected representatives to refuse to obey the elite’s command. This infuriated the elite, who consider themselves every senator’s true constituency. They are morally offended that senators might take their cues from voters back home in their own states rather than from the political and media mandarins on the coasts. So, the liberals are now taking their anger out on the red state Democrats who declined to commit political suicide to please the MSNBC crowd, which is great news for Republicans.

The era when gun freedom advocates resided on both sides of the aisle seems to be drawing to a close. Democrats are purging gun ban dissenters, and those voters will go GOP because they will simply have no alternative. Best of all, the red state Democrats who voted for gun rights are still in danger – not only are liberals taking aim at them but voters seeing the party pressure may well decide not to take a chance that their senator will “evolve” once he has won a new six-year term.

The anti-gun campaign has activated only two groups of people, the small circle of liberal media commentators and the huge mass of gun freedom advocates. A couple of out-of-state, paid Organizing for America activists waving pre-printed signage at a town hall is not a grass roots movement.

The only grass roots movement is for gun freedom. The NRA membership rolls are exploding, and there will be no sitting on the sidelines in 2014 for those concerned with gun rights. They will all vote.

Let the Democrats bring up another gun control bill. Let their hate cloud their strategic thinking. Let them keep making mistakes.

A trade publication on May 10 in this thread wrote:
Pirate Bay Takes Over Distribution of Censored 3D Printable Gun

A few days after the blueprints for the world’s first printable gun were published online, Defense Distributed has been asked by the State Department to pull them down, citing possible arms trafficking violations. The blueprints, however, are still available on The Pirate Bay and many other file-sharing sites, which adds a 3D chapter to the IP enforcement debate. The Pirate Bay says it welcomes the blueprints and has no intention of taking the files down.


Reporters sneak plastic 3-D printed gun aboard British train

By Cheryl K. Chumley
The Washington Times
Monday, May 13, 2013

Two Britain reporters were able to sneak a plastic gun made with a 3-D printer past security checkpoints onto a crowded Eurostar train leaving London for Paris, a security test subsequently described by their newspaper as an abject failure.

The Daily Mail sent the two reporters to check if the gun, which is capable of firing a .38 caliber bullet, could be snuck past "airport-style" security, which they successfully did. The paper denounced the security breach, which brought on an immediate review by authorities.

"Last night, the train operator began an urgent investigation into the security breach as experts called for airports and public buildings to review their procedures in light of our revelations," the Daily Mail reported.

Lord West, the former Labour Security Minister, pushed for more government oversight.

"These weapons are extremely dangerous because they are very difficult to detect with the methods we normally use," he told the Daily Mail. "This is going to be a real problem, no doubt about it. People are going to have to rethink whether we need more checks."

Defense Distributed, a Texas-based group, earlier this month test-fired the first gun - which it calls the Liberator 0 made with the 3-D printing technology. The group has loaded all of the weapon's blueprints online so anyone with a 3-D printer can download the 2 megabyte file and make a gun at home.

ANYTHING THAT MAKES CHUCKIE SCHUMER'S STOMACH CHURN IS WORTH DOING AGAIN!



My family was making rifles before we had an independent nation, and they made them in Switzerland before they came here.

There hasn't yet been a generation that did not make rifles and the skill is still being passed on.

Another young cousin contacted me this week for advice on getting started.

The dumbasses pushing this anti gun crap don't have a clue what they're trying to take on.

Don't think for an instant that the basic skills won't translate to the making of more modern guns, it's just a matter of wanting to do it.





By me.



By me.


By me.



Abraham Honaker

"COMMON SENSE" PREVAILS!


DA will not prosecute man arrested under SAFE Act

By: WNYT Staff
COLUMBIA COUNTY - The Columbia County District Attorney is making good on a promise not to prosecute a man arrested under the SAFE Act.

DA Paul Czajka told NewsChannel 13 he would not prosecute Gregory Dean Jr.

Dean was pulled over earlier this month after police say the light over his license plate was out.

Police say he also had a gun in his car.

While they say it was possessed legally, it had nine rounds of ammunition, which exceeds the state's new limit of seven rounds.

NewsChannel 13’s Dan Levy was in court for the decision.

As always, reviewing the full context expands understanding - and often as in this instance illustrates the difference between a journalistic news article and a TV sound bite.

                                 +++

"Although I believe that it is not for a district attorney to determine or make blanket policy," Czajka told Byrne, he said he would "decline to prosecute the unlawful possession of ammunition feed devices."¯

"There are a lot of factors that go into a decision that a District Attorney makes,"¯ Czajka said after the court proceedings.

"Given the circumstances of this case, it was my decision to exercise my prosecutorial privilege and decline prosecution of the charge until and unless a higher court rules on the law".

The case on the other misdemeanor charges (no light on tag, no drivers license) is continued until June.

http://www.registerstar.com/news/...-c426-11e2-9437-001a4bcf887a.html

Czajka, regardless of his personal opinion on the constitutionality of the maximum ammo possession part of the new law, was pragmatically and politically wise to avoid being the first test case - which first adjudicated case will be appealed all the way to SCOTUS, costing the taxpayers of the court's jurisdiction millions of dollars.

The law is absolutely ridiculous.

Which makes it relevant to point out again exactly what the law is.

The highlights of the Act, on the day it was signed:

1 - Background checks required for private sales of firearms;

2 - Background checks for sales of ammunition;

3 - Maximum allowed capacity of gun magazines is seven;

4 - Possession of a semi-automatic firearms with (a) a detachable magazine, and (b) a pistol grip, or (c) a folding stock, or (d) a flash suppressor, or (e) a bayonet lug is banned - i.e. one "military-type" feature in addition to the detachable clip - UNLESS it was already owned on the date the law was effective;

5 - The legal ownership of  above
(4) type weapons must be registered within one year;  

6 - Mental health professionals are required to report individuals whom they believe to be a threat to themselves or to others; and

7 - Authorized LEOs may confiscate the guns of individuals, who after due process are deemed to be a threat to themselves or to others.

Considering the U.S. Constitution, including the 2nd and 10th amendments, i.e. the states' rights vs. federal rights' separation, my judgments and opinions remain:

1 - constitutional, and I support it;

2 - constitutional, but I would oppose it in my home state;  

3 - constitutional, but I would oppose it in my home state;

4 - constitutional, but I would oppose it in my home state;

5 - unconstitutional, and will be ruled such in the courts;

6 - constitutional, and I support such a federal law (comparable to child abuse/neglect laws and privacy exceptions); and

7 - constitutional, but only with stringent due process and mandatory judicial oversight of each confiscatory action.

As I noted back in January when the law was signed, the Governor immediately noted that the hastily passage had resulted in a number of errors which the Legislature immediately began working on to amend.

The Governor also by executive direction exempted law enforcement officers from the magazine capacity limit of seven.

Your view of the Constitution is well known!

Very true - at least well known by anyone who reads and understands the writings of the Framers and Ratifiers of the Constitution (all of which are linked or/and quoted on the "We The People" Forum here at bumrejects).
