Again from the patriot
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.
~ pastor Martin Niemöller
There are many variations of this poem that are now circulating the internet, perhaps the most frequent: They came for our guns…
Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal, Chris Murphy, Gwen Moore and Elizabeth Etsy held a press briefing on October 30th calling for more expansive gun control laws. The laws being pushed would include confiscation from many.
When the government goes to the CDC, and requests an analysis of cities throughout the U.S. for where the most useful gun laws are in place so that the CDC may make a suggestion on most effective laws or ones not already in place but needed, and the CDC comes back to tell you point-blank that no existing laws work, nor will additional laws, but you still press for more restrictions after the experts have told you it’s a no go; you might be a special kind of stupid.
The briefing that was hosted by none other than New York’s mayor Bloomberg, who wasted taxpayer dollars to make a new law restricting the sale of large soft drinks in his state because he couldn’t figure out that you can just go buy two smaller ones to equal a big one. (math has never been the democrat’s strong point) Bloomberg’s Mayors Against illegal guns organization still claims they have appeals for tighter control on guns. Mayors Against Illegal Guns? Was bored pantywaist politicians with nothing better to do than control your life already taken?
Sen. Murphy suggested the American public wants more gun control but Congress will not comply. Said Murphy: “There is a huge disconnect between what the American public wants and what Congress is willing to give them.”
Contrary to Murphy’s intimation, Gallup shows support for gun control has not only declined since January 2013, but with few exceptions has been in a decline since 2000.
Rep. Moore said guns should be “taken away” from certain Americans–including those who have restraining orders placed upon them. Although restraining orders are not always justly issued and certainly had nothing to do with the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting that united gun control proponents earlier this year, Sen. Blumenthal is proposing legislation to take guns away from owners when a restraining order is issued.
California led the way with this type of legislation, using all the data they have compiled via expanded background checks to track down and confiscate guns from owners with a restraining order. ~ Breitbart
I wonder, is the “American Public” that wants all this extra infringement the same elusive “90%” that we could never locate previously? They must live in the United 57 States of America that everyone keeps raving about.
