• Who Are They to Lecture Us about Guns?

    Whenever the left argues about their “support” for the 2nd Amendment, they argue they are only interested in “common sense” gun laws. This is funny. No, really. Think about it. People who know nothing about guns attempt to lecture (and legislate) about guns to people who know a lot about guns.

    One “common sense” gun law the left promotes are “assault weapons” bans. Liberals say, “No one needs military-styled, automatic combat weapons for personal or home protection.” Unless you are federally licensed, you are not allowed to own an automatic weapon (machine gun). Still, many “common sense” politicians have no clue which end of the gun you hold and which end the bullet thingies come out. Still, they lecture us.

    Former New York Mayor, and anti-gun zealot, Mike Bloomberg gave a seminar on the difference between semi-automatic and automatic weapons: “a pistol, you have to pull the trigger each time. An assault weapon (AR 15, et al) you pull the trigger and it goes (insert childlike machine gun noise here).” Nope! So-called assault weapons (semi-automatic rifles that “look” like badass military automatic rifles) shoot pretty much the same way as common hunting rifles—one trigger pull, one bullet.

    When talking about an “assault weapon,” California Senator Kevin de Leon used his expertise in firearms using this terminology, “…can shoot a thirty-magazine clip in ½ a second.” Hmmmm, I always thought a clip was another word for a magazine—you know, the thingie that you put the bullets into. At any rate, he’s about as clear on automatic vs. semi-automatic as Mayor Bloomberg. And Senator de Leon was flip flopping terms all the while handling the rifle as if he were a six-year-old child holding a fifteen-pound lobster by its claws.

    Diane Feinstein tells us that it is, “legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.” Maybe she meant “clips.” She appeared upset people can only use three rounds to hunt ducks. I know I’ve been retired a couple years now, but last I checked, it wasn’t legal to hunt humans with even one bullet. She must be thinking of the Black Lives Matter claim that police (I think cops still qualify as humans—maybe) are hunting young black men in the streets, so…

    Not to be outdone, the Executive Branch needed to make its own profound contribution to the great gun debate. Infamously, Vice President Joe Biden once advised his wife to scare intruders off by firing a shotgun off their back porch. In another brilliant stream of genius, Biden also advised that if people want to “keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Holy moly, Batman! Get a shotgun!

    So, if non-gun people ever wonder why gun people get so frustrated with liberal politicians claiming they have cornered the market on “common sense” gun laws, just do a quick internet search on some of the intellectual luminescence emanating from the liberal side of the gun argument. On second thought, if you value your sanity, don’t. Or better yet, have a few sips of your favorite alcoholic beverage first.

  • Does Hillary Hate Cops? Duh!

    I was listening to the Todd Herman Show on KTTH 770 AM yesterday, and he gave Donald Trump sound advice: Pick only a few of Hillary’s “difficulties” (out of an untold number) and hammer her on those.

    For me, Hillary Clinton sparks a paraphrase of noted French philosopher Jean Rostand: break one law, you’re a criminal; break a thousand laws, you’re a corrupt politician; break all the laws, you’re a goddess.

    One of the subjects Todd suggested was Hillary’s disdain for American law enforcement. I agree, Todd. Great idea—mostly because it’s so true. And it’s not hard to find examples of her cop-hating ways:

    Alicia Powe writes in DailySurge.com, “The incident [Freddie Gray] is just one of a number of controversial police-involved deaths of African-American men. Clinton attributed to their[Brown, Garner, and Gray] deaths to a racist criminal justice system and said their deaths were a part of a pattern.” She quotes Secretary Clinton, “From Ferguson to Staten Island to Baltimore, the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable.”

    Hillary’s statement is baffling when you consider two of the examples: The DOJ ruled Ferguson a justified shooting relegating “hands up; don’t shoot” to myth status. And, except for one officer’s trial which resulted in a hung jury, a black judge acquitted all of the officers who had been charged by a politically partisan, overzealous prosecutor. Even in Eric Garner’s case, there were extenuating and exacerbating circumstances brought on by Garner himself. These are Hillary’s examples of an “undeniable” pattern of police systematically harming black men?

    Just her opinion, right. So, what’s the big deal? Well, only that she may be our next president…. Thump! (Sorry, passed out for a minute. I’m okay now.)

    Anyway, I’ve been against leftists for a long time, so I opposed Hillary, going into this election. But I’m no huge Trump supporter, either. However, the amount of trivial crap I have to ignore to vote for Trump compared with the voluminous and serious crap Hillary supporters have to ignore to vote for her is stark (come on… the FBI told us she lied, U.S. secrets were compromised, and people died!).

    Moving on…

    The DailyCaller.com’s Derek Hunter quotes Hillary at the “Brown and Black Forum” in Iowa earlier this year, “I think that when you have police violence that terrorizes communities, that doesn’t show the respect that you’re supposed to have from protecting people in your authority.” Is she kidding me? “police violence terrorizing communities??? How insulting is that to American law enforcement?

    There’s more…

    John Hayward, writing in Breitbart.com quotes former Secret Service Officer Gary Byrne’s, speaking about his experiences with Hillary Clinton: “And the truth is that Hillary Clinton has become so angry—you mentioned about the security detail at the State Department trying to get away from her. Like you said, I talk about it in my book Crisis of Character, she gets so angry one day, sitting in her limousine, she strikes a Secret Service agent in the back of the head with a Bible. That’s not normal behavior. That’s bizarre behavior, and it’s criminal behavior. And that’s the real Hillary Clinton.”

    The officer has found it difficult to get the attention of the mainstream media. Hayward writes, “Byrne said the media blackout of stories damaging to Hillary Clinton was frightening, ‘because you’re never going to know what the truth is’ under a new Clinton Administration.” Mainstream media helping Hillary? Say it ain’t so.

    Byrne also talked about the broader issues of how law enforcement from local to federal view Hillary. He believes that FBI agents are upset about the way the agency handled the email investigation. Byrne believes agents and other employees of these agencies will continue to leak materials about Hillary that will vindicate the “stuff you hear in my book.” Byrne finishes with this: “Anybody that doubts what I say about Hillary Clinton: read George Stephanopoulos’ book, and read Dee Dee Myers’ book. They say the same things.” And those two are hardly right-wingers.

    And how about what was said today just before the debate…

    I have enormous respect for Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. In fact, I’ve said if he were Seattle’s police chief, I might still be working today (Anyone else just feel that collective shudder from Seattle’s liberal politicians).

    This morning on Fox and Friends (from: www.infowars.com, Sheriff Clarke made no bones about what he thinks about Hillary’s view of law enforcement officers: “Hillary ‘is a straight up cop hater.” He continued, “She has made it clear from the convention that she is all in with the criminal element, she doesn’t care about victims of crime, she’s a straight up cop hater, and so she is, like I said, rolling the dice on not having support of law enforcement. The problem for her is that middle America, mainstream America does not share her sentiment in having sympathy for criminals.”

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani backed Clarke’s assertion: “The Democratic Party has become an anti-law enforcement party. And this [Hillary refusing to even seek an endorsement from the National Fraternal Order of Police, but supporting anti-police groups such as Black Lives Matter] is the best demonstration of it.”

    Like Todd Herman says, if Trump can stay disciplined in tonight’s debate and limit his points to a few strong ones, such as Hillary’s disdain for American law enforcement, we can avoid allowing a lying, criminal security risk to contaminate the White House—the American people’s house.
