“Providence council passes gun ban resolution”
The Providence City Council passed a resolution Thursday to ban semi automatic firearms in the city.
Council Majority Leader Seth Yurdin said the resolution is looking at semi automatic weapon [sic]. “Its things like revolvers, single shot rifles and shot guns are not affected by the ban; those are suitable for home defense or hunting.”
“We’ve seen a number of these mass shootings and many involve semi automatic weapons. They really don’t have a place in our homes or on our streets. They are designed for battle field use. So we are pushing for this,” he said.
Sadly, no push yet for a ban on criminals. Who will likely use their illegal semi-automatic weapons to great effect against law-abiding citizens whose right to protect themselves, or match the firepower of their likely assailants, is being wrested from them by temporary politicians aiming for cheap grace — politicians who presume to tell free people what it is they “need” and don’t need.
It’s part of the coup attempt. Which will only work if we actively surrender to it. Hell, the City Council doesn’t even have the power it’s trying to assert here.
Three words: tar and feathers. And two more: fuck you.
