Self-defense and the defense of a free people against government tyranny is a HUMAN right

Why do the Democrats hate blacks and the poor? And I’m being serious here: this should be the rallying call of the pro-second amendment groups.

To drive some of these points home — which are either largely ignored or disingenuously spun and then dismissed by gun control advocates — allow me to concretize them. In the Colorado legislature, the proceedings of which I carried live here, the Republicans proposed an amendment to a gun-control measure that would have excluded those low-income earners from the Democrat-sponsored House bill that sought to levy fees for buying guns on all Colorado citizens.

That amendment was defeated by the Democrats, and the Democrat bill passed (after Joe Biden and the White House strong-armed 7 Democrat legislators into changing their votes, threatening to find candidates to primary against them if they voted in the way their constituency wanted them to, while promising that Obama would campaign on their behalf should they vote the way the White House wanted them to).

In the end, for all their bullshit about championing the little people — which is a carefully-constructed narrative that has been helped along by a progressive media and the left’s takeover of education, entertainment, and the like — what the left wants is one thing: a gentrified, neo-aristrocratic ruling class; and the rest of us, the masses, over which they will watch benevolently with an occasional stern hand should we get a bit too uppity.

If they can’t disarm you directly, they will figure out ways to make gun ownership increasingly rare and increasingly onerous. That their first targets in Colorado are those who are most directly affected by violent crimes committed by criminals is, truth be told, absolute proof that they care not a whit about gun violence, but rather care only about the long game of disarming the populace while increasingly militarizing the police.

For our own safety, of course.

  1. One might say the proper understanding of representation, in the view of the progressive left, is that the nominal representative promptly leap to adopt the opinion of the progressive authority at the top. If this doesn’t look like submission it’s only because the faith isn’t named Islam.

  2. All of those gun-grabbers are safely ensconced in their gated communities and have armed guards surrounding them.

    Hello? Mr. Biden? Your wife NEVER has to blast birds out of the sky with a shotgun, because you have SS protection for life.

    Damned hothouse flowers.

  3. If everyone understood the racist roots of gun control laws it would be impossible for any politician to support them. The support for gun control by Blacks and Jews has to be the largest disconnect from reality of all time.

  4. We were already headed towards economic disaster, with no solution in sight, and our betters decided to pile on and create a crisis of liberty that has not been seen before in this country.

    There will be blood, and lots of it.

  5. TeeJaw —

    I suggest joining Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, one of the most aggressive pro-second amendment organizations out there. And no, you don’t have to be Jewish to join. A while back, Mother Jones ran a story on the most radical of the pro-2nd Amendment groups (none of which, of course, were at all radical).

    The unintended consequences of which were that it introduced me to a host of pro-gun groups and advocates that I hadn’t heard of, all of which I immediately joined. I think I joined about 7 (I was already an NRA member) and the total cost was maybe $120.

  6. I think I’ll join the NRA regardless of my firearm-possession status.

    Mostly so that I can be the enemy of the right people.

  7. threatening to find candidates to primary against them if they voted in the way their constituency wanted them to

    Caving to a threat like that proves these guys aren’t fit to represent even a district populated by serfs, let alone a free people. If your constituents support something and you vote for it, some fucking brainless ivory-tower primary challenger sponsored by the little god-king is NO THREAT.

    Or would be, if those damn legislators had the balls God gave a paramecium.

  9. No no no no..you have it all wrong…There is no right to self-defense, only health care.

  10. - What the hell do you need healthcare for if you’re dead?

    – At some point in the never ending farce comedy of Progressive “narrative based politics” the serfs begin to catch on. When that happens things get sticky.

  11. That’s because the little people are too stupid to know when their selves need defending, Blake. Only Holy Mother D.C. can tell us that.

  12. - What the hell do you need healthcare for if you’re dead?

    Ding ding ding ding ding! BBH wins the prize!
    Dead people don’t need healthcare! Cost savings galore! Separate vacations and security details for the vlasti hosting awards shows don’t come on trees, you know.

  13. The Bill of Rights has officially been replaced by a list of stuff Joe Biden says you need.

  14. At some point in the never ending farce comedy of Progressive “narrative based politics” the serfs begin to catch on.

    I seem to recall that some of the unfortunates who ended up in the gulags wrote to Uncle Joe to report the atrocities, assuming that he couldn’t know about this.

    It’s easier to fool people than it is to convince them they’ve been fooled.

  15. The Bill of Rights has officially been replaced by a list of stuff Joe Biden says you need.

    Which — in an age of mere posturing for the purpose of future electoral advantage as opposed to rational governance with an eye to future improvement of the national condition — accords progressively with the achievement of progress rightly understood (with apologies to the Frenchman).

  16. Notice the egalitarianism created by taking away guns while making healthcare a “right.” Citizens become slaves along with healthcare providers.

    Equality for all!!

  17. Limbaugh is hammering this story, and for good reason of course.

  18. Most people don’t seem to mind a boot on their neck as long as it’s a stylish boot.

  19. There is only one true human right, and that is the right to be cared for and provided for by one’s benevolent state bureaucracy.

    The sooner you Hobbits recognize this, and stop your carping and caviling about some document written by a bunch of racist one-percenters like a hundred years ago, the sooner we can all put this nastiness behind us and get busy living in our brave new world.

  20. Last month, White House spokesman Jay Carney said none of Obama’s proposals “would take away a gun from a single law-abiding American.”[..]

    Obama wants to ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines exceeding 10 rounds that are produced in the future.

    I wonder how the keepers of Obazma Truth reconcile those particular statements?

  21. I wonder how the keepers of Obazma Truth reconcile those particular statements?

    They don’t have to reconcile anything because nobody ever asks them to reconcile anything. Certainly the Lickspittle Media never will, and if a Republican has the stones to do it, the Lickspittle Media will accuse them of McCarthyism, or drinking water, or having binders full of women.

  22. From sdferr’s link:

    Gun control supporters said the NRA ad and the Justice memo don’t mention that the current federal background check system blocked gun sales to 2.1 million criminals and others barred from owning guns between 1994, when the checks began, and 2010.

    Mark Levin addressed this bogus “2.1 million blocked gun sales” figure in a recent show.

    That 2.1 million figure represents the number of initial rejections (i.e. false positive results). However, over 90% of those went through just fine during a follow up check. For the rest, after they were investigated, there were only a handful (I think the number was 36) who were found to be actual real live blocks of attempted criminal purchases.

    Which is why the gun grabbers use the 2.1 million figure, to make it sound like the background checks are the only thing standing between us and legions of armed criminals roaming the streets. And if the checks are doing such an awesome job now, what reasonable person wouldn’t want to expand the checks even further? Think of all the additional criminals we will keep from possessing guns!

  23. Schumer Promises Universal Background Checks Won’t Create A Gun Registry… Then Calls It “Universal Registration”…”

  24. It’s good you pick up on that Dave, and good too to note that the AP either is unaware of the relevant distinctions or refuses to acknowledge them, but insists instead to promulgate a lie at every opportunity which comes to hand.

  25. That 2.1 million figure represents the number of initial rejections (i.e. false positive results). However, over 90% of those went through just fine during a follow up check. For the rest, after they were investigated, there were only a handful (I think the number was 36) who were found to be actual real live blocks of attempted criminal purchases.

    The way it seems to work in real life is perhaps you get okayed when the first run the check. If not then you go on “delay” which can last up to 5 business days while they do further checks. This from what I’ve heard is becoming more common as more old records and different agency’s records are being digitized and added to the system. More things to check. During that 5 days you may be denied or approved. If at the end of the 5 days they have done neither then you can buy the firearm anyways.

    What I’m not sure of is if the figures mentioned are all actual denials or if those who are delayed are considered to be “initial rejections” too.

  26. If you are going to buy a gun, I suggest you do it now, before congress can act further.

  27. Better make it two, cranky. Never can tell when a boating calamity might strike.

  28. According to John Lott, those delays are recorded as denials, and multiple delays are recorded as multiple denials. Here’s the number to be cognizant of: 13 people who went through NICs and tried to purchase a firearm with a background check were prosecuted last year.

    This is all a giant ruse. And we’re supposed to pretend it’s about children or gun violence.

    Stop arguing on that level. Lott says argue about safety: those initial denials are a problem with the background check system government wants to expand (when they can’t make it function properly now), and in some cases those denials prevent someone in need of protection that protection in a timely fashion. The end result being assault, rape, murder, etc.

    Me, I say fuck ‘em all. Bring on the black market.

  29. Thanks Jeff for the info. I’m a few of those 2.1 million then but just delayed for a few days.

  30. *** Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she believes a Wednesday Judiciary Committee hearing will “make the case” that her assault weapons ban is constitutional.

    The witness list for the hearing is United States Attorney for Colorado John Walsh, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, and two lawyers.

    Also at the witness table will be Neil Heslin, father of a Newtown, Conn., shooting victim, and a Newtown EMS medical director.

    Former GOP Rep. Sandy Adams (Fla.), a onetime police officer, rounds out the witnesses.

    [...]

    “I’ve tried to do it carefully. We have 22 co-sponsors. I recognize it’s an uphill battle. But I also know that there — these events are going to continue and America has to step up. The mothers, the women, the men of America have to make a decision as to whether their personal pleasure is more important than the general welfare.” ***

    That’s a stunningly powerful Constitutional witness list — if, that is, one has just arrived on Earth from the planet Venus.

  31. Sen. Mrs. Feinstein surely would note that she was not talking about Sen. Bob Martinez of New Jersey when remarking on forgoing personal pleasures in favor of the general welfare.

  32. - I wonder what Ms Feinfuckup would have to say if some tyrannical legislative group was trying to outlaw her security guard for the “general welfare”.

  33. - Thats exactly what I would ask her were I at that agitprop meeting.

  34. I say fuck ‘em all. Bring on the black market.

    Speaking of which, I had a very ironical moment the other day, listening to an aquaintance droning standard lefty gun control boilerplate nonstop.

    Afterwork in his machine shop.

    While getting high.

    Some folks just plain don’t get it.

  35. Jeff G. —

    I might be a member of JFPO, not sure. I’ve donated money a few times over the years. Aaron Zelman has always been one of my heros. However, the number of Jews who are members or even sympathetic to the goals of JFPO is miniscule. Considering the suffering of unarmed Jews at the hands of well-armed government agents, not merely during the holocaust but throughout the history of the civilization, one must wonder why every last Jew on earth is not a card-carrying member of JFPO.

    As for American Blacks the Democrats have robbed them of their history. Those who have troubled themselves to learn it are on our side, but they are a tiny subset of the total.

    Here’s some good news: By the end of this month at least 90,000 NICS checks will have been performed in Colorado since January 1st. That figure may represent the number of new guns sold, or the number may be less because of denials. But denials are a small percent of the total. It could even be more because one NICS may represent a purchase of more than one gun. If the current pace were to continue over one-half million more NEW guns could be in the hands of Colorado citizens, every one a certified law-abiding citizen.

  36. Sdferr, your excerpt doesn’t include DiFi’s declaration that “America’s laws are virtually nonexistent.

    I am very interested to know just what shade of fuchsia the sky is on her planet.

  37. If by “non-existent” she means ubiquitous and overwhelming, she’s right.

  38. I was insufficiently attentive to that statement of Mrs. Sen. Feinstein McG, and while I could claim this was due to the stunning I’d received from her foregoing statements, that wouldn’t be altogether so — it’s better to attribute it to carelessness on my part. But kudos for pointing to her proud and unabashed nihilism. These are the monsters our home has bred.
