"As flies are to wanton boys, are we to the gods.
They kill us for their sport"
(Shakespeare, "King Lear").
Would Oakland offer any slight improvement?
At any rate, you have any number of fellow FReepers who would at least offer you a bolthole should things in SF reach more lethal levels, as has been promised. Do not be in the position of a Jew waiting for the showers who waited a bit too long to avoid the Germans and those of his own people who assisted them.
Let me know if you decide that might be sooner rather than later.
Unfortunately, you will discover, if you follow the money, that H.C.I. is the opposite of the organization interested in preserving our Constitution, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership --- that is to say, H.C.I. is heavily funded by Jews for the dissolution of the Second Amendment.
That is unfortunate, because you might wish to think that socialist / leftist [limousine liberal] Jews would wish to be adamant about preserving individual freedom and the right to keep and bear Arms; and well, the JFPFO are, while the H.C.I. and A.D.L. are not.
The Hechinger hardware family's foundation, being a major, if not the major, contributor.
Not to mention that H.C.I. was the basic cash flow for Charles Schumer's run for the Congress.
Setting aside the Jews on both sides of the argument, pro and con, the right to keep and bear Arms, that leaves the supporters for H.C.I. primarily being, still, leftists, while supporters of the right to keep and bear Arms can be found among a wide variety of Democrats and Republicans, a few liberal, many conservative.
The position of various gun-toting bureaucrats in the government(s) within the United States, varies depending upon their leaning toward, or away from, the A.F.L.-C.I.O. labor union directorate, which is to say, the mean to serve themselves at the public trough, and any call to alarm the public, which causes an increase of cash flow into the trough, in reaction to the public's worries about what the liberal media may cause by the nightly news-fear-mongering update, is welcomed by Big Labor.
To wit, in general, H.C.I. is not what it claims to be.
Lastly, inside the Beltway, there is a wing of the A.F.L.-C.I.O. made up of leftist legal beagles, whose purpose is the creation of "movements in the public interest."
It's founders, who are in general, the totems of the branches of the A.F.L.-C.I.O. who have made Ted Kennedy the man that he is.
The name of that "think tank" is (used to be called):
They manufacture "movements" and "coalitions" in a near-assembly-line like process of legal ministrations, and fill such "non-partisan" groups' literature with "studies" upon which, are based the "facts" that their spokes-creatures respond to interviews by thought-less liberal media talking heads.
Yes. The left makes a business venture out of creating leftwing extremist movements by the dozen, so to speak, in order to provide the appearance that there are "so many people against" what the liberal media, et al, want you, the public eye, to be against --- you'll bite, say the leftist marketers, because you'll want to be part of the crowd.
So, to get a crowd, the left started an organization that creates the basis for them, so that they can be, "rented."
Such Rent - a - Crowds are often the opposition for the Washington area FRPR's.
H.C.I. was founded for one purpose, to create a crowd for the public eye, by which socialists can cause increasing public unhappiness that leads to where socialists want us all to go, petitioning the Congress that, in whatever crisis de jour is in the headlines, "Something must be done about it."
That is what Bill and Hillary Clinton and H.C.I. et al, do for a living: cause a panic, so that you will be afraid enough to let government have more power to regulate your life at the expense of your liberty.
God Bless the JFPOF, for having the guts to tell their brothers that Big Government is not what will save Jews; to the contrary, it was, through all of the 20th Century, Big, Un-Limited Governments that killed Jews.
When I was a little kid, my father did not give me a gun.
Instead, I was curious about a book entitled Auschwitz.
That convinced me that daring to be free, was essential for our liberty. That we must stand up for our neighbor, or we will likely be next.
Things that I learned, when only six years old.
Un-limited government, un-checked by the distant reserve of an armed citizenry's well-regulated muster, is an invitation to tyranny, totalitarian imposition, and terror for the people.
All throughout pending-NAZI Germany, Germans said to themselves, and argued about it behind closed doors, "It will never happen."
Because organizations bent on stripping the people of their rights, which is the purpose of H.C.I., were not correctly identified.
Often, well-meaning organizations are hijacked by socialists; the League of Women Voters is one such organization. Used to have a lot of brave people in that outfit, until the Marxist-enlightened Ph.D. graduates from Wellesley and Smith began to lecture and cajole the ladies into believing themselves intellectual incapable of standing up for freedom, on the basis of their simple, good, common sense.
That is, beware of socialists bearing diplomas, for they bring with them a leviathan of statistics with which to smother you to your last gasp.
Dare to be free.
Never, never, never quit.
HCI and their dead dem supporters are a lying bunch of chicken little turdburglers IMHO just trying to panic the sheeple. ...........oughta be a law !
Stay safe !
Senator Kerry has missed votes, but he didn't miss the opportunity to vote recently to restrict your right to keep and bear arms.
Yes, in the papers and on TV. It's usually accompanied by a LEO or DA comment such as, "The victim was not arrested on murder (or attempted murder) charges, pending an investigation. It appears that his weapon was only used in a defensive capacity, and was correctly registered with the authorities." Or not, like that poor immigrant in NYC who had to do jail time because he defended himself -- which probably cost him his job.
There's a divide between urban and suburban America, between elite and common America, and the commoners, the folk from the countryside usually agree: self-defense is a human right. The urban dwellers and the elites have a very different view, yet crime is worse in the cities usually. Go figure.
