Report shows Mayors Against (your) Guns desperation to be relevant
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | September 28, 2010 | David Codrea

Posted on 09/28/2010 11:27:11 AM PDT by Neil E. Wright

"Report: VA guns trigger out-of-state crimes," WTOP.com tells us.

What report?

This one, the latest attempt at infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms from New York City mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns, titled "Trace the Guns: The Link Between Gun Laws and Interstate Trafficking." The report is supported by a companion website, TraceTheGuns.org.

If you're interested, you can wade through statistics on trace data and exports and "time to crime"...what strikes me is, this whole effort seems more an indictment on existing gun control edicts than the lack of laws. The Gun Control Act of 1968 pretty much limits "legal" personal interstate firearm transfers to those utilizing licensed dealers, and the "prohibited persons" committing the vast majority of violent crimes are forbidden by law to even touch a gun, let alone carry and use one. And theft, another major source for "crime guns," is illegal as well.

With those basics established, what point is there in wading through the minutiae? What's clear is that Bloomberg, a chronic control freak with taxpayer-funded armed bodyguards, is intent on dictating what guns we can own, and how we must conduct ourselves with what he allows us to possess. The whole point of this effort is to frighten the public and pressure politicians to pass even more citizen disarmament laws that, like all the edicts that have been enacted before, will only harass the "law-abiding."

It's no accident that the violent crime plague is the worst in cities already under the (illusion of) control of Bloomberg & Co. Their "solution" is to extend their enlightened rule over the rest of us, who have no problem controlling ourselves and who just want them to leave us alone.

On a related note,one of the towns near where I bought my farm in Kentucky has their own local version of Craigslist. There are TONS of guns for sale there. It’s where I’ll be getting my pistols and hunting rifles when I move there.

Just like the US of 200 years ago. Guns treated as tools.

what a fine idea.

kind of like a disappointing “where's george” site, complete with detailed mayhem and imminent prosecution of those who's firearms are stolen and recycled.

why is it that someone always beats me to the truly great ideas...?

I’m really sorry, but I feel uncomfortable posting it “internationally”. The risk of it being killed is too great.

Have you noticed that In the dozens of posts about my place in central rural Kentucky I never get more specific than that?

There is a reason. :)

This organization was thoroughly misrepresented to mayors nationwide when Bloomberg initially began to acquire supporters. Dozens of mayors removed their names when they discovered the true intent...the destruction of 2nd amendment rights. But then, I can’t imagine anyone dumb enough to join Bloomberg in ANYTHING.

well, in all fairness, SF will prolly burn before seattle, but then again, the Lord is capable of multi-tasking...

we beat feet outta the city [looooavull/So In] and found lots of 'elbow room' and a very relaxed and receptive atmosphere here in middle Ky...escapin wrath wasnt the motive then, but its sure lookin like divine intervention now...

You and me both. At the time I bought my property, it was about 10% of the reason. It’s just over 50% now. It has become the main reason.

The people are amazingly friendly as well. My wife and I love that area.
