The central socialist government sets a fine example for Americans by condoning and encouraging abortions thereby diminishing the respect for life. The inconvenience of child rearing is taken care of by the liberals in both parties who continually harp and campaign on 'the woman's right to choose.'

Godless America is well-versed in the "legitimate violence" against innocents in what should be their safest place of refuge, their mothers' wombs since Roe v. Wade with the death toll upwards of 50,000,000 and counting!

Hey Nadler, you obese, self-righteous moron.....riddle me these:

1. What is the definition of “legitimate violence”?...and

2. Who gets the monopoly on “illegitimate violence”? [raises up out of chair, hand waving frantically....”I know! I know!”]

That’s exactly why the right to bear arms was added to the Bill of Rights....government was never meant to outgun “The People”.

To put this in the right prospective...because I live around the DC region...since January of 2010....roughly 350 people have been killed. The list is mostly by knife, violent assault and pistol. Those killed by assault rifle or ammo clips of more than 10 bullets?

Well....I’m pretty sure that almost all died without the aid of the larger ammo clips and any confiscation of such ammo clips would not have saved a single one of the 350 DC lives.

So we might all want to add up the deaths per year by large ammo clips and ask how many would have survived?

As well....what of the 1k lives gone....by Salmonella poisoning? Could we possibly ban Salmonella? And the 100 lives lost in Tennessee each year by motorcycle....could we ban them and save those 100 lives? And the 400 lives lost each year by bus....could we ban buses....to save the 400 souls?

Nadler looks so nice now that he’s lost 450 lbs.

Who would have thought that an erstwhile jew would fit into a gestapo uniform?

The American political jew and those who vote for these leftist loons are of a completely different race from those who inhabit Israel.

Nadler is a communist pig, He has never read the Constitution that he swore to uphold. He is a trator to his country and should be sent to Gitmo now.

Sure because states worldwide have been so careful in the use of force. Civilians are never hurt by armed governments /s

The world would be better with armed civilians and disarmed states; not much but better than the reverse.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said only the federal government should have “high-capacity” gun magazines and that the “state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence.”

That is one of the hallmarks of a totalitarian government.

"state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence.”

When a sitting Congressman advocates usurping the Second Amendment he has committed treason yet not a peep from the media or the Republicans. There was a time when Nadler would have been swinging from a tree before lunch for such subversive, treasonous statements but unfortunately we've been slowly conquered from within by Communists and the majority of voting Americans want what they're selling. America is DEAD.

How about the central socialist government stay the hell out of our lives completely?

Stop redesigning our automobiles.

Stop pedestalizing homosexuals, lesbians and other assorted altered sexes.

Secure our nation’s borders before constructing schools, infranstructures and gigantic American embassies in middle eastern countries.

Eliminate most of the agencies of the intrusive central government.

Stop talking about stupid ideas like statehood for the District of Columbia.

Impeach Obama before Washington begins to resemble Madrid in 1936.

Gentlemen,

You assume that this mental midget, along with the likes of Barry, the Marxist faggot, Obama, Nutsy Pelousy, Reid, Schumer, Bloomberg, and the rest of the progressive cabal have a clear understanding of the purpose of our founding.

It should scare the living daylights out of every common-sense-thinking American that there exist “Representatives” and Senators in our government who are boldly and openly forsaking their oath of office. They all swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic, and guess what? They, themselves, are the enemies. They are the ones who are in open revolt against the very ideals ensconced in our founding documents.

Why it is that our military and the People aren’t in open revolt calling for the imprisonment and/or execution of these usurpers is beyond my understanding. Like the bumper sticker says, “Our Founding Fathers would be shooting by now.”

What’s “legitimate” violence? Would that include the Crips & Bloods and Latin Kings?

Nadler added. "One of the definitions of a nation state is that the state has a monopoly on legitimate violence. [...]"

Does anyone know where in our Constitution I can find this interesting definition which Nadler cites? Or is it maybe a quote from Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, or Thomas Paine? Is Nadler claiming that, per definitionem the United States does not fulfill the criteria for being a nation-state? Well, what are we then?

To me, it is amazing how these politicians can open their mouths before thinking through what they are going to say, and considering whether it conforms with Aristotelian logic.

Regards,

Someone should ask Nadler that if he can't control what he puts into his own mouth, how he can possibly think that he can control the behavior of everyone else.

Nadler's beliefs regarding violence are entirely German and Eastern European. These are not in the American tradition.

Just like to say the Nazis eventually used those beliefs to murder the Jews.

That makes Nadler's arguments just so much garbage ~ the man has a diseased mind. He should be locked up for his own good.

This “state monopoly on legitimate violence” business is straight out of Prussian political theory of the 19th century. Remember, they invented the modern nation-state. They also invented government-run schools.

Oh, sorry... not the 19th century. I missed it by 19 years. The concept, explicitly articulated, is attributed to Max Weber in his 1919 book Politics as a Vocation.

A government is only as moral and upright as the people who run it on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately, our government seems replete with evil people and tyranny has resulted. Our government no longer has the moral standing to create law, let alone define “legitimate violence”. An adequately armed public is the only check-and-balance left on the government because they have corrupted politics and the system for conducting elections. We are down to our LAST line of defense against an evil government. We simply cannot allow them to neutralize an armed citizenry as well or most of us will become slaves to the government. Live free or die. . . .

I agree. It looks like Gerald lost about half a ton. I imagine that most of that excess weight was probably due to the fact that he hadn’t had a bowel movement in years.

In other words, he was full of defecation as are most of those cowardly traitors who fill up the nation’s Congress.

Too bad there was no "state" in Germany from 1933 to 1945. Just imagine if there had been, everything would have turned out all right! [/sarcasm]

PS: I once read a letter from the editor in a local newspaper in which some idiot claimed there would have been no Holocaust if Germany had had gun control! True story!!!

Correction ~ the modern nation state arose out of the agreements that ended the 30 years war ~ called The Peace of Westphalia ~ that's in the 1600s.

The Prussian takeover followed on the heals of the Prussian invention of the modern postal union in the 1800s ~ nothing else than that.

Public schools were part of the package in a good number of very ancient city states ~ in Europe, Asia AND Africa.

That would be true were it not the case that victims did the work. You have to insert VOLUNTARY before the expression to get the gist ~ which is someone who came in from outside to voluntarily move dead Jewish bodies from the gas chambers to the ovens, or the trenches ~ BECAUSE HE OR SHE LIKED IT!
