Hypocrisy Of Liberals Who Cling To Their Guns
IBD EDITORIALS ^ | December 27, 2012

Posted on 12/27/2012 5:00:07 PM PST by raptor22

Gun Control: A different set of gun laws applies to network anchors, but even stranger is a newspaper publishing a map showing not only who has a firearm but also telling predators who doesn't.

It should have been sufficient for the Gannett-owned Journal News, headquartered in White Plains, N.Y., reporting on increased calls for stricter gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre in nearby Newtown, Conn., to have noted that about 44,000 people in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties in the Lower Hudson Valley — one of every 23 adults — was licensed to own a handgun.

But using data obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request, the paper went further and printed an interactive map showing the names and addresses of gun permit holders — a pathetic attempt to shame and embarrass them for exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

In an editor's note accompanying the map, it's pointed out that Journal News reporter Dwight R. Worley hypocritically owns a Smith & Wesson 686.357 Magnum and has had a residence permit in New York City for that weapon. It is not known if his house is one marked on the map, but at least he can post a "Protected by Smith & Wesson" sign.

Hypocrisy among those supporting more gun control is nothing knew — from the liberal elites who live in gated communities to Hollywood and music industry stars who travel with armed entourages. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California is readying legislation to Yet, as radio talk show host Mark Levin points out, Feinstein owns a concealed firearm. "If somebody tries to take me out," she says, "I'm going to take them with me." Seems her life matters more than those of her constituents.

They’ve taken our money.
They’ve taken our government.
They’ve taken our culture.
They’ve taken our rights.

Now it’s time to disarm us. :)

Now that the election is out of the way the Democrats are going to hit this hard. Forget healthcare, this is the left wing’s number one agenda. Always has been but they were afraid of not getting reelected. They are just a couple false flags away from total control.

Why do you think all those government agencies ordered all that ammo last year? The “Crazy Conspiracy” sites were all over this and now it makes sense. Get as many as possible dependent on the government, register gun owners, then collapse the economy.

Things are getting interesting. The economy is about to contract significantly causing more unemployment and misery. Liberal newspapers are publishing the names and addresses of gun owners and bloggers are publishing the names and addresses of liberals. Liberals are demanding that gun owners give up their guns or have them confiscated. Gun owners are not happy with liberals. This may be the prelude to.....A.Few if any guns in private possession B. Liberals losing their primordial fear of being held accountable by a suddenly enlightened and enraged citizenry especially minorities C. Peace and happiness or D Something very very different

I think we should be tracking the serial numbers on all of these assault weapons used in mass killings recently...could be tracked back to Eric “the Corrupt” and Fast and Furious. Remember, Fast and Furious primary purpose was to setup the fake sales for gun control laws. Starting to seem like a lot of coincidences lately with the mass murders by nutty people (experimental mind control?). By the way, how come no MSM pimp has even asked how a convicted murderer (a felon) obtained three weapons?

I hope some "unarmed" homeowner in that area, raided by an armed assailant, sues Gannett for every dime they've got.

“...(experimental mind control?”

In the movie “The Manchurian Candidate”, the mere sight of the Queen of Diamonds sent a brainwashed young man off the deep end to committ whatever acts his handlers demanded.

It’s awfully strange that so many shootings are taking place at the most opportune time for Progressives to push an agenda.

Is it far-fetched to suggest that these incidents have a relation to “experimental mind control”?.

It’s within the realm of possibility, no matter how “crazy” it seems or no matter how many Progressives call it “crazy”. (There are documented studies that confirm it.)

There may be someone who’s flipping some Queens of Diamonds.

IMHO

My great grandfather was a photographer among other things and left boxes and boxes of negatives. My sister got a few on loan from the museum the other day and is scanning them.

This one is of the street next to their house in the old hometown.

Those pre 64 model 94 winchesters with the buckhorn sights are a thing of beauty. Seems they were all the rage back in the 30s & 40s. My grandfather and 3 brothers all bought theirs at the same time....sequential serial numbers. Cool picture!

No frills camping then either. That pic was taken in the early to mid 50s when he was 80ish.

You forgot the invasion and butchering of typical White people.

I bet 0bama’s handlers want to indenture us to both Communist China and African nations. Perhaps Saudi, too.

And an old school tent. Anyone use these anymore, or have we all been seduced by the ease of the newer designs? I can put up my small Coleman in under five minutes, in the dark, no tools... But sometimes I look at these big old canvas monsters and wonder...

“Hypocrisy of Liberals Who Cling to Their Guns”

Liberal Hypocrisy isn’t the problem.

The problem is that too many people vote for them.

Elite ruling liberals often live in guarded gated communities.

Besides their gate guards having guns, there will be armed guys patrolling the property 24/7/365. Then many liberals like DiFi have C&C permits to go with their guns. It would be a safe bet that their drivers are well armed.

If they are members of a state or federal legislature, they meet other liberals in buildings with obviously armed guards and probably a lot of plain ctothed guards with legally concealed weapons.

More than likely if they have school aged children or grand kids, those off spring go to one of the 10,000 schools which have armed police officers at the school.

If we could take away their armed guards and concealed weapons, they would probably have a different outlook on an armed civilian adult population for rest of us.
