Jersey City mayor appears on CNN to decry 'national plague' of guns
Jersey Journal ^

Posted on 01/10/2013 4:49:38 PM PST by SMGFan

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy spoke to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour yesterday about gun control, saying illicit guns are a “national plague that requires a national cure.”

Healy stressed that the city doesn’t “want to take guns from hunters,” adding that his problem is with assault rifles and weapons that hold clips of 30 or more rounds of ammunition.

“No hunter, no collector, no target shooter has any reason to have those weapons,” the mayor told Amanpour. “They were all banned up until about eight years ago. The bans expired. We’d like to get them back in place.”

Healy touted the city's recent gun buy-back, which led to 164 guns being taken off the streets, and he also chided Amanpour for saying Jersey City has a "high" homicide rate.

Sorry Jerry. It’s Nazi ‘RAT politicians like you that is the “national plague”, not guns.

Constitution? Bill Of Rights?

How silly! “Rights” are what the Dear Leaders let the little people have.

It is hard to believe that COLT started in Patterson, NJ.

That’s correct. And they want to ban more than 10 rounds... Hell, the average swat team has 12 members. You need at least that number for starters.

But free men governed by would-be tyrants have many reasons.

Here in NJ the mayors of the welfare reservations are upset because when the unassimilated minorities made enough noise about “racial profiling” the state troopers stopped pulling any of them over. All of the guns and drugs the troopers had been stopping on their way up to the northern cities immediately starting flowing through, and within weeks of the “standing down” all of NJ’s cities saw spikes in drug/gun crimes.

Too bad; be careful what you wish for.

Sorry, Mr. Mayor, but the problem in Jersey City is a lack of backbone in your office and in the police department to crack down on the gangs that invest your city.

And the most glaringly ironic component of all this hoopla over ‘gun control’ is that the Second Amendment was crafted to allow the American people to protect themselves from the very manner of government intervention these libtard progressive socialists are touting as their ‘solutions’.

Zero, keep your damn hands off my guns, and the guns of my neighbors, and every other American.

Your arguments ring hollow. You seek only to extend your control over the lives of the people. You desire only the continuation of your socialist pogroms, and the deeper enslavement of those you deem to require your assistance.

And, you know an armed populace will forever be the last barrier to the achievement of your mad plans.

Ahhh the double-standards!

No mention by this leftist puketoid that Dear Leader and his clown administration tried to undermine 2A via Fast and Furious - not to mention the deaths that caused mainly in Mexico.

Jersey City is a festing sewer of environmental pollution due to it’s various industries’ waste produced over the past 60-100 years.

That is what needs to be cleaned up beside its Mafia, its gangs, its corruption, and its IQ of about 7.

“Jersey City is a festing sewer of environmental pollution due to it’s various industries’ waste produced over the past 60-100 years.”

The whole county is like that (my town included). Jersey City’s one ray of hope is that in stark contrast to Newark, they’re gentrifying their underclass out of the area.

There is no “plague” of guns, but in some cities there is a plague of killers; that’s a social disease, not a disease of legal gun ownership.

If legal gun ownership was the “plague” the gun control advocates claim it is, then given the rate of legal gun ownership in the country the murder-by-gun rate would be 1,000s of times higher than it is and every single city in the country would have astronomical murder rates. That’s not what happens because the super-vast majority of legal gun owners do not go out and murder anyone.

Big city mayors with high murder rates need to work on cleaning up their own social swamp that helps create killers and quit using legal gun ownership as the excuse for their own cities problems.

Oh but it is a hunting license granted to us by the Almighty.

Jerremiah needs to bone up on his history.

The Minutemen, the Continental Army, et al were most definitely hunting...the minions of the our oppressors.

On occasion the objects of the hunt were sort of sitting ducks, along with some turkeys and wild bucks, but mostly lobsterbacks and Hessian blues. Finest kind of family tradition.
