Posted on 02/06/2014 12:31:13 AM PST by neverdem
President Obama said previously that the nation needed to have a "conversation" about gun control, and he reiterated this agenda in his State of the Union speech. New York's Governor, Andrew Cuomo, has subsequently boasted that his SAFE Act has criminalized law-abiding gun owners for "offenses" such as having too many bullets in their guns. This helps prove that Cuomo meant exactly what he said when he stated that there was no place for "extreme conservatives" in his state. Cuomo defined his enemies as those who "oppose abortion rights and favor legalization of assault weapons.
Barack Obama's ongoing anti-Second Amendment rhetoric, and the SAFE Act, prove that the left wing of the Democratic Party has declared war on all law-abiding gun owners. Moderate Congressional Democrats have, through their silence, given their consent to this agenda. There is not only no place for gun owners, almost all of whom are productive citizens, in New York State; there is no place for them in the Democratic Party.
This is emphatically a war, and not a conversation. The following, along with the Obamacare debacle ("If you like your Democratic Member of Congress, you can keep him"), are all strong arguments for voting straight Republican in almost every House and Senate contest this year. At the state level, Pennsylvanians need to be aware that potential gubernatorial candidate Allyson Schwartz shares Andrew Cuomo's unethical and dishonest position that gun manufacturers should be held civilly accountable for misuse of their products.
(1) The enemy has deployed military-grade hate propaganda against gun owners.
Does any reasonable person believe that a German Jew could have had a constructive win-win conversation with the creators of this poster?...

Obama also said we would discuss the ACA on CSPAN to get citizen input. He acted alone.
The US will go with a whimper .
Obama knows now one will fight to preserve our freedoms.
He will act alone knowing none of us will do more than post about it.
We can still vote and you can bet your butt that that is the only reason the so called "progressives" haven't gotten everything they want. We stopped gun control dead in its tracks. And while the war still rages, we showed them that we still have the power to not only hold this line but to advance in the face of their best efforts.
We can also join political lobbying groups like the NRA and GOA which can magnify our political will.
We can also talk to our friends and bring them and, more importantly possibly, their children over to our cause.
And we can work at the local levels to get county and city law enforcement officers elected that are fully aligned with our cause, law enforcement officers that will refuse to enforce unconstitutional anti-gun laws and who will refuse to aid the feds in the enforcement of those same laws.
Remember, despite their BEST EFFORT, we stopped them and then added millions of brand new pistols and assault rifles to the arsenal of democracy and then we added millions of Americans to our ranks and then we ended the political careers of two Colorado state senators who dared to cross our line and there will be plenty more of that happening next November.
Shooting sports have never been more popular. Reloading has never been more popular. Concealed carry has never been more prevalent. While they wallow in their epic fail, we set new records every year.
We are winning this war.
President Obama said previously that the nation needed to have a (”conversation”) about gun control, and he reiterated this agenda in his State of the Union speech.
(”conversation”): translation; Shut up and listen to what I am going to do.
“We are winning this war.”
Yes we are. It never stays won, but compared to where we were 20 years ago, we’re doing very well. It’s about the only place conservatives are prevailing in my view.
The gun grabbers will grab one too many and will pay the price.
This is what is being done.
And we need more of it. Open & public defiance.
Compared to the 1970’s, we are doing very well indeed.
The snarling fury of Obama, Cuomo, Rendell, Bloomberg & others only proves this further. They are extremely angry & frustrated.
No reason for us to let up keeping our Congressthings informed of what gun owners value more than any firearm: our freedom.
Watch for a new campaign to ostracize, marginalize, & demonize gun rights advocates in this election year. Class warfare of the worst kind: “those gun owners just aren’t our kind of people”.
Why don’t they just call it like it is?
THE WAR ON PRIVATE GUN OWNERSHIP.
Surrender your guns!
It may seem that way, but only because the enemy is only lobbing shots across the bow and not actively shooting ....yet....
Well, like I have been saying, militarized law enforcement is just another way of saying martial law enforcement and that's why we need to have our people running for elected city and county law enforcement leadership positions where it is feasible. It's actually pretty critical that we control law enforcement at the county/city levels because you're right, our days of winning are numbered. Eventually, they stop playing by the rules and resort to violence. They will have to.
Exactly. They need to come take all of mine. If they can find them all.
The campaigns to marginalize us have been ongoing as long as I can remember. If the grabbers aren’t squealing, you’re doing something wrong!
Well....now the gungrabbers have Obamacare & `Docs against Glocks’ & invasive questionnaires, and it’s true Josh Sugarmann & Amitai Etzioni want to see gun owners shamed & shunned by their neighbors, but still....
The IT revolution has been as harmful to gungrabbers as to muzzies in spreading their respective religions. Nothing gets put out by the Feinstein crowd that doesn’t get instantly refuted online. DiFi especially is acting more & more like Captain Ahab in her purblind frustration.
Does help to live in a gunfriendly state, this is true.
