Guns, Guns, Guns…

…and who owns them.

I’ve been paying attention, with unusual interest, to the debate surrounding the tiny newspaper in New York that released the names of firearms permit holders.

Clearly this was political.  Clearly it was legal.

OK… so why would anyone be upset?  Aside from the blatantly political move by the “objective” press….

1.  There is an argument that gun owners do not want “bad guys” to know they have a gun in their home.

I’m not sure I understand this argument… If I’m not home my weapons are secure.  If I’m home, I’m secure.  No problem.  I hope the “bad guys” all know… that’s kind of the point.

2.  There is an argument that law-abiding Liberals living around those who have publicly applied for, and obtained, firearms permits are a threatened by those permit holders.

Again, I’m not sure I understand this argument as law-abiding Gun Owners are not the ones committing crimes.  They are also connected in many cases of stopping criminal acts in progress.  (We can discuss who is the “first line of defense” in comments if needed.  I welcome it.  I have also heard Liberal talking heads say they would not want their kids in my home if they know I have guns… well I too do not want your kids in my home, soooo… we’re okay then, right?)

But there is one clear point here.

Yes, this exposure was intended to “shame” those who own guns by the Leftist Newspaper.  But it has turned out to be only shameful to the Leftist permit holders.  This fact should bring a smile to our collective gun owning faces.

You have to remember that to a Liberal, laws are for other people… not the Liberals who propose them.  The only people on that list of names who were “shamed” were those individual Liberals who champion Gun Control laws… for the Little People.   It is fashionable to be in favor of gun bans… being more outraged over every shooting than your neighbor… shaking your head in disdain over the proliferation of guns in America, etc.

This presents itself in the Righteousness associated with their Democrat/Socialist circle of friends by being in favor of all and any Gun Control.  (These are also the same people who if offered a sign for their front yard proclaiming “This Home is Proudly Gun Free” would refuse to put it up.  I know this because I have personally offered to hammer it into the ground myself…)

However, It becomes difficult to explain to your “Common Sense-Mainstream” Liberal neighbors that you too are a “Common Sense-Mainstream” Liberal when you have been outed as a gun-toting freak.

This is why there has been quick and focused amount of negative attention applied to this matter by the rest of the Leftist Media… because they’re well aware that a number of their members happen to have concealed carry permits and reside in New York and the surrounding boroughs, counties and states.  The very leftist New York Media who are NOT cheering this latest exposure of permit holders, know full well they are on deck for the next round of exposures.

So once again, the Hypocrisy of the Left is what is at issue here.  Nothing New.

Don’t be distracted by the first two arguments and pay closer attention to who is being offended and positioning themselves as the suddenly new champions of the second amendment and personal privacy.  You will find a growing number of Democrats whose voting records demonstrate their brand new, previously undocumented, love of both.  They have images to protect… don’t you know.

Keep Smiling!

(Update: Gawker has fired the next shot by producing a list of permit holders in NYC.  Hilarious!)

It’s worth noting that this story occurred several years ago… and very shortly after Gawker released the NYC list the ‘releasing of lists’ suddenly stopped.  It was not made illegal to release these lists… it just ‘mysteriously’ stopped.  Funny how Leftist Liberals do not like it when you turn on the lights.

What do Benghazi and Newtown have in common?

Both have taxpayer-funded Liberal officials trying to suppress the “Why” it happened.

It is a fact that the State Department is not interested in discussing the “Why” behind Benghazi.  Hilary Clinton said as much and John Kerry has reiterated her sentiments.  Witnesses have been hidden from the press, and Administration officials have derided the press for even asking.  The position, as stated by Hilary Clinton, is… “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”  Yes… what does it matter if we have adopted a stance which leaves our Diplomatic personnel hanging out to dry?

But the efforts to suppress the “Why” behind the Newtown shooting has not received much coverage.  According to the Washington Post, a bill being quietly pushed through the Connecticut Legislature would allow the victims to decide what information would be made public regarding the event.  While this is being couched under the auspices of “Victims Rights”, and the public is being told it is primarily concerning the crime scene photo’s… it would include all aspects of the case.  In other words, it would include any notes, ledgers, e-mail, websites, etc.  It would basically prevent anyone from finding the “Why” an arguably disturbed but not unintelligent individual would plan, equip and execute such a horrible crime.

Allow me to be clear.  I am not waiting with bated breath to see the crime scene photo’s from Newtown any more than I care to see the crime scene photo’s from Benghazi.

However, I do want to see the correspondence surrounding both events.  I do want to see what websites and media young Lanza consumed regularly.  I do want to understand who thought it would be a brilliant idea to dig up a stupid video to blame the Benghazi assassination on.  I do want to see the scribbling’s of a young man who was seeking… something.  I do want to hear from the other survivors of the “spontaneous” consulate attack.

There is truth to be found in both cases… and in both cases there are Liberals attempting to shield it from the light of day.

These types of things make me wonder… “Why”.


Let Me make sure I Understand this…

The Conservatives…

The people who want to control you,
The people who want you to starve,
The people who want you to breathe polluted air,
The people who want you to drink dirty water,
The people who want you to eat poison food,
The people who want you to be homeless,
The people who want to exploit you,
The people who want to own your body,
The people who want you to be sick,
The people who want to oppress you,
The people who want you to die…

Are…

The people who want you to have Guns.


Is it the gun?

Or do we have a different problem?

There has been much talk about how these incidents have increased over the last 30 years… while that observation is worthy of additional scrutiny to determine its validity, it does correspond to the worlds, and particularly the U.S., changing the way we handle the mentally ill and their subsequent treatment.

Here is an interesting story published yesterday in the Hartford Courant. A CT. Newspaper.  These stories are not unusual.

This link will take to the story.

We must be very careful how this discussion of mental illness progresses. We seem to be in a rush to assign illness to every individual in every circumstance such a PTSD to Autism. Certainly there are many valid cases of these illnesses, but there are also certainly many which are not.
