If you are here because of a search concerning Rockne1863, also known as Rockne Newell, who murdered 3 people in cold blood on August 5th 2013 at a town hall meeting….please refer to this article and announcement on the matter. His comments have been archived and are not publicly visible. Blame Disqus for that one.
Another problem about gun control, and seriously add this to the bottom of that very long and problematic list you are keeping, is that gun smiths and gun manufacturers are escaping town and moving to safer areas. Maryland’s Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley is a perfect example of a ignoramus falling to this trap. O’Malley is in the process of pushing one of America’s most ambitious anti-gun policies through the state legal system and one of Maryland’s largest companies Beretta is in the process of leaving the state. See Beretta’s’ products, which are used by millions of America, oh and the military and the Feds….will now be considered illegal under the new Maryland laws. Don’t think O’Malley is alone either because there are more than a few liberal twits pushing anti-gun agendas directly against the wants of the citizens they pretend to represent. Maryland is not alone in this stupidity….and don’t even get me started on New York’s resident crack pot Michael Bloomberg who is now banning guns, styrofoam, and two liter soda bottles.
Actions have consequences and the liberals are starting to realize this. We’re in a down economy and we’re driving away business by promoting absurd and lubricous agendas that America doesn’t even want. Beretta for example hosts over 400 jobs in the state of Maryland in addition to paying over 30 million in state taxes and investing into over 70 million in state assets. That is a lot of tax payer money this governor is risking for his crazy little agenda. I wonder how long his constituents are going to put up with this? Beretta has been known to make good on their threats as well. In 1990 Maryland was considering additional gun laws as well and Beretta threatened and successfully moved a part of it’s operation to Virginia. Have no confusion that they’ll do it again.
States with sane leaders not pushing for the restriction of constitutional rights are doing the right thing as well. Texas’s Governor Rick Perry for example advertising to these companies with the promise that Texas will never pass shallow anti-gun agenda laws. In this climate Texas sounds like a dream come true for these companies. If you can afford the move…which of course a lot of the mom and pop gun smith businesses cannot. Maryland gun smiths are going to have to defend against bankruptcy and having their products deemed illegal. Will they survive? Maybe and maybe not. Point is Maryland, and like states, are about to lose a lot of money over a silly proposal that has no business being in the state courts in the first place. Stricter gun laws are not the answer and have never been the answer.
What we have to realize is that the liberals are anti-gun for no other reason than because they do not like guns. Some legitimately blame guns for violence without realizing the real factors of the violence they are seeing. Others listen to the big heads on TV talk about guns and how the right supports them and takes an anti-gun stance because they see the other aisle as the enemy (AKA radicals). Even more are fooled by the propaganda on the television and by the President aggressively going after guns. I just wont when these people are going to wake up from their delusion. Guns are not the problem and banning them does one and only one thing. It opens the door up for the Federal government to start taking away your rights and liberties. This is the testing ground…give them an inch and they’ll take a mile. If you let the government compromise even one of your rights then where does the buck stop? When is enough and enough and how much will they seize and take away before you realize what they are doing? This is the danger of big government.
Even more so problematic is not all Americans are sheeple. True a good many of them are as gullible as can be now…but not all of us just yet. Us conservatives and patriots recognize the need for gun rights and we are more than willing to put up a fight against the anti-gun agenda. We know these new laws serve no purpose, burden the public with taxes, and we are well aware of the government testing the waters. You’ll notice red states such as Texas are already making such federal gun laws nullified. Texas again for example has made it a class D misdemeanor for any law enforcement official of any level who seeks to seize guns away from citizens…even if it is because of a federal mandate. I applaud these states for such measures and for the courage to protect citizen rights. As I posted yesterday secession is right around the corner and only by correcting our mistakes can we prevent it. A federal gun ban is almost like opening the gate to such a conclusion. The point is Americans will not stand for it.
Thomas Jefferson knew even in his time what this controversy was all about and quoted upon it several times. One of these quotes matches this article. Jefferson once said “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it“.
