This nation has tens of thousands of guns laws on the books and those laws have made no difference in gun crimes. Unless, of course, those laws are ones that allow freer expression of Second Amendment rights. Places with laws allowing carry of firearms have lower crime. Places like Chicago and DC, where the gun laws are the strictest, have out of control crime.
After the Aurora CO theater shootings the liberals were screaming for more gun laws. Mind you, these well intentioned liberals only want common sense gun laws and not anything that would infringe on your rights (nod, nod, wink, wink).
Faced with the reality that the theater was a no gun zone which means that a rule was in place to keep guns out, the liberals had to think of some other reason to enact these sensible laws. The shooter did not follow the rule about taking a gun in the theater (but everyone else did much to their detriment) so banning guns won’t fly. Hmm, the guy bought thousands of rounds over the internet so maybe we need to ban that. Upchuck Schumer of New York is trying that but it must be a bad idea because it was slipped into another bill. The guy used fewer than one hundred rounds so it matters not how many he bought over the Internet, he could have bought a hundred at a Wal Mart on the way to the theater.
Wait now, the libs are pointing out that the shooter had a mental health issue and that a more extensive background check could solve the problem.
Hell, the recent shooting at the Sikh Temple involved a whack job skinhead so a better background check might have kept him in check as well.
Really? Let us see. There is a report that the psychiatrist treating the Aurora shooter reported him to campus police.
There is a report that federal law enforcement had the Sikh shooter on its radar but did not deem him a threat.
So what we have are two police agencies that were aware of the potential for disaster from two people who ended up being mass murderers and those police agencies did absolutely nothing to prevent the massacres from happening.
How in the name of all that is good would a more stringent background check have prevented any of this if the police already knew about the potential problems but did not act?
In fact, the shooter of Congresswoman Giffords had been in trouble with the law and was known to have issues but the law enforcement agency in the area swept that away because his mother worked there.
So tell me again how more government involvement will curb the killings?
It won’t. The government has been more and more involved in the effort to disarm us for a long time and in all the places where government has successfully infringed on our rights the number of gun crimes has gone up. The aforementioned Chicago and DC are prime examples. New York is another.
Guns are banned in Chicago and severely restricted in DC and New York (ironically, Chuck Schumer has a carry permit for New York) and look at the carnage. Chicago is more dangerous than Afghanistan.
We do not need more gun laws. We need the laws we have enforced and we need those entrusted to uphold the law to act when they have credible reports that someone is evil.
Never surrender, never submit.

The Democrats are in full court press mode as the budget battle heads toward the next round of attempting to get a budget in order. Chuck Schumer, the whiny liberal Senator, was caught on a conference call instructing fellow Democrats to use the word extreme while describing the Republican’s cuts and to tell the press that was supposed to join the call that Republicans were refusing to negotiate. The problem is that the reporters were already on the line and heard Schumer instructing his colleagues to lie about what is going on.
Evidently, the Democrats had a liberal focus group and when they said Republican’s budget cuts are extreme the wimpy liberals wet their pink panties so Democrats are now using that term. Harry Reid used it as well during the day because that is the new plan.
The Democrat who takes the cake is the moron from Maryland, Steny Hoyer. Hoyer, who calls the Tea Party Caucus the perfectionist caucus, said that Democrats will not be to blame if the government shuts down (which it never really does) and he made the amazing claim that this would not be a problem if Democrats were in charge:
“It’s self-evident we don’t control Washington, or we wouldn’t be having this problem,” Hoyer said, arguing that Democrats would not be to blame if the government shuts down. FOX News
This is amazing because the reason we have the problem is that Democrats WERE in charge. Yes Mr. Hoyer, the problem we are now facing over not having a budget is because you and your fellow Democrats failed to exercise your Constitutional duties and pass a budget last year. You were too cowardly to pass a budget prior to the election and this is why we have a problem.
If you had done your job then we would have a budget in place and would not be wasting time trying to get one passed nearly a half year after it was due.
In other words Steny, you are full of crap. We certainly would have this problem if you were in charge because that is why we have the problem.
It is amazing to me that this moron would make such an obviously stupid (and false) statement but then again Democrats are full of people who make stupid and false statements.
You did not do you job Mr. Hoyer and that is one of the reasons you and your party took a first class beating in the last election.
As for calling the Tea Party Caucus the perfectionist caucus, perhaps if we had more people trying to achieve perfection and fewer trying to rape the taxpaying public we would not be in such bad shape.
I would rather be part of the perfectionist party than be part of the dumb ass party and that sir, is where you reside.
Time is running out and if the government shuts down it will be the sole responsibility of the Democrats for failing to pass a budget when they were suposed to.
Never surrender,never submit.

Chuck Schumer is not a supporter of the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. He is in favor of more gun control and more restrictions on Americans in violation of our Constitutional right. But Chuckie is not completely against the Second Amendment. Chuck has a gun permit and carries one even though he is in a state where it is extremely tough to get any kind of carry permit. The kind of permit Chuckie has is nearly impossible to get.
Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office — the investigative arm of the US Congress — slammed Schumer’s use of police resources for personal protection. It’s clear that Schumer believes he’s special. He wishes to ban private citizens’ ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
“No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much — he’s able to protect himself,” says a 25-year police veteran.
Also, a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an “unrestricted” pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it’s evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules — one for Americans and one for himself. American Daily
Yes, Schumer is part of the political class that thinks he is more important than you. He thinks he deserves more protection than you so much so that he even has police officers who escort him. He can defend himself and he has an escort detail of police officers.
Most citizens I know do not want their own police officer and if the state of New York wants to pay cops to tag along with Chuckie then it is their business as long as it is only New York taxpayers footing the bill.
But what we do want is to be able to exercise our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The people of New York (and all of the states for that matter) deserve THE EXACT SAME carry permit that Chuckie was able to get. The people are his boss and if he can get a permit then they all should have one.
In fact, if we were to follow the Constitution (assuming that requiring permits is not a violation of it) then people should be issued permits unless there is some compelling reason not to allow an individual to carry.
Obviously Schumer feels that he has certain inalienable rights that the rest of us do not. He would like to disarm you while packing his own heat.
And this people, is why we need to get rid of all these pukes.
It is November or never.
Never surrender, never submit.

Chuck Schumer was on an airplane waiting for it to takeoff. He was using his cell phone after the flight attendant’s instructions to everyone to turn off their electronic devices. Evidently the rules do not apply to Chuck Schumer because he kept talking. A flight attendant told him that he had to turn it off and he asked if he could complete his call to which she said “No.” Schumer ended his call and then turned to the other Senator from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand, and said the flight attendant was a “bitch.” Then Schumer’s phone rang (which means he did not turn it off) and he announced that it was Harry Reid but that health care would have to wait until they landed.
Federal law states that passengers must follow the instructions of flight crews. Schumer broke the law so why is he not facing charges?
I have been on flights with jackasses like him. They continue to use phones and ipods (and other devices) even after they have been told to turn them off. People keep chatting away and act like they are being imposed upon when told to turn the phone off. These people hold up the flight and inconvenience everyone on board and more than once I have voiced my disgust with these morons. Schumer is a Senator so he believes that he is above the law and that the rules do not apply to him.
Calling the flight attendant a bitch was out of line and not very professional for a Senator. I am sure my liberal commenters will take him to task for his act of demeaning a woman, I won’t hold my breath.
Schumer is a whiny puke moron who should have been told to get off the plane. The Air Marshals should have frog marched him out and then strip searched him.
No one, including Schumer is so important that phone calls can’t wait. How did people ever get along before cell phones were invented? If you are so important that you can’t wait to use a cell phone then stay on the ground.
The rest of us do not want to put up with your inconsiderate behavior.

Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats have been putting the blame for the current financial crisis on the back of the president and the Republican Party who Democrats claim failed to address the issue. The Democrat’s parrots in the media have been shouting to anyone who will listen trying to make the accusations stick. This is a coordinated attack to take the focus off all the Democrats who have been bought and paid for by the greedy people on Wall Street. Fox News had a story and this should provide documented proof, with audio and video, as to whom the blame lies. In reality, this news story shows the efforts of the Bush Administration in trying to reign in the mortgage giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The complete history goes back decades and involves Democratic plans that allowed people to buy things they had no hope of ever affording.
I doubt this will do any good because too many people have overdosed on the moonbat Kool Aid, but it clearly shows that there were a number of people, including President Bush, on multiple occasions who tried to reign in Fannie and Freddie. Pay attention to Barney Frank and see how his assessment squares with the reality we’re facing. Listen to the people who said that we were heading for trouble and see how Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer had a hand in preventing any regulation.
Then take heart in the knowledge that Nancy Pelosi assigned Barney Frank the job of fixing the problem.
How can one fix something if one does not recognize the problem?
You should also keep in mind that these are the people who want to lead you. While John McCain headed back to DC, Barack Obama prepared for a debate and fund raising (he was left with little option than to return after a call from the President).
Who puts the country first?
Riehl World View says that Palin should debate Obama while McCain is TCB in DC. Not a bad idea. Could be risky but she is not a member of Congress so she does not have to be there and Obama has no intention of staying in DC.
