New York’s New Gun Laws Are a Cosmic Joke and the Criminals are Laughing

I listened to Andrew Cuomo speak on the gun laws the state of New York just passed. He sounded like a Pentecostal preacher. The cheers from the crowd reminded me of a revival meeting. For liberals, more laws are their salvation. They believe that more laws make us safer and more secure. Law books are their Bible. The building that houses the legislature is their church.

What is often lost on liberals is that the intent of the heart and the machinations of the mind are where evil is hatched. It wasn’t a gun that brought down the twin towers and killed more than 3000 people in New York City. It was a few men with box cutters who took over two jet airplanes and flew them into the Twin Towers. Everything these men did was illegal.

Bad people don’t care about laws. They laugh at laws because they know it makes their work easier.

Every person involved in these mass shootings was breaking numerous laws. Breaking one or two more won’t matter to someone hell-bent on death and destruction. In many of these cases, the perpetrators end up killing themselves. The legal sanctions are never applied. You can’t prosecute a corpse.

The legislators who voted to restrict guns in additional ways cheered at their good fortune. The problem is, not one of these new laws will restrict a person who wants to kill one, two, ten, or 20 people.The majority of Americans knows this. Consider these headlines:

Vegas: 60,000 Expected To Attend Gun Show...
Idaho: 'People can hardly walk they've got so much stuff'...
S Dakota: 'Unprecedented demand'...
Kentucky: 'Store shelves bare'...
Virginia: Lines Stretched for Hundreds of Yards...

There are millions of guns in America. If some nut case or your run-of-the-mill criminal wants to get a gun, he’ll be able to do it. Drugs, prostitution, and black market cigarettes (to avoid New York’s high cigarette taxes) are easy to come by if you know the right people. Don’t you think the same is going to be true for guns?

The new law will limit magazine sizes so that they can only carry seven bullets. So a future murderer buys a gun and two magazines that each holds seven bullets. He takes the extra magazine, turns it upside down and tapes it to the other magazine. When he finishes shooting the bullets in the one clip, he pulls it out of the gun, flips it over, and inserts the other magazine.

With a handgun tucked neatly in his belt and another holstered and two seven-capacity magazine clips, a person could be within the parameters of the law – except when he decides to kill someone. I don’t know of a law that will stop someone intent on murder.

Better yet, he buys a gun on the black market. He’ll pay a little more for it, but what does he care; he’s going to blow his own brains out when he’s finished. Money won’t do him any good where he’s going.

Some people might ask what a person needs with seven bullets? I heard a woman debating the gun control topic on Sean Hannity last night. She said a hunter who needs seven bullets to kill a dear shouldn’t be out hunting. The Second Amendment is not about hunting; it’s about warding off the potential of tyranny and being able to engage in self defense against people who want to do harm. Who knows how many of the people who used a firearm to protect themselves would have been a murder statistic if they did not have a loaded gun at the ready.

A Georgia woman was confronted by an assailant and pumped five bullets into him. He did not die. In fact, he was able to leave the house and get in his car. He eventually passed out. He’s still alive as of this writing.

What if there had been two or more assailants? The woman and her two nine-year-old children would most likely be dead. When the pro-gun control advocate was asked what she would have done? She said she would have called 911. According to officials in New York City, it takes on average of 8.4 minutes for the police to respond to crimes in progress. That’s the average.

Good luck with that!

    Hunters do not hunt with assault weapons!!!!! They use rifles or shot guns which hold 1 or 2 bullets. The CT shooter did NOT use an assault weapon, he used a rifle. These illogical liberals talk about $hit that is no relation to the issues at hand and the reporters do not confront their idiotic reply’s. It is mental illness. Just ignore them when you stop cracking up with laughter. LOL… I mean really, our president is strutting the stage of the NY radical bill signing with 7 year olds. How morbid is that??? I wonder if he briefed them prior to the show on their rights? I also wonder why are we supposed to be glad that the president of the U.S. is engaging with minors for consultation prior to legalizing unconstitutional legislation?? I have seen it all now folks. Ask a 7 year old to write laws now. This is hysterical lunacy.

    I hope no one tells these idiots you can now buy a 8,9,or 10 round revolver and speed loaders.

    20,000 gun laws on the books, nary a criminal is bothered.

    Add 100,000 more, nary a criminal is bothered.

    Clinton’s “assault weapons ban” hasseled law abiding citizens. Nary a criminal was bothered. Columbine massacre right in the middle of it.

    Gun control never has, never did and never will prevent criminal activity.

    Gun control always has been, is and always will be about CONTROL of the law abiding citizen, gradually disarming us so that tyranny can prevail without resistance from the populace.

    This reminds me of when Nancy Reagan declared war on DRUGS! The only thing that happened was that the drug prices went up. That’s pretty much what’s going to happen now, just like drugs the price of guns, magazines or whatever might go up but there will be plenty to go around and plenty of sellers to go with those higher prices. The drug dealers got richer because the government said “You Can’t Have That” now their saying again “You Can’t Have That” makes me want to laugh at the stupidity coming out of their mouths

    Coumo the cooner sounded so ridiculous. He sounded like a FOOL! I wanted to slap that guy out of his liberal lunacy rant.

    Most liberals never had a father. We need to pull their pants down and SPANK them, even whilst adults. Clinton, Kerry, Barry Saetoro, all need a good old fashioned spanking to take them out of their liberal hypnosis they are in.

    When seconds count the Police are only minutes away! The police are not Constitutionally required to protect you. They rarely interrupt a crime. They investigate it and, hopefully, find and arrest the perpetrators. AFTER the crime has been done!

    Is it true that they are putting up new signs on roads leading into New York? Welcome to New York. A free fire state.

    Another reason for James Carville’s comments:

    James Carville, Democrat political consultant extraordinaire – and former Bill Clinton campaign manager, has astonishingly come out and said what all good Republicans have known for decades: Not only are most Democrats politically clueless; they’re easily manipulated by the puppet masters of their party as well. Wow. James Freaking Carville. Of all people. Here’s an excerpt,

    “Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.

    The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.

    Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.

    What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.

    The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a
    clue than there were Republicans.

    Every “Gun Free Zone” is a shooting gallery for the insane criminals.

    Come see us at The Two Minute Conservative, http://tinyurl.com/7jgh7wv and when you speak ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

    Law enforcement officers carry guns for one reason, HIS protection NOT yours. You want a good law enforcement officer when the crime is happening not when the bodies are stiff and the blood coagulated in pools. Why even report a crime after you thwart the attackers aggression, as far as Im concerned they are in public domain and thats not my concern.

    @Gary: You need to be informed. It wasn’t just a “handful” of guys with boxcutters that brought down the twin towers. Go find a few honest science and math teachers and ask them what really happened. There was a yet-to-be-identified support organization that made that happen. As Obama said, “You didn’t build that by yourself.” Ha Ha, funny joke.

    Wow, if guns laws are as good as the left thinks they are, we should ban drugs!
