The War on Guns: It's 'The Carolyn McCarthy Show'

The War on Guns: It's 'The Carolyn McCarthy Show'

This matches exactly with my I Never Knew One Existed post.

The 2nd Amendment Today Part I

Straight From the Whitehouse: I Will Infringe on the Rights of Gunowners

"Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade."[link]

OH, MY! We can not allow local law enforcement to be uninformed about vital information dealing with ongoing criminal investigations can we?

But wait lets dig into this a bit deeper...a few snippets if you will
  • Releasing the information serves no useful purpose.
  • Traced guns aren’t always “crime guns”; firearms may be traced for reasons unrelated to any armed crime.
  • Trace information remains available for law enforcement use.[Wait a minute I thought this was one of their reasons for wanting to repeal, that law enforcement did not have access?]
  • Both BATFE and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) oppose release of trace data.
  • Even the current language has allowed too many disclosures of sensitive information.

Sounds to me like the only thing gained from repealing this would be to further his (Obama) anti-2nd Amendment agenda.

I Never Knew One Even Existed

A pro-2nd Amendment politician from NЗw YoЯk?! But of course we then get this from a "lawmaker" in the same state, "Rep. Carolyn McCarthy said yesterday Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand's gun control views make her unacceptable for the U.S. Senate" [link]

Now just try and explain to me how someone who supports the United States Constitution is unacceptable for a seat in a body who's every member takes an oath to uphold the Constitution?

Sounds to me like we need to start finding a bunch of short ropes and tall trees to deal with all the treason that is going around in Washington.

Quote for the Day

"If the government gets into business on any large scale, we soon find that the beneficiaries attempt to play a large part in the control. While in theory it is to serve the public, in practice it will be very largely serving private interests." -- Calvin Coolidge
