The Politics of Failure- Politicians Find Someone to Blame for Failed Gun Control

October 12, 2015

cuomo safe act

A lawyer working for NY Governor Andrew Cuomo was shot at a 2am party in Brooklyn.  This would normally be a tragic loss.  Governor Cuomo turned it into a political disaster because of New York’s bizarre gun control laws.  To believe the governor’s rhetoric, the other hundred million firearms in America remained inert and harmless, but this gun in New York went on a rampage.  The gun did it.

Here is the obvious truth the governor wants to hide.  State laws don’t protect us from violence.  The police don’t protect us.  In fact, New York citizens have been left unarmed and vulnerable.. unless they are a politician or rich campaign contributor.  Then they can have their own security detail or carry concealed.

don't disarm

Well, duhh!

So what is a corrupt politician to do?  Do something, anything, before citizens realize they must protect themselves.

That is why Cuomo blamed the gun.  Some magic made the gun do it, some evil gun-voodoo magic brought that gun to life.  Cuomo proscribed more political voodoo in the form of more gun control.  Cuomo doesn’t have a choice.  The governor MUST jump to the podium and perform the anti-gun voodoo dance in front of the media before anyone puts together the obvious facts.

gate in a prarieThe facts are New York is gun control heaven.  Everything an honest gun owner does in New York State is regulated, forbidden, restricted, permitted, licensed and monitored.  New York State gets an “A” rating by the gun control groups.  Governor Cuomo has to shout the gun-control voodoo chant before someone asks why all those gun control laws failed as another criminal thug shot an innocent unarmed man in New York City.


The governor’s solution is to yell louder in front of the TV cameras.  ‘Stop government until we get even more ineffective gun laws!’ he says.

Cuomo will do anything to distract us from the obvious.

Obama teleprompter

President Obama did the same thing after nine Christians were murdered at an Oregon community college.  The President threatened to use his phone and his pen to do.. something.  Obama didn’t say what, only that gun laws and gun owners were broken and needed to be fixed.

President Obama didn’t tell you that Oregon already has mandatory universal background checks for firearms owners.  That means private gun sales are illegal.  The media didn’t tell you the murderer at the Oregon community college passed all his background checks.  Oregon also has mandatory mental health reporting requirements for firearms purchases.  Those requirements didn’t identify the murderer.  Oregon goes so far to disarm people with a record of violent crimes, even if those crimes were committed as a juvenile.  You didn’t hear about that in the news reports after the shooting.

There is more.  This community college in Oregon required staff and students to keep their legally owned firearms off campus.  Yes, that regulation applied to the murderer since he was a student.  Officially, the campus was a gun-free zone and even the lone security guard was disarmed.

The media didn’t tell you that Oregon gun control laws were a colossal failure.  I’ll tell you.

Gun control advocates got the laws they wanted and more people died as a result.

That is why President Obama had to jump to his teleprompter.  He had to fill the media vacuum with a meaningless speech where he talked about himself every 30 seconds and threatened to disarm honest gun owners.  President Obama blamed the National Rifle Association for the murders, even though the NRA has been begging for armed school guards for the last three years.

The president didn’t have a choice.  The mass murder showed that Oregon’s strict gun laws failed. And no innocent failure, but a fatal failure. The president had to find a sacrificial scapegoat to blame.

Look at the history of mass public murders and the conclusions are obvious.  Gun control failed.  Gun free zones only disarmed honest gun owners.  These areas became hunting preserves for violent sociopaths.  Universal background checks failed to stop criminals and crazies from getting guns.  Our most skilled mental health professionals can’t tell which of their patients will turn violent.  Those are the facts.

That is why gun control advocates like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and President Barack Obama had to cry in front of the teleprompter.  They need someone to blame.  Gun owners and the NRA are their chosen scapegoat.

The politician’s plan might work unless more citizens hear the facts.  Please spread the truth.

    Once again, WHEN did a person lying dead from a mugging in an alley become “morally superior” to another person explaining to the police in that same alley how the mugger got a hole in his chest?

    The hard-left Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the MSM media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United Stat

    Second Amendment foes lying about gun control – The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with personal self-defense.Firearms are our constitutionally mandated safeguard against tyranny by a powerful federal government. Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control.

    No matter what any president, senator, congressman, or hard-left mainstream media hookers tell you concerning the statist utopian fantasy of safety and security through further gun control: They are lying. If their lips are moving, they are lying about gun control. These despots truly hate America.

    These tyrants hate freedom, liberty, personal responsibility, and private property. But the reality is that our citizens’ ownership of firearms serves as a concrete deterrent against despotism. They are demanding to hold the absolute power of life and death over you and your family. Ask the six million Jews, and the other five million murdered martyrs who perished in the Nazi death camps, how being disarmed by a powerful tyranny ended any chances of fighting back. Ask the murdered martyrs of the Warsaw Ghetto about gun control.
    Their single agenda is to control you after you are disarmed. When the people who want to control you hold the absolute power of life and death over your family, you have been enslaved. The hard-left Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the MSM media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States into becoming an unarmed population. Unarmed populations have been treated as slaves and chattel since the dawn of history.

    Will we stand our ground, maintaining our constitutionally guaranteed Second Amendment rights, fighting those who would enslave us?

    Having watched NY gun owners — nearly 10% of them — obediently register their evil black rifles, Cuomo is so thrilled with the underwhelming success of the NYSAFE Act that he wants to do it again!

    I recall a quote by Einstein about insanity and doing the same thing repeatedly.

    Cuomo doesn’t yet realize that the game is over. Perhaps he’ll find out after his next law is widely ignored; perhaps not.

    I am glad that Obama and Cuomo spout thier inane reteric. Only fools believe them and you can’t fix stupid. Meanwhile, the number of NICS checks in 2015 is on pace to break the 2013 record. I also track the number of guns using the ATF report. Look at the number of guns manufactured in the US each year, plus imports and minus exports. In 2007 that number was 6,461,824. In 2013 it was 16,031210. That is an increase of 148%! The only (non-crony capitalism) industry that has done well over the last handfull of years is the gun industry. Thanks Obama. But we are just “bitter clingers”.

    I am not sure that the 9 Oregon victims were all Christians.

    What anti-gun zealots fail to understand or refuse to admit is that every mass shooting is an example of the *success* of their policies. What is worse, they want to extend the ‘gun-free’ status of schools, churches, etc. to the entire country. This is common sense?
