“I have a very strict gun control policy: if there’s a gun around, I want to be in control of it.” — Clint Eastwood
“A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.” — Larry Elder
“Remember the first rule of gunfighting … have a gun.” — Jeff Cooper
“When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.” — Clint Smith
“In England, if you commit a crime, the police don’t have a gun and you don’t have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say ‘Stop, or I’ll say stop again.'” — Robin Williams
“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.” — Sigmund Freud
“The Attorney General asserted that he has a ‘vast amount of discretion’ about how he does or doesn’t choose to enforce our nation’s laws. Which doesn’t make them laws so much as whimsical suggestions.” — Stilton Jarlsberg
It’s interesting, isn’t it, that Democratic politicians, the most rabid of whom are protected 24/7 by armed bodyguards, are forever demanding the confiscation of everyone’s means of defense except their own. The motives of these left-wing elitists would be less suspect if they concentrated on disarming criminals instead of law abiding gun owners, but then that would make them conservatives, and we wouldn’t be having this discussion in the first place.
The contemptible Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s increasingly testy Attorney General, has spent his time in office enforcing only those federal laws which he and the rest of Obama’s executive branch radicals deem agenda-worthy, while blithely ignoring the rest. Holder calls such arbitrary malfeasance “prosecutorial discretion” and cites “racism” and the enmity of the “gun lobby” as the only reasons he and his boss have encountered any resistance to their unconstitutional schemes.
Attorney General Holder dropped the race card on the table today, throwing down a clear suggestion that the mistreatment he thinks he’s getting from Republicans is based not on the content of his character – which actually, it is – but on the color of his skin.
Charging “racism” is, of course, the preferred defense of every scoundrel of color in these enlightened times, as well as being the approved rejoinder of the Democratic Party to anyone astute enough to disagree with their boneheaded ideas.
Obama, Holder, and the rest of the Red-winged radicals currently roosting in the nation’s capitol are not our best; and, given the disastrous nature of the policies foisted on us over the last 5 years, they’re a long way from being our brightest. Take Holder’s latest hare-brained proposal — fitting lawful gun owners with government tracking bracelets:
… when some screaming maniac chainsaws his way into your house on a dark and stormy night and is shredding the closet door behind which your terrified family is huddling, do you want your gun disabled because of a complicated, fallible electronic ID bracelet designed by the same techno-idiots who came up with Healthcare.gov? (“Error 404 – Try Shooting Later!”)
Clearly, there’s a pretty wild disparity between Holder’s belief that such an ID system for gun owners is simply “common sense,” while a photo ID system for voters is, in his words, an “aggressive step to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans.” (Byte the Bullet)
On the other hand, there are lots of dangerous people in this country who need to be closely monitored. And most of ’em have a (D) after their names.
