“I’ve come to realize what a good test one’s attitude towards guns is about whether someone’s mind is liberty-oriented. If one is okay with police having guns, or whoever is designated as having ‘authority,’ but panicked at the thought of their fellow man or themselves having guns, then that is someone who does not think like a free person. He places a magical aura around whoever is in charge and only thinks they can wield power. This will come up again in other areas, such as letting government make economic decisions, but fearing individual people making those decisions themselves. Is it any wonder Bloomberg, who is archaically anti-gun, is so hostile to individual freedom in so many other areas? Because, as reflected in his view on gun ownership, he just doesn’t fundamentally buy into the concept of liberty at all.”

BHO’s long-awaited, and hollow “speech” this morning on the subject of the private ownership of guns in the USA:
As always, the president seeks the seizure of extra-Constitutional power in order to punish the innocent, while doing nothing about real criminals, except soliciting their votes. Contrived emotion, and the usual campaign gas. Very little in the way of actual changes to the existing system. However, his rabid hatred for the NRA, all its members, and gun-owners in general, he couldn’t conceal.
His live audience, made up exclusively of pretentiously intolerant liberals, who denigrate all acts of legitimate self-defense, particularly those involving gunfire, in a cynical attempt to piously claim for themselves moral superiority, howled their approval as the president talked vaguely about “safe-gun technology,” but, as always, never waxed specific. He did sheepishly concede that none of what little he is proposing would have prevented any recent mass shooting.
Of course, not a single word about protecting us bona fide American citizens from Islamic terrorists, gang-members, nor other real criminals.
“I’m not trying to confiscate your guns,” he says.
Never believe it! Chicago is his idea of utopia. Like Bloomberg, he doesn’t think like a free person, and insists that none of the rest of us do either!
