“My faith in God is strong, but my faith in our ‘leadership’ is weak”
Abraham Lewis
In a cynical gesture to his Marxist base, JRB has announced that the current pestilence of “gun violence” infesting virtually all our metro areas, particularly those with Democrat mayors, is all caused by federally licensed FFL gun retailers who legally sell guns to people who “shouldn’t have them.”
Yet, according to his own DOJ, the majority of guns used in violent crimes are stolen (many from government armories), or otherwise obtained illegally.
So, placing the blame for violent crime upon legal, licensed FFL retailers would appear to be illogical!
And, the sneering implication that licensed FFL retailers routinely sell guns absent required paperwork and requiem background checks is not supported by any credible data.
And, the blatantly false suggestion that honest, legal American gun-owners are contributing to the ecumenical anarchy we’re seeing across the nation is also not supported by any credible data.
The only real problem JRB has with American gun-owners and gun-retailers is that they don’t vote for him!
The Administration is obviously anxious to make it even more difficult than it already is for beleaguered American citizens to legally acquire guns. Apparently, “people who shouldn’t have guns” fall into a group mostly consisting of non-Democrats and other political opponents.
In metro areas, like NYC, legally acquiring any kind of gun is virtually impossible. The entire process is so labyrinthine, belligerent, expensive, and impossibly slow and ponderous that for all, excluding the mayor’s friends and supporters, it is out of the question. Full compliance with every single law that might apply is inconceivable!
So, as violent gangs take-over entire cities (with scant, and ever-diminishing, police interference), and as hundreds of thousands of illegal, Covid-infected immigrants pour into our country (with absolutely no interference from federal authorities), and with guns and ammunition already in short supply and extremely difficult to obtain legally, the Administration insists that honest, legal American gun-owners and gun-retailers, who have committed no crime, must be punished!
“The right to life is the source of all rights, and the right to property is their only implementation.
“Without property rights, no other rights are possible.
Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life.
The man who produces, while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

Ayn Rand

When we are not allowed to effectively protect ourselves and our property, we are slaves indeed!
