“The problem is that the people with the most ridiculous ideas are always the people who are most certain of them.” Bill Maher, The Decider, July 21, 2007
Chicago’s Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has been espousing his opinions on gun control. It really takes a special kind of stupid to believe the things that these Gun-Ban-Nuts try to sell as logical.
On Feb 13, McCarthy asked reporters to stop fueling the “rhetoric” from gun advocates, who oppose Chicago’s gun policy, considered the toughest gun laws in America. McCarthy opposes this characterization stating, “Chicago does not have strict gun laws.” I guess it slipped his mind that it was illegal to own a handgun in Chicago until the Supreme Court stepped in a struck down the ban.
Days later on Feb 17, during an interview with a Chicago radio program, McCarthy continued with his inane philosophy. Apparently he believes that gun-rights advocate groups are corrupting the issue. By his way of thinking, it is a corrupt practice supporting the Bill of Rights, which has been the law of the land for over two centuries.
On Feb 22, McCarthy testified before an Illinois State House committee. McCarthy stated, “I have not seen an illegal gun offender who possesses a FOID card. It just doesn’t happen. The gang members are criminals. They’re not eligible to receive those cards… I have no concern with legal guns. I have a great concern with illegal guns.” In Illinois, a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) is required to own a firearm.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has taken her idiocy to a new level, referring to assault weapons as a “personal pleasure.” Commenting on her quixotic crusade, Feinstein stated, “I intend to fight. I did it once before. If it doesn’t get done right now, be assured I will continue to press the case.” So if it does not pass (i.e. the will of The People), Feinstein has officially and publicly announced that her personal agenda outweighs the desires of The People.
The Gun-Ban-Nuts either have huge stones or are incredibly stupid if they want us to believe the dung they are shoveling. I’m inclined to believe the latter. So we can now document their train of thought…
We Liberals know that you law-abiding citizens are not the cause of all the violence. However, we are going to take away your Constitutional rights, because we do not in individual rights or the principles on which this nation was built. Groups that oppose this are thus corrupt and you only adding to the problem by donating money to such groups.
Further, we concede that criminals are the real problem. We acknowledge they refuse to follow the laws we already have in place. So, we will create new laws to further restrict your rights for gun ownership and certain types of guns we think look really mean. And after all, we can’t have mean looking guns, they must be more deadly that any other kind. We believe that through these measures you will have less guns and that means the criminals (who obtain them illegal) will have fewer guns as well. You must see this makes perfect sense and it will make us safer and happier. Which means we can buy everyone a flying unicorn (Okay, not really. Just checking if you were paying attention) We do not understand why you do not understand how this makes perfect sense and join the rest rest of us in our blissful ignorance.
We will continue to exploit tragic events like mass-shootings and deflect attention away from the mental health issues that surround them. Having you focus on the mental health aspects endemic in this phenomenon does not suit our purposes, so let’s move on.
If we cannot make you understand our point of view we will label you intolerant and possibly a terrorist. We will work with our puppets (the mainstream media and the education system) to breed out further dissent to our way of thinking. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Well, I guess I have a few more brain cells than the sheeple (yes, sheep+people=sheeple) that flock behind these boneheaded ideas. Anyone who applies even a scintilla of logical reasoning, let alone common sense, can see their arguments make no sense. To paraphrase Liberal-Poster-child-Obama-Supporter-In-Chief Bill Maher, they are the biggest supporters of their own B.S.!!!
