As usual, The Agitator has excellent commentary on the topic and I recommend you read it. One quote that stood out to me was the below:
San Francisco is a city that’s famous — or notorious — for being liberal, depending on your point of view. But in modern America “liberal” does not reliably mean “an advocate of limited police power” or “a supporter of Fourth Amendment rights.” Nominal “liberals” in government are as eager to milk fear and law-and-order sentiment as the most gravel-knuckled conservative.I have frequent conversations on this topic with a good friend who is for want of a better term; a "classic liberal." He's not a fan of anything Baron Von Bloomberg does, loves his guns, and is usually aghast at what today's "liberals" do. He's a guy that thinks the government should respect the Bill of Rights but do more for its citizens (healthcare) and his military record is...intimidating. Honestly, this is another one of those libertarian moments where both the current Left and the Right blur together because we all know of multiple rights violations by the "conservatives" as well.
Now, our favorite "liberal" Chuck Schumer is at it again. Never one to let a media moment with chance of getting of his face in the national news Schumer has joined Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) have proposed a rider to the current cybersecurity bill that would:
make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition
Now read the accompanying thoughts from the intellectual pygmy Schumer:
Schumer also pointed out that it would be reasonable for the right to recognize that background checks on those buying guns is necessary — as called for in the Brady law. He also said average Americans don’t need an assault weapon to go hunting or protect themselves.
Remember folks; all animals are equal but some are more equal than others. That means that Baron Von Bloomberg can escape to a gun free country toting NYPD officers armed with pistols and assault rifles but we commoners are common and do not need such protection.
The fact that said 100 round drum more than likely caused the Aurora shooter's S&W M&P15 AR15 rifle to malfunction is something gun owners might chuckle over as the nannies attempt to legislate morality via banning inanimate objects for the commoners.
Meanwhile, Baron Von Bloomberg is fairly foaming at the mouth. Guns are a danger to the American public even moreso than large sodas and must be stopped. Comically, Bloomberg urged police to strike over gun control. Even more comical was his belief that "armor piercing bullets" must be banned. This is a classic example of idiocy as the folks that mouth this platitude also insist that they don't mind commoners having "hunting rifles." The fact that any old 30-30, .223, .308, or 30.06 (the most common hunting calibers in America) can penetrate personally worn armor (sans plates) with ease hasn't registered. Bloomberg also believes in the mythical rifle that can "shoot an airplane in flight from a mile away." Obviously, he's not a fan of physics, math, or reality. The moment the police strike is the moment the American public would take self protection much, much more seriously.
Everytime I read about the easily verifiable facts that Bloomberg ignores, Jewish American "liberal" politicians forgetting their own history, and seeing people take advantage of tragedy to trample our rights; I get nauseated. I'm unable to read current events news for a while. One can only hope there's some good news next week.
