Chicago Police Chief Spews Liberal Fascist Propaganda

The vast majority of Chicago shooting deaths are the result of blacks shooting other blacks because the Democrats Great Society has enslaved 3 generations of black people to failure and living on the Democrats Vote Plantation.

Chicago’s Chief of Police, who previously blamed ”government-sponsored racism” and Sarah Palin for Chicago’s gun violence, recently declared that the lawful exercise of the Second Amendment was a threat to public safety

From the Illinois State Rifle Association:

Chicago’s embattled police superintendent dug himself deeper into a pit of controversy today by claiming that lawful firearm owners are agents of political corruption.  Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety.  McCarthy went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls when interpreting our Constitution.

After totally dismissing the citizen’s right to redress grievances, McCarthy trained his constitutional wisdom on the 2nd Amendment.  Despite recent court decisions to the contrary, McCarthy opined that the 2ndAmendment limits citizens to owning smooth-bore muskets.  McCarthy went on to say that he believes that the 2nd Amendment supports mandatory liability insurance for firearm owners and the mandatory application of GPS tracking devices to civilian owned firearms.

“ Garry McCarthy ’s understanding of our Constitution barely qualifies him as a meter maid, never mind the chief of the nation’s third largest police department,” commented ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson .  “What on earth would possess McCarthy to assert that constitutional rights should be meted out based on public opinion polls?  Let’s not forget that public opinion polls once opposed a woman’s right to vote while it would be a safe bet that, at one time, polls would have shown lynching as an acceptable form of justice.  It has been said that our Constitution exists to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.  McCarthy’s view of our Constitution is dangerous and unbecoming of a civil servant.”

“McCarthy needs to understand that the lawful firearm owners of this state will continue to lobby their representatives and continue to support candidates who represent their interests,” continued Pearson.  “If Garry McCarthy doesn’t like that, well that’s just too bad.  If McCarthy is so interested in influence peddling, he should pop into some of the gin mills ringing the Illinois Capitol and count the ruddy red noses of taxpayer-funded lobbyists for the City of Chicago.”

The Founders were quite clear on their views regarding firearms. In fact, earlier proposed language of the Second Amendment read as such:

And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.

- Samuel Adams (February 6, 1788); Charles Hale, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (1856)

From Jefferson’s drafts of the Virginia constitution:

“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

Noah Webster:

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.

There is no question that the chief concern motivating the inclusion of the Second Amendment was to protect the citizenry from tyranny at home.

“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of the body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”
Thomas Jefferson


States Step Up War on Second Amendment Civil Rights

Missouri Democrats introduced an anti-gun bill which would turn law-abiding firearm owners into criminals. They will have 90 days to turn in their guns if the legislation is passed. Similar legislation has been proposed in Minnesota, New Jersey and Colorado. 

There are consequences to elections.  This is what happens when we dont exercise our voting rights.  We are loosing our other civil rights as we travel down the road to tyranny.  This is the Obamanation:

Dana Loesch Radio reported on the new legislation being pushed by Missouri Democrats:

Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution.

Here’s part of the Democratic proposal in Missouri:

4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:

(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;

(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or

(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.

5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.


Gun Bans Increase Violent Crime Including Murder Rate

Senator Ted CRUZ: San Antonio has 7 murders per 100,000 people. Austin has four murders per 100,00 people. El Paso has two murders per 100,000 people. That means Detroit, the murder rate is 24 times higher than it is in El Paso…None of those cities I discussed, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, are isolated islands. Indeed, in the entire state [of Texas] you can purchase firearms and what we see with the murder rates is that the murder rates are consistently lower. My question to you, is not your subjective beliefs, but are you aware of any empirical data — every one of us wants to reduce murder rates — my question to you is there any basis to say that stripping the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens would result in decreasing murder rates rather than increasing them which, unfortunately, is the pattern I think we’ve seen.


One Shot is Seldom Enough to Stop a Home Invader

A man who broke into an occupied home early Sunday in Chehalis, Washington. The home invader was shot by the homeowner, according to the Lewis County Sheriffs Office.

Deputies arrived at the home shortly before 5 a.m. and discovered the home invader with a single gunshot wound.  Deputies say a 51-year-old man broke into the home where a 24-year-old man and his wife were sleeping.  The owner called 911, then armed  himself with a pistol while waiting for deputies to arrive.

During the home invasion, the suspect charged down a hallway toward the homeowner, who fired a single shot, hitting the suspect. The two men then became  involved in struggle until the suspect was able to break free.

The homeowner than caught up with the suspect and held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

A neighbor saw the suspect earlier Sunday morning, rummaging through boxes on his patio. The man chased him away.

Brad Reynolds, a retired police officer, runs the neighborhood watch.  

I think it proves the point that we need guns, he said. I am armed.  I am always armed.

Everybody involved in the scenario last night was part of our neighborhood watch program with the exception of the guy laying in Harborview with a bullet in him,” he said.

Reynolds set up the watch because of a house he believes has had a steady stream of bad tenants. The suspect was living there, and told police he was on meth.

Neighbors were warned about the suspect just hours before.  Reynolds sent an e-mail Saturday, notifying others the suspect had moved in and to be aware. Neighbors were told that he had a criminal history. Twelve hours later, hes breaking into homes and getting himself shot,” said Reynolds.

The home invader was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was listed in stable condition.

National Institute of Justice statistics show that persons who resist crime with a firearm are less likely to be injured, or are likely to be injured less severely, than persons who either cooperate (do not resist at all) or resist by any other means. Amazingly, that remains true even if the assailant is armed with a gun. – Jeffrey R. Snyder


How Progressive Propaganda Fools the Useful Idiots

The First Amendment is being used to destroy the other nine, starting with the Second. We have Obamacare, record trillion dollar deficits, and a declining economy because of the main stream media. There is no Obama without the Progressive Propaganda Machine.

Gallup Polls show that most Americans do not have confidence in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. In 2011 a 60% majority reported a perception of media bias, with 47% saying mass media was too liberal, 13% too conservative. Prevalence of the perception of bias was highest among partisans, with 78% of conservatives reporting a perception of bias, 53% of liberals reporting a perception of bias and 46% of moderates reporting a perception of bias. Those who view mass media reporting as just about right was polled at 36%. According to Gallup, in every year since 2002 more Americans think the media show liberal bias.

Insight from the far left Boston publication, The Atlantic, on how the workings of progressive propaganda:

Here is how advocates of gun control used to talk about their cause: They openly disputed that the Second Amendment conferred the right to own a gun. Their major policy goals were to make handguns illegal and enroll all U.S. gun owners in a federal database. The group now known as the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence was once known as Handgun Control Inc.; a 2001 book by the executive director of the Violence Policy Center was entitled Every Handgun Is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.

Contrast that with what you see today: Gun-control groups dont even use the term gun control, with its big-government implications, favoring preventing gun violence instead. Democrat politicians preface every appeal for reform with a paean to the rights enshrined in the Second Amendment and bend over backwards to assure law-abiding gun owners they mean them no ill will. Even the president, a Chicago liberal who once derided rural voters tendency to cling to guns or religion, seeks to assure gun enthusiasts hes one of them by citing a heretofore-unknown enthusiasm for skeet shooting, adding, I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.

A frequent question in the current battle over gun control is why anyone should expect reform to succeed now when its failed repeatedly for the last 20 years. Maybe this is why: Between then and now, the gun banners got smarter. The liberal fascists have radically changed their message into one thats more appealing to the useful idiots, known as moderate voters.

The gun banners still want to undercut the Second Amendment, confiscate law-abiding Americans legally acquired firearms, and instigate federal-government monitoring of all gun owners. Theyre simply lying to achieve thier goal, something Obama has done since the day he starting running for President.

Federal licensing and registration as a requirement for gun ownership was a top policy goal in the 2000 Democratic presidential primary, then-Vice President Al Gore came out in favor of photo licenses for gun owners, drawing criticism from Senator Bill Bradley, who supported the further step of registering every gun. National bans on handguns were also on the agenda: One such proposal, introduced in the House and Senate in 1993, would have prohibit[ed] the transfer or possession of handguns and handgun ammunition, except in limited circumstances, requiring current handgun owners to turn in their weapons over the course of a six-month grace period.

The idea that the Second Amendment didnt confer an individual right to own a gun, has always been a mainstream media view and part of the gun-control movements gospel.

In the Heller decision, The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the right of citizens to keep and bear firearms existed, knocking down the D.C. handgun ban in the process.

This sudden Democrat embrace of the Second Amendment has turned the Rocky Mountain West into a swing region. Harry Reid has a lifetime B rating from the NRA and in 2010 shared the stage with LaPierre at the opening of a gun range in Las Vegas for which Reid had secured federal land and a $61 million earmark. Reid owes his majority to the Democrats successful propaganda, which has rebranded them as pro-Second Amendment and is winning over rural, blue-collar, and Western useful idiots.

Wake up America. The gun banners goal will never change. They are coming after your guns. They just got smarter about the way they go about it.

Gun control? We need bullet control. I think every bullet should cost $5,000 dollars.-
Chris Rock
