Dianne Feinstein is in the news for being the senator who applied for and exercised a concealed weapon permit who also wants to take guns away from everybody else.
Her assault weapons ban is apparently the Democrats’ favorite monster to devour the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution. After Obama gets finished acting like a fascist and imposing gun control by executive order just like the worst leaders in history did.
As a result of Obama’s demagoguing and he and his Democrats’ lying and slandering to exploit the next crisis, gun sales have absolutely skyrocketed during Obama’s first term. And that fever-pitch rush for the people to arm themselves now before it’s too late has only escalated as Obama begins his next term.
Let’s say Obama gets his overturning of the Constitution like he wants. Explain to me how that fascist thug didn’t cause the greatest proliferation of guns as frightened people rushed to buy their guns before Obama’s new dictates took effect.
And a whopping load of those guns are so-called “assault weapons” – because everybody knows that Obama and the Democrats are fascists who are going to take our right to keep and bear arms away and they want to make sure they get the guns that Obama wants to seize from us first.
Hey, if you want to reduce the number of guns, do you think Obama’s presidency did a good job of that? I mean, hell, Obama HIMSELF was dealing thousands of assault weapons by proxy to Mexican drug cartels. That’s how you can know that gun sales under Obama have skyrocketed like nothing ever has skyrocketed before.
And this is going to make any kind of intelligent gun control so much more difficult. Because there are 300 million plus guns in America. And as long as a thug or a murderer can get his hands on one, I want to be able to get MY hands on one, too. And gun laws disarm the innocent people while allowing the guilty people to buy guns illegally and then exploit the fact that they’re going to be the only ones with guns when they crash into your house and round up your family for their night of fun before they kill you all.
And Obama has now added massively to that giant stash of guns in America. Since he was elected in November 2008, Obama has panicked Americans into buying 67 million more guns. And I mean, to put it in perspective, in just the last two months of 2012, Obama panicked Americans into buying more than enough guns to arm both the 2.29 million active members in the Chinese Army AND the 1.13 million active members in the Indian Army.
Now, assuming that you’re not a rabid Obama worshiping ideologue but rather somebody who actually wants to see fewer guns on the streets, how can you argue that Obama did anything but create a mass panic??? How could you possibly argue that what Democrats have done was the right way to have a responsible discussion about gun control versus the 2nd Amendment???
Have we ever seen a failure like this before?
Yes. And frighteningly, it was an even bigger failure because it started out as a giant success.
I want to point out a little bit of history. Once upon a time shy of a half century ago, there was an illegal drug called “meth.” Oh, you’ve heard of it? And Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein decided to win that war with government regulation. She made it harder than hell for all Californians to purchase any product containing pseudoephedrine. Because pseudoephedrine was an ingredient in meth, you see. And by exercising a fascist takeover of a private industry, Dianne Feinstein and Democrats believed that they could use raw government force shut down the meth problem. You know, kind of like they think they can shut the gun problem down.
What happened? Well, it’s interesting. To begin with, you’re still a casualty of the war Democrats waged against pseudoephedrine. You’ve got to fill our government paperwork and show ID up the whazoo. And hence criminals will be unable to get the ingredient pseudoephedrine and the drug labs will shut down. And of course they largely killed a thriving product by largely shutting it down so the government could solve the drug problem.
Was it a brilliant idea? Is it a story that ought to give liberals hope about how good a job Democrats can be at taking away guns??? Nope. Not even close.
You see, when meth labs had access to even more abundant supplies of pseudoephedrine, they used a process that generated an incredibly powerful ammonia odor that could be smelled from significant distances. So the labs had to locate way out in the boonies to cook their product. And that slowed down the manufacturing process considerably.
Then Dianne Feinstein and the Democrat Party stepped in with their government ban. And helped the drug makers overcome their inability to manufacture their product in cities.
You want to know what happened? The meth makers very quickly found a different way to make meth. They now use a method that is virtually odorless – so the process can be kicked into high gear in ordinary households in ordinary cities. And its so portable you can now manufacture meth in your car. As a result, meth production and hence meth addiction have skyrocketed. Now they can make it right across the street from your kid’s elementary school. And so what if they blow up next door to you?
All because the same stupid Democrats who think they can solve the drug problem by attacking legitimate private industry can solve the gun problem by attacking ordinary Americans exercising their 2nd Amendment protection.
Here’s the story on what happened with the meth production:
More meth labs showing up in cities, suburbs
Not just a rural drug anymore: Experts say more meth labs showing up in cities, suburbs
By Jim Salter, Associated Press | Associated Press – Thu, Dec 27, 2012
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Methamphetamine lab seizures are on the rise in the nation’s cities and suburbs, raising new concerns about a lethal drug that has long been the scourge of rural America.
Data and interviews from an investigation by The Associated Press found growing numbers of meth lab seizures in cities such as St. Louis, Kansas City, Mo., Nashville, Tenn., and Evansville, Ind. Authorities are also seeing evidence that inner-city gangs are becoming involved in meth production and distribution.
“No question about it — there are more labs in the urban areas,” said Tom Farmer, coordinator of the Tennessee Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Task Force. “I’m seeing car fires from meth in urban areas now, more people getting burned.”
The increase in labs is especially troubling because meth brought into the U.S. from Mexico also is becoming more pervasive in urban areas. The Associated Press reported in October that so-called Mexican “super labs” are upping production, making meth more pure and less expensive, and then using existing drug pipelines in big cities.
Data obtained by AP shows that homemade meth is on the rise in metropolitan areas, too.
— St. Louis County had just 30 lab seizures in 2009, but 83 through July 31, putting it on pace for 142 in 2012. The city of St. Louis had eight in 2009 and is on pace for 50 this year.
— Jackson County, Mo., (which includes Kansas City) had 21 seizures in 2009 and is on pace for 65 this year.
— Meth lab seizures have tripled in the Nashville area over the past two years. In one case in late 2011, a man and his girlfriend were accused of recruiting more than three dozen people, including some who were homeless, to visit multiple pharmacies and purchase the legal limit of cold pills containing pseudoephedrine, a key meth ingredient. The couple and 37 others were indicted.
— The Evansville, Ind., area has seen a more than 500 percent rise in meth seizures since 2010, with 82 in 2011.
Authorities cite numerous reasons for meth moving into cities, but chief among them is the rise in so-called “one-pot” or “shake-and-bake” meth.
In years past, meth was cooked in a makeshift lab. The strong ammonia-like smell carried over a wide area, so to avoid detection, meth had to be made in backwoods locations.
As laws limited the availability of pseudoephedrine, meth-makers adjusted with a faster process that creates smaller batches simply by combining ingredients — mixing cold pills with toxic substances such as battery acid or drain cleaner — in 2-liter soda bottles. Shake-and-bake meth can be made quickly with little odor in a home, apartment, hotel, even a car.
“Bad guys have figured it out,” said Rusty Payne of the federal Drug Enforcement Agency. “You don’t have to be as clandestine — you don’t have to be in rural country to lay low.”
Niki Crawford, who heads the meth suppression team in Indiana, said that with shake-and-bake labs, “the odors are not as strong. And they’re just so portable. We find them in backpacks and gym bags.”
And inside stores: A woman was arrested inside a St. Louis County Wal-Mart earlier this year with a meth-filled soda bottle in her coat pocket.
Another reason for the rise in urban meth is a process known among law enforcement as “smurfing” —the abundance of pharmacies in cities attracts meth-makers from surrounding rural areas, who can bring in friends to help purchase pseudoephedrine pills.
“We know the fuel for domestic labs is pseudoephedrine,” Farmer said. “The source for that is pharmacies and the majority of pharmacies are in urban areas.”
Farmer also has seen an increase in meth activity involving inner-city Tennessee gangs, which tend to be better-organized than rural cookers when it comes to marketing and selling the drug. For the most part, the gang members work as smurfers, though Farmer worries they’ll eventually become involved in the manufacture and distribution of the drug. Sometimes, gang members and meth-makers first connect while in prison.
“They see there’s a market there to make money off of pseudoephedrine,” Farmer said. “Pseudoephedrine has become as good as currency.”
Missouri State Highway Patrol statistics are indicative of the growing urban concern: All four of the top meth counties in Missouri were in the metropolitan St. Louis area — Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Louis and Franklin.
Ed Begley, a St. Louis County meth detective, said the drug is attracting users from all socio-economic levels.
“Lower class all the way up to upper middle class,” Begley said. “We’ve even had retired folks who have become addicted. It’s a brutal drug.”
You see, the problem is that you can’t completely shut down pseudoephedrine production. Why? Because it’s simply the best drug for congestion ever made. And Democrat politicians get colds, too, you know. Also, how are the drug makers getting their pseudoephedrine? Largely by getting the welfare-slacking life-failures the Democrats subsidize to purchase it for them in exchange for a few bucks a month. Let’s call that welfare from meth makers. And it’s shockingly pervasive and the problem is exploding out of control. Feinstein and Democrats did absolutely nothing to reduce the drug trade with their nanny-state fascism and instead made the problem worse. In the same way, you ought to know that you can’t shut down gun production, either. Because what would they protect Obama and his family with if they absolutely banned guns??? As long as Democrats can get colds and need some pseudoephedrine, and as long as Obama needs the guns to protect himself and his family that he wants to take away from you, we’re going to have the same sorts of government-caused disasters. And don’t think for a second that guns won’t find their way across the border on the backs of the illegal immigrants who are streaming into America with Democrats’ abetting.
The Obama City of Chicago has a complete ban on handguns. And there are so many gun homicides from the criminals who know that they can prey on helpless people shooting more people than are dying in our worst war zone. 310 Americans were killed in Afghanistan with a total of 405 Coalition deaths. That compared to 532 homicides in the Democrat-owned city of Chicago. That ought to tell you how well Democrats’ fascist power-grabs to seize all the guns will have on gun crime.
“No one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer,” Cuomo said. “End the madness now! […]
“Let’s lead the way once again in saving lives,” Cuomo said in an often rousing speech that some observers said better positioned the Democrat for a 2016 run for president. […]
“New York leads the nation, it’s time New York lead the nation in this,” Silver said. His priorities are bans on assault rifles and high-capacity magazines of ammunition.
Well, first of all, where the hell does the 2nd Amendment limit the right to keep and bear arms in order to hunt and not to be able to defend yourself??? That genuinely idiotic statement dismissed, I can also personally testify as a hunter that I have seen a fair number of hunters using “assault weapons” to hunt. They are excellent multi-purpose weapons and in fact they are excellent deer rifles. As for Cumo’s statement about “ten rounds,” well, on that argument Cuomo’s fascist Democrats ought to ban all weapons but flintlocks on the view that “no one needs” more than ONE bullet.
But that said, Cuomo’s speech was also idiotic in claiming that New York “leads the way” in banning guns. Chicago leads the way in banning guns. And if Cuomo wants people to consider the effects of his stupid and immoral and unconstitutional and frankly fascist laws, they have only to look at that city on a hill for Obama’s policies, Chicago.
Oh, we just found a new way for criminals to get guns, by the way. They can depend on liberals who staff newspapers such as the Journal News and the leftist blog Gawker to publish the names and addresses of gun owners. So that criminals can break into their homes and steal the guns, we now know.
You still think these demoniacs can keep guns out of criminals’ hands, do you?
What Obama is demagoguing might seem to make sense to you. I’m sure Dianne Feinstein’s takeover of the pseudoephedrine industry made sense to you, too.
Unfortunately, what Democrats are now demagoguing on guns not only won’t work, but it will make gun crime far, FAR worse than it ever was.
Which is why so many million Americans have rushed to buy their guns before Obama the dictator takes them away.
I believe that a great many Americans realize that something bad is coming. The sheer number of gun purchases is unreal. I think a lot of people realize that after Obama implodes America, the Antichrist from the Bible will come.
