States to battle gun rights

| December 9, 2014

Reuters writes that 200 state legislators from 50 states have joined a cute little alliance with a cute little name; American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention founded by a New York State legislator, Brian Kavanagh, from Manhattan’s East Side. he’s a lifelong resident of New York City, so I’m sure there are no West Virginia delegates there listening to him, because he doesn’t know how things are outside his little cocoon there in Manhattan. He’s also a big DeBlasio supporter. Guns scare the shit out of him, so I’m sure his body guards must keep theirs out of sight.

Kavanagh told a news conference the group would focus on state-level gun control reforms, including the prevention of interstate gun trafficking and tightening background checks on buyers.

Congress has “failed in its responsibility” to prevent gun violence, said Jose Rodriguez, a Democratic state senator from Texas.

“We can’t continue in the same path that we’ve been in as a country,” he said.

Yes, so how many of the high profile gun crimes in recent years would have been prevented by more stringent background checks? Beuller? How, exactly would Mr. Rodriguez make up for Congress’ failures? What is wrong with the “path” that we’ve been on?

Lawmakers from eight states were at the news conference, including Virginia, Alabama, New Hampshire and Kansas. The only Republican lawmaker was state Representative Barbara Bollier from Kansas.

Whew! I thought they were serious for a minute. Republican governors run 31 states (probably all states that allow me to carry a concealed weapon) and legislators, especially just the Democrats, have to get legislation past them. Oh, yeah, Republicans control 35 State Senates and 33 State Houses. But, hey, Brian Kavanagh and his little buddies feel better about themselves and isn’t that what it’s really all about? Keep speaking truth to power, there, Bri, that power you’re speaking truth to, is the People, by the way.

Oh, but lest you forget, we are but grubby little peasants rolling around in the mud at their feet. They should not fear us, but they do, because it makes them happy.

Whereas most of us would prefer that bumblebrains like DeBlasio and Bloomerbutt and Kavanagh would find their very own island to live on and leave their rest of us alone, that very wish of ours would leave them without the attention that they so desperately want.

Has anyone besides me noticed that every time the democraps aren’t getting enough attentiont, they throw some kind of tantrum like this?


Let’s get all worked up over a perceived “trend” that is actually going the other direction.

“When considering 5- and 10-year trends, the 2012 estimated violent crime total was 12.9 percent below the 2008 level and 12.2 below the 2003 level.”

And all this when firearms sales reach new highs every year.

But hey, it gets you facetime on the news and makes you look “tough”.

See, there you go again throwing facts and reason into a perfectly good BS argument of fear mongering and attention whoring.

Looks like we still haven’t fired enough of them.


Also ” the prevention of interstate gun trafficking” which for them, I am sure, means to stop gun makers from being able to ship their products to the market.

There are about 7400 state legislators in the country. That’s 200 out of 7400. Yeah, they have a chance.


Jonn–NJ is a may-issue, and a pretty restrictive one at that.

Plus when you throw in Christie’s comments on gun control, that pretty much convinced me never to vote for the guy in 2016, should he run.


Congress has “failed in its responsibility” to prevent gun violence, said Jose Rodriguez, a Democratic state senator from Texas.
“We can’t continue in the same path that we’ve been in as a country,” he said.

Well thanks Jose. Congressman from Alice Texas with an Hispanic or Latino population of 78.05%. A murder rate 10 times the national average. Rape almost twice the national and Assault three times the national averages. Wonder who’s committing those Jose? Wonder how many are illegals aliens like your illegal alien migrant worker parents? How many of those have illegally acquired guns? You and these other “scared straight” gun grabbing morons in the ASLGVP want to look at cleaning up YOUR little town first Jose? Until then, do yourself a big favor and shut the hell up about other backyards.


P.S. Jose “We can’t continue in the same path that we’ve been in as a country,” he said.

How about English as a First language?

It would correctly be, “We can’t continue ON the same path we’ve been ON as a country.” See, grammar, syntax and proper word usage all wok together Congressman in order to make proper, coherent sense. That’s why I’m sure you have English wiz kids on your staff to clean up your egregious personal lack of knowledge and improper usage. TURD.

Brian Kavanagh can kiss my Black Irish ass.
