No not really. But the point is obvious enough: there’s a direct connection between disarmament, discrimination and death. The fact that the Italian Jews in the movie—destined for concentration camps—never mention guns or armed self-defense tells you volumes about the human ability to live in Condition White. We are infinitely capable of ignoring the truth, even as it threatens to destroy us. To the point of absurdity. For example, the first line in the story More than 150 guns turned in by Staten Island residents: “One less gun is another opportunity gone.” Yes! An opportunity for self-defense. An opportunity for people besieged by criminal violence to take back the streets— simply by defending themselves. silive.com’s bias against guns is so blatant they don’t even know they’re doing it . . .
More than 150 guns – mostly handguns – were collected by the NYPD and District Attorney Daniel Donovan’s office yesterday morning and afternoon at St. Philip’s Baptist Church in Port Richmond, making Staten Island a safer place.
Two words: security theater. If it wasn’t so tragic, if people didn’t believe this Big Lie, it would be funny.
You want irony? New York City can’t include religious groups in its 9/11 ceremony honoring innocent lives taken by terrorists, but New York City cops and their taskmasters are happy to set up a state-sponsored pawn shop inside a place of worship to buy firearms.
The process was simple and took about 15 minutes, explained the district attorney. Someone would walk in and surrender a weapon. A police officer would safeguard it and unload it if it carried bullets. The person who disposed of the weapon was given a number that coincided with the firearm. That number was then used to match a cash card to be handed to whomever dropped off the weapon.
“We asked nobody where they obtained it from. We asked nobody’s name,” Donovan said.
I find this “no questions asked aspect” particularly galling. A “real” pawnshop can’t accept a gun without running a NICS background check. How is it that Big Brother can waive that FEDERAL restriction? Besides, why in the world would the police encourage the complete and utter elimination of a potential link between a gun used in a crime and the criminal who used it?
Votes. It’s easier to blame guns fior crime, scoop-up a bunch of broken-ass firearms (the pic somehow doesn’t include the utter dross that savvy “owners” bring to these buy-backs) and claim victory than catch and keep dangerous criminals.
Rev. McBeth said people came in all day, and at one point, briefly spoke to a woman who said she was happy to get rid of a gun that was in her house for a long time.
Another American disarmed by political correctness. And they say we’re winning?
