In the video above, the jefe of the Campaign to Stop Gun Violence opens his mouth and confirms his ignorance on Constitutional law, guns and gun control. But not just intentionally. Ladd “Pro-Gunners Fear FEMA Camps” Everitt demonstrates a breathtaking lack of command of the facts of the matter. For example, at 29:45 (yes I listened that long…you’re welcome), Everitt admits that New York’s post-Newtown SAFE Act went too far . . .
I think that legislation certainly it was rushed. It was done quickly on purpose. And there was stuff in there too like, you know, for example, I understand that, you correct me if I’m wrong on the specifics, but I think originally they limited magazine size to something like six rounds, right? And then there was so much response to that that they then peeled that back to what was it ten maybe fifteen I don’t even know.
Everitt, who works day and night for civilian disarmament in its many forms, didn’t know that the SAFE Act originally limited ammo magazine capacity to seven rounds, and that a court struck it down as a Constitutional infringement (imagine that)? He didn’t/doesn’t know that the current SAFE Act statute stipulates a 10-round maximum magazine capacity limit?
Ironically enough, Everitt goes on to excuse New York lawmakers’ ignorance on guns by saying that “no one expects legislators to be experts on every single topic.”
No, but you’d kind hope that politicians who swear to uphold the United States Constitution would know that the document bars infringement on Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms – a right that’s subject neither to the democratic process or [weak-ass] arguments about social utility.
Here’s a fact: neither Ladd Everitt nor Empire State statists care about Americans’ gun rights. They would abolish them if they could. Sad but true.
