New Jersey is where gun rights go to die. The Garden State’s concealed carry laws, for example, are “may issue” — but only in the sense that Hell may freeze over. And now that New Jersey has elected a Democratic governor who’s pledged to sign any gun control law that makes it to his desk . . .
things are only going to get worse. Luckily, New Jersey’s mainstream media is sounding the alarm on the ongoing degradation of their residents’ gun rights. Oh wait. They’re not . . .
At the police firing range in a desolate industrial area of the city, a detective took aim at the target, a grey cinder block.
He raised the BCM assault-style rifle, telescoping shoulder stock pressed firmly against his right shoulder, left hand on a grip in the front, and fired with a loud crack.
The concrete block at the other end of the range exploded violently, as if it had been hit by a cannon.
The guns being taken off the streets in Newark these days often range from the firepower of a combat weapon, to modern semi-automatics little different than those carried by police. And in a place where gang violence and illicit drug dealing account for much of its serious crime, there has been a big surge this year in the number that are turning up.
Nicely played! If you’re a gun control advocate looking to scare ignorant readers into the usual state of firearms-related ignorance and fear.
A description that surely applies to nj.com writer Ted Sherman (above). Speaking of ignorance . . .
Days later, police recovered a .9mm handgun that had been reported stolen out of an unoccupied apartment in West Virginia. And a 15-year-old kid was arrested at a charter school with a loaded .9mm pistol . . .
According to court documents, David Potts came on the radar screen of the ATF after an informant told them he had three guns he was offering for sale: a .40 caliber, a .45 caliber and a .9 mm. In an affidavit filed with the complaint, an AFT special agent said Potts had told the informant the firearms were coming up from Georgia and were “brand new in the box.” The price: $600 each.
For those new to the firearms freedom fold, there’s no such thing as a handgun chambered in .9mm. It’s 9mm. And there’s no such thing as a law that will stop the flow of black market goods from supply to demand, from one state to another.
Mr. Sherman is promoting the party line for one simple reason: gun control heavy states can only push only one halfway credible (but false) excuse for why it’s “tough” gun control laws don’t work. It wazzunt me!
Only it is you who makes it impossible for honest citizens to protect themselves against criminal, crazies, terrorists and proto-fascist governments, like the one ruling New Jersey.
