Remember those old Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoons? The Road Runner would be flying around, enjoying his freedom with the liberty that his speed gave him while Wile E. Coyote would try and stop him with convoluted and illogical contraptions and plans. I cannot help but draw a comparison to gun controllers who, especially after losing, come up with some of the most asinine explanations for the loss as well as further propagating the idea that the next giant slingshot or rocket powered roller skates are going to work . . .
Recently, with the loss of two gun control Colorado state senators, Angela Giron and John Morse, anti-liberty governor Hickenlooper came out with this gem:
Politics revolves around certain issues how people talk about them and how people’s emotions respond to them and often perceived reality more important than the facts.
I’m sorry, but didn’t this whole thing came about because, like a ghoul, you exploited a tragedy and pushed for measures that do nothing to actually prevent further ones? You basically preyed on the emotions of people in the wake of a tragedy in order to jam this down the throats of Coloradans and since THEY had the GALL to fight back, all of a sudden they are the ignorant masses who you need to educate better with “the facts”.
Hickenlooper added the defeat was from a very loud “minority”. Once again showing the cartoonish nature of gun controllers. Just like Wile E. Coyote thinking his hairbrained contraption failed due to bad luck he plods on with another hairbrained contraption, so too do gun controllers think that it is always a small minority, or the NRA, or some other boogeyman who foil their plans when in truth it is the silent majority who wake and dole out retribution when they have been pushed too far.
But exploiting tragedy, shoving worthless legislation that promotes their agenda down the peoples’ throats, and then panning any dissent as uneducated, lobby-backed, emotionally charged nonsense from a “loud minority” is the gun controller’s modus operandi.
It’s what happened in New York with the SAFE act when Gov. Cuomo changed the rules forcing an immediate vote on it so that the people didn’t have their customary 3 days in order to voice an opinion. Because, frankly, Mr. Cuomo didn’t want to hear the peoples’ opinion. That right there is some cartoon villainy.
Now that the Sheriffs in New York have all but revolted against both Cuomo and the SAFE Act by refusing to enforce any of it, Cuomo is trying to marginalize them as out of touch cowboys. Cuomo also possesses the trait of most gun controllers have of hypocrisy saying:
The law is the law. It’s not their job to pick and choose, and that obviously would be a dangerous and frightening precedent. Enforce all the laws, that’s their job.
Where to begin on that one…hmmm…all the laws? What about Federal immigration laws in New York City? Are you pushing for those laws to be enforced? What about the 3 day waiting period on new legislation you waived for a bill that wouldn’t take effect for months? I guess you didn’t want to hear from the “loud minority”.
But from Colorado, to Illinois to New York and pretty much everywhere in between, gun rights are moving forward and those who oppose the liberty and freedom that they represent are feeling the pinch. Be it in Colorado where politicians are losing their jobs, Illinois where the Chicago machine is left impotent to stop concealed carry, or in upstate New York where there is open revolt against the constitutional infringements levied there.
All the while gun controllers are saying it’s just a small group against them and the gun control movement will have its revenge.
Yeah…they keep talking about how they have ALL this support; yet talk of revenge comes across like this:
When you are fighting to ensure liberty and freedom like those who defend the 2nd Amendment, you don’t need the convoluted plans or the hair-brained oversized acme fly swatter.
And like Wile E. Coyote who has run off a cliff but does not acknowledge it, the gun controllers will eventually look down and realize that they are not standing on anything, and will plummet from the scene.
