This is What Happens When We Rush To Appease

with 2 comments

Well now we see what happens when the idiots in power rush to appease the masses and further their own causes and political careers.
Every law enforcement officer, active and retired, come this March, will be in violation of the new gun laws in New York State.
Every law enforcement officer (including the governors security detail) carrying a fifteen round magazine could technically be arrested.
This is why we don’t enact bills and pass laws because of knee jerk reactions. Has everyone lost their minds? These are the people who represent us? Fools!
There was no reason for this.

No More Gun Violence in New York (Starting Tomorrow)

with one comment

Oh what a great day!
Once the New York State Senate votes today to pass some of the nations strictest gun laws, there’ll be no more gun violence in New York.
No more armed robberies, no more shootings, no more crimes of any kind involving guns in New York. Tomorrow should be a very quiet, peaceful day.

Isn’t it funny how it’s easier to pass laws effecting law abiding citizens than it is to face the very real problem of illegal gun possession and go after the criminals?
Talk about selling false hope.

Kudos to the New York State Senate

Kudos to the New York State Senate who today voted 38 to 24 against same sex marriage. Finally, politicians get it right.

While I fully support an individuals right to live in whatever “legal” relationship he or she chooses, the sanctity of marriage should continue to be that between a man and a woman.

Gay couples should be afforded the same rights and privileges of married couples, it just shouldn’t be called a marriage.

Majority rule, minority rights.
