“No one wants to take your guns,” NM v. 02-28-2020

Filed under: Media, Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:46 PM (20:46)

From page A15 of the Friday, 28 February 2020 edition of the Albuquerque Journal, we have not one, but two “gems of wisdom.”

First, the writer labels anyone that owns or carries a firearm a “gun possessor,” and makes NO attempt to distinguish between criminal misuse of firearms and safe and proficient defensive uses.

So drug testing for welfare recipients, or as a condition of employment is unConstitutional and a violation of rights, but perfectly OK if you want to purchase a firearm?

Summing Up the Hoplophobes and Victim Disarmers in a Paragraph

Filed under: Media, Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:29 AM (05:29)

Today’s Albuquerque Journal, fresh from the driveway, has the following in the “Speak Up!” section of the Op-Ed page (A13)

BACKGROUND CHECKS can help reduce mass shootings if they are combined with other strong measures. Close the loopholes and make purchases that are now legal, illegal. MY

If that doesn’t sum up the hoplophobe and victim disarmer mindset, I don’t know what does.

This is why I am not fond of the phrase “law-abiding” when used by right-to-own-and-carry-weapons advocates in relation to gun owners. The openly-stated intent of the victim disarmers is to make it more difficult and more expensive to own any sort of firearm in a legal manner.

Y’all do realize that calling yourself a “law-abiding” gun owner while simultaneously sporting any “I WILL NOT COMPLY” graphics or signage is idiocy. For the very essence of “law-abiding” is compliance with every little asinine, ridiculous, burdensome edict put out by the Political Classholes?!

Ben Ray Lujan says William Barr MUST Resign

So according to New Mexico’s poster boy for public-sector nepotism, T.rump is committing the unforgivable sin of “directly overruling federal prosecutors.”

Ben Ray seems to have forgotten that those prosecutors take orders from the U.S. Attorneys.

Those U.S. Attorneys, in turn, take orders from the Attorney General, who takes his orders from . . . T.rump.

So Ben Ray not only doesn’t seem to understand this concept called chain of command, but he’s got it all backwards.

As for Roger Stone, I’ve heard from other sources that he’s an absolute cretin. Which seems to be the rule rather than the exception where the District of Criminals is concerned.

And there’s no shortage of corruption in Ben Ray’s camp — if Clintons aren’t the walking, talking embodiment of graft and office-selling, I’m not sure who is.

    If the sheriffs who are opposed to the red-flag victim disarmament bill need to resign for refusing to enforce it, then those public officials who sponsored it, pushed it through the Roundhouse, signed it, or otherwise supported in the first place should resign for their blatant and willful disregard and violation of Article II, Sections 6 and 18 of the State Constitution.

    What part of Article XX, Section 1 allows them to blow off parts of the State Constitution for which they don’t personally care?

    “Asked Tuesday about sheriffs’ resistance, Lujan Grisham said the elected law enforcement officials should resign if they’re not willing to enforce the state’s laws.”

    Lujan Grisham and the legislators that voted for this bill should resign for their blatant and willful disregard and violation of Article II, Sections 6 and 18 of the State Constitution.

    What part of Article XX, Section 1 allows them to blow off parts of the State Constitution for which they don’t personally care?

  4. Alamogordo Daily News / Las Cruces Sun-News: Re: New Mexico governor signs red-flag gun bill, tells sheriffs to ‘enforce it or resign’

    “SANTA FE – New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a red-flag gun bill Tuesday that will allow state district courts to order the temporary surrender of firearms, and she urged sheriffs to resign if they still refuse to enforce it.”

    Lujan Grisham and the legislators that voted for this bill should resign for their blatant and willful disregard and violation of Article II, Sections 6 and 18 of the State Constitution.

    What part of Article XX, Section 1 allows them to blow off parts of the State Constitution for which they don’t personally care?

    Is Chafee high on his own ego, as Mr Bill the Original Weldist seemed to be?

  2. Posted to Facebook

    “no Gary in the race”

    At this point, Chafee is close enough for my taste on the “L”P side of things.

    For what it’s worth, Mr Bill the Original Weldist keeps sending me fundraising emails, with the line that “our message is resonating.”

    Does 1.3 % in the Iowa caucuses seriously count as “resonating” ? How about that for every vote Mr. Bill got in the New Hampshire primary, Trump got six votes?

    “Gun violence” is a perjorative phrase designed to instill a fear of firearms in the uninformed.

    Get back to us when you’re equally concerned about “knife violence” (stabbings and slashings), “car violence” (hit and run attacks), “axe violence,” “blunt-object violence” and “bare-handed violence” (assault and battery).
