    Rich people don’t pay taxes, anyway.

    YOU pay their taxes every time you buy one of their products or use one of their services.

    Raise taxes on Bill Gates, watch the price of Microsoft go up. (I’ve been using Linux for about five years now.)

    Raise taxes on Tim Cook, watch the price of the new iPhone and iPad go up.

    Taxes are a cost of doing business, just like payroll, office supplies, and utilities.

    Antifa needing protection from the cops that they profess to hate so much while visiting the annual Sturgis rally wasn’t enough, apparently.

[Letter to ABQ City Council] Please OPPOSE O-19-82 AND O-19-83

Filed under: Politics, Resistance, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:28 AM (00:28)

From: Mike Blessing
To: Councilor Lan Sena <lansena@cabq.gov>, Councilor Isaac Benton <ibenton@cabq.gov>, Councilor Klarissa Peña <kpena@cabq.gov>, Councilor Brook Bassan <bbassan@cabq.gov>, Councilor Cynthia Borrego <cynthiaborrego@cabq.gov>, Councilor Pat Davis <patdavis@cabq.gov>, Councilor Diane Gibson <dgibson@cabq.gov>, Councilor Trudy Jones <trudyjones@cabq.gov>, Councilor Don Harris <dharris@cabq.gov>

Date: September 21, 2020, 11:42 AM MST
Subject: Please OPPOSE O-19-82 AND O-19-83

Dear Councilors:

I am writing to you in order to speak up against two pieces of proposed legislation scheduled to come before the Council today, O-19-82 and O-19-83.

Ordinance O-19-82 will attempt to mandate secure storage of firearms.

Ordinance O-19-83 seeks to create a city ordinance out of Keller’s questionable order banning firearms on city owned or leased properties.

Both ordinances would violate the Constitution of the State of New Mexico, Article II, Section 6, which states:

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.

A recent attempt to pass a non-binding resolution to repeal this seciton of the state Constitution failed in the council 5-4.

Let’s make no mistake about it these proposed ordinances are in no way, shape or form about “gun safety” or “gun control”.

True gun safety and gun control stem from the four safety rules, the seven fundamentals of marksmanship, and knowing what is and is not a legitimate target.

If the people backing “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly care about firearms safety, then why aren’t they chipping in towards firearms safety training, as does the group they list as their archnemesis, the National Rifle Association?

If Michael Bloomberg and the other multi-millionaires behind “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly cared about gun safety, they would put their millions behind the construction of MORE shooting ranges, and the maintenance of existing ones. They would chip in for the creation of DVDs and online video shows that provide instruction on the safe and proficient handling of firearms.

Instead, all they do is lobby and agitate for more restrictive laws upon the pre-existing civil, Constitutional, human individual right to own and carry weapons, as supposed to be guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico.

Rather, the legislation in question (O-19-82 and O-19-83) is more properly called “victim disarmament,” in that the people most likely to be affected by it are the people who have the most reason to own and carry firearms for self-defense — the little old lady or the paraplegic who lives alone in a bad neighborhood, the five-foot-nothing 100-pound woman being stalked by a six-foot 200-pound deranged ex-boyfriend.

The bad people (the criminals, terrorists, and violence-inclined mental defectives) whom the proponents of this legislation say will be disarmed by it most likely will not be affected in the least. If they want access to a firearm, they will have it, by hook or by crook.

You see, the bad guys have found this massive loophole in the existing restrictions on private civilians’ rights to own and carry weapons called “breaking the law.”

There are already 20,000 to 25,000 existing restrictions upon the pre-existing individual, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons, which are supposed to be guaranteed against State infringement by the Second Amendment and Article 2, Section 6 of the State Constitution. None of these anti-liberty statutes has stopped a bad guy from obtaining a firearm when they want it.

Laws already exist that prohibit felons, domestic abusers, foreign terrorists, incurable drug abusers and alcoholics, and mental defectives from obtaining, owning or carrying firearms.

Laws already exist that prohibit the use of firearms (and other objects) to harm other people (murder, assault with a deadly weapon, etc.).

I think it’s safe to say that all these laws have done is keep honest people honest, the same way locks on doors do.

Those who propose further infringements upon individual liberty aren’t truly looking to improve the human condition at all, but seeking more power over others for whatever reasons. No good will come from these infringements — no good has ever come from these sorts of laws, and no good ever will.

As for the phrase “gun violence” —

Why are not criminal stabbings or slashings with knives ever referred to as “knife violence” ?

Why are hit and run murders done with cars or trucks never called “automotive violence” ?

Why are attacks using baseball bats, pry bars, hammers and pieces of steel rebar never referred to as “blunt object violence” ?

Look, no one is trying to take your government away. We just want to have an honest, open, adult conversation about common-sense restrictions on government. If we can save just one child from government violence, it will be worth it.

Subject: Re: Please OPPOSE O-19-82 AND O-19-83

Good morning,

I agree with your statements. I do not believe we should impose more regulations especially at a municipal level and when they appear to work in opposition of the United States Constitution while possibly putting more innocent people at risk. I do not plan on supporting these Ordinances.

Thank you for reaching out.
