That’s right, ’tis the season to drive liberals completely crazy.
It’s looking like this Black Friday will set a record for background checks for gun purchases. The FBI is reporting that they processed three background checks per second this year. That means about 145,000 lucky loved ones – who, according to the FBI have been nice for more than just this last year – are going to be getting a new gun for Christmas.
Needless to say Michael Bloomberg and his fuzzy-headed ninnies are apoplectic. They’re selling t-shirts and while they haven’t published the numbers, we’d bet they didn’t sell 145,000 of them. Funny because a new gun is tad more expensive than a stupid t-shirt.
Needless to say Bloomberg & The Ninnies are on the wrong side of this issue, this is from 2012.
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his infamous “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” have struck again—this time with a conference call where he proclaimed the recent presidential elections “proved” the NRA is dying and the American people want more gun control.
Let’s keep in mind that this conference call was held on November 30, 2012 and two weeks later the shooting in Newtown, CT happened. This should have been the momentum that The Ninnies needed to drop by the Curmudgeon household for a donation. It didn’t work out that way, just a year later on December 13, 2013,
President Obama has pushed hard for gun control this year and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent millions of dollars on ads, but the administration’s promise to coordinate “a November lobbying effort and plan events to commemorate the first anniversary of the Newtown, Connecticut” has gotten little traction.
A recent CNN poll finds the highest level of opposition to any new gun control measures since CNN started asking about it in 1989. Rising from only 28 percent opposed to new gun control measures then to 50 percent today.
The attempts to ban “assault weapons” are dead and gone, even the New York Times has given up on that one. New York State did pass an assault weapons ban and quickly discovered they couldn’t stop the sales of AR15 type rifles because gun manufacturers simply designed around the cosmetic limitations of the law.
Here’s an AR15 that is banned in New York State.
Here’s one that’s legal in New York State.
Same basic weapon minus some scary cosmetics. Perfectly legal in New York State.
Connecticut passed a very onerous registration law and for the most part, law abiding CT gun owners ignored it with no consequence.
Now, as Connecticut’s The Courant estimates, as many as 100,000 gun owners with 350,000 unregistered weapons have yet to come forward, making state officials uneasy. Furthermore, estimates concerning banned magazines holding more than ten rounds — which have no serial numbers and are impossible to track unless registered — show that only 36,932 have been entered into the state’s databases, while over two million remain on the market.
“I honestly thought from my own standpoint that the vast majority would register. If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem,” Republican state Sen. Tony Guglielmo, ranking senator on the legislature’s public safety committee, told The Courant.
This is where we note, don’t get cocky.
Michael Bloomberg has put up something on the order of $300 million of his own money to make sure you can’t buy or own a gun. Don’t let their rhetoric about “safe, common sense regulations,” that’s the camel’s nose under the tent. They recognize, or they’re dumber than we think they are, that gun control measures would not have stopped Newtown or any other shooting in the US. Expanding background checks won’t do anything either. They want Australia or UK type reform, it’s illegal to own a gun. Period. Confiscate all guns and grind them up.
In the spirit of the season, we sent the following message to Bloomberg’s Ninnies at the Contact Us button on their website: This year black Friday gun background checks set a record at about 145,000 checks, three per second. We’re excited that a lot of people will enjoy ownership of a new gun this Christmas and will sleep well knowing that they can protect their families.
Merry Christmas Mayor Bloomberg! It’s your money, spend it all on trying to get Mrs. Crumudgeon’s Valentine’s Day present from last year, a very nice Taurus 32 semi-auto with a laser sight. Oh, and that red dot on your chest? Consider it a sign of the season, hers is red, my Glock 40 cal is green.
Nice holiday touch doncha think?
