Man who shot up NYPD Bronx station just got out of jail for machine gun charge

According to the NY Post, this perp just got out of jail for a machine gun charge, has a homicide on his record, arrest for gun possession, and ambushed two cops the previous night.

Yet Gov. Cuomo claims New York has the “toughest gun control laws in the US.”

Maybe he means toughest for law-abiding citizens…

Guess how long some have to wait for a gun ID card in Illinois

According to MyFoxChicago, two gun rights groups are suing the Illinois State Police for not promptly renewing firearm owners’ identification cards.

The groups suing are the Illinois State Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation. They filed on behalf of two men who have been waiting for their identification cards and concealed carry licenses since 2017.

From their report:

“The groups said the state police transferred nearly $30 million from funds used for the administration of the cards, background checks and concealed carry licenses into other accounts, which has caused the application and appeals process to slow and come to a halt.

Attorney David Sigale said he tried working with the police to move along the process, but he was left with no other option but to sue. “We’re just going to sit on your license application, your FOID appeal, your renewal, we’re just going to sit on it and passively deny people’s rights, and that’s what’s happening here,” Sigale said.

But Illinois State Police said in a statement that it does not have the authority to sweep funds. “In 2015 and 2018, $13.2 million was swept from the Firearms Service Fund into the general fund during the budget crisis,” ISP said. “Under the current fiscal year, funds have not been swept, allowing the Firearms Services Bureau to start filling 17 analyst vacancies, procure technology to offer better customer service and to begin building a new Appeals Bureau.”

The agency also has no deadline to respond to appeals and has been known to take months or years to issue a decision, according to the documents.

In a statement, Illinois State Police spokeswoman Beth Hundsdorfer said that last year, 90 percent of applicants saw their paperwork processed in less than 30 days. She said it took an average of 65 days to renew a FOID card in 2019.

The kicker? The men said they usually carry a handgun for self-defense but do not anymore because they fear prosecution for possessing a firearm without a license.

Meanwhile, criminals aren’t waiting for their ID cards: “Convicted felon charged in shooting of Chicago firefighter in Albany Park.”

Virginia Senate blocks Demonrat Gov. Northam’s gun-control bill

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

On Monday, February 3, two Democrats in the State Judiciary Committee– state Sens. Creigh Deeds and Chap Petersen — joined Republicans to defeat a gun control bill proposed by Demonrat governor Northam.

Louis Casiano reports for Fox News that Northam’s bill would make it a felony to “recklessly leave a loaded, unsecured firearm” in a way that endangers a minor.

Another bill to ban so-called assault weapons like AR-15 rifles is also likely to be rejected.

The bill that’s been rejected by the State Judiciary Committee is one of eight that Northam has proposed for adoption, including bills limiting handgun purchases to once a month; universal background checks on gun purchases; and a red flag bill allowing authorities to temporarily take guns away from anyone deemed to be “dangerous” to themselves or others.

Some of Northam’s gun control bills have passed in the state’s Democrat-controlled General Assembly, which both chambers will hash out their differences in the coming weeks.

One of 22,000 patriots at the 2nd Amendment rally in Richmond, VA, January 20, 2020.

Gun-control hypocrite Michael Bloomberg is protected by 17 armed bodyguards

This comes as no surprise to any of us, but it still should be said.

Michael Bloomberg, 77, billionaire, former NYC mayor (2002-2013) and currently a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, is strongly pro-gun control, so much so that he founded the non-profit Everytown for Gun Safety to advocate and push for gun control, and match the National Rifle Association (NRA) in political influence.

But like other pro-gun control elites, Bloomberg enjoys the protection of armed personal security guards. He just doesn’t want you to have the same protection.

AWR Hawkins reports for Breitbart, Feb. 3, 2020, that Michael Bloomberg’s use of armed guards has been noted through the years, including:

(1) On November 29, 2011, during the Obama administration, then-mayor Bloomberg crowed in a speech at MIT that “I have my own army in the NYPD, which is the seventh largest army in the world. I have my own state department, to Foggy Bottom’s annoyance. We have the UN in New York, so we have entree into the diplomatic world that Washington does not have. I don’t listen to Washington very much, which is something they’re not thrilled about.” (New York Post)

(2) In November 2013, the New York Post reported that law enforcement sources told the NYP that “Mayor Bloomberg is taking his most trusted NYPD bodyguards with him to the private sector next year — to ensure they don’t spill any of his secrets” and “keep their mouths shut.” Bloomberg’s new 17-member security team would include a current lieutenant and several detectives, all with more than 20 years on the force. The cops would all hit the jackpot with “six-figure salaries” as well as cushy NYPD pensions from their public salaries of at least $120,000 each.

(3) In August 2017, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson also pointed out Bloomberg’ hypocrisy. Carlson said (4:42 mark in the video below):

“But I wonder if guns are so bad, and people often say this but I’ve never got a real answer, why does Mike Bloomberg have armed bodyguards? I don’t get it. Like if I run a bodega [a small grocery store] in the Bronx, I don’t get to carry a gun. I’ve been in a lot of danger, but Mike Bloomberg doesn’t think I should have a gun, I can’t be trusted, and yet he runs around ’cause he’s a billionaire with all these guys with automatic weapons. Why is that fair for him but not for the bodega guy?”

Not content with destroying the 2A, Virginia now going after the First Amendment

Not content with working hard to disarm law-abiding citizens, Virginia is now turning their attention to silencing their citizens.

On January 16, Virginia House Delegate member Jeffrey Bourne (demorat) presented HB 1627 entitled, “Threats and harassment of certain officials and property.”

The bill is to amend other codes relating to threats and harassment of certain officials and property. Obviously threatening a government official should be a no-no. BUT, get a look at THIS text:

“§ 18.2-152.7:1. Harassment by computer; penalty: If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he shall be is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. A violation of this section may be prosecuted in the jurisdiction in which the communication was made or received or in the City of Richmond if the person subjected to the act is one of the following officials or employees of the Commonwealth: the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”

Read the whole bill here.

Who gets to define these terms thrown in the bill: obscene, vulgar, profane or indecent?

And I love the fact that demorats are going to be able to determine what is an “immoral act.”

This is RICH coming from the party that promotes homosexuality, anal sex, self mutilation under the guise of transgenderism, child drag queens and fisting, among other degenerate acts.

The Virginia General Assembly didn’t care what the 22,000 gun rights rally attendees had to say about their Second Amendment rights. Yet apparently they are very concerned with what you have to say about them striping those rights.

Dangerous times in Virginia, very dangerous times.

Protester says ban assault weapons, including “any gun that isn’t a pistol”

A reminder from a couple years ago of the major STUPIDITY coming from those who know NOTHING about firearms.

Skip ahead to the 1:36 mark to hear one protestor’s brilliant solution.

I can’t even with these people…

After Seattle mass shooting carried out by known career-convicts, business owner says, “I don’t know what happened to our beautiful city”

There was a mass shooting in downtown Seattle on Wednesday where one was killed and seven injured. The perps are 24-year-old KNOWN gang members with EXTENSIVE criminal records between the two of them: 66 arrests and 34 convictions, including four felonies. Yet for some reason the perps weren’t in jail.

How did the demorat-run leadership in King County respond? By calling for more gun control laws.

MyNorthwest.com has a story about one restaurant owner nearby the shooting who is complaining about the loss of business he faces because of this incident (he had 68 canceled reservations). He states, ““For a small business like me, that means the entire payroll for the week. It was so devastating.”

Here’s the kicker: “I don’t know what happened to our beautiful city. We used to have this amazing Westlake Center; downtown was a treat. You would bring your family, ‘Let’s go downtown to shop and dine.’ And it’s gone. It doesn’t exist anymore.”

I’ll tell you how it happened: Seattle/King County has been run by demorats for decades.

With the easy access to today’s news and politics via your handheld device, there is really no reason for one to not understand what is going on in your own community. The problem lies in the inability of progressives to understand how their failed policies have destroyed that once vibrant city.

Here’s a refresher course for this Seattle restaurant owner and anyone with a true desire to understand how liberalism ruins the lives of law-abiding, taxpaying citizens:

King County judge on why repeat offenders get no punishment: “We’re just talking about property crime
Seattle repeat offender attacks man outside courthouse; was just released from jail earlier this month
Violent repeat offender in Seattle assaults toddler with coffee, two days after his jail release
Insanity in Seattle: Homeless man attempts to kidnap child. Guess how many previous arrests/convictions he has
How many convictions does it take for Seattle City Attorney to place a homeless criminal in jail after his latest assault?
Sanctuary King County, WA: Convicted rapist and illegal alien freed after 9 months returns to attack his disabled victim second time
Sanctuary King County: Man murdered in his sleep by illegal alien with previous felony

I could go on and on with the stories we’ve done on this blog about the inept criminal justice system in Seattle/King County.

It really is no mystery as to why Seattle has become a failed city – along with San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Chicago, Portland, etc. Gee, I wonder what they all have in common?

What is a mystery is why liberals keep electing progressive “leaders.”

Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee speaks, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash. Inslee was urging the passage of bills enforcing safe gun storage and enhanced background checks when buying or selling assault weapons. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) ORG XMIT: WATW110

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Read the whole story here.

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

Why a Red Flag Law is dangerous: democrat language and rhetoric

On Monday gun rights activists gathered in Richmond, Virginia to make their case against the gun-control demorats in that state.

The rally was peaceful and not one fight broke out – very much the exact opposite of Antifa gatherings. Heck, attendees at the rally even cleaned up after themselves!

But that hasn’t stopped the media and demorat gun grabbers from portraying the attendees as dangerous, racists white nationalists. See the following examples:

Rep. Don Beyer (demorat): “Annual gun lobby day protest in Richmond drew large numbers of white nationalists, militias, and racist conspiracy theorists this year. Neo-Nazis tried to use this rally to launch violent attacks. Trump’s symbolism and memories of Charlottesville are vivid in many minds today.”

HuffPo: “The Colossal Gun Rally In Richmond Was Co-Opted By Extremists

Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam: “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”

Reported by Turning Point USA: “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says today’s Peaceful Pro-2A #VirginiaRally sent an “explicit and implicit message” of “don’t you dare enact your policies, if you do we will use these guns against you.”

Media Hogg: “How many of these people do you think would support the Black Panthers right to carry? Or armed resistance to the white militias that stole the North American continent? Answer: none because they only want guns to enforce white supremacy.”

David Rothschild (a Twitter blue-checked verified economist): “The White Men (and they are all White Men, because non-White Men would not be safe in this crowd) are explicitly TERRORIZING US to demonstrate to lawmakers they will cause more TERROR if they pass gun safety measures the voters wanted and voted them into office to pass.”

Another one of David’s tweets: “The FACT that there were a handful of minorities at the rally designed to terrorize the Virginia lawmakers AND no one got shot, does invalidate the stated goals of the rally to terrorize Virginia lawmakers. Nor does it make the movement inclusive.”

As you can see, the narrative is that there were very, very dangerous people and gun owners at this rally.

Why is their hyperbole so dangerous? Because of this: “Virginia Senate advances ‘red flag’ gun law, despite rally”

From the AP article:

“The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.”

I’d be curious to see the red flag law text that defines how a petitioner can deem someone is “dangerous” to others. Because based upon the inflammatory language demorats use, they will always deem us gun owners as a “danger.”
