    The would-be murderers are shaking in their boots

    The would-be murderers are shaking in their boots

    What is wrong with this sentence?

    From The Daily News editorial cheering the draconian gun control law passed in NY State with no public discussion, no public debate, no normal waiting period, no time for Senators to read it, no likelihood of actually reducing crime, but great likelihood of making criminals of otherwise law abiding citizens who run afoul of its unusual provisions and who are not David Gregory:

    No longer would would-be murderers be legally permitted to buy obscene amounts  of ammunition, enabling them to squeeze the trigger again, and again, and again,  in quick succession.

    Oooh, the would-be murderers are shaking in their boots.  They’ll either completely disregard the law and buy illegal weapons from the same people who sell all the other illegal stuff — because they are, after all, “would-be murderers” — or they’ll bring two guns with them, or multiple magazines.

    As to the “obscene amounts of ammunition,” they’ll buy a little at a time and stock up.  Never thought of that, did you Daily News.  You need to start thinking like a would-be murderer.

    All the honest, law-abiding citizens, well they’ll wait longer to get a permit or will just give up trying.

    The law-abiding citizens will be effectively disarmed.  The would-be murderers are laughing all the way to the nearest gun-free zone.

    Hmm, I wonder if they bothered to ask anyone in the UK or Australia about what happens after guns are banned. Spike in gun crime in NY in 3… 2… 1…

      I have the answers for Australia.

      Death by firearms 2010 .

      Suicide 170

      Homicide 30

      Open finding 31.

      This for a population of 22.5 million. There has been a steady increase in guns since the 1996 buy back/ amnesty but it is proportional to the increase in population.

      It is estimated there is a firearm in every eighth household . It is accepted for rural areas & les so for city.

      It is a completely different society with only indigenous ‘ blacks ‘ who are not at all like Afro –
      Americans.

      All policemen are arm unlike Britain.

    Arguing facts…
    When will everybody get past THIS fact: fascists don’t care about facts. They let the non fascists deal with facts, to keep them distracted.

    Examples:

    Mssrs. Speer, Himmler and Goering: were you men aware of the fact that most Jews were in fact very patriotic Germans?

    Albert Speer: Who cared? I wanted to be the official architect of Germany.

    Heinrich Himmler: Who cared? I wanted to be the second most powerful man in Germany.

    Herman Goering: Who cared? I wanted to eat and vacation like Michelle Obama.

    Mr. Sharpton, your reaction? —

    Al Sharpton: I’m wit Goering!

    All of this is just the usual liberal reaction….
    Fire, Ready, Aim.

    Did the New York state legislature just make it a crime to merely OWN a firearm?

    See page 22 of the posted bill, s2230:

    § 41-a. The penal law is amended by adding a new section 265.01-b to 5 read as follows:

    6 § 265.01-b Criminal possession of a firearm.

    7 A person is guilty of criminal possession of a firearm when he or she:
    8
    (1) possesses any firearm or; (2) lawfully possesses a firearm prior to
    9 the effective date of the chapter of the laws of two thousand thirteen
    10 which added this section subject to the registration requirements of
    11 subdivision sixteen-a of section 400.00 of this chapter and knowingly
    12 fails to register such firearm pursuant to such subdivision.
    13 Criminal possession of a firearm is a class E felony.

    Do we have any lawyers here?

    “We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them.

    One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt.

    Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

    – Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” – 1957
