These hypocrites say they’re looking out for us
letter to the editor from my local paper.
i found it contained some interesting info...
In a recent poll conducted by the National Association of Chiefs of Police indicated that almost 64 percent of police commanders and sheriffs favor a law allowing private citizens to carry concealed firearms for protection.
Almost 73 percent said that citizens should not be restricted from purchasing more than one weapon, and 96 percent say they believe criminals obtain firearms from illegal sources.
Unfortunately most states — especially those called Blue States due to their liberal leanings — continue to prohibit private citizens from carrying concealed handguns.
At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.), who are carrying concealed weapons, according to WABC Radio’s Mark Levin. Levin, a recognized constitutional expert, heads the Landmark Legal Foundation.
The LLF’s goal is to protect American’s from unreasonable and illegal government intrusions and violations of the U.S. Constitution, including the Second Amendment.
The mainstream news media have been aware that several anti-gun proponents are carrying concealed firearms but have failed to expose this hypocrisy.
This writer’s efforts to discover how many other anti-gunners are also packing heat — a right they wish to deny other citizens — met with limited results.
Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office — the investigative arm of the U.S. Congress — slammed Schumer’s use of police resources for personal protection.
It’s clear that Schumer believes he’s special. He wishes to ban private citizens’ ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much — he’s able to protect himself. And then we have Senator Diane Feinstein on the Left Coast who possesses something more rare than a conservative Republican in San Francisco — an unrestricted concealed weapons permit.
Apparently without shame, she participated in a citywide gun turn-in program that was intended to create some kind of statue from the donated guns that were to be melted down.
One of her police body guards let it slip that she contributed a cheap model for the meltdown, while retaining her .357 magnum revolver for her own personal self-defense.
Hypocrisy is not limited to politicians when it comes to the Second Amendment. For Example, well-known Washington-based columnist, Carl Rowan, often wrote about the ills of firearms ownership.
Until, that is, he shot and wounded a teenager who trespassed on his property. The white teenaged boy claimed he wanted to try Rowan’s swimming pool.
Rowan, an African-American, retaliated with deadly force using a firearm. That’s when the news came out that Carl Rowan, gun-control advocate, actually possessed a license to own firearms.
Another example is the loudmouth entertainer, Rosie O’Donnell, who once ran roughshod over conservative actor Tom Selleck because of his stance supporting the Second Amendment.
Although Ms. O’Donnell doesn’t carry a gun, she has three armed bodyguards who protect her, her wife and her children, something the vast majority of hardworking Americans could never afford.
Isn’t it comforting to know all these liberals are looking out for us?
