Democrats: Gun Control still on the table at the democrat national convention

Once again, we find the democrats trying to impose their failed far-left socialistic and liberal values on a weary and economically depressed nation.

The highlight of the convention will be that rock star known as Barack Obama, an empty suit who will say or do anything to get elected – and those who simply want to return to power so they can continue to plunder the public treasury to turn this great nation into a European socialist enclave that endlessly discusses the merits of  wine and cheese while democracy and liberty fall by the wayside.

Gun control is still a hot topic …

In spite of the recent Supreme Court ruling on the Second Amendment, we see the democrats continuing to present their old, failed policies which can’t possibly work. Especially when democrat officials do not believe in punishing criminals for their actions – and believe that everybody should be rehabilitated and given a second change.

The draft platform document …

( has uncovered a draft copy of the democrat national platform for the upcoming 2008 democrat convention …

“The Draft 2008 Democratic National Platform includes the following single paragraph on firearms:
We recognize that the right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ continued Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation, but we know that what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne. We can work together to enact and enforce common-sense laws and improvements, like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system and reinstating the assault weapons ban, so that guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists or criminals. Acting responsibly and with respect for differing views on this issue, we can both protect the constitutional right to bear arms and keep our communities and our children safe.”

Parsing the democrat words …

The use of the word “reasonable

Reasonable, according to those who are in power and make the laws has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are not reasonable and do not work.

The use of the words “work together

The democrats, especially in this Congress, have shown very little evidence of bi-partisanship unless they need Republican votes to pass a measure. These democrat legislators are arrogant and believe it is their mission to save the world using their distorted vision of what the world should be.

The use of the words “common-sense laws and improvements

Very few democrat members of Congress seem to demonstrate “common-sense” preferring any expedient way of passing their far-left liberal socialist agenda which is about making you conform to their vision of the world --  sometimes in such a manner that requires you to suspend belief in real world actions and economics. Improvements is their Orwellian way of trying to convince you that up is down and black is white. With so many “improved” gun rules and regulations now on the books, you think that criminals and other evil-doers would be completely disarmed. Unfortunately, the democrats continue to deny and ignore the fact that gun control does not work and that you cannot keep criminals and crazy people from acting out by simply imposing laws.

Close the gun show loophole

There is no “loophole.” There are people who try to sell guns outside of the system and almost in equal numbers to the number of undercover agents who are trying to catch them. If they don’t sell their wares outside of gun shows, they simply will do business wherever shooters congregate. This is an enforcement issue, not a legislative issue.

Improving our background check system

Keeping a massive database of gun owners is simply a prelude to confiscation and the imposition of penalties should any of the so-called registered weapons be designated to be undesirable by future legislation. The real database should be the names of felons and those judged mentally incapable of possessing a weapon.

Reinstating the assault weapons ban so that guns do not fall in the hands of terrorists or criminals

Democrats who believe what a weapon looks like should be confused with its functionality only goes to prove that they are living in an alternate universe. Banning the use of a pistol grip on produces an alternative method of holding the weapon. Banning the use of removable clips only produces fixed clips which need to be removed with a “tool” – any pointed object such as a ballpoint pen can serve as the tool. Sheer idiocy.

A prime example of this democrat lunacy is trying to ban a 50-caliber Barrett rifle. It is big, heavy and produces such prodigious recoil and muzzle blast that no gang banger in their right mind would even consider using this expensive weapon for a drive-by, even if it would fit in the car.

Both protect the constitutional right to bear arms and keep our community safe.

New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago has some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation. Did they work? NO. Because criminals and crazy people kill people, using whatever implement is handy to do the job. If you removed every gun in existence, people would use knives and clubs. And the old canard about how many people can be killed in a short period of time: there are cars and poison and … 

Stupid is as stupid does … 

The fundamental law overlooked by democrat legislators is so simple as to defy common-sense and logic: if people want to kill – they will find the means, any place or at  any time.

Bottom line:

The Supreme court held that gun bans are unconstitutional … get over trying to legislate this world into your socialist perfect world for perfect people.

A visual aid for the terminally stupid democrat …


Once again, we are faced with the far-left liberal elite who says “do as I say, not as I do.” People who are surrounded by armed guards, sophisticated alarm systems and live in guard-gated or protected areas. Why they persist in denying the American public the means to protect themselves against the predators that these liberal politicians release on the streets or fail to prosecute is unfathomable.

What can YOU do?

Demand that the democrats realize that the American public is Constitutionally-guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms.

Demand that the democrats recognize that disarming the American public would convey a natural advantage to criminals. Of course, that may be one of the key reasons that they propose gun control – they want to make everybody dependent on their  democrat government for protection.

Demand that criminals be punished, not coddled. Ignoring those who continue to re-offend is not only stupid, it is deadly.

And demand the democrats understand the premise that gun control is not crime control. We need crime control! No plea bargains for those who use weapons. No paroles for those who use weapons. No early release for those who use weapons. Like I said: crime control, not gun control.

Even if you do not shoot or have never handled a weapon, keep an open mind. There is nothing on the face of this Earth that will keep a determined assailant from attacking his victim.

If you are afraid of guns, take a gun safety course. I guarantee your attitude will change. Call the NRA to find a suitable course near you. You will find hunters and shooters extremely friendly and eager to help you safely enjoy the support. No one will laugh or make fun of you for your lack of knowledge.

Common sense tells you to protect yourself, your family, your community and your country. There is no substitute for self-defense and the love of freedom and liberty.

Most far-left liberal democrats believe in the rights of the “collective” over the rights of the “individual.” How very socialistic of them.
