Hollywood Gun Ban Hypocrites

Forget that last Friday a mother in Loganville, Georgia hid her two 9-year-old twins in a crawl space and herself in a closet when an intruder, Paul Ali Slater, forced his way into her home.  When he opened the closet door during his home invasion, the woman shot six rounds into his face and neck with a .38 revolver, hitting him five times.  Never mind that.

No.  We need to focus on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.  Furthermore, we need to focus on every rare gun shooting tragedy from Columbine to the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting that occurs in this country of over 315 million people where approximately 310 million guns exist.

That’s what Piers Morgan and the rest of specious Hollywood does.  Hollywood hypocrites, those same actors that make millions GLORIFYING GUN VIOLENCE in movies, now call for legislation to curb guns… to take guns away from law abiding citizens.

It would be like seeing Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart pose in anti-smoking Public Service Announcements shortly after filming To Have Or Have Not.  Anybody got a match?

Contributing to the Hollywood hypocrisy is Piers Morgan, a British citizen, who had the gall to use his platform on CNN — a workplace secured by armed guards — to rant about American gun ownership and link it to violence.  In fact, he calls pro-gun advocate, Larry Pratt, an “unbelievably stupid man” in response to the notion that Piers believes it is better for people to be disarmed and a victim of crime than to be able to defend themselves.  A logical truth anti-gun radicals cannot seem to reconcile.

Furthermore, Piers Morgan called for the banning of guns in America.  The last time the British did that, it led to the American Revolution anchored by the Second Amendment.  This time, it has led to a petition to deport Piers Morgan back to England.

Usually, I find petitions to be a waste of time.  But this particular petition actually has a purpose.  According to the White House, Americans can “petition the Administration to address a problem, support or oppose a proposal, or otherwise change or continue federal government policy or actions… if a petition meets the signature goal within the designated period, the White House will respond to that petition in a timely fashion… To cross the second threshold and require a response, a petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days.“  Currently, the Piers Morgan petition has over 104,000 signatures in approximately two weeks.

So, we wait for Obama’s response.  He’s already made a response in favor of gun control that includes this line, “The President called on Congress to pass important legislation “banning the sale of military-style assault weapons,” “banning the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips,” and “requiring background checks before all gun purchases, so that criminals can’t take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won’t take the responsibility of doing a background check at all.”

How will the Obama administration respond to the Piers Morgan petition to deport him after his gun banning comments?  Will the Obama White House state the positives guns bring to society and stand up for the Second Amendment?  Or, will the Obama White House go soft on Piers, giving credibility to an outright federal gun ban?  If so, I wonder how that mother who saved her own life and the lives of her twins in Loganville, Georgia would feel about such a response?

    THE WHITE HOUSE STATEMENT (01/09/13):

    Americans may disagree on matters of public policy and express those disagreements vigorously, but no one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the Second Amendment—or any other matter of public concern. We recognize that the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, sparked an intense, and at times emotional, national conversation about the steps we can take as a country to reduce gun violence. In fact, your petition is one of many on the issue, and President Obama personally responded by sharing his views on this important issue.”

    A friend of mine joined the boycott against CNN and I sent a note reminding him, if you see Piers Morgan and CNN ratings for the past year; the public have been boycotting Piers and CNN.

    Watch the Left hand!!!
    Let’s call This administrations tactics for what they really are: Rope-A-Dope.
    See, three main objectives of this administration are:
    1) tax and spend
    2) collapse “Rule of Law” and its corollary US Constitution (just like Woodrow Wilson and FDR)
    3) decimate capitalism with a “command-top-down” economy(never tried in the USA before).

    1) Tax and spend already readily visible with the Fiscal Cliff charade.

    2) Collapse “Rule of Law!” a bit more complex to understand but here goes. There are two linch-pins the Progressive New Left activists in the USA are vehmently focused on:
    1)2nd Amendment and
    2)” Our Creator.”
    Let’s take the second first…”Our Creator.” See, our Founding Fathers were eternally grateful for the bounty bestowed upon them with having defeated then Worlds most massive military and armada yet gracing the face of this earth. They were eternally grateful for these turn of events and thanked, religiously, their benefactor…”Our Creator.” This has been USA’s founding and linch-pin for everything America…since 1776. Enter the 1900′s ACLU, Communists, Samuel Gompers, et al.Everything, and everyone hell-bent on decimating this linch-pin (even unbridled “crony-capitalism”). Hell, there were even gatherings of Nazi’s in Madison Square Garden (1930′s). Well, today this Progressive New Left activist mantra has been couched in “civil rights,” LGBT and a Rewritten New Oxford Bible (excising “God”).
    Now, the number one item on the Progressive New Left activist list…the 2nd Amendment. See, this is the “creme-de-la-creme” for this bunch of ne’er-do-well’s.” Their “putch” to once and for all destroy USA’s Constitution rides on their decimating the second amendment, see, if they succeed in this, the Constitution fails. This is their “last hurrah” (and Obama’s, too). He wants the Constitution “finished” once and for all. The “nail-in-the-coffin” for him is: a)the 2nd Amendment AND b)unhinging “our Creator” from We The People. Period.

    3) Decimate capitalism with a “command-top-down” economy. Already well underway with Obamacare (1/6th of Americas economy in the hands of government) daily encroachment of government into every nook-and-cranny of American life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Fully 1/3 of Americans on some form of government assistance, 56% of America’s productive capacity is now overseas and increasing rapidly, largest single increase in debt load on individual families in the history of the USA, and a permanent “lo-income class” (and illegal aliens) utterly dependent on every government program in existance, subsidy and yet to be created.
    Remember: Rope-A-Dope. Pray. Amen.

    Update on “Obama’s Gun Control”
    5 Facts against “Gun Control”
    Nick Gillespie & Amanda Winkler | January 10, 2013 (reason.com)
    1. Violent crime – including violent crime using guns – has dropped massively over the past 20 years.
    The violent crime rate – which includes murder, rape, and beatings – is half of what it was in the early 1990s. And the violent crime rate involving the use of weapons has also declined at a similar pace.
    2. Mass shootings have not increased in recent years.
    Despite terrifying events like Sandy Hook or last summer’s theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, mass shootings are not becoming more frequent. “There is no pattern, there is no increase,” says criminologist James Allen Fox of Northeastern University, who studies the issue. Other data shows that mass killings peaked in 1929.
    3. Schools are getting safer.
    Across the board, schools are less dangerous than they used be.Over the past 20 years, the rate of theft per 1,000 students dropped from 101 to 18. For violent crime, the victimization rate per 1,000 students dropped from 53 to 14.
    4. There Are More Guns in Circulation Than Ever Before.
    Over the past 20 years, virtually every state in the country has liberalized gunownership rules and many states have expanded concealed carry laws that allow more people to carry weapons in more places. There around 300 million guns in the United States and at least one gun in about 45 percent of all households. Yet the rate of gun-related crime continues to drop.
    5. “Assault Weapons Bans” Are Generally Ineffective.
    While many people are calling for reinstating the federal ban on assault weapons – an arbitrary category of guns that has no clear definition – research shows it would have no effect on crime and violence. “Should it be renewed,” concludes a definitive study, “the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”
    The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is as horrifing a crime as can be imagined. It rips at the country’s heart and the call to action is strong and righteous. But as Joe Biden and his panel of experts consider changes to gun laws and school-safety policies, they need to lead with their heads and not just their hearts.
    Over the past dozen years, too many policies – the Patriot Act, the war in Iraq, the TARP bailouts – have been ruled by emotion and ideology.
    Passing sweeping new restrictions on Second Amendment rights won’t heal the pain and loss we all feel but just may create many more problems in our future.
    Commentary: 2nd amendment is the “linch-pin” Progressive New Left Activists see as the dismantling of USA’s Constitution. Coupled with this re-newed effort is LGBT’s incessant drive to “unlink” Our Creator from everything Judeo-Christian in Americas and Americans heritage. Their New Oxford Bible professes these precepts. Pray. Amen. Vigilance.
