When Democrats talks about a living breathing constitution, they are really talking about rewriting the Constitution to fit their fashionable PC ideology—whatever that might be on in any particular voting cycle.
And when Democrats talk about gun control, they are really talking about the banning and confiscation of all weapons purchased by law-abiding citizens. Like totalitarians everywhere, Democrats want to centralize power and weapons in the hands of the state. The fact that they are also centralizing power in the murderous paws of millions of various criminal enterprises is, to liberals, a big yawn. In fact, the criminals reliably vote the Democrat ticket because they know who best represents their interests. So, in a very real sense, the Democrats are pandering to their base.
Seraphic Secret also finds is fascinating that the very people who wail and gnash their teeth about ”gun violence” are the very people who oppose capital punishment for the very barbarians who gleefully slaughter innocent citizens with illegaly obtained weapons.
But then the very people who claim to want to protect our children are the same creatures who advocate loudly and relentlessly for the murder of children in the womb, even in the third trimester.
But then a consistent morality has never been the hallmark of postmodern liberal-progressivess.
Last Friday night Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) told Melissa Harris-Perry that the violence in his Chicago district should cause lawmakers to take action not only against semi-automatic weapons, but also handguns. Gutiérrez correctly noted that nearly 97 percent of Chicago gun murders in 2011 were carried out with handguns. What he didn’t think worth mentioning is that the murders are overwhelmingly black on black slaughter, carried out by gangs who traffic in, surprise, illegal drugs! The fact that heroin, cocaine and meth are illegal should make these substances—according to liberal-think—extinct. But that has hardly happened, has it?
Said Gutiérrez: “It’s clear that we need to look at handguns also.”
Well, at least he’s telling the truth. Which is the least you can expect from a democrat who is somewhat to the left of Che Guevara.
