" Joe Biden brought his confusing anti-gun rhetoric to Buffalo, Tuesday – a city still grieving the loss of 10 good souls who were cut down Saturday by a hell-bound madman.Even though most of the victims have yet to be buried, Biden didn’t hesitate to use the solemn occasion as an opportunity to advocate for more gun control, in this case another federal “assault weapon” ban.“There are certain things we can do,” Biden told the grieving crowd. “We can keep assault weapons off of our streets. We did it before and violence went down.”

Even the FBI has acknowledged that the Federal Assault Weapons Ban that Biden referenced, which was a part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, did little to deter or prevent crime.Besides, New York already has a stringent “assault weapon” ban, as well as every other anti-gun law Biden has ever called for. They’re codified into state law, yet none of them worked.The mass murderer was not stopped by New York’s SAFE Act, which bans AR-15s and similar weapons. The state’s ban on standard-capacity magazines didn’t stop him, nor did the New York’s mandatory background check requirement or its Red Flag gun-confiscation law.

New York State Police were called to the gunman’s high school last June because he threatened to commit a mass shooting during the school’s graduation ceremonies. He was involuntarily committed to a mental hospital for an evaluation,and was released after a day and a half. However, this did not trigger New York’s red-flag law, which should have stopped him from purchasing a firearm.

Rather than infringing upon the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens, Biden should focus on why yet another mass murderer was “known to law enforcement,” yet no action was taken before he began killing people."

Seemed like an accurate article. I wonder how much of the rest of the USA sees it that way.

In his manifesto, the murderer stated that one reason for choosing his target was that "NY has heavy gun laws so it would ease me if I knew that any legally armed civilian was limited to 10 round magazines or cucked firearms".

Infringement of the right to keep and bear arms gets people killed.

Oh yes, that is true. And, he apologized for it. Because the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, locked up an unprecedented amount of black citizens.

Leftists never get tired of standing on the graves, or in this case the still warm bodies, of innocent crime victims whose politics they didn't, and don't, know in order to push their own political narratives.

It's ugly and shameful, but of course Leftists promote ugliness and have no shame.

If that isn't one of the best arguments for Constitutional Carry and less restrictions on law abiding citizens, I don't know what is.

The last statistics I saw for this county said that 1 out of 6 eligible (old enough, not a felon, ect ) residents have a ccp. Gun crime here is nearly zero.
But, it depends on the mood the county judge is in any particular day, since he or she has the final say.
I sincerely hope the Supreme Court makes the right decision when they rule on our case this summer.

Recently, GA became the 25'th state to make Constitutional carry a lawful right. Who's next ? Write your legislators.

"...while the media and the Democratic Party (sorry for the repetition) are busy using 10 more black lives as fodder for their quest for unlimited power, there are other shooting sprees that happened this past week that practically no one is talking about."

True to form, (never let a crisis, even a manufactured one, go to waste), Leftists are again trying to use this latest tragedy to attempt to nullify the 2nd amendment.



"Under the law, the attorney general would have to approve or deny applications within 30 days, and notify state and local officials of every application. If approved, licenses would be made available at a "designated local office." Each individual license would be valid to buy one firearm, to be purchased within 30 days of issuance.

The licenses would expire five years after the issuance date.

The law would also allow the attorney general to deny or revoke the license of anyone he deems "poses a significant danger of bodily injury to self or others by possessing, purchasing, or receiving a firearm."

This one is nuts..
"Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- A trio of perennial Capitol Hill gun banners have introduced legislation that would require American citizens to obtain a federal license from the Department of Justice before they could buy or receive a firearm, with periodic mandatory re-licensing and training.

New Jersey Democrat Senators Cory [Sparticus] Booker and Bob Menendez, and Connecticut Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal are behind the 11-page measure, dubbed the “Federal Firearm Licensing Act.”

As noted by Politico, “The DOJ license would require both a written firearm safety test and hands-on training, a criminal background check and submission of fingerprints and proof of identity. The license would only be available to people over 21 years of age, essentially raising the age of gun ownership to 21.”

The bill would amend Chapter 44 of Title 18. Right upfront, the legislation states, “it shall be unlawful for any individual to purchase or receive a firearm unless the individual has a valid Federal firearm license.”
But there is more, and it is disturbing.

“The Attorney General shall issue or deny a license under this section not later than 30 days after the date on which the application for such license is received.

“Each license issued under this section shall be valid for the purchase of a single firearm, which shall be purchased not later than 30 days after the date on which the license is issued.”

In two paragraphs, the Booker-Blumenthal-Menendez bill reduces a constitutionally-protected fundamental right to the level of heavily-regulated government privilege. Proof of that is underscored by a remark from Booker in his press release, in which he compares the right to keep and bear arms to driving a car, which is not mentioned anywhere in the Bill of Rights.

“This bill moves us in the right direction and is based on a simple concept – if you need a license to drive a car, you should need one to buy and possess a gun,” Booker stated.

The anti-gun trio figures to capitalize on the tragic May 14th, 2022 shooting at a Tops supermarket in Buffalo, N.Y.

The New York Times is reporting that with the current 50-50 makeup of the Senate, restrictive gun control legislation doesn’t have much of a chance to advance, however. In the aftermath of the Buffalo shooting, “Democrats on Capitol Hill were publicly conceding that their paper-thin majority in the Senate meant there was little they would be able to do to prevent the next tragedy,” the NY Times acknowledged.

Quoting anti-gun Democrat Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois, the report said Durbin admitted, “We’re kind of stuck where we are, for the time being.”

Durbin, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, reportedly was “playing down the chance that even a modest bill to strengthen background checks for gun purchases could overcome a Republican blockade.”

But Durbin didn’t mention that the accused shooter in Buffalo had actually passed a background check when he bought the firearm allegedly used in the attack. Only after the purchase, according to authorities, was the weapon apparently modified, and the suspect acquired full-capacity magazines, which are already illegal in New York state.

Translation: Nothing Durbin mentioned would have prevented the Buffalo shooting. Durbin’s three anti-gun Democrat colleagues think their new bill will fix that. At least, that’s what they are asserting.
“The Federal Firearms Licensing Act would put in place a certification process that includes firearm safety training and a thorough criminal background and identity check requiring the licensee be 21 years of age,” Menendez said in Booker’s news release. “We have a moral obligation to prevent these senseless massacres in our schools, supermarkets, places of worship and shopping malls that are tearing communities and families apart. It is my hope that my Republican colleagues will once-and-for-all recognize the urgency of action and join us in passing this legislation before more lives are senselessly lost to gun violence.”

Elsewhere in Booker’s press release, his office reveals, “The federal firearm license must be renewed every five years at which point the applicant will have to go through a background check and undergo firearm safety training again. (Emphasis added) The bill contains a mechanism for the DOJ to revoke the license if the individual poses a danger to themselves or to others. It would require the Federal Bureau of Investigation to regularly conduct checks to ensure that individuals are in compliance with federal license requirements and keeps in place requirements that all people purchasing firearms from a federal firearms licensee undergo a background check.”

The New York Times editorial page is ramping up the rhetoric, blaming Republicans and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for promoting so-called “Replacement Theory” ideas, which allegedly guided the Buffalo gunman, but it is only well into the editorial that the real purpose comes clear.

“The focus on the gunman’s motives should not obscure the fact that the most important step the government can take to impede similar attacks is to limit the availability of guns,” the editorial states.
Essentially, the newspaper takes the country right back to the gun ban strategy.

Whether the Booker-Blumenthal-Menendez legislation has any chance may be debatable. If the U.S. Supreme Court hands down a ruling next month in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen that strikes down New York’s extremist “good cause” carry permit requirement, the gun control movement would suffer a withering defeat.

There is another case up for review consideration by the high court, challenging a semi-auto ban in Maryland. If the court accepts that one for review, and comes down on the side of the right to keep and bear arms, it is essentially “game over” for the gun prohibition lobby, and they know it.

The Booker-Blumenthal-Menendez legislation requiring a federal license to buy or possess a firearm has long odds of passing, and even if it did, there is no doubt it would be challenged by every firearm rights organization on the map, possibly joined by other rights groups that would see some ugly writing on the wall."
