Colorado has fallen, and NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” is rejoicing. And, they are pressing on to destroy gun rights in other states they see as vulnerable, by carpet-bombing them with fake Fudd pro-registration ads.
Above is an image from Bloomberg’s $12 million ad campaign that will be running in North Carolina, and 12 other states: Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
I am sad to see this targeted at my state, because many people will go along with it, right up until the whole state is disarmed.
WHEN WILL GUN OWNERS FIGHT BACK?
In the ads, we have a bearded actor (WITH FINGER INSIDE THE TRIGGER GUARD) dressed up in Cabella’s best, sittin’ on the tailgate of his putative huntin’ truck, portraying an “Elmer Fudd” hunter type who wants to ban those eeeevil black rifles, as long as his huntin’ gun is untouched. (UPDATE: we have someone who came via a search for “bloomberg ad finger trigger” LOL!)The whole thing is as phony as a Mississippi travelin’ snake oil salesman. We know Bloomberg wants to ban everything: rifles, handguns, and shotguns. He wants these United States to be just like England, completely disarmed, except for the crooks, the bodyguards of the elite, and the government.This is what the Fudd actor holding a shotgun says in the ad:
“I believe in the Second Amendment and I’ll fight to protect it. But with rights come responsibilities. That’s why I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”
A second spot shows the same guy saying,
“Background checks have nothing to do with taking guns away from anyone.”
What a load of horse hockey.
The euphemistic “comprehensive background checks” that Bloomberg (and Obama) seeks is really a COMPREHENSIVE NATIONAL DATABASE OF GUNS AND GUN OWNERS. That is a requirement for confiscation. Obama’s own Department of Justice has told him so. And registration was followed by confiscation in California, New York, England, and Australia. And Hitler’s Germany.
When was the last time a criminal submitted himself to a background check to buy a gun? In fact, the 5th Amendment releases them from having to go through them! Don’t believe me? Read the Supreme Court case Haynes vs. U.S. (1968), where the Court ruled that convicted felons have a Constitutional right to not register a gun, because to register a gun would be self-incrimination! Only people that aren’t criminals can be punished for not registering.
If the criminals aren’t required to register, but you and I are, why bother passing so-called universal background checks?
Power and control, that’s why. Bloomberg wants this nation to reach the point where if the cops see anyone with a gun, anywhere, at any time, they are automatically a criminal, and can automatically be gunned down by “The Only Ones” on the spot.
That, friends, is tyranny. And most people in this country, sad to say, will swallow it whole, for the illusion of safety, but actually accepting the chains of slavery. And people like me will suffer and die for it.
Alright, dang it, I’ll post one of the ads so y’all can see it. I don’t want to give these people views, but we’ve got to see it to evaluate it.MAYORS AGAINST “ILLEGAL” GUNS AD #2
Well, whaddaya know, Karl Rove must really be feeling the heat, because he actually had some sensible things to say about background checks today on ABC News’ “This Week”:
“This was prompted by the Sandy Hook murders. Those guns were legally purchased with a background check. This would not have solved something like that,” said Rove in a panel discussion on ABC’s “This Week.” “Let’s be very careful about quickly trampling on the rights of people who — and look, you want to get something done? Then stop scaring people.”
Rove said that there could be “mutual agreement” on many issues, including closing so-called gun show loopholes, but that heated Democratic rhetoric in the gun control debate had frightened many gun owners that confiscation was the next step.
“If you say should we keep the mentally ill and the — and the criminals from getting guns, everybody would say yes. But that’s not what this is about,” said Rove. “We’re talking about, in this instance, having a registry where if a grandfather wants to give a treasured shotgun to his grandson, or granddaughter, he has to register with the government and go and get approval as the government to give that gun to his grandchild.
“Sen. [Charles] Schumer [D-N.Y.] for some reason or another, insists upon keeping a registry of guns. Now, if there’s one thing that scares a lot of people who believe in the Second Amendment, is the federal government keeping a national registry of gun sales, and gun purchasers, and gun owners,” Rove continued.
Questioned on that stance by ABC reporter Terry Moran, who said the gun lobby was frightening its own supporters, Rove said such fears were “not paranoia.”
“People have a fear of this. Why do it? Why do you need it?” said Rove.
Emphasis supplied by Ol’ Backwoods.You know why they “need it”. It is for confiscation, and extermination.
In the advertisement, you see many cultural referents designed to create a link to the rural gun culture. There is a pickup truck, a beard, a plaid shirt/jacket, children in the background playing on a tire swing.
But all that is undercut by the body language of the actor who is transmitting the message. It is clear that the gun is merely a prop. It is hard for me to pin exactly what screams “fake” to me from the screen. Maybe it is the time of year. Maybe it is the way he is positioned on the truck. Perhaps more alert viewers will be able to explain it better.
I do not think that Mayor Bloomberg is going to be able to fool many people in the gun culture with this message, and I do not think he will convince many outside of it to action.
(Emphasis from Ol’ Backwoods.) Let’s hope he’s right about how effective the ads will be. Bloomie has been far too successful lately.
Ol’ Wayne LaPierre from the NRA said his piece on Meet The Depressed Press today:
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” LaPierre was reacting to Saturday’s announcement by Bloomberg of a new $12 million television ad campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns to help push senators in key states to back gun control efforts, including comprehensive background checks.
“He can’t spend enough of his $27 billion to impose his will on the American people,” LaPierre asserted.
Bloomie has a lotta billions to blow, Wayne. And he has that Napoleon attitude to go with it.
We’ve seen this movie before.
