Jayne goes on to blither about polls... polls that support the leftist desire to infringe on the 2nd Amendment (And I'm sure a corresponding reduction in Jayne's FIRST Amendment rights wouldn't be received quite as well) rights of law-abiding gun owners and that's all well and good.
A national poll released last week by CBS News indicated that 49 percent of Americans believe gun laws should be more strict, while 12 percent say they should be less strict and 36 percent think they're just right. A HuffPost/YouGov poll also showed 49 percent in favor of stricter gun laws. Following the Sandy Hook shooting, support was anywhere from 57 percent to 60 percent.Isn't it amazing that the newspaper for the communist left can pull out "polls" for whatever it is they want... whenever it is they want to do it... while ignoring local ELECTIONS that were just held here?
Yup... Jayne whips out some numbers he likes while the organization he works for totally ignores the results of the advisory election that crushed their loot rail scam.
So, here's the thing: I don't give a damn what the cherry-picked polls say that support the Pravda Izvestia's position.
Until they begin to reflect the only polls that matter here locally... those at the ballot box... polls aren't a reason to support anything this cancer on our community demands.
The situational ethics Jayne displays here... while typical of their ilk... does nothing to further his cause: whatever value Jayne places on the polls he pulled out does nothing to replace the contempt he and his organization show for the will of the people in THIS county for the hated CRC Scam.
And until the despicable organization he works for acknowledges and advocates for THOSE results... then they've really got zero credibility for any others. Add that to the fact that he provides zero suggested changes in gun laws that will make any difference except to further punish lawful gun owners for the acts of those who would violate the law...
Here's a response to the wave of leftist babble about infringing on our rights:
From This Ain't Hell:
December 15th, 2013
Shocking? Well, not really. He was at Newtown, Connecticut yesterday, lighting candles and paying lip service to the tragedy there on it’s first anniversary. Anyway, Fox News reports his remarks;
“We have to do more to keep dangerous people from getting their hands on a gun so easily. We have to do more to heal troubled minds,” the president said in his weekly radio address, before he and first lady Michelle Obama remembered the shooting victims and their families in a moment of silence. They also lit a candle for each victim during a White House event.
“We have to do everything we can to protect our children from harm and make them feel loved, and valued and cared for,” the president said.I agree completely, those are things we should try to accomplish. But, you know, that’s not what he wants to do, really. The anti-gun fascists want to keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. That’s what will make them feel safer.
Adam Lanza tried to purchase a firearm, but existing gun laws prevented that from occurring, so he murdered his mother and stole her guns, the guns that she owned legally, so the only way that the Sandy Hook tragedy could have been prevented was if the government had confiscated all of the guns in Connecticut. Or they could have institutionalized Lanza. Jared Loughner bought his handgun legally, despite the fact that local law enforcement had several encounters with him and should have arrested him, giving him a record of anti-social behavior which might have prevented him from buying a gun. James Holmes bought his guns legally, despite the fact that he had sent to his doctor a notebook which contained his plans to carry out an attack like the one he did in Aurora, Colorado. The doctor just never reported it to police.
Like in so many other instances, the president’s words don’t match his intentions. Legislation in Congress only focused on making it harder for people who obey laws to buy guns, not the people who buy their guns in dark parking lots.
Only 2% of convicted criminals admit that they got their firearms arms at gun shows or other private sales, yet that’s the target of gun-grabbers. None of the perpetrators of the so-called “mass shootings” ever acquired their guns that way – they all showed signs of being unable to responsibly own guns – but they still got their hands on them. Not because existing laws failed, but rather because feeling good about ourselves trumps public safety. No one wants to take responsibility for getting potential criminals off of the streets.Yup... Jayne's worthless spew nails it... NOT.
Another bizarre, whining, fringe left column.
