"There's no leadership" on gun reform, says Michael Bloomberg - CBS News:
"I think all of us have a responsibility between now and then, call your congressman, call your senator, and say we want you to do something about this. I don't want to have my child at risk. I don't want to personally be at risk from crazy people with -- should, who shouldn't have guns," Bloomberg said.
The crazy thing about "calling your congressman ...." and saying "..we want you to do something about this" (speaking of Gun Control legislature) is that your congress-critter has no better idea what to "Do About This" than does Bloomberg, who thinks crazy people are those who don't agree with him.
Well ... except "Mister and Mrs America, Turn 'em All In!"
(Sorry ... a Nancy Pelosi moment; I'm just overwhelmed with emotion. Give me a minute?)
Thanks ... I feel better now.
But (CONFISCATION) is the only possible solution to the "Gun Control Problem". As long as one single private citizen has access to a firearm, the gun deaths will just keep rolling in. You know it's true; Nancy Pelosi said so!
The solution is to make guns illegal. That way nobody will ever get shot again.
Except that the people who turn in their guns will have no defense against criminals, who have this evil smirk on their faces, hoping that civilians will voluntarily render themselves defenseless against predation. Because criminals don't NEED guns to assault the weaker members of our society ... such as old people, like me. Guns just make their jobs so much easier, as long as they are the "Only Ones" who have guns.
So if you give up your guns ... well, you do the math. The guns will be melted down, Ford will buy the slag and build 10 million cars that nobody wants, and you will be unable to outrun a bullet from the guy who carjacks your Ford Fiesta. Because for DAMN sure, he didn't give up HIS gun! (Except why anyone wants to own a Ford Fiesta I'll never know ... do they even make them any more?
Here's where Nancy Pelosi's advice becomes useful: "Mr and Mrs America, Give Up Your Ford Fiestas ... Give 'Em All Up!"
(If gun control works, wait until the Liberals follow up with "Knife Control"!
See how well that has worked in Not-So-Great Britain!)
