Safe Act…give me a break!

It is just possible that government has invented something new, “safe-free zones.”
I’ll name it that and save them the trouble.

What is safe about the SAFE Act?

“To protect” is the idea. But don’t expect your rights to be secured inside.

Safe, safety

Free from danger or injury; unhurt: safe and sound. 3. Free from risk; sure: a safe bet. 4. Affording protection: a safe place.

Safe-free zones is kind of an oxymoron, but that is the result of Cuomo’s “Safe Act”.  Or you could call them rights-free zones.

Governments are instituted among men to secure their unalienable rights.
Safety would be government securing our God-given rights as a priority.

Instead, when they use the word “safe” or safety, it often means “now we are going to limit your rights.” It is not a zero sum game.  Securing rights now means taking away people’s rights. So lawmakers had to use the acronym “SAFE” for gun control. That doesn’t make it so.

 
Enter Governor Cuomo:
NY Governor Cuomo is deliberately using “Safety” as a political device. They should outlaw cars because there people can be killed in cars. No? Maybe you should be prohibited from speech in a movie theater because people have screamed “fire” or created panic. How about we ban some words because they can be used a certain way? (too late…) How about we prohibit assembly because it can turn into a riot?

When did people’s rights become such a threat to government? On the contrary, government has become a threat to our rights. Why should taking away rights make you safer?

But the real crux of the problem is someone who is tasked to preserve and secure our God-given rights, is directly trampling on them. At the very same time he is trying to promote late-term abortion – a gruesome act according to anyone with eyes to see.

Would he regulate and ban scissors because they are used in abortions? I’m serious. Even the pro-life Right is not asking for that. They don’t even blame those vacuums and suction hoses. But Cuomo actually wants to protect and legalize late-term abortions, and even let them choose the means.

So Cuomo is on a mission and the objective is to restrict, limit and destroy our rights. The other is to give even more power to the government, to track people and mine information from them, then use this information in any way they see fit against them.

All that in his agenda under the guise of “Safe”. Know this, you will not be “safe” from the ever-encroaching government or its burgeoning bureaucracy. You are not meant to be. Thus, you will not be safe or secure in your possessions or papers. You’re security and freedom is a disposable commodity to Cuomo and the Left. That “freedom” is a threat to our government and others, in their minds. How else could you explain their actions?

Government’s purpose is apparently not to protect our God-given freedom, but to usurp and abolish it. They have taken that to be their priority in doing so under this “safe act”. The Safe Act is the biggest contradiction and oxymoron I think I have ever seen. The only question for them now is where do they go from here?

Why did they have to name the freedom robbing law the “Safe Act” rather than the Freedom Abolishing Act? Then they could have even used the acronym FAACT. And the fact is they are taking freedom and liberty and burying them as deep as they can, under whatever they can, supposedly to create Safety. Only they could have thought of it.

If Obama calls his signature healthcare takeover an “affordability” act when it drives up costs, then using that standard Cuomo has declared his candidacy.

We know the Second Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. What about others?

Amendment IV

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

How about the Fifth amendment?

“…nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

How about the fourteenth Amendment:

(Sec. 1) – No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

WND – “Governor Andrew Cuomo, as the New York Times reports, proposes to repeal any protection granted third-trimester fetuses in New York. His “reform” is supported by a wide array of public figures and powerful institutions, including the organizations that perform many of the abortions in your own diocese.”

H/T to Pepp for pointing out that article in a comment on a prior post.

Remember when Hillary and others declared abortions should be safe, legal, rare. “Dr.” Gosnell destroyed her notion as the bologna it is.

…If and ONLY when the government declares it one.

How about a “Give Me a Break Act”, sound too corny?

Right to Life Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness now means restricting your second amendment. A government of, by, and for government for the the protection of same.

NY, Cuomo and Gun Con-trol

Cuomo’s Shameful SAFE Act

Rushed law is bad law, even when it’s “for the children.”

By Charles C. W. Cooke — NRO

All things being equal, New York State’s infamous new gun laws will go down in history as a prime example of the folly of hysterical calls to action; and Governor Andrew Cuomo, who led the chase for the measures, will join them in disgrace. After 20 children were killed in Newtown, Conn., last December, progressives saw a golden opportunity to reverse the liberalizing tide of recent firearms law and leverage the national outrage in favor of long-desired gun-control codes. Freed by his reelection, the president declared, in an increasingly tiresome formulation, “Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love.” In Albany, it appears that the governor took him literally.

Legislation cast in the wake of tragedy invariably carries with it the stench of the mob, and when it’s contrived in haste to protect “the children,” this is doubly so. Parliaments and institutions might protect us from the sight of angry, rash, pitchfork-wielding villagers in search of blood, but, however sanitized our politics have become, the impulse of rabble-rousing politicos is the same: Something must be done, it must be done right this second, and all naysayers are on the side of the monster. Wise men understand this, and they act to cool passions. Andrew Cuomo, we have learned in recent months, is not a wise man. His signature now adorns a law that has proven unworkable from start to finish. Next time we are told that we cannot wait for democracy or reflection to soothe passions, we might remember the course that New York has taken.

In Newtown’s aftermath, reacting became synonymous with fixing the problem; expressing support for change was treated as if it were the same thing as preventing tragedy; and those who urged patience or reason were seen as siding with the devil — or, worse, the Second Amendment. These tendencies were widespread, but Cuomo’s rhetoric stood out in particular, ranging as it quickly did into the extreme. So grave was the new threat, Cuomo warned, that New York State should consider “confiscation” of “assault weapons,” or, if that was too drastic, it should enforce “mandatory sales to the state.” There had been, we were told, a “sea change” in America. From now on, everything would be different.

SHOUTING his way through his State of the State speech on January 9, 2013, the governor outlined his thinking. “Guns impose huge economic costs, as well as [a cost in] lives,” he bellowed. “Fear of gun violence invades neighborhoods, causing disruptions in the normal rhythms of life, work, and school. That threat depresses property values and puts a drag on economic development.” This being so, and legislation being inescapable, there would be time for neither public input nor committee hearings. In a startling move, Cuomo issued a “Message of Necessity,” using a provision in the state’s constitution designed to permit expedited state action in a case of emergency. This gave Cuomo the power to suspend the usual democratic rules and charge forward.

He couldn’t allow public debate, he argued, lest it “cause a rush on the market of people who wanted to buy assault weapons.” He couldn’t allow the usual three-day waiting period between a bill’s being introduced and a vote’s being held, in case legislators asked difficult questions or tried to stall the measure. In a move that would have made Nancy Pelosi proud, Cuomo allotted state lawmakers mere minutes to read the bill before voting on it. Indeed, so aggressive were Cuomo’s tactics that the Albany Times Union, which was supportive of the basic thrust of the legislation, editorialized that he behaved like a man possessed of “a truncated view of the legislative process and a cynical view of representative government.” The governor disagreed: “If there is an issue that fits the definition of necessity,” Cuomo shot back, “I believe it’s gun violence.”

The empirical governor sounds a lot like Barack Obama blaming the sequester for everything from his TSA and firefighter threats to airport delays and White House tour cuts, and then falsely blaming Republicans. Birds of the feather. Just throw it all in there.

Anyone willing to suspend Constitutional government for his agenda — or hold it hostage in Obama’s case — and incite panic amongst the people, is willing to say just about anything to defend it. (as we see from Obama)

Oh, he says nothing about the fears he caused by enacting the legislation and the process he employed to do it. That is the fear of tyrannical government that really disturbs people. That is the threat of deceitful, scheming, tyranny at its worst. Not to mention all the shouting he did along the way. Different indeed!

The fallout of his political maneuvering?

(NRO)Before the massacre at Newtown, Cuomo had an approval rating of 74–18. After he pushed the bill, it dropped to 59–28, still high but a dramatic drop. Among Republicans in the state, he moved from 68–18 to 44–43. Cuomo “was afraid of the public rising up — and the public has risen up,” New York Conservative-party chairman Mike Long says. “There are 52 counties that have introduced resolutions calling for repeal. There are 40 counties that have passed resolutions. Three weeks ago, citizens held the largest rally that ever took place in Albany: over 5,000 people.” By the time people took to the streets, a petition urging Cuomo to revisit the law had collected 83,000 signatures.

But who really cares about Cuomo’s political survival when he took a Samurai Sword to the 2nd amendment, the state constitution, and the bill of rights? How it is legislators could go along with his machinations is beyond reason. Are they really telling people that, like legislators in the federal District of Corruption, there isn’t a damn thing they can do about it? “By George”, I think they have!

I guess it is just too bad for the subjects of his Empirical State.

So why does Obama need 1.6 billion hollow-point bullets? – Safety?

As it turns out, those people who “cling to their guns” are not so wacky after all. I’d vouch for their sanity over an out of control government any day. Interesting how both Cuomo and Obama fancy themselves as a model to others. And neither can ever be shamed out of office. We saw the same scenario with Clintons and it has only gotten (much)worse since.

It’s time we get familiar with the truth, so we know how it all went down.

Jim Carrey goes ballistic against Heston and guns

Jim Carrey is officially reducing himself to “has been” status. Carrey did a video ad mocking Charlton Heston, to light off his attack on gun owners in the US. He’s now crossed the point of no return like some before him, including Rosie O’Donnell.

Who knew Carrey was in dire straights before this? He must be desperate for any attention he can get. He pounced on the late Charlton Heston at a time anti-gun lobbies and some legislators are salivating over the opportunity, post Newtown, to regulate guns.

The late Charlton Heston had been a leading advocate of gun owners and the NRA. Plus he was well-respected. This appeared to be an opportunity to take down Heston’s and NRA’s status on the issue. And Carrey comes out swinging in every direction in a frantic, helter skelter skit mocking Heston and his views toward guns – especially the “from my cold dead hands” quote.

Call it a character assassination or whatever you like.

Jim Carrey can only hope that this rallies support for him and the whole gun control issue as planned. In doing so, he revealed himself to be just another self-centered Hollywood elite clamoring to make himself relevant. While he is likely taking all calls from his pals and celebrity fellow travelers, he is not answering calls to explain or debate his positions anyplace on non-sympathetic outlets. Satire rumor has already begun.

Time will tell if he’s the new big anti-gun zealot on the stage. Outside the Piers Morgan or David Letterman, where else can he really go? He dug himself into a foxhole and he doesn’t seem to care that he alienated a large portion of the public.

It is the next best thing for his career to strapping on a suicide vest and declaring himself Fire Marshall Bill, then yanking the detonator with his patented smirk. The only question now is how far can  he propel his remains, “Let me show you somet’ing

But wait, there’s more. Don’t overlook the obvious, he’s also taking aim at Midwestern flyover folks by portraying the people as slow and dumb. Ah shucks, Jim! You really can’t miss that either. Its a twofer for the former headliner. He made a beeline straight for the hog pen, mocking how antiquated and stupid they and the whole gun rights thing are. Jim, you’re a special kind of stupid, aren’t you? You’re the one out of touch.

The last time I felt an insult with this much venom it was Obama talking about gun clinging, Bible thumping, bigots in rural America. Yea, like that one, file this under “how to win friends and influence political enemies”. It works every time. Insult the hell out of them to win them over. And maybe this is the hat trick or trifecta, because Heston after all is associated with playing roles in Biblical films. So it looks like Carrey has all his bases covered. Nothing will pry the issue from Carrey’s cold dead heart.

What’s next for Carrey? I know, why not light off some fireworks around John Wayne’s grave too. Cast a few aspersions on him — maybe a nice character attack. That should win over a few more folks to the anti-gun cause, don’t you think? Fire Marshall Bill had more class than this loony from Leftville.

He’s not a celeb, he just plays one on TV. So get a life, Jim, Heston’s is already taken.
Bye-bye, Jim. See you in the funnies….not.
Yep, he was destined for the old dustbin of stardom – “take a seat.”

PA county seeks to preserve 2nd amendment

Pennsylvania county makes new federal gun laws “unenforceable”

Red Alert Politics

February 28, 2013

Worried about the federal government imposing overly-restrictive new gun laws? One Pennsylvania county is saying, “Not in our backyard!”

Susquehanna County commissioners have passed a resolution to fully protect the Second Amendment from any federal laws infringing upon it, as reported by The Times-Tribune.

The resolution states that that “any federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that in any way infringes on our Second Amendment rights by attempting to reduce the private ownership of any firearm, magazine or ammunition shall be unenforceable in Susquehanna County.”

Republican Commissioner Michael Giangrieco, who proposed the resolution, admitted that the resolution was mostly ceremonial, but said it was an important message to send in response to harsher New York gun laws and laws currently being proposed in Pennsylvania.

The County has seen a sharp increase in gun permit applications since the Sandy Hook shooting, with about 175 in the first three weeks of January, already outpacing the 2012 monthly average of 133.

THE WAKING GIANT

Never letting a good crisis go to waste, New York passed the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation in response to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Not only are semiautomatic rifles such as the popular AR-15 banned, but citizens who own handguns are limited to only seven bullets.

These law-abiding, gun owning Citizens have had enough!

“JUST TELL US NOW WHAT THE PENALTIES ARE GOING TO BE WHEN WE DON’T COMPLY!!”
