... "And in a Bizarro parody of the Declaration of Independence that, true to the nature of all 'progressive' claims means just the opposite of what they say, they demand government control the populace in an even more 'perfect,' that is, perfectly totalitarian union. Considering that Bloomberg and his fellow mayoral travelers are government 'officials,' it’s akin to British colonial officials penning the foundational document from 1776 to argue George III needed more power." ...

"A knock on the door interrupted my thoughts. I turned my head to the door and said, 'Come on in.' Nurse N. opened the door, and pushed along a cart with a laptop on top. Nurse N. is a pleasant woman, ready to retire. She takes my blood pressure and pulse, then returns to the laptop and enters my vitals. She asks a few questions. Have you been feeling this, have you been feeling that. She clicks the mouse recording my answers. 'Now I am going to ask you some mental health questions,' she says, moving the mouse around.

"St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner has discussed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's racist 'stop-and-frisk' policies for years. Ostensibly to combat 'gun violence,' the NYPD ignores the Fourth Amendment rights of over 800,000 New Yorkers per year, only about nine percent of whom are white, finding an 'illegal gun' about 0.15% of the time. That's about once per 667 searches." ...

In California our politicians think they can legislative all to safety through more constrictive gun laws and programs. One of these programs is called APPS which stands for Armed Prohibited Persons System and is aimed with taking away guns from people who shouldn't have them. On paper this sounds like it is taking assault weapons out of the hands of serial killers, but in reality this is taking weapons away from a whole bunch of non-gang members. NRA News put together a great video interviewing former DOJ Special Agent Greg Cameron and the absurdity of wasting time, money, and man power chasing after folks through the APPS program.
