Skip to comments.Ex-NYC mayor: Ban all guns
Posted on 01/14/2013 10:44:20 AM PST by Mozilla
Aside from regulated hunting exceptions and those individuals who are deemed in danger by the police commissioner, all U.S. civilians should be banned from owning any kind of gun, argued former New York City Mayor Ed Koch in a radio interview today.
I dont believe that in our society that we should have guns, said Koch, a Democrat, speaking on New York WABC Radios Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.
Continued Koch: If I had my way I would pass such a law except to allow hunting and target practice and you lay out safety precautions for that.
And if you need a gun because the police commissioner thinks your life is in danger, which is the way you can get a concealed gun (in New York) today, its called the Sullivan Law, you have to have the permission of the police commissioner.
So subject to those modifications, he stated, I dont believe we should have millions of guns out there in the hands of people who are not part of law enforcement.
Koch was asked about New York Gov. Andrew Cuomos announced effort to pursue the toughest assault weapon ban in the nation.
We have to go much further, the ex-mayor replied.
I believe for example when Washington, D.C., passed a law that nobody could have a gun except law enforcement and it was struck down by the United States Supreme Court, that we should overrule the Supreme Court with a Constitutional amendment. I dont believe that in our society that we should have guns.

‘overrule the Supreme Court with a Constitutional amendment’
Old Ed knows that this amendment will never be overturned. Why no democrat will acknowlede that tyrannies are born when guns are removed from a populace is beyond me.
This is particularly amusing in light of the President today wondering aloud where people are getting the idea that the Federal Government wants to take their guns away.
They want the
second amendment Constritution basically overturned and re-written
Why don’t you personally come and get them Ed.
You goofy turd.
The Sullivan Law was enacted by the Political Gangster Bosses in Albany in order to protect their mobster gangs in NY City- look it up.
They state with a straight face that we ‘need to ban guns’ due to one percent crime rate commited with the things.
But if you say anything about illegal aliens driving drunk and killing people, drunk driving in general, or crimes commited withvehicles they go berserk screaming that you’re racist or a hater.
Pretty much applying their ‘logic’ to any other instance is said to be ‘hate’.
I live in Texas,grew up in the Bronx and STILL have many friends and Family there.
The dirty little secret regarding the gun culture in NYC that many are either oblivious or chose to ignore, is MANY folks throughout the boroughs have hidden arsenals that would make even Texans quite proud. Those who are armed to the teeth are VERY quiet and cautions but theses arsenals do exist. I have seen them.
These hypocritical b@$#%@rds make one want to barf. All these limousine libs have their tight security 24-7 all armed with enough firepower to take on a Seal Team.
Any other parts of the Constitution sound bad to you, Ed?
I dont believe we should have millions of peaceable assemblies and churches out there.
I dont believe we should have millions of trials by jury out there.
I dont believe we should have millions of free blacks out there.
I dont believe we should have millions of voting women out there.
Or some things NOT in the Constitution that YOUR party cherishes, Ed?
I dont believe we should have millions of abortions out there.
I dont believe we should have millions of gays marrying out there.
I dont believe we should have millions of gays in the military out there.
You and your ilk give up your armed security Ed
Hey Ed. You should go see the movie where only the police and the military have guns. You may have heard of it — It’s called “Schindler’s List”.
I am shocked that any older Jew could hold such an opinion. Does he forget the Nazi’s, or does he think it could not have been avoided?
Can anyone explain this to me? (really)
There lies the problem.
There has been this effort after 9/11 to deify first-responders. To this point, the police, such that if one were to shoot at the police as they attempted to confiscate your weapons you would be painted as a terrorist unworthy of public support.
When it is THOSE VERY POLICE who will be the ones sent out to confiscate your guns in violation of your god given rights.
Now, we are at a crossroads for Law Enforcement. Either you LEO’s are with the people to whom you are to “protect and serve” or you are with the ruling class and will act in their defense and on their orders.
What’s it going to be ???
If your life is in danger even after banning all guns... then banning all guns does not make you any safer, no?
to protect their gangs in NY City from an armed public who would shoot back at them- That`s a fact.
I dont believe that in our society that we should Democrats.
I think instead that we should launch a nationwide “race for the cure” effort such as the one that eradicated Polio; only this time to find a cure for the mental disorder known as liberalism.
First your vote, then your fair share, and last, your obedience... (We won't need your vote anymore)
