I am all for it, Ed, if you and all your fellow politicians give up your armed guards.

Deal?

I believe guns are banned in Mexico. That’s why they have no crime down there and no gun violence, no murders.

“So subject to those modifications,” he stated, “I don’t believe we should have millions of guns out there in the hands of people who are not part of law enforcement.”

I don't know about anybody else here but LE is the very last place I'd take refuge for protection of my life or my family's lives.

Oh but we are in law enforcement, Ed. We are here to enforce the Constitution, especially the 2nd Amendment.

I know a Jewish liberal who asked me what FFL I used for my guns. I gave him the contact info and he bought several guns. He’d never had one. Then, he asked us gun guys to take him shooting; which we did. He also bought several thousand rounds. Recently, I was talking to a liberal in the gym and it only took a minute or two and he understood that more guns meant less crime, not more. You could see the gears mesh and his mind change. I think the liberals are going to have a hard time banning guns.

“I don’t believe that in our society that we should have guns,”

Then run, RUN to the airport and head to a country where it is LEGAL to prohibit citizens from having guns. Because it is not legal here, nor will it ever be.

Ban all guns?

Go right ahead, Kroch ... ban your bodyguards from having guns. Reject any and all police protection for yourself.

We'll all watch and see how it works out for you.

If we like it, we'll voluntarily join with you.

If not ...

GFY, Kroch.

despicable what was said. But this former Mayor Koch is just the typical progressive-liberal neo-marxist. They want the second amendment basically overturned and re-written.

Hopefully a lot of people who have this fetish for anything with a badge get a wakeup call soon. Once the gun confiscations start, they are going to find out in big hurry just how much contempt LE has for the public. Got to youtube and search for police drug raids. Then just substitute the word "gun" for "drug" because that is the treatment you're going to get when your neighbors turn you in for not registering or turning in your guns. The police will blindly follow the orders of whoever is it's leash.

‘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 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.

“I don’t believe we should have millions of guns out there in the hands of people who are not part of law enforcement.”

Any other parts of the Constitution sound bad to you, Ed?

“I don’t believe we should have millions of peaceable assemblies and churches out there.”

“I don’t believe we should have millions of trials by jury out there.”

“I don’t believe we should have millions of free blacks out there.”

“I don’t believe we should have millions of voting women out there.”

Or some things NOT in the Constitution that YOUR party cherishes, Ed?

“I don’t believe we should have millions of abortions out there.”

“I don’t believe we should have millions of gays marrying out there.”

“I don’t believe we should have millions of gays in the military out there.”

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 ???

I don’t think that anyone who has voted for a DemocRAT over the last 20 years should be allowed to own a gun.

PS: We should insist that whenever anyone calls a semi-auto an “assault weapon” we make them say “so called” assault weapons.

In fact, I believe that anyone from new York ought to have their jaws wired shut and their lips sewn together.

How does that grab you, Ed?
