If there’s one thing you must admire about the liberal progressive socialists, it’s their relentless pursuit to force their warped ideological agenda on America. They just won’t accept the failure of their beliefs and cannot understand that we have certain unalienable rights granted not by them, but by our Creator. Our individual rights are enshrined in the Bill of Rights, those first ten amendments of the US Constitution, the law of this Republic.
But not if you live in Chicago. According to Foxnews.com, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced a proposal Wednesday that would require all gun sales in the city to be videotaped, as part of a plan to allow gun stores back in Chicago under very tight restrictions. The measure, which would also ban gun stores near schools and parks, was introduced Wednesday at a city council meeting without discussion. It was then referred to the council’s Public Safety Committee.
Notice that the proposal was introduced without discussion – that’s the liberal progressive tolerant way.
What part of “shall not be infringed” does Rahm Emanuel just not seem to understand? What part of personal privacy does Emanuel want to dismiss and disregard? Who tapes the gun sales? Who maintains the files and for how long? It’s just another example of the intrusive progressive socialist mindset of the onerous, invasive government and the subjugation of the individual.
As we reported, liberals see gun ownership as “undesirable” and will do anything to appear they’re not taking away guns and the 2nd Amendment, but instead erode the possibility of acquiring firearms by instituting practices such as this. This is the low hanging fruit — instead of dealing with the issue of mental illness in America and proper treatment.
The move comes in response to a January federal court ruling that deemed Chicago’s longtime ban on gun stores unconstitutional. The court gave the city six months to approve store restrictions while lifting the ban, setting a deadline of July 14 for the new plan. The Democratic mayor’s plan, which is likely to be controversial, would aim to significantly limit any gun dealer who wishes to operate in the city. Emanuel’s proposal would also require a 72-hour waiting period for purchasing handguns and a 24-hour waiting period for rifles and shotguns. Dealers would then be able to sell only one handgun per month, per buyer. Store records would also be subject to quarterly audits.
The stores also must have a police-approved security plan before they could open. The plan would have to include exterior lighting, surveillance cameras, alarm systems and gun and ammunition storage. Store employees would also be forced to “undergo fingerprinting, background checks and training on identifying potential gun traffickers.” Stores could not reopen at the same location for three years if the city revoked its business license for ordinance violations.
Emanuel called the new rules “a smart, tough and enforceable way to prevent illegal guns in the city of Chicago.’ What a crock! Rules and laws are only adhered to by law-abiding citizens. These restrictions will only hinder those law-abiding citizens from being able to acquire a gun — which it is their right to keep and bear to protect themselves — against the illegally acquired guns.
You see, the rule of law means nothing to liberal progressives, unless the rule is in their favor. So instead of complying, based on the federal court decision, former ballerina Emanuel decides to throw a hissy fit and be an obstructionist.
Sometimes I believe these rascals are just displaying the arrested development of kids who never got picked to play. Therefore they seek office in order to get back at all those who were “mean” to them. They are the hecklers who sat in the stands and made fun of those on the field or on the court willing to play the game — and play it hard. Instead, these kids called others stupid for playing just because they didn’t get to, or chose not to.
Perhaps Rahm tried to shoot a gun one time and it scared him? And isn’t Rahm’s brother Ezekiel the author of Obamacare? What a family.
