    Default Governor of Connecticut: "Why should you be able to buy a gun?"

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013...-unbelievable/

    "Ninety-two percent of the American people want universal background checks. I can’t get on a plane as the governor of the state of Connecticut without somebody running a background check on me. Why should you be able to buy a gun? Or buy armor-piercing ammunition? It doesn’t make any sense"

    Isn't armor piercing ammo already illegal for civilians?

    You should be able to, guv.

    It's called "freedom".

    But you wouldn't know about that.

    Yes, and they know it.

    Just more willful spreading of propaganda.

    I could tell you, Guv - but then you'd have me arrested.

    Which would only prove my point ...

    No, HE shouldn't. He wants to take away our rights, and has done so to the people of Ct. As such, he has none. WE should be able to.

    If I can find a seller willing to sell me anything that's potentially dangerous without a background check, why should anyone be able to stop that transaction?

    And how would they do that except with guns? And who would want to sell guns to people that have such a mental illness that they think they can go around and tell people what things they can and can't buy and sell?

    Therefore anyone who wants to enforce these regulations should not be allowed to buy guns, and then the regulations lose all enforcement potential.

    You're in the wrong New England, Mr. Malloy.

    May I recommend moving to New England, Australia?

    The implication in this statement is, of course, that he believes that by virtue of being the Governor of Connecticut he should be of elevated status, and should not have the same rules applied to him. The reason we need firearms is to defend ourselves from people who think this way.

    CT's Pussy In Chief... erm, I mean governor asks why should I be able to buy a gun.

    The answer is rather simple: it is one of the many things that free men do and for which they are not required to ask permission of anyone.

    There's no way those statistics are right. Ninety-two percent want universal background checks? There's just no way. There's got to be more NRA members and supporters than just 8%. The reason I say that is because I used to sell NRA memberships over the phone and the "universal background checks" was part of the script as something the NRA was fighting. If only 8% of Americans believe in that, then there's no way they would put that in the script.

    Careful with that one. Advocating freedom for SOME is still a dangerous concept, no matter who the "some" you had in mind happens to be.

    Let me translate the quote in the OP:

    Why should people be able to protect themselves from government, with force when necessary? What could possibly go wrong by fully disarming an entire public?
    ... and, at what point would ANY criminal with more than a room temperature IQ ever submit to a Background Check if they intend on using a gun to commit a crime?

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintian an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.
