NY Democrat:“Please Don’t Release That Document Showing We Actually Do Want to Confiscate Guns”

Posted on January 19, 2013 by Jim22

From Mental Recession:

Late last night, New York Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, one of the few Republicans with a strong enough spine to stand up to the new gun legislation, released the following statement on his Facebook page.



In the video clip (seen below), McLaughlin is prepared to discuss a list of original proposals from the Democrats regarding gun control. The list, much in the same vein that Governor Cuomo himself had discussed, actually proposed the confiscation of guns and clips.”


The list is below the fold


The list of proposals that Democrats would rather you didn’t see, can be seen below.

1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
2. Confiscation of ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be released to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons

An anti American traitor, like you. I listened to a caller into Randi Rhodes yesterday who sounded exactly like you, it was totally amazing. Do you all read the same playbook? She tore him apart btw and he was left sputtering and then resorted to the same insults that most rightwing men do on here. What a trip.

You have to go to history to show your party being interested in equality.

So just what is your point??

You get satisfaction out of knowing that, once upon a time, your party actualy cared about all Americans, not just older white folks??

While today's Republican Party is full of hatred towards the poor, immigrants, hispanics, women, gays, blacks, etc.

Are you happy with your party calling everyone who disagrees with it socialists, or worse??

That did not help you in the election, where your party was rejected in a huge way.

Democrats picked up seats in both Senate and House. Though the Repubs have a slight majority in the House, the Democrats recieved more total votes for House races than did the Republicans.

The question you should be asking is why your party changed to one of whites only racism, hatred towards minorities of all types, hostility towards women's reproductive rights.

Using data from 50 years ago and more only highlights how far into the swamp your party has gone.

So, basically what you are saying is that the Republiclown Party was ONCE UPON A TIME an actual political party for majorities of Americans.

Not the rump party of racists, anti-gays, anti-abortion, anti-science, creationism believing nitwits that it's become.

You make yourself appear increasingly foolish.

That should concern you if you are genuinely a truth seeker.
The GAO report was not mentioned by any of the Obama Team Cheerleaders. It stressed reining in government spending to sustain the future.
That is not on the Obama Team Cheerleader's talking points memos.
Why would they intentionally omit telling you something as crucial as this? It's your future too.

Adolf Hitler and Henry Ford. These are not names you usually link together, but they both had a strange mutual understanding and admiration for each other.

It is common knowledge that Ford revolutionized the world of transportation and mass production with his Ford automobile plants that started in the United States and expanded into other parts of the world. What is not as well known is his fervent hatred towards Jewish people (a hatred shared by fellow super-financier J.P. Morgan) and Ford's flagrant financial and political backing of Adolf Hitler.

Again, you don't tell the whole story. Black Americans were already swayed to the Democrat Party by the late 1930s because of the New Deal and the Great Depression. Thousands had already fled the South by the 1960s.
Accusing the Republican Party of being against civil rights based on one Republican who supported the Constitution AND civil rights but believed it to be a states' rights issue instead of the federal government's is just part of the Big Lie and dismisses decades of legislation passed by Republicans precisely to ensure civil rights.
The majorty, if not all, of black Americans had already switched loyalites when big government came on the scene in the 1930s.
That's the problem of why we are where we are today. Not one Republican who has become the liberal's "straw man" to excuse their own sins of the past.
again posting this comforting to republican but flawed yarn

Republicans have become an exclusive club.

You were ready to laugh as liberals as they lost the 2012 presidential election, go back and look at your posts.

Romney-Ryan offered a conservative choice, tried to suppress the vote and lost.

This is an important part of my rather lengthy previous post.

The few conservatives who were split at that time based it mostly on the grounds of the pacing and methods used to push civil rights. Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was on constitutional grounds. Goldwater always supported civil rights measures before and after that time.

So which is worse? Goldwater believing civil rights should be a states' rights issue on Constitutional grounds and supporting civil rights measures - or Robert "KKK" Byrd who became a repentent career politician in the Democrat Party?

I mean, that's what I'm talking about when I say liberals can't seem to figure out which is worse.

It's the same with Nixon who advanced civil rights and affirmative action but voted for busing at a time when tensions were running high in the south.

Or the only two prominent Dixiecrats who left behind the Democrat Party to join Republicans on the issue of integration.

It's a matter of discernment and perspective.

The same two things liberals try so hard to distort.

After first distancing himself from the new legislative lines the Virginia Senate GOP forced through Monday, Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) condemned his party’s political gamesmanship Tuesday.

“I certainly don’t think that’s a good way to do business,” McDonnell told reporters in Richmond, according to the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.

Republicans took advantage of the absence of a Democratic state senator (and civil rights leader) to push their surprise legislative redistricting through what is usually an evenly divided state Senate. State Sen. Henry Marsh’s (D) trip to the inauguration of President Obama briefly made the Senate makeup 20-19 in favor of the GOP, letting Republicans launch their surprise attack.

In a statement to TPM Monday night, McDonnell’s office distanced itself from the move. The governor has put forward an ambitious legislative agenda for his final year in office, and Democrats say the state Senate GOP action Monday puts McDonnell’s plans in jeopardy.

McDonnell appears to want none of the state Senate GOP move.

The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

We now know where you get your information.

When a blogger on a far right website starts out " If this is true", it likely should be investigated further.

Funny how the phony teacher missed the most important descriptive definition of flexible;

----
""characterized by a ready capability to adapt to new, different, or changing requirements <a flexible foreign policy> <a flexible schedule>""

----------

I know you're too piggish to comprehend, but what Obama so obviously meant was that he would not have the Congressional Republiclowns nipping at his heels on foreign policy after he won re-election.

But you're too vlindingly ignorant to understand any of it.

You let your inner racist speak for you.

You're disgusting.

Flex-i-ble: adj. 1. Capable of being bent or flexed; pliable.
b. Capable of being bent repeatedly without injury or damage.
2. Susceptible to influence or persuasion. 3. Fooled easily.
I added the last one just to prove a point and it fit so nicely with the others.
