Sadly, yesterday, four New York City police officers in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, were shot while rescuing a woman and her 4-month-old baby from a hostage situation. Amazingly, all were in stable condition, and all are expected to survive. Over the past four months, eight police officers were shot in the line of duty in New York City. This has rallied Mayor Bloomberg and the Commissioner of Police, Ray Kelly, to call for even more Gun Control, their comments constituting a virtual war on guns. NYC already has some of the toughest firearm laws in the country.
Keep reading… Ok, one of the Police Officers was killed of the eight shot in NYC. This is actually horrible – I believe that Police have an extremely dangerous job, and are brave beyond belief.
Keep reading… Wait! I am frozen in my tracks.
The artice I am getting this infomration from and the stance the Mayor and the Police Commissioner are taking, is because ALL the criminals who shot the Police Officers used ILLEGAL guns. What? Yes – you heard me, IL-LEGAL, not legal, ILLEGAL.
“Every one of the criminals who has shot at our police officers possessed his gun illegally. Every one. And make no mistake: It will happen again — and again — until those in Washington stop cowering before the gun lobby.”
Ok, I am going to need help with this one. How does an increase in gun laws keep criminals from getting guns that they ALREADY obtained illegally? This would make more sense if the guns that were used were purchased in accordance with all applicable gun laws for that state. No matter how many laws are put in place, criminals will find a way to get their guns. This has been and always will be true. That is why they are called criminals. It is infuriating to listen to the Gun Control crowd and their explanations. They honestly think we are sheep, unable to think. Even a 5 year old child could point out the flaws. What do you think?
