NYC District Attorney Slanders Every Lawful Gun Owner Over Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Leftists just seem to love spreading slanderous, hateful, ignorant babble when it comes to the basic human right of self defense. And when it comes to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, New York City’s District Attorney is a prime example of a fascist fear-mongering about this basic human right.

You see, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (H.R. 38) would require that all states recognize the other states’ concealed carry permits, similar to how driver’s licenses operate now. That means if you live in a free state where the right to keep and bear arms is respected, you can travel to a fascist state and still bring your defensive insurance policy (handgun) with you.

But the Manhattan District Attorney doesn’t like that idea. He thinks that anyone who carries a handgun for self-defense is inherently dangerous, likely to simply explode at any moment in a furious rage, mowing down innocent bystanders in an unpredictable and bloody massacre.

Except, he’s wrong; horrendously wrong. Like, he is slandering and defaming all citizens who carry a handgun for self-defense, kind of wrong.

The Leftist DA has been a vocal opponent of the reciprocity bill because he fears citizens being able to do what they do every day in their home states: carry a pistol for lawful self-defense. And since he’s a good ol’ boy in the fascistic hub of New York City, he just can’t stand that.

He has been using social media accounts and vocally “warning” people about the dangers that the reciprocity bill presents, including a threat that recognition of other states’ carry permits would “facilitate terrorism.”

In other words, he thinks that we, the single most law-abiding demographic in the entire world, will be the ones who assist in carrying out terrorist acts. Are you feeling slandered yet?

Additionally, he even brought ISIS into the equation.

“Weak gun laws,” also known as fewer unconstitutional restrictions on the right to bear arms, apparently empower terrorists so that they will be able to come into NYC and attack civilians with firearms.

Because that’s not happening anywhere else where they have strict gun laws; not like in France or Germany or California or Connecticut… right?

Oh wait! Those places already have the things Leftists wants: no right to carry, registration schemes, onerous fees, extended waiting periods, etc… Yet with all the restrictions in place, we still find that *gasp* there is still crime and terrorism that is done by a firearm!

So the solution is to prevent anyone from being able to stop them right on the spot? Yes, this is the “logic” of the fascists. But it’s not something that should be surprising. After all, the Manhattan DA lives in a huge bubble, and has no concept of the importance or relevance this most basic human right. As Clarence Thomas so eloquently put it in one of his recent dissents:

“For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous,” Justice Thomas wrote. “But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it.”

The Manhattan DA is spreading nothing more than false, deliberately misleading, Statist propaganda to scare people into giving up their rights to an omnipotent State. That is what this DA wants. He wants each and every person to be denied their basic right of self-defense, and is equivocating laws that protect that right to aiding and abetting terrorists.

And this is supposed to be the guy who enforces the law and fights crime in Manhattan? Good grief, he doesn’t even know how to distinguish between a lawful every day carrier and an Islamic State terrorist!
