New Jersey -(Ammoland.com)- At a recent press conference, Democrat Party Legislative “LeadersSenator Loretta Weinberg and Assemblyman Lou Greenwald condemned Governor Chris Christie's recent gun law changes.

Leaders like Weinberg and Greenwald were condemned last month by Marc Cooper, a contributing editor to The Nation magazine and recently retired journalism professor at USC's Annenberg School:

“Most of the underpinnings of ‘gun violence' reforms are based on skewed assumptions, mixed with a sometimes shocking dose of ignorance on the part of policymakers, re-enforced by a media class that cannot often tell one end of a gun from the other.”

While being surrounded by dozens of armed guards and astroturf “activists” Senator Weinberg and Assemblyman Greenwald touted that more guns will not discourage crime or make you safer and that they will do everything in their power to reverse Governor Christies recent actions. Comical coming from two people who love being in a building with hundred of guns; the fact is they love guns–but only when they are being protected by them.

Ironically, Weinberg and Greenwald brand themselves as “champions” for women's rights, when they are knowingly advocating for women to be completely defenseless and become the victims of violent criminals.

Let me be very clear: Weinberg and Greenwald's insane logic and policies are the only reason why Carol Bowne and countless other women throughout New Jersey are victims today. They are actually willing to let innocent women be murdered by violent criminals (who could care less about the law) so that they get to make a theatrical and solipsistic fashion statement.

Throughout (normal and free) America tens of millions of women carry a firearm for their protection for the same reason Carol Bowne wanted to; because at 5′ tall and 90lbs she knew she had zero chance of physically defending herself against her psychotic ex-boyfriend who was 6'5″ and 280lbs.

If Carol lived in any other state we can assure she would be alive today.

Senator Weinberg also made the ridiculous statement that the new regulation changes will allow anyone “living or working in a high-crime neighborhood to qualify for a firearm permit.” Let's be clear. We all know what “high-crime neighborhood” is code for. We all know who Senator Weinberg wants to deny the right of self-defense.

While Senator Weinberg lives in a lavish gated community protected by armed guards, she once again advocates making the poor and working class even bigger victims by not allowing themselves the basic right to protection. They are quick to force their flawed and pro-criminal logic on every New Jerseyan by promising “safety” and making the choice for us on how we can protect ourselves, while giving themselves complete immunity in the event someone (i.e. criminals and violent felons) do not subscribe to their utopia. For those who do not know you cannot sue the State or public entities (i.e. police, etc) for lack of protection (N.J.S.A. 59:5-4).

Every year in New Jersey hundreds of innocent people living in “high-crime neighborhoods” are murdered because of one simple reason: Senator Weinberg. Does she hate guns or just blacks and hispanics with guns? Just remember that in the late 1960's, when the lion's share of New Jersey's draconian gun laws were adopted, who were they aimed at? When the NJ Legislature said, “We have to keep guns out of the hands of those people.” Who were “those people”? Here is a clue: it was during the Newark Riots.

If you are not convinced these were the main reasons feel free to watch this short documentary featuring Senator Weinberg's brand of racism:

Weinberg's statement was *VERY* personal to me because the very reason I became extremely active with the Second Amendment was because I personally witnessed a murder, while walking to my apartment, when I lived in Newark (http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/06/three_teens_charged_in_newark.html).

If you live in a “high-crime neighborhood” that is more reason to carry a gun for self-defense, not less! To make matters worse those teenage criminals who murdered the father walking home 20 feet away from me did so for no other reason aside from being “bored.” I lost several nights of sleep knowing if I had walked slightly slower that night, or read one more text message, those criminals would have crossed my path. Senator Weinberg has no clue the terror people live under, in “high-crime neighborhoods.”

In conclusion, Senator Weinberg and her cronies have been pushing mandatory mental-health evaluations if you own or want to purchase a firearm; after this political stunt it is obvious who needs a mental-evaluation and who is responsible for the hundreds of senseless murders committed by violent criminals against defenseless victims.

    Even with his tumorous brain, he was able to intelligently pick a gun free zone, making sure he didn’t have any competition during his rampage. I’ll bet he did that on purpose, because he knew if there were any concealed carries around, he would have been brought down real quick. Even with his tumor he could figure that out, right Granny ?

    Oh my…yes indeed……and…..let us not forget the annual brain scan for tumors. Whitfield,(Texas Tower shooting) was found to have a tumor in his brain which is believed to be the cause of his erratic actions.

    Mental health as a weapon against the people is communist in origin.. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. Deceptive Transformation: The Truth of Soviet Influence in America and Gun Control.. The idea of using mental health as a weapon against the people is communist in origin, and the social sciences, or the studying of human behavior has its roots in early twentieth century Russia when Ivan Pavlov developed his “classical conditioning” theories. In fact, Pavlov was disturbed that Vladimir Lenin would use these conditioning… Read more »

    There are over 370 “mental disorders” listed in the latest version of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.) The list includes “Tobacco Addiction Disorder” among other equally mundane and ridiculous so-called “mental illnesses.”

    If the DSM is the standard by which Obama wishes to remove our rights to own guns, then I’d guess 90% of the American people could probably be classified with a mental disorder of one kind or another.

    BEWARE, BEWARE

    It is quite interesting that people like Bloomberg, Schumer and Weinberg all live in gated communities with armed guards for protection because “when seconds count, the police are minutes away!” and yet they don’t seem to care about the protection of you and your family.
    I agree with Harry except you should give the Liberals the option of having a firearm with ammunition or a bucket of meat at equi-distance apart with NO armed guards and let them sort out the problem on their own. Interesting choice to be made!

    People like this should be put out in the middle of the Serengeti and given the choice to take a bucket of meat to make friends with the predators, or a gun and plenty mom ammo to protect themselves. See which one necessity dictates in their tiny brains. Even mindless insects understand self-preservation. Speaking of insects, many politicians are like cockroaches. They feed off of everyone else’s hard work, then leave behind droppings of crap that someone else has to cleanup.

    This is what our tax money buys. It`s our money. Without it, politicians are powerless. We have no one to blame but ourselves for allowing people who would enslave us, to be in power in the first place. It`s our money that is used against us. It`s our money and we should keep it. Put Government on a voluntary donation basis. They don`t do our bidding? No money. No gun grabbing. Etc.

    Democrats/Liberals are so stupid. ISIS is here and want to cut off our heads and the Democrats want to ban our guns.
