Schneiderman Allegations May Help Explain Why He’s ‘Anti-Gun’

Disarming good people just ensures unchecked “gun violence.: (Eric Schneidermen Attorney General/Facebook)

USA – -( “Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse,” The New Yorker headlined in a blockbuster Monday evening report. “Eric Schneiderman has raised his profile as a voice against sexual misconduct. Now, after suing Harvey Weinstein, he faces a #MeToo reckoning of his own.”

Four women “accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence… They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed…”

Two of the women “say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. [One] says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him.”

It’s important to note that Schneiderman claims innocence, and is entitled to that legal presumption. Unfortunately for him, that’s not the way the #MeToo movement works, and no less a figure than Hillary Clinton, wife of accused rapist and serial abuser Bill, has asserted “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.”

If, after an investigation that includes full due process, it is determined the women are telling the truth and Schneiderman is lying, it could help explain why he is so virulently anti-gun (except for the ones in the hands of men enforcing the will of the state he represents).

Despite taking an oath to the Constitution, Schneiderman opposes the right of the people to bear arms. He also opposes the right to keep arms suitable for militia duty. Add to that his extortion of gun shows, his sponsorship of falsely-labeled “buybacks”,  his exploiting of violent crime in New York to push for restrictions in states that have fewer disarmament edicts (and less violence), and his push to use a “mental health” blanket dragnet to further eviscerate RKBA, and it’s fair to ask why anyone should believe anything a man who breaks his oath says about anything.

If it turns out Schneiderman is investigated, tried and found guilty of the accusations, particularly felony death threats, it will be a fitting bit of “karma” that he would emerge a “prohibited person,” forbidden by law to own a gun. It would also be yet another example of someone who can’t – or more likely won’t – control himself who demands to control everyone else who does not share his moral defects.

Plus, why would he want to let the women have an equalizer?

UPDATE: Schneiderman resigns.

    1. Because as with most Dumbocrats. The issue of having an armed law-abiding citizen defending themselves against the the lawless criminal or the “authorities” that believe they’re above the law goes against their principles. They prefer that we all would be left helpless, defenseless and dependent on the enforcers of whatever “LAW” they decide to cram down our throats. Even if the law enforcement official is as unreliable and untrustworthy as this NY Attorney General. The powers that be that allow him to stay out of jail should be ashamed of themselves. Felonious Law Enforcers should be hung if found guilty.

      The fact that he and I share the same initials actually gives me the creeps.

      1. I must say they are consistent. Now it is time to take out the Trash. WHY DO THESE PEOPLE IN THE STATED AREAS PUT UP WITH –IT. Don’t they know how to vote.

    3. this is the face of communism,do as i say,not as i do. it’s funny to see these staunch pillars of society turn out to be just a bunch of jerkoffs,literally.

    4. Criminals, bullies, and thugs don’t like anything that prevents them from predating on the vulnerable. Wife Beaters are in this category. The old adage “God made men, Samuel Colt made them equal.” stands true to this day.

    5. I do believe that all the liberals have a fear that guns in the hands of patriots are a threat to them. They have been so dishonest for so long that eventually something must and will happen.

    6. I can see why that perp would like to see no guns. I thought that was funny but true because one of those babes could get mad enough at him for beating her up that she could go looking for him. Open season on Sneiderman for the women he roughed up, great new sport.

    7. Correct me if I’m wrong, but just a simple charge of misdemeanor domestic violence, regardless of the verdict, is enough to become “prohibited”, if I’m not mistaken. Anyway, another white knight, filthy progressive is outed as a sick, deranged and violent tyrant. Furthermore, one of his accusers is a radical leftist feminist, so any sense of this being a political witch hunt is non existent. Nothing would me make happier (outside of the Halfrican and that filthy hatchet wound Clinton being tried and executed for treason) than to see Schneiderman convicted and put in general population in state prison. MAGA

    8. Read an article on The American Spectator which quoted the original article in The New Yorker noting that one girlfriend confided about the physical abuse to female friends (friends?) and was devastated to have them tell her not to say anything because Schneiderman was too important to the Democrats to lose him. Politics before felony assault for Democrats.

    9. You don’t seem to understand that Schneiderman is a big-wheel New York democrat. Not as big a wheel as the Clintons but a big wheel, nevertheless. As such, isn’t he entitled to be above being held responsible for possible criminal acts, just like the Clintons and other big-wheel democrats, such as Eric Holder and Husein Obama?

      1. I think David understands Schneiderman’s big-wheel Dem status perfectly, but here the left’s competitive victimhood sweepstakes comes into play. An accusing woman will always have dibs over a white male in their eyes (except for Bill Clinton), just as being a Muslim will excuse in the eyes of leftists the harsh treatment of gays and women in Islamic countries. Identity politics is coming home to roost – and I am greatly amused!

      2. Fortunately, the other big wig, filthy democrat in NY, Cuomo, hates his guts and has personally appointed a special prosecutor, to avoid any friends going easy on Schneiderman, to prosecute him. Perhaps Karma might get to have its way with him, if that Liberal Terrorist™️ Schneiderman gets to serve any time in general population in a NY State prison.
