Armed Police Protection for Kamala Harris, the Height of Elitist Hypocrisy

If it were up to Harris and her useful idiot followers, they'd all be illegal except for the guns carried by state enforcers. (KamalaHarris/Facebook)

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Armed, plain-clothes LAPD officers were dispatched to California cities outside of Los Angeles at least a dozen times to provide security for U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris at public events, media appearances, and a party,” NBC Los Angeles reports. “The LAPD routinely provides security for dignitaries and officials visiting LA, but a senior retired department official said the courtesy extended to Sen. Harris for her travels to other cities was unprecedented.”

What’s not unprecedented are gun-grabbing politicians who would deny you the right to protect yourself and your family while using tax plunder to make sure their safety is taken care of. Their security detachments can even go armed in so-called “gun-free zones.” At least they have that in common with private criminals.

And Harris is such a hypocrite. And a lying one at that.

“This cannot be a political issue,” she tweeted disingenuously after Parkland, not bothering to explain why she insists on making it one. “We have to have smart gun safety laws – our babies are being slaughtered.”

And what gun safety laws does she consider “smart”?

First of all, forget allowing teachers to make the choice to arm and protect themselves. Harris tried to shoot that plan down by pointing out “trained law enforcement officials, they only hit of their intended target approximately 20 percent of the time,” making it fair to ask if that means her armed security detail poses an 80% danger to the public.

Harris supports “further restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms.” She’s trying to “export California gun control to the nation.” She used “dirty tactics” in the Peruta case to fight the right of all Americans (except for enforcers) to bear arms. And naturally she doesn’t want you to be able to possess “common defense” firearms consistent with the intent of the Second Amendment.

But the guys you pay for who are protecting her, the “Only Ones,” can have it all. And more.

But no fair, some will argue. She’s an important politician. That makes her more of a target than “ordinary” people.

Let’s forget the congressmen killed in duels. It’s been half a century since Robert F. Kennedy, the last U.S. Senator was assassinated, and the one before him, Huey Long, was shot to death in 1935, presumably by his own bodyguards.

As far as the most dangerous jobs in America, “politician” doesn’t make it anywhere near the top 25, all of whom, aside from law enforcement officers, Harris demands be disarmed.

Here’s the thing – reasonable people can agree that some politicians, especially high-profile ones, can require extraordinary protection for situations regular constituents are not likely to encounter—the crazy, violent Bernie supporter who shot up Republican congressmen at the baseball practice, or the nutjob “progressive” #MarchForOurLives supporter arrested for trying to stab a congressman the other day come to mind.

By the same token, Kamala Harris is unlikely to be subjected to the myriad dangers ordinary citizens face. It’s doubtful she’ll ever have some reptile stick a gun in her face at a convenience store, or live in a dangerous neighborhood overrun by gangs, or be the victim of a home invasion, or be raped and slaughtered just because some animal feels like doing it to her. Yet she would prevent every one of those potential victims from protecting themselves.

She would prevent you if you let her.

    1. When it comes to all of the Vets in this country, it is a disgrace that they have so much trouble getting quality medical treatment, but letting illegals come in and our government falls all over them and provides any service to them no problem! I do not take any of the volunteer work that is done for our Vets, but it sure shows just how much the short comings of our government to providing care for our Vets that have put their lives on the line to defend our country and our way of life! But let an illegal show up and they can’t do enough for them no questions asked! I’d say this is way out of line

    2. A B another fine view about police in general, there are good and bad in all walks of life, but you choose to put all police in the bad group with a scum-bag politician, try walking in a police officer’s shoes for a week, maybe you might see their profession in a different light!!!!!!!! But then you probably don’t have the gonads to do that!!!!!!!!

    3. Baton Rouge:

      It would appear that that is pretty much the case, the lives of elected things seem to be of greater importance than are the lives of the electorate.

    4. I loved this article and I forwarded it to many of my blogging friends, but I was hoping you could give some suggestions for a sales page/site.Most impoprtant point is choosing words

    5. Okay here we go now we have to break down the Demo-Rats that keep trying to take away our 2nd amendment rights, and the Anti-Abortion gang; No body wants to put them together but they have the same end result, the Demo-Rats always say that Guns kill children/Abortion kills children Who is the biggest offender? Guns or Planed Parenthood? WHAT IS THE PRICE OF A CHILDS LIFE? Same question, WHO DOES MORE and why won’t anybody answer that question?

      1. any one with a lick of REAL SENSE, WOULD SAY PLANNED MURDER HOOD IS THE BIGGEST THREAT TO THE UNBORN.
        but COMMUNIST DEMORAT SUPPORT THEM. and every OTHER INSANE CRAP.
        and COMMUNIST DEMORATS ARE ALSO THE BIGGEST THREAT TO ALL AMERICANS.

        1. They support killing the unborn, knowing that planned parenthood was started by the racist Margaret Sanger who wanted to exterminate the black race through abortion. They also hate the NRA which was started to protect the 2nd Amendment rights of blacks that the Dems were trying to remove. They are the REAL racist party and prove it every day.

    6. Wild Bill ,I very much intend to vote and take on any Demo-Rat that wants to support Planned Parenthood selective Abortions, also the Politicians that will not answer my main question about why nothing has been done to secure our schools as T S A has done for our Airports, WHAT IS THE PRICE OF A CHILDS LIFE?????? NOT OF ANY POLITICIANS WILL ANSWER IT!!!!!!!! They will only answer with a line of B S and do nothing about it!!! All the Demo-Rats want is to take away our 2nd amendment rights period, nothing less!!!!

      1. Strikes me as sad that the gun rights argument, and this Pro Life/Anti Abortion business seem to keep coming up, tangeled together, when the two issues have no legitimate relationship. Speaking for myself, I am, have been and intend to remain PRO GUN/PRO GUN RIGHTS. As for this pro life/anti abortion business, since I’m a HE, rather than a SHE, there is no now way that I’m going to become pregnant. That said, I would not presume to dictate what a woman might or might not do with her own body. Additionally, and I submit that correspondents here might think on this aspect. How many people who might be on our side concerning firearms could this pro life psalm singing and proselytizing be driving away? Strikes me as worth considering.

    7. RegT you are very right about The Scam That Planned Parenthood has about the Abortions that they do, All of the B S that is thrown around about Common Sense gun laws, Why haven’t our quote GREAT POLITICIANS, not done anything other than make GUN FREE ZONES, around our schools, my question is still and will be until they all get off their DEAD ASSES and do something, WHAT IS THE PRICE OF A CHILDS LIFE???????? NONE OF THEM WILL ANSWER THAT QUESTION? This all started in 1999 in Columbine then, They formed the T S A in 2001 after 9/11 in less than 30 Days, we don’t like it but it is doing what it was designed to do!!!!!! John S you are right about it is coming, a lot of people are saying it, we have the Republicans then to follow are all of the rest that have their hands out for their freebies what a heck of a country we will have then

    8. KH is as “Black” as I am–she is an ethnic Indian from India–married to a wealthy white jewish middle-aged lawyer–who is a partner in DLA Piper–just trading on her “Blackness” !!! DMD

    9. “We have to have smart gun safety laws – our babies are being slaughtered.”
      Why isn’t this ignorant, lying twit doing something to stop the real babies being slaughtered – by Planned Parenthood? Someone should have called her on her hypocrisy right then and there, and asked her how much Planned Parenthood has donated to her.

    10. KB find a deep mine shaft and line the top with HE crawl in and set it off, you will be perfectly safe from that point on!!!!! WB she can’t read what do you expect? So telling her to read the constitution is a waste of time!!!!!!!! I also took that oath years ago, to protect from foreign and domestic, and I intend to stand by that oath!!!!!!!!!!

    11. One might note that given the fact that California voters elected her, they deserve her. Sad to note though, the rest of the nation deserved better.

      1. No it was the illegal aliens who voted for her. If the truth were known I would bet that as high as 30-40 of illegals vote for DemocRAT candidates in the State of Californication..

        1. So regarding the problem, real or imagined, caused by votes cast by non U.S. Citizens, illegal aliens or otherwise, action that one thinks would violate federal law, what are the mavens of the FBI for instance, DOJ for another, doing about it?

          1. There have been attempts to require ID checks at the polls but the DAMOCRATS have blocked these at every turn. Aided by the ACLU and liberal judges they have turned this back by claiming poor people don’t have access to ID’s.

            1. @Robt H, The only thing that is going to save us is if we can get more people to vote than the SocDems, and their legions of dead, brain dead, and illegals.
              Throw a barbecue on November 6 for your friends that go to the polls. Drag your family down to vote with you. This next sentence is heresy: don’t go hunting that day, go to vote!

    12. Methinks We The People are in for real stormy seas ahead, if this country is to continue to exist as a Constitutional Republic and a land of laws and justice. I see a Third World coming, very soon. Are you willing to live in it? I sure as hell DID NOT go off to war on this nation’s behalf, lose my legs to an enemy IED, and deal with the consequences, just to fall under the rule of such evil, destructive elements as we see with people like this POS race-mongering bitch and her ilk. I’ll perish behind my stand, and leave a hell on earth for as many of these harmful people as I can, before that ever happens. I did it once, can do again. That day seems to be inevitable for us; they will bring it, I am certain. A matter of time, and slippage. Sad, but it is what we have allowed by our complacency, and misplaced trust.

      1. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. I agree with you ( I too took an Oath as an Officer many years ago)……..” to protect, both foreign and domestic ” ….
        Who would have thought our Republic may see another un-Civil War, v2.0 ? So be it; I’ll defend the Constitution from these people; just wish I could do it from above….again.

      2. I cannot imagine your sacrifice, THANK YOU ! I agree, the storm is coming, and soon. It may not occur during MY lifetime, but I am fairiy certain it WILL occur before my children are gone. I grieve for all those who have given so much, only to have their sacrifices spit upon by the ones pushing the agenda of the left !

      3. No words can express my appreciation for your service to keep us safe. I get exactly what you are saying about the world going down the crapper. My dad fought on the front lines in Korea, and received two Purple Hearts and a bronze star. I went home to visit with my parents, and my Dad and I were outside talking. We chatted about all this political nonesense that was taking place. I have never forgotten, him telling me that he was glad he would not be around to see the down fall of this country. Sadly, he passed away 6 months later. Our soldiers have given their lives, limbs, sanity, health and are rewarded with a slap in the face. But, let’s make sure we provide great medical care, welfare and education to our illegals. I am fighting back tears!

    13. Is explanation really neccessary? Goes like this….because she is a public figure to whom some hold very strong oppositions to, she could very possibly be targeted by those who wish to do her harm. Me? Not so much. I dont need security. See the difference? One can be smart and know that every situation is not the same or one can have a thick skull and pretend like it is for politic arguments.

      1. Something for you to think about.

        The same crazies in our country that would do harm to her, would not hesitate to do the same to you. If it’s dangerous for her, it’s just as dangerous for us, or maybe… more so.

        Think about that for a minute.

        1. Good words Country Boy. Something else for them ‘pollytishuns’ to keep in mind – they were elected to serve the people and do their will, not to grandstand (yep that is directed to booker) and self serve. Plus, they fail to realize that someone else, possibly (actually likely) even MORE capable of representing the people can and will fill her void if she departs. Even juan mcamnesty has already been replaced…………..

      2. So are you saying her life is worth more than yours? Her death or harm coming to her would be more hurtful and painful than if it were to happen to you?

    14. Are you serious? It’s the new age of Trump and the false rhetoric he speed out everyday claiming Dems. want your guns. We want common sense gun laws. That’s common sense. Who needs military type weapons? Why can’t there be background checks?
      The 2nd amendment was designed before we had a military so it fell to individuals to protect themselves from the dangers then of any overthrow of government. A new nation becoming independent of British rule. A fragile time. The founding fathers couldn’t see the weapons of the future. Where they were looking at muskets then, they couldn’t possibly foresee machine guns and automatic fire. It’s all about the money. And lives have become expendable.
      Senator Harris is an honest champion for the rule of law. That is straight up good character. So many people are willing these days to sacrifice their fellow man. What a country!

      1. @KB, There are no common sense gun laws. The founders preempted future Congresses from making any laws that infringe on the keeping and carrying of firearms. The Fourteenth Amendment preempts the state legislatures from such action. Read your Constitution and cases.

      2. Wake up Kathleen. The democrats have stopped hiding the fact they want all guns taken away from the public sector. Please define ‘common sense’ gun laws for us all to understand . That phrasing has been made part of the lexicon by the media with no explanation of what it means. There are over 20,000 laws on the books that regulate weapons, none implemented anywhere, at any time in history or in any country around the world has proven to be effective in ending mans inherent violence. It’s not the weapon, it’s the person wielding it. Please describe military weapons that are available to the public. None are that I am aware of, only ones that are patterned after military weapons. You displayed your ignorance of the laws of gun purchase. A background check is conducted by every Federal Firearm Licensee prior to the transfer of any regulated weapon. As for the weapons of our fore fathers, many had their own battleships and many owned cannons. The object of the 2nd amendment is for the citizens to arm themselves from tyrannical rule, would you like to defend yourself with a musket, or a modern weapon. As for Sen. Harris’s character, I’ll refer you to the recent senate confirmation hearings where she made a complete fool of herself pandering to voters. She had no intention of asking pertinent questions of Kavanaugh, no case law was even questioned, and he clearly understood the issues better than she.

      3. KB – get your history right! It is obvious you know nothing about Constitutional history. You just made up a bunch of nonsense for your response.

      4. Your 1st three questions already prove you no nothing of which you speak about firearms, in general, nor the 2nd A and legal gun owners.. And it’s already illegal to commit murder. Yes, there are laws to punish murderers with already,There are thousand of gun laws already too. Hmmm, they didn’t work. WHY? Need you be reminded the ones doing the killing are criminals ?…and they don’t follow the gun laws we have now, and will not follow any new gun laws either. (hint:, that’s what makes them criminals) More laws only hinder us, the law abiding gun owners, who BTW are NOT murdering ANYONE. What we need is “more sensible politicians” who understand & operate on logical thinking and our US Constitution and Bill of Rights and not their feelings. They took an oath to uphold the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, when sworn into office…then they try to circumvent it, and now, have the audacity to ask to destroy it.You sound like a socialist to me.

        God, Guns and Guts made the USA free. At any cost , keep all three.

      5. Kathleen there are already over 20,000 gun laws in effect…. Tell me again how telling everyone that some thing is the “law” is gonna stop someone from breaking the “law”? Go ahead I’ll wait….

      6. Kathleen I agree, we need “common sense” gun laws. Concealed carry reciprocity, allowing those that have been vetted to carry in all 50 states, is a must. Why should crossing an imaginary state line force me to be defenseless? Let’s remove silencers from the burden of a $200 tax stamp and months long wait. Hearing protection is important! “Gun-free zones” are lunacy, remove those except where armed guards are present. Glad you’re on board with common sense, as all those suggestions are; see you on the gun range!

      7. KB,
        You know nothing about what you are saying. Why is this subject so stuck on the liberals mind. I will tell you, They want all guns taken so they can make us part of the new world order the UN has been trying to get. I will not stand for th UN to tell me what to do with my life. Trump is doing what we elected him to do. Drain the swamp, and build the wall to keep out the the filth of the world.

      8. Sometimes it’s better to be seen and not heard KB.You were just schooled by these good people that really know what their talking about.Hope you learned something from them ,I sure did.Thanks guys.

      9. Please review the History on gun laws. The first in this nation forbade Blacks from having guns to prevent them killing their slave owners. Thereby becoming free. The Sullivan Act in New York was to prevent common (Irish Immigrants)people from owning guns to protect themselves from the corrupt Tammany Hall Politicians and their thugs. After the Civil War The Klan got laws passed to keep blacks from owning guns. It seems that the white sheets they wore while burning crosses on Black family’s from yards made too good a target. Read the history of gun control laws passed in Nazi Germany, and in every country they invaded. Ask 6 million Jews in those countries how they felt about Gun Laws. Oh I’m sorry they can’t tell you they are all dead. Then go on to laws passed in Turkey that allowed them to murder 3 million Christian Armenians. China, Russia, and Cambodia all had gun laws for and additional 50+ million more dead. Guns don’t commit Mass Murder, Governments with leaders like Senator K Harris do. Our founding fathers were honest and knew that to remain free we needed the Second Amendment to protect us. Harris is anything but honest and a Champion of the people

        1. Actually Tammany Hall was an Irish organization originally called the St. Tammany Society. It was a Democratic Party organization organized to provide political clout to recent Irish Immigrants. The Sullivan Act — and by the way, Sullivan is about as Irish a name as you can get — was passed to keep the Italian and Jewish criminal gangs from having firearms. (Actually those were not the sobriquet the Irish used when referring to the Italians and Jews, but this is a family web site) PLEASE TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE, Tammany Hall was a Democratic political organization although it originally started out as a sort of political Knights of Columbus with a phony religious front.

          1. It has been a long while since I have looked into New York Politics. You were right about Tammany Hall being Irish and Democratic party run. But I was correct in my assertion that it was law aimed at an ethnic minorities. Gun laws are always used for People Control not crime control. Tammany Hall was a corrupt DemocRat criminal organization that sold political favors and in some cases had rivals killed. The true Mass Murders have and always will be Politicians and Governments.

      10. Also your knowledge (read lack thereof) of the type of firearms available in the 1700s and 1800s also leaves much to be desired. Wasn’t it Ben Franklin that made the discovery that lightening is electricity? I guess he didn’t see progress was to be made there either…right? WRONG.

        The Forefathers were some of the most intelligent men of their time. They knew great advances would be made in the future concerning firearms. They were already starting to see progress made AAMOF. Just to name/show a few: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdlecO3gyOo#t=20.121184 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_hnC6x036Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dZLeEUE940

        Also in the Civil War (1861-1865) , Spencer made a lever action repeating rifle, that was supplied to the Union forces, so the people who claim it was only “muskets” used during the Civil War are wrong too. And there were semi auto pistols in 1893 too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGkw7jNAlxs

        And about the history of the AR-15, you really need to watch this. : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKVBeZkqDxU
        Please be thoroughly informed of which the subjects you speak out about. otherwise people will think you’re a fool.
        Also, always engage your brain before shifting your mouth into gear.

      11. Well you better tell and Dianne Feinstein, Hillary Clinton to stop their anti 2nd A BS then.
        here, watch them say it themselves:
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNBfx7zPegA
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nlhQafsx3o

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryUbJfg4tAo
        And just for fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI9tov6A2DI
        And those are just a few of the MANY videos where dems outright say they want to ban guns, and even all guns.
        Again you’re VERY ill informed., but then you’re evidently a liberal socialist, progressive marxist democrat , so it’s to be expected.

    15. they MUST be protected in an extraordinary fashion because they are so SUPERIOR to the remainder of us that we would not be able to function should something happen to one of our superiors. life would simply end…

      …or so their delusion goes.

      two realities of life, among others:

      -the only ones fearing a gun owner are those who would do the gun owner harm, and

      -only fools, knaves, jokers and ignoramuses deny this fact of history.

    16. Most people do not know that she was (is?) Willie Brown’s concubine. Willie was the power behind the Khalifornia democrats when he was the “crook in charge” of the state’s legislature. Willie would make the 90 mile drive from Sacramento to San Fran every Friday night to strengthen his political hold on the state. This went on for years and she was developed into his clone, sex excluded of course. Things in the state have not changed since the days of Edmund G Brown, Governor Moonbeam’s father, because the same group of thieves run the place. The activities in San Fran was a big sex party. Gavin Newsom was sleeping with his best friends wife, Willie doing Kamala, Gov Moonbean doing any guy he could but finally married a woman, Feinstein made a big deal about crying over Harvey (light in the loafers) Milk’s murder and was selected to go to the US Senate on the publicity of his murder. Yep KHALIFORNIA has not changed it is still as dirty as ever.

    17. David Codrea has it right! Kamala Harris and her fellow California elected leading gun grabbing crazys like Diane Finestin and Nancy Pelosi are trying bring firearm confiscate to the other 49 states. Don’t believe me just look at this link https://www.oag.ca.gov/firearms/certguns to the only handguns allowed for sale in the oppressive state of California. By the way the handguns listed as new are actually not new to the list, there just models that the manufacturer managed to get renewed in order to stay on the list. Manufacturers are required to apply for renewal or they can no longer offer that item in California going forward. Not a single new model has been approve as of 2013, but dozens have been removed. Only in California is a third generation Glock the newest and best auto one can buy. This is only one peace of Kamal’s handy work against the second amendment.

      If you don’t want California to control your states firearms laws, those in the other 49 need to help fight back now at the front lines of second amendments oppression. Even if you don’t live in Crazy Cali like me, I would recommend joining and contributing to organizations like CalGuns fighting this incidious infection coming from the left cost.

    18. Oh my, you called a black person a liar and a hypocrite. You will be branded a racist for sure now, even if it is the truth. That is how the Lamestream media operates.

    19. It’s all about power, influence and money. We had a political candidate here spend $75,000 to get a seat on the local airport authority which pays only $7,000 per year in salary. Why would she do that? To feed her ego and become (in her own mind) an elitist, to make contacts that will allow her to network with people throwing money around, and to position herself to receive money in the future. These elitists have their own personal agendas and that doesn’t include any concern for the common man/woman.

      1. @SEH, There is no profit in letting Americans be free. There is profit in controlling the people. This next election will be even more important than the last.

      2. Imo, this female is not only two faced, and I didn’t think given her statements that she’d want anyone armed near her “important” self!

    20. Give Her Security Detail Air Soft Guns !
      Then She’d Be in Step With Her Own Way
      of Thinking ! Plus 80% of the Wrong Targets ,
      Will Still Be Safe, To Vote Her Out !

    21. The opponents of gun rights come in four fundamental categories:

      Utopian Idealists – Dreamers willing to ignore human nature (anger, hostility, temper, greed, lust, hunger, poverty, want, megalomania, social pathologies, etc.) in the vain hope for a world where no one ever needs to defend themselves or others; Result: misguided efforts to disarm the public since no one should ever be capable of exerting lethal force for any reason. Fairly rare.

      Routine Bigots – Ignorant gun haters who, generally, have never actually seen a real gun much less fired one, and hate what they don’t know; strong corollaries with race haters; Result: Vigorous anti-rights profile if left alone, however they often resolve their blind hatred when education removes the ignorance — frequent anecdotes of such folks “converting” after their first time at a range. Quite common.

      Hoplophobes — Unfortunate souls afflicted with a phobic terror of firearms, deserving of pity, and in need of medical attention; Result: Though they should never be involved in setting policy on self-defense, national security, or Second Amendment rights, they often insinuate themselves into such positions, their need for treatment goes unattended, and they cause grievous social harm. Easily mistaken for plain bigots. Too common.

      Power Mongers – Like some at the U.N or many anti-gun-rights politicians, they know full well that an armed public interferes with their plans, and they insidiously use lies about the gun issue, and “disarmament (of you but not them) as a road to peace” as a power base and source of support; Result: truly evil, tyrants’ who ultimately suppress human rights, contribute to global genocides, live an elite lifestyle, care not for their fellow citizens. Rare but extremely dangerous.

      Example of the Sickness:

      “My own view on gun control is simple: I hate guns and I cannot imagine why anybody would want to own one. If I had my way, guns for sport would be registered, and all other guns would be banned.”
      –Deborah Prothrow-Stith, Harvard School of Public Health

      The right of decent private citizens to personally possess, transport, and responsibly use arms without government interference is the ultimate freedom and the main pillar supporting all other liberties. Few cultures have allowed their general population access to weapons, the tools of power, to the same degree as the United States. Instead, most societies have restricted the keeping and bearing of arms to a select few power brokers and their agents, often resulting in oppression on a grand scale.
      Despite a massive amount of historical evidence to the contrary, there is a substantial body of Americans, many occupying positions of influence, who contend that the abrogation of the Second Amendment is the quickest path to domestic tranquility. Since this is as absurd as advocating blood-letting as a cure for anemia, it would seem advisable to question the motives and mentalities of the gun control advocates themselves.
      In my observation, weapon prohibitionists can be broken down into seven major categories. Even though their motives may vary they all pose a mortal threat to liberty.

      ELITISTS
      Many of those in favor of oppressive firearms legislation are best classed as elitists. Elitists frequently identify with a peer group based on wealth, power, rank, social status, occupation, education, ethnic group, etc. and perceive themselves and their peers as inherently superior to and more responsible than the “common people”, thus more deserving of certain rights. Since elitists practically consider those outside their class or caste as members of another species, that most anti-elitist list of laws, the Bill of Rights is viewed by them as anathema. Naturally, the Second Amendment is their first target as it serves as the supporting structure for other nine amendments.

      AUTHORITARIANS
      Another type of individual who favors the restriction of private gun ownership is the authoritarian. Authoritarian personalities are characterized by their belief in unquestioning obedience to an authority figure or group and a disdain for individual freedom of action, expression, and judgement. Those with authoritarian personalities function well in symbiosis with elitists occupying positions of power. Because authoritarians repress their desires for autonomy they harbor a deep resentment toward free and independent thinkers. Of course, authoritarians do not want firearms in the hands of the general population as this constitutes a major obstacle to fulfilling their pathological and obsessive desire to control people.

      CRIMINALS
      It goes without saying that career criminals would like to see the public disarmed for obvious reasons. A well-armed population makes crimes such as assault, robbery, and burglary hazardous for the perpetrator and this is bad for “business.” Also, even non-violent or “white collar” criminals live in constant fear of retribution from the public that they financially bleed and would therefore prefer that the public be disarmed. Evidence supporting this hypothesis can be gathered by studying the Second Amendment voting records of those legislators who have been convicted of willful misconduct.

      THE FEARFUL
      Cowards are easily or excessively frightened by things and situations that are recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful. It therefore stands to reason that the mere thought of guns and the circumstances in which they are employed causes them abnormal amounts of stress. Rather than admit their weakness to themselves or others, some fearful types jump on the anti-gun bandwagon and purport moral superiority to those “barbaric” enough to employ lethal force against armed assailants by claiming various humanitarian and pragmatic motives for allowing evil to remain unchecked. Many of these individuals harbor an envy induced resentment toward anyone with the means, skill, and will to successfully stand up to criminal aggression.
      The desire to assert oneself exists in nearly everyone, wimps included, so cowards seek out tame enemies against whom they can ply their pitiful brand of machismo. Instead of the sociopaths who commit acts of wanton aggression with guns, guns themselves and responsible gun owners are the main targets of their attacks. After all, real criminals are dangerous, so cowards prefer doing battle with inanimate objects that do not have a will of their own and decent law-abiding people whose high level of integrity and self-discipline prevent them from physically lashing out against mere verbal assailants, however obnoxious they may be.

      IDEOLOGICAL CHAMELEONS
      Ideological chameleons follow the simple social strategy of avoiding controversy and confrontation by espousing the beliefs of the people in their immediate vicinity or advocating the philosophy of those who scream the loudest in a debate. Quite a few supposedly pro Second Amendment public officials have shown themselves to be ideological chameleons when they supported restrictions on the private possession of military style semiautomatic rifles following recent atrocities in which such firearms were employed. Like their reptilian namesake, people who merely blend in with the ambient philosophical foliage seem to have little insight into the moral and social ramifications of their actions. Political and/or economic gain along with avoidance of confrontation are their only goals.

      SECURITY MONOPOLISTS
      Security monopolists are those members and representatives of public and private security providing concerns who want the means of self-protection out of private hands so that they can command high fees for protecting the citizenry against the rising tide of crime. These profiteers stand to lose a great deal of capital if citizens can efficiently defend themselves. To the security monopolist, each criminal who enters and exits the revolving door of justice is a renewable source of revenue providing jobs for police, social workers, victim counsellors, judges, prison employees, security guards, burglar alarm installers, locksmiths, and others employed by the security monopolies or their satellite organizations. No wonder it is so common for an honest citizen to be more ruthlessly hounded by the authorities when he shoots a criminal in self-defense than a criminal who shoots honest citizens.

      THE DYSFUNCTIONALLY UNWORLDLY
      Just as a limb will weaken and atrophy if not used, so will aspects of the mind fail to develop if nothing in one’s environment exists to challenge them. People who have led excessively sheltered lives tend to have a difficult time understanding certain cause and effect relationships and an even harder time appreciating just how cruel the world can be. These dysfunction ally unworldly types are truly perplexed at the very notion of firearms ownership regarding defense. To them, tyranny and crime are things that happen in other places far removed from their “civilized” universe. Also, they do not understand the value of private property and why some people would fight for theirs since they never had to work hard to acquire what they possess. While those suffering from dysfunctional unworldliness are most often people who have been born into considerable wealth, this condition is also common in members of the clergy, academicians, practioners of the arts, and others who have spent much of their lives cloistered in a safe and pampering environment. While many of these people may be quite talented and intelligent in some ways, their extreme naivety makes them easy prey for the tyrants who use them for the financial support and favorable advertisement of their regimes. The anti-gun movement is well represented and financed by the dysfunction ally unworldly.
      The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, and it behooves all vigilant lovers of liberty to know and be able to recognize the various types of arms prohibitionists and understand their differing but equally dangerous motives. Acquiring knowledge of one’s foes is the first step toward defeating them. We must never forget that a threat to private firearms ownership is a threat to all freedoms.
      The inalienable and fundamental right to keep and bear arms which is enumerated by (but predates) the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is not about hunting, gun collecting, or target shooting. Its purpose is to ensure that every responsible American personally possesses the means to defend the Republic from all forms of tyranny, within and without. It is what permits the other nine Amendments in the Bill of Rights to be more than mere hollow phrases on a piece of paper. Its free exercise is the antithesis of serfdom and the only meaningful form of holocaust insurance known to man.
      We must never insult and degrade the spirits of our Founding Fathers by permitting the Second Amendment, the pillar of freedom, to be destroyed by the cold flame of legislative ink.

    22. This is what I have said all along, these nut jobs(Demo-Rats) have been doing this all they have armed security and we are to be disarmed and live under the normal police protection, about 30 minutes from a dispatch to get to your location! They live under a separate set of rules all around, and they will continue to do this as long as they have the mentality of we will do what we want, we are the privileged, and you will live by that! Take away all of their security and let them live the same as we do and just see who cries, kicks, and screams the loudest without any added protection when something happens! This is also why nothing hasn’t been done on School Security since Columbine in 1999, we have no gun zones and nothing else! We have the TSA after 9/11 in less than 30 days, but only No Gun Zones since 1999, but this falls on ALL OF THE POLITICIANS not just one party! WHAT IS THE PRICE OF A CHILDS LIFE????? Any politicians want to answer that?????

    23. Are these LEOs the same ones accused of slaughtering young black men as BLM chants daily and now Nike is displaying on national TV

    24. Where did Kamala Harris and her ideas come from? They certainly did NOT come from the US Constitution. It follows that since they did not come from the Constitution they must be UN-Constitutional. And, they really are. So, why do these folks on the left want such draconian anti-Constitutional laws to be in place? I think most of us know why. Because it’s really not about guns at all. It’s about power and influence. The left wasn’t us, you and I everyday law abiding folks to bow down before the all mighty government and worship them.That is wrong headed thinking on so many levels I cannot go into them here. She, and many others, are so caught up in this kind of thinking they can’t even see what the rest of see as plain as the noses on our faces. THIS is what the Founders warned us about. A government so out of control is does not and will not trust it’s own self. So we must put laws in place that nullify the second Amendment. As happybiker says above, Kamala Harris is incapable of normal thinking. and we elected her? We SHOULD come up with a law that prevents incapable thinkers from even becoming politicians! Just saying…..

      1. All these Democraps think they are the CEO of their own individual company. They have dismissed the fact that they work for We The People who pay their ridiclous salary and retirement. They push their own beliefs not the constitution, or anything for the greatness of this country.

      2. @Dr Reeder, From where? you ask. I believe that dear Kamala’s ideas come from the Communist Manefesto and from Rules for Radicles.

    25. Interesting that Harris supports sweeps to deprive people of constitutionally-protected right to bear arms, but she’s against the sweeps to pick up people who are illegal border-jumpers which is not a constitutionally-protected right.
