Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “‘It was a mistake,’ you said. Yet, the cruelty is: It felt as if the mistake was mine, for trusting you.” ~ David Levithan
In CA, where Democrat politicians apparently can’t distinguish a “bullet” from a “cartridge,” a whole new layer of ammunition restrictions upon sales of ammunition are in the works.
California leftists are reminiscent of ancient Mayan priests who, fearing lunar eclipses, tossed severed heads of unlucky citizens from bloody sacrificial altars on-high to waiting crowds of chanting, swaying, devotees below.
Lunar eclipses came anyway, and the predictable cry from the priestly class, concerned about keeping their cushy jobs, was of course,
“We didn’t go far enough! We didn’t sever enough heads!”
Similarly, Democrat politicians know and understand that none of the restrictions they’ve already imposed on hapless citizens, nor any of those they’re currently implementing, will reduce violent crime. In fact, violent crime is steadily increasing in CA and has been for the past five decades.
It is increasing because that is exactly what leftist politicians want. They know only too well,
“The more crime you have, the more government you need!”
They’re banking on it, and their “dirty little secret” is of course, that all these new and onerous assailments on individual rights and freedoms are cynically designed to fail!
They know full well they’re going to fail!
They want them to fail!
Because when they fail, which they always do, counting on citizens’ short memories, Democrats will call for a whole new round of corrosive assaults on individual rights, predictably chanting,
“We didn’t go far enough!”
I wonder if it occurs to average CA citizens how curious it is that they are expected to fully support their own disarmament, while Democrat politicians not only remain armed, but become increasingly better armed (at taxpayer expense) will all the guns, magazines, and ammunition “ordinary” citizens can’t even touch!
If gun prohibition is such a good idea, why don’t its ardent proponents start with themselves? Why do leftist politicians, without fail, exempt themselves from their own laws?
Only leftists are worthy of such hypocritical treachery, and betrayal!

Thank you for the insult! I have lived all my life in the true Northern California, Not the socialist bay area cities and Sacramento. The State of Jefferson movement was interrupted by WWII and the patriotism of our citizens. Many in the rural areas resent the domination by the densely populated cities and self serving politicians. To my fellow Californians, BEWARE of the current move to split the state into three! The proposed boundaries of each state would include major metropolitan areas that would still dominate over the rural counties. Instead of two leftist senators in congress there could be… Read more »
GEE, Kind of sounds like COMMUNIST N.Y. State where I reside. I am up “NORTH” Not far from the Canada border, and all OUR rights are being slowly REMOVED by the “ELITE” city dweller “representatives’ in Albany and N.Y. city.
We “rural people” are always OUTVOTED by the major cities, so basically we have no “SAY”.
We DO need to split the state in two, or expect to be under the thumbs of big city corrupt LIBERAL DEMOCOMMUNISTS.
Sounds pretty much like Washington state as well. We who live east of the Cascades are a minority whenever something needs voting on. The rich elite leftists all live in the Seattle/Tacoma metro area, and they control the state’s politics. Guys like Bill Gates and Paul Allen, even with all their money, brought in extra funding from Bloomburg’s anti-gun people to pass gun restrictions in the last election. I am surprised that they haven’t been able to pass a state income tax, that they yearn for. That is one reason why I refuse to vote for Lisa Brown this year.… Read more »

WHY on earth do you cite such a suspect source? The biblical definition of hypocrite is one who says one thing and does another, does a thing for perverse/false reasons, abides by “one rule for thee a different rule for me” meme, and/or imposes ridiculous restrictions and requirements of their own making upon others. and making a… Read more »

@ Tionico Very good post with clear facts.
Tioniico, AMEN and AMEN.
How can one tell when a demonrat is lying? His pie hole is open and crap is flowing out of it!
If a DEMOCRAT said it it is probably a lie. If a California DEMOCRAT said it, you are sure it is a lie and the politician was paid to say it because a California DEMOCRAT does not have the intelligence to have an unpaid thought.
