Buffalo Provides Real-Time Example of Insane ‘Progressive’ War on Guns

Readily available for photo ops at stores during non-emergencies, when looters ran wild during the recent blizzard, Buffalo cops were needed elsewhere responding to more critical demands. Meanwhile, their anti-gun boss is focused on attacking legal gun sellers and manufacturers. (Mayor Byron W. Brown/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Deadly blizzard conditions in upstate New York gave cover to local looters over the weekend as they robbed businesses while police were stuck elsewhere,” the New York Post reports. Mayor Byron Brown says he’s “astounded.”

“I don’t know how these people can even live with themselves, how they can look at themselves in the mirror,” he complained to the media. “They are the ‘lowest of the low.”’

“They’re not looting foods and medicines, they’re just looting items that they want. So these aren’t even people in distress,” Brown complained. “These are people who are taking advantage of a national disaster and the suffering of many in our community to take what they want.”

Nothing says “social justice,” like victimizing the helpless while plundering retail merchandise. Does it occur to them that if they take something of value from someone who has earned it, they have effectively enslaved him for the amount of time that it took him? Probably not, but if it did, do you think they’d care?

And talk about updating the old adage that “When seconds count, the police are minutes away.”

When seconds count, the police are nowhere to be found and won’t be. That’s always the case, especially in times of widespread emergency, when civil authority is concentrated and triaging to where directed, and everybody else is left on their own. In this case, with people dying, there’s no question police were desperately needed elsewhere. But it’s in these times of disaster when people left to protect themselves are most justified in doing just that against predators.

You don’t know what a lawless mob brazen enough to loot with impunity, with the implied threat that anyone who tries to stop them will be dealt with physically, will do should they perceive that you are keeping them from what they want. That threat is terrifying and real. Yet imagine who would be on trial if one or more of the hapless victims did what was both necessary and just.

Sorry. The people who invite violent anarchy tell us, “You loot, we shoot” is racist.

People like Mayor Brown, who has enrolled Buffalo as a member of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Guns… (I left out “Illegal,” because it’s redundant. If these local tyrants had their way, they all would be everywhere, in Everytown.)

He’s the one leading a “first of its kind’ lawsuit against … manufacturers, distributors, and other local gun shops.”:

“‘Members of our community have suffered too much and for too long from gun violence. We must do everything we can to decrease gun violence. Enabling the possession of illegal guns destroys lives and deeply effects [sic] our neighborhoods, especially in Black and Brown communities,’ said Brown.”

It’s hardly a “first of its kind.” It’s why the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was passed. As with all things “progressive,” it’s a recycled bad idea intended to solidify a totalitarian violence monopoly and further swindle citizens out of their rights

Which population is it in Buffalo that overwhelmingly possesses those “illegal guns”? Who is it who most needs protection from them? And how does making it more difficult (and expensive!) to legally own and carry them do anything but guarantee more victims in those communities?

Don’t bother asking the “astounded” Brown. He not only doesn’t have any answers, but his entire power shtick also depends on keeping anyone ignorant enough to vote for him from even considering such questions.

And in the meantime, they’d better pray they don’t need to call anyone for help at the time when they most need it.

Think about that little yapping milk-dud NYC mayor – he ran off to some Caribbean Island vacation spot and didn’t poke his little gopher head up until the storm was over. These low life cowards should be shouted down every time they try to show up somewhere and speak in public. Think about the fantastic black mayors in this country – Adams, NYC, Turner in Houston, Lightfoot in Chicago, London Breed, SF, LaToya Cantrell, New Orleans, Muriel Bowser, DC – and until recently, Keisha Lance-Bottoms, Atlanta. Every single one of those towns are complete and total Shite-Holes.

“MILK DUD”…….love it. Gone borrow it.

Buffalo Provides Real-Time Example of Insane ‘Progressive’ War on Constitutional Rights. There fixed the Headline

KenW

The Constitution doesn’t grant us these “Rights” it only codifies them.

Arny

The Constitution grants you these rights they day you’re born on US soil. It’s up to the citizens, to ensure they are retained.

Raconteur

Perhaps you can quote those parts/sections that say the Constitution grants us rights? All I’ve ever read, always says that the government is forbidden the power to infringe on our rights. Not that the government pays any attention to the Constitution, unless it gets forced to.

Arny

Guaranteed would be a better word to use as to grant. But then we could play word games all day. If we want to go that route. Grants you the right to a fair & speedy trial. The Constitution grants the federal government certain powers, and the Tenth Amendment reminds us that any powers not granted to the federal government “are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”.

hippybiker

Enumeration is the proper term!

Coelacanth

“Affirms” our rights.

Finnky

Actually, constitution just reiterates rights inherent to every human being. Instructions therein are to government, guiding whoever is in charge at the moment to recognize our rights and treat us appropriately.

Problem is other countries where they’ve allowed their government to strip them of individual rights.

Arny

That way of thinking is exactly why we have open borders & wars we should not be in. That is the United Nations way of thinking. The Constitution was written for the USA no one else. Now if other countries decide to adopt our way of thinking that’s all fine & dandy. Spreading Democracy. lol

Wrong. The founders and framers knew that we had inate, inalienable rights. Those rights are similar to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: food, shelter, safety (i.e. guns).

The constitution was not written to give us rights. If something is your right, how can it be given to you, or how can it be morally taken away?

The constitution only acknowledges these rights to make sure future “leaders” can’t steal your inate rights without consequences.

Arny

How’s that working out ?

StLPro2A

Rights not implemented and defended aggressively are rights not held. Americans have acquiesced their rights away to the tyrants elected to do so. It hurts every time I reflect on veterans signing on that proverbial blank check dotted line, leave their loved ones, train, kit up, go into harm’s way on foreign soil to protect our rights/freedoms/liberties, only to come home to have those very right/freedoms/liberties taken away by politicians on home siol with nary a shot fired in defense. Why go into harm’s way if unarmed enemies disguised as politicians are allowed to accomplish the same end point as… Read more »

We need to sh!t or get off the Pot.

Quick! Somebody turn on the Rooftop Korean Signal!

OlTrailDog

Ha! Same thought as I posted later, before I saw your comment. My wife was a Korean immigrant. We had many Korean friends in our small city. The “Irish of the Orient” as some have coined them.

Rodoeo

Yeah they don’t play that

WeWereWarned

Buffalo, had Icy Road Arabs invoking the 2nd Amendment to use force to defend their property, and trump the city and state laws that make self defense and defense of property illegal.
Funny how all of the looters and even the camera man, who was enjoying his kind looting, started to run when the Arab business owner defended his property and committed aggravated assault or attempted murder according to the state laws.
The 2nd Amendment is for the protection of the Citizen, who doesn’t profit through money or power over the existence of living criminals, like the state does.

Buffalo is just another liberal run shithole!

Democrat narrative, people in dire need peacefully and lawfully shopping in Buffalo New York. FJB and all Democrats

They’re not looting foods and medicines, they’re just looting items that they want. ” OMG, REALLY!! I never knew.

Rodoeo

Can you imagine?? I’ve lost all faith in humanity LOL

Jonesy

Would I be correct in assuming that Mayor Brown is a Dumb Ass Democrat like the one that was over Heels Up Harris.

Matt in Oklahoma

Oh well they wanted it and now they got it

Government wants a monopoly on violence and therefore on guns. Government fears the citizens that gave it power will also take it away, so those within government seek to disarm the citizens. The corrupt and arrogant power hungry bureaucrats want crime, so people will stupidly beg the government for help… help which will never arrive, except in the form of bills that disarm the general public but not the criminals, so more and more gun bans can follow, until only criminals and the government have guns. But, I repeat myself.

nrringlee

One man sows. One man waters. One man reaps. This Biblical principle applies to this particular instance of government enabled riot because for over five decades the Progressive New Left has worked to dismantle the ethical and spiritual foundation of our nation. They have simultaneously conspired to disarm the law abiding, the true first responders in any free society and have crafted law to render self-defense moot. They have water their failed public policy prescriptions and now we are reaping the rewards: riots characterized as normal behavior and normal, natural law dictated behavior like self defense is now characterized as… Read more »

Rodoeo

Can you imagine?? Criminals committing crimes and they’re not even in distress?? Wow, this Buffalo, NY place must have been some kind of crime free utopia. Just wait until thousands of 3rd world immigrants arrive. Better beef up that police force.

OlTrailDog

Come on man, this wasn’t thievery, this was only social plundering.

“…especially in Black and Brown communities,’ said Brown.”. Maybe we just need more Koreans, aka “Yellow BIPOCs” to exercise their guts and God given right to defend their property and livelihood, LA style.

KK

I’m SO sick of this $HIT! We can’t speak of reality, we must deal with problems according to the progressive/socialist democrat alternate reality propaganda narrative. “‘Members of our community have suffered too much and for too long from gun violence. We must do everything we can to decrease gun violence. Enabling the possession of illegal guns destroys lives and deeply effects [sic] our neighborhoods, especially in Black and Brown communities,’ said Brown.” WE DON’T HAVE A GUN PROBLEM – WE HAVE A BLACK CRIME AND VIOLENCE PROBLEM! “Which population is it in Buffalo that overwhelmingly possesses those “illegal guns”?

USMC0351Grunt

Okay point well taken! I never realized that there would be any kind of a need to segregate or put into groups all of the illegals that are entering our country however,, I will petition our Texas governor Greg Abbott to send the Venezuelan thugs that the prisons are releasing and the liberal left wing nuts are allowing into our country, over to “Mayor Milk Dud”! At least that way they will know what they’re getting!

Big George

I kept waiting to read that the Cops couldn’t respond to snow emergencies but were able to arrest the kid for buying a cap gun!

Forgetmenot

Most of the Walmart looting pictures were from another store at another time. Not the Buffalo store during the storm.

Patriot Solutions

We vote correctly in my county and keep only a couple Leo’s in uniform for just part of the 24 hr cycle so FAFO there is nobody to save the criminals here.
