When the insulated, aloof, arrogant, and wealthy elitists establish rules, regulations, and laws which apply only to the hoi polloi and not themselves, we begin to understand what those words in the Constitution mean . . . “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
And THAT, mes amis, is precisely what that annoying 2nd Amendment is all about. Of course there’s still the very real problem of doing something about the Schumers and the Bloombergs and the Feinsteins when you realize that an ounce of pure hypocrisy is stronger than a trainload of good intentions.
I’m so sick of all this bull shit I’m going to just go give a pint of blood. Yup!! that’s what I’m going to do!!!

But … but … eliiite !
Most people are unaware that this Prog jackassery is the basis of the phrase “All men are created equal.” Just listen to any discussion where it pops up. Most argument is about what “equal” mans, and the stated opinions are almost always wrong. Any interpretation in modern, literal terms results in nonsense.
Basically, “all men are created equal” is a rejection of hereditary aristocratic or ruling-class legal privilege and differential treatment under the law.
In America, there should be no distinction between Bloomberg and you when it comes to the applicability of the law.
Progs just hate being reminded that they’re equal to proles.
(What? Yeah, mebbe it’s the other way around.)

I’m afraid I don’t get the question… Isn’t Brown Shirt two words?
Oh, my bad, the word is in German, as in Gestapo? Do I win?
And just what jurisdiction does an NYPD officer have in DC, and was he armed?
And why can’t Mattera walk down that sidewalk unobstructed?
Lordy these assholes piss me off. They need a huge comeuppance, a big plate of crow, and a humble pie.
It would serve Mikey right if his chauffeur beat him up; no manufactured weapons, just fists.

Bullies with an entourage are on the top of my list of people that need to be banished to a deserted island with one knife and a gallon water.
