Carolyn McCarthy is all of a sudden concerned about state rights.

My question to her: Where was the concern for states rights during the 2004 Assault Weapons Ban that you campaigned so hard for? If a state has the "right" to determine who can and can't legally carry a concealed firearm, then don't they also have the right to determine who can and can't own an "assault weapon" or a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition?

Shooting in Brooklyn reveals a couple of problems.


via the New York Post:
A pregnant 34-year-old Brooklyn woman walking home with her child from school was fatally shot as she bravely shielded hers and other children when gunfire erupted on a Brownsville street today.
Bullets also struck an 11-year-old girl and a 31-year-old woman who was walking out of P.S./I.S. 298 with her own kids right after dismissal at about 2:35 p.m., authorities said.

1. The most obvious problem is that New York's strong gun laws and New York City's even stronger gun laws did not work. Licensing, registration, magazine limits, extraneous background checks... They all failed.

2. New York City's defacto prohibition on carrying firearms for self-defense ensured that the shooter had a target rich environment. The New York City government did their best to make sure that there was absolutely no chance that anyone could fire back and in turn force him to abandon his "mission".

3. Gangs are the problem, not people who go through the process of getting vetted and licensed to carry a gun, Mr. Schneiderman.

The first success of CA's open carry ban.

Thanks to CA's open carry ban, "untrained, unscreened, self-appointed vigilantes" can no longer carry guns. Only criminals can openly carry guns. Thank you, Dallas Stout, president of the California chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Congrats California for banning open carry.

You've made yourself a safer state.

Thanks to Gov. Moonbeam, street urchins such as the below are free to beat up people at their leisure without the fear of having their feelings hurt by seeing an openly carried gun.
