Schumer. What can we say about this schmuck? Perhaps the highest praise we
could heap on him is that he could make a Nazi proud!
Schumer is one of the leading lights in the misbegotten and misguided gun-control
movement. His antigun stance might be thought very odd, considering the fact
that he's Jewish. After all, the prelude to slaughter of 6 million Jews during
the Holocaust was Hitler's disarming of the Jews... rendering the People helpless
before their own government. In much the same way, Schumer seeks to disarm
the People of America. Ironically, Hitler reportedly disarmed the People "for
their own safety" - just as Schumer seeks to do.
Is Schumer an evil agent of the Fourth Reich? Or just stupid and misguided?
Consider his reaction to the announcement of "Black Rhino"1
ammunition. This was a bullet which its manufacturer claimed could penetrate
a bulletproof vest and then explode inside the body behind the vest. Schumer
immediately went on television announcing proposed legislation to ban this
"dangerous" ammunition which could "penetrate body armor and
leave grenade-like wounds." The only problem was, the Black Rhino bullet
was a complete hoax. Worse, Schumer was apparently a willing participant
in the hoax. What kind of representative has to lie to the People
to get them to support his positions?
I tried to find out by looking at Schumer's
web site. What I discovered was that if it weren't for his rabid antigun
stance, Schumer might be reduced to complaining about gasoline prices. (Ironic,
since he did vote for the highest gasoline tax hike in history, didn't he?)
According to Schumer's
web site Attorney General Janet Reno, the enforcer of Waco, the person
who doesn't see a need to investigate Algore (despite recommendations by top
attorneys on her own staff), the beast who sent thugs in to gas men, women
and little children (with levels of gas never experienced by any human being
in history) - the same authoritarian bureaucrat who ordered a little boy snatched
from his relatives at machine-gun point in Miami, said, "I have never met
a public official more dedicated to fighting crime than Mr. Schumer." [Reno
is herself a candidate for "Dope of the Day."]
To demonstrate that Schumer is as dishonest today as he was in the days of
the Black Rhino Hoax, turn to his latest bit of propaganda. It's a "study"
he commissioned (with your tax dollars) entitled: "War
Between the States." This "study" concludes that "New
York is one of the nation's leading "victim" states because 1,685
guns from local crimes originated from Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and
Virginia while only 61 guns used by criminals in those 5 Southeastern states
were originally sold in New York." This might sound impressive at first
blush, but the argument completely falls apart due to several obvious realities.
- Criminals by their very nature do what's easiest. That doesn't
mean that if laws are more strict, that criminals won't get guns. It just
means they will get them from somewhere else. Imagine if New York had strict
drug laws but Florida had none. Naturally people would obtain illegal drugs
from Florida. What if all states had strict anti-drug laws? Then, using
Schumer's reasoning, it would be impossible to get illegal drugs... right?
Well, we have strict drug laws in all states today - So why isn't New York
drug free? (Because Schumer is lying, that's why!)
- Guns don't cause crime. Think about it. If Schumer is right
that the free and easy access to guns causes crime, then states with
free access to guns should have much higher crime rates than New York. Unfortunately
for Schumer, this simply isn't true. Texas and Florida, cited as major sources
of guns used in New York crime, both have lower crime rates than
New York. Think about what Schumer is saying. Criminals don't have enough
targets in Texas or Florida, so they are taking their guns to New York to
pick on the ehlpless citizens there... or perhaps Schumer is just pointing
out that when you create a black market in firearms
there is enough economic pressure to cause their importation form
And just what is Schumer trying to prove with his numbers? If it turned
out that 60% of the illegal guns used in crime were from out of state, and
that 66% of the perpetrators were black, would Schumer propose laws banning
blacks? (Maybe we better not suggest this to Schumer... after all, the first
gun control laws passed in this country were designed to make sure
the freed blacks could not defend themselves from the KKK and Schumer already
wants to bring back strict gun control. Maybe whipping slaves is the next
stop on his totalitarian express?) The point is, a correlation does
not demonstrate cause and effect. Nobody seriously believes
that banning guns will mean that criminals won't be able to get guns. Schumer
is lying... again.
- The illegal drug trade is part of the problem. Schumer's "study"
doesn't say from whom the illegal guns were recovered, but I'd lay odds
that a large percentage of them were in the possession of drug dealers.
That's right - the drug pipeline that comes in through Texas and Florida
and passes through Mississippi and Georgia just might sweep guns along with
the drugs. Since the path of crime starts in Texas and Florida with the
transshipment of drugs, why would criminals make the effort to go to New
York, obtain guns, travel back to Texas or Florida, get the drugs, and return
to New York? If nothing else, the guns are probably cheaper in the South!
To make his half-baked analysis work, Schumer wants us to forget what every
mom knows about shopping at the supermarket - you plan in such a way that
you don't have to make extra trips. So, Schumer is still lying.
- Vermont. The most telling argument against Schumer's latest
hoax, is the fact that he hasn't been recording record surges of guns
coming in from VERMONT! After all, in Vermont, citizens don't even need
a permit to carry a gun - openly or concealed. There's no state registration,
no waiting period... and very little crime. To use Schumer's logic, guns
should be flooding in from Vermont, which is a lot closer to New York than
Florida or Texas. But Vermont doesn't happen to be on the heroin highway.
Of course, the influence of the illegal drug trade isn't even mentioned
in Schumer's "study." I didn't see Vermont mentioned either. Or
Wyoming, which has very free gun laws (and consequently should be hip deep
in armed criminals.) Why do you suppose that Mr. Schumer's report doesn't
mention these states? Could it be because they have large numbers of firearms
in the hands of citizens, few gun laws of any kind - and very little crime?
So, getting back to the original questions: Is Schumer stupid? Misguided?
Is he evil? Deceitful? Dishonest? Is he a closet Nazi? Does he want to disarm
the Negroes and turn them back into slaves? Is he just itching for the next
Does it really matter?
Schumer is a liar. He would rather his constituents be disarmed sheep than
empowered citizens. Perhaps the most amazing fact is that "sophisticated"
New Yorkers either like being helpless sheep or are so damned stupid
that they can't figure what most of the country can plainly see - Schumer
is a con man!
