Failure

TZP recently received a link to a story of victim disarmers in Rhode Island.

Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict guns
This legislative session was no better than the previous two in terms of legislation passed to increase gun safety and reduce gun violence. But the tide seems to be turning in efforts to break the stranglehold the National Rifle Association has over our legislature: The Rhode Island Coalition against Gun Violence commissioned a poll this session that showed that a high percentage of Rhode Islanders agreed with the legislation it supported.

The initially horrifying aspect of that screed is that it appears in The Jewish Voice. I will never understand the concept of Jews clamoring for their own disarmament

Yet some do. Our correspondent noted when sending the link:

There’s currently a push behind the scenes at the RI State Capitol by Liberal Progressives in the RI Jewish community (JCC and JCRC) speaking out against gun violence and going after pro-Second Amendment politicians in RI. Certain Rabbis in some Jewish Congregations are even encouraging members to sign “common sense gun legislation,” and anti-Second Amendment pledges to send to their respective RI State Representatives. They’re trying to either force Reps. to change their stance on gun control or vote them out of office.

In the wake of Heller, McDonald, not to mention the Holocaust, fools Like David H. Leach whine that legislators have “failed” to violate an enumerated right of defense. What other rights are TJC and Leach hoping to see violated? Will we see headlines like these?

  • I. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict the Press
    Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict Jews
  • III. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict homeowners
  • IV. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict probable cause
  • V. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict due process
  • VI. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to endlessly delay trials
  • VII. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict trial by jury
  • VIII> Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to eliminate bail
  • IX.Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict unenumerated rights
  • X. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to seize powers from the people

-sigh- Sadly, I’ve seen far too many headlines that pretty much do that. But I digress.

The goods news is that The Zelman Partisans aren’t the only Jews and fellow travelers who do get it. Our correspondent continues:

My friends (pro Second Amendment, pro Constitution Jews) and I will be organizing a “push back” beginning in September. Any help you could provide will be helpful and greatly appreciated.

TZP is preparing to support them in their effort. If you are in Rhode Island, or the region, please do your part locally. Contact Representatives and Senators, pro and con RKBA. Let the ones who protect our rights know you have their backs. Let the victiom disarming scum know you’re watching and will fight their disgusting efforts.

Don’t let the Bagel-brains destroy our rights.

  1. So they commissioned a poll? so what. If we lived by polls around these parts WWE would free 24/7 on every channel and Krispy Kreme would be required to deliver fresh and hot to every doorstep in the county. Dumbocracy.
