And acting like a Ruler that issues decrees instead of a Servant-Leader, too:
NEW YORK — Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.
Schumer on Sunday released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium.
The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won’t help if more of them have recently been sold.
Well, does that mean we, the Citizens, should stop using money, as you chuckheads in DC are “discussing” our $16 Trillion national debt ceiling (100% of our national GDP, btw, but you guys don’t seem to be counting) – which should alert you that we, THE NATION, have no money to spend?
Here’s a couple of observations for ya, Chuckie (giving respect in proportion to that which is due to this idea):
- Have you a clue that WITH massive demand for firearms, the Citizens are telling you that you are wrong for limiting lawful Citizens’ purchase of them?
- Have you a clue that perhaps local communities and States (yo, Chuckie, remember that fanciful idea called Federalism that worked so well for centuries until Progressives wanted to nationalize the States by bribing them) should take care of the firearms issue instead of you?
- Have you a clue that since you “best & brightest” can’t manage the debt (much less in, you know, passing a real Federal budget?), maybe you should concentrate on what SHOULD be your primary responsibility?
- And you still haven’t answered the WHY? of why the private sector pass up profit now for no profit later?
And WHY is it the duty of the private sector (and the little of private Society that you folks haven’t assimilated into Govt) to exist to serve YOUR wishes? When did we reach that tipping point that now you can brazenly say “You all need to make my life easier”? I can remember when it was the other way around.
Simply self-absorbed, that Progressive one.
