CSGV wants a "government monopoly on force." That cannot be achieved while we the people have any firearms. It may suit their purposes to hide parts of their sick, pro-tyranny agenda, but they will always be ready to lobby for whatever gun prohibition they think has a chance of being imposed on the once-free American people. And always ready to lie through their teeth.
Republicans continued to criticize President Obama and Senate Democrats on Monday for refusing to negotiate over the partial government shutdown that the House GOP instigated last week. And so far, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has also refused to entertain any of the rifle-shot continuing resolutions that Republicans have pushed through the House, which would have reopened such popular programs as the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the National Institutes of Health.

Oh--and he wants the entertainment industry to stop producing violent movies, music and video games. He says that Hollywood "should" do this, and doesn't mention any plans to compel such measures. That neatly avoids the problem he would otherwise have had with the First Amendment, but begs the question of why he expects the entertainment industry to do what he says they "should." If, after all, it were that easy, why not just say that violent thugs "should" stop shooting people, and cut off "gun violence" at its source?
But that, of course, will never do, because holding the perpetrators of "gun violence" 100 percent responsible for their evil would leave no blame to be transferred to guns, and would thus defeat the argument that you and I should have less access to the palladium of liberty. Perish the thought.
NEWBURYPORT — Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to showcase some of America’s greatest treasures.
Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country.
Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.
The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest.
This concern about "morale" at the BATFE is certainly late in coming, having never posed any obstacle to retaliation against whistleblowers (too many examples to catalog). Leadership also appears blissfully unconcerned about the morale of the families of hundreds of "nameless, faceless dead" in Mexico (or, for that matter, the family of "Gunwalker"-slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry).
In the end, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that in an agency that exists to violate the rights of citizens, the lower the morale, the better.
None of that, though, would fit in with CSGV's/Horwitz's fantasy of gun rights advocacy being motivated by "gun industry profit," rather than protection of the palladium of liberty. Poor CSGV--the truth continues to just not cooperate.
