Hat/Tip to Rare and American Thinker.

Watch this soldier-cop blow away gun grabbers’ arguments

After the horrible school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, the New York State Legislature passed the “NY Safe Act.” American Thinker calls this law “the rape” of the 2nd Amendment.

NYSafeActThe SAFE Act is far worse than you might imagine. Harold “Budd” Schroeder, member of the NRA Board of Directors from New York, described teh law as “the rape of our gun rights.” That is no exaggeration. The law is as harsh as (or harsher than) the gun laws of some European nations that do not have a Bill of Rights or a Second Amendment.

The most widely reported provision of the law is the total ban on the sale of military-style rifles classified as “assault weapons,” effective Jan. 15. The provision forever prohibits anyone other than a law enforcement agency from acquiring such weapons, including the popular hunting and target variants of the AR-15 rifle. Current owners of such rifles must register when with the state by 2014, and the registration must be renewed every five years. This gives the state a list of persons from which to confiscate them in the future, and the five-year renewal provision gives the state an excuses to find ways to deny ownership once every five years. Current owners of such rifles may never sell them to another New York State resident in the future.

 

But one former US Soldier and current Police Officer, Aaron Weiss blasted all legislatures associated with the cowardly way this law was passed.

Here is a full transcript of Aaron’s excellent speech.

Hello. My name is Aaron Weiss and I live in the town of Poughkeepsie. I am a combat veteran of Iraq and I am also a law enforcement officer. I attended the Public Safety Committee’s last meeting in regard to this last resolution but I didn’t say anything because I wanted to hear what everyone else had to say.

And I heard some shocking things from some people and some legislators. They said that it took a lot of courage to pass The Safe Act. Apparently, my definition of courage differs from yours. You see, if it was really so courageous a bill, and it took so much courage to pass it, then why was it done in the middle of the night when no one could see it or read it? That’s not courage. That’s a mafia style sit-down to divvy up what’s good for the bosses.

Courage is taking the right and true course of action, not the politically expedient one. And, anyone who is proud of this law must also be proud of the patriot act, the TSA, imprisoning Japanese citizens in World War II since all these actions were spurred on by emotional fear and rammed through in the name of public safety.

Another issue is the insistence of certain people to stand on the graves of dead children and challenge those that disagree to say it to the parents’ faces. Well, I, for one, will pick up that gauntlet. First off, why is “dead children” your battle cry? You didn’t say anything about the hundreds of Chicago children being killed and for some reason you only screamed when it happens to wealthy white ones. And yes, I’ll say to anyone’s face, my right is more important than your dead, because I fought for it first hand.

I washed the blood of my friends out of my humvee and I picked up their mangled bodies and I fought day in and day out. I did more things than people can imagine. So, yeah, my right trumps your dead. I earned it in blood. I gave up a lot for this country, including my youth, and better men than me gave up a whole lot more so that all of you, myself included can enjoy the rights that are guaranteed to us in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We didn’t go through all of that to come back home and watch you surrender what we fought for happen based on the demented actions of a couple of mad men.

So, in closing, I would like to address specifically the legislators we all know who are going to vote against this resolution. I understand you all vote against this resolution based on some misguided sense of the public good. However, as a law enforcement officer I am curious to know about your true resolve.

Since voting to takeaway someone’s rights is totally different than being asked to enforce it, I want you to consider this. If you support The Safe Act so whole heartedly, are you willing to stand with the law enforcement members who lead from the front to enforcement? What I mean by that is if a constituent of yours feels so alienated by this law and the manner in which it was passed and they refuse to comply with it, are you willing to stack up on their front door and go in first? I bet if a clause was in this bill that required you, the elected leadership, our elected leaders to go in the door first, I bet you would not be so steadfast.

As we all know, regressives hate gun rights.   It interferes with their ability to dominate the public. So, anything that glorifies, or even affirms gun ownership is evil.  So, fully knowing that the following video will terribly offend gun grabbing regressives, I proudly present the following…

Liberty Needs More Doers and Fewer Watchers

Share

My father always told me there are two types of people in this world; doers and watchers.  Even the revolutionary war had its share of doers and watchers.  The doers were the Patriots and Tories.  These people encompassed colonists who kicked in by fighting either for independence or for the King.  Some of the most brutal and bloodiest battles of the war were fought between Patriots and Tories.  They made up roughly 2/3 of the colonial population.  The final 1/3 was made up people who either didn’t care which side won or who desired independence but really didn’t want to invest in the overall effort to achieve it.  They offered up plenty of verbal noise but beyond that they were looking for the doers on the Patriot side to get the job done.  Lately I have been seeing this same watcher attitude in regards to local politics when it comes to getting involved and investing in the time it takes to make a difference.

These last few weeks I’ve been light in my posting because I’ve been investing a considerable amount of time towards local politics and the gun rights issue.  I’ve been talking to people about the issue.  I’ve been contacting my local representatives and expressing my concerns about federal regulations in regards to gun rights.  And I’ve been trying to prompt my fellow neighbors to do the same.  The problem is even though a large number of them are for gun rights and staunchly support the 2nd amendment they just don’t want to invest the time and energy it takes to shake the pillars of the republic.  They want me to do it and then keep them informed.  And this is a problem.

I don’t believe this is an apathy problem.  I believe that some people are just more comfortable watching the game then actually suiting up and getting into the game, even if the outcome of the game has dire consequences.  Even when their liberties are on the line, they choose to let the doers pick up the cause and run with it for them.  It’s irresponsible as a citizen and further erodes a system that relies on the consent of the people to work.  When people say or do nothing when the government wrongs them or takes away their liberties then the people are giving their consent to allow it to happen.  Bill O’Reilly touches on this watcher mindset in America in our featured video of the week.  Please take a few moments to check it out.

I don’t normally say this but Mr. O’Reilly hit it out of the park in his talking points.  We get the government we deserve and right now America deserves Barack Obama and his radical left agenda.  Jim over at Asylum Watch states the following in his article Conservatives on Fire has Evolved; “After the devastating results of the 2012 elections, many conservative bloggers went silent and others began posting less frequently.”  That is absolutely a true statement.  I know that after we lost the election I myself was not only stunned by the results, but I was forced to reevaluate my own purpose and strategy.  But a shift in purpose and strategy doesn’t mean we give up the fight for the cause of liberty and freedom.  It only means we rethink how we do it.  My path led me to getting more involved at the local level and that’s what I’ve done.  But it will all be for not if we can’t transform more watchers into doers.  Because a few is simply not enough to have a major impact.  As misguided as their policies are, the left has been so successful these last few years because they have a large number of doers getting it done for them.

When I look back on the 2012 election in North Dakota, I now see how Republican Rick Berg lost in a very red state to Democrat Heidi Heitkamp.  My door was knocked on twice asking me if I would support Heidi Heitkamp.  Not once did I see anyone pounding the ground for Rick Berg.  Heidi Heitkamp had no business winning the state.  She openly supported Obamacare in a state that overwhelmingly rejected it.  She was a second rate candidate who hid her liberal beliefs by running as a moderate.  Additionally she was one of those candidates who always seemed like she was running for something but could never win.  When I heard she was running for the open seat being vacated by Kent Conrad, I joked here comes Heidi again.  The difference maker this time around was she had more doers pushing for a win than Rick Berg and that’s why this is an important issue.

The left has figured out the formula to win elections.  It’s not complex.  Get the doers to carry the load and the candidates across the finish line.  And this is exactly what they did in 2012 and it worked.  This is what the Tea Party movement did in 2010 and it worked.  If we hope to advance the cause of liberty we need more doers and fewer watchers.  If this means we need to shame the watchers into action then so be it.  If a liberal like Heidi Heitkamp can win in a deeply red state like North Dakota, then surely we can find a way to advance the conservative agenda in Red/Purple states.  It just takes more doers and fewer watchers.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!
