PERRY: We can only save ourselves from kidnappers at the NRA

I’m talking about the real terrorist threat here in America: the National Rifle Association

I have seen the light. After all these years, I now agree that it’s fruitless to give the benefit of the doubt to people who are so obviously corrupt, so clearly malevolent, so bent on hurting innocent people for their own sick gain.

ForPerryNo more due process in the clear-cut case of insidious terrorism. When the facts are so clearly before all Americans, for the whole world to see, why bother with this country’s odious and cumbersome system of justice? Send the guilty monsters directly to Guantanamo Bay for all eternity and let them rot in their own mental squalor.

No, no, no. Not the wannabe sick kid who blew up the Boston marathon or the freak that’s mailing ricin-laced letters to the president. I’m talking about the real terrorist threat here in America: the National Rifle Association.

I’m not laughing. What the NRA did last week was no laughing matter. Aurora is a community that knows only too well the downside of prolific guns, of military weapons in the hands of crazy people, of a nation that’s gone so far off base when it comes to firearm regulations that common sense is beyond our reach.

If you don’t read the thousands of newspapers in this country that came out with their own editorial guns a’blazing last week after a minority of craven, lying, sniveling, cowardly U.S. senators cheated the very premise of American government to back their masters at the NRA, let me offer you a few choice excerpts:

“But now, the cowards defied the will of most Americans and helped the hardliners and hypocrites prevail. They allowed themselves to be cowed into submission by a loud but very unrepresentative minority of NRA members who threatened retribution against anyone who voted in favor of the bill.”

Just another liberal rag in a liberal wasteland toeing the liberal line? No, that was the Dallas Morning News.

“It would be shameful, except too many of our politicians have no shame. Again, the gun bill showed that … Nobody wants the mentally ill having a gun. Nobody, that is, except many of your senators. They just don’t care.”

Barefoot hippies in Boulder? No. That was the Florida Sun Sentinel.

“The U.S. Senate’s handling of a gun safety package was cowardly and contemptible … What kind of a governing body responds to a national crisis by refusing to even discuss it openly and publicly?”

I agree with that, but it was written by the Kansas City Star. Hundreds of editorials across the country used the same language, making it clear that the NRA had bullied a handful of low-life senators who are so cowardly, so corrupt that they would knowingly lie and distort the issue in a painfully obvious attempt to cover their political tracts and back ends. This, this is on par with Nixon’s nastiness. This is unforgivable.

And not only did the liars at the NRA cheat the 90 percent of Americans wanting expanded gun registration out of what they want, by cheating and extorting and misleading, they celebrated their successful deceit when they “won.”

Mission accomplished. You want to know who those people really are? Well some people estimate that 1 in 4 Americans now own a gun. That would be about 76 million people. How many “belong” to the NRA? About 4.5 million. You know how many Americans don’t answer to the NRA goons? 309 million Americans. You know who dropped his membership to the NRA? George H. W. Bush after NRA freaks bought paid ads calling the government “jack-booted thugs.”

By using the weapon of choice for all terrorist organizations, extortion, the NRA has forced the action of about 45 ineffectual U.S. senators, a clear act of terrorism and treason. And Wayne LaPierre and his arrogant cronies are laughing about it. They’re laughing at 9 out of 10 of you and your insistence that Congress do something reasonable to stop the insanity in this country.

It’s time for the majority of Americans to fight the battle cowards in the Senate are too gutless to handle. If you have a relationship with the terrorists at the NRA, end it. Insist your political heroes do the same and turn back NRA blood money from gun makers. If you really stand behind the spirit of the American Constitution, push back against the cancerous threat that seeks to undermine it for the sake of U.S. gun makers.


Picking on the NRA has taught me plenty

Among the things I’ve learned in the past few days is that it’s best to always start my car with the driver’s door open. That way, if my car’s bombed, my chances of survival increase as I’m blasted out the door, as opposed to smithereens.

Police included that among a long-list of pointers after my life became a little more complicated this week. For the last few days, tens of thousands of fussy gunners have taken exception to a column I wrote three weeks ago comparing the National Rifle Association to a terrorist organization. When the column went viral this weekend via websites that have now labeled me “lib-tard of the week,” my crash course in “Are you freaking kidding me?” began in earnest.

for PerryCol5.9I learned that there are thousands of passionate, thoughtful, civil people all over the country who vehemently disagree with me and are motivated enough to take the time to say so — often very eloquently. Nice to meet you.

I learned that there are tens of thousands of creeps out there who are the firearms equivalent of park bathroom exhibitionists, eager to show me their stuff, talk about my orifices and defend their backyard bunkers with hollow-point bullets when the imminent communist takeover by Obama and company finally unfolds. Y’all worry me.

I’ve learned that many people who disagree with proponents of gun control seem to think that we wet the bed, and they talk a lot about that. I greet each day with dry sheets, dudes, but I have had to wake up snuggling cold pillow drool on more than once occasion, if that’s somehow telling.

I learned that despite a pretty low level of communication skills, people who hate me, and I mean really, really, really hate me, can call the newsroom and string together an extemporaneous, impressive and creative array of threats and obscenities.

I’ve learned that having people growl into the phone that they’re going to “get me,” “take care of me,” “take me out,” “fix me,” “remove me” and use “my pansy ass” for target practice is pretty scary shit. It also makes me angry that, even as hyperbole, it’s all about threats and shooting people.

I’ve learned that there are people as foolish or fed up as I am, willing to stand up to bullies at the NRA and tell them it doesn’t have to be like this. There’s room for the Second Amendment and getting rapid-fire, high-capacity military weapons out of the hands of criminals and everyone else who doesn’t need them.

But more than anything, the last few days have stumped me. I am bewildered by the number of people who are paranoid about the U.S. government coming to enslave them. So many people are convinced that if they were forced to pass background checks at a gun show, or if Congress outlawed a list of guns that act like military assault rifles, that goose steppers would be knocking at their doors demanding papers and their weapons.

Why? These folks often point to Nazi Germany, as if the German people were taken over by their government and —  weaponless —  were unable to regain control. The scary part about Hitler is that the Germans went willingly. It wasn’t about guns, it was about fear, paranoia, the economy and an unhealthy sense of righteousness, entitlement and patriotism.

I don’t want the government to take the hunting rifles, sharp-shooting guns or even Desert Eagle from people who think they need them for self-protection, sentiment or just an odd sense of fun. I think most gun-control advocates feel the same way. But I don’t believe that the “right to bear arms” is a limitless right to amass what Boston police might describe as weapons of mass destruction.

And I believe now more than ever that the leaders of the NRA do act like terrorists, inciting fear and hate among their members. They threaten elected officials with massive sums of money to oust them if they don’t comply with NRA demands on the House and Senate floors. They inspire members to unleash an unnerving tidal wave of threats, saying that even if 99 percent of Americans agreed that they no longer want military-weapons in the hands of American civilians, that we must “come and take” them. They say this is a “culture war” among freedom-loving patriots and despicable liberal stooges.

If more of us don’t stand up to the NRA, nothing will change. I’ve learned that I may be driving home a different way each night from now on, but I’m not going to shut up.

    When I read the first few paragraphs, the only thing that came to mind were the lies, deceit, and obviously corrupt journalists in papers like this. This paper is so bent on giving up our liberties that they would gladly hand this country over to tyrants for an ounce of security. Us “gun nuts” know history and are well aware of the consequences of removing arms from a society. 100 million dead in the last 100 years are the tragic result of gun control.

    On the micro scale firearms are used in self defense over 2.5 million times per year. Often brandishing the weapon is enough to deter crimes. It has been proven that gun control results in more violent crime. By trying to remove guns through gun control, you are actively saying that you desire more women to be raped, you desire more assaults, you desire more honest citizens to die. Shame on you. Perry you and your anti-american kind literally sicken veterans like me. We fought to protect the constitution, we took an oath that did not end when we got our dd-214.

    Just remember my oath promises to protect your right to publish this drivel, my gun backs up that oath.

    • John,

      You wrote … “This paper is so bent on giving up our liberties that they would gladly hand this country over to tyrants for an ounce of security.”

      There is not even an ounce of security to be had, not unless background checks result in the committing of nut cases to mental hospitals.

      We need lunatic control and felon control, not gun control.

    • The real issue in the gun debate is not
      “gun safety”. Nor is it about the massacre of
      a couple dozen school children in Newtown. It is about the disarming of the American people so they are
      at the mercy of government at all levels. An armed person is a citizen. An unarmed person is a subject. The gun grabbers, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder will stop at nothing, even the
      arming of drug cartels in Mexico, to disarm the American people, in contravention of the 2d Amendment to the Constitution.

      Total deaths in the USA in 2011: 2,437,163
      Number of deaths for leading causes of death in
      Heart disease: 597,689
      Cancer: 574,743
      Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080
      Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476
      Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120,859
      Alzheimer’s disease: 83,494
      Diabetes: 69,071
      Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,476
      Influenza and Pneumonia: 50,097
      Intentional self-harm (suicide): 38,364
      Septicemia:35,539 Chronic liver
      disease and cirrhosis: 33,539
      Essential hypertension and hypertensive renal disease: 27,477
      Parkinson’s disease:23,107
      Pneumonitis due to solids and liquids: 18,090

      By contrast, in 2011 – the latest year for which detailed statistics are available – there were 12,664 murders in the US. Of those, firearms of all kinds were used in 8,583.

  • parched

    I like Dave Perry’s comments! And, really, gun safety laws do NOT mean removing guns from all Americans. It seems to me that the NRA, John, and ember8214 are the ones giving up our liberties and taking away our democracy and the will of the VAST majority of the people.

    • Billll

      “gun safety laws do NOT mean removing guns from all Americans.”

      No, just those not employed by the police or the military. The last batch passed here exempted all government employees from the State Patrol to the town dog catcher.

    • perlhaqr

      We don’t have a democracy, we have a constitutional republic.

      In blunt terms: It doesn’t matter what “the VAST majority of the people” want. If it is against the Constitution, it’s against the Constitution. There is a method for altering that, but a simple vote in Congress is not it.

      We have an amendment, the 13th, which prohibits involuntary servitude. If when polled, it came out that 90% of Americans were in favor of enslaving some minority population, would you be upset if 45 Senators voted against a bill proposing to do that anyway? I sure wouldn’t. I’d be pissed off that 55 Senators had voted for it. (Both because it’s disgusting, and because it’s a clear violation of the Constitution.)

      Yeah, and 100% of the 90% are know-nothing sheep with no idea of reality..

    • The vast majority do NOT want more gun control. They want current gun control enforced. YOU are giving away our liberties. READ for chrissakes. Background checks lead to registration which lead to confiscation. Proof is this is happening RIGHT NOW in California to those poor fools that thought like you did when they registered their guns.

      • will249fyi

        Another way the gov. get’s around taking your gun is done by design or regulating. Think about it once, if they change the way a gun is suppose to work , say, changing the way it will now only fire in by only one person that would be mandatory in order to own a firing weapon so it meets with the new authorized safety standards. Then it would allow gov. to confiscate legally [ All gun’s that don’t meet the new gov. safety standards]. It’s sort of like how unleaded gas kept getting always regulated lower and lower ,without caring about inefficiency . Now the gov. has regulated gas engines to the point that E gasoline mixture totally destroys a older car’s mechanics , till their useless. Then we’er left the new an improved car of the future ? I know this sound’s like nonsense, but over time the car and people who owned them have been done in like the frog slowly sitting in a pot of heating water. We really need to stay alert. They may try a backdoor approach by design or regulating .

    • There is no maxim in my opinion which is more liable to be misapplied, and which therefore needs elucidation, than the current one that the interest of the majority is the political standard of right and wrong… In fact it is only reestablishing under another name a more specious form: force as the measure of right.

      Constitutional rights may not be infringed simply because the majority of the people choose that they be.

      The pretense that any human right should be subject to popularity polls is repugnant. The entire concept of a “right” is to provide protection for unpopular stances or behaviors. Popular stances and behaviors need no protection.

      Hain’t we got all the fools in town on our side? And hain’t that a big enough majority in any town?

    • It seems to me that you must have not taken a logic and reason course. I’d recommend that, but in the interim, start with googling “logical fallacies.”
      Out of all the Amendments, only the Second has “shall not be infringed” as part of its text. Not even the First has that.

    • thomaspainelives

      This is not a democracy, it used to be a republic. Now it’s closer to a socialistic state or a dictatorship. With people like you and Dave Perry spouting off, it’s even closer to that goal. The will of the VAST majority of the people is for safety through enforcement of the 20000+ gun laws on the books now. More laws are NEVER a good idea.

          • Luis

            Partially correct, planeboy. NRA was founded on November 17, 1871 by ex-U.S. Union generals Philip Sheridan, and I believe, by Ambrose Burnside. During the war, they were appalled at the “greenness” of some of the Union troops regarding weapons handling and deployment. At the same time, they were impressed with the skills of the Southern troops, many of whom grew up around guns and rifles. They were concerned that if such a situation broke out again, then people would need to know how to use firearms for protection. It had nothing to do with ex-slaves gun rights.

            The NAACP, which (falsely) bills itself as the oldest civil rights organization, wasn’t founded until February 12, 1909.

          • Mr. Perry does NOT want to disarm ALL Americans… Just the ones who don’t work for the Government. Clearly Mr. Perry does not approve of a Government in which those with whom he disagrees can petition their elected representatives without fear of being charged with Treason for having raised their voices.

          • Rock Hillbilly (*Patriot*)

          • Truer words never spoken, Hillbilly.

          • A Democrat is an irrational, selfish person who hates other people’s freedom (individual rights), such as life and private property (land, wealth, income and firearms). This is why crime and voting statistics prove Democrats commit essentially all violent crime depriving others of life and property, why Democrats torture and execute their own unborn for convenience (yet refuse to put convicted Democrat rapists and murderers to sleep) and why Democrats run government like organized crime to steal or control, skim and redistribute as much private property as they can get their hands on. Democrats are the enemy of Americans.

            “Daniel Martin Gray”… I realise you are not a real individual at all and actually some sort of fictional construct that has been market-researched and focus-tested by a right-wing think tank somewhere in the bowels of Washington as a mouthpiece for Republican talking points and Tea Party jingoisms…

            But a word of advice to whoever has control of the account at the moment…. your schtick is getting very, very old indeed.

            Previously your ubiquity and faux-Revolutionary misuse of ARBITRARY CAPITALS were for the most part amusing, and only mildly annoying. But having seen the same tired catchphrases used time and time again, on every American news story everywhere…. and now in eye-gouging bold everytime…

            Time to change it up, guys.

          • Username__already__exists

            So all of these people commenting on this idiots rant about the NRA – we’re all just constructs of the NRA??? Wow does that mean I don’t have to pay my taxes? If I’m not real then I shouldn’t have to pay taxes at all.

            I’ve seen some real lu lu’s from the left side of the fence but yours takes the cake. Tell us, how did you crack the secret NRA code that reveals which posters are real and which are computer generated? What frequency is your tin hat tuned to because most won’t pick up that channel? I’ve never heard any other liberal quacks making this claim so you must be dialed into a whole new vibe dude. Spill it man and clue us all in man.ok man? Thanks man. But first you need to prove you aren’t a liberalbot. Just answer this simple question. How many joints are in a lid? Any real lib knows the answer. If you can’t answer then maybe you are the bot. Second question. What’s the answer to life, the universe and everything? I’ll even give you a hint since bots don’t recognize deductive reasoning. The answer is the sum of 41 + 1. Every lib can answer that question.

          • Lance Uppercut

            Take a deep breath, then go back and read my post. Where did I ever say “all of these people”? My post was addressed to “Daniel Martin Gray” only. And yes, I remain convinced it’s not an actual individual but a front for multiple posters of some political organisation dedicated to parroting Tea Party talking points. Just take a look at the hit-and-run posting style… a single comment on every political story that Drudge links to, printed all in bold and festooned with superflous capitals in an attempt to draw maximum attention. And yet it’s always the one post, there’s never any response to questions or critiques, and never ANY follow-up posts. I’m sure there’s a leftist equivalent somewhere, spamming every story on Huff Post or wherever… make your own conclusions.

            Sorry, I’m not American so I don’t know what a lid is I’m afraid. But as for your second question (the Ultimate Question it turns out)… yes, 42 of course. I was reading Hitchhiker’s Guide when guys like you were still watching Saturday morning cartoons.

          • Schlomo

            “Where did I ever say “all of these people”? My post was addressed to “Daniel Martin Gray” only.”
            Your implication was quite clear, take responsibility for it.
            Congratulations to you and to us for not being American. The word is ‘lib’, with a b, not a d, but I’m quite sure you already knew that. It’s a perjorative truncation of ‘liberal’ – an ironic moniker at best, since those who sanctimoniously identify themselves as such are not interested in liberating anybody.
            Further congratulations on being older than Username. Although, in address to another of your clear implications, I fail to see how that makes your comments or opinions more valuable than his.

          • Lance Uppercut

            The implication? Don’t make me laugh… I made my point clearly enough the first time, it’s not my responsibility to answer to what you imagine I’m trying to say. And anyway it’s obvious you are not even really reading my post or the one I was responding to as I was answering a direct question “how many joints in a lid?”, and I genuinely don’t know what that is.

            Of course I know what a “lib” is, and a “libturd”, and every other pejorative term being repeated ad nauseum on these sites. I was educated outside the United States remember, I am not dense.

          • Schlomo

            Oh, LID, as in an amount of marijuana. Well, that makes more sense then. Imagine my surprise — I thought you were just being a smarmy a$s for the sake of it. Silly me… who could imagine a Lefty behaving in such a fashion? LOL

            Oh, yes; Please include some legitimate traceable source from which you got those talking points.

Miller, 307 US 174 (1939). The fact that Democrats used to understand the firearms protected by the 2nd Amendment shows just how traitorous present Democrats are.

        Folks, let’s put this little man in perspective. He writes for a newspaper that has a paid circulation of 7,500. It is published 1 day a week. I suspect only half of that circulation reads it.

        Nevertheless, I will never miss an opportunity to personally bash such drivel, and the ignorant who serve up this pablum for their like-minded minions. Perry’s opinion is dung, and can only appeal to his tribe of extremists who would gut the 2nd Amendment… if they were not a minority.

        • HapiJak

          Do not kid yourself – they would gut the Constitution and Bill of Rights. They have no intention to stop with just the Second Amendment.

          • Of course this particular piece isn’t about the 2nd amendment at all.

            His target here is the ability of citizens to peaceably assemble for the purpose of telling our legislators that we will vote them out if they pass legislation we don’t like.

            Yes. This Perry fellow hates the First Amendment. When you hate one of our Bill of Rights, you tend to hate them all.

            Wrong! Liberals only hate those amendments that don’t affect themselves!

            Here in the U.S., Jews are at the forefront of the gun-control putsch.

            He wants our guns and ammo you see,
            Cause his tyranny, is not to be.
            We are free people in this land,
            But not under the Kings heavy hand.

            He is working hard almost everyday,
            To try and take our rights away.

            Afraid that will be one tremendous mistake!

            Take from the makers everything he can,
            To GIVE to the takers in this great land.

            Between Fast & Furious and Ben-ghazi,
            The King is a liar as we all can see.
            Lie to America every chance he gets,
            There is no lie that he regrets.

            We must hold firm to survive this regime,

Not because they care about guns, they don’t, they care about getting stupid people to vote for them so they can continue to rip off the working class. Why would they care about guns, they have passports, millions of dollars, so if their idiot followers ever figure out what they have done, they can hire the US Marines to kill you with cruise missiles fired a thousand miles away and drones controlled in big rooms with cool computers, as they fly a private jet to another place, where they can find a new batch of morons to call themselves republicans.

          People like Perry have Charlie Chaplin Mustaches. They may not wear them on the outside, but they all have them on the inside. The are Nazis, who fap to the idea of controlling your life, deprive you of rights, squash your liberty and slaughter your children in the womb. They are sickos and the country would do well to rid itself of their filth!

      I read today that Gitmo costs us $900,000 per year per prisoner. With sequester, we can’t afford to send anyone else there.

      Do you believe idiots like Perry are even employable?

      We are told we shouldn’t judge the world’s Muslims based on the actions of a minute few. Gun owners are only asking for the same treatment.

      • Dave Perry should be sent down to Gitmo as a koranus-love-bride. He fits right in with the jihadis who ALSO WANT LAW-ABDIING AMERICAN’S DISARMED.

        • They give me $900,000 a year I’m buying more guns and ammo. Cuz let’s be honest an ARMED AMERICA IS A SAFE AMERICA> Funny that back in the early 1900s gun safrety and the bible were taught in schools and we had 0.000% of American children being shot at schools or worrying about anyone coming in and attempting such a thing. Guess that’s why I don’t have a fancy ass degree from some liberal college. I have common sense that says if it ain’t broke stop F’n it up stupid.

      • BTeboe

        So very true. Besides all these extra and above checks were nothing more than a ploy to start a registry. It won’t stop the crazies no matter what. According to our law I have a right to own a gun, and I should be able to expect that my government will not infringe on that right. This guy’s argument is so flawed and he says that the majority of us were chomping at the bit after Newton to pass some kind of sweeping gun legislation was so wrong. Which of rights is next? We cannot allow ourselves to be stripped one by one.

      The genuine nature of the left is beginning to show itself. Lock up law abiding Americans who believe that they’ve got the right to self-defence, but don’t send ” the poor little immigrant from the third world,” who committed the cold blooded murders of four people in Boston, to Guantanamo. Oh no, that would be inhumane.
      You leftists get this strait; civil war is coming. And you WILL be sorry.

    • Ditto. I don’t want the mentally ill to have guns. I just don’t trust the cowardly left to not use such a provision to declare anyone who doesn’t agree with them mentally ill ( you know they already think that) and then use that as an excuse to confiscate guns. They abuse every power they have ever been given, and this will be no exception

  • Stik

    Amazing how liberals hate freedom, due process and the Constitution. I think we see who the real terrorists are. I think Dave Perry should be sent to Guantanamo Bay without due process for his anti-American views. Why is it that when I say something as stupid as Mr. Perry it gets laughed off?

  • PeanutButter

    Apparently when the people refuse to accept a law that, by the admission of supporters and detractors alike, would have done nothing to prevent the gun violence that inspired the legislation in the first place, those people designate themselves heartless murderers, gutless sycophantic shills for evil faceless merchants of death, extortionists, cowards, and hypocrites. Apparently it’s “common sense” to respond to tragedy by passing legislation that would have failed entirely to prevent the tragedy. Apparently we are lunatics for believing that criminals who are already prepared to commit capital offenses are unlikely to submit to new laws making their illegal acts still more illegal. Apparently we as a people are contemptible terrorists for refusing to give up rights peacefully exercised by millions as punishment for evil acts of a few criminally insane murderers. Apparently the NRA wields some inexplicable and magical power over politicians across the nation, despite, we are told, little actual grass roots support. One wonders where they store the presses that print their money, given that the loud mouths in the press fail to recognize any possibility that it comes from Mr. and Mrs. America. Please forgive me if I fail to see the “common sense” in such thinking. You’ll also forgive me, I hope, if I refuse to give up the inalienable right to due process of law in the face of your outrage that I also refuse to give up my inalienable right to provide for my own defense.

    I live in Dallas County and around here the DMN is often referred to as “Pravda on the Trinity” As far as the NRA is concerned (I’m a life member) there are four and a half million reasons why we won that debate in the Senate. When there are gun control clubs, print magazines, shows, and a multi billion dollar gun control industry, then maybe I’ll believe the majority of the American public support it.

And I supported equal treatment for homosexual people too… And then what happens when I expect people to help out for preserving liberties, Constitutional-liberties, in an area important to me? Well, we’re subjected to vomit like this.

    That’s right, throw away due process and put your political enemies into a prison camp; what could possibly go wrong?! It’s such a historically positive thing! Well, Perry, when it’s your ass set up to be ridden out out of town in the cattle car, or your name that ends up on a robot kill-list somewhere, don’t come looking for me to step up on your behalf. Fail on the principles of liberty and you may wallow in the Hell of your own making.

    Perry, what kind of a monster are you? How are you any different than the nazis who tossed Jews and other “undesirables” into extermination camps because they were “enemies of the people”?

    I agree with Rob Reed: Perry, I DARE you, you detestable little maggot.

    • hd505, you owe maggots an apology. At least, they provide some useful benefits.

      Perry is just another head-up-sigmoid-colon, intellectually bankrupt, socially divisive, psychologically bent, morally anchorless, cowardly parrot.

      And as an NRA member, I invite Perry and those of his ilk to begin now to attempt to deprive me, NRA members and, generally, citizens of their constitutional rights.

      Perry and his cohorts will find a new definition of resistance and freedom, neither of which he and they will like or understand.

    At least the NRA doesn’t run to the scene of every gun crime and soak their hands in the blood of dead people like every democrat does. They actually make their augments based on facts.


    Adjectives to describe the misguided Dave Perry:


    I would also add the following:

    Dave doesn’t understand, or refuses to believe that a majority of America doesn’t agree with his own brand of stupidity. The NRA is a civil rights organization, Dave, I suggest you read the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. That is the document that assures that even stupid people can have opinions, and print them in the media.

  • zipperhead

    hahaha….kooky liberals.

  • You are such a fool perry!

  • PERRY: I’m one step away from supporting the “gun control” final solution (genocide of all law-abiding gun owners)

    • Ms. Red

      That looks to me like a credible threat of violence, inciting to riot, promoting crime (calling for murder)… in short, the local police (and maybe the FBI) need to investigate this loon. (With apologies to all the real loons of the bird variety.)

  • You will not survive any attempt to implement your sick, evil proposal, Perry. The only question is how many people you’ll drag to Hell with you.

    Me–I plan to be around at least long enough to enjoy the celebratory performance of messy bodily functions on your shallow grave.

  • And not only did the liars at the NRA cheat the 90 percent of Americans wanting expanded gun registration out of what they want, by cheating and extorting and misleading, they celebrated their successful deceit when they “won.”
    Well at least you are consistent. Consistently lying. And at least your side is admitting it is about REGISTRATION which we all know will lead to CONFISCATION.
    90% of Americans do NOT want expanded background checks or registration. But the Obama administration and others don’t care. Just like when 60%+ of Americans didn’t want Obamacare and they pushed it through ANYWAY.

    • The Obama administration loves to use that “90%” figure without an ounce of credibility. The media flunkies like Perry refuse to point out that the figure comes from a pre-Brady-Bill poll of less than 1500 people. Just about as truthful as “90%” of the Mexican Cartel guns come from border gun shops in the USA. That was proven to be a bald-faced lie by the administration. And it was no surprise that a few years later we learned the BATF was helping arm the Mexican Cartels with US made guns to prove their bosses right.

      The left must resort to a constant stream of lies, half-truths and propaganda to maintain itself. They are aided by a complicit media that gives credibility to the left while ignoring arguments from Bill of Rights supporters.

      • Guest

        They had the “90%” figure left over from the “Mexican crime guns that came from America” lie. They stopped using it when the truth behind Fast and Furious broke, so it was a government surplus statistic.

    Good luck with that DP…

  • southtexaspistolero

    Well. How nice. Man, Dave Perry is such a little ray of sunshine! A few things…

    1. As some of us say, why are anti-gunners so violent?

    What? You know there would be violence involved, because all the people Dave Perry would have hauled off to Guantanamo Bay all have guns. And they’d be shooting back. To paraphrase Mike Vanderboegh, “if (Dave Perry’s) future fascists do win, it will be a Pyrrhic victory that would, for destruction and casualties, dwarf all of America’s wars put together. Which, if you think of it, is a funny way to have a ‘safe’ society.”

    2. Funny thing about anti-gunners. In so many instances not only are they willing to shred the Second Amendment, but they will also go after the others if it serves their goals. Witness Dave Perry’s willingness to throw away the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments as well. One wonders if he’d trash the Third Amendment as well. After all, the members of his American Einsatzgruppen are going to have to have somewhere to sleep every night.

    3. Seems to me that Dave Perry pretty much proves the point that all of us make when we talk about the Second Amendment being a safeguard against tyranny. They all say, “What? This is the United States of America! Nobody’s going to drag you out of your home off to a concentration camp! That could never happen here!”

    Oh, really?

    Hey, the dude said he wasn’t kidding. We should take him at his word, even if, as all good progressives do, he will get other mothers’ sons to die doing his evil work instead of leading the charge himself.

      Dave Perry doesn’t wet the bed. But that’s only because he wears diapers.

  • Dave Perry: Editor and a believer in a totalitarian form of government. He believes those who harbor political opinions different that Mr. Perry’s should be rounded up and imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay post haste. No rights at all. No First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Ninth and certainly no Second Amendment rights. No warrants, no trials, no juries. Let’s just dispense with “our odious and cumbersome system” — a system that has been respected and envied around the world — to rid the country of people who cling tightly to their guns. And their Constitution. And the rule of law, not the rule of tyrants like Perry.

    That a newspaper editor, ANY editor, would stoop to such vile, loathsome, pernicious, disgusting, noxious and malignant thinking and publicly advocate it in the media shows just how foul, corrupt and contemptible some (or perhaps most) of our media people have become. Mr. Perry deserves all the heat a person should take for publicly advocating an overthrow of our form of government. He just demanded it on the pages of the Sentinel.

    I’m not laughing either, Mr. Perry. That is PRECISELY what you just advocated. Throw away the Bill of Rights to imprison (your) political opponents, to support a system of government that silences dissident voices and commits political murder. What would Alexander Solzhenitsyn say about that?

    The media has long ridiculed the supporters of the Bill of Rights for believing that our government would ever start kicking in doors and hauling people off to gulags. We’ve heard the media refer to us as “believers in black helicopters” and other nonsense. Yet, many of those people are historians, military officers with experience overseas, Police who have seen disasters and unrest, doctors who aid countries after disasters, lawyers who have seen corrupt government officials at work and more. These are people who know how easily our Republican government apple cart can be overturned.

    And now, Mr. Perry proves it for us, right in the Sentinel’s pages.

    Thank you, Mr. Perry. You and your fellow journalists and editors have given us exactly the proof we need that there is, indeed, a desire by many to turn America into another third-world dictatorship.

    • Rossfor

      Very well stated. Perry does throw the covers off the true objectives of the progressives/liberals/communists — total state control over all aspects of American life. Bottom line, they seek fascist control with full and exclusive power to imprison or execute their opposition. And it’s all under the guise of “for our own good.”

    • Mr. Perry is a Traitor and at least prints his Sedition for the world to see. He is too big a Coward to do the deed for himself but at least he is dumb enough to articulate his hatred for the world to see.

    • David Caskey

      If you don’t think the government will kick in your door, just look at the videos of the Boston bombing (the MSM will not cover this). You see cops pointing guns at law abiding citizens in their homes, dishonoring them, forcing them out of their homes and searching without authority. The tragedy at Boston was not the bombing, but what the authorities did as an aftermath.

  • Are you all finished calling other people cowards?

    If you want our guns, you can come and get them, you hate-filled, totalitarian parent plower.

    Seriously, do you read the bile you write? Go keep company with your moral soul-mates: Beria, Che, Mao, and Chavez.

    • Rossfor

      “…garners instant (if fleeting flame)…” No, thanks to the writings of Perry and his like minded editorial predecessors the readership of this paper has steadily fallen for the 30 years I’ve lived in Aurora.

      I find it amazing that people in the newspaper business (it’s no longer journalism as it is narrative driven by statist crusaders) quote each other as some sort of authority and final word on a subject. And they wonder why the traditional effete lamestream media is in a death spiral as the alternative free media is rising. Hint: you no longer have an exclusive right to control what and how is published — and you’re defending a dying false narrative.

    This is perhaps the most consequential editorial ever written on the subject of gun control. Dave Perry has had the courage to state what many, if not most, of those on the left know to be the true purpose of banning guns.

    They are well informed enough to know that banning certain semi-automatic weapons because of their appearance is logically unsupportable and that crime statistics reveal the benefit would be infinitesimal. They also know that the best research performed to date on the implementation of gun bans indicates that compliance hovers somewhere between 20 to 50 percent. No, the real purpose of gun bans is to open up the possibility of imprisoning hundreds of thousands of Americans who hold conservative political views.

    Thank you Dave Perry for finally putting in writing what many on the right believed, but until now, couldn’t find written evidence to support.

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.


    If this isn’t abusive “hate speech” I don’t know what else it could be. Were anyone else to rail against Planned Parenthood (yet another “powerful lobbying force” that actually does murder people) or agsinst homosexual advocates or activists the writer would be shouted out of the public area within hours.

    But we see here the absolute hatred and intolerance of the disturbed liberal-elite media. There is no limit to how low someone like Mr. Perry might stoop to accomplish his hate-fueled agenda.

    • jgalt6

      The response to the vile Perry and his ilk is simple. Never, never make peace with a libtard/leftist. Simply ignore them unless it is impossible, as in they physically attack you. They are, and always will be, the enemy, and will never desist from their efforts to control, as their brains are defectively wired. Not insane, but close.

    • Nor, sir, is there any limit to what citizens — who love America, love its Constitution, love its freedoms and have the figurative or real testicularity to stand for country, Constitution and freedom — can and will do to push back harshly and decisively against cowardly fascists such as Perry.

  • Dear Dave please read 18USC 124 and consider if you nfit the definition of someone who is trying to overturn the Bill of rights (all 10 of them).

  • Threatening us with being loaded onto cattle cars is supposed to make us feel comfortable about disarming?

    • Gringao

      Seriously, is there any reason to trust these cretins with a registry of guns?

  • I don’t think your paper should allow sophomore journalism students to do guest editorials.

  • Millions of people write and call the senators saying we don’t want more gun control. The NRA tells the senators it will fight gun control. And when the senators fail to pass more gun control the leftist democrats are surprised.
    Americans do not want more gun control and that is the bottom line. One poll that is focused in the north east, and uses intentionally vague language, does not represent 90% of america, it’s a lie.

  • D2

    Oh oh. It looks like we have an angry “journalist”. News flash Mr. Journalist, the NRA represents it’s members. When it stopped soft-shoeing and compromising, and took a hard line, it’s membership surged. Get a grip sir. Gun owners in America aren’t going away quietly. We want our elected officials to stand fast in the face of anti-gun, anti-constitution, anti-freedom wing nuts like you.

  • Mr. Perry is exhibiting the desires of most progressive-fascists. They want to disarm everyone except themselves or their surrogates in government. Mr. Perry wants the state to have a monopoly on violence, and no one is to have weapons equal to the state with which to resist.

    I’d ask Mr. Perry the real question that is at the core of his rant, “what is it you want to do to us after we’re disarmed?”

    I think Mr. Perry’s answer, if he’s honest, would make most moral men and women cringe.

    • And I think our answer to immoral, cowardly, intellectually bankrupt, socially divisive, freedom-hating people such as Perry will make him and his ilk soil they shorts and panties — and stun them.

  • JC_VA

    Mr. Perry, this article screams helplessness, impotent rage, and frustration at your sides lack of power. Excellent! Please keep it up. As long as you do it, we know that those who value gun rights are winning. And we intend to keep on winning.

  • American1

    Mr Perry tho i hate your words i will defend to the death your right to say them even if you are wrong. I swore an oath to protect the constitution and yes that includes your right to write this dribble. but it also includes all others not to be picked and chosen at your needs. If you want to really help or do a story about how to really help America; Do a story on how to reopen the mental institutions. People disagree with the fact of keeping mentally ill people from getting guns just the way the government was going to decide who was mentally ill and couldn’t have them. besides you are going after a tool rather than the problem. please get a better education on something before you spout your dribble…

  • Aww, need your red diaper changed, little fella?

  • Righteous warrior

    Dear Mr. Perry. I am saddened, I am discouraged, I am dumbfounded at what you reveal in this piece. How is it that a man who grows up in this country and in our educational system, a smart man like yourself come to be so blind to the truth? How is it that liberals and conservatives no longer live in the same universe let alone speak the same language? We seemingly share many of the same values, you want to protect innocent people from violence, as do conservatives….yet you are willing to accuse a man who wishes the ability to protect his own family by owning a gun and compare them to evil. We have serious problems in this country, but due to political correctness we seem unable to face them. We can’t blame the black community for their responsibility in the overwhelming majority of murders (Mostly of other blacks) in places like Chicago, Detroit, D.C. and New Orleans, Los Angeles, etc. Let me be clear I am not saying blacks are more inclined to kill by nature…but they do in these present circumstances, and I blame that squarely on the black community. Juan Williams wrote a piece in the WSJ I believe where he detailed that a black male is 7 times more likely to commit murder than a white male. So let’s start addressing the problems that cause people to commit murder, not the instrument they use to carry it out. I personally have shot four people in my life, so I can positively proclaim the value and righteousness of a gun in stopping evil. I pray that you can open your eyes to the truth.

    The 2nd Amendment affirms our right to keep and bear arms.

    Any citizen also has the PRIVILEGE not to exercise that right.

    The exercise of that PRIVILEGE cannot abridge our Constitutionally affirmed RIGHT.

    So, Mr Perry, you may go sit in the corner and mewl and allow the adults to address the situation.

    NRA has done far more to promote gun safety and responsible gun ownership than all the anti-gun newspapers and organizations put together. Withdraw my support? No, I’ll double down.

  • Kat Von Clawswits

    What a pantload. I’m a responsible female gun-owner, Mr. Perry. Your hysterical rantings are just more liberal promulgation of the Big Lie, i.e. that weapons, rather than people, are the source of violence. The roots of aggression are inherent and primal since the first humans used sticks and stones to attack one another. When there are no assaults, there is no need for self-defense. Critical reasoning is what is called for, not disarmament. Try thinking instead of spinning.

    • I’m afraid you’re wasting your breath trying to instruct this twit in the finer points of reasoning. Casting your pearls before swine, so to speak. And I realize that I just insulted swine everywhere.

  • Editor Dave Perry is clearly a traitor, terrorist lover and enemy of the American People! This worthless subhuman filth should do the honorable thing in an otherwise wasted and terminate his own existence with extreme prejudice.

  • Brian Battles

    Dave Perry is either stunningly naive or simply a liar.

    If the NRA had the ability to purchase our politicians as readily as these pathetic liberals keep saying there would be no attempts at all ever by politicians to pass gun control legislation. These mythologically corrupt politicians would just call up the NRA and request a check in the mail for not producing the bills.

    The problem is the politicians have figured out that they can bring up hot topics and touch point bills to keep the “useful idiots” busy while the politicians get up to corrupt behavior elsewhere.

    The economy is in the tank, Obama’s Middle East policy is nonexistent, unemployment is so high that even when they lie and minimize it in reports it is still setting records. Immigrants are being picked up for committing crimes and released *inside the borders of the U.S.* instead of being deported *by Obama’s executive order*.

    The gun bills were theater designed to give people something else to worry about while the government pretends it is busy with doing something….

    • ConradCA

      It’s not that ” Obama’s Middle East policy is nonexistent” it has been successful beyond his wildest dreams. He is now number 1 at replacing our friends in the middle east with our enemies and has 1 murdered ambassador to his credit.

      • Brian Battles

        I stand corrected. You are exactly right.

    • Or Perry is stunningly ignorant, stupid, intellectually bankrupt, socially divisive, psychologically damaged, morally anchorless and cowardly — or he’s a Democrat-liberal-leftist.

      Oh, wait: the former’s the definition of the latter.

  • StarTripper

    What a loon. The NRA came in and told the Senators that the gun bill vote would be counted in the NRA’s grading of Congress Critters on gun rights. That grade gets sent to all the members prior to elections. Congress Critters want that A rating {unless they are from Deep blue states) so that was the extent of the extortion. No bags of cash.

    • And Mayor Bloomberg threatened the exact same thing, grade senators on their anti gun stance.

  • You fkn little media fascists never cease to amaze me. You call everyone that disagrees with your warped ideology Nazis, and then a sentence or two later you advocate putting people in concentration camps. I suggest that you take a couple Xanax Davey, and put your jackboots back in the closet.

      Presumably those jackboots go well with assless chaps, in his case.

  • Fascists like the “author” of this screed are exactly why we have the Second Ammendment.

    Come and take them, you sniveling slaver.

  • ConradCA

    Hundreds of millions have been murdered by statist governments just
    like the progressive fascist paradise that the progressives want to
    establish in our country. That is an evil greater that those who are
    murdered by criminals and the mentally ill.

    When our president lies to the people, ships guns to terrorists in Mexico and violates the constitution repeatedly the 2nd amendment is needed more than ever. We have a constitutional protected right to keep and bear arms and that includes our assault weapons.

  • The NRA is a group whose sole purpose is to defend the Bill of Rights but the author of this garbage calls them terrorists? What are his thoughts on the ACLU? Are they terrorists too?

    The NRA is not the real problem for you Mister Perry. The real problem is all of the millions upon millions of law abiding gun owners in this country who are not going to give up our firearms because you say so. The NRA is just the most widely known representative of those millions. So all I can say is “Attention all anti-gun, anti-second amendment liberals. We are not giving up our guns. Period. Find something else to cry about because this debate is over. You lost. You will always lose.”

    “turn back NRA blood money from gun makers. ”
    LOL! You mean all of the 3% of their annual revenue the get from gun mfg’s?

  • Lets see, the 90% came from a survey of 2,000 people. Hardly representative of 300 million people. Next those senators listened to the people who elected them not to the NRA. Mine who are democrat voted against the will of their constituents who wanted ZERO new gun control.

    NRA spent at Most $2 million on lobbying, that is a drop in the bucket compared to commercial interests who spend in the billions.

    Tell me how the NRA with only 4 million or so members “forced” a congress person to do anything. Congress should listen to the people who elect them and most did. Bloomberg has spent far more than the NRA ($12 million) in the last year to try to push trough a gun background check system that would require registration and bans and possibly confiscation if he would get his way. How come he isn’t the terrorist for being a traitor to the constitution of the United States?

    Liberal one sided hypocrisy at its best here when one group can spend 6 TIMES what the NRA spent yet be called the good guys.

    • tdperk

      Actually, a sample of 2000 is representative. The Democrat’s lie is about the question they asked. Of course 9 out of 10 people (why only 9?) said they wanted gun laws that would make it harder for criminals to get guns.

      Then the Democrats go and try to pass a law that makes it harder for everyone but the criminals to get and sell a gun, and which leaves it exactly as easy as before for criminals to get guns. And they wonder why they lost this fight?!

  • Bowserb

    Until I reached the end of the second paragraph, I thought this might be an article about the drug companies. You know, the ones who make all the mind altering drugs that lazy parents use along with TV and video games, as alternatives to active parenting. Drugs that virtually every mass killer in the last 35 years was on or had been on for years. Aurora, Columbine, others.

    John Noveske posted a list of mass killings, parent killings, suicides, and such-along with the drugs the perps had taken-on his Facebook page and shortly after, died in a single car accident on a deserted highway. Has anyone looked at drug companies as The Terrorists? They buy more elected reps than the gun mfrs and the NRA, NAGR, or GOA could even dream of influencing.

    • Bill Gryan

      It was an article about drugs in the sense that the author must have been using them while he wrote the article.

      Who but someone disconnected from reality would simultaneously cry about being called a “jack-booted thug” while advocating that his opponents be put in Guantanamo Bay?

    I recommend that we do a late term abortion on Mr Perry.

  • If our rights were subject to cherry-picked, misleading polls and outright lies then Jim Crow would still be in force and women would not have the right to vote.

So pretending that 90% of Americans want, or don’t want, some specific course of action is irrelevant.

  • I see the tolerance and liberal way of seeing life are all a facade. The editor no more believes in freedom than some tin-horn thug. The editor wants to send to Gitmo someone who is exercising their rights of political speech. Being defeated in a political dispute is not a crime but it does demonstrate how weak is the editor’s commitment to the Constitution.

    As a petite, 60-year old female, I like my firearms. They make me feel secure. And not only do I belong to the NRA, but I also belong to pretty much every other pro-Second Amendment group there is. By the way Dave, didn’t the Aurora shooter specifically target a movie theater that did not allow people to carry their guns on the premises? Shouldn’t you be railing against gun free zones, since all but one of the mass shootings since the 1950’s have occurred in gun free zones?

  • It’s always a plus for the American people to see the mask slip to reveal the fascist thugs of the reactionary left.

    What a bunch of rambling nonsense. You might as well write an article about the powerful “Swimming Pool Lobby” that supports the right of people to swim. Since about 20 American children drown every week (the equivalent of one Sandy Hook massacre), you must really be eager to put further restrictions on swimming.

    What’s that? You don’t really care about it? It’s because guns are scary-looking and swmming is fun, after all, right?

    Thanks for re-demonstrating all the shallowness of so-called “liberal” thought.

  • This is both a thought-provoking and action provoking piece. After dwelling on your rallying cry for action, I decided to take some myself. I therefore joined the NRA, even though I do not possess a firearm. I realized I need them, to protect myself from people like Mr. Perry, who would call for my imprisonment should I not agree with his position(s).

    I appreciate the clarification this column provided.

  • Bill Gryan

  • Mr. Perry makes a very strong argument for the necessity of arming ourselves as protection from people like him who would see their political enemies carted off to the gulag. I suspect he is not smart enough to understand the damage he has done to his cause and that he has proven his opponents points for them in the most vivid manner possible.

    I am not an NRA member, nor do I own a gun but I think the only rational course of action when faced with people in positions of authority who fail to reason and respect our rights in the same manner as Mr. Perry is to arm ourselves and to join organizations which oppose him and his ilk. He has convinced me of that much if nothing else.

    “(O)dious…system of justice”? So, Mr. Perry seems to think that the right to a jury trial by ones peers, as well as the right to a speedy trial, the right against self incriminating, and all the other rights guaranteed Americans under our system of justice are extremely unpleasant; repulsive – the dictionary definition of odious. Why should anyone who takes that position be taken seriously in regards to their position on the right guaranteed by the second amendment? It would be interesting to hear Mr. Perry expound on rights under the first amendment if this is his attitude about other freedoms, because the NRA is just exercising their right to free speech – and for this Mr. Perry wants five million members of the organization interred at GTMO.

  • Since the old saw says the pen is mightier than the sword…I would say you Dave Perry are the true terrorist and coward. Have you railed against the arrogant corrupt cronyism machine of the Obama machine? Have you used lectern to argue against policies that enslave generations of minorities and create an economic system that is a wreck and leaves millions with hope…you do remember…give a man a fish and feed him for a day..teach him to fish..(Give him a job) and feed for life…..Yes indeed you are a coward and a low life…..

    There’s so much silliness here one hardly knows where to start. I’ll settle for this: people like Mr. Perry call us paranoid loons when we say that our guns are a badly needed check on government power. Yet his immediate impulse upon losing a legislative battle fair and square is to, um, call on the government to do the EXACT thing we’re crazy to be worried about.

    And his call for violent fascism isn’t even grounded in reality. He’s wrong on every single particular, from the amount of money the NRA throws around to the source of that money to the causes of gun violence. Unarguably, factually wrong all the way around.

    I’ll just add my voice to those saying that if Mr. Perry wants to declare the law void and round me up, well, he’s welcome to try. I don’t think he’ll be happy with the result though.

  • Not sure if trolling, or serious?

  • southsalem

    Dave Perry is Exhibit A for #2A. History is replete with totalitarian fascists preying on the unarmed.

March me to Gitmo? Come. And. Get. Me. Coward. #MolonLabe!

    Really, Mr. Perry. As I write this, the comments are about 141-0 against your position, with many of them calling for YOUR deportation to Guantanamo.

    Granted, this comment-thread is a rather unscientific poll of sorts, but it may be taken as an indication of the “will of the people”. And since this country is a democracy (as you would have it) in which the will of the people should always be carried out, maybe YOU should be hauled off to Guantanamo.

    What’s that you say? You have constitutional rights against that sort of thing? And those rights have precedence over the will of the people, which is, after all, transient? Wow! Who’d a-thunk it!

    If you want freedom and liberty for yourself, sir, you must grant it to others. That you are unwilling to do so makes you a target for mockery, and worthy only of justifiable contempt.

    Perry’s reference to DMN as anything but a liberal rag is a dead giveaway that Perry is clueless, or deliberately misleads to push his agenda.

    Why is it that when terrorists strike, liberals get on their high horse and loudly proclaim their allegiance to American values and that “terror will never change who we are.”

    But when tragedy happens in a movie theater, they are eager to punish innocent Americans who DID NOT commit that crime.

    I think it would do more to preserve our country’s freedoms and Constitution if all of the people who want to do away with our Second Amendment rights go to Guantanamo Bay. They would not have to destroy the world’s greatest democracy to form their communist utopia — they could just walk across the border to Cuba. Eric Holder says the ability to cross borders without documentation is a civil right. I hope Perry exercises that right very soon.

    Another over-the-top Liberal consumed by emotion and irrationality.

    Calling one’s political opposition “terrorists” shows a lack of imagination as well as an inability to articulate the issue in a civil manner.

    By advocating extreme solutions set against crass exaggeration, Perry has proven two things:

    1) A profound unsuitability for his job.

    So, people with a hypothetical desire to protect themselves (and you), are a bigger offense to you than people who actually do kill innocent people with bombs? You really have some mixed up perspective.

  • pvbella

    Gee, where were you when the vast majority of Americans- up to 70%- were dead set against the Healthcare law? Oh, the fetid stench of journalistic hypocrisy.

  • Hale Adams

    Oh, and another thing, this time accidentally hilarious:

    The editorial’s headline refers to the “kidnappers at the NRA”. I am reminded of the Communist propaganda of the Soviet Union, which routinely referred to the West, and the United States in particular, as powers that sought to “kidnap the Motherland”.

    I hope the headline-writer’s choice of words is not as revealing as I think it is.

  • I get it. This editorial is a joke, right? This Dave Perry guy went on a wicked bender. He was too hammered to write his own name, let alone a coherent essay, and plagiarized a 1958 Daily Worker editorial. You’re quite the scamp,Dave.

  • Sounds like the NRA was right, after all.

    American citiizens do need the 2nd amendment to protect themselves from intolerant loons who would send their fellow citizens to prisonconcentration camps.

    Congrats, you just made another 3K citizens go shopping for a gun.


  • JamesW

    Without a doubt, Dave Perry is the most ignorant person ever allowed to write something for public consumption. Dave – please go hop in your time machine and go back to Soviet Russia, say somewhere around 1950. You have nothing to offer. Optionally, we can offer you the end of a rope, if that’s what you prefer, for your rantings and ravings certainly sound like threats to law-abiding citizens of this country. Because you seem to hate the Constitution, you should probably be hung for treason, or at the very least have your citizenship stripped and sent back home to North Korea.

  • Victor Erimita

    More hate-filled eliminationist rhetoric from the deranged Left.

  • JMJr

    Hey Dave I can see why your community was targeted. Soft targets like you and no one willing to defend them.

  • The Founders clearly didn’t intend for such idiotic and dangerous ideas to be spread to millions of people via the internet. What we really need is internet registration.

  • Universal background checks are a great idea if you don’t bother to think through the implications. And thinking through the implications of legislation is not a strength of the American Left, which is heavily if not exclusively represented in the editorial pages of most dailies.

    Universal background checks — a background check similar to those we have now but imposed on any transfer of a gun (And good luck defining that term “transfer”) including between private parties and relatives– would not have prevented any of the mass shootings we have had recently. None, zip, Nada. That’s because the critical character trait of mental imbalance was not known and threfore no conceivable background check would have kept Loughner, Lanza or Holmes from buying a gun, or “borrowing” one from somebody near to them. So the weakness of any background check is that we cannot screen for the critical trait.

    But it will sure be a nuisance to private parties wanting to sell, loan or give a way a gun. Maybe that’s the real goal.

    And it will not take long for the ATF or somebody who enforces the new background check to realize if they don’t already that the law cannot be enforced if the government doesn’t know where all the guns are. Otherwise you could sell one to your buddy at work and no one would even know you didn’t do the background check. Only if the government can prove that a gun in your possession got there with no background check can the law be enforced, so a gun registry will be necessary to effective enforcement, the very thing the Progs swear (“This time we won’t pull the ball away! Honest !”) they are not moving toward.

    And the real criminals? You know, those guys who collectively kill more Americans every year than in all the mass shootings and terrorist events combined — those guys don’t really care because they will ignore whatever law is passed and steal or smuggle in whatever firearms they need for their profession.

  • Oneof5mill.

    Now hang on folks. Mr. Perry may be on to something here.

    Mr. Perry, you round up the boats, can’t use trains its an island you know.

    I’ll grab a couple of rifles and some ammo and meet you at the dock.

    Cuba is great this time of year.

    You ship us 5 million NRA members over there, and we will do just fine.

    First we will move in and slap some sense into the poor hunger strikers.

    Tell them to either eat or go ahead and starve. Their choice. No more press reports, and no more force feeding.

    Then we will just load up and take a little drive over to Havana.
    Toss those Castro boys out and set up a new Representative republic based on the US constitution.

    But, I suggest we rewrite it to exchange the order of the first and second amendments. And elect some honest politicians.

    Once we get the economy back on its feet, we will bring our families over and and you can sit in your little puddle of venom and ferment.

    We will be having fun.

  • As one of the half million or so people who have joined the NRA since December, I guess I qualify for this.

    I would say I was surprised but as we saw during World War II, Progressive Democrats usually are quick to copy ideas from their Liberal Fascist Brethren in places like Germany.

  • Fire Dave Perry. This kind of hate speech has no place in civil political dialogue.

  • Tim Porter

    This is the same ill-informed malevolent rhetoric the author claims to despise. There is no examination of the facts, no effort to understand why those who support an opposing viewpoint do so – only a blatantly violent wish to send opposers to Guatanamo. This is sick and wrong.

  • Thank you for writing this op-ed piece.

    In response, I am going to go to my local gun store, and if they have anything in stock, I will buy it. I am not that hopeful, since the last time I was there, the only thing they had were customers.
    Also, I will have my local legislators look into the possibility of having the real terrorists thrown into Guantanamo. That’s right. The ones who have made common cause with the jihadis: newspaper editors voicing eliminationist rhetoric against peaceful people over their fundamental civil rights.

  • BenTheGuy

    Hundreds of columnists around the country lied or misled their readers. The bill that was voted down wasn’t generic “gun control”, like the survey questions. It was a specific bill with specific provisions, some of which were not good provisions. It’s pretty despicable when a columnist shows their dishonesty by not bothering to point out the difference between a very broad survey question “Which you like more gun control?” and a specific bill with specific provisions.

    Do you feel no shame?

  • Carl Hardwick

    This is a very common leftist argument. It goes like this:

    1. A liberal thinks people who believe in [fill in the conservative idea the left hates the most] should be [shot, jailed, murdered].

    2. Hidden assumption by the leftist: Those awful conservatives will simply allow leftists to [shoot, jail, kill] them. We’ll just passively let our enemies do whatever they want to us.

    3. This is the part that leftists never, ever think about. They’ve crossed the line form being a political opponent to a true enemy, an enemy that has declared they’ll do anything to get what they want. So the rational response of conservatives is do exactly the same thing to leftists. The leftists can no longer claim any kind of moral superiority (not that they have any to begin with) because turnabout is fair play.

    Leftists believe that conservatives will never initiate exactly the same violence against them that they want to perform on conservatives.

    Conservatives are fools for passing up this opportunity. If leftists want to take away the rights of conservatives, they’ll keep promoting that idea because they know that conservatives won’t do the same to them.

    If conservatives simply mirrored the threats of leftists against them, then they’ve be deterred from uttering those threats.

    But as long as conservatives refuse to engage, lefitsts get a free shot. They threaten conservatives and conservatives meekly do absolutely nothing.

    Muslims have successfully cowed liberal leftists. Leftists are terrified to speak out against Muslim terrorism.

    Conservatives should apply that lesson an attack leftists in the same way that they attack us.

    Once leftists know that we’ll respond in kind, they’ll stop attacking conservatives, just as they’ve stopped disagreeing with Muslim terrorists.

    So here is a revolutionary conservative idea. Let’s round up any liberal who wishes to take away our 2nd amendment rights and put them in Gitmo. Then they’ll be with their natural allies, Islamic terrorists.

    Can any liberal disagree with that idea? After all, they’ve already proposed it against gun owners.

    He judges that I can’t handle my 2nd Amendment rights. I think it’s clear that he can’t handle his 1st Amendment rights. Clearly he needs to be sent to Guantanamo.

  • Argumentative

    As one of the 309 non NRA members cited in this Article (nor am I a gun owner) I will weigh in with some uncomfortable observations for the anti gun side. For starter, you don’t make very good arguments. This editorial is a case in point. the thing is, when you’re reduced to suggesting that those with whom you disagree ought to be jailed, and then making unsupported accusations of corruption, terrorism, cowardice and just about every other nasty thing that comes to your clearly overwrought mind and directing these assertions against 2nd Amendment advocates who have a perfect right to state and argue for their positions, well you don’t do your side any favors. Nowhere in Mr Perry’s rant is there any acknowledgment of the fact that murder and other violent crime actually decreasing in this country. Nowhere is there any recognition of the fact that gun restrictions are vastly more likely to be restrict the freedom of the law abiding than they are to dissuade those intent on Mayhem.

  • archarthur

    What “military weapons?” The US military has never bought AR15s, nor have they purchased silly 100 round magazines. We all agree that crazy people should not have guns, but they are already prohibited possession under the gun control act of 1968. Your own Jon Holmes was known to be bat-sh*t crazy, yet the University of Colorado took no action before his shooting spree. Same with Loughner and Lanza.

    Who, exactly, would you suggest round up all these NRA folks without due process guaranteed under the US Constitution? There are 5 million armed NRA members – three times the authorized end strength of the US armed forces. The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the military being used as domestic police. National Guard troops belong to the governors. Don’t count on local law enforcement. Outside of a dozen urban centers, police are with the NRA. Homeland security has 260,000 employees, perhaps 25,000 of whom may be able to operate a firearm without injuring themselves.

    You could arm Occupy Wall Street or Organizing For America and send them into the rural South. If so, I want the taxidermy concession.

  • DirtyDave

    Mr. Perry is an idiot. Me, I am getting another gun to protect myself against idiot clowns such as him. Name calling Mr. Perry? That is so easy to do, you miserable buffoon. Being rational and clear headed is quite something beyond your ken, you feckless, whiny wimp.

    Showing off your phony outrage your limp-wristed twerpy friends. Save it for your white wine spritzing socials.

    Oh, yeah, the people who attend the NRA’s convention here in Houston are as fine a group of people as you will find anywhere, particularly when compared to those you can meet in some places such as, oh, say, Aurora, CO.

    And Ayn Rand had such a fine opinion of the that now benighted state. What happened? Oh, yeah, went Democratic. Magpul anyone? We love companies such as those here in Texas. Colt, too.

    Colorado is welcome to keep Mr. Perry and his ilk. Kiss off, Colorado. If it comes to it, we will be better able to protect ourselves. Mr. Perry that was the whole intent of the Second Amendment, remember? No? Not surprised.

  • archarthur

    As for the US Senators who killed the badly flawed gun control bill, more republicans voted for it than democrats voted against it. Nothing in this law would have prevented Sandy Hook or Aurora, or VA Tech, or Tucson. It was sheer political posturing. If Harry Reid (a “No” vote himself) had held his majority together, the measure would have passed, forcing the republican House to kill it, and perhaps suffer in blue states. The US is a representative democracy and in the end, constituents carried the day.

    • The United States are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, which means the GOVERNMENT at each level is limited in what sorts of power it may exercise, and under what conditions. Please get your terminology right.

  • archarthur

    No one knows how many firearms are owned by Americans or who those gun owners are. In 1996, the University of Minnesota conducted a survey and estimated that there were about 260 million guns in private hands. Looking at gun sales numbers from manufacturers, they estimate 5 million new weapons (2 million rifles, 2 million pistols and a million shotguns) are sold to the public annually. Pre Obama America would have about 320 million, less say 20 million destroyed, for a 300 million baseline. In 2009, NCIS requests averaged about 1.5 million per month. In 2013, the number increased to 2.2 million per month. If we run the numbers, they come out to 372 million weapons in private hands.

  • Tim W

    I just have to laugh at what a fool Dave Perry is. At first I thought this has to be satire, then I realized this deranged man is serious. He actually wants to lock up law abiding citizens without any due process because they hold different political views from him. He is so ignorant that he does not know that the NRA is the largest gun safety organization who trains millions of people every year. He is so ignorant that he does not know that NRA members are some of the most law abiding and decent people in the country.

    I feel sorry for Dave Perry who is so full of hate and ignorance that he actually thinks that an organization that is dedicated to our constitutional rights and gun safety is morally equivalent with people who bomb innocent civilians.

  • Ike Konoclast

    The Second Amendment to the Constitution was written to protect decent Americans from would-be slavemasters like you.

    So Senators who depend 100% on their constituents’ votes to keep their jobs are defying those voters becasue of the NRA? You do know that Mayor Bloomberg of NY personally has spent about three times the NRA’s advertising and lobbying budget on his personal quest to disarm Americans while he keeps his own private army/security force that is armed to the teeth?
    So much dangerous idiocy packed into one small column……terrifying to think this guy considers himself a molder of public opinion.

  • TheProudDuck

    Every word in this column is a lie, including “and” and “the.”

    That “90%” statistic is a lie, for instance. The Washington Post’s poll question (which generated the 90% response) asked people if they favored background checks at gun shows. Well, yes. *I* favor background checks at gun shows. There already *are* background checks at gun shows. You don’t need to expand background checks to get that.

    Having “assault” weapons (not “military-style” weapons, which are already illegal for all practical purposes) and “large capacity” magazines legal, does not increase the death toll from mass shootings. We can measure this very easily: Did the number of victims and number of mass shootings increase from 1994-2004, when the last assault weapons ban was in effect? No. Case closed.

  • “And not only did the liars at the NRA cheat the 90 percent of Americans wanting expanded gun registration out of what they want, by cheating and extorting and misleading, they celebrated their successful deceit when they “won.””
    Quoting that bogus 90% while calling someone else a liar. Shame on those senators, obeying their oath of office, betraying newspaper editoria writers call to ignore the parts of the constitution they don’t like.

    “Terrorism” = Americans telling their representatives that they will hold them accountable for how they represent us.

    How about background checks on journalists. We don’t want people with felony convictions or mental disorders allowed to spread ideas to millions of people. We need regulations that require every article to be independently fact checked before it is published. There should be severe penalties for hyperbole, melodrama, misusing words, failing to report inconvenient facts, and character assassination. Any journalist who is against these obviously well intentioned changes should be sent to Guantanamo with no due process.

  • harkin

  • johnnycrash

    I’m not a member of the NRA. I own a gun. I have used it in self defense. I am against gun control because it clearly doesn’t work. You use a lot of big mean words to describe the way I think, because you don’t want to argue with the fact that gun control disarms people like me, not criminals. You could have spent the entirety of your article explaining how criminals would not have access to black market guns, because that is the reason we don’t want to waste time, money, and give up freedoms for gun control. You don’t bother, because it would be a waste of time, because you know it would work as well as making drugs illegal has. The price of guns will rise enough to make selling them worth the risk of being caught. Even more politicians and police departments will be paid to look the other way. Maybe you think all guns and knowledge about how to build them can be eliminated? Ignore that fact that kids in Afghanistan can make a 9 mm in about a week with sheet metal and some simple tools. 3D printers are coming. I’ll give you more credit that you deserve by assuming you are not dumb an you have another agenda. So gun control is a make work program for government employees. It will also make life more difficult for conservatives. It will increase homicide and corruption but as a sociopath… you don’t care.

  • Scratch a liberal, find an autocrat. It’s no surprise at all that someone like Dave Perry wants to imprison innocent people for opposing his fascist desires.

  • AZPaul

    Good lord large business kidnapped Washington years ago with their lobbyists, only the NRA lobbies for Americans.

    What power does the NRA have over the congress? They simply have enough money to remind the voter how the politicians voted on a law. They don’t hold a gun to their head. They simply indicate to the voters how the congressmen voted to restrict their liberties. That is a horrilbe thing to do in our society.
    Now, what did they vote on. They voted on a bill that would exclude you from purchasing a gun based on a background check. That is horrilbe, terrible. Imagine that if you have nothing to hide, thus you should not fear this. EXCEPT, what are the criteria for exclusion. Actually, everyone has things to hide or diminish or would exclude them in this context. What if you went to the doctor for stress, no gun. What if you took a sedative after your mother died, no gun. The list goes on and on. Remember the last time they wanted to pass a bill and not tell us what was in it? I was called Obamacare and that bill is why we need the guns and the country is coming apart secondary to the great effort to provide health care to everyone, or no one.

  • Wow, you are ignorant Dave Perry. NRA is no different than the ACLU….even less like them because they arent inventing BS rights. NRA is made up of and funded majority by members…American citizens, who pay the NRA to fight and defend our 2nd Amendment Rights.

    “Our enemy is not Islam; our enemy is not ghetto black thuggery; our enemy is not the Mexican invasion. All of these are but symptoms—deadly symptoms, certainly, but only symptoms—of the underlying disease popularly known as liberalism. And the most effective pushers of this disease are our fellow whites.Id est: Liberal whites are our enemy. Period. Everything else is a mop-up job.

    And liberal whites come in three varieties:

    -Useful idiots

  • I really appreciate when people like Perry reveal their hate. It’s personal, you know. I read the editorial and I look at the political cartoon and I don’t see an “NRA” label on the ogre, I see “Julie”. Because that’s me. I think I ought to be treated like a force for good in our society, as though I’m trusted, and I want to own and carry a gun… maybe even one that is cosmetically “military”. It’s fun to shoot and I’m good at it. I don’t feel a great need for self-defense today, but I know enough about History to know that can change. I also care a great deal about what it would mean if our society insisted on preemptively treating citizens as if they are criminals.

    This is why “reasonable” measures can’t pass, Perry. Just so you know. Because we know the truth that you reveal and no one trusts you, or Obama, or Congress or any of those who really and truly hate us. Because we know what you really want…. and it’s not to “protect the children.”

  • FrankG

    nice sick cowardly rant

  • I simply want to know how someone so deeply stupid gets a column, and why a newspaper would keep on its staff someone so clearly committed to stripping citizens of civil rights.

  • This is pretty much libel against the NRA and it’s members. The only evil weapon the NRA is guilty of using is that of free speech. I’m glad the Aurora Sentinel is at least transparent in it’s disgust for the first amendment; at least when it’s practiced by people other than it’s employees.

    As for Mr Perry demanding that citizens be imprisoned for exercising their rights under the first and second amendments: how typically liberal.

  • Dantes

    So it’s not ok for NRA member to get involved in the political process, but it is ok for anyone against the NRA to call us terrorists, accuse us of baby killing, and shame and threaten Senators who listened to their constituents and voted against this very poorly written anti gun legislation.

    Check. You libs are getting more deranged every day. Now go have mommy change your diaper.

    Ninety percent? Nonsense. Ninety percent can whip the NRA any day of the week. And if it really is ninety percent, all those senators are toast. In 2014 the ninety percent will throw out every senator who defied them. But it’s after the vote now, and nobody cares. They never really did.

  • Deborah Eaton

    I have never owned a gun of any type, and never even wanted one. But this morning I watched video of Glenn Beck’s address to the NRA last night, and then I read Mr. Perry’s article. I am now a member of the NRA. It really is time to stand and fight back.

  • He_Wei_Jin

    Mr. Perry,
    After reading your jeremiad, I am more grateful than ever for the work of the NRA. Your hysterical screed is proof that inside every liberal is a totalitarian screaming to get out.
    In response for your demand to incarcerate me in a concentration camp for the fact that I believe in the the US constitution and refuse to allow you or your kind to disarm me or my fellow citizens, I urge you to do your worst. You’ll reap what you sow and bitterly regret the harvest.
    If you want to take my guns, I say Molon Labe!

  • May the peace of Allah the merciful and his prophet Muhammad be upon you and your goats.

  • Gee, Mister Perry, I guess you can try. Clearly, you never had much faith in a constitutional republic with certain rights like freedom of speech, religion. privacy or personal defense protected from the whims of any majority, so you may as well attempt to destroy it.

    You’re unlikely to succeed. You’ll be dooming a generation of Americans to a miserable existence while this country’s future is decided by force of arms.

    But by all means, if you can’t live with yourself otherwise, do try. But don’t expect many allies.

  • Someone disagrees with you and you want to send them to a concentration camp. How Stalinist.

  • Edohiguma

    Here’s a fun fact. In my country those “evil assault weapons” are 100% legal. You can get an AR15, or a semi-auto AK, or an AUG with relative ease (I own an AUG myself, it’s a fun gun to shoot.) You can arm up just as easily with multiple guns and it’s all 100% legal. “High capacity mags”? You mean stuff like 100 round drums? 100% legal. Those black rifles? They have an increasing popularity, too. There’s now discussion whether they’re feasible for hunting or not. That’s how popular those “assault weapons” have become.

    Right now we have almost 30% of our population legally armed, and that number keeps rising. The number of permits has more than doubled since the late 90s, while the crime with legally owned guns has dropped by more than 50% in the same time. We have a gun culture similar to the US, dating back to the Napoleonic Wars and the guerrilla war some of our people then waged on the French invaders. We have factual uniformed militia in some areas, which is in close contact with our army. They parade in uniform, fly their old flags, even fire their guns (blanks, but these rifles can fire live ammo as well, and military time is a requirement to join.)

    And yet… we have no gang violence, no spree killings, no mass shootings. Despite an ever growing number of legally owned guns.

    Why is that?

    Because guns aren’t the problem. People are. The US society is broken. Ours isn’t. That’s the issue.

    You take the guns away from gun violence in the US and you’ll still have a massive violence problem… because your society is broken.

    Want proof? Check the UK. The UK has higher gun violence per capita than my country, despite an effective gun bans. LEOs in the UK carry guns and wear bullet proof vests. We, too, carry guns, but we don’t wear vests, because we don’t have criminals packing all the time.

    Heck,the UK is the country with most violent crime per capita on the planet. Followed by 8 other EU countries with strict anti-gun laws, and South Africa. Hmmm… How odd is that?

    So how many people has the NRA murdered? None. Oh.

    Ship Dan Perry to North Korea. People like him make me proud and happy that I’m not American.

    • Gringao

      North Korea? Why not? Free food, free education and top-notch gun control. What’s not to like for a guy like Dave?

  • Rich

    Mr. Perry, you need to study World history pertaining to what has happened in countries with gun control and confiscation. Then read the Constitution and have the intelligence to realize that early prison release, psychotropic drugs and a failed mental health system are a much larger problem then the NRA will ever be! Wake Up!

  • In one yapping OpEd, miserable coward Dave Perry gives evidence of everything that’s wrong with “journalism” and “journalists” today. You’re a mewling piece of excrement, Perry, that needs to be scraped off the bottom of our national shoe.

    Dave Perry wrote: “I have seen the light. After all these years, I now agree that it’s
    fruitless to give the benefit of the doubt to people who are so
    obviously corrupt, so clearly malevolent, so bent on hurting innocent
    people for their own sick gain.”

    I agree with this 100%, if you are referring to Barack Obama and all the gun-grabber politicians (and newspaper writers). It’s this simple Dave, when you disarm law abiding people, you end up with more victims, more crime, more violence. Dave, you are so smug in you self-satisfied superiority, you don’t even recognize how ignorant and uninformed you are. You’ve obviously never read any of the scientific literature out there on the gun issue.

    You’re willing to put the lives of your fellow Americans on the line to satisfy your OWN sick hatreds. Dave, look in the mirror brother.

  • Stu G.

    Mr. Perry: Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Harry Truman once said something to the effect that Senator Joe McCarthy was the best ally the Soviet Union had in America. In a similar way, Mr. Perry, you’re about the best ally the NRA could possibly have. And unlike those senators, you’re working for them for free. Well done.

    One candid expression manifestation of the liberal fascist mindset appearing in an otherwise mainstream newspaper does more to convince ordinary, moderate, centrist Americans that the media elites in this country are a genuine threat than hundreds of hours of someone like Rush Limbaugh carrying on over the airwaves.

    Again, thank you. And keep up the good work

    P.S.: Make certain you remain useful to the Party. History shows what happens to low-level flunkies after their usefulness to their political masters has run its course.

    • B-Real

      Except McCarthy was RIGHT!!!

  • JamesMabry

    Behold the tolerance and warmth of the open minded progressive!

  • Perry is quite right that many editorials around the country have condemned the Senate vote, most in language that is decidedly angry and intemperate. None that I read can match Perry’s anger and diarrhea of the mouth, though. He’s way, way over the top.

    The reaction from the editors is not really about the gun control. It’s about their fast disappearing influence over the American people. Their place at the table among the power elite is in dire jeopardy, something none of them bargained for when they dished out all the tuition at CSJ. They now garner no more respect than any other asshat with an opinion on the internet, which is as it should be.

    Mr. Perry, your day is done.

  • Rick Schwartz

    I completely agree with Mr. Perry.

    Guns owners are disrespectful of authority. A failure to rely on authorities is an invariable sign of improper and overly independent attitudes. The mere fact that they gather together to talk about guns at gun shops, gun shows, shooting ranges, and on the internet means that they have some plot going against us normal people. A gun owner has no right to associate with another gun owner.

    Therefore, to help ensure our right to happiness and safety we must ban and seize all guns from private hands, and forbid NRA-based criticism towards people who are only trying to help. Searching the homes of all NRA members for any guns and pro-gun literature will go a long way towards reducing crime.

    Common sense requires only uniformed soldiers, police, and other agents of the state have access to firearms, and think of all the money we can save by just taking away the guns from private owners and giving them to the military and police. No person should be able to challenge this by writing to Congress or the President. If they do they should be forced in court to admit to it and then fined a hundred million dollars for each time. Subjecting them to torture will probably change their minds.

    Making it mandatory that church ministers preach against guns or else they can’t get licensed will certainly encourage the church folk to believe like we do.

    People who don’t like all this prove they are on the side of the killers with the guns and should be put in jail along side all the gangbangers and other gun nuts. Letting them sit in jail for a few years before they are charged will give the government plenty of time to find something wrong in their lives. Anything they say, write, or express should be held against them to prove their guilt. We should bring all of them here to Chicago to be tried by former Mayor Daly as judge, and we should allow only mothers who have lost children to gunfire to be on the juries. Any attorney who tries to defend them should be arrested also. If we don’t get the right verdict the first time we can just keep trying them until we do.

    No woman needs to protect herself from rape, assault or murder and should just leave crime prevention to the Police who are properly equipped to investigate following the crime’s completion. Women using a gun in self-defense interferes with and makes the attempted crime a “non-event,” which unnecessarily complicates the Police investigation. Any woman who does this should be put in jail for interfering with an investigation.

    If someone still really, really thinks they have a need for a gun in their home for protection then the Army should just force them to host and feed some armed soldiers.

    Those who claim that the 2nd amendment was given to us because we might someday need guns to use against an oppressive government forget that Constitution has strong internal safeguards to protect our freedoms. So there!

    Long live our Constitution!

    You describe Liberals and Democrats in particular, very well. Thank you.

    The Liberals, the hoplophobes, the gun grabbers are all enabling rape, murder, robbery, and other violent crimes. They do this by inhibiting honest Citizens from having weapons, and by encouraging the criminals. They don’t care if you are raped or murdered. Indeed, they prefer it if you were raped or murdered. They need victims to fuel their sick ideological agenda.

    Notice that the highest crime rates are in cities where gun ownership is most severely restricted: Chicago, New York, DC … Gun ownership in the US is up, and the death rate is down. Guns save lives. But the Liberals worship victims.

    It is time to hold the Liberals personally responsible for the crimes they encourage and for the murders they advocate. Make them social pariahs. Call them out and denounce them.

  • MikeCumpston

    Useless little man. The clear cut (shallow) opinion of the head count would support the background legislation as advertised by its sponsors and the dishonest media.. Background checks for private sales at gun shows. Background checks for “Internet Sale.” The media has convinced the headcount that internet sales are unregulated =a lie. They are made through dealers with the routine background check performed before transfer.
    Truthfully, the public does not support universal registration or requiring dealer transfers among private citizens -particularly when democrats like Chuck schuuummmaaahhhh D Ny has set the law up to require formal transfer and back ground check for simply leaving a firearm with a roommate or allowing a friend to borrow the gun for personal defense or simple target shooting.
    When the voters actually read the legislation, they are NOT in support of it. The justice department in a leaked internal memorandum admitted that the background check woudl be meaningless without universal registration. Even the Canadians refused to play along with that leftist scheme. They tossed out their long gun registry last month. According to recent polls the headcount is concerned about unemployment and not at all interested in increased gun control.

  • Mr. Perry, you like many other of the “do something” mentality, only spew emotional rhetoric. You believe passing a bill that would do nothing, is better than working on reforming a system of checks that could do something. Yes we all agree that weapons in the hands of the mentally disturbed is a bad thing. The bill did ZERO in that endeavor. It in no way would have prevented the Dylan Klebold, Eric Harris and Adam Lanzas of the world. Not a single line in that bill would have changed those shootings.

    The bill had open-ended provisions allowing unrestrained violations of privacy. It allowed employers to do secret background checks on individuals without their consent.

    “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

  • Irrelevant rhetoric from a two-bit newspaper.

  • This is what some suggest is meaningful dialogue with the anti gun crowd. I feel that this trend towards totalitarian means is shared by others. These very comments are why the right to keep and bear arms protect the right of free speech, assembly and the press. What concerns me is how flippant the editor throws out his suggestion. In sounds like he has rationalized his potential suggestions like his counter parts did when they defended Pol Pot and his actions. Time for some serious soul searching Mr Perry.

    So, Mr. Perry – I’m guessing you are a liberal, based on the fact that you’re in Aurora, and you hate the NRA, and you work at a newspaper. This makes me think you don’t like Guantanamo and the fact that terrorists are incarcerated there.

    You’re likely even upset that Obama hasn’t closed it yet, even though it’s just another campaign promise broken (and he keeps stringing you along). You don’t want actual terrorists there, who have killed Americans with guns, bombs, and planes (or planned such), but you want the government to round up law-abiding Americans to be sent there for exercising a Constitutional right. Did I get that right?

    You, sir, might be a fascist. Well I guess I’m not surprised. Every so-called liberal is a slaver at heart.

  • Mr. Perry,

    The renewed political battle over guns has been quite enlightening. Especially in the area of exposing just how many Americans have fascist tendencies. Americans like you.

    I also wonder what happened to “Don’t question our patriotism!” Apparently now it’s fine to call political opponents terrorists, and suggest that they be sent to camps. You should be ashamed of yourself and resign your position, or be fired, but we all know how likely that is.

  • People like this editor are so convinced of their own righteousness that they will dispense with the constitution, law, order and due process to do what they want done. This is the face of American Journalism at present. They believe themselves incapable of a wrong idea or wrong opinion. It is a nightmare for this country.

  • Mr. Perry, you are another failed “test rat” of the liberal education mind control mess. Your mind is warped from years of BS from the left. My mind is free and shall stay that way. Left wing gun grabbing laws are not popular and Congress knows it.

  • Perry, what needs to be discussed is how we deal with the mentally ill…what killed the poor people in Aurora, Sandy Hook, etc. is the fact that the shooters were mentally ILL! We need reform in our health care system so that it addresses those whose mental health is in question. And if we’re talking about lies, saying that more gun reform would have saved these innocents then it is YOU sir, that is lying. I see that your heart is in the right place, you wish to stop violence and evil. Heart over head seems to be de rigueur amongst you folk and you’ll believe ANYTHING to get your heart to stop hurting; do anything to make that hurt stop…unless we address our mentally ill it will NEVER stop.

Additional 5 yr periods for violence in prison. Mental health screenings for everyone who gets into a violent altercation. Lose of weapons if determined to be mentally ill. Then you might see a difference in gun violence. With 350 million weapons in America not much you can really do except over generations.

      Unknowingly you are proving Perry’s point. People like you shouldn’t be allowed near a gun.

      • I find it perfectly reasonable to respond to a fascist, like Mr. Perry, with “come and get me then.” That is the proper response to fascism: defiance.

        Or do you think it’s okay to put people into camps because of their political opinions?

    Democrats say that the Voter ID laws are designed to suppress the vote among groups that traditionally support Democrats. But lies are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party. The point is to suppress illegitimate / illegal votes.

    You know their principal voting constituencies — whole cemeteries, every inmate of every pet store and zoo, every critter in the wildlife sanctuary, including all of the tweetybirds and butterflies, the entire prairie dog population of Texas, felons, illegals, and the usual jackweeds who vote more than once by one or more popular subterfuges advocated, aided, and abetted by the Democrat party and the Democrat-captured media. Those nasty, evil Republicans and Libertarians! How DARE they insist on FAIR elections!

    Oh. By the way — how about voting machines that can’t be hacked or otherwise corrupted for the purpose of rigging and hijacking — stealing — an election?

    How about no driver licenses or ID cards that illegals can use for the purpose of voting when they greet a politically-sympathetic or racially-sympathetic poll worker at the polling station?

    As an NRA member this unseemly wish to declare war upon us makes me want to buy another rifle. Which, given the courageous acts by some in the Senate, I may still do.

  • Vugg

    if you join a firearm, please join the NRA. like the old saying, “we must hang together, or hang separately.” The libs want total control any way they can get it.

  • Hell, when I started reading this I thought he was talking about Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi and that crowd!!! LOL


    The Democrats have this “enemies list” — denominated in epithets and insults aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Terrorist!” and you can be a “Dictator” and you can be a “Hostage-taker!” and you can “Wear a tinfoil hat!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “Teabagger!” — a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be “Uneducated” and you can be an “Extremist!”

    You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Flake!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be “Unenlightened!” and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Greedy!” member of the productive class, and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” — although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist — either official, or self-appointed.

    Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

    So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things — and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scum — by The Friends of All Mankind — by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian hoodlums, thugs and gangsters — by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.

      What part of “WELL-REGULATED MILITA” is hard to understand?

      • What part of “the right of the people” do you not understand?

        What part of “the right of the people” do you not understand.

        Tell ya what Doug. I’ll trade with you. Your speech for my guns.

        The People. Look it up.

        • They don’t believe in the Constitution, so it is a moot point trying to get them to actually read it

      • Obviously you don’t know enough about history to understand what a “well-regulated militia” was at the time of the Revolution.
        Well regulated means “trained”. The militias were formed by every able bodied man to protect the colonists against the British. At that time only British soldiers were allowed to own guns. The founders wanted that right extended to all citizens.

        "Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, What should be the reward of such sacrifices?

  • Erik, KS

    You sir, are a moron. Why don’t you lament the 50 million-plus babies aborted in this country since Roe V. Wade? Gun ownership is a protected right in this country and so is our right to life. Enforce the law against those who violate the rights of others, not law abiding citizens just exercising their rights of personal protection.

  • NRA Benefactor Life Member

    The truth that illustrates that he’s lying about the NRA:

    He can utter such blood libels, and yet he is not in the slightest fear of his life.

    IOW, if we NRA members were the monsters he claims, his life wouldn’t be worth a plugged nickel.


  • Andylit

    The problem is very obvious, Dave. A huge majority in this nation are in favor of more gun control laws, bans, confiscations and the imprisonment of those who would resist. A majority of EDITORS.

    Thankfully, despite the massive efforts of you and your peers, the majority of Americans disagree with your twisted views. The time has come, Dave, for you and your ilk to realize that you no longer have the power to twist public policy into your diseased dream of mindless compliance. Your power is waning in the internet age. Soon it will be completely eroded.

    Understand this, Dave. Understand it CLEARLY.

    I AM THE NRA! They are doing MY WILL! They are spending MY MONEY! They support MY RIGHT! MY INDIVIDUAL RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!

    Understand that scum like you will NEVER AGAIN succeed in abridging MY RIGHT!


    The enemies of pure, laissez-faire capitalism — a politico-economic model which has never been tried — are adept at laying the shortcomings of government policy [statism] at the feet of capitalism.

    Envy, social class resentment, and the redistribution [theft] of wealth are poisonous to good government.

    And the more frequent, abject and complete the failure of these statist policies, the more urgently they demand more of the same.

    But Austrian School [capitalist] economist Murray Rothbard argued that if our goal is the Benthamite “greatest good for the greatest number,” then it is necessary to adopt laissez faire capitalism.

    Is it true that there are unequal success rates among human beings — and therefore unequal rewards in the free market? Sure!

    My body mechanic [my doctor] and my auto mechanic both make more money than I do — but of course I would not recommend that you hire me to remove your appendix or fix your car — unless you’re pretty much tired of living. I’m pretty bad with the violin, too.

    The market rightly rewards them better than it rewards me for their kind of work — pero asi es la vida.

  • I don’t know who in the hell you think you are. While you talk about rounding up law abiding Americans your government is supplying guns to drug cartels in Mexico and Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria, which by the way, got an American Ambassador tortured and murdered along with three other hero’s. While you sit behind your self righteous desk take out a copy of our Constitution and have a good look at our 2A. It is sacrosanct and worth spilling blood for. You want our guns? Molon Labe!!!!!


    What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary!

    And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad joke!

    But the Democrats believe in “statism” — not “liberalism.”

    Strip them naked of their “liberal” camouflage and behold their ugliness.

    They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology —- we say “the government” here in the USA —- rather than “the state.” And that’s a dangerous problem.

    Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism, socialism, fascism, communism, progressivism, and welfare statism —- these last two are mixtures of fascism and socialism.

    Note that these statists are all joined-at-the-hip and on-the-same-page in their common contempt, enmity, and disdain for human rights.

    Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government —- it is a constabulary —- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction.

    What “human rights?”

    I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

    A slave is owned by someone other than himself — but a free man owns himself.

    The first article of private property is “the self” — and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.

    These rights —- The Rights of Man —- are the gift of nature or of nature’s god —- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

    Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words.

    The words “liberal” and “liberalism” were hijacked by the Democrats, socialists, progressives, and fascists, long ago —- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.

    It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners —- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.

    Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity!

    Declare yourselves to be “liberals,” then —- and kick over the bloody coffee tables — and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2014! Destroy them!






  • David Perry: American fascist.

  • Looks like Dave Perry has been enjoying a little too much of the Ganja freedom of the New Left Republic. Durrrrr….

  • OMG they still think it’s 90%? If they had 90% of anything, Article 5 would have been utilized long ago. NRA 5million strong and counting!

    • Andylit

      They full well know it isn’t 90%, has never been 90%. it is the big lie method. Say it over and over and over and some will beleive it.


    It’s called the “Midas Touch In Reverse” — virtually everything the government touches turns not into gold — but into dreck. This is the magic touch of the Democrat party.

    They pat you on the head, steal your money in the form of taxes, dictate the terms of your existence through mandatory government programs and regulations — and then stick the tax collector’s gun in your face and kidnap [arrest] you or kill you if you put up a fight.

    The best part of this bullshirt is that if you are a taxpayer, you also paid for the frkn gun and the frkn bullets in it.

    The Democrats claim that the Republicans and the Libertarians are the “gun nuts” — but tattoo this on the inside of your brain and never forget it —- “Lies are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.”

  • Tony Varda

    this guy is nuts! How can any thinking human think like this?

    • Doug

      How can any human put a gun over the life of a child?

      • Why are some people too stupid to understand that most people have firearms to protect their families?

      • How can any human allow themselves to be bullied with false choices by you? Oh wait, they don’t…

      • The principal at Sandy Hook desperately called for people with guns to come rescue the children, but it took them 20 minutes to get there. If she had been prepared, she could have protected the children herself.

        How can you put your foolish left-wing ideology over the lives of 23 children?

      • Guns protect our children from lying, thieving scum like you.

      • Barry Hirsh

        Here’s a thought: Next time your kid’s being shot at in school, call the principal and INSIST that only cops with no guns respond.


    So OhBummer says that he has “23 executive actions” that he can take against Americans who own guns or who seek to acquire these instruments of self-defense.

    That lying fascist sack of shxt did not quote the specific Constitutional language which justifies each such action that he proposes.

    Instead, he and Axelrod ginned-up some kiddies to use as human shields — with coached language for kiddie letters — and publicly whizzed his propaganda all over their impressionable brains.

    And have the Republicans had the cojones to torpedo that pathological son of a bxtch? I’ll bet that the Republicans will just roll over as the OhBummer dictatorship crashes “Forward!”

    In the tumultuous war of words about “gun control,” we had better think instead in terms of “government control” — not “government control of the people,” mind you — but instead, “people control of their own lives” — which means — “people control of the government.”

    When the fascist Democrats argue for “gun control,” what they really mean is “control of the lives of the people.”

    “Les Miserables” — such folks — and indeed, all of us — have the Right of Revolution against a government which seeks to disarm us and prevent the exercise of that Right of Revolution. We are under no obligation whatever to surrender to fascist statism — or to any other brand of statism, for all that.

    I am reminded of New Hampshire Congressman Daniel Webster’s Dec. 9th, 1814 speech before Congress on the subject of military — and other — CONSCRIPTION of Americans into involuntary servitude…..

    “A military force cannot be raised, in this manner,” he said, “but by the means of a military force. If the administration has found that it cannot form an army without conscription, it will find, if it venture on these experiments, that it cannot enforce conscription without an army.

    “The Government was not constituted for such purposes. Framed in the spirit of liberty, and in the love of peace, it has no powers which render it able to enforce such laws. The attempt, if we rashly make it, will fail; and having already thrown away our peace, we may thereby throw away our Government.”

    See at —

    In like circumstances, the OhBummer dictatorship may move to seize what OhBummer dishonestly calls “military-style assault weapons.” Such lying should entail a LEGAL, unappealable and immediate death penalty — but leave that issue aside, for another time. I think that he will openly declare war on the American citizen who knows his own right of self-defense, and end as dictator Ceausescu and his filthy, murderous wife ended — they expired of lead poisoning in a Romanian gutter.

    In order to effectively steal these weapons, the OhBummer dictatorship will have to mobilize the terrorist Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms — and the US Army, to operate on American soil — for the first time since the Civil War, 1861 – 1865.

    I am convinced that OhBummer does want a race war — and a war between the “makers” and the “takers” — between the productive, self-supporting citizenry — and the lying, arrogant, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, axxwipe maggot Democrats, and the FleaBaggers and other left-wing trash who will fight alongside them.

    But he may find that the US Army will fire on HIM — rather than on their countrymen. That, I hope, will be the case, if this pathological President decides that he has the power and authority to disarm the American people by the theft of their weaponry.

    What kind of weaponry? Weaponry sufficient to the task clearly set forth by the Second Amendment to the US Constitution — the government’s “job description” — and by America’s founding “mission statement” — the Declaration of Independence, which incorporates neatly under the Ninth Amendment.

    Now, government cannot give or take human rights because 1] rights do not originate with government, and 2] there is no right to violate rights.

    Whether one believes that human rights originate by the benevolence of a “divine power” — the gift by a god — or that human rights are inherent in the simple fact of being human — there is no case for the idea that human rights “originate” with government.

    Who is government, after all? We are ruled by armed force and by fraud by lying, thieving, greedy-for-the-unearned, government hoodlums, gangsters, and thugs, by spies, spooks, and snoops, and by their sticky-fingered parasite constituents. And they are our “protectors” — just ask them and this predatory humanitarian Mafia will tell you so.

    Who protects us from our protectors? The outspoken American citizen under the First Amendment — and the armed citizen under the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. Taken together, they are — as they were forever and always intended to be — a revolutionary force.

    The Bill of Rights to the US Constitution recognizes and lists certain natural human rights — within the First Amendment to the US Constitution, among others — which calls-out the rights of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion.

    And not to digress, by the way — now that we are all able to publish on the internet, we are all now “journalists” — with the same First Amendment Constitutional protections enjoyed by ABC, CBS, NBC, et alia — without the necessity of being “licensed to publish” or “licensed to broadcast” by the armed-and-dangerous political freaks who rule us.

    The Second Amendment recognizes that the legendary “tree of liberty” is from time to time and in the words of Thomas Jefferson “refreshed by the blood of tyrants and patriots” — so that privately-owned weaponry SUFFICIENT TO THE TASK of overthrowing a tyrant, a despot, a dictator, a gangster, etc, is maintained free of confiscation or prohibition by the tyrant, the despot, the dictator, the gangster — or by the “parliamentary despotism” decried by Samuel Adams — etc, etc, ad nauseam.

    The professional DICTOCRATS are precisely aware of these Second Amendment facts — and for that reason they wish to attenuate or destroy the Second Amendment to the US Constitution — and then disarm and silence, those whom they would regulate, rob, plunder, and rule.

    In short, the Democrats fear an armed citizenry — they fear justice — and well they should, as they are enemies of the privately-employed, non-government taxpayers of America.

    Well, what of those “human rights” mentioned above?

    I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

    A slave is owned by someone other than himself — but a free man owns himself.

    The first article of private property is “the self” — and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.

    These rights —- The Rights of Man —- are the gift of nature or of nature’s god —- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

    Show me a Democrat or other leftist who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words.

    Meanwhile, hide the silverware — and your wallet — and your guns — from those lying, thieving, sticky-fingered fascist bxstxrds.

    Hide your children, too. Every dictator attempts to disarm his intended victims. He does it “for the children” — as if to say that dictatorship is good for children — and certainly not that dictators are good only as practice targets, for NY Governor Cuomo’s “deer hunters.”

    And one last thing. Show OhBummer the open contempt and disrespect — and disobedience — that he deserves.

    When you understand why the Second Amendment is the SECOND amendment (and not the ninth or seventeenth) you will gain some wisdom.

    • The pen [the First Amendment] may be mightier than the sword [the Second Amendment] — but the First Amendment will not survive without the Second Amendment.
      These principles go hand-in-hand, and for the same reasons.
      The only good dictator, like the only good censor, is a dead one.

  • I am not a member of the NRA. I am a gun owner. I find your opinion hysterical and totally lacking in any measure of persuasive quality. The NRA is not your enemy unless the Constitution is your enemy. Is it? If so, then you are my enemy. I am sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The Second Amendment already has been infringed upon far too many times. No more.

    Do you want to change the Constitution? Doesn’t matter. I have a natural right to defend myself. The Second Amendment doesn’t grant me that right. It only reminds Congress and state legislators that they are not to infringe upon it.

    People are calling Mr. Perry a fascist, really???? The real fascists are the people in the NRA and the gun lobby blocking the will of the 90%.

    • Jim

    • Andylit

      90% of news editors. But certainly not of the people. I suggest you look for some polling that counts more than a few hundred people, during the 90’s.

      • Doug

        Every poll shows Americans, including gun owners, overwhelming support commonsense gun safety reform.

        • You’re an IDIOT. A brainwashed looney tune. Do some research. You’re an embarrassment

        • So? This country isn’t a direct democracy, it’s a republic, precisely so people like you can’t demagogue your way to fascism.

          • Doug

            Commonsense gun reform isn’t fascism. Fascism is a RIGHT-WING ideology, fwiw. Is stopping citizens from owning nuclear weapons fascism, or is it commonsense?

          • Saying common sense (it’s not one word, barely literate demagogue) over and over does not making something common sense.

            Fascism is a left-wing ideology like all ideologies of total state control of society, except theocracy.

            No one said anything about nuclear weapons, demagogue… you’re clearly overmatched here.

            Putting people in camps for their opinions is fascism, do you agree with David Perry that doing so is okay? You seem to be very silent on that while you foam at the mouth about how guns are bad.

          • You’re a dolt, Doug. Nukes are weapons of mass destruction, no need for citizens to have them — and no good for governments to have them except that if the Hitlers and Stalins have them, then we had better be able to blast them to smithereens, as well, until an appropriate defense is available.

            As for fascists being “right-wing,” all the leftists seem to think so — but all of the authoritarians and totalitarians in history have had the identical collectivist ./ statist roots —- they are joined at the hip in their common contempt, enmity, and disdain for human rights.

        • That 90% is ridiculous tripe. Senators vote their constituents will. The only power the NRA has – is that they represent the voters.

        • I have a strong suspicion that what I think of as “commonsense gun safety reform” doesn’t reside on the same planet as your concept of “commonsense gun safety reform.”

          Just like “do it to protect the children” has nothing at all to do with passing laws that no one even tries to claim will protect anyone at all.

        • Kevin

          Excellent citations. Where exactly do I look up “Every Poll”? Do they have a website? And when you have to insert the qualifier “Common Sense”, you can rest assured whatever is being proposed is most certainly not common sense. If it were common sense, why would you have to put it in the title? Kind of a red flag, actually.

          Of course, when you explain the actual result of each “commonsense” rule they look at the pollster in disbelief and say no thank you.

          Commonsense laws to limit gun violence are as follows.

          Put criminals in jail instead of slapping them on the wrist.

          Report lunatics to NICS.

          Put repeat offenders back in jail and keep them there.

    • 90% …..hahahahaha!! You’re one the few idiots in the country who doesn’t realize what a giant load of BS that is

      USA Today / Pew Research: LESS THAN HALF of Americans upset about Senate gun-control measure not passing

    • You got your fake “90%” figure the same place where OhBummer got his —- you yanked it out of your axx. As well, if you don’t like the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, that constituion requires that you follow its amendment process if you want to amend it.

      But you cowardly fascist Democrats don’t want to go through the amendment process — you just want to twist the US Constitution into a frkn pretzel, to distort and to destroy its original intent. Hunting is fine if that’s what you want to do — but that was never the original intent of the Second Amendment. It isn’t in that document so that you can blast Bambi in the axx now and then, to make some venison tacos.

      It’s there so that you can blast Unkle Skum [every level of American government] in the axx whenever American government falls into the hands of gangsters, dictators, tyrants, usurpers, and / or criminals who cannot be despatched by immediate, peaceful means.

    • People were asked a question and they answered it. No one asked them what they *meant* by the answer they gave. Saying “I support back-ground checks” isn’t even in the same ball-park as any of the legislation proposed since we’ve got back-ground checks on all commercial sales in the US already.

    • First of all, the 90% is based on a false assumption that we don’t already have background checks. Brady Bill much?

      Second, even if it were legitimate, no amount of polling equates to a license to override the Constitution.

      Third, if 90% of the people really supported your position, the NRA wouldn’t scare anybody. Nobody will vote the way 5 million people want and ignore the way 100 million people want if they want to win elections. That means the politicians know that your 90% b.s. is exactly that.

    • Kevin

      Such a well-reasoned argument. Essentially you’re arguing that you are not the poopy head, I’m the poopy head? Is that about right? Oh, and please look up the word “Fascist” so you can have the slightest understand as to what you think you are arguing. Public school?

    “The U.S. Senate’s handling of a gun safety package was cowardly and contemptible … What kind of a governing body responds to a national crisis by refusing to even discuss it openly and publicly?”

    The Federal Government’s job is NOT to keep us safe. Dammit. The Federal Government’s job is TO PROTECT OUR LIBERTY. In voting down that bill, they were finally doing their job.


    ABOUT A YEAR AGO I began referring to OhBummer as a pathological flea, inasmuch as the majority of Americans see him as a bloodsucking fraud and a dishonest propagandist.

    In the first week of October, 2011, I bumped into a blog comment referring to the Occupy Wall Street gang as “the flea party” and I warned the author that I would STEAL his ingenious reference and use it wherever it could inflict the most damage on the enemies of the American taxpayers.

    On October 12, 2011, my favorite columnist, Ann Coulter — she a Christian and myself an atheist — published a column entitled “WINGLESS, BLOODSUCKING AND PARASITIC: MEET THE FLEA PARTY!” at her website.

    Clearly, things have gotten out of hand. This prairie fire of flea-mongers is raging out of control, wherever you turn.

    It’s a lot more people than just “the rich” who despise OhBummer and his rioting foot soldiers. I regard him and them with contempt.

    The Fleabaggers in OhBummer’s Flea Party [Occupy Wall Street and its metastasized little cancers in other cities] are the ideological blackshirts, brownshirts, redshirts and no-shirt thugs tasked and directed in their riots by OhBummer allies Michael Moore, David Astroturf Axelrod, and Van Jones, by, the SEIU, the Huffington Post, and OhBummer’s former employer, ACORN — and, naturally — by Barak Hussein Hushpuppy Hoover OhBummer, himself — with a cameo appearance by dopehead rugmuncher Roseanne Barr-The-Beheader.

    Oh, the corporations! Oh, the banks! Oh, BOO HOO! Most of these demonstrators and rioters have a wind-up key sticking out of the middle of their backs with OhBummer’s fingerprints all over it. He pooped all over their brains and they LOVED it, crying, “Oh! Oh! More poo, please! More poo!”

    This so-called “spontaneous, leaderless civil unrest” is a White House operation, conceived in the bowels of Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer’s fetid little mind — while he sat ruminating in the bowels of the White House, evacuating his bowels — and enacted by OhBummer’s chosen proxies, surrogates, cronies, and confederates.

    OhBummer and the OhBummer Wrecking Crew have been promoting envy [mental illness] and trying to shift blame to “Greedy Wall Street” and away from themselves — they who are what novelist Ayn Rand called “greedy for the unearned.”

    I advocate that the police arrest and jail every one of OhBummer’s rioting troops who obstructs traffic or trespasses on private property or in any way threatens or attempts to intimidate any of their critics or their intended victims.

    Yes. These are the lying, arrogant, GREEDY-FOR-THE-UNEARNED, bloodsxcking, tax-eating Democrat hoods, thugs, and gangsters. I advocate and I seek their destruction.

    There are still approximately 120 million privately-employed nongovernment taxpayers in America today, and while this pathological flea, Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, and his minions, are promoting street riots, I advocate that all 120 million of these privately-employed taxpayers stage a riot on the bridge of OhBummer’s nose. That skunk wants race riots and class-warfare riots — and he should get a riot that will make history.

    Meanwhile, back at the hacienda…. Source: the Infernal Revenue Service — In 2009, the top 1% of earners paid almost 37% of all Federal income taxes, the top 25% of earners paid over 87%, and the top 50% paid just under 98% of all Federal income taxes. Check this out at, “who pays income taxes.”

    And so to the President of the United States of America and to the so-called “99-percenters” in OhBummer’s street-gang Fleabaggers who claim victimhood — go blow smoke up your own axxes.

      More like Moron Label. Your cute phrases don’t change the fact that our country has a gun violence problem.

      • The violent crime rate in Piers Morgan’s UK is eight times higher than in the US. Most Americans live extremely safe lives, but CNN does everything they can to generate unnecessary fear.

    I would love to go gitmo, and introduce all the islamo nazis to their 72 virgins. I could close gitmo in a couple hours. Something obummer will never do.


    OhBummer is a pathological b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers.

    Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled.

    He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system — the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers — and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House — and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

    And — now widely seen for what he is — the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him — and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” — they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.

    He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious — a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.

    He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.

    Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

    He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden — indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.

    He declares himself the post-racial leader — “Let me be clear!” he intones — and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.

    He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda — and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through.

    Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer — “The Mistake of ‘08” — the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc — the community agitator for the OhBummer Wrecking Crew — the fascist Fleabagger-in-Chief — the closet Muslim with the mix-and-match morality — the King of The Republic of Lies — and America’s first and last Arab president.

    Now count your fingers.

    “How stands the city on this winter night? More prosperous, more secure, and happier than it was eight years ago. But more than that: After 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge, and her glow has held steady no matter what storm. And she’s still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home.”

    This guy needs some anger management. Dude calm down.

  • B. Park

    Apparently, Mr Perry, you are someone who detests the concepts that this nation was founded on. One of those basic beliefs is that for any nation to remain free the people must be armed. If the people are passive every government will become totalitarian. It is only through an active vigilence that any people remain free. Our constitution mandates that the Federal government have no jusridiction over the keeping and bearing of arms. As it says, the Federal Government is not even allowed to dabble on the “fringes” of it. But I assume you detest our Contitution anyway.

      Or when you finally push us too far. Your choice.

    • Gotham Knight

      Your reasoning is rather comical given the fact that gun deaths are a small fraction of those killed by other means each year. Guns scare you because they represent a responsibility not to wet your pants when you think about defending yourself and your family’s freedom to not be at the mercy of others desires to hurt you or enslave you. You find it easier to change your pants regularly and live in a state of fear.

      • Dougie actually isn’t afraid of guns — he just wants all the Democrats to be armed with guns and ammo paid for by conservative and libertarian taxpayers —- and he wants conservatives and libertarians disarmed. I advocate his destruction.

    • Dougie, you silly goose! “Enough” would be when you take so many rounds that you die of lead poisoning before you bleed to death. Stop blaming the innocent for the actions of the guilty, sport.

  • We don’t need Gitmo for Mr. Perry. His advertisers will jack him or lose business. How do you like that Dave. We don’t need a death camp third hand (unlike you) to deal with your sort, probably you’re dead already. Any advertiser who supports your paper supports you, and by inference, agrees with your view.
    All we have to do is not shop, buy or associate with your paper’s supporters. It’s a weapon and not all weapons go boom. They can be used quietly and with impunity (unlike your weapons of imprisonment and torture). But that’s OK. You can go on disability from Obama, you being feeble minded and all that.
    We actually owe you a vote of thanks. I’ve always held that liberals think that way and now an editor has just confirmed it in writing.

    The constitution says right to own arms, but that doesn’t mean Bubba down the street should own nuclear weapons. Why does Bubba need a machine gun? Neither belong in the hands in the average citizen.

    • Machine guns have been outlawed since 1934. Fully automatic handguns or rifles have been outlawed since 1968.

      No one has said individuals should have the right to own nuclear weapons.

      You know you’re looking like a tool, right?

      • Doug

        Which explains all the shootings involving AK-47s and AR 15s.

        • You do know that AK-47s and AR-15s cannot be legally sold in this country unless they are semiautomatic? And that modifying them to fire full auto is also illegal?

          • Doug

            Semiautomatics are still machine guns, so machine guns aren’t banned.

          • Are you seriously this stupid. Semi-automatics are not machine guns.

          • Machine guns and semi-automatics are ummm not the same thing.

          • Thanks for pointing that out to Doug. He needs the education!

          • Patrick Chester

            Doug is incapable of learning, though perhaps lurkers will be helped by some useful information.

          • Dougie, you silly goose, a semiautomatic fires one round per trigger pull, and, therefore, is not a “machine gun.” Machine guns would be OK for Americans to have when dealing with a gangster government, however — the sort of government which you clearly prefer.

          • Patrick Chester

            Actually, no. Machine guns fire full automatic (hold the trigger down and the weapon will keep firing until trigger release) so a semi-automatic weapon (fires once per pull of the trigger) cannot be a machine gun no matter what you were told to parrot.

            Really, you need to find a better source of talking points, drone. Your masters just don’t respect you if they expect you to cheerfully recite ludicrous statements like yours. Poor little automaton.

        • If you don’t know what a machine gun is, maybe you should find out.

          Go to the local range and rent a couple different guns, shoot them, find out how they work. Find out why we’re laughing at you for what you just typed.

    • Straw man arguments. Machine guns are already heavily regulated. BTW, the Constitution does not prohibit those items, Why does the thought of firearms make you run around holding your skirts up and yelling “EEK”?

    I really do think this article is satire, or Mr. Perry has some real mental problems to advocate sending those who disagree with his position on guns to a concentration camp. To seriously desire to do away with the judicial system and the Constitution all in the name of saving the Constitution is rich. Given real authority over the lives of individuals, Mr. Perry, if indeed he is serious about his desires, would have likely done well as a member of the Aufseherinnen.

  • mbg

    Mr. Perry. I have a right to defend my family and myself. What needs to be done, and the NRA is correct in this, is to upgrade the security of our schools. As is now stands, there is nothing stopping a terrorist from walking into just about any school in our country and blowing it up. Nothing. Get beyond firearms – there is a greater threat. Think for once, then write.

  • Elbee

    According to a recent Gallup poll, only 4% of citizens consider (more) gun control an important issue. The oft-quoted 90% is 90% of 4%.

  • I guess this puts and end to vacations in Colorafo for all the hunters and skiers I know. Congrats to the Publisher.

  • I love how this clown quotes liberal editorials from newspapers as if they were the voice of America. It’s no different than the liberal hacks saying “90% of Americans” support background checks. I wonder how many of those polled are aware of the NICS system already in place. Why am I wasting my time commenting on this filth? Had it not been for a link on Drudge, I would not even be aware of the existence of Aurora Sentinel or this particular jackass…and my life would have been better for it.

  • Clearly, if the Democratic Senate can NOT push thru the gun control legislation: 90% of Americans either do NOT support it…..or it is NOT an issue for which support will change peoples’ votes.

    The idea that DEMOCRAT senators are kissing the butt of some gun lobby is silly.

    If these Democrats (who happen to be in fairly conservative states) thought for ONE minute that voting for the measure would secure their re-election……you know they would vote for it.

    • Didn’t used to be a Democrat-Republican issue. Used to be that it was a bipartisan issue where Democrats were likely to be NRA members, gun owners, hunters, and in touch with their constituents. Suddenly it’s become an Us vs. Them issue and it’s not the Republicans who have radicalized, it’s the Democrats who have changed and become inflexible and monolithic on the issue.

  • Lots of posts. I guess the gist is that Perry is just another brain deal liberal moron without two brain cells that actually communicate. A pitiful little troll afraid of his own shadow, and completely incapable of understanding anything that hasn’t been downloaded directly into his brain by his left wing masters. Sad really, if there weren’t so many just like him, ready to give up their’s and everyone else’s freedom and rights out of complete ignorance. He must be one of the most blissfully happy people in the country.

  • nifty

    Nobody was asking for us to give up our guns when the kids at Kent State were getting shot. When you look a the laws passed under the Brady bill that eventually expired that did nothing to stem violence you have to wonder where their logic is based? If I were to inform this writer that for the next 4 elections every supreme court justice, president, and both houses of congress would fall directly in the hands of his political enemies would he be comfortable with the authorities granted to government under this President and the one prior? I doubt it, I saw their contentious writings concerning the patriot act and then watched them line up like sheep when this president made the laws even stronger.

  • Senator CO

    The only cowardly US Senators are the ones who voted against the U.S. Constitution. You know a story is BS when the quote the “90% of Americans want gun registration.” They never quote the source and question asked.

    In order to exercise her first amendment right, Dave Perry, needs to submit a form for approval to speak and write and he need to register his words. We hold the right to revoke his first amendment right for any reason. In fact, this article is a sign of being mentally unstable. No words for you, Ms. Perry!

  • Kevin

    This article has the tone of a 13 year old girl whose life is “ruined” because she didn’t get asked to the Junior High Prom. First off, get a dictionary and look up the word “Corrupt”, since you obviously have no clue what it means. Corruption does not mean opposition to what every baby boomer with a gray pony tail and a Prius wants.

    So only 5 million (not 4.5 million) of the 76 million gun owners in this country joined the NRA? So what? I’ve been a gun owner for 9 years and only joined the NRA 5 months ago, precisely because of blathering idiots like the author. How many Americans work? According to the BLS for April 2013, about 155 million. How many are in labor unions? Again, according to the BLS, approximately 14.4 million. Hmmm…that number is startlingly close to the same percentage as gun owners who are members of the NRA. To paraphrase the author, “You know how many Americans don’t answer to the labor boss goons? 299 million Americans”. At least joining the NRA is voluntary.

    And speaking of misleading, how many people will be misled by the author’s insistence that since other newspaper editors agree with him, and they are from “Red” states, everybody in the country must be aligned against the NRA. I live 2 hours south of Dallas and know, like everyone else in Texas, that the Dallas Morning News is located in one of the few “blue” counties in Texas and has a liberal editorial slant. Same with the Florida Sun Sentinel. You may as well quote the Austin American Statesman, one of the most liberal editorial pages in the country, let alone Texas. Whoops, the Austin American Statesman took a much more measured (some would say professional) approach to the subject. I know because I subscribe. That, Mr. Perry is the definition of misleading. You can’t even lie well. The very best part of this article is that the NRA will likely highlight it to potential new members, and they may well end up with 6 million members this time next year. That is the only likely effect you will have had. Congratulations. RLTW!

    Does the constitution give me the right to own a gun? Does the word ‘hunting’ appear anywhere in the constitution.

    Anyone against gun ownership is against the Bill of Rights insisted on my ALL the ratifying states.

    BTW – I do not own a gun, but it is my right to own a gun if I choose. Driving a car is a privilege but owning a gun is a right.

  • Mr. Fairy-Perry: You should be ’rounded up’ and sent to intelligence testing. You obviously have some severe problems with intelligence and logic. Your ‘blog’ proves you are seriously deficient in those areas.

  • How much did Bloomberg promise you for this?

  • I wonder if the author is as vociferously against other special interests groups that are made up of relatively small percentage of Americans:


    Are you against violent and extortionist UNIONS, too, Perry?

    Didn’t think so…..

  • Aurora Mom

    Well if 90% of Americans demand gun registration (i.e. future confiscation) then Dave Perry should be happy since the Senators who voted for the Constitution will be voted out in 2014. I’ll come back to check on Dave.

  • MNHawk

    I just can’t comprehend why low information journalism outlets are going bankrupt, one after another.

    Of course this particular low information journalist hack, known as Dave Perry, can’t even comprehend a simple point. If the Senate voted against the majority, wouldn’t that be a brave thing to do? Isn’t the coward’s way out to put the finger to the wind, and see which way it’s blowing? Or maybe JournoHack, Dave Perry, isn’t quite the majority he thinks he is?

  • Ilio

    Mr Perry needs to find himself on the working end of a good solid baseball bat til it cracks open to reveal NO BRAIN, only slimy black ooze that whispers “Evil” if you listen close.

  • Well Davie P., personally I believe in and support our constitution, a straight forward, easy to read and understand document, -if you don’t let the lawyers and politicians redefine every word. For example: “..the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” I understand that don’t you?

    By the way there’s another simple one: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; …” I strongly believe and support that right as well. Hence I support your right to publish the above column and the utterly absurd statements therein. Freedoms protected by our Constitution, including but not limited to freedom of speech, are for every American, not just the elite, for everyone, including useful idiots.

  • morganfrost

    If I really stand for the Constitution… I should be stripped of my second amendment rights, and should also waive my first, fourth, fifth and sixth amendment rights. Did I miss any? That is what you’re arguing, isn’t it? Sick freak.

  • Dude from nj

    I just joined the NRA due to this inane column. SEcond Amendment buddy. Read it.

  • “If you really stand behind the spirit of the American Constitution,”


    What a logic train wreck.

    If you stand behind the spirit of the Constitution……………….give up your rights??

    Really????? just wow…..I think this column is the equivalent of an alligator death roll…..a loud and messy hissy fit thrown as the window of opportunity for the orgasmic leftist delight of a gun ban closes…..

  • merkinmuffy

    The American Left has gone mad!!!

  • Ron Poole

    The only thing that protects your first ammendment right is the second ammendment. When the right to keep and bear arms is lost, all other rights will be taken away too!. Then you will be a subject to a tyrant or even worse you may become a slave.

  • Tiredoflies

    Perhaps Mr. Perry doesn’t know that there is a process for amending the Constitution. If he really believes that 90 percent of Americans think like he does, it should be a breeze. Put up or shut up, Mr. Perry.

  • Aristotle

    before freedom of speech and the press are taken by govt, guns in the hands of law abiding citizens must be taken. David is obviously young and naïve. As he grows older, perhaps he will study history and exchange foolish rants for wisdom….perhaps.

  • The reason Obama was so infuriated that his gun bills didn’t pass the Senate is because he couldn’t fire up his election machine and target the House Republicans, who would have killed it, in the midterms. He knows full well that was his only intention. This isn’t about gun control. It’s about power. Just like immigration reform isn’t about immigration as much as it is securing democratic votes…at the expense of bankrupting our nation.

  • Dave Perry, you are a vicious and dangerous man! Your America would not be free, it would be a dictatorship. You call those who think different than you cowards. Your ideas are not shared by the majority of Americans as you claim! So you are also a liar! Chicago, no guns but most gun-related crimes! Switzerland most guns, but lowest gun-related crimes! Go on line and check it out, you charlatan!

  • CharlieTX

    And someone made this guy the editor of a newspaper? This is just more evidence of why newspapers are another of those things that are dying off because they are mostly run by liberal extremists.

  • bozymoto

    The NRA exists specifically to prevent innocent American citizens from ever being marched into concentration camps at the tip of a government bayonet.

    Dave Perry’s position: March NRA members into concentration camps at the tip of a government bayonet, and let them rot in squalor for all eternity, because they dare to challenge his worldview.

    If enhanced background and sanity checks are in order for anything, perhaps it’s time they were enacted for news editors.

  • There are 5 million NRA members. You want to round us all up? How are you any different from the Nazis? Cowards like YOU (have you ever seen pics of Goebbels and Himler?) have always used big Govt. to do their dirty work; I’ve always suspected that BEING a coward is what makes people like you love belief systems like today’s liberalism; it’s your way or lock-em-up. Thank God that The Founders foresaw the need for Freemen to be able to defend themselfs from Totalitarian Cowards.

  • Carlos Santos

    What an uninformed dullard you are Mr. Perry. As an proud honorable veteran, defender of our constitutional rights, and an NRA member, I can only pray for people like Dave Perry. I am accustomed to the hate-mongering on the left, but it is rare to see so much verbal diarrhea and mindless boiler plate vomit coming from one person whose opinion really isn’t worth squat. Good day and GOD BLESS YOU.

    • Carlos Santos

      that would be “honorably discharged veteran”.

  • So I ask you.. Are you sir going to put 5 Million American Citizens into prison? I am a USAF Veteran for nearly 23 years before retiring. Over the years I have seen many anti-gun, anti-firearm attempts over the years but now you are making it personal.. your accusing me of a crime that I never committed and saying that the NRA is a terrorist organization, and calling me a terrorist.

    Show some Cajones.. (in celebration of Cinco De Mayo) and come on over here to Portland OR. Have a policeman arrest me.. But you better have facts behind you instead of your emotional editorial voice. Hiding behind the 1st Amendment to accuse people of a crime while denouncing their rights under the 2nd Amendment is pure Cowardice in your Character. Plane and simple


  • Ilio

    So this pieceofshit “journalists” summation is that if other rag newspapers have the same opinion as his slimyass, they must be correct!? Wow…..way to keep your perspective there, asswhipe. SERIOUSLY hope this miscreant piece of human debris meets his maker soon, at the end of a rope, a club, or anything less quick than being shot in his empty head. The evil that slime like this guy spread is an infection we MUST rid this nation of once and for all. It may be the ONLY good the Obummer administration ever brings about, but it’s time, past time, for a cleansing. Morons like this should be first in line behind the politicians bent on their own power grab while destroying the founding principles that made this nation great in the first place and allowed us to accidentally spawn his ilk. Adios muchacho, you’re like a herpes virus on the face of humanity and you need to be eradicated.

  • Sick kid … WTF? Has the Left lost all sense of morality…

  • Torqued

    What a stupid bag of pus filled guts you are.

  • jgalt6

    This loon, Perry, is too stupid to realize that his screed will only bring more members to the NRA. Like all libtards and further left, he equates freedom with terrorism. Notice, although he mentions the muslim murderers in Boston, he does not criticize them or call for extreme actions against them, or any other muslim terrorists. The fact is that the leftists have made common cause with the muslim jihadists, who they see as aiding in the destruction of the evil American empire. To be fair, Obama likewise gives the muslim terrorists a pass, even refusing to call terrorism, terrorism. However, he has an excuse, as he was born and raised a muslim, and his allegiance is still to islam, no matter how the MSM tries to hide that fact. They would rather bow to islam than be forced to endure Christianity in their midst. Oh the horrors!

  • whatruthinking81

    Thank God the people who are commenting on this garbage can think for themselves. This article is lie after terrible lie from an anti-gun coward who thinks that writing this left wing propaganda will make the the lies come true. Get the real facts, gun free zones are where 95% of shooting sprees take place. Criminal gang shootings account for most of the gun violence. Only a tiny fraction of lawfull gun owning citizens ever commit a crime with a gun! Wake up America!! Dave Perry no need to come to my house looking for protection when you are thrown to the wolves and have no way to defend yourself. Its better to have a gun and not need it than not have a gun and WISH you had one. To your cronies Isay “Come and take it!”

  • Who the hell is Dave Perry and why does he matter? He’s a glorified blogger from what I gather. Maybe he hits the bong too much?

  • WiseAZ

    The majority of Americans don’t want more gun laws… they want the ones that we have enforced… And what is your view on abortions, Mr. Perry?

  • oldpink

    Really now?
    Thanks for making it perfectly clear exactly what the anti-gun left really is all about: imprisoning fellow Americans for opposing your agenda.
    I would also point out that he wants no such punishment for Islamic terrorists.
    And the media mouthpieces sit around and wonder what has happened to their circulations, while their livelihoods circle the drain into oblivion?

    • The leftists aren’t really “anti-gun.” They want you to pay for THEIR weapons and ammo with YOUR taxes — while they disarm YOU. Destroy them.

  • Sorry Mr. Perry, they are laughing at YOU.

    Because nothing feels as good as defeating a fascist.

  • lazarus062268

    Whoa! Kill the fetuses,, but label me, a legal gun owner and retired LEO a terrorist? Hide behind your pen buddy, and hope this never goes reality. You are a sick communist. We need to send a black gang to your house for a visiting home invasion. Wonder how you’d fare, commie? Guns don’t kill people, people do. I spent 30 years watching it. Most of it could have been prevented if victims had owned a gun.

  • Doug

    The NRA is enabling the deaths of children everywhere. Our kids can’t even go to school without fear of being shot, and our schools are the safest place for our children. 10% are dictating laws for the 90% that support commonsense gun safety reform. The Talibon only wishes they had that power.

    • Demagogues like you have been killing brain cells and furthering fascism for thousands of years.

    • Name one law that would have prevented Sandy Hook. There are none.

    • My rights are not up for a vote. If were voting to take away rights, I have a few that I want to put on a ballot.

    • Hey. Doug, you lying fascist sack of shxt — like OhBummer, you pulled that 90% figure out of your axx — and by the way, even if there were any such 90%, that 90% does not cancel the US Constuition, not even a comma or a period — you’re required to proceed through the amendment process if you want to change the US Constitution.

    • Here’s a lollipop, Doug. Now go play in the traffic.

    • I know Doug, right? It’s like MAGIC.

    • dupkaman

      More children drown in swimming pools than are killed by guns. Perhaps you should put the swimming pool manufacturers in Guantanamo.

  • Warrior One

    About 80 million gun owners in America and roughly 300 million guns give or take. If 3% get pissed and say enough, that’s a 2.1 million man army with about 7.8 million firearms.

    • The American peoiple have every level of American government outnumbered ad out gunned.

      1] This is a very good thing.

      2] The Democrats are trying to change this situation radically in favor of an all-powerful, centralized government.

      3] They’re using YOUR TAX MONEY to do this.

      4] We don’t have to take this shxt FROM ANYONE, much less from a predatory, toixic government which pretends to give a rat’s axx about us and our human rights.

      What “human rights?”

      I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

      A slave is owned by someone other than himself — but a free man owns himself.

      The first article of private property is “the self” — and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.

      These rights —- The Rights of Man —- are the gift of nature or of nature’s god —- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

  • Marcus Johnson

    Almost every article I have read on this subject always states the following: “the 90 percent of Americans wanting expanded gun registration”, yet I have never seen anyone post who took the poll, when it was taken, where, the +/- margin of error, etc. It is if it is just made up because it sounded too good to be true. Somebody please show me the poll.

    I am not a gun owner but went into a store where I now live in Colorado and the owner was nice and informed. This is very interesting, he stated that in all the years backround checks have been the law he has never, not one time been contacted by any law enforcement officials in response to a failed backround check. In his opinion the only way you can fail a check is through fraud, by not answering the questions as you should. Yet not one time has he been contacted nor has he heard of anyone that failed a check being arrested for such responses. Sounds a little like how we enforce illegal immigration. If they are not enforcing current law, how will they enforce new laws? Just asking.

  • Vic Karras

    Nothing like the Leftist press crying and screaming and demanding that they get their 1st Amendment rights when it comes to their points of view but when others have a differing view than they do they get to practice what is known as “selective censorship”, that is reporting what they want when they want if it is convenient for them and if they print it is usually buried way back in a separate section or something like A100 of the first part. This is the same kind of strategy that Pravda and Isvestia used in the Soviet Union as the official papers of a communist regime. They’re all in it together and make no mistake about it.

  • libsrid10ts1

    The people who want gun control are the people who have had little to no exposures to guns. Those that have been around guns respect them and the responsibility of owning them. Those that have no respect for human life are the ones killing people, by any means possible. Taking guns off the streets and responsible gun owners will no change the mentality of evil people who wish to do others harm. Don’t try to cure the headache by cutting off the head!

  • dookhh

    How big is Gitmo again? Can it really hold the 4.5 million NRA members?
    Or is it just the typical “tiny error” that comes from an XFL who appears to be less than delighted that his own party wouldn’t support the bill?
    Blame the NRA all you want, if red state voters didn’t care about their senators vote, they would have supported the bill.

  • roberto blanco

    The zero said US guns causing violence in Mexico …. I talked it over with my guns they swore they were NOT able to cut off heads, torture & beat to death, hang, or otherwise (bats, tire irons, swords, bow & arrow) kill mexicans. I believe them, like Perry, they dont have an opposing thumb or brain.

  • R Sweeney

    Liberals can best be thought of as children who never grow up. They expect someone ELSE to take care of them, someone ELSE to tell them what to do and not do and when.

    They see the government as the loving protective parent they need.

    Wow. I’m an Eagle Scout, and NRA member, I support gay marriage, I’m pro choice, and even pro legalization of pot. I think you have a skewed view of what NRA members look like. Sad that you can be so intolerant. Again, more of the people like yourself who excursive “selective tolerance”, where you claim to own tolerance and acceptance of others, as long as you agree wit them. You are a very sad human to write such an article, demonizing we who know that we have a right to protect our families with the same means as the evil in this world who think they can take what they didn’t earn and have no value of human life. You are a coward and a pathetic ink stain. We have rights in this country, not given to us by our leaders or that are voted on. It doesn’t’ matter how many people want those rights to change, we DO NOT live in a democracy. We are a Republic that is guided by a piece of paper. Not by popular vote. I just hope you are constant in your tirades and write an article on how all of the mass shooters and terrorists that have stuck us in the last 10 years have all been medicated liberals.

  • bruce

    Yeah, go ahead and skip due process you Nazi.

  • For years now, Leftists like this Dave Perry demonize beautiful, decent people like my mom for being in the tea party or NRA for power. Yet he’s the racist (she doesn’t have a hint of racism, ever) Yet he’s the very type of guy who would have us up against the wall and shot. The Left, in general, is the enemy; it really is.

  • rejecttyranny

    Perry, I guess you still do not “get it”. Legal gun owners and constitution lovers like myself, DO NOT CARE WHAT YOU THINK. We also know that the majority of Americans, gun ownerrs or not, do not care what you radicals in the minority think about this either. Get over it, the Republic has spoken and you LOSE!

  • Jack

    And sniveling little fascist twits like you are why we keep our guns. Come and take them you little beta-male prig.

HE IS THE LEFTS USEFUL IDIOT.. AND I SAY THAT KINDLY.

    It’s sad that so many Americans are enslaved to a 300 year old document. It’s even sadder that these people have political power. I’m not saying the entire constitution is wrong, but the founders lived in a different world than today. The weapon of choice back then was muskets that shot bullet a minute.

    • So YOU should get to pick and chose which parts of the Constitution should be kept? I don’t think so. MOLON LABE.

    • rejecttyranny

      Old argument that simply does not apply to the topic at hand…move along troll.

    • The musket of 1776 is the M-16 of today. That means we should all be able to go out and buy a fully automatic assault rifle.

    • Duard

      It’s because of that 300 year old document that we’re not enslaved. Yes, muskets shot a bullet a minute, and there wasn’t any internet, and black folks couldn’t own guns, and there weren’t any automobiles or fast food places. It’s a whole different world now, but the Constitution still works.

    • you can use a musket when an intruder comes in with a full auto… good luck with that!

    • Yes, so sad! We should all get to pick and chose the parts of the constitution we like.

    • Kenai

      Ignorance seems to be the hallmark of libturds. Here’s a fact for you, Dougy. It’s a 18th century quote from French Marshall, Maurice de Saxe.

      “Light infantry should be able to fire six shots a minute, but under the stress of battle, four shots should be allowed for”.

      Muskets were the original ‘spray and pray’ assault gun of the day. Colonial militia were more commonly equipped with the far more accurate rifle which had a much lower rate of fire. Since the militiamen couldn’t fire as rapidly they tended to choose high value targets such as officers, NCOs and medics. That was considered very ‘unsporting’ by the British who declared that anyone captured on the battlefield with a rifle was to be hung.

      Get your head out of your a$$, Dougy.

    • Patrick Chester

      Sorry, but the rights protected by the constitution are not limited by the technology available back then.

      It’s sad you blindly parrot such lies and either believe it or hope people are stupid enough to fall for it.

  • Standing up for the constitution makes you a coward? Is that what liberal logic has taught you Mr. Perry? “The U.S. Senate’s handling of a gun safety package was cowardly and contemptible … What kind of a governing body responds to a national crisis by refusing to even discuss it openly and publicly?” You mean like the way Obamacare was openly and publicly discussed? The way it was crafted behind closed doors and rammed through in the dead of night? You mean THAT was courageous? Why is it that government always handles a problem by creating more government and infringing on our rights? The problem isn’t guns. The problem is lack of enforcement of the laws on the criminals. You can take all the guns away and what will be left? Criminals with guns. This ginned up crisis has nothing to do with making anyone safe. It’s about control. Government control. If they were serious about their rhetoric about saving the life of one child, then start with abortion. Till then your fake outrage falls on deaf ears. Cover the Gosnell trial if you dare. Leave the rest of law abiding Americans alone. Go study the Constitution and some history. Oops I said the “C” word twice. I’ll probably be put on a terror watch list now. Funny how what used to be pure insanity, like taking away constitutional rights, is now touted as the new mainstream. Maybe they should take away the freedom of the press. See how fast you change your tune. Then you’ll be all for constitutional rights because it affects you directly. One thing you have to remember, government didn’t give us our fundamental rights, God did. Only God can take them away. Government isn’t God.

    I just arrived home from the NRA annual meeting in Houston. Mr. Perry should have at least visited. He would have seen a vivid cross-section of the United States; all races, both sexes, Dems and Repubs, gays and straights. There’s no way they would submit to a one-way trip Gitmo.

        • Lance Uppercut

          You’re absolutely right, I wasn’t there… but having just read a report on the show it confirmed for me exactly what I suspected – that the NRA crowd, who represent a paltry 1.5% of the national population, are an extremely homogenous group.

          (And you can spare me any “liberal mainstream media” comments… the BBC are probably the most respected and objective media organisation in the world, and it’s a very balanced write-up).

          “much to say about something you know little about”

          Funny, I could say the exact same thing about all the gun-nuts repeating the phrase “Molon Labe” (correctly or incorrectly) after every post.

  • dupkaman

    I’d like to see Mr Perry try to send me and my fellow NRA members to Guantano.

    Send me to Gitmo…? I think not and being armed as I am, you won’t “send” me anywhere without a price in blood being paid.

    So, if you feeling froggy, by all means stop talking and jump. We are ready and waiting any time you are.

    TO: DAVE PERRY, Aurora Sentinel editor,
    You have now joined the cadre of facists like Castro, Stalin, Hitler and Mao.
    All, in common, they first disarmed the populace and then “had their way”.
    Your petty, slimy hate mongering is not worthy of further attention.

  • Jack Klompus

    Come on Perry, waiting on you. Come and take them. Oh wait that’s right, fascist little beta-males like you hide behind state and gov’t power to do your bidding. You’re so typical. Pathetic little spineless vermin. Come on fascist boy, come to the door.

  • Doug

    #ShameOnYou became the most trended topic of the year so far on twitter. Polls show 90% support commonsense gun control. Protests have sprung up across the nation in reaction to congress’ inaction. This is a national peaceful uprising, we are showing what we can do without guns. The pen is mightier than the sword.

    • This is astro turf.

      • Doug

        90% is not astro turf. Mothers taking days off work to protect their children is not astro turf.

        • Scotty G.

          90% is not astroturf, but it is BS.

        • Barry Hirsh


    • KyawGyiKwa

      I guess your mad the Republicans and the NRA stood up for freed Black’s against against the KKK and southern Democrats.

          • So you’re going to admit that it’s wrong to disarm minorities now?

            Right, didn’t think so.

    • KyawGyiKwa

      Yeah, NRA has added a MILLION more members since Sandy Hook. 70 MILLION more guns have been sold since Obama The Idiot was sworn the second time.

      A gun is being sold one PER SECOND currently in the United States. You are right about an uprising springing up, just not the one you think.

      You and your ilk WILL NOT take the guns in this country, not without a second Civil War that will make the first look like a warm spring day. Did you enjoy Boston? That was nothing compared to what could be coming.

    • Yeah, this is the same “90%” as the “90% of crime guns in Mexico that came from US gun stores” — the 90% that turned out to be <10% when all the layers of lies were finally unearthed. Your particular 90% is also a lie — it was ONE poll done during the CLINTON administration, BEFORE there were ANY Brady Bill background checks.

      Don't try those tired old talking-point lies with us, we know a whole lot more than you do about this subject, and (unlike you) we can cite actual sources.

  • Dave Perry is the sorriest excuse for a writer I have ever had the displeasure of wasting minutes of my time to read. Not only that, he is a sorry excuse for a human being. Perry is the kind of liberal a-hole that throws out shock statements to attract more readers to his his articles, only to disappoint them, as is probably the case with any female who has the misfortune to spy his tiny manhood. Come out from behind that writing instrument, sir, and address some of us NRA members directly, face-to-face, and see if you don’t discover that you’re more mouse than man.

  • Larry Fields

    Sanctimonious Dave thinks that the rights spelled out in the Constitution do not apply to those with whom he strongly disagrees. I think that Dave would be happier if he moved to North Korea, which does not have an organization like the NRA. So much for the myth of Lefty tolerance.

    The libs have always stated there true purpose of taking our freedom to chose. They have been getting ahead of themselves by forgetting to take the guns first then steal the rest. That has been the way of every oppressive government takeover.

        You’re a fool to think we lack intelligence or we’re somehow ‘crazy.’ That’s OK though, it’s better that you underestimate us.

      • LTDocJetJock

        No, a locked and loaded weapon deters gutless simps (American liberals and their sycophantic following) from attempting to take them. There’s two ways liberals will get their brains (what little there might be) blown out — 1) attempting to confiscate our legally owned weapons under this false premise you all have adopted, and 2) we don’t like you. A pretty nasty combination, seeing as how we are the ones with the guns. I dare to you to describe me or my circle of gun owning friends and family as mental defectives — such a folly would demonstrate the depths of liberal ignorance, fear, and vanity. Come take them, petunia. Do it today.

    Mr. Perry,

    As an NRA member, lifetime Colorado resident, Constitution advocate will send in each year along with my annual NRA dues and additional membership fee in your name.
    The Senate members didn’t fear backlash from the NRA so much as they understand that their law abiding, freedom loving citizens would vote them down next election. The NRA is just a conduit for citizens to organize through and I am happy to see it work.
    Thanks for the encouragement,

    “You darkeners of counsel, who would make the property, lives and religion of millions depend on the evasive interpretations of musty parchments; who would send us to antiquated charters of uncertain and contradictory meaning, to prove that the present generation are not bound to be victims to cruel and unforgiving despotism, tell us whether our pious and generous ancestors bequeathed to us the miserable privilege of having the rewards of our honesty, industry, the fruits of those fields which they purchased and bled for, wrested from us at the will of men over whom we have no check.

    “Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, What should be the reward of such sacrifices? Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, and supplicate the friendship, and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth?

    “If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom – go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”


    “Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty. Dismissing, therefore, the justice of our cause, as incontestable, the only question is, What is best for us to pursue in our present circumstances?”


    “It does not take a majority to prevail….but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”


    “Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.”

  • Mr Dave Perry: You give up your guns and put a sign in your window “Gun Free Zone” and see how long it is before you are robbed. The NRA is the only organization that DOES keep us from the tyranny of the Left and their zest to take away our 2nd Amendment rights. No one is forcing you carry a weapon Mr Perry. Don’t take away our rights to carry one also. Gun control isn’t about controlling crime. We have laws on the books but the Left wants to use the excuse of more gun control laws to take our right of self defense away from us. Gun control doesn’t work. Chicago is a perfect example. The tightest gun laws in the country yet few, if any felons who are caught with them go back to prison. ???

  • Perry knows nothing of our history or the world’s history. His freedom of the press would disappear if there were no 2nd amendment…

Complex, I know, it sucks to actually think of what your words REALLY MEAN.

      The second amendment was not designed to protect us against our nation, it was designed to protect our nation against you….



    OhBummer is a pathological b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers.

    Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled.

    He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system — the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers — and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House — and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

    And — now widely seen for what he is — the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him — and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” — they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.

    He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious — a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.

    He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.

    Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

    He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden — indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.

    He declares himself the post-racial leader — “Let me be clear!” he intones — and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.

    He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda — and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through.

    Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer — “The Mistake of ‘08” — the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc — the community agitator for the OhBummer Wrecking Crew — the fascist Fleabagger-in-Chief — the closet Muslim with the mix-and-match morality — the King of The Republic of Lies — and America’s first and last Arab president.

    Now count your fingers.

  • As a proud NRA member, I won’t be losing any sleep tonight over your threats Dave. Here’s a better idea…we’ll split the country in half.

    • GunLovingLiberal

      Agreed, you get the South East, it already is filled with uneducated people, failing schools and roads, and all that, so you don’t have to wait as long to see your wonderful world with no cops, prisons military, hospitals, schools, roads, sewers, water, electricity, or any of that other socialist crap. We get the nukes (publicly funded commie stuff you know), and we will even take on all the debt your party racked up to pay for the tax cuts to the rich.

  • mrbunnylamakins

    Amazing how President Obama can
    tout “If it can save the life of on child” The same rhetoric they use on
    EVERY topic, Yet Obama in the same breath allows C.I.A. to drone strike
    indiscriminately over seas even if they don’t know the target is there
    or not killing thousands of children. This after he ridiculed Bush over
    the same thing. Yet also you hear no Democrat in the media saying that
    more need to be done in Chicago as Gang shoot up the city and 75% of the
    homicides go unsolved. No Democrat too spoke out about Fast and Furious
    that I have seen.
    Fast and Furious: ‘A couple dozen’ Democrats may
    vote to hold Eric Holder in contempt…key word “May”. Yet also funny
    the cities with the most gun crimes are ran by Democrats. Even Jon
    Stewart is calling Obama out on several topics. Funny also how Liberals
    are foaming at the mouth for gun control but their Hypocritical Leader
    Obama supplies guns and weapons to many in other countries. Yet liberal
    say nothing. No wonder The Nobel Peace Prize Committee asked for the
    award back. Also not to forget Many Democrat Senators own guns. Let’s
    forget Dianne Feinstein don’t mind either when she said she was sitting
    on her Assault Weapons Bill waiting for the “right time” (Newtown). If
    she really cared about children’s lives as she claims she would of
    purposed that bill as soon as she wrote it. She also had to drop from
    the Senate Military Construction Appropriations Subcommittee after
    people found out she was war-profiteering.

    This idiot can try to demonize the NRA but facts are facts.

    Fact is there is NO 90% of America that wants expanded gun
    registration.Not only that More and More people are joining the NRA each

    Liberals dream for us to be like the U.K. where they have 5X the violent crime rate per capita than the U.S.

    • Lance Uppercut

      What absolute nonsense. The homicide rate in the US is 4 times what it is in the UK. A mass-shooting every other month, more serial-killers than you can poke a stick at, gang warfare on a massive scale, terrorist attacks… the list is endless.

      Only a complete moron who only watches Fox News (which to be fair, includes most of the folk posting here) would believe anything OTHER than they are far safer living in the UK than the US.

      And more to the point, the only people I’ve seen genuinely foaming at the mouth so far are blood-profits salesman extraordinaire Wayne LaPierre, and gun-worshiping crackpot-in-chief Alex Jones.

  • It’s sad that a newspaper gives this clueless anti-American moonbat Dave Perry a platform to spew his lies and hate. I only caught his drivel because Drudge linked to the clown’s article.

    • Lance Uppercut

      And thank god Drudge is there to tell mouthbreathers like you what to think, right? Would be a real shame if you had to do your own research and realize that the US’s childish obsession with guns makes them a laughing stock in the eyes of the rest of the world, wouldn’t it?

      • Like I care what the rest of the world thinks. If the rest of the world wants to impress me, go get our flag off the moon. Until then, STFU.

      • Kenai

        It’s a good thing that libturds have George Soros, Media Matters et al. to tell them what to think or they would be totally devoid of thought. If Bla ck and Hispanic gun violence is taken from crime data, the murder rate in the US isn’t significantly higher than other European countries. Care to explain that, Bobby? Oh, that’s rraaayyyycciiiiissss so we can’t talk about that. Care to explain why the US, even including minorities, is only ranked fifteenth in the world for murders?

        Gun ownership in the US is orders of magnitude higher than in all other countries. If guns are the cause of violence, why doesn’t the US rank orders of magnitude higher in violence. Care to explain that, Bobby? No, I thought not.

        • Lance Uppercut

          Not sure who Bobby is, but yes I do care to explain it. If you feel that the US being “only fifteenth” in the international list of nations by homicide rate… ahead of such lawless wastelands as Colombia, Sierra Leone or Nigeria (I don’t have the list handy, so am making educated guesses)… if you feel that is a point of pride then I feel sorry for you having such low standards. The fact is the US rank of violence and homicide IS orders of magnitude higher than nearly every other similar 1st world nation, and that it DOES correlate statistically (around 4 times the rate of most other civilized nations) with your orders of magnitude higher rate of gun “ownership” (if you can even use that term, as a country with 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns a more correct term would be “hoarding”).

          And while I don’t believe your comment about Black and Hispanic violence for one moment as being factual and anything other than racist prejudice… and since you provide no credible source for it… that is your own racist problem if you choose not to regard them as American citizens. I was talking about a comparison of international rates, not cherry-picking statistics to agree with one’s on racial prejudices.

          • Kenai

            If you don’t agree with my statement about Bla ck and Hispanic crime rates, take it up with the FBI and the DoJ. It’s their data, not mine. Sorry if reality causes you butthurt.

            I especially like how you call Nigeria and Columbia ‘lawless wastelands’ but refer to the ghetto and barrio inhabitants of Chicago, Camden and East LA as just regular American citizens. Nah, no ‘cherry picking’ there.

            Another fact for you. 90 percent of the gun crime in the US occurs in just 7 percent of the counties in the US. Good thing that there aren’t any ‘lawless wastelands’ in the US, right, Lance? Curious how the rate of gun violence in 93 percent of the US isn’t ‘orders of magnitude’ higher than in other 1st world countries.

            Oh, I forgot, that’s more of that rrraaayyyycciiiiissss reality so it doesn’t count. Causes butthurt, ya’ know. Tell you what, Lancebutthurt, spend the price of a stamp and mail your butthurt race card to someone who gives a sh!t.

          • Lance Uppercut

            Sorry, I’m afraid it’s impossible to have any kind of intelligent debate with the kind of infantile mindset that would use the phrase ‘butthurt’. I was talking about comparisons between sovereign nations, so yes…. saying “oh but if we just juke the stats to remove these numbers we don’t like” is the very definition of cherry-picking.

            I am sorry your homicide rate is so much higher than every other similar developed nation on the globe, but that’s the price you pay for your gun culture… I would suggest practical steps you might take to reduce it, but that would require evolving beyond your Wild West mentality of gun-worship. And your politicians are so obviously in the pockets of the gun industry and it’s lobbyists that effective change won’t be coming anytime soon.

            But go back to playing Call of Duty with your racist frat-boy buddies, because there’s no reasoning with your beer-addled brand of non-thought.

          • Kenai

            Geez, and I thought that ‘butthurt’ had become standard in our modern lexicon. So, from your lofty perch of assumed libturd superiority comes the (interpreted) reply of, “I don’t really know jackschitt about what I’ve been blathering on about so I don’t want to show myself as an idiot”. Yep, go on back to your fantasy land of libturdville, Lancypoo, where you don’t have to deal with that nasty thing called reality.

          • Lance Uppercut

            Grow the hell up man. Until then your arguments amount to nothing but some extremely juvenile invective. Anyone with solid reading comprehension skills can see exactly who showed themselves as the idiot here, and it isn’t me, junior.

          • Kenai

            The fact that 90 percent of the gun violence in the US happens in just seven percent of the counties in the US is just ‘invective’. Uh huh, you betcha’.

      Where did you get your numbers? The most recent ABC News / Washington Post Poll showed that, when adjusted for the population of the poll (55% weren’t gun owners, 43% were), it was a dead heat for renewing the AWB, background checks, and magazine limits. Regarding the gun show “loophole”, there is no such thing. Any time you purchase a gun from a licensed dealer, be it at a gun show or at a gun store, you have to pass a background check. Period.

      Additionally, there is nothing to vote on. This is a Constitutionally protected right that cannot be removed under any circumstances. That would be like voting to end freedom of the press or freedom of speech.

          There is nothing common sense about any of these reforms. Banning large capacity magazines does nothing. It takes 1 second to change a clip, and with practice and a speed loader one can attain the same rate of reloading with a revolver. The AWB is nothing more than banning scary-looking guns. Most weapons on the list aren’t even legal for hunting because they aren’t powerful enough. We already have laws for background checks. The only common-sense reform would include ending the ACLU-sponsored ban on sharing mental health data with the ATF so our only barrier to keeping them from buying a gun is them self-reporting that they are of sound mind by checking a box on the application, and to realize that gun-free zones simply don’t work.

  • Bob

    Mr Perry think about what one trained armed person could have done in your local theater when the looney leftist type you so adore was murdering movie goers. Oh I forgot he selected a gun free zone didn”t he.

  • Kurt S.

    Mr. Perry. I triple dog dare you to come to my house and try to send me to Gitmo. You’ll leave prone with my NRA card stapled to your ass.

    Send 4.3 million people to Gitmo? Really? Since Gitmo can’t possibly accommodate such a large number; maybe consider internment camps across the US. Jack ass.

  • Doug

    Pro Gun fascists are using their blood money to attack our democracy. Congress bows to line their pockets. SHAME ON YOU CONGRESS. The people have spoken, we DEMAND commonsense gun safety reform. Our democracy will lose it’s legitimacy as we fall closer to giving in to big money gun groups. OUR CHILDREN DESERVE THIS VOTE.

    • Kurt S.

      STFU Commie. I have read your leftist puke posts and you want nothing to do with democracy.

    • SSJJ

      I don’t own guns, and don’t plan to. Read the article, and then read your post again. Why is anger an inappropriate response when people want to round you up and send you to Gitmo, and what’s “paranoid” about fearing they’ll do what they openly threaten to do?

    • Gotham Knight

      Read Mr. Perry’s article. If you aren’t more disturbed by his desires for Americans who believe in their right to bear arms, than those responding to his sentiments, then you have no knowledge of history, and you will blindly accept anything. Stop spending your precious time watching television for a living and read a book or two about the history of fascism.

    The problem with America is American’s. Just the same as the problem in Africa are africans. People pull triggers, knives, and put cars in gear while drunk.

  • You want to take away my constitutional rights and put me in a concentration camp? Mr. Perry, bring it on, but come in person..

He’s one of the useful idiots that authoritarian governments always round up after they’ve helped accomplish the current wave of limits on freedom. It’s kind of a three step program. 1) Register the guns. 2) Confiscate the guns. 3) Start putting limits on free speech (That’s where Mr. Perry gets to ride in a cattle car).

    At least Mr. Perry honesty describes the bill’s true ultimate intent: registration. Most libs lied about that issue (despite the weak language in the bill suggesting it would be illegal to create a registry from the abckground checks). That is, until an amendment came along later and eliminated that language from the original version.

  • By comparing the NRA to terrorists, Mr. Perry lost the argument before he got to his third paragraph. Can’t believe this guy earns a salary by writing.

  • Juna

    1) The bill that was defeated, even including all proposed amendments, would NOT have stopped Newtown–a fact that was admitted by the staffers who wrote the bill.

    2) The NRA has routinely pushed for stricter enforcement of existing laws, including background checks (BGCs). Currently, the vast majority of BGCs violations are not enforced by the government. Why, then, would we pass a bill requiring more when we don’t enforce the violations already?

    3) Gun control laws have NEVER been shown to cause a reduction in violent crime. In fact, the majority of evidence-based research shows that stricter gun control laws are associated with HIGHER violent crime rates. The remainder of the studies show that gun control laws have no effect on violent crime.

    4) This is a hateful and vile article maligning millions of Americans as terrorists and people who support violent crime. Neither the 2nd Amendment nor the NRA support violent crime. In fact, the NRA has always pushed for STRICTER penalties for people who commit a crime with a firearm, even if they don’t use it.

I lived in Colorado in the 60’s and 70’s and it WAS a great state. So sad to see that is has become California on steroids.

    Yet, the shooter in Aurora had mental health issues, which might have been caught by the Grassley amendment, but not the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer amendment. And yet the Democrats voted down the Grassley amendment to make more mental health records available to the background check system. Instead tried to push an amendment that tried to give the federal government the authority to track private sales of firearms. So their goal wasn’t to save lives, but to expand government control.

I proudly served my town while upholding the Constitution — hey! read it some time, you may learn a thing or two — and I am a proud member of the organization. It is precisely because of twisted and perverted viewpoints such as those held by you that it makes it all the more clear why we need the NRA today more so than ever.

    The only individuals with blood on their hands are those who advocate disarming the citizens, leaving them defenseless in the face of criminals. It is you, Mr. Perry, who ought to be ashamed of yourself and your actions. And it is you who has the blood on your hand for all those innocents gunned down at the movie theater.

      Wow Doug – just spewing words again without any real backup.

      What would have saved the kids in Newtown? Two things – if the ACLU and Liberals stopped protecting the privacy of the mentally unstable and required that to be reported to the authorities, or a guy with a gun.

      What would have saved the victims at Aurora? The same thing. The Boston Marathon and Oklahoma City show that a lunatic doesn’t need a gun to inflict mass casualties.

    • Do you just cut a paste from HuffingtonPuffington Post?

    • “The people of Iran have more say in their votes than we do in America”

      Then by all means, go live in Iran and “have more say” in your vote there.

    • Nothing suggested as “gun safety reform” has any chance whatsoever of preventing a tragedy such as happened in Newtown or Aurora. No one even PRETENDS that any of the legislation proposed would do anything to prevent a tragedy such as happened in Newtown or Aurora. No one on YOUR side CARES that nothing suggested even pretends that it will do anything to prevent a tragedy such as happened in Newtown or Aurora.

      So what’s it about then? It’s about the psychological need to make law-abiding gun owners do penance for crimes they didn’t commit.

When you blame the NRA for the acts of terrorists, you are being manipulative… and untruthful. If government is not trusted by most Americans… it is because trust hasn’t been earned and the transparency promised has never been delivered. Your own arrogance and condensation is remarkable… I am sure all your friends think just like you… an intellectually impoverished experience.

    Perry’s columns come off like a child having a temper tantrum, and the only thing he can do is spat off hate labels to those who do not fit into his agenda. This is typical of what I have seen from lefty’s – they let their emotions get ahead of common sense and believe it’s o.k. to trump peoples’ constitutional rights. It’s Perry’s right to say what he wants; it is also a right for Americans to own guns. His columns are amusing to say the least; about what I would expect from a free handout publication.

  • Doug

    I also find it ironic that the people that oppose commonsense gun safety reform are the same people attacking the president over Benghazi. What did the protesters use to kill 4 people over their? Oh I don’t know, GUNS maybe????

    • Reason8200

      What do you classify as common sense? We have plenty of gun laws that arent being enforced. Do criminals follow these laws?

    • Yes let’s just mix and match our arguments. The marathon bombers used pressure cookers, so let’s ban pressure cookers.

    • Paul

      Nothing being proposed are common-sense. The NRA has been pushing two things for years that would make for common-sense gun reform and have been halted by the ACLU and Liberals – access to mental health records and an ATF booth at every gun show where private individuals who are selling guns to other private individuals can get background checks done before processing the transaction. Why won’t the ATF do this? Because Liberals say it is an invasion of privacy and they say that since such a small number of gun sales take place in such a fashion that it isn’t worth their time.

  • jewhader

    Sounds like this clown wants a civil war.

  • Second Amendment protects the natural right of self defense against tyranny. Read it. It is cut and dry. NO part of it is ablative. Hypocrites are those who cry for civil rights, then cry to deny basic individual rights.

    The Miller case stated that the sawed-off shotgun cold be restricted because it was NOT a standard military issue weapon.

    The Heller case as well as McDonald both upheld the right to self-defense as implied by the 2nd Amendment.

    Then you have Gonzales v Castle Rock. It is NOT the job of police to protect you. It is there job to investigate crime AFTER it happened.

    Mr. Perry, you failed your basic civics classes, didn’t you?

  • No due process, Mr. Perry?

    I see your point, actually. That
    musty, dusty old Constitution shouldn’t have any relevance in an era of
    hope and change. It’s far better to give the man in the White House the
    new title of Dictator Obama, and let him make life and death decisions
    based on whim and emotion instead of morality or law.

  • Karl

    Typical banter of the ignorant fear mongers that use lies and sensationalism in an attempt to convince law abiding citizens to give up their Constitutional rights. He claims:
    “…military weapons in the hands of crazy people…”- Not true..the commercially available Armalite (AR) style rifles are not military assault rifles – I have used military assault rifles over my 20+ years in the service. The AR rifles that the public can buy are similar in appearance and maintenance but not the same as a military assault rifle in terms of capability. The gun control activists invented the term “assault weapons” to make one believe the commercially available ARs are the same as military assault rifles…the fact is they are not.

    As for “crazy people” having guns, funny how the gun control activists have failed to mention how existing background checks in CT prevented Adam Lanza from buying a gun so he ended up killing his mother and taking the guns from her home.

    “90 percent of Americans wanting expanded gun registration” – Not true..look at the number of “citizens” that were polled….it comes out to less than .005% of the U.S. population.

    As for bullied Senators, the Senators who stood their ground and voted against the bills actually analyzed the issue. These courageous public servants saw the bills for what they are and refused to let themselves be ruled by raw emotion. They did not simply jump on the bandwagon and seek to trample on the rights of law abiding citizens.

    You want to address gun violence? Go after the criminals! Actually enforce the laws without coddling criminals and gang members-no lenient sentences for gun related crimes. You have to ENFORCE LAWS AND DETER criminals otherwise the criminals run amok and the innocent bystanders are unwilling to support law enforcement because the criminals control the neighborhoods.

    You want to protect our children?…in ALL the past atrocities there were warning signs and indicators before the events but nothing was done, no resources were available. Law enforcement claims they can’t do anything until a crime is committed and mental health professionals claim they cannot forcibly detain and treat people with mental health issues. You want to protect our children?…Look at the crap films coming out of Hollywood which glorify violence and gore. Look at the violent video games which do the same. The Newtown shooter was completely immersed in violent video games and even spent nearly 2 yrs (as estimated by law enforcement) deliberately planning his attack against defenseless children and educators using a gaming approach.

    Being a lifetime NRA member, I may not agree with everything about the NRA but I will gladly support them as they can better fight the 2nd Amendment fight on my behalf than I ever could. As for NRA bullying, I have been bullied and threatened by the so called gun control activists. I have demonized and likened to pedophiles for exercising my 2nd amendment rights by some elected officials who claim to be unbiased representatives of the American people. We need the NRA more than ever, I am grateful that the NRA is here making a difference.

    If any of the crazies that shot up innocents at movie theaters or schools had instead repeatedly rammed their car or truck back & forth through a crowd of kids, killing and maiming as many as possible, would these liberals then be calling for outlawing cars & trucks?!? I doubt it, so what’s up with this illogical fixation on gun disarmament?!?

    I have know scores of people like Perry. Most of them can’t change a tire, use a ladder, plant a tree, or tend to a garden. They are the segment of society that is incapable of doing almost anything and see life thru the prism of their backwardness. They make the fatal flaw of thinking most people are like them, but most people view the Perry type as an unadulterated eunuch.

    This isn’t an objectively written news article. It’s a biased opinion.

    The problem isn’t the guns, folks. It’s the psychopathic children we’re raising.

    Mr Perry, it is those like you who are a danger to the US. You would undermine liberty, self sufficiency, and the value of personal achievement because you cannot thrive in such an environment. Hence you want to make everyone a client (read:slave) of the state that you expect will elevate you to the status you think you deserve.

    The Second Amendment and indeed the entire Constitution are not about technology, but about human nature. The Founders understood you all too well.

  • Heartland Patriot

    I am the NRA, along with the other people who make up the FIVE MILLION STRONG membership. You can’t get the Army to do your dirty work, you totalitarian punk, and there aren’t enough Federal agents, either. So, man up and try and put us in Gitmo yourself, jackwagon. MOLON LABE!

    Unfortunately, your rant offers no facts, only opinion. The facts about guns are not on your side and neither is public opinion. Thankfully, you are very much in the minority and the Senators knew that. You don’t even qualify as a useful idiot.

    It appears Dave Perry is taking the same medication the Aurora shooter had on board. His Mental Health Provider probably has not turned this record over to the Federal Background Check system either.

  • You hate the 2nd Amendment so much and the US Constitution, MOVE.

  • The modern Demokratic “progressive” movement is nothing more that a continuation of the Euro-Fascist ideals.
    One can in fact look at Mussolini’s “Doctrine of Fascism” as a fundamental bridge between the Euro-Fascists and the outlying “progressive” movements in England, Canada and the USA.

    “America’s ‘Fascist Moment’
    By RON RADOSH | January 4, 2008”
    “Readers will learn that the very term “liberal fascism” came from the pen of H.G. Wells, the famed socialist author who delivered a speech at Oxford University in 1932 that included hosannas to both Stalin’s Russia and Hitler’s Germany. “I am asking,” Wells told the students, “for a Liberal Fascisti, for enlightened Nazis.” Democracy, he argued, had to be replaced with new forms of government that would save mankind, producing a “‘Phoenix Rebirth’ of liberalism” that would be called “Liberal Fascism.”

    Ever wonder why “Progressives” are so “tolerant” and “open minded” of ideas that threaten their political power?

    I’ve never been an NRA member, although I used to own guns for hunting as well as for personal safety. My life circumstances have radically changed of late and I no longer own any guns, unfortunately. That being said, this article by a pathetic excuse for a journalist has tipped the scales for me. On principle, I’m joining the NRA today!

  • Leah

    Libtards call law-abiding citizens “terrorists.” An then, dismiss every criminal and terrorist act. It’s beyond pathetic.

  • Tell you what, I’ll give up my right to own a gun when you give your right to the freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Our right to own a gun has helped preserve your right to the freedom of speech and the press. If you don’t believe it, take it away. When you come sniveling back and complaining you no longer have your rights, you will have earned it.,You can say whatever you want, no matter how inflammatory it might be and get away with it. If I express my desire to own a gun you want to put me in Gitmo. You’re a real hypocrite. On top of that, you’re a real lemming wanting everyone to go over that cliff with our empty suit of a president. When he disarms all of us, he’ll send in his brotherhood friends and we’ll all get to live under sharia law. You guys aren’t even blind, you’re dumb.

    It’s amazing. To the Dems, republicans (US Citizens) are terrorists… minus real terrorists like the Boston bombers they apologize for. Benghazi not terroism just a video.

    I agree – it’s time the American people fight the cowards such as this unethical twit. Funny how many so called ‘journalists’ are willing to give up any notion of professionalism, much less ethics, for their ideology and to blindly follow barry over a cliff.

    Further proof as to why ‘journalism’ is no longer a profession but a special interest, activists – nothing more, subversive, cowardly, deceitful, un-American activists and it’s time the American people made the media pay for their deceits and ‘crimes’ against the people of this nation in the name of their ideology.

    You piece of $h!t.

    “When the facts are so clearly before all Americans” you say?

    Facts like what? Cities with the most strict gun laws have the highest murder rates, like Chicago?

    What about the fact that not a single proposal from your dear leader would have stopped a psycho kid from STEALING his mother’s lawfully obtained (but poorly stored) firearms?

    What about the fact that a “gun free zone” is nothing more than a soft target advertisement for psychos who specifically choose targets where they can be assured that they will meet no armed resistance?

    If you truly believe the BS you write, you communist human colostomy bag, then put up a sign on your front lawn that says “this home is proudly gun-free.”

    Until then, you can go f*** yourself you spineless piece of commie garbage.

    • Doug

      You are just proving his point. Gitmo might be to kind for the average gun nut.

      • Jonathan Ladd

        Save the rhetoric and offer an actual coherent, substantive argument to the contrary. But don’t give yourself a headache in the process…it’d be a shame to override that warm, fuzzy feeling that your worthless intentions provide your little liberal tummy with the pain that comes with forcing your brain into the task of critical thought…

        For starters, feel free to attempt to refute a single one of the facts I presented.

        But before you do, I have personal anecdotal evidence. Had a guy attempt to break into my home when I was 18 and babysitting my 5 year old sister and 13 year old brother.. It took the cops 20 minutes to get there. I cocked the shotgun and the guy left…

        So go ahead.. I’m itching to hear from you that I should have just offered up myself and my family’s lives to the altar of pu$$y liberal victimhood..

        Please, by all means.. Tell me how your plans for our 2nd amendment would have helped me better in that situation.. Go ahead..

    Dave Perry needs to go find a history book. From 1900-2000 liberalism is directly responsible for over 100 million deaths.

    • GunLovingLiberal

      3 people an hour die because conservative capitalists deny them health care. Just because you are not shooting them does not mean you are not murdering them…. Even if ‘liberals’ were responsible for 100 million deaths, right wing whackos like Hitler bring you to 60 million, then the dictators like Pinochet and others bring you easily to 100 million. THEN, when we add all the passive murder you conduct (I worked for hospice and helped the victims of capitalism die peacefully because capitalist pigs like you would not give chemo to them), we will surely get into the billions of people fast… morons…all of you

      • Reason8200

        Learn some history kid. Hitler was one of your guys. Take your meds so you can come back to reality. My second point…if you hate this country so much then why are you still here? I’ll tell you why, because like most liberal commies, you see others wealth that can be plundered. You want it, but you dont want to work for it..That is why you are a liberal, because you know in exchange for your vote, liberal politicians will use the power of the law to plunder what others have worked for and give it to you. The pursuit of liberalism is the pursuit of cowardice. All dictators are liberals.

    Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, or traducement—is the communication of a factual statement that harms the reputation of an individual, business, product, group, government, religion, or nation.
