Suddenly, there’s concern about this states’ rights business

NYC police commissioner is having a bit of the vapors over the possibility of national reciprocity for gun permits. Some choice quotes:

I think its insanity

Yup. Exercising a constitutional right is insanity.

ONeill said accidents and suicides in addition to crime could skyrocket with more out-of-state guns around town.

And where has that happened in the past?

Right now, we have a good idea of whos carrying guns. If this law passes, all bets are off,

Yes, rich white guys with connections to get a permit. Otherwise, you have no idea who is carrying illegally.

    “…accidents and suicides in addition to crime could skyrocket with more out-of-state guns around town.”

    Key word being “could”. Crime “could skyrocket with more out-of-state guns in town, or it could not. Or crime could skyrocket with no additional guns in towen, or maybe it won’t. So you see he was being perfectly honest and logical. I “could” be struck by lightning tonight and killed too. It’s not entirely outside the real of possibility.

    None of that has anything to do with the actual point, however.

    I predict a rash of crimes where the perp or an accomplice make a brief conversation with the victim to check to see if they have a NYC accent. If not, they move along.

    This may, or may not, follow a brief period of the Darwinian process properly characterized as good shoots following a critical failure in the victim selection process.

    At this point, I’m ready for concealed carry permitting states that have reasonable reciprocity requirements to start jailing officials from states like New York who fail to recognize our permits. NYPD officer traveling to Georgia? Felony charge for failing to have a Georgia Drivers License and Georgia carry license.

    Citizens who carry guns are dangerous idiots, criminals, or both. That’s the prejudice and bigotry of these athoritarian elitists. Always remember, only your enemy wants you disarmed.

    So, what are gonna’ call these cities and states who refuse to adhere to a National Reciprocity Act if it does become the law of the land?

    Confederates?

    “I wouldn’t presume to tell the residents of West Virginia what their gun laws should be. They’ve figured out what they want there,” the DA said.

    But they’re more then happy to tell the rest of New York State how their gun rights should be. If it wasn’t for NYC, New York’s gun laws would be right in line with PA.

    Seems to me that continuing to recognize New York driver’s licenses is insanity and has caused accidents to skyrocket in this country. I see them all over our highways and byways down South driving like the proverbial bat out of hell.

    I would support no longer recognizing their out of state driver’s licenses in the name of safety for all the residents of the other 49 states.

    When slavery was upheld as legal by the 1857 SCOTUS Dred Scott decision, part of the majority opinion reasoning was that if black people were allowed to be citizens, then they would be free to “keep and carry arms wherever they went” . So now, leftists want to keep this same historical aspect of slavery.
