Last Saturday when Chuck and I were at the gun show in Saratoga, Albany County District Attorney David Soares was attending a gun-control rally outside.  I caught up with him and asked him what he was doing there, since it’s out of his district.  The rally was supporting a ban on assault weapons and large capacity magazines.  So I asked him straight up, how many of the cases his office prosecutes actually involve these so-called “assault weapons”.  Here is what he told me:

    I hope you weren’t surprised by the lie. To people like him this is entirely reasonable. It advances their agenda. No facts are required, actually, they just bog things down and confuse their issues.

    Pleas keep your facts to yourself. They are troublesome and unhandy.

    When you realize the Left has declared war on the Constitution, the union, the individual, and the American way of life, that is the moment you join the fight and prepare for literal war.

    Mine was with the 1994 Crime Bill and again with the 1999 Cox Report. When was yours?

    If he is saying there is no place in civilized society for semi-automatic weapons then he is actually saying all guns. A shotgun is semi-automatic as is a pellet rifle or a cap gun. But given the term ‘assault weapons’ it is scary that he is empowered to prosecute people.

    Without weapons to curtail the actions of bad people it is doubtful there would even be any sort of peaceful civilization but instead a society ruled by brutes and violence with nothing to counteract it. He needs to read Thomas Hobbes.

    If they don’t stop the bullshit they will start seeing the business end of lot’s of assault rifles.

    It’s time to force liberals to actually define what an “assault” weapon is.

    Dana Loesch, in her interview with Pierced Organ, nailed it, when she said an “assault” weapon to a liberal is a gun that looks scary.

    This weird liberal definition of “assault weapon” makes me want to get another reproduction blunderbuss, but have a gunsmith build a rail system, pistol grips, flashlight, and optical sights onto it.

    It would still be no more effective a weapon than any other reproduction of a 17th century flintlock blunderbuss, but it would be fun to mock liberals with my “assault weapon”.
