Comey: The NRA "Sells Fear" to Keep Us From Imposing Common Sense Gun Grabbing Laws

I keep hearing this guy is a "Republican."

It should be noted that "DC Republican" isn't the same as a real Republican.

Fish drink the water they swim in, don't they?

Also, I've noticed that many government Republicans have a faith in government's capacity to re-make people for the better nearly equal to liberals'. I imagine this is a matter of self-selection as well as ego -- everyone tends to believe the groups they're in are the Best Groups with the Greatest Capacity to Do Good. And government Republicans tend have a greater faith in their fellow, mostly-liberal coworkers that non-government Republicans just don't share.


Former FBI director James Comey criticized the National Rifle Association during a book-tour appearance in Miami Wednesday, arguing that the group of "sells fea" to gun owners to ward off popular support for restrictions on gun rights.

Asked what policies he would support to prevent mass shootings like the one that claimed 17 lives in Parkland earlier this year, Comey said he would support "reasonable restrictions" on gun ownership but declined to provide specifics.

The FBI director-turned-author recounted the experience of being held at gunpoint by a home invader in high school in explaining his nominal support for the Second Amendment, but firmly rejected the argument that any modification to current gun laws would lead to a total ban on gun ownership.

"It's not a slippery slope, it's a concrete set of stairs built by America's founders," he said. "Let's have these conversations standing there, holding the rails."

Even putting aside the perjury, I STILL object to Billy Clintons affair with Monica, not because of the morality immorality issue. I object to it because he was given a pass for doing what in anyone else would be grounds for summary dismissal: he banged an employee who reported to him.

During the 90s, I was on a NFL board with a guy who worked in government, who told us that his mouth dropped wide open when the Clintons tried to make sex with a subordinate no big deal.

He said that the Clinton admin itself made sure that he wasted a whole day in a seminar that said that "sex at work" shouldn't be--and was never right in any case. They made everybody in government waste a day in a seminar on what they would eventually pooh-pooh.

Of course it's 2018, so a disgraced and bizarre (and likely to be imprisoned) former FBI Director can pretend to have views of any value on a case where his own f***ing agency dropped the ball, allowing the damage to occur. We need a new word, "chutzpah" is grossly inadequate.

There have been six shooters that I know of which the FBI either dropped the ball on entirely or failed to handle properly:

Nick Cruz - failed to act on repeated danger signs and clear statements of intent
William Atchison - interviewed by the FBI and cleared
Omar Mateen - protected by FBI because of informer dad, interviewed and cleared
Tamerlane Tsarnov - interviwed by FBI and cleared despite warnings from Russian government about the guy and his brother
Dylann Roof - allowed gun purchases because of FBI screwups despite being flagged for no gun purchase
NIdal Hassan - FBI ignored its own and the Army's information and its own warnings about the man because of fears of racism and anti=Muslim behavior.

67 Also, I've noticed that many government Republicans have a faith in government's capacity to re-make people for the better nearly equal to liberals'

I've said it ... still believe it ... most Democrats and Republicans only disagree on the Ends. The Means - not so much.

They both see Government as a way to "do good". They just differ on what "good" actually looks like.

I'll be honest ... although anybody that's paid any attention to me already figured it out. I'm obviously no Republican. It's just that, right now, Democrats hold most of the power, so Republicans are my natural allies.

But flip the roles - and yeah, I see a Republican Party every fucking bit as over-bearing and miserable as Democrats. Just about a different slate of issues.

Until a third party emerges that actually wants to reduce the size and scope of Government - my best bet is for these two groups of fuckers to just tear each other apart.

And I got a better chance of finding a unicorn than that third party.

83 One more thing, if the left were serious about negotiating, wouldn't they be at least offering something in return to gun owners in order to get to a compromise. For example, "OK, universal background checks in exchange for concealed carry reciprocity."

Not saying that's a fair trade-off, just noting that they never offer gun-owners anything in return for the restrictions they want. It's an entirely one-sided deal they are offering. Only a congressional Republican makes a compromise like that.

But yeah, Americans are just plain stupid to think they have any reason to fear their government.

Well said. That such an orwellian situation has continued on this, to me, is a very dire indicator. Yes, of course there is no press. But having a political party, or even members of it, who would make the point, doesn't seem like much to ask. Especially when they "control" all elected branches of govt.

Partly because they see the bad every day of gun use and its faults, and resent or are suspicious of anyone who uses a gun well to protect people.

More: A friend writes (paraphrased), "Something no one talks about is that the NTs actually favored Hillary from a policy perspective as well. Internationalist interventionism, 'free trade', corporate cronyism. That was their candidate."

I'd add in: They actually are largely open borders as well. Free trade absolutists are very sympathetic to, if not outright supportive of, the idea that just as goods should be free to cross borders unimpeded, so too should labor.

This is the position of the Wall Street Journal, which used to declare, every 4th of July, something like, "The immigration policy of the United States shall consist of five words: 'There shall be open borders.'"

They stopped declaring that forthrightly that after 9/11 (whoopsie!), but you can hear this echoing in their rhetoric.

Guy at my old firm - MBA type. Would rather suck a cock than vote Democrat. But he was all in on Open Borders, Gun Confiscation, etc... Basically - he wanted the US to be an Economic Zone.

So I asked him, over a beer ... "When you get this, who's going to fight these overseas wars you love ? Because my kids ain't, and I'm retired." Crickets.

So I continue ... "So, when everybody's unemployed or working for Charles Dickens Wages, who's going to stop the mobs from taking YOUR shit instead ? Because it ain't gonna' be Me. And You ain't able."

The guy was visibly disturbed and offended. The notion that people would simply say Screw The Law and turn on him and his kind was ... inconceivable.

They don't really believe in individual free will--they think that everyone (except them) is somebody's puppet and someone's holding the strings.

They want to be EVERYONE'S puppet-masters. Because they're just so dog-gone better than everyone else, you see. THEY'RE not puppets, you see. They hold the strings, they're not held by them.

Therefore: The NRA (for instance) is a rival puppet master, holding the strings of their otherwise inert and unthinking membership. Get rid of the NRA and the unthinking, inert NRA members' strings will simply fall into their greedy little hands.

Because I bought a gat to protect my house
The cops want to bust me out?
So it's illegal to protect yourself?
Hell, you either get killed, or you in jail

To buy a gun, you have to have a national ID check, which checks your background, citizenship and Identification.

To VOTE, you fill out a card, and have a ballot mailed to you... which anyone can then fill in and mail back... no ID check at all, including citizenship...

IF one is common sense control... then why is it not common sense for another supposedly EQUAL Right?

Shortly after Waco, NBC slapped together a made-for-TV movie "In the Line of Duty: Ambush at Waco" (1993).

Chris ... I'd say not "Couldn't". "Wouldn't". Simply Would Not. Here's what I saw and remember.

My family was Working Poor White Trash. They were not, by any definition, either Law Abiding or Peaceful. They brought Police Force down upon themselves that really was justified, more than once.

However - during Ruby Ridge - that entire bunch was in a full-bore love affair with Bill Clinton. He could simply do no wrong.

It was ... well, it was fucked up ... watching the entire clan go through mental gymnastics regarding Ruby Ridge and Waco. They had to square an instinctual distrust of Law Enforcement with a desire to support ANYTHING that came out of the Clinton Administration.

But other folks I knew, outside of my clan, got the picture. That's when I started seeing Militias both get formed and go underground. That's when I, personally, started seeing people arm up.

Ruby Ridge and Waco was when I started seeing the group of people coalesce that just mistrusted the entire system.

And I can see a simple situation where no one lied about this...

Cohen, paid off the Blackmailer to shut her up... and didn't tell Trump....

Thus, Cohen's statement that HE paid for it...

Then, after this blows up in the Press, Trump finds out about it, and realizes he owes Cohen $130K.... so writes him a check...

Ergo.... before.... Trump had not paid... now... he has.
Posted by: Don Q. at May 03, 2018 06:39 PM (NgKpN)

From personal experience I can relate that being taller than literally everyone around you grants a level of confidence in yourself and bizarrely a certain level of respect and deference in others around you.

It makes no damn sense.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at May 03, 2018 06:58 PM (39g3+)


Actually it does make sense to me. We're probably hard-wired for that. I figure that in traditional class-based societies, the nobility were better fed than the peasantry, and thus taller on average.

438 Comey is kind of right. The NRA is always selling the fear that unelected, Hillary-favoring government bureaucrats will attempt to overrule the Constitution and our laws to control the people of the United States. Yep. Comey is definitely the guy to push that message.

Also thrown in was (they are devout Catholics, you know, the ones who have 30 kids because the Pope says so) If the Church doesn't like it, the Church can go fuck itself. This is liberal logic.

Of course, in the end he's just a hated white male (a law enforcement officer, at that) whose only value to them is as a tool to beat on Trump, but he's too much of an autist to realize it. Just listening to this guy, you know sooner or later he's going to put his foot in his mouth and then the progressive mob will turn on him and eat him alive.

I don't think this has much to do with race, and a whole lot to do with class.

And I'm no fool - me with my self-employed automatoin gig and my wife with her computer developer gig still don't rank in "their" class. As far as the Powers That Be are concerned, we're part of the problem ... because we don't work cheap enough, hard enough, or long enough.

Because like anything, that doesn't fit the narrative.

Conservatives = Fear mongers.

Even thought they're the ones who freak out if *White Nationalists* (!!) protest the tearing down of a public statue. They're looking for the "conservatives that finally snapped" in almost every mass shooting.

And they're the ones telling everybody that our "democracy" is tipping on the edge.

But they're not "fear-mongers" because when they say something, it's true. It's an actual warning.

That's what self-reinforcing non-reflective thinking does.

455 Just say "NO" to Comey - no matter what he says.

This gun control nonsense is just his attempt to get back in the good graces of the leftist gun-grabbing crowd.

Don't forget that Hil-LIAR-y openly discussed how her nominee to replace Antonin Scalia (May he rest in peace) would be a committed liberal, and the new leftist majority of the Supreme Court would reverse the Heller decision, institute comprehensive gun control and ban all "assault weapons" a la the Australian model.

457 I repeat again, the NRA did not come first. The lawful gun owners, needing an organization to lobby for their natural and Constitutionally protected right to bear arms, THEY came first.

THEN, the NRA. The NRA does not need to sell fear to gun owners. Democrats do that far better than the NRA ever could. The NRA simply acts on behalf of their 5 million members.

458 Common sense gun law reform:
Pass 50 state reciprocity.
Remove suppressors from NFA.
Remove SBR's from NFA.
Include violent juvenile crimes in NICS reports once the criminal is 18 years old.
Restrict violent juveniles from firearms ownership until age 25. Restore those rights only after minimum 5 years proven clean record after review by a judge. [example: 21 year old who has not committed a crime for at least 5 years and with demonstrated good character such as military service, regular employment, current student in good standing, etc. could petition a judge to restore gun rights.] This would hinder the tactics of gangs to use juveniles to commit violent acts. Such juveniles would not be in NICS when they turn 18. That is a problem that can be corrected.

Common sense prosecution reform:
Stop plea bargaining away prosecution of straw purchasers.
