Liberals Say They are Against Gun Violence but Exacerbate It

The Post points out that “Gun seizures have plummeted by nearly 12 percent ever since federal Judge Shira Scheindlin’s ruling against stop-and-frisk left cops jittery.”

It’s fascinating that naïve liberals like Scheindlin pretend that they are against gun violence and ownership while they promote gun violence and ownership by refusing to search potential owners. Even though she is a liberal who is against guns, she has increased shootings and guns. Sadly ironic that good intentions pave the highway to hellish shootings.

Shira pats herself on the back with self-congratulation while her antipathy towards stop-and-frisk causes people to be shot in the back.  The good intentions of the naïve result in ignorant deaths.

Scheindlin was afraid that stop-and-frisk violated blacks’ and Hispanics’ civil rights.  Does she mean the right to be murdered in a tough neighborhood?  What’s important here—someone getting frisked or someone getting killed?

Bill “feel good” de Blasio has the same dim, empathetic intellect as Scheindlin.  Of course circuit judges kicked Scheindlin off stop-and-frisk cases, while “feel good” Bill was elected by the boohoo New York electorate to stop pat downs again.

Scheindlin and de Blasio hate guns so they stop the very frisks that would limit them.  Stupid?  I’d say so.

gunviolentIt’s as stupid as Obama wrecking the best healthcare program in the world for the sake of his unaffordable Affordable Health Care. He wanted to cover people who hadn’t earned health care so he cancelled the policies of those who had earned it.

The putative good, like de Blasio and Obama, never achieve their silly goals and leave the corpses of achievers in their wake.

Where have all the doctors and previous health care policies gone? As Obama and Peter Paul and Mary said, “Long time Passing.”

Beware of liberals, their results often contradict their intentions.

Machiavelli said that the ends should justify the means.  Obama, de Blasio and Scheindlin use the means as their ends and celebrate their own misinterpretation of morality, even if their politics end up in a blood bath.
