Video: Gun control rally turns into gun rights rally

posted at 3:31 pm on September 1, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

There was what could prove to be an instructive moment for the Deplorable Nanny State Mayor this week, provided courtesy of the citizens of Ohio. The group Mayors Against Illegal Guns hosted a “rally” in Columbus, Ohio to build support for additional gun control legislation, but as the intro to the local news report asked (video below), “what happens when you throw a political rally, but nobody shows up except your opposition?”

It was a rally organized by gun-control supporters, but by the end, it looked more like an NRA rally.

“As a gun owner, I’m a responsible person and I think it’s responsible to ask to have all gun owners have a background check,” said Blanche Luczyk. “It’s just common sense. Any responsible person who is willing to take the ownership of a gun should be willing to have that background check.”

Luczyk was one of a half dozen members of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns who hosted the rally in the Arena District on Friday.

But when Luczyk started her speech by telling the crowd that former President Ronald Reagan supported background checks, she was drowned out by shouts of “Germany 1933″ and “Hitler.”

About 50 guns-rights supporters were on hand, some with rifles over their shoulders and others with handguns in hip holsters.

Charlie Roberts said he was there to make sure that gun rights advocates had their voices heard.

“I want to show my support for the NRA, gun rights and the 2nd Amendment,” said Roberts. “We need to go after the criminals who commit crimes with guns and not the honest law abiding citizens. We don’t need any new laws, just enforce the ones on the books.”

The gun owners and Second Amendment supporters in general who showed up were clearly well informed on the issue. When the MAIG spokesperson began talking about how “disappointed” they were in Rob Portman (who voted against the last effort on background checks), the crowd began chanting, “We love Portman!”

In the end, it looks like the media wound up getting more interviews with gun rights supporters than the sponsors of the event. (Which shouldn’t be surprising, since almost none of the latter’s proponents showed up.) In fact, the disparity in support for the two sides of the issue became really clear when a local supporter of gun rights wound up taking over as speaker. She delivered what probably wound up being the money quote of the day.

“There’s no reason for Mayors Against Illegal Guns to be in Ohio,” said Linda Walker of the Buckeye Firearms Foundation. “Ohioans stand up for our constitutional rights and that’s the way it’s going to be.”

“People are fired up, people are concerned,” said Walker. “It’s overwhelming this many people show up on a Friday afternoon because our constitutional rights are that important.”

Let’s close with the video. Keep this in mind when Bloomy’s group comes to your town.

Our Mayor is a proud member of MAIG. This is a fairly conservative city and there is an election right around the corner. Do you think the mayor’s membership in this radical group has been discussed ANYWHERE in the local LIBERAL media?

Not as important as Miley’s rear end I guess.

dirtseller on September 1, 2013 at 3:40 PM

Love it!!!
This seems to be happening in a lot of places the Bloomingidiots try to have their anti-gun rallies – they end up outnumbered.

I’ve been thinking of letting my NRA membership expire because of their non-stop fund-raising harrassment, but I think I’ll just have to put up with that to help ensure we keep our rights.

Big city? Hope you can toss him out soon.

I’m in the part of Colorado where we’re trying to recall a couple Dem state senators who are Nanny Bloomy puppets; puppets who just got a $350K check from Bloomy himself. And the Dems claim the recall effort is being pushed by “outsiders”. The lies the Dems are spewing to try to protect them are off the deep end.

Any responsible person who is willing to take the ownership of a gun should be willing to have that background check.

Because criminals intent on murder are such responsible people.

As long-time Life Member, Endowment Member, etc., of the NRA, I too get annoyed with the constant fundraising of existing members, but without the NRA on some other fine organizations on the front line against the gun control Nazis, I’m convinced we would have had a de facto repeal of the Second Amendment by now.

And with the left coming up with some new argument by the minute to take our guns away, it takes a hell of lot of money to fight that war.

Thanks for staying in the fight!

And what happens if nothing comes up from a background check? Or some minor infraction gives the local police authority the right to refuse buying a weapon? Require people to own a gun owner’s card with the attendant checks and then LEAVE THEM ALONE!

Pretty much my line of thinking on this.
The HA thread on Cam Edwards, with video of him speaking at an NRA event in Colorado sealed it for me. That was a GREAT video (if gun control worked Chicago would be Mayberry). I haven’t been entirely impressed with some of the national level spokespeople, but if they have more like Cam out speaking, then they’re worth funding.

I may also join GOA, which I’ve heard is a good organization.

I wonder if Blanche really is a gun owner. It could just be something she says to make it seem like she’s pro 2 nd amendment when she’s really not.

OT, but I would love to see HA and TPM open up their blogs so that we could have a slugfest over the myriad of issues that the left is perpetrating. Except that TPM would ban any comment from us after about five minutes. They don’t allow open discussion that refutes their leftist beliefs. I’ve been kicked off of there at least a half a dozen times.

The game was called “point ‘em out, knock ‘em out,” and it was as random as it was brutal.

The object: Target an innocent victim for no other reason than they are there, then sucker punch him or her.

But on this day in Lansing, there would be no punch. The teen-age attacker had a stun gun. He did not know his would-be victim was carrying a legally concealed pistol.

The teen lost the game.

Point em out, knock em out.

I don’t know about “requiring” a gun owner’s card – seems too much like getting government permission to exercise your 2A rights.
But if I had the option to do ONE background check and get a card like that and not have to do a new background check for EVERY gun purchase, I’d do it. I’ve had to pay and wait for 10 background checks in the last year.

dentarthurdent on September 1, 2013 at 4:14 PM

If local background checks never work in cities like Chicago because of relaxed gun laws in neighboring areas where guns can be transported then how will national gun laws work while there are open borders between Mexico and the U.S.?

From the Sandy Hook Advisory Committee Interim Report, MArch 18, 2013

The Commission takes seriously the rights afforded under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, but balances those rights against the language of the Preamble to the Constitution, which includes assurances of “domestic tranquility” and the obligation to “promote the general welfare.”

[See what they did there? If the Welfare Clause can be raped into the Food Stamp Claus, maybe anything's possible.]

In order for law enforcement agencies to safely engage in their lawful duties, the Commission believes the State of Connecticut should carefully consider the following items:

1. Mandatory background checks on the sale or transfer of any firearm, including long guns, at private sales and sales at gun shows.

2. Requiring registration, including a certificate of registration, for any firearm. This certificate of registration should be issued subsequent to the completion of a background check and is separate and distinct from a permit to carry.

3. Requiring the renewal of firearms permits on a regular basis. This renewal process should include a test of firearms handling capacity as well as an understanding of applicable laws and regulations.

4. Instituting a ban on the sale, possession, or use of any magazine or ammunition feeding device in excess of 10 rounds except for military and police use. The Commission recognizes that certain sporting events may at times seek to utilize higher capacity magazines, however the consensus of the Commission is that the spirit of sportsmanship can be maintained with lower capacity magazines.

5. Instituting a ban on the possession or sale of all armor-piercing and incendiary bullets, regardless of caliber. The Commission also believes that a first-time offense should be classified as a Class D Felony under Connecticut General Statutes.

6. Allowing the purchase of ammunition for registered firearms only.

7. Evaluating best practices for determining the regulation or prohibition of the sale and purchase of ammunition via the internet.

8. Evaluating the effectiveness of federal law in limiting the purchase of firearms via the internet to those who have passed the appropriate background screening.

9. Limiting the amounts of ammunition that may be purchased at any given time.

The Commission has found that the definition of “assault weapon” has allowed for cosmetic changes to military-style firearms that does not reduce their lethality but does allow them to be legally possessed. The Commission believes that, defining an “assault weapon” by form rather than function has been ineffective. It is the consensus of the Commission that gun violence is an issue that goes far beyond the tragedy at Sandy Hook, and the commonality of high-capacity firearms in violent crimes must be acknowledged. According to the 2011 Connecticut Uniform Crime Reporting Program, only two (2) of 94 firearm-related homicides in the state were committed with a rifle or a shotgun. It is the consensus of the Commission that firearm lethality is correlated to capacity, a correlation borne out not only in Sandy Hook Elementary School, but in other violent confrontations in and beyond Connecticut. Therefore, the Commission believes that the State of Connecticut should carefully consider:

[Because "assault weapons" aren't being used to commit murder, we have to redefine assault weapons so more murder weapons will qualify as assault weapons.]

10. Prohibiting the possession, sale or transfer of any firearm capable of firing more than 10 rounds without reloading. This prohibition would extend to military-style firearms as well as handguns. Law enforcement and military would be exempt from this ban.

Strike while the iron’s hot, I guess.

Akzed on September 1, 2013 at 4:33 PM

I’m a NY resident, and live in Mayor Bloomberg’s back yard. Started my permit application process in January, and won’t hear back until December.

And even though I got four notarized personal references, and will have passed a Federal, State, County AND Town background check, I STILL could not carry my gun into NYC.

Wake up, Blanche. This has nothing whatsoever to do with freakin’ background checks, and EVERYTHING to do with depriving law-abiding citizens of guns.

As a gun owner, I’m a responsible person and I think it’s responsible to ask to have all gun owners have a background check,” said Blanche Luczyk. “It’s just common sense. Any responsible person who is willing to take the ownership of a gun should be willing to have that background check.”

Hi Blanche. As a citizen of the USA, I’m a responsible person and voter. I think it’s responsible to ask to have all citizens who are eligible to vote have an ID card to register to vote and show it when voting in each election. It’s just common sense. Any responsible person who can vote should be willing to have that “background check” of just a picture ID.

Which is more important Blanche? The natural right to self defense or voting? If one can’t defend oneself, what is the point of voting? What if voters vote to take away your rights? Voting to make people buy things they might not want, like say healthcare. That is a lot of power. More power in the long term than a gun.

I’ve only heard about these “gun owner’s cards” in other states – like NY. I get the idea you have to have this before you’re allowed to buy a gun (legally). If accurate, that’s what I object to – the requirement to have a government issued card that says you’re allowed to own a gun.

In Colorado, there’s no such thing. Go buy a gun whenever you want – but you have to get a background check run – for $10, or more. The only government issued card we have is the Concealed Handgun Permit, which is “shall issue” given a clean NICS check. Mine finally showed up last week after doing the paperwork back in July.

Hey Blanche, how about background checks to get an abortion? Determine paternity, financial responsibility, stuff like that. Hey, seems like common sense, right?

And why stop there? How about voter background checks? This could get fun!!!

Here in Wyoming if you hold a valid concealed firearms license, you are exempt from background checks to purchase since you went through one to get the license. You still have to fill out the 4473, though.

New York is dumber than you think: I had to purchase a gun BEFORE I submitted my application, but I don’t have custody; the gun shop does. And there’s no “gun card” other than the permit, which, by the way does not allow me to take the gun anywhere but the range. Forget about carrying concealed!

Maddie on September 1, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Maddie on September 1, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Well, luckily Colorado isn’t THAT bad – YET.
If you’re old enough (21 for handguns, 18 for all else), go to the store, pick out a gun, fill out the 4473, pay for and wait for the background check ($10 now, thanks to the Dems; used to be free), then pay for the gun and take it away.
Colorado is open carry legal, and “shall issue” for concealed carry permits.
Of course the Dems are trying to change all of that.
And my county sheriff is one of the leaders in the fight against the Dems’ gun control attempts.

HiJack on September 1, 2013 at 4:10 PM

Just for clarification, the Dems control Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Akron.

By their usual methods (Chicago style) they can generally muster enough “votes” there to override the rest of the state, which consistently votes GOP.

Yes, Portman in the Senate and Kasich in the State House blindsided them. Helped along no doubt by Ohio’s voter ID law, dating to the 1930s. Which somehow is not really “enforced” in the aforementioned jurisdictions.

BTW, the last time Fairfield County (where I live) voted for a Dem for President, it was JFK.
