Aunt Janice and Gun-Grabbing Grand Theft Auto Cicilline

So, Rhode Islanders. How are you?

Awful? Or Awful Awful?

(Sorry, I couldn’t resist)

The Dancing Cop from Providence turned into the Rhode Island Dancing Cop.

And now he’s the retiring cop. Who says there’s no justice in the world?

I have been busy fighting the forces of evil here in California.

Rhode Island and California, still two states in a very bad state.

Locally, we are enjoying some real victories, though.

Good, solid conservatives won some key local races here in Torrance, California. My assemblyman got a school choice bill passed in deep blue, union-dominated one Golden State.

At least Congressional Democrats have been relegated to the minority for three election cycles in a row.

Their chances in 2016 hinge on their Presidential candidate, and how unmotivated the party faithful will be.

Even so, I doubt that they will win the majority.We still have our crazies. Governor Moonbeam here, and Gina Raimondo over there.

And now meet Congresswoman Janice Hahn (D-San Pedro). She plays nice with small businesses, but she really likes to do what the labor unions order her to do.

See Janice Run. She runs to the cameras. She likes to be liked.

See Janice fundraise. Fundraise, Janice, fundraise!

And she is running for her Daddy’s old job, as a member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

She needs free publicity, so she sat down with her lazy Democratic colleagues on the floor of the House of Representatives for twenty-five hours. Most of her California colleagues rushed to the floor, too especially the ones in swing districts where they still have to fight off challengers cycle after cycle.

Now, what does this have to do with you, Rhode Islanders?

Who has been a faithful crony in illiberal lunacy?

Who was there sitting on the floor of the House of Representatives, agitating to take away more people’s firearms? Getting all the good poses?

The one and only "Grand Theft Auto" David Cicilline.

Ugh. Someone please make him an offer he can’t refuse.

When will people get a clue?

Their temper tantrum violates rules of decorum. They ignore the rule of law, the Bill of Rights, and due process. They also broke out every social media tool to play up their #PoliticalLivesMatter activism. Of course, the vain-scream media, subservient to the statist cause, reported every tweet, Facebook post, and text message from Congressional representatives to the world at large.

Did we forget to mention that the Democrats, hiding behind Civil Rights icon John Lewis, were violating the due process of every citizen in the country? If the Democrats want more votes on their bills, then they need to win more seats. But as long as the left-flank has taken over their party, and the ideological twin Nancy Pelosi serves as minority leader for a diminished house caucus, their numbers won’t be growing anytime soon.

I had to look at this guy (with his best friend Janice Hahn) on TV taking up space, playing for the camera, showing everyone that he cares so much about us little people, that they want to take our guns away.
OK, fine, the Democratic caucus simply wanted an up-or-down vote on two bills:

1. If you are on the no-fly terrorist list, you should not be able to purchase a firearm.

2. Universal background checks, even at gun-shows.

Aunt Janice with David Cicilline

Let’s analyze these proposals. The first one is so gravely flawed, that even the American Civil Liberties Union opposes it. Remember, they’re the wacky left-win outfit which will fight for a criminal’s right to be free rather than the rights for everyone else to be safe. Innocent civilians have ended up on this list. Even Northern California’s conservative Congressman Tom McClintock could not board a flight because he shared the same name as a black-listed Irish domestic terrorist. One woman waited eight years to clear her name from the No-Fly List.

As for background checks: every major gun massacre was perpetrated by a licenses firearms owner. Good luck finding a gun-show where they run a gun under the table. Check out this video for proof positive in one of the reddest, most gun-friendly states in the union.

These Democrats will never stop until every firearm is confiscated and the state stands alone with the power to fight back.

This culture war is real, serious, and relentless.

The Orlando, Florida shootings offered another crisis for the Democrats not to put to waste. Instead, they wasted their time. I told Rep. Janice Hahn that much at her mock gun-control sit-in at a local high school. Lots of tears, lots of wailing mothers who will never see their dead relatives again.
(I feel for them. That’s why I support expansion of concealed carry permits.)

Hahn replayed the Rep. Lewis’ wavering, Gospel-like speech at the dais. Viewers can see Hahn and Cicilline pushing aside their colleagues so they can figure in the front row. During public comment, I mentioned that when civil rights activists held sit-ins in the past, they were fighting for people’s rights not to take them away.

Martin Luther King Jr. owned a firearms. The first members of the National Rifle Association were African-Americans, to protect themselves from the Ku Klux Klan.

Another question I neglected to ask: why would Lewis want to sit next to Janice Hahn? David Cicilline?
As mayor of Providence, the city was less safe, crime rates went up, and corruption was just as crappy as before. When he’s not pushing LGBT “rights” down other people’s throats, he loves to talk up gun control.

Why would John Lewis tarnish his Civil Rights credentials with gun-control?

What is it with these “progressives”?

I wish that more people would understood what was at stake with this “sit-in”. Gun control cannot, will not stop gun crimes, or the haphazard gun violence in our society.

More guns for law-abiding residents, with proper discretion to stop Islamic terrorism and the mentally ill. And if anyone has a problem with that, they can SIT ON IT!


  1. House Rules, Or Rules for Radicals? Rep. Tom McClintock remarks on the Democrat sit-in "On the afternoon of June 22nd, a large number of Democrats brought the deliberations of the House of Representatives to a standstill in one of the most disgraceful and childish breaches of decorum in the history of this institution. In complete contempt of this House and the rule of law, they shouted down all with whom they disagreed, they blocked access to the microphones as members sought to address the chair, and they illegally occupied the Hall of the House – forcing an early adjournment and costing this House three full days of legislative deliberations..."

    1. Excellent points. I am a major McClintock fan. I voted for him for Governor in 2003!
