Beware Unloaded Guns

According to one of California’s moonbat rulers, “There’s been a lot of people that have been shot by an unloaded gun.” Seeing is believing:

Having our liberties trampled by these useless cretins is the ultimate indignity.

On a tip from Ghost of FA Hayek.

    The kind of statement that is to be expected from any elected official in California.

  • Son of Taz

    Perhaps this effin’ idiot would care to demonstrate how an unloaded gun injures.

    Maybe she could beat in her head with the gun?

  • Mike T

    It’s a metaphor. The first thing someone says to the cops in an accidental shooting case, is, ‘I didn’t know the gun was loaded’. Hence, people get shot with empty guns, in law enforcement parlance.

  • Metalhead

    I’ve often said that many people are killed with unloaded guns so I understand what the councilwoman was saying. However, I think the point she was making went right over the news agency’s collective heads.

  • Stephan The Original

    Ahem. Well, Sandy, I guess then I bought a house with a bank account devoid of money too.

    I can only wonder what fellow countermoonbats here have been able to do by applying Sheedy’s logic to their lives. The possibilities are endless:

    Feed the world with empty bags (once filled with rice)
    Drive a car while on empty forever
    etc. etc.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    “Whether loaded or not, it still represents a threat”.
    The threat being the possibility of that firearm being used to avert the impending tyranny this councilwoman and the lapdog media reporting wish to impose.

    How about the “accidental” deaths of tens of millions during the Great Leap Forward ?

    Sacramento: Where Petty Personal Politics Trumps Progressive Public Policy

    This is the story of a politician touting a phony poll on a controversial topic meant to stir people up for no good reason.

    Sacramento City Councilwoman Sandy Sheedy says her poll shows that city residents want an up or down vote on the financing of a new arena in the downtown railyard.
    In reality, Sheedy’s poll is horse manure disguised as public policy.

    It’s not about letting the people decide. It’s about trying to undermine the top initiative of Mayor Kevin Johnson because Johnson is undoubtedly running a candidate against Sheedy next year. This is vendetta-driven.

    Since she helped Johnson get elected in 2008, Sheedy has turned into his chief nemesis. From my vantage point, Sheedy wanted deference from KJ and a seat in his inner circle.

    But the Lord Mayor don’t play that.

    Then KJ began a push to enhance his powers as mayor and the battle was joined. If Sheedy didn’t grow to despise KJ, she gave a pretty good imitation of it.

    That’s the political back story, but this stunt with the poll is also dead wrong as policy.

    If Sheedy really believes the right thing to do is to turn the arena issue over to voters, then why have a City Council at all?

    I suppose she might feel differently if a mugger stuck a gun in her face.

  • Anon

    Too bad her father wasn’t shooting blanks.

    “whether it’s loaded or not,it still presents a threat”…as what,a club ?
    …it ain’t loaded ’till there’s a cartridge in the breach,honey

  • procyon

    and guam will tip over and capsize from an influx of population, why do we elect people with room temprature iq’s ????

  • Dr. 9

    Her statement makes perfect sense out in Mexifornia.

  • Jimbo

    I grew up being taught that an “unloaded gun” kills by accident, and that’s why all firearms in the house were always fully loaded.

    “Mike T says: January 13, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    It could be, but to this individual, I seriously doubt it.

    Someone noted that an unloaded weapon could still be fired…..out of a cannon.

  • bobdog

    Don’t look now. There’s an assault magazine sneaking up on us in the bushes right now. Don’t turn your head. Back away slowly and don’t make any sudden moves.

    More “ladies” talking about things and making laws they know nothing about.

    Of all the comments that have and will be made on this thread – YOU NAILED IT! This applies to so many UTTERly stupid rules and regulations we are living with today!

  • TED

    IF she had ever had any traning on the handeling of guns she would know you ALWAYS treat them as if they were loaded. #1 rule!.

  • James McEnanly

    I can see being killed by a blank cartridge, if it is held close enough, but the only way you can be killed by an unloaded gun is if someone hits you hard enough with it. But then it is just like a lead pipe, candle stick or monkey wrench, a blunt instrument.

  • Sarge

    The law is ridiculous. Why would a legal gun holder want to carry an unloaded gun to begin with?

  • Rotohammer

    Yeah, and whether the fetus is full term or not, it still represents a human life.

    Well that explains her face.

    I can see being killed by a blank cartridge, if it is held close enough,

    James – Years ago, 1984, the actor Jon Erik Hexum accidentally killed himself by putting a movie gun, .44 Mag. with a blank in it, to his head and pulling the trigger on the set at CBS. The blast drove a piece of his skull the size of a quarter into his brain. This moron had no training or background in firearms or he would have known the danger. This type of act is of course counted by the left as a gun related death when they should call it a stupid related death.

  • snuss

    I was also taught to treat any gun as loaded (until you PERSONALLY verify that it is not), and only to point it at something (or someone) that you intend to shoot.

    Following those rules religiously would significantly reduce the number of “accidental” shootings.
