‘Totally Reasonable’ Gun-Grabber Police Chief Has Huge ‘But’
“Virginia Beach’s Police Chief calls for ‘reasonable’ gun law reforms,” WTKR News 3 Norfolk reported.
“All the recommendations that we’re asking for are totally reasonable,” Chief Jim Cervera assured viewers. He’d returned from a Major Cities Chiefs’ Association meeting, where “the group updated its firearms violence policy. ”
So what do the politically-appointed urban enforcers call “reasonable”?
“Adopted by a vote of Chiefs at their meeting, the new policy statement includes calling on Congress to:
- Adopt a Universal Background Check for all gun sales and transfers;
- Expand screening for prohibited buyers to include persons with violent mental health history;
- Seek “Red Flag” measures to prevent guns from reaching persons who threaten violence and murder; and
- Urge legislation that permits court orders barring gun purchases in domestic violence cases
In other words, end private sales, erode due process and impose prior restraints.
That’s in addition to “legislative positions” that include banning citizens from keeping firearms suitable for militia purposes and prohibiting them from bearing arms where the government dictates it is forbidden.
You know, “reasonable” stuff.
“I’m very passionate about it because I’ve seen the carnage weapons cause on the street,” Cervera proclaimed, attributing properties to inanimate objects simply not found in reality.
“Cervera says he believes in the second amendment, but… ” the report elaborates.
When you consider the Second Amendment mandates “shall not be infringed,” that’s an awful big “but” the chief is sporting there. It’s so huge, some would consider it monstrous and deformed.
“My message to them is let’s take this emotion out of the conversation, ” Chief Cervera concluded after poking the bear. “Let’s look at what is rational. ”
Yeah, Chief, swear an oath to uphold the Constitution and then tell Americans you want to eviscerate a fundamental right you have no moral claim to, and punish any who disobey you. Meanwhile, you and yours will be the “Only Ones” keeping and bearing the very arms the Founders identified as the birthright of the people.
That ought to take the emotion out of the conversation. That expectation seems “totally reasonable” and “rational.”
