Armed man tries to carjack (anti-gun, hypocrite, Democrat) MO State Senator Jamilah Nasheed

In the news again after her recent arrest for packing in heat, I wonder I wonder how Mrs. Nasheed is feeling this morning about all of her anti-2nd Amendment votes in Missouri over the past few years?

65451ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-Missouri State Senator Jamilah Nasheed became a victim of violence in the city of St. Louis. Just after midnight Saturday, Nasheed tweeted that she had just had a gun pointed at her while getting out of her car.

St. Louis police released a report on the incident. A man approached the 41-year old after she had parked her car outside her home in the 4000 block of Olive. The suspect pointed a gun at Nasheed, demanding her keys. She refused and the suspect got back in his car and drove away.

The suspect is described as a black male, 20-25 years old, 120-130 lbs., 5’2″-5’3″, with a thin build, medium brown complexion, brown eyes, and black hair…. via Fox2news

This staunch gun-control trooper has voted to: Prohibit schools from having guns available to them, to increasing firearms taxes and gun control measures, to prohibit State employees form having firearms in their vehicles. make it more difficult to obtain CC permits.  I wonder if she is reconsidering the wisdom of any of these measures?

I, too, wonder if the homeboy who stuck his 9 in her temple was disincentivied by any of them as well.

GE Rant: Sen. Bob Menedez’ (D-NJ) OpEd arguing why New Jersey’s unconstituional gun laws need to go national | APP

GE Rant Warning (long):  I am loathe, loathe to wade into the morass of the 2nd Amendment discussion because so many of you are smarter and more well informed than I.  But as the top of my head is about to come off, I will keep this brief and – likely – unintelligible.

In my opinion Senators Mendenez, Lautenberg, Schumer and their ilk are morally bankrupt,  deluded or simple.  These men are career pols, public parasites and – at heart – each is a collectivist and authoritarian in my view.  They value and defend only their own life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, yours and mine is a problem to be managed for the ‘common good.’

Schumer may, from time to time, visit his wife Iris Weinshall for lunch in the Bronx (she’s on CUNY’s public teat. Tt’s a family thing)  … but we are assured he is driven only to the good section. Lautenberg leaves New Jersey spends his weekends and summers in Martha’s Vineyard where – to the best of my knowledge – the Crips and MS-13 have yet to gain a foothold.  Menendez seems to have his staffers writing disjunct, illogical falsehoods about his states gun control laws, while he and his security detail are likely off on a summer trip sponsored by the AFL-CIO or the Bankers Association. Menendez opines:

It could have happened here in New Jersey. We knew this as we learned of the horrible gun violence that erupted in Aurora, Colo., July 20. Continue reading
