They banned drinks over 16oz. That’s the very definition of being authoritarian

Can't have that evil soda lobby (probably run by republicans) making everyone fat.

It'd be one thing if the draconian gun laws were limited to NYC and not spreading to the rest of the state, but unfortunately that's exactly what's happening.

WOW ny city is a authoritarian shithole.


The last I checked, NYC is only the 63rd worst city in the US for homicides. What was it like back in the 80's?

Not saying it's all down to gun control but it seems to have at least helped.

What ever happened to the "they can get guns from across state lines" defense? Or does that only count when a anti-gun city has bad crime?
Most of the time I have no idea what the hell I'm doing or talking about.

”Many forms of government have been tried and will be tried in this world of sin and woe.
No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is
the worst form of government, except for all the others that have been tried from time to time." -
Winston Churchill, 1947.

"Rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon – so long as there is no answer to it – gives claws to the weak.” - George Orwell

The 2nd Amendment is not completely off limits yes, but it is still a right that should be regulated under reasonable and logical laws, just like the First amendment in which you can't yell fire in a crowded theater or slander, or threaten with violence, but many of the current regulations on guns are completely ludicrous, absurd, and nonsensical since firearms are a constitutional right and not a privilege, which many States, e.g. New York, Massachusetts, California, Hawaii, etc behave like its a privilege rather than a right and regulate it with absurd and borderline unconstitutional laws.

You cannot uphold one right (Neo-Nazis or Antifa being able to spew their bullshit publicly) while also limiting one right to it almost being an hassle to have than a right (NY being on your ass about type of firearms and carry permits costing so much money). Its simply hypocritical and does authoritarian in nature.

Except they do other things than restrict guns or soda. Like violent suppression of dissent, for example. It doesn't matter what you feel but regulation of firearms isn't comparable to a government actively working against people. Your """""""""""argument""""""""" is saying that crimes against humanity and the regulation of firearms are comparable.

Which is plainly silly from any reasonable point of view.

"Authoritarian shit holes restrict rights"
Yes like in Cuba, after the revolution the Committtees for the Defense of the Revolution CDRs were authorized by the Cuban government to search homes and collect guns from people, they do not need a search warrant from a Court of law, in Cuba a CDR activist member can call the police and say, Compañero, a gusano worm has insulted the revolution and I think he has a gun, the police dont need a search warrant from a Court of Law, we call them Chivatos in our nation, Informers.

I am not making this up, the CDRs watch what other people do and report you for anything, against the Revolution.

As a Conservative Republican, I do support background checks and keeping guns away from the mentally ill, but any one can snap and commit a crime with any kind of weapon, it happens, so I hope gun control activists are not successful.

That may not cause them to be a shithole, but this in addition to other laws makes it pretty terrible to live in.

Frankly, no gun control is the appropriate amount of gun control.

Not to mention rights that clearly violate our own constitution.
What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
