Thumbs down McChrystal calls for Tougher Gun Control

Retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal Tuesday threw his support behind calls for tougher gun control legislation, beginning with a possible ban on military-style assault weapons that he said have no place on the streets of America.


When will you warmongering dumbsh*ts realize that big govt and big military is a threat to our Constitutional rights?

Second source anybody? He swore an oath to defend the COTUS. Most military do not support gun control. If he said this, he is an idiot.

He also voted for Obama.
It is fitting that he got fired for that.

I guess he does not understand the Constitution very well.
The 2nd is not about hunting and fishing.
I'm buying more handguns.

It probably went something like this:

Obammy says to the four star dip shit: “Hey while you’re bending over for us on the Rolling Stone article, you need to also get on the Gun Control band wagon with us. You see that young Marine Corporal that wrote that letter to Nancy Polousy is putting a big dent in our spin. So we need a higher ranking Military man to get on our side with this. “

“There will be a nice reach around in it for you later I promise”

Is it really surprising that Stanley would want to have the real world like his world. No where is there a more textbook perfect gun free zone than on a military reservation. Major Hasan knew that and was able to kill and wound 42 people at Fort Hood, not a particular difficult task when no one else is armed. Maybe General McChrystal is right. Only the military should have guns and only when they are on a killing mission oversees.

No Surprise it happened on former Congressman Joe Scarboroughs MSNBC show. Former Talk Show host, Minister and Presidential Candidate Chuck Baldwin had less than kind words to say about Joes character and change of hear on the issue of Gun Control.

Ahh, what else can you expect from a guy who fails to comprehend the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights when he has spent a life time barking out orders, killing people and controlling the behavior of others.

He represented the interests of the Army wherever he was sent to do our bidding, likely with little concern for the "rights" of others no matter where we sent him or who we sent him with.

Wasn't he the guy who was relieved of duty over a scandal?

Well,

There are a lot of General Officers that dont think troops should own guns, Ive run into several. There are some good Generals but McCrystal is a political animal. Im glad hes gone.

Well we're big rock singers
We got golden fingers
And we're loved everywhere we go
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
At ten thousand dollars a show
We take all kinda pills
That give us all kinda thrills
But the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone


Wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover the cover of the Rollin' Stone


I got a freaky old lady
Name a Cocaine Katie
Who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor ol' grey haired Daddy
Drivin' my limousine
Now it's all designed
To blow our minds
But our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone


Wanna see my pictures on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smiling face
On the cover the cover of the Rollin' Stone


We gotta lotta little teenage blue-eyed groupies
Who'll do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian guru
Who's teachin' us a better way
We got all the friends that money can buy
So we never have to be alone
And we keep gettin' richer, but we can't get our picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone


Wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone
Gonna see my picture on the cover
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
Gonna see my smiling face
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone

Most cops claim the same. Get on a sight like officer.com, lightfighter, and others and look at the multiple restrictions each group favors on the who, what, when, where, and how of firearms ownership....for civilians of course.

I thought the .223 5.56 was made to not do as much body damage, unlike the 30-06 & .308 7.62x51 witch would do to much damage in war. What kind of gen. was he that he doesn't know that. I think a video game gen. would know then him.

I was under the understanding that generals and military in general are to stay out of civilian politics? Is this a new Obombunist policy?

Colin Powell was interviewed by USA Today back in the mid to late 1990s he and was also an advocate for strong anti-gun laws.

And as I said before, it would be a good idea to read opinions posted on sites catering to lower ranking mil & LE that are "pro-gun" about what the details of their being pro-gun actually is.

Time to broaden the focus here a bit.
To understand Stanly,one must look at what is going on with the general staff command, and at corporate structure and policy.
Today's commanding officers have been groomed to be part of the "corporate system". Thats where a select few live lives far removed from every day folks.
They are SO removed that their continued access to this special club ,with all the benifits, is their PRIME directive,

In other words , even though our military accadamies have educated many fine officers over the years, both the circirculum and the path to advancement have been co-opted by the big corporations ,in persuit of global domination. ON OUR DIME

the generals that get promoted are usually self agrandizing YES MEN. they look at those who do the real work with the same distain as the head of goldman sacs looks at the janitor. [ both work in the same bld, but the chairman needs the janitor to keep his bathroom clean and the lobby floor buffed--, where as the general needs some grunts to walk point and "take one for the gipper" so as to ensure THEIR continued position at the top of the heap and elite lifestyles]

YES!

That is why we need to drastically reduce our military down to the size it is need to do what it supposed to, defend our physical country.

We have a massive military complex who's interest is perpetual war, shearing the taxpayers and even more power.

It is inevitable that their pursuit of more power eventually would mean an assault on our Constitutional rights.

Just because an individual serves honorably in the US military, doesn't make them immune from being a left wing idiot.

And once again go peruse Mil & LE forums and you will find those who have not (may never) achieve a high ranking also casting their lot with the anti 2nd Amendment side. But they will tell you they are pro-gun...except for this, that, and the other.

Generals? HELL, anyone above light colonel....last US military officer that I personally knew and spoke with on a regular basis WHO WAS WORTH A DAMN AS A PATRIOT was Captain, US Army Reserve, who served two tours in Iraq...who was HONEST ENOUGH to to say to me "I don't know WTF we're doing there....it's not worth anyone's life." I listened A LOT to what he had to say. Another comment by him: "The bullshit if off the charts..."

BTW, we had these conversations at a gun club which we both belonged.

Perfumed Princes.....And you think the military is on YOUR SIDE? Oh...but then again, a lot of you ***** are so cathected to the military that the uniform gets you all goose-pimply and you figure it's some 'brother'...

Yeah...just like the cops.

First, this asshole was a ranger and not SF.

Second, all Army officers are political asswipes if they want to be promoted.

Third, all officers are subject to having their retirement canceled if they piss off the PTB.


From personal experience, most officers think that enlisted people are trash, stupid, or a combination of these two attributes. However, from my experience this is actually a reflective thought.

Most officers are college smart and life stupid!


As far as training goes in SF, the officers did not train with us peon enlisted people. They did not have to master the physical requirements we had to master or the actual physical or and they did not have to pass a mental capabilities exam like we had to pass.

Officer meant: arrogant elitist that was too far above us peons to be bothered with actually having a pair of balls, being able to admit you're wrong, or with having the ability to meet the standards you set for the peons.

Mutter , Thanks for correcting me. I feel a "little" bit better that he wasn't group.

Oh and I saw the pass O's got at ranger school, so I prolly would'nt call him one, even if he did get the tab.

This article even mentions Stan the gun banner as one of our most mediocre desk jockey generals.

Cliffs: Our generals blow and are mostly promotion seeking politicians and technocrats, while our soldiers are the best in the world and make up for a lot of crappy decisions made by generals and other senior officers with their tactical strength.

And you still might want to go peruse lightfighter to see how many of those soldiers are in line with the good general when it comes to your liberties.

This article even mentions Stan the gun banner as one of our most mediocre desk jockey generals.

Cliffs: Our generals blow and are mostly promotion seeking politicians and technocrats, while our soldiers are the best in the world and make up for a lot of crappy decisions made by generals and other senior officers with their tactical strength.
Things haven't changed much since the 60's when I was in the military.
From my experience most senior officers are ladder climbing ass kissers, otherwise they'd not be where they are.

It has been the fault of both pacifism and liberalism in the past that they have ignored the immense burden of inherited evil under which society and civilization labour and have planned an imaginary world for an impossible humanity. We must recognize that we are living in an imperfect world in which human and superhuman forces of evil are at work and so long as those forces affect the political behaviour of mankind there can be no hope of abiding peace.

That article must have been edited as McChrystal is not mentioned at all in this article.

I swore that he was mentioned when I read the print edition, but maybe not. I know that Michael Yon had nothing good to say about him.
