Richard Aborn, president of the Citizens Crime Commission of New York City, said the run on guns and ammunition isn't surprising and is fueled by "gross exaggerations," when reasonable discussion is what's needed.'Reasonable discussion, eh? I guess that's why the law had to be jammed through in a midnight session w/ no discussion or public debate? Or am I 'grossly exaggerating'?
And some people just don't pay attention:
"I don't want to call them doomsdayers, but people get on these blogs on the Internet and they drive people's fears," he said. "They do not want to wait around and see."Yet:
The tax rumor was fueled by proposals in Connecticut, California and Illinois that haven't advanced.So the ones 'driving people's fears' are the numerous politicians actually pushing for bans, restrictions and taxes. 'These blogs' (like this one) are just reporting it and trying to keep another NY from happening, just like Illinois tried to pull.
So again. Ignorant and/or lying?
