There seems to be three types of politicians in the world.
The first type we might call statesmen. Those are politicians who hold political office because they actually care about doing the right thing, and they want to make the world a better place. These are probably the least common type of politician, and we need more of these types of people.
The second type of politician may be the most common type. Their decisions aren’t based on you or on what is the right thing or anything remotely unselfish or honorable. These politicians are completely self-serving, and every decision that they make is for personal gain (or to avoid personal loss). How that decision affects anyone else is purely incidental to them.
The last type of politician may be the worst type of all, though. This third type is in politics because they hate you and the ideas that you support. This type of politician would just as soon see you dead than to do anything that might help you (unless they had to help you to save their career). We might call this last type of politician “the evil politician.”
Some people will certainly disagree with me on this, but I’m beginning to think, more and more, that New York Governor Kathy Hochul is one of the third type of politician.
At least if you support the Second Amendment.
If you think that I’m kidding, you should see the tweet posted by Gun Owners of America (hat tip to here for the lead). You can see the tweet below along with enlarged images of the two documents in the tweet.
Notice the third point in the second image above, which is an enlargement of the top of the first image of the document.
Did you catch that? “Anyone carrying a firearm is presumed to be carrying unlawfully until proven otherwise.”
Never mind “innocent until proven guilty.” Never mind the idea that you have a right to carry a firearm to protect yourself and your family from both criminals and from tyranny.
Nope. You’re guilty (and, therefore, likely to be shot by law enforcement) until they find out that they were wrong. And, then, let’s be honest, qualified immunity is likely to be abused there to protect those who violate their oath to uphold the Constitution by trying to strip you of your Constitutional rights.
This is absolutely inexcusable, and New York Governor Kathy Hochul is a tyrant who needs to be impeached for violating the Constitution.
